Jeff Bellinger, Bloomberg radio. What is dedication? The thing that drives me every day is a day is very annoying. We call them day to day for short. Every day he's hungry for something, whether it's attention, affection, knowledge, and there's this huge responsibility and making sure that when he's no longer under my wing, that he's a good person. I think the advice I would give is you don't need to know all the answers. The craziest thing was believing that your dad knew everything. So as a dad, you felt like you had to know everything. You had to get everything right. It's okay to make mistakes. As long as it's coming from love, then, you know, it kind of starts to work itself out. I want him to be able to

"A back to our conversation in a moment, But first, we'd love your help. With Wednesday's show on infrastructure in taxes. Congress is back in session this week, and we'll be talking about their plans to pay for President Biden's $3.5 trillion infrastructure package. A key part of the plan involves raising taxes on wealthy businesses and individuals. But getting Congress to agree on these tax hikes will be a challenge all of its own. We want to hear from you. What questions do you have about these proposed tax increases? Leave us a voicemail 8552361, a one. A. Maybe You have questions about Biden's infrastructure Bill and what's in it? What do you want to know? 8552361 a one A. Or you can send us an audio file with our app. One a vox pop, and we'll share some of your stories. Wednesday on one a Let's get back to your questions about Texas New anti abortion law with David Cole and appellate litigator based in Texas, also with us Mary Ziegler. She's a professor at Florida State University College of Law. She's also the author of Abortion and the Law in America, Roe v. Wade to the present. One listener asks. Does the clinic have to shut down or does it provider lose their license if they are successfully sued David The statute allows someone who brings one of these claims to sue for therapist, $10,000 thing, attorney's fees and injunctive relief to forget the exact language but prevent further violations of the law. Something like that. So there's not that kind of penalty directly tied into the enforcement mechanism in the statute, But you could imagine a case, particularly if they have been a number of them brought against the same person or the same provider where a court thought it was necessary under the statute to enter some kind of injunction against the provider, continuing to provide services. Here's an email we got from Daniel, who says the thing about the Texas law I can't understand is doesn't plaintiff need to prove damages to entitle them to sue? What damage? Can a plaintiff claim for someone else getting an abortion? Mary? Well, the law tries to sort of dispense with all the ordinary rules right of standing right. So this person doesn't have to have had anything to do with the case and damages to because, um, I think, as as the questioner was mentioning, Usually you have to show that you had lost wages or you had lost medical bills or You had emotional harm. And of course, people who are completely strangers. To this particular abortion won't be able to claim any of that. The short answer is that you don't need to under the statute. That if the statute was violated, which is to say, if somebody aided or abetted or performed an abortion, you can get $10,000 period even if you had nothing to do with anything, And that's particularly striking because we don't really know what aiding or abetting means other than its language that we typically wouldn't see. In civil setting at all, we would be seeing it in criminal court. It's criminal language, which I think alludes to the possibility that this is, you know, not the final word. We're going to probably see more criminal bills coming out of Texas if the court is to reverse Roe v. Wade. But you know to answer the question. You don't need to have suffered any personal damages at all. And the statute tries to make that pretty clear. We're getting a lot of questions about the connection to the 1982 Supreme Court case. Larkin versus Grendel, den David tell us about the case in the president, its head. So Grendel's den. Is that a popular bar? And the Harvard Square area near the Harvard campus and Cambridge and Cambridge City Council and its wisdom passed an ordinance that essentially gave the church next door to Grendel's den, the option of power to shut it down. It said that if a church of governing board objected to a bar within a certain number of feet of where the church is located and tough luck, the permit would be pulled. And, uh, Harvard law professor Laurence Tribe led the defense of Grendel's den went to the Supreme Court and on freedom on the establishment of religion grounds. First Amendment doctrine, the Supreme Court held that law was unconstitutional. As part of its analysis. In addition to the case law specific to the religion clauses of the First Amendment, it took issue with the city of Cambridge, having delegated its power as a sovereign to a private actor, and that's an important issue about what we've been talking about is standing here. It's unusual for stuff private litigants be able to sue without any damage of their own. In fact, it's someone usual because that's usually what prosecutors and law enforcement officials do. They're the ones that get to sue without any injury the their own because they're acting on behalf of the state. So the concept of delegation of power was behind the