Welcome to Law.com’s Midweek Recess, in which we round up some tasty tidbits from the week’s legal news cycle. We’ll be here every Wednesday, so grab a cup of coffee and take a little break. It’s all downhill to the weekend from here.

Life’s Tough. Get a Helmet - It’s graduation season, but the U.S. Supreme Court seems disinclined to get involved in the festivities.
