Joshua Matz Is Mike Dorf?

June 12th, 2014

In Mike Dorf’s review of Larry Tribe and Joshua Matz’s new book, I was struck by this string of similarities between Dorf and Matz:

Meanwhile, Joshua Matz’s early career in the law thus far looks quite similar to my own a quarter of a century earlier: He has co-authored a book with Tribe (as I did); he’s currently clerking for Judge Reinhardt on the Ninth Circuit (as I did); and will next clerk for Justice Kennedy at the SCOTUS (as I did). As it happens, I also got to know (and like) Matz during the editorial process of a paper I wrote for the Harvard Law Review when he was its Articles Chair.

It seems that Matz is really Dorfing it!
