SEC vs. Ripple: Discovery Hype

TRANSCRIPTION OF VIDEO: Hello and welcome to Legal Briefs. This is attorney Jeremy Hogan and today is Labor day here in the States which I of course celebrate by working.

Now, these discovery motions are kind of the black sheep of the […]

If you think that Blue Laws violate the separation of church and state in the 1st Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, you are not alone as there have been many lawsuits against these laws over the years. The Supreme Court in the case of […]

TRANSCRIPTION OF VIDEO: Hello this attorney Thien-Vu Hogan and TODAY on LEGAL BRIEFS …  Can be ARRESTED for spreading Covid? And the Answer is YES, in most states you CAN be arrested if you INTENTIONALLY or RECKLESSLY spread Covid.  The “INTENTIONAL” part PROBABLY makes sense to you but what does it mean to “RECKLESSLY” spread Covid? FIRST, you must KNOW that you have Covid, and SECOND, in most states you must be violating a health or quarantine order.  So let’s say you have Covid and go out after 9:00 pm when there is a 9:00 pm curfew – that could […]
