Tomorrow, the Kentucky Supreme Court will hear an interesting case that asks the court to determine whether an attorney entered into an invalid fee agreement and a conflict of interest when representing a criminal defendant. In this case, the defendant was accused of murdering his adoptive father. Because he did not have money to pay for his representation, the attorney agreed to represent him for a fee based on assets from the defendant’s family’s 160-acre farm, which the defendant was due to inherit. The problem, though, is that under Kentucky law, you can’t inherit property from someone you are convicted of killing which meant the attorney could only collect her fee if she was able to secure an acquittal. Does this make the agreement a contingency fee, which is banned by the rules of professional conduct in criminal defense cases? Yes, according to a disciplinary hearing officer. Interestingly, however, the Kentucky Bar Association’s board of governors reversed most of the findings of the hearing officer and unanimously exonerated the attorney from the alleged violation of the contingent-fee rule. The Kentucky Supreme Court could reinstate any of the charges or none of them. It is the first case in which the court has ever considered a violation of the contingent contract rule in criminal cases.

Most countries routinely award permanent injunctions to the prevailing patentee. In the U.S., since the Supreme Court’s 2006 decision in eBay v. MercExchange, courts consider four equitable factors of irreparable injury, adequacy of the remedy at law, the balance of hardships, and the public interest. As a result, U.S. 75% of the time; in the remaining quarter of cases, they award an ongoing royalty. Over the past year the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit has given mixed signals as to how often courts should award patentees permanent injunctions. I’ll have more to say about some of these opinions in future posts, but for today I’d like to focus on one case in particular, Edwards Lifesciences AG v. CoreValve, LLC, 699 F.3d 1305 (Fed. The patent in suit is for a medical device known as a transcatheter heart valve. 1,284,861 as a reasonable royalty. Several issues were raised on appeal, but for present purposes I’ll focus exclusively on remedies. CoreValve argues “that the criteria for award of lost profits were not met, stating that it “could have manufactured its device overseas by March 2007,” CoreValve Br.
3, and thus would have avoided all liability for infringement, by avoiding infringement. CoreValve argues that this eliminates liability for damages based on its manufacture in the United States, or that at most it should be liable for only a modest royalty. Neither the jury nor the district court was persuaded by this argument. Nor are we. Whether or not CoreValve could have avoided infringement, it did not do so, although it was notified as early as 2005 of Edwards’ position, and the record showed CoreValve’s familiarity with the patents and the inventors. A patentee’s right to exclude is a fundamental tenet of patent law. Richardson v. Suzuki Motor Co., Ltd., 868 F.2d 1226, 1247 (Fed. Connell v. Sears, Roebuck & Co., 722 F.2d 1542, 1548 (Fed. The innovation incentive of the patent is grounded on the market exclusivity whereby the inventor profits from his invention. Absent adverse equitable considerations, the winner of a judgment of validity and infringement may normally expect to regain the exclusivity that was lost with the infringement. Edwards argues that the Court’s ruling in eBay Inc. v. MercExchange, L.L.C., 547 U.S.
388, 126 S. Ct. 1837, 164 L. Ed. 2d 641 (2006) supports its position, for the willfulness of the infringement and other equitable aspects weigh in favor of restoration of the exclusive patent right. The Court in eBay did not hold that there is a presumption against exclusivity on successful infringement litigation. The Court did not cancel 35 U.S.C. In Advanced Cardiovascular Sys. Medtronic Vascular, Inc., 579 F.Supp.2d 554 (D. “Courts awarding permanent injunctions typically do so under circumstances where plaintiff practices its invention and is a direct market competitor.” Id. 558. Edwards argues that these conditions here prevail. However, the district court declined to impose the requested injunction. The district court’s explanation of why it was withholding an injunction placed significant weight on CoreValve’s statements that it was immediately moving this manufacturing operation to Mexico, and thus that infringement would terminate. 16, 2011 U.S. Dist. ]s it did in this case, Edwards can bring suit against CoreValve and seek damages if CoreValve continues its infringing manufacturing operations in spite of the judgment of infringement.” Id.
15, 2011 U.S. Dist. 28. Edwards states on this appeal, and CoreValve does not deny, that CoreValve never stopped its infringing manufacture in California. Whether or not that representation was known to be false when made, the situation before us reflects, at least, changed circumstances. In TiVo Inc. v. EchoStar Corp., 646 F.3d 869, 890 n. —the majority’s discussion of the permanent injunction standard. ]bsent adverse equitable considerations, the winner of a judgment of validity and infringement may normally expect to regain the exclusivity that was lost with the infringement.” Majority Op. 1314. To the extent that one reads this statement as creating the presumption of an injunction once the plaintiff prevails, which must be rebutted by the defendant, that is not the law. Nor do the selected portions of eBay cited by the majority provide support for its position. First, while I agree with the majority that in eBay the Supreme Court did not cancel 35 U.S.C. Some complain of areas of patent law in which our guidance is mixed or muddled. This is not—or should not be—one of those areas after the Supreme Court’s clear pronouncement in eBay. In its May 6 cert. Whether the Supreme Court decides to take the case or not, I find a couple of things notable about the majority opinion. 16 (D. Del. Feb. 7, 2011). If moving abroad wasn’t an available alternative during the period for which the lost profits award was calculated, then it was correct to award lost profits. I don’t claim to be familiar enough with the facts of Edwards to offer an opinion whether an injunction would be warranted or not.
