But for his devoted owner in Brentwood, a male tabby named Pumkin was well worth the tens of thousands of dollars it took to save his life and restore some of his mobility. Now a state appeals court has issued a first-of-its-kind decision in California, ruling that whoever shot Pumkin can be required to pay his medical expenses."

California Supreme Court to "Pimp Your Ride"? At 1 p.m. eastern time today, the Supreme Court of California is scheduled to issue its ruling in People v. Zambia, a case that presents the following questions:
(1) Does the offense of pandering require the specific intent to encourage another person to become a prostitute?; and

(2) Can a defendant be convicted of pandering for offering to act as a pimp for a woman who appears to be already working as a prostitute?

Once the decision is posted online, you can access it via this link.

Update: By a vote of 5-2, today's ruling of California's highest court does not appear to contain good news for pimps.
