tonight instead of talking about food and home and lifestyle my my that's like my field of work I thought I would talk about something that I wrote quite a long time ago called standards of perfection the foundation of taste is comparison the examination of two things which is better than the adding of the third just see which is the best my own quest for the best starting at the Nutley public library in New Jersey the children's room librarian Mrs Marguerite a whole new every single book on the shelves and she stared each of those lines that would set my standards for life inventions of the adventures of back or the elephant the doctor do little books the secret garden in time graduated to the Stockton room where I discovered that that hawthorn Jane Austen and of course Charles Dickens in the eighth grade I was admitted to the adult library upstairs where my appetite for reading was went even further already curious about the writer's craft I want to discover the keygen good literature sometimes reading several books on the same subject to figure out just how one was better than the next during high school I took courses in art and decoration of the Newark museum or entry was introduced to the techniques for distinguishing great art from good those techniques seemed arbitrary then sometimes especially when I look at contemporary art or architecture I couldn't fathom how many teachers or the scholars whose books we were spreading and decided what was the best college so everything became much clearer I studied history of art architecture and decorative arts my

Francesca tenure and Giotto yes I was a magnificent collection for his father and when he returns home is disowned and discredited all because his case is ahead of this time is Wharton's young man made his selections by the simple act of comparison you look at one group of paintings and then others he chose the best my studies taught me how to do the same this comparative approaches also exemplified by a marvelous picture book fine points furniture published by crown way back in nineteen fifty its author Albert sacks discusses the history of American furniture to the eighteen twenties and shows the good better and best examples of each style the most wonderful thing about that is that when you look at the three examples together you instinctively know which is the best and the comparison you and through comparison you learn the fine points of craftsmanship and design and can then use that knowledge to judge any piece of furniture we can compare chairs or apples or books recipes or even some animals specially bred horses dogs or cats this principle of comparison by which one arrives and standard of perfection applies to many areas of life but don't apply it to people

Lisa glad argued that a judgment against her client will set a bad precedent for many American businesses. If Romantic and others others have to prove willful infringement. Instead of just the fact of infringement the cost could be prohibitive. It's expensive to monitor this sort of cheating and to build up a case taste that it is willful and not some easier to prove standard like negligent or reckless justice. Elena Kagan looked for some middle path to think it's open to US Miss Blat to pick a position someplace between you and Mr Cot. Ya another words Mr Cot. y'All says never under any circumstances in you got the profits without wilfulness and you say well wilfulness is just one factor among the things that you think about now. This gets a little bit into the weeds of the patent law. But one wrinkle is that fossil and Rome egg are not direct competitors one makes purses the other makes a component of purses this this case would be easier if they were direct competitors because the law is clear and the circuits aren't split on the issue. The justices seemed to favour romantic in their questions. Gyms so my guess is Fossil Inc.. We'll have to pay up more closely monitor. Its own operations. The last case today does involve direct competitors. One is lucky brand dungarees ink maker of Denim Jeans and other wearables. The other side is Marcel.

This is a highly technical case that will govern legal procedure what the parties are arguing over. is the scope of Race Judy Cada. That's a Latin term term for a matter. Already judged you also hear the concept referred to as preclusion and that means a party is precluded from pursuing an issue or reclaim again and the question will get to whether race. Judo Kata includes not just claims but defenses. Let's close with a peak into justice. Stephen Briers thought process in sorting out what this case is about he mentions his civil procedure professor at Harvard. Law School the late Albert Sacks. I don't understand what art art were supposed to decide. I thought that we took this case because assuming that the law is what it seems to have always been that we're a sues B and the suits over then a Susan B again for identical conduct which took place After the suit was over I thought in one thousand nine hundred sixty one in Al Sachs's procedure class and things may have changed that I learned that the second suit is a new suit and therefore people can raise claims and that because flit is a justice. GINSBURG said exactly that. And she said that and it took her about a minute and it took all sacks I think about an hour because it but there we are and you started by saying that so I thought well I agree with that but I I thought that the case was about the second circuit trying to have a new rule while this made me smile because first year civil procedure is shelley say memorable and it seems no lawyer forgets who taught it in law school justice justice. Breyer didn't forget either. And that was fifty nine years ago and while I'm appreciating the justices today I'll say that one thing I appreciate about justice.
