Professor Jeffrey Stempel Quoted in Las Vegas Review-Journal

Jeffrey Stempel is the Doris S. and Theodore B. Lee Professor of Law at the William S. Boyd School of Law.

Professor Stempel was quoted in an Oct. 18 article by the Las Vegas Review-Journal titled, "Vegas prosecutors used ‘super seal’ to hide fortune seized from gamblers."

In the article, he mentioned the potential risks of sealing court records. Professor Stempel stated, "Excessive use of sealing undermines public confidence in the courts, and I think it creates a danger of bad decision-making when there isn’t enough scrutiny."

Professor Stempel has numerous publications to his credit, including books, treatise chapters and supplements, and law review articles. He is a 1981 graduate of Yale Law School, where he was an editor of the Yale Law Journal and co-founder of the Yale Law and Policy Review.
