The continuing saga of the San Antonio Police Officers Association lawsuit has lead to a court ordered mediation.
In response to the United States Patent and Trademark Office’s (“USPTO”) petition for writ of certiorari in to the U.S. Supreme Court In re Tam (“THE SLANTS” case), the owners of the Washington Redskins filed their own petition for certiorari, asking the justices to hear their trademark case before the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals weighs in.
This Fourth Circuit ruling opens the door for the EEOC to investigate employers as a result of EEOC charges brought by unauthorized employees, even though an illegal alien worker may not be able to seek certain legal remedies.
The United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit recently affirmed a district court order, holding that a company’s allegedly improper disclosure of personal information was covered by its general liability policy even though no third parties accessed the data.
Last week, the United States Patent and Trademark Office (“USPTO”) in Lee v. Simon Shiao Tam, asked the United States Supreme Court to reverse the decision of the United States Federal Circuit, which held that trademark law’s ban on “disparaging” trademark registrations violates the First Amendment.
The Fourth Circuit hasn’t ruled yet, but the D.C. NFL team is already appealing to the Supreme Court in order to hop on a similar case. Which is fair, since they’ve been two sides of the same coin for their entire duration.
The owners of the Washington Redskins NFL team have petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to hear their trademark cancellation appeal, even though the Fourth Circuit has yet to rule on the team’s case.
Having your case decided against you because a well-intentioned judge chose not to apply some provision of our Probate Code for “equitable” reasons is to stare into the abyss. Why?
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: Bills like North Carolina’s “bathroom bill” aren’t long for this world. But that doesn’t mean they won’t put up a fight while they’re here.
