Alliance Defending Freedom: It’s days away: The Supreme Court’s marriage decision is expected to come down on June 29.
New York Times: “A man whose conviction on child pornography charges won him an unusual champion — the trial judge, Jack B. Weinstein — was sentenced on Thursday to five years in prison, the minimum sentence required by law. Even then, Judge Weinstein, of Federal District Court in Brooklyn, was compassionate toward the defendant, allowing him to remain free for two more months, and dismissive of the government’s efforts to get a longer sentence.”
Law.com: “Eastern District of New York Judge Jack B. Weinstein’s second attempt to order a new trial for a man convicted of possession and receipt of child pornography has been rebuffed by the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals . . . Weinstein had ruled last October that a 2009 circuit decision reducing the number of counts of receipt and possession of child pornography made Polouizzi’s insanity defense potentially more viable and, therefore, a new trial was required.”
