    * Schlitz is the beer that made Milwaukee famous, and now it’s the beer that makes judicial elections deeply problematic. [The Guardian]

    Morning Docket: 02.17.23

    * Fox doesn’t own the Discovery Network, but discovery now owns Fox News! See… it’s a Rule 26 joke. [Law360]

    * There’s a lot of panic that the Supreme Court will fundamentally destroy the internet as we know it, just because they’ve already destroyed voting rights, reproductive rights, and the Second Amendment as we knew them.

    * Allen & Overy becomes first firm to go all in on ChatGPT style tech announcing that it’s working with Harvey. [Legal Futures]

    * Kari Lake’s lawyers get slapped with bar complaints because… obviously. [NBC]
