The judgment ended a three-day trial in the civil rights lawsuit by Catherine and Jerome Newkirk, who were pulled over for speeding by Trooper James Enzor in Florence County. The Newkirks alleged that the trooper had used excessive force in wrongfully arresting them. Both spent more than a day in jail, but neither was permanently injured. Much of their ordeal, though, was captured on the lawman’s in-car camera. “That was invaluable for the jury to see,” Joe McCulloch, an attorney for the Newkirks, said shortly after the jury’s finding was announced in ...

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.

** Subscribe for more: https://goo.gl/5clm0J ** A Charleston jury on Wednesday reached a $1.3 million verdict for a couple who said they were arrested because they accused a white state trooper of racial profiling during a 2012 traffic stop. The judgment ended a three-day trial in the civil rights lawsuit by Catherine and Jerome Newkirk, who were pulled over for speeding by Trooper James Enzor in Florence County. The Newkirks alleged that the trooper had used excessive force in wrongfully arresting them. Both spent more than a day in jail, but neither was permanently injured. Much of their ordeal, though, was captured on the lawman’s in-car camera. “That was invaluable for the jury to see,” Joe McCulloch, an attorney for the Newkirks, said shortly after the jury’s finding was announced in downtown U.S. District Court. “It was very persuasive. The jury was asked to send a message, and they did.” A request for comment from Enzor’s lawyer, Samuel Arthur III of Florence, was not immediately returned. The S.C. Department of Public Safety, the umbrella agency for the Highway Patrol, also was sued but settled with the Newkirks late last week for $100,000. The verdict allows the couple’s lawyers to petition for a separate award of attorneys fees. U.S. District Judge Richard Gergel likely will weigh that request in coming weeks, but it could lift the state's financial toll to $2 million, McCulloch said. Enzor was later fired over comments he made to a co-worker about his agency's director. Those words also were caught on video. But the civil rights suit stemmed from his run-in on Oct. 14, 2012, when he stopped Catherine Newkirk, who was traveling home with her husband after visiting their son in Jacksonville. Enzor alleged she was driving 77 mph in a 55-mph construction zone on Interstate 95. The trooper gave Catherine Newkirk a ticket, for 64 mph instead of 77. She insisted, though, that she had not been speeding at all. “I think there is a bit of discrimination going on here," she said, according to court documents. Enzor ordered her out of the SUV. A discussion, mostly inaudible in the video footage, followed. “Let me tell you something right now," the trooper is heard saying at one point. "No," she said. Enzor then said Catherine Newkirk was under arrest, but she kept her arms at her side. The trooper got behind her and pinned her against the car. That hurt, she exclaimed as the trooper tried to handcuff her. Enzor was still struggling when Jerome Newkirk got out, expressing concern for his wife. "Get in the car," the trooper yelled. Jerome Newkirk eventually got back in, but he poked his head out and shouted, "Ain't no reason for that. ... We'll sue them." He was arrested, too, and jailed on a charge of hindering a police officer. He was accused of coercing his wife to disobey the trooper. His wife was jailed on a count of resisting arrest. They sued first in state court, but with allegations of constitutional violations, the action was sent to federal court in June 2013. Nearly four years of legal wrangling followed, but the litigation survived the "long, hard haul," McCulloch said. Most recently, in January, an appeals court denied Enzor's request to dismiss the case under the "qualified immunity" doctrine, a legal concept that says officials cannot be held liable for conduct they shouldn't be expected to know is unconstitutional. The ruling pushed the case to trial Monday morning. By 6 p.m. Wednesday, the jury had awarded $325,000 to Jerome Newkirk and $1 million to his wife. Dick Harpootlian, another Columbia-based attorney for the couple, called the verdict significant because nobody was shot, beaten or killed. "It's not about the money," he said. "It's about holding people accountable."

