Detours and Frolics: Week of 2/1

Welcome to Detours and Frolics. We have some decent news on relatively grim topics this week (aside from the Arizona thing, which is this week’s outlier):

  • The Supreme Court ruled that the ban on mandatory life-without-parole sentences for juvenile offenders applies retroactively (The Atlantic)
  • Arizona wants out of the Ninth Circuit (Office of the Arizona Governor)
  • After last week’s note on Texas, Hawaii has joined the group of states that has determined that daily fantasy sports are illegal under state law (Deadspin)
  • The founder of Bikram yoga, Bikram Chowdhury, must pay over $900,000 to a former employee over claims of sexual harassment and wrongful termination (LA Times)
  • The “affluenza teen” is back from Mexico and residing in a juvenile detention facility for the time being (NPR)