Grendel's den case, and it's something that's very much alive with this statute and with the DOJ is recent lawsuit against it. Here's another question We got from one of you who used our app when a vox pop. Hi. This is Jennifer and Henrico, Virginia. If I could ask one question, I'd ask the judges there in Texas who have to hear these cases. What do they think of this law? David, you're in Texas. What are you hearing right now? Well. Judges, of course, cannot comment on the case before it's brought to them. But I can tell you what's going to happen when one of these is filed. The first defense that the provider is going to offer is this law is not constitutional. And that issue will be resolved before you get into anything else. In this case, I think the judges will probably conclude that the law is not constitutional. That will end the case. It will go up on appeals to or intermediate courts of appeals, and they will review them. It will start getting some precedent. Uh, I think that I think the litigation in state court, in other words may actually go pretty well for the providers. Once it actually happens. The problem is the fear, in the meantime of large exposure and significant attorney's fees, is making them very hesitant about getting involved in it. Mary. Here's another question We got via Twitter, and it's a question lots of people have cannot provider be sued multiple times for the same abortion. The statutes a little ambiguous on this point, it seems to say that if you if a provider has pulled paid the full amount of damages for specific abortion, which suggests that maybe $10,000 is is the total, not the floor than that provider cannot be issued or eight or better, right? Can't be sued again for the same abortion. Um, so it doesn't entirely closed the door on the prospect of somebody being sued more than once for the same abortion. But it does seem to suggest that if the person has paid $10,000, then they can't be sued again for another $10,000 for that particular abortion, Of course, another abortion right then they can be sued over and over again, which I would imagine would be more of a concern for people. Who are providers than it would be for people who are helping others get an abortion. Although the helping category could include groups like chains due process, another abortion funds that are in the business of helping people get abortions on a repeat basis. But no, there seems to be no way. Um or the statute at least tries to prevent people from being sued multiple times for the same abortion if they've already paid the amount the statute authorizes now, David Last week, a District court judge in Travis County, Texas, granted a temporary restraining order against an anti abortion group, which blocked the group from suing abortion providers. Tell us more about that case..

"That either work with the police or partnership with the police to respond to these situations. That is always going to help. But it's also really important. That police have de-escalation tools and alternatives to direct confrontation that is likely to escalate into a deadly force. Situation handrail. i. I'm hoping that there's a movement in this direction. And you know all i know is we. I think we talked to you last week. About lynn appropriating was at five hundred grand or something for similar sort of diversion cambridge city. Councils voting on something like this and boston are these aberration or is there finally some recognition in police departments across the country. That a that. This is the safer and by way. Cheaper according to most experts way to proceed with these these special kinds of situations. I think this could actually be a trend. I think things have reached a critical mass. Where the number of he's where Police are shooting and killing People who are in the throes of a mental health crisis when they respond to that situation. It's not to say that you know. In in some of the situations they respond to the person clearly can be armed can present danger to themself or themselves or others but the problem is that it ends up with that person dead and so there have been such a such an explosion of those reports recently and as i always say i think and i think maybe this is starting to happen when you look at what it costs to put. This kind of preventative stuff in place and you say well. That's really costly. If you're not considering settlements and judgments against police departments municipalities as a result of those deaths in those injuries when they are responding to these calls. You're not really calculating. The true cost so no matter how expensive it is. It's not really that expensive upfront. It is always going to cost you less than having the municipality or the department individual officers be sued And it costs you less in grief and sorrow and pain for the survivors of Of people who were killed. So i think i think it actually is a trend. I'm very hopeful that it's a trend and it's just smart. It's smart policing and it's good public safety. Let me just say one thing. You know a name that almost nobody knows greg long. Who's the acting head of. The boston polices happening on his watch. And he sort of under the radar after this dennis white fiasco of a month or so ago so good for him. Even an interim position implementing something that is so wise and so good. I we all think for the public. So little shoutout to a guy who's most people don't even know the name of so agree. I see holding things together. I think providing some good leadership..
