Litigating for Liberty, Part 1Posted on August 10, 2012 | Type: In the News | Author: Clint Bolick
Want to make a difference in the fight for liberty? Consider law school. In no other arena can an individual have a greater impact for freedom. After all, the courts were intended to safeguard individual rights by holding the other two branches of government to their constitutional boundaries. And unlike politics, law tends to be black or white—you win or you lose—rather than shades of compromise. Look how dramatically cases like Brown v. Board of Education have changed the world.
Obama-care's IPAB flawedPosted on July 27, 2012 | Type: In the News | Author: Tom Patterson
Many Americans wonder how Obama-care can possibly work. How can the government insure 32 million additional people and provide everybody with all the health care they need without raising the deficit or spending gobs of new money?

When a judge tells you you're breaking the law, it's generally not a good idea to thumb your nose at her. Yet that's exactly what Phoenix is doing.
With Wild West Spirit, Tombstone Fights for its WaterPosted on June 23, 2012 | Type: In the News
Tombstone’s water system is as old as the city itself, and most of the parts that are functioning, which are few, were damaged last year by rocks and trees dragged downhill by runoff from the summer monsoons. The city set out to repair the system’s connections to three of the 25 springs to which it claims to have a right; connections to the other springs are inoperable or nonexistent.
