Однако, невзирая на современный уровень гнойной остеологии. Все произнесенное вынуждают исследователей продолжать поиски наиболее действенных способов исцеления. Амирасланов Ю. В связи с сиим представляется принципиальной разработка новейших хирургических способов.
Понятно, что на результаты исцеления влияют: резистентность организма, нрав микрофлоры, местные условия развития инфекции, причина развития остеомиелита, возраст нездоровых, локализация процесса, нарушения микроциркуляции, возникающие как при остром, так и разных формах приобретенного процесса, потому их исследование при разных формах остеомиелита остается актуальным Долганова Т. В крайние годы в лечении острого гематогенного остеомиелита получил способ щадящей декомпрессивной остеопер-форации дрелью либо спицей Киршнера для декомпрессии костномозгового канала в сочетании с дренированием параоссальных пространств.
Данный способ дозволил понизить частоту перехода острого процесса в приобретенный, но в то же время сам процесс остеоперфорации остается травматичным Привалов В. Секвестрнекрэктомия при приобретенных формах остеомиелита была и остается основной операцией с теми либо другими завершающими компонентами. По-прежнему ведутся поиски адекватных способов ликвидации остаточной костной полости, активно разрабатываются дезинфицирующие способы действия на эту полость.
Существенное продвижение вперед имеется в отношении оперативного исцеления посттравматического остеомиелита в связи с внедрением в практику компрессионно-дистракционных способов остеосинтеза, трансплантации костной ткани и пересадки сложных лоскутов на сосудистых связях. Но пока это не влияет на результаты исцеления остеомиелита в широкой практике Долганова Т.
Долголетнее течение остеомиелита с частыми обострениями осложняются амилоидозом внутренних органов практически у трети нездоровых Ломаченко И. Фактически нет исследований, посвященных ранешней диагностике острого гематогенного остеомиелита, минимапьно-инвазивным способам исцеления острых и приобретенных остеомиелитов.
Влияние высокоинтенсивного лазерного излучения инфракрасного спектра на морфологическую картину и течение остеомиелитического процесса исследовано недостаточно Абушкин И. Имеются только отдельные работы этого плана, но они не отыскали собственного широкого практического внедрения.
Имеющиеся методы стимуляции репаративных действий в костной ткани не постоянно эффективны, потому ведется поиск новейших методов и средств, содействующих созданию критерий для наилучшего заживления костной ткани, усиливающих интенсивность процесса остеогенеза и сокращение сроков репарации костных повреждений Башкатова H. Беря во внимание противоречивость данных литературы, высшую частоту хрони-зации опосля внедрения обычных способов исцеления, нередкую инвалиди-зацию пациентов, отсутствие единства взглядов в выборе способов ранешней диагностики и оптимального размера оперативного исцеления, как острого, так и разных форм приобретенного остеомиелита, углубленное исследование данной трудности является актуальным.
Таковым образом, разработка новейших способов оперативного исцеления остеомиелита и исследование причин, влияющих на результаты операции, является многообещающей неувязкой. Создать, научно обосновать и ввести в клиническую практику новейший минимально-инвазивный способ исцеления острого и разных форм приобретенного остеомиелита с применением высокоэнергетического лазерного излучения инфракрасного спектра для улучшения анатомо-функциональных результатов исцеления.
Изучить отдаленные результаты исцеления острого гематогенного и разных форм приобретенного остеомиелита с применением обычных способов. Создать характеристики лазерного излучения и методики щадящей чре-скожной лазерной остеоперфорации в лечении острого и разных форм приобретенного остеомиелита.
На базе цитоморфологических исследований изучить влияние лазерной остеоперфорации на динамику течения раневого процесса. Изучить нрав конфигураций бактериального пейзажа при обычных способах исцеления и опосля внедрения лазерного излучения. Изучить влияние лазерной остеоперфорации на состояние микроциркуляции и оксигенации мягеньких тканей при разных формах остеомиелита.
Изучить нрав морфологических конфигураций в костной ткани опосля лазерной остеоперфорации у нездоровых с приобретенными формами остеомиелита. Обосновать влияние высокоинтенсивного лазерного излучения инфракрасного спектра в режиме щадящей остеоперфорации на репаративный остеогенез в опыте и поликлинике. Изучить конкретные и отдаленные результаты исцеления и доказать достоинства предлагаемого способа исцеления острого гематогенного и разных форм приобретенного остеомиелита перед традиционными операциями.
Чрескожная лазерная остеоперфорация является малоинвазивным действенным методом исцеления острого гематогенного и разных форм приобретенного остеомиелита. Внедрение высокоинтенсивного лазерного излучения в лечении острого и разных форм приобретенного остеомиелита либо сочетание его с традиционными операциями дозволяет сделать лучше конкретные и отдаленные результаты исцеления данной категории нездоровых. Лазерная остеоперофорация содействует скорому и действенному понижению внутрикостного давления и уровня бактериальной обсемененности костной ткани, обеспечивая ликвидацию основного этиопатогенетическо-го механизма развития острого гематогенного остеомиелита у деток.
Высокоинтенсивное лазерное излучение инфракрасного спектра в режиме щадящей лазерной перфорации кости быстро и отлично восстанавливает микроциркуляцию, что сопровождается улучшением оксигенации тканей и стимуляцией репаративных действий в пораженном секторе конечности. Лазерная остеоперфорация при остром гематогенном и разных формах приобретенного остеомиелита содействует стимуляции остеогенеза, раннему и скорому восстановлению репарации костной ткани.
