TX forensic commission punts on drug-field test evaluation

The Texas Forensic Science Commission has completed its legislatively mandated report on the validity of field tests for controlled substances, and it was released today.

Aggressive Coyote Packs In Urban Areas

First, there is Texas. Two joggers were attacked by a coyote in Frisco, Texas on Monday morning, police confirmed. Sheri Devore and Marcia Foster were heading home from their 45-minute run around 5:30 a.m. Monday when the animal allegedly approached the two women and “lunged” at Foster, according to Fox 4. “It knocked her down. I was like trying to grab her to get up. And the overwhelming thought in my head was: ‘just stay up.’ If you go down, that’s it,” Devore told the news station, adding th...

For One Colorado Rancher, An AR-15 Is A Tool To Protect His Herd That day, Scott had laid out some of his guns on the kitchen table. He isn’t sure how many he owns. “I’d have to count them all,” he said with a chuckle. “Twenty-five to 30 I’m guessing. Just off the top of my head.” Scott goes through his collection of firearms, some family heirlooms, some purchased, from hunting rifles to handguns, describing how they work and what kind of ammunition they take. And then, the gun that scares everybody in the world,” Scott said as he unzipped a soft bl...

Academic highlight: Epps and Sitaraman on how to save the Supreme Court

The Supreme Court faces a crisis of legitimacy. The process of selecting new justices has become both contentious and overtly partisan, as illustrated by the Republican-controlled Senate’s refusal to hold hearings or a vote for President Barack Obama’s Supreme Court nominee, followed by the fractious hearings and party-line vote to replace “swing” Justice Anthony Kennedy with Brett Kavanaugh. Now that Kennedy has retired, all nine justices are expected to cast votes in line with the preferences ...

On cusp of enactment of FIRST STEP Act, a brief trip to the archives via the (not-so-)way back machine

I am so full of ideas and thoughts and ways to celebrate the Senate passage of the FIRST STEP Act, I am not sure what to blog first and in the immediate future.  So, rather than do too much looking forward to what the FIRST STEP Act means when it becomes law (especially because I do not want to jinx anything), I figured I would close out my blogging tonight by doing a little looking back.  Specially, I looked at some archives of posts after Prez Trump got elected, and found these interesting pos...

Cleaning and Repairs: Security Deposit and Approved Alterations: Commercial Lease

My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: Georgia My business is renting a commercial building. In our lease it says that we needed to get approval from the landlord for all improvements or alterations. We did get approval via email to make some changes to some of the rooms like adding walls, etc. We are getting ready to leave that building and they are saying that we need to change everything back to the way it was before in order to get our security deposit back even though we...

Can 24002(B) Be Correctable

My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: California I was asked by a friend of mine to drive his truck and a gooseneck trailer to the landfill for him. When I was leaving I was stopped by the CHP for having a taillight out on the trailer. The officer was friendly and I believe cut me a break. The trailer, empty at the time of the stop, had a GVWR of over 10k lbs. The CHP officer informed I needed a class A to tow it. The officer cited me for 24600(a), 24603(a) & 24002(b). ...

After rejection of contentious proposed amendments, FIRST STEP Act passed by Senate by vote of 87 to 12!!!!

In this post back in August I wondered "Could enhanced FIRST STEP Act get more than 90 votes in the Senate if even brought up for a vote?".  Well, it seems I was off by three votes, as tonight the the US Senate voted 87 to 12 to enact the FIRST STEP Act.  With a vote in the House scheduled for later this week, this bill should be on Prez Trump's  desk before the end of this week and law before Prez Trump heads down to Mar-a-Lago for the holidays.  This USA Today article, headlined "Senate passes...

2 Critical Numbers Every Law Firm Must Know

Do you know how much money each lead is really costing you? How much does it cost you to get a new client? Knowing the answers to these questions can mean the difference between a profitable firm and a struggling one.  These numbers are known as “KPIs” — Key Performance Indicators. They are the critical numbers or metrics that run your law firm. Two of the most important KPIs that every law firm should be tracking include: (1) your Cost Per Lead (CPL) and (2) your Cost Per Client (CPC).  There a...

Remembering Why a Non-Partisan Police Force Matters

One of the fundamental premises of a liberal democracy operating according to a particular view of the rule of law is that the police apparatus, while part of the executive branch, must be free of inappropriate political interference, although they may be subject to political direction within acknowledged bounds. Canada is neither a police or military dictatorship; we have civilian governments at all levels. Police have a certain discretion to act; the executive can determine how police resource...
