Bavar Law Group Launches New Web Site,

Reza Bavar, an attorney who specializes in the California Lemon Law, recently started a new company, the Bavar Law Group, and launched a new Web site to represent the firm's Lemon Law Partners team.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) June 1, 2008 -- The Bavar Law Group is a new company that specializes in various areas of the law including the California Lemon Law, DUIs, and traffic tickets. The firm represents its clients with a team of expert lawyers that bring years of experience and a commitment to personal service to the table. The firm's president, Reza Bavar, is not only busy with launch of this company, but also with the unveiling of his new Lemon Law Partners Web site.

Lemon Law Partners is a team of professional attorneys that specializes in the California Lemon Law, which has been Reza Bavar's main area of legal practice for the past eight years. Although the Bavar Law Group and the Lemon Law Partners are new projects, he offers many years of experience to his clients and only hires attorneys to work for him that have graduated from ABA law schools.

While some firms practice Lemon Law infrequently and are often unable to obtain the same results as firms that practice it on a daily basis, Lemon Law Partners handles countless lemon law claims against all of the major manufacturers, and nothing else. Some recent lemon law cases include a 2008 Cadillac STS, 2008 BMW 750i, 2008 Mercedes ML 350, 2008 Mercedes S550, 2007 BMW 335i, 2007 Audi Q7, 2007 Hummer H2, 2006 Volvo S40, 2006 Kia Spectra and 2006 Chrysler 300C, just to name a few. Each case has particular facts and circumstances that make it unique, so the team at Lemon Law Partners realizes that each case requires an approach that is tailored to its individual success.

Lemon Law Partners is based in Los Angeles, but they have offices statewide. In an age of faxes and FedEx, however, geography is less and less critical--what is critical is how well a law firm does its job. In the end, the success of each case is more critical than the zip code of the law firm. The attorneys at Lemon Law Partners have decades of combined experience successfully dealing with the lemon law in California. They have a history of dealing one-on-one with clients and working with them in a professional manner to achieve the best possible results.

About Lemon Law Partners:
With decades of combined experience, the attorneys of Lemon Law Partners have successfully represented consumers in hundreds of Lemon Law cases throughout California. Unlike many other law firms that claim to "specialize" in the lemon law, the attorneys at Lemon Law Partners have actually spent years learning and mastering the nuances of the lemon law--this knowledge and experience can mean the difference between a successful lemon law claim and a rejected lemon law claim. From day one, each claim will be handled by a skilled lemon law attorney that is not only knowledgeable about the California Lemon Law, but also specializes in it.

Aside from their greater 95 percent success rate, the team at Lemon Law Partners prides themselves on practicing lemon law as a specialty, involving themselves in every aspect of their clients' cases, achieving the best results possible, representing clients all over the state and only hiring attorneys from ABA law schools.

Haynes and Boone Secures Summary Judgment In Toll Collection Technology Patent Case

Haynes and Boone, LLP lawyers have obtained summary judgment in a patent-infringement case that could have cost client Electronic Transaction Consultants Corporation (ETC) more than $60 million and had the potential to jeopardize a system that currently collects about 80 percent of all electronic tolls in the United States.

Dallas (Vocus/PRWEB ) June 1, 2008 -- Haynes and Boone, LLP lawyers have obtained summary judgment in a patent-infringement case that could have cost client Electronic Transaction Consultants Corporation (ETC) more than $60 million and had the potential to jeopardize a system that currently collects about 80 percent of all electronic tolls in the United States.

Haynes and Boone, LLP
Haynes and Boone, LLP

The lawsuit (Northern District of Texas, Dallas division, Civil Action No. 3:05-CV-2316-K) was brought against ETC by TransCore, a unit of Roper Industries (NYSE:ROP). The lawsuit alleged ETC infringed four different TransCore patents that relate to the automatic electronic collection of tolls. TransCore sought more than $20 million in damages, which it sought to treble to $60 million.

The dispute arose from a request for bids to upgrade the toll-collection facilities for a major toll authority. Part of the project included providing the toll authority with enhanced open-road-tolling capability using automatic vehicle identification ("AVI") equipment manufactured by Mark IV Industries, a Canadian company, and sold to the toll authority by its domestic sister company, Mark IV IVHS. Open-road tolling allows a toll authority to collect tolls electronically from cars traveling at highway speeds.

Both TransCore and ETC bid on the project. ETC won and TransCore then sued ETC for patent infringement. TransCore claimed that the Mark IV equipment infringed its patents, and thus that ETC's "use" of the Mark IV equipment by installing and testing it during the project also infringed its patents.

