Space Junk Crashes On Your Home: Who’s Liable?

TRANSCRIPTION FROM VIDEO: Did you know that more than 128 million pieces of space junk are just orbiting around the Earth. And an average of one piece a DAY falls to earth!  And we’re not talking about a screw here or a rubber hose there.

Just this year a vessel crashed on a farm in Washington making a 4 inch dent into the ground. Puts a different spin to Chicken Little’s “The Sky Is Falling” doesn’t it? So what […]

TRANSCRIPTION OF VIDEO: Hello, Attorney Thien-Vu Hogan here. Did you know that some U.S. Counties and other countries around the world BAN the sale of alcohol and other activities on Sundays?

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 […]

Are Vaccination Passports Lawful?

TRANSCRIPTION OF VIDEO: Welcome to Legal Briefs – in 60 seconds, and today you find out if a national “vaccine passport” could be legal in the USofA. Yes, a vaccine passport could legally be in your future.  If Congress were to pass a law requiring you to, for example, show your vaccine passport to enter an airport or board a train or drive across state lines, it is well within its power to do so. Will armed soldiers be sticking needles in your arm?  No, probably not – you will simply be shut out of “Government” services especially in  those […]
