Detours and Frolics: Week of 2/9

It’s time to take your mind off the fact that the week’s just begun with legal news and curiosities!

  • Here’s a breakdown of the FCC’s proposed net neutrality rules (CNET)
  • The “secret mastermind” of the Silk Road was convicted of seven charges for his involvement with the site (Wired)
  • Adnan Syed, the subject of Serial, has been granted an appeal (NPR)
  • Follow up: the pro se litigant who was granted cert then disappeared has reappeared, and he wants the Supreme Court to reinstate the case after dismissing it for lack of a response. Also, he’s no longer a pro se litigant. His attorney is Paul Clement, a former solicitor general (WSJ Law Blog)
  • The estate of George Patton, who has been dead for 69 years, is suing a video game developer on grounds of false endorsement. Because, you know, people might think that General Patton endorsed a game that was made nearly seven decades after his death (techdirt)
