    Niels Frenzen was quoted about laws governing drowning incidents involving migrants. Under international law, if any of the ships involved in the disaster were flagged or registered in Egypt, as large fishing trawlers like the Abu Nawal are, then Cairo had a clear mandate and possibly even an obligation to investigate the disaster, according to Frenzen.

    Daria Roithmayr was quoted about the application of the hate crime statute when considering graffiti at an art gallery that features the medium. “Hate crime statutes have to be applied to activities that are directed at particular people because of the people’s race/disability/gender, etc., said Roithmayr. “It’s not an easy conclusion that the hate crimes statute would apply to graffiti on an art gallery where the graffiti refers to the art. It’s not clear if it’s art that’s produced by white artists, or consumed by white patrons — none of that’s clear.”

    Daria Roithmayr's op-ed was published on why President-elect Donald Trump did not win over Rust Belt voters, but instead, Democrats failed to bring them out to the polls. "The party should spend its energy figuring out why Democrats lost millions of voters to some other candidate or to abstention," she said. Roithmayr suggests pollsters should find out why voters stayed home instead of trying to appeal to working class white male voters.

    Edward McCaffery wrote an op-ed about President-elect Donald Trump's tax proposals and statements made by his treasury secretary nominee, Steve Mnuchin. Although Mnuchin stated there will be no "absolute" tax cuts for the wealthy, McCaffery argues there are ways to achieve that while still benefiting the billionaire class."Will the math work? It is too early to tell, but there is plenty of reason to be skeptical, to think the rich will still come out ahead when all the devilish details get made into law," said McCaffery.

    Scott Bice was quoted on how there are no ethical conflicts for judges who are paid to perform wedding ceremonies outside of normal working hours. Bice said he doesn't see an ethical issue because the judges are performing the service outside normal working hours. Still, he said he doesn't have much sympathy for the judges, who earn more than $191,000 a year. They should donate their time, he said. "They get paid a good compensation," Bice said. "... They are charging for overtime, and what the Legislature has said is, 'You get enough salary; be a good citizen.'"

"Depending how this plays out, it's going to be even more significant given the change in administration," said Frenzen. "It's either going to facilitate the Trump administration with increasing its immigration enforcement, or it might place some limits on the Trump administration's plans."

    David Cruz was interviewed about the lack of constitutional support for President-elect Donald Trump's Twitter statements about flag burning and revoking citizenship. He said the U.S. Supreme Court is unlikely to overturn existing precedent on these issues. "First of all, he would probably need an act of Congress and wouldn't be able to unilaterally do it. So, he would have to try to convince majorities of both the Senate and the House that they should disregard what is pretty settled law," said Cruz.

Lefcoe said the decision will require agents to be more careful and may create more paperwork, but the industry will continue to allow such arrangements because a brokerage can collect a commission from both parties. “It’s too lucrative,” he said.

"I'm all for this kind of politics of identity once we recognize that all politics is identity politics in a sense when we stand for the red white and blue, what does that stand for? Before the Civil War it stood for slavery. Before the Civil Rights movement that red, white and blue stood for segregation and now the red, white and blue stands for something much more inclusive.

    Niels Frenzen was interviewed about the possible implications for sanctuary cities that ignore President-elect Donald Trump's immigration policies. Rounding up and deporting millions of undocumented persons would require expanding the reach of immigration enforcement agents. Frenzen says it could happen, because it’s happened before. “Back in the late 80s, early 90s, we had on average one major immigration raid of a factory or workplace or park per week. There was not a focus on immigrants having contact with the criminal justice system, there was a focus on workplace enforcement. That is something that could be replicated today,” Frenzen explains.

    Daria Roithmayr was quoted about the possible implications for women's rights and abortion rights when Donald Trump nominates justices to the Supreme Court. "At the very least, his appointments to the federal bench (judges at the trial and appeal courts) are likely to permit states to impose burdens on a woman's right to choose at the margins." That includes waiting periods, information disclosure requirements, and hospital infrastructure requirements for clinics. "That's happened already to some extent," Roithmayr said, "but I expect to see more of his judges permit more of those kinds of interference with women's reproductive rights."

Pastore is among the counsel for the defendants, who argued that traffic courts must give people a meaningful opportunity to prove their inability to pay, and if they have not done so, it is illegal for the DMV to carry out the court's request for a license suspension. "License suspension is intended as a tool to compel payment from scofflaws — those who can pay but do not," said Pastore. "Instead, the DMV and the California courts are using it as punishment for poverty. This is both terrible public policy and a violation of law." The Associated Press also covered the story.

Why settle for a yard sign when you can signal your support for a candidate to the entire world? The campaigns have tapped into that last point.

    Edward Kleinbard wrote an op-ed on Apple's tax agreement with Ireland and how it represented unfair competitive practices as part of the European Union. "On one hand, we have Apple and its allies in the US Treasury furiously applying their spin to the European Commission’s “state aid” ruling against the company. On the other, we have the fact that the underlying issues are complex, falling at the juncture of two legal areas — competition law and tax — that rarely come into contact. Put these facts together and the result is widespread misunderstanding. It is time to puncture two myths in particular that have gained currency," he wrote.

That building is full of people Roger has helped, and stood by when they faced problems. He had stood by me every time.”

    USC Gould School of Law was mentioned as one of the filed complaints towards the suspension of drivers licenses. "Los Angeles Superior Court does not assess defendants' ability to pay fines for traffic infractions and therefore violates the due process rights of low-income defendants, according to a complaint filed by the Western Center on Law and Poverty and USC Gould School of Law. The lawsuit comes as the Commission on the Future of California's Court System is considering policy changes regarding fines, including possibly creating a sliding scale payment system or ability-to-pay assessments for traffic infraction fines. The commission is also considering eliminating add-on charges to fines and improving transparency of the fee system.

Traffic tickets in California now routinely cost hundreds of dollars because of fees tacked on to support the courts. The law allows courts to refer those who don’t pay their tickets to DMV for license suspension, but only if the nonpayment was willful. In violation of law, LA Superior Court refers people who can’t pay tickets to DMV without any inquiry into willfulness. Not only is this terrible public policy (because without a driver’s license, many people lose their jobs and any ability to ever pay these exorbitant fines), it is illegal under state law and the due process clause of the constitution".
