Simon J. Dodd is an Indiana-based convert, law nerd, originalist, moderate pro-life Republican, Scalia / Sykes / Easterbrook fan, occasional Wikipedian, and all-around nerd. Since my primary interests are in law and legal theory, courts, and Catholicism, most articles I contribute to are in those areas.

I contribute to the group blog Stubborn Facts and write about Catholic issues at the blog Motu Proprio. My SSRN page is here.

All users, try though we might, come to Wikipedia with biases, opinions, and perspectives that color how we contribute here, no matter how hard we may try to adhere to WP:NPOV. The best solution is full disclosure. In that spirit, here are some of mine.
