Steve Yerrid is one of this country's best lawyers, just listen to how crisp and detailed his argument is....and if you think he's good just watch the way Judge Nelly Khouzam drives deep into complex facts...it's just amazing how precisely these legal titans treat the facts. This is one argument that really warrants listening to it over and over....Yerrid offers many lessons in this appeal...chief among them, "Judge, I've learned in my legal career to listen carefully." The improprieties were so pervasive in the opinion of the presiding trial judge that she verbalized her concerns on the record, resulting in defense counsel's successful recusal of her before she could rule on the motion for new trial. We conclude that under the extraordinary circumstances of this case, the successor judge should have granted the motion for new trial. The trial was extraordinary in that I cleared the courtroom twice. Come February of next year, I will have been on the bench 20 years․ I[ ] have been a member of the bar since June, 1976. Even as a prosecutor, even in conversations with my colleagues, I can't think of running into a scenario where because of the conduct, not of the litigants, not of the litigants, but the conduct of counsel-and to be clear, it was Mr. Josepher's conduct, that ha [s] risen to the level of causing me grave concern as to the fairness of this trial․ Again, this trial was extraordinary, not because it was a medical mal, not because unfortunately, it was a baby that died. It was extraordinary because of the amount of time that was dedicated to managing the defense's behavior․ The child's death was caused by an invasive, flesh-eating, group A streptococcus bacterial infection See more at: http://caselaw.findlaw.com/fl-district-court-of-appeal/1524889.html#sthash.FzN9MZO8.dpuf Weidner Law Appeal Video This oral argument video is on the case: 2D13-3466 Weidner Law represents individuals in legal actions and provides within a wide range of legal actions.

Full presentation at http://cfsblog.com/ondemand On March 11, 2014 the Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals found that a settlement letter seeking payment of a debt subject to an expired statute of limitations can state a claim for violation of the FDCPA. The Seventh Circuit's decision is contrary to decisions from the Third and Eighth Circuit Courts of Appeals. Don Maurice, Joann Needleman and Tom Dominczyk will discuss the Seventh Circuit's opinion, as well as the state of FDCPA law from other circuits on time barred debt collection, other law (such as Section 5 of the FTC Act) impacting this space and the regulatory actions taken by the CFPB, FTC and others concerning time barred debt. The panelists will share their experiences in litigating claims concerning collection of time barred debt and offer resources to assist your compliance efforts.

Welcome to Employment Law This Week! Subscribe to our channel for new episodes every Monday! This week’s stories include... (1) Two Key ACA Provisions Extended - http://bit.ly/1OU2471 Over the holidays, the U.S. government and federal agencies announced deadline extensions for two significant Affordable Care Act (ACA) provisions. Information reporting deadlines for the tax year 2015 have been extended by several months, and the effective date for the so-called “Cadillac Tax,” a 40 percent excise tax on high-cost health plans, has been delayed until January 1, 2020. Michelle Capezza from Epstein Becker Green explains how the delay in the Cadillac Tax will affect employers. Click here for more information - http://bit.ly/1RTOzoJ (2) ADA “Safe Harbor” Provision Protects Employer from EEOC Complaint - http://bit.ly/235fYtg A judge in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit ruled that Wisconsin plastics maker Flambeau did not violate protections under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) with its wellness exam and questionnaire. The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) brought the claim because the company required employees to take the exam to enroll in health coverage. The ADA normally prohibits mandatory medical exams unless they are job-related. In this case, employees were not at risk of losing their jobs if they did not participate in the program. The judge, relying on the Eleventh Circuit’s decision in Seff v. Broward County, ruled that, because the information gathered during the exam was used to establish and administer the company’s bona fide benefit plan, it fell under the ADA's "safe harbor" exception. Click here for more on Seff and the ADA’s safe harbor provision - http://bit.ly/1NbJL7K (3) Paid Leave Does Not Equal Termination - http://bit.ly/1ZBAQcj The EEOC charged that a San Jose bakery violated an injunction against firing an employee when it placed her on paid leave. The employee is currently involved in a worker discrimination suit against the bakery, alleging that she was treated differently because of her Mexican heritage. A federal judge in California rejected the EEOC’s argument, ruling that the injunction was not violated because paid leave is not equivalent to a firing. (4) No “Mass” Layoff for WARN Act Action - http://bit.ly/1U0X5l9 A group of employees fired from Vanderbilt University Medical Center in July 2013 brought a mass layoff claim under the Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification (WARN) Act. The group was too small to qualify for WARN, so the employees relied on the aggregation provision, which allows groups of employees fired within 90 days of each other to combine for the action. The second group received notice of their layoffs in September 2013, which falls within the 90-day threshold, but since that second group was on the payroll until November of that year, the Sixth Circuit said the employment relationship did not end until then, and so the WARN Act did not apply in this case.

