Extra-clickworthy links to the latest legal news!

How about some light reading and watching for your Friday afternoon?

Do you like the “Happy” song?  You know:  “Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof!” [Chorus: “because I’m happy . . .”]  Well, apparently there’s a law firm just brimming with happy lawyers and they’ve videotaped themselves getting down to the Happy song.  You can watch them boogie here.  On Point’s pretty sure public defenders have a better sense of rhythm!

That sneaky SCOTUS.  Did you know that SCOTUS surreptitiously changes its opinions long after it issues them?  Adam Liptak of the New York Times wrote about it here.  The edits aren’t trivial.  Just as interesting, a techie lawyer figured out a way to detect and tweet those changes so you don’t have to do side-by-side comparisons of the original decision and the one you might be reading years later.  Read about it here.  Anybody know whether SCOW surreptitiously edits opinions?

SCOTUS v. Rappers.  Who has a bigger vocabulary?  Find out here.  Then ask yourself who makes more sense?!

Is forensic science really “science”?  Okay, we have to have one serious link.  Find out how under-trained lab workers are handling your client’s DNA here.  It won’t leave you singing the “Happy” song that’s for sure.
