This is the kind of thing you may only need to know once, but it's important that you don't make a wrong move if it ever happens to you.

Two things this emphasizes:

1. Since this was a 4-4 decision, it is just one more reason that the next president's Supreme Court appointment matters immensely.
2. Since this was a Republican Attorney General-led effort, there is danger the Republicans have further damaged ties with the majority of the Hispanic and Latino community.  This is especially troubling for Republicans if it causes swing states such as Florida and New Mexico to swing Democratic in the presidential election.
 
The Obama Administration's immigration plan, which would have allowed about 4 million immigrants to avoid deportation, was struck down by the US Supreme Court today in a 4-4 decision.  It is now unlikely that the immigration plan will go forward.

May 2016 Illinois Criminal Case List Now Available For Download

The May 2016 case list features...

http://illinoiscaselaw.com/may-16-illinois-criminal-case-list-now-available/

- Hands down the most controversial DUI case we've seen in awhile. It involves a logically reasoned decision accurately interpreting precedent...and completely ignores what happens in real life. (Hey, don't take my word for it; check it out for yourself.)

- This real life text from a Defendant in an interrogation room: "Busted!!!!! Don't text back or call. In police station. Springfield."

- An unconstitutional as applied challenge to the definition of "household member" that the defense actually wins.

http://illinoiscaselaw.com/may-16-illinois-criminal-case-list-now-available/

- From SCOTUS a Batson challenge won by the defense featuring appellate prosecutor arguments that had even the conservative judges questioning the State's veracity.

- An answer to the question if it is ever legal for prisoners to possess a shank when detained in a dangerous and hostile prison.

- A search and seizure/DUI case featuring a battle for credibility between defendant's wife and numerous police officers. Judge believed the lady. (The case involved the cops pushing their way into a home then coming into court and saying she let them in.)

- A case that may have prosecutors rethinking how they handle gun prosecutions.

- A judge who gets his sentencing decision reversed because he failed to say these "magic words".

- ... another medical doctor-sexual assault case (we also had one last month)!

Even some lawyers are reading more into this than they should.
 
A lot of posts are being made about the Supreme Court's refusal to hear two cases - one from Connecticut and one from New York - that upheld state level bans of many kinds of semi-automatic rifles.  Here's what the Court's decision means:

1. It doesn't set any new law or any precedent for another Appeals Court to follow.  It simply refuses to comment on the Second Circuit Court of Appeals' (which CT and NY both fall within) decision that semi-automatic weapons can be constitutionally banned.  It does not necessarily mean that the federal government can or will follow suit.
2. However, it is important to note that the Supreme Court also refused to hear a case from Illinois - in the Seventh Appellate Circuit - where semi-automatic weapons were similarly banned.  Both Scalia and Thomas dissented from that refusal, meaning they wanted to hear the case and may have overturned the IL law.  Although Scalia is now dead and has not been replaced, Thomas did not dissent from the refusal to hear the CT and NY cases.  This may mean that the Supreme Court's interest in overturning semi-automatic weapon bans is waning or gone altogether.
3. It is tempting to think the Supreme Court is sending a message by refusing to hear this case shortly after Orlando.  However, the decision may have been made before the Orlando nightclub shooting.
4. The Supreme Court has previously heard a case where handguns were banned, and overturned the ban as unconstitutional.  It could be that the refusal to hear the CT, NY, and IL cases on semi-automatic weapons is a sign the Supreme Court does not think such bans are unconstitutional.  However, that is not a decided fact.
5.  Most likely, this issue will be resolved as more and more states or municipalities pass similar semi-automatic weapon bans.  They will be challenged, and eventually a Circuit Court of Appeals will overturn one as unconstitutional.  (The Sixth Circuit, which covers KY and OH, is a good possibility for this.)  The Supreme Court is more likely to hear the case, and then decide the constitutionality of such bans as a matter of law, if different Appellate Circuits have reached different conclusions.

We'll post an article on the website about the history of gun bans and regulation soon.

Big Win for Net Neutrality!!!
 
The DC Court of Appeals just ruled that the internet is a utility, like water or electricity, that needs strong regulation.  This is a win for consumers and advocates of net neutrality, and a loss for big telecommunication companies that hoped to charge higher rates in exchange for making some websites load faster than others.

Common question in my practice.  How about yours?
 
This is what happens when one spouse files bankruptcy, but the other spouse avoids filing. It's possible and easy to pull off if the couple's assets and debts make it attractive for only one person to file.

Scary stuff here.
 
Dangerous argument of the week (month? year?):  that a judge might be unfit to preside over a case based on ethnicity.  It seems the argument is being fleshed out as much by the media as by the speaker, but nevertheless it needs to be put back under the rock from whence it came.
Donald Trump is claiming that a judge with Mexican heritage who is overseeing a lawsuit against Trump University has an "inherent conflict of interest" given the presumptive GOP nominee's rhetoric on immigration.
