It is just so sad that the well organized and well financed lawyer’s lobby does not consent the idea that no fault insurance plans are established in California to Rhode Island. 100,000 was spent by the trial lawyers which resulted to an unsuccessful lobbying effort to kill the bill. The no fault proposal was then proclaimed as a law wherein afterwards, the Illinois Trial Lawyers Association filed a suit. The law has been recently declared unlawful by the State Supreme Court because it doesn’t include the welfare of some groups of accident victims. The pending no fault bills do a terrible thing, based on the argument of the group of lawyers in Arkansas and California because this refrain people from bringing their problems in the court. A pending bill was attacked by the state Trial Lawyers Association in New York wherein they said that this bill does not allow civil rights such as to sue and also it prevents lawsuits from recovering damages for injuries.
The individuals who do not share the same perspective as the trial lawyers do are beginning to come about. This opposition team is preparing to introduce in Congress a Federal Automobile Insurance Reform Act which would protect the tort damage lawsuit right, a more extreme ‘no fault’ that supporters want to remove. What the trial lawyers’ bill has is that it owns their customized no fault provision. What the new Federal government corporation will do is to provide auto accident victims with the rightful compensation taken from the national gasoline tax. All of them would receive something whether they were guilty or innocent or whether they were insured or not. The court would deduct the amount collected from the government although the right to sue and collect from the guilty driver would be preserved. Definitely, rates would go down for injury liability insurance because it has been subsidized by the government. There is a possibility that with the given subsidy by the government, most states would then require this. 3,000 or more per person. The payments given to the victims will compose 90 percent of all personal injury claims that includes hospital expenses, medical care and income loss. Victims will receive immediate payments except those who have committed a crime against the law, those who drive drunk and are under the influence of drugs and those who drive without license. The Trial Lawyer’s bill provides a competition for private insurance companies because what it basically does is to give the government a right to sell policies. With this, the Government Company would then be allowed to sell personal injury liability insurance. Yet, motorists are still responsible for paying such coverage just like what they do now.
Eighty-five percent of Chicagoans “believe county or city political corruption is at least somewhat common” — and a staggering 55% believe local corruption to be very common. Nearly 30% (29.5%) of Chicagoans think that local corruption has an impact on our daily lives, while an equal number believe that local corruption has “a good amount” of impact on our daily activity. Another 31.5% of Chicagoans believe that local corruption has some, although not much, impact on daily life. It is this toxic environment in which lawyers and judges function in Cook County. Read Second City Cop sometime. It is easy to affect an attitude of brittle, knowing cynicism in this climate, to let on that we know the game is rigged, the players juiced, the outcomes preordained. Justice Hyman is right, of course. But public confidence will not be restored simply because we lawyers refrain from personal criticisms of judges. Nor is it enough to be ‘civil’ to one another, as the Supreme Court (rightly) encourages us. Illinois (and particularly Cook County) lawyers have to deal with — and work to reverse — the public’s negative perceptions. We can’t do that wearing blinders or rose-colored glasses; we have to begin by being proudly beyond reproach ourselves and intolerant of sloth and corruption in the system we serve. We have to become reformers ourselves; we have to become goo-goos. We have to help fix our broken system, changing perceptions by changing reality. We just have to factually illuminate how things work, and how things are supposed to work, to our clients, to our friends, to our neighbors; that alone will bring positive change.
