Paul and Mae are in the studio with Attorney Ken Rosenfeld to discuss the legality and liability of topics that are making headlines.
Ken first answers questions about the Pokemon Go game. Safety has become an issue because criminals can use the game to lure people places, and there have even been robberies linked to the game. Mae asks, is Nintendo liable for these crimes?
Rosenfeld says they will be liable on certain lawsuits, but the bottom line is that Nintendo is making $9 billion dollars with this game. If they have to pay thousands, even millions, of dollars on lawsuits, it won't come close to their profit line.
Paul switches gears by acknowledging Supreme Court Justice Ginsberg's disparaging remarks on Donald Trump. Now, she's retracting her comments.
Rosenfeld says it is beyond irresponsible of her to make those statements, as her entire job is based on being fair and impartial. He calls it "election tampering". Supreme Court judges are not allowed to make comments about candidates as it goes against their code of ethics. He calls it "baffling", and says it affects the entire election, and compromises her on future court cases that involve presidential administration and law making.
