Making the Leap From Disrupted to Adaptive

Regardless of what business you are in, likely, you will face business model disruption in the coming years. According to authors Robert Tercek, Jay Samit or Bill Jensen, digital technology and the ongoing expansion of the World Wide Web are driving new value propositions and annihilating legacy companies.   Over the last 20 years, I've witnessed disruption in multiple industries, which ushered in new leaders or defined incumbents as agile and adaptive.  What's interesting is that adaptation did...

OT2018 #3: “Ordinary Pinch”

Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh is now Associate Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, and so we’re back to a nine-member court. Since Will Baude is filling in as recurring guest host, we’ll take a look at the so-called “shadow docket” to see what the justices are up to outside of the courtroom. Then, we’ll get back to business as usual and recap arguments from the last week. Nielsen v. Preap features some great advocacy, wherein the justices get a taste of their own hypothetical-infused medicine. Then, we’ve go...

SCOTUS for law students: Remembering recent confirmation hearings

Supreme Court confirmation hearings in the Senate Judiciary Committee are not usually a place one looks for legacies. Yet a number of hearings have left their mark on the Supreme Court nomination process. Add the confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to that list. This column will consider examples from the confirmation of the late Justice Antonin Scalia, the unsuccessful nomination of the late Judge Robert Bork, and the hearings for Justices Clarence Thomas and Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Chief J...

Creation: Right of Way Over a Road That Was Not Constructed

My question involves real estate located in the State of: Maine So my question involves my neighbors right of way that is next to my property line. From my research of the deeds it appears that the guy who originally did the subdivision still owns the land under this right of way. The right of way for my neighbor was for a road that was supposed to connect to another city road behind his house. The road was never built and thus the right of way has never been used for travel. But because my ne...

Quiet day for orders

This morning the Supreme Court issued orders from the justices’ private conference last week – the first one in which the court’s newest justice, Brett Kavanaugh, participated. On Friday afternoon, the justices had announced that they had granted review in one new case, involving the application of the First Amendment to the private operator of a public-access television channel. The justices did not add any new cases to their docket with today’s order list, and they did not act on several of th...

The 17th nominee for the “worst employer of 2018” is … the hedonistic harasser

Some call it horseplay. I call it sexual assault. And the 17th nominee for the Worst Employer of 2018. Robert Smith worked behind the meat counter at Rosebud Farm, a small Chicago grocery store. It only took a few weeks after he started work for his male coworkers (including his direct supervisor) to start harassing him. They groped and grabbed his genital and buttocks. They reached down his pants. They repeatedly mimed oral and anal sex on him. And they did this for four years. Smith's comp...

The Agile 99th

Weight was the issue. The B-25B, carrying a full combat load, was just too heavy to takeoff from the deck of the USS Hornet. While the nation was still reeling in the wake of the attack on Pearl Harbor, Gen. Henry “Hap” Arnold, Chief of Staff of the Army Air Force, assigned Lt. Col. James “Jimmy” Doolittle to conduct a bombing mission on Tokyo to disrupt Japanese aggression and momentum and embolden the American public for the task ahead. Enl...

Considering the Value of Patents in African Countries

The following is a guest post from South African patent attorney Ralph van Niekerk of Von Seidels Like all IP rights, patents are territorial and if you want to stop a competitor from practicing an invention in a particular country, you need to have a patent there. Given the global world we live in, successful inventions tend to be adopted widely and used in many countries. This is a fortunate position for patent holders, who can often protect their competitive global position by filing patents ...

Bitter ant.

Here's a product you might need if you, like me, eat crumbly food while keyboarding. I just bought that, as the K key is getting balky on the keyboard I bought just last June, when the U key completely failed. At the time, I said, "The old keyboard lasted a long time and, like the keyboard before it, went bad with the failure of one or 2 keys. I'm not disappointed at the failure, really. I use my keyboards for hours a day, day after day, and they last for years. How many hours. I think they go b...

Community Rules: Reduction in Parking Spaces Assigned to a Condo

Does Trump owe Elizabeth Warren $1 million after she got a DNA test that showed she might be as much as 1/32 Native American?

We're already talking about Warren taking the test, and now I see (at The Hill) "Trump denies offering $1 million for Warren DNA test, even though he did." Here's the video where he's asked about it today and says, "I didn't say that you better read that again."Okay! I'll take the challenge. I recommend the video, because it's acted out amusingly, very entertaining:But here's the text, because Trump did say "you better read that again." And reading is great for the kind of textualism that any la...

Utah Supreme Court Hears Case Regarding Police Officers And Their Guns

News from Utah: SALT LAKE CITY — Should police officers have to prove to a court that they are, in fact, acting as police officers every time they brandish their guns while performing their duties? Paul Cassell, a University of Utah law professor and former federal judge, believes that’s the broader issue the justices of the Utah Supreme Court are currently deciding. And that decision could affect Utah law enforcers statewide, even those in uniform and on duty, he contends. On Friday, attorneys ...

In fact, the son had the lawnmower and used it in (alleged) self-defense.Since the father is the one with the injuries, how do they know which one was the attacker?What would you choose if forced to fight ...

"After a successful career as an adviser to and unofficial spokesman for the royal family of Saudi Arabia, [Jamal Khashoggi] had been barred from writing in the kingdom, even on Twitter, by the new crown prince."

"His column in a Saudi-owned Arab newspaper was canceled. His marriage was collapsing. His relatives had been forbidden to travel to pressure him to stop criticizing the kingdom’s rulers. Then, after he arrived in the United States, a wave of arrests put a number of his Saudi friends behind bars, and he made his difficult decision: It was too dangerous to return home anytime soon — and maybe forever. So in the United States, he reinvented himself as a critic, contributing columns to The Washingt...
