The Overly Complicated Law of Getting Your Money Back From the Government

I invited Prof. Burbank to provide a discussion of this recent appellate decision reversing a judgment from the Court of Federal Claims.  Burbank has previously written about confusing elements of the Tucker Act and the scope of claims for “illegal exaction.” In typical law professor style, she writes here that the court came to the “right conclusion but for the wrong reason.”   – Dennis.

Never-Trump GOPers Must Support Democracy Reform To Cleanse Party When He’s Gone

This article is part of TPM Cafe, TPM’s home for opinion and news analysis.  While it is refreshing to see a bevy of conservative intellectuals and former Republicans take on Donald Trump with an eye toward electing Joe Biden as president, this mobilization seems bereft of a strategic plan for re-establishing a center-right party that is not rooted in white grievance politics and an insatiable desire to own the libs. Fair enough; there is a serious enough task at hand. But plan beats no plan, a...

Microsoft could be 'a great steward' of TikTok's US assets if reported sale talks succeed, says Josh Elman, an investor in the app's predecessor Musical.ly

VC Josh Elman, an early investor in TikTok predecessor Musical.ly, said he thinks Microsoft could be a good fit for TikTok if a reported purchase deal for its US operations goes through. President Trump has been pressing for a sale to an American company, and issued an executive order last week that would later ban TikTok from continuing US operations itself. But with parent company ByteDance's tech spread across multiple products, splitting up the app's operations could be difficult.  In his ...

Trump administration announces major midband spectrum auction for 5G

5G is increasingly coming into focus as a set of technologies that has the potential to dramatically expand the quality, bandwidth, and range of wireless connectivity. One of the major blocks to actually rolling out these technologies though is simply spectrum: there just isn’t enough of it available for private use. 5G needs spectrum at very low frequencies to penetrate buildings and increase range, and it also needs high frequencies to support the huge bandwidth that future applications will r...
