FDIC waging legal battle against hundreds of former bank leaders








Paula Deen accuser is singing new tune after legal agreement




13 to-die-for tablescapes on Pinterest

Cleaning up the financial wreckage of 483 shuttered banks, many small community banks, has depleted the insurance fund by $89 billion over the past five years, according to the FDIC. In that time, the agency has recovered $727 million from individuals associated with the failed banks. Officials at the FDIC anticipate the number of new lawsuits will crest after this year, but there is no clear end in sight for putting the cases to rest. Only one of the agencys lawsuits has reached a jury, while 10 have been settled out of court. There have been repeated delays as defendants seek to have cases thrown out and argue that their bank was the victim of a bad economy not negligence. Critics say the FDIC should have moved faster to bring cases to the courts. But agency officials argue that a thorough examination of misconduct is not quickly , or easily, achieved. We generally dont have people come in saying, Were really sorry we caused the bank to fail, heres a check, said Richard Osterman Jr., acting general counsel at the FDIC. We have to investigate, uncover information, subpoena records, do depositions and often file actions. It usually takes the FDIC about 18 months to investigate a bank failure. If investigators identify misconduct by officers or directors, they must receive approval from the FDIC board before taking action.

San Diego Will Pay For Disgraced Mayor Filner's Legal Defense






As a result of these cases, JPMorgan said it anticipates $6.8billion in future legal costs in excess of the money it has already set aside to handle litigation. That is larger than the amount that other banks have added to their reserves, according to analysis from Barclays Research. At this rate, JPMorgan is on track to unseat Bank of America as the bank with the greatest legal troubles. Bank of America has held that title for nearly three years because of litigation tied to its 2008 acquisition of beleaguered mortgage lender Countrywide Financial. The bank is still battling cases, but the number has waned. Almost every corner of JPMorgans business is under scrutiny from state, federal and international authorities. Regulators are investigating the way the bank recouped credit card debts from delinquent borrowers, how it marketed mortgage-backed securities and whether it turned a blind eye to Bernie Madoffs Ponzi scheme. The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that the Justice Department is also looking into whether the bank manipulated energy markets, an allegation that led to a $410million settlement with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission last month.

Why Legal Marijuana Is A Good Argument for Tax Reform

The song of the summer could end up as the legal battle of the fall. Marvin Gaye 's son hinted that the estate of the late R&B singer would take legal action against Robin Thicke over his hit song Blurred Lines. In an interview on TMZ Li ve Wednesday, Marvin Gaye III told the gossip site that, Theres a way to business and a way to not do business. Duffy-Marie Arnoult/WireImage Marvin Gaye III, the Lets Get It On singers son, hinted to TMZ that the family is considering a lawsuit over Thickes Blurred Lines.

Thats caused my family a lot of duress.

Lawyers for Thicke and Blurred Lines collaborators, Pharrell Williams and T.I. had filed requesting dismissal of future claims that their song copies any previous songs including Marvin Gayes Got to Give It Up. (Critics have also charged Thickes hit borrows equally from Funkadelics Sexy Ways.) Yes, if you listen to the music, Im sure anyone will see the similarities between what my father does and what Robin Thick has been trying to do, Gayes son told TMZ.

CBS prevails in 'The Glass House' legal dispute




Cable versus broadcast ratings

That pungent odor you smell isnt Blue Skunk Special. It may be the sweet scent of a tax shelter wafting through the door. First, lets parse whats going on. Several states have recently made marijuana legal. But weed remains illegal under federal law. Thus, while growers and sellers must pay federal income tax on their profits, they are explicitly barred under the Revenue Code from claiming deductions or credits. Buyers dont pay federal excise taxes as they might if they purchased, say, beer or cigarettes. To be clear, the state-legal marijuana industry Rob wrote about doesnt want to pay more taxes itself. Indeed, by gaining access to deductions, it would pay less. Buyers, on the other hand, would pay a new tax. Backers estimate a $50-per-once retail-level levy would generate about $20 billion a year. This is enough to give at least a few members of Congress the revenue munchies.

