Strange Times

The Ricochet University School of Law values diversity — and nowhere is that more evident than in this episode’s topics. Professors Epstein and Yoo tackle the Brussels terrorist attacks, President Obama’s detached attitude towards the ISIS threat, and Donald Trump’s pledge to do “so much torturing it will make your head spin” (note: not an actual quote … yet). Then it’s on to Merrick Garland’s nomination to the Supreme Court: Is he qualified? Does it matter? Are Senate Republicans inviting a backlash? After that, in a Law Talk first, the professors parse the (legal) details of the Hulk Hogan sex tape and the resulting lawsuit against Gawker. Finally — are you ready for this? — is it possible that Epstein and Yoo agree with Donald Trump about revisiting libel laws? Tune in to find out.

    Pres. Obama can’t simply compare the number of people killed in terror attacks to people who die in bathtubs or auto accidents. Auto accidents (or drownings or school shootings) don’t involve all the businesses in the surrounding area losing clientele and/or having to let employees go. What effect has the recent attack had on baggage handlers’ income, or local restaurants and hotels and the servers they employ?
