Jim Lindgren, extortion, and the Supreme Court:

Jim’s post below led me to look up the case he Supreme Court he mentioned, Evans v. United States. I had known that Jim had written about extortion and also about blackmail, but I hadn’t remembered the role of his article in Evans. Having looked at the case again, let me just say that this is the sort of citation by Supreme Court opinions that we law professors dream about. (“The Court’s historical analysis rests upon a theory set forth in one law review article,” the dissent complained.) I am even more impressed by Jim than I had been before.
