Stick to U.S. law or risk impeachment, Rep. Tom Feeney is warning the Supreme Court. The Florida Republican and fellow House Judiciary Committee member Bob Goodlatte, R-Va., plan next week to propose a resolution that judicial decisions should not be based on foreign precedents. The lawmakers say they have 50 co-sponsors for the resolution, which will be non-binding, though Feeney warned that justices who flout it risk “the ultimate remedy … impeachment” … Prosecutors came up two Hells Angels short of an attempted murder conviction in Ohio this week. Joseph Casalicchio, 56, had been accused of hiring the bikers to kill Cuyahoga County Common Pleas Judge Kathleen Ann Sutula, whose home was riddled with gunfire two months after she sentenced Casalicchio to prison. But police never nabbed the alleged gunmen, so the case fell to the testimony of prison snitches. An unimpressed jury found Casalicchio guilty only of intimidation … The UCLA School of Law landed a $4 million gift from the San Manuel Band of Mission Indians. The school will use the donation — likely the biggest ever from a tribe to a school — to open a tribal learning and community center. So far, the award, which came from gaming profits, has generated none of the controversy that attended the University of Connecticut Law School’s plans to solicit donations from casino-owning tribes … An attorney turned human rights activist was one of two U.S. civilians killed in an Iraqi checkpoint ambush this week. Fern Holland, 33, had advocated for Iraqi women’s rights and helped to author the women’s rights section of the new Iraqi constitution. Aware that she made a visible target, the former Oklahoma attorney expressed little fear, telling a friend, “If I die, know that I’m doing precisely what I want to be doing.” – Lori Patel
