"This is one hundred eighty I'm Thomas Smith, and I will be doing a complete one eighty today. There's my allotted dad joke for the day. Yeah. Also, sorry. I have a cold. I'm gonna sound like crap, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But lots to talk about today. There's there's a few things that have really been bugging me. There's this Liam Niessen thing. And of course, as always as I say every time. Yes, it is about Liam Niessen partially. But it's also about our society as a whole, and it's the same with any of these me conversations, you know, the conversation blows up around the details of whatever the particular situation is the particular bad apology or awful, weird confession or whatever it is. And in the end, it's still the same societal problems in my opinion. And I think there are some things I have to say about this one that I hope will be useful. Maybe maybe we'll add to the conversation in a good way. We'll see. But then before that I wanted to talk about something. That's I if anything I guess, it's kind of a point toward the direction of conservative won't say that I would say, it's it's I want to clarify something in the news that it's it's a case of I think the left is not being entirely accurate in what's happening. So in that has to do with the tax return thing. So I I started seeing this my wife shared with me, you know, and I saw it around on Twitter and stuff people tweeting their tax refunds, and I should say at the outset. I think that tax Bill was horrible. I think Trump's tax plan was horrible. I'm against it. I'm absolutely opposed to it. So this isn't in any way to defend it. But when I saw people posting ham not getting a refund the Trump tax scam. I had a little bit of alarm bells go off because I'm like, well, that's not. What you know? My problem with the tax Bill is that it's giving back to many taxes not that. So I was a little confused. And I I was wondering what the situation was and didn't quite make sense to me because people might know by listening to me by now, my background is actually an accounting. I have a business degree I specialized in accounting. I worked as an accountant for while nice, which to more data oriented stuff and programming and stuff, but that's my career. But anyway, I heard that I thought that this can't be right? My problem with the Bill is that taxes are too low. And here's the thing. Like, I think they're also too low disproportionately it may be possible that people on the lower income brackets aren't getting enough back, and I thought okay that could be a possibility, but it's still I still know after looking into the details of the tax plan that something like only five percent of Americans will have increased tax burden under this plan. And Furthermore, I was. Pretty sure that those five percent based on the specifics of the plan are only going to be people with high incomes anyway. So I was finding a little confusing that there's this hashtag going on. And there's all kinds of people sharing their pictures of their tax refund and saying outs tax scam. We're paying more in taxes. And I was a little worried about that rhetoric because I see liberals jumping onto it. And I wanted to remind everybody like wait, we're four higher taxes for some people. So it's weird. I felt uncomfortable trying to latch onto and and signal boost an echo, the like, yeah, we should all be mad that if our taxes go up in the slightest it's like no people like me or people, you know, I'm in a two income household..

"Before the government shutdown. Yeah. Doesn't help that was just sworn in last week with the rest of the freshman class. But it was bittersweet because the cloud of the shutdown hung over what was supposed to be purely a celebration for House Democrats who are now back in the majority contest.

"Episode two hundred thirty six I'm your host Thomas Smith out over there's Andrew Torres. Hey, doing Andrew. I am fantastic. I'm really really excited about today's. Is it because people are still waiting with baited breath to hear the answer to whether or not a corporation can be pardoned. No, it is because we are going to reverse roles on today's episode because this is a question we're under which the legal analysts is pretty straightforward. But the musical analysis reminders expertise that I don't have. But my amazing co host does so super excited about this. I'm excited to finally play stairway.

And then we've got our main segment is going to be spirit versus Led Zeppelin spirit is a ban that you've probably never heard of and Led Zeppelin bend. You probably have heard of because really interesting case involving potential plagiarism there with Led Zeppelin stealing from spirit on the song. That's kind of obscure. But anyway, it had it I been overturned denied. And then like the well, Andrew will explain the legal ins and outs. But it it everyone thought it was a done deal. And then all of a sudden on appeal they figured out that the jury hadn't been instructed properly, so. It's going back. So really interesting case there, and I had an idea to maybe turn the tables on Andrew a little bit. And do like he did with UB. The supreme court a longtime back one of my favorite episodes where he took us all through the arguments on one side and on the other. I thought Ooh, I can try to do that with this spirit versus Led Zeppelin. So that's the goal. Hopefully, it'll work out. So there you have it. That's our show. What do you think? Should we get to it?