Научная новизна исследования Разработан новейший малоинвазивный метод исцеления острого гематогенного и разных форм приобретенного остеомиелита с помощью высокоинтенсивного лазерного излучения инфракрасного спектра методом закрытой чрескожной лазерной остеоперфорации. Определены адекватные характеристики лазерного излучения для щадящей закрытой лазерной остеоперфорации в зависимости от формы и стадии остеомиелита: импульсно-периодический режим излучения мощностью лазера инфракрасного спектра от 10 до 30 Вт с экспозицией — от 3 до 10 секунд.
Подтверждено, что при разработанных режимах не происходит глубочайших термических поражений мягеньких тканей и костей, а формирующиеся остеоперфо-рационные отверстия являются дренажными системами, приводящими к нормализации внутрикостного давления, что положительно сказывается на восстановлении микроциркуляции и оксигенации в тканях пораженного сектора конечности. Не считая того, лазерное излучение в силу собственного биофизического эффекта, владея массивным санирующим действием на костный мозг и окружающие ткани, содействует скорому понижению патологической концентрации высеваемых микроорганизмов.
На базе разработанной нами лазерной остеоперфорации предложен новейший малоинвазивный и обычной в выполнении метод хирургического исцеления костного и костно-суставного панариция. Применение данного способа позволило значительно сделать лучше анатомо-функциональные результаты исцеления. Подтверждено, что щадящая чрескожная лазерная остеоперфорация в предложенных режимах содействует стимуляции репаративного остеогенеза как в опыте у животных, так и при клиническом применении у пациентов.
Установлено, что в ответ на лазерное действие в тканях пораженного сектора конечности улучшается большая скорость капиллярного кровотока и оксигенация тканей, что содействует стимуляции действий тканевой репарации. Подтверждено, что лазерная остеоперфорация содействует сокращению эксу-дативной фазы воспаления в патологическом очаге и скорому переходу в продуктивную фазу с формированием настоящей грануляционной ткани. Он дозволяет значительно прирастить длительность безрецидивного периода у нездоровых с приобретенными формами остеомиелита, тем самым, сократив частоту рецидивов.

В случае затруднений начать введение адреналина лучше внутримышечно в дельтовидную мышцу. Это дозволит вовремя начать адекватное исцеление.
Ежели в момент реакции может быть внутривенное введение препарата…. Особенное место посреди разных способов исцеления в крайнее время уделяется эфферентным способам. К ним можно отнести внутрисосудистое лазерное облучение крови BJIOK и операции экстракорпоральной гемокоррекции плазмаферез.

Bongiovanni to do the happy dance.
Sure, she was on probation, but the charges were dropped. No probation violation there At an ensuing probation violation hearing, Ms. Bongiovanni argued she had not violated her probation in the All Hallows morning incident. More importantly, for purposes of sending Ms. You see, California probation violation determinations differ from a criminal trial in that the fact-finder in a probation violation hearing is the judge -- not a jury.
In addition, where in a criminal trial, the legal standard is proof beyond a reasonable doubt, in a probation violation hearing, the standard is only a preponderance of the evidence. In Ms. Diaz identified Ms. Bongiovanni as the woman who threatened her. Bongiovanni had her probation revoked, and it was three years of incarceration for her. He fought to save the Constitution Big Fun in a Little PackageDavid Flood is a gentleman of somewhat small stature: three foot two, to be exact.
You see, for a fee, you could bring Dave the Dwarf to your birthday party, St. Dwarf tossing was a cultural phenomenon in the s. It was the biggest thing since Members Only jackets. It seemed a good time was being had by all, as tiny torpedoes of humanity went airborne at parties. That was, until the Little People of America and their friends in the Florida Legislature intercepted the toss. Little LobbyistsNot everyone was amused by this zany brand of miniature fun.
Among the concerned populace was a public interest organization known as Little People of America, Inc. The non-profit organization provides support and information to people of short stature, and states it is the only dwarfism support organization providing services to those afflicted with all of the over types of dwarfism.
Little People and others lobbied the Florida Legislature, and the result was the passage of Section Not all little people supported the law, and one of them was Dave the Dwarf. Dave the Dwarf sued then-Florida Governor Job Bush in an attempt to overturn the law, arguing the law was an unconstitutional violation of his rights under the Due Process Clause of the 5th Amendment and the Equal Protection Clause of the 14th Amendment.
Specifically, Dave the Dwarf argued in Flood v. Bush, No. Filed Nov. He argued also that the law violated his equal protection rights because the law treated him differently than others. For instance, you could be tossed, I could be tossed, and Oprah Winfrey could be tossed with a great degree of difficulty, but Dave the Dwarf could not be tossed Banned or Not?
They argued dwarfs needed protection. Dave counted that was hogwash. Also, in addition to maintaining Gov. Turns out they were right. The law itself banned only "undertaking or permitting any contest or promotion or other form of recreational activity involving exploitation endangering the health, safety, and welfare of any person with dwarfism" in establishments selling alcoholic beverages. Nowhere did the law ban dwarf tossing specifically. Dave the Dwarf argued dwarf tossing was good for his welfare because he made money doing it.
Note the language is "health, safety, and welfare," as opposed to "health, safety, or welfare. As it was, the trial court tossed Dave out of the courthouse, holding the law did not ban dwarf tossing and that -- although the law mandated that the Division of Alcoholic Beverages and Tobacco of Floridas Department of Professional Regulation promulgate regulations on the issue -- they had failed to do it.
