    Debtors’ prisons are supposed to be a thing of the past, but a spike in medical debt and aggressive legal tactics by collectors are increasingly exposing cash-strapped patients to arrest and jail time. We’re joined this week by Law360 reporter Jack Karp to break down the growing problem. Also this week: A lawsuit over the New York City real estate market’s dreaded “broker’s fee”; a judge who called out corporate “hypocrisy” over the use of forced arbitration agreements; and a special Valentine’s Day segment about a weirdo who sued his girlfriend for dumping him.

    Ep. 139: When Coronavirus Threatens The Workplace

    As the coronavirus ravages central China and stokes fears of an outbreak, employers are beginning to consider steps to ensure their workplaces remain safe. But there is a delicate balance to strike, as some of those well-intentioned steps could leave businesses on shaky legal ground with their employees. Joining us to discuss a raft of legal issues stemming from the virus is Law360’s senior employment reporter Vin Gurrieri. Also this week, a federal appeals judge calls out the government’s use of PACER fees; the Trump administration moves to bust up Schick’s acquisition of shaving startup Harry’s; and two attorneys’ attempt at a “Weekend at Bernie’s” reboot falls flat in the Second Circuit.

    Donald Trump has been impeached, but what comes next is increasingly unclear as lawmakers squabble over the terms of a Senate trial that could potentially remove him from office.

Joining us this week to break it all down is Norm Ornstein, a congressional expert and scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. Also this week: Ikea pays $46M to settle litigation over dangerous furniture; a class action over the hacking scandal involving Amazon’s Ring home security system; and a judge is suspended over accusations of a courthouse ménage à trois.

Come to understand law, stay for the witty banter

As a workflow coordinator, I love that this podcast breaks down what is going on in the world of law as it helps me understand my small part in the big picture. The hosts are great at explaining things to non-lawyers and are hilarious. Recommend for anyone interested in US Law.
