Wednesday Writs: Christmas Vacation Edition

Em Carpenter

Em was one of those argumentative children who was sarcastically encouraged to become a lawyer, so she did. She is a proud life-long West Virginian, and, paradoxically, a liberal. In addition to writing about society, politics and culture, she enjoys cooking, podcasts, reading, and pretending to be a runner. She will correct your grammar. You can find her on Twitter.

    WW-3: the reason you see al this is that the COVID bill is attached as a rider to the omnibus appropriation that yelled the federal government how to use the funds it collects. So lots of stuff is in the one Bill but little of it is actually COVID related.Report

    Not really law related but one thing that I’ve noticed is that San Francisco and Oakland shut down a lot more for Christmas and New Years than New York City did. In New York, businesses might close early on the 24th and be shut on Christmas Day. This is the same for December 31st and January 1st. Many businesses don’t shut down at all because people like to celebrate. In San Francisco and Oakland, there are lots of businesses that seem to close down for weeks around Christmas and New Years. The corner store near me is shut down from December 14th to January 4th. Same with a deli near my office where I get lunch. This seems to happen with a lot of places.Report

    1. I’m a Jew and i think the period from December 24 to January 1 should be as much of a national holiday/shut down as possible. There is no reason to be stingy with vacation at this time of year. Then again, I am the kind of liberal who thinks we should give every working adult a legal right to three or four weeks of paid vacation along with having more three day weekends. Long live St. Monday.

    2. WW4: I have no sympathy for her. My fiance wanted to go home to visit her family. She did a two-week quarantine in a hotel room by herself to do so.

    3. WW6: The writers are hacks and just phoning it in at this point.

    4. WW7: Good for the German courts.Report

    WW2: As I’ve said before, IMHO this is on the judges who allow such warrants to go by without demanding corroboration through surveillance.Report
