Read the suit in all its glory here.

Jeffrey Lapin‘s insight:

Rhawn Joseph, Ph.D., a self-described scientist and author, filed a Petition for a Request for a Writ of Mandamus against NASA and the NASA’s Chief Administrator. A writ of mandamus is an order from a court ordering a public official to perform his or her official duties. The Petition relates to an object that showed up in a some images from the Mars Opportunity Rover. The title of the Petition gives an indication of what Mr. Joseph believes the object is: 

 

In Re RHAWN JOSEPH’S PETITION FOR A WRIT OF MANDAMUS COMPELLING NASA TO PERFORM A DUTY TO THOROUGHLY SCIENTIFICALLY EXAMINE AND INVESTIGATE A PUTATIVE BIOLOGICAL ORGANISM ON MARS IDENTIFIED/DISCOVERED BY PETITIONER AND REFERRED TO BY NASA AS “UNLIKE ANYTHING WE HAVE SEEN BEFORE"

 

Among the things the court to order is: 

NASA must give the petitioner: A) the authority to act as an observer at the rover command facility to insure that the Court’s orders are carried out in good faith, and B) the authority to appoint two NASA astrobiologists to the rover team. If the organism is biological, NASA must publicly acknowledge that the discovery was made by the Petitioner and must ensure that Petitioner appears as first author on and has final editorial approval of the first 6 scientific articles published or submitted for publication by NASA employees which discuss and present this discover. 

 

This Petition was filed by Mr. Joseph himself; he does not have an attorney. 

 

NASA has explained that the item is a most likely a rock that landed where it did either because of a nearby impact or the Rover knocked the rock out of the ground.

OfficeMax Letter Addressed to “Daughter Killed in Car Crash”

By: Jeffrey Lapin of Lapin Law Offices

OfficeMax sent a letter to Mike Seay, whose daughter had been killed in a car crash last year, with the second line: “Daughter Killed in Car Crash.”
OfficeMax Letter Address Block Addressed to "Daughter Killed in Car Crash"
OfficeMax has issued a press release, which states, in part:
This mailing is a result of a mailing list rented through a third-party provider. We have reached out to the third-party mailing list provider to research what happened. Based on a preliminary investigation today we believe this to be an inadvertent error; and we are continuing the investigation.
Besides being extremely cruel and reminding this family of their loss, this shows how much information retailers have about their customers. 
Two lessons from this very unfortunate incident: 
  1. To Consumers: Be careful what information you give out to companies. This information is likely being accumulated and sold.
  2. To Marketers: Watch out what you send to customers or potential customers.
