OA376: Texas, Wisconsin & Washington (feat. Andrew Seidel)

Today’s episode updates you on litigation in three states: in Texas, where the 5th Circuit blocked the lower court injunction, allowing the anti-abortion executive order to go into place; in Wisconsin, where the Supreme Court literally killed people; and in Washington, where publicity-seeking idiots have some liberals convinced Fox News is about to file for bankruptcy.

We begin in Texas, with an Andrew Was Wrong — and also, a hidden message of solidarity from the dissent in In re Greg Abbott as to how abortion clinics can stay open despite Executive Order GA-08. You won’t want to miss it!

Then, we have on Wisconsin citizen Andrew Seidel to break down the Supreme Court’s decision forcing people to the polls during an epidemic. Bonus: you can count the number of relevant citations in the majority opinion (0).

After that, it’s time to check out the Complaint in WASHLITE v. Fox News, which will probably get us sued by litigation-happy buffoons. As you can imagine, we are NOT KIND to this wadded-up diaper full of nonsense.

Then, you know it’s time for a brand-new #T3BE where Thomas and Andrew S. tackle a civ pro question framed around a car accident. Want to play along? Just share out this episode on social media with #T3BE and we’ll pick a winner….
