"Drone Contractors: An Oversight and Accountability Gap"
News reports have highlighted the crisis of drone pilot burnout in the United States military. Pilot shortages have even prompted the U.S. Air Force to cut the number of drone flights and increase the use of contractors on missions. In a new op-ed for "Just Security," Laura A. Dickinson, Oswald Symister Colclough Research Professor of Law, raises concerns about the oversight and accountability of this contractor use—especially as drone use becomes increasingly prevalent. "We simply don't know enough about how contractors will be used in the increasingly automated version of war that appears to be our future," she writes.

The Latest Gerrymander: Voters Instead of People
This fall, the U.S. Supreme Court will hear arguments in Evenwel v. Abbott, a case which challenges how states draw their legislative districts—districts that have enormous implications for our nation's politics. Currently, districts are decided based on the number of people in an area, but the plaintiffs argue that the Equal Protection Clause requires states to use the number of voters instead. In an op-ed for The Huffington Post, Alan Morrison, Lerner Family Associate Dean for Public Interest and Public Service Law, writes about why states must continue to base districts on population if equality is to be assured.

Professor Finds Flaw in AIG Ruling
On June 15, Judge Thomas Wheeler issued a decision in the high-profile AIG bailout case, but that ruling has a critical problem according to Visiting Associate Professor of Law Michael P. Goodman. In an op-ed for National Law Journal, Professor Goodman points out that the case—based on the takings clause of the Fifth Amendment—must be decided by an Article III judge with a lifetime appointment. Judge Wheeler serves on the U.S. Court of Federal Claims, an Article I court subject to the control of Congress and the president. Professor Goodman's conclusion is based on research described in one of his recent papers in the Villanova Law Review.
