Citizens United and 100 Years of Law?

How does the Citizens United ruling "roll back 100 years of law"? As far as I can tell, it only allows corporations (= companies and unions) to do in the 30 or 60 day run-up period before an election what they've always been able to do before those cutoff dates.

Would law degree enhance HR masters degree?

I am currently a mid-level associate at a prominent New York law firm specializing in benefits and compensation. I am not cut out for working at a big law firm long term and there have not been many alternate opportunities lately that would be satisfying to me (i.e. working at a pension fund, compensation consultant, in-house positions). I enjoy many aspects of my field, but not the law firm lifestyle. I am considering going back to school to get a degree in human resources and am wondering if my JD and background in benefits and compensation law would help me secure a human resources job.

Bad bra. Now what?

In late July my wife bought a bra from a national retail chain. She wore it one day and was left with a painful large welt/wound on both sides that made it uncomfortable to wear any bra for three weeks. When she explained what happened to the store, they put her in touch with their corporate offices. The welt/wound has mostly healed, although some red areas are still visible and there is some mild throbbing and more-than-occasional itching. She saw a dermatologist who said that there may be some permanent discoloration. The corporate rep indicated that they'd pay for the doctor's visit, although there really wasn't any out-of-pocket cost because the visit was covered by my insurance. Beyond this, can she expect some kind of compensation for the pain, inconvenience and continued problems? What's the best way to go about asking the company? Do we need a lawyer? How do we find one?

    Filming on mass transit in Toronto, Canada. Legal?

    Filming on mass transit in Toronto, Canada. Legal? ... A friend of a friend of mine was on a Toronto streetcar when a fellow passenger complained about the delay to the driver. The driver threw a fit and decided the passenger had to leave or she wouldn't drive on. The passenger refused. The driver called an inspector. The inspector sided with the driver (of course). My friend captured this on her cell phone video. When the inspector sees the camera (which was in clear view the entire time) he walks over and smashes the camera out of her hand (he didn't ask her to turn it off first). My friend wants to post the video but is unaware if filming on the transit system in the city is illegal as faces are clearly visible. I saw the video and was shocked and want it spread wide. Legally, what's the situation? [more inside]

    Help me outsource my lawn mowing.

    I've got about two acres of grass in the country, and I'm considering getting a critter or two to eat the grass so that I don't have to mow it. Does anybody have any recommendations for animals that make good lawn mowers? Bonus points if I can eat the animals in the fall and replace them in the spring, and even more points if they're low maintenance. I don't mind supplementing their diet.
