Sometimes dicta causes more controversy than the holding.
 
This is sure to be a controversial statement - especially south of the Mason-Dixon line.  What do you think?

This is a great new law. People with felony convictions in their past deserve a second chance, and they don't get one when they have a felony haunting every job application they fill out.
 
Our guest blogger Alex Haney is back with another great article about the felony expungement law that was recently signed by Kentucky Governor Bevin. What does it mean for you? Follow the link to find out more.

The goal of felony expungement is to allow former felons a chance at normality in life. This guest blog post explores the pros and cons of the new bill.

Happy to know that it reduced the waiting period following completion of sentence from 10 years to 5 years before a person can seek expungement.

Interesting stuff going on in Louisville right now.  Race issues, but very different than what you'd think.
 
Check out our Law Student Blog contributor, James Haney's, post about Judge Olu Stevens, the Louisville, KY judge that dismissed a jury because of the race of its members. What do you think? Was Judge Stevens right or wrong to dismiss the jury?
In this guest blog post, we explore the constitutional implications of Judge Olu Stevens's jury dismissal on racial grounds.

Hope this helps!  It is 6th Circuit specific, but might work elsewhere.
 
Here's an article Justin Lawrence wrote for The Advocate, describing how injured plaintiffs can preserve a claim when the company or person that injured them files for bankruptcy. Check it out!

You know, it just takes one professor to have the courage to stand up and say, "Guys, maybe we shouldn't make it so easy to call us the ASS school."  Where was that one guy?!
 
Public Service Announcement to the Law Schools of America:
If you're going to rename your law school, try to remember that we are all twelve year olds at heart and don't give it a name that abbreviates to ASSol or ASS Law. Thank you, that is all.
Shortly after Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia’s death in February, George Mason University announced it would rename its law school to honor the f ...

How to calculate a Ch. 13 bankruptcy payment - one of the few things I've ever had to condense to a blog post that I had trouble condensing.

It's scary thinking this can happen again, to anyone really. I have always told people to use Google's email service hoping it was more secure than having a traditional webhost run their email.

As the parent of a child with Down Syndrome, I really appreciate seeing our government leaders taking these inclusive steps.
 
Kudos to the US Supreme Court for altering tradition to assist attorneys with disabilities, and especially to Justice John Roberts for learning some ASL for the occasion!
In an historic first, U.S. Chief Justice John Roberts used sign language from the Supreme Court bench on Tuesday as he welcomed a dozen deaf and hard-of-hearing lawyers who took part in a ceremony authorizing them to argue cases before the court.

           What else is hidden in you Facebook account?
Users have discovered hundreds of messages locked in a hidden inbox within Facebook’s messaging system.
The inbox, accessible on the web or Facebook Messenger apps for smartphones and tablets, is part of Facebook’s filtering system, designed to catch spam and other unwanted messages.
However, users, including myself and others within the Guardian, have discovered their “filtered” inbox full of legitimate messages that never made it to the main inbox or Messenger app.
#facebook #email #apps4social  
It was recently discovered that there is a hidden inbox on Facebook full of messages that the social networking behemoth has deemed spam. As it does, curiosity got the better of us, so as well as delving into our own inbox, we went out onto the streets to ask others what was hiding in theirs...

Seriously, the entirely different impression created by a slightly different angle or steadier camera is amazing. You've got to watch this.
 
These videos are just amazing. So much of what we think we see on camera is shaped by what we already think. This means you have to find out more before you judge either the police or the other person in some of these cell phone/body cam videos!
Thousands of officers wear cameras now, but what they reveal and hide may surprise you.

I love this. I grew up around a pit bull, and the dog loved my siblings and I. When people say all pit bulls are aggressive, I think back to my childhood, and how friendly ours was.
