Can the courts refuse to let them file bankruptcy or is it just automatic if they file?

Re: Trump - POTUS Tweets and Social Media

Just tried it on my phone and liable popped right up. My phone is old though. How’d you manage that? I’m thinking LIB is on the right side of the keyboard. He could mess up the reach for the E but “libal” and “libla” don’t autocorrect into liable. I’m thinking he really thought it was spelled liabl...

Re: Center for Immigration Studies v. Richard Cohen and Heidi Beirich

Having litigated a few RICO cases, this does not sound like a valid one to me. Where are the predicate acts of racketeering activity? It's a long list but I doubt expressing one's opinion that a certain group is a hate group qualifies. Here's the list from 18 U.S.C. §1961(1): “racketeering activity...

I wonder whose ass got chewed out for allowing him to spell it wrong.
That’s how they’re going to spin it but I can’t see how autocorrect could turn libel into liable.

Phrasing is odd, but according to the Coast Guard they’ve all been safely rescued.

The Coast Guard’s presser is odd too, also... refers to them as “passengers” in the headline.
Yeah, it just struck me as weird.

That phrasing is odd. Emergency responders use "recovery" for when there is no "rescue" possible, so it sounds like they had one fatality, but they were all rescued.

Re: TS/Hurricane Dorian -- Puerto Rico, Bahamas, Florida, Carolinas (Not Alabama, Donald.)

Saying that Alabama faced a likely impact is compatible with the official 5% forecast. Saying it faced 0% chance is not compatible. The Bahamas being hit by 185 mph wind was a 5% possibility at one point. The rule of thumb is better safe than sorry. I don’t want Biden excluding states or territorie...
