New York Law Journal - This Week's News
  1. Deadline Extended: NYLJ GC Impact and In-House Legal Departments of the Year
    This contest recognizes outstanding work performed by general counsel and in-house legal departments over the past year, specifically how a corporate counsel's office, regardless of its size, came up with innovative programs, used ingenuity to solve problems or surmounted a scarcity of resources and still delivered high quality client service.
  2. Government Asks SCOTUS to Overturn Microsoft Decision on Overseas Data
    The Department of Justice on Friday asked the U.S. Supreme Court to overturn a landmark appeals court decision handed down last summer in favor of Microsoft Corp. that put company data stored overseas mostly out of reach of U.S. law enforcement.
  3. How Second Circuit's 'Stadnick' Decision Provides Securities Clarity
    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Second Circuit added a valuable point of clarity in securities cases dealing with material omissions this past week, even if 'Stadnick v. Vivint Solar' did little to change how most attorneys say they plan to approach the law.
  4. Tankleff's Suit Over Murder Convictions Gets Green Light
    Martin Tankleff, who spent 17 years in prison before his conviction for his parents' murders was overturned and his charges were dismissed, is headed to court with his lawsuit against Suffolk County alleging police officers and county officials violated his constitutional rights.
  5. Conviction Over Internet Aliases Argued in Dead Sea Scrolls Case
    Under the plain language of New York's third-degree forgery statute, many of President Donald Trump's Twitter followers, the author of the Federalist Papers and others who have used pseudonyms could be prosecuted, an attorney for blogger and disbarred lawyer Raphael Golb argued Friday before a federal appeals court. Such a broad reading would be unworkable, even absurd, attorney Ronald Kuby said in argument to a federal appeals panel.
