A BROTHER'S MOTION, JUDGE WAPNER AND DIRTBAGS

State v. Yarbrough: A brother's motion for reconsideration

A 2L Yalie, Chris Muha, is looking for help with a motion for reconsideration in State v. Yarbrough. Earlier this month, the Ohio Supreme Court overturned both a murder conviction and a death sentence for Terrell Yarbrough for the 1999 murders of two college students.

Why? And why is Chris Muha involved? The Volokh Conspiracy's Orin Kerr has the story here.

Following up on State of Washington v. Oliver C. Christensen -- as discussed here in "If only Mom would stick to searching my room"-- Michael Cernovich weighs in.

His conclusion:

"Boyfriend is a dirt bag, but the Washington law protects his privacy. If you don't like it, write the legislature: Tell them to change the law.  But don't ask the Washington Supreme Court to reach an activist result."