Thicke, whose ?Blurred Lines? is considered the song of the summer, launched a preemptive lawsuit last week to  head off potential legal action by Gaye?s family.

"I assumed that all of my complaints about the workplace environment were getting to Paula Deen, but I learned during this matter that this was not the case. The Paula Deen I have known for more than 8 years, is a woman of compassion and kindness and will never tolerate discrimination or racism of any kind toward anyone. "I now know that the workplace environment issues that I raised are being reviewed and will in the future no longer be at issue. "I wish Ms. Deen and her family all the best in all of their future endeavors and I am very pleased that this matter has now been resolved and can now be put behind us." Jackson was not available to discuss this about-face. The Associated Press reported that adocument filed in U.S. District Court in Savannah, Ga., said both sides agreed to drop the lawsuit "without any award of costs or fees to any party." What follows is the statement made by Deen, which also includes mutual admiration for Jackson: "While this has been a difficult time for both my family and myself, I am pleased that the Judge dismissed the race claims and I am looking forward to getting this behind me, now that the remaining claims have been resolved. "During this time my faith has strengthened me and the tremendous outpouring of support as well as prayers from folks from all walks of life has been both humbling and overwhelming. "I am confident that those who truly know how I live my life know that I believe in kindness and fairness for everyone.

Nicholas Rau 460th Space Wing Public Affairs 8/23/2013-BUCKLEY AIR FORCE BASE, Colo.--Pop culture depicts military justice as a uniformed member in a courtroom grilling a witness who shouts back, "You can't handle the truth." In reality; however, the Buckley Legal Office does so much more. The legal office, also referred to as the Office of the Staff Judge Advocate, handles seven unique functions that support the base. These include military justice, legal assistance and adverse actions, as well as environmental, contract, labor and civil law. Legal assistance is one of the core functions of the legal office. In fact, the office handles more than 4,300 cases and clients each year. "We are a very busy legal office and most of our clients are retirees and spouses," said Connie Thomas, Buckley Legal Office legal assistant. "In addition to our clients, we get about 200 to 300 phone calls a week." With the number of cases and clients breaking 4,000, the legal office has revamped its legal assistance hours. The new legal assistance schedule is designed to more effectively serve their clients and the mission, stated Maj. Hanna Yang, Buckley Legal Office deputy staff judge advocate. On Tuesday afternoons clients can now see an attorney, get their wills drafted, notarized and executed -- all in one day. For all non-will matters, clients can consult with a lawyer on an appointment basis Wednesday afternoons.

Law and order: Legal office assists with base needs




Legal office handles base needs

Finance Fri, Aug 23, 2013, 11:16 PM EDT - U.S. Markets closed San Diego Will Pay For Disgraced Mayor Filner's Legal Defense By Josh Barro | Business Insider 3 hours ago REUTERS / Fred Greaves San Diego Mayor Bob Filner (D) San Diego Mayor Bob Filner has agreed to resign effective one week from today, but not before he extracted a major concession from the city: It will pay for his legal defense against many of the claims against him. The city will provide a joint legal defense against claims from current and former employees of the city of San Diego, who are likely to sue both the city and Filner personally over sexual harassment. Additionally, the city will pay up to $98,000 for independent legal counsel for Filner in those cases. This doesn't mean Filner is totally off the hook financially. If plaintiffs are awarded damages from the city because of Filner's conduct, it reserves the right to sue him to recoup the cost of those awards. There's one key exception to that, though: the city won't sue Filner to recover any award to Irene McCormack Jackson, his former communications director who is represented by Gloria Allred.

On Monday, the No. 1-ranked television network said that it had reached a settlement in the 15-month legal dispute over whether ABC's "The Glass House," a short-lived reality show that closely mirrored CBS' successful "Big Brother" show, constituted a violation of CBS' copyright and trade secrets. CBS said it would receive compensation in the matter, but it declined to say how much. ON LOCATION: Where the cameras roll "The Glass House" got stoned in the ratings last summer.

