Detours and Frolics: Week of 9/8

Another week, another round up of legal news and items of interest:

  • The DC Circuit will rehear en banc the case on the legality of health insurance subsidies  (SCOTUSblog)
  • A federal judge determined that BP was 67% responsible for Deepwater Horizon, may be fined up to $18 billion. I don’t care who you are, that’s gotta hurt (NYT)
  • In civil rights violation, a teenager in South Carolina was not allowed to wear the makeup that he usually does in his driver’s license photo because the DMV clerk determined he wouldn’t look “like a boy should” (CNN)
  • The EU’s highest court defined parody in a case involving an offensive calendar (WSJ Law Blog)
  • I’d think this goes without saying, but wear socks to court, especially if you’re an attorney. Though if oblivious lawyers are going to get us more captions like In re Proper Courtroom Attire, maybe they’re not so bad (Lowering the Bar)
