(I care very little about college basketball, except for the annual Gonzaga bet. But anyone who ticks off the NCAA gets points in my book.)
“No. Really. I didn’t realize the women at those orgies were hookers. I thought they were socialites.”
Both Lawrence and I are still trying to sort out the implications of this, but I believe it is huge.
…Defendants are ENJOINED from enforcing these provisions.
Perhaps one of my readers who has something more than an Internet GED in law can comment: does this injunction against enforcing the ban on interstate handgun sales apply only in the district in which the ruling was issued? Or does it apply nationwide unless a higher court voids the injunction?
Edited to add: It looks like David Hardy over at Of Arms and the Law has the same question.
…if he enforced it in Maine or in Washington, he’d have violated the injunction, and could be held in contempt by the Texas court.
I would pay money to see that.
Hey, remember when Ray Nagin was convicted of corruption and sent to prison for 14 years? Good times, good times. Anyway, Frank Fradella, the granite countertops guy, is going to do one year in the federal pen for his part in Nagin’s downfall.
The Covington businessman pleaded guilty to stock fraud and bribery charges in 2012, and became a key witness in Nagin’s trial two years later. Fradella testified that he steered a $50,000 payment to Nagin in hopes of winning city contracts, and gave a free shipment of granite to a countertop business owned by Nagin’s sons.
Fradella is getting off light because he rolled on Nagin.
