Professor Macfarlane Presents “Procedural Animus” at Junior Faculty Federal Courts Workshop

Professor Katherine Macfarlane presented Procedural Animus at the annual Junior Faculty Federal Courts Workshop, held this year at the University of Arkansas. Her paper, available here, considers whether the Prison Litigation Reform Act was motivated by unconstitutional animus. Professor Macfarlane traces the development of animus doctrine, arguing that it was expanded by the Supreme Court’s recent Masterpiece Cakeshop decision. Procedural Animus will be published in a forthcoming volume of the Alabama Law Review. Boise 3L Hayden Marotz served as Professor Macfarlane’s research assistant.