"They won thirteen to ten like this game this past Thursday. So, and we also know they might have the most talented straight-line runner in all the football on Zeke. You'll so like I get why the Cowboys run their team the way they do. I don't think Philly is built to run it in the same way. I also think Philly's what they've been through twelve games. They've been a five hundred team at every check point of the season. They were five hundred three or four games. They're five hundred through eight games. We're now through twelve games. They are five hundred you mentioned the schedule. They have been a good home team in a very poor road t. Him and three of their last four or on the road. Like, so there's a lot of reasons to believe that they are not anything other than what the evidence shows an average football team that won a championship last year. They're going to be some teams. We're gonna talk about Tom Brady and the patriots in what they do in the month of December that dentist who they are. And trying to duplicate that that's what I talking about without that. Right. There is more predictable. That's something that I can be willing to bet on compared to Philadelphia. I don't believe they have an identity, but for Philadelphia fans you have to be excited. The Bill Darren sproles back into the lineup to be able to see golden Tate can make some type of contribution this year that draft pick trade it for to give you some more plays within your offense. Those things would have to be encouraged, but their inability to build a run the football. It's going to hurt them and their offense of lying to me is not dominant. Even like Dow's we said they're a lot like Dallas. But they're not playing the Dallas offense of line. Give them a lot. Thomas Smith, the left tackle didn't play last week has been hurt. The last couple of weeks there line play is still a little bit spotty. So I just believe that right now the Cowboys are far more predictable in trying to repeat what they do. That Prescott is completing more passes in the outside throwing deep comebacks than we've ever seen at any point in his career. So you know, you got seven people in the box. You know, you got to build throat a ball outside to Gallup in Amari Cooper. And we've seen them make enough place for them to be able to get through. I think going to build do that in the month of December. And I don't believe Philadelphia had the faith that they'll be able to duplicate that run game in their offensive line would be to areas you're most concerned about the best. I would start sort. That's where on offense on the biggest problem with eagles is something. We haven't talked about this segment which is the back into their defense. They are the only starter left is Malcolm Jenkins, who's probably only closer to the back end of his career than front end of his career. They have been..

"When. They attempt to vote if they have not already submitted help America vote act ID or evidence their citizenship. Unacceptable form of ide- by giving it in person to a poll worker when they vote for the first time or sending a copy in the mail, if they're requesting absentee ballot or evidence of citizenship, if they're flagged as a non-citizen, so. Let's go that on that a little bit, right? Like, obviously putting forth. Why don't you show up at the polls and show ID as what the plaintiffs want here kind of shows the position that that were with respect to this. Right. Like, we know the deterrent effect of requiring people to show up with ide- at the polls. But that's what that's what the the the plaintiff parties. Right. Are. That's what the Democrats in this process are offering they're saying, hey, get rid of the cancellation if you're really really concerned than anybody who's flagged make sure they show up with an actual copy of their ID. And then a real person can look at this and go. Yeah. It says you're it says your Tom Smith your says here, you're Thomas Smith, your Thomas Smith. Okay. You can vote or if you've been flagged as potentially not a citizen show up with your okay Thomas Smith your citizen, you can vote. That's what they're request. I think by the time. This episode airs that we are likely to see the federal court rule against granting the injunction on I think they're going to they're going to rule against it on the basis of likelihood of success on the merits. And they're going to say, hey, look, this is an open question. They may show that this has disproportionate impact. But we cannot conclude as a matter of law right now that this is going to have a disproportionate impact on African Americans are protected classes under the Voting Rights Act. And that's where I think it's going to come out. So if that ruling has come out and you see their site, right? A win is you're you're required to show ID, which you know, I could see how Overson window. Yeah. Right. No. That's exactly that would be a win. Right. That will keep new voters on the rolls. As opposed to have them in this pending staff. Where people, you know, may not know and show up to vote, and it's like, oh, let sorry you're on the pending. So you don't get to vote. That's pending mean, you don't even get to vote. Because you don't get to vote until you get moved from pending to approved and so- pending means they've they're either they have or they're about to send out the request. That says there's a mismatch clear this up. But if you don't have that letter in you, haven't cleared it. But you're in the painting seems like, you know, okay for now will will so pending is just kind of a euphemism for you can't vote. There's that you've been taking your vote has gone. Yes. Correct. Pending decision to make you more on able to like I don't understand what the pending as well. Right, pending means pending further evaluation that you're you're you haven't been thrown in the trash you can do stuff to show that you can vote. But if you're in the pending file, and you show up to vote you will be denied. Well, that's horrible. So it sounds like even so you're saying without an injunction. It's it's almost like even though later on. Maybe they could prove that this is discriminatory. This is like a short term power grab by Republicans. Because by the time, it's all the dust settles. They will have gained an advantage from it. Right. Correct. Now, the merits of the lawsuit will be decided before the twenty twenty election. Right. So it's still worth fighting on those grounds. But in terms of getting out to vote in twenty eighteen I think they're going to successfully purge a number of first time voters from the voter rolls. I'd love I'd love to think that I'm wrong on this. What this means in practical terms is if if your in Georgia, and you have applied to vote, and you have not gotten a confirmation resubmit that application right go request call and ask our m I in the pending category. If you're in the pending category, they have to.

