The back and forth story of a little boy whose Brazilian mother, Bruna Bianchi, took him back home with here after she decided to divorce the boy’s father, American, David Goldman , and remarried , but passed away trying to give birth to anther child …..Maybe ending soon…..

Chief Justice Gilmar Mendes of the Brazilian Supreme Court issued his decision, which is immediately binding, that boy must be turned over to his biological father……the boy’s, mother’s family does not want the child to leave ….Neither does his mother’s new husband….

Sean Goldman has been in Brazil since 2004, and his mother’s new husband is a lawyer…..

David Goldman will now wait to see if the family follows the Judges ruling……

The situation has been discussed between the U.S. and Brazil at the highest diplomatic levels……

The last vote on the Healthcare Bill will be at 8 a.m. on Christmas Eve…..

There have been two procedural votes so far…in both the Democrats have had 60 votes…even though they just needed a simple majority on the last vote……

There will be Healthcare Bill for Christmas…….

I’m sorry it doesn’t look like it will be bipartisan ……

and the liberals and progressives ain’t too happy either……

Judge orders Microsoft to stop selling its Word Software on January 11….don't worry….. they have a solution….

Come on folks….. This is about money…..Toronto based i4i Inc. took the giant software company to court over a feature that they invented that mysteriously showed up in Microsoft’s Word software…..The giant company , instead of settling rode the suit thru...and lost…..

The Texas jury that got the case found Microsoft guilty of copyright infringement …and on Appeal….the U.S. Court of Appeals agreed with the jury’s decision, and the judge involved  issued an injunction stopping the company from selling the software with the i4i application in it…..(he gave them 60 days to fix the software, which they are doing)

Microsoft fearing it might lose in the Appeals court is already about to release an updated version of Word that drops the XML code application  from i4i…….so the Word software will still be available after January 11, 2010…..

Oh, yea…Microsoft has to pay i4i Inc. $290 million, the jury ruled…I’m sure they will appeal that…but hey, they are going to have to pay the i4i some money……

Note:….The lawyer for Microsoft, superstar patent litigator Matt Powers, got the original judge so pissed, that he leveled a $40 million fine on Microsoft…..wooeee!

Here’s the link to the story at the Wall Street Journal….It’s a pisser!…..

Note #2…… Don’t hire Matt Power to handle your patent case…..