U.S. District Court Judge Ed Kinkeade of the Northern District of Texas, Dallas Division, dismissed the lawsuit with prejudice. Judge Kinkeade held that, in settling an earlier patent-infringement suit against Mark IV (United States District Court for the Southern District of California, Case No. 99 CV 0902-L), TransCore had licensed Mark IV under its patents, and that Mark IV's sales of the allegedly infringing equipment exhausted TransCore's rights in the equipment.

A TransCore victory could have directly impacted the electronic toll-collection systems used by the E-ZPass Interagency Group ("IAG") of 24 toll agencies in 13 states with more than 10 million account holders. The IAG collects approximately 80 percent of all electronically collected tolls in the United States, and Mark IV supplies IAG-member toll authorities with electronic toll-collection equipment. Any toll authority (including those belonging to the IAG) or equipment installer using the Mark IV equipment in question potentially could have faced legal action by TransCore or been forced to pay license fees had TransCore won the lawsuit.

"We are gratified that the court agreed with our assessment that TransCore's case was without merit," said Russell Emerson, the Haynes and Boone partner who led the defense effort. "Now ETC, other equipment installers, and toll authorities can install, test, maintain, and operate the accused Mark IV AVI equipment without fear of reprisal from TransCore. Toll road users and operators across the country will benefit."

Added partner Phillip Philbin: "The technology that was at risk in this challenge has made a dramatic improvement in the lives of American drivers. We are proud to have successfully defended ETC in this important case."

Tim Gallagher, Chairman and Managing Director of ETC, stated, "When TransCore filed the suit against us, we immediately understood it held significant implications for our industry. While ETC was no doubt the first test case for TransCore, the dismissal of the lawsuit was an important victory for our industry as a whole."

At the heart of the court's judgment is the legal concept of patent exhaustion which, in this case, stems from the earlier TransCore-Mark IV settlement. As a part of this settlement, Mark IV had effectively purchased a license from TransCore to manufacture and sell the products in question. When Mark IV then sold the allegedly infringing equipment to the toll authority, it did so under TransCore's authority, exhausting TransCore's rights (if any) in the equipment. The following excerpts from the court's opinion discuss patent exhaustion and the protection it provides:

"The law is well settled that an authorized sale of a patented product places that product beyond the reach of the patent. … The patent owner's rights with respect to the product end with its sale. … Further, the purchaser of such licensed products is also free to use and/or resell the products, and such further use of those products is beyond the reach of the patent statutes. … An authorized sale of a patented product exhausts the patent monopoly as to that product. …(T)he settlement between TransCore and Mark IV would be meaningless if TransCore could still prevent Mark IV from manufacturing and selling the toll products by suing Mark IV's customers. … TransCore's argument that it can now sue Mark IV's customers is disingenuous, as it would render the rights granted to Mark IV … commercially worthless."

A copy of the full judgment is available from Haynes and Boone here.

New Spanish Language Interpreting Services for Under $1 a Minute

Lifelinks Interpreting Services breaks the $1.00 a minute price barrier offering Spanish language interpreting over the telephone for 99 cents a minute and Spanish Video-interpreting for $1.95 a minute to introduce our easy to install Spanish video-interpreting service, for a limited time only.

(PRWEB) May 30, 2008 -- Spanish language interpreting services are now available for less than one dollar thanks to Lifelinks newest service. Miscommunication, medical error, liability, "he said-she said", all factor into regular business transactions in our modern economy particularly in the healthcare industry. Now Lifelinks Interpreting Services offers Spanish telephonic interpreting for only $0.99 a minute and live interactive 2-way video Spanish for $1.95 a minute during regular business hours E.S.T.

For access all users need is a telephone for the former and a webcam/computer for the latter. Spanish language interpreters are experienced in medical, legal and business terminology. There is no minimum usage requirement nor is there equipment to lease. Users own and use their own equipment. Installation takes as little as 10 minutes and functions on a PC, MAC, laptop, Computer On Wheels (COW), Polycom, Tandberg,etc.,even wirelessly.

No longer does a hospital have to wait hours for a live interpreter to arrive at 3 am on Christmas or New Year's Eve in a snowstorm. No longer does the patient have to be wheeled through long, dark corridors in the middle of the night to where the video equipment is located, while immodestly dressed and cold. No longer does the hospital have to locate the key to the secure room where the video equipment is stored to protect it against theft. No longer does the hospital have to commit to long term leases of rapidly obsolete, heavy, bulky equipment. No longer does the hospital have to commit to minimum usage requirements. Lifelinks VRI's service is as close as a PC, laptop or tv.

In addition to Spanish language, Lifelinks provides interpretation services in the following languages: Albanian, Arabic, Armenian, Cantonese, Croatian, Farsi, French, French Canadian, French Creole, German, Hindi, Llicano, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Polish, Portuguese, Punjabi, Romanian, Russian, Samoan, Somali, Swahili, Tagalong, Turkish, Ukrainian and Vietnamese. Lifelinks VRI also offers most other languages over video from Afghani to Zulu, when provided with slightly more advance notice.

