Employment Law Conference

I have another contact for you for the conference, which is officially the 3rd Annual Law School for Business People. The email is The conference 2 October at the SLCC Miller Campus, 9750 S. 300 W. Register by 1 October and get a price break. Register by 25 September, and they'll throw in a white paper titled "Challenged of a Family-Owned Business."

A "Victory" for avoided having its lawsuit dismissed this week. Contrary to what Overstock's attorney says, though, this can hardly be considered much of a victory. It means Overstock's people get to keep pursuing this lawsuit instead of pursuing business. Even if Overstock manages to prove that Gradient Analytics and Rocker Partners did something wrong, it doesn't change the fact that Overstock's business model and fundamentals are questionable at best (which also makes one wonder what kind of damages Overstock will be able to prove against Gradient and Rocker since there is a whole barrel of reasons Overstock's stock price has dropped like a shot quail). CEO Patrick Byrne and his minions should be focusing on business problems, but he would rather spend his time tilting at this windmill. We already have a local example of what happens when management would rather focus on lawsuits than business: SCO lives in bankruptcy court.
