• Conservative Public-Interest Litigation in the Modern Era

    A number of conservative and libertarian organizations have engaged in litigation against regulatory overreach in the last three decades. Charles Murray even wrote a book, By the People, calling for a "Madison Fund" to expand the fight against the regulatory state. Does the election of the deregulatory Trump Administration moot these efforts, or is there more to be done? Will states such as California act to fill a perceived regulatory gap, and will litigation at the state level increase? How have and how should organizations adjust their strategy? What is the litigation agenda in the short- and long-run? --Mr. Theodore H. Frank, Senior Attorney, Director of the Center for Class Action Fairness, Competitive Enterprise Institute --Prof. Michael S. Greve, Professor of Law, Antonin Scalia L...

It doesn't take long as an estate, trust and elder financial abuse litigator for Los Angeles clients to see that estate wrongdoers peddle similar stories to justify their actions. And, if these fanciful stories are not challenged the stories won't be refuted. So how do estate or trust asset hunters engaged in wrongdoing tell their stories? They usually sound something like this: "My sister couldn't give a hoot about our dad. Our mom died over ten years ago and I've been the one to take care of dad for the last five years. It's lucky that I don't have a job, because if I did I wouldn't have been able to help him. He wanted me to live with him and his mind was clear as a bell. He might forget something on...

The tentative ruling on a motion will give you a glimpse into the relevant case law that will apply in your case, and may give you a sense of how the judge feels about your case in general. When you get a tentative ruling (which is usually posted on the Court's website), you should review the judge's legal case citation and arguments made either for or against you. Normally, I would look up the case law cited to see if it is "on all fours" as they say. If not, you may want to make objection in the form or oral argument at the hearing so that you can ...

http://www.thepeddyberglawfirm.com The rights, relationships and conduct of the people and business entities engaged in commerce are the focus of a branch of civil law commonly referred to as commercial litigation. A commercial litigation attorney must be well-versed in many areas of the law, including: - Contracts - Collections - Bankruptcy - Fraudulent transactions - Corporate formations and operations - Real estate - Torts - Mergers and acquisitions - Finance and banking - Employment and labor law - Evaluating the Problem and Formulating a Strategy Whether it is a new business just starting operations, or an older, established business, disputes involving other companies, consumers, government agencies or suppliers can be a drain on the resources of a company. A commercial litigation attorney is usually in the best position to evaluate the matter that is in dispute and formulate a plan to resolve it as quickly and efficiently as is feasible under the circumstances. Through training, education and experience, a commercial litigation attorney knows that litigation might not be the most efficient method for resolving a commercial dispute. Negotiation, mediation and arbitration are alternative methods of dispute resolution that can cut the time and expense usually associated with the litigation process. Depending upon the circumstances surrounding the matter in dispute, a skilled (and experienced) litigation attorney is prepared to take the case to trial in front of a judge or jury if other methods of resolving the dispute fail. Avoiding Disputes A commercial litigation attorney can help a business to avoid conflicts through a review of a company’s policies, procedures, documents and practices. Frequently, a business that is plagued by conflicts involving employees might benefit from having an attorney prepare employment agreements and manuals containing rules, practices, and procedures for employees. Written agreements and rules help to avoid areas of conflict while, at the same time, providing business owners with documentary evidence to use in court if a dispute arises that cannot be resolved without litigation. Diverse Areas of Commercial Litigation Commercial litigation can encompass a wide-ranging and diverse variety of issues and business practices that are common in today’s world of international commerce. Some areas in which attorneys can help a business include: - Structuring financing and agreements for the acquisition of buildings and equipment - Overseeing mergers and acquisitions from their early stages through conclusion - Developing policies and procedures involving employees - Helping the company to remain in compliance with government regulatory agencies The Peddy Berg Law Firm, PLLC 8655 E.