While the regulators may have been out at the beach listening to Jimmy Buffet tunes and drinking margaritas, Dave the Dwarf could have been spending his days flying through the warm Florida breezes. So why is Florida State Rep. Ritch Workman trying to repeal the law while everyone from Jon Stewart to your short Uncle Freddy is weighing in on the issue? Well, it appears those regulators finally finished getting wasted away in Margaritaville, cruised on back home to Tallahassee, and did some regulating.
The regulation provided in subsection 2: "Any activity described as dwarf-tossing is specifically included within those acts of exploitation prohibited by this rule. It provided: "Nothing contained herein shall be construed to prohibit dwarfs from engaging in non-exploitative sporting or recreational events of the type engaged in by persons who are not dwarfs. Workman has his way. His bill, HB , is pending in the Florida Legislature. You would be wrong. This week, mighty corporate litigants have been battling it out in the U.
District Court for Northern District of Illinois in a wacky wiener war. The case of Sara Lee Corp. Kraft Foods Inc. Sara Lee, the makers of Ball Park Franks, and Kraft, the friendly folks bringing you the venerable Oscar Mayer wiener, both claim the other has disparaged its products in violation of federal and state law.
Thus, everyone thinks hot dogs are comprised of animal parts swept up off the factory floor anyway. How can one disparage a hot dog? Oh, I Wish I Were Sara Lee claimed non-beef ingredients comprised approximately 20 percent of an Oscar Meyer wiener. Of course, Sara Lee conceded that most of this non-beef 20 percent was water.
Sara Lee claimed Ball Park Franks were disadvantaged becausebeing the honest dudes they are Sara Lee would not compete with Oscars little lies by claiming falsely that Ball Park Franks were percent pure beef. In advertising paraphrasing Oscar Mayers famous jingles for its hot dogs and bologna, Kraft claimed, The best tasting beef hot dog has a name. In addition, Kraft invited customers to Try the taste that knocked the others out of the park. Just as it claimed the percent beef claim was false, Sara Lee claimed these comparisons against its hot dog were false as well.
It must have been a big taste test error because the bouquet of the sodium lactate and dextrose really pairs well with mustard. Not only were these claims placed in print and electronic media, Sara Lee claimed Kraft even put them on its Wienermobile, a vehicle described by Sara Lee as a hot dog-shaped vehicle that promotes Oscar Mayer and its products in interstate commerce.
Have you ever seen the Wienermobile? This writer has. It looks like a rolling phallic sex toy designed to appeal to the prurient interest in violation of the U. Supreme Courts holding in Miller v. Sara Lee argued that, by making these allegedly false claims in interstate commerce, Kraft violated section 43a1B of the Lanham Act.
In addition, Sara Lee argued these false claims violated the applicable Illinois state laws. Not surprisingly, Oscar Mayer saw things differently. Kraft argued the percent beef was accurate because, although Oscar Mayer contained additives, beef was the only meat in Oscar Mayer. Damn you, Upton Sinclair! In addition, Kraft argued Sara Lee had its own hot dog advertising shenanigans.
Meanwhile, the court battle continues with weighty questions, such as "Do a bunch of San Francisco chefs know anything about Chicago hot dogs? Hemmingway may want to watch out for the speeding Wienermobile. Oscar is not happy. From going to the slammer for failing to pay taxes on reality winnings to shooting sweet, innocent puppies with arrows, reality TV contestants have often been models of bad behavior. Our Case of the Week examines what happens when a reality show insinuates falsely that a woman tried to smuggle drugs into a jail via her vaginal cavity.
Little did she know she was about to become a big, big star. The Riverbend facility apparently had a drug problem, and there were allegations the contraband made its way into the prison compliments of visiting family members. It was time for some riveting reality TV drama. He noted that an informant had indicated a woman was smuggling drugs into the prison on a regular basis.
As Ms. Battles husband is shown to television viewers. Keystone Kops and the Nitty GrittyMs. Battle visited the restroom, causing Agent Fisher to use his supposedly excellent cop skills to determine a crime was in progress. Not unlike the Keystone Kops, Agent Fisher and his bumbling band of merrymen swung into action.
Now we are starting to get to the nitty gritty. Battles bladder and her efficiency in the latrine. See how fast she went in there. Apparently, Agent Fisher, unaware of a bygone era when gentlemen and ladies would not utter the verb, "pee," on national television, has a special mathematical formula for computing travel times for urine through the urethra and into the toilet, hand washing, mirror check, and egress from a restroom. I think we got them. First, they conducted a strip-search, and then, they placed Ms.
They kept Ms. He neither urinated nor defecated any contraband. After releasing Ms. Reality TV in CourtMs. Battle committed a crime, but instead "accurately reports the results of an investigation. District Judge Kevin Sharp wrote:"Even though the Program indicates that a search of Plaintiff revealed no drugs, a jury could conclude from the overall way that the Program is presented that Plaintiff was a drug smuggler who just happened not to get caught on September 12, Supreme Court case of Milkovich v.
Lorain Journal Co. After all, they could just put a bunch of people on a desert island, have a some obnoxious people become roommates, or have really untalented people sing. E-Mail: dhorrigan courtweek. It would be most annoying, but would it be unlawful?
