  1. Quick questions for the peanut gallery:

    Is there a minimum dollar amount for minor's compromises? In other words, if we settle a really small claim, can we just skip the whole minor's comp process? And if so, would we still have to use a blocked trust account for the kid's money, or can we just release it to the parents now?

    2. No minimum in the statute. The whole point is to protect the minor. What if some dumbass is trying to settle their kid's $1,000,000.00 claim for $250.00 because the insurance company is willing to pay that difference to dumbass for a bullshit loss of consortium claim so the money is pocketed and the claim lost forever. In other words, it's the judge's job to determine if the settlement is fair, not the PI attorney.

    4. It sounds like it's up to the insurance company / defense, then. There's nothing that requires the Plaintiff to file one if the other side doesn't care?

  2. Elvis left the building. He left the Westgate.

  3. Elvis is still there. The $2.25MM is also coming to the Westgate, just in time for another Queen of Versailles movie.

  6. The Nevada Supreme Court entered an Order today upholding the 3 year suspension of Paul Wommer effective December 17, 2013. That means Wommer's suspension would have ended December 2016 but for the fact that the Nevada Supreme Court is so slow in deciding cases. Justice delayed. Since the Nevada Court of Appeals was installed, cases in the front of the Supreme Court are taking more time, not less time.
