A video circulating on social media incorrectly claims that officials in the Biden administration have not taken their oaths of office and therefore are serving illegitimately. APPC’s FactCheck.org explains why the video’s claims, and a petition on which they are based, are false, citing commentary from CERL Affiliated Faculty Kermit Roosevelt.
Kermit Roosevelt works in a diverse range of fields, focusing on constitutional law and conflict of laws. He has published scholarly books in both fields. Conflict of Laws (Foundation Press, 2010) offers an accessible analytical overview of conflicts. The Myth of Judicial Activism: Making Sense of Supreme Court Decisions (Yale, 2006) sets out standards by which citizens can determine whether the Supreme Court is abusing its authority to interpret the Constitution.