Would the pungent aromas be trespassing onto your property? Organic AirOluf and Debra Johnson had decided to get back to nature. They converted their Minnesota conventional family farm into an organic farm, hoping to achieve an organic food certification that would allow them to charge more for their farm fresh products. Soon the Johnsons were ready to enjoy their new organic Eden. As they began their new all-natural existence, they stopped using pesticides, and Mr.
There was just one problem. Pesticides and herbicides drifted onto the Johnsons farm. Seeing the neighboring farm much like a chinchilla sanctuary might view a petrochemical plant as a neighbor, the Johnsons filed complaints in , , , , and Having had enough of chemicals wafting onto their pristine, virginal, chemical-free land, the Johnsons sued in Minnesota state court in January , alleging, among other things, that Farmers Union committed trespass by allowing its chemical fumes to invade their property.
A state trial court was unconvinced. It granted summary judgment to Farmers Union, on all claims, including the trespass claim, holding that trespass by particulate matter was not recognized in Minnesota. Leading the charge for Birkenstock-wearing lovers of fields and streams everywhere, the Johnsons appealed.
Forst Farms, Inc. The Wendingers and the Forsts had been neighbors for years. They had also farmed their lands for years, and the Wendingers built a new home on their land in In , the Forsts entered into an agreement with Wakefield Pork, Inc. In a design sure to make anyone nauseous, liquid pig waste was stored in an outdoor concrete lagoon.
The pig poo was then pumped and spread on the fields each fall. As the scents from farmyard feces filled the ambient air, the Wendingers began to complain. Then, they filed scores of complaints with state and local authorities.
Finally, they sued. Among their allegations was a claim for trespass, arguing the pig fumes entering their property constituted trespass. A trial court dismissed the trespass claim, and the Wendingers appealed. The trial court in Johnson used the Wendinger decision for the proposition that particulate matter traveling from one property to another could not constitute trespass.
However, the appellate court in Johnson held the trial court read too much into the pig fume decision. Pesticides are not Pig FumesAlthough the appellate court in Wendinger used the phrase, "particulate matter," the appellate court in Johnson held all particulate matter is not alike. Basically, the court held pesticides are not pig fumes. Where the Wendinger court said there was no trespass because the pig fumes only affected enjoyment of the land, not possession of it, in ruling for the Johnsons, the appellate court in Johnson held that pesticides can affect both possession and enjoyment.
But, if you spray Raid, and it ends up in your neighbors Cheerios, he may just lawyer-up. After all, she sells millions of records, and many middle-aged women adore her. However, there are millions more who would rather spend a weekend in an Iranian torture chamber than listen to Ms. Dion sing the theme from Titanic for the 4,st time. The woman may need some protection. Well, in a development that may damage U.
Secret Service agent. Such a high level of demonstrated skill and accomplishment might have brought him a visa. But what if, instead of being employed by the U. Department of the Treasury to be part of elite squad of livesavers, Mr. Costner had been employed to protect the top-selling female Canadian recording artist of all time by the pride of Charlemagne, Quebec herself?
Nikolaos Skokos thought they should. Apparently, DHS didnt think protecting the vocal cords that brought Beauty and the Beast to warm the hearts of little children was important enough. To see what an affront this might be to Ms. Legal TitanicIn addition to establishing a lottery for certain visas and dropping homosexuality as a basis for exclusion from the United States, the Immigration Act of created the EB-1 visa to attract immigrants with exceptional talents and skills.
The EB-1 visa has three types, one for multinational executives and managers, one for professors and researchers, and one for applicants of extraordinary ability. Two of the ways an applicant can demonstrate this extraordinary ability are showing he had made original contributions of major significance to his field of endeavor under 8 C.
In the legal equivalent of running the Titanic into an icebergwhile listening to Celine Dion sing about it as Leo and Kate flail in the frigid waters of the North Atlantic, Mr. Skokos appealed to the U. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit in Skokos v. Department of Homeland Security, and fared no better. The appellate court held Mr.
Skokos failed to establish that his work for Ms. Dion constituted an original contribution of major significance to the field of bodyguarding. In addition, the court held he failed to establish that he was paid more than most celebrity bodyguards. The court noted Mr. Skokos claimed he was far more than a bodyguard--he supervised guards, made security arrangements in the exotic destinations where Ms. Dion shot her mesmerizingly dramatic videos, and provided around-the-clock protection for Ms.
Dion and her family. Nevertheless, the court was unmoved that protecting the valuable Canadian export was sufficiently significant to get a visa. The court noted the high standard for granting an EB-1 visa, citing the case of Kazarian v.
USCIS, where a physicist who had published articles, written a textbook, and lectured extensively didnt even qualify for an EB-1 visa because his work--although satisfying the criterion for authorship of scholarly articles--did not establish that his work was of major significance in the field of physics. Of course, some people have managed to prove they are important and accomplished enough to get an EB-1 visa. Golfer Nick Price got one, but--unlike Mr.
Skokos--he had won multiple championships, earned over a million dollars in prize money, and he had Jack Nicklaus, Lee Trevino, and Hale Irwin execute affidavits supporting his position. If only Mr. Skokos had managed to get a raise from Celine Dion and recommendations from Gladys Knight and the Pips. He berates participants, calls them names, and generally makes people wonder if his momma taught him any manners. Effeminate Idol? In what some take as evidence of the decline of Western civilization, American Idol, the American spin-off of the British program, Pop Idol, has become one of the most successful shows on television.
