The handling of evidence in a civil appeal

It may be easy for those with little experience in the legal world to assume that trials are cut-and-dry for the most part. However, a Las Vegas civil trial often involves more than both sides presenting their case and awaiting the jury or judge’s verdict. This is particularly true if someone wants to appeal a case. Since an appeal is not actually a new trial, it can help to understand how evidence is handled during a civil appeal.

Taylor Swift stands up for payment rights of music artists

Countless people in Las Vegas enjoy the convenience of streaming music. If it can be legally accessed for free, even better. However, artists have certain commercial rights, including the right to be paid for their work. Companies that provide streaming services to consumers pay musicians for the right to put their music up. Music streaming companies may earn revenue through advertisements, or consumers may pay a monthly fee to access music ad-free. Occasionally, streaming companies will promote a service by offering it for free for a limited time.

Accommodating religion in the workplace

We live in an interesting age where science and technology must work, in many cases, hand in hand with religion – at least in terms of accepting and accommodating the religious beliefs of others in the workplace. Whether you are a manager or business owner, or a person with beliefs that are important to you, you have certain legal rights and responsibilities. At the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., we understand the ways in which Nevada businesses must uphold federal laws regarding religious rights in the workplace.

Can you enforce an oral contract?

In the business world, contracts can mean everything. This is true whether you are purchasing a product or service, doing business with a company or signing an employment agreement. What about oral contracts – agreements that are only made by a verbal affirmation and maybe a handshake? Are oral contracts legal in Nevada? Is a contract dispute arising from an oral contract admissible in court?

Sparks company under investigation for deceptive practices

When consumers in Las Vegas and across the country invest their time or money into a product, it is reasonable to expect sufficient results at the very least. This is also true if they are doing business with a company that offers a service instead of a physical product. All too often, there are businesses that deliver products or services that are less than what they promised. In many of these cases, business litigation resulting from fraud or other allegations can result.

Responsibilities a residential property owner must know

Household mishaps like dealing with broken pipes or tripping on uneven walkways are a part of life. However, if you own a Las Vegas rental property such as an apartment, townhouse or retirement home, some of these situations can be prevented by regular upkeep and maintenance. In fact, it is your responsibility to keep your tenants and visitors safe from accidents resulting from a preventable condition. If you fail to do so, you may find yourself defending a premises liability lawsuit. At the Aldrich Law Firm, Ltd., we have seen numerous cases in which a property owner was sued because someone was hurt on the premises.

How does an appeal differ from a trial?

To those who are not familiar with the law on a daily basis, the differences between civil trials, appeals and other legal procedures may not be very clear. If you are like many other residents in Las Vegas, you might even use the terms “civil appeals” and “jury trial” interchangeably. Until you find yourself going through a court process, these definitions might not mean that much to you. However, it can help you to understand the key differences between these two courtroom processes – especially if appealing a case ever becomes an option for you.

Understanding trademark infringement

Most businesses try to use distinctive trademarks so consumers recognize them, whether they are a huge international company or a local Las Vegas business. Trademarks legally belong to the company or business owner. Copying or using a trademark that belongs to another company is known as trademark infringement and can result in business litigation.
