Re: “Thursday's open line

I'm all for stopping the violence, but is it shocking to anyone else that LRSD is allowing the Bloods...murderous red foes of the Crips...to hold an anti violence event at Franklin Elementary School? Will there be a sign up table?

Re: “The Comey day open line and video report

Let's just assume for a minute that President Trump asked James Comey not to investigate Michael Flynn for violation of some federal law. Explain:

1. How is that legally different than President Obama asking the justice department not to investigate or prosecute violations of the federal law proscribing marijuana?

2. How is that legally different than President Obama asking ICE not to deport individuals who are in the United States in violation of federal citizenship laws?

Re: “Justice Hart blasts use of arbitration to resolve disputes instead of courts

Mandatory arbitration is limited to Contracts, plainjim. Contracts, including ones with arbitration provisions, must be entered into voluntarily to be enforced in the first place.

Re: “Justice Hart blasts use of arbitration to resolve disputes instead of courts

Shouldn't two adults be allowed to resolve their disputes out of court if they so choose? Perhaps they want to avoid the politics associated with state courts (especially the AR supreme Court). Perhaps they think arbitration will be cheaper. Perhaps they want to limit discovery. Why do I need some Harper Lee quoting nanny to resolve my disputes if I want to do it myself? And if it ends up blowing up in my face, then I can live with the consequences of my adult decision that I made for myself.

Re: “Today in Trump: Obstruction of justice anyone?

I love how you turn "I hope you can let this go" into "...the president asked him to shut down the investigation into Michael Flynn." That's an old lawyer trick; when the actual words don't convey the desired meaning, just paraphrase to make it work.

Let me take a stab at it:

Actual language: "Don't disappoint me, Trumpheads. Tell me how this is nothing. Remind me again of that e-mail server."

Paraphrased: Brantley admitted he is a partisan hack who twists words to make his enemies look bad.

Re: “Judge explains ruling against city of Little Rock for eviction of apartment tenants

Don't quit your day job, SP; under her order there will be no trial on liability. She will be reversed because there is no due process right to occupy leasehold property, especially when that property constitutes a public safety nuisance. Do you think a firefighter would need to have a hearing before he can drag someone out of a burning apartment?

Re: “Judge explains ruling against city of Little Rock for eviction of apartment tenants

Who wants to bet she'll be reversed?
