Climbing onto my roof and screaming this tweet until I pass out
It’s not just qualified immunity, though: fed courts doctrine is riddled with post-Warren Court dilutions of substantive rights. Narrowing Article III standing, cutting back on implied causes of action, expanding state sovereign immunity. The list goes on
If you can’t get into court and get paid, your substantive right is worthless, and the Burger, Rehnquist, and Roberts Courts have leveraged justiciability and immunities doctrines to undercut substantive rights they disfavor

I'm on track to be a panelist on seven moots this semester -- so, friends, I think it's time for a moot thread.
Being a moot panelist is a big responsibility! The advocate is relying on you to anticipate the weaknesses in their arguments and help them decide how to respond. To do it well, you have to prepare (and prepare, and prepare some more).
First, I skim the briefs and look for the most important authorities the parties fight about. Do the briefs disagree about how to interpret a key statute or precedent? Are they leaning heavily on certain parts of the record? Jot those down.
