When you are involved in an accident with a commercial truck driver, the truck driver is not the only entity you can go after for damages while pursuing a personal injury lawsuit. The trucking company that the truck driver works for is also responsible for ensuring that their drivers and trucks behave in a safe manner on the road and follow all the federal and state regulations. Your lawyer can request the maintenance records for the trucking company in order to determine if the trucking company can be held responsible for the events and circumstances that lead to your accident.
It seems as if Pokemon Go has changed the scope of smartphone gaming. Players are forced to walk around in order to play, hunting Pokemon and fighting in gym battles as they do.

In general, employers are not legally prohibited from providing true information about a former employer to a new company they are applying to. The law provides protection from providing honest feedback about work performance of those who worked for them. However, a line can be crossed if a former employer is misrepresentative about that person's work performance or is dishonest about reference information. Doing so can result in a defamation lawsuit if you are found to be untruthful about your former employees.
