RESPONSES TO THE TEN QUESTIONS
4. Is Curtiss-Wright's Characterization of Executive Power Correct?
The Puzzling Persistence of Curtiss-Wright-Based Theories of Executive Power
37 William Mitchell Law Review 5072 (2011)
This is a brief comment on Curtiss-Wright responding to one of the Journal of the National Security Forum's "Ten Questions" for its recently released symposium issue. It describes the origins of Justice Sutherland'scontroversial thesis, canvasses a few of the many critiques of that thesis, and offers a few reflections on why a theory about executive power that has been vigorously criticized by scholars across the ideological spectrum continues to exert an influence out of proportion to its substantive merits.
