AT&T Maintains Call Database For the DEA Going Back To 1987

spartacus_prime Re:Why was this even posted? (141 comments)

Attorney here, I've seen more subpoenas issued by fellow attorneys than I've ever seen issued by a judge. Example: If a bankruptcy trustee wants to depose a debtor for one reason or another (or if a creditor wants to do the same), they'll issue a subpoena of their own accord. I've even sent subpoenas myself on occasion. This is usually occurring when the matter is not quite serious enough to bother a judge for his/her signature.

I had that problem after flashing the latest Gapps build. What I did that fixed the problem was deleting my Google account from my phone and wiping all that data out, and then reinstalling it. My apps updated like normal.

Is New York City Ready For Digital Voting?

spartacus_prime Re:Want a higher turnout? (93 comments)

The problem isn't necessarily lack of meaningful choice (although that is tragic in and of itself), the problem is that of apathy. Diddy's entreaties notwithstanding, a lot of people don't believe that every vote counts, and that may be a good reason why people don't show up to the polls on election day. Or they just don't care. Or they are deliberately not voting as a matter of protest (whatever that may be).

LulzSec's Raynaldo Rivera, a.k.a. 'neuron,' Gets One-Year Prison Term

spartacus_prime Re:$600,000 (105 comments)

Bankruptcy attorney here. Without reaching the merits of discharging criminal restitution, you do not necessarily run the risk of losing everything you have in a Chapter 7 (and you definitely don't in a Chapter 13). From my experience, the only time an asset is in jeopardy is if there is equity and your attorney didn't take the requisite exemptions. This rarely happens, however -- most people get to keep their houses (usually underwater), their cars, and most other things. YMMV however.

EU To Vote On Suspension of Data Sharing With US

spartacus_prime Re:Kettle = Black (330 comments)

Spying on civilians that pose no threat to the United States (to say nothing of spying on American citizens) is immoral, if not illegal.

spartacus_prime Re:Ouch! (330 comments)

yes, but to deal with that problem would be too difficult for most, so it's easier to blame a whistleblower.
