State-Level Private Enforcement Is Much More Complicated Than Previously Thought

Most of the scholarship on private enforcement, in which individual citizens sue to enforce legal statutes, has focused on federal-level laws. In new research, Diego A.

They conclude that research on state-level private enforcement demands much more attention than previously provided.
