Interview with Justice Thomas

If you missed the 60 Minutes interview, you should go watch it. Whatever you think of his politics, the man carries a grudge. It struck me as sad. Another interview is here.

Hooray for an old Friend

While perusing for statutory issues this morning, I found a story that an old friend of mine, who I still keep in touch with occasionally, was appointed to the Fifth Circuit. The story about Jennifer Walker-Elrod's confirmation is here. Way to go!

California Appellate Court: Federal Statute of Limitations Applies to Telephone Consumer Protection Act Claims

In a case of first impression, a California Court of Appeals held that the federal "catch all" statute of limitations, and not state law, governed claims brought under the Telephone Consumer Protection Act of 1991. Sznyter v. Malone, 2007 WL 2834261 (Cal. App. Oct. 2, 2007). Sounds simple, right? Well the statute in the TCPA that created the private right of action begins: "A person or entity may, if otherwise permitted by the laws or rules of court of a State..." It's an interesting read.
