22, seven of those marks were rejected , though public records do not indicate why. China granted preliminary approval for 38 marks on Feb. 27 and Mar. 6. Four applications are pending. Matthew Dresden, a China intellectual property attorney at Harris Bricken in Seattle, said the rejections suggested that the trademark office hadn't done Trump any special favors. "Some did not go through, that suggests it's just business as usual," he said. Dan Plane, a director at Simone IP Services, a Hong Kong intellectual property consultancy, said it would be difficult to draw firm conclusions without in-depth research. However, he said the efficiency of China's trademark office in handling Trump's caseload suggested favor for a man whose decisions could have a powerful impact on China. "For this many marks to all sail through to preliminary approval this quickly, with nary an issue in sight -- that is unheard of to me, and I have been doing this for 16 years," he said.

at p. 692.) Consequently, the trial court in this case had jurisdiction to entertain a motion under section 1054.9, and Morales sought to invoke that jurisdiction with the filing of his preservation motion. As noted, however, Morales has no habeas corpus counsel at present, and the filing of a motion seeking discovery under Penal Code section 1054.9 is outside the scope of appellate counsel's appointment; thus, when Morales may be in a position to file such a motion is unknown. In the meantime, some of the evidence to which he would be entitled may be at risk of being lost, which would render moot the trial court's power to grant discovery under Penal Code section 1054.9. Given the present statutory landscape, Morales contends the granting of a preservation motion falls within the trial court's inherent authority to carry out its Penal Code section 1054.9 postconviction discovery jurisdiction. He reasons an evidence preservation order is a necessary means by which to carry out the court's jurisdiction to issue postconviction discovery orders under Penal Code section 1054.9 and thus falls within the court's inherent power under Code of Civil Procedure section 187, which provides in relevant part that [w]hen jurisdiction is by any statute, conferred on a Court or judicial officer, all the means necessary to carry it into effect are also given; and in the exercise of this jurisdiction, if the course of proceeding be not specifically pointed out by this Code or the statute, any suitable process or mode of proceeding may be adopted which may appear most conformable to the spirit of this Code. Courts have exercised inherent powers in situations in which the rights and powers of the parties have been established by substantive law or court order but workable means by which those rights may be enforced or powers implemented have not been granted by statute. (Topa Ins. Co. v. Fireman's Fund Ins. Companies (1995) 39 Cal.App.4th 1331, 1344.) The Attorney General disputes this contention, arguing that the superior court lacks jurisdiction because Penal Code section 1054.9 does not explicitly authorize preservation San Diego,CA 92101 orders and does not confer a right to a fishing expedition. According to the Attorney General, a court's inherent power under Code of Civil Procedure section 187 is limited to fashioning procedural rules in the absence of an established procedure, and Penal Code section 1054.9 already establishes the procedure governing postconviction discovery.
