Whether a state attorney general should be an activist vis-a-vis the federal government is certainly current fare, and so this 2010 Podcast of the Federalist Society on the proper role of an attorney general still makes for interesting listening today. Fast forward the audio to 33:37 if you want to hear me go back and forth on AG activism with U.S. Senator Ted Cruz who was then a private attorney. And listen to the entire podcast to know that some things just don't change.