There is an African saying that "If the lion does not tell his story, the hunter will." It doesn't take long as an estate, trust and elder financial abuse litigator for Los Angeles clients to see that estate wrongdoers peddle similar stories to justify their actions. And, if these fanciful stories are not challenged the stories won't be refuted. So how do estate or trust asset hunters engaged in wrongdoing tell their stories? They usually sound something like this: "My sister couldn't give a hoot about our dad. Our mom died over ten years ago and I've been the one to take care of dad for the last five years. It's lucky that I don't have a job, because if I did I wouldn't have been able to help him. He wanted me to live with him and his mind was clear as a bell. He might forget something once in a while, but I can tell you that he knew what he wanted. He didn't want to talk to my sister, so I cut her off from the phone, and whenever she did see him, I stayed with him so she wouldn't upset him or take his money. Dad wanted me to stay in the house and to have money to live on. So we put his money in joint accounts for us because he trusted me that I would take care of the bills. He gave me the house, and he didn't want my sister or her delinquent kids to have anything. My sister wouldn't even visit him or drive the 300 miles from San Jose to LA to be with him." OK - does this story sound at all familiar? I hear lots of stories, so I must say I've heard different versions of this one dozens of times. Now if the lion doesn't tell her story, the hunter's story of care and heroics will prevail. And the results of the hunter's story - the sister is cut out of the will or trust and the brother takes everything. We represent the lion far more than the hunter. And what is the lion's common story? "My brother hasn't worked in 20 years. I live in San Jose with my three children. We moved to San Jose over 20 years ago because of my husband's job. My parents continued to live in LA. We regularly visited my parents, and I spoke with my mom and my dad at least three or so days a week by telephone. When my mom died, I asked my dad to come live with us. He was so lonely, and I knew that we could care for him. He thought about it, but he didn't want to leave his home and friends in LA. He also felt responsible for my brother. My brother is an alcoholic, and my dad and my mom when she was alive had to bail him out of many problems... Read more:

[2017] UKSC 78 UKSC 2016/0174 O'Connor (Appellant) v Bar Standards Board (Respondent) On appeal from the Court of Appeal Civil Division (England and Wales) The issues in this case are: Where a person claims that a prosecution has been brought in breach of her human rights, does the time limit for bringing proceedings under the Human Rights Act 1998 run from the date of her acquittal or conviction or the date on which any appeals are concluded? Whether the High Court judge was correct to conclude, for the purposes of the summary judgment application, that the appellant’s claim of indirect discrimination contrary to arts.6 and 14 ECHR had a real prospect of success. The appellant invites the Court to reject consideration of this issue on the basis that the High Court has already decided that summary judgment is inappropriate, and that is of itself a compelling reason for the case to go to trial. The respondent seeks permission to adduce fresh evidence on this issue. The appellant is a black practising barrister. On 28 September 2009 the respondent, the Bar Standards Board, received a complaint that she had engaged in the unauthorised conduct of litigation contrary to the Bar Code of Conduct. As a result of the complaint, disciplinary proceedings were brought and charges were referred to the Disciplinary Tribunal. On 23 May 2011 five disciplinary charges were found proven by the Tribunal and the appellant was advised as to her future conduct. She appealed to the Visitors to the Inns of Court, which on 17 August 2012 allowed her appeal on all counts. On 21 February 2013, the appellant issued her current claim against the respondent. Deputy Master Eyre of the High Court struck out her claim, finding that they had no prospect of success and, in any case, her heads of claim under the Human Rights Act 1998 were brought outside of the one-year time limit in s.7 of the Act and no application had been made for an extension of time. The Deputy Master’s decision was appealed to the High Court. In the High Court, Warby J held that the appellant’s claim for indirect discrimination in terms of art.14 ECHR was adequately pleaded and sustainable for the purposes of a summary judgment but upheld the Deputy Master’s decision that the claim was time barred under s.7 of the Human Rights Act. The Court of Appeal upheld the decision of Warby J on time bar and dismissed the appeal. The Supreme Court unanimously allows the appeal. The appellant commenced the present proceedings within the period of one year beginning with the date on which the act complained of took place, as required by section 7(5)(a) of the Human Rights Act 1998.

