Government asks justices to intervene on asylum ban

Last month President Donald Trump blasted a ruling by a federal judge in San Francisco that blocked the government from enforcing a rule that would prohibit immigrants who enter the country illegally from requesting asylum. Trump criticized U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar, who issued the order, as an “Obama judge” and predicted that the government would “win that case in the Supreme Court of the United States.” Trump’s comments elicited a rare public rebuke from Chief Justice John Roberts, and tod...

His mind exploded.

James Comey just totally exposed his partisan stance by urging his fellow Democrats to take back the White House in 2020. In other words, he is and has been a Democrat. Comey had no right heading the FBI at any time, but especially after his mind exploded!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) December 11, 2018 [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

Trump "must have said the word ‘wall’ 30 times... It’s like a manhood thing with him — as if manhood can be associated with him — This wall thing."

Politico reports on what Nancy Pelosi said after her meeting today with Trump.Also — incredibly — she said "I was trying to be the mom," and "it goes to show you: You get into a tinkle contest with a skunk, you get tinkle all over you."During the meeting, in the Oval Office, with the cameras running, Trump got ahead of the Democrats' effort to blame a government shutdown on him. He acted like he wanted it: "If we don't get what we want ... I will shut down the government... I am proud to shut do...

Does Size Matter When it Comes to Law Firm Marketing?

At some time, you’ve probably been told that it’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog (especially you litigators!). So while big firms do have some advantages over small to mid-size firms when it comes to resources available for law firm marketing, my experience in working with more than 18,000 attorneys over the past two decades has shown me that size does not have to matter when it comes to out-marketing your competition. That said, I think there are fou...

Disabilities and Accommodation: Diagnosed with a Serious Illness

My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: IL Hello, In September of 2017 I was diagnosed with a serious illness. My employer at the time refused to provide any accommodations for me to continue working, and placed me on an involuntary unpaid leave.

I filed an EEOC charge and the employer lied about my reason for termination. He ...

Conflation of punishment with price system distorts justice in sex-assault cases

We live in an era when "justice" has been defined largely in terms of the price system, as though it were subject to laws of supply and demand. The root theory behind our modern justice system, in large part, holds that punishments are a "price" paid for misconduct and, if they do not deter, it's because the "price" wasn't high enough.Defining punishment abstractly as the "price" of crime generates perverse cultural meanings for victims, prosecutors, jurors, and others engaged with the system. U...
