iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - On May 15, the Federalist Society held a teleforum on the question of whether businesses and other entities shuttered by coronavirus shutdown orders are entitled to compensation under the Takings Clause of the Fifth Amendment. I debated Prof. F.E. (Enrique) Guerra-Pujol of the University of Central Florida College of Business. Prominent takings lawyer Robert Thomas moderated. Audio of the event is now available here. In my view, most such shutdowns do not. [more...]

California Congressman Ro Khanna Calls for “Fairness Doctrine for the Internet”

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - Silicon Valley congressman weighs in on Silicon Valley CEO: "The decisions of speech on the internet should not be left to billionaire tech leaders, no matter what their intentions," Silicon Valley Rep. Ro Khanna said Monday, referring to Zuckerberg's decision to leave Trump's inflammatory social media posts alone. "We need a fairness doctrine for the internet in the 21st century. The FCC should make sure that aggrieved parties have the right to reply and that. [more...]

“When There’s an Unarmed Person Coming at Them with a Knife or Something, You Shoot Them in the Leg”

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - "Instead of standing there and teaching a cop, when there's an unarmed person coming at them with a knife or something, you shoot them in the leg instead of in the heart is a very different thing. There's a lot of different things that could change," Biden said in a meeting with community leaders at Bethel AME Church in Wilmington, Del. I don't fault Biden much for the "unarmed person.

Does Global Trade Policy Discriminate Against Low-Carbon Industries?

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - Some environmentalists would like to use trade policy to discourage environmentally harmful production, such as by imposing tariffs based upon the carbon intensity of goods. The assumption seems to be that existing trade rules are environmentally "neutral." But what if that assumption is wrong? A new study by economist Joseph Shapiro of the University of California at Berkeley, "The Environmental Bias of Trade Policy," suggests that existing trade policy is actually biased. [more...]

Some Lessons from a Washington Post Graphic on Police Shootings

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - It's no secret to readers of the Volokh Conspiracy, nor to readers of our host site, that the American criminal justice is in dire need of reform. Police are generally unaccountable for misbehavior (which, among other things allows a small number of sociopaths to consistently engage in excessive force), militarization of local police forces creates opportunities for excessive use of force, no-knock raids create all sorts of problems leading.

Another Way to Think About South Bay: Why Allow Protest, But Not Prayer?

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - Earlier today, I blogged about Corona-cases that were mooted while Supreme Court review was pending. Towards the end of the post, I offered another way to think about South Bay United Pentecostal Church. (I wrote about that case here and here). First, the Court approached that case with the wrong frame. It is a mistake to simply assess how "comparable" businesses are treated. This method reminds me of a routine feature of employment law. For example,. [more...]

Who will write the remaining major Supreme Court decisions?

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - The Supreme Court generally gives each Justice roughly the same number of majority opinions. For example, in a given sitting (roughly a month), the Court may hear nine cases. Each Justice would be assigned one majority opinion. If there are more than nine cases in a sitting, invariably some Justices will get multiple assignments. This practice allows us to use the process of elimination to guess who will write the majority opinion. [more...]

What Happened to the Public Health Emergency?

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - Remember when all the politicians and talking heads were telling us we had to listen to the allegedly unanimous opinion of public health experts that nothing, literally NOTHING, was more important that social distancing to prevent the spread of Coronavirus? And that anyone who raised objections to the scope or persistence of lockdowns was a misanthropic, anti-science troglodyte. That was yesterday. Today, protesting against racism is more important. I agree. [more...]

With Nothing Better To Do, Alabama AG Sues City For Removing Confederate Statue

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - While most attorneys general occupy their days investigating consumer fraud or bringing charges against violent cops, in Alabama those are considered features rather than bugs, so the AG’s office occupies its time squandering public tax dollars trying to ban abortion and trying to strip citizens of health insurance. It’s less a public watchdog than an expensive press release mill for conservative virtue signaling, but wouldn’t you rather pay for FedSoc fan fiction than drinkable water? But while. [more...]

Yesterday, the Commission on Judicial Performance ordered him removed from office.

In Philadelphia, city officials said they were working with police and other emergency personnel to prevent violence from disrupting voting. The city planned. [more...]

