Privacy Across the Pond

We’re fresh off a conference on how privacy laws in Europe affect life and business in the United States. So we tip our hat to the law firm that spotted this case about just that. The background is that one business had sued another in England and won. Then it had sued again here to collect on the Read More

California Just Says No to Medical Pot Prosecutions

Last week pit state law against federal law. This week, it’s state law versus local law in the cities or counties. Under state law, there is a defense to criminal prosecution for a medical-marijuana collective or dispensary that is run on a nonprofit basis for people who have state medical-marijuana cards or a physician’s recommendation.

Don’t Grow Pot on Federal Property

It may go without saying, but then ask these guys. In 2012, the three of them were growing pot east of Sacramento, California when local police served a search warrant for their property. They readily told police they were using the property to grow pot under state law, but it turned out their actual grow Read More

Make PAGA Great Again

Say what? PAGA refers to a California law that allows employees to sue their employer for labor-code violations on behalf of all fellow employees. It means one person can sue for all violations an employer has committed, even if they only affected other people, as long as at least one affected him or her personally. It’s Read More

Game On, Sports Gambling

No, the U.S. Supreme Court didn’t just legalize sports betting this week. But it did pave the way for your state to legalize it if it wants to. Before Monday, a federal law from 1992 barred any state from doing that. The only exceptions were Nevada, Oregon, Delaware, and Montana because their laws were grandfathered Read More

Iran Sanctions Look to Snap Back

By now you’ve heard the news, and it’s pretty much what it sounds like. Following a wind-down period of 90 or 180 days, the U.S. government will restore the economic sanctions that it lifted under the 2015 nuclear deal. These sanctions generally affect foreign businesses who do business with Iran. After the wind-down periods, they Read More

The Truth About Facebook

Ask this expert on data science what Congress should have asked Mark Zuckerberg last week, and she’ll say, nothing. If that surprises you, please understand that these hearings are not designed to deliver the truth. They’re designed to tell the public that, if there’s a problem, the government is doing something about it. So you’re not gonna Read More

The Microsoft-Ireland Case is Moot

We covered this before here and here. But the high-profile case of United States v. Microsoft Corporation is now over. The question was whether the government could force Microsoft to turn over data that it stored on servers in other countries. The problem was that federal law didn’t allow the government to do that, or at least Read More

A Tale of Two Memos for White-Collar Cases and Whistleblowers

In the past month, the U.S. Justice Department has released two memoranda that will affect civil enforcement generally and the False Claims Act specifically. The first memo confirms that DOJ will more actively dismiss the whistleblower cases it turns down rather than let them run their course. The memo follows a surprise announcement in October Read More

Happy 2018, California

Let’s celebrate because the new year marks the dawn of the state’s licensing program for commercial, recreational cannabis. It follows the voters’ approval of Proposition 64, the Adult Use of Marijuana Act, which we wrote about last year. But hold your horses, too, because it’s just the beginning. Earlier this month, the state launched its online application system, and two weeks Read More
