Struggles of Using Legal Recourse as a Path Toward Better Prison Conditions


It seems there could never be enough legal support to help the millions of prisoners who would benefit from having a lawyer at arms’ length. Whether it is lack of medical care, abhorrent nutrition, exposure to extreme temperatures, lack of clean water, or brutality by prison guards, there are endless inhumane conditions prisoners are forced to live through on a daily basis. The National Lawyers Guild’s National Office receives letter after letter from prisoners, mainly requesting a copy of the Jailhouse Lawyers Handbook (a resource for prisoners who wish to file a federal lawsuit addressing poor conditions in prison or abuse by prison staff), but many also hope that they can obtain help from a lawyer to stand up against the prison administration on their behalf. One of the reasons why there are not more lawyers to help prisoners with civil suits is because of the Prison Litigation Reform Act (PLRA).

Tax Reform in the US: Trump's Attack on America


The tax reform of the Republicans is a blow against the welfare state. It strikes low-income persons and was prepared int he 1970s. The tax reform is profitable for Donald Trump but could cost the Republicans a re-election. The character of the tax heist (NY Times) can be understood with the help of the history of the Republican tax-cutting obsession. Public policy is different than sadism, greed and chaos.

Delta Tunnels Hearing at Water Board Delayed Until February 2


Michael Brodsky, the attorney for the Save the California Delta Alliance, was encouraged by today’s decision by the California Water Fix hearing team. “It’s a recognition that this is a very serious situation and that the ultimate outcome of the hearings could be irrevocably tainted if they don’t take some action on the ethical violations that have taken place,” said Brodsky. “They gave the Department of Water Resources until Friday to respond. It might have been better to REQUIRE DWR to respond.” Governor Brown delivers remarks at U.S. Climate Action Pavilion. Photo credit: Rosa Castañeda.

Critics and admonishers were ignored or mocked and warning signals largely ignored. In 2018, corporations inflate their stocks in a $70 billion stock buy back program.
