article description
The new frontlines in the statutory interpretation battles are the states. And the most interesting part is that, in at least some states, the battles don't seem to be battles at all. Whereas on the federal side, the now-stale fight between textualist and purposivist statutory interpreters continues to repeat, some state courts seem to be engaged in an entirely different and more productive set of conversations about interpretive predictability - conversations that are relevant not only to the states having them, but to federal interpreters as well.
