Is It Legal for State to Destroy Repeated 911 Calls in a He-Said-She-Said

My question involves police conduct in the State of: Iowa I tried to restate a problem to another board after an expression of incompetence, and that was deleted. So I will try to further boil it down here. Does relevant evidence include prior 911 calls by a complainer stating that a lawful resident has no right to be in the same neighborhood and must be arrested at his nearby residence for appearing threatening? This complainer made these unilateral claims for years and sheriff once came t...

Inside the Federalist Society

David Montgomery at the Washington Post has written the best piece I’ve read on the Federalist Society in a long, long time. For example: 99% of what the society does isn’t about judicial selection. I’ve been active in the Society since not long after its founding, and Montgomery keeps hitting the target. For example: if you make the rounds of the society’s events, you will get exposed to a stellar array of liberal and left legal talent, because the organization is serious about bringing in ...

The swearing in of Kyrsten Sinema — beautifully distinctive — I approve!

kyrsten sinema swearing-in is a mood — Paddingtweets (@DaneBernardo) January 3, 2019 So, my brilliant AZ fellow residents elected Dem Kyrsten Sinema to a 6-yr term in the U.S. Senate. Ms. Sinema has now demonstrated her bisexual lifestyle as well as her openly anti-religious stance during her swearing in ceremony. Another example of a Dem fooling the electorate. — Jim Loe (@JimLoe) January 4, 2019 Why not draw attention to yourself with...

*  Chanel, Inc. v. Wgaca,  2018 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 158077 (SDNY Sept. 14, 2018): Chanel’s amended complaint plausibly alleges that WGACA’s use of the hashtag #WGACACHANEL infringes Chanel’s trademarks. It alleges that WGACA conjoined its acronym with the Chanel trademark to create the impression that WGACA is affiliated with Chanel or is an authorized Chanel retailer…. WGACA’s Chanelbranded items would be readily identifiable as Chanel without the #WGACACHANEL hashtag and the multiple uses of Cha...

"Efficient Institutions and Effective Deterrence: On Timing and Uncertainty of Punishment"

The title of this post is the title of this paper recently posted to SSRN authored by Johannes Buckenmaier, Eugen Dimant, Ann-Christin Posten and Ulrich Schmidt.

Isn't it to Trump's credit that only 3 have died in the National Parks during the shutdown?

The anti-Trumpism of The Washington Post is on display in "Three dead in national parks as shutdown wears on":Three days after most of the federal workforce was furloughed on Dec. 21, a 14-year-old girl fell 700 feet to her death at the Horseshoe Bend Overlook, part of the Glen Canyon Recreation Area in Arizona. The following day, Christmas, a man died at Yosemite National Park in California after suffering a head injury in a fall. On Dec. 27, a woman was killed by a falling tree at Great Smoky ...

I didn't do it, but anyway, it's no big deal and Obama did it too.

Many people currently a part of my opposition, including President Obama & the Dems, have had campaign violations, in some cases for very large sums of money. These are civil cases. They paid a fine & settled. While no big deal, I did not commit a campaign violation!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 5, 2019 [Author: [email protected] (Ann Althouse)]

I lost 13 stone – now I know the truth about obesity

For years, I swallowed all the theories about fat, believing I could be obese and fit. Here are five dangerous myths, debunkedAs far back as I can remember, I was overweight. My parents were morbidly obese, just like three of my grandparents (my maternal grandmother was “only” obese – in other words, just fat). In my teenage years, I tried every diet going, and would sometimes lose weight, only to put it all on again. Eventually I concluded that so-called “normal” weight just wasn’t realistic fo...

Legal Tech in the Heartland, Episode 2: John Walker, Walker Law PC, Houston, Texas
