The articles contained in this website are provided for informational purpose only, and are not legal advice on any subject matter. In large part, this website was established for the benefit of readers of my syndicated newspaper column, “You and the Law,” who have wanted to find older stories.

Over the years, laws change, and what was lawful last year may not be today. For that reason, and safety’s sake, never reach a legal decision solely after reading these, or any other articles, but to consult an attorney who handles the area of the law you are concerned about.

Information you find here is provided on an “As Is, Information Only” basis and has no warranties of any kind attached to it.  As many of these stories are years old, laws cited cannot be seen as valid today without proper research. But the stories illustrate issues which are in so many ways, timeless, part of the fabric of the society in which we live.
