Who Are Alternative Legal Service Providers Today?

Bob Ambrogi reported this morning that Axiom, a global legal services company providing legal professionals and technology to legal departments in the largest companies in the world, is going public. Made me wonder who were the “alternative” legal service providers of today. Companies like Axiom or traditional law firms? After all, Axiom already has 2,000 employees across three continents.   A few weeks ago, Frank Ready of Legaltech News reported that Elevate, providing consulting, te...

New word, just learned: "Euhemerism."

"Euhemerism is an approach to the interpretation of mythology in which mythological accounts are presumed to have originated from real historical events or personages. Euhemerism supposes that historical accounts become myths as they are exaggerated in the retelling, accumulating elaborations and alterations that reflect cultural mores. It was named for the Greek mythographer Euhemerus, who lived in the late 4th century BC...."I got to that Wikipedia article from Samson, where I had gone to read...

Tuesday round-up

In a podcast at Howe on the Court, Amy Howe “look[s] back at some of the events of the week of November 5 at the Supreme Court, including the first opinion of the term, the formal investiture of Justice Brett Kavanaugh, and the announcement that 85-year-old Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg had broken three ribs in a fall at her office.” At Vox, Julia Belluz notes that Ginsburg has “lived through many personal and familial medical dramas — all of which she’s bounced back from.” At BBC News, Jessica Lu...

A Former Remington Executive Takes On A Challenge: Building A Smart Gun That Can’t Be Hacked

Forbes: For a while this summer, Ginger Chandler ignored the emails from LodeStar. As an executive who had formerly worked on product development for Smith & Wesson and Remington, she was an obvious candidate to help the startup develop a better smart gun. But she knew the history of smart gun efforts in the United States. In short, they’d failed. Smart guns are a kind of graveyard of heroes who have been torn apart on the rocky shoals of American gun politics. Chandler had been laid off from R...

More Wichita Police Shootings Of Innocent People

Not long after the unnecessary and criminal shooting of Mr. Andrew Finch in his own home by a Wichita cop, and about the same time that the mother of Mr. Finch appealed to the city because the police won’t even release her son’s body to her for burial, there is yet another shooting in Wichita (via reader TK). A Wichita police officer was placed on administrative leave after a girl was injured when the officer tried to shoot a dog inside a home on Saturday. The officer tried to shoot a dog that c...

50 years ago today: The Jimi Hendrix Experience released "Are You Experienced?"

I still have my copy. It survived the proposed great album cull of 1976. I vividly remember my first husband going through the pile of record albums we'd lugged from place to place and selecting "Are You Experienced?" to hold up. "You're never going to listen to this again," he asserted.Here's the "Are You Experienced?" Wikipedia page:Soon after the [recording] session began, [producer Chas] Chandler asked Hendrix to turn his guitar amplifier down, and an argument ensued. Chandler commented: "Ji...

Trials: Can a Defendant be Charged Attorney Fees on a Dismissed Case

My question involves criminal law for the state of: Michigan On October 5th 2016 a domestic violence case against me was dismissed. I was given a fee of $150, although I don't remember I believe it was for court appointed counsel. When I asked the court-appointed attorney she confirmed it was because of her appointment.

Speeding Tickets: How to Fight a Traffic Court's Jurisdiction

My question involves a traffic ticket from the state of: Arizona I received a speeding ticket of "77+" in a 65. I passed the officer on the freeway and he put his lights on. He was a Gilbert, AZ officer and I was on the loop 202 in the Chandler area. I have been told that yes he can still give me a ticket. But where he pulled me over is not within the court's jurisdiction in which he charged me to. My court date is in 3 weeks and I'm wondering how do I go about fighting this? What do I say? D...

Chemical Tests: Possible Defenses to an Extreme DUI Charge

My question involves criminal law for the state of: Arizona My mother was arrested for an Extreme DUI in Chandler about a month ago. After having her car impounded for 30 days, it has come to my attention that the officer that arrested her did not document what her actual blood alcohol level was on the arrest record. He had simply marked that her blood alcohol level (taken via breathalyzer) was within the Extreme DUI range. She appeared in court today and the judge also simply read her charge a...

What makes your breakthrough useful?

News of amazing breakthroughs that can – maybe – help solve pressing societal problems in healthcare, energy, economic development, and other areas arrives daily. Yet problems persist, because breakthroughs become useful only if they are integrated with other aspects of the situation. We hype physical breakthroughs in science and technology while ignoring the grunt work of bringing them into use. History puts making physical breakthroughs useful into perspective. In the late 19th century, modern...
