An embarrassing mistake involving a Statue of Liberty stamp could come back to haunt the U.S. Postal Service. The "forever" stamp design released in 2011 was not based on the statue in New York Harbor, as intended, but on a replica outside the New York-New York casino hotel in Las Vegas.

Employers hoped the California Supreme Court’s long-awaited ruling in Brinker v. Superior Court of San Diego would put an end to class actions alleging violation of California’s meal period laws. It did not.

The California Bar is set to consider how it might implement a recommendation that law students take 15 hours of “practice-based, experiential” course work prior to bar admission. (I’m assuming the trustees will adopt the recommendation.) For many students, such a requirement won’t change much. Most schools, mine included, offer many clinics, courses and externship programs that fit that bill. Lots of students take them. The requirement will be a change for others, but I think it will be a good one. There is a lot to be said for learning by doing. We need to get implementation right, of course, but we will. The recommendation was meant to nudge us, and we have been nudged.
Because of budget constraints, litigation generally is becoming more expensive and difficult to manage.
The federal government is aggressively seeking damages against employers who fail to pay interns for the work they perform. Under the Fair Labor Standards Act, covered, non-exempt individuals who are “permitted” to work must be compensated for their services.

Interns qualifying as employees must be paid at least the minimum wage and overtime for hours worked over 40 in a workweek.
