THE CASE WHEN THE TABLES WERE TURNED

TASA ID: 408

When I was recommended by my own attorney to one of his colleagues, I found myself in an awkward situation. It was awkward because I didn’t want to return any obligations which may have jeopardized my relationship with my counsel and which may require that I ‘find’ I disagreed with my suggested role as a consultant. Regardless, I was introduced to the attorney who represented the husband in a pending divorce case.  Study of the situation revealed that there was an abundance of money involved, and the ‘departing’ wife wanted a large share of it all.  The husband wanted to mitigate his obligations.

Difference Between Licensing and Franchising

TASA ID: 11532

Many businesspeople and professionals think that franchising and licensing are the same, but the fact is that they are different. Given the prevalence of franchising and the interstate, national, and even international scope of so many franchise networks today, attorneys need to know about potentially applicable federal, state, and foreign franchise laws. Franchise sales in the United States are subject to dual regulation at the federal and state level, depending on where the parties reside or do business. The federal franchise sales law, originally adopted in 1978 and overhauled in 2007 regulates franchise sales in all 50 states, including wholly intrastate transactions, per the 2007 version of 16 C.F.R. § 436 (hereinafter “Amended FTC Rule”).

Defamation Defense: Is There a Third “Bite of the Apple” Available?

TASA ID: 2156

In defamation cases, there are two basic “tried and true” defenses utilized in lawsuits, whether the charge is libel, slander or both.  The first is “truth” because one of the elements that must be proven in a defamation lawsuit is the falsity of the statement.  Therefore, if the statement is true, there is no basis for defamation.

The Thunder Rolls and Flights Delay

Why Thunderstorms Affect Air Travel

TASA ID: 9740

Approaching the Topic

It is eleven o’clock in the evening as a regional jet makes its approach to the runway at Chicago O’Hare International Airport. The 65-seat jet is just one of many planes in sequence to land. Suddenly, a call is heard over the radio as a Boeing 747 cargo plane aborts its approach to land and climbs to safety. A shift in wind has prevented the large jet from landing and has forced its crew to circle back for another try.

Meanwhile, the regional jet is beginning to rock aggressively, as it enters that same area of turbulence and windshear (rapidly changing wind speed and/or direction), which extends all the way to the runway. The small craft is thrown about as the pilots are forced to turn off the autopilot and fly the plane by hand.
After several minutes, the plane lands, just as another small jet (further back in line) gives up and climbs away. Within minutes, the airport is overtaken by an approaching thunderstorm, with alarms sounding and staff quickly moving passengers into tornado shelters. Eventually, the all clear is given and activities resume.

While the night eventually ended without incident or injury, it stands as a reminder of the power of thunderstorms and the threat they pose to humans on the ground and in the air.
