Heisler: Lakers sticking with family, but Kobe Bryant won’t be riding to the rescue

Imagine that. Playoff thrills locally, after all. It was supposed to be over by now. The Lakers left us months ago except for their managerial meltdown. The Clippers were supposed to be finished off by Golden State before anyone noticed they were in the postseason. Instead, in yet another miracle, the Clippers staged the biggest playoff comeback in NBA history, coming from 31 down to win Game 2 in Oakland to make a series of it, after making a season of it when no one expected that. Or, as Coach...

Atlassian stock dropped 8% a day after it reported earnings, but Wall Street has 'no fear' about its future (TEAM)

On Thursday, Atlassian's stock slid 8% after reporting a lower guidance for EPS next quarter than Wall Street expected on Wednesday. Analysts say the drop in stock is due to the impact of Atlassian's price increases and operational costs, such as hiring. Still, analysts are not worried, and they see long-term growth for Atlassian, especially in the IT industry. A day after Atlassian reported earnings , its stock slid 8%, and analysts say it's because Atlassian is still feeling the after-e...

Thursday round-up

Amy Howe reports for this blog, in a post that first appeared at Howe on the Court, that yesterday a Louisiana abortion clinic filed a cert petition asking the Supreme Court to strike down a state law requiring abortion providers to have admitting privileges at nearby hospitals; the justices had put the law on hold in February, in June Medical Services v. Gee. At AP, Mark Sherman reports that “[i]f the justices agree to hear the Louisiana case, as seems likely, it could lead to a decision on the...

Pelicans' Griffin: Gentry staying, and perhaps Davis, too

"We have a very long and successful history together with Klutch Sports," Pelicans executive vice president of basketball operations David Griffin said Wednesday, referring to the agency, led by Rich Paul, that represents Davis.

Argument analysis: “The last Johnson domino to fall”?

Today the Supreme Court considered “the last Johnson domino to fall” (at least potentially). The case, United States v. Davis, involves the possible implications of the Supreme Court’s 2015 decision in Johnson v. United States. Johnson invalidated the residual clause of the Armed Career Criminal Act, a statute that imposes additional punishment on persons with multiple prior convictions for “violent felonies.” Johnson held that the now-defunct residual clause of the ACCA, which defined a viol...

Argument preview: When must criminal intent be developed for an unlawful trespass to become a burglary?

Next Wednesday, April 24, the Supreme Court will consider its third Armed Career Criminal Act case of the term, and the second case involving the elements of burglary. Indeed, Quarles v. United States sounds a bit like the previous burglary case, United States v. Stitt. In Stitt, the court opened October Term 2018 with arguments about whether a “generic burglary” for purposes of the ACCA encompasses vehicles as well as structures; eight weeks later they unanimously ruled that it does. Next week,...

Lawyers, guns and vagueness: how will SCOTUS look to get out of this Johnson mess?

With apologies to the late great Warren Zevon, I cannot help but riff on the all-time greatest song with lawyers as the first word of its title as I think about the Supreme Court's scheduled oral argument this morning in United States v. Davis.  Over at SCOTUSblog, Leah Litman has this extended preview of the argument under the title "Who’s afraid of the categorical approach?," and it provides some context for my pop-culture reference:  Davis is the latest in a string of cases stemming from Joh...

Knott’s adds Ghost Town backstory to Calico River Rapids, tying water ride to two classic attractions

Sasquatch never made an appearance during the 32-year run of BigFoot Rapids at Knott’s Berry Farm, but the legendary folklore beast will take up permanent residence along the rushing river this summer when the renovated water ride becomes Calico River Rapids. “Living in the foothills of the Sequoias as a child, I was both intrigued and terrified by the Sasquatch legend,” said Knott’s vice president of entertainment Ken Parks. “As a kid, I was extremely disappointed that an attraction called BigF...