The tax body sought the services of Curtis, Mallet- Prevost a UK based firm to help the URA legal team defend Uganda in five cases of tax arbitration over oil disputes in Ugandan courts. The MPs wondered why the tax authority engaged the external lawyers abroad and at home yet they had a team of in-house lawyers backed by others from the Attorney General’s chambers.

Johnny Depp’s estranged wife, Amber Heard, has now released text messages between herself and Depp’s assistant to prove Depp engaged in a pattern of physical abuse against her. We discuss the text messages and what Heard stands to gain in spousal support with defense attorney Mike Cavalluzzi. We also take a look at the conviction of “The Shield” actor, Michael Jace who was convicted of second degree murder in the shooting death of his wife in front of the couple’s two young sons, as well as the controversial arrest of a Bronx cabbie who killed a man for trying to rape his wife. We take a closer look at Canadian real estate heir, Blake Leibel’s insanity plea and whether or not the DA will ask for the death penalty? Lastly, we’ll delve into whether child pornography charges are appropriate when a 14-year-old boy films a sex act and distributes that video in a middle school to his friends in this episode of Crime Time hosted by Allison Hope Weiner. GUEST BIO: Michael "Mike" Cavalluzzi is one of the best criminal defense attorneys in Los Angeles County. He has been described by judges and prosecutors as aggressive, uncompromising, and relentless in his pursuit of justice for his clients. Having defended clients in courts throughout Los Angeles, Ventura, and Orange Counties, Mike Cavalluzzi has cemented a reputation as a top trial attorney. Michael Cavalluzzi began his legal career in 1992 as a civil litigator for State Farm Insurance, the largest insurance company in the United States. After winning several jury trials, Mr. Cavalluzzi decided to leave State Farm and focus on the practice of criminal defense. He joined the Public Defender's Office and quickly established himself as a fearless, creative trial attorney, defending clients in all types of cases, ranging from misdemeanor battery to homicide. Mr. Cavalluzzi is also actively involved in civil litigation, successfully representing a number of personal injury cases.

http://www.VondranLegal.com Attorney Steve, the business and real estate lawyer, explains the significance of a judges "tentative ruling" when you are engaged in law and motion practice in state or federal courts in California or Arizona. The tentative ruling on a motion will give you a glimpse into the relevant case law that will apply in your case, and may give you a sense of how the judge feels about your case in general. When you get a tentative ruling (which is usually posted on the Court's website), you should review the judge's legal case citation and arguments made either for or against you. Normally, I would look up the case law cited to see if it is "on all fours" as they say. If not, you may want to make objection in the form or oral argument at the hearing so that you can make your position be known. Be prepared to discuss the case law that applies and have a firm grasp of the facts of your case. If you have no objections to the findings of the court, the litigants, either the Plaintiff or Defendant can fee free to "submit on the tentative" or argue one or more points or one or more causes of action (for example in demurrer in state court or a motion to dismiss in federal court).

