At the Blog of Legal Times (subscription or registration required), Tony Mauro reports on recent comments by retired Justice John Paul Stevens, who compared “some Guantánamo Bay prisoners to Japanese-Americans who were detained during World War II” and “is urging Congress to pay reparations for their time in confinement.”
At the blog of the National Conference of State Legislatures, Lisa Soronen analyzes last week’s decision in Williams-Yulee v. Florida Bar, in which the Court upheld a Florida rule that prohibits candidates for judgeships from personally soliciting campaign contributions.
