GOP rising star John James faces trouble at top of ticket

Still more of the ever-growing number of COVID-influenced federal sentence reductions using § 3582(c)(1)(A)

In recent posts (examples here and here and here and here and here and more linked below), I have highlighted more than four dozen rulings involving COVID-influenced grants of sentence reductions using § 3582(c)(1)(A) that I have found via Westlaw.  (And, as I keep mentioning, these Westlaw listings likely do not represent all sentence reductions being granted these days).  before the start of a new work week, I figured I would do yet another round-up of new grants of sentence reductions that em...

The Grace to Show Respect

IF WE are to be successful, we need to collaborate. We don’t have the whole story. Collaboration is founded on a bedrock of respect. John Baldoni writes in Grace: A Leader’s Guide to A Better Us, “Our culture has become more coarsened. The rancor in our political system, fueled as it is by people who do not want to listen to one another, paralyzes so much of our public discourse.” It is difficult to find a voice today that is not hindered by personal biases, political affiliations, pandering, s...

Opinion analysis: Sharply divided bench rejects Georgia’s copyright in annotations of Georgia statutes

The decision this morning in Georgia v Public.Resource.Org resolves a technical question of copyright law, the extent to which governmental authorities can copyright (and profit from) the materials that they create. The specific question here is the copyrightability of annotations that summarize, but are not part of, the state’s body of enforceable statutes. The opinion of Chief Justice John Roberts for a 5-4 majority holds that the “government edicts” doctrine, long recognized as preventing cop...

That’s when the stoplight turned green. Moves that were likely left on hol...
