A Bit of Legal Humor

Sometimes a lawyer just does something that catches us by surprise.  Such is a recent letter sent by N.J. attorney  Stephen B. Kaplitt in a pro bono capacity for a client that received a Cease and Desist communication from the township where the client lived.  It is highbrow humor but the meaning is certainly the shining beacon at the center of this attorney’s letter to the Township of West Orange, NJ.

A Cease and Desist communication is relatively common in business and typically serves as a request to a person or company to halt a particular action or activity and also to not resume doing that action again in the future.  A cease and desist letter can be sent by an individual or a corporation.

Many times this type of letter is used in the process of protecting (or attempting to protect) a trademark, a service mark, or other intangible asset.   You may also see this type of communication used in landlord/tenant situations or issues between neighbors.  There are some common general forms available online but before you use a generic form be sure the form you plan to use has the proper and necessary wording for your situation.

If you ever receive such a communication or think you need to send one, call me (321-631-0506) or email.  Initial consultations are always provided at no charge.

Cocoa Village Mardi Gras Time is Here Again

… And Legal Eagles is entering a float in the parade this year.  You’ll have to attend the event to see what the float is all about but so far there is a House and  Jail Cell being built for the float.  I’ve heard a rumor that there may be a “convict” in the jail cell but I can’t confirm or deny the identity of that potential convict.

Mardi Gras in Cocoa Village is February 9-10 and the parade is on Feb. 9th starting around 9pm.  The floats will circle Cocoa Village twice and everyone attending is sure to leave with as many beads as they can carry!

For more information on the Cocoa Village Mardi Gras weekend festivities (including Kiddie events and Paws in the Park) visit the main website of the celebration.
