  1. Females now rule over every appellate court in Indiana, and from the federal southern district, as well as at the head of many judicial agencies. Give me a break, ladies! Can we men organize guy-only clubs to tell our sob stories about being too sexy for our shirts and not being picked for appellate court openings? Nope, that would be sexist! Ah modernity, such a ball of confusion. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QmRsWdK0PRI

  2. I read the line "Quigley offered another means to introduce texts. “I have witnessed and been involved in depositions where someone asks someone else to take a cellphone out and read a series of messages,” he said. “What it did was ultimately preserve the fact that there were these communications.” That is not true. A message can be created and sent to a phone looking like it came from another phone, when in actuality it didn't. You must take the totality of the available data from all sources in order to judge what has happened. As far as in house people doing the phone investigation or pulling messages. Someone from a large local firm told me one time "we need to be one step removed from things like this, that's why we go out of shop" I just can't fathom a law firm using an in house IT person to do work on a case or a potential case when you can be called to task on that.

  3. This victory was achieved through the efforts of an outstanding team including my partner Henry Price, who has been a leader in the fight to protect landowners’ rights for over 15 years, our associate Brad Catlin who handled the cross-examination of Sho-Me’s CEO at trial, Kathleen Kauffman who has partnered with our firm in many fiber optic class actions, and our extraordinarily helpful local counsel in Missouri, Heidi Vollet and Fred O’Neill. The verdict was for S1.88 per foot per year, which means for the average-sized parcel of 1,180 feet, a recovery of $2,218 per year or $22,184 for the ten years of trespass that was at issue. More than anything personal to me, this was a victory for the protection of individual property rights.
