We had covered the jurisdictional journey of the various claims brought by hedge funds against Porsche in relation to the failed Volkswagen take-over before. To the best of my knowledge, courts in London, New York – both federal and state court, so New York counts twice –  Stuttgart, Braunschweig and Hannover have been dealing with various aspects of these claims so far. Der SPIEGEL now reports that new claims have been issued in Frankfurt. The Frankfurt plaintiffs seek damages in… [read post]
The New York Times recently wrote an article about an Oklahoma woman who has filed a lawsuit against a major cellphone company. The woman's mother was killed in a motor vehicle accident last year when a pickup truck crashed into the mother's car. At the time of the collision, the driver of the pickup truck was using his cellphone and later explained to the police he had become distracted by talking on the cellphone, which caused him to run a red light causing the collision. Based on the article, it… [read post]

Many clients are unaware that the commercial general liability insurance (CGL) policy they hold is not fully protecting their most valuable assets, the ability to sell their products. And, most IP attorneys do not know that IP insurance is available to help fund their client’s IP litigation risks. If a client's IP becomes involved in litigation, specialized IP Insurance products will help ensure that there are funds available to pay the associated legal expenses. Without specific IP Insurance in… [read post]

Negligence law was originally created in response to the Industrial Revolution when railroads, factories, machinery, and new technology increased injuries to people and caused harm to their property. Negligence in Florida is a failure to use reasonable care, with harm to another party occurring as a result. For example, if John pulls the trigger on what he thinks is an unloaded gun and inadvertently shoots Jane, than John has negligently harmed Jane. Negligence law was formed under the belief that… [read post]

As explained by Ed McNally (one of the most renowned corporate litigators in the known universe), the Delaware Superior Court has created a commercial litigation division.  This is exciting for many reasons, not the least of which is the new division has rules regarding eDiscovery.  Morris James had the honor of providing input on the formation of those rules, and we are very pleased with the final results.  A brief summary of the rules: The new rules require parties to meet and confer to… [read post]

Deciding an issue of first impression in Indiana, the Indiana Court of Appeals, in Flores v. Gutierrez, held that a photograph of a damaged vehicle could be used as evidence in determining the extent of bodily injury sustained by a driver in an accident, even without the support of expert testimony. The motor vehicle collision giving rise the personal injury lawsuit occurred in Hammond, Indiana, and the jury trial took place in Lake County, Indiana. In Flores, a jury found Juan Rocha Gutierrez… [read post]

Professor Bernard Chao and Professor Dr. Derigan Silver, both of the University of Denver, have published A Case Study in Patent Litigation Transparency, forthcoming in Journal of Dispute Resolution. Here is the abstract: The courts have long recognized a general right to inspect and copy judicial documents. Yet, large swaths of filings in patent litigations are often inaccessible. This article takes a closer look at this phenomenon by examining a single case. The Monsanto v. DuPont dispute over… [read post]

So far, most coverage of the iPad’s release on April 3 has focused on its likely impact on the media industry. Largely unnoticed, but just as profound, is the effect it will have on electronic discovery. Because the iPad is the first truly user-friendly device that enables people to do e-discovery any time, any place, and any way they can imagine,  it promises a revolution. We saw this early on at Clearwell and, while the iPad was still in development,  partnered closely with Apple to … [read post]

Over the course of the past 20 years, the Virginia Supreme Court has tweaked the law governing non-compete agreements. In its latest case, the Court came full circle by invalidating a non-compete agreement that used the same language the Court had upheld 20 years earlier in a case involving the same company. As we have written before, trial courts will enforce non-compete agreements when the agreements (1) are narrowly drawn to protect the employer’s legitimate business interest, (2) are not… [read post]

When copying has occurred, much of the code may have changed by the time it’s examined due to the normal development process or to disguise the copying. For example identifiers may have been renamed, code reordered, instructions replaced with similar instructions, and so forth. However, perhaps one comment remains the same and it’s an unusual comment. Or a small sequence of critical instructions is identical. Correlation is designed to produce a relatively high value based on that comment or… [read post]

A warning that calls attention to a product's potential danger is obviously an important part of a company's litigation prevention and defense. But according to one recent statistic, a substantial portion of the public, and potential jury pool, may be a bit cynical on the question of whether warnings are designed to educate or just provide cover. In a 2010 Decision Analysis Survey on attitudes toward products liability litigation, fully 70% shared the belief that product warnings exist to protect… [read post]

A federal jury returned a stunning, $919 million verdict yesterday for DuPont in a trade secret theft case.  In E.I. du Pont de Nemours v. Kolon Industries, the verdict was the culmination of a two-and-a-half year battle that DuPont waged against Kolon Industries to prove that Kolon had misappropriated key aspects of its formula for Kevlar®. The court delivered a decisive blow shortly before trial when it found that Kolon had destroyed emails and other electronically stored information linking it… [read post]

I don't spend too much time on products liability issues, but Wyeth v. Levine was a major ruling in the area of federal preemption, and its reach is still being tested.  In Gaeta v. Perrigo Pharmaceuticals Company (9th Cir. Jan. 24, 2011), the Ninth Circuit agreed with two Courts of Appeals and all of the district courts to consider the issue of whether federal law preempts state law failure-to-warn claims against generic manufacturers. In Wyeth v. Levine, 129 S. Ct. 1187 (2009), the Supreme Court… [read post]

These days, being mentioned on a late-night talk show is pretty much a stamp of “going mainstream”. This is true of celebrities (notably the One-Man Band that is Charlie Sheen), public figures (Captain “Sully” Sullenberger, who piloted the US Airways plane to a safe landing on the Hudson River), and even infomercial goods (who isn’t familiar by now with the Snuggie?) In the e-discovery world, we realized just how mainstream this industry is becoming when we made mention on The Daily Show… [read post]
