Not only that, Taylor Swift has 11 songs on Billboard‘s Hot 100 chart, all from her new album, Speak Now. Swift is the first artist ever to have that many simultaneously charting singles all drawn from a single album on the Hot 100 all at once. Plus, she’s hot.

@10:33 AM - Take a gander at MGM's numbers. Then walk around the nightmare on City Center street. MGM is over-extended and soon enough everyone will know. Poof, just like that, the stock will fall to its proper level, ZERO, and off to liquidation it goes.

Unlike the fine chaps in the genetically blessed Fertitta family, MGM is a heartless, soulless and mindless corporation. Even Captain Kirk can't guide this troubled ship into a port of safety.

The backpack toting gent who did the financing is probably pouring over his liquidation analysis spreadsheet this very moment.

Who was the gutless judge who did not grant summary judgment in this one?

Anonymous said...

Actually, the judge did grant summary judgment. However, the US Supreme Court issued an opinion regarding the application of res judicata while the briefs were pending that changed the law such that the NV Sup Ct was basically compelled to send it back for trial. The trial judge got it right the first time. As for the jury on the second go around. . .

My heart goes out to Bower.

One of the plaintiffs, Michael Bower, claimed in the lawsuit he was caught in the crossfire between the Hell's Angels and Mongols, with the bikers armed with guns, knives and other weapons. Bower said he dove off his gaming chair to seek cover and suffered a back injury as well as emotional trauma and flashbacks to combat during the Vietnam War.

Bower had been suffering from post traumatic stress disorder prior to the Laughlin incident and since then has been permanently disabled with post traumatic stress disorder syndrome, a court filing said

Oh, where to start?

1. Resentment. Many, if not all, qualified Boyd grads work in this community and make as much as the rest of the similarly tenured attorneys make, but with far less student debt than those who overpaid for a more prestige school only to find out the ticket to practice law is the same.

2. Bad Apple Theory. Boyd had had its fair share of odd ducks and loud mouths that cast a bad light on the school. For every one, and many have been outed by name on this Blog and the Nev. Sup. Ct. Advanced Opinions page, there are numerous hard working and competent attorneys who quietly and competently practice law in anonymity.

3. Elitism. (self explanatory.)

4. It's Funny.

5. The School itself, like most learning institutions has its own awkward identiy. From its liberal and gay agenda, to humerous ironies like Rick Harris teaching law practice management during his Divorce with Mainor, and large egos on the faculty including one who became a Ninth Circuit Judge and another who became a Bankruptcy Judge, just opens itself up to opinions.

6. Half of the students there are Mormon.

@2:37,

The way I understand it, when you get a grant for, say, prosecution of Dumbassery, you fill it with a current Deputy DA. You then backfill the Deputy's position with a clerk from the appellate division, and hire a clerk to fill the hole in the appellate division, because HLS needs many, many minions to deny the amount of rights that need denyin'.

So how is "getting a grant" any different from filling law clerk positions?

STD Test? There's an App for That

By Ben Popper

November 8, 2010 | 1:16 p.m

British health officials are hard at work on a new app that will allow users to pee into their cell phones and find out within minutes if they have an STD.

Seriously, we could not make this stuff up if we tried.

According to The Guardian, 4 million pounds have been invested in the UK Clinical Research Collaboration, which is creating a smartphone app that will allow users, "to put urine or saliva on to a computer chip about the size of a USB chip, plug it into their phone or computer and receive a diagnosis within minutes."

The techno-savvy approached is aimed at young brits, who apparently are too embarrased to visit the doctor face to face and have been experiencing rising rates of STD (or STI as they call them cross the pond).

"Your mobile phone can be your mobile doctor. It diagnoses whether you've got one of a range of STIs, such as chlamydia or gonorrhea and tells you where to go next to get treatment," Dr Tariq Sadiq, a senior lecturer and consultant physician in sexual health and HIV at St George's, University of London, who is leading the project, told The Guardian.

If it's really that simple, why wait till after the deed is done? Wouldn't it make more sense for prospective partners to swap fluids before hand, get a reading on their cell phones, and then decide whether or not to "finish the download"?

WILD WILD LAW IS FAMOUS

Jurors don't know the whole truth
by GEORGE KNAPP

How and why did so many people contract hepatitis at the endoscopy clinics operated by Dr. Dipak Desai? Will Nevadans ever know for sure? If you think the truth will necessarily come out in court, then you must not be familiar with how Nevada courts operate.

Months ago, a Clark County jury awarded close to $1 billion dollars to a local man who became infected with hepatitis after undergoing an endoscopy at a Desai clinic. With an award of that size, which included $500 million in punitive damages against two drug companies, one might think a definitive conclusion had been reached about the cause of the infection, at least for this one case.

