Hello, this is my user page.

I guess I can post more details about myself, but that will have to wait.

Disclaimer

In the interests of avoiding scandal, I present the following disclaimer to clarify my role as a Conservapedia editor:

My edits should only be construed as endorsement of text that I author and introduce. I do not endorse text written by other authors. In particular, I do not endorse the Conservative Bible Project.

Shameless self-promotion

One of my side projects is creating a federal bill to give consumers and employees in arbitration due process protections, based on Jeff Sessions's Fair Arbitration Act. This project is discussed on my blog.

Court cases I'm following

(Note that since I do not have PACER access and some of the cases I follow are state court cases, this information may be incomplete. Also, I may neglect to update it on a regular basis.)

Sanchez v. Valencia Holding Co., before Cal. Supreme Court
After SCOTUS's AT&T Mobility v. Concepcion decision holding state rules requiring class actions to be available as preempted by the Federal Arbitration Act, the California Court of Appeals affirmed the trial court's refusal to grant Valencia's motion to compel arbitration on the grounds that the contractual provision for an appeal in certain circumstances and the carve-out for relief Valencia would be likely to seek was substantively unconscionable. Valencia petitioned for certiorari, and the California Supreme Court granted it; the Supreme Court will determine whether the Court of Appeals' refusal to enforce the arbitration provision on the grounds of the one-sidedness of the appeals clause and the carve-out for relief likely to be sought by Valencia is also preempted by the Federal Arbitration Act.
The sad part is that it has been nearly three and a half years since the Court of Appeals' ruling, and the California Supreme Court finally held oral arguments on May 5, 2015 (meaning that a decision is due in August 2015). These sorts of delays in the court system may well defeat the point of agreeing to arbitration.

Quotes

Respect for the reputation of persons forbids every attitude and word likely to cause them unjust injury. He becomes guilty:
--of rash judgment who, even tacitly, assumes as true, without sufficient foundation, the moral fault of a neighbor;
--of detraction who, without objectively valid reason, discloses another's faults and failings to persons who did not know them;
--of calumny who, by remarks contrary to the truth, harms the reputation of others and gives occasion for false judgments concerning them.

I wish we could drop into the Potomac all those obsolescent conservatives who are still preoccupied with Alger Hiss and General MacArthur, and who keep trotting out laissez faire economics and other dead horses. They make the Republican party look musty to millions of ignored working-class people who are looking for a party that relates to their needs.
