Morning Docket

Morning Docket: 03.04.08

Pfizer Warner Lambert Rezulin Above the Law blog.jpg* Two new SCOTUS rulings: some obscure-sounding tax decision, and a 4-4 ruling in a case against Pfizer, which leaves intact a Second Circuit decision allowing suits over the company’s Rezulin diabetes treatment to go forward. [SCOTUSblog; New York Times]
* California Supreme Court to hear case on gay marriage ban. (Judge Janice Rogers Brown, look at all the fun you’re missing out on — this is much sexier than all those D.C. Circuit admin cases.) [How Appealing (linkwrap)]
* Bernie Kerik got some lovin’ from book publisher Judith Regan. Her lawyers, not so much — which is why they’re suing her for unpaid fees. [Reuters]
* Judge Mark Filip, formerly of the N.D. Ill., confirmed as Mukasey’s #2 at the DOJ. [Chicago Tribune and Washington Post, via How Appealing]
* Musical chairs: Bill Ohlemeyer, the in-house lawyer who has overseen tobacco litigation for Altria for almost a decade, is joining Boies, Schiller & Flexner. [WSJ Law Blog]
* Suing Al Gore for “the fraud of global warming”? Good luck with that. [Business & Media Institute via Drudge]
