I received a news story of a trucking wreck on IH 35 in Oklahoma where two gentlemen, Phillip Martin and Brian Robertson, were having car troubles.  They pulled over to the side of the road, got out of their vehicle, and went to sit against the passenger side of their truck in the shade until help could arrive.  Unfortunately,  a truck driver came along, hit the disabled truck, and killed Mr. Martin. This is but the latest example of how dangerous it can be to be parked on the side of the… [read post]

IH 35 is a bit unique in that it spans from the southern border with Mexico to the northern border with Canada.  But no matter where you are along the highway, you face a grave danger of being involved in a trucking accident.  And yesterday’s Minneapolis Star Tribune had a good article, based in large part on an I35 truck wreck, about one of those risks — tired truck drivers. For the most part, truck drivers are supposed to be limited in the number of hours they can drive.  In 2005, the… [read post]

Drive a vehicle illegally on Illinois roads, and you might not take the vehicle home with you. An obscure law in this state allows the police to seize the vehicle and sell it. And in situations where someone other than the owner was driving, those vehicles can be seized and sold over the owner’s objection. The process is called an Article 36 seizure. Most vehicle owners become aware of it when they attempt to pay an administrative towing fee at the police station and are told that the vehicle… [read post]

For the second time in less than a month, Austin has experienced a traffic fatality from a driver driving the wrong way on a highway.  Early Saturday morning, a woman in her twenties was killed as she was driving the wrong way in the northbound lanes of the I35 lower deck.  The wrong-way driver hit two other vehicles and was killed after her car caught fire.  Amazingly, the  occupants of the other two vehicles appear to not have been seriously injured at this time. The wreck fits the… [read post]

I’ve written about hit and run accidents before, but the problem just seems to be getting worse.  The Austin American Statesman is reporting on two more hit and run accidents from last week. In the first accident, Lacey Marie Seljos was charged with intoxication assault and failure to stop and render aid after she allegedly hit a bicyclist just off of I35 last Thursday morning.  Fortunately for the victim, a police officer saw the wreck and was able to stop Ms. Seljos.  She was apparently so… [read post]

If you’ve read this blog at all, you know that we closely follow stories about wrong way drivers because this is a phenomenon that seems like it should never happen, and yet it’s becoming routine. This morning, a San Antonio police officer, Officer Stephanie Brown, was tragically killed along I35 when a wrong way driver slammed his SUV into her patrol car.    This wreck fits the pattern of most wrong way driver incidents — the wreck happened early in the morning and the wrong way driver… [read post]

Earlier this week, Eliot Alfred Carvajal, was allegedly driving drunk and led Austin Police Department officers on a police chase (with speeds exceeding 100 miles per hour) that started in North Austin on I35 and ended in a fatal collision in South Austin near Brodie Lane.  As the car neared Brodie, Carvajal lost control of the vehicle and wrecked.   One  unindentified passenger in the car was killed, and two others were seriously injured.  Earlier this month, a Fayette County police chase… [read post]

I often have the misfortune of telling potential clients that I can’t help them because they didn’t come to us soon enough.  Clients often think they’re doing great to call us several months before a statute of limitations runs. But that’s not always enough notice.  A number of cases require immediate attention.  For example, in a premises liability case, for best results, we need to be able to inspect the scene as close to the date of the accident as possible.  When conditions change,… [read post]

Last week, the federal government announced new plans to allow more Mexican trucking companies to have access to US highways.   Other than some limited trials, Mexican trucks have been limited by law to only driving within 25 miles of the US/Mexico border.  But under the new proposal, the trucks could continue on into the United States. This has huge implications for Austin and the rest of Texas.  If you’ve driven on I35, you know that 18 wheelers make up a significant portion of traffic.  A… [read post]

What is patentable subject matter? Many people believe that they can patent anything. But the truth is there is only certain statutorily allowable subject matter that can be patented (35 USC 101). Here's a list of the basic allowable subject matter: Process (Method of making infrared heaters which reduces costs by 25%)  Machine (Motorized device for clearing leaves out of a gutter without climbing) Article of manufacture (Pencil, chair) Composition of matter (Paint, drugs) Or… [read post]

It’s one of the biggest weekends in town.  Where else do you have 200,000+ motorcycle riders gather?  And have concerts featuring Bret Michaels, Blood Sweat & Tears, Blue Oyster Cult & Gallagher?  That’s right!! This weekend is once again time for the Republic of Texas Biker Rally. And while the bikers like to descend into Austin, and the rest of us watch with amazement, it seems that every year is also accompanied by tragedy.  Let’s try and make this year different.  Both bikers and… [read post]

A wire problem that can disable airbags is the most recent problem Nissan Motor Co. faces.  Yesterday, Nissan announced it would recall 135,000 Infiniti G35 sedans and coupes.  G35 coupes affected are models built between 2005 and 2007.  G35 sedans from 2005 and 2006 are also part of the recall.  Nissan declared that the air bags in those models could suffer from wear and tear which could cause the bag not to deploy in a collision.  For more information call 1.800.662.6200.   [read post]

Prior art, 35 USC 102, continues to be a complicated concept for patent practitioners and their clients, undergoing evolving interpretations in the PTO and CAFC and even statutory reform. For every practitioner, it is a necessity to stay current on this touchstone of patentability. How does the concept of "prior art" and circumstance collide in the 21st century? How does prior art on the web impact the practice? What is here today, could be gone tomorrow, but can possibly be recovered mean in terms… [read post]

Gene Quinn, of IPWatchdog and Practice Center Contributor, sent in this article discussing why he believes the United States Supreme Court's decision to accept cert. in Kappos v. Hyatt was undeniably a bad decision. By accepting cert. in Kappos v. Hyatt the United States Supreme Court has clearly and undeniably jumped the shark in terms of patents. This case, which raises issues of such little importance to the greater scheme of patent law, is hardly appropriate for Supreme Court consideration. The… [read post]

Interstate 35 is a major artery running north and south in the middle of the Lone Star State. And those who travel it regularly on holiday weekends are certainly no stranger to traffic jams.  Having family and friends to visit in Dallas, Temple and Austin, I can testify from personal experience that back-ups along that over-congested highway often cause delays lasting several hours.  Accidents are not uncommon. This year it looks like the travel woes have started early. This morning around… [read post]

There was a sad car wreck in New Braunfels this week that led to this post.  Two older women were driving on I35 in New Braunfels near Rueckle Road when their car was cut off by a red sedan.  The driver swerved to avoid the red sedan, and eventually ended up having a wreck.  The two older women were both airlifted to University Hospital in San Antonio.  What type of claims might the women have for the injuries sustained in the car wreck? If they can find the driver of the red sedan, the two… [read post]

What's taking the Supreme Court so long to hand down an opinion on the Bilski vs Kappos case? Bilski was argued on Nov. 9, 2009... 225 days ago. There has been much speculation that the decision will be published when the Supreme Court next releases its opinions on Thursday (June 24, 2010) or next Monday. Dennis Crouch's Patently-O blog posts a nice chart of Joseph Miller, a professor at Lewis & Clark Law School, which shows the length of time it took the Supreme Court to render decisions on 20… [read post]
