Dear Readers,Just a week over 50 years ago today, the United States Supreme Court issued one of its most enduring keystone free speech decisions, New York Times v. Sullivan. The very foundation of our right to a free press stands in ironic relief of what is currently going on in Crimea today, as Russian Press outlets have stamped out any dissent in Crimea. Historically, news reporting was a "propaganda rag" reflecting the political whims of owners and publishers. The "Federalist Papers" were, i...

Dear Readers,The drumbeat to alter our national drug policy is growing. The Justice Department, with the approval of an iconoclast like Sen. Rand Paul, continues to seek lower penalties for some drug convictions, to slow incarceration rates for low-level "mules" and drug dealers. At the state level, the movement to liberalize our approach to marijuana continues apace. Georgia, for example, is considering approving marijuana use for medicinal purposes. But, there is a broader trend, deeper and m...

Dear Readers,Our world keeps shrinking. We communicate instantly with people halfway around the world, using chat apps and IM to learn about life "over there." Revolutions are fueled by ubiquitous communication, as (other than in North Korea) tyrants are essentially impotent to stem the tide of knowledge. There is, however, a seedy side to our smaller world. As our ability to communicate expands, so do the tools of spying.We know this from the WikiLeaks controversy, as we (and world leaders) le...

Dear Readers,There is a myth burned into the psyche of anyone other than a family attorney – father's don't win custody battles. Thisis just not the case. In fact, I'd venture to guess, at least in my practice, fathers stand better than a 50/50 chance of winning a custody fight. This might be a matter of self-selection. What I mean by this is that maybe dads don't take marginal cases to a final hearing. Regardless, a dad being awarded custody of his kids is far from a rare event. Yet, everyone ...

Dear Readers, This is our last look at small snap-shot of the struggle between government and issues of life and death. This week, we look at how medicine creates some thorny legal issues. Marlise Munoz and her family certainly know how medicine can complicate choosing to end a life with dignity . . . at great financial expense to the rest of us. Hence, one end of this complicated dance between death and the law is who pays for extending the life of the terminally ill.Specialists all over the ...
