    The Legal Geeks ^ | May 10, 2016 | Josh Gilliland
    Captain America Civil War is an amazing super-hero movie. It is the model of how to have a large cast of characters in a film with action, humor, plot, and heart. The only thing it lacks is a Constitutional law. The gross civil rights violations are reason enough for Captain America to go rogue.
  • Can a Fighting Words Charge Lead to a Higher Sentence Because of the Defendant's Racial Motivation?

    Yes, the Ohio Court of Appeals held Thursday.? "Fighting words"—face-to-face personal insults that are likely to start a fight—are generally constitutionally unprotected, and can be criminally punished (usually under disorderly conduct statutes). But in R.A.V. v. City of St. Paul (1992), the Supreme Court struck down a statute that imposed heightened punishment on those "fighting words" that "arouse[] anger, alarm or resentment in others on the basis of race": Even when some speech (e.g., fighting words, libel, obscenity, etc.) is constitutionally unprotected, the law can't selectively impose extra punishment on unprotected speech that, say, expresses racist views. Yet in Wisconsin...

    (Reuters) - A federal appeals court on Friday revived a philosophy professor’s lawsuit against a public university in southern Ohio that reprimanded him for refusing to address a transgender student by her preferred pronouns. The 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Nicholas Meriwether can try to prove Shawnee State University violated his First Amendment free speech and religious rights by mandating pronouns that he said did not reflect “biological reality” and contradicted his devout Christian beliefs.

    We use to argue over Obama's citizenship! Everyone settled on .. "His mamma was a US citizen" so he was eligible! Now, I ask you .. Kammel Toe Harris is born of two parents .. Not of US citizen parents ... why is no one talking about this?

    It was a solemn day in a federal court room in Rome, when Arturo d’Ello took the stand. The former employee of the 8th largest defense contractor in the world Leonardo SpA - which is partially owned by the Italian government – began his shocking testimony with the usual swearing in on the Bible. That was the last thing that was ordinary about the day. As the crowd gasped, he outlined the scheme that proved successful in using Leonardo computer systems and military satellites located in Pescara, Italy to help Dominion steal the U.S. election for Joseph Biden. He explained...

    Relationships can be tricky. Some get the best out of it, while some are left broken-hearted. But what happens when one is in a relationship for quite some time, and it doesn’t work out even after 8 years? Yes, that’s right. Eight years! A Zambian woman has taken her boyfriend to the civil court for wasting her time and not marrying her after being together for eight years. The story has been doing the rounds on social media. Frustrated lady Gertrude Ngoma said she was tired of waiting. Her partner Herbert Salaliki, 28, had promised to marry her but did...

    During a Monday interview with CNN’s “New Day,” Georgia Lt. Gov. Geoff Duncan (R) pushed back against allegations of voter fraud or a rigged election in his state. Duncan and Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp (R) recently shot down calling a special legislative session to overturn the results of the state’s general election. Although some Republicans have claimed the election was rigged in Georgia, which certified former Vice President Joe Biden as the winner, Duncan said he believes his state’s election process “was fair and legal.” He added Georgia’s recount will “verify what we originally came up with.

    “With all due respect to the Attorney General, there hasn’t been any semblance of a Department of Justice investigation. We have gathered ample evidence of illegal voting in at least six states, which they have not examined. We have many witnesses swearing under oath they saw crimes being committed in connection with voter fraud. As far as we know, not a single one has been interviewed by the DOJ. The Justice Department also hasn’t audited any voting machines or used their subpoena powers to determine the truth,” Trump’s personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani and Trump campaign senior legal advisor said in...

That is not the case here, they just simply don’t want to hold any evidentiary hearings over Brian’s fraud...

She is also not a lawyer for the President in his personal capacity.”

    A federal judge ruled Friday that the head of the U.S. Agency for Global Media (USAGM), which oversees Voice of America (VOA) and other networks, unconstitutionally interfered with the news service when he went after its journalists for alleged bias against President Trump, NPR reports. Five suspended officials from the USAGM sued CEO Michael Pack in early October, accusing him of violating the "firewall" that protects international broadcasters from political interference. The officials alleged that Pack and others investigated and punished journalists for negative stories about the president, as well as stories about now President-elect Joe Biden and the racial...

  • Preparing for a Disputed Presidential Election: An Exercise in Election Risk Assessment and Management

    11/08/2020 8:56:25 AM PST · by dontreadthis · 16 replies ^ | Winter 2019 | Edward B. Foley
    This Article considers the possibility that a major dispute over the outcome of the 2020 presidential election could arise, even without foreign interference or some other extraordinary event, but rather just from the ordinary process of counting ballots. Building upon previous research on the “blue shift” phenomenon, whereby adjustments in vote tallies during the canvassing of returns tends to advantage Democratic candidates, it is easy to imagine a dispute arising if this kind of “blue shift” were consequential in the presidential race. Using examples from both Pennsylvania and Arizona, two states susceptible to significant “blue shifts” in previous elections, the...

    WILMINGTON, Del, Nov 5 (Reuters) -- President Donald Trump called in his lawyers to shore up his dimminbg re-election prospects, but legal experts said the flurry of lawsuits had little chance of changing the outcome but might cast doubt on the process. As Trump's paths to victory narrowed, his campaign on Thursday was ramping up legal challenges and filed its latest case in Nevada. On Wednesday, the campaign sued in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Georgia and asked to join a pending case at the U.S. Supreme Court. Experts said the litigation serves to drag out the vote count and postpone major...

    Hawaii Free Press ^ | October 26, 2020 | Grassroot Institute
    The state Constitution says emergency proclamations expire after 60 days, but Hawaii now is in its eighth month of lockdown. Groups nationwide have filed lawsuits against the coronavirus emergency orders declared by their governors. Some have been successful. But what about Hawaii, whose governor just yesterday extended his state-of-emergency proclamation by another month, till the end of November? Can Hawaii’s seemingly interminable state lockdown, first ordered in March, ever be overturned in court? The Grassroot Institute webinar held Friday, Oct. 23, discussed the trends of lawsuits across the nation and whether they offer any hope for Hawaii. Our special guests...

  • The Secret Ballot at Risk

    08/22/2020 5:21:42 AM PDT · by BlackAdderess · 25 replies ^ | Caitriona Fitzgerald, et al
    The right to cast a secret ballot in a public election is a core value in the United States’ system of self-governance. Secrecy and privacy in elections guard against coercion and are essential to integrity in the electoral process. Secrecy of the ballot is guaranteed in state constitutions and statutes nationwide. However, as states permit the marking and transmitting of marked ballots over the Internet, the right to a secret ballot is eroded and the integrity of our elections is put at risk.
