Torts?

Ah, that explains it. Something to anticipate fondly, I hope.


Lots of RR in property and civ pro too. you need a long strip of land spanning across large distances to build a railroad, so it makes sense how that can cause property complications. RRs go across multiple jdx, so civ pro.

Idk why y'all have so much trouble with boats, my profs dismiss maritime faster than chicks dismiss me at a bar.

DON'T OPEN THIS UNTIL YOU PAY THE $100,000

[+] Spoiler
Ashcroft v. Iqbal

Iqbal was like "dude all the people you're saying are terrorists are Arab Muslims, that's racist," but everyone else was like "idk 9/11 just happened and al Qaeda is pretty much all Arab Muslims so it would kind of make sense that most of the people we think might be involved with Al Qaeda are Arab Muslims" and Iqbal was like "dammit that's all I got," so the government hit him with a 12(b)(6) which wouldn't have been a thing before but since Twombly happened it totally was a thing

I propose a counter-offer. Instead of $100,000 for a lifetime membership, you will get naming rights to my next Iguana in exchange for a two month membership.

I somehow missed this earlier OBVIOUSLY YES, what a great deal. Please tell me about the Iguana's personality and feel free to post pics

I will keep you updated on the iguana so you can name it properly. At the moment, it is a theoretical iguana. It will come as soon as we determine how to keep the cat from killing it when the iguana is young, and then keep the iguana from killing the cat when the iguana is grown.

One solution is finding an employer that will allow me to keep an iguana at the office. This should be easy as the iguana will help us assert dominance/give greater home-field advantage during negotiations.

Torn between boats and railroads [hoes]. But last case I read dealt with a boat so we have a winner. Alaska Packers.

What is wrong with boats? Boats are cool, especially when they burn to a crisp because someone dropped a plank when unloading gasoline, or when you let out the oil from your boat into a harbor and the whole harbor burns to the ground, or when you, in you capacity as cult leader, convince one of our followers that you'll let her get off your boat when you reach America but then you don't provide her with the means to get on shore a couple of miles out. I like boats. I wish I was on a boat right now, instead of not writing this fucking memo.

Well drink 'o clock rolled around a few hours ago which certainly helped speed up the writing process; now I just need to cut 290 words from this 2390 words work of beauty

Probably not a good sign w/r/t not being an alcoholic when actually trying to practice law at some point though

I was actually talking about that with a friend a while back. All these bar reviews, boat cruises, free food and drink, and LRW has really upped the drinking factor.

My LRW assignments are due at 1 AM (well midnight is the stated deadline, but my house is in a different time zone), my last assignment was submitted with 43 seconds to spare.

I felt bad about leaving that much time on the clock, maybe I will do better on Saturday.

P.S.

A a parent of a young child, it stinks that I have an assignments due on Halloween. . .