"Lohan welcomed. Opening arguments, seven, two hundred and eighteen. I'm Thomas Smith. That over there is Andrew Torahs. How're you doing? Andrew? M June. Great. How about you? Thomas just entering the hangover period of my point tasting. Still doing, oh, excited war, some deep diving that we're going to be doing. We've got some interesting stuff to talk about a UK cake. Shop I can whatever that is. I'm sure I can stop by when I'm in Manchester or I'll I'll I'll find a way. And net neutrality in California interesting to look at the states rights route, I guess for net neutrality, see how that works. And I guess we're talking stormy Daniels again. How could yeah, with, you know, whenever they're developments in opening arguments, favorite porn star stormy Dan's, we gotta cover it. Official porn star. Official official porn star opening arguments. That's exactly right. All right. Well, that's our show. Let's get to it. What do you say. I got. A bit over thing. I got icing. Got. Pull the candle in it Lord out nicely. Okay. You cake shop. I I don't know anything about them, but I'm flying blind on this one. What's going on. Modeling after the cake chefs we talk about here, are they. No. In fact, they are modeled after the shops that we talk about here. So I am equipping you as you are about to head into q. e. d. which actually you will have completed by the time this airs, but. With the story that that honors your trip to the United Kingdom and also honors the global descent into madness. So so here we go. All right. This involves Asher 's cake shop, which is a cake shop in Northern Ireland and in twenty fourteen a gay man named Gareth Lee who had previously bought cakes from the cake shop, but was not quote, personally known to the staff and quote, went in and utilized the cake shops, build a cake service. This is something that is not getting reported in the descriptions of the supreme court ruling that that just came down. So I think it's really, really important. I mean, we, you know, we've talked about this in these kinds of cases with intersectional. It's really, really important to get the facts. Act. So the Ayrshire cake shop has a Bill cake service in which customers could request particular images or inscriptions get iced onto a cake. There was a leaflet advertising service and examples of what you could do and critically, there were no restrictions contained in the advertisement regarding religious or political content, and you know you immediately see what happened, someone printed mountain kick. Yeah, exactly. No, he he worked for Zaka. She was at it again. He he, he worked for an organization called queer space, and so he went into the shop placed an order for the cake to be iced with his design, which was a a picture of the Sesame Street characters, Bert, and Ernie the queer space logo and the headline support gay marriage. The co owner of the cake shop a MRs MacArthur took the order and raised no objection at the time. And her testimony is quote because she wished to consider how to explain her objection and to spare Mr Lee, any embarrassment then very British. Yeah, but intriguingly she took his money, so so she took the money then over the weekend, decided that she could not in good conscience produce. With that slogan, so she should not refill re did not fill the order and then on Monday called him up and refunded the money apologized and returned the image for the kick. So. So those are the facts. And and I think it's really important to kind of drill down into a little bit because I think this is in the abstract, obviously a closer call than any of the masterpiece cake shop cases either the the one that went up or the one that is pending. Now that we've talked about because it does involve, you know, the actual specific placing of statement onto the kick. I still think that clearly falls on the side. Right? And so you know, just as Ramana case, we have any new listeners who haven't gone back and listen to our fabulous series on all of the masterpiece cake shop decis. I mean, essentially the the question the way it ought to be analyzed in the United States is about the interplay between antidiscrimination statutes that require you. If you're in a business that serves the public and you are in a state, not the federal government, sadly..

