What a hashtag coming yesterday from law blog pioneer, legal tech veteran and now law professor, Dennis Kennedy. Kennedy used the hashtag in a blog post as his solution to a growing problem legal professionals face when writing for third party publishers – #blogfirst. I’ve been rethinking my approach to publishing articles in publications. To my horror, I’ve seen links to hundreds of my old articles take people to “file not found” or other 404 pages. Other articles are now behind subscrip...

Business Finance: Mixed Personal/Business Assests in LLC Bank Account

My question involves business law in the state of: Arizona I've continuously (and stupidly) have mixed personal/business funds in my LLC bank account over the past year and i'm sure it would be more than enough to "Pierce the corporate veil" in the event I was sued.

Court will review census citizenship dispute this term

The Supreme Court’s 2018-2019 term will end with a bang. In a brief order issued after the justices’ private conference, the court announced this afternoon that it will review a challenge to the Trump administration’s decision to add a question about citizenship to the 2020 census. The court will take up the case and hear oral argument in the dispute – without following the normal procedure and waiting for a federal appeals court to weigh in first – in late April. The dispute centers on the Marc...

Here's How Your Birthday Color Can Bring Harmony Into Your Home

Decorating our spaces with intention is a task that's easier dreamt about than done — at the end of the day we lack energy, direction, and inspiration for total home makeovers. But what if elevating our apartments was as easy as incorporating a single color? According to astrologer and metaphysician, Michele Bernhardt, it is. We chatted with the author of Colorstrology and mind behind its vibrant Pantone birthday calendar about just how we can (and should) use color to bring energy into our hom...

"When I came into office, I met right there in the Oval Office with President Obama. And I sat in those beautiful chairs."

Said Trump — WaPo transcript — who seemed to be flying high at the end of his Q&A session after his speech today. And we talked. It was supposed to be 15 minutes.

But I believe he would have gone to war with North Korea. I think he was ready to go to war. In fact, he told me he was so close to starting a big war with North Korea....
