On Tuesday, the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals reversed a lower court ruling that had dismissed Mr. Stauffer's case saying he didn't have standing to bring it. "Every plaintiff who brings one of these cases is a private attorney general who is doing a service to the United States, and I'm doing the same," says Mr. Stauffer, a lawyer in Roseland, N.J. Brooks Brothers and a lawyer who represents it in the case didn't respond to requests for comment. The way Mr. Stauffer calculates it, the liability could be huge. Brooks Brothers had erroneously marked 120 different styles of ties, which [suite...]

Federal Judge Halts Planting of GM Sugar Beets For Now
The Court also struck down another major argument that Defendants’ Groups were hanging their hat on: economic consequences. The Court found that because the Ninth Circuit position with respect to remand without vacatur is limited to serious environmental injuries, it is not clear whether economic consequences is a factor a court may consider in environmental cases. In addition to seeking an invalidation and vacation of APHIS’ deregulation decision, plaintiffs also sought an injunction that would have also banned the growing of the crops. Being bound by a recent Supreme Court [suite...]

So in essence, if you were a liberal voter circa 2008, you should have had two reasons to never worry about this scenario: Either Obama would discontinue rendition or else a left-wing court would make him suffer the consequences. Surprise. By a six-to-five vote, the United States Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, reversing an earlier decision, dismissed a lawsuit against Jeppesen Dataplan Inc., a Boeing subsidiary accused of arranging flights for the C.I.A.’s “extraordinary rendition” program, as it is known. The American Civil Liberties Union filed the case on behalf of five [suite...]

Sights on Pennsylvania: Appeals Court Effectively Blocks Hazleton ...
The Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia handed down its ruling today that states federal law largely pre-empts states and local municipalities from enacting their own laws to deal with local issues as a result of illegal immigration.

"It is ... not our job to sit in judgment of whether state and local frustration about federal immigration policy is warranted.

But some of the government's trial-court success on Enron has unraveled in the appellate courts. In 2006, for example, the Fifth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals overturned the fraud and conspiracy convictions of Mr. Brown and the other defendants from Merrill, which was purchased in January 2009 by Bank of America Corp. The appellate court upheld Mr. Brown's conviction for perjury and obstruction of justice in connection with the Enron investigation. As a result of the appellate ruling, Mr. Brown and the three other Merrill defendants were released from prison at various points in 2006. In [suite...]

Akathisia - Crime and Consequences Blog
On Thursday, the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 1st Circuit heard arguments in Shuman v. Spencer, a habeas corpus case in which a man convicted of double homicide is seeking a new trial, alleging ineffective assistance of counsel. The appellant, Robert Shuman, claims his trial lawyer failed to raise the defense that he killed two business associates because his ingestion of Zoloft caused a drug-induced state of agitation called akathisia. The "deference" standard applicable on federal habeas corpus should be more than sufficient to reject this claim at the present stage of the [suite...]

Second, plaintiff had the right to formulate consistent litigation strategy because “choices made before the PTO have consequences in this court.” This case is significant in what it adds to the Federal Circuit’s recent precedential Order in Deutsche Bank, which was silent on the issue regarding patent reexamination. Judge Thynge recognized the key differences between patent prosecution and patent reexamination, such as the inability to broaden claims in reexamination and the importance of maintaining consistent arguments across the two parallel proceedings. Relying on Deutsche [suite...]

Français Inductance www.tool-tool.com
La définition la plus courante d'inductance propre est la suivante : La surface circonscrite par un circuit électrique parcouru par un courant I est traversée par le flux du champ magnétique (appelé autrefois flux d’induction) . L’inductance L du circuit électrique est alors définie comme le rapport entre le flux embrassé par le circuit et le courant : Il est important de préciser que le flux en question est celui produit par le courant I et non celui provenant d'une autre source (courant, aimant, etc.). Malgré sa popularité, cette définition présente deux inconvénients. Le [suite...]

The EEOC and the Court - JDs Rising
I recently came across a DC Circuit case, which stated that an employee, if dissatisfied with the EEOC result, before appealing or refiling their claims in district court, that employee may accept the results of the winning claims and pursue the losing claims in court. Even though this case comes to us from the DC Circuit, it certainly helps to set the precedent that not all is doomed after a resolution of the case. Or, will attorneys be concerned that the case may just never die? The DC Circuit case is Payne v. Salazar, No. 09-5291 (D.C. Cir. Sept. 7, 2010). The three judge panel [suite...]

The Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals reversed, holding that the discrimination was completed when the test was scored and discovered when the applicants learned the results (i.e., more than 300 days before plaintiffs filed the charge). The U.S. Supreme Court unanimously reversed the Seventh Circuit. The Court found that a plaintiff who does not file a timely charge challenging the adoption of a hiring practice may file a claim challenging the application of the practice as long as each of she alleges each of the elements of a disparate-impact claim (i.e., that the employer uses a [suite...]

In a decision with implications for royalty accounting, and the publishing industry in general, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals recently ruled that rapper Eminem’s production company was entitled to 50% of his record label’s revenue from digital sales. The issue in F.B.T. Productions v. Aftermath Records was whether a digital download was a “sale” or a “license.” Like the music industry, publishers have taken the position that digital downloads should be accounted for as sales, not licenses. Typically, the royalty rate paid for subsidiary rights revenue is split 50/50 between [suite...]