"Hello and welcome to opening arguments. This is two hundred four. I'm your host. Thomas Smith. That over there is Andrew Torres. Andrew, are you exhausted and outta breath from all the laps you've been doing around the office? The Andrew was right victory laps. Yeah, I've, I've been making the the Richard Nixon v for victory and yeah, no, we, we need to. Yesterday. I did it. I Nixon stolen from opening arguments. Take back the v for victory. It's it's where reclaiming a a time honored. This is we, we are. We're, we're now recording at our usual time for the Tuesday episode for episode, two, four, and and freaking news. Oh. L. you're gonna say what the breaking news was. Okay, I was I was setting you. That's what the poll. Packers screws Trump or was the other one. Breaking news. These are all be nice and well worn out by the time. People hear this all the. All the pecker jokes that everybody got tired of the four days since this. Yeah. So that was exactly what you had kind of talked about, right. Yeah, I was a, I was proud of us that we went one hundred and fifty five minutes yesterday and did not make a single pecker joke, so so we can. We can. We can break that we can bring Brian edit that one out. No, it even. I am surprised at how quickly this move, right? Like so the, let's let's do this for an analogy, right lake prosecutions are kind of like punctuated equilibrium, right? Like there are these rapid decision points that come up really, really quickly, and then there are long stretches, we know of investigation things. So you know, we've been urging caution on the overall Muller investigation of, hey, you know, these things move slowly, these things take time this. The flip side of that right yesterday, we told you that the allegations in the Cohen information regarding David pecker serving essentially as the lookout for Donald Trump as CEO of the National Enquirer that that pecker was the guy who found out about stormy Daniels and put Michael Cohen in touch with storm. Daniels lawyer, which is not something we knew before the that led me to say, I think you know, one of our takeaways was was watched pecker right? Like that's coming up next and and today I mean ten minutes prior to this record, we got the breaking news that pecker has been offered immunity. I have not seen the terms of his immunity deal. I'm going to continue to scour and look for it while we get on a special guest, but but my instant take on this. I said this on the away Twitter feed. This is the opposite of Michael Cohen, right? Like we spent a fair amount of time saying the Coen didn't get much of a deal yesterday and, and that seems to indicate that the prosecutors felt like they had an awful lot of leverage over co and I read this the exact opposite to to be out there with somebody who was characterized as. Having the level of involvement that that the pecker has in the co and information and to immediately offer him immunity strongly suggests that he has something or things that the Muller team desperately wants. And, and that's good news for us. Wow. Yeah. No, sorry. No, pecker jokes. Not making package. Okay. Yeah. In, you know, we're going to get rid allies in on here. I'm excited to talk to him again as always and we, you know, I also have to announce Zeke will the important as all the pecker news that he wasn't around for t, you know, this was kind of an impromptu thing. So you know, I just had to do that by now. The real reason is I just don't wanna be embarrassed by somebody on t t t be. So that's the real reason he wasn't there for the the question. No, I I wanna ask you before Randall joins us. I think that question that I, I wonder if. If you could tackle real quick, is the what's his name is the asshole. Okay. Is the Ben Shapiro who actually isn't really a Trump support to be fair, you know, months, I don't like him. He's at least not a Trump guy really. Although he's as a horrible conservative, so I don't. I don't know why he's not, but but anyway, he put up the kind of the defense and said, I'm surprised Trump isn't using the simple defense of, I pay porn stars all the time..

