Arizona Bill Would Criminalize Failing to Report Life-Threatening Emergency

Arizona has a bill pending. While, on some level, it has a certain appeal, it’s an example of a knee-jerk reaction to a single event. That event, by the way, didn’t occur in Arizona. Rather, it happened over 2,000 miles away, on the east coast of Florida. Here’s the story. Back in 2016, a man […]

Arizona Ranks High in Cybercrime

A new study has identified Arizona as the seventh worst state in the country for cybercrime. This translates into more than 60,000 Arizonans reporting cybercrimes totaling over $20 million last year. What’s surprising about this, at least at first glance, is that Arizona has just over 2% of the nation’s population, and ranks 14th in […]

Big Pharma’s Role in the Opioid Epidemic

There has been much said in the news lately about the opioid crisis. When Donald Trump made his speech last month about the issue, you’d think he discovered the problem. Well, that’s only about 180 degrees off the mark. The opioid problem in the United States has been recognized by experts in the field for […]

Flawed Forensic Science – Brought to you by the FBI

We’ve all seen trials, mostly on TV but some of us – trial attorneys in particular – have seen real criminal cases being tried in front of real juries.
