  1. Black's law dictionary is a better source. It defines heir as "A person who succeeds . . . . upon the death of an ancestor . . . ". So you cannot be an heir until someone dies. Yes, there is an heir apparent and an expected heir, (along with several others) but the statute does not use those terms, it uses "heir".
  2. What the heck . . . . I'll finish it. LOCK
  3. According to the Southern District's website: In light of the public health crisis due to the COVID-19 virus and per reasons set forth in Amended Administrative Order #266, public access to hearings is available via teleconference as noted in PACER/CMECF.
  4. They violate their oath to uphold the Constitution all the time, so what would stop them from violating this?
  5. Ever since the site was updated, this feature no longer works for me either. I've just learned to live with it.
  6. The problem is that you need 60 votes in the Senate for cloture and you are unable to get anything done without the 60 votes to stop a filibuster. Nominations are the exception which only require 50% (it is assumed that the VP who is the president pro tempore of the Senate will cast the tie breaking vote in favor of the presidential appointee and the VP only votes in the case of a tie.) IIRC a bill was filed for national reciprocity during Trump's term, but was never brought to a vote because the votes for cloture weren't there. If I also recall correctly, Rs only held 52 or 53 seats at the time.
  7. I think Todd should write him a letter asking him for a contribution for legal fees to help overturn this unconstitutional garbage. And perhaps he should be reported for an ethics violation if the link for contributions for this purpose go to his campaign instead.
  8. Seeing how the people you look to punish with this proposed law are the exact same people you need to vote for it, this is doomed before it is even drafted.
  9. I'm surprised it didn't say "mostly compliant".
  10. That's a loophole that needs to be closed next session.
  11. The only person Pritzker should be going up against is Joey Chestnut is the funniest thing I have heard all year. For those who don't recognize the name, he is the Nathan's hot dog eating champion 15 years running. Holds world record of 76 hot dogs and buns in 10 min. If anyone can unseat him, it would be JB.
