    Morning Docket: 09.06.12

    * Dewey know if Citibank is planning to sue other former D&L partners over their capital contribution loans? According to one court document filed by Luskin Stern & Eisler, the bank’s counsel, the fun has just gotten started. [Am Law Daily]

    * Unlike the voter ID laws in Texas and South Carolina, the Department of Justice has approved New Hampshire’s law of the same ilk. Apparently hippies from the “Live Free or Die” state are incapable of discrimination against minorities. [CNN]

    * Arizona, on the other hand, can discriminate against minorities all the live long day — for now. A federal judge ruled that the “show me your papers” provision of S.B. 1070, the state’s strict immigration law, may be enforced. [Bloomberg]

    * The latest argument raised in the case over the Mongolian Tyrannosaurus Bataar skeleton is that the bones are actually a “Frankenstein model based on several creatures.” This movie is getting boring. [WSJ Law Blog]

    * “[T]he state of New York doesn’t get to be a dance critic.” We’re sure that any man would gladly tell the New York Court of Appeals that lap dancing is a form of art, but should it enjoy a tax exemption? [Associated Press]

    Morning Docket: 08.31.12

    * These are some sad times in Texas, y’all. It really hasn’t been a very good week for the Lone Star state in the courts. First their redistricting plan got thrown out, and now their voter ID law has been struck down. [CNN]

    * Jeh Johnson of the Defense Department may take legal action against the former Navy SEAL who wrote a book about the Osama bin Laden raid, calling it a “material breach” of duty. Must be good; go buy it! [CBS News]

    * Bros will be bros: disbarment has been recommended for an attorney who failed to disclose to clients that he had been suspended for banging an underage chick who worked at his office. [National Law Journal]

    * Here are 15 Northeast law schools ranked by employment rate. After getting excited that mine was on the list — albeit dead last — I realized I’m seriously a low expectation havin’ motherf**ker. [Boston Business Journal]

    * George W. Huguely V, the UVA lacrosse player who beat his girlfriend to death, was sentenced to 23 years in prison. Distasteful joke alert: for his sake, we hope the prison uniforms have poppable collars. [Bloomberg]

    * A Maryland lawyer with autism and Sensory Processing Disorder has created a way for people to stop getting up in your personal space while riding public transportation. Say hello to the Sensory Shield! [Huffington Post]

    * Speaking of the shooting, this is the single best update in the history of updates. [Onion]

    * Here’s how the GOP is trying to work the voter fraud angle. [AlterNet]

    * If you are going to insult your clients, I believe the preferred nomenclature is “muppets” not “toothless cooties.” [Denver Westword]

    * Of COURSE porn is copyrightable. Jesus, it’s not like any bored housewife can do it, though I suppose it is fun when the try. [The Legal Satyricon]

    * What lawyers do in August. [Dealbreaker]

    * if you happen to be in Honolulu this Labor Day, first you should thank the God you pray to that you get to be in Honolulu. But then you might want to check this legal film series “The First Thing We Do, Let’s Film All The Lawyers.” It sounds pretty cool, and might be a nice break from relaxing in paradise. [Law In Film]

    * While not a lot of people graduate with six-figures of debt, a whole bunch of them are lawyers. [The Chronicle of Higher Education]

    * Bombarding your clients with emails is one way to show them that you care. [What About Clients?]
