Samsung must defend a would-be class action alleging it misrepresented information about the battery life on a smart watch. Samsung Electronics America Inc. won dismissal of two claims by lead plaintiff David W. Noble stemming from his 2014 purchase of a Samsung Galaxy Gear S Smartwatch for $199. The suit alleges Samsung represented that the smartwatch battery would last 24 to 48 hours without being recharged. But Noble’s device only last about four hours between charges, his suit said.
Wiley Rein’s pro bono team knew it would be heart-wrenching to interview the prospective civil rights plaintiff, a 17-year-old Mexican immigrant with acknowledged mental health problems. The lawyers had been contacted by the Washington Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights and Urban Affairs based on Wiley Rein’s familiarity with immigration matters and past involvement in pro bono litigation over conditions of juvenile confinement.
Virtual reality could be the next evolution in courtroom presentations, but proponents must resolve uncertainties if it’s to gain a beachhead in the button-downed legal profession. Leading practitioners and experts interviewed by Bloomberg Law largely embrace the immersive technology and its potential legal applications. But they also acknowledge lingering concerns about logistics, cost, and economic inequities.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
