Parking Violations: Parking "Fines" Imposed by a Private Parking Lot

My question involves a private parking lot “fine” from the state of: Texas My daughter parked in a private lot. Due to rather deceptively placed signs (only at an entrance coming from a dead end street; NOT at entrance from main street), she did not realize she had to pay. She went into a coffee shop for 5 minutes and returned to a “parking notice” with a “fine” of $75. I know that the states of CO and CA have ruled such fines unlawful, determining owners of private lots may only charge the p...

The Denver Post reports Asher Rose will begin his suspension later this month for the Dec. 15, 2017 incident.

"Wish you could have seen the Seattle-area panic shopping yesterday."

"People in the grocery stores were buying everything in the store, because of the prospect of 3 or 4 days of snow. It was hilarious. The Governor declared a state of emergency. When I was at Loring AFB, we called this weather 'springtime.' I remember an April Fool's day in Denver in 1980 or 81 when we had 11 inches of snowfall over night, and by noon it was in the 60's. Imagine 11 inches of slush. Today's weather gave us maybe an inch of snow. God help us."Writes alanc709 in last night's café.Pr...

"'I bear a very heavy burden of responsibility,' [Gary] Hart says, picking at a 'game plate' of elk, buffalo and quail at The Fort restaurant outside of Denver."

"If all that stuff had not happened and if I had been elected, there would have been no gulf war. H.W. wouldn’t have been president. W. wouldn’t have been president. Everything would have changed. I don’t say that to aggrandize myself. It’s just, history changed. And that has haunted me for thirty years. I had only one talent and it wasn’t traditional politics — I could see farther ahead than anybody."Writes Maureen Dowd in "Trump and the Hart-less Presidency/After 30 years, Gary Hart still wond...

"A magazine like that has never put someone like me, an actual fat body, on the cover of a magazine."

"To be on a glossy where you can actually see my body, they haven't altered how I look, makes me really, really proud. It not only meant a lot to me, but the work that I'm doing, which would therefore impact millions of bodies that look like mine.... I'm saying that I love myself and because that happens to be coming from a fat body and a bigger body like mine, people then equate it saying 'I'm promoting obesity and that I'm unhealthy.' Even if it was what I do with my body it's no-one's busines...

Why I’m Signing Off the Podcast I’ve Done for 13 Years

Thirteen years ago this week, in 2005, I sat down in a recording studio in front of a fancy boom microphone, donned a bulky pair of Sony headphones, and waited for the cue. Then I was connected to my new cohost, Newport Beach, Calif., lawyer J. Craig Williams, and recording the first episode of our new podcast. Little did I imagine we’d still be doing it all these years later, making it the longest continually running podcast in law and one of the longest running of any kind. Last night, after 5...

Walkabout In The Weminuche Wilderness

“There are no socialists in the bush” – HPS All of my physical training only barely prepared me for the difficulty of the Weminuche Wilderness (pronounced with the “e” silent).  It’s National Forest land, not National Park.  The Department of Agriculture no longer prints maps of the area, so we relied on NatGeo for the map, and it’s good, but not perfect. We have a lot of ground to cover, including traveling with firearms, the modification I made to one of my guns for the trip, the actors in the...

Denial & Appeals: My Claim and Appeal Were Denied

My question involves labor and employment law for the state of: Colorado. I live in Boulder, CO. I had a job at a law firm in Denver. I was there for four years. The commute was one hour bus ride in each direction. It became too much for me. I was getting sick a lot and taking off too many sick days. I updated my resume online and about a week later I was contacted by a recruiter telling me she had an opening at a firm in Boulder, would I be interested? I said yes. I interviewed and got...

Border Separations Ripple Through Midterm Campaigns

Wrenching scenes of migrant children being separated from their parents at the southern border are roiling campaigns ahead of midterm elections, emboldening Democrats on the often-fraught issue of immigration while forcing an increasing number of Republicans to break from President Donald Trump on a matter that animates the GOP’s most ardent supporters. Kim Schrier, a Democrat running for a House seat outside of Seattle, said Trump is pushing an “absolutely unethical, inhumane” policy. “We are t...

"Tipper Gore's Diary" — a page from the January 1986 issue of Spin magazine.

This is something I hit on googling "joni mitchell lyrics peppermint" as I was blogging a magazine article about the loveliness of the Kate Spade retail store that contained the line "listening to Joni Mitchell and eating peppermints while we waited for customers." I had the feeling there was a Joni Mitchell song with the word "peppermints." I was wrong, but I love what I found looking for something that didn't exist:In 1986, Al Gore was a Senator:Gore was one of the Atari Democrats who were giv...

Opinion analysis: Court rules (narrowly) for baker in same-sex-wedding-cake case [Updated]

[NOTE: This post was updated at 2:17 p.m. after its original publication at 12:04 p.m.] The Supreme Court ruled today in favor of Jack Phillips, a Colorado baker who refused to make a custom cake for a same-sex couple because he believed that doing so would violate his religious beliefs. This was one of the most anticipated decisions of the term, and it was relatively narrow: Although Phillips prevailed today, the opinion by Justice Anthony Kennedy rested largely on the majority’s conclusion tha...

USPTO Oversight Hearing by Senate Judiciary Committee

New USPTO Director Andrei Iancu testified in Congress on April 18 for the first time in his new official capacity — this time before the Senate Judiciary Committee.  The Director must certainly be a visionary — as the chief guide of U.S. intellectual property policy.  At the same time, the Director is head of a multi-billion-dollar agency with 12,000+ employees. Although not speaking for the Senate as a whole, Senator Coons kicked-off the hearing with a statement that AIA Trials: “The current re...

Denver City Council Bans Bump Stocks, Shocked To Find That No One Turns Theirs In

lIJR.com: In January, the Denver City Council approved a ban on the possession of bump stocks and police have told people they need to turn them in. More than two months later, police have not received a single one. Denverite reports police told gun owners that if they “are in possession of a bump stock, and would like to turn-in their bump stock to the Denver Police Department, they can do so at any Denver Police Station.” The council approved the ban by a vote of 11-1. “Congress failed to act....
