Abstract

This article describes the representation of Muhammad Ali in the federal case that led to restoration of his boxing license in New York State and ultimately in other jurisdictions. An unusual aspect of the litgation is the manner in which the author's childhood experiences led him to the theory that ultimately persuaded a federal court to find the actions of the New York Athletic Commission unconstitutionally arbitrary and capricious.