Legal Wranglings






As lawyers, Dickens and Scudder know the legal issues and liabilities of holding a run in which several very large bulls chase thousands of people, at least some of whom probably had something to drink. Thus, participants must sign a waiver that is three pages of eight-point type specifying every possible hazard and risk. "The waiver can't stop people from suing us," Dickens said, "but it will stop them from winning." There has been roughly one death a decade -- and many more gorings -- at Pamplona's running of the bulls, but the Great Bull Run sounds like it will be significantly safer. Rather than the fighting bulls and steers with sharpened horns used in Pamplona, this run uses steers with unmodified horns and rodeo bulls. Such bulls are still menacing -- "If you've ever seen a rodeo and seen a bull toss a rodeo clown in the air, you know what they can do," Dickens said -- but they are not as aggressive. Plus, the bulls and people will be running on a dirt-covered roadway with no slick areas and no dangerous twists, turns and corners. And yes, Dickens has heard from animal rights activists. Unlike Pamplona, where some of the bulls are killed later in the bull ring, Dickens insists they will be treated with great care to protect them from any injury during the event.

Tech legal news site Groklaw shuts down because email privacy 'is impossible'

"Now that I know that ensuring privacy online is impossible. I find myself unable to write." Secure email provider Lavabit recently announced it would shut down due to an ongoing legal dispute, presumably with the U.S. government. "I have been forced to make a difficult decision: to become complicit in crimes against the American people or walk away from nearly ten years of hard work by shutting down Lavabit," company owner Ladar Levison wrote on its website. Lavabit was reportedly used by former U.S. National Security Agency contractor Edward Snowden, who leaked documents related to NSA spying programs and is now in Russia after being given asylum. Following Lavabit's closure, Silent Circle also shut down its secure email service, while calling the move a preemptive one rather than something precipitated by a government subpoena or warrant. On one level it's little surprise Jones felt compelled to shut down Groklaw, given how fiercely she has protected her own privacy over the past 10 years. "There is now no shield from forced exposure," Jones wrote. "Now that I know that ensuring privacy online is impossible.

Glenn Greenwald's partner, David Miranda, threatens to take legal action








A-Rod paid legal retainer for owner of clinic in doping scandal






Miranda's detention ended only after a lawyer from Greenwald's news organization, the British-based Guardian, got the chance to talk to him after about eight hours. After that, the 28-year-old was released, without materials he'd been carrying on behalf of Greenwald, to pass onto a filmmaker in Berlin. He said officials also confiscated his laptop, phone and USB sticks. Miranda ultimately returned to Brazil, where he lives with Greenwald. Sitting alongside his partner, Greenwald said the detention gave the British government "a huge black eye in the world, (made) them look thuggish and authoritarian (for) interfering in the journalism process (and created) international incidents with the government of Brazil, which is indignant about this." The action has prompted a lawsuit asking British courts to declare what happened to Miranda illegal because his detention was unrelated to terrorism, Greenwald said. The journalist added the lawsuit also demands that all the items taken from Miranda be returned to him, and that the British government can't first use or share them with anyone else. Greenwald: UK will regret what it did Glenn Greenwald's partner detained Toobin: Greenwald handling crisis wrong "To start detaining people who they think they are reporting on what they're doing under terrorism laws, that is as dangerous and oppressive as it gets," Greenwald said. White House knew Miranda would be detained Britain's Home Office on Tuesday defended Miranda's questioning, saying the government and police "have a duty to protect the public and our national security." "If the police believe that an individual is in possession of highly sensitive stolen information that would help terrorism, then they should act and the law provides them with a framework to do that," it said. "Those who oppose this sort of action need to think about what they are condoning." Questioning was under Terrorism Act 2000 The British government and Miranda say he was questioned on Sunday under Schedule 7 of Terrorism Act 2000 , which gives authorities more powers to investigate and combat terrorism, though not without some controversy. In a statement that didn't name Miranda but referred to his detention, London's Metropolitan Police called what happened "legally and procedurally sound" and said it came after "a detailed decision-making process." The statement describes the law under which Miranda was detained as "a key part of our national security capability which is used regularly and carefully by the Metropolitan Police Service to help keep the public safe." But that's not how Miranda and Greenwald view the law, or at least how it was applied in this case. Said Miranda, for whom English is a second language and who didn't have an interpreter on hand throughout the ordeal: "They didn't ask me anything about terrorism, not one question." "They were just telling me: 'If you don't answer this, you are going to jail,' " he added. Greenwald said he learned three hours into the incident that his partner was being detained, and he added that concerned Brazilian diplomats and Guardian lawyers were shut out of the process for hours. Greenwald: UK authorities trying to intimidate journalists The entire episode, Greenwald speculated, was designed to intimidate him and other investigative journalists from using classified information and digging into stories critical of the British and allied governments. His newspaper's editor, Alan Rusbridger, detailed in an editorial published late Monday meetings with UK government officials and "shadowy Whitehall figures" in connection with Greenwald's reporting.

