This reply addresses a response to our article, Congressional Overrides of Supreme Court Statutory Interpretation Decisions, 1967-2011, by Professor Rick Hasen and James Buatti. In this reply, we argue principally that our method of defining and identifying overrides is, by any measure, the correct one and also address other issues raised in Hasen in Buatti's excellent response.
