DAV join hands with top three law firms to aid war veterans
The injured soldiers returning from the war-torn zone of Afghanistan and Iraq have something to cheer. The Disabled American Veterans (DAV), an organization set up to support disabled veterans, is supposedly joining hands with three renowned Washington, DC law firms - LeBoeuf, Lamb, Greene & MacRae, King & Spaulding, and Foley & Lardner. These firms will provide free legal assistance to soldiers at Walter Reed Army Medical Centre in Washington and the National Naval Medical Center located in Bethesda, Md., the two prominent medical centers known to admit wounded soldiers. The arrangement would seemingly provide some succor to the veterans who suffer low disability rate. All these years the defense department has been giving cold shoulder treatment to these veteran war heroes. Bereft of lifetime compensation and benefits comprising of health care coverage for themselves and their families, the veterans were passing through a bad patch of their lives. Moreover, the appointment of JAG officers, the military attorneys, was like rubbing salt on their raw wounds. Already loaded with cases, they seem to do no justice to the veterans' requests. Now with three law firms on DAV's board, the injured forces can look forward to a better and brighter future for themselves and their family members.
Adduci, Mastriani & Schaumberg adjudged the best in Section 337 investigations
A study conducted by independent practitioners revealed the international trade law firm Adduci, Mastriani & Schaumberg, LLP topped the chart, in high-profile IP litigations. With Section 337 cases flooding the U.S. International Trade Commission (ITC), and its growing demand with the Fortune 500 companies, it was palpable for AMS to climb the success ladder, with the firm's core competency in handling 337 investigations. The study carried out by American Legal Media (ALM) titled "International Savoir Faire: Knowing the ropes at the ITC has boosted the Practice of Boutique Adduci, Mastriani & Schaumberg - Other firms also prosper" available in the June 2007 issue of IP Law & Business, also validated AMS leadership in IP litigation at the ITC. The U.S. International Trade Commission carries out the section 337 investigations. Majority of the investigations hinges around intellectual property rights including allegations of patent infringement and trademark infringement by imported goods. Even utility and design patents as well as registered and common-law trademarks are accorded paramount importance in these investigations.
Judge Pearson cries for lost pants in court
Remember the Judge who sued the dry cleaners for "$67 million" for his lost pants? Yes. Well, he's back, and in full steam. Though the bill's been slashed down slightly. This time there is a new twist: he broke into tears! Why? Because of his pants! I mean, because the pants he was given back were charcoal black, not maroon and blue - the one's he lost. Roy Pearson, DC administrative law judge, earlier sued Custom Cleaners, 'mom-and-pop business,' over his lost pants two years ago, seeking about $65 million under the DC consumer-protection laws and another $2 million in common law claims. However, now he's asking for only $54 million. Why? Because Pearson's attack this time is on two objectionable and fraudulent signs in the shop that have since been removed. Mom and Pop Chungs's defense lawyer states: "This case is very simple [its] outlandish!" Wonder if Pearson's next claim includes the compensation for lost tears, too!
LawCrossing was probably the best legal board I have used. I liked the layout and it was user friendly. I tried to use another job board, but it was not user friendly and was kind of a pain, whereas LawCrossing was easy to use to find jobs. I really liked it. I would certainly recommend this site and service to my colleagues.