What is LEGAL AID? What does LEGAL AID mean? LEGAL AID meaning, definition & explanation - LEGAL AID definition - LEGAL AID explanation. Source: Wikipedia.org article, adapted under https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-sa/3.0/ license. Legal aid is the provision of assistance to people otherwise unable to afford legal representation and access to the court system. Legal aid is regarded as central in providing access to justice by ensuring equality before the law, the right to counsel and the right to a fair trial. This article describes the development of legal aid and its principles, primarily as known in Europe, the Commonwealth of Nations and the United States. A number of delivery models for legal aid have emerged, including duty lawyers, community legal clinics and the payment of lawyers to deal with cases for individuals who are entitled to legal aid. Legal aid is essential to guaranteeing equal access to justice for all, as provided for by Article 6.3 of the European Convention on Human Rights regarding criminal law cases. Especially for citizens who do not have sufficient financial means, the provision of legal aid to clients by governments will increase the likelihood, within court proceedings, of being assisted by legal professionals for free (or at a lower cost) or of receiving financial aid. Legal aid has a close relationship with the welfare state, and the provision of legal aid by a state is influenced by attitudes towards welfare. Legal aid is a welfare provision by the state to people who could otherwise not afford counsel from the legal system. Legal aid also helps to ensure that welfare provisions are enforced by providing people entitled to welfare provisions, such as social housing, with access to legal advice and the courts. Historically legal aid has played a strong role in ensuring respect for economic, social and cultural rights which are engaged in relation to social security, housing, social care, health and education service provision, which may be provided publicly or privately, as well as employment law and anti-discrimination legislation. Jurists such as Mauro Cappelletti argue that legal aid is essential in providing individuals with access to justice, by allowing the individual legal enforcement of economic, social and cultural rights. His views developed in the second half of the 20th century, when democracies with capitalist economies established liberal welfare states that focused on the individual. States acted as contractors and service providers within a market-based philosophy that emphasised the citizen as consumer. This led to an emphasis on individual enforcement to achieve the realisation of rights for all. Prior to the mid-20th century, literature on legal aid emphasised collective enforcement of economic, social and cultural rights. As classic welfare states were built in the 1940s and following World War II, an underlying principle was that citizens had collective responsibility for economic, social and cultural rights; and the state assumed responsibility for those unable to provide for themselves through illness and unemployment. The enforcement of economic, social and cultural rights was to be collective, through policies rather than individual legal action. Laws were enacted to support welfare provisions, though these were regarded as laws for planners, not lawyers. Legal aid schemes were established, as it was assumed that the state had a responsibility to assist those engaged in legal disputes, but they initially focused primarily on family law and divorce.

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.

Paul Brampton, partner and construction and engineering solicitor at IBB Solicitors, discusses construction and engineering dispute resolution. For more information on construction law matters visit: http://www.ibblaw.co.uk/service/construction-and-engineering Transcript: Q. Should a client engage a specialist construction and engineering lawyer to resolve construction and engineering disputes? A. Our advice is that clients should not only use a specialist construction and engineering lawyer to help them resolve disputes, but a specialist should be engaged at an early stage to help them to avoid disputes. i. A specialist will be familiar with the numerous forms of construction contract deployed in the construction and engineering industries, and the interplay between the various contracts on any given project; ii. They will be familiar with the complexities of the construction and engineering processes and the types of document generated by building projects; iii. They will also be familiar with the special rules that apply to construction and engineering disputes, and the different types of dispute resolution methods available; iv. They will be able to identify the types of expert to engage and when to bring them on board; and v. More likely than not, they will have seen similar disputes in the past; or they will have the specialist toolbox to come up with legal solutions to novel problems. On occasion we find ourselves acting opposite general litigators. They may be fantastic lawyers but due to a lack of practical experience they will often struggle to get to grips with construction contracts and the methods commonly deployed to resolve construction and engineering disputes. Q. What is the client's role in resolving construction and engineering disputes? A. The client's role is really of paramount importance. For the best possible outcome there needs to be: i. Trust between the client and the lawyer; and ii. Both the client and the lawyer need to foster a collaborative relationship Before the matter even comes to litigation factors such as: i. The care taken by the client in operating its contracts; and ii. The quality of record keeping by the client This can be the difference between a good outcome and an unsatisfactory outcome. Q. Is construction and engineering litigation expensive? A. Construction and engineering litigation tends to be one of the more expensive types of litigation. i. Construction and engineering projects are complex undertakings involving a lot of different people over a lengthy period of time ii. The amount of documentation generated by a construction project can be vast iii. There are often multiple parties involved, with competing agendas iv. The issues in dispute can be highly technical, requiring input from a number of different experts in order to resolve them In addition, clients should never underestimate the administrative burden that a major piece of litigation can place on their business. A number of people within the client organisation will need to play an active role throughout the litigation process. Q. Are there ways to avoid construction and engineering disputes? A. One of the best methods for avoiding disputes is by investing in good project management. Good project management can take many forms but it will invariably mean: i. Properly managing the project risk through prudent contract procurement at the outset; ii. Employing the right people to manage the project. These people will be organised, good at record keeping, and will be good communicators; iii. Acting swiftly if problems occur. In our experience those clients who come to us early with their potential disputes, can expect a much higher probability of identifying a satisfactory and cost effective solution; iv. And if they follow our advice they will usually be better prepared if a full-blown dispute becomes unavoidable.