Brentwood Academy lawyers want the Tennessee Supreme Court to agree with a Williamson County judge and end a controversial lawsuit against the school. Attorneys for the prestigious Christian school on Monday filed an application to appeal an order handed down by the Court of Appeals in February. That filing included a motion asking the Supreme Court to seal the application for permission to appeal, according to Barbara Peck, communications director for the Tennessee Administrative Office of the Courts. The Supreme Court granted the motion to seal the application, but has not yet decided whether it will hear the appeal, Peck said. The Tennessee Court of Appeals agreed with the plaintiffs, and reversed Johnson’s ruling in February. Now, the school’s attorneys are attempting to appeal the appellate court’s decision to the Supreme Court — the state’s court of last resort. Nashville attorney Mark Chalos. Attorneys for Brentwood Academy didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. In August 2017, John Doe filed a lawsuit through his mother Jane Doe against the Williamson County school, administrators and four students. The lawsuit accuses students during the 2014-15 school year of blocking locker room doors and holding down John Doe, then a 12-year-old boy, while another student repeatedly sexually assaulted Doe. The lawsuit also accuses school administrators of not doing enough to prevent or appropriately respond to the alleged attacks. Brentwood Academy and the accused boys have all denied wrongdoing. In December, the Brentwood Police Department announced it had concluded a more than three-year investigation and would not file criminal charges.
Some key problems with the Supreme Court judgement in Namit Sharma vs. Thus there will no selection. All Chief Justices of High Courts will have one guaranteed job. 2. The judgement states it is applicable ‘henceforth’. This has resulted in 28.5% State Commissions,- including Maharashtra,- to suspend their operations. This could continue for another three to five months atleast. The adjudication on a matter concerning the fundamental right of Citizens has been suspended suddenly, -without any urgent reason,-and all these Commissions are on a holiday wasting the money of the poorest citizen who may be starving to death. 3. Whereas the RTI Act provided for eleven Commissioners who could hear cases in 11 benches, the judgement reduces these to a maximum of five benches, since there have to be two member in every bench. Retired High Court judges will be difficult to find and this may result in the Information Commissions going into a dormant state.
Besides judges are likely to bring their habits with them resulting in adjournments and legal finesse which will become ideal for lawyers. This will take away the simple manner in which ordinary citizens are able to deal with the Commissions. 4. If the maximum number of benches per Commission is 5 it is unlikely that they will clear over 3000 cases per bench, ie. 15000 cases per Commission annually. The Central Commission, Maharashtra Commission and the UP Commission get much over 20000 cases each year and this is growing. A simple projection shows that in these and many other Commissions the pending cases will become over five years in the next five years. The ‘aam admi’ in whose name we profess to act will no longer use RTI, just as he has gone away from the Consumer forums, judiciary and many other forums. In that event the potential of RTI to change the face of Indian democracy will be lost.
This will result in the pressure on public servants to respond to RTI queries being reduced considerably. 5. Internationally over 90 countries have access laws now. Over 35 of them have Information Commissions. None of them have a requirement of having ‘judicial members’. Most of them do not have a requirement of multiple member benches. 6. In India many quasi-judicial bodies are in existence without ‘judicial members’. 7. The Court has talked of legal interpretations and third party issues to order the requirement of retired judges. A study done by legal interns with me of the Central Commission’s decisions for the period January to April 2012 (attached) shows that any legal interpretation is involved only in about 15% of the cases. Is it right that two member benches should be adjudicating all the matters? Even in the High Court many matters are heard by single judges. Does it appear right that there should be two senior citizens adjudicating all RTI matters? There is a very strong possibility that RTI Commissions will become irrelevant for most citizens, and this will have a serious deleterious impact on the exercise of this fundamental right. 8. The judgement has made decisions which should really be in the jurisdiction of Parliament and the executive. If judiciary takes these decisions, the division of power envisaged in the Constitution is unbalanced and this gives no opportunity to Citizens to discuss and debate such matters. 9. Citizens must discuss this judgement and request the Supreme Court to apply its mind to this, since it is likely seriously impinge on the fundamental right of Citizens which Citizens have given to themselves thorough their representatives in Parliament.

