Federal Enclave Law
    U.S. Jurisdiction over Federal Areas within the States
                by Roger W. Haines, Jr.

About the Author:


Roger W. Haines, Jr. retired in 2007 after 29 years as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in the Southern District of California.  He wrote a law review article on federal enclaves in 1981, and in the years since then has extensively litigated enclave issues and consulted with other State and federal agencies. For two years he chaired a working group of law enforcement agencies in San Diego that proposed legislation to "retrocede" enclave jurisdiction to the States. This book is the distillation of thirty years of and litigation and research. Mr. Haines is also the co-author of the best-selling book on the Federal Sentencing Guidelines, Federal Sentencing Guidelines Handbook (West Publishing, 2010-11), and two bi-weekly newsletters, Federal Sentencing Guide, and Ninth Circuit Criminal Law Reporter (James Publishing, 2011). He is on the Board of Advisors of the Federal Sentencing Reporter, and has been a member of the Ninth Circuit Rules Committee.

About the book:

This is the first treatise on federal enclave law since the government's 1957 Interdepartmental Report. It comprehensively orgainzes the confusing case law, and explains where the 1957 Report went wrong, in clear, understandable language. It also discusses recent cases holding that, contrary to 100 years of interpretation, some National Forests in North Carolina, Oklahoma and Michigan are under concurrent enclave jurisdiction. The book includes a description of enclaves by federal agency, particular State laws that apply (or do not yet apply) to federal enclaves, including wage and hour law, whistleblower  and anti-discrimination laws, and right to work laws. Criminal topics include the Assimilative Crimes Act, the Posse Comitatus Act,  and the Federal Crimes Act of 1790. A chapter is devoted to the the relation of the Enclave Clause to the Supremacy Clause. There is also a detailed description of the checkerboard of jurisdiction on federal property in the Southern District of California.  The book is hardcover, 346 pp., including 20 colored jurisdictional maps of Navy properties and an extensive Descriptive Word Index.