Overruling Democracy: The Supreme Court vs. The American People is a controversial work by Doctor Jamin B. Raskin, professor of constitutional law at American university. His writings have been published in Washington post, Los Angeles Times, The Nation, The American Prospect, The Washington Monthly, The American Lawyer, Legal Times and George and Slate. Also he is author of We the Students. The book includes ten chapters in 242 pages, bibliographical references as endnote and index. Each chapter begins with a prelude from famous Americans quotations on America. As it’s obvious from the title, its debate in on political questions concerning the issue of democracy according to the Constitution and rulings of the Supreme Court in the United Stats of America. The books had been published in a hardback and strong binding which it self resembles the seriousness of legal issues. On front cover a standing double-headed hammer is figured which can be a metaphor for doubt and hesitation in Supreme Court decision making which is in dilemma on which head should be hammered. This book of course not as a handbook but as a really informative one can be useful for those with democracy concerns especially in modern United States context. Raskin focusing on Bush vs. In his presentation Raskin asks for revising constitution by adding an amendment so called “Right to Vote” amendment, as he believes there is no real democratic franchise in a document which states 3/5 portion for Men. E.J Dionne author of Why Americans Hate Politics and They only Look Dead: Why Progressives Will Dominate the Next Political Era has a thinkable view about this book.
People who don’t believe in astrology or any form of it ask this common question “What is vastu Shastra”? The belief surrounding Indian vastu shastra is mainly based on the cosmic energy and the Sun rays effect on a dwelling space. In today’s day and age, vasthu has gained popularity mainly because people want to be happy and successful in their businesses, careers, and academics. Majority of Indians turn to a vastu professional for help as and when they are faced with problematic situations that brings them unhappiness, financial loses, health related problems, marriage issues, and no peace of mind. Today, there are students who are undergraduates, post graduates, and even Ph.D. Similar to vastu shastra even feng shui has gained popularity in China, India, and in the western world. It’s difficult to say which came first; vasthu shastra or feng shui as there is not much documented evidence is to prove otherwise but this is for sure that both have been around for over three thousand years. Feng shui parts with the knowledge of how to balance space and energy in order for humans to remain healthy, wealthy, happy, and in good fortune. In Chinese, feng means “Wind” and shui means “Water” and both are considered very important elements in the Chinese Culture. The Chinese believe that the land we live on has life and is filled with energy (called CHI) that could either brink us good fortune or misfortune. Therefore, to take advice from a feng shui professionals is very essential, as they are very well aware of all feng shui pros and cons. In closing, people might still not believe in astrology, vastu, feng shui, numerology, etc stating it’s baseless and purely based on false beliefs. Ask such people only one simple question “How can they believe in God even though no one has really ever proved if he really exists”.
Judgment of Supreme Court of India in order XXXVII of CPC. Milkhiram (India) Private Ltd. The appellants filed an affidavit as required by Sub-rule 3 purporting to disclose facts sufficient to entitle them to defend the suit. Upon a perusal of the plaint and the affidavits of parties and documents filed along with the plaint the learned Judge thought it fit to grant only conditional leave to the appellants to defend the suit. The amount for which the plaintiff-respondents have claimed relief in the suit is Rs. 4,05,434.38. As against this claim the Court has ordered the appellants to deposit security for Rs. 70,000 only. The appellants considering themselves aggrieved by the order preferred an appeal under Letters Patent which was summarily dismissed by the appeal Court. They have now come up by special leave to this Court. In support of the appeal Mr. Yogeshwar Prasad has raised two points. The first is that the defence disclosed by the appellants in their affidavit raises a triable issue and that, therefore, it was incumbent upon the learned trial Judge to grant unconditional leave to defend.
2. It will be convenient to deal with the second point first. The respondents in their plaint have alleged that from time to time they advanced monies to the appellants and obtained promissory notes from them. They are four in number and the total amount advanced under them was Rs. 3,45,000. The execution and consideration for these promissory notes is admitted by the appellants. 4. Now we will come to the first point. Mr. Yogeshwar Prasad contends that the order of the High Court by which it demanded security from the appellants was wrong in law inasmuch as no reasons were given by the trial fudge for making it. In support of the contention reliance is placed upon the decision in Waman Vasudeo Wagh v. M/s. Pratapmal Dipaji & Co. ILR (1962) Bom, 206: (AIR 1960 Bom. That case is however distinguishable. There what was challenged was the order of the City Civil Court which granted leave to the defendant to defend the suit for recovery of a sum of Rs. 18725/- upon the condition of depositing Rs.
