SHORT CIRCUIT PODCAST

Episode 208: The Government is Special

Wanna get mad? This week we’ve got you covered. Two cases where the government plays by different rules from the rest of us. First Jaba Tsitsuashvili explains how the 11th Circuit went out of its way to excuse the Department of Justice’s failure to raise a legal argument to do with a traffic stop search that private attorneys would not get away with. And Josh House tells us what the 8th Circuit thinks about property when you don’t pay property taxes. The result isn’t pretty. Along the way, however, there’s a few laughs and in the 11th Circuit case we hope you appreciate that “the dissent comes with receipts.”
