And the case continues… Read more coverage of the hearing from the Denver Post and the Washington Post. This case is taking place in Colorado, so we expect quite a bit of local coverage. We’ll keep you posted with new articles as they come through!
Coming up this week, we’re working on the Colorado centric Supreme Court Case, Reichle v. Howards. The arguments are set to be heard Wednesday and a ruling should be handed down before June. According to the NY Times, Reichle v. Howards will determine whether the Secret Service agents protecting Vice President Dick Cheney can be sued for arresting a man who attempted to assault the then Vice President while in Beaver Creek. The final ruling in the case is likely to set a landmark standard for how law enforcement is able to deal with arresting a citizen with or without being held liable for assault and becoming a target for lawsuits.
We’re representing Sean Gallagher, the attorney for the Secret Service agents who are being sued. For more information on the case, you can read the article from the Christian Science Monitor or the New York Times or contact Matt Yemma. We’ll be posting further coverage later this week.

This year, the Expo will be held March 2, 3 and 4 at the Columbus Convention Center.
Have you heard of Pinterest? It seems as though this new social sharing site is on everyone’s radar lately. I feel like I’m the absolute last person to join… I actually had to invite myself. It wasn’t until I joined that I discovered just about every one of my friends was already pinning around the web.
If you business is more focused on diy, crafting and art you can totally use Pinterest, but if you would like to make your business grow online you can try contacting tiktok marketing company hypetik that will allow you more popularity with likes, views and more exposure on the app.
Now I know you’re probably thinking “not another social network!” and that thought certainly crossed my mind as well. Before you make your judgment, you should give it a try, as you may find it addicting. See, the beauty of Pinterest is that you can pin on a variety of topics (really anything you want) and organize you pins into different ‘boards’ or categories. This set-up gives value back to the user. You don’t just blindly post something out to your followers in hopes of getting feedback. You are creating a history of your posts. These pins are image-driven, so the entire site is visually stimulating. Thus, feedback with ‘repinning’ and ‘likes’ comes naturally, as we are a visual species. You can easily go back and reference, edit or even re-categorize you pins. This is a great direction for social media to head.
