An expert’s take on jurisdiction stripping

In previous posts (here and here) I’ve tried to understand the constitutionality of HR 3133. The bill would strip jurisdiction over DOMA cases from Federal courts. I learned that Congressional control over jurisdiction is a complex and poorly defined area of constitutional law, and I came away with no clear understanding of HR 3133’s constitutionality.

Eugene Volokh offers an expert’s view on his blog this week, with a link to course notes by Gary Rowe. The latter are especially useful to frame the various positions, and well worth reading.