Contestants participate in singing competitions to win recording contracts, and the winners, including singers Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood, have gone on to fame and fortune. One of those contestants was Ian Bernardo. Bernardo first appeared on American Idol in on the opening show of the season. These season-opening audition shows feature a few acts that will advance in the competition and a few acts that will come close. They also feature performers with no reasonable chance of advancement.
These contestants--possessing little or no talent--apparently appear to provide comedic material by making fools of themselves. Apparently, Ian Bernardo was one of these comedic contestants for the season. Not surprisingly, Mr. Bernardo was unsuccessful in his American Idol audition. However, Mr. Bernardo--who described himself as "having a non-conforming appearance based on gender stereotype," which a U.
On each of his appearances, Mr. Bernardo claimed also that he was subject to discrimination and harassment due to his sex on each of his appearances. He claimed American Idol Productions employees told him to "gay it up" and that producers conditioned his appearance on Mr.
Bernardo filed a complaint with the U. American Idol Productions moved to dismiss the case, making several arguments. In addition to claiming Mr. Bernardo suffered no adverse employment action, the producers argued Mr. Bernardo had failed to make a case for hostile work environment under Title VII.
Although the court conceded that--if true--the conduct at the Simon Cowell farewell show would constitute a hostile work environment, the court rejected Mr. Bernardo had not established that gender stereotyping, which is prohibited by Title VII, had so permeated the workplace so as to create a hostile work environment.
The court went on to dismiss all Mr. Benardo went on the air after being told what was expected of him, and he knew what to expect. Having volunteered to be insulted, he cannot now claim that he was sexually harassed. Its also one of the most contentious. Some cases may seem easy, but what if youre injured after being chased down a supermarket aisle by a charging dog owned by a store employee?
Should the store be liable? Two Mississippi courts disagreed recently. Of course, it helps if you know something about the dog. An otherwise pleasant shopping day took an unfortunate turn when Ms. Outlaw heard a sound that gripped her with fear and panic. She heard a dog bark. Outlaw, who said she was extremely afraid of dogs, decided it was time for drastic evasive maneuvers.
She ran down the aisle, made a turn, and sought refuge from her brutal foe. Not finding a safe place in the aisle, she ran into a freezer. Thinking that wasnt safe enough--after all, she probably saw the movie, Cujo--Ms. Outlaw leaped on top of the freezer. In her Quixotic quest to escape Armageddon, Ms. Outlaw exacerbated a previously existing hip injury, and decided to sue Penny Pinchers and Cindy Scott, the store manager who owned the attack dog.
A Mississippi state court jury found for Ms. Outlaw and awarded her ,, finding Penny Pinchers 70 percent at fault and Ms. Scott 30 percent to blame. Remember at the beginning we told you it would help if you knew a little about the dog? Baby Weiner DogIt turns out this allegedly ferocious attack dog was nothing more than a four-month-old Dachshund puppy.
A little weiner dog weighing four pounds. It seems Ms. Scott brought the adorable puppy named Sophie to work every day. The pleasant little puppy had never attacked anyone before. Scott kept Sophie behind the counter--not to protect customers, but so that no one would step on the little thing. Rather than a pound Rottweiler with a spiked collar, Ms. Outlaw jumped on top of a freezer in mortal fear of a tiny weiner dog puppy.
Given this fact pattern, Penny Pincher and Ms. Scott decided an appeal was in order. Outlaw: Did the presence of the four-month-old Dachshund puppy create an unreasonably dangerous condition at Penny Pinchers that day? The court noted that the Mississippi Supreme Court had held that dogs are not dangerous per se. Grayson that to impose liability on a dog owner for personal injuries, a plaintiff must show the dog had a propensity for violence and that the owner knew it.
The court in Penny Pinchers noted that the four-month-old, four-pound bundle of love, Sophie the Weiner Dog, had a clean record. Darnell, the court went on to hold that a premises does not have to be completely safe from any hazardonly reasonable safeand that the plaintiffs own actions can be a factor. The law of defamation can be complex, but a New York state court recently tried to sort out this weighty issue: What is a "dirtbag," and is the term defamatory? The issue arose after a man named William Schumacher penned comments that another man, John Acheson, was "the biggest dirtbag" he had ever met in his life.
Acheson sued Schumacher before Westchester City Court in what, amusingly, could become a seminal case of black letter law. Apparently, no other U. Court has ever issued a reported decision on the issue of whether it is defamatory to call someone a "dirtbag. Schumacher said libel or defamation was "a writing or broadcast that tends to expose the plaintiff to public hatred, contempt, ridicule, or disgrace.
Without offering any citation, the court defined "dirtbag" as "an informal term" meaning "a dirty, grimy, sleazy, or disreputable person. Did Schumacher mean that Acheson was the physically largest of the dirtbags he had known? Or perhaps just one of the most powerful? The court surmised also that Schumacher may have believed Acheson to be "just a tad worse" than the other dirtbags he had known. The point the court was making was that -- in any case -- these statements would all be opinions.
Citing the case of Gilliam v. Richard M. Greenspan, P. In Gilliam, one lawyer penned a nastygram, saying unflattering things about another lawyer. The court held it was opinion and threw out the case. In Lund v. Chicago and Northwest Transp.
