For Monday

Wednesday audio. Apologies again for my lateness the last two days; it will not happen again.

We continue with Statutory Abstention and whether § 1983 satisfies the "expressly authorized" exception and why.

We then move to Younger Abstention, covering the first two sections (Basics and Expansion). Focus on Sprint, which was decided after Understanding was written. What is "Our Federalism"? What is the connection between Younger and § 2283? Why was the expansion of Younger beyond injunctions of criminal proceedings warranted or not?

I need all Commentaries to be brought in on Monday. I only have a record of ten people having submitted anything, which cannot be right at this point in the course. So please bring all Commentaries from all subjects.
