Moritz Alum's OSLJ Note Cited in SCOTUS Opinion

An opinion issued today by the United States Supreme Court cited a student note from the Ohio State Law Journal written by Moritz alum Conrad Bower ('13). The opinion was a concurrence to a cert denial in the case of Taylor v. Yee, written by Justice Alito and joined by Justice Thomas. The opinion is currently available on the Supreme Court's website. Mr. Bower's note, Inequitable Escheat?: Reflecting on Unclaimed Property Law and the Supreme Court's Interstate Escheat Framework, 74 Ohio St. L.J. 515 (2013), along with the entire run of the Ohio State Law Journal, can be found on OSU's open access institutional repository, the Knowledge Bank.