ABC later gave the show the boot, but CBS continued to press its claims, provoking a counter-suit last fall from "Glass House" executive producer Kenny Rosen, producer Michael O'Sullivan and ABC executive Corie Henson. The trio formerly worked on CBS' "Big Brother" before collaborating on "The Glass House" for ABC. Rosen, when working on "Big Brother," signed a non-disclosure agreement that promised he would not divulge CBS trade secrets. The case went to arbitration earlier this year.

They did not contest the first payment.

"Mr. Bosch has consistently expressed his desire http://socallawsupport.com/ to cooperate with any and all investigative authorities," she said. Bosch's clinic is also under federal investigation by the U.S. Attorney's Office in Miami for the unlicensed sale of controlled substances to professional baseball players, as well as high school students, according to lawyers familiar with the investigation. Bosch has not spoken to the media in months, but initially denied any wrongdoing. A Grand Jury began hearing testimony and taking evidence last Friday, the Miami Herald reported. The U.S. Attorney's Office in Miami launched the probe last month after Porter Fischer, a whistleblower at the defunct Biogenesis clinic said professional baseball players were not its only customers, according to legal correspondence with Fischer that was viewed by Reuters.

A further analysis of whether current billing rules are clear and enforceable may also be advisable. A total picture of a companys spend brings all of these factors into focus. 2. Learn About Best Billing Practices. Fortunately, there has been significant progress made in recent years on the formulation of practical, reasonable billing rules. While a small percentage of outside counsel remain resistant to any billing discipline, most firms readily accept the idea that common sense standards are helpful to all concerned. The goal is to create rules that fit a companys culture, and that advance the attorney-client relationship in a respectful manner. A well informed consultant should be in a position to easily tailor billing rules to the unique demands that each company places on its outside counsel based upon general best practices that have been widely recognized. In fact, many outside counsel are already familiar with widely accepted best practices, making the consideration and adoption of the practices that much easier. 3.

Cops Remind Hempfest Crowd Legal Pot Is ?More Complex Than That?






Instead, they supplied the munchies, giving out a thousand free bags of Doritos with stickers that detail the intricacies of I-502, the state of Washingtons new law that decriminalizes marijuana. But according to SPD spokesman Sean Whitcomb, the laws passage doesnt mean that anyone who wants can simply smoke a joint. People under the age of 21 who are caught with marijuana would still get a misdemeanor, and although an adult can purchase it from someone on a street corner, the person who gave it to them still commits a felony even with the new law. The headline that a lot of people saw was that marijuana is legal, and as police, we know its a lot more complex than that, Whitcomb said. We wanted to share with the community our expectations as the police force responsible for providing public safety services to over 600,000 people in our city. The planners of Hempfest arranged three themes for this years festival: supporting the complete decriminalization of marijuana, reducing the potential harm of use of the drug and recognizing the power of voting. Kari Boiter, one of the events organizers, said the passing of I-502 has been the most prominent step toward cannabis law reform. Look at what weve done with our vote, Boiter said. We want to make sure people are getting out there and voting, and electing candidates that support our views and are going to do the work to change our laws. Boiter and the rest of Hempfests core staff say that there is more work yet to be done. There is still a mandatory minimum penalty in the state for possession of over 28 grams of cannabis, and the drug is still in the federal books as a Schedule 1 controlled substance, meaning it has no medical benefit and has a high chance of abuse. But even for someone openly smoking at the festival, there was little to fear.
