"She's also challenging the initiative to increase the minimum wage."

She sounds like a real fuckin' hoot.

Re: “DHS appeals ruling on Rutledge's personnel file

Employees records are protected. These were only released because, for 10 years, until it was suddenly a problem for them, DHS considered Rutledge terminated. Which, depending on the balancing test, makes them *possibly* open to disclosure. This ruling will only ever apply where (1) an agency says a person is terminated and (2) there is a compelling public interest in disclosure of the records.

Re: “DHS appeals ruling on Rutledge's personnel file

They already complied with the order by releasing the records, so this appeal will likely be dismissed as moot. But it's pretty bold (in a stupid way) to appeal when your defense is, basically, "yeah, we lied about her being terminated, which means everything we told DWS about her unemployment was a lie, but we're telling the truth now and we don't want to comply with the logical and legal outcome of our own record keeping."

I'm no fan of The Rut -- and her application for unemployment was properly denied, if only for the wrong reason -- but DHS managed to make themselves look worse than anyone else in this whole thing. What a clusterfuck.

Re: “Following Ballinger's money: Smells like marijuana

Rabid: That's also true. They aren't either/or propositions, though. He's absolutely in the pocket of nursing homes; he used his law partner's marijuana position to cash in as well.

Re: “New federal lawsuit challenges Arkansas executions

The Arkansas Attorney General's Office: Where suing to protect 8th Amendment rights is a "delaying tactic," but removing a case to federal court just to keep the chief moron from testifying is totally legit.

Re: “Griffen's attorneys say Supreme Court justices' alleged procedural error should prompt default judgment

Plainjim- under FRAppP-Civ 8, they were required to seek a stay of the proceedings pending appeal, and they had to file it first in the district court (absent certain circumstances). My understanding is that they did not.
