Thanks to the Man in Black,we’re shedding some light on finding articles

This day in history, it was lights out for the Man in Black; music legend Johnny Cash died September 12, 2003.
 
Mr. Cash, of course, was no stranger to the law. He kept lawyers busy with arrests for drug smuggling, setting a forest on fire, and more. Through his legal adventures, he developed compassion for prisoners, performing free concerts in prisons and advocating for prison reform.
 
While learning a little about Mr. Cash, we found a nifty journal article titled: “Social Justice and Social Context in the Music of Johnny Cash”  (2009 J. Inst. Just. Int’l Stud. 53), which is available on Westlaw and HeinOnline.

Super Bowl Sunday Legal Fun!

This Sunday, the New England Patriots and the New York Giants will face off in Super Bowl XLVI in Indianapolis. In honor of the event, we thought we’d look at some of the legal issues, past and present, surrounding this annual clash of the titans.

The incident is still being discussed in the courts; it came up last month at the Supreme Court hearing FCC v. Fox Television Stations, Inc. (read the transcript of this amusing discussion here or listen to audio … Continue Reading
