  • Awkward moment at the Hunter Biden Delaware gun trial – his wife screamed at a Trump adviser in the hallway, “You don’t belong here you Nazi piece of S” – only she didn’t say “S”. Plus, the GOP mantra in the Stormy Daniels trial was heard in Delaware: “But for his last name, these charges[...]
  • The hush money trial jury hit the ground running, immediately asking for testimony readbacks. If Trump’s convicted, his lawyers may say hey, prosecutors argued the public deserves to know the outcome before the election. Does that apply to an appeal as well?
  • The Stormy case will soon be in the jurors’ hands. Inquiring minds want to know: Was Michael Cohen so devastatingly bad on the stand he blew up the DA’s case? Why didn’t Trump testify? And you heard it here first: If the jury is hung, will the judge book a second trial before the November[...]
  • Should Ivy League Palestine protesters lose their fancy Wall Street jobs? And, will Biden and Trump really get together on the debate stage?
  • It’s an all “Guess the Verdict” episode, with one wacky lawsuit after another. May a city sue a professional clown for feeding expired parking meters? A guy wins five grand by sending a nude photo of his ex to an adult magazine’s “Girl Next Door” contest – is he in trouble?
  • Will Donald Trump welcome a jail sentence for contempt? Incarceration doesn’t sound enjoyable, but Trump’s campaign ad will write itself: Here I am behind bars courtesy of a Democrat judge and a Democrat DA, while Biden jets around, campaigning. And, will Michael Cohen survive cross-examination? Without a smoking gun document to help show Trump KNEW[...]
  • A Trump criminal trial is on. But, did the DA commit a huge blunder by getting the judge to let the DA use a laundry list of Trump sins, IF he takes the stand? The order may keep him from testifying, which may prevent his conviction. On the lighter side, Disneyland’s beloved “Goofy” has been[...]
  • Does Donald Trump have a secret weapon? If the jury splits the baby in the Stormy Daniels trial and finds him guilty of a misdemeanor, but acquits him on the felony charge, will he walk, since the statute of limitations on the lesser charge ran 4 years before the case was filed?  ALL BREAK TIMES: 13:58;[...]
  • Bernie Sanders wants Congress to give everybody a 4-day workweek – 32 hours of work, and 40 hours of pay! Claims he’s not trying to buy votes, he just wants folks to get more out of life. And, some want Congress to legalize the sale of human organs – should you be able to sell[...]
  • New York City’s voters rendered a verdict against Trump in 2020 – Biden 87%, Trump 12%. How will the 12 Manhattan jurors vote in the Stormy Daniels hush money criminal trial? The balloon lifts April 15.  
  • Shohei Ohtani is a 21st century superstar, but he’s making folks look backwards – think the movie “Damn Yankees,” and the 1919 Black Sox gambling scandal. Plus, Donald Trump had a wild week: His appeal bond was slashed by $300 million, but he has a rendezvous with the Stormy Daniels jury, on tax day. 
  • Jim Moret, Chief Correspondent of the TV show “Inside Edition,” shares his broadcasting story, including the highest and lowest moments of an amazing career, including a decade as a CNN anchor. Plus, I challenge Jim and Too Many Lawyers’ Executive Producer Christian Bladt to defend their favorite movie and song picks.
  • After two decades, Scott Peterson has convinced a judge to hold multiple hearings on whether he was framed for Laci’s murder. And, New Mexico prosecutors won a manslaughter conviction against the Rust movie set armorer. Will they really be able to convince a second jury that Alec Baldwin should be her cellmate? 
  • Should the Supreme Court be “dissolved”? All nine justices of the high court say Trump gets to stay on the Colorado ballot. Noted rocket scientist Keith Olberman – oh, sorry, he’s a progressive pundit – says that’s it, fire the Supreme Court. He claims even the three liberals have a “reading comprehension” problem.  
  • The Alabama Supreme Court relies on the Bible to say life begins at conception, so a guy who accidentally dropped a dish of frozen embryos may be sued, including for punitive damages. What are the legal and political implications of this ruling? Will the U.S. Supreme Court get involved to take the decision down a[...]
