Pacific Legal Foundation will present oral argument at the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in Friends of Tahoe Forest Access v. U.S. Department of Agriculture on Monday, February 8. In this episode, PLF Senior Staff Attorney Ted Hadzi-Antich previews his argument that challenges the U.S. Forest Service’s plan to curtail motorized access to hundreds of miles of roads and trails in the Tahoe National Forest that were previously open to the public. The lawsuit targets the implementation of the Forest Service’s 2005 Travel Management Rule at the Tahoe National Forest. PLF argues the Service violated the National Environmental Policy Act by failing to adequately analyze the human impacts of prohibiting access to more than 800 miles of formerly accessible trails, failing to conduct a site-specific analysis of the routes at issue, and improperly prejudicing off-road recreation in developing the purpose and need for the regulatory decision.

On this episode we review the Court's opinion in James v.

On this episode, we review the Court's opinion this week in Montgomery v. Louisiana, which consider whether a prior Supreme Court ruling, Miller v. Alabama (2012), should apply retroactively to juvenile defendants that were sentenced to life without parole prior to the Court's decision. Miller v. Alabama held that mandatory sentences of life without the possibility of parole violates the Eighth Amendment's prohibition against "cruel and unusual punishment."
As the first elections of 2016 approach, Professors Epstein and Yoo are talking politics in the faculty lounge. Is a President Trump or President Hillary the more menacing idea? Is Ted Cruz eligible to be president (the answer’s not as clear as you might think)? Is Hillary more likely to end up in a courthouse than the White House? And is the Supreme Court about to strike a blow against public sector unions? All those topics plus the most important question of all: is Peyton Manning or Cam Newton going to take home the Lombardi Trophy? On that front, Justices Epstein and Yoo issue a split decision. “Omaha!” EJHill! Read On The post Super Bowl of Law appeared first on Ricochet.
Even lawyers start the new year with at least a few resolutions. Some are predictable, falling into the usual categories like exercise or diet. However, creating legal technology based resolutions can really help your practice and overall happiness.

To help listeners with some ideas, Dennis Kennedy and Tom Mighell discuss their 2016 technology resolutions in this episode of The Kennedy-Mighell Report.

Roger Scruton is certainly no stranger to Liberty Law Talk. His return is occasioned by Bloomsbury's republication of his 1985 title, Fools, Frauds, and Firebrands, a book that caused tremendous academic controversy, threats against the publisher, and the book's eventual scuttling by Longman, its original publisher. Scruton's crime was to have attempted to take the New Left seriously, finding it severely wanting, if not absurd. We revisit the book's fallout, discuss its ideas, and consider the state of contemporary Leftist thinking. The post Dismantling the Leftist Academic Complex: A Conversation with Roger Scruton appeared first on Online Library of Law & Liberty.

Last week the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Heffernan v. City of Paterson. Police officer Jeffrey Heffernan was demoted because his supervisors believed that by holding a yard sign he was supporting the challenger in the local race for mayor. Everyone agrees that if Heffernan actually had been holding the sign in support of the mayoral challenger, the demotion would have violated his First Amendment rights (as made applicable to states and municipalities by the Fourteenth Amendment). But Heffernan was not supporting any candidate; he was merely picking up a sign to deliver it to his mother. The case presents the question whether Heffernan may invoke the protection of the First Amendment when he was not actually engaged in speech or association.During the course of the argument, Justice Samuel Alito aptly described the case as “like a law school hypothetical.” No doubt he thereby meant to convey the oddity of the case, and perhaps its relative unimportance. Really, how often ...

On January 5, 2016, President Obama announced he would be taking executive action to reduce gun violence. Surrounded by families of the Sandy Hook tragedy and other mass killings, he vowed to not allow guns to get in the wrong hands. In the past decade, more than 100,000 people have died as a result of gun violence. So, will the President’s recent action impact gun control or will all remain the same? In this episode of Lawyer 2 Lawyer, host Bob Ambrogi joins David B. Kopel, adjunct professor of advanced constitutional law at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law and Laura Cutilletta, senior staff attorney at the Law Center to Prevent Gun Violence as they take a look at this executive order on guns, “smart guns”, state laws, public reaction, and the impact this executive order could have on gun violence. Special thanks to our sponsor, Clio.

Suppose a court holds in the context of a habeas petition that a constitutional right is not yet “clearly established.” Can we conclude from this that the right does not exist? The answer, of course, is “no”—it would be error to treat this case as having held that there is no such right. Yet in case after case, across multiple areas of law, judges (and their clerks) make precisely these types of “deference mistakes”: they rely on precedent without understanding the standard of review or burden of proof that governed that precedent. That includes the particular mistake described here: courts regularly rely on precedents holding that a constitutional right was not “clearly established” to conclude that the right does not exist. Nor is the problem confined to individual cases. Deference mistakes can propagate over time, leading to systematic shifts in legal doctrine. Jonathan Masur is the John P. Wilson Professor of Law, David and Celia Hilliard Research Scholar, and Director of the W ...

If you are one of the 40 million Americans who funded their education with student loan debt, you may be asking yourself now what? The bad news: you probably can’t get out of it with bankruptcy. The good news: with over 1.3 trillion dollars locked up in American educational loans, the country has a vested interest to pave the way for repayment. So what does that mean for you?

Islamic Republic of Iran et al., Case No. 10 Civ. 4518," violates the separation of powers.

When many of us think of actor and comedian Bill Cosby, we think of the jovial dad, Cliff Huxtable from the Cosby Show. Over the past year, at least 58 women have come forward alleging that Bill Cosby had drugged and sexually assaulted them at different times and in various locations. Amidst a multitude of allegations from these women over the years, now, Bill Cosby faces criminal charges for allegedly drugging and sexual assaulting former Temple University staffer Andrea Constand back in 2004. In this episode of Lawyer 2 Lawyer, host Bob Ambrogi joins attorney Scott Greenfield, criminal defense attorney out of New York, and attorney Murray Newman, a former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney out of Houston as they take a look at the legal issues surrounding Bill Cosby. We will discuss the allegations, prosecution vs. defense strategy, his arrest, the recent criminal charge of sexual assault, the statute of limitations on sexual assault, the impact on his public image, and wha ...
Do you charge for initial consultation in your practice? If not, you might be missing out on higher quality meetings and additional revenue. Despite this claim, most lawyers are worried that changing their fee structure will chase potential clients away from the front door. How can we, as lawyers, offer discernible value and make people actually want to pay for an initial consultation? In this episode of The Legal Toolkit, Jared Correia discusses charging for initial consultations with Sarah Poriss, a foreclosure defense lawyer in Connecticut. Sarah explains why she charges initial consultation fees, how to offer the right legal service value in these appointments, and ways lawyers can determine their rates. Let’s face it, she says, are you looking for the type of client who pays or one who doesn’t? Topics include: How fees improve the meeting quality: on-time, attentive, and serious clients The risks of charging initial consultation Gaining an edge on your competition Setting the ...
