Pujols: Taking legal action vs. Clark











Louis Cardinals star accused him of taking performance-enhancing drugs. Pujols released a statement Friday night claiming he was targeting Clark and the radio station on which his show had been airing. But early Saturday morning, the company that put Clark and co-host Kevin Slaten on the air, insideSTL Enterprises, announced the pair would not be returning to the air, according to a report from stltoday.com. The report said the radio station, WGNU, was leasing its midday weekday airtime to insideSTL Enterprises, and only been airing the show featuring Clark and Slaten since Aug. 1. In his statement, Pujols said he was taking a stand against his false accusers. BIOGENESIS BANS Bans will change MLB contracts "I am currently in the process of taking legal action against Jack Clark and his employers at WGNU 920AM," the injured Los Angeles Angels ' slugger said the statement Friday night. "I am going to send a message that you cannot act in a reckless manner, like they have, and get away with it. "If I have to be the athlete to carry the torch and pave the way for other innocent players to see that you can do something about it, I am proud to be that person. I have five young children and I take being a role model very seriously. The last thing I want is for the fans, and especially the kids out there, to question my reputation and character." Clark said Pujols' former trainer, Chris Mihlfeld, told him 10 years ago that he "shot him up." Mihlfeld told ESPN.com that he didn't tell Clark that Pujols took performance-enhancing drugs. "I haven't even talked to Jack Clark in close to 10 years," Mihlfeld said.

North Carolina's sweeping voter ID law faces legal challenge




ncvoterlawap.jpg

McCrory, a Republican, also said residents overwhelmingly support the common sense law and that North Carolina is following 34 other states in requiring some form of vote ID. Daily politics news delivered to your inbox: sign up for our newsletter "While some will try to make this seem to be controversial, the simple reality is that requiring voters to provide a photo ID when they vote is a common sense idea, McCrory also said. This new law brings our state in line with a healthy majority of other states throughout the country. The suit specifically targets the parts of the law that eliminate a week of early voting, end same-day registration, and prohibit "out-of-precinct" voting. The changes will not take effect until the 2016 elections, the governor said in a 95-second video his office posted on YouTube. The new law allows voters to cast a provisional ballot if they come to a polling station without proper ID. The hours to cast an early ballot remain the same, and there will be 10 days for voters to cast their ballot early. However, the new law will not allow a person to register and vote on the same day. Other changes include an effort to reduce the pay-to-play culture of politics by placing additional campaign finance restrictions on lobbyists, according to the governors office. Supporters of the legislation say it is meant to prevent voter fraud, which they claim is both rampant and undetected. Critics, including Democrats and libertarians, suggested the true goal is to suppress voter turnout, especially among blacks, the young, the elderly and the poor.

Legal Events to Watch This Week






"Let me be perfectly clear: These problems were our fault, and it is our job to fix them," Dimon wrote in this year's annual letter to shareholders. "In fact, I feel terrible that we let our regulators down." Some observers think JPMorgan is being unfairly targeted. They say that regulators criticized for being too lax before the financial crisis are now overcompensating by being too punitive. "It is jihad against the largest U.S. banks," says Tom Brown, founder of the investment management firm Second Curve Capital and often a critic of the industry. Among the legal problems JPMorgan is facing or has recently settled: The London whale: The Department of Justice and the Securities and Exchange Commission are looking into last year's $6 billion trading loss, which is nicknamed after the location of the trader who allegedly engineered it and the size of the bets he made. Authorities are focusing on whether the bank had adequate control over its trading operations, and also whether it tried to cover up or downplay the size of the loss. Federal prosecutors are reportedly preparing to arrest two employees who were involved. JPMorgan says it has also received requests for information related to "inquiries and investigations" by Congress, U.S.

Law schools devise debt-free path to degree




A student is pictured graduating. | Reuters

Stephen Goldfinch of Murrells Inlet, a graduate of the law school, is pushing the merger idea. "I believe the Legislature would support such a merger," he said. "It could be done tomorrow." Leaders of the Charleston School of Law, one of two law schools in the state, have entered a management services agreement with InfiLaw Systems which owns three other for-profit law schools. Such an agreement is often a prelude to a sale and students and alumni at the Charleston school are concerned what that may mean to the value of their degrees. The school's alumni board is gathering information about a possible sale to InfiLaw and how to stop it. Goldfinch said he has had discussions about the merger with the Greg Padgett , the chairman of the College of Charleston Board of Trustees . Padgett said there have been informal discussions in the past about such a merger. He said while he's not opposed, he's also not promoting the idea. "We welcome every opportunity to discuss how the College of Charleston can better serve the people of Charleston and the state," he said. "We would be willing to take a careful look at the Charleston School of Law." Goldfinch says Coastal Carolina University has also expressed interest in a merger with the law school but that would require the law school moving to Conway. He http://socallawsupport.com/ doesn't think that will happen.

Julia Law Update: Prominent Phila. lawyer writes letter urging D.A. to end grand jury investigation of his girlfriend's death, report says






So Georgetown is ultimately paying its share with money its students borrow from the federal government. The feds are paying back themselves. At no step in the process does Georgetown actually have to pay anything. The feds are picking up the entire bill. Heres a simplified example of how it works. Lets say that, without this program, Georgetown would be charging $10 for tuition. Lets suppose further that, without this program and just using the normal federal income-based repayment program, these students would end up paying, on average, $5 over the 10 years before their loans are forgiven. Now suppose Georgetown proposes this program, wherein instead of the student paying the $5, Georgetown pays the $5. It then increases the starting tuition to $15 to cover the new expense. Under normal student loan programs, that would mean that students would have to pay more back because they would need to take out a larger loan to cover the increased tuition. But under income-based repayment, your payments vary with your income, not the size of the loan, so you still only have to pay back $5 before the loan is forgiven. So Georgetown gets $15 from the federal government, using $10 for education and using the other $5 to pay back the loan (or an equivalent earlier loan) before its forgiven. So the federal government is paying for all of this.

