12

Nearly 10 years after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled anti-sodomy laws unconstitutional in Lawrence vs. Texas, 12 states still have them on the books.

 

37

A professor claims his former lover/ research assistant sent a picture of his genitals to his wife and 37 associates — and he’s suing her for defamation. Just one more reason why sexting is never a good idea.

 

82%

What the buck? Female lawyers and judges earn 82 percent of what their male counterparts make, according to a report from The New York Times blog The Upshot.

 

$38.4 million

The amount that one of Samsung’s damages experts says the company owes Apple if Samsung is found to have infringed Apple’s patents. Apple’s damages expert named a figure over $2 billion.

88.6%

The percentage of Columbia Law School’s 2013 graduates who found full-time law jobs that were not paid for by the school by itself. That’s more than any other school, according to a trove of data released by the ABA on how last year’s graduates are faring in the job market. But don’t tell that to the folks at Whittier Law School, which rounds out the bottom of the list. More than half of that school’s graduates were unemployed or underemployed nine months after graduation.
