Stealing money that was supposed to go to kids? Hope they rot in the pen a little longer thanks to that stunt.

Speaking of stealing money. https://www.stripes.com/veterans/2024-06-03/veterans-affairs-senior-managers-bonuses-14069378.html

I havenít had a primary care doctor since January because my old one left for a much higher paying and less stressful job.

SCoFL has decided that the governor can remove elected officials and appoint a replacement without judicial review so long as he plausibly allege any job deficiency.

e: In the present case, he indefinitely suspended a democratic party state attorney who was not slamming people for minor drug offenses.

no way this will end poorly.

It'll end the moment someone with a D next to their name is elected governor.

Can we shift the election talk to another thread? Itís tiring to read and derails this thread for pages.

Am I reading this correctly that those people have to prove that they didn't leak the meeting?

Correct. Another lawyer friend thinks itís a way for the judge to get out of sending the lawyer to jail for contempt because heíll know who told defense attorneys about his unethical ex parte in chambers hearing.

Is tomorrow the day for the Trump immunity decision or are they going to just conveniently punt that one to the end of time?

Could be! We donít know. They have something like 26 opinions left to issue and usually finish by the end of June.

Here's some shocking news - SCOTUS overturned the fifth and upheld the ban on firearms possessions when someone has a domestic violence restraining order against them.

It's 50%, with the implied admission that it's not reeeeeeally 50%.

Nope. Just like 0.9 repeating is equal to one, 49.9 repeating is fifty. There is no difference. They are strictly equal.

Note that the guy that paid the mayor $13k explicitly said that it was done as a kickback for the mayor rigging the bidding process in his favor. Since the payment was after the fact, though, it's a gratuity and a-ok. If the $13k had been paid before the bid rigging, it would have been an unlawful bribe.

The purdue pharma case is an unambiguous win for anyone harmed by a big corporation. The texas-two step bankruptcy procedure has always been bullshit, and I'm glad it got tossed.

Everything else today was awful including the EMTALA case because they're just delaying the outcome there where they rule in Idaho's favor in two years.

Since when does either party ditch its own incumbent?

Not going to happen.

Also SCOTUS just gave the green light for states/cities to ban homeless people.

And there goes Chevron, just because they could do it and 2016 happened. 6-2 with Jackson recused, so it was extra super toast.

6-3 for one case and 6-2 for the others. It was a consolidated set of cases. Not that it matters. This combined with the SEC ruling yesterday means the administrative state is dead and the courts decide everything from now on. John Roberts runs the country.

Whole lot of Jan. 6th convictions just got tossed.

e: at least 20 have also been convicted under this same statute. it isn't the majority of cases, though.