  • A gay woman sued the State of Missouri for wrongful firing, and during jury selection the judge excluded potential panelists who said their religion condemns homosexuality. And now, the US Supreme Court has upheld the judge’s ruling – over the objection of Justice Samuel. ALL BREAK TIMES: 13:58; 18:58; 34:59
  • A UCLA professor was asked to grade Black students more leniently because they were traumatized by events that gave rise to BLM protests. He said no, and UCLA said “you’re outa here, you are not on board with our approach to diversity, equity and inclusion.” He’s suing for $19 million. 
  • The first-ever conviction of a parent in a school shooting case is controversial: Was her son’s rampage really foreseeable? Or was the verdict intended to send a message to parents everywhere – control your kids, or you’ll wind up behind bars.
  • A wild week in court: Donald Trump is hit with an $83 million defamation verdict, in favor of a woman who didn’t report his assault for two decades, and couldn’t recall the year it happened. And the Alex Murdaugh conviction is in jeopardy – the judge’s court clerk tried to convince the jurors to vote[...]
  • A California judge decides a woman who stabbed her boyfriend 108 times, and was convicted of manslaughter, should serve no prison time. Why? She claimed the ganja did it – that “cannabis-induced psychosis” triggered the attack. The victim’s parents say great, it sounds like if you smoke dope, you have a license to kill.
  • Donald Trump wanted to deliver the closing argument in his New York fraud trial, but thought better of it when the judge said he’d slap the president with a $50,000 fine if he broke the “rules of final argument.” And, will the Atlanta DA going after Trump lose her job for hiring her boyfriend as[...]
  • The trans rights debate rages on – the U.S. boxing commission says it’s OK for guys who become women – after surgery, hormone treatments and lowered testosterone levels – to fight against the pugilists who were gals at birth. And, why has the Los Angeles DA barred his prosecutors from appearing at parole hearings? ALL BREAK[...]
  • “Undressing apps” promise to transform a picture of someone wearing clothing, into a realistic-looking nude photo. And the subject of a new “South Park” movie is a real-live controversy: Should schools have a right to fire teachers who supplement their modest income with immodest online performances? 
  • Guns are legal products and ads don’t encourage illegal conduct – so why some nuns in Nevada taking Smith & Wesson to court, claiming gun ads encourage violence? And, Colorado wants to become the first state in the nation to let fat folks sue for discrimination. 
  • The World Health Organization says 5 million lives a year are saved by childhood vaccines. But increasingly, American jurisdictions are letting parents say no to their kids’ shots, on religious grounds. Should the courts enforce mandatory vax rules? 
  • The Daily Wire’s new film, “Lady Ballers,” poses the question of what happens when some washed-up basketball teammates decide to identify as women (while on the court – it’s called gender fluid!) and kick lady athlete butt. So is it funny, or transphobic?
  • It sounds ridiculous but police say there’s no law against a convicted child molester setting up across the street from an elementary school with a sign saying, “FREE FENTANYL FOR FIRST TIME USERS.” Maybe there SHOULD be such a law.  
  • Oreo Cookie fanatics are fit to be tied – they claim the crème it is a-shrinkin’ – that Double Stuf cookies now have exactly the same amount of creamy goodness the regular size use to have. And a plaintiff’s lawyer who files three suits a week against allegedly lyin’ snack companies may be the cookie[...]
  • A nut case 31-year old woman, for no reason, beats up a 13-year old girl in a McDonald’s. Should the girl be able to sue the chain for not doing anything to stop the assault? Do bystanders have any duty to help or call for help – or may they just film away. 
  • Donald Trump had a HUUGE week in court – His kids testified in the new York civil fraud case – Trump himself is getting ready to take the stand next week. And some voters in Colorado have sued Trump, asking the judge to bar Trump from the presidential ballot in that state, on the ground[...]
  • Santa Fe prosecutors are the gang that can’t shoot straight. First they charge Baldwin under the wrong statute. Then they pick a trial lawyer who’s ineligible to handle the case. Now, they do a 180 and re-charge Baldwin. He’ll bat those blue eyes at the jury – say “I was told the gun was cold”[...]
  • The presidential election is like the films “Dr. Strangelove” and “Fail-Safe” – if just one bomber gets through Trump is sunk, folks won’t elect a felon. But if all four trials get pushed, it’s lights out for the Biden/Harris administration. So, the game is all about delay. 
