CLEMENT’S FEES SLASHED

Paul Clement, the former U.S. solicitor general who now is a partner at appellate firm Bancroft, had his hourly rates slashed by a New York federal district judge from $1,100 to $300 in an attorney fee award. Judge Mae D'Agostino of the Northern District of New York chopped by 77 percent a total fee request of $238,871 to $54,306, in a case in which Clement was among several attorneys representing Alfred Osterweil, who challenged the denial of his application for a handgun permit.
In Osterweil v. Bartlett, D'Agostino said the prevailing hourly rates for the Northern District are the appropriate guide for reasonable hourly attorney fees. "[Osterweil] does not identify what specific expertise or skills his attorneys possessed that attorneys within the Northern District of New York do not possess," she said. — Christine Simmons, New York Law Journal

Last night my roommate took me to our town's art museum. I got to see a couple of the Turner pieces that I couldn't find last time I was there.


and the internet is telling me the IMA has a bunch more Turners back in the vaults somewhere.
I didnt see this one that the ima owns, for example.




 The IMA also holds a large collection of works by J.M.W. Turner, containing highlights such as the 1820 watercolor, Rosslyn Castle.[6] The collection, which was formed by a substantial donation by philanthropist Kurt Pantzer in 1979, includes over fifty watercolors, as well as oil paintings, prints, and etchings.[41]

My interest in Turner was rekindled recently when i saw a BBC show about art detectives trying to authenticate 3 Turners in Wales that were thought to be fakes but they proved real. What I learned from the show is that while I know Turner for his seascapes, he also did indoor stuff, nudes and such, but these have been largely hidden away by Victorian prudes. I think there's a potential book there.
I'll try to find the show and add a link.
Found it. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01n39kg

grist for the constitution-in-exile crowd.
this is the second excerpt from this book i have read. i am mostly on the other side of the argument he makes here, but i think it is a useful discussion. i largely agree with his other article about voting rights.

i just missed steve buscemi's AMA today but he mentioned a new webseries he's doing.
http://on.aol.com/show/518173474.120-park-bench/518253370 so i'm watching a bit of that.
clever of him to host it on aol, very hipster.
