The Common Scold

The Common Scold is named after a cause of action that originated in Pilgrim days, when meddlesome, argumentative, opinionated women who displeased the Puritan elders were punished by a brisk dunk in the local pond. Believe it or not, the tort lasted until 1972, when State v. Palendrano, 120 N.J. Super. 336, 293 A.2d 747 (N.J.Super.L., Jul 13, 1972) pretty much put it to rest. But the thought of those feisty women, not afraid of a little cold water, has always cheered me up and inspired me. I first used the moniker as the name of my humor column at the University of San Francisco School of Law many moons ago, and revive it now for this blawg!

Sean Doherty reports from Guidance's CEIC

Ceic_monitors128Although Guidance Software revenue in the first quarter of 2013 was approximately $26 million — up from $23 million in the first quarter of 2011— Victor T. Limogelli was disappointed. The 2013 first quarter results did not meet his expectations, for three primary reasons, said Limongelli, CEO, president, and director of the computer forensic and e-discovery software company, during a Q1 2013 Earnings Call on May 2.

Limongelli capsulized the reasons in the call, which precedes the company's popular annual conference known by its acronym CEIC, (née The Computer and Enterprise Investigations Conference) that runs May 19 to 21. The Guidance Software-sponsored event tackles cybersecurity, e-discovery, and digital investigations, offering hands-on labs, lectures, and an exhibit hall. It is held this year at the Rosen Shingle Creek in Orlando, Fla.
