Argument preview: Justices to weigh allegations of racial discrimination in jury selection

During jury selection, some potential jurors can be removed “for cause” – that is, when a judge believes that a juror cannot be impartial in deciding the case. The lawyers trying the case also have a certain number of “peremptory strikes,” which allow them to reject jurors without providing a reason. However, the Supreme Court ruled in Batson v. Kentucky that prosecutors cannot use their peremptory strikes to remove prospective jurors from the jury pool based only on the jurors’ race. Next week ...

The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction

Jacobs, Alan. The Pleasures of Reading in an Age of Distraction. New York: Oxford University Press, 2011. Kindle. Epub. I've been enjoying this book, which is a good thing given the title. The author is a professor of literature at Baylor University, and his thesis is that we should make time to read for 'pleasure, wisdom, or joy.' Versus reading out of a sense of duty, merely because you have to, or an idea that it's good for you, so you should do it even if it hurts (sort of like "Eat yo...

James Harden fined $25,000 for calling referee Scott Foster 'rude and arrogant'

Houston's James Harden knew the fine was coming before he even uttered those words following the Rockets loss to the Lakers Thursday night, in which Foster called two offensive fouls on Harden, one that limited his minutes early and another that set him up to eventually foul him out of the game. For the game, Foster called 12 fouls on the Rockets and six on the Lakers. This season in games Foster has officiated, the Rockets are 1-1.

James Harden says 'it's personal' between him and 'arrogant' ref Scott Foster

It was another eventful game between the Houston Rockets, the Los Angeles Lakers and referee Scott Foster on Thursday night. The Rockets coughed up a 19-point lead and lost to the Lakers, but James Harden and Chris Paul had bigger issues with Foster, who issued them both late-game fouls at critical moments. Harden managed to score 30 points before he fouled out late in the fourth quarter, bringing his streak of games with 30 points or more to 32, but he was livid with Foster's officiating.

Stolen Weapons at Shot Show

Two guys working forklifts at shot show made off with weapons and silencers. They tracked them down when the two went asking about replacement firing pins since the guns had them removed for the show.

Empirical SCOTUS: If Ginsburg leaves, it could be the liberals’ biggest loss yet – A look back at previous justices replaced with more conservative successors

The saga over Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s health seems to ebb and flow from the headlines almost daily. Part of the mystery relates to the amount of information shared with the public. We know that, while treating Ginsburg for rib fractures, doctors found malignant lesions in her lungs that were promptly removed, and that subsequent tests have shown no evidence of any other cancer. Ginsburg has since missed oral arguments and is reportedly recovering at home while keeping current with the cour...
