domestic violence victim stands up to attacker in landmark Dallas civil trial victory

by Michael F. Pezzulli

Recently I represented and tried a case on behalf of a young woman who had been the victim of a horrific attack by her ex-boyfriend. The facts of the case revealed that over the course of an attack that lasted hours, the ex-boyfriend violently raped her, inflicting knife wounds requiring nearly 500 stitches. The attack was so brutal that the blows to her face left many of the bones in her face broken. When the paramedics arrived, they believed she was dead. 

The problem is not isolated. It is so pervasive that the CDC, (Centers for Disease Control), actually has a division of Violence Prevention, and has studied the problem extensively. The CDC monitors the problem closely and recently updated its findings in its National Intimate Partner and Sexual violence Survey. 

patent lawsuit Gillette v. Dollar Shave Club by Michael Pezzulli

You don’t have to wait on the razor wars to end to have a sharp blade.

I’m sure most of you have seen the great ongoing patent litigation war between Gillette – of the consumer products giant Procter & Gamble – and the Dollar Shave Club. Gillette claims that the way Dollar Shave Club coats their blades with particular materials to keep them sharp violates a 2004 patent held by Gillette.

In the United States, one of the great defining aspects of this country is the constitutional right to a jury trial. Nearly all-civil jury trials and ninety percent of criminal jury trials on the planet take place in the United States.2

The most stunning and successful experiment in direct popular sovereignty in all history is the American jury. Properly constrained by its duty to follow the law, the requirement of jury unanimity, and evidentiary rules, the American jury has served the republic well for over two hundred years. It is the New England town meeting writ large. It is as American as rock ‘n’ roll.
