New at Point of Law

Things you’re missing if you aren’t checking out my other site:


  • Feds swoop down on 2003 settlement to demand that parties reimburse Medicare as provided by retroactive law.

    That is a blatant direct violation of Article 1, Section 9, clause 3 of the U.S. Constitution, isn’t it? It seems as though they aren’t even bothering to pretend any more.

  • What Rob said. Ok smart lawyers – how is this NOT an ex post facto law?

  • no name guy – your mistake is looking to the Constitution and thinking that it has much relevance to governance today.
    Don’t beat yourself up though, everyone else pretty much has bought into it too.

  • Yeah, silly me, thinking we were a nation of laws that have a constant meaning through time so that people can make rational decisions and predict outcomes so as to choose courses of action reasonably understanding the consequences.

    Silly me……
