Re: E. Jean Carroll v. Trump: NYS Supreme Court: Re Alleged Rape; Defamation

"He raped or abused me." "No I didn't." Here's a defamation lawsuit." Sorry, but I find that tactic troubling. Surely a credible defamation suit requires more than that, no? There does appear to be more, as summarized on page 3: After he lied about attacking her, he surrounded that central lie with...

Re: Duncan Hunter (CA-50) and wife indicted for misuse of campaign funds

The government's brief that Bob linked to in the quote below contains the following: "Hunter professes a lathering antipathy against him from local media, but bases this on only a handful of editorials by a single newspaper." I'm not sure exactly what a "lathering antipathy" is, but it's a vivid ima...

Re: 2020 Census Citizenship question

The title is not incorrect, due to a quirk in SDNY practice under which a paper captioned "notice of motion" serves most of the purposes of a "motion" under FRCP 7. Filing a separate paper captioned "motion" is a mild gaucherie in almost all circumstances. This practice is not typical of federal cou...

Re: Unionizing Rideshare Workers/Uber, Lyft

If they start building union benefits in, customers will stop using it and the vicious circle will go the other way. If a driver wants full time and benefits, lots of liveries and taxi companies are still in business and competing. Perhaps we live in different parts of the country, but in the NYC r...
