A Weblog?
The column to the right, is a news/editorial/comment column. It is a weblog, also know as a blog.

The weblog thing comes from www.blogger.com, which offers us a convenient way to manage the posting, administratively. You don't really need to know all of that, but we have included this explanation so that you won't be confused by the term "blog".

Another important topic here is that since the column includes editorials and comments, you can be sure that we are just exercising our free speech rights as guaranteed by the Constitution and as not yet abridged by a reactionary opportunistic vocal minority.

opinions, everybody's got one...
If you would like your opinion published here, forward it for consideration and editorial review to: info@delawoffice.com.
Or add a comment. Comments by: YACCS

We encourage the exchange of responsible ideas.

loser pays

 
Overlawyered pointed out this 9th Circuit case in which the District Judge made the loser pay for the expenses of the Respondents in defending against his frivolous claims.

It seems that the frivolous litigant sued the airport and its municipality because his private jet exceeded their weight restrictions. He had to use a smaller private jet to fly in and visit his vacation home. Awwwww!

The Court of Appeals remanded for a better explanation of the District Court's method of calculation... but it doesn't look like that's going to be a problem.


Fighting Back Against Red Tape Hassles

 
In a story i found on Ernie the Attorney, a person experiences great difficulties in cancelling his AOL account, and he gets it all on tape! Here's his TV interview, with audio from the event.

Massive publicity from this prompted an AOL apology and a firing of the CSR, along with a melt-down of the ISP-Server where the sound bit was originally hosted.