Donald Moynihan, director and professor, La Follette School of Public Affairs at University of Wisconsin-Madison, will preview his new book, Hassles or Help: Compliance, Learning and Psychological Costs in the Administrative State. This talk develops the concept of administrative burden as an important variable in understanding how citizens experience the state. Administrative burden is conceptualized as a function of learning, psychological, and compliance costs in citizen-state interactions. Such burdens have a material effect on whether, and how, individuals receive public services, and in many cases are a function of deliberate political choice. The opaque nature of administrative burdens may facilitate their use as forms of "hidden politics," where significant policy changes occur without broad political consideration. A variety of examples are used to establish a research agenda for administrative burdens in the field of public affairs. Moynihan is former co-editor of Journal of Public Administration Research and Theory and Public Administration Review and is president of the Public Management Research Association. In 2011, he was elected to the National Academy of Public Administration. A native of Ireland, Moynihan completed his bachelor of arts degree in public administration at the University of Limerick, and his master's and Ph.D. in public administration from the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs at Syracuse University.

Given that everyone is getting older and more prone to disease, medical innovation is one of the most important measures, if not the most important measure, of a successful health policy. Technological acceleration, including advances in genomics and stem cell research, suggest that we are on the cusp of a golden age of medical innovation. But government-imposed price controls and other policies can reduce the incentives for devising new treatments, resulting in preventable death and illness.

This session will include updates on current EFF issues such as surveillance online and fighting efforts to use intellectual property claims to shut down free speech and halt innovation, discussion of our technology project to protect privacy and speech online, updates on cases and legislation affecting security research, and much more. Half the session will be given over to question-and-answer, so it's your chance to ask EFF questions about the law and technology issues that are important to you. Kurt Opsahl (@kurtopsahl)(@eff) is a Senior Staff Attorney with the Electronic Frontier Foundation focusing on civil liberties, free speech and privacy law. Opsahl has counseled numerous computer security researchers on their rights to conduct and discuss research. Before joining EFF, Opsahl worked at Perkins Coie, where he represented technology clients with respect to intellectual property, privacy, defamation, and other online liability matters, including working on Kelly v. Arribasoft, MGM v. Grokster and CoStar v. LoopNet. Prior to Perkins, Opsahl was a research fellow to Professor Pamela Samuelson at the U.C. Berkeley School of Information Management & Systems. Opsahl received his law degree from Boalt Hall, and undergraduate degree from U.C. Santa Cruz. Opsahl co-authored "Electronic Media and Privacy Law Handbook". In 2007, Opsahl was named as one of the 'Attorneys of the Year' by California Lawyer magazine for his work on the O'Grady v. Superior Court appeal, which established the reporter's privilege for online journalists. Marcia Hoffmann is an EFF Fellow. Now in private practice, Marcia was previously a senior staff attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, where she focuses on computer crime and security, electronic privacy, free expression, and other digital civil liberties issues. Prior to joining EFF, Marcia was staff counsel and director of the Open Government Project at the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC). Dan Auerbach is a Staff Technologist who is passionate about defending civil liberties and encouraging government transparency. Coming to EFF with a background in mathematical logic and automated reasoning, as well as years of engineering experience at Google, Dan now works on EFF's various technical projects and helps lawyers, activists, and the public understand important technologies that might threaten the privacy or security of users. Eva Galperin is EFF's Global Policy Analyst, and has been instrumental in highlighting government malware designed to spy upon activists around the world. A lifelong geek, Eva misspent her youth working as a Systems Administrator all over Silicon Valley. Since then, she has seen the error of her ways and earned degrees in Political Science and International Relations from SFSU. She comes to EFF from the US-China Policy Institute, where she researched Chinese energy policy, helped to organize conferences, and attempted to make use of her rudimentary Mandarin skills. Mark Jaycox is a Policy Analyst and Legislative Assistant for EFF. His issues include user privacy, civil liberties, EULAs, and "cybersecurity" (online security). When not reading legal or legislative documents, Mark can be found reading non-legal and legislative documents, exploring the Bay Area, and riding his bike. He was educated at Reed College, spent a year abroad at the University of Oxford (Wadham College), and concentrated in History and Politics. The intersection of his concentration with advancing technologies and the law was prevalent throughout his education, and Mark's excited to apply these passions to EFF. Previous to joining EFF, Mark was a Contributor to ArsTechnica, and a Legislative Research Assistant for LexisNexis. Mitch Stoltz is a Staff Attorney at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, focusing on intellectual property. Before joining EFF, Mitch worked on copyright and antitrust litigation for high-tech clients at Constantine Cannon LLP in Washington DC.