  • WE’RE NOT JUST ABOUT PROVING WE HAVE “TOO MANY LAWYERS” – TURNS OUT WE HAVE WAY TOO MANY JUDGES AS WELL – THE SYSTEM IS ALLERGIC TO DISCIPLINING JURISTS FOR BIZARRE MISCONDUCT. ALL BREAK TIMES: 13:58; 18:58; 35:01; 40:52; 54:27; 59:28; 1:15:30
  • Gavin Newsom wasted no time – Senator Feinstein’s replacement was sworn in before the funeral. And, Los Angeles may force stores to accept not just credit cards and checks, but actual cash as well.
  • In lieu of actual apprehension and prosecution of criminals, California’s woke DAs and legislators have some sage advice: Don’t wear nice things, drive fast to deter carjackers, and lock your car when you pump gas. 
  • Do Judge Chutkan’s allegedly anti-Trump statements during the sentencing hearings for January 6defendants warrant her disqualification? And, does California’s Governor Gavin Newsom really believe Biden and Harris have given a “master class” in governance? 
  • The deliciously redundant Yogi Berra is a winner once more – it may be “déjà vu all over again” as the GOP ponders impeaching Biden. And, can Trump dump his D.C. federal judge on grounds of bias? 
  • The Biden-Harris administration is floating a trial balloon – is Gavin Newsom’s stealth campaign for the presidency a racist act, designed to cut the line in front of a woman of color? And, breaking news – Trump will testify if his criminal cases go to trial!  
  • With 19 Georgia defendants, Donald Trump may not be on the same page with others – some want a trial this year, some are OK with staying in state court. But Trump has a clear goal, and that’s to get the case away from the DA’s home court, by way of removal to the federal[...]
  • Was Trump smart to avoid the food fight that was the GOP debate? Will the 14th Amendment bar him from the presidency? And, how do you defend a judge who texts his clerk to say, “I just lost it. I shot my wife. I won’t be in tomorrow, I’ll be in custody”?
  • Is DA Fani Willis’ lead trial lawyer a stranger to criminal law? May Trump remove the Georgia indictment to federal court? And, why didn’t prosecutors charge Trump with “insurrection,” when a conviction would have barred a second presidential run? 
  • Trump’s attorneys are working overtime trying to figure out a way to get out of Dodge – that is, Washington, D.C. Will the lopsided 2020 vote by D.C. of 92% for Biden, 5% for Trump be enough? And, should California college professors be required to preach the gospel of wokeness to their students? 
  • Donald Trump may be re-thinking the whole “Deranged Lunatic” nickname for Jack Smith. Turns out one of the statutes Smith relies on has a death penalty clause – and at least one person died during the January 6 riots. Plus, will unindicted co-conspirators Rudy Giuliani and Professor John Eastman flip on Trump?
  • A funny thing happened on the way to the plea bargain – Hunter Biden’s lawyers and the feds couldn’t agree on its scope – so it’s off the table! Kevin Spacey is drinking a gin and tonic in London to celebrate his not guilty verdict. And California is forcing college professors to teach the virtues[...]
  • The Menendez brothers claim they shot their parents because of years of abuse – now, a member of the Menudo band says their allegations are true, it happened to him too. Will the brothers wind up free men? And, the betting is now that by Labor Day, Donald Trump will be facing four indictments. 
  • The woke Ninth Circuit has outdone itself. The homeless may now sleep and relieve themselves anywhere they want, if the number of homeless in a city exceeds the number of shelter beds – EVEN IF THERE ARE EMPTY BEDS BECAUSE THE HOMELESS DON’T WANT ‘EM.
  • The high court headed off to their summer vacation in dramatic fashion – no more affirmative action, no forgiveness of student loans, and no Sunday work for the postman who refused to deliver packages on his Sabbath. 
  • Should we beef up laws against “fatshaming”? And, why’d the Supreme Court make it harder to prosecute stalkers?  
  • Hunter Biden’s plea deal sounds like cruel and unusual punishment: No jail, but also no cocaine for two years! And, a jury says a double-killer was guilty of manslaughter not murder, cuz he was really drunk. Based on time served – four years, the same as a manslaughter sentence -- he was found guilty and[...]
