Judge Juan Ramirez is now blogging for South Florida. We expect great things.
Ernest Borgnine passed away Sunday. He won the academy award for best actor for his portrayal of a sensitive and lonely New York butcher in Marty in 1955. A great film.
The SCOTUS blog has a breathtaking second by second account of the moments before and after the Supreme Court delivered its opinion in the health care case and the reasons why two networks made the wrong call-initially telling its viewers that the court had struck the entire law down.
There are interesting tidbits such as the court refusing to email the opinion once it was announced:
The Court’s own technical staff prepares to load the opinion on to the Court’s website. In years past, the Court would have emailed copies of the decision to the Solicitor General and the parties’ lawyers once it was announced. But now it relies only on its website, where opinions are released approximately two minutes later. The week before, the Court declined our request that it distribute this opinion to the press by email; it has complete faith in the exceptional effort it has made to ensure that the website will not fail.
