Monday Morning Mash-up: April 9, 2012

Whew. Just under the wire. It’s still technically morning here in Seattle, so the MMM can still be called the MMM and not the MAM. All you East Coasters or other time zoners will just have to deal with it if it is already afternoon where you are. Sorry.

Radiohead is in town tonight, playing at Key Arena. I will be in attendance. So it is only fitting that today’s song of the week is Thom Yorke looking totally twitchy and Thom Yorke-ish in Radiohead’s video for Lotus Flower:


And now on to last week’s Court of Appeals decisions:

American Honda Motor Company v. City of Seattle (Division 1, April 2, 2012) — on Seattle’s Business and Occupation tax and the Import-Export Clause of the Constitution.

Buecking v. Buecking (Division 1, April 2, 2012) — on whether statutory time limits for requests for dissolution are jurisdictional limits on the Superior Courts.

Karlberg v. Otten (Division 1, April 2, 2012) — on whether res judicata applies to cases determining property boundary points or to cases determining property boundary lines.

King County v. King County DDES (Division 1, April 2, 2012) — on determining the timing for establishment of nonconforming uses, along with a bad R. Kelly reference. (emphasis added, just because).

Hanks v. Grace (Division 1, April 2, 2012) — on the invalidation of releases for real estate brokers because such releases violate Washington public policy.
