- Sound Off: Home warranties can be worth the cost
Friday Jun 23, 2017
Be sure to read the warranty coverage and the fine print so you know what is covered and what is not.Be sure to always call the home warranty company first to see if the repair/replacement is a covered item.If you have the item repaired without contacting the home warranty company first, chances are you will not recover the expense.Plumbing, electrical and heating issues, including breakdown of the hot water heater, furnace and appliances, can be quite costly at a time when significant assets have been invested in your home.Home warranties are particularly valuable in properties with older appliances, and our usual recommendation is a one-year warranty.Sellers can also purchase coverage which typically covers many issues that may arise during the marketing and escrow periods in addition to one year of coverage commencing at closing.A home warranty covers the cost to repair or replace appliances and systems within a home and is a wise choice for anyone buying a property!The plan is far less expensive than purchasing extended warranties on your appliances, and you can have the electrical, plumbing, heating and cooling systems covered as well.Most home buyers are cash poor for awhile and in San Francisco are usually buying older homes, so not only is a home warranty very affordable, but also it’s likely to be used.

- Waymo puts Uber lawyers in hot seat over trade-secret theft
By Joel Rosenblatt - Wednesday Jul 26, 2017
Waymo claims Uber Technologies Inc. had an accomplice in the theft of invaluable driverless technology trade secrets — the ride-hailing giant’s own lawyers.Waymo is aiming to use those details to buttress its claims Uber colluded with Levandowski to steal prized technology in the heated race to commercialize autonomous vehicles.Uber contends Waymo is mischaracterizing the actions of its outside lawyers, who it says did the right thing by hiring cyberforensics firm Stroz Friedberg to quarantine any sensitive information Levandowski had from Waymo or Google — and wall it off from Uber — during the due-diligence vetting of the Ottomotto acquisition.“MoFo and Stroz were retained for the very purpose of preventing any violation of intellectual property rights in connection with Uber’s acquisition of Ottomotto, and were contractually bound not to (and did not) disclose to Uber any confidential or proprietary Waymo information,” Uber argued in a court filing.In recent weeks, lawyers at another firm representing Uber — Boies, Schiller & Flexner — have taken on a more prominent role drafting court filings and representing the company in hearings.Waymo has also accused Stroz and Morrison of violating court orders to turn over proprietary information, including files from the law firm’s representation of Levandowski in arbitration proceedings brought by Google last year.Haag held her post as Northern California’s top prosecutor from 2010 to 2015 under President Barack Obama, leading one of the largest regional outposts of the Justice Department and one of the most active in white-collar prosecutions.
