Re: USA v Roger J. Stone, Jr., USDC-DC, Obstruction, False Statements, Witness Tampering

I concur: the OSC hearing will likely result in some stern words, the apology shuffle, and an expansion of the gag order. And a warning to bring his toothbrush if the need to discuss the order arises again. I think that's probably right - as of today. But Stone has 48 hours before the hearing, whic...

I've got the full draft now; will be reading it over next day or two and (I'm sure) talking with others in my program. But first impression is that it's pretty damn bad.

They definitely told him they were going to walk if he didn't apologize. 100%.

Over/under they took the time to change their underwear first?

Calling opposing counsel a liar is counterproductive. Restate the opposition's claim. Then quote and cite the evidence that refutes the claim. Trust the reader to conclude that opposing counsel lied.

Would you mind if I use the "Question" portion of this with my moot court team? We're working toward oral rounds for a major moot, and I've been trying to get them to see the importance of framing an argument. I think showing them that would help with a couple of points along those lines I've been s...

Article 13/EU Copyright

However, given timelines and the possibility that our EU readers might wish to contact their MEPs, my prelim...

I suspect that the current Supreme Court will, if they grant cert, rule that the bans are "stupid but constitutional." (Or equivalent language.)

I suspect that, even given the high bar on proof of collusion in the CBA, just the fact that a quarterback of his talent did not receive even one lowball offer from a bottom-of-the-league team would go a long way toward making that showing - the evidence of his skill isn't admissible under the CBA b...

Funny thing about court dockets. "Withdrawn" filings don't actually get taken off the docket or removed from public view. There's just a subsequent entry saying that the filing has been withdrawn.
