    Non-Sequiturs

    Non-Sequiturs: 07.15.15

    * Doesn’t the increasingly bloated Republican presidential primary field seem like a plot from Veep rather than real life? Well, take a break from the world’s insanity and break down the election law quandary from the season finale of the hit show. [Law.com]

    * Remember that viral video about cat-calling on NYC streets from last year? Yeah, the woman featured is suing the makers of the video (along with Google, YouTube, and TGI Fridays). Only problem? She got nothing in writing. [Slate]

    * I sure hope no attorneys were sucked into this M&A fraud. [Forbes]

    * OIL AND HEAVY WATER FOR EVERYBODY — a take on the Iran deal. [Breaking Energy]
