    * Federal government pushes “poor people aren’t real people” mantra a tad further: proposes rule banning smoking in your own home if you live in public housing. [New York Times]

    * The next time you think we have a do-nothing Congress, note that they’ve just passed a law to divvy up asteroids for mining! They’re really hard at work on the pressing issues of today. [KING5]

    * Chief counsel for the Pennsylvania Judicial Conduct Board pulled out of the investigation into Justice Michael Eakin’s troubling emails after someone pointed out that he played a lead role in the justice’s 2011 re-election campaign. Wha? How did anyone think this was OK? I repeat: What the hell is wrong with Pennsylvania’s justice system? [York Daily Record]

    Morning Docket: 08.09.13

    * As “one of the most respected appellate judges of her generation,” Patricia Wald, the first woman appointed to the D.C. Circuit, was awarded the Medal of Freedom. Congrats! [Blog of Legal Times]

    * Biglaw firms saw “anemic” growth in the first half of 2013, and according to the latest Wells Fargo survey, some “minor cuts” are expected in headcount. Well, that’s just great. [Am Law Daily]

    * “It is a period of significant change for the firm. That requires some hard decisions.” Patton Boggs has already conducted layoffs, so what could possibly be next for the firm? [Wall Street Journal (sub. req.)]

    * Sorry guys, but it looks like Reema Bajaj’s bajayjay will be out of session for the foreseeable future. The attorney accused of exchanging sex for office supplies has agreed to a three-year suspension of her law license. [Chicago Tribune]

    * Rather than be bought out by InfiLaw (it could “diminish the value of their degrees”), Charleston School of Law alumni are trying to organize a merger with a public school. Good luck with that. [Greenville News]

    * Nebraska will offer a doctorate in space law, which makes sense because… f**kin’ magnets, how do they work? But really, we’re willing to bet it’s because of all of the crop circles in the state. [Miami Herald]

    * No joke necessary: This law school claims its rights are being infringed upon because it has to disclose how many of its graduates — 7 percent at last count — have passed the bar. [WSJ Law Blog (sub. req.)]

    * Two of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s friends were indicted on obstruction of justice charges. If convicted, the pair will face up to 20 years in prison, and they don’t even have a Facebook fan page to show for it. [Bloomberg]
