Off Topic: "Motion to Strike Hunger"

Please pardon this interruption from our usual punitive damages programming, but it's for a good cause. You may not have heard, but September 2008 is national Hunger Action Month. From September 15 to September 30, our firm (Horvitz & Levy) is sponsoring a "Motion to Strike Hunger" food drive to benefit the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, which provides food to over one million people in Los Angeles County who are struggling to feed their families.

We invite our Los Angeles area readers to join us by doing any of the following :

(1) signing up to hold a food drive at your firm or business from September 15 to September 30 (it's very easy - - just sign up here and the food bank will deliver collection barrels and pick up the donations at the end of the food drive)

(2) scheduling your own volunteer day

and/or (3) making a cash donation.

The firm that donates the most pounds of food per capita will earn the title of “Most Generous Movant.” (This is an appeal to litigators who enjoy the thrill of competition but, of course, the good feeling of giving is its own reward.)
