I promise I’m not dead! I started a new job at the Washington University in St. Louis Center for Empirical Research in the Law a few weeks ago, and it has kept me very busy. I hope to find a spare few hours to write up a proper post soon. Topics that people have asked about include:
- New developments in She-Hulk, particularly with regard to ethical issues surrounding the legal practice of “Matt Rocks”
- All kinds of questions about Multiple Man in general
- A follow-up to She-Hulk #1: would Walters have been liable for breaking the firm’s table during her resignation?
- A fascinating question about the legal liability faced by Dennis Nedry in Jurassic Park: by shutting down the park’s systems, would he have been guilty of murder, manslaughter, or something else? (assuming US law applied on Isla Nublar)
- The accuracy of a certain ethical disciplinary action taken against Laurel Lance on Arrow (vague in case it’s a spoiler; I haven’t been following Arrow very closely lately)
- Thor: God of Thunder #21: Roxxon sues Thor and announces its intention to seek restraining orders against him worldwide in response to the alleged destruction of various Roxxon facilities by Thor
- From video games: just how legal is anything Lara Croft does?
- And much more!
I hope to address these soon. In the mean time, if any readers who happen to be legal professionals or enterprising law students would like to take a crack at these, I would be happy to publish guest posts. Bonus points if someone wants to write about the Jurassic Park question and compare US and Costa Rican criminal law.
