Legal news everyone should know

I’ve deliberately steered clear of election coverage until now, but the law is steeped in the top-down influence of presidential politics, not to mention the next president gets a SCOTUS pick. So I’m starting things off with some neutral reporting on each candidate’s platform, courtesy Reuters.
I’m also disgusted by the lawmakers who voted to override the Presidential veto of the 9/11 lawsuits authorization bill, which makes U.S. citizens vulnerable to similar lawsuits in foreign courts, so there’s a good explainer below from Vox about all that jazz.
If you want snark during the second presidential debate Sunday, find me on Twitter!
Oh, and if you love your friends and family you’ll do them a favor and forward this along.
