Episode 7: Cafeteria Justice

Hello, friends. Josh here in the office (alone, again!) laying down some stories so that you don’t have to troll your RSS feeds tomorrow.  (Incidentally, if you would be so kind, please subscribe to us on iTunes and give us a five star review. It helps people find the podcast and makes me not regret recording alone in the office at 8p.)

1. Continuing our Glass discussion, Ed Walters pointed me to this article by Bruce Thomas over at LII. I talk about the nifty prototype they hacked together over at Cornell.

2. The Police Unions have been trying to intervene in the stop-and-frisk suits happening in New York right now and while the Mayor announced today that the City made a settlement offer, police unions are expressing serious concerns

3. Indirectly via @ouij: the first sale doctrine is pretty clear that once you sell something, you can’t control the downstream use. Someone is apparently not telling that to the lunch ladies (lunch professionals? cafeteria workers?) about the nuances of property because they’re instead dealing some street justice by repossessing the meals of $2 with overdue balances on their lunch accounts. 30 students were allegedly “humiliated and demoralized” when the cashier threw their food in the trash rather than adding another $2 to their tab.

App of the Day!

I’ve been using Duolingo every day for the past two months or so and I’m pretty much in love with it. I’ll tell you why in the cast.

Please also take note of our subreddit at reddit.com/r/thelawreview. Feel free to submit stories there or vote on the stories you’d like to hear us discuss that day. You can also email us at podcast /at fastcase /dot com.
