Contrary to what some may think, getting arrested and put in jail is actually a very common situation. And it does not have to be for a very serious reason, such as harming someone. People get arrested and have to spend one night in jail even for small incidents , such as traffic offenses. If you can’t get a hold of a friend or member of your family, and you have checked the local hospitals with no results, the local police and jails should be the next step in your search. And if you don’t want to call every police office in your area to find out if someone was incarcerated, there is an easier way to get this information. Thankfully, the internet ...

Statistically speaking, it’s an unlikely occurrence. There are currently  about 90 million dogs in the United States . Every year, approximately 4.5 million dog bites get reported. This shows that most dogs don’t bite. Unfortunately, about half of the reported dog bites involve small children between 5 and 9. Somewhere at the back of your mind, you’ll worry about your dog biting someone. You’ve seen them get aggressive during playtime or when they hear noises they’re not familiar with. You start thinking ...

A colloquium on governmental powers during a pandemic kicks off an ambitious virtual series on COVID-19 and the Law One of the most fundamental questions in law is a simple one: who decides?

In the first colloquium of a sweeping new series, “COVID-19 and the Law,” five Harvard Law faculty members grappled with the challenges, limitations, and opportunities of governmental powers during a public health crisis. The colloquium was the first of 11 sessions focused on COVID-19 topics that will run weekly through mid-November. ...

A federal agency's website posting of a "policy statement" skipped statutory notice and comment protections under the Medicare program.  The internet posting that drastically – and retroactively -- would have reduced Medicare payments to 3,500 hospitals is more than an interpretive rule change. It is a substantive legal standard under the Medicare Act. The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), as part of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), bypassed Medicare's public notice and 60-day comment period without a lawful excuse for doing so.  Arguably, the agency sought expedient and less costly decision-making through its authority to ...
