SCOTUS is grappling with two Trump cases right now, neither of which they ever wanted anywhere near their "hallowed" chambers.  They want a way out of both the ballot access issue and Trump's weird, novel "Presidential Immunity" claim. This...
Let's talk Federal Sentencing Guidelines. It's not a catchy subject. And the guidelines themselves are complicated as hell even for lawyers. For us laypersons they are downright dense. Just coming up with the "stock" recommendation take serious work and...
