People are criticizing Gladys Knight for accepting the invitation to sing the National Anthem at the Super Bowl.

CNN reports.My reaction is, in this order: 1. Don't criticize Gladys Knight, 2. Don't make singing the National Anthem into a bad thing, 3. The question of protesting the National Anthem is separate, and if you want to defend the players who have been protesting, you're making a big leap if you go from arguing that the protest is respectful, respectable, and permissible to saying that protest is required and anyone not protesting is to be disrespected, 4. Those who are making that big leap are c...

Does Wisconsin law require a "wedding barn" to have a license if it serves liquor?

The Cap Times reports on a new lawsuit brought by The Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty, which we're told in the first line of the article is a conservative legal group. That's convenient for most Cap Times readers — they can know right off the bat that they want those wedding barns to get liquor licenses. Me, I'm still wondering, what are wedding barns?The lawsuit, filed in Dunn County Circuit Court, is the latest development in a longstanding dispute between conservative advocacy groups,...

Indiana Police Officer Shot By Partner As The Clueless Cops Force Her To Walk To Get Help

Via WiscoDave, this sad tale. An Indiana police officer is in critical but stable condition after she was accidentally shot by her partner while on duty. The Lafayette Police Department released body camera footage showing Officer Lane Butler, her partner Aaron Wright and a third officer searching a home for a fugitive on January 8.

Google Photos Defeats Privacy Lawsuit Over Face Scans–Rivera v. Google

This case provides a glimpse into the legacy of the Supreme Court’s Spokeo decision on the injury-in-fact requirements for Article III standing in federal court. When it was issued, I called Spokeo a “jurisprudential clusterfuck.” Indeed, the subsequent caselaw has been messy–including this case! Google Photos automatically creates “face templates” from uploaded photos and then lets the uploading user sort the photos by face. The court assumes, without deciding, that the face templates and asso...

14 Major Travel Scams to Avoid

Updated: 12/28/2018 | December 28th, 2018 Travel scams are real. When I started traveling, I fell for them too. On my first big non-tour trip, I got scammed twice on the same day. My friend Scott and I had just arrived in Thailand. We were in Bangkok trying to find a boat cruise to take us up and down the Chao Phraya River. A taxi driver suggested this one company; we went there, and found out that an hour-long tour was only $30 USD. Not even thinking about whether that was a deal or not, we ...

Use the Power of Contrasts to Drive Yourself Forward

The first principle is that you must not fool yourself, and you are the easiest person to fool. Richard P. Feynman, Nobel-Prize Winning Physicist When my father was growing up, his father used to spend occasional Sunday afternoons driving him through expensive neighborhoods around Detroit and showing him the expensive houses in these neighborhoods. My grandfather was a newspaper man and never made a lot of money. When I was growing up, my father also didn’t make a lot of money and did the same t...

Homeschooling Fight In Massachusetts

Zerohedge: A school system in Massachusetts is proving to be malicious, incompetent, or maybe both. Of course, we suspected that already. But the latest example comes from a lawsuit from a woman who pulled her 8-year-old son from Worcester Public Schools to homeschool him last January. Josilyn Goodall is suing the Worcester School Committee, Superintendent Maureen Binienda, and the state Department of Children and Families after police entered her home, handcuffed her, and arrested her over what...

A lesson in how to keep activists from winning: Don't let acceding to their demands be the path of least resistance.

There are 2 murals at the Robert F.

Be Careful with Continuous Breach and Statute of Limitations

If you are a construction attorney like me (or anyone that takes cases to court), you deal with statutes of limitation on a daily basis.  These statutes seem pretty simple.  A party has “X” amount of time in which to file its lawsuit after accural of the cause of action.  In a breach of contract suit, the accrual is the date of breach.  Easy, right?  Wrong, at least in some circumstances. Take for example, the case of out of the 4th Circuit Court of Appeals.  In this unpublished opinion the ...

The faulty and foul thinking continuing to thwart a vote on the FIRST STEP Act

A new week bring a new round of stories about the status of the debate over the FIRST STEP Act.  For example, this morning's Politico piece, headlined "Trump lays off McConnell as criminal justice reform stalls: Advocates fear the president isn’t fully invested in the fight for the bill," is focused on whether Prez Trump should be trying to do more to get the legislation through Congress.  Given that Prez Trump does not work in Congress, I would rather these days to see stories about whether he ...

UPDATE: Does an employer have a duty to protect the personal information of its employees?

In July, I asked whether an employer owes its employees a legal duty to protect their personal information. I discussed cases that answered that question in both the affirmative and the negative. I also suggested that regardless of whether employers have a legal duty to protect the personal information and data of your employees, they still have a significant financial and reputational incentive to take reasonable steps to maintain the privacy and security of all of their information. The domi...
