As an Alabama appellate lawyer, I often encounter people who want to withdraw their guilty plea in a criminal case. These defendants often say they showed up to go to trial on their criminal charges, only to have their lawyer pressure them into taking a plea bargain at the last minute. After having a little [...] [read post]

Cara published a terrific summary of  a tentative California superior court decision in which the court held that the state’s Air Resources Board (CARB) violated  the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) in implementing AB 32, the state’s landmark climate change legislation.  The CEQA portion of the ruling — should the judge stick with it when he finalizes his decision — is a setback for efforts to implement California’s law.  But I think it’s worth emphasizing that it’s… [read post]

The California Jobs Initiative is spreading a highly misleading story about PG&E's opposition to Prop 23, the ballot measure to suspend California's keystone climate legislation (AB 32). The story appears in an email that they've circulated widely. To make it easy to understand, I'm leaving the truthful parts of their story in black and putting the false parts in red: PG&E recently announced its opposition to Prop. 23. Now, many of you are receiving notices from PG&E that they are… [read post]

In short order, Connecticut has just jumped to the front of the line when it comes to increasing the minimum wage. On Wednesday, March 26th, the General Assembly passed an increase to the minimum wage in Connecticut. This will amend the previous increases that had been negotiated last year and raises the minimum wage past the $10 mark. Senate Bill 32 can be downloaded here.  Governor Malloy is expected to sign the bill into law Thursday evening. There are three major… [read post]

One interesting feature of the court decision preventing the state from moving forward with AB 32 is that the court’s decision seems to halt implementation of the entire scoping plan.  As I’ll explain, this is an odd result, and one that may be legally required but doesn’t make practical sense. The legal flaw the court found in the scoping plan – and the part of the plan the frustrates the environmental justice organizations that filed the lawsuit – is that the Air Resources Board… [read post]

Good news, T&E Community, particularly for fiduciaries: 2009 investment advisory fees charged to nongrantor trusts or to estates continue to be fully deductible without regard to the two percent floor under section 67(a) of the Code. IRS Notice 2010-32 extends the interim guidance provided in Notice 2008-116 and Notice 2008-32 regarding investment advisory costs subject to the 2 percent “floor” under section 67(a) that are integrated into a single fiduciary fee paid to a trustee or executor (a… [read post]

Several of the bloggers on Legal Planet have been commenting extensively on the recent California court decision that will block the California Air Resources Board from moving forward with its AB 32 Scoping Plan and related regulations.  I’ve provided links below to a series of our posts on this decision. The court, ruling on a lawsuit brought by environmental justice advocates under the California Environmental Quality Act,  found that the ARB’s adoption of its scoping plan  – created by… [read post]

Just after midnight on Tuesday December 3, 2013 a 45 year old man, Ignacio Mesa was attacked by three pit bulls on Crump Street near 32nd Street in Forth Worth (the approximate area of attack is shown in the map below). The attack left Mr. Mesa hospitalized from several bite wounds. His 26-year old daughter, in an effort to help him was bitten by these aggressive dogs as well. Officials think Mr. Mesa may have been attacked as he was out searching for his own dog. Interestingly enough, according to… [read post]

As Cara wrote yesterday, a California court has put AB 32 on hold temporarily on the grounds that in preparing its scoping plan, the California Air Resources Board failed to assess alternatives to its plan with appropriate detail.  In particular, the court took issue with CARB’s failure , under the California Environmental Quality Act, to assess carbon taxes as an alternative to an economy wide cap and trade scheme (though as both Cara and I have written, the court case should at worst delay AB… [read post]

This post was written by Phillip H. Babich. San Francisco Superior Court Judge Ernest H. Goldsmith heard arguments on December 7, 2012 in a lawsuit challenging the carbon offset program in California. (Case No. CGC-12-519554). The lawsuit is aimed at invalidating the offset program, but it has the potential to increase compliance costs (perhaps significantly) for California’s Cap-and-Trade Program, a greenhouse gas emission-reduction program. Judge Goldsmith’s court room was filled to… [read post]

In recent weeks, our office has been contacted more and more by people looking for information about filing a claim against their attorney under Rule 32 of the Alabama Rules of Criminal Procedure.  Not to be confused with Rule 32 of the Alabama Rules of Judicial Administration which deals with child support, Rule 32 of the Alabama Rules of Criminal Procedure provides a method for defendants to challenge their conviction in a trial court.  It is normally filed after a defendant has already lost his… [read post]
