Ever wonder what a federal judge can’t do? Not if you’ve read the FRCPs.
In fairness, it was a joint request for remand based on insufficient $$$ in dispute, and the R&R wasn’t objected to, but still, a win’s a win.
Even though a court may grant leave to obtain discovery through the Hague, timeliness is still a consideration.
It’s customary to stay execution of a judgment pending the resolution of post-judgment motions, and here’s what that looks like.
Somewhere in the freak show that was December I also had an article in the IP Section’s newsletter based on my work moderating two judge panels during the fall – it’s available here, but I’ve also attached a copy.
I also got out my second IP Section quarterly newslettter out last month which featured a great article Iancu v. Brunetti: WTF Happens Next by John Sommer, who argued the case to the U.S. Supreme Court. Ping me if you’re interested, as the newsletter isn’t posted yet.
My annual article in the Texas Bar Journal reviewing the year’s developments in patent law is out. You can access it here at p. 45-6.
It’s a sad day in Marshall and especially at the Hub as we learned of the passing of Louis Kariel this morning. Louis’ great-uncle Mose Weisman opened the Hub shoe store which now serves as our firm’s law offices in 1897, and Louis followed his father Louis Sr. as owner through 2001.
After selling me the building in 2009 Audrey and Louis Kariel were our biggest cheerleaders through the renovation, and stopped by often to see how the building was coming along, including as our guests of honor when the historical marker for the store was dedicated in 2012. Like his father and wife, who both served as mayors of Marshall, Louis was a leader in the Marshall business community, and will be greatly missed.
