We will be posting our analysis of South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., as well as our review of “Finding Law” by Stephen A. Sachs, in the next day or two. In the meantime, given our fascination with all things Bayesian and with the use of probabilistic methods in law, we are adding the following three items (which we will need to print before reading) to our summer reading list:
- Emma H. Geller: Bomb threats and Bayes’ Rule.
- Larry Laudan: Why presuming innocence is not a Bayesian prior.
- David Colquhoun: Statistics and the law: the prosecutor’s fallacy.
- William M. Briggs: There is no prior? What’s a Bayesian to do? Relax, there’s no model, either.
- David Papineau. Thomas Bayes and the crisis of science. (Added to my list on 6/29.)
