Traffic Accidents: Medical Bill Reimbursment

My question involves an injury that occurred in the state of: Arizona Hopefully this is the correct forum for my question. My wife and I were involved in a rear ended collision.

So, I'm trying to figure out what is the insurance companies obligation is to reimburse for our medical expenses. Below is an example of one small Docto...

Why Wouldn’t State Bar Association Sites Include Member Attorney Blogs?

Reviewing state bar association websites and their online publications, we’re finding that the vast majority do not include a listing of their member attorneys’ law blogs. There are exceptions. I gave a shoutout today to the Arizona Bar Assiciaton and veteran journalist and editor of the Arizona Attorney Magazine, Tim Eigo for their work in creating and running the Arizona Attorney Blog Network.  Fabulous job, @AZStateBar and Tim Eigo/@azatty in your 'Arizona Attorney Blog Network...

Out-of-State Marriage: If I Marry Out of the U.S. a, is It Valid Here in the USA

My question involves marriage law for the state of: Arizona. I'm planning on marrying a girl in another country (Guyana) and going to live over there. (This is a real marriage, and we both love each other). We have decided we will stay over there. Given we ever split up, will my marriage be valid in the US? Will I have to go through the divorce process in the US or only in Guyana? If we divorced, would I have to pay alimony from the US to Guyana?

One new grant and a 9th Circuit rebuke

This morning the Supreme Court issued orders from last week’s conference. The justices added just one new case to their merits docket for next term and issued an unsigned opinion that sent a ruling that was released after the death of one of the judges who participated in the case back to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit. The justices once again did not act on several high-profile cases, including a challenge to an Indiana abortion law and a group of cases asking the justices to wei...

The Gun Controllers Never Sleep: Local, Local, Local

It’s all the rage now, gun control at the state level, when many gun owners have been focused on federal gun laws.  First up, Arizona has already completed a major infringement and has it in its rear view mirror. Nevada’s governor on Friday signed into law a bill expanding background checks to private gun sales and transfers, taking advantage of a Democrat-controlled Legislature to approve the first gun-related bill to cross his desk. Lawmakers say the bill is a fix to a 2016 gun background chec...

Democrats Reject Push To Alert ICE When Illegal Immigrants Fail Firearm Background Checks

Fox News: Democrats this week approved legislation to require background checks for essentially all sales and transfers of firearms — but rejected GOP-led efforts to amend the legislation to alert law enforcement authorities when gun buyers, including illegal immigrants, fail those background checks. The House Judiciary Committee voted in favor of the bill 23-15, in a strict party-line vote, sending it to the House floor. If approved by the full House, the bill would be the most significant gun...

Collection Lawsuits: Can My Personal Creditor Take Money from My LLC

My question involves collection proceedings in the State of: Arizona. I defaulted on a car loan to lower my personal monthly expenditures. I don't have much money to my name at the moment. I have an LLC account with almost no money but in the past I have mixed/personal funds/assets/expenditures in the LLC account. I plan to start making money with this LLC very soon, will my creditors be able to take as much money from my LLC? Or only what I pay myself from the LLC? A lot of the money in th...

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. I've made personal purchases (small to large) and paid personal bills over the course of the past year. How do i go about reversing this? I'm not talking about 1 or 2 transactions, but multiple (100+). Am I better off creating a ...

Symposium: 1 First Street, NE, Punxsutawney, PA

Tyler Green is the solicitor general of Utah. My last contribution to a SCOTUSblog symposium on political gerrymandering used homemade bad theater to depict how a Supreme Court decision setting a standard for political-gerrymandering claims would change life for state legislators and their attorneys. The court dodged this issue in Gill v. Whitford. But the issue has returned this term in Rucho v. Common Cause and Lamone v. Benisek. These events evoke a seasonally appropriate, classic film — Grou...

"I always say this is one city of 400,000 people divided by a fence. But now it’s divided by concertina wire."

"If the president gets his billions of dollars they’re not going to spend it in Nogales. We’ve had a wall. Now we have a wall with concertina wire."Said Arturo Garino, the mayor of Nogales, Arizona, quoted in "Trump’s troop deployment strung ‘lethal’ razor wire on the border. This city has had enough" (WaPo). The city already has an 18-foot fence, but now there are rows of coils of razor wire. The tensions with the town have been exacerbated by the fact that federal authorities have shut out loc...

