This week is Thanksgiving, and you're going to be out of the office, but you're not really going to be out of the office, are you? Let's face it: Come Friday, you're going to be back on your computer, billing furiously. Even so, you'll still be at home, trying desperately...... […]
A while ago, we offered some advice on typography and typesetting, much of which we learned from reading Matthew Butterick's excellent book Typography for Lawyers. But we'd be remiss if we focused exclusively on the lawyer-end of readability. What about the courts? As the Seventh Circuit has made clear, it's...... […]
After the company Instant Tax Service was discovered engaging in a litany of deceptive and unlawful practices, the IRS had them shut down. ITS appealed, claiming it was a franchisor and not directly involved in the preparation of returns like its franchisees, and therefore couldn't be shut down. In this...... […]

Instead of pondering politics, they are wondering if the immigration overhaul, and other efforts that have been tossed around Congress, will...... […]
Man, this is a beautiful update. Android L/Lollipop (5.0) represents the biggest overhaul of the operating system since the jump from Gingerbread (2.x) to Ice Cream Sandwich (4.0). We talked about the visual overhaul after previews of the new "Material Design" interface leaked, and were especially intrigued by rumors of...... […]
Every year since 2004, Colorado's governor has recognized a "Colorado Day of Prayer." This isn't terribly unusual in itself; since 1952, Congress has established a "national day of prayer" and most other states do the same thing. But the Freedom from Religion Foundation doesn't like it. They object to the...... […]
Moving stinks, no matter what your budget or occupation. But for us, the lawyers, it's an even bigger pain: everybody, from the courts to the bar to clients, all need to be notified, there is no room for downtime, and everything needs to go according to plan so that you...... […]
