Brandon Hasbrouck has published an exceedingly generous and thought-provoking review of Shielded in the Harvard Law Review. Brandon is an extraordinary writer and thinker - I am so appreciative that he directed those considerable talents to my book. Check it out!

Linda Greenhouse penned a fabulous review of Shielded and The Fear of Too Much Justice, a terrific book written by my mentor and friend Stephen Bright and James Kwak. Greenhouse writes:

"Schwartz maintains that while the concern that ‘public safety will be imperiled by too much oversight’ has always accompanied the desire to hold the police accountable, it is now nearly an unquestioned assumption that lawsuits against the police exact too high a price. . . . But this assumption, Schwartz contends, is a myth that has distorted the civil justice system by persuading judges of the need to insulate the police from accountability."

Portland! I'm headed to your fair city October 26 for two terrific events:

Then, from 7-9pm, Oregon Trial Lawyers Association (OTLA) is hosting a book talk for Shielded at Lovely Rita restaurant (register here:…)

Can't wait!
