"Do You Live in a Political Bubble?/Enter your address to see the political party of the thousand voters closest to you."

I'm seeing that at the NYT. I didn't need to use the little device they had set up. I know I live in a deep blue cocoon. So let's read some text: “People aren’t choosing to live near neighbors who share their party affiliation” said Alan Abramowitz, a professor of political science at Emory University. “They’re segregating based on lifestyle choices.” The alignment of lifestyle and politics reflects the sorting of Democrats and Republicans by income and education, in addition to race. While memb...

Guest Post by Prof. Holbrook: Whose Law Controls On Sale Prior Art in Foreign Countries?

Guest post by Timothy R. Holbrook, Vice Provost for Faculty Affairs and Asa Griggs Candler Professor of Law, Emory University. The America Invents Act (AIA) effected a sea change in U.S. patent law.  One of the most significant changes was to shift the U.S. from a “first to invent” to a “first inventor to file” system for allocating priority.  This move is reflected in the restructuring of 35 U.S.C. § 102, the provision that defines prior art for assessing whether an invention is novel and non-...

For some time now, many kippah-wearing Jews have adopted the habit of wearing baseball caps when visiting Europe.

"The only way to assuage my feelings of isolation are to absorb all the traditions, classes, make them mine, me theirs. Taken separately, they’re unacceptable and untenable."

Wrote Barack Obama to his girlfriend Alexandra McNear, in one of the excerpts from letters, dated 1982 to 1984, that were released from the collection at Emory University, reported at WaPo.“I must admit large dollops of envy for both groups, my American friends consuming their life in the comfortable mainstream, the foreign friends in the international business world,” Obama writes McNear in one letter. “Caught without a class, a structure, or a tradition to support me, in a sense the choice to ...

"Skewed Justice: Citizens United, Television Advertising, and State Supreme Court Justices’ Decisions in Criminal Cases"

The title of this post is the title of this notable new report authored by Joanna Shepherd and Michael S. Kang which I learned about via an email The American Constitution Society for Law and Policy. Here is the text of that email, which provides a summary of the report's contents: The explosion in spending on television attack advertisements in state supreme court elections accelerated by the Citizens United decision has made courts less likely to rule in favor of defendants in criminal appeal...
