LOS ANGELES — By the time Bennie Boatwright stepped onto the court for his season debut in mid-November, the USC basketball team had already played its first two games and gone through nearly six weeks of preseason practices, including a pair of private scrimmages against Mountain West Conference schools.

I went to the biggest tech show in the world after not going for the past 7 years — and I was surprised by how little had changed

I went to CES, the biggest tech show in the world, for the first time since 2012. To be honest, not much has changed since the last time I went seven years ago. LAS VEGAS — Thousands of people flock to Nevada in the first weeks of January for the biggest annual tech show in the world — and this year, I was one of them.

Naperville, IL Development Project Forced To Drop Name To Avoid Public Confusing It With City 1.7K Miles Away (techdirt)

Lots of trademark disputes are stupid. Lots of trademark disputes portray a great deal of hand-wringing that is laughable at best. And lots of trademark disputes end up being settled despite not being even remotely valid. But very few trademark disputes have to do with the naming and promoting of commercial developments when the geography that separates them is over 1,700 miles. But that's the case in the recent news that the City of Naperville in Illinois has dropped the name of its Water Str...

Did a Russian Robotics Company Fake This Tesla-Robot Crash?

Big money — and big law — has followed. The opportunity could be huge: some Wall Street analysts say marijuana could become an $80 billion...

"Nevada would have to be careful about what it did to California. But the situation now is different because they’re states in the union."Said Justice Alito, at oral argument yesterday in Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt (transcript). The case, discussed at SCOTUSblog, raises the question "Whether Nevada v.

Argument analysis: The familiar yet fresh debate in Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt

Federal courts aficionados have been looking forward to the oral argument in Franchise Tax Board of California v. Hyatt, and the event did not disappoint. The question was whether to overrule the decades-old precedent Nevada v. Hall, which held that states lack sovereign immunity in one another’s courts. The argument largely broke down according to familiar ideological lines, but the discussion still had verve and creativity, in part thanks to the performances of veteran advocates Seth Waxman an...
