Judicial Activism Redux. There's an interesting editorial by Ann Althouse of the Wall Street Journal on judicial activism that I bet you'll find interesting here.
Exit Poll Ban Likely to be Banned. A Florida statute that bans exit polls within 100 feet of the polls has been viewed skeptically by a federal judge, an article points out. This is sort of scary -- exit polls may be the only thing remotely approaching verification of these electronic voting machines, and yet they want to ban them? Why?
A Defamatory Statement by Any Other Name... Also from an article in Florida, a court held that a plaintiff could not avoid the statute of limitations for defamation by characterizing his claim as one for "false light."