"These are all people who have said they're going to sue us or they have sued us. We think we have this affirmative defense under this safety act and we wanna know if we do and we want a single determination because right, we don't wanna have to relitigate this, you know if they're eight hundred parallel lawsuits, right? Yeah, we want to get this determined as a matter of law. And in fact, here's the relief that they've requested. Here's how they've described at the at the end of their complaint by the way should add because it names all the individuals individually. The first forty, six pages of this complaint are just jurisdictional allegations, right? It says, you know, defendant, Thomas Smith is on information belief, a resident of the state of Nevada who is injured or is a family member of someone who's injured in the Las Vegas massacre right? So I, it's fifty one pages long, but only the last five pages are actually allegations. So, oh, for listeners who go and read the stuff you can skip to page forty, seven. Here's what they. For they say, we want a declaration that the safety act precludes any finding of liability against plaintiffs, right? That is against Mandalay bay and its ownership group for any claim for injuries arising out of or related to paddock's mass attack the massacre without prejudice to defendant's rights to pursue claims against the seller under the act right. That is the contemporary services corporation, including to obtain proceeds of insurance that any such seller was required by the act to maintain. So in other words, they're not saying the victims can't get paid. They're just saying it looks to go elsewhere. Right? Yeah. You gotta sue the security company? Yep. Now, could there be some sort of gross negligence thing? Like if there was some reason? I don't. You know, obviously, I don't know all the details of the case, but if there were hypothetically, some reason that Mandalay bay was negligent in a way that that you know would have kind of. Violated that how that laws supposed to work like the security company takes on the risk, but if you kind of blow it, you know, like Mandalay bay leaves a gate open somewhere in like, you know, is there something like that where they could still theoretically be at fault? So the answer to that is maybe. Because the act itself does not provide for those sorts of exceptions. And the act itself has been litigated so infrequently that there is no case law applying, but there are a number of common law doctrines immediately that would apply, right? So the first that that that would apply is something called the doctrine of unclean hands. Right? That says, if you have done something wrong in connection with this, then you cannot rely upon the the, the affirmative defense that you know, this is precluded under the statute because you can't take advantage of that benefit because you've done something wrong in the idea is the law is not meant to protect wrongdoers, right? So so that sort of the first thing that would come to mind. I also think you could make the argument that you have not been an authorized purchaser. Of the qualified anti-terrorism technology. If you then are guilty of gross negligence on top of You that. know, those are the the to immediate arguments that I would make. But the answer to your question is no, there's nothing in the statute, but so nothing in the statute allows for that. But you're thinking these, these common law doctrines would maybe make it so that a judge might, you know, make make that kind of adjustment, but there's not enough case history to know. Yeah, that's that's exactly right. And look like in this declaratory judgment action..

"Case like this is not a scenario where that breaks down cleanly on ideological lines in in reaching an outcome because even liberal justices generally liked uphold the expectation of individuals who engage in contract and so that's where when i look at in the two things that the kind of sway me the other way are obviously are interrelated right are the question of how do we interpret this contracts clause and in fact in history how has the supreme court interpreted the contracts clause and they've read it as a more as a more narrow restriction on the power of legislatures and i would want to keep that up right i would want to maintain the ability for us to say look we can affect change both at the legislative level and at and through the judiciary should it be you know should you have to meet the criteria you should absolutely have to meet the criteria right should should you be able to blot obligations on a contract out of existed no you shouldn't right so for example if the if the minnesota statute here prevented you from re designating your exwife right if you know if it just said nope sorry like we you know i don't know 'em are as getting in control the minnesota legislature on are like nope exwives get nothing never even if you want them to yeah i agree with that that that that now you've gone too far but but i don't know that i would calibrate the the question of whether they can do that all the way back at the at the presumption level well interesting now good good points i think it is close but i see what you mean where you couldn't sign onto gorsuch language is wanna clarify justice thomas smith did not use that same language in his ruling just so we're all clear yet when so when is your next fishing date with with neil gorsuch your new bff the important thing is that i was right times in a row the important thing now i did need the the money home help i guess but still but still okay that was fun really cool segment enjoyed that thank you so much and now we are going to answer a question from twitter user martin at the.

