Short Circuit 162 | I Will Get Credit When I Crush You
If you’re the State, what do you get when you put money owed to a prisoner in a special account, and then take most of that money out for yourself? You lose in federal court. Bob McNamara walks us through a particularly outrageous civil rights lawsuit from Connecticut. Plus, Anya Bidwell describes what happens when a judge is so involved in a case that he shows up at a deposition and also tells the plaintiff he will “crush” her.
