Guam, Jerry. Guam.

Posted: May 30, 2021 by Nazim in Episode!

Get ready to learn, folks, because this episode discusses time, poison, wars and 160 million dollars worth of garbage in the context of Guam v. U.S..  Although its mostly a case about statutory interpretation; and it’s core, its the case you didn’t know you needed to know more about.  The law is a moving target here, but there’s less nonsense than you may think.

Listen, there’s a lot going on here.  As a general proposition, this week’s episode asks Brett and Nazim to narrow down which classification of lawyers would be best to sit with at a wedding table.  Amidst discussing other wedding and marriage-related topics, your boys somehow find time to discuss recent opinions Facebook v. Duguid, Jones v. Mississippi, and Torres v. Madrid.  A time stamp would be insulting to both of us, so we’ve done away with it this week.