Symposium: Why not continue the political struggle in partisan-gerrymandering cases?

Derek Muller is an associate professor of law at the Pepperdine University School of Law. “In a democratic society like ours, relief must come through an aroused popular conscience that sears the conscience of the people’s representatives.” So wrote Justice Felix Frankfurter in his dissenting opinion in Baker v. Carr in 1962. It was, of course, a dissent. A majority of the Supreme Court in short order reorganized state legislatures according to its own understanding of fair representation — that...

Texas bail-reform bill to be filed today, and other stories

Here are a few browser-clearing odds and ends to start your week: Bail-reform news and notes Bail reform legislation will be unveiled at the Texas capitol this afternoon. Right now, there is bail litigation only in three Texas counties, but change is needed everywhere. The New York Times analyzed a pretrial-release bail-alternative program in NYC that reduced the population of the jail on Rikers Island by 38 percent. Bail reform helps reduce incarceration not just in jails, but in prisons: A stu...

Custody and Visitation in Different States

My question involves a child custody case from the State of: Arizona. I'm posting for my older brother, who has never used a computer before. All opinions, advise, etc are welcome. He's lived with his much younger girlfriend in AZ for several years. Around two years ago, they broke up and then she announced she was pregnant. The child was born, and since then she refuses to let him take the child anywhere, he can only see her when she says ok, and only at her house. Now she's talking about...

What did Tom Brokaw say that had him apologizing so awkwardly last night on Twitter?

Let's read the original text, the transcript for "Meet the Press." I saw the show at the time, and I wasn't paying that much attention to the words. I was noticing how old and out of it Tom Brokaw looked and sounded. He is speaking on a panel moderated by Chuck Todd, and the subject, at this point, is the government shutdown. Brokaw says:I really didn't think that you could widen the gap between the Beltway and the rest of the country any more, until this happened. And now, it's completely gone....

Border Rancher: “We’ve Found Prayer Rugs Out Here”

Washington Examiner: R anchers and farmers near the U.S.-Mexico border have been finding prayer rugs on their properties in recent months, according to one rancher who asked to remain anonymous for fear of retaliation by cartels who move the individuals. The mats are pieces of carpet that those of the Muslim faith kneel on as they worship. “There’s a lot of people coming in not just from Mexico,” the rancher said. “People, the general public, just don’t get the terrorist threats of that. That’s...

Trump Signals Support For Renewed Assault Weapons Ban

UPDATE: My oldest son points out that this is from a year ago.  I asked him if that is important?  He says, “The Art of War” is necessary for understanding Trump.  It’s difficult to understand whether he’s serious or simply tactically owning or feigning positions.  My response: Then why the red flag laws and bump stock ban? Via Uncle, this isn’t the Onion.  It’s real. President Donald Trump raised the issue, unprompted, during a roughly hour-long televised meeting with Feinstein and other member...

Hundreds More Active-Duty Troops May Be Sent To U.S.-Mexico Border

Military Times: U.S. officials say the Pentagon is finalizing plans that would send hundreds of additional active-duty troops to the U.S.-Mexico border for several more months to support the Department of Homeland Security. The troops would install another 160 miles of concertina wire in Arizona and California. Details are being worked out, but the plan likely would extend the military’s border mission though the end of September. The mission is separate from President Donald Trump’s...

Twitter’s TOS Upheld Despite Unilateral Amendment Clause—Brittain v. Twitter

This is one of the many Trump-associated lawsuits (#MALGA) by so-called conservatives against Internet companies for allegedly squelching their voices. In this case, Craig Brittain, an erstwhile political candidate, had several campaign-related Twitter accounts suspended (including @CraigRBrittain, @AuditTheMedia, @SenatorBrittain, and @Brittain4Senate), allegedly costing him 500,000 followers. He sued for “$1 billion in damages, a declaration that Twitter interfered in the 2018 federal election...

"So you think that he's right that there is at this moment 'a crisis' at the border?" the NYT podcaster Michael Barbaro asks an Arizona sheriff.

Answer: "Michael, yes. And it's not Trump's crisis or this administration's crisis. This has been a crisis the entire 31 years I've been in this valley."That's at about 4 minutes into a 24-minute podcast titled "What a Border Sheriff Thinks About the Wall/A sheriff in Arizona tells us how President Trump's immigration policies have played out in his county, and why his interpretation of the president's message has changed."
