Thank the lord, blessed be Mordecai, et cetera. I finally finished the note I've been writing for the Public Law, Policy and Ethics Journal. Not to get too snoozeworthy, but it deals with Doe v. Mann, 415 F.3d 1038 (9th. Cir. 2005), an August 2005 case that dealt with two pieces of federal Indian legislation, with the result that they're both essentially ineffective and the state of California can do whatever it wants with Indian children domiciled on Indian land. Counterintuitive, and therefore wrong. Clearly.

Or something.

Anyways, it's 36 pages plus two lines, with 196 footnotes. I assume both of those will come up a bit if it gets selected for publication, which we all pray it will. It's now in the able hands of the PLPEJ editorial board, which probably has no intention of publishing it. I think, though, that it would be a really good choice to put it in there - we're a young journal, and we could stand to tick on some searches from students out west who are studying Indian law.

Anyways, tonight's Purim, so I'll probably stop by the school and try to grab some fine Jewish food and such. Should be a fun time.