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:

http://www.techlawsolutions.com - Teamwork and ongoing, open communication between all parties is a crucial element to electronic discovery project success. The information technology staff should be engaged as advocates to help with strategy to handle data, understanding that the impact of litigation on technology is addressed differently than technology issues. Litigation hold should at least be discussed early and with active follow-up to establish a plan and set a schedule for reminders; there are many viable automated tools to support this effort. Further establishing quality control processes in the project management plan, and being prepared to adapt to changes or failures set the project team in position to manage the case rather than letting the case manage them - better to make a conscious decision than being forced into a default choice. David Chaumette of De la Rosa & Chaumette, and Julie Brown of Vorys discuss these topics with Tom O'Connor in the e-Discovery Zone at the ABA Tech Show. This is part 2 of a 2 part video.

Yet, as legal star Michelle Alexander reveals, today it is perfectly legal to discriminate against convicted criminals in nearly all the ways that it was once legal to discriminate against African Americans. Once you're labeled a felon, the old forms of discrimination—employment discrimination, housing discrimination, denial of the right to vote, denial of educational opportunity, denial of food stamps and other public benefits, and exclusion from jury service—are suddenly legal. Featured on the The Tavis Smiley Show, Bill Moyers Journal, Democracy Now!, and C-Span's Washington Journal, The New Jim Crow has become an overnight phenomenon, sparking a much-needed conversation about ways in which our system of mass incarceration has come to resemble systems of racial control from a different era. Michelle Alexander is a highly acclaimed civil rights lawyer, advocate, and legal scholar. As an associate professor of law at Stanford Law School, she directed the Civil Rights Clinic and pursued a research agenda focused on the intersection of race and criminal justice. In 2005, Alexander won a Soros Justice Fellowship that supported the writing of The New Jim Crow and accepted a joint appointment at the Kirwan Institute for the Study of Race and Ethnicity and the Moritz College of Law at The Ohio State University. Prior to joining academia, Alexander engaged in civil rights litigation in both the private and nonprofit sector, ultimately serving as the director of the Racial Justice Project for the ACLU of Northern California, where she helped lead a national campaign against racial profiling. Currently she devotes her time to freelance writing, public speaking, consulting, and caring for her three young children.

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.

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.

How to protect real estate from lawsuits and creditors. 1. Land Trust • Trustee holds title to property • Beneficiary controls the trustee • Ownership remains private • Because beneficiary has legal liability, beneficiary is often an LLC or limited partnership + LLC as general partner. 2. Limited Liability Company or Limited Partnership + LLC • Is the beneficiary of the trust • Provides lawsuit protection • Provides asset protection • Gives tax benefits • Estate planning benefits • In California, many feel the limited partnership + LLC as general partner provides strong asset protection and increased tax benefits. • To limit legal exposure it is prudent to keep the equity (property value – loans) per LLC to $200,000 or less 3. Living Trust • The serving tray upon which assets are passed to beneficiaries (children) upon death. • Avoids probate fees (Probate is the legal procedure of transferring assets from the deceased to others and often involves court and attorney’s fees.) • Controls when and to whom assets will be distributed upon death. • Possible estate tax reduction. 4. Limited Liability Company • Another LLC records liens (note and deed of trust or note and mortgage) against property. • Gives appearance of little to no equity in the property • Discourages litigation • Provides asset protection • Can remove lien at any time All that is submitted here is done with the understanding that the author is not engaged in rendering legal, accounting, or other professional services. If legal advice or other expert advice is required, the services of a practicing professional person such as a knowledgeable attorney and/or accountant should be sought. This is meant to be a brief summary and not cover all the "what ifs" and "yeah buts." It is meant to be a brief summary of protecting real estate assets from lawsuits.

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.
