Not sure if any of you watched making of a murderer but here's the latest on Brendan Dassey...
The Wisconsin Department of Justice has appealed to have the overturning overturned...

Much better to risk keeping an innocent person locked up than admit the system isn't perfect... :yeahright:

Maybe they take advice on legal practices from South African judges?

Well done Sainsbury's.

Some people will do anything for attention. It's a tiny little worm. Put him in the garden and rinse the lettuce. Problem solved.

The Pistorius trial judge would probably give Dassey 100 lines and a lolipop for saying he did it... :yeahright:

I think the concern about this appeal is that they only seem to be bothered about whether procedure was followed correctly, not whether it produced a just result.

Number 18 is about the only one worth looking at, having paid no attention whatsoever to whatever the Americans are doing :D

Uber lose employment status lawsuit.

Potentially very interesting across lots of sectors, and could impact the contractor market well outside of even gig economy jobs.

Interesting one.. a family's 18 year wait for justice comes as the Crown Court was given permission to bring a second prosecution following changes to Scotland's double jeopardy laws..
