What to do in Prague for 2 days

The essential of historical Prague in just 48 hours The historical centre of Prague is a compact area which – provided you have a good itinerary – can be reasonably visited in just two days without missing out any of the essential sights or the general image of the city in the past and nowadays. The early medieval town started to develop along  both sides of the Moldau (Vltava) river, upon and underneath several hills that provided the necessary visual safety point. The settlement has natural...

Wildflower etiquette: Stay on the trails, and don’t stop traffic

Take pictures of the wildflowers. Just don’t take pictures in the wildflowers! That’s one of the main messages that wildlife and park officials across Southern California are trying to get out this spring as they anticipate a great season for wildflowers following abundant winter rain — and large crowds turning out for the colorful display. Sitting or lying down to take a selfie or even walking off an established trail can damage both existing flowers and the next generation that would have grow...

Tuesday round-up

Briefly: In the wake of the recent decision by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit in Robles v. Domino’s Pizza, holding that the ADA requires businesses to make websites accessible to the disabled, NFIB urges the Supreme Court to “clarify, once and for all, whether the ADA covers digital spaces.” In The National Law Journal, Courtenay Brinckerhoff and Daniel Shelton look at Helsinn Healthcare S.A. v. Teva Pharmaceuticals USA Inc., in which the court held that the sale of an invention ...

We've reviewed the transcript of the oral argument in Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp. v. Albrecht, No. 17-290 (U.S.), e.g., the United States Supreme Court appeal from the horrible decision in In re Fosamax (Alendronate Sodium) Products Liability Litigation.

Using a Fake Hand to Defeat Hand-Vein Biometrics

Nice work: One attraction of a vein based system over, say, a more traditional fingerprint system is that it may be typically harder for an attacker to learn how a user's veins are positioned under their skin, rather than lifting a fingerprint from a held object or high quality photograph, for example. But with that said, Krissler and Albrecht first took photos of their vein patterns. They used a converted SLR camera with the infrared filter removed; this allowed them to see the pattern of the...

Wednesday round-up

The justices wrap up the first week of the January session today with one oral argument, in Franchise Tax Board of California v.

Clotilde Le Roy and Jarrett Field have a preview at Cornell Law School’s Legal Information Institute. In his first Supreme Court opinion, Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote for...

Argument analysis: Gleaning the FDA’s meaning for impossibility pre-emption

Much of the federal government may be in shutdown mode, but the Supreme Court is still open for business. The Supreme Court opened its January session Monday morning with argument in Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp. v. Albrecht, a case about the workings of the Food & Drug Administration (still partially open) and when the agency’s actions may insulate drug manufacturers from state tort suits through “impossibility pre-emption.” An important and often-used litigation defense for manufacturers, impossib...

Deezer’s CEO wants to make their mark in 2019

Monday round-up

This morning the Supreme Court kicks off the January argument session with oral arguments in two cases. The first is Merck Sharp & Dohme v.

Elizabeth McCuskey previewed the case for this blog. Garion Liberti and Tayler Woelcke have a preview for Cornell Law School’s Legal Information Institute. The second case today is Obduskey v....

Argument preview: Revisiting impossibility pre-emption

When state law and federal law conflict, the Constitution’s supremacy clause provides that federal law displaces, or pre-empts, state law. Pre-emption issues permeate prescription-drug safety litigation because the Food and Drug Administration regulates the safety and efficacy of prescription drugs under federal law, while state tort law provides the remedy for patients injured by the use of FDA-approved drugs.  Prescription drug manufacturers frequently raise “impossibility pre-emption” as a de...

Hackers Make a Fake Hand to Beat Vein Authentication

Devices and security systems are increasingly using biometric authentication to let users in and keep hackers out, be that fingerprint sensors or perhaps the iPhone's FaceID. Another method is so-called 'vein authentication,' which, as the name implies, involves a computer scanning the shape, size, and position of a users' veins under the skin of their hand. But hackers have found a workaround for that, too. From a report: On Thursday at the annual Chaos Communication Congress hacking conferenc...

Election Day 2018: A nation on edge heads to the polls

By CLAIRE GALOFARO, MARTHA IRVINE and SHARON COHEN , WASHINGTON —  Michael Gregoire marched along a downtown sidewalk in the tense days before the midterm elections, waving a hand-painted sign at passing traffic: “DEFEAT REPUBLICANS 2018.” “The survival of the country is going to depend on this election,” he said as another man stopped for a moment to argue. The strangers faced each other from opposite edges of the great American divide, Democrat versus Republican, both convinced the election is...

Empirical SCOTUS: The big business court

The current Supreme Court is friendly toward big business. How friendly? If the court’s trajectory continues, perhaps as friendly as any court dating back to the Lochner era, when laissez-faire policies permeated the court’s rulings. Prominent scholars, most notably Lee Epstein, William Landes and Richard Posner, have found empirical support for the proposition that the current court is more pro-business than previous iterations. (That study was recently updated through the 2015 term.) This post...

Justices clean up cert docket before summer recess

James Ho may have been confirmed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit late last year, but today the Supreme Court ruled that a case that he filed before taking the bench, on behalf of a Kansas woman who alleged that police officers violated her civil rights when they tried to stop her from praying in her own apartment, can go forward. The justices emphasized that the lower courts should have interpreted her pleadings more generously because she had acted as her own lawyer in early pr...

Relist Watch: The final countdown

John Elwood provides his best guess about October Term 2017’s last relists. Every June, before the justices leave town, they have one last impromptu conference to consider – and usually dispose of – all the cases relisted after their last scheduled conference. In recent years, that has overwhelmingly happened on the last Monday of June, which is also typically when the court hands down the last opinions of the term; the resulting order list is usually released the following day. They’re running ...

Zuckerberg didn’t make any friends in Europe today

Speaking in front of EU lawmakers today Facebook’s founder Mark Zuckerberg namechecked the GDPR’s core principles of “control, transparency and accountability” — claiming his company will deliver on all that, come Friday, when a new European Union data protection framework, GDPR, starts being applied, finally with penalties worth the enforcement. However there was little transparency or accountability on show during the session, given the upfront questions format which saw Zuckerberg cherry-p...

EU is livestreaming Zuck’s hearing — reluctantly

As the European Parliament’s ‘Mr Privacy,’ Jan Philipp Albrecht, said: “It is a bad sign that Mark Zuckerberg only wants to answer the questions of selected Members of the European Parliament behind closed doors.” That’s an understatement! It’s also a pretty dreadful sign that the heads of the European Parliament’s biggest political groups were so happy to go along with this idea. It begs the question: what are the trying to hide? Zuckerberg’s culpability or their own inability? Albrecht himself...
