If your Monday is a little rough, take some inspiration from this story of a Chicago man who went from wrongfully convicted years ago to lawyer in his new life! Remember: we are capable of amazing things.
Saturday morning, Jarrett Adams received his law degree from Loyola after spending 10 years in prison for a crime he did not commit.

Happy Sunday! Some people are leveraging the controversial RFRA laws to try to remove "In God We Trust" from our currency. Probably not what the framers of the law intended, but here we are.

A fantastic read for a Saturday afternoon, the economics of lethal injection in the US are pretty complex.
Lethal injection was supposed to be a cleaner, more humane version of capital punishement. Instead, this happened.

It's official as of this week - Nebraska will no longer use the death penalty! #DeathPenalty #Nebraska
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Nebraska abolished the death penalty on Wednesday over the governor's objections in a move pushed through the Legislature with unusual backing from conservatives who oppose capital punishment for religious, financial and practical reasons.

The latest #NakedLaw piece from Lisa Bloom shares the frustration with our lack of progress on holding people accountable for sexual abuse.

#TBT  to when we couldn't wait for the next episode of +Breaking Bad because a law school published a whole law review based entirely on legal situations in the show! #BreakingBad  
The legend of Walter White has passed into TV lore, but Heisenberg hasn't left the stage. The chemistry teacher-turned-meth kingpin is the star of the current issue of the New Mexico Law Review, which published a special edition dedicated to "Breaking Bad."

Yours truly, +The Cannabist, and +The Emily Post Institute come together to look at the shifting social norms around marijuana.
The unspoken rules of the "puff, puff, pass" ritual — including all of the steps it takes to toke up — are obvious to those who already partake. But for those just now starting to explore the world of weed, there's a lot to learn. Consider this your intro to weed etiquette -- Marijuana Manners 101.

How much are doctors legally required to tell you about your unborn child's test results? Apparently not everything, according to a lawsuit happening in Pennsylvania. #ReproductiveRights
When politicians debate reproductive rights, they don’t just argue over when life begins for a fetus. They often also decide how much the woman carrying it should be told. Before a woman can obtain an abortion, for example, Pennsylvania law requires she be told of alternatives like adoption. If a fetus is diagnosed in utero with Down Syndrome, meanwhile, her doctor must provide information about treatment and support options. But under a 27-year-...

Nope, sorry National Guardsmen, you don't get your damages for exposure to toxic chemicals during the Iraq war. Your lawyer filed in the wrong state.
The military contractor Kellogg, Brown and Root successfully argued that Oregon was not the proper jurisdiction for the case.

The Verdict is a victory for all those awaiting trial in Houston. Even with the 9th Circuit decision, the Defendant is on notice of what a jury might do if they can't resolve without trial. #settlements

"We're going to standup for your right to speak anonymously," said AVVO's General Counsel Josh King.  "Our position is going to be that speakers have a first amendment right to speak anonymously."
A landmark lawsuit in Seattle could affect your right to anonymity when you post a negative review online. The case involves a woman who gave her attorney a negative review on a Seattle-based website. The attorney says the woman's claims are false and she wants that woman's name.
