Prof. Miller quoted by Yahoo News on special criminal courts for veterans

Professor Eric Miller was quoted in a Yahoo News story about the growth in veterans treatment courts across the country and the legal issues at hand. The courts lack uniformity and there is little oversight of the system.


“The law on problem-solving courts is still really, really spotty,” said Eric Miller, a law professor at Loyola who researches the courts.

“No one knows what veterans court is because veterans court is whatever the judge says it is,” Miller said. “It could be a mental health court or a drug court or a PTSD court.”