"Hello and welcome to series whereas only this episode of one hundred thirty i'm your host thomas smith right few things before we get into it that last episode atheists and lawyers foxholes i was surprised i suppose i shouldn't be but i was surprised by how much reception warm reception that gotta get a lot of emails i think there are ton of military next military atheist listeners that i sometimes don't think about because that's not a demographic that i am or you know it's not anybody i know really but then when i do an episode like that i hear from a bunch of people bunch of really cool people by the way thank you so much if you emailed me and and the sense of most of the emails was well yeah this and it's actually tends to be worse than we were able to get to in that limited time i mean one of the biggest complaints i've heard from atheist servicemembers is that during church time or during whatever you know worship time vegas stuck with all the at work i think we touched on that a little but i just received so many emails that really reinforce that like yeah you know i'd be cleaning latrines while everyone was doing church because that's kind of how it works and it's unfair and a lot of people don't seem to care about it but you know it is unfair it's it's a it's a form of violation of separation of church and state to have people be doing you know a certain demographic of people a certain religious view or non religious view as it were if people have to do more grunt work or worse work whatever you wanna say because they don't believe in something i mean that's unconstitutional especially in the military where everybody there is already a self selected patriotic in the good sense of the word you know willing to serve their country for whatever their reasons are i mean that's already a group of people who you would hope if they're protecting the constitution you'd hope the constitution could protect them.

"Cert it now you're saying yourself andrew that can't be right every case i've ever seen heard of every movie i've ever seen every show on tv like you gotta be able to put somebody's email on right yeah well there's a there's there accepts there there are and all of the emails that's the key that need to come in in the course of trial you must justify as an exception to the hearsay we'll because again remember like the point of the hearsay rule is don't put on a statement that says oh exit why put x on the stand right that that's the whole idea of our criminal justice system of our of our civil justice system as well is put x on the stand that way the other side can cross examine x so if i put an email on that says you know thomas smith wrote this email at this particular time then i don't have to put thomas on the stand to testify i can just put the email in and then the other side doesn't have the benefit of cross examining you and trying to figure out what you meant by that email so how do i get those emails there are two main ways in in which we admit hearsay exceptions to the hearsay rule or at again the only people who care about whether it's an exception or whether it's defined outside the boundaries of hearsay out our our law student listeners but since and.

"On earning your listening to serious enquiries own and two hello and welcome the series inquiries only this is absurd '98 i'm your host thomas smith okay well actually i i had planned to talk about something today and then also do voice but then when i went in looked at voice mails they were really compelling asserted recording and you know me i got carried away so it's it's going to be mainly voicemail but that's only because my callers and my listeners are so intelligent and i really really love interacting with your thoughts with your opinions with your calls it's fun it's engaging and i like it so i'm gonna do that but i just wanted to say a couple things first first off as regards monday's episode there are some voicemails about it and i was i will use those to make some commentary on that so look forward to that later on it was it was an interesting episode got a lot of reaction i think most people liked that i did it but some people didn't and i want to be fair to those people i respect where they're coming from uh but i'm gonna talk a little bit about that later but before that i just wanted to talk for a few minutes about the fact that republicans really just don't care about you i mean they re this is this is something you know someone asked me and i i don't think i ended up using it as a question or anything because i i don't want to talk about myself too much in general i to talk about issues and stuff but someone did ask me they said oh hey uh i think it was on twitter they're like well i'm interested to hear that you used to be republican and now your liberal it'd be interesting to hear more about that and i've i thank you for that question i d i didn't want to talk about it but i think this is actually a good example of part of it one aspect of it is having realised that there the republicans are not about you they don't care about you look there they they have found ways to make people agree with what they want to do which won't benefit them they they they make people vote against their bed theirself.
