Truckers’ union goes to court over federal rest time ruling

In a move that pits business interests against organized labor, the federal agency that regulates big-rig traffic late last year issued a ruling that wipes out California labor laws mandating meal and rest breaks for interstate truck drivers. Within a week of that decision, the International Brotherhood of Teamsters, the union that represents truck drivers, filed a legal action in federal court challenging the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration’s ruling. The federal agency is being aske...

Ninth Lawsuit Against Social Media Providers for “Materially Supporting Terrorists” Fails–Clayborn v. Twitter

This is the ninth different case where a court concludes that social media services aren’t liable for providing “material support” to terrorists. This particular litigation involves the San Bernardino shooting, but the underlying incident doesn’t matter much. Instead, the court is governed by the Ninth Circuit’s Fields v. Twitter case, which held that social media services aren’t proximate causes of terrorist attacks. That ruling pretty much dictates this dismissal. So apologies for my light com...

Eighth Lawsuit Against Social Media Providers for “Materially Supporting Terrorists” Fails–Copeland v. Twitter

This is another 1-800 LAW FIRM lawsuit against social media providers for allegedly materially supporting terrorists. Like the others, it fails. In light of the Ninth Circuit’s Fields opinion, dismissing a similar suit on proximate cause grounds, this opinion doesn’t break any new ground. The court’s overview pretty much says it all (note: the truncation of the first paragraph appears to be a mistake in the court’s opinion): Sean and Brodie Copeland were intentionally struck and killed by a truc...

Freelancing parents: looking for feedback

I’m still recovering from spending all of last week in New Orleans at the 59th annual ATA conference, so here’s a topic for all of you while I catch up on work and sleep: A colleague is weighing the options for working (or not) with small children, and specifically whether to take a sabbatical (stop working completely) for a couple of years, or to work 10-20 hours a week during the small child years. Obviously there’s not a clear answer here (if only!), so I’m interested in hearing from readers ...

Voip or Landline? Which Does Your Business Need? This Will Help You Decide

If you’re looking for a phone system for your business or local office, you have two options to choose from: VoIP or landline. Every business, regardless of industry, needs a phone system.
