  • Arson - Why Your Criminal Defense Attorney Matters

    Arson cases can either be charged in federal or state court. In Minnesota, the most common arson charge is arson in the first degree, which charges that the person intentionally set fire to his home or other dwelling, usually for the insurance money or some other financial reason. This is a serious charge that, if convicted, will likely result in at least a 4-year prison sentence. If you or a family member is facing charges of arson, you need an attorney experienced in handling arson cases.

  • How California Lawyers Will Assess Autonomous Self-Driving Vehicle Accident Liability

    Now may be the most dangerous time in the short history of self-driving autonomous vehicles when automakers are testing their autonomous self-driving vehicles on the roads and highways in California, across the country and internationally to work the bugs out of their systems. But how will California autonomous self-driving vehicle accident lawyers assess and prove liability in accidents involving these cars once more of them are on the road?

  • The Most Dangerous California Highways in Orange County for Personal Injury Car Accidents

    In 2012 alone, there were over twenty thousand accident victims killed or injured in Orange County. While freeways seem as if they’d be the most dangerous, only about a third of the fatalities and serious injuries occur on the interstates. The majority of victims killed in Orange County accidents lose their lives on surface streets. We list the most dangerous intersections and highways in Orange County where you’re most likely to have your first, next or last and final accident.

  • What if No One Has Auto Insurance?

    If no one involved in a car accident has auto insurance, the situation is complex. It doesn’t matter if a driver who was illegally driving without insurance didn’t cause the accident; he or she generally does not have a case. However, passengers are not legally required to have an insurance policy just to ride in a vehicle. If they suffer injuries in an accident and no insurance policy is available, they can get help through state funds.

  • California Lawyers Weigh Lawsuits for Spread of the Measles Virus, Negligent Endangerment

    California legislators plan to introduce a bill to eliminate the personal belief exemption which allows California parents to refuse to vaccinate their children. Two U.S. senators also want to eliminate the religious exemption. Whether either change is enacted, daycare facilities who fail to protect others from unvaccinated children and parents who fail to vaccinate their children risk liability for any injuries or deaths caused by their child’s spread of the highly contagious measles virus.

  • New Laws to Help Sexual Abuse Victims and Their Lawyers in California

    As a result of changes to sexual abuse laws in California and a more liberal statute of limitations, attorneys in California now have a greater chance to pursue perpetrators of sexual abuse and obtain justice for their victims. Thanks in part to greater public awareness of the problem, recent reports in the news, and more women willing to come forward after being abused, a greater number of abuse and molestation victims can at last obtain some measure of justice for the trauma they’ve endured.

  • Satire and Parody, Publishing Law in California and England

    In the aftermath of the horrific and deadly attack on the offices of Charlie Hebdo in Paris on January 7, 2015, we examine why parody and satire are cherished forms of free speech and how they are protected by U.S. and U.K. law. When an aggrieved target of satire or parody sues for defamation, or a copyright holder sues when their work is contained in a mashup, can parody, satire, or fair use be utilized as a defense by an attorney? In the U.K., it will help if the parody is funny.

  • Pedestrian Fatalities and Injuries in the Coachella Valley Cause Concern

    Pedestrian accidents, both with fatalities and injuries are on the rise in the Coachella Valley and officials are concerned. There has been a rash of hit and run accidents all over California this year and the Coachella Valley has not been immune. But it is the total number of pedestrian accidents, hit and run and otherwise that is causing city leaders to consider what can be done to prevent further death and injury to the desert’s residents.
