With approximately 60 million blogs now on line and some unknown number of legal weblawgs by lawyers and legal pundits who have too much time on their hands, what in the world am I doing here? Well, here's what: the concept and focus of this blawg isn't me: it's you. This blawg is directed at the small to medium sized business person, the one-person general counsel office, or even the Fortune 500 company law department with scarcely any staff in its General Counsel's office -- you're the ones who seemingly need to know anything and everything, including anything and everything about litigation. And the purpose of this blawg is to talk to you -- about the myriad litigation issues that come up too frequently (ever is too frequently for the small business person) if you're doing business in California.
So, we'll talk about product liablity law, trademark and copyright, Proposition 65, employment, the Unfair Competition Law, and good old-fashioned contract law -- as interpreted in the rarified atmosphere of the California courts. We'll give tips and ideas about to do business in the rarified atmosphere of the golden state. And we'll both provide quick and dirty introductions to the law here and plain old gossip.
So, over the next few weeks, we'll try to justify your adding us to your newsreader, and let's just see what happens.
