Last quote by Eugene Volokh

There is political pressure on campus and also pressure from administrators' natural desire to avoid hassle for themselves. They say, If we let the speakers speak, then the consequences will be all these students protesting and then there will be a riot and bad publicity.' And I think what ADF is saying is if you don't let this speaker speak, there's going to be a lawsuit – and bad publicity from a lawsuit.feedback

Here’s a message from Claremont McKenna President Hiram Chodosh, about the incident I blogged about Friday.feedback

So an Indiana judicial ethics commission opined in an opinion that was posted on Westlaw.feedback

The government has much broader authority over the speech of probationers than it does over ordinary citizens; but even probation conditions are subject to some scrutiny.feedback

Last week, I blogged about the criminal portions of Mark A. Lemley’s and my new article, “Law, Virtual Reality, and Augmented Reality, ” which the University of Pennsylvania Law Review has just accepted for publication. (Click on the link to see the whole article, including footnotes.) This week, I’m turning to our discussion of tort liability and shifting now from liability for users to liability for providers.feedback

That’s what European Union executive branch leader Jean-Claude Juncker said he’d do, if Trump continues to urges other European countries to echo Brexit. Because we all know how swayed Americans will be by EU politicians telling them whether or not to secede. Or is this that famous absurdist Luxembourg humor?feedback

Ken Haas is a member of a New Britain (Conn.) city commission, the Commission on Conversation, appointed by Mayor Erin Stewart. Several months ago, he got into a public controversy with local activist Robert Berriault - allegedly, when someone got in a Facebook political spat with Haas, he responded by writing, “You do know I have access to ALL city records, including criminal and civil, right???” Berriault took that to be a threat that Haas would misuse that access for political purposes and wrote about this on the New Britain Independent site, as well as in a not-much-noticed change.org petition calling for Haas’s removal. (Since then, Berriault has announced his candidacy for the New Britain city council.).feedback

I’ve blogged before about people getting injunctions against alleged libelers, aimed solely at getting Google to deindex the allegedly libelous page. The injunctions aren’t gotten with any expectation of the alleged libeler voluntarily complying, or of the alleged libeler being forced by the court to comply. Rather, Google has a policy that it will often remove pages from its indexes once it sees an injunction finding the pages to be libelous; and that’s what the plaintiff wants.feedback

Businesses are generally free to charge lower prices for cash transactions than for credit card transactions; but some states bar businesses from labeling this as “$10, with a 30-cent surcharge for credit cards, ” though businesses are free to say “$10.30, with a 30-cent discount for cash.”.feedback

A New York Times headline from March 16 reads, “Amid ‘Trump Effect’ fear, 40% of colleges see dip in foreign applicants.” And the story’s opening paragraphs echo this; the first three mention a specific incident aimed to illustrate this, and then the article goes on to say.feedback

You might think it’s something you’d see shown on the cover of a romance novel set in the early 1800s, but it’s actually a crime defined to cover, see Fowler v. State (Conn. 1811).feedback

For Part 3 of this series drawing on excerpts from my new book, “Sex and the Constitution, ” I thought a bit of history on the concept of obscenity might be fun.feedback

Texas, like many other states, has an “anti-SLAPP statute” - a statute (Tex. Civ. Prac & Remedies Code § 27.001-.011) that provides for expedited review of many lawsuits - such as libel claims - based on the defendant’s speech, and prompt disposal of the lawsuits if they are found to be legally meritless. It also provides for prompt appellate review and for attorney fees to be paid by prevailing defendants.feedback

I’m blogging excerpts this week and next week from a new article by Mark Lemley and me, “Law, Virtual Reality, and Augmented Reality.” (Click on the link to see the whole article, including footnotes.) This post is from the criminal law part; we begin with disturbing the peace, but soon we’ll tell you about indecent exposure, strobing, virtual groping and more.feedback

Stanford law professor Mark A. Lemley and I have just finished a draft of a new article, “Law, Virtual Reality, and Augmented Reality.” It’s still early days in the development of commercial VR and AR, and even more so in the law of each. But we think that the shape of the technology is clear enough to speculate about the legal issues that are likely to arise. Plus, selfishly, we’d like to get in on the ground floor of something that’s going to be big - and we’re sure that VR and AR will indeed be big.feedback

Last month, a 9th Circuit panel concluded that President Trump’s immigration executive order was likely unconstitutional. The administration withdrew that order, and substituted another, which is now being challenged; but the panel decision remained on the books, as binding law within the 9th Circuit. Some judges’ call for en banc rehearing (i.e., rehearing by 11 of the 9th Circuit’s judges, rather than the original three) also remained pending.feedback

From New York Assembly Bill 5323, introduced by Assemblyman David I. Weprin and (as Senate Bill 4561 by state Sen. Tony Avella), a bill aimed at securing a “right to be forgotten”.feedback

Back in October of last year, Paul Alan Levy (Public Citizen) and I wrote about various libel cases brought against defendants who seemed not to exist. One might ask: How can one get real money from a fake defendant or order a fake defendant to do real things? It turns out the point was seemingly to get an injunction that would then be submitted to Google (or, in one instance, to Yelp): Google and similar companies have a policy of removing or deindexing material once a court has found it to be defamatory, so all that’s necessary is to have an apparently real defendant, who would then purportedly stipulate to the entry of a real injunction.feedback

Yes, you read that right. Here’s Utah SB118, which passed both houses of the legislature unanimously and is awaiting the governor’s signature.feedback

Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson’s including slaves in the category of immigrants has caused controversy today.feedback

In today’s Leonard v. Texas, Justice Clarence Thomas sharply criticizes civil forfeiture laws. The one-justice opinion discusses the Supreme Court’s refusing to hear the case (a result Thomas agrees with, for procedural reasons mentioned in the last paragraph); but Thomas is sending a signal, I think, that at least one justice - and maybe more - will be sympathetic to such arguments in future cases.feedback

He seemed very calm, measured, thoughtful, polite, gentlemanly – very much like what one notices about him now.feedback

Thursday, the Florida Supreme Court upheld the state’s general ban on openly carrying guns. The lead opinion acknowledged that an outright ban on carrying guns would seriously burden the right to bear arms “The core of the constitutional right to bear arms for self-defense, ” the court concluded, includes carrying “firearms in public where a need for self-defense exists.” “‘To confine the right to be armed to the home is to divorce the Second Amendment from the right of self-defense described in Heller and McDonald.’” (I call this “the lead opinion” rather than “the majority” because it seemed to have gotten only three votes out of the six justices who participated. One justice concurred in the result without joining the lead opinion or writing a separate opinion, so we don’t know his reasoning; two justices dissented.).feedback

Florida generally makes it fairly easy for law-abiding adults to get licenses to carry concealed guns — indeed, it is often seen as the state that started the modern concealed-carry revolution, in which the country flipped from roughly 10 states where concealed carrying was generally allowed (with a broadly available license, or in Vermont even without one) to roughly 40 states where such carrying is allowed. But Florida largely bans open carry; you can have arms to defend yourself in public, but you can’t wear them openly.feedback

Glenn Reynolds (Instapundit) writes at USA Today, citing Randy Barnett’s post on Neil Gorsuch and originalism.feedback

So much depends on the particular statement and the particular context surrounding that statement.feedback

FDR was known to have pioneered these fireside chats, and Trump is now doing fireside tweets.feedback

As a legal matter, Facebook is not required to be even-handed. Congress can't introduce something that tries to prohibit Facebook from making these kinds of choices.feedback
