    [–] Difference between shareholder, partner, and director? johnrich1080 2 points ago in LawSchool

    It's going to depend on the firm and the state but generally yes. Some firms will have shareholders or partners and "director" refers to someone in charge of a practice group. (like the "real estate director") While some other firms use "director" the way other firms use partner. Just depends on how the firm is set up.

    [–] Difference between shareholder, partner, and director? johnrich1080 1 points ago in LawSchool

    The firm I worked at over the summer was a PC and "director" is what the "partners" were called. So the firm had like 100 directors and 40 some associates. (and a handful of "of counsel")

    Yeah, because Europe has done such a good job of protecting Poland in the past.

    Not always. In my state it’s a classification below the actual crime. So filing a false report (in my state) is a class 1 misdemeanor so conspiracy to commit filing a false report would be a class 2 misdemeanor. IDK how it works in Illinois though.

    In lots of jurisdictions they can remove the defendant and hold the hearing/trial without him. It’s seen as the defendant voluntarily leaving.

    Going to a law school in the city you want to practice in. I’ve made a ton of contacts in a city I don’t want to live in.

    or any healthy constitutional tradition—for Presidents to declare emergencies when they can’t get what they want through the political process.

    Can someone help me find his blog post when he wrote against Obama using executive orders to circumvent the political process on gun control and DACA? I can’t seem to find them.

    Yeah, a 4,000 square foot condo is going to be expensive as fuck. My house is less than half that size.

    You're getting downvoted but as a former handler I agree 100%. We looked at it and concluded that any dog with a temperament that allows him not to do something crazy when you start firing probably isn't worth his salt when it comes time to apprehend a bad guy.

    [–] Is law review worth it? johnrich1080 2 points ago in LawSchool

    Short term pain for long term gain. It can make your 2L year hell but if you manage your time and take a lighter load of classes the semester you plan to write most of your note it’s not that bad. Well worth the doors it opens

    [–] Jeff Bezos photos threat 'absolutely not extortion,' AMI lawyer says johnrich1080 1 points ago in law

    No reputable news agency, when they have something of public importance, offers to bury the story for value.

    Lol, that’s hilarious. Take it from somebody who was in law enforcement, “reputable news agencies” engage in all sorts of shady shit when it comes to what stories get published and which don’t (or get buried on page 14). That scene in the looming tower where they tell John O’Neil that the NYT is going to print the story about his missing brief case and he says “well kill the story!” That’s no exaggeration, that stuff happens all the time. Trust me, it would blow your mind the kinds of stories of “public interest” that never make it to print because of an expensive dinner, a game of golf at a high end course, or just calling in some favors.

    [–] Texas highway Patrol Gun Boat johnrich1080 2 points ago in policeporn

    Unfortunately, because of the time that has passed and the amount of news articles about the border I can't find a very detailed account. I read a pretty good article about the incident in a law enforcement magazine shortly after it happened that detailed the incident a little better and included interviews of officers and agents that were there. All I could find is this NBC article that references the incident

    [–] Texas highway Patrol Gun Boat johnrich1080 21 points ago in policeporn

    The Mexican military (and their equipment) has been used to protect drug smugglers along the river. Border Patrol had an incident about 10 years ago where they were chasing a dump truck loaded with weed back towards Mexico when it got stuck trying to cross back. A Mexican military Humvee with a mounted 50 cal pulled up and provided cover while cartel members unloaded the dump truck. There was nothing BP could do but sit there and watch it happen.
