Q: 

Everything Amendable In US constitution? How to incorporate an Amendment Lock

A:  >What''s absent is the legal equivalent of a feedback loop that keepsthe lock intact. Your solution is sxtremely complex--- and all we would need to circumvent it would be a "boltcutter" amendment. As it is, it is pretty hard to amend the constitution. ***** Tim Horrigan <horrigan...aol.com> ***** >As it is, it is pretty hard to amend the constitution. The procedures in our current constitution are designed to make it tough but not TOO tough to amend the constitution. If you make it too tough to amend a constitution, you run the risk of the country simply scrapping it in favor of a whole new constitution. If you make it...

Q: 

14th amendment liberty rights violated

A:  You had 10 days to respond. You didn't. That's the end of that. The 14th amendment does not guarantee you a hearing to clear your name. You're overlooking a couple key points: 1) you had 10 days to ASK for the hearing. The hearing wasn't going to be held within that 10 day period so you didn't need to find an attorney before you made the request. Therefore, the only reason you didn't get a hearing was because you didn't ask for it. Second, Roth doesn't stand for the proposition that you have constitutional right to "clear your good name." It says that if you are dismissed for alleged wrongdoing, you have a right to due process and an opportunity to refute the charge. You did HAVE that right, you just did not take...

Q: 

Prev. Working PT but Denied UI Because Not Looking for FT Work--Q

A:  Originally Posted by curlyroller I''ll try to keep this short and sweet. Thanks in advance for reading it and any help you can give. Bottom Line (more details below): Is it acceptable/legal to deny UI benefits to someone with a disability that reduced the number of hours they could work because they can''t work the same number of hours as they were working in their base period? Brief Explanation of Circumstances: Beginning in February 2010 I was put on part time hours by my physician. Initially, this was done under FMLA. I was notified 4/16/10 that my FMLA was running out and submitted a request for accommodation due to disability that would allow me to continue working part time. As I anticipated, that was denied and I was terminated in writing due to this on 4/30/10. I applied for...

Q: 

Can I challenge declaration amendment before it is recorded?

A:  Answer to myself: You cannot block the recording of bogus amendment, not in Vermont at least. Consequently, land records are, by now, full of weak and amateurish hacks added to declarations and bylaws. For my own association, I am crazy enough to want to force them to clean up the bogus amendments before a time bomb with serious consequences does blow up. Legally speaking, if there is no financial harm, there is basically nothing that can be done to challenge a bogus amendment. It takes financial harm before I can take this to a Court in Vermont. In court, it would go to mediation and could be cleaned up. Consequently, I need to find a financial harm that I can take to small claims court as a test case, to prove my...

Q: 

considering amendments while drafting claims

A:  The answers to your question really depend on what countries law you are talking about, and since you are asking about a PCT application, I''m not going to assume that US law is the only thing you care about. In general, most countries don''t apply the kind of file history estoppel or have doctrine of equivalents as in US law.

Q: 

Ammendment in Office action

A:  If claim 2 was allowed, then combining claim 1 with claim 2 should result in an allowable independent claim. Whether or not this is a good strategy depends on many factors. One thing to remember is that Claims 3-10 in your example also depend from Claim 1.  So, amending Claim 1 to incorporate the limitations of Claim 2 effectively incorporates the limitations of Claim 2 into Claims 3-10 as well.  If Claims 3-10 already depended from Claim 2, there''s no problem.  If not, you may have unwittingly narrowed Claims 3-10.   Just be aware of what you''re doing and why.

Q: 

ownership of

A:  Before I get to your questions, you should note that pendencies of over 3 years are not at all uncommon -- particularly in software technology. Quote Ivey, your answer was of tremendous help. The official status of the application as it appears on the USPTO''s web site is "Abandoned -- Failure to Respond to an Office Action". Apparently the last transaction (a Non-final rejection) has been mailed before March 2004. Does this mean that one year has passed and revival is hopeless? Second question - since I am the original (sole) inventor, and the company has never pursued the patent or even assigned it to their name (they are not referenced anywhere in the USPTO records), could I proclaim ownership based on their apparent abandonment and lack of interest in it?
