This morning's release of the U.S. Supreme Court's 5-4 decision in Caperton v. A.T. Massey Coal Co. (No. 08-22) could open the door to more recusal motions in Texas appellate courts (and possibly trial courts). In Caperton, the Court held that due process required a West Virginia Supreme Court of Appeals justice to recuse himself from a case in which his largest single campaign contributor was a party. The story reads much like John Grisham's The Appeal (discussed here and here) in which a litigant… [read post]

Judge Abramson, who practiced law for 34 years in Monroe County, was appointed by Governor Beebe to the Court of Appeals last year following Judge Price Marshall’s confirmation as a federal district court judge.  Abramson is not… [read post]

The clearly erroneous Wall Street Journal article in question was published on December 15, 2013, under the title Jimmy Carter's Costly Patent Mistake. The article, written by Gordon Crovitz, seems to take the position that patents stifle innovation, although Crovitz thesis is not explicitly stated. As ridiculous as it is to suggest that patents stifle innovation, this ill-defined Crovitz thesis isn't the major issue with the fiction published by the Wall Street Journal. Crovitz erroneously states… [read post]

The absolute truth known to everyone in the innovation community is that pioneering innovations become commonplace. What was revolutionary at the time the invention was made becomes taken from granted. In hindsight pioneering innovations look insignificant because they have become ubiquitous. The public, judges and critics find it difficult (assuming they try) to determine whether that which is commonplace today was really, truly obvious decades earlier as of the critical date. Even when an… [read post]

Reuters on March 18, 2013 released the following: “By Lawrence Hurley (Reuters) – The Supreme Court agreed on Monday to consider in what circumstances the assets of a defendant can be frozen before trial. The question before the high court is whether prosecutors can prevent defendants from using their assets to pay for a lawyer without a hearing on the issue. The case concerns Kerri Kaley, a sales representative for a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson Inc, who was indicted by federal… [read post]

Last week marked the formal launch of a new Supreme Court of California resource center, SCOCAL (http://scocal.stanford.edu).

There are lots of cool features in the site and, as ever, I encourage all our readers who are interested in California law to spend some time checking it out. Below is a brief summary of what you’ll find when you visit the site. California Supreme Court… [read post]

Everyone who has objectively looked at the case knows that the Federal Circuit made a terrible mistake, but not that won't be corrected and a serial patent infringer that has made a business practice of ignoring patent rights gets to use the Soverain technology for free. And just when you think things couldn't get more strange, Newegg makes a bizarre comment with misogynistic undertones. "The witch is dead, hurray," said Lee Cheng, Newegg's Chief Legal Officer. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to… [read post]

Back in February, I wrote about a growing division among district courts over the applicability of Iqbal/Twombly’s heightened pleading standard to the pleading of affirmative defenses. As anyone who has filed a 12(b)(6) motion knows, the Supreme Court issued a pair of decisions—Bell Atlantic Corp. v. Twombly, 550 U.S. 544 (2007), and Ashcroft v. Iqbal, 556 U.S. 662 (2009)—that require plaintiffs to (1) state each claim using short and plain sentences (Fed. R. Civ. P.... [read post]

The U.S. Supreme Court has blocked the Montana Supreme Court’s decision: American Tradition Partnership, Inc., fka, Western Tradition Partnership, Inc., et al., Applicants v. Steve Bullock, Attorney General of Montana, et al.  by upholding the state’s century-old ban on corporate political spending. A Huffington Post blog entry said that the stay granted by the US Supreme Court on February 17, 2012 sets up a possible full-blown rematch over the 2010 Citizens United decision that allowed… [read post]

my iPhone can be a bell that you physically shake and it goes “ding” like a hotel desk bell; or it can be a carpenter’s level to help hang pictures, level a cabinet; or, it can be a compass that swings this way and that just like the one from a long ago scouting exercise; or it can be a flashlight. Clearly, one can patent a bell, level, or compass in whatever form it exists, it is a device. That much is not in dispute. But, what about the “code” that creates that… [read post]
