    * WMU Cooley Law School wants you to know the legal job market is BOOMING! Never change, Cooley. [Cooley Law School Blog]

    * The NCAA expressed its concerns with Indiana’s new religious discrimination bill. Somehow the NCAA has the moral high ground. Huh. How did that happen? [Washington Post]

    * Judge grants motion to extend time… in verse. [Western District of Texas]

    * Do you love pre-1972 rock? So does satellite radio! Because it’s all about love and rebellion and not paying copyright royalties. [Managing IP]

    * Did this really need to be a CLE? Are we really abusing the “business casual” regime this much? This is why we can’t have nice things. [ABA]

    * Congressperson caught on tape executing the worst parking job ever. Lat’s take on this story: “Guess they don’t teach parking at Yale Law School.” [Roll Call]

    * Picking apart Better Call Saul’s take on RICO. [Foster PC]

    * If you’re looking for a hot tip for your Fantasy SCOTUS league, then scour confirmation hearing transcripts. Because Chief Justice Roberts either gave away his thoughts on the marriage equality cases. Or he coyly misled the Senate, but that never happens. [Slate]

    * The NCAA may have lost the battle in the Keller EA Sports video games case with its $20 million settlement offer, but it’s clearly out for blood to win the war in the O’Bannon case with its tough cross-examination tactics for the lead plaintiff. [USA Today]

    * GW Law, a school that recently increased its class size by 22 percent and allowed its average LSAT score to slip by two points, yoinked its new dean right out from under Wake Forest’s nose. [GW Hatchet]

    * The legal profession isn’t exactly diverse, and law schools want to change that — the more pictures of “diverse” students they can display on their websites, the better. [Law Admissions Lowdown / U.S. News]

    * Who really cares what prospective jurors wear when they show up for jury duty? The lawyers arguing that being turned away for wearing sneakers affected their clients’ rights in a case, that’s who. [WSJ Law Blog]