Because no special equipment is required, the service is available ubiquitously in any room where there is broadband. The service is also available on small desktop devices or mounted on a wall to save floor space. With one click the hospital, pharmacy, health care provider, immigration or law enforcement officer, courtroom, school, post office, bank, etc. can access a live interpreter. The advantages of video over telephonic interpreting are obvious: the interpreter can see and be seen thereby observing the body language of the foreign born individual and, conversely, providing a sense of comfort to the latter when he/she sees a person from her/his native country "live" on the monitor. Studies in hospitals utilizing remote interpreting services by JCAHO The Joint Commission of Accreditation of Health Care Organizations have shown a reduction in medical error, injury, miscommunication, liability and health care costs. The issues of cultural diversity are well known and of serious current concern to the Committee on Issues of Cultural Diversity of the A.M.A.

California Family Sues the Las Vegas Sands, LLC, Venetian Casino Resort, LLC, and Manpower, Inc. for Theft, Fraud and Gross Negligence (Case Number A562888)

A California family has moving truck stolen from the guarded and secured lot at the Venetian Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. According to lawsuit, Manpower Inc. was responsible for staffing the security personnel at the lot.

Las Vegas, Nevada (PRWEB) May 29, 2008 -- A California family has sued Las Vegas Sands, LLC, Venetian Casino Resort, LLC, and Manpower Inc. following the theft of their moving truck from the Venetian's secured parking lot.

Pictured above is the Krzyston Family outside of their 26-ft Penske moving truck the morning of their cross-country move from Chicago, IL
Pictured above is the Krzyston Family outside of their 26-ft Penske moving truck the morning of their cross-country move from Chicago, IL

The lawsuit alleges that while moving cross-country from Chicago to Los Angeles during the Thanksgiving holiday of 2006, the Krzyston Family made an overnight stay at the Venetian Hotel and Resort. The family was instructed by Venetian personnel to park their 26-foot Penske moving truck, loaded with all of their belongings, in a lot specifically used for oversized vehicles. They were assured that the lot was secure and guarded 24 hours a day. The next morning the family went to retrieve their truck, only to discover it was gone.

On Christmas Day 2006 the moving truck was found emptied, parked in front of a downtown Las Vegas hotel.

After a few months had passed and still no leads in the investigation, Las Vegas Metro Police used a sting operation and set up a decoy U-Haul moving truck rigged with their own GPS and other surveillance equipment. After a few hours the truck was stolen. Police followed the truck to a nearby storage facility where they made an arrest and found over 17 storage units packed with stolen items. Unfortunately, the Krzyston family was only able to recover less than 5% of their items. All of their furniture, electronics, family photos, and priceless mementos have never been found.

There are 10 causes of action listed in Case A562888 including Gross Negligence, Conversion, Contractual and Tortious Breach of the Implied Covenant of Good Faith and Fair Dealing, Constructive Fraud, Intentional and Negligent Infliction of Emotional Distress, and Negligent Supervision, Hiring and Training.

Complaint has been filed in the District Court of Clark County, Nevada.

Upon request the actual court complaint and documents.

Williamson Intellectual Property Law, LLC Announces Issuance of First Accelerated Patent Under New USPTO Process

The first client patent has issued under the new process for accelerated examination for a Williamson Intellectual Property Law, LLC client. The patent issued in less than eleven months.

Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) May 29, 2008 -- Williamson Intellectual Property Law, LLC announces its first client patent issued under the new U.S. Patent & Trademark Office (USPTO) Petition to Make Special (accelerated examination) process.

U.S. Pat. No. 7,377,565 for a Ball Collecting Apparatus and Method of Use Thereof was filed July 17, 2007 and has issued May 27, 2008, less than eleven months from filing. The new Petition to Make Special process was introduced by the USPTO in August 2006. Under this new process, a search is no longer optional and must be performed before filing the patent application. Further, the search is required to include foreign patents and publications. The goal of the process is to reach allowance of a patent application within one year from the filing date. Previously, the USPTO had a much more liberal process that was applicable to particular circumstances or publicly-beneficial inventions.

"In addition to requiring a search, substantial documentation and analysis is required for the fast track result, effectively detailing for the patent examiner the portions of each reference publication that are applicable to the claims of the patent" said Dr. Terry Williamson, Atlanta patent attorney, founder and managing member of the firm. "Normally, the patent process takes at least two years and often much longer, but this new process provides patent applicants with a way to get their patent much more quickly."

Williamson Intellectual Property Law, LLC serves clients nationwide from Atlanta, Georgia, providing services related to patents, trademarks, copyrights, trade secrets, licensing, litigation and corporate matters.