In National Recruiters Inc. Cashman, the Minnesota Supreme Court found it slander when a plaintiff was called "a no-good loser; a no-good son of a bitch" in the context of an employment reference. Other courts are more hostile toward such lawsuits. They lost on the grounds that a reasonable person would not have taken the photo and caption to mean Evel was literally a pimp and Krystal his prostitute, despite their year age difference and his rose-tinted glasses in the photo.
There was once a professor who reminded his students that the bubonic plague was all natural. Various merchants--from sellers of cereal to purveyors of popcorn--claim their products are "all natural. Activist ice creamIn the s, childhood friends Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield took a correspondence course in ice cream making.
Then they scraped up 12,, opened an ice cream shop in an old Vermont gas station, and delivered dairy products in a station wagon. Was born, and, as they say, the rest is history. In , Ben and Jerry sold the company to Unilever. Although they are now very rich dudes, Messrs.
Cohen and Greenfield and their ice cream operation still conjure up images of granola, Birkenstocks, peace signs, and Dutch chocolateAlthough Amsterdam may be more famous for Rembrandt, the Rijksmuseum, and reefers, some people believe the Netherlands is also famous for Dutch chocolate.
But, does anyone really know what Dutch chocolate is? Chocolate is produced when seeds from cocoa beans are fermented and dried and mixed with fat and powdered sugar. Cocoa powder can be made in two forms: unalkalized cocoa or Dutch-process alkalized cocoa. The unalkalized cocoa is made by merely pressing the beans. The process produces a light brown, very acidic powder.
Dutch-process cocoa, on the other hand, is produced by cocoa nibs with a mild alkali solution to raise the pH and thus, lower the acidity. This process improves taste, color and solubility, but it also destroys many of the flavonols, which are believed to have health benefits. All Natural? Breyers did not. They alleged violation of both federal and California law in the labeling of the ice cream as all natural even though its cocoa contained potassium carbonate from the alkanization process.
The ice cream makers argued that "all natural" was a term of art under FDA and U. Astiana was merely an ice cream lover and not a federal regulatory expert. The only FDA guidance appears to be a distinction between natural and synthetic in the policy, but that definition in the Federal Register is qualified as meaning something that would not normally be expected to be in food.
Surely, that characterization raises multiple linguistic and philosophical questions, not to mention factual questions," U. District Judge Phyllis Hamilton wrote for the court. What have we learned this week? Well, according to the U. It seems to be a simple question.
Get a bunch of lawyers and judges involved, and it becomes anything but. What about when that motor vehicle is attacked by a swarm of bees? It seems he was having a bit of a problem with a beehive. Corpus asked Officer Mata to accompany him to the hive with the swarming army of displeased bees. Officer Mata insisted Mr. Corpus accompany him to the hive. Officer Mata donned protective gear and approached the hive of danger, but he instructed Mr.
Corpus to remain safely in the animal control vessel as the engine remained running. Things would have been just fine and dandy had Officer Mata not done something that may have been somewhat unwise. Insects Attack! Not unlike a Saturday Morning Super Hero decked out in protective gear as he makes Saturday mornings safe for kiddie sales of sugary cereal and overpriced toys, Officer Mata approached the hive in his protective animal control gear.
Then, the swashbuckling hero of animal protection began spraying the bees. Guess what happened next? Shockingly, the bees attacked. But, no worries. Officer Mata was protected by his animal control gear. The problem was what Officer Mata did next.
To escape the mighty swarm, Officer Mata ran to the truck, opened the door, and hopped in. The only problem, of course, was that, when he opened the door to the animal control truck, he let in a bunch of very angry bees--who proceeded to have a field day biting the [expletive deleted] out of the unprotected corpus of Mr. Corpus was not amused. What do unamused people do in this column?
They sue. The Law of Bees and CarsMr. Operating a motor vehicle? What about spraying the bee hive and opening the truck door so the bees could turn Mr. Corpus into a walking, talking pin cushion. Actually, Mr. Corpus had a smart lawyer. Governments waive sovereign immunity for certain activities. Basically, you can sue the government only if the government says you can sue the government. One of the exceptions to sovereign immunity in Texas is for operation of motor vehicles. If Mr.
So just what does it take to be operating a motor vehicle? If you asked a bunch of convicted drunk drivers, they would probably tell you Officer Mata was operating the animal control truck. Bud or Bees? For instance, in People v. Oh yeah, he also had a cooler full of marijuana on the front seat. Wood at first. Both a trial court and an intermediate state appellate court threw out the evidence against him, holding he was not operating his van at the time of the arrest and search.
However, the Michigan Supreme Court reversed both courts and held Mr. In doing so, the court reversed two previous Michigan cases that held one could not be sleeping and operating a motor vehicle at the same time. Actual physical control of the vehicle is the standard used by many jurisdictions, and in Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, and Nevada, that control can be maintained while sleeping.
Putting the key in the ignition will get you in some states, including Vermont. In the Vermont Supreme Court case, State v. Helton, one hapless, inebriated fellow was convicted of DUI for merely putting his keys in the ignition to roll up his car windows--after he had gone to retrieve his vodka from the car.
Note to self: appoint a designated sober window operator. So what about Officer Mata, was he in control of the vehicle and thus operating it for purposes of Mr. Corpus bee attack case? Departing from the case law of other states, both the trial court and the Texas Thirteenth Court of Appeals said "no.
