Re: It was the wrong thread

I'm struggling to think of when it would be appropriate to start a sentence with "[my client] instructed me not to comply with the court's order . . . "

If the client waives privilege then there's no problem. And if the lawyer said, you've got to let me tell the court this or I will have to withdraw, then I bet he'd OK it.

11 judge en banc opinion by the 9th on the Alien Tort Act. 170 pages. Seven (maybe) opinions. Adder, will you tell me what it means?

He probably had a good lawyer.

Seatbelt charges against Pope Benedict XVI dropped

BERLIN — Pope Benedict XVI can cross an outstanding charge of failing to use a seatbelt from his list of worries.

The southern German city of Freiburg on Wednesday (Nov. 30) threw out charges against the pontiff for riding in his popemobile without a seatbelt during a September visit.

“There will be no fine for the pope,” city spokeswoman Edith Lamersdorf, told the daily Badische Zeitung. “The charges were quashed.”

In 2002, declassified "Richard Nixon tapes" confirmed remarks made by Graham to President Nixon three decades earlier. Captured on the tapes, Graham agreed with Nixon that Jews control the American media, calling it a "stranglehold" during a 1972 conversation with Nixon.[48] His remarks were characterized as anti-Semitic by Abraham Foxman of the Anti-Defamation League[23] and evangelical author Richard Land.[49] When the tapes became public, Graham apologized.[50][51] According to Newsweek magazine, "[T]he shock of the revelation was magnified because of Graham's longtime support of Israel and his refusal to join in calls for conversion of the Jews."[

Not quite Minnesota nice

How not to respond to a judge's threats of sanctions for your previous insult-laden filing.

Sometime a good offense might not be the best defense

Re: It was the wrong thread

School district pays $10K for its counsel to observe and report on 89 hours' worth of the criminal trial of its Superintendent; reporter making $65K drops her hankie in shock and dismay

I must say for a convicted public servant he's got good taste in eyewear.
