Supreme Court overturns California law on euthanizing downed livestock. According to the Washington Post:
The Supreme Court on Monday blocked a California law that would require euthanizing downed livestock at federally inspected slaughterhouses to keep the meat out of the nation’s food system. The high court ruled that the state’s 2009 state law was blocked from going into effect by federal law administered by the Agriculture Department’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.

The Fourth District Court of Appeal has fined an Orange County attorney $10,000 for misconduct. The misconduct is aptly summed up by the court as follows:
How much do you sanction an attorney who lies to the court, seeks unwarranted sanctions, bullies opposing counsel, shows no remorse, and effectively vows to continue such tactics by endorsing his conduct when challenged on it?