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - Top Facebook executives, including Mark Zuckerberg, spoke with civil rights leaders last night as the company confronts a wave of backlash over its decision not to moderate President Trump’s controversial posts.  But the roughly hour-long call, intended to show the company takes concerns from the black community seriously, only further inflamed tensions. Color of Change President Rashad Robinson, NAACP Legal Defense Fund president Sherrilyn Ifil and The Leadership Conference on Civil.

“Republicans Fear Trump’s Criticism of Mail-In Ballots Will Hurt Them”

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - President Trump has relentlessly attacked mail voting, calling it a free-for-all for cheating and a Democratic scheme to rig elections. None of the charges are true. But as eight states and the District of Columbia vote on Tuesday in the biggest Election Day since the coronavirus forced a pause in the primary calendar, it is clear that Mr. Trump’s message has sunk in deeply with Republicans, who have shunned mail ballots. Republican officials and. [more...]

“Election officials contradict Barr’s assertion that counterfeit mail ballots produced by a foreign country are a ‘real’ worry”

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - Current and former election administrators said it would be virtually impossible for a foreign country to produce and mail in phony absentee ballots without detection, an issue Attorney General William P. Barr raised as a serious possibility in an interview published Monday. Barr told the New York Times Magazine that a foreign operation to mail in fake ballots was “one of the issues that I’m real worried about.” “We’ve been talking about. [more...]

“As Trump attacks voting by mail, GOP builds 2020 strategy around limiting its expansion”

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - President Trump’s persistent attacks on mail-in voting have fueled an unprecedented effort by conservatives to limit expansion of the practice before the November election, with tens of millions of dollars planned for lawsuits and advertising aimed at restricting who receives ballots and who remains on the voter rolls. The strategy, embraced by Trump’s reelection campaign, the Republican National Committee and an array of independent conservative groups, reflects the recognition by. [more...]

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday declined to take up a case that challenged Montana’s law on disclosing the spending for political ads within 60 days of an election. In August 2019, the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Montana’s law that nonprofit groups running ads that mention candidates, political parties or ballot issues in the 60-day window before an election have to report any spending of $250 or more and say who.

Charlie Brown, Lucy, And That Football

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - I suspect I’m dating myself, but does anyone else remember the Peanuts cartoons?  Specifically, that endlessly repeated gag (more like heart-wrenching tragedy) of Lucy offering to hold the football for poor, hapless Charlie Brown so he can kick it?  Of course, she winds up pulling it away just in time for him to miss the kick and fly through the air screaming, then land in a heap, bruised and miserable,.

Federal Judge Dissents From… Her Own Opinion

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - Judge Edith Jones of the Fifth Circuit appears to be having a bit of an identity crisis. In Stratta & Fazzino v. Roe et al., Judge Jones wrote for the majority in holding that the district court erred in dismissing the claims of landowners against a government body for allegedly stealing groundwater. One claim that the Judge Jones-authored opinion blessed as correctly dismissed was a First Amendment claim raised by one of. [more...]

Get Ready For THOUSANDS Of Biglaw Layoffs Due To COVID-19

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - While salary cuts shore up firms financially, they don’t address the fundamental problem: more lawyers than can be kept busy enough to grow professionally at the required pace. Thus, we should expect layoffs as people return to their offices. We should also anticipate churning of the equity partner ranks and another round of widening of equity partner comp ranges. … [A]s an order of magnitude, if we repeated the same. [more...]

Maybe . . . DON’T.

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - The California Republican Party and its national GOP counterparts have sued to stymie Newsom, arguing he had exceeded his statutory authority. Former Rep. Darrell Issa, who is running to return to Congress, has also challenged Newsom’s order.

Deutsche Bank Has Regrets

iCrowdNewswire - Jun 3, 2020 - Deutsche Bank knows what a troubled debtor looks like, and has more than its fair share of experience with loans that are never going to be repaid. And, well, it’s got a bad feeling about that $760 million bankruptcy exit loan it participated in way back in, uh, three weeks ago. The department-store chain reported that it overvalued the inventory backing the asset-based loan by $159 million, Deutsche said in a Friday court filing. The overvaluation means. [more...]
