Hearing on Secret Law
The Senate Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing April 30 on the subject of “secret law.”
“It’s been nearly forty years since Professor Kenneth Davis stated in his seminal treatise on administrative law that ‘Secret law is an abomination’,” according to a Committee announcement.
“The upcoming hearing will examine the extent to which this abomination is gradually becoming a common state of affairs, and its effect on our democracy.”
