best seller 2009 108 pages 6 x 9 paper $79.95 (Regular) $64.95 (TIPS) PC: 5190448

This book is the only source that discusses the handling of “dangerous dogs” by the law and private associations. Today, many dogs are deemed dangerous not because of the traits of the individual animal, but on account of their breed alone. The authors explain why breed discrimination is immoral, unfair, and ineffective. Progressive approaches to better handling reckless owners and their dogs and strategies for prosecuting and defending dangerous-dog cases are offered. Topics include an overview of ordinances targeting reckless owners, the concept of canine profiling, the constitutionality of breed-specific legislation, enforcing and defending dangerous-dog laws, and information on dangerous-dog registries and hearings.

2009 201 pages 7 x 10 hardcover $199.95 (Regular) $184.95 (TIPS) PC: 5190445

Good trial lawyers know how to manage an effective—sometimes even artful—litigation process. Great trial lawyers know what it takes to win by “making their client’s version the truth.” In Powerful Deliberations: Putting It All Together for the Jury, G. Christopher Ritter distills the many lessons he has learned from working on hundreds of complex, high-profile civil and criminal cases to help you win at trial…what every client most values. Bringing together legal strategy, psychology, and persuasion theory, Ritter offers a fresh approach to trial preparation, one that focuses on how jurors learn, think, and deliberate. Ritter demonstrates how lawyers can turn jurors from neutral finders of fact into advocates for their client’s side. Whether a lawyer tries a few cases or many, and whether these cases are large or small, this book provides a trial-tested framework for building a stronger, more persuasive case.

When it comes to theft of trade secrets, infringement of trademarks or copyrights, breach of employee agreements and more, simple monetary settlements often fall short.

This extensive book explains the applicable standards of issuing TROs and injunctions and includes examples. The book provides step-by-step information on bonds and damages, the order itself, enforcement of injunctions and TROs, and the strategy and tactics of using them. Additionally, the book offers State Comparison Charts for injunctions and TROs, citing the differences in standards from state-to-state.

Litigating the Nursing Home Case By James T. O’Reilly The nursing homes of twenty-first-century America are lucrative investments largely because of their owners’ ability to control the consequences of misconduct or errors in patient care. Most homes do most tasks well, while others lag far behind. Cuts in Medicare and Medicaid drive down the rates of reimbursement payments for patients’ care, forcing the pragmatic accountants who run many nursing homes today into minimal compliance and minimal staffing.

Environmental Liability and Insurance Recovery is for the lawyer whose practice lies at the point where two involute areas of the legal profession – environmental law and insurance law – intersect. These areas of the law demand the mastery of an intricately involved set of concepts, definitions, rules, and regulations – all of which is continuously developing. Nevertheless, neither environmental law nor insurance law is wanting of systematic order. Indeed, it is the intent of this book to elucidate this order. More modestly, this book addresses a minute subset of the legal issues at the crossroads of environmental law and insurance law, namely, the multifarious ways in which a party may be exposed to environmental liability and how insurance coverage may provide financial support for such liability. Topics covered include: ➤➤

Statutory Liability, related to: CERCLA, the Resource Conservation & Recovery Act, Clean Air and Clean Water Acts
