Non-Sequiturs: 07.15.15

* Doesn’t the increasingly bloated Republican presidential primary field seem like a plot from Veep rather than real life? Well, take a break from the world’s insanity and break down the election law quandary from the season finale of the hit show. [Law.com] * Spoiler alert: the performance art defense doesn’t work. [Dealbreaker] * Good news for New York Bar Exam takers — don’t stress about grabbing lunch on the day of the exam. [Custom Gourmet] * This… is not going to end well. China arrested more than 100 human rights lawyers for inciting trouble. [Christian Science Monitor] * I think it’s entirely possible Harper Lee never intended to publish “Go Set A Watchman” and that makes me hesitant to read the novel, but Harvard Law School professor Randall Kennedy’s call to “abandon the immature sentimentality ingrained by middle school lessons about the nobility of the white savior” has me itching to buy the book. [New York Times] * Speaking of the incredibly sketchy circumstances under which Harper Lee’s novel was published, maybe it’s time to blame the lawyer? [New Republic] * Remember that viral video about cat-calling on NYC streets from last year? Yeah, the woman featured is suing the makers of the video (along with Google, YouTube, and TGI Fridays). Only problem? She got nothing in writing. [Slate] * I sure hope no attorneys were sucked into this M&A fraud. [Forbes] * OIL AND HEAVY WATER FOR EVERYBODY — a take on the Iran deal. [Breaking Energy]
