Professor Thomas McAffee Quoted in the Las Vegas Sun

Thomas McAffee is a William S. Boyd Professor of Law.

On July 11, he was quoted in the Las Vegas Sun article Constitutional scholars take notice of lawsuit against Henderson Police citing rare Third Amendment complaint.

"It is fairly hard to imagine the court taking completely serious that the idea of what's going on here is actually a violation of the Third Amendment. I guess it's conceivable," he said of a lawsuit filed after Henderson Police ordered a resident to leave his home so they could use it to gain a "tactical advantage" in a nearby suspected domestic violence case.

Professor McAffee advises the Nevada Law Journal and teaches American Legal History, First Amendment Rights, and Constitutional Law.
