Spring 2010
Exam Blog

I will post questions from students here so everyone can benefit from the answers. I will also include exam tips and clarifications of questions. The blog will close the evening before the exam. New material will be added at the top.

---------------

Clarification of question from Chapter 35:

Detroit Free Press v. Ashcroft, 303 F.3d 681 (6th Cir. 2002)

Basically the same facts as North Jersey Media

How did the 6th Cir rule? - (Opposite of the result in North Jersey Media)

Can these cases be reconciled?

Did the United States Supreme Court accept cert in either case?

Where does that leave us?

---------------

Are You Following A Bot? - a must read, the last bit talks about the government using social network bots to hack twitter and facebook.

---------------

Now we know what that iphone position log was for.

---------------

Correction to our class discussion Tuesday. Ms. Middleton was correct - the Office of Legal Counsel is in DOJ and is separate from the White House Counsel's Office. The separation was less obvious during the Bush II presidency because the Vice-President controlled the OLC. The torture memos and other OLC national security memos are here.
