High court to hear arguments in Va. redistricting case
Opinions | 2016/02/02 00:41
The U.S. Supreme Court will soon hear arguments in the case over Virginia's congressional map.

The Richmond Times-Dispatch reports that arguments before the high court have been set for March 21.

The court has agreed to take up an appeal by Republicans in Virginia's congressional delegation. They're asking the court to reverse a decision by a three-judge panel that said lawmakers in 2012 illegally packed too many black voters into the 3rd Congressional District.

The new map could help Democrats win the 4th Congressional District, represented by Republican Rep. Randy Forbes

Republicans have also asked the U.S. Supreme Court to put a new congressional map for Virginia on hold and allow the 2016 elections to proceed under the old boundaries.



EU court dismisses Barcelona football trademark case
Opinions | 2015/12/09 17:28
A European Union court has rejected an attempt by Spanish soccer giant Barcelona to have part of its club crest registered as a European trademark.
   
Known best for its passing game, Barcelona tried last year to have the outline of its badge registered for use on things like stationery, clothing and sports activities.

The attempt failed so the club went to court.

But the Luxembourg-based EU court dismissed the case on Thursday, saying that "none of the characteristics of the sign at issue contains any striking feature which is liable to attract the attention of consumers."

The court added: "In fact, the mark sought will rather tend to be perceived by consumers merely as a shape and will not enable them to distinguish the proprietor's goods or services."





Lawyer: Don't judge Chicago officer based on shooting video
Opinions | 2015/11/24 04:42
An attorney for a white Chicago police officer who shot a black teenager 16 times says his client acted lawfully and urges the public not to rush to judgment based solely on a video of the shooting that's to be released within days.

Attorney Dan Herbert told reporters Friday that Officer Jason Van Dyke is — in his words — "scared to death." Herbert says the officer is concerned about the safety of his wife and two school-age children in the event the video prompts violence.

A judge on Thursday ordered the city to release squad car dashcam video of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald's 2014 shooting.

Herbert says the video doesn't capture the whole confrontation.

Van Dyke has been stripped of his police powers, but remains at work on desk duty.



Starting Up: The Balanced Approach
Opinions | 2015/09/12 18:12

The last two decades have been a period of metamorphosis for the world wide web. The development of new technologies has not only made the web more advanced but also more accessible as well. Just as with law in the United States, societal shifts pave way for new standards and values in the world of digital marketing as well. At one point in time the Constitution was sufficient according to modern standards and then a series of Amendments over time were passed to tailor to the changing American landscape. Technology is not all that different.

Websites used to be simpler. A web address in itself once gave potential clients the impression that you meant business. Content was always valuable but the user experience was not emphasized by many, designers did the best they could with what they had. Over the years, new technologies have re-shaped the way we seek information, interpret information and ultimately make important decisions (such as retaining an attorney). With this shift comes a slew of new criteria and much ground to cover. For sole practitioners and small firms who don’t have an online presence, the thought of launching a stellar website can be daunting. You need a powerful logo, SEO , a secure means of collecting information, custom functionality, google analytics, mobile responsiveness and the list goes on.

When the goal of your website is to generate business, the immediate concern of most attorneys is being found. Who doesn’t want to be found? Solidifying your presence online is the goal but how exactly is it done? The answer is by taking a balanced approach, this means investing time and resources prudently. Many professionals, including attorneys just want to rank high and rank fast. If only it was that simple, there wouldn’t be tens of thousands of SEO Experts or Managers on networks such as LinkedIn. Lets think of your website as a business, a storefront in particular. Being on the 1st page of a Google Result in your region is the equivalent of sitting on prime real estate in your city or town. Lots of foot traffic, accessible from public transportation and being at a major intersection can’t hurt. Being there is one thing, but remaining (and thriving) there is entirely different. Take the case of the store or cafe that is in a heavily populated area, sure people may walk by or even enter, but do they stay? Do they make purchases? What do they buy? Do they return after making a purchase or recommend it to a friend?

Now consider those answers and the factors that influence them. It’s about the experience the store or site provides. Don’t be the shop owner who watches the shelves collect dust as groups of people enter and exit your shop before you can ask them what they need. When applied to the world wide web and particularly the niche of analytics, this is known as a bounce rate. If your being found frequently but not generating the business you desire, there is a problem. Thankfully, there is a solution as well. It lies in optimizing your website while using the information the valuable tools we have at our finger tips, provide us.
