Good luck!

I tried a case that lasted the entire month of February. It was a court, not jury, trial, and we are still waiting for a verdict.

Re: Jussie Smollett charges dropped

Should people be upset? As the prosecutor points out, it was a nonviolent crime. I’ve found one similar case that ended in probation. The cops made constant leaks to the press during the investigation. 16 felonies definitely seemed excessive to me. And he’s been publicly outted as a liar and his ca...

Re: Michael Avenatti

Does this mean things like Medicare, Social Security, and unemployment? Does that mean his employees aren't entitled to benefits because technically they didn't pay (even though they thought they did)? Once the taxes are withheld from the employees' paychecks, the employees get credit for it. If th...

Re: Michael Avenatti

Didn't calculate per se - just did a very rough eyeball purely on the dollar amounts, without looking at aggravating or mitigating factors, etc. So more a guess than calculation. That said, probably about 3-5 in Cali and 7ish in NY. Totally separate acts at core of each, so if convicted on both the...

Re: CHRISTOPHER BRUCE: The Mighty Spork

I'm still trying to figure out why/how this is even in Federal court and why they didn't kick it back to state jurisdiction. This all started in state court, when Sporky's wife lost custody of her child (not Sporky's biological child, but they were married at the time of conception, so that makes t...

Re: Soto v. Bushmaster Firearms International

The Court's opinion is lengthy, but readable, and provides the foundations for CUPTA and PLCAA. Footnotes cite the Congressional Record to support the CUPTA exception theory. This was drafted with a potential U.S.Supreme Court Appeal in mind. I haven't read the opinion yet, but I'd nonetheless bet ...

At any given time, roughly half the population of Israel opposes the policies of its current government. But you can criticize Israeli policies without s...

Re: Sexual Assault at Hacienda Healthcare Facility

But lets say that nine months prior to the birth there were only two male staffers, Smith and Jones, and no male visitors. There still is not probable cause to seize either Smith's or Jones' DNA because the police cannot show with respect to Smith that it is probable that evidence of a crime would ...

The venue paragraph too (also) has its own severability clause. THAT is why Moore loses this motion to transfer. The venue clause ("all disputes shall be litigated in New York") has a severability clause saying that, even if the rest of the contract is void, that clause stands. So, to keep the case...