7500/- as security. It was urged before the High Court that where a subordinate court /makes an order which is open to appeal or revision it should give some reasons in support of that order. No reasons having been given the order was set aside and the matter was remitted to the City Civil Court for passing a fresh order in accordance with law. While laying down the normal rule it does not appear to have been intended to make it inflexible. Nor again it appears to have been contemplated that elaborate reasons to support the imposition of conditions must be given. In the ease before us the order made is by the High Court itself and not by the subordinate court. 5. Learned counsel relied upon a decision of this Court in Santosh Kumar v. Bhai Mool Singh. The broad principle, which is founded on (1901) 85 LT 262, is summarised on p. It is worth noting also that in Lloyd’s Banking Co. v. Ogle (1876) 1 Ex. D. 262, at p.

Yesterday’s ruling by Multnomah Country Circuit Court Judge Henry Kantor, has left many PERS retirees in despair. While the ruling was hardly uplifting, it wasn’t a surprise (at least not to me). If Judge Kantor had wanted to gobsmack PERS for what they admitted they were doing last August 16, I suspect he would have done it right then and there. That he didn’t, and that he needed more time to study it, suggested that we wouldn’t get a favorable ruling. This, even though I sat through that entire hearing and watched Judge Kantor’s facial expressions that suggested he wasn’t happy with the wide boys working for PERS. But if there is anything I’ve learned in my years of sitting in the back benches of courtrooms is that it is impossible to read anything into Judge’s expressions, body language, or even their questions. What exactly did Judge Kantor do to help the pigs out even more than they’ve already been helped by the actions of a couple of really slimy lawyers?
First, and foremost, Judge Kantor ruled unequivocally that PERS could NOT collect the overpayments PERS was wanting to collect in their Strunk/Eugene remediation project. This was the essence of the Robinson case. Judge Kantor ruled that PERS’ January 2007 order and its March 2007 “collection notice” were illegal on their face. Period, end of story. PERS cannot collect that large chunk of money by any means. To be clear here, this is only Judge Kantor’s ruling. Before this story is over, this ruling will be reviewed by the Oregon Court of Appeals (possibly) and the Oregon Supreme Court (for sure). The second ruling Judge Kantor made was that the 20% earnings credit for 1999 had never been finalized because it had been appealed in a timely manner, according to the law. At this point, both Arken and Robinson head to the Oregon Court of Appeals. There has been considerable talk about petitioning the Court of Appeals for a “pass” and moving the entire show onto the Oregon Supreme Court. I’m ambivalent about this. As much as I’d like this whole thing to be over, I’m not sure I’m ready for this to move before the White case has had its day in Court. If Arken/Robinson get their pass to the OSC, I’ll be OK with it, but I’d like a ruling on White before the Court hears any more cases. P.S. Press the Yahoo! We’re growing by leaps and bounds and the discussion has been really good so far. And it is all about PERS.
On 25th May 2018, a Referendum on the Regulation of the Termination of Pregnancy was held in Ireland – BBC News 27th May – The Guardian 26th May. The referendum question was whether to accept an amendment to Article 40 of the Irish Constitution so that provision can be made in law for the regulation of termination of pregnancy. In March 1992 the Irish Supreme Court decided Attorney-General v X and others. A Timeline of the X case and the Judgment is available via the link HERE. In X, a 14 year old girl became pregnant as a result of being raped by a man known to her and her family. She had been sexually abused by the same man for some 2 years. X and her parents decided to travel to the UK so that X could have an abortion. The family asked the Irish Police (Gardai) whether, after the abortion, the foetus could be tested to provide proof of paternity. The Police asked the Director of Public Prosecutions whether such evidence would be admissible in court.
In turn, the DPP liaised with the Attorney General who obtained an injunction stopping X and her parents leaving the country or arranging for termination of the pregnancy. Ultimately, the Supreme Court discharged the injunction thereby permitting the threat of suicide as a ground for abortion. By contrast with Ireland, the United Kingdom does not have a written (or formal) constitution. Rights are not guaranteed in the UK and are at the mercy of Parliament. In Ireland, constitutional amendments have been required to permit ratification of various European Union Treaties – e.g. the 28th Amendment dealt with the Lisbon Treaty. On each occasion, a referendum was held to approve the amendment. For the UK, the European Union Act 2011 made provision for referendums in connection with any treaties replacing the Treaty on European Union or the Treaty on the Functioning of the EU. This Act will be repealed when the European Union (Withdrawal) Bill becomes law.
