This week's edition of Swan's Picks features the reversal at the trial court level of the Texas "Death Star" preemption bill. The Texas AG has vowed to appeal. For Managing Editor, any state bill that contains a Star Wars reference is a strong contender to be included in the first state and local government law class of the semester, and this was in mine. Anything highly salient that you included in Class 1 (profs)? Any cases or legislation from IRL that you want to lift up (practitioners)? Send us your pitches--they can go direct to email@example.com . There sure is a lot to talk about. Enjoy the holiday weekend.
