Verdict in Google, Oracle trial does not mean end of case

The decision to appeal a jury verdict in a civil trial is often a complicated one, especially when it comes after a lengthy court battle or involves complex technology or terminology. In such cases, it is possible that circumstances would permit the filing of an appeal. Appealing a verdict can add yet more length and expense to an already exhausting dispute; however, when the stakes are high and potentially involve a significant amount of money, an appeal may be worth the time and effort for Las Vegas businesses.

What should you know about space heater safety?

Once the weather starts getting colder, a great deal of attention is placed on heating safety, particularly regarding electricity, heaters and fireplaces. Even in Las Vegas, where it rarely gets too cold during the winter, you might want to heat up a room or two with a space heater. When used properly, space heaters can be an effective way to heat a small area without having to run up your heating bill. However, if defective or used incorrectly, some space heaters may significantly increase your risk of burns or fire.

Last week’s post discussed the ways in which libel and slander can hurt your business.

However, before you decide on legal action, you will need to understand the difference between a reviewer who has a legitimate complaint and one who is truly committing libel.
