“There is such a thing as a spirit of divorce and you see circles of friends all divorcing at the same time.” “Are you serious? How can you go back to your husband?” This woman was so angry upon hearing that a friend was going back to her husband after his infidelity that she was shaking. The two women had gotten together at a restaurant for breakfast. The extramarital affair was widely known. “It would be stupid to go back!” the wife’s friend insisted.  The husband was repentant and wanted to save their marriage. The couple were working with Greg […]

Shamed “Today” host Matt Lauer is “bending over backwards” to give his soon to be ex-wife Annette Roque everything she wants in their divorce — including a multimillion-dollar payout — because he feels so guilty for cheating with multiple women at work, according to friends. Lauer — who was axed by NBC bosses in November for a string of inappropriate affairs — has already agreed to pay Roque, his wife of nearly 20 years, up to $20 million, Page Six can reveal. The couple are now getting along amicably, the friends tell us — and are both spending time at their 12-bedroom Hamptons pile, Strongheart Manor, as they prepare […]

Listen to this article Copyright © DrugPatentWatch. Originally published at Improve Your Litigation Success, Predict Settlement Terms, and Write Better Patents by Analyzing Patent Challenges Litigation related to drug patents, whether it be direct patent challenges, contract disputes, or other cases, can provide direct intelligence (through disclosures of competitive intelligence) or indirect intelligence through exposure of successful and failed tactics.

Don’t Repeat Failed Tactics The most immediate use of litigation history is to examine the failed tactics of prior patent challengers. For example, the […]

David Perla Among the handful of what I would call “peace of mind” questions that U.S. lawyers new to commercial litigation finance routinely ask me when they are considering financing for their clients or their firms, probably the most common is some form of the following: “What impact does working with a provider of litigation finance have on control of litigation and settlement decisions?” I’m pleased to be able to answer, very simply, “none.” In the United States, commercial litigation finance providers largely exert no control over litigation related decisions or settlement. Control of these decisions remains precisely where it […]

Although they’ve been separated for nearly three years, actors Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck are in danger of having their divorce case dismissed. According to an E! News report, the famous couple filed for divorce last year, but their case isn’t final. In fact, the entire divorce could be thrown out due to missing paperwork. Garner officially petitioned for the divorce last year, and on Friday, she received her third notice about the missing paperwork. Neither Ganer nor Affleck appear to feel any great urgency to end their now over 13-year marriage. When they originally separated in 2015, they had […]

In rare move, St. Paul City Council meets to discuss pending K-9 bite litigation

In an unusually expeditious move, the St. Paul City Council is scheduled to meet behind closed doors Wednesday afternoon to discuss “threatened litigation” for last month’s K-9 attack on an innocent bystander. The meeting comes despite the fact that Glenn Slaughter’s attorneys haven’t filed a claim or suit seeking damages. Nor is city Attorney Lyndsey Olson aware of a “demand letter” from them, an even lower stakes entry point to compel settlement discussions. Slaughter’s attorney, Andrew Noel, said they’re still gathering medical information and awaiting police reports and footage before a lawsuit will be filed. Slaughter, 33, was leaving for […]
