Remember that marijuana joint that cost Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. $900,000? The price has been reduced to $100,000. While Chavez was willing to serve the suspension, he and his team viewed the fine as excessive and his lawyers, Don Campbell and Colby Williams, were preparing a lawsuit against the commission over the size of the fine, believing that it violated the United States constitution's eighth amendment, which bars excessive fines. They had been in negotiations with the commission to reduce the amount of the fine, which the commission was willing to do, especially after a May 11 decision by the World Anti-Doping Agency to revise its policy on marijuana use which increased the threshold for what constitutes a positive test. Under the new rules, Chavez would not have tested positive.

Sheldon Adelson went to great lengths this week to keep cameras out of the courtroom, even hiring Harvard University law professor Alan Dershowitz to argue his case, but the American casino star’s desperate anti-camera measure—which he claimed was for safety reasons—was an undeniable flop. Although Judge Bare didn’t publicly comment on whether Adelson’s security concerns had merit, he took the unusual step of forgoing a ruling from the bench in favor of requesting that Donald Campbell, the prevailing attorney for the media outlets, read some of his commentary: “What better way to demonstrate to the public that its courts are fair and just than to say to the public, ‘Come and view the proceedings yourself and judge for yourself,’” Campbell said.
