Icy roads and freezing temps sweeping across Texas and a lot of the United States this weekend and early next week are creating very dangerous driving situations on our roads. Please think twice before heading out for a Valentine's Day date or long weekend trip. This bad weather gives you the perfect excuse to stay in and keep it low key. Stay safe! We hope you don’t need us, but if you or a loved one are injured in a wreck, call our experienced team of lawyers at 1-800-TruckWreck. We are here to help!
3M litigation is in full swing for the first group of trial cases. Judge Rodgers held a case management conference on January 22, 2021, and the first trial date has been moved up to March 29, 2021 in a consolidated trial. Judge Rodgers will wait to see how consolidated trials for the first group will go before deciding as to the other trial groups. Great progress is being made as the expert designation and discovery will conclude in February and will be useful in all pending cases against 3M. As always, if you have a specific question about your case, please don’t hesitate to contact your case manager.
February marks Black History Month. This is a time to recognize the contributions that African Americans have made to American history and a time to deepen our understanding of our Nation's history. While this month has been celebrated for over 100 years, President Gerald Ford officially recognized Black History Month in 1976, calling upon the country to “seize the opportunity to honor the too-often neglected accomplishments of Black Americans in every area of endeavor throughout our history.” Mostyn Law invited our employees to share how they plan to celebrate Black History Month with their families.

How will you and your family celebrate Black History Month?
Serving our community is an integral part of our mission at Mostyn Law. In honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day last month, Mostyn Law was proud to support the Black Heritage Society’s volunteer day at the Virtual MLK Day Parade. MLK Day is the only federal holiday designated as a national day of service to encourage all Americans to volunteer to improve their communities. We continue to honor Dr. King’s work and legacy by supporting organizations that work to break down barriers and systems that he gave his life to change.
This month the Lunar New Year falls on February 12, 2021! It's called the Lunar New Year because it marks the first new moon of the lunisolar calendars traditional to many east Asian countries including China and Vietnam, which are regulated by the cycles of the moon and sun. As the New York Times explains, "A solar year—the time it takes Earth to orbit the sun—lasts around 365 days, while a lunar year, or 12 full cycles of the Moon, is roughly 354 days."
In many countries, the celebration of the Lunar New Year lasts for 15 days. The celebration is online and free so anyone can attend. The virtual festival can be enjoyed February 11th-13th at https://www.ccchouston.org/LunarNewYear. We wish you happiness, good health, prosperity, and many precious moments with your loved ones in 2021!
