Brian Leiter (Chicago), Ranking Boycott Update: [I]t's a safe assumption that any school that hasn't announced (or doesn't announce very soon) is also not joining the boycott. Alas, if only 15 or 20 schools boycott, that will not create insurmountable obstacles for, Why Some Law Schools Are... [read post]

ShareThe Supreme Court heard a confusing and wide-ranging discourse yesterday in MOAC Mall Holdings LLC v. Transform Holdco LLC. For the generalist Supreme Court follower, the case is a technical one, involving the authority of a court of appeals to review a bankruptcy order authorizing a bankrupt tenant to sell its interest in a lease. To give a sense of the context, the parties to the case are the landlord at Mall of America, the largest retail shopping center in North America, and Transform Holdco, a shell entity created to purchase most of the operating assets held by Sears before… [read post]

The latest mainstream version of the ubiquitous Wi-Fi standard, known as IEEE 802.11ax or “Wi-Fi 6,” offers substantial technological improvements over traditional Wi-Fi, including Wi-Fi 6’s immediate predecessor—Wi-Fi 5 (IEEE 802.11ac). In particular, Wi-Fi 6 offers faster performance, lower power consumption, and better battery life, all while enabling reduced network congestion and latency. These substantial improvements made over even the immediate predecessor in Wi-Fi technology are made possible by several key technological advances. Wi-Fi 6 has enjoyed… [read post]

By George F. Indest III, J.D., M.P.A., LL.M., Board Certified by The Florida Bar in Health Law On November 10, 2022, the US Supreme Court announced that it would weigh in on what it means to commit identity theft. In the case the Supreme Court accepted for review, the petitioner, a managing partner at a psychological services company, was convicted of Medicaid fraud in Texas in 2013. As the dispute comes to the Supreme Court, he's challenging a separate conviction under federal law that makes it a crime to use another person's identity while committing another crime (identity… [read post]

Factor, the managed services company that spun off in 2019 from alternative legal services provider Axiom, describes itself as providing “complex legal work at scale” for the corporate legal market it serves. But more recently, it has begun to position itself as falling within a new category of alternative legal services. It calls this new category “integrated law,” and describes it as bringing together the expertise of traditional law, the efficiency of new law, and the business alignment of in-house law. On this episode of LawNext, Varun Mehta,… [read post]

Andrew Coan (University of Arizona, James E. Rogers College of Law) has posted What Is the Matter with Dobbs? on SSRN.  Here is the abstract: Contrary to its critics, Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization is not illegitimate or lawless. It is a highly consequential but fundamentally ordinary example of the inextricable connections between morality and constitutional law. If abortion is akin to murder, Dobbs could not—and should not—have come out any other way. If abortion is essential to personal autonomy and equal citizenship, the case was wrongly… [read post]

A cien años de su muerte en una cárcel en Leavenworth, Kansas, el gobierno federal decretó que el 2022 fuese nombrado el año de Ricardo Flores Magón. 2022 también ha sido el año en el que el modelo de seguridad pública que el Estado mexicano ha implementado informalmente desde el 11 de diciembre de 2006 ha tomado la forma jurídica que, posiblemente, tendrá hasta el año 2028. En este año, pues, el derecho y la historia se cruzan para hacer una celebración de la ironía: al mismo tiempo que… [read post]

Prof. McConnell is one of the top First Amendment law scholars in the country, and I was delighted that he passed along this item: Much of the commentary on today's argument in 303 Creative starts from the premise that the case pits free speech (or maybe religious freedom) against LGBTQ rights. The headline in The Economist reads: "A new Supreme Court case may dampen protections for LGBT people." Anyone listening carefully to the argument will discover that this framing is off the mark. Both sides in the argument were peppered with hypotheticals—some of them bizarre—about… [read post]

Australian nonprofit the Human Rights Law Centre Tuesday reported that 60 percent of legislation regarding human rights between 2019 and 2021 was passed by the Australian Federal Parliament with no review by the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights. The Committee was created in 2012 “to examine all bills and legislative instruments for compatibility with human rights, and to report to both Houses of Parliament on its findings.” However, according to the report, “43 out of 72 pieces of legislation passed in the 2019 – 2022 parliamentary term before human… [read post]
