How the fight over the full Mueller report could lead to impeachment

Attorney General Barr has resisted sharing the unredacted Mueller report with Congress on two bases: grand jury secrecy (based in part on avoiding unfairness to those not indicted but possibly mentioned in the Report) and the risk of identifying national intelligence sources. The latter category is not in serious dispute. Although the most zealous of the pro-impeachment congressmembers demand even information that might identify a CIA mole inside the Kremlin, no one else is pushing for that. Reg...

Class-C arrests by Austin PD plummet after policy restrictions implemented

As bills are considered at the Texas Legislature to restrict Class-C misdemeanor arrests, Austin PD revealed that new policies limiting such warrantless detentions have radically reduced their number. "In the first three months of the year," the Statesman reported, there was a 57% decline over 2018 arrest numbers."The new changes eliminated the majority of allowable reasons officers could make an arrest for Class-C misdemeanor violations, for which the maximum punishment is only a fine, not jail...

NASA's administrator lavishly praised an influential Evangelical ministry during its $10,000-a-table fundraiser. Some experts say his speech violated the Constitution.

NASA administrator Jim Bridenstine gave a speech in February at a Christian ministry's fundraising dinner, which advertised $10,000-a-table sponsorships. NASA said Bridenstine was approved to attend the event in his official capacity. Bridenstine expressed his support for the ministry and its mission, saying he likes the idea of "institutional" but not "influential" separation of church and state. Some government-ethics experts said Bridenstine's speech ran afoul of the First Amendment of the ...

Ohio Legislators Propose Two Different Sports Betting Bills

Ohio lawmakers have been considering legalizing sports betting ever since the US Supreme Court ruled last year that states are allowed to do that. But there are two very different ideas on how to make that happen. The bipartisan bill from Reps. Dave Greenspan and Brigid Kelly would have sports betting in casinos, racinos and fraternal and veterans’ organizations at first. But because it would be regulated by the Ohio Lottery , sports gambling could be expanded to bars, stores and other lottery v...

How William Hill is hoping to score in US sports betting market

Think of William Hill and you probably think of the bookmaker's traditional high street betting shops or, perhaps, the Sports Book of the Year award it set up 30 years ago and has sponsored ever since.

Auto Insurance with a DUI

When it comes auto insurance, the best advice on a DUI is to not get one. I’m not being glib either. A DUI is the source of one of the biggest increases in car insurance premiums you can have. But if you do have a DUI, the next best advice is to minimize the damage. That’s what we’re going to discuss in this article. What Constitutes a DUI? Each state has its own specific laws regarding DUI, which is referred to as driving while intoxicated, or DWI. In some states, it’s the process of operatin...

Tampering with the Supreme Court for political gain wrong for America

President Franklin Roosevelt’s re-election in 1936 was the largest electoral college victory since George Washington’s uncontested elections. His popular vote triumph was 60.8 percent to 36.5 percent. FDR saw the vote as an endorsement of his New Deal approach to the Great Depression. Arraigned against him was the U.S. Supreme Court, which the year before had struck down the heart of the New Deal: the National Industrial Recovery Act. With a tremendous political wind at his back, and the target ...

Class C misdemeanor arrests and incarceration in Texas, by the numbers

Beginning with the consideration of HB 482 (Thompson) in the House Homeland Security and Public Safety Committee on Wednesday, the Texas Legislature will spend quite a bit of time over the coming weeks considering the consequences of arrest and incarceration for Class C misdemeanors, which in Texas are minor offenses carrying a maximum punishment of a $500 fine and no jail time.There are two ways people end up incarcerated over Class C misdemeanors.

Another useful reminder of the need for more criminal justice diversity on the federal bench

Long-time readers know I have been talking a long time about the prosecutorial tilt that impacts who gets nominated and confirmed for seats on the US Supreme Court and lower federal courts.  Encouragingly, the need for more balance in the courts is getting more attention as criminal justice reform continues to garner attention (especially among would-be Democratic Prez candidates).   Consider, for example, this piece on this topic at Slate by Kyle Barry under the headline "Democratic Presidentia...

Why Police Should Be Required to Get a Warrant to Use Cell-Site-Simulators (aka, "stingrays")

Legislation heard this week in the Texas House Criminal Jurisprudence Committee, HB 352 (Blanco) would require warrants for Texas law enforcement to use so-called “stingrays” or “cell-site simulators” to track people's cell phones, and provide more transparency surrounding use of these devices.So-called “Stingrays” or cell-site simulators are examples of relatively new surveillance techniques hovering at the bleeding edge of both cell-phone technology and Fourth Amendment jurisprudence.

Rounding-up some news and commentary as SCOTUS hears argument on latest round of capital insanity

Trump: Expanding US Supreme Court will 'never happen'

US President Donald Trump on Tuesday slapped down ambitious proposals being circulated by some Democratic White House candidates to expand the number of justices on the US Supreme Court, dismissing it as election sour grapes. Trump said Democrats were seeking to rebalance the nine-member court or draw it once again to a more liberal lean after the high court shifted to the right with the president managing to place two of his nominees -- Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh -- on the bench. "So if...
