The Impact Trauma Can Have on Your Child After an Injury in Texas

Previously, it was widely believed that trauma was limited to soldiers who had experienced extreme events outside normal human experiences.

Bottled formulas are a common replacement for breastfeeding.

(February 27, 2023) Enfamil recalled nearly 145,000 cans of plant-based baby formula on Sunday, February 19, 2023, due to potential contamination. The parent company, Reckitt, said in a statement that the recall was out of an “abundance of caution” and that all of the distributed products tested negative but that the recalled cans may have been contaminated with Cronobacter sakazakii. Unfortunately, this is not the first time Enfamil has had potentially life-threatening products on the shelves.

(February 8, 2023) Texas grocery giant H-E-B appealed to the Supreme Court of Texas on February 3, 2023, over a business disparagement and defamation lawsuit filed by Maverick International Ltd. back in March of 2021. H-E-B has argued in their appeal to the Supreme Court, which was previously denied by the 9th Court of Appeals in Beaumont, that the comments they are being sued over should have been protected under the Texas Citizen’s Participation Act (TCPA) but that the commercial exception to the act “categorically excludes retailers.” So, what is the TCPA, and how does the commercial exemption exclude major retailers from protection against business disparagement claims?

Did you know?

The Texas Citizen’s Participation Act was first signed into law on June 17, 2011, in response to a growing number of business disparagement lawsuits originating from online reviews.

Which parts of the vehicle can the police search?

(December 28, 2022) In a previous post, we discussed search and seizure laws pertaining to automobiles. We saw how a warrantless vehicle search must meet two requirements: probable cause and mobility. But how much of the vehicle can police officers search under this rule? If they see evidence of illegal contraband (illegal substances, for example), do they have the ability to search the entire vehicle? What about bags or locked containers in the passenger compartment or trunk? Let’s take a look at what’s covered under the mobile conveyance exception – and what is not.

Searching a vehicle without a warrant

(December 28, 2022) The United States Supreme Court case Mapp v. Ohio established the historic exclusionary rule, which forbids any evidence collected illegally to be used in court, which is consistent with the fourth amendment that protects against unreasonable search and seizure. However, this rule created a tricky situation for traffic officers. It frequently happened that traffic officers had probable cause to believe that illegal activity was being enabled by automobiles. However, by the time they came back with a warrant to search the vehicle, it was out of their jurisdiction, or the evidence was gone. To combat this problem, the Supreme Court ruled in Carroll v. United States to include an automobile exception to the exclusionary rule that allowed traffic officers to conduct warrantless vehicle searches… if certain conditions were met. So, when can an officer search your vehicle without your consent?
