Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
Guess what day it is! It's Cinco De Mayo!
Here at FindLaw, we'll celebrate with a round-up of all our best Cinco de Mayo posts. As with so many public holidays in this country, the celebration starts out serious with a remembrance of Mexican heritage and independence and deteriorates to drinking, partying, and more drinking.
So, this round-up will do the same:
The Serious Stuff
Diversity in the legal profession enriches it. This post celebrates up-and-coming attorneys of Hispanic heritage.
Two students were asked to remove their American flag t-shirts and bandanas on Cinco De Mayo. The students claim it's a violation of their right to free speech. The school claims it's a disruption in a school with a large Mexican-American student population. Who's rights triumph?
In a follow up to the last article, according to the courts, the school wins. The right to free speech is not absolute and can be restricted if it is likely to cause substantial disruption.
The Fun Stuff
It may seem impossible, but you can have too much fun on Cinco De Mayo. Don't cross the line though. Follow these seven tips to avoid waking up with handcuffs on May 6th.
You shouldn't drink and drive on any day. However, the festivity of Cinco De Mayo may tempt you. Want to avoid a Cinco de Mayo DUI? Here's how.
Don't tempt fate and put others in danger. The police will be out in force to catch partying drunk drivers. Subject to some regulations, DUI checkpoints are legal. Don't get caught drunk in one.
Celebrating at a bar or a park is often more fun than celebrating at home. But, you have to deal with all those pesky long lines or even the lack of public bathrooms. Tough out the lines, or wait until you get home because getting fined or jailed for public tinkling is a total party pooper.
If the party gets out of hand, and you do get into legal trouble, our experienced abogados are here to help. Have a happy, fun and safe Cinco De Mayo.