But the fact is, the jury never came close to an objective and thorough finding about the cause of the infection because jurors were never allowed to hear a host of arguments, evidence and experts who would have offered alternative explanations. In the end, the panel pinned the blame on Teva Pharmaceuticals, the company that manufactures the drug Propofol, and on Baxter Healthcare, the company that distributes it.

Jurors bought the argument made by plaintiff's attorneys that because vials of Propofol contained enough of the drug for more than a single dose, the manufacturer had, in effect, encouraged Desai's clinics to re-use the vials on multiple patients and thus spread the hepatitis virus.

Two other hepatitis cases are making their way through the system. One is set to begin next week in District Court. Another is in limbo because of a stay issued by the Nevada Supreme Court. What is not immediately obvious is how little the public -- especially jurors -- have been allowed to hear about all of the circumstances surrounding the hepatitis infections.

If lawyers for Teva and Baxter felt a bit shell shocked after that first trial, we could hardly blame them. They're not about to attack the integrity of Nevada's courts, not with other cases still pending, but they had to be shaking their heads in disbelief after the kick in the 'nads they received the first time around. As noted in this space previously, the presiding judge, Jesse Walsh, was viewed as overtly friendly to the plaintiff's attorneys. The fact that those attorneys contributed such a large percentage of Walsh's campaign warchest is only part of the explanation.

In case you think this is just my own perception, you should see many of the comments posted on the local legal blog Wild Wild Law, where lawyers overwhelmingly predicted that Walsh would give every benefit of the doubt to the plaintiffs. Said one lawyer requesting anonymity, "The defense counsel will get absolutely railroaded by Judge Walsh, and when I say railroaded, I mean prison raped."

Those of us out here in the cheap seats were under the impression hepatitis was spread through previously used needles and Desai and/or his managers ordered employees to re-use needles as a way of saving money. The jury wasn't allowed to hear such allegations during the first trial. Walsh said the defendants were not allowed to tell the jury Desai's staffers had ignored the warnings on the Propofol vials. They were also denied the chance to argue the warnings on the vials had been approved by the FDA. They were not allowed to argue there was serious misconduct on the part of doctors or nurses. Nor were they allowed to show there were other ways hepatitis could have been spread.

(CONT)

Anonymous said...

A three-judge panel of the Nevada Supreme Court upheld Walsh's decision to exclude a wide range of additional evidence and testimony. And when the second endoscopy case found its way before Judge Kathleen Delaney, she ruled all of the previously excluded stuff should be allowed into the trial. Delaney felt it should be up to a jury to decide the true cause of the hepatitis infections. The plaintiffs made quick work of Delaney by appealing to the same Supreme Court panel, which put the second case into limbo by issuing an indeterminate stay.

That brings us to case No. 3, set to begin next week. The judge in that case has generally ruled the same way Walsh ruled. Among the evidence being excluded is a compelling pile of information about what sounds like a far more probable source of the hepatitis infection. As described in legal documents filed with the Supreme Court, Desai's clinics routinely ignored the most basic protocols for sanitizing instruments. They used "filthy endoscopes and accessories without proper disinfection" and they systematically cross contaminated all of these instruments by dropping them into a "primordial soup filled with human blood, feces, and tissue."

Essentially, the Desai clinics allegedly cleaned all of their instruments in the same sinks, and all at once, but failed to use the most basic disinfection techniques. Nationally known experts are prepared to testify this is almost certainly the reason hepatitis spread. However, because Desai and his insurance carrier don't have deep enough pockets, defendants are going after the two drug companies, and they are being aided by hometown rulings that have so far gutted any chance the out-of-town guys have to defend themselves.

Maybe it's natural for regular folks to root against the big, bad corporations, especially if they are not local companies to begin with. But that billion-dollar verdict is money that comes out of all of our pockets. If it is allowed to stand, and if other similar jury awards are issued, the cost will be reflected in everyone's insurance bill.

At a minimum, one would hope that a court case filed to find out who caused the infections of local citizens -- and how it was done -- would at a minimum allow jurors to hear a full and honest evaluation of the case, not merely the parts that personal injury lawyers have selectively chosen, and which their friends on the bench have decided to back up.

Quote of the week: "This [election result] is not an endorsement of the Republican Party. What it means is that they are putting us on probation to see what we can do." -- U.S. Sen. John Ensign, on election night. ... Wonder who at the Review-Journal drew the short straw and had to write the headline about Sen. Harry Reid's victory? The newspaper essentially went all-in for Sharron Angle, in both its editorial and news coverage, and must have had to swallow hard when those numbers started pouring in on Tuesday night.
