FRIDAY!

A U.S. District Court dismissed the lawsuit against the NYPD for alleged surveillance of Muslims as part of its anti-terrorism activities. The judge found that the plaintiffs lacked standing, since their claimed injuries appears traceable to the AP's decision to disclose the secret program rather than the program itself. The judge also found that even if the plaintiffs had standing, they could not prevail since it appeared that the NYPD targeted individuals on account of terrorism prevention, not on account of their religion. Lawgeeks, the short decision is here (PDF).

Even the New York Times is reporting that Obamacare is causing employers to cut part-time jobs, something the Obama administration insists is merely anecdotal. Of course, it took job cuts among the public sector to get the Times to pay attention to the issue, but at least the paper is covering it.

Ya'll have a good weekend.
