“The Entire Controversy Doctrine in New Jersey and the Nominal Party Exception: When is the Entire Controversy Not the Entire Controversy?” 23 Rutgers L.J. 341 (1992)
“I am opposed to the death penalty for two reasons: first, humans are never error-free  the process isn’t error-free  and execution is not something you can take back or revisit. Secondly, I feel it is anathema to a democracy for a government to have power over life and death.”
