In an effort to prevent auto accidents, Florida proposed a  ban on cell phone use and driving, but Bill limits the age group that this law applies to. Is it a baby step in the right direction or should we just go for ALL ages and be done with it?

"Organization is the key to success" was driven into us the first year of law school and is something I hold true to this day. Can never be too organized ! Productivity is the key

Very interesting indeed...post versus send
I had a case like this not to long ago. The question was whether threats posted on a personal Facebook page should be considered "sent" under the law which prohibits sending written threats of bodily harm.

Luckily for my client, I was able to convince the prosecutor that "posting" something on your own page was NOT analogous to "sending." I argued that it would have been different if he had sent a FB message to the person, or posted the threat on the victim's page. I even retained the author of "Facebook for Dummies," as an expert witness.

I was somewhat surprised by this recent decision. You can read the opinion for yourself here:

I'm interested in knowing what you think. Do you agree with the court's decision? Disagree?
