OA129: “Don’t Talk To The Police”

Should you take legal advice from a viral video on YouTube?

Today’s episode is all about judges, lawyers, attorney-client privilege, and the police.  We begin with the news that Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan has recused herself in the case of Jennings v. Rodriguez; why?

After that, the guys break down a video called “Don’t Talk To The Police” and discuss some hallmarks of legal videos online.

After that, Andrew tackles Donald Trump Jr.’s assertion that whenever a lawyer enters the room, attorney-client privilege shields everything.  Is that really true?  (No.)

Finally, we end with the answer to Thomas Takes The Bar Exam question #53 about witness impeachment.  Don’t forget to following our Twitter feed (@Openargs) and like our Facebook Page so that you too can play along with #TTTBE!
