LEGAL MALPRACTICE – Tippi Hedren v. Allen
BRIEF – After Tippi Hedren was injured on a soundstage, her attorney admitted he was negligent in dismissing her personal injury case. But he argues that the jury award of nearly $1,500,000 was excessive, due to improper jury instructions on causation, erroneous rulings on the evidence of damages, and a purely emotional appeal to the jury. (Cal.Ct. App., 4th Dist.)
INTERNET LAW - Kirby v. Spark Networks USA LLC
COMPLAINT - A putative class action has been filed against Spark Networks USA LLC alleging violation of California Business and Professions Code in sending high volume unsolicited spam marketing e-mails misrepresenting the sender. (Super. Ct., Los Angeles County)
CONSTITUTIONAL LAW - D.M. v. Dep't of Justice