Roni Deutch Tax Center� Gives Tax Tips For Seniors

In honor of National Older Americans Month, Dan Tomlinson of the Roni Deutch Tax Center gives tax tips to seniors on

North Highlands, CA (PRWEB) May 29, 2008 -- Dan Tomlinson, Director of Tax for Roni Deutch Tax Center, is featured in a new article on where he offers tax tips for American seniors.

"This month is National Older Americans Month," notes Mr. Tomlinson of the Roni Deutch Tax Center. "And between social security, retirement benefits, and Medicare, the tax returns of seniors living in this country can get very messy, very quickly. I thought tax tips for seniors would make a great topic this month on"

Check out a few quotes from Mr. Tomlinson's tax tips below, or you can check out the full article at Top Tax Tips for Seniors.

"If Social Security is your only source of income, then you should have no tax due. Keep in mind, however, if you have other forms of income like a pension you may have to include some of your Social Security income on your tax return. The formulas are somewhat complex, but if one-half of your Social Security plus your other income is over a base amount ($25,000 for single filers, $32,000 for married filers) then the payments start to become taxable."

"Traditional IRA distributions must begin by April 1st of the year following the tax during which the taxpayer reaches age 70 ½. Failure to do so may result in a 50% excise tax of the required distribution. Care should be taken with Roth IRAs. For example, converting from a traditional to a Roth IRA may not be a good move since this conversion requires all taxes be paid in the year of the change. The Roth IRA will accumulate earnings that will later be tax free, but these earnings may not exceed the earlier taxes paid."

"Medical, nursing home, and in-home care expenses add up very quickly. When you prepare your tax return have a list of all of these expenses ready. Most pharmacies will provide you with a list of all prescriptions purchased during the year, which you may be able to deduct on your return. Keep a separate file for each type of expense. For example, one file for doctor visit co-pays, another for medical equipment (canes, walkers, hearing aids), and another for dental visits."

Millions of people recognize tax attorney Roni Deutch as television's "Tax Lady." She has been helping taxpayers nationwide resolve their tax liabilities for 17 years. As an industry leader, she has saved her clients tens of millions of dollars and has helped thousands of families settle their back taxes.

City of Hanford, California Agrees to Pay $15 Million to Settle a Negligence Claim by a Brain Injured Boy Represented by the Personal Injury Law Firm of Bisnar Chase

On May 8, 2008, A California court approved a $15 Million settlement in a municipal negligence claim against the City of Hanford, Ca., involving a bicycle-automobile accident. Jupiter Chan sued Hanford on behalf of his son, Christopher, who sustained a traumatic brain injury when he was struck by a car while riding his bicycle. The Chans' alleged that Hanford was negligent in maintaining the roadway and providing appropriate signage. Hanford settled with Christopher Chan for a lifetime stream of payments in excess of $15 million. California personal injury law firm Bisnar Chase represented Christopher Chan in the Superior Court of California, Kings County, Case Number 06C0206.

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 28, 2008 -- A California court signed a $15 Million out-of-court settlement of a municipality negligence claim against the City of Hanford, Ca. Jupiter Chan sued Hanford on behalf of his son, Christopher, who sustained a traumatic brain injury when he was struck by a car while riding his bicycle. The Chans' allege that Hanford was negligent in maintaining the roadway and providing appropriate signage. The week before trial, Hanford settled out-of-court with Christopher Chan for a lifetime stream of payments of $15 million. California personal injury law firm Bisnar Chase represented Christopher Chan in the Superior Court of California, Kings County, Case Number 06C0206.

On May 31, 2005, 14-year-old Christopher Chan was riding his bicycle when he was hit by an automobile at the intersection of 11th Avenue and Pepper Drive. According to court documents, before the accident Chan was a vibrant, inquisitive and intelligent eighth-grader. Now he has no short term memory; has the verbal ability of a 6-year-old; focuses on simple tasks for only 15 minutes at a time; and needs an attendant to help him with his everyday physical needs.

According to the lawsuit, this intersection was hazardous to school children crossing to and from school due to its physical makeup, no effective controls and no signage or crossing guard. Hanford's records showed the city was aware of these dangerous conditions but did not correct them.

Hanford settled with Christopher Chan for $15 million paid over his lifetime to cover his past and future medical expenses; therapy and round-the-clock care for the rest of his life. The parties were notified of the signing May 21st.

"Such a tragedy, that a traumatic brain injury has robbed Christopher Chan of a self-sufficient and productive life," said Brian Chase, partner in Bisnar Chase. "This wouldn't have happened if the elected officials of Hanford were doing their jobs by ensuring the public's safety. This case should serve as a warning to other elected city officials: do your jobs."
