HAPPY BIRTHDAY

She's 90














And he died 400 years ago.



It's better to be in England, now that spring is here. 
Events at Stratford-upon-Avon this weekend.

WHEN OA AT THE SUPREME COURT GOES BAD 
Slate has the uncomfortable details here (h/t Mr. Markus).

Our read: The Supreme Court wants to require warrants in DUI blood tests for certain, and maybe even breath tests, but no competent lawyer can give them the facts they need. 

Interesting side note: the court talks a lot about "insta-warrants"- warrants obtained electronically in minutes,  and we're just wondering- original intent and original text wise- in which federalist paper that was discussed?

A certain "venue" is celebrating both this weekend with a special Bangers-and-mash made from local organic pigs and organic Maine new potatoes and a special small batch "brit-brew" micro ale from our pals at Miami-Brew.

Check it out.

THE CAPTAIN REPORTS:

Yet another 5-2 decision by the Florida Supreme Court....

It seems that nearly every decision these days is 5-2, with Canady and Polston united on the "other side" to that of Lewis, Quince, Labarga, Pariente, and Perry.

Today the Court rules that "individuals who are being questioned by authorities have to be told when a lawyer is present".

To read the case of State v. Michael McAdams, go here:

THE CAPTAIN REPORTS:

And the next day, they did it again .....

On Friday, by a vote of 5-2, with the same two dissenters, the Court voted to STAY the 24 waiting period law on Abortions in Florida.

"Petitioner’s motion to stay filed in the above cause is granted until such time as the Court decides if jurisdiction will be accepted."

In McAdamss, very interesting discussion of when, during course of questioning, suspect is determined to be in custody.
