* With those big, complex planes grounded, it's time to start gearing up for some lawsuits. [] * Another lawyer involved in the college entrance cheating and bribery scandal. [The Recorder] * Speaking of lawsuits and the admissions scandal... the first class action has been filed. [Courthouse News Service] * Biglaw firm posts record revenue and profits. This story is basically interchangeable with all the other ones from the past couple weeks. Whether or not it's sustainable is another...

* Some think Justice Clarence Thomas may be dropping hints that he's about to retire (e.g., this little First Amendment gem), but those who know him well think he's getting ready for a conservative revolution, and he's got an army of former clerks to back him up. [CNN] * It’s Mueller time! Special counsel Robert Mueller’s sentencing memo for Paul Manafort is 800 pages long and makes the president’s former campaign chairman out to be a "hardened" and "bold" criminal who “repeatedly and brazenly”...

* Trump's talking about pardoning Manafort again. The power of the president to pardon people is clear, but the power of the president to tease a pardon to tamper with a witness is an interesting legal wrinkle. In a way, the pardon power is a Yoda conundrum: "do or do not, there is no publicly Tweeting signals." [NPR] * Speaking of Manafort, his attorneys claim their joint defense agreement covered his tipping off Trump on details of the Mueller investigation. Except... he pleaded guilty. That...

* While you were busy watching Kanye spew drivel in the Oval Office, you may have forgotten that he was there to watch the Music Modernization Act get signed into law to enrich artists. And by "artists" we mean the RIAA. [The Verge] * The public service loan forgiveness program appears to be a total disaster. Glad we got 10 years of free public service out of those chumps who honestly believed the Department of Education would honor its commitments! [ ] * Washington strikes down the death pena...

* For Tex McIver, love means never having to say you're sorry... for shooting your wife in the back. [Daily Report Online] * Vivia Chen wonders if my personal trolling that finally convinced Aaron Schlossberg to release a statement distancing himself from his racist tirade. The answer is yes. [American Lawyer] * Michael Avenatti got some bad news in court the other day when a judge ordered his firm to pay $10 million to a lawyer who used to work with them and alleged the firm shorted him on hi...
