Appeals court strikes down immigrant licenses law challenge

NEW YORK (AP) — An appeals court dealt another blow Monday to a lawsuit seeking to nullify a New York law allowing immigrants without legal documents to seek driver’s licenses.

The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a Rochester federal judge’s decision to dismiss a lawsuit by Republican Erie County Clerk Michael Kearns.

The lawsuit last year tried to label New York state’s Green Light Law unconstitutional. The law, which took effect last December, prevents federal immigration and customs authorities from accessing the state’s Department of Motor Vehicles databases without a court order.

Supporters said licenses help immigrants work, transport their family and apply for college and housing while opponents said licenses shouldn’t be given to people who violate federal immigration rules.

Like the lower court, the 2nd Circuit said Kearns lacked standing to sue over the issue.

It said that since Kearns lacks authority to implement nondisclosure aspects

Ga. Judge Rips Law Firm’s Atty Fees Bid In Insurance Row

Law360 (November 30, 2020, 7:53 PM EST) — A Georgia federal judge on Monday criticized a Kansas law firm’s attempt to collect almost $400,000 in attorney fees from an insurance company following a settlement in an underlying jail construction dispute, questioning the timing of the case.

U.S. District Judge Mark H. Cohen said the firm, Ron D. Beal PA, sat for years and did nothing to try to get $378,662 in attorney fees from Connecticut-based Hartford Fire Insurance Co., a subsidiary of The Hartford. Then the firm venue-shopped for its contract breach claim and chose Georgia solely because of its applicable six-year statute of limitations, he said during a…

South Florida lawmaker again files ‘Jaime’s Law’ to require background checks for bullet sales

A state lawmaker filed a bill on Monday that would require background checks for ammunition buyers, after the same bill failed in committee in the 2020 legislative session.

Known as “Jaime’s Law,” the proposal honors Jaime Guttenberg, one of the 17 people killed in the 2018 Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School massacre.

State Rep. Dan Daley, D-Coral Springs, and a Stoneman Douglas graduate, first filed the bill in the 2020 legislative session. It never made it to the House floor.

“Our hope this year is to get a hearing,” he said. “Last year, it never saw the light of day.”

The proposal would apply to all sales of ammunition if it becomes law and would close what gun control advocates refer to as

Supreme Court Sceptical About Law That Could Have a Chilling Effect On Security Research

The Supreme Court on Monday expressed scepticism about the sweeping nature of the 1986 Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, claiming that the cybercrime law — the only one of its kind in the United States — could lead to a slippery slope where average Americans are criminalized for innocuous transgressions like checking Facebook at work.

The reexamination of the law comes during arguments for a case involving a Georgia police officer convicted of violating the Act after he accessed a licence plate database in during an attempt to obtain information on a strip club dancer in what lawyers argued was an improper manner. Lawyers for the officer, Nathan Van Buren, say that he had not violated the CFAA and had, in fact, had legitimate access to the database through the course of his work.

The case — the first significant challenge to the scope of the CFAA to reach the

Supreme Court hears case on hacking law and its limits

02-use-instagram-on-your-desktop-hack

Under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, browsing Instagram from a work computer could be considered a federal crime, lawyers argued before the Supreme Court on Monday.


Sarah Tew/CNET

For the first time, the US Supreme Court on Monday heard arguments surrounding a 34-year-old law on computer hacking — examining how the terms of the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act mean everyday activities like browsing Instagram on a work computer could be interpreted as a federal crime. 

The law, passed in 1986, sets the framework for what’s considered illegal hacking — with a broad scope noting that any person who “knowingly accessed a computer without authorization or exceeding authorized access” violates the restrictions. 

Under that interpretation, sharing a Netflix password or lying about your height on a dating

Some new attorneys delay buying a home or a new car. Others reluctantly postpone marriage and having children while altering the career plans they had going into law school.

These are among the personal and professional sacrifices young lawyers often make due to their sizable student loan debt, according to a survey conducted this spring by the ABA’s Young Lawyers Division and the ABA Media Relations and Strategic Communications Division. Many survey respondents also provided open-ended comments indicating their student loans have contributed to mental health issues, including anxiety and depression.
