Attorney General Ken Paxton asked his followers to harass Court of Criminal Appeals judges regarding a prior decision. That decision held that the AG cannot prosecute election fraud cases without permission from the local District Attorney. I previously wrote about AG Paxton’s call to arms here. It was an extraordinary call from any elected

David Yamada, law professor at Suffolk University Law School, has written extensively on workplace bullying. He writes the blog on workplace bullying at Minding the Workplace. He published a seminal paper on workplace bullying in the Georgetown Law Journal in 2008. See that paper here. Mr. Yamada has drafted a model bill entitled,

The Texas Military Department has activated at least 6500 members of the Texas National Guard, and perhaps as many as 10,000. Remarkably, they called some soldiers to active duty with only two or three days notice. In numerous news reports, Guardsmen have reported they are vastly under-employed. One Guardsman was quoted as saying all he

When I was called to active duty in 2003, we had exactly 5 days notice. But, our leadership had dropped heavy hints two months prior. And, that activation was classified. It was “super secret.” Still, we had those precious two months to change our lives.

Many soldiers in Operation Lone Star just had two

When I was a young warehouseman working my way through college, my job was to pick orders – that means gathering the products and items for a given order. I was tempted more than once to climb those 20 foot high shelves to grab a quick item. Climbing the shelves would have saved me the

I first wrote this a few Christmases ago. It still seems to resonate. Every Christmas, I look back to my Christmas in Iraq, some six years ago.  I served as a Civil Affairs officer supervising a staff of 3.  In the war zone, everyday is a work day. On Christmas Eve, we worked a full

I wrote about the Judge’s initial decision here. Judge Linda Parker, a federal judge in Detroit, found lawyers Sidney Powell, Lin Wood and others guilty of filing a frivolous lawsuit. Their weak lawsuit claimed there was election fraud in the Michigan 2020 election. Their allegations were just silly. Worse, they had no evidence with

I first wrote this for Veterans Day in 2009.  On Veterans Day, we note the spirit of service. Here are some examples:

The Ft. Hood 13

Today comes another Veteran’s Day.  Many of us recall a grandfather who served or an uncle who endured. The 13 who were killed at Ft. Hood exemplify the hundreds

Every school boy and school girl knows the preamble to the U.S. Constotution:

“We the People of the United States … and secure the Blessings of Liberty to Ourselves and our Posterity”

On that phrase, Henning Jacobson largely based his challenge to the smallpox vaccination in 1904. The state of Massachussetts imposed a smallpox vaccine

Now that the FDA has given final approval to the Pfizer vaccine, many employers have started requiring employees to get the covid vaccine. Can employers require employees to get a coronavirus vaccine? It is very likely that they can. We start with the general OSHA requirement of all employers to maintain a safe workplace. Every
