State AG Tracker

There has been increasingly pronounced discussion concerning the appropriate role of state Attorneys General. Some argue that state AGs have overstepped their role by prosecuting cases and negotiating settlements that have had extraterritorial effects, and sometimes even national effects. Others argue that state AGs are simply serving the interests of their own citizens and, at times, appropriately filling a vacuum left by the failure of others (for example, federal agencies) to attend to these issues. In the light of this debate, the Federalist Society is launching an online service which will periodically highlight recent activities of state Attorneys General.
