How Long Do I Have to File a Personal Injury Lawsuit?

Posted by Paul Tennison, Summer Associate, Cole Law Group

Introduction

A concept that may be unfamiliar to those who do not have extensive experience with the United States court system is that of the rules governing how long a plaintiff has to bring a lawsuit after an injury. The way this works in practice is that plaintiffs' attorneys are aware of these rules and ask questions from potential clients to ensure that a statute of limitation will not prevent the bringing of a lawsuit. Similarly, one of the first things defendants' attorneys check after receiving a new lawsuit is all of the defenses they can raise, including a defense that the statute of limitations has run and therefore bars the cause of action brought by the plaintiff. See Klehr v. A.O. Smith Corp., 521 U.S. 179 (1997) (discussing the doctrine of the statute of limitations in a RICO case).

The Tennessee Supreme Court Interprets "reasonable Purpose" Under The Parental Relocation Statute

On March 16, 2017, the Tennessee Supreme Court held in Cassidy Lynne Aragon v. Reynaldo Manuel Aragon that a father who spent more time than his former spouse with their child could relocate to a new state with the child because of employment considerations and proximity to extended family.

The Argument For Russia

I.Introduction

I begin this article not in the present, but seventy-seven years ago on a windswept North Carolina beach shortly before dawn. Overnight, commando units of the German Wehrmacht, launched from a large wolfpack of submarines offshore, have begun seizing control of the Barrier Islands. After nearly two years of planning, on June 22, 1941, German High Command is finally in a position to launch their invasion of the United States of America.

U.s. Copyright Law Digital Takedown And Notice Procedures: Are They Effective And Fair?

In a five-minute video appeal posted February 21 and available for viewing at https://vimeo.com/204940925/ce417a2098, Nashville music producer T Bone Burnett recently urged the U. S. Copyright Office to close safe harbor loopholes in Section 512 of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Current provisions in the DCMA require that music creators identify and request removal of pirated material from internet search engines and video services. A multitude of prominent artists including Sir Paul McCartney, Lionel Richie, Taylor Swift and Steven Tyler have previously called for copyright reform. The U.S. House Judiciary Committee will consider more stringent copyright legislation later this year.

The Ten Laws Of Cyberwarfare

Americans don't seem to agree about much these days, but I think most people would describe the year 2016 as worrisome and disheartening. Our country endured a divisive and rancorous presidential election. We lost notables such as Judge Anthony Scalia and astronaut John Glenn, pop culture icons Gene Wilder and Carrie Fisher, musicians Prince and David Bowie, and sports figures Muhammed Ali and Arnold Palmer. Good jobs were scarce, small businesses were struggling, healthcare costs were rising, and school debts were mounting. We were reminded daily by politicians and the media that our society as we know it has fallen under the shadow of a persistent threat of terrorism.

Is It Illegal to Participate in Cyberbullying?

thumbnail.pngWhile previous generations may have observed or been subjected to domineering torment by others, the word "bully" today encompasses much more than a mental image of Biff from Back to the Future or John Bender from The Breakfast Club. Bullies no longer resemble their cinematic portrayals, and it is now much more difficult to withdraw from an environment in which bullying occurs. Current technology and our growing social media presence make the bullying dynamic much harder to contain and much harder to ignore. Today's online environment is a place where bullying has instant, widespread, and permanent effects and where bullies can attack their victims 24-hours-a-day.

Should The Public Have Access To Donald Trump's Divorce Records?

American citizens have learned a lot about our two presidential candidates in recent months as they make their run for the White House. We have learned the good, the bad, the ugly and just about everything else in between with regard to Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. However, there is one source of information the voters and the media have not been able to get ahold of and that is Donald Trump's divorce records concerning his 1990 divorce from Ivana Trump.
