    Mass Lawyers Weekly readers want investigation of Elizabeth Warren license problemPosted by William A. Jacobson Friday, September 28, 2012 at 7:42pm Mass Lawyers Weekly ran a reader poll today regarding the following question: Should U.S. Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren be investigated for possibly practicing law without a license? I heard about the poll in an email just after 1:30 p.m. today. I did not publicize the poll because while online polls are not scientific, I also didn’t want someone to say that the results were skewed by me publicizing the poll.

    Elizabeth Warren 2002 – Working on at least 10 private legal mattersBy Editorial Staff /// September 28, 2012 **SNIP** The Warren campaign refuses to detail the full scope of Warren’s private legal activities from her Cambridge office, but details are being uncovered day by day. Much as with Warren’s history of “checking the box,” Warren’s campaign makes categorical statements, refuses to release records, and waits to see if others will be able to find details and documents. The evidence mounts day by day that Warren did a lot more than “dabble” in the practice of law from her Massachusetts office....

    The Boston Globe has published a story by Michael Levenson about Elizabeth Warren defending her asbestos lawsuit legal work which is most notable by what it does not mention: her lack of a license to practice law in Massachusetts. As revealed by Professor William Jacobson of Legal Insurrection, Warren has no license to practice law in that state: Warren is not licensed to practice law in Massachusetts. Warren’s name does not turn up on a search of the Board of Bar Overseers attorney search website (searches just by last name or using Elizabeth Herring also do not turn up any...

    When the Supreme Court on Monday began hearing oral arguments in the cases challenging the constitutionality of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act—AKA “Obamacare”—Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan showed up to hear the arguments and gave no indication she would recuse herself from judging the cases even though she had cheered enactment of Obamacare as an Obama political appointee and had personally assigned her top deputy in the Obama Justice Department to defend the law in federal court. A federal law, 28 USC 455, says a Supreme Court justice must recuse from “any proceeding in which his impartiality might...
  • Sessions presses Holder on Justice Kagan's involvement with health law

    Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) on Tuesday pressed Attorney General Eric Holder for more information about Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan's involvement with the healthcare reform law after new emails emerged showing her rooting for the law when she was solicitor general. (snip) The emails have rekindled calls for Kagan to recuse herself from ruling on the healthcare reform law next year because of a provision of the U.S. code that calls on justices to disqualify themselves when they have "expressed an opinion concerning the merits of the particular case in controversy" while in government service.
