Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig Scores Huge Win in First Amendment Rights Case

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig prevails in a win for the Republican Party of Virginia before the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit

By affirming the lower court’s decision, the Fourth Circuit has implicitly upheld the First Amendment rights of the Republican party—and in fact, all political parties.”

— Cortland Putbrese

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, December 12, 2018 / — Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig, a leading corporate and intellectual property law firm with law offices across the U.S., Puerto Rico, London, Toronto, and China, announces a significant victory in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit for the statewide Republican Party of Virginia. Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig has been defending the Republican Party of Virginia (RPV) and the Frederick County Republican Committee (FCRC) in a lawsuit filed against them by plaintiffs Jay Marts and Dana Newcomb.

Mr. Marts and Mr. Newcomb are two former Republican Party members who lost their party membership due to their public advocacy against the GOP’s nominees. The plaintiffs filed suit in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Virginia, alleging that the Republican Party’s membership requirements violated their constitutional rights. The district court dismissed the case because political parties are not government entities and the Republican Party’s management of its own internal affairs did not constitute actionable government conduct, but instead was an exercise of the GOP’s own fundamental right to freedom of association. Because the Republican Party’s actions were not government conduct, but instead were private activities protected by the First Amendment, the district court found that Mr. Marts and Mr. Newcomb had not properly alleged a constitutional violation.

The plaintiffs then appealed to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, claiming that the district court erred in dismissing their suit. The Fourth Circuit disagreed and ruled in favor of the Republican Party. "This is an important win. By affirming the lower court’s decision, the Fourth Circuit has implicitly upheld the First Amendment rights of the Republican party—and in fact, all political parties—to manage their own internal affairs,” stated Cortland Putbrese, the lead partner on this case. In addition to Mr. Putbrese, DBL lawyers Kevin Streit and Erick Poorbaugh assisted on this matter.

Dunlap Bennett & Ludwig is a leading comprehensive legal advisor to national and global businesses, entrepreneurs, and executives and their families with 16 offices nationwide, as well as Toronto, London and China. DBL was founded by US Army veterans and has over 70 attorneys licensed to practice in over 40 states.

What is the Value of a Mobile App for Business? Design Center Weighs In.

Design Center is known for creating mobile apps that offer the best user experience (UX) and, as a result, exceptional value for businesses.

Even though clients tend to have ambitious ideas about what to expect, more times than not, we end up over-delivering both in terms of the user experience and client-defined ROI.”

— Design Center President Ken Haus

MINNEAPOLIS, MN, U.S., December 12, 2018 / — Design Center is known for creating mobile apps that offer the best user experience (UX) and, as a result, exceptional value for businesses; including a continually expanding loyal roster of Fortune 500 clients and growing startups.

Design Center apps deliver ROI because the design team works closely with clients from the start to customize the way ROI is defined for each client, focusing on the specific ROI metrics that the client wants to achieve. This means developing features that lead to the optimal balance of user engagement and business goals.

Design Center starts by learning the client’s budget, using that to determine what they can accomplish both from a features/usability perspective and a return perspective. During the research process, Design Center determines which features the user will find valuable and will have the potential to directly achieve the client-defined ROI.

While there are multiple avenues for driving return, usability, in itself, is a primary one. In one instance IBM found that $20,700 spent on usability resulted in a $47,700 return on the first day; in another system, $68,000 spent on usability resulted in $6,800,000 return in the first year. A Forrester study showed that, on average, every dollar invested in UX yields 100 dollars in return. The study also concluded that companies investing in UX see a lower cost of customer acquisition, lower support cost, increased customer retention and increased market share.

Design Center examples include:

• An app designed to improve the engagement of more than 400 front-line retail shop employees increased engagement by 15%–ROI that the client described as “huge.”
• An app to support sales presentation that: delivers about 50% more leads per sales rep; shortens sales cycle times; increases close rates; elevates brand perception and decreases the need for sales rep training.
• A chemical company with a large distributor network that wanted to make their website more user friendly and informative. Among the ROI goals were to improve distributor satisfaction and reduce call center activity. Design Center’s solution accomplished both goals and then some.

Design Center President Ken Haus said, “How we measure ROI is as customized as the app itself. We take our cue from the client during the intensive brainstorming sessions at the beginning of the project. Even though clients tend to have ambitious ideas about what to expect, more times than not, we end up over-delivering both in terms of the user experience and client-defined ROI.”

In addition to a free consultation, Design Center also conducts Road Shows. These are no-cost onsite demos tailored to the needs of each prospect and presented at the prospect’s place of business—on their schedule.

During the presentation, Design Center’s world class designers, developers, and UX experts present digital solutions, including mobile apps, custom software and AR/VR. This is an excellent opportunity for prospects to “ask the expert” in person. Design Center team members bring their own equipment or coordinate with onsite staff to utilize theirs. For more information and to schedule a Road Show, visit Design Center’s dedicated Road Show webpage:

Founded in 1969, leading software designer and developer Design Center turns strategic insights into reality through app development, virtual reality solutions, custom software and more. Rooted in design and energized by digital, Design Center creates engaging, long-term solutions that streamline business and spark conversation. The company’s user-experience-focused approach to design, development and implementation produces solutions that deliver value and profitability for clients.

With the addition of family offices and wealthy accredited investors as LP’s and by doing so, more than doubling its initial fund size, BCF Ventures is now considered a full-fledged venture capital fund*.

Ultimately, we want our founders to become world leaders.”
