[Gordon & Rees] * We had some fun at the expense of a very predictable Norwegian prison escape the other day, but it’s worth recognizing an outlier for what it is — here’s a detailed look at Norway’s usually successful prison system. [New York Times] * With public defenders like these… An interpreter employed by the public defenders’ office scammed immigrants seeking bribes with promises to pull strings to avoid deportation.

[Adjunct Law Prof Blog] * A guy sat in prison for over 3 months after he completed his sentence because the system is as awful as it is incompetent. [Mother Jones] * If you’re looking for CLE and have tickets to New York Comic Con on Thursday, October 8, then here’s the panel for you. [NY Comic Con] * Most employers in New York City can no longer check credit history in making employment decisions. Time to hit up Saks for that shopping spree. [DLA Piper]
