Arrogance also causes some outstanding tournament players to be ‘live ones’ in cash games. Messages that harass, abuse or threaten other members; have obscene or otherwise objectionable content; have spam, commercial or advertising content or links may be removed and may result in the loss of your Card Player Account. Deposition practice, for instance, is a perfect example. The court bifurcated the case, with liability being tried first. And they wisely advised their client accordingly, by all appearances. When some of them make the final table, their side-game opponents cheer them on. The Post quotes one former player thusly: “If you don’t play, they don’t pay. Do you win more money? The scope, accuracy and admissibility of expert testimony can become key, even outcome determinative at times, in ERISA cases, particularly breach of fiduciary duty cases. You need actors to make them happen. The Post’s survey data should make clear that is not the case. That’s why I play only for cash.” So what? This is because, in general, breaches of fiduciary duty related to an ERISA plan affect all participants and beneficiaries in the same manner, which renders the ERISA violation at issue common to all members of a proposed class. The lawyers on the other side of the case, clearly lacking even a passing familiarity with the concepts of behavioral economics and choice architecture, agreed to the structure that we proposed, and, eventually, the jury did in fact find in my client’s favor as it worked its way through the list of questions, somewhere about halfway through the eight or nine questions. It’s a cautionary tale all too common among NFL players who aren’t properly equipped to manage the wealth they earn while playing in the league or deal with their newfound fame. Well, as if there weren’t enough barriers to successfully prosecuting breach of fiduciary duty actions under ERISA, it turns out that you also can’t do it if the fiduciary’s errors consisted of wrongfully withholding benefits and turning them over to the IRS as tax payments.
For thousands of years wise people have spent less than they made. Frankly, the fear that ownership will terminate them if they are injured and can’t work sounds more like an issue from late nineteenth century mining in this country than from a modern workplace (if you have ever read J. Anthony Lukas’ “Big Trouble,” than you know what I am talking about; if you haven’t read it, you should). Some older pros have severe health problems or die prematurely because they can’t afford treatments or preventative health care. A: Ouch. But that’s the default.”. What’s she say? For many lawyers, as you might imagine, the special questions get short shrift over the course of the night, in favor of time spent on the jury instructions and the closing (trial lawyers are all hams, of course, so naturally writing the closing almost always takes pride of place in prioritizing these items). These analysts are not, however, doing anything more than illuminating facts that astute observers, after observing thousands of games and the variations inherent in them, have previously mastered based only on decades of watching the game and its possible outcomes in different circumstances, without ever reducing that knowledge to mere numbers and statistical formula. Fast Talk podcast "Races are like films. In fact, I am quite certain it was my stellar closing that won the case (every trial lawyer thinks every jury case they have ever won turned on their closing, and that every jury trial they have ever lost turned on legal errors by the judge), but the structure of the jury questions certainly didn’t hurt. This caught my eye, partly because I sat on a panel recently discussing the fiduciary exception to the attorney-client privilege in the context of ERISA litigation. I don’t want to turn this into a sports law blog, or – heaven forbid – an NFL blog (heaven knows, there are more than enough of those), but the latest work of the Washington Post on player injuries was too good to ignore. You may never have a catastrophic losing streak, but variance virtually guarantees that you won’t always beat the game. This series will analyze why it happens so often and recommend the ways to avoid it. One aspect of this line drawing that has always held great interest for me is the economic loss doctrine, which holds that contractual liabilities cannot be used as the basis for prosecuting tort claims. This is great. Bifurcation forces the plaintiff to reestablish that credibility, and any sympathy, all over again in front of a new jury, and causes the plaintiff to lose whatever momentum led to the liability verdict in the first place. Procedural barriers to prosecuting particular claims can be the end of a case, without anyone ever hearing the merits of the dispute, unless a plaintiff can hurdle them. For the most part, though, depositions involve witnesses who have a known role in the events at issue and in those instances, I almost never ask a question that doesn’t already fit my plan for one of three things: what I am going to prove to obtain summary judgment, what I am going to use to prevent the other side from obtaining summary judgment, or what I am going to prove at trial. Too many pros have been busted by the enormous costs of an illness or accident. Judges, as a general rule, won’t allow this to the same extent in court. Now, the truth is that, before ever seeking the discovery that is at issue, I will have long since thought through the subject and become convinced that the evidence in question, once brought out, is far more likely to help my case than to harm it; the reality, from a tactical perspective is that, otherwise, I would not have pressed the point in the first place, with me going so far as to ask a court or arbitration panel to order production of the witness, or documents, or whatever else is in question. A few years back, when behavioral economics and choice architecture were first moving out of the theoretical and into practical application in retirement plan work, I was trying a long case in front of a jury and, right before the end of the trial, the judge asked the parties to agree upon special questions for the court to submit to the jury. A spinning teacher of mine once looked out at the class the day after a playoff or Super Bowl loss by the Patriots (I forget which) and said, in the middle of a sprint: “Guess what, Brady’s still a multimillionaire married to a super model.” Sort of sums up my feelings about the whole thing right there. There is a cliché relevant to both representing corporations as outside counsel and to being an in-house lawyer, which concerns the fear – sometimes legitimate – of business folk that the lawyers just say no about everything they want to do, rather than telling them how to do what they want to do. You’ll also die a lot sooner. I have done a fair bit of patent and copyright litigation (especially the latter) over the years, almost exclusively for defendants, and it is a lot harder to actually win and recover significant money on copyright infringement claims than many people – including most lawyers – believe.
Everyone involved here is too experienced not to have seen this risk from a mile away – as trial lawyers like to say, this was no one’s first rodeo (this is a cliché lawyers at trials usually resort to so as to reassure the trial judge that the lawyers can be trusted to work something out among themselves without the judge’s involvement). He spent three years in the state penitentiary for grand theft auto.
