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 »

Lawsuit Arising From The Firing Of A Bottle Rocket From A Guy’s …


By: John Meslrow

Yeah, firing a bottle rocket out of your butt is never a good idea. And it’s even worse if it fails to launch! From the recently filed West Virginia case of Helmburg v. The Alpha Tau Omega Fraternity and Travis Hughes:

Defendant Hughes was highly intoxicated … and decided in his drunken stupor that it would be a good idea to shoot a bottle rocket out of his anus on the ATO deck …

Plaintiff and his girlfriend were also present on the ATO deck.

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 »

Have gun, won’t travel: Which states won’t honor your Alabama pistol permit


By: Casey Toner

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 »

Ex-Virginia Governor Tells Jurors He and Wife Separated


By: Peter Galuszka and Andrew Zajac

Robert McDonnell, the former Virginia governor on trial for corruption, said he no longer lives with his wife, reinforcing his claim the couple had grown increasingly estranged and didn’t conspire to use state resources to help a businessman in exchange for benefits.

McDonnell testified yesterday that he moved out of his home just before the trial and now is staying at the rectory of a Catholic priest who is a friend.

In his second day of testimony, McDonnell said he “can’t face going to court every day and mulling it all over again.”

McDonnell, a former rising star in the Republican party once seen as a possible presidential contender for 2016, faces with his wife, Maureen, an ex-Washington Redskins cheerleader, a 14-count indictment that includes charges of conspiracy, honest-services fraud and making false statements.

Missouri Governor Orders Troops to Begin Leaving Ferguson


By: Elizabeth Campbell and Brian Chappatta

Governor Jay Nixon directed the Missouri National Guard to begin leaving a St. Louissuburb where violence has ebbed after more than a week of protests following the fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer.

Nixon, a 58-year-old Democrat, called in the troops Aug. 18 after organized groups of protesters with firearms and gasoline bombs attacked police, and officers in riot gear unleashed tear gas in the streets. Violence has since subsided, police said.

“As we continue to see improvement, I have ordered the Missouri National Guard to begin a systematic process of withdrawing from the City of Ferguson,” Nixon said yesterday in a statement. Read the rest of this entry »

Die in this state and your heirs get your online accounts


By: Blake Ellis

When people die, it often means the end of their online identity as well.

But this month, Delaware became the first state to pass a broad law giving heirs the right to access online accounts and digital assets of someone who has passed away.

Under the new law, which went into effect last week, the executor of the estate has access to their “digital assets such as email, cloud storage, social media accounts, health records, content licenses, databases and more,” according to a statement from the Delaware House Democrats.

By: Emily Flitter

U.S. federal prosecutors have learned that lawyers for General Motors Co were present at key meetings during which information about problems with some of its vehicles were discussed, a source close to the investigation said.

The prosecutors from the U.S. Department of Justice have asked how lawyers attending those meetings participated in them and what they did afterward with the information that was shared during the meetings, the source said.

General Motors had issued a report in June which detailed how for 11 years it turned a blind eye to an ignition-switch problem linked to at least 13 deaths but largely pinned the blame on what the report described as incompetent lower-level employees, leaving top brass untouched.
