Ep. 178: THANKSGIVING SPECIAL - Stuffed With Weird Legal News

The Thanksgiving holiday might look a little different this year, but one thing that remains the same is our annual break for a special episode looking back at our favorite offbeat stories of the year. We revisit an attorney whose Second Circuit argument went sideways; a Kentucky state judge accused of having a threesome in the courthouse; a real-life request for trial by combat in family court; a former major league pitcher who confronted a naked man on LSD in his front yard; and a look at some of the best Yelp reviews of the Supreme Court cafeteria.

Ep. 177: When A Trial Becomes A Superspreader Event

Amid skyrocketing numbers of COVID-19 infections, a jury trial in Texas ended in a mistrial this week after at least 15 participants tested positive for the illness. On this week’s show, we’re breaking down the ill-fated trial in Texas, plus the slew of other courts that are shutting down during the third wave of the pandemic. Also this week: the law firm Sanford Heisler is best known for filing discrimination cases against BigLaw giants, but the firm is now facing allegations of bias from its own employees. We’re joined by Law360 reporter Anna Sanders, who broke the Sanford story. And finally, a federal court ruling that says the Trump administration cannot cite the pandemic as a reason to expel migrant children.

Ep. 176: All The President’s Lawsuits

President Trump has filed a slew of lawsuits aimed at challenging his election loss to President-elect Joe Biden, but the cases are supported by little evidence and don’t contest enough votes to change the outcome. This week, we’re going through those questionable lawsuits one by one, as well as the public relations backlash brewing for law firms like Jones Day that represent the president. Also this week, an audio-breakdown of the hotly-anticipated Supreme Court arguments over the fate of Obamacare.

Ep. 175: Voters Speak On Cannabis And The Gig Economy

All eyes have been on the presidential vote count, but a lot more was put to voters in the 2020 election. This week, we break down some key ballot measures including a win for gig economy companies in California, the spread of cannabis legalization, and more. We’ll also discuss a ruling in New York that puts an end to Amazon workers’ calls for more COVID protections from the retail giant; a legal malpractice lawsuit against Seyfarth Shaw; and a new, not so catchy jingle from the famed injury attorney Ross Cellino.

Ep. 174: Supreme Court ‘Packing,’ Explained

The confirmation of Amy Coney Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court just days before an election has sparked calls from Democrats for serious changes to the high court. What might those reforms look like? Is it fair to call them “court packing?” On this week’s show, Law360’s Supreme Court reporter Jimmy Hoover joins us to break it all down, from the contentious backstory to a range of possible proposals. Also on this week’s show: A federal judge says government lawyers can’t represent President Trump in a private defamation suit; a North Carolina judge issues a first-ever ruling on how business insurance covers COVID-19; and the bizarre story of a BigLaw attorney who allegedly went on a bank robbery spree in Florida.

Ep. 173: United States v. Google

The U.S. Department of Justice filed a sweeping antitrust lawsuit against Google this week, accusing the tech giant of maintaining an illegal monopoly over internet search and online advertising. The case came amid a broader reckoning with the power of Big Tech, and it evoked historical comparisons to the famous Microsoft case of the late 1990s. Joining us to breakdown all these issues and more is Matt Perlman, Law360’s senior reporter on the competition beat. Also this week: A slew of major rulings on pandemic-era voting rules; and a multi-billion dollar fine against one of the key drivers of the opioid epidemic.

Ep. 172: The Shirtless Judge Who Shoved A Cop

A New York judge named Mark Grisanti is under fire after body camera footage obtained by Law360 showed him shoving a police officer and invoking his powerful connections following a shirtless brawl with neighbors. With Grisanti never charged with a crime, the video has sparked a broader conversation about whether Grisanti’s race and job led to lenient treatment. On this week’s show we’re breaking down the whole story, plus: A drugmaker racing for a COVID-19 vaccine vows not to sue for patent infringement; BigLaw giant Sidley Austin agrees to diversity its summer associates after a federal probe; and The Bachelorette returns with a new crop of lawyer-contestants.

Ep. 171: The Road Ahead For Amy Coney Barrett

Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett heads to Capitol Hill next week for confirmation hearings that figure to touch on hot-button points like abortion, healthcare and gun rights. Adding even more intrigue are the COVID-19 cluster that has ensnared two key Republican senators and the fast-tracking of Barrett’s nomination ahead of the November election. Joining us to break down the confirmation saga from every angle is Andrew Kragie, Law360’s congressional reporter. Also this week, Justice Clarence Thomas took aim the high court’s landmark gay marriage ruling; the justices heard Google and Oracle's high-stakes battle over smartphone copyrights; and a crucial update on the cultural refinement of the opinions issued by the U.S. Court of International Trade.

Ep. 170: Drug Rehab or Forced Labor?

A growing number of courts are sending those accused of drug offenses and nonviolent crimes to addiction treatment rather than jail, but some residents are now claiming that the only treatment being offered at those facilities is forced, unpaid labor at for-profit businesses. Joining us to discuss this little-known side of the justice system is Jack Karp, who wrote a deep-dive about the practice and the growing litigation challenging it. Also this week: A ruling blocking President Trump’s TikTok ban; criminal charges over a deadly COVID-19 outbreak at a nursing home; and some scathing reviews of the lunch cafeteria at the U.S. Supreme Court.