  • In Trump’s Miami case you have two word views: The prosecution wants to move at the speed of light and hold the trial during next year’s campaign. Trump wants to slow things down and see what 2025 brings. How with the judge – appointed by Trump – handle this? 
  • Are child labor laws outmoded? Libertarians argue “Kids learn so much on the job.” Does Finland have the silver bullet to end homelessness? Over there, they give every unhoused person . . . a house! 
  • Not everybody considers Tik Tok bans to be a joke – it’s argued that because the Chinese government controls Tik Tok’s parent “Byte Dance,” countless facts about Americans are being funneled to Beijing, and soon China will do what it can to influence opinions in the U.S. 
  • OK, everybody agrees we have an epidemic of frivolous lawsuits – but what are the causes, and what can we do about it? Plus, the Supreme Court says gun control is permissible on grounds lawmakers have historically used to restrict gun rights. Does that make sense?
  • Florida’s leading the way in fighting back against frivolous lawsuits, that drive up prices and hijack people’s lives. We explore Governor Ron DeSantis’ plans, and why Donald Trump says “RINO Ron DeSanctimonious is delivering the biggest bailout in history to globalist insurance companies. 
  • Was it the fact Trump was a no-show for the trial? What caused the jury in the former president’s sexual assault trial to reject the claim he raped Jean Carroll, but accept the other allegations?
  • California may pass a law saying from here on, you may NOT buy cigarettes unless you were born before 2007 – meaning 16 year olds may buy now, but in 10 years, you gotta be 26, and in 20 years, you have to be 36 -- a slow-motion tobacco ban.. The Marlboro Man may go[...]
  • WHY DID NEW MEXICO PROSECUTORS DROP CHARGES AGAINST ALEC BALDWIN? WAS IT CELEBRITY JUSTICE? AND, WHY’D TUCKER/DON GET THE SAME NEWS WITHIN MINUTES OF EACH OTHER? 
  • Why did Rupert Murdoch reach into his jeans and pay Dominion nearly $800 million? And, will the Supreme Court go along with a Texas judge who wants to ban the use of abortion pills?
  • If you thought it couldn’t get any weirder, well, you’d be wrong. Alvin Bragg got intergalactic attention for indicting Donald Trump, but he also got subpoenaed by Republicans in Congress, who want to know the background of an allegedly biased prosecution. So now, Bragg has filed a suit against the Republicans.  
  • If Donald Trump goes on trial, we provide a look at exactly how he’ll explain every one of Alvin Bragg’s allegations. And we answer the burning question: Did Ivanka and Jared Kushner really skip the post-arraignment pep rally at Mar-A-Lago because they were celebrating Passover in Wyoming?
  • Our best episode ever!  Gwyneth Paltrow's on trial for cold-coking a guy on the ski slopes - why no settlement?  Why is Donald Trump waving a baseball bat at the New York City DA's head?  And most importantly, when will our sun explode and engulf the earth in flames?
  • The nation is all a-twitter, literally and figuratively, over the possibility of an indictment of a former president. Chris Rock says it’ll just make Trump more popular. Will Smith’s view is unknown. 
  • When a lawyer posts a racist tweet, should the State Bar Association yank her license to practice law?  And, is it leading with your strength to make the first (apparent) Donald Trump indictment ...all about Stormy Daniels?  
  • I’m off this week, so my son and co-host, Connor, handles the show solo. Now I don’t agree with him, but I think you’ll find his argument for defunding the police is the most powerful and thoughtful take on a (wrongheaded) idea you’ve ever heard! 
  • Trump was celebrating with the lady who served as foreperson of the Georgia Special Grand Jury looking into his possible election law violations came across as unhinged in a bunch of media interviews. Will this taint the effort to put the ex-president behind bars?
  • Is the Supreme Court about to blow up the Internet? The high court just held oral argument on whether liability of Internet providers should be expanded. 
  • Google has a date with destiny soon – or at least, a court date before the Supreme Court – on the question of whether it promoted radicalizing messages, leading to the murder of a woman killed in an Isis attack. 
  • The fellow Dick Cheney shot during a quail hunt just died, at 95 – 16 years after the incident. Will Cheney be charged with murder? Before you answer, remember when Reagan’s press secretary James Brady died 34 years after being shot by John Hinckley, prosecutors considered charging him.
