We broke down the new law in detail here, and we weighed its pros and cons here. The law was supposed to go into effect this October, but opponents have since Read More

Prosecutors Endorse Pell Grants for Prisoners

On Thursday, the nation’s largest organization for prosecutors endorsed an idea we touched on a few weeks ago. Let people in prison apply for federal grants toward higher education.

A Feel-Good Story From Our Backyard

Earlier this month, a group of law students from the University of California, Irvine did something special: they won the release of an elderly inmate based on the law of compassionate release.

Tribute to a Courtroom Legend

“Some people walk the walk,” my wife said to me this morning.

HHS Reduces HIPAA’s Maximum Fines

Last month, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services said it would no longer apply the same maximum fines to all HIPAA violations regardless of fault or blameworthiness.

Two Billion-Dollar Healthcare Prosecutions in One Month

Last month, the U.S. Justice Department reported two healthcare prosecutions for billion-dollar frauds. In the first, federal prosecutors in Florida won what they’ve called the biggest healthcare-fraud conviction ever.
