    Non-Sequiturs: 01.07.13

    * Here’s the answer to the question everyone’s been asking since December: the Supreme Court will be hearing the gay-marriage cases on March 26 (Prop 8) and March 27 (Windsor). No extra time for args? [WSJ Law Blog (sub. req.)]

    * Wherein Scott Greenfield responds to Mark Herrmann’s thoughts on bench memos — or, in Greenfield’s words, why our important appellate decisions shouldn’t be left “in the hands of children” (aka law clerks). [Simple Justice]

    * Will the latest massive mortgage settlements lead to lawyer layoffs? [Going Concern]

    * Cy Vance’s ears must’ve been ringing when this opinion came out, because the judges on this appellate panel said the prosecution’s case was based on “pure conjecture bolstered by empty rhetoric.” [WiseLawNY]

    * Apparently a Santa Clara law professor is getting pummeled in the comments on various law blogs because of his thoughts on law school. As Rihanna would say, “Shine bright like Steve Diamond.” [Constitutional Daily]

    * Meditation and mindfulness are more mainstream than ever in the practice of law, but given all the tales of stressed out lawyers’ alleged misconduct we hear about, you certainly wouldn’t know it. [Underdog]

    * And from our friends at RollOnFriday, you can see what the folks at Norton Rose do in their spare time….

    Thanks to the Norton Rose / Fulbright & Jaworski merger, lawyers at Fulbright will soon be working Gangnam Style with all of this fabulosity. Aren’t you excited to be joining them in doing the hallway horsey dance?

    Non-Sequiturs: 06.11.12

    * Really, Prometheus was the kind of movie that allows you to think “putting in some lawyers couldn’t have hurt.” [Point of Law]

    * Republicans are just better at naming laws than Democrats. I don’t know why that is, but it is. [Recess Appointment]

    * Stand your ground laws increase homicides. Tomorrow, the gun lobby will tell us that we need to arm ourselves because of the epidemic of people standing their ground and killing innocent, unarmed Americans who weren’t able to buy a gun. [WSJ Law Blog]

    * I almost feel bad for Anthony Kennedy. Every objective indicator proves that he was wrong about what the impact of Citizens United would be, and every month brings a new opportunity to shame Kennedy again. [Election Law Blog]

    * Do you take the Metro North home every day? Like Pete Campbell, you might need an apartment in the city. [Dealbreaker]

    * Defense rests in Roger Clemens trial. I guess the jurors will have to go back to counting sheep in order to get their rest in. [NPR]

    * A judge who meditated would freak me out. Especially if the judge meditated about how you shouldn’t judge people. [Underdog]

    Bar Review Diaries: Discipline, Rural Peepers and Urban Jogging

    Memorial Day has come and gone. Hopefully those of you studying for the bar exam took a little time out for hamburgers and baseball.
