Maryland Legal News on Cyber Monday

  • Under Armour sues Energy Armor, a company selling “negative ion bracelets” and other apparel, alleging copyright infringement. Really, negative ion bracelets? Who buys this stuff?
  • The 4th Circuit, long considered the most conservative circuit in the country, has definitely shifted to the left. This can’t be bad for those of us representing the injured.
  • A blind man says that after he and his guide dog were hit by a car, Baltimore paramedics wanted to leave the dog behind on the pavement and wouldn’t take the animal in the ambulance transporting the man to the hospital.
  • Oops. While Frank Conaway Sr. allegedly “brandished” a gun at blogger Adam Meister yesterday (say police, but not Conaway or Meister), his concealed-carry permit expired months ago.
  • Judge Roger Titus lets the racial gerrymandering case go forward. The group of black plaintiffs allege Gov. O’Malley and the legislature redistricted along racial lines in order to give Democrats an advantage.
