Congratulations to (semi) retired LCDLA member Floyd Holder. He filed a pretrial motion to dismiss based on the supremacy clause, forcing a dismissal on two counts of theft of trade secrets in 140th. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a case involving the supremacy clause*, but I want Floyd to provide a copy of his brief to us for our Members Only Brief Bank.

*The Supremacy Clause is the common name given to Article VI, Clause 2 of the United States Constitution, which reads:

“This Constitution, and the Laws of the United States which shall be made in Pursuance thereof; and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the authority of the United States, shall be the supreme Law of the land; and the Judges in every State shall be bound thereby, any Thing in the Constitution or Laws of any State to the Contrary notwithstanding.”
