Aggregation of Legal Marketing Professionals Blog Posts

Does anyone keep track of legal marketing professionals who publish a blog? I was doing a search in Facebook Group for legal marketing professionals which I see as a leading knowledge base in legal marketing and I could not find something that I’m thinking must have been discussed. Appears the search across posts in a Facebook group is not all that good. Off the top of my head I was thinking of Heather Morse-Geller, Lindsay Griffiths, Tim Corcoran, Stefanie Marrone, and Nancy Myrland. ...

When Employees Work From Home, How Much of the Home Office Must be Paid For by Employer?

Since March of 2020 (has it really been a year?!), the Governor has ordered employers to allow employees to work from home if they can in many industries.  Many other employers have just decided to do it anyways. Working from home has been far from a temporary thing; it’s THE thing. But what about providing equipment to work from home?  What about internet service? A printer? Printer ink? A desk? A ergonomic chair? Many employers are providing some type of help, offering computers and other offi...

Court Affirms Damages on Very Wide Royalty Range Testimony

Bayer Healthcare LLC v. Baxalta Inc. (Fed. Cir. 2021) A jury sided with the patentee Bayer — finding the patent infringed and not proven invalid.  The judge refused to allow the jury to decide willfulness, and instead found no willful infringement as a matter of law. Affirmed here on appeal. The basic setup: Bayer’s U.S. Patent No. 9,364,520 covers a conjugate that includes a “functional Factor VIII polypeptide” having a particular amino acid sequence (“or an allelic variant thereof”).  Factor ...

I Get To The Emergency Room Faster When I Can Speed — See Also

Was It For Distracted Driving?: A doctor showed up to traffic court from the operating room. People are dragging the lawyer but from what I understand of traffic court, this guy probably HAD to show up mid-incision to get any reprieve at all. If he'd asked for a new date they'd probably have just entered a default judgment and moved on because the institution exists mostly as a formality for appropriating people's money.

Is it time to decriminalize prostitution? Two New York bills answer yes in unique ways

Today in the majority of the United States, it is a crime to sell sex, buy it, or promote its sale. The Sex Trade Survivors Justice & Equality Act would decriminalize prostitution in New York state while maintaining punitive measures against buyers and pimps. Opponents suggest this law would only push the illegal sex trade further underground and seek full decriminalization for everyone involved. Although incorrectly labeled the world's oldest profession, prostitution has been on the minds of l...

"It’s been quite baffling and painful for me to have people assume I’m a racist and believe that I said the ridiculous things I’m accused of saying..."

"... that 'racism is over,' that 'white supremacy doesn’t exist,' or 'white privilege doesn’t exist,' or that I defended the use of blackface or said horrible things about black teenagers in general. I’m surprised by how quick some colleagues who barely know me were prepared to accept those accusations and even add more on a Times alumni Facebook page. Someone to whom I don’t think I’ve spoken since 1994 said 'calling him only a racist is being nice.' An editor I happily worked side by side with...

LexisNexis Extends Its Context Language Analytics to Cover Attorneys’ Briefs and Motions

Last year, LexisNexis introduced Context, a refinement of an analytics tool originally developed by Ravel Law that analyzes the language of a judge’s opinions to determine the cases and arguments the judge finds most persuasive in deciding specific types of issues. As I reported then, that original launch also included Context for expert witnesses, and, since then, LexisNexis has expanded Context to also cover courts and companies. Today, LexisNexis is further expanding Context with the introduc...

The actor who plays Prince Charles in "The Crown" and the actress who plays Princess Diana both won Golden Globes last night.

Here they are — Josh O'Connor and Emma Corrin — in their biggest scene together in the finale of Season 4:  I've watched Season 4 twice (and the rest of "The Crown" once), and I love this scene. Charles is both horrible and yet — somehow — sympathetic. "You think we couldn't do that too? Theatrically hug the wretched and dispossessed and cover ourselves in glory all over the front pages?"
