You Hitting The Curb Means I Fixed It

There’s an old saying that goes you can’t legislate common sense. Neither, it seems, can you appoint it to the bench. Just ask the Michigan judges who ruled that a tire rotation was completed by a mechanic even though said mechanic missed the very important part of the procedure where you tighten all of the …

Universal Music’s Absolute Hosing Of Its Artists Found To Be A-Ok

You Get What You Pay For

Apparently all of this started over a child custody case, one that McCarty was a little confused about, if you can …

We Lost A Court Case? What Do You Mean? I Don’t See Any Court Case Here

Who could have possibly seen this coming? The Ford government is trying to use the new powers it buried in the budget bill to dismiss at least eight lawsuits against it, including ones that it’s losing or has already lost. Tell us about the case of Adam Capay. This is a former inmate who was held …