Corpus was injured when the bees entered the cab of the truck where he happened to be sitting. Either way, its not a Happy Meal. As a public service to help our readers remain free from bondage, we will, from time to time, present our Case of the Week: Fourth Amendment Follies edition. Druggies from CharlotteRobert Little was traveling through the pleasant North Carolina hamlet of Thomasville early one August morning in It might not have been any big deal, but it was in the morning, and Mr.
Little was driving an old Buick with a malfunctioning headlight. Bonus reader helpful hint! Bad things will happen. At least wait until when the first batch of doughnuts comes off the conveyor belt at the local Krispy Kreme. Because Mr. Officer Kallfelz observed three things that made him decide it was time for back-up. First was Mr. Second, Mr. Little said he was traveling from Charlotte. Finally, Mr. Little had approximately 10 tree air fresheners hanging from the rear-view mirror.
Before we get to those pesky air fresheners, please allow us to defend the good people of Charlotte, North Carolina. But, back to those tree air fresheners. Rambo RaidA nervous dude driving from Charlotte with 10 air fresheners made Officer Kallfelz realize he needed a crime deterrent. It was time for Rambo. Not unlike Sylvester Stallone searching swamps for sadistic Viet Kong alumni, Rambo, a drug dog, went over that old Buick like a frat boy going through sofa cushions looking for that lost last joint.
Little was arrested for being a felon in possession of a firearm. Little moved to suppress the evidence, arguing the search was illegal, but a trial court denied the motion, holding that the stop and the search were lawful. Little appealed. Little argued in State v. Little that the search was improper because the cornucopia of air fresheners did not provide reasonable suspicion for extending the stop until Rambo arrived.
Unfortunately for Mr. Little, North Carolina has a proud tradition of air freshener jurisprudence. In State v. Hernandez, the North Carolina Court of Appeals held a stop was proper when it was based, at least in part, on Christmas tree air fresheners. Not unlike with Mr. I noticed a strong odor coming from the vehicle," Trooper Whitley testified in defending his actions. Christmas tree air fresheners as a basis for detaining a motorists? Well, the court upheld the stop, and the court in Little followed the court in Hernandez.
And, if you think North Carolina is the only state fighting the war on air freshener, you would be wrong. In Commonwealth v. Watts, the Massachusetts Appeals Court held reasonable suspicion could be based, in part, on the presence of fabric softener drier sheets.
The federal courts have joined this attack on pleasant aromas as well. In United States v. West, the Tenth Circuit proclaimed, "The Tenth Circuit has consistently held that the scent of air freshener is properly considered as a factor in the probable cause analysis, and in the Eleventh Circuit held in United States v.
Wright that evidence of a drug conspiracy existed based partially on the fact that two persons entered the Winn-Dixie together to purchase carpet freshener and fabric softener; materials known to be used to mask the odor of cocaine.
Many other federal circuits, including the Third, Fifth, Seventh, Eighth, and Ninth, have upheld convictions based, in part, on the presence of fabric softener, and in United States v. She brought along a box of Bounce fabric softener sheets. If you have contraband and notice Rambo sniffing your car, ditch the fabric softener Bounce can get you busted. But what if your employer hoisted a sign informing customers there would be a two-dollar charge for your services? Would that payment be your tip?
Would posting that sign get somebody sued? Of course, it would. This is the Case of the Week. Air a la carteOur story begins in Sept. Before this policy began, curbside check-in was free, but customers tipped the skycaps--usually a dollar per bag--for curbside service. Until American went and messed up things, most skycaps earned most of their earnings from tips. As the airline industry faced significant financial problems, airlines began charging for many services that had been free.
This a la carte fee system affected everything from headphones to handbags. Want to watch the in-flight movie? No problem. Want to hear it? Two dollars for headphones, please. Want to eat? Pay up. At the moment, we can add curbside check-in to our non-complimentary airline a la carte menu.
American--and its subcontractor actually employing the skycaps--made out like Tijuana bandits. The charge was designed to defray the cost of curbside service in a dark and dreary economy, but it actually became a profitable business venture for all Others felt 2. The end result was the same: the skycaps lost a significant amount of their income as tips plummeted.
Laws, ch. The skycaps argued Massachusetts law prohibited American from charging the curbside baggage fee because the fee qualified as a service charge under the commonwealth law because it was a fee that a consumer would reasonably expect to be given to the skycap. American countered that the skycaps suit was preempted by the federal Airline Deregulation Act of When a federal law preempts a state law on an issue, the federal statute has sole jurisdiction, and the state statute is preempted and nullified for purposes of that dispute.
The District Court held for American on several grounds, but held for the skycaps on the preemption argument. Thus, the claims under the Massachusetts tips law and for tortious interference were tried to a jury. Big TippersIt turned out the jury was a bunch of big tippers. The jury found for the skycaps in April and awarded damages in the amount of 2. Thus, the jury awarded the nine prevailing plaintiff skycaps approximately , in damages plus interest and attorney fees.
One plaintiff skycap from the St. Louis airport did not get to share in the bounty because--as a citizen of Missouri--he was not covered by the Massachusetts tip law. But, our story is not over. Cheap tippers can rejoice. American appealed, and the First U.
Circuit Court of Appeals handed down a decision bound to make Parisian tourists do a happy dance. American Airlines, Inc. Although the appellate court conceded there was conflicting case law, it relied on three U. Supreme Court cases, Morales v. Trans World Airlines, Inc. Wolens, and Rowe v. New Hampshire Motor Transport Assn, in holding that the federal law preempted the Massachusetts tip statute vis--vis the skycaps tips.
