Morning Docket

Morning Docket: 10.15.10

* Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, you can’t get fooled again. Well, apparently ICE can, because they tried to deport a U.S. citizen to Mexico… twice. [Associated Press]

* This attorney probably needed a stiff drink after the Second Circuit affirmed an even stiffer $95,000 fine against him. [New York Law Journal]

* I bet J.K. Rowling wishes that she could cast some evanesco on this Harry Potter copyright infringement lawsuit. [Washington Post]

* With the help of the DOJ, Wisconsin is suing to get dirty paper companies to clean up their acts. This would never happen at Dunder Mifflin. [Green Bay Press Gazette]

* Sexual deviants, perverts, and pedophiles, oh my! Tyra Banks gets sued for featuring a 15-year-old “sex addict” on her talk show. [Hollywood Reporter]

* DADT will end on Obama’s watch. Just not right now. He’s got way more important things to do, like trample on other LBGT civil rights claims. [MSNBC; New York Times]

* If WikiLeaks had been around before 9/11, would its founder, Julian Assange, still have been accused of rape in an alleged frame-up job? I think not. [Los Angeles Times]
