Very nice work at Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook Cty. v. Army Corps of Engineers. WP:law could use more people who show such attention to detail! Andrew Gradman talk/WP:Hornbook 00:44, 17 March 2010 (UTC)

PS What year of law school are you in?

Law work[edit]

Hey there! I assume you're an American law editor? Myself and a couple of Australians are planning to get Rylands v Fletcher up to Featured Article status, part of which involves explaining how it is interpreted in each jurisdiction. Would you be interested in helping out? Ironholds (talk) 02:54, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Hey, thanks for editing the page for the Rutgers Journal of Law & Public Policy. I am the current Editor-in-Chief of this publication. Drop me a line on my talk page, and let me know if you're interested in working on some articles together. I'm currently doing some research and writing on red light cameras.

Public Policy Initiative Recruiting Assessors for Spring[edit]

Hi Legalskeptic,

I saw some of your contributions on a few articles (Foster care, Superfund, CERCLA - I think) that fall within the scope of Wikiproject: United States Public Policy, and I was hoping you would be interested in assessing articles with the Public Policy Initiative. There is more info about assessment on the 9/13/2010 Signpost. We could really use someone with your expertise, so if you're interested or just curious you can sign up on the project page or just contact me. Thanks! ARoth (Public Policy Initiative) (talk) 03:37, 4 March 2011 (UTC)

I posted a reply on my talk page ARoth (Public Policy Initiative) (talk) 19:06, 4 March 2011 (UTC)
hi Legalskeptic,
If you can, we would LOVE your involvement. A new assessment round is posted. The assessment metric we are using is at WP:USPP/Assessment. This round is mostly starts and stubs, so evaluation should be really quick. WP:USPP Assessment 2.1
The Public Policy Initiative is super exciting this term. The topics are really interesting this term and the student's are producing some really good quality content. Recent numbers indicate that our project is actually contributing a significant amount of content to Wikipedia. There is a group of about 20 subject matter experts who are assessing, but the Wikipedians are so consistent, that I really need your scores to measure article quality.
On another note, are you going to Wikimania? I am looking for people to co-present with, so let me know if you are! Best, ARoth (Public Policy Initiative) (talk) 20:44, 1 April 2011 (UTC)

WP:USPP Spring Assessment 3[edit]

hi LegalSkeptic,

If you have time to assess a few articles it would be very appreciated. There is a new assessment posted here. There are 25 articles in both this assessment and the next/final assessment, and both sets have a few legal cases where your input would be valuable. There was a huge amount of content that got added this term, hopefully the randomly selected articles will show it to be high quality. Please, let me know if you have any comments or questions about research with the Public Policy Initiative. ARoth (Public Policy Initiative) (talk) 19:53, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Last Public Policy Initiative assessment![edit]

hi Legalskeptic,

If you are interested, at least 5 of the articles in this round are recent legal cases. This is the last assessment request for the Public Policy Initiative! I was really impressed with the content the students developed this term, so if you get a chance check it out. The last set of articles is at Student Post 2.2. I will keep you updated on results and publications. Thanks ARoth (Public Policy Initiative) (talk) 05:38, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Sorry, I'm on a wikibreak while I study for the bar exam. I won't be back until August. LegalSkeptic (talk) 13:32, 11 June 2011 (UTC)

Collaboration on US Supreme Court case article improvement[edit]

Hi, Legalskeptic, I noticed you had previously contributed to this article.

Wehwalt and myself will be collaborating together to improve the quality of this article. You are welcome to help out with research, writing, and copyediting. :) -- Cirt (talk) 18:41, 15 June 2011 (UTC)

Hey there Legalskeptic! :) Just a heads up, Wehwalt (talk · contribs) and I decided to do a Quality Improvement Drive on a different article to start out with. I just created the article on the U.S. Supreme Court case, Time, Inc. v. Hill. You're welcome to contribute and/or help with research, at the new article's talk page. Cheers, — Cirt (talk) 00:37, 10 July 2011 (UTC)

Could you take a look at my FACs[edit]

My friend, User:DavidinNJ and I nominated Alcohol laws of New Jersey for Featured Article Status back in February. The nomination has been slow. As I see you're involved with NJ articles and legal topics, would it be possible for you to take a look at the article and perhaps consider offering support to its FA candidacy, located here: Wikipedia:Featured article candidates/Alcohol laws of New Jersey/archive1? I appreciate your time and attention to this cause.--ColonelHenry (talk) 16:18, 6 April 2013 (UTC)

Requested move 29 January 2014 - Unification of Hispaniola into Haiti be renamed and moved to Unification of Hispaniola[edit]

Hello there fellow scholar/editor,

There is a talk page on this subject and since you have an interest in the discussion I would love to hear your views on it as well. I've responded with my viewpoints against the potential move as you will soon see why. I thank you for your time. Savvyjack23 (talk) 18:48, 29 January 2014 (UTC)

It has the authority to enact binding solutions for disputes between editors, primarily related to serious behavioural issues that the community has been unable to resolve. This includes the ability to impose site bans, topic bans, editing restrictions, and other measures needed to maintain our editing environment. The arbitration policy describes the Committee's roles and responsibilities in greater detail. If you wish to participate, you are welcome to review the candidates' statements and submit your choices on the voting page.
