The Reading List (No. 11)

I have not done a formal "Reading List" for a while, so I included a number of different subjects into the mix. Tomorrow or early next week, I'll have a case law update.

From the Volokh Conspiracy, Orin Kerr writes on the circuit split over the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act, as well as current legislative activity that may resolve issues inevitably destined for the Supreme Court.

John Marsh discusses the indemnification and advancement suit filed by Sergei Aleynikov in his ongoing $2.5 million legal fee adventure with Goldman Sachs. I wrote about this late last week and just happen to be dealing with this same issue in two suits of my own.

Today's Crain's Chicago Businesses discusses two non-compete disputes over doctors (urologists and obstetricians) pending in Cook County.

Epstein Becker & Green's blog discusses an unusual Texas case in which an employer lost a non-compete case due, at least in part, to its failure to sign the document. Another take on the same case from Seyfarth Shaw's blog...

Judge Richard Posner suggests on the Becker-Posner Blog reforms to both patent and copyright law. He previously wrote for The Atlantic on similar issues following dismissal of the Apple/Motorola Mobility suit, in which he sat as a trial judge by designation.

Also from the Seventh Circuit, Judge Diane Sykes' address to Marquette Law School featured comments on the late Judge Terence Evans, who died unexpectedly not long ago. Her remarks were very interesting and describe Judge Evans' clear, pragmatic style. The article can be downloaded from this site for free.
