National security flip-flop: Obama to retreat on KSM/Gitmo detainee civilian trials…for now 5.3.2010 Michelle Malkin
I want to take you back to November 13, 2009, less than four short months ago. That was the day corruptocrat Attorney General Eric Holder announced he was bringing 9/11 jihadi mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohamed and other Gitmo detainees to NYC for civilian trials. As I noted the day the news broke, it was a Friday. [...]

A little way on libel reform | Simon Singh 4.3.2010 Guardian: Comment is Free
Jack Straw's cutting of lawyers' bonus fees is welcome, but the public interest demands greater protection from wealthy litigants Everyone supporting the libel reform campaign let out a little cheer this week when justice secretary Jack Straw announced he was going reduce no-win-no-fee bonuses from 100% to 10% . The costs of libel, like the law of libel itself, is an absurdly complicated matter – I have a PhD in particle physics and trying to understand either leaves me with a terrible headache – but the bottom line is that Jack Straw has effectively halved the potential cost of defending a libel case. This is good news, because the Ministry of Justice has taken a clear step towards reforming England's libel laws, which are generally ...

Idaho Debates Justice in “Lawless” Indian Country 4.3.2010 MyDD
1 in 3 American Indian women will be raped at some point in their lifetime, twice the national average. In Idaho, if state lawmakers don't pass a bill before them now, the problem will get worse before it gets better. In 1978, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in Oliphant v. Suquamish Indian Tribe that sovereign Indian nations do not have criminal jurisdiction over non-Natives traveling or even living in Indian Country. For a variety of nonsensical and unprecedented legal reasons, Tribal police and courts only have authority over other Indians. This is akin to telling the Montana State Police that the law doesn"t apply to Minnesota residents passing through on I-90. Except for a few "Public Law 280" states, state and local ...

New Patent Law Ruling Could Cost You Big Bucks 3.3.2010 Inc
Got a patent, or have you labelled your product "patent pending" before you've actually put the application in the mail? A recent court ruling on false marking could make you liable for some big bucks – and anyone (not just a competitor) can file a lawsuit. Patents, of course, stop competitors from stealing your ideas, and if you don't mark them on your products, you're limited in the amount of damages you can recover. But if you stamp your baby wrongly in an attempt to head off competition, you may find yourself on shaky legal ground; a December court decision seriously has raised the stakes.  On December 28, 2009, the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals held in the case of Forest Group Inc. v. Bon Tool Co. that patent owners and ...

Genuine American Exceptionalism on Due Process 3.3.2010 Common Dreams: Views
by Glenn Greenwald

The Obama administration has made explicitly clear its intention to deny civilian trials to scores of detainees, by sending some to military commissions and imprisoning others indefinitely without any charges.  And for those cases where it has deigned to provide real due process -- such as its decision to try the 9/11 defendants in a cri
