Klayman Files His New Lawsuit

As promised, Larry Klayman has filed his latest lawsuit, which retired con law prof Howard Friedman calls “rather bizarre.” It’s every bit as ridiculous as one might predict.

Lawyers for a private group that is defending Nevada’s law against same-sex marriage (the state decided not to defend it any longer) are asking for an en banc rehearing by the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals, which struck down that law last week along with a similar law in Idaho.

Benham Brothers Still Just Like ISIS Victims

The Benham brothers, the spectacularly dumb sons of far-right theocrat Flip Benham, are again comparing themselves to the victims of terrorist violence in the Middle East because they had their reality show about flipping house canceled due to their outrageous bigotry.
