Friday Feature Film-Pierson v Post (Business Law Prof)

A recent article (2/12/23) from the Volokh Conspiracy made me think of this excellent video made by Enrique from Prior Probability. Back in November, Enrique referenced a blog post where he provided a written explanation of Pierson v Post (1805) in response to one of my blog entries.

However, after reading his blog entry, I searched for Pierson on YouTube; one of the top search results happened to be Enrique’s video.

Excellent work!!

Posting this video is not intended to provide any commentary on the normative claims encompassing the reproductive rights debate or a critique of the Dobbs ruling.

However, this video does ignite an intriguing debate regarding the interaction of the judicial doctrine of stare decisis and whether there is case law that is unquestionably settled (super-precedents).
