Emojis create problems for courts to punish criminals


Between 2004 and 2019, there was an exponential rise in emoji and emoticon references in US court opinions, with over 30 percent of all cases appearing in 2018, according to Santa Clara University law professor Eric Goldman, who has been tracking all of the references to “emoji” and “emoticon” that show up in US court opinions.

In murder cases, emoji could be found in threats that took place between the defendant and the victim, and they serve as evidence that suggests the defendant’s state of mind or whether they had a propensity to commit the crime. “That can happen in criminal law, but it can happen in contract law as well. There’s a bunch of chatter that takes place before a contract is actually formed,” he says.

But emoji are a critical part of communication, and in cases where transcripts of online communication are being read to the jury, they need to be characterized as well instead of being skipped over. “You could imagin... Show more...

Two articles on the Notorious RBG

  • #### Ruth Bader Ginsburg Returns To Supreme Court Bench After Lung Cancer Surgery
As luck would have it, after the January arguments, the court had scheduled a month-long "writing break," allowing Ginsburg extra time to recuperate from home. Last Friday, Ginsburg returned to the Supreme Court building for the first time in order to participate in the justices' private conference, the first such conference scheduled since mid-January.

Doctors at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center operated on Ginsburg Dec. 21, removing one of the five lobes of her lungs. Days later she returned to Washington, D.C., to recuperate. Doctors reported that the pathology report on her lung found no further evidence of disease and they said no further treatment is planned.

Indeed, Washington legal circles are rife with rumors these days that Justice Clarence Thomas, the court

16 states going to challenge Trump's naitonal emergency declaration


"We're suing President Drumpf to stop him from unilaterally robbing taxpayer funds lawfully set aside by Congress for the people of our states. For most of us, the office of the presidency is not a place for theatre," California Attorney General Xavier Becerra said.

The states - all of them but Maryland governed by Democrats - say the lawsuit aims to protect their residents, natural resources and economic interests. They argue that Mr Drumpf's order to divert funds would cost them millions of dollars.

Still, they will need some more states to effectively sue him. 16 out of 50 states are not many, only 32 percent.

Experts say the largest number of illegal migrants settling in the US each year is those who stay in the country after their visas expire. And most of drugs being trafficked into the US enter the country through ports of entry.

the Illinois Supreme Court ruled unanimously that when companies collect biometric data like fingerprints or face prints without informed opt-in consent, they can be sued. Users don't need to prove an injury like identity fraud or physical harm—just losing control of one’s biometric privacy is injury enough.

Donnie urged to end shutdown before Jan. 11


Individual courts and judges will then decide how to fulfill those critical functions, said David Sellers, a spokesman for U.S. Courts. He pointed to earlier shutdowns, the longest of which was the 21-day furlough that started in December 1995 and ended in January 1996. A shutdown beyond Jan. 11 would break that record.

According to Donnie, this record will be broken by far. I really hope that they are going to reopen it before, I don't want to imagine a country that has no judiciary system working at all. I mean, a flawed one such as this is already bad, but none at all... That would be disastrous.

One of the biggest pending cases is the Federal Trade Commission’s anti-monopoly lawsuit against Qualcomm Inc., set for a non-jury trial starting Jan. 4. U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh, known for her tight schedules and firm deadlines, appears committed to completing the trial by Jan. 28, and the FTC said it is expected to proceed.
