Re: LEAVE Brexit Vote: Leave EU Thu 23 June - Market and US Election Impact

This case could be the U.K.'s Marbury v. Madison, establishing judicial primacy. The question will be -- is the U.K. a government of men and women or of laws?

By the way, I really like the name of this guy: Lord Pannick, QC. If only his first name was "Dante."

To save himself, Netanyahu will finally require ultra Orthodox Jews to serve in the IDF. He has the staying power of Joe Arpaio.

Re: UPDATE: Advice requested on brief language -- IAALs and IANALs welcome

I can tell how an appellate panel is going to decide no later than the first question. When it comes to SCOTUS most of us can tell when the Court grants cert.

The art of appellate advocacy is overblown. The only place where argument is of any utility these days is closing argument to the jury.

Re: Larry Klayman

I presume Klayman is representing himself. Nope. Represented by the Michael Cohen sound-alike, Stephen A. Bogorad. He did a creditable job with a losing case. Clay Smith was just awful. It sounded like he read the briefs this morning on the subway on the way to the hearing. Prediction: Klayman will...

Re: UPDATE: Advice requested on brief language -- IAALs and IANALs welcome

I've always thought that most appellate court argument is just theater. The judges usually have read the papers, have bench briefs from their clerks and know where they want to go. In my view it's rare to turn around an appellate judge who has made up her mind, and most have before oral argument. T...

Re: Larry Klayman

I'm listening to the hearing. Clay Smith, counsel for the disciplinary board is awful. He's lobbed a softball about Rotunda's ethics opinion. He hits maybe a single.

Bogorad is smoother. He sounds like Michael Cohen. But he's got an uphill battle.

Some fraudulent conveyances are more likely to be criminal than others. Aren't some of the charges against Avenatti along those lines? (I'm not including the alleged outright theft from Avenatti's client trust accounts.)
