Oh, too good to pass up. Although it's probably not a good idea to pass up zombies, or pass by zombies, if you see them on a road, or walking toward you, or anywhere in your vicinity. See Dawn of the Dead (1978), Night of the Zombies (1981), Humans Versus Zombies (2011), Pro Wrestlers Vs Zombies (2014)....you get the idea. Probably best to avoid zombies all together, though if you are a human rights lawyer, it might be a way to build your practice.
William Baude, University of Chicago Law School, has published Zombie Federalism. See the abstract below.
The most natural question to ask about zombies and constitutional law is whether zombies are persons within the meaning of the Constitution. But that question turns out to be remarkably difficult. The word "person" appears repeatedly throughout the Constitution, but without any clues about whether it extends to zombies.
What’s the best constitutional solution to this problem? Zombie Federalism. The Constitution does not resolve the question of zombie personhood, so we should understand it to leave that question to state law.Download the paper (very short) from SSRN at the link.
