Marshall may be a small town in far East Texas, but in the world of patent litigation, it has been a giant. The Eastern District of Texas — which includes a federal courthouse in Marshall — draws more patent cases than any of the 93 other districts in the U.S. Of all patent cases in the country, 1 in 4 were assigned to a single Marshall judge in recent years.

But that patent docket could soon slow to a trickle. A Supreme Court decision Monday limits where patent cases could be filed. That means, ultimately, many of them would move out of East Texas.

A widely popular bill expanding rights for child victims of sexual abuse was amended quietly in the #Oklahoma Senate to eliminate an important legal tenet called the American Rule.

Shortly thereafter, attorneys around the state began to realize the American Rule had been terminated, thus forcing the losing party in civil cases to pay the legal fees of the prevailing party. Functionally, that would disincentivize citizens — especially low-income ones — from filing lawsuits in Oklahoma courts.

Seeking a solution, law firms have now joined the ranks of corporate America in providing napping facilities to support their employees.

A Jefferson County circuit judge today struck down Alabama's Workers' Compensation Act.

Circuit Judge Pat Ballard found two provisions, the $220 a week cap in compensation and the 15 percent cap on attorneys fees, unconstitutional.

However, because one or more provisions were found unconstitutional, the entire act is nullified.

Whiplash often occurs when there is a sudden backward or forward jerking of the head, something which frequently occurs in car accidents. When such a sudden and forceful event occurs to the neck, the intervertebral joints, cervical muscles, ligaments, discs, and nerve roots may suffer serious damage.

Whiplash is a very common injury from a car accident. Unfortunately, this type of injury can remain unnoticed for several days after the event, which is why seeking immediate medical treatment following an accident is so important.
