District Judge Lynn N. Hughes in Houston took a case entirely away from the bankruptcy judge rather than hear an appeal. District Judge Jed Rakoff, while sitting on the appeals court in a case involving Bernard Madoff’s fraud, wrote an opinion in which he, in substance, told himself how to rule in another Madoff case he’s hearing as a district judge.

Former chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission Richard C. Breeden, appointed to distribute $2.2 billion forfeited to the U.S. government, hinted he might give money to some victims of the Madoff Ponzi scheme who were denied claims by the trustee under the Securities Investor Protection Act.

Investors in stock and bonds issued by bankrupt Overseas Shipholding Group Inc. received a surprise when the company published disappointing projections. They were more surprised when the securities dropped precipitously in value. http://bit.ly/15WaB36 #BillOnBankruptcy

For the foreseeable future in federal class action jurisprudence, “rigorous analysis” remains the watchword, attorneys D. Matthew Allen and Amanda Arnold Sansone of +Carlton Fields say in this Bloomberg BNA Insight. The authors trace the history of judicial treatment of class actions under Rule 23 and place rulings into four distinct chronological phases. In the current “Rigorous Analysis Phase,” the authors discuss seminal rulings in Amchem, Wal-Mart, Amgen, and Comcast, and explain how these decisions are a “natural progression of the slow evolution of the class action device.”  http://bit.ly/16uBjMR

U.S. infrastructure is crumbling into mediocrity for lack of funding, +Patton Boggs LLP's Jay Tannon writes. To finally rebound, the U.S. needs to have what the many nations that have surged ahead of it have: a national infrastructure bank or financing authority to leverage public dollars and attract private investment. There are promising bipartisan proposals in Congress that deserve prompt support, Tannon argues. http://bit.ly/17GOHAi

The lengths that TV show producers will go to in order to protect the secrecy of final episodes are legendary. Take “+Breaking Bad,” halfway through this final season, the actors started receiving redacted scripts; key scenes were blacked out. With "Lost,” most of the actors were only told how the show would end when they gathered to film the final scene. And the script the “Sopranos” crew was given was missing the final scene altogether – some believed the series would end with Tony raking leaves.

So what if the script for the #BreakingBad finale had been leaked? Could it have been legally protected as a trade secret?

+New York University  School of Law Professor Christopher Sprigman explains: “Trade secret lawsuits are fairly common and the law is pretty simple. The key really, in a lot of these cases, is showing that the information is economically valuable because of the secrecy and that secrecy measures have been taken that are normally adequate to retain the secrecy. I think in both of these instances, the Breaking Bad plaintiffs, if it comes to a case, would have a pretty good shot.” http://bit.ly/18a6ikd   #TrendingInLaw

An important issue before the court system is the proper application of privacy within the scope of a lawsuit and the confines of a courtroom, Michael Pullano and Matthew Laver of Weber Gallagher  write. If a litigant can demonstrate a connection between the discovery sought and the claims raised, the courts will require appropriate production. But if litigants are asked to produce the entirety of their respective social media profiles, that request is ripe for a relevancy challenge, according to the authors. http://bit.ly/16POV5u   #Facebook

Jesse Witten, partner at +Drinker Biddle & Reath LLP, talks with Bloomberg Law’s Spencer Mazyck about his representation of a group of Native Americans who have petitioned to cancel the trademark registrations of the +NFL’s Washington, D.C. team, the "+Washington Redskins."  

Witten, in this #Rainmakers   episode, also argues that his clients’ ongoing petition before the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board should be granted because the trademarks at issue contain matter that may disparage Native Americans. http://bit.ly/1gXvlZI

Assuming the Marketplace Fairness Act (S. 743) is enacted, many companies may find themselves required to register and collect sales taxes in states where they have little tax experience. In this article, Michael Miller of Merit Advisors LP makes recommendations on how that risk can be mitigated through careful planning. He recommends complete and accurate record keeping of remote sales in anticipation of the inevitable increase in state sales-tax audit questionnaires, targeted investments in modernized compliance systems and the fostering of internal communications in a corporate culture that strives for preparedness. http://bit.ly/19ePVRc
