In a case revolving around the quirks of Qatari arbitration law, U.S. military contractor Dyncorp is trying to stop a federal judge in Washington from enforcing a $1.1 million award handed down by the ICC International Court of Arbitration, arguing that it was invalidated by the emirate’s highest appeals court. The only catch? The arbitration took place in Lebanon, not in Qatar. In April, the Qatari-based International Trade and Industrial Investment Corporation, owned by Dr. Najeeb Al Nauimi and represented by Williams & Connolly partner John Buckley, filed an enforcement action at the U.S. District Court for the District of ...

Europe has become "a happy hunting ground" for foreign intelligence agents looking to kidnap terrorist suspects , the leader of the continent's top human rights group said Wednesday, urging European governments to crack down on operatives working for the CIA and other spy services. Terry Davis, chairman of the Council of Europe, also criticized several European countries for not being more forthcoming about whether they have helped the CIA carry out extralegal counterterrorism operations on their soil. These include the secret detention and abduction of suspected members of al-Qaeda. "I strongly support ... market research, surveys and trends

"If an attorney is under an ethical rule to effectively serve the client, is he or she not also under a duty to educate the client about ADR?" Gerald Phillips outlines the benefits of suggesting alternatives to litigation-- such as mediation and arbitration-- to clients, and probing further, investigates the question of whether attorneys should be disciplined if they fail to inform clients about the availability of ADR processes. There is a continuing debate among lawyers as to whether the failure to consult with the client about the availability of ADR to resolve disputes would be improper, constituting malpractice ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Individual employer-imposed employee arbitrati on agreements have been extensively analyzed since the U.S. Supreme Court validated them in Gilmer v. Interstate/Johnson Lane Corp. in 1991.1 Gilmer officially endorsed an employer's ability to condition a worker's employment on the employee's agreement to arbitrate federal statutory disputes.2 Ten years later, the Court held in Circuit City Stores, Inc. v. Adams, that the Federal Arbitration Act applied to these agreements.3 These individual employment arbitration agreements are typically drafted by employers to ensure that certain employee grievances or issues go to ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

The plaintiff claims that the court should have vacated the award on the basis that the arbitrator exceeded his authority in determining that the defendant terminated the employment of Patricia Russo in accordance with the provisions of the parties' collective bargaining agreement (agreement). We affirm the judgment of the trial court. The record reveals the following undisputed ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

A rather nice line from Judge Judy (supposedly)
She seems to be way too judgmental. It appears to be that whenever she is ruling on a case the only thing that she is doing is trying to mock folks who have come to curt. It appears to me that she has decided even before hearing both sides of the argument. You may not agree with this but this is what I have ALWAYS thought about her.

So perhaps they are mostly for entertainments purposes! I understand that you might like her, but here is a few quotes about her that I fully ...
