Aug 12, 2012 Random thoughts through August 12, 2012
On Sundays, I sometimes veer well beyond the law in my blog entries. On my Twitterpage, https://twitter.com/jonkatz5, and elsewhere, I sometimes jot out news items, legal ideas, and personal ideas of interest. Every week or so I am assembling some of those recent random thoughts.
THE LAW WORLD

Virginia’s new rules of evidence.
Information on re-registration of a trademark.
Legal Times references a lengthy Westat study apparently showing lower reoffending with Superior Court diversion.
The U.S. atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki killed 210,000 people.
British bank official: “You f—ing Americans. Who are you to tell … that we’re not going to deal with Iranians.”
Unacceptable that Syrian rebels threaten to kill their Iranian captives if attacked again by Syrian gov’t forces.
Israel misguidedly denies West Bank access to envoys of countries not recognizing Israel.

BEYOND THE LAW
