The United States Supreme Court struck down same sex marriage bans across the country today.  The conclusion of the 5-4 ruling said it best:

“As some of the petitioners in these cases demonstrate, marriage embodies a love that may endure even past death. It would misunderstand these men and women to say they disrespect the idea of marriage. ... Their hope is not to be condemned to live in loneliness, excluded from one of civilization’s oldest institutions. They ask for equal dignity in the eyes of the law. The Constitution grants them that right."
In a historic decision, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled today that gay and lesbian couples across the country have a constitutional right to marry. The 5-4 decision caps a long and often contentious battle over what many have called the “defining civil rights challenge of our time." While the...

Criminal lawyers, how many different ways are you seeing law enforcement charge in heroin-related arrests in your part of the country?  DWI/DUI?  Money laundering? Distribution?
 
Heroin in Texas: So Many Ways to be Arrested in Heroin-Related Charges

Heroin continues to rise in popularity here in Texas as well as the rest of the country, according to new research studies released this month.  Still, the public's awareness of how big heroin is here in Dallas, Fort Worth, and North Texas remains low while the Mexico Heroin suppliers continue to build their profitable business line.  All of which dovetails into more and more heroin-related arrests as local, state, and federal law enforcement up their efforts to curtail heroin use and heroin overdoses here.  There are all sorts of charges under Texas and federal law that are connected to heroin.

Interesting article on a common issue when couples split...what to do with the house?  Sell, distribute to one spouse, or possibly share?

Parting couples have 3 options: a quick sale, turning the home over to one person or trying to live together.

Never forget the biggest beneficiary of the verdict - the insurance company.  Many injured people don't get to keep the majority of the jury's award!
 
Several attorneys recently posted this article to their feeds.  It tells a sad truth: injured people that pay their premiums still have to pay back insurance companies - and then the insurance companies get to keep the premiums (and sometimes raise them)!  The next time you hear about a huge jury verdict, take a second to wonder how much the injured person actually got to keep and how much was for those poor, suffering insurance companies.

Tort reform is bad people.  The more data we get on it, the worse it gets.  Thank got we don't have this in Kentucky.  I feel sorry for the people in Ohio that live under this type of system.
 
This well-written and thorough article discusses the evils (and that's not hyperbole) of the insurance industry's continuing efforts to shove tort reform down the throats of American citizens.  The greatest trick insurance companies ever pulled?  Convincing the American people that tort reform was good for them.  Fight back now, before it's too late.
“The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.” Verbal (Kevin Spacey) in The Usual Suspects   The second greatest trick may be the insurance industry’s success in getting more than half the states to implement “tort reform.” That achievement was based on the promise that restricting victims’ [...]

My prediction?  Insurance companies will jack up rates over this non-event and pretend Obamacare is to blame.  I base this on nothing other than my total faith in the villainy of insurance companies.
 
Today the United States Supreme Court voted to uphold Obamacare again, which had been challenged in part by a group claiming a single, poorly worded sentence in the law should cause it to be pared back or struck down.  Coverage of the decision in the media has been typically focused on the most partisan aspects, but this link gives a less hysterical and more accurate account of the reason the Court upheld the law.

What does this mean for you?  Nothing.  Everything will continue to operate as it has ever since Obamacare was introduced.  Statistically, this is a good thing for the majority of the readers, but the majority of the readers will think it's a bad thing because Obamacare is poorly understood by (nearly) everyone.

More changes to the VA disability process may be in store after the Wall Street Journal uncovered that a computer program may be awarding veterans more benefits than they would otherwise receive. According to current and former VA employees, VA raters – those who determine the level of disability of a veteran and what compensation the veteran is eligible to receive – are instructed to input a veteran’s reported symptoms into an automated program that calculates the veteran’s disability rating even if the reported symptoms are contradicted by a doctor’s evaluation. In some cases, this causes veterans to receive thousands of dollars in additional benefits that they would not receive if the VA rater examined their case file and assigned a disability rating manually.

Bad laws get bad results.  The state should keep teenage sexual predators from preying on children, but there is no excuse for allowing a 15 year old to be charged as a sex offender for having sex with a 13 year old.  Do the parents need to crack down on their kids?  Sure.  But this is an example of the state criminalizing behavior it has no business getting involved in. 
What do you think?
 
Kentucky's Supreme Court heard an interesting case last week:  a 15 year old and 13 year old were having sexual intercourse with one another and sexting photos to each other.  The 13 year old girl's mother found out and went to the police.  Charges were filed against the 15 year old boy that resulted in him being labeled a sex offender for life, because a minor under 16 cannot legally consent to sex.  However, the girl received no punishment whatsoever.  The Kentucky Supreme Court's opinion could decide whether this outcome violates the 15 year old's constitutional rights.  What do you think?