Regulation can be a significant barrier to innovation, protecting incumbents and making it harder to bring new goods and services to market. Determining the appropriate regulation is all the more difficult when accelerating technology is creating many new opportunities as well as potential dangers. Can the administrative state itself innovate to promote beneficial innovation? Topics to be considered here will be the nature and scope of cost-benefit analysis, the use of experiments to guide regulation and prizes as an alternative to top-down regulation.

Citation Dorothy Landsberg recorded interview by Timothy Naftali, November 7, 2011, the Richard Nixon Oral History Project of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum. About the Richard Nixon Oral History Project The Richard Nixon Oral History Project was created in November 2006 at the initiative of Timothy Naftali, weeks after he had begun his tenure as director of what was then the Nixon Presidential Materials Staff at the National Archives and Records Administration. (The Nixon Presidential Materials Staff became the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum on July 11, 2007, with the incorporation of certain facilities in Yorba Linda, California, that formerly had been operated by the private Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace.) The project was intended to preserve the memories and reflections of former Nixon officials and others who had been prominent in the Nixon era by conducting videotaped interviews. Starting in February 2007, Paul Musgrave, Special Assistant to the Director, coordinated the project, which was housed in the Office of the Director. Naftali insisted from the project's inception that it be a serious, impartial and nonpartisan source of information about President Nixon, his administration, and his times. A second goal of the project was to provide public domain video that would be available as free historical content for museums and for posting on the Internet. Donors to the project neither requested nor received a veto over interview questions or interviewee selection. (Funding for interviews, materials, and support staff came in part from the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace Foundation, which ceased to support the project in 2007; in part from donations from Nixon administration alumni; and in part from the appropriated and self-generated funds of the Richard Nixon Presidential Library itself.) Accordingly, the project includes interviews with former staff members of the Nixon administration as well as journalists, politicians, and activists who may have been opposed to the Nixon administration and its policies. Taken as a whole, the collection contributes to a broader and more vivid portrait of President Nixon, the Nixon administration, and American society during the Nixon era. * * * * * For more information, please visit the Nixon Library at www.nixonlibrary.gov or contact us at 714-983-9120 or email@example.com * * * * * The appearance of any advertisements on this website does not constitute an endorsement of any product or service nor does it reflect any official position taken by the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum, the National Archives and Records Administration, or the United States Federal Government.
