Carroll County, Georgia, sits on the western border of our state, next to Alabama. The Governor's Office of Highway Safety ("GOHS") has issued a brand-new, updated report on car accidents in Georgia. As a Georgia car accident lawyer, I was glad to see that the new report includes 2009, which is the latest year for which statistics are available. The report covers accidents that happened in Carroll County (and the rest of the state) between 2005 and 2009. The statistics incorporate the car… [read post]

Last week, Assembly Member Curt Hagman introduced AB 571 on behalf of the Business Law Section of the California State Bar.  The bill would ease the restrictions on distributions to shareholders, as defined in Corporations Code § 166.  These limitations apply to California corporations and foreign corporations subject to Corporations Code Section 2115. California’s current statute does not rely on the archaic concept of “surplus” still used by Delaware (See DGCL §§ 154 & 170).  Instead,… [read post]

A ballot initiative in Montana advocating a state policy that corporations are not entitled to constitutional rights because they are not human beings has been qualified by the Secretary of State for the November ballot. Initiative No. 166, the “Prohibition on Corporate Contributions and Expenditures in Montana Elections Act,” asks voters to choose whether to charge elected and appointed officials to prohibit corporate campaign contributions and expenditures, limit political spending in… [read post]

Chapter 5 of the Corporations Code establishes various limitations on distributions by California corporations.  The term “distributions to its shareholders” is itself defined in Section 166.  The question of appropriate limitations on dividends and other corporate distributions is not new.  Even Samuel Clemens (aka Mark Twain) wrote about “cooked dividends” and got into a great deal of trouble for his efforts (A topic that I covered last year in “‘Cooked Dividends’ Leads to Bloody… [read post]

Adding to this site’s archived case summaries addressing fault for motor vehicle collisions, reasons for judgement were released last week by the BC Supreme Court, Vancouver Registry, addressing liability for a collision which occurred when a motorist attempted to pass a left hand turning vehicle. In last week’s case (Ekman v. Cook) the Plaintiff was operating a motorcycle.  The traffic ahead of him slowed to a near stop and he moved into the oncoming lane to pass the vehicles.… [read post]

On Thursday, March 16, 2012, the Environmental Protection Agency (“EPA”) took the almost unprecedented step of publishing in the Federal Register a correction to its prior definition of “regulated new source review pollutant” (“Rule”) contained in two sets of Prevention of Significant Deterioration (“PSD”) regulations, 40 C.F.R. §§ 51.166 and 52.21, and in EPA’s Emissions Offset Interpretative Ruling, 40 C.F.R. Part 51, Appendix S, 77 Fed.Reg. 15,656. The purpose of the revision… [read post]

Brad Sewell, Senior Attorney, New York In June, NRDC submitted a petition to the National Marine Fisheries Service to list the pinto abalone as “endangered” under the Endangered Species Act. (In August, the Center for Biological Diversity submitted a similar petition.) Monitoring shows populationsof the species have declined by 80-99 percent. In many areas, the decline occurred after the closure of pinto abalone fisheries. NMFS announced today that the ESA listing may be… [read post]

Frances Beinecke, President of NRDC, New York City One year ago, Superstorm Sandy ripped through the Northeast with unprecedented force. I still remember the harried calls to loved ones, the anxious waiting to hear from friends in harm's way, and the heartbreak for those who lost so much. More than 159 Americans died in the storm, and 72,000 homes and businesses were damaged in New Jersey alone. The official price tag topped $65 billion, but people’s drained nest eggs and lost… [read post]

Section 158 of the Motor Vehicle Act prohibits drivers from passing vehicles on the right except in limited circumstances.  Reasons for judgement were released this week by the BC Court of Appeal discussing this prohibition in the context of a personal injury lawsuit. In this week’s case (Smeltzer v. Merrison) the Defendant was travelling Northbound.  There was one Northbound lane of traffic which was backed up with other vehicles.  The traffic lane widened as it approached in intersection… [read post]

Noah Long, Legal Director, Western Energy Project, Energy & Transportation Program; and Clean Energy Counsel, Land & Wildlife Program, San Francisco The economics of energy are changing. It’s good news for our health and the planet that it’s cheaper for utilities to buy clean energy -- renewables and efficiency -- than fossil fuels to generate electricity for our homes and businesses. NRDC’s recent analysis of the under-reported role of energy efficiency… [read post]

Why do we have so many deadly car wrecks here in Atlanta? And what can we do to cut back on them? I practice law here in Atlanta, and I represent people who need an Atlanta car accident lawyer. I have met with families who have been devastated because they lost someone they loved very dearly in a car crash, and I have seen people with serious injuries struggling to rebuild their physical health and deal with the crushing financial and emotional consequences of a serious personal injury from an… [read post]

In my most recent legal blog posts, I have been chronicling the deaths from car accidents that occurred in the City of Atlanta in 2008. I am using information maintained by the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration ("NHTSA"). NHTSA requires all states to send in data about the fatal car accidents that occur in their jurisdictions, and NHTSA compiles all of the information in a database called FARS, which stands for Fatality Analysis Reporting System. I described Atlanta's February… [read post]

Six people were killed in separate Atlanta car accidents in September and October 2008. I have been writing in my car accident lawyer blog about the crashes that have occurred in and around Atlanta. With this entry, I am going to talk about when and where fatal accidents occurred in Atlanta in September and October 2008. (At this time, the database I am using does not have data past 2009. For information about the 2009 car accidents, please see my 2009 fatal crashes entries, which began on… [read post]

You don't have to be an Atlanta car accident lawyer like I am to figure out that when a car hits a pedestrian, the pedestrian fares the worse of the two. But when you are a car accident attorney, you see more than your share of the tragedy that is generated when a pedestrian is struck and killed by a car. So I plan to devote several entries to looking at the pedestrian wrecks that happen here in Atlanta in hopes we can figure out how to lower the number of them. Today I want to talk specifically… [read post]

One of the most striking differences between summary judgment evidence and evidence at trial is in the use of interested witness testimony. While the evidence at most trials includes interested witness testimony – often riddled with contradictions and inconsistencies – the use of this type of evidence in the summary judgment context is quite restricted.  Rule 166a(c) of the Texas Rules of Civil Procedure provides that interested witness testimony used to support a summary judgment must… [read post]

I have been blogging about car accidents in Atlanta, and in a recent entry I talked about the surprising fact that - at least according to the 2008 Fatality Analysis Reporting System figures available from NHTSA, more pedestrian deaths occurred in the winter months than in the summer months, when you might expect that more people would be walking. In this entry, I would like to talk about the time of day that pedestrians were killed here in Atlanta. I am an Atlanta pedestrian death lawyer and I… [read post]

Noah Long, Legal Director, Western Energy Project, Energy & Transportation Program; and Clean Energy Counsel, Land & Wildlife Program, San Francisco This entry is the second of a two-part follow up to the blog I posted last fall. The first entry focused on the national story of coal's decline, this entry focuses on the west. Investors already projected another bleak year for the U.S. coal industry – but 2014 may be the worst year for coal producers. In contrast,… [read post]
