Non-Sequiturs: 06.09.15

* It’s the 800th Anniversary of the Magna Carta. Have you ever read it? Because it includes some stereotypically troubling thoughts on Jews. [St. Louis Post-Dispatch]

* The lawyer from the Lady Chatterley’s Lover obscenity trial is 100 years old. So… take that, “clean living.” [Daily Mail]

* Tennessee Law Review hosted a Third Amendment Symposium. Professor Reynolds waxes philosophic on whether the Third Amendment might limit government intrusiveness into domestic affairs in areas as diverse as computer spyware, “affirmative consent” laws, and childrearing. Sounds like one of them pinko commie “non-Originalist” readings to me. [Instapundit]

* In a sign of the times, there’s a new information service providing analysis of critical legal issues related to cybersecurity, data protection, and data privacy challenges. But since most lawyers still think “banning personal email” is the height of cybersecurity, it may be a bit advanced for you. [The Cybersecurity Law Report]

* Former Debevoise associate Elyssa Friedland has a new book titled, Love and Miss Communication (affiliate link) about a Biglaw associate fired for sending too many personal emails at work. As we just wrote before, that won’t be a problem at a lot of firms anymore. [Amazon]

* We talked about lawyers meditating, so now let’s talk about lawyers and taijiquan. [Katz Justice]

* Kudos to Lucosky Brookman LLP for raising over $155,000 for Save a Child’s Heart with its Second Annual Charity Golf Outing. [Lucosky Brookman LLP]

* Richard Hsu chats with Mark Lemley, Stanford Law professor and founder of Lex Machina, about playing video games. Something we understand here at ATL. [Hsu Untied]