  • Yes, there are doctor “vaccine deniers.” California and other states want to yank medical licenses from physicians who ignore the scientific consensus about COVID. And, could Alec Baldwin have avoided prosecution by simply taking the Fifth, instead of performing the role of “Chatty Kathy”?  
  • For months the DA who charged Alec Baldwin with manslaughter talked about nobody being above the law – she even mentioned him by name as a possible defendant. But since his duties as producer apparently had nothing to do with gun safety, and he was told the gun was cold – should he really have[...]
  • Nineteen states are on board with red flag laws, that let citizens -- worried about somebody misusing guns – seek a court hearing that could result in confiscation of weapons. Have the laws curbed mass shootings? 
  • 49 states have rules requiring lawyers to notify the State Bar if they learn OTHER attorneys are breaking rules. Should California make it unanimous, or is it a bad idea to give lawyers one more way to fight with their enemies?  Get your files
  • We take on a couple of villains to sort out whether bad stuff is also illegal stuff. George Santos won a seat in Congress by lying to voters. But is that a crime? And, Kanye West made it clear he hates Jews. In England he’d go to jail for that. Here in America, did he[...]
  • We celebrate year-end with a special edition of the podcast -- a half-hour of Connor guessing the outcome of the most bizarre lawsuits to ever clutter America’s legal system – like the DUI defense lawyer who, instead of viewing the video of his client’s arrest by popping it into a VCR, popped it into a[...]
  • The Weinstein jury threw everybody a curve. Hey he’s a pig and a monster, right? So take ten minutes and fill out the jury form “guilty”? Not so fast – after 10 days of deliberation, it was three counts guilty, three counts hung, and one count NOT guilty. So, he’s off to the appellate court[...]
  • OK the Supreme Court has spoken – you have a right to carry guns in public. But the justices agree there are exceptions to the rule. So where is it OK to pack heat? Schools? Hospitals? Parks? At the office? Lawmakers are drafting rules, and tossing in a few extras – like forcing gun owners[...]
  •    San Francisco is so fed up with crime they’re taking a very un-woke step: Police in the City by the Bay now have the option to send in killer robots, armed with bombs, to deal with mass shootings or suicide bombers. 
  • Is the Army combat vet who saved lives in the Colorado night club shooting in trouble, in spite of his heroism, for nearly killing the perp with the bad guy’s own gun? 
  • Ever wonder how much more Tina in accounting is making than you? California and a bunch of other states are forcing the boss to post everyone’s salaries in the lunch room – you know, to help stop pay discrimination. What can go wrong?   
  • Back in the day giant law firms, and their corporate mega-clients were conservative. But to please their employees, their customers and their clients, law firms and big companies are going woke. The result: Elite law firms won’t represent some corporate behemoths. Is anybody feeling sorry for the companies? 
  • Liberals hold out hope the Court will respect precedent, and save affirmative action. Let’s see, this is the Court that rejected the pro-choice position most Americans share – are they gonna have a problem dumping a policy most Americans oppose?
  • Over 90 women have accused fallen mogul Harvey Weinstein of rape and other sexual crimes. Twelve people have just been seated as jurors in his LA trial. Lucifer would have a better shot at being acquitted by a jury of a dozen evangelicals. So is Weinstein really getting a fair trial?  
  • Senator Lindsey Graham wonders, will the high court force him to testify against Trump? Of course, doesn’t SCOTUS owe him a solid? Remember it was Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg who gave two examples of outstanding women in the Senate: Dianne Feinstein and . . . Lindsey Graham. 
  • Connor’s off because I’ve got COVID. But celebrity trials never sleep: Will Harvey Weinstein pull off a double win, in New York and LA, and go free? Will Kevin Spacey be found liable in New York for sexual battery? 
  • After some sixty years of courts blessing affirmative action programs as legal tools to promote diversity, the Supreme Court on Halloween will hear arguments on a case that seeks to retire the concept. 
  • Should capital punishment fans just give up? A Texas DA says “it’s unethical.” An inmate with a fear of needles gets a reprieve from a lethal injection. And as for that three-drug cocktail, vets euthanize animals pain-free, but politicians think killing inmates “like animals” wouldn’t go over with the voters. 
