It reminded me that even though the river may be quiet today, tomorrow a trout may rise. And I’ll be there to catch it.” – testimonial from Project Healing Waters “Many of us would probably be better fishermen if we did not spend so much time watching and waiting for the world to become… [read post]

Image:  empty_chair.jpg On Campus Interviews: the holy grail of the law school job hunt. Or it’s supposed to be. Right? For every student who enters law school the “correct” path is clear. Year one: be in the top 10% of your class and find something useful, maybe even “public interest work,” during the summer. Year two: participate in On Campus Interviews (OCIs) and land a well-paying job for the following summer. 2L Summer:… [read post]

Making a decision about what policy/social justice area to pursue for a career can… [read post]

Image:  jli_bio_pic.jpg Editor's Note: We are pleased to share this update from our 2013 Public Interest Scholarship Winner Jennifer Li. Justice William Brennan once wrote, “There is almost nothing more convincing than a live human being who takes the stand, points a finger at the defendant, and says ‘That’s the one!’”  Indeed, as any faithful viewer of Law & Order can attest, it is… [read post]

In a decision just released, the FCC fined a noncommercial FM station $8000 for failing to make its public inspection file available when it was requested.  The FCC made clear that past cases where a noncommercial station was given only an admonition for similar violations were no longer good law, finding that the public file was an important part of the station's obligations to the public and the failure to make it available was a serious violation.  This case should serve as a warning to all… [read post]

The FCC announced an extension of the comment filing deadline in its proceeding looking at the Future of the Media (see our summary here).

We really need legislation to stop SLAPPs. According to the Ontario Anti-SLAPP panel report: “Strategic litigation against public participation (SLAPP) has been defined as a lawsuit initiated against one or more individuals or groups that speak out or take a position on an issue of public interest. SLAPPs use the court system to limit the effectiveness of the opposing party’s speech or conduct. SLAPPs can intimidate opponents, deplete their resources, reduce their ability to… [read post]

The FCC today heard from its Future of Media task force, when its head, Steven Waldman presented a summary of its contents at its monthly meeting.  At the same time, the task force issued its 475 page report - which spends most of its time talking about the history of media and the current media landscape, and only a handful of pages presenting specific recommendations for FCC action.  The task force initially had a very broad mandate, to examine the media and how it was serving local… [read post]

The International Cemetery, Cremation and Funeral Association (ICCFA) made an old but persuasive argument to get the IRS to exempt cemetery care trusts from the Medicare tax that will fund ObamaCare.  As discussed in a prior post, the IRS had initially proposed to apply the tax to both cemetery care trusts and preneed trusts.  With the publication of the final rule, the IRS acknowledged similarities of the cemetery care trust and the preneed trust in that each is a collection of many small… [read post]
