    Morning Docket

    Morning Docket: 11.10.15

    * Kid gets caught trying to buy skin mag with his dad’s money. Not one copy, but the whole magazine. Proving there are some fantasies too big even with $8 million and a Bryan Cave lawyer in your pocket. [Law360]

    * Chris Christie is taking a strong stand against bestiality. There you go, buddy — it’s these sorts of courageous, controversial positions that will get you back in the prime time debates. [Associated Press]

    * Congratulations to Neal Katyal, who has now argued more cases before the Supreme Court than any male minority lawyer save Thurgood Marshall. With his argument in Montanile v. Board of Trustees of the National Elevator Industry Health Benefit Plan, Katyal passed Drew Days and Wade McCree in this accounting (No, not that Wade McCree). [Supreme Court Brief]

    * Hollywood hotshot gives $5 million to UCLA School of Law. [National Law Journal]

    * Supreme Court ignores all lower courts and expands qualified immunity to cops who base their decisions on well-established action movie tropes. [Huffington Post]

    * Biglaw faces slowdown. [American Lawyer]

    * One law school is taking a stab at the access to justice problem in this country. [Big Law Business / Bloomberg BNA]

    Non-Sequiturs: 12.16.13

    * Mayor Bloomberg is filing suit to overturn New York’s Living Wage law, because wasting a bunch of money pursuing a lawsuit for the last two weeks of his term is the kind of efficiency he brings to the table as a biznessmun. [DNAInfo]

    * Judge Richard Leon puts the NSA metadata surveillance program on ice. Looks like someone’s going to get bugged. [Slate]

    * Someone’s asking for a fake college transcript in Baton Rouge. Pretty sure LSU’s athletic department could give you a hand. [Law and More]

    * Considering the polygamy ruling in Utah, here’s an interesting analysis of the constitutionality of bestiality laws. This seems like an appropriate place to link this song about a guy who broke into the Lincoln Park zoo in Chicago. [The Volokh Conspiracy]

    * Here’s a fun game: replace the name of the school and the course of study and marvel at how easily it could pass for an article Elie wrote. [Huffington Post]

    * These folks got smacked with a cybersquatting charge because they used a logical domain name to publicize an ongoing dispute. It’s a lot easier to sue people than to build a solid home. [IT-Lex]

    * In sad news, the victim in a recent carjacking-related killing was Dustin Friedland, a Syracuse law grad who worked with Adam Leitman Bailey. Our thoughts are with the Friedland family. [NY Daily News]

    * The Beastie Boys are suing GoldieBlox over the latter’s viral ad set to a parody of “Girls.” Unlike GoldieBlox, NYU Law professor Chris Sprigman doesn’t need an elaborate Rube Goldberg machine to burst the Beastie Boys’ bubble. Video embedded after the jump… [Bloomberg Law via YouTube]

    Morning Docket: 04.10.13

    * The National Labor Relations Board, now with fewer recess appointments! Partners from Arent Fox and Morgan Lewis were nominated to fill seats necessary for the board’s quorum. [National Law Journal]

    * Shearman & Sterling seems to be bucking the Biglaw system. The firm is cutting pay for high earners and increasing it for lower-ranking attorneys. We’ll probably have more on this later today. [Reuters]

    * Dentons (formerly known as SNR Denton) recently poached a six-partner team led by Stephen Hill from Husch Blackwell to bolster its white collar practice. Welkom too teh furm, guise! [Am Law Daily]

    * “It is technically more legal to screw a walrus than to get gay married.” You know you live in a very sad place when not only do article headlines like this exist, but they’re also CORRECT. [Death and Taxes]

    * An American Eagle pilot is facing attempted drunk flying charges. Yes, that’s a thing, but come on now, anyone who’s seen the movie Flight knows you can fly a plane while you’re wasted. [Bloomberg]

    * Lindsay Lohan blew off a deposition in Los Angeles yesterday. Cut the girl some slack; she had to appear on the Late Show with David Letterman, which was way more important. [Contra Costa Times]

    Morning Docket: 12.09.11

    * DLA Piper is blaming the Occupy Wall Street movement for Biglaw’s sad, 2011 bonus season. It looks like we can expect a Cravath match from that firm. [Thomson Reuters News & Insight] * We could really use some more law schools — fourth tier law schools, in particular. Say hello to the Savannah Law […]
