I thought this was a joke, but just learned that it is a quote taken from a published philosophy paper.
A recent philosophy paper: ‘In what follows, some of the claims I will be critically discussing may offend some readers. Unfortunately, it is impossible to argue against these potentially offensive claims without mentioning them. I regret that we are faced with this challenge.’

You can always tell a well-prepared deposition witness because when their lawyer asks fake-calmly "do you have the question in mind?" they flinch because they know that means YOU FUCKING IDIOT SHUT YOUR FOOL MOUTH AND LISTEN TO THE QUESTION OR I WILL DISEMBOWEL YOU

If I've had enough time I can get it so all I have to do is clear my throat or mutter "hmmm" and the client will twitch like they're being catheterized by Tigger

And you can't just OVERLOOK or IGNORE 1.9 million people, right? It's not like your colleague molesting students in the shower.
1.9 million illegal immigrants were apprehended at the southern border in 2021. That’s larger than the population of Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Columbus, Ohio combined.

“Developmentally appropriate” according to whom, I wonder
If Florida Republicans’ new anti-gay bill passes, parents can sue a public school that “encourage[s] classroom discussion about sexual orientation or gender identity” in a manner that is not “developmentally appropriate.” If they win, parents get damages and attorneys’ fees.

RFKJr is bad and terrible but the people in the replies to this tweet who are like “you need to divorce your husband or I’ll never respect you again” are sort of grossing me out.

I heard public defender Robert Baum whisper to someone in the audience that Avenatti is going pro se and that “this was always coming.” I ducked out when it became obvious Furman was going to approve so I could update here but am headed back in now to hear the rest of it.

For once big legal news happens on a Tuesday and we will get to hear @jbarro and @Popehat discuss it in a timely manner on their podc … oh, right
Oh, man. Michael Avenatti just dumped his public defenders in court and will represent himself moving forward against charges he stole $300,000 from Stormy Daniels. This means Avenatti will be cross examining Daniels when she takes the stand tomorrow.

Interesting catch by Twitter's lawyers. Trump's lawyers, who are trying to persuade a court that Twitter plotted with the gov't, said a congressional memo dealt with limiting "[conservative] content" on the site. What it actually said was "misinformation and extremist content."
