The code section is VA Code 18.2-59 and reads in pertinent part: "Any person who (i) threatens injury to the character, person, or property of another person, (ii) accuses him of any offense...and thereby… [read post]

This evening's Senate Committee hearings on C-59, the movie camcording bill, went about as expected with the Senators passing the bill and generally voicing support.  That said, there was some skepticism - one Senator expressed doubt about whether this was a major problem, while another was surprised that the Canadian penalties exceed those found in California.  Toward the end of the hearing, the Senators quizzed the Justice Minister about the inconsistent industry… [read post]

Clio was the first major player in the online practice management space to sync with Outlook, and now Clio and Time59 announce iPhone compatibility. Neither offer a true iPhone app; instead, both have iPhone-optimized sites (despite Clio's confusing blog entry). This is a good thing, in my opinion. Gmail's iPhone-optimized site is better than any e-mail app I have seen, including Apple's own. To go with the iPhone-optimized website, Clio has also announce websites optimized for Android and the Palm… [read post]

I get a kick out of it when I see any politicians spin things, and spinning is apparently what all politicians do. Today I was just laughing; if private businesses operated according to the same standards that political entities do, we'd all be starving. A private business can't say, "GREAT Year! We only lost $59,000,000!" And that's because the banks and investors for the business would pull the plug in a heartbeat, because they can operate a pocket calculator. Same thing with ordinary people;… [read post]

BILL 59 Parking should never be a criminal offense. (for any length of time.) An entirely separate section of the law covers food trucks. It covers their permitting, their cleanliness. It covers the need for a commercial kitchen or commissary. A separate code covers the “truck” aspect. It covers the registration/insurance requirements. The whole thing. But one law (and only one) makes selling food longer than 15 minutes punishable by incarceration. This law is punishable by more jail time than a… [read post]