When the Supreme Court invoked the rubric "tenuous, remote, or peripheral", it used as examples limitations on gambling, prostitution, or smoking in public places--state regulation comparatively remote to the transportation function," the court said.
Even if you pay an airline curbside baggage fee, please, folks, tip your skycap. It keeps colonial constables out of our tea, J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI out of our mothers underwear drawers, and seizure-hungry sheriffs out of our Chevys. Yet, as with anything, the Fourth Amendment is not absolute.
The Fourth Amendment prohibits only unreasonable searches. In fact, the Fourth Amendment has a specific clause allowing searches with probable cause. A recent Massachusetts case gets to be our Case of the Week because it addresses the novel legal question: Does the presence of a bong and Baggies constitute probable cause for a search for marijuana?
Speeding and SeizingWhen Shawn Smith decided to do some urban drag racing with friends, he probably should have left his bong at home. For readers who may be unfamiliar with the household appliance known as the bong, it is a water pipe--used by some to smoke marijuana. The speeding Mr. Smith was attempting to outduel a fellow motorist when police clocked him traveling 67 miles per hour in a 40 mile per hour zone.
When police stopped the Smithmoblie, they noticed a bong and an open box of plastic sandwich bags in the car. The police testified that, based on their experience, a bong and Baggies usually meant one thing Yes, police thought they were dealing with that plague on humanity: marijuana. Having spotting the offending bong and Baggies, law enforcement swung into action. Police ordered Mr. Smith from the car, and frisked him. They asked him if there were any marijuana in the car, and he said there was not.
Smith admitted he had some herbal enjoyment in his pocket. Police seized it, arrested Mr. Smith, and impounded his speedy car. Shockingly, they found more marijuana. However, in a development that will be significant legally later in our story, police did not detect any marijuana smoke or residue in the bong.
Evidence Up in Smoke? Sure, police get to do an inventory when they seize a car. Smith for his weed, so they got to go through his car and inventory everything. However, when police misbehave, there is a judicial remedy known as suppression of the evidence. For those who never have time to watch Law and Order, that means the evidence is thrown out because the cops got it illegally. In this case, because the police failed to give Mr. Smith his Miranda warnings before giving him the Spanish Inquisition, Mr.
Smith moved to suppress evidence of the search. However, Massachusetts prosecutors argued the bong and Baggies sitting in the car in plain sight gave the police all the probable cause they needed to search the carMiranda or not. In essence, the Commonwealth argued, it was the probable cause supplied by the bong and Baggiesnot the Mirandaless utterances of Mr. Smith that gave police the pot. Citing Massachusetts case law, the court held that bongs and Baggies--and nothing more--do not give the police probably case for a search.
Dolby from , and Commonwealth v. Correia in It is true the facts in all three cases were somewhat similar: cops stop car, cops see bong, cops arrest driver. However, Smith differed from Dolby and Correia in one, key respect. Unlike in Dolby and Correia, in Smith, there was neither marijuana smoke nor residue present in the bong. The Appeals Court said that distinction was critical.
In Dolby and Correia, the evidence was not suppressed, but it was because there was residue in the bong--not because police spotted an innocent bong just hanging out, minding its own business, with no nefarious residue or smoke. Baggies get the same constitutional protections. Citing its decision in Commonwealth v. Garcia, the court held, the observation of two lawful items--the bong and the box of sandwich bags--did not supply probably cause.
Benign objects such as spoons, mirrors, and straws are often used in the narcotic trade. To allow police officers, experienced in narcotics investigations, to conduct a warrantless search whenever they observe one of the above items, and nothing more, would permit random searches, which are condemned by the Fourth Amendment and the Declaration of Rights," the court said.
So, Mr. Smith got off: the evidence was suppressed, and the charges were dropped. Manmade ChassisDenise Dalien decided she wanted to augment the chassis God gave her, so she consulted plastic surgeon Stanley Jackson of Puyallup, Wash. Jackson performed breast augmentation on Ms. Dalien in , using saline implants. After a diet and exercise regimen caused her to lose weight, Ms. Dalien noticed some indentation and rippling on what was once her soft and supple upper left bosom. Jackson went in again, removed the saline implants, and replaced them with gel implants.
Turns out there was a problem. Dalien was not happy with her new gel bosoms, so under the surgical theory of more is more, Dr. Jackson performed additional revision procedures on Ms. Dalien during and Blinding BungeeJust before all this happened, and--importantly for our story--unbeknownst to Ms.
Dalien, Dr. Jackson was having issues with a bungee cord. Jackson went into mortal combat with the killer cord in July The bungee cord won. Jackson received surgery on his eye, and took over a month off from his practice. In July , Dr. Jackson reported additional changes in his vision. He retired in October after unsuccessful surgery.
Citing her allegedly unsuccessful surgeries, Ms. Dalien sued the good doctor twice. In one suit, Ms. Dalien argued negligent medical malpractice in the botched boob job. In her second civil action, Ms. Dalien argued, among other things, that Dr. Jackson violated the law by failing to disclose his eye injury. Cow Bone LawDr. Jackson argued that the nondisclosure of his eye condition did not occur in trade or commerce and that any alleged professional malpractice or negligence was exempt from the CPA.
Dalien countered that the nondisclosure of the eye condition was, in fact, done in trade or commerce because Dr. Jackson solicited and retained patients by failing to disclose this condition. In siding with Dr. Dental, Inc. Michel needed a bone graft.
