Herrera v. Wyoming: A Cautionary Encounter with Careless Repudiation

Daniel B. Rice and Jack Boeglin The law of repudiating precedent is hopelessly muddled.  The Supreme Court often simply overrules decisions whose reasoning it chooses to disavow.  But it sometimes stops just short of doing so—repudiating the principle underlying a case without explicitly overruling the case itself.  When those enfeebled decisions are invoked in later litigation, how should the Court understand their residual force?  Have they been “effectively” overruled, overruled sub silent...

Free File 2019 is open with taxpayer protection upgrades

Longest U.S. federal government shutdown in history be damned! That's apparently the Internal Revenue Service's motto this year. It announced last week that it will start working on our 2018 tax returns — and issue any related refunds — this filing season, which is set to start on Monday, Jan. 28, even if it's technically still operating in modified shutdown mode. The IRS underscored that commitment on Friday, Jan. 11, when it announced that taxpayers who qualify to use Free File can now access...

Wyatt Earp was a gunfighter, gambler and gung-ho for California

Wyatt Earp died in Los Angeles 90 years ago Jan. 13, 1929. He is famous for his part in the O.K. Corral gunfight in Tombstone, Arizona, but lived most of his life and is buried in California. It wasn’t until after his death that Wyatt Earp was glorified as a gunfighting lawman.

Business Disputes: Paid on Accident

My question involves business law in the state of Wyoming. I received an additional months paycheck after I had left the company. I did not realize it until my former boss (owner of the company) text messaged me months later and requested I write a check back to him within two weeks. Due to my boss's sketchy financial history (manipulating the system by charging for services that are no given.) I did not send a check. I assumed I would hear from the companies outsourced accountant; which was...

Argument analysis: Justices grapple with preclusion and “occupation” in Crow Tribe treaty case

On Tuesday, the Supreme Court heard argument in its latest foray into Indian treaty interpretation, Herrera v. Wyoming. The case concerns the persistence of the Crow Tribe’s hunting right in the 1868 Second Treaty of Fort Laramie. In an occasionally meandering argument, the Supreme Court repeatedly circled the three issues at the core of the case: issue preclusion, the implications of the court’s holding in its 1999 decision in Minnesota v. Mille Lacs Band of Chippewa Indians, and the meaning of...

Blue states rank better than red ones: How’d your state fare in 14 national rankings?

Blue states were better than red states in 2018. That’s what my trusty spreadsheet tells me when I compiled a selection of state-by-state rankings that serve our national thirst to debate who’s No. 1 and who’s dead last. My study used 14 state-by-state rankings published last year on various quality-of-life subjects.  My “red” states were those who voted for President Donald Trump in the 2016 election; “blue” states were the ones that didn’t go for Trump. The blue states scored better two ways —...

Phone service for emergencies, ham radio?

I am about to accept a job in a national park in Wyoming. But the negative is the possibility that the rv site I will have will have no phone service. My husband, who is disabled, is traveling with me. Would a ham radio or something similar work for us for emergencies. He needs to be able to contact 911 if he gets sick. Neither one of us have used a Ham radio or are licensed. We would be close by a ranger station. Thanks everyone

Gun Rights Battle Starts Tomorrow (Tuesday 1/7/2019) in Cheyenne Wyoming – -(AmmoLand.com)- It all starts tomorrow! The 2019 legislative session starts tomorrow, and our fight to rid Wyoming of deadly ‘Gun Free Zones’ will go into high gear.
