International Arbitration Loses Its Grip

This particular arbitration case dates back to the early 90s, when Texaco (later acquired by Chevron) presented claims against the government of Ecuador over “ certain commercial disputes .” Chevron’s claims never received a ruling, so this three-year-old international arbitration case before The Hague came out in Chevron’s favor, to the tune of some US$700 million. Though the ruling has nothing directly to do with the arbitration request Chevron filed against Ecuador in 2009 regarding the class action pollution lawsuit, it might have an impact in the sense that both arbitrations were brought through the ...

He moved into management at Newcastle in 1992, again returning the club to the top-flight, as Second Division champions.

After a spell at Fulham , he took charge of the England team in 1999 but resigned in the autumn of 2000, following a loss against Germany in World Cup qualification (this was also the last game at the old Wembley ...

International Arbitration Loses Its Grip
Arbitration was supposed to be the solution for international companies seeking to resolve disputes without expensive and drawn-out court battles. But it is starting to look more like the problem. Once a swift, cost-efficient method of resolving international commercial disputes, the process is now often bogged down in long and costly legal proceedings. “It now takes longer, costs more and has many more steps in the procedures,” says Joseph R. Profaizer, of counsel to Paul, Hastings, Janofsky & Walker in Washington, D.C. “There is now broader discovery, larger damages requests, longer briefing schedules, much ... market research, surveys and trends
Clout St: Chicago police raises to average 2 percent as City Hall ...
Rank-and-file Chicago police officers will get a raise that is significantly less than the one Mayor Richard Daley pulled off the negotiating table last year under an arbitrator’s decision released this morning, a source familiar with the decision said. The raises average 2 percent a year for five years. That's less than the 3.2 percent a year for five years that Mayor Richard Daley pulled off the negotiating table in March 2009. That offer had been on the table for a year, but the Fraternal Order of Police was trying to get more. FOP President Mark Donahue declined to comment, saying he would speak at a 3 p.m. news ... market research, surveys and trends

Fewer Pitches Not The Answer
In view of the latest prognosis for Stephen Strasburg, Rob Dibble probably thinks his job security isn't too good right about now. But this isn't meant to call out Dibble because he called out Strasburg for not sucking it up and pitching through a little discomfort, only to find out later (during his "leave of absence") the young phenom had serious ligament damage. Dibble made a mistake calling out the kid prematurely, but the point he was really trying to make is pitchers are not being pushed to anything close to their physical limits. And he has a point -- a very good point. In fact, Strasburg's injury may even ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Thoughts on Schobel's release, Sabres excuses and more
Joe Pinzone talks about Aaron Schobel's release, training camp, the Bills' history running a 3-4, Tim Kennedy and other things that are on his mind. No surprise here that the Bills decided to release Aaron Schobel. Let's go over the reasons why it was a smart move. 1) He's overrated and isn't worth the 8 million dollars he would earn this year. Schobel has always been susceptible against the run and it seems like the majority of his sacks have come off blitzes. 2) He's 32-years old and the team is rebuilding...not a good mix. The Bills need to find as many young players as possible (Maybin) that can ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Slashdot | How Can Cybersquatters Be Evicted, Cheaply?
"Slashdot has covered stories where big mean companies threw poor little people off of web sites with names too close to that of the company. But what about when you are the company and the cybersquatter isn't even using the name? I have a small (ok, basically just me) company. The web site that exactly matches my company name has been registered since 2001, which is before I legally registered my company name but after I started doing business. Despite being registered for 4 years, the site is still nothing but a pile of banner ads - not even a hint as to why they want that particular name for their site. I contacted ...
