Business' suit claims breach of contract, stolen trade secrets

For Las Vegas companies, the protection of confidential information such as client lists and methods of doing business is often vital to success. Many businesses recognize this, and proactively require their workers to sign contracts that include non-complete clauses and restrictions on disclosing trade secrets. If employees who sign these agreements begin working for a direct competitor or leak confidential data, their former employers may choose to settle the business disputes through contract and trade secret litigation.

World-class illusionist performances are one of the biggest draws to Las Vegas hotels and casinos. Inherent in the value of these shows is the mystery behind the any given trick, which makes it imperative for magicians to maintain their performance methods as intellectual property. To protect against the theft of trade secrets, many illusionists require their employees to sign confidentiality agreements, which are vigorously litigated if it is suspected that these workers have leaked information about the performer’s tricks.

Las Vegas is a popular tourist destination, and the schools and organizations that plan activities in the city often opt for group transportation to cut expenses and promote bonding.

Victim of Las Vegas crash claims she struggled in aftermath

When Las Vegas car accidents make the news, focus is usually placed on people’s immediate injuries.

To recover from such losses, many victims seek compensation by pursuing civil litigation against negligent drivers.

Performing on stage can be a dangerous undertaking, even in well-known establishments such as those found along the Las Vegas Strip. The hotels and casinos that line this street are world-renowned for their music, magic and theatrical shows, but that does not mean that they are immune to lawsuits regarding premises liability and other personal injury claims. If entertainers are injured while on stage at one of these venues, the property owners and other negligent parties may face civil litigation.

When Las Vegas residents are injured as the result of negligence, premises liability or a product defect, they may think they have the right and ability to pursue legal action. While this may be true, some situations are more complicated than others. Personal injury lawsuits are intended to help make victims whole again after they have suffered an injury caused by someone else, but in most cases this requires identifying the most directly negligent party. Who this person or company is may not always be immediately apparent.

Many security-sensitive companies wary of trendy cloud tools

When a national company accidentally leaks public information, it can cause a great deal of concern for Las Vegas residents.

If these businesses do not take these decisions seriously, they may face commercial litigation for any resulting security breaches.

Fine line of copyright infringement in magic shows

Magic performances are common in Las Vegas, and many would argue that they are one of the primary reasons tourists visit the city.

When entertainers become aware that their protected work is being used by someone else, they sometimes turn to civil litigation to halt this unlicensed use.

Las Vegas is a city known for having a fun, relaxing atmosphere and a thriving entertainment industry.

If a fatality results from a drunk driving collision, the family members of the deceased person may wish to pursue civil litigation against the intoxicated driver.
