Frederick M. Lawrence

For any one of these aspects of the life of Louis Brandeis -- lawyer, scholar, justice -- we would remember him today as a figure of insight, brilliance, creativity, and moral courage. The combination renders him an extraordinary figure in the practice of law, legal scholarship, judicial craftsmanship and jurisprudence, and civic activism on both a national and international scale.

Chris Marvin | Posted 12.11.2016 | Impact

The number of veterans on death row is disproportionate to their presence in the general population -- but the fact is that veterans are underrepresented on death row. That seemed more like it.

This is Wolf Blitzer in the Situation Room. And we have BREAKING NEWS. Three more Republican congressmen have said the Benghazi investigation is a sham created just to bring down Hillary Clinton. Live with reaction is Reince Priebus, chairman of the Republican National Committee.

Religious Freedom Restoration Act Is No Way to Govern

Byron Williams | Posted 02.02.2016 | Queer Voices
Byron Williams

Though legal, the Religious Freedom Restoration Act violates Thomas Aquinas' "just law" theory. Is this not a law inconsistent with moral law? Does it uplift human potential? How is the Religious Freedom Restoration Act not a slippery slope that leads to the tyranny of the majority?

Joel Cohen | Posted 02.01.2015 | Crime
Joel Cohen

There is no question that there are many troubling concerns about the Ferguson presentation. Should McCulloch have disqualified himself from the case? Did the presentation go on for far too long? Did McCulloch at his controversial press conference treat Wilson as his client rather than a target of the grand jury's investigation?

Everyone's taking about the Supreme Court's perfectly predictable "Citizens United 2" McCutcheon decision. It's what we are not talking about that worries me.

Now Who Is the Real "Narcissist"? Edward Snowden or the NSA?

Joseph A. Palermo | Posted 01.23.2014 | Media
Joseph A. Palermo

It's only a matter of time until the NSA capability begins targeting the left in this country, if it has not already. J. Edgar Hoover and Richard Helms did it in the 1960s and 1970s. There are no real safeguards in place that would prevent it from happening again.

Ironically, a number of elite journalists have emerged as among Snowden's harshest detractors and of the brand of investigative journalism practiced, for example, by Glenn Greenwald. But this week Jeffrey Toobin appeared to be positioning himself as the leader of that particular pack.

Although the two new justices in the mid-2000s did not change the 5-4 conservative majority on the court, they forged a different kind of conservative majority. Toobin and I discussed his books and the current state of the Supreme Court earlier this week by email.
