WestLaw featured Haub Law Professor Randolph McLaughlin in "KKK Act suit against Trump evokes violent past, troubled present"

It's a disturbing sign of the times that the Ku Klux Klan Act of 1871, which was enacted amid widespread post-Civil War racial violence, is increasingly en vogue. The law was used to sue the group responsible for the deadly white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia in 2017.

The Iran nuclear deal made the world safer and less at risk of nuclear proliferation. The agreement cut off all the pathways to an Iranian bomb.
