by Dennis Crouch
A decade ago, the US Supreme Court issued a pair of decisions that upended substantial aspects of patent practice.Mayo Collaborative Servs.v. Prometheus Labs., Inc., 566 U.S. 66 (2012); and Alice Corp. Pty.Ltd. v. CLS Bank Int'l, 573 U.S. 208 (2014).These cases broadened scope of the "abstract idea" and "law of nature" exclusions in ways that largely overlap with other patent law doctrines, such as obviousness, indefiniteness, and even enablement.

Editorial: An unfair plan to cut California's use of Colorado River water

The immediate question before the seven states that use rapidly vanishing Colorado River water is not how to renegotiate the century-old agreement and accompanying laws that divvy up the supply.California and other states will have to grapple with that problem soon enough, and it won't be easy.Those accords were hammered out in an era when the Western U.S. was lightly populated, farmland was not yet fully developed and the climate - although few realized it at the time - was unusually wet.
