    Supreme Court will hear case on immigration bond hearings for noncitizens convicted of crimes

    17:23, March 19 2 0

    Bloomberg Politics and the Associated Press covered the cert denial. The cert petition in Nielsen v. Preap asks whether immigrants are subject to mandatory detention—meaning they don’t get a bond hearing—if they serve their time for a conviction and are released by criminal authorities some time before they’re picked up by immigration authorities. Federal law says mandatory detention applies to immigrants who are transferred directly from a criminal jail or prison to immigration detention. But Bloomberg says it’s less clear whether that applies when immigration authorities don’t take custody right away.

    That’s the conclusion of experts who spoke with Politico after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced in a statement that McCabe should be fired because he “had made an unauthorized disclosure to the news media and lacked candor—including under oath—on multiple occasions.” McCabe was fired two days before his retirement, and it means he is no longer eligible for a full pension.

    Why are law deans not fired after investigations find misconduct with women?

    10:09, March 19 6 0

    The reason for that is twofold, says Saundra Schuster, an attorney at the NCHERM Group in Pennsylvania who does risk management work with universities. It’s easier and cheaper to pay these deans for a year than defend the lawsuits they’d likely file if they were fired, she explains, and most academic-track administrators have tenure as part of their employment contracts. Firing someone with tenure is almost impossible, Schuster says.
