Marijuana Law Mayhem Splits U.S. as Travelers Get Busted

By: Andrew Harris

America is two nations when it comes to marijuana: in one it’s legal, in the other it’s not. The result is that people like B.J. Patel are going to jail.

The 34-year-old Arizona man may face a decade in prison and deportation following an arrest in 2012. On a trip in a rented U-Haul to move his uncle from California to Ohio, he brought along some marijuana, which is legal for medicinal use in his home state.

Headed eastbound on I-44 through Oklahoma, Patel was stopped for failing to signal by Rogers County Deputy Quint Tucker, just outside Tulsa. He was about to get off with a warning when Tucker spotted a medical marijuana card in his open wallet. Read the rest of this entry »

ScholarImage_color

By: Alyssa Gjedsted

Section 1782 of the United States Code, Chapter 28, provides in relevant part: “The district court of the district in which a person resides or is found may order him to give his testimony or statement or to produce a document or other thing for use in a proceeding in a foreign or international tribunal…” The statute is the primary means by which the United States provides assistance to foreign and international tribunals by allowing for discovery requests and necessary evidence for litigation. While the statute is praised for its broad application and liberal assistance, confusion about crucial aspects of its framework have created circuit splits, often making its application more difficult than beneficial.

Two prosecutors disciplined for criticizing jurors on Facebook

By: Victor Li

Two Minnesota prosecutors are in hot water after posting derogatory messages about jurors on Facebook.

According to the Brainerd Dispatch and KFGO-790 in Fargo, North Dakota, the two prosecuting attorneys for the Clay County Attorney’s Office have been disciplined. KFGO-790 reports that the remarks were made in reference to a jury that had recently acquitted a defendant accused of sexual misconduct. Prosecutor Pam Harris had posted on her Facebook page that she was “spending her week with 12 idiots,” prompting prosecutor Jenny Samarzja to post: “A shining moment for Clay County! Wake up people!” (Harris also made reference to Helen Gamble, the prosecutor played by Lara Flynn Boyle on ABC’s The Practice—presumably for the episode in which she goes off on jurors after an acquittal and calls them “too stupid to get out of jury duty.”) Read the rest of this entry »

that Hickey told Kirkland that she “needed to get laid”; that Hickey told Kirkland to “blow me”; that Hickey asked Kirkland out on a date, which she rejected, the most benign of Hickey’s acts; that Hickey called Kirkland a “fat pig”; that he placed his hand inside of Kirkland’s blouse; that he asked Kirkland about the color of her bra and whether it matched her panties; that he pulled up Kirkland’s dress; that he pulled his pants down and exposed his buttocks to Kirkland; that he put his hand all the way up Kirkland’s dress; and that he waved a vibrator at Kirkland and other women.

Wild boars, hungry alligators, poisonous snakes, and armed drifters.

These are some of the dangers William J. Gillerlain faced working on the railroad.

A freight conductor for CSX Corporation, Gillerlain carried a Smith & Wesson .40 caliber handgun when he traveled by train from Mobile to New Orleans, La.

“Most people that work the railroad probably have a gun with them,” he said.

The 59-year-old Mobile resident sold his gun when he retired four or five years ago, but he recently reapplied for a new concealed-carry permit in case he needs it. Read the rest of this entry »
