Professor Mitch Crusto Featured in Loyola Law Review

An article by Professor Mitch Crusto has been featured in the latest edition of the Loyola University New Orleans Law Review, 61 Loy. L. Rev. 471-523 (Fall 2015).  His lead article titled “State of Emergency: an Emergency Constitution Revisited” analyzes of the constitutionality of emergency statutes of U.S. state governments as they relate to civil liberties.  In the decade following Hurricane Katrina, there have been state declarations of emergencies following the Ferguson, Missouri unrest, the Boston Marathon bombing, and the Ebola outbreak.  Crusto says people's civil liberties were infringed upon in each of these instances.
