Abstract:
Sidney Harr has championed the case of Crystal Magnum and former District Attoryney Michael Nifong. Magnum's case drew national attention when she accused the 2006 Duke lacrosse team of raping her after she was hired to dance. Nifong filed charges with the North Carolina Attorney General on her behalf which were later dropped due to insufficient evidence. Now Harr has made it a personal mission to right these wrongs but his defense of Magnum may hurt her defense in her current court case.

Abstract:
\"In June, policy analysts at the RAND Corporation determined that the 14 states that turned down Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act were making a giant mistake. The 14, RAND said, would lose $8.4 billion a year in federal funds while denying 3.6 million of their residents--the working poor--a chance to obtain affordable health insurance.\" The KAISER Corporation estimated that accepting the money would create 37,000 new health care jobs in NC. However, Governor Pat McCrory turned down the money. Among those who advised it was Dr. Aldona Woos, Secretary of NCDHW. The state's taxpayers will now be saddled with the payment of the lost billions. Meanwhile, WRAL-TV in Raleigh reported that Woos had handed out $1.7 million in pay raises to 280 staffers, many with \"no career of educational experience for the jobs they hold.\"
