    Stewart Baker has this post at Volokh Conspiracy, "HIPAA is an arguably well-intentioned privacy law that seems to yield nothing but 'unintended' consequences."  I'm not quite as cynical on HIPAA as Stewart, and I wouldn't have said "arguably" or put "unintended" in quotes.  He is right that the law has had numerous bad consequences, though, including this gem from the Daytona Beach News-Journal:In the name of patient privacy, a Daytona Beach, Fla., nursing home said it couldn't cooperate with police investigating allegations of a possible rape against one of its residents.

Chappell, his absurd decision that delay in the review of capital cases is a reason to change a death sentence to life imprisonment.Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 54(b) permits a judge to enter final judgment on one claim while other claims remain pending "if the court expressly determines that there is no just reason for delay," which this judgment does.This final judgment is appealable under 28 U.S.C. § 1291.  See, e.g., Brown v.

  • Surrounded by cops, 15-year-old was ‘detained,’ so search was invalid, court says

    Bob Egelko
    25 Jul 2014 | 6:46 pm
    When police in Daly City asked 15-year-old J.G. if they could search his backpack after a casual encounter, they said he consented voluntarily. What they found inside, a Smith & Wesson semiautomatic pistol, was enough to convict the youth of felony weapons possession and send him to Juvenile Hall. But a state appeals court took a closer look at the encounter Friday and said the circumstances showed that J.G. was actually in detention, with officers surrounding him and no reason to think he was free to resist the search or just walk away. That means the search was illegal and the gun was…

    This is a post from the meshDETECT Blog - A Texas Tribune investigation has found that few inmates or correctional officers face legal consequences for smuggling cellphones even as prison officials have intensified efforts to keep the devices out of prisons. Just 5 percent of cellphone smuggling cases investigated by the Criminal Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General from 2009 to 2013 resulted in a criminal sentence, according to documents obtained from the office through a public information request. Some notable excerpts from the article: In 2003, legislators made smuggling the…

    The smear campaign has already began, while NY police and their union officials covertly and deliberately try to tarnish and negatively impact the character of 43-year-old Eric Garner who died during a confrontation with cops in Staten Island. All in an attempt to overshadow what the whole entire world has seen, cops choking a black man to death and allowing him to lay on the ground unassisted for nearly eight minutes until he died. If you listen to the police’ version, Garner is depicted as a scumbag criminal who resisted arrest, and was responsible for causing his own death. His…

The first ones are going to be released in November 2015. Old policies that were sending drug offenders away for nonviolent crimes are being abolished, which is part of a criminal justice reform plan that is getting a good deal of bipartisan support in…

Brown along with 42 others were netted in a child porn sting that spanned two continents and perpetrators from every walk of life.

    A true cornerstone of my childhood experience was sharing urban legends. Some of my fondest memories involve hot summer evenings spent with my friends, sitting around in a circle at the edge of my driveway, and exchanging various horrific stories that may or may not have been true. These stories were often handed down from older brothers, sisters, or cousins, and no matter who was telling the story, they always made sure to include that they knew a person involved, as to add credence to their tale.  Over time I grew older, and many of these stories became long forgotten or written off as…

    Cannibalism has had a long, sordid history.  In our western culture it is practically unheard of, except in cases of severe famine – like the tragic experience of the Donner Party. Other cultures – such as the Korowai, participate in cannibalism as part of their religious sacraments. It is not often that we hear of someone eating another human being, and even rarer that we hear of a person volunteering to be eaten. Before you continue reading, consider yourself warned. The story of Armin Meiwes, referred to by some as “The Real-Life Hannibal Lecter”, is not for the squeamish. To…
