Court hearing in federal court in Harrisburg on 8-25-09 at 9:00 a.m. Phillies are in town that night. I'm willing to make the drive again. I'm up for another game. Interested?

Emails flying around today about a series of depositions in Pittsburgh in July. Hopefully, I'll be spending a few days in the 'Burgh . . .

As you know, I certainly wouldn't go to watch a baseball game . . . maybe Nutting has signed up the Phillie Phanatic to make a guest appearance. I can only hope.

Bucfan -

My new opponents in Alabama:

Beasley Allen currently holds U.S. records for largest verdicts/settlements in 4 categories:

The largest verdict against an oil company in U.S. History - $11.9 Billion.
The largest pharmaceutical drug settlement in U.S. History - $4.85 Billion.
The largest environmental settlement in U.S. History - $700 Million.

The largest predatory lending verdict in U.S. History - $581 Million.


Should be interesting . . .

If you keep the verdict under $500 million, the client should buy you a present.

What do you call a situation where a busload of lawyers is driven off a cliff? Answer: An accident.

What if three of the lawyers survived?
Answer: A tragedy.

Good one.

Let me respond for the counselor. No. 9 had a case decided and published in the Illinois Supreme Court. He represented a hockey association sued by an injured player. The plaintiff alleged in part that the hockey association did not properly enforce its rules, thereby subjecting the plaintiff to a hit that was beyond the acceptable limits and caused plaintiff's injury. No. 9 won in the trial court on summary judgment (a tough task for a lawyer) on the argument that checks, hits, and injuries are a normal part of the sport, but that decision was reversed by the lower court of appeal.

No. 9 took the case to the Supreme Court, and the court agreed that the injury was part of the sport, even if it was the product of a check that was potentially a penalty. He won the case and the case was published.

Only a tiny percentage of lawyers have cases decided and published before the state's Supreme Court.

I remember that case. If I forgot to say so earlier, congrats, No. 9. :)

Good thing you were in Illinois. I imagine that on the same facts, the NJ Supreme Court would have let the question go to the jury.

Me, too. He is young enough to go back-to-back with your lefty and Bucfan's son, I would think.
