How Appealing

Saturday, August 2, 2008

Available online from law.com: Marcia Coyle of The National Law Journal reports that "High Court Review Sought on Judicial Recusals; W.Va. case triggers key ethical query."

An article reports that "Another Circuit Court Kicks Judge Real Off Case." My earlier baseball-themed coverage of yesterday's Federal Circuit ruling appears at this link.

Shannon P. Duffy of The Legal Intelligencer reports that "3rd Circuit Rules Media Has Right to Juror Names." My earlier coverage of yesterday's majority and dissenting Third Circuit opinions appears at this link.

And an article reports that "5th Circuit Throws Out Malpractice Summary Judgment Win for Duane Morris." My earlier coverage of Wednesday's Fifth Circuit ruling appears at this link.

"'Sarah's Law' would not have applied to 'Sarah,' acknowledge backers of the abortion-notification measure; The teen whose death led to calls for parental notification in abortion cases was married and had a child; Critics of California's Prop. 4 file a suit asking to remove her story from the voter guide": This article appears today in The Los Angeles Times.

"9/11 architect: Bin Laden driver no terrorist; Alleged mass murderer Khalid Sheik Mohammed -- testifying as the star witness to close a terror trial -- called Osama bin Laden's driver a poorly educated, primitive pleasure-seeker." Carol Rosenberg has this article today in The Miami Herald. She also has a news update headlined "Convicts at Guantanamo will be jailed apart."

Today in The Los Angeles Times, Carol J. Williams reports that "Guantanamo defendant Hamdan called too lowly for terror role; Khalid Shaikh Mohammed, the self-declared Sept. 11 mastermind, says in written testimony that Osama bin Laden's driver 'was not fit to plan or execute' Al Qaeda attacks; The defense rests."

The New York Times reports that "Terror Trial Nears End as Defense Rests Case."

And The Washington Post reports that "Hamdan Seen as 'Not Fit' for Terror; Alleged 9/11 Architect Says bin Laden's Driver Was 'Not a Soldier.'"

"A Onetime 'Person of Interest' Moves a Step Closer to Public Exoneration": Today in The New York Times, Charlie Savage has an article that begins, "Having been named a 'person of interest' in the investigation of the 2001 anthrax attacks, the former Army scientist Steven J. Hatfill has tried for six years to clear his name, both inside court and out. Now the disclosure that a former colleague died this week, apparently by suicide, just as investigators prepared to seek his indictment in the case has provided the clearest indication yet that Dr. Hatfill may finally achieve his goal."

"Court rejects appeal from teens' killer": The Houston Chronicle today contains an article that begins, "The Texas Court of Criminal Appeals has dealt capital killer Jose Medellin a major setback in his bid to escape the executioner's needle, throwing out his bid for a post-conviction writ of habeas corpus and his motion for a stay."

You can access yesterday's rulings of the Court of Criminal Appeals of Texas -- that State's highest court in criminal cases -- via this link.

"Judge Jerry E. Smith and the Origins of the Judge-Umpire Analogy": Ilya Somin has this post at "The Volokh Conspiracy." My own guess is that the analogy goes way, way, way, way back. In any event, it would be incorrect to say that no one goes to a baseball game to watch the umpiring.

Why Internet Explorer won't allow you to access many blogs: As explained in this post at "The Volokh Conspiracy," the problem is related to the use of the popular SiteMeter hit counter. I have removed that hit counter from this blog's front page pending resolution of the problem -- which is why you can now access this blog's home page using the IE browser -- but that hit counter likely still resides on nearly all of this blog's archived content, making that solution a limited one at best.
