Opinion analysis: Court finds particular maritime safe berth clause constitutes charterer’s warranty of safety

In a 7-2 decision announced today, the Supreme Court held that a safe berth clause in a particular maritime charter party agreement constituted a warranty of safety, making the charterer, who designated the unloading berth, liable for costs to clean up an oil spill. In concluding that the charter party agreement allocated such a risk to the charterer (collectively referred to as CARCO), the court umpired a dispute involving more than $130 million dollars between the parties, resolved a circuit s...

What’s Your Problem?

WE HEAR A LOT about reframing, but do we actually do it? True. We get busy, and we start looking for a solution without first analyzing the problem. We want a quick solution so we can move on. And we “solve” the wrong problem. Reframing helps us to avoid this. Reframing helps us to see solutions that we would otherwise not see, as we see the issue from different angles. Sometimes the process of reframing leads us to discover that what we thought was the problem is not really the problem at all....

Robin Thomas

Graph Theorist and Georgia Tech Math Professor Robin Thomas passed away Thursday after his long battle with ALS. He was one of the giants of the field and a rare double winner of the Fulkerson Prize, for the six-color case of the Hadwiger Conjecture and the proof of the strong perfect graph theorem. If you start with a graph G and either delete some vertices or merge vertices connected by an edge, you get a minor of G. The Hadwiger conjecture asks whether every graph that is not (k+1)-colorabl...

Coronavirus fallout: Homebuyers balk, local escrows plummet 16%

Coronavirus is slowing Southern California homebuying, with new signed sales contracts for existing homes plummeting 16% in the past week, according to one real estate data tracker. Various efforts to limit the spread of the coronavirus has throttled the state’s economy, costing perhaps 1 million Californians their jobs. In the past week, the state has issued a stern stay-at-home order that limited even more businesses, including home sales. The California Association of Realtors told its member...

Now the knuckleheads from the Great Whi...

SCT: States can Keep Infringing Copyright With Immunity/Impunity

By Dennis Crouch This case is welcome news to state-employed teachers infringing copyrights like crazy as they post materials online.  Allen v. Cooper (Supreme Court 2020) Justice Kagan offered the US Supreme Court’s opinion siding with the State of North Carolina (Cooper) in a Copyright federalism question — holding that US Congress does not have the authority to abrogate State immunity from copyright infringement lawsuits.

Cooper . Justice Elena Kagan wrote the opinion for six justices; Justice Clarence Thomas joined the opinion in part; and Justice Stephen Breyer, joined by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, concurred in the judgment.

How Leaders Overcome Adversity

We believe that great leaders possess four essential skills, and...these happen to be the same skills that allow a person to find meaning in what could be a debilitating experience. First is the ability to engage others in shared meaning... Second is a distinctive and compelling voice... Third is a sense of integrity (including a strong set of values)... But by far the most critical skill of the four is what we call "adaptive capacity..." It’s composed of two primary qualities: the ability ...

Coronavirus is the new black. COVID-19 hits the stars and the Royals in this week’s dubious tabloids

“Tom Hanks & Wife Rita . . .

The banal answer: “. . . either flying to Australia or traveling around the country.’ Which of course tells us (vaguely) where they cau...

What's next? Free-agent fits for the Vikings secondary, offensive line and more

The Vikings' free-agent splash might be limited to Wednesday's agreement with ex-Ravens nose tackle Michael Pierce, who will replace Linval Joseph on a deal charging $9 million annually. But there are still plenty of holes left on the roster, so let's take a look at remaining free agents who make sense as fits in Minnesota. The Vikings' cap space is among the least in the NFL, while the team could still re-sign some of its own players like kicker Dan Bailey and safety Andrew Sendejo. Many of the...
