The Legislature has gone into summer recess leaving a lot of unfinished business. When they return, among the most controversial proposals left unresolved are bills addressing the state housing crisis. While no one disputes the need for more housing,,, the broader policy issue is whether state micromanaging of local land use decisions is in the public interest.

An adverse jury verdict is just a number on a piece of paper

Late last week, a federal jury tagged Walmart with a verdict totaling more than $125 million in a disability discrimination lawsuit the EEOC brought on behalf of an employee with Down syndrome.

After Walmart altered her shift hours by 60 to 90 minutes, she had requested an accommodation back to...

Justice Thomas rightly questions federal marijuana authority

Last week, the U.S. Supreme Court decided not to hear an appeal from the owners of a Colorado marijuana business, not because they didn’t have a good case, but rather, because they did. We know this because Justice Clarence Thomas chose to write a statement about the court’s denial of the petition for a writ of certiorari. “A prohibition on intrastate use or cultivation of marijuana may no longer be necessary or proper,” he concluded. The owners of Standing Akimbo Medical Dispensary were challen...
