I had a case in the NYLJ the other day. I think it was June 13. Myrtle Ave. Chiropractic Pc v. Allstate Ins. Co., 056130/04. Up until now, I've only had articles there, so, it's pretty cool. Sure, it's nothing fancy like all you biglaw types deal with, but it's better than a kick to the balls.
Nothing particulary interesting has happened since my last post, at least as far as the CPLR goes. I noticed that the New York Courts Reporter site now has RSS feeds. But when I tried to subscribe, it got all screwed up. Until they straighten it out, its easier to just use the site.
I got a new phone; the HTC incredible. I'm torn between it and the iphone, but I'm edging towards the HTC. They keyboard is kind of crappy and it doesn't handle emails as well as the iphone or blackberry. The Maps/ Directions app is great. If you spend a lot of time emailing, go with a blackberry. For everything else, go with an iphone or the HTC. Personally, like I said, I edge towards the HTC.
Here is a gratuitious picture of my dog, Marvin. In the picture he is looking up at my youngest daughter, hoping that she will give him some of the slurpee that she stole from my wife's friend.

If the whole, sunshine up your ass thing, thing isn't for you, head over to Failblog, but make sure to click the link to Very Demotivational. Not quite along the same lines is Crime & Federalism, where, after reading for a while, you will realize that you are a fat stupid hypocrite.
Should you want to help me, while you help yourself, get yourself a Dropbox account. For each of you who opens an account (completely free, unless you want to pay for more storage) I get some extra space. It's a really cool thing to have. You can store a bunch of crap on the interwebs and access it from anywhere. It comes in handy, trust me.
While I wrote this, I ate an entire box of maple cookies. I felt that you need to know that. Butterfly effect and all.
Hopefully some new and interesting decisions will come out this week. Otherwise, you will just get more of this.
Finally, if you are reading this, and you just graduated law school, you are screwed. Not because you are reading this, though, it probably doesn't help.
