With every iteration of iOS, Apple tweaks their software a little, but for the most part, the default lineup of apps remains unchanged since launch. For a lot of us, these apps just aren’t cutting it anymore. Here are the best apps to replace them.
The design and function of many of Apple’s apps is beginning to feel a bit stale, and many people are growing dissatisified with the experience as a whole.

A judicial ethics panel has concluded that there is nothing illegal or unethical about judges displaying license plates identifying their office, but whether use of the plates are appropriate or advisable is a matter still under study by the Commission on Judicial Conduct.
The Advisory Committee on Judicial Ethics last week issued Opinion 12-141 in response to an inquiry on whether it is ethically acceptable for a judge to have a specialty license plate that identifies his or her occupation. It noted that in a prior opinion (see 07-213) the committee advised that judges can display a license plate that identifies him or her as a member of a judge’s association.
“ In resolving a central question presented by these appeals, we hold that courts must
evaluate the adequacy of an IEP prospectively as of the time of the parents’ placement

considering evidence explicating the written terms of the IEP.”

Specifics of the program announced in May were eagerly awaited by law schools, public interest groups, bar associations and other members of the bar. They were announced by Lippman at a press conference at New York University School of Law.
The first-in-the-nation requirement will take effect immediately for first- and second-year law students, who will have up to 34 months to fulfill the mandate. Current third-years are exempt.

Braun observed that Justice Edward Lehner had initially ruled in the plaintiffs’ favor inLarabee v. Governor of State of New York, 20 Misc 3d 866 (2008), and ordered that judges receive retroactive pay. But Braun said that the Court of Appeals’ ruling onLarabee and two other cases had superseded that holding (NYLJ, Feb. 24, 2010).
He quoted the Court of Appeals as saying that “whether judicial compensation should be adjusted, and by how much, is within the province of the Legislature.”
Braun was assigned to the case after Lehner retired.
