SeaWorld Doesn't Want Its Killer Whale Trainers Federally Protected From A Gruesome Death!!!

Filed under: Legal MattersFootballScary!Sea CreaturesWhalesAnimal CrueltyGIFs

killer whales federal government bars close contact with trainers seaworld objects orcas free wily blackfish death Tilikum

Everyone is entitled to their day in court!!!

Even companies like SeaWorld who oppose current federal regulations that protect trainers from deadly orcas!

Killer whales like Tilikum have been living up to their name for years, but when SeaWorld Orlando trainer Dawn Brancheau was killed on the job in 2010 the government finally decided end the madness.

After an investigation by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration concluded working conditions for whale trainers were simply too unsafe, the government barred close contact with these potentially dangerous creatures without some sort of barrier in between.

While this is good news for the friends, family, and children of current trainers who don't want to see their loved ones maimed or killed, it was apparently bad news for SeaWorld stockholders as it cramped the style of the Shamu-esque whale show so many ticket-goers paid to see.

Oh, wait. This is real life?! LOlz!!

Conrad Murray, the doctor convicted for the manslaughter of Michael Jackson, has a new cockamamie scheme he hopes could get him exonerated!

In 2011, the courts sentenced Conrad to a four year jail sentence after determining he was the man responsible for the King of Pop's Propofol overdose.

The now former doctor still insists they've got the wrong man, though. And he's convinced chemistry is his key for an early release!

Filed under: Legal Matters

Much like getting your fingerprints taken and saved on file, if you are arrested for a felony your DNA will be saved too.

The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals has ruled in a 2-1 decision that a 2004 California law requiring officials to collect DNA samples of criminals is constitutional because it is not an unreasonable search.

Since DNA evidence can be used to solve crimes, Judge Milan Smith wrote:

Eminem's gonna get paid!

A federal appeals court has found that Eminem's former production company F.B.T Productions LLC is entitled to royalties by Universal Music Group (UMG) for music downloaded over iTunes or sold as cellphone ringtones.

Last year, a federal jury ruled against F.B.T., however, the appeals court ruled on Friday that the contracts between UMG and F.B.T. "unambiguously applies to permanent downloads and master-tones," which entitles Eminem and his producers to a 50-50 split for recordings licensed to iTunes and other digital distributors.

This ruling could potentially affect how record labels and artists make financial deals in the future. Very inneresting!