Every member of Congress, every elected official, and most Federal employees have to swear an oath before taking office. That oath requires them to swear to uphold and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Every single Democrat who wants to eliminate or circumvent any portion of the Constitution without going through the proper amendment process as established BY the Constitution is by definition a liar, and an enemy of the state. They have used the Supreme Court to effect the changes they could not get through legislation, and now that power is threatened by the elevation of Judge Kavanaugh to associate justice. If Trump is able to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg with the Senate solidly in the control of Republicans, the Left will come completely unglued, I think. Those on the Left have repeatedly bemoaned the fact that the Constitution stands in the way of the “Progress” they are pushing – the Electoral College, for instance, Article II, Section 1, Clause 3. Want to abolish it? Progressives are the only ones to ensure there is no going back to business as usual. The cooperation between our parties has intensified significantly in the last two-and-a-half years, with regular contact at Congress, Senate, Party and Foundation levels. Efforts have been remarkable on both sides. The attendance of both President Clinton and myself at the Global Progressive Forum World Conference in Brussels in 2009 I think is eloquent and proves this point very well.
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled peer-to-peer sites such as Grokster, Kazaa and Morpheus can be held responsible for copyright infringement by their users. In a rare 9-0 decision in favor of Plaintiff MGM, the Justices held that a business distributing technology with the active intent of promoting copyright violations could not escape liability for subsequent copyright infringements. Although unanimous, the ruling is a strained effort to isolate file sharing from other industries. In arguing their position, Grokster had relied on previous rulings regarding VHS technology. In a 1984 case, the Supreme Court ruled the makers of VHS recorders could not be held liable for copyright piracy by users of the machines. The Court specifically ruled that VHS and any other technology with “substantially non-infringing uses” could not be held responsible if individuals illegally taped movies or shows off of television. Indeed, lower courts had ruled in favor of Grokster using the VHS ruling as precedent. So, what’s the difference between the two technologies? In a somewhat tortured reasoning, the Justices distinguished the two cases by focusing on the “intent” of the companies.
If a company distributes a technology with the intent that it be used by third parties for copyright infringement, then it is responsible. The entertainment industry is trumpeting the end of file sharing. This ruling is no such thing. To understand the impact of the ruling, a brief discussion of legal procedure is necessary. The Supreme Court decision does not find Grokster liable for anything. Instead, it simply reverses a lower court ruling that Grokster could not possibly be found liable. As a result, the case will return to the trial court and eventually go to trial. In the trial, the Plaintiff will have to prove that Grokster distributed file-sharing software with the intent that it be used for copyright infringement. Proving such a case will not be easy since intent is a vague concept. The decision of the Supreme Court provides the entertainment industry with a basis for pursuing file sharing companies. Is file sharing at an end?
Click here for 12th Subcircuit roundup post. Since the linked roundup post appeared, I’ve received an email from Republican candidate Laura J. Morask responding to the new, harsh evaluation of her candidacy issued by the Chicago Council of Lawyers for the general election. The Council initially found Morask “not recommended” because she did not participate in the Alliance of Bar Associations screening process. Morask has said that she could not comply with the tight Alliance screening deadline because of a planned family vacation. But the new evaluation suggested that Morask had an ulterior motive for ducking the Council evaluation, namely, trying to avoid calling attention to past accusations of prosecutorial misconduct. From Morask’s email:I am dumbfounded that the Chicago Council of Lawyers would be so dishonest and misleading to the voting public as to print their “conspiracy theory” as to why I did not participate in their ratings. People v. SanAntone Moss-prosecuted in October 1998-jury convicted, sentenced to death for multiple murder, Govenor Ryan communted in Mass Commutations. People v. Roy Fluker-prosecuted in December 1998-Conviction and sentenced to 35 yrs. People v. Evan Griffith-prosecuted in June, 2001, sentenced to life for second murder. It is dumbfounding to me that the Council of Lawyers violated their oath as responsible lawyers and citizens by printing what they did. Mr. Devine and every single judge involved in any of these cases will and has vouched for me repeatedly to the bar associations that are the major peer reviewed bars-the CBA, and NWSBA. The Alliance has demonstrated on prior occasions their agenda as a mere glance at their application reflects a bias that is not appropriate for judicial candidates. Unlike my opponent I have sat on the judicial evaluation and investigation committees of many of the Alliance and the CBA.
