My Flat Tire Incident

Here is a post I wrote on Spartan bLAWg about my recent flat tire incident on my way to Property class this last week.

On my way to class this Tuesday I was forced to deal with an unexpected element that no law student, or anyone for that matter, likes to deal with— a flat tire… I was lucky enough to make it to campus and park in the Shaw parking lot before noticing the hissing noise and the nail protruding from my tire, however, I had five minutes until class started to figure out how to handle this situation. After running to class and doing a quick Google search for tow trucks and mechanics, I was all set to call a tow truck and have my car hauled off to the dealer, until the student behind me offered to help me put on a spare.

Without this individuals gracious offer to help, I probably would have spent $100 or more on a tow truck just getting my car to the shop. Therefore, I am very grateful and thankful for this individuals help. It really shows how some students at law school, particularly MSU, are actually going to help other students out and not just worry about themselves or the next reading assignment they have to or the exam they have in a week. That is one of the many reasons I am glad I am a SPARTAN and attend MSU Law.

A little Con Law 2 News

The Supreme Court today let stand a ruling in a case involving Choose Life license plates in Illinois. The decision means that the Illinois officials who declined to issue the license plates in Illinois have won a legal victory against the pro-life advocates who wanted the plates to raise funds for adoptions.

Despite the refusal to hear the case, motorists in 24 states can buy Choose Life license plates and 14 more states are working on them.

Small Victory for NFL Players?

SMALL VICTORY: In Ft. Lauderdale, Omar Kelly reported NFL players Friday "received a victory when NFL teams, owners were ordered to stop unlawful attempts to reduce workers compensation benefits" to injured players. U.S. District Judge Paul Crotty "issued an injunction requiring all NFL teams and owners to stop seeking to reduce the worker compensation benefits due to former NFL players as a result of injuries they suffered while playing the game." Kelly wrote, "Of course it's a small victory that won't get us closer to ending this lockout, but considering player safety and long term treatment is the only issue I'm personally advocating for it's an important one" (SUN-SENTINEL.com, 3/28).
