Bone McAllester Norton digs into drones

Downtown law firm Bone McAllester Norton sees potential for the emergence of drones in commerce and has expanded its Entrepreneurial and Emerging Business Law practice group to include work on the corporate, IP and privacy aspects of putting drones to business use. Leading the effort is James Mackler, a former U.S. Army Blackhawk pilot who joined Bone in 2011.

“With the FAA’s injunction to integrate drones into commercial airspace and the designation of 16 test sites nationwide, the growing opportunities—and risks—associated with drones cannot be ignored,” Mackler said. “We have a strong group of attorneys with sophisticated experience that will be able to provide counsel to individuals and corporations wanting to leverage the power of UAS within existing business models or seeking to start a new venture within the UAS sphere.”

Going on a Twitter rant? You could be opening yourself up to litigation

The Tennessee Court of Appeals this week said that false light invasion of privacy claims made by a local Southwest Airlines flight attendant against a songwriter who has fired off a series of tweets complaining about customer service can stand. Natalie Grant had taken to Twitter to voice her displeasure at not being able to board her entire family early and called out Jennifer Patterson, who lives in Goodlettsville. Patterson responded by filing suit and accusing Grant of defamation and invasion of privacy.

The appeals court on Tuesday let stand only the first of those claims. The other shall proceed. Our man Steve Cavendish has the details over at Pith.
