  • Massachusetts Democrats To Force Governor to Seek Waiver from Obamacare Provisions

    A very interesting ACA development is taking place in Massachusetts today as the state that “inspired” Obamacare tries to reconcile its current law with the new federal law. Push back in the compliance effort is coming from an unexpected source, the senior Democratic budget writer in the State Senate, Senator Stephen Brewer, presumably with support from the Senate President as well.
  • Motorola Mobility apparently won an injunction against Apple in Germany over two patents

    Apple knows what it's like to win injunctions against rivals. It won four of them against Samsung (two in Germany, one in the Netherlands and most recently one in Australia; all of them preliminary). Now it seems that Apple has just come out on the losing end of a patent infringement lawsuit. I have received a copy of what purports to be a default judgment by the Mannheim Regional Court barring Apple from selling in Germany -- the single largest market in Europe -- any mobile devices infringing on two Motorola Mobility patents and determining that Apple owes Motorola Mobility...

    In a pending civil lawsuit in a Texas Federal Court, a constitutional nightmare is occurring that could have ominous consequences for all Americans. In violation of the Constitution, The activist federal judge in this case has made a U.S. business owner essentially a slave without any due process or hearing. All of the relevant details of this profoundly disturbing case are summarized at case overview tab on LawInjustice.com. No case in recent judicial history resembles more of a Stalinist show trial. The conduct appears to be more corruption than merely judicial activism and the litany of outrages occurring are almost...

    Dominique Strauss-Kahn may have more to worry about than a possible prison sentence. The IMF chief's alleged sex-assault victim lives in a Bronx apartment rented exclusively for adults with HIV or AIDS, The Post has learned. The hotel maid, a West African immigrant, has occupied the fourth-floor High Bridge pad with her 15-year-old daughter since January -- and before that, lived in another Bronx apartment set aside by Harlem Community AIDS United strictly for adults with the virus and their families. The Post has not been able to ascertain whether the maid, 32, has HIV/AIDS because of medical confidentiality laws.

    Disgraced former Gov. Eliot Spitzer has been identified as a long-standing client of a second high-priced call-girl ring, The Post has learned. The ex-governor regularly patronized Wicked Models, the Manhattan-based operation taken down Tuesday, according to financial documents and other evidence unearthed in a yearlong prostitution in vestigation, law-enforcement sources said.

    The judicial system has a hangover. Call it the Mike Nifong effect. In North Carolina and across the country, prosecutors with upright reputations are having to make assurances that they don't break the rules. Judges and lawyers have taken to using Nifong's name and the outcome of the sexual assault case against Duke University lacrosse case players as a shorthand for all manner of prosecutorial outrages. The case has made it harder for prosecutors nationwide to get funding or laws changed. It has been just over a month since the state Attorney General exonerated the accused and called them the...
  • Remember Cindy Sheehan?

    Wall Street Journal ^ | 6 January 2007 | staff
    When Cindy Sheehan became a celebrity for her "peace" vigil outside President Bush's Texas ranch in 2005, the antiwar left hailed her as a heroine. A DailyKos.com blogger anointed her "'Mother Sheehan,' . . . the bringer of life who has been wronged by state power." A mainstream media columnist proclaimed that "the moral authority of parents who bury children killed in Iraq is absolute." Even before Mrs. Sheehan became a media darling, minority House Democrats called her as a witness at a June 2005 hearing about Britain's so-called Downing Street Memos. Well, she's their problem now. On Wednesday members...

    THE HAGUE, Netherlands - A heart attack killed Slobodan Milosevic in his jail cell, the U.N. war crimes tribunal said, citing preliminary findings from Dutch pathologists who conducted a nearly eight-hour autopsy Sunday on the former Yugoslav leader. The tribunal said pathologists had determined that "Milosevic's cause of death was a 'myocardial infarction.'"Found dead in his cell Saturday morning, the 64-year-old Milosevic had suffered from heart ailments and high blood pressure, and his bad health caused numerous breaks in his four-year, $200 million trial before the tribunal.Some wondered if suicide might have been an out for the man accused of...

    A retired police lieutenant shot and killed one man and wounded another Thursday after the pair broke into his home, Lubbock police officials said. When James Kimber, the 65-year-old former officer, arrived home about 12:10 p.m., he found his garage door ajar and his back door forced open. Police said he then retrieved a gun from his laundry room. As he moved through his ransacked living room and reached the north bedroom, police said, he realized someone was still inside. "He heard the distinct sound of a firearm being cocked," police spokesman Lt. Roy Bassett said. As Kimber entered the...

    PAMPA, Tex., Feb. 9 - No one prosecuted the war on drugs in the Texas Panhandle more zealously than Richard James Roach. As the blustery and hot-tempered Republican district attorney for five counties overrun with methamphetamines, he had eked out an election victory in 2000 vowing a crackdown and was soon gleefully reeling off the harsh sentences he had wrung from juries: 36 years, 38 years, 40 years, 60 years, 75 years - even 99 years. "I think it's quite clear that the good citizens of this district are fed up with drugs," he said. He had barely missed...

    WILKES-BARRE - First the clowns at the Irem Temple Shrine Circus shouted at animal-rights activist Lisa Walker as she protested their event. Later, a "big, giant" high school student working security ran at Walker, knocked her to the ground and dragged her through a field of muddy grass, Walker testified. "He put me in a choke hold," Walker, 43, said Tuesday. "My feet were off the ground. I couldn't see. I couldn't breathe. All I could hear is my son screaming." Walker testified during the first day of trial in her lawsuit against Irem Temple and the security guard, Michael...
