Among the topics surveyed in the compendium: Is UM/UIM coverage mandatory or discretionary? Must UM/UIM coverage match liability limits? Under what circumstances is UM/UIM coverage available? What conditions precedent must the insured satisfy? What coverage defenses can the insurer assert? Is arbitration of UM/UIM claims allowed, or specifically prohibited? Can offsets against the UM, UIM, UMPD, UEO or other uninsured coverage limits be taken? Are there particular UM/UM issues unique and/or specific to your state?

Federal Consumer Credit Protection Statutes
A Compendium for the Financial Services Litigator and In-House Counsel - eBook

Beginning around 2008, the United States witnessed the rejuvenation of consumer credit litigation in response to rising foreclosure actions, with the targets being large banks and financial institutions. The crux of the litigation—that is, the defenses and affirmative counterclaims that are being asserted by consumers—include violations under RESPA, TILA, ECOA, FDCPA, and privacy laws. Given the increase in regulatory enforcement actions, the creation of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, and the enhanced scrutiny on the financial services industry, these federal regulations now have more force, effect, and potential exposure than before. DRI’s Federal Consumer Credit Protection Statutes compendium is an accumulation and analysis of the federal statutes that may be raised in consumer credit litigation and is intended to be a comprehensive source of information for in-house and outside counsel who practice in the financial services area.

Picture of the productTrade Secrets and Non-Competes: A Compendium of State Law
DRI is pleased to announce an update to its compendium of state law in the dynamic areas of trade secrets and non-competition covenants. A project of the DRI Commercial Litigation Committee, this publication describes each state's law and procedure in these increasingly important subject areas. The chapter authors are lawyers who regularly practice in the two closely related areas. They advise employers in their states as they draft non-competes and seek protection for the secrets the employers have developed over the years. This publication is written for lawyers who work closely with employers to protect their clients' interests. This second edition addresses changes to the laws surrounding trade secrets and restrictive covenants that have occurred since the first edition was published in 2008. Since that time, a number of states have seen significant changes to their laws. Georgia, for example, enacted a constitutional amendment and statute addressing restrictive covenants; New Jersey adopted the Uniform Trade Secrets Act; and a number of states saw the issuance of significant case decisions that impacted their laws. This book is intended to provide an introductory discussion and reference tool for practitioners. It should be the place where lawyers go to begin their research.

Picture of the productTrade Secrets and Agreements Not To Compete: HC
A State-by-State Compendium

DRI is pleased to announce the publication of its compendium of state law in the dynamic areas of trade secrets and non-competition covenants. A project of the DRI Commercial Litigation Committee, this publication describes each state's law and procedure in these increasingly important subject areas.

The chapter authors are lawyers who regularly practice in the two closely related areas. They advise employers in their states as they draft non-competes and seek protection for the secrets the employers have developed over the years. This publication is written for lawyers who work closely with employers to protect their clients' interests.

The content of the book is based on the conflict between two fundamental business interests: the entrepreneurial right to engage in whatever business an American wishes to pursue free of unreasonable restraints, and the right of an employer to protect the business know-how it has shared with its employees.

In the 51 trade secrets chapters, the book examines the Uniform Trade Secrets Act and the extent of its adoption by most states. This includes the basic definitions of "trade secret" and "misappropriation," and the types of information that courts will or will not protect and allow an employer to hold confidential.

In the 51 non-compete chapters, the book focuses on the enforceability of prior agreements between an employer and an employee who then leaves the employer. Can the employer require that the former employee not engage in activities related to his or her previous work? What sorts of restraints on the former employee's new business can a court find "reasonable"?

Picture of the productDefending Intellectual Property Claims, Vol. 2: Hard Copy
The Commercial Litigation Committee and its Intellectual Property Special Litigation Group present this second volume of articles devoted to defending intellectual property claims. This effort reflects the Committee's dedication to providing the DRI community with timely information about developments in this rapidly changing area of practice. The United States Supreme Court has taken a keen interest in IP and, in just the last few months, has altered the patent law landscape considerably. In these pages, experienced practitioners comment on the Court's recent decisions in KSR (that will make it easier for defendants to challenge patent claims as obvious); in Medimmune (that gives standing to patent licensees to bring suit to challenge a patent without first breaching the licensing agreement); and in Microsoft (that restricts the extraterritorial reach of United States patent law). Also included in this volume are articles that address important, cutting-edge issues such as liability for copyright and trademark infringement for anonymous web postings and how to avoid it under the Digital Millenium Copyright Act; securing copyrights in works for hire; defending claims of theft of trade secrets; and raising the time bar defenses of laches and statutes of limitations in IP cases.
