Good evening, Baltimore...

There are a variety of reports on a customer being beaten at a McDonalds in Rosedale, Maryland, near Baltimore, on April 18, 2011 around 8pm. Various internet postings put different "spins" on the incident. One, at SFGate, brings up the issue of the vanishing internet post:
his since removed Facebook page. Of patent relevance, one recalls the story of US 7,910,531 , wherein the examiner apparently credited a factually incorrect posting on the internet. And, how will the patent office handle removed, or altered, internet postings?

Of the incident at the McDonalds:

Monsters & Critics: Maryland woman beaten to seizure by two women in McDonalds

CBS: Video Shows Woman Being Beaten At Baltimore Co. McDonald’s

ABC: Equality Maryland: McDonalds beating is a hate crime

As a sidelight on legal professional ethics, note the remark from TMR : I am sure the two girls have already been called by attorneys willing to take the case pro bono, trying to make a name.
