Morning Docket: 06.13.19

/

* Legal experts seem somewhat concerned about Trump going on TV and inviting foreign intelligence agencies to intervene in the election. On behalf of the great George Bluth, I ask, “what’s wrong with a little light treason?” [Huffington Post]

* Michael Flynn has hired Sidney Powell, probably because she goes on Fox News to bash Mueller. Sounds like a perfect reason to fire Covington & Burling. Oh, and now Trump is hailing the move because his only grasp of legal talent is “appearing on TV.” [National Law Journal]

* Meanwhile, in the UK, a lawyer argues that vegans should be legally exempt from tea time. [Legal Cheek]

* “LawDude” lawyer buys Confederate statue for $1.4 million. It’s unknown if this purchase was for himself or as an agent for some unknown racist. [Dallas Morning News]

* Nevada brings marijuana laws to logical conclusion by preventing most employers from dinging people who test positive for it. [WIVB]

* Bryan Singer settles rape claim for $150K which sounds very much like a nuisance settlement. [The Wrap]

* Payday lender Scott Tucker is trying his “tribal sovereignty” defense again desperately hoping someone will join him in thinking “Kansas City” is on a reservation. [Law360]
