    Britney Spears may be free from her conservatorship, but the fight isn’t over. She is still fighting for money and her dignity. Britney Spears’ father, James Spears, has been going back and forth with Britney through their lawyers over a number of discovery issues but the heart of it is the objections to the twelfth accounting. The twelfth accounting was the beginning of the end of the conservatorship. The objections largely regard how money was spent from Britney’s estate, including funds spent on former business manager Tri Star. There is so much legal that happened at the last hearing today I am breaking it all down.

    How is Amber Heard paying for all this? We heard her testify that she paid over 6 Million Dollars defending the defamation lawsuit….but did she? Her insurance companies are fighting over who should pay for her legal defense and it has a lot of details. Furthermore, her insurance company New York Marine is suing her for a judgment, saying they don’t have to pay for her lawyers or her Judgement. There is also the question of the suspension bond, will Johnny Depp be able to go after Amber Heard for the $10 Million judgment? Judge A made clear any suspension bond would need to be the full amount of the judgment plus the 6% interest. It will be interesting to see where this goes from here.

    On July 14, disgraced attorney Alex Murdaugh was indicted for the murder of his wife and son. He is now facing 17 indictments totaling 85 charges. It is the most staggering case because it also involves a web of civil litigation regarding the death of Mallory Beach in a boating under the influence accident in a boat driven by now deceased Paul Murdaugh and the still under investigation death of Murdaugh housekeeper Gloria Satterfield and the staggering theft from her estate. Buckle up for this wild timeline, there is so much more to come.

    NOTE. On July 11th after this episode was recorded in advance of her federal trial Jen Shah plead guilty to one count of wire fraud. There is a bonus podcast episode covering the plea and a video breaking it down on YouTube. Jen Shah has maintained her innocence since her arrest and through her attorney was pushing this case forward to trial. Each time the trial was delayed there were objections from Jen’s attorneys. Jen was facing up to 60 years and due to her plea is now only facing 30 years. I am still surprised she plead.

    Dobbs v. Jackson, breaking down the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade

    Dobbs v. Jackson, breaking down the Supreme Court decision overturning Roe v. Wade

    Justice Alito, in delivering the majority opinion for the Supreme Court in Dobbs v. Jackson starts by acknowledging that “[a]bortion presents a profound moral issue on which Americans hold sharply conflicting views”. It is a topic on which discussions of disagreement are difficult to navigate making this case all the more challenging to discuss. On June 24, 2022, the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade a 1974 Supreme Court case that extended constitutional protection to the right to an abortion through the due process clause of the 14th amendment. The Court stated in their holding that the “Constitution does not confer a right to abortion; Roe and Casey are overruled; the authority to regulate abortion is returned to the people and their elected representatives.” The ruling is over 200 pages and includes concurrences from Justices Thomas, Justice Kavanaugh, and Chief Justice Roberts. The Dissent is delivered by Justices Breyer, Sotomayor, and Kagan. In the Dissent they state “[f]or half a century, Roe v. Wade and Planned Parenthood v. Casey have protected the liberty and equality of women. Roe held, and Casey reaffirmed, that the Constitution safeguards a woman’s right to decide for herself whether to bear a child.”
    This decision leaves entirely in the hands of the states the right to regulate or not, abortion. I hope that this episode breaks down this case in a way that makes it understandable and gives some insight into how I break down topics that are significantly charged.
