A 95-Year-Old Judge Is At War With Her Court
Listen now
The Federal Circuit is in the middle of a sensitive inquiry to determine whether 95-year-old judge Pauline Newman is mentally fit to remain on the bench in light of what colleagues have termed “bizarre” and “paranoid” behavior from the judge. Tensions on the court are running high, as Newman has now filed a lawsuit against the court arguing that the investigation into her fitness violates her constitutional rights. Joining Pro Say this week to lay out the saga in full and explain its ramifications for court is Law360 editor-at-large Ryan Davis. Also this week, Proskauer Rose LLP cannot escape a malpractice suit claiming it botched a client’s nine-figure hedge fund stake with sloppy contract drafting, and the top federal prosecutor in Massachusetts steps down amid a series of vast ethics investigations. Finally, Alex and Hailey have one shot, one opportunity to seize everything you ever wanted: To give you an update on how 8 Mile is coloring the defamation dispute between Michael Rapaport and Barstool Sports. Will they capture it? Or just let it slip?
