Several of the Rosenberg Scholars (Janice, Alex, Chloe) had the opportunity to visit the 315th Juvenile Court last week and speak with Associate Judge Angela Ellis about the child protection court system in Harris County. Judge Ellis was very generous with her time and spoke to us about her role as judge and developing the GIRLS (Growing Independence Restoring Lives) court for girls who are actively engaged in or at risk of becoming involved in prostitution/human trafficking.  She also gave us… [read post]

Southern District of New York prosecutors have filed a superseding indictment against Frederic Cilins, the French citizen who has been charged with obstructing a grand jury investigation into alleged bribes paid for certain mining rights in the Simandou region of the Republic of Guinea. The new charging document adds additional details about Cilins’ alleged attempts to destroy documents and obtain a false affidavit from a cooperating witness. The government has also added a… [read post]

Frederic Cilins has pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice for impeding a Southern District of New York grand jury investigation into money laundering and FCPA violations in the Republic of Guinea.

New certifications for radio assignment/transfer applicants Over the last couple of years, the Commission has, in its “Rural Radio” proceeding, taken steps to facilitate the acquisition, by Native American Tribes, of radio broadcast stations designed to serve primarily Tribal Lands. (You can read about some of those steps here, here and here.) The most recent of those steps were taken late last year but, as we reported last January, they did not all become effective then… [read post]

Frederic Cilins has moved to dismiss Count One of the superseding indictment filed against him last month, arguing that prosecutors overreached in bringing a conspiracy charge under a “radical new theory: that Mr. Cilins interfered with a Guinean civil licensing investigation, which somehow amounts to a violation of U.S. obstruction law under 18.U.S.C § 1519.” Cilins was indicted last spring for allegedly interfering with a 2013 grand jury investigation in the Southern District… [read post]

The FCC issued a declaratory ruling this week finding that Anderson Cooper’s new talk show appeared to be a bona fide news interview program exempt from equal opportunities under the FCC’s political broadcasting rules interpreting the mandate of Section 315 of the Communications Act. This ruling is another in a series of rulings by the FCC making clear that virtually any interview-type program on which a candidate appears, that is not administered in a partisan fashion and which is regularly… [read post]

Formerly, Nevada permitted members of boards of directors and board committees to participate in meetings by means of a telephone conference or similar methods of communication.  Stockholders were likewise permitted to participate in stockholder meetings. Both statutes included the requirement that all persons participating in the meeting had to be able to “hear each other”.  California imposes a similar condition on director participation in meetings by means of telephone or electronic… [read post]

Here's something interesting from the Balkinization blog that passed my comment regarding college and university textbooks.Apparently, and now you'll see my ignorance in this category, a new federal law requires all colleges and universities that receive federal funding (which pretty much includes every institution) to provide students with information about the costs of their textbooks.As the Balkinization blog points out, the idea is "to give students better information so that they can shop… [read post]

The investigation centers on alleged bribes paid for mining rights in the Simandou region of the Republic of Guinea. A judge in the Southern District has now given Cilins the opportunity to inspect and test the authenticity of… [read post]

The fundamentals of corporate action can seem about as interesting as flossing.  Yet, the failure to attend to either is likely to result in unpleasant consequences as one lawyer recently discovered in Winterton v. Humitech of No. Cal., LLC, 2011 Bankr. LEXIS 4164 (9th Cir. BAP 2011).  The case began with a lawsuit in California.  That lawsuit resulted in one of the parties – a Nevada corporation named Blue Pine Group, Inc. - commencing a Chapter 7 bankruptcy case.  A purported shareholder in… [read post]

In the waning days before the mid-term election, we have received many questions about the applicability of the political broadcasting rules to state and local candidates.  In particular, we have seen a number of letters from attorneys representing candidates who are running for state and local offices (everything from Governor to county commissioner or school board representative), who claim that an attack by an opposing candidate is unfounded and that a broadcast station must pull that ad from… [read post]

Darby Hoover, Senior Resource Specialist, San Francisco Recycling is one of the most common of all environmental activities, and it’s also a great way to save natural resources. Recycling keeps useful materials out of landfills and incinerators, and using recovered materials to make new products and packages saves energy, water, and resources such as trees and metal ores. Recycling reduces global warming pollution, too. A 2011 report prepared by the Tellus Institute, More Jobs,… [read post]

While most of the FCC's political broadcasting rules have remain unchanged for almost 20 years, each year there are a few new wrinkles that arise, and seemingly a few misconceptions that make the rounds among advertising agencies that work with political candidates.  One such misconception that seems to be circulating this year is that an ad for a state or local political candidate does not need to have their voice or picture to be a "use" under FCC rules.  Only "uses" are entitled to lowest… [read post]

Generally, where an infant or someone under another disability is a necessary party to an action, it is the parent or guardian of the property who represents him in that action.  If the disabled individual has no such guardian, then the court shall appoint a guardian-ad-litem to represent his interests (see CPLR 1201).  It is the appropriate guardian who will have the authority to enter into a stipulation of settlement on behalf of the incapacitated individual, but he or she must seek… [read post]

Kit Kennedy, Counsel, Air and Energy Program, New York The $1.1 trillion-dollar budget bill just passed by Congress will avoid a government shutdown and fund the government until October, but it includes a couple of screwed-up provisions – called “riders” -- as concessions to conservative House members. One affects light bulb energy savings, of all things.  This light bulb rider says that the U.S. Department of Energy cannot spend any money to enforce or… [read post]

Deron Lovaas, Federal Transportation Policy Director, Washington, D.C. As I've written, I'm proud of my home state of Maryland and its clear commitment to delivering transportation choices other than driving to its citizens, for the sake of quality of life and the environment. However, here as elsewhere I find conventional wisdom which isn't wise at all. Take, for example, a conversation an Advisory Committee meeting for Maryland's annual "Attainment Report,"… [read post]
