Legal Scholarship: The "Star" Footnote

Mark Tushnet

One of the most interesting "star" (acknowledgements) footnotes I've seen in a long time: "Precious debts of gratitude to St Jude Thaddeus for efficacious intervention." (Filling in: St. Jude Thaddeus is the patron saint of lost causes; the footnote does not appear in a law journal published by a school with a religious affiliation, and is not by a scholar teaching at such a law school.)