  • California’s airwaves are inundated with dueling political ads. Some want the proposition expanding the types of gaming allowed at Indian casinos. Others want online betting to be permitted, no holds barred. So let’s cut to the chase: Unless you’re in love with a nanny state, why don’t we legalize all gambling? 
  • The Gavin Newsom/Ron DeSantis feud is heating up – the Florida governor shipped asylum-seekers to beautiful Martha’s Vineyard. Newsom called it “kidnapping,” but then somebody dug up the fact that as San Francisco mayor, Newsom put the homeless on Greyhound buses headed out of state.   
  • Has fat-shaming gotten out of hand? Some activists want you to refuse to let you doctor check your weight! And, the DOJ has a rule – no indictments close to an election if it’ll mean undue political influence. So is Trump off the hook till about Thanksgiving? 
  • Tired of politicians of all stripes lying through their teeth? It’s official: Bill Maher is the only politico who tells the unvarnished truth, routinely infuriating the right and the left. And, a group of Starbucks shareholders thinks the coffee giant’s diversity program amounts to illegal racial discrimination! 
  • The Kobe Bryant crash photo jury took just four hours to deliberate, ordering LA County to pay $31 million to the victims’ families. Was this another case of the coverup being worse than the crime? 
  • Believe it or not, somebody who spots you in Starbucks can deliver obscene messages to your iPhone. The California legislature says you can sue, but it’s not a crime. And, did the FBI’s Mar-A-Lago raid just re-elect Donald Trump? 
  • She doesn’t need the money, but Kobe Bryant’s widow is gunning for millions against first responders who shared photos of the horrific helicopter crash scene. And, should a judge have ordered a new trial after the lawyer for a doctor who beat a malpractice rap bragged that his client probably killed the patient?
  • This entire episode is devoted to Connor’s guesses as to the outcome of a dozen unbelievable court cases. What’s the penalty for letting your iguana drive? If your Cinnabun resembles Mother Teresa’s image, can you put it on T-shits and offer them for sale? 
  • Alex Jones and InfoWars get crushed in court. And, if you’re wearing a mini-skirt, you can forget about attending an execution in Alabama.
  • As the January 6 hearings roll into the fall, could Donald Trump face a third impeachment trial? If the DOJ passes on prosecuting him, will the Atlanta DA file charges? And Connor returns to face a trivia question: In what movie did Laura Linney play a sex worker? 
  • So Gavin Newsom, after spending $105,000 on Florida TV ads, says his interest in running for president is “less than sub-zero” – is there a special category of crime we can look into – “political perjury”? OK probably not. And, we’ve got the reason Donald Trump will never be indicted, for anything! 
  • It’s a post-Roe world – what happened, and what’s next?  Plus, a prayerful high school football coach scores a touchdown in the Supreme Court!  And, did SCOTUS just gut the Miranda rule? 
  • Who says bipartisanship is dead? On their last day on the job, SCOTUS makes the left happy by upholding Biden’s rejection of Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” plan, and delights the right by curbing the EPA’s ability to dream up creative ways to fight climate change.
  • While America waits for SCOTUS to rule on abortion, immigration and guns, the high court has just decided it’s legal for government to help pay for religious schools, if kids in rural areas don’t have access to public schools. And, is the DOJ getting ready to indict Donald Trump?
  • You may not be a big fan of insurers, but when a lady won $5 million after a guy gave her an STD during an amorous encounter in a car, does the fact GEICO insured the guy’s car mean the insurer has to pay the tab?  
  • According to British judges, Johnny Depp’s defamation claim was so lame they wouldn’t even listen to his appeal! The court found 12 of Amber Heard’s allegations were true. So, why did seven citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia order Amber to pay him $15 million?
  • The recent mass shootings have lit a fire under the idea of a national “red flag” law. If you think it’s dangerous for someone to have a gun, should you be able to file court petition asking the judge to confiscate their weapons? And Connor returns to the show – he talks about his battle[...]
  • You probably thought you’d heard about every racist thing on the planet, but it turns out there’s one more: The word “obesity” is racist. And, Dave Chappelle’s attacker has explained his assault. The attacker is bisexual, homeless and a single dad, and he says Dave’s jokes about those topics, sent him over the edge. 
