A blog hosting service for sources

Technologist and the founder of blogging, Dave Winer, blogged this week that if he were the CEO of The New York Times he would start a blog hosting service, with Times branding. People would know, per Winer, that this is blog space, not editorial space. Blogs would be sources, from which the Times editorial people would be encouraged to quote. Winer would also recruit people whose ideas were valuable enough to be otherwise quoted in the Times to begin to blog – or at least offer them a ...

Business Ownership: Transfer of a Fictitious Name and Debts

My question involves business law in the state of: PA My father had a registered fictitious name and passed 5 years ago. I would like to transfer ownership of that name to me so I can use it for my consulting business. I do not know if he had any debts related to this business entity. Upon his death he had no will and no property so was insolvent. Is there a risk of debts being transfered to me by filing the required paperwork to transfer ownership of the entity? If so, how could I resesrc...

Parking Tickets: Can I Fight This Parking Ticket in Chicago

My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Chicago, Illinois I recently got a parking ticket and wish to contest it. There was no "No Parking" sign anywhere near where I was parked; in fact, there's a stump where a sign used to be. I believe this ticket is unfair and would like to fight it. However, I do not own the vehicle that was cited (I borrowed it from my girlfriend). When I went online to request a contest, it required that you declare that you're the registered owner of ...

Drug Possession: How to Request Postponement and What to Do Beyond

My question involves criminal law for the state of: New Jersey I was in an Atlantic City casino and accidentally left my bag somewhere. Security took it and searched through it and found about 1 gram of marijuana and the bowl I used which counts as paraphernalia. Unfortunately the charges don't appear to differentiate between 1 gram and 40. When I went to claim my bag I was arrested and banned from the property for life. My main priority is to be allowed back into the casino (I'm a poker pro and...

Legislation filed to abolish driver surcharges

Yesterday, Texas Senate State Affairs Committee Chairwoman Joan Huffman and House Appropriations Committee Chairman John Zerwas filed companion bills which appear to be the leadership-driven abolition proposal for the Driver Responsibility Program (DRP) that will be the main focus this session. SB 918 and HB 2048 aren't perfect, but they're certainly headed in the right direction. The bills suggest an array of new funding sources for trauma hospitals, most of which are less objectionable than t...

"Accommodations that would seem unusual at another office seem perfectly reasonable to the employees at Auticon."

"At the Culver City office, overhead lights bothered one or two colleagues so much that everyone agreed to work without artificial lights, so that often, by the end of the day, they are all working in pitch darkness, rectangles of soft, bright light from their computers illuminating their faces. Absences, in general, are not encouraged, but they are accepted as a cost of doing business with a population that often experiences depression. Managers adjust, within reason, to their employees’ bounda...

Invention-Theft Charges against Goodyear Revived by the Federal Circuit

by Dennis Crouch Coda Development v. Goodyear Tire & Rubber (Fed. Cir. 2019) Coda and Goodyear cooperated in a project to commercialize self-inflating tire technology invented by the CEO of Czech-based Coda (Hrabal).  Coda shared its information as well as functional prototypes with Goodyear representatives, including Robert Benedict.  At the meeting Benedict photographed the prototype without permission (after asking to be left alone for a moment).  All of this sharing was done under a non-disc...

Lawyers’ E-Discovery Competence Improving, Judges in Survey Say

The majority of federal judges believe that the lawyers who appear before them show an adequate level of knowledge and expertise in e-discovery matters, according to a recently published survey. Even so, most judges say they have had to take affirmative action, such as issue a warning or require additional conferences, to get lawyers to address an e-discovery problem. These are among the findings of Judges Survey 2019, an e-discovery survey of 264 sitting and retired federal judges. The survey w...

"Not capable of or liable to sin; exempt from the possibility of sinning or doing wrong."

I'm looking up "impeccable" because I'm reading the statement released by lawyers for Jussie Smollett:"Mr. Smollett is a young man of impeccable character and integrity who fiercely and solemnly maintains his innocence and feels betrayed by a system that apparently wants to skip due process and proceed directly to sentencing."The quote in the post title is the OED's definition of that very strong word "impeccable." I wonder how much the lawyers thought about the selection of that adjective and w...

"What trips up Kamala Harris is an evident desire to please her audience. She wants no enemies to her left, no identity politics left untouched."

"She can't run as a prosecutor—crime fighting is so 1990s—but she can run as brash, bold, and woke. Her verbal miscues are possible evidence that this latest political fashion doesn't quite fit," writes Matthew Continetti at Free Beacon.He describes 3 recent incidents. One is something we discussed a few days ago, here, her inability to handle a predictable question about Jussie Smollett. Another, as Continetti sees it, was that on her televised town hall, she didn't seem ready to handle questio...

Evidence: Sueing for Breach of Contract

My question involves court procedures for the state of: UT (However I believe it's also PA, because the business is located in PA. The contract was signed by me in UT.) I've got a small claims suit in about two weeks. I'm suing my publisher for breach of contract. They're a self-publisher; I paid them about $3k to print books and get a package that included a website. It's been two years, this company basically can't find their ass with both hands, a flashlight, and a special ass map. The absol...
