When the FBI executed a search warrant on his home, Trump and his lawyers filed their complaints in a district where they thought they’d get sympathetic treatment from Judge Aileen Cannon, who Trump appointed.

The recent mass shootings and a New York gun carrying permit case awaiting a decision from the Supreme Court calls for an examination of the current interpretation of the Second Amendment.

Time to revisit the first Trump impeachment now that we know mor…
 
A school district in Tennessee voted to ban the graphic novel Maus from their curriculum. Because of a case called Pico (1982) the school board's stated objection to the material had to be very carefully worded as to not violate the First Amendment.