  • You thought the “twinkie defense” was nutty? You ain’t heard nothin’ yet: The Buffalo shooter may blame COVID isolation for his deadly rampage. And, is Netflix in trouble for telling its employees to pound sand if they don’t like Dave Chappelle’s allegedly transphobic special? 
  • Who leaked the abortion ruling, and why? Was it a crime? Will it lead to justices changing their votes? Or NOT changing, to avoid looking like they’re caving to pressure? And, should Dave Chappelle’s alleged assailant be charged with a felony?  
  • A suspect being interrogated tells the cops, “I want to see a lawyer, dog” – and the court rules that wasn’t a clear request for an attorney. A college advertises to fill a faculty position, saying only women and transgender folks need apply. And, Joe Biden wants to ban menthol cigarettes. 
  • Celebrities are clashing in court – the undercard is Blac Chyna versus Rob Kardashian, and the main event: Johnny Depp versus Amber Heard. Plus, basketball legend Jerry West is hopping mad about “Winning Time” – the series about Magic Johnson and the Lakers.  
  • California Democrats are busy pushing a couple of reforms: Let’s make it mandatory to vote! And, let’s cap the work week at 32 hours – if you work more than that, you get time-and-a-half overtime pay! 
  • The NYPD used to employ robot dogs to defuse bombs. No more – the city fathers put them down, worrying they’d be too aggressive when dealing with low-income areas. And, a juror is excused from a trial, because she needs to pay a daily visit to her sugar daddy. 
  • A federal judge doesn’t mince words, he says Trump’s order to Pence was a “coup in search of a theory.” Will a Washington, DC grand jury indict the former president? And, California mulls over slavery reparation payments – should they go only to descendants of slaves, or all black citizens? 
  • Well Hollywood sure figured out a way to turbocharge interest in the Oscars telecast! Will criminal battery charges be filed against Will Smith? Is toxic masculinity to blame for him storming the stage? Would he have done the same thing if the guy telling the joke was, I don’t know, THE ROCK? 
  • Senate Republicans plan to challenge Judge Jackson’s Supreme Court nomination based on her tenure as a public defender. Will they look like carping racists, or will she look like we’re in for decades of soft-on-crime rulings? 
  • The judge in the Jussie Smollett false police report case threw the book at the actor, declaring him a perjurer – even though Jussie hasn’t been charged with perjury. And, the University of Alabama prohibits the pushing of elevator buttons using certain body parts. 
  • Ghislaine Maxwell's conviction is in jeopardy because jurors may have fudged about their personal histories. And, we launch a new feature: "Stories I'd Tell My Friends If I Had Any. To Clarify, I Have Several Stories.

  • Trump’s making waves by calling for massive demonstrations if he’s indicted. So “Make America Great Again” may be replaced with BLM’s slogan, “No justice, no peace.” And, Trump isn’t the only disgraced politician who’s planning a comeback: Andrew Cuomo may run for New York Attorney General. 
  • It’s not man bites dog, but it’s close: Mike Pence says Trump was flat wrong to push for an election re-do on January 6. Sarah Palin’s defamation case against the New York Times goes to trial. And, another year, another Michael Avenatti conviction. 
  • President Biden has a supreme court vacancy to fill, and he’s promised to appoint a black woman. So, is VP Kamala Harris on the short list? Moving her to the court would give Biden a chance to pick someone who might be more popular as a VP on the 2024 ticket, or as a possible[...]

  • California’s Governor Newsom rejects the parole board’s recommendation of freedom for Robert Kennedy’s killer Sirhan Sirhan. But did he do it cuz Newsom is SUCH a fan of RFK and if so – is that right? And, should a collegiate trans swimmer compare herself to Jackie Robinson? 
  • Prosecutors won a hard-fought conviction against Jeffrey Epstein’s friend Ghislaine Maxwell – but the win’s in jeopardy, as it appears two jurors lied on their questionnaires about whether they’d been victims of sex abuse themselves. And, the Nirvana “naked baby photo” lawsuit hits a snag. 
  • Ghislaine Maxwell gets bad news from the jury – but can she bargain for a lower sentence by giving authorities some VERY bad news for some of Jeffrey Epstein’s high-profile friends? An airborne Karen slaps and spits on an 80-year-old fellow passenger. Should she be grounded for life?
