Lawyer Quits Her Job for Instagram

Trillions of dollars later it might be appropriate to  ask when the war on terrorism would ever end?

I have planned a trip to visit the Bush library in Dallas to view the book he read.


Hackers just release photo taken from my medical examination  last week.


A law graduate has revealed her new career direction as she swapped the courtroom for the glamorous world of Instagram .
But there's more to Pia Muehlenbeck's enterprise than seeking likes online, as the young businesswomen has launched her own sportswear range.
Based in Australia, Pia's luxury SLINKII label promises to be "a sportswear label like no other".
And to promote it, Pia is also a market editor for Grazia magazine.

The German native wrote on her blog Finding the Finer : "To think that just over a year ago, I was starting out on the path to work as a lawyer! What a ride!"

Alexandria Dispute Raises Question of “Spite Fence” Liability

by jonathanturley
220px-brick_wall_close-up_viewIn my torts class, we discuss "spite fence" cases where neighbors change structures that are maliciously erected to block sunlight or views. An interesting case has arisen not far from my home in the nearby Del Rey area of Alexandria. Owner-architect Gaver Nichols has objected to garage construction that will block both light and air for Paul and Patrice Linehan’s kitchen's window -- leaving a view much like this one to enjoy. There appears to have been bad blood between the neighbors. What is particularly interesting is that Nichols designed, built and sold the Linehans’ house to them in the mid-1990s.

Sandra Bland Family's Settlement Calls for Statewide Campaign for Cell Sensors

Texas jails might become safer places for inmates as part of Sandra Bland's legacy and as a conclusion to her family's lawsuit.
Waller County, the Texas Department of Public Safety and the family of Bland, who authorities have said killed herself in a county jail three days after a state trooper arrested her for not using a turn signal, have reached a tentative settlement, according to the family's lawyer, Thomas Rhodes of San Antonio, and the county's lawyer, Larry Simmons of Houston's Germer.
The settlement calls for DPS to pay the Bland family $100,000 and the county to pay $1.8 million, according to Rhodes.
Bland's family also sought and received commitments from DPS that the agency would institute deescalation training for incoming and current officers, Rhodes said.
"I know the governor had to sign off on that," said Rhodes, referencing Gov. Greg Abbott.
In addition, Waller County officials agreed to begin providing a nurse or emergency medical technician at its jail 24/7 and to install electronic sensors in each cell that will record automatically and digitally verifiably when a inmate's condition has been checked on by jail staff.
Statewide, the Waller County officials agreed to help the Bland family puruse at the Texas legislature's next session a proposed bill, which is expected to be named for Sandra Bland, that calls for such sensors in all Texas county jails.
For his part, Simmons stressed that the terms of the settlement remain confidential at this time because of the tentativeness of the pact.
" The parties are still working through a few details," Simmons said in a written statement.
Simmons also noted that any tentative settlement must be approved by the Waller County Commissioners Court.
He also said the parties had agreed to keep the settlement terms confidential until it was finalized.
He stressed, however, that no county funds would be issued other than a "modest $1,000" insurance policy deductible and that the county had acknowledged no wrongdoing.
Bland's death drew international attention and raised questions about the criminal justice system in southern Texas.
It also prompted her mother, Geneva Reed-Veal, to file last year the civil rights lawsuit in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Texas.
