Forward through the Darkness, Forward into Light

This month marks the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, which enshrines these words: “The right of citizens of the United States to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the United States or by any State on account of sex.” That’s kind of a big deal. If you can think of a more Read More

What is Juneteenth?

I’ll admit I didn’t know. I hadn’t heard of it until a couple years ago, and when I did, I thought it was something newfangled. It wasn’t that I didn’t care. I just didn’t know. So I read up on it, and now I do. Juneteenth is a combination of the words, “June” and “nineteenth.” Read More

If Only

There are other things besides the law, after all. For seven years, we’ve published this blog on a regular schedule, but after losing a close friend to cancer last week, we’re taking a break again this week and perhaps longer. We’ll be back soon to cover civil and criminal litigation in the 21st century—in your Read More

Qui Pro Domina Justitia Sequitur

Did you know? This year marks the 150th anniversary of the U.S. Justice Department, which Congress created in 1870. If you’d like to learn more, the Department has created a special webpage to commemorate the occasion. It includes a timeline that traces the agency’s beginnings in 1789 to its modern founding in 1870 and through the present Read More

Greatness

This blog is not about basketball, but if you know me then you know that I love the Lakers, and I loved Kobe Bryant just as much. His untimely passing last week, along with that of his daughter and eight other people, is still a shock to the system for me and millions of other Read More

An Impending Point of No Return

A prominent federal court of appeals has dismissed a lawsuit that aimed to compel the government to respond to climate change more urgently. It’s an interesting case. Essentially, the plaintiffs wanted an injunction that ordered the government to phase out emissions from fossil fuels and reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Or to come up with a Read More

And Then There Were Six

On Wednesday, the longest-serving justice of the California Supreme Court announced that he would retire this summer. It’s a big deal for a court that seats only seven. Ming Chin, the state’s first Chinese-American justice, will hang up his robe after nearly twenty-five years on the high court. Before that, he served on the trial court Read More

Thanksgiving 2019

This year, among other things, I’m grateful to live in a country where one group, party, or faction doesn’t wield a monopoly on power. Where power, in fact, ultimately belongs to no one but the republic itself. I was born in Iran, and for the last two weeks, the government there has waged a vicious Read More

The Judiciary Act of 1789

No one gets it right all the time, and that includes courts. But 230 years ago today, an act of Congress created the country’s federal courts, and that’s worth celebrating. You may not know this, but the only court required by the Constitution was the Supreme Court. It left the rest to Congress. Here’s what Read More

My 9/11 Memory

Do you remember where you were? I was 22 years old, and I was at a small fitness center in the apartment complex we lived in. It was early, and I was the only one in there. I got on the treadmill, wearing earphones, listening to music, and absent-mindedly looking at a TV that was Read More
