What do you think about allowing for cell phone searches at accident sites to determine whether the phone was the cause for the accident?  Reviewing phone records is already common, but is this going too far?  Does this violate the 4th amendment or is it a smart way to determine fault?

Unfortunately, instead of being placed into a loving home, many of these girls face the possibility of state-level prosecution for prostitution and drug possession.  Many traffickers and abusers use the threat of criminal prosecution to keep these children from running away.

As a lawyer, theology teacher and one well acquainted with the judge who wrote this opinion, I'm curious as to what people think about this case.  How do you feel about a town counsel instituting a prayer policy that may favor one particular religion?  This case is scheduled to be heard in the next Supreme Court term.

 I think people with disabilities, need to have a code on their state id card, with info about what their disability is, which police officers would be trained to notice, when people show their id.  This is because law enforcement often does not believe statements by suspects, regarding nature of their disabilities.

According to a new study, most people think that lawyers contribute little-to-nothing to society.  From Shakespeare to Lincoln to The Simpsons, lawyer jokes and a general dislike of lawyers has been a part of popular culture for hundreds of years.  So, what can we do to have a good reputation in a world that hates lawyers? Perhaps we should heed the classic advise from some of the world's greatest thinkers.

Congress is discussing a federal law that would govern when companies are required to disclose breaches of consumer data. Some companies are lobbying for a law that would allow them to remain silent unless an internal investigation revealed a clear risk of harm.  

UConn Law School Professor David Thaw told Congress last week that that will reward companies for bad investigations and erode consumer protection.  Thaw also noted that more than data breach notification legislation is needed.
