A mini-symposium: The tenth anniversary of Crawford

This year marks the tenth anniversary of Crawford v. Washington.  To mark the occasion, First Impressions, the online publication of the Michigan Law Review, has published a mini-symposium, with longer essays by George Fisher of Stanford and Deborah Tuerkheimer of Northwestern, shorter essays by Jeff Fisher of Stanford and me, and a response by Jeff and me, mainly to George's piece.  You can read the whole batch of them, with an introduction by the editors, here.  My thanks to the editors for doing this and to the other authors for participating!

I glanced through these. The one that interested me the most was the one from Deborah Tuerkheimer. I appreciated her entire discussion of the private-public space distinction. She's correct about the historical reasons for its abolition. My guess is that the reason it's making a comeback has to to with the 4A, especially in light of domestic surveillance and gps tracking and the like. It never really went away there but it is getting new stress and that might be the reason it is now popping up in other areas of Constitutional law.
