    Since you have already been sued, you need to evaluate your options in the context of the pending litigation. Depending on which Federal Court is hearing your case, filing a re-examination may result in a stay of the action. This stay could last over five years while the USPTO evaluates your re-examination petition. The decision regarding whether to file a re-examination and if that re-examination will trigger a stay is very important and should be discussed at length with your counsel....

  2. What is a "Dead Docket" in GA Criminal Court, and what impact does it have on military/civilian health care services employment?

    Your question requires more facts about what actually happened in the Georgia case. Typically, whenever you resolve a criminal case, you are advised of your rights to further proceedings and told what you are agreeing to as part of the plea. In many misdemeanor cases, you can plead no contest or even guilty to a charge and not receive probation or a fine - so the penalty you received is not relevant. Review any paperwork you signed and it should tell you the nature of your plea. Finally,...

    One of the primary requirements of establishing that the data in question is a trade secret is a showing that the owner of the data took adequate steps to protect data as a trade secret. The burden of proving that the data is a trade secret rests with the person asserting the trade secret violation. If you have evidence that that data was not kept secret and was publicly available, that evidence will be important to your defense. Trade secret law is a fact intensive area, and without...

    The short answer is probably yes, but it depends on how you differentiate your mark from the original that you are basing it off of. You also need to check and see if anyone else is using that mark. For example, Kmart uses a stylized Rout 66 sign as a trademark for its clothing line.

    The answer to this question depends on what your probation was based on. If there was a pre-sentence report that was prepared in advance of your plea, and that report asked you to disclose any other crimes for which you had been accused, then your answers to that report will be important. Typically, if you disclosed the other charge and it was considered in conjunction with the grant of your probation, then there should be no impact - but this is a very fact specific question.

    The answer to this question depends on the state where you received the DUI. Many states have a "first offender" program. The requirements to be eligible for the program vary, but generally require that you have a BAC of less that 0.15, that no one was injured as a result of your driving and that your license is in good standing (i.e., not suspended at time of incident). If you meet these requirements, you may be eligible for a program that will require you to pay a small fee and restores...

    I have to assume that you no longer want to be in business with this person. Defending on where your LLC is formed, you can petition for dissolution of the LLC. In a petition for dissolution, the person seeking dissolution can typically ask to have the property a member improperly took count against his/her share of the remaining assets and/or capital contributions. For the record, I deal primarily with Delaware LLCs and these dissolutions are administered by a court that can consider facts...