VLF business attorneys explain how the litigation process works in the state of Texas and provide helpful tips to minimize your costs. Joseph: Today we’re going to be discussing the litigation process. And our focus is two-fold, first to educate you on the process itself and second, give you helpful tips that will minimize your cost during the litigation process. What’s the first step in litigation? David: Joseph, prior to filing the lawsuit, we’ll conduct a pre-investigation. That’s where we’ll go out and we’ll interview potential parties and witnesses. We’ll gather relevant documents and we’ll explore potential claims and defenses for our clients. Joseph: Once you’ve completed that pre-suit investigation, what’s the next step? David: The next step, Joseph, is actually the lawsuit. In Texas, we call that a petition. On the other side, if a lawsuit has already been filed against our clients, we’ll file what’s known as an “answer”. Joseph: Once you got either the answer or the petition on file, what’s going to be the next step? David: The next step is the fact find view stage. We call that the discovery stage here in Texas and that’s where we’ll produce documents that are relevant to our claims and defences to the other side. And the other side will do the exact same thing. Again, the purpose of discovery is to get all the evidence that we intend to rely on in support of our claims or defences, get that open so that the case can be decided on the merits. Joseph: After we’ve conducted what’s called “written discovery”, exchange documents and writings, the parties will have the opportunity to take what we call depositions. Now, a deposition is a chance to interview a witness under oath in front of court reporter. Testimonies solicited at a deposition is just as good as testimony presented in a trial, in front of a judge or a jury. David: So, Joseph, the discovery stage has been completed. What can our clients expect prior to trial? Joseph: Once you’ve completed written discovery and deposition, each party has the chance to file what’s called a dispositive motion or a motion for summary judgement. That’s a chance for the parties to apply the facts they’ve gathered to the law and ask the judge to make a ruling in their favour. This can be partial or a full summary judgement motion. If granted, that will dispose of the entire case. David: And then, I would imagine that the next step will be trials. Is that correct? Joseph: Exactly. This is what people confuse with the litigation process as a whole. Trials are a chance, as you see on TV, you go before a judge if it’s a bench trial or a judge and a jury if it’s a jury trial. Each side presents its evidence, makes it arguments to the judge and ultimately, the judge or the jury will make fact findings that will end the matter. We talked about the process, we understand the process, what are some helpful tips or hints that people that are worried about having been sued or looking to file a suit can use to minimize cost? David: Joseph, there’s a couple of suggestions, first and foremost, we always advice our clients to be actively engaged in the process. The client that is actively engaged can absolutely minimize their cost. Another couple practical steps that they can take is prior to the lawsuit actually being filed, we always recommend that our clients gather important documents. Any documents or evidence that we believe are going to be relevant to the case, gather those documents up. Number two, put together a list of potential witnesses and parties for the suite. And then, after the lawsuit has been filed and during discovery, we always advice our clients to speak with individuals and employees at their companies and make sure that they preserve documents and evidence that are going to be used in the case. Remember, a party that does not preserve documents and rather destroys evidence can be sanctioned by a court. That can involve anything from having to pay the other side’s attorney’s fees all the way to having your pleadings struck by the court. So, it’s a very serious matter. Joseph: David, if your pleadings are struck, that would mean you essentially lose your lawsuit. Is that correct? David: Absolutely. So, we’ve talked a little bit about the litigation process. We’ve also touched on some tips. What really can our clients expect throughout the litigation process? Joseph: There are several things, David. Litigation is expensive. It’s time consuming. It’s constantly changing on a case-by-case basis. And so, as you mentioned, clients need to be actively involved in their case because strategies at the beginning of the trial change at the end over the course of a few days. Strategies at the beginning of a lawsuit change as discovery is revealed.