Obama accuses Republicans of 'fixation' against healthcare law




PICTURES: Grand jury probes death of Phila. lawyer's girlfriend In a letter to District Attorney Seth Williams, Charles Peruto Jr. called for a "speedy conclusion" to the investigation, which he claims has hurt his reputation and his law firm and could cost him millions, Philly.com reports. "I am a citizen of this county and the delay of any announcement of the findings that could be made in this case have damaged me so severely and incalculably that words cannot adequately describe what I am going through," Peruto wrote in the July 11 letter, according to the news website. On May 25, Law, 26, was found dead, naked and face down in the bathtub in Peruto's Center City condo by a maintenance worker. Law had reportedly been dating Peruto, 58, and worked as a paralegal at his law firm. Investigators initially reported no signs of foul play at the scene and Peruto was reportedly in Avalon, N.J. for the weekend and was not at home when Law was found. CBS Philly reports that after the initial investigation and return of toxicology reports, which sources say showed a blood-alcohol level of what would be several times the legal limit for driving, the District Attorney sent the case to a grand jury in June to investigate the death. Law enforcement officials have said they believe Law likely drowned in the tub, perhaps after a seizure. "I have cooperated 100 percent on this matter from minute one," Peruto reportedly wrote in his letter.

How Georgetown Law gets Uncle Sam to pay its students? bills




Even corporate lawyers like the dudes from Suits could pull over this one, in theory. (USA Network)

Jared Polis (D-Colo.) to overhaul the nations student loan repayment process. But many dont expect Congress to address the issue until loan forgiveness begins in 2017, or until lawmakers rewrite the Higher Education Act whichever comes first. Top law schools have long helped graduates who choose public service over corporate law repay their loans after graduation. For graduates who went to work in a legal position at a government or nonprofit, schools would help cover loan payments for up to10 years. The idea was to help graduates pay off six-figure debt on a five-figure salary. But the programs couldnt usually cover students entire monthly loan payment, which nationally averages more than $1,000. And once the 10 years were up, graduates were on their own to pay the remaining balance. Then Congress made two changes to student loans that magnified the power of school assistance programs, said Jason Delisle, director of the Federal Education Budget Project at the New America Foundation. Starting in 2006, graduate students could for the first time borrow enough from the federal government to cover the entire cost of their education.

"Ninety percent are not mature enough to be out there with a gun," he said. But he said he had three come in the first week the law was in effect, including one on the first day. "He said the law had changed and he wanted a permit," he said. Harden denied it for public safety reasons. He doesn't know yet if the young man will appeal. Sheriffs said issuing a permit to someone under 21 has always been a tough call because federal law prohibits a licensed firearm dealer from selling a handgun to someone that age. But younger people can get guns legally as a gift or buy them from individuals.

Law enforcement can?t harass suspected undocumented immigrants






Washington Post Editorials Editorials represent the views of The Washington Post as an institution, as determined through debate among members of the editorial board. News reporters and editors never contribute to editorial board discussions, and editorial board members dont have any role in news coverage. Editorial Board Racial profiling doesnt have to be part of effective law enforcement. The deputies, Kevin Lynch and Jeffrey Openshaw, acted on no suspicion of criminal conduct. Indeed, Ms. Santos, who is undocumented , has no criminal history. Nonetheless, they approached her, asked for her identification and, after a considerable wait, told her to sit tight while a federal data base digested her name. No, she would not be on time for her shift. On Wednesday, a federal appeals court slapped down Mr. Jenkins and the county sheriffs department. The appeals court said that law enforcement officers may not go around accosting people merely on the suspicion that they may lack immigration documents, no matter what they look like or how limited their facility with English.

"The really interesting question is why it is that my friends in the other party have made the idea of preventing these people from getting healthcare their holy grail," Obama told reporters. Saying that Republicans have "an ideological fixation" against "Obamacare," the Democratic president added, "The one unifying principle in the Republican Party at the moment is making sure that 30 million people don't have healthcare." Obama has been battling Republicans over universal health insurance since 2009, when he launched an effort in Congress to also clamp down on insurance companies' ability to deny coverage to those with pre-existing medical conditions and place caps on individuals' lifetime insurance benefits. The enactment of the Democratic legislation in 2010 has been met with repeated attempts by the Republican-controlled House of Representatives to kill the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell also has continued to hammer away against the law. On his 2014 re-election website, McConnell leads with the message: "It's time to repeal Obamacare, root and branch!" In response to Obama's news conference remarks, Rory Cooper, a spokesman for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, the second-ranking House Republican, said, "Obamacare increases costs, turns full-time jobs into part-time jobs and reduces the quality of care." Cooper urged passage of Republican legislation that would delay the startup of the healthcare sign-up program for individuals, just as Obama has done for certain employers. In early July, the Obama administration, in a surprise announcement, said it was delaying until 2015 the requirement for employer-provided health insurance. The "employer mandate" would level a $2,000 fine for every full-time employee without coverage. But the law exempts small companies with 30 workers or fewer. The administration said the delay would give government and businesses more time to prepare for the program, while Republicans said it underscored that the law was unworkable. Republicans attacked Obama for unilaterally delaying the provision of the law, saying he went beyond his presidential powers.
