Skadden, Arps to advise Virginia Tech Review Panel International law firm Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom, LLP, will offer pro bono advice to the Virginia Tech Review Panel. W. Gerald Massengill, the chairperson of the panel said that the move follows the agreement by Attorney General Bob McDonnell and Gov. Timothy M. Kaine to allow an outside firm to advise the panel which was created to study the Virginia Tech shootings. Lead attorneys Richard Brusca and Amy Sabrin will offer the pro bono services for the firm. Besides advising the state police and Virginia Tech, the Virginia Attorney General's office is also advising the commission. However, because the review panel is an independent body, it necessitated legal advice from an outside counsel, said the chairperson. Earlier, Gov. Kaine created the eight-member commission to review the April 16 tragedy, and the circumstances that led to the massacre and the response.
Fortinet arms law firm with Advanced Network Security
Prominent national law firm Fish & Richardson adopted Fortinet®'s FortiGate and FortiAnalyzer S to enhance its network security and reporting based on its performance, ease of manageability, and integrated functionality. Leading provider of ASIC-accelerated unified threat management (UTM) solutions, Fortinet® armed the law firm with a comprehensive security platform. Through this, Fortinet® will provide real-time network protection to the law firm's 11 offices across the country and also help safeguard communications for its more than 1,500 users. Fortinet®'s FortiAnalyzer(TM)-2000 is a logging, reporting, and analysis appliance which will enable the firm to easily aggregate, analyze, and report on its log data across the country.
Fish & Richardson, which specializes in IP, litigation, and corporate law, wanted to upgrade the security of its network perimeter to include anti-virus scanning and web content filtering. The firm's existing firewall systems provided only packet-filtering functionality and were at the end of their planned lifecycle. Therefore, the firm wanted an integrated single-appliance network security solution that consolidated all of the required feature-sets and included reporting.

More than the bargain
Christopher Woods, (not the guitarist) wanted to boost his flagging energy with Boost Plus made by Swiss based Novartis but ended up filing a lawsuit against Novartis. The reason - apparently too much of a boost.
He drank Boost Plus and went to bed happy, only to wake up next morning with an erection that would not subside. A team of doctors worked together to tame the unruly member and ultimately Woods had to undergo corrective surgery that included the implantation of a "Winter shunt" followed a few days later by "penile artery embolisation."