eMerit - What Every Doctor Needs to Know Before Litigation. Visit us online for more information: http://www.emerit.biz or call 855-4-eMerit. eMerit has helped hundreds of doctors diffuse conflict due to negative patient reviews or even fake reviews. We often get the question about doctor's rights and what they can do when an accusation harms their reputation. Founder and CEO of eMerit, Jeff Segal, MD, JD, FACS explains what often happens if you take a patient to court, what happened to a real doctor even after he won the case, and what he always tells doctors before they go down this rocky path. Video transcript: We're often asked, should I sue, and litigation is a commitment. Once you commit to litigation, you will often be consumed by the process. So the first question to ask is "why are you doing this?" You're pissed, I get that but is it worth engaging in an expensive, lengthy, capricious process. Perhaps you win? You may be part of the unusual group that actually prevails but what is it that you won? There probably are easier ways to manage conflict and at eMerit, our philosophy is find the easiest way to manage a conflict to prevent escalation. And litigation, to me and hopefully to most people should be the last resort, not the knee-jerk reflex. Let me give an example. A number of years ago, and I do mean a number of years ago, a patient was pretty unhappy with her outcome and listening to her story, she just wanted a refund for the work that was done. And the doctor, I think, did a revision procedure. The patient wasn't happy. And this escalated into a back-and-forth on the Internet. And it escalated into a back-and-forth with the board of medicine. This was a mess. And the doctor, perhaps appropriately, felt as if he had no other alternative. But instead of just giving the patient her money back, which may have still been an option, I don't know, he sued her. Now, he won. $12 million judgement. $12 million dollars from a jury. I mean this is a whopping amount of money. Of course the patient didn't have it, she filed for bankruptcy but the story doesn't end there. She appealed the case and years later, the Arizona appellate court overruled that judgement and said that you've got to start all over again. So, he may be able to go one more round and prevail but after more than five years, I would argue that both sides are probably exhausted. I think each side forgot about what they were fighting about. In my mind, it's like two bald men fighting over a comb. They're only thinking about victory and not why they're actually engaged in the fight. In short, litigation is a strategy. It's a strategy that should be used sparingly and infrequently.

http://www.prendos.co.nz/dispute-resolution Richard Maiden, Director, Chartered Surveyor and Chartered Arbitrator, briefly talks about recovering costs from disputes. There are various ways of recovering money under any dispute in New Zealand. If the disputes are less than $15,000 the better process would be to go to a disputes tribunal, lodge a claim and be heard at the tribunal, legal representation is not permitted at the disputes tribunal. Legal support and adjudication costs are also not claimable except under special circumstances i.e. acting in bad faith or claims made without merit. As the next step up from a disputes tribunal for settling construction contract disputes, adjudication is recommended. You can also lodge a claim at district court or if the claim exceeds $200,000, at the high court. In those cases, timing of resolution takes much longer and there is a reliance on legal expertise to present the case. Lastly, mediation is often the best way to go. Prendos does not offer mediation; however we do offer expert evidence and expert advice to clients who are engaged in any litigation process.

Financial Mis-selling IMPORTANT NEWS ON BRINGING CLAIMS FOR ADDITIONAL REFUNDS ON THE BASIS THAT (IN CERTAIN CASES ONLY) THE BANK SHOULD HAVE PAID COMPOUND INTEREST AND NOT SIMPLE 8% INTEREST ON PPI AWARDS This last 10 days has been incredibly busy as I have been engaged with 4 hearings and trials all packed into the same period dealing with the issue of bringing new PPI claims for an additional refund because the consumer thought that he has not been paid enough in the original offer. Here I deal with 2 judgments in two of our cases and I also touch on 2 cases that we settled on a “drop-hands” basis. I discuss the most important thing to come out of the two judgments (both county court district judges so not a high court but very interesting and revealing of what judge’s may do) on the issues of: 1. Causation and the importance of actually proving not just that the consumer had compound interest losses but that the bank’s actions caused them or contributed to them. 2. You still need to fully particularise a claim even where a bank has made an “admission” in their original offer of redress. So you may have to prove the mis-sale all over again. 3. Judge’s may not take kindly to a consumer who wants a second bite at the cherry. So even where the bank has not made the consumer sign in full and final settlement in respect of the original refund a judge may still find against a consumer, simply because they do not like the idea of a consumer coming back for more like Oliver Twist. But the converse may also apply where a consumer has signed a full and final settlement form but was under pressure to do so or felt obliged to do so and was in a weak bargaining position. 4. The Unfair Relationships Test (Consumer Credit Act 1974 as amended) is an incredibly powerful tool in the hands of consumers and the banks are right to be afraid. Compound interest can be claimed but the courts are a long way from routinely awarding it, preferring instead to fall back on simple 8% if at all possible, unless you have good proof of the contrary. In time this may change but probably not for a few years.
