How Appealing

Friday, September 25, 2009

"Judge Orders Gmail Account Deactivated After Bank Screws Up": At's "Threat Level" blog, Kim Zetter has a post that begins, "A California federal judge has ordered Google to temporarily de-activate a Gmail account after a bank mistakenly sent sensitive data to the account."

And Online Media Daily reports that "Judge Orders Google To Deactivate User's Gmail Account."

I have posted online at this link the temporary restraining order that the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California issued in the case on Wednesday.

Today, however, Google and the bank filed a joint motion stating that the case is now moot and asking the federal district court to vacate the temporary restraining order so that Google could reactivate the email account in question.

"In Richmond court, Sept. 11 plotter seeks new trial": Frank Green of The Richmond Times-Dispatch has a news update that begins, "Lawyers for convicted Sept. 11 plotter Zacarias Moussaoui were back in a federal appeals court in Richmond again this morning trying to win a new trial."

And The Associated Press has a report headlined "Lawyer: Sept. 11 conspirator deserves new trial."

As I noted in this post from July 2009, a new appellate oral argument was necessitated by the retirement of former Fourth Circuit Chief Judge Karen J. Williams.

"Ginsburg released from hospital, back to work": Mark Sherman of The Associated Press has a report that begins, "Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who had cancer surgery earlier this year, planned a quick return to work Friday after feeling ill at the office and spending the night in a Washington hospital as a precaution."

In the current issue of The Harvard Law Record: The publication contains articles headlined "Souter looks beyond Supreme Court; Recently retired Supreme Court Justice looks ahead to future";

"222 years later, constitution scholars find little to celebrate in founding document; Constitution Day panel bemoans document's 'ossified', 'anachronistic', 'anti-democratic' principles";

"Solicitors General analyze Kagan's new role; Former Dean visits HLS on heels of first arguments as S.G."; and

"'I am Troy Davis': Georgia man fights for justice from death row; Supreme Court litigation yields examination of Georgia death row inmate's innocence."

The first two of these articles pertain to Harvard Law School's celebration of Constitution Day. The law school has posted online a related news release headlined "On Constitution Day, celebrating--and evaluating--our founding document; Feldman and Souter discuss models of judicial decision-making." You can view online the Feldman-Souter discussion by clicking here (beginning at the one hour and twenty minute mark, preceded by the discussion among constitutional scholars of that document's supposed flaws).

"Regulator on Fees: Hands Off, Courts; Fund-Industry Reforms Are Questioned." Today's edition of The Wall Street Journal contains an article that begins, "One of the top mutual-fund regulators said Thursday that he is concerned about courts having more say in whether fees are too high. With the Supreme Court due to hear arguments in a fund-fees case on Nov. 2, Securities and Exchange Commissioner Troy Paredes said that if a fee has been negotiated in 'good faith' between a fund's manager and its board, it would be wrong for judges to look for reasons why that fee is too high."
