Law blog roundup

Welcome back! Time to catch up on some law-related tidbits:

  • In a rough divorce, who gets to keep the friends?
  • Even good doctors make mistakes — and doctors who do work on superstar athletes are not immune from malpractice lawsuits.
  • Consumers struggling with payments really have to be on the lookout these days for scammers,  but some in Erie, Penn. have been duped beyond the norm. A debt collection company there set up a FAKE courtroom, complete with faux judges and sheriffs. This one’s a doozy.
  • An insurer is suing the D.C. Water and Sewer Authority for $8 million because its water lines are so leaky that firefighters could not get enough pressure to put out a fire in the home of Peggy Cooper-Cafritz, a collector of fine art.
  • Voters in Iowa ousted three judges from the state’s Supreme Court last week. The three were part of the unanimous decision to allow same-sex marriage in 2009.
  • Lamebook v. Facebook
  • The University of Missouri, Kansas City has launched a small firm and solo attorney incubator for recent grads.
