1) The difference between a trial and an appeal.
2) Don't steal from your clients. In particular don't steal from cripples. Yeesh.
3) Another "foolproof" method to spot liars. Here's betting this one won't catch the same people that the modern lie detectors don't and that it will register false positives just as much on anxious people. Via CrimProf
4) People are fighting efforts to bring back mandatory sentencing.
5) Does putting more people in jail stop crime? Probably not. Does keeping them there longer? Probably yes. Will we all go broke trying to do this? Depends on if we adopt the federal government's definition of "broke."
6) Giving her the finger.
7) Somebody doesn't like defence solicitors.
8) Wow. Every single one of my grand larceny cases can be made federal. That's insane.
9) Okay. Now I'm nervous about my jury trial on Monday.
10) The Catch-22, of course, is: How do you prove the erased tape was exculpatory if it has been erased?
11) Judges upset that the government is trying to take too much power away from them. And no, it's not about Congress.
12) A discussion of the Florida "shoot if he looks at you cross-eyed" law.
13) Don't take Meth into the courthouse (or the jail - my clients keep trying to sneak it into the jail).
14) Was Martha in contempt? In any court wherein I practice she would be so found. Home incarceration is supposed to be a burden.
15) Show of hands. Who out there has had this happen to one of his clients? I can think of at least two off the top off my head.
16) Deer farms? Illegal hunts? If it's a farm and you raise them to be killed does it matter how it's done? I mean, of course, unless they have to be kosher or halal.
17) Curses, yet again I am foiled in my attempt to be named among the top blawgs.
18) If you can't keep your pistol in your holster, at least keep your pants up.
19) Duckman v. Virginia Trooper.
