Under appropriate circumstances, New Jersey law [Rule 1:38-3(d)] permits certain cases to be "anonymized" through the use of initials, instead of full names. L.C. v. V.C., New Jersey App. Div., August 2, 2012 [read post]

NOT CHARGED – Minor in Possession/Consumption of Alcohol, State v. Mr. S. (DMC No. 7064) (City of Tempe): Mr. S. was in a vehicle with his friends on Mill Avenue with an open container in his hand when a bicycle cop rode up. He told the driver of the vehicle to pull over, and then he questioned the occupants about their ages. We were able to show that there was no reasonable suspicion to stop, and the decision was made not to file charges by the Tempe City Prosecutor’s Office. [read post]

We previously posted about the "Hot Coffee" documentary by Susan Saladoff, which exposes how corporations, like big insurance companies, spend millions of dollars so that injury victims do not receive fair trials and are not fairly compensated for their personal injury damages. They have used one case, the "McDonalds coffee" case, to brainwash the general public (including jurors and politicians) into believing there are too many frivolous lawsuits and that lawsuits cause prices and insurance rates… [read post]

NOT CHARGED – Discharging a Firearm, State v. Mr. G. (DMC No.7184): Mr. G. had been accused by his boss of displaying a weapon with a suppressor and firing it into the canal while at a construction job site. He had been terminated from the job site after the police report was made. We were able to show that his boss did not actually witness any of the allegations, and probably made up the accusations in order to have a reason to fire Mr. G. No charges were ever brought against him. [read post]

NOT CHARGED – Concealed Weapon Violation, State v. Mr. S. (DMC No. 6979): Mr. S. was a motorcycle rider who was stopped near Flagstaff, Arizona. The police felt that he was wearing a jacket that would be indicative of belonging to a motorcycle gang. Upon a search, a concealed weapon was discovered on Mr. S.’s property. We were able to argue that this concealed weapon (brass knuckles) was actually a belt buckle. We also argued that there was no reasonable suspicion to stop Mr. S. in the… [read post]

So, I was greeted this morning to a blog article from the Rick Scott camp: "SunshineNews: Ales Sink Caught Lying…" This is apparently the Scott campaign's $1.7 billion retort. There was a link to a CNN Clip that would, as Mr. Scott's campaign claimed, demonstrate that what she heard the makeup artist say to her was not what she heard the makeup artist say to her. OK, I confess that I tried 5 times to get the CNN clip to load and it would not. Can someone at the Scott campaign check the link? I… [read post]

It is an insidious evil that quite often strikes children and young adults. It is a disease that strikes one person every four minutes. It kills someone every ten minutes. It is a class of diseases called Leukemia and Lymphoma. The treatment is grueling and tough. The journey through treatment is long and the patient and family members both share their own particular suffering. Patients suffer physically, emotionally and psychologically. Long strides have been made in both treatment and survival in… [read post]

During our past hurricanes, I found that I could actually get along without power for a few days, but doing without water was not something I could take. When a hurricane hits and we lose power, we in the Farms communities also lose water. So, when we built our house, I bit the bullet and had a generator installed with a propane tank to run it. As a result of this very significant investment and the fact that, possibly for one of the few times in my life, I was actually prepared, I gained added… [read post]

Whatever visions the words blue and late night may have conjured in your mind before, we now know that blue can keep us up late into the night. A recent Chicago Tribune article sets forth medical evidence from the AMA, Harvard and Stanford, about sleep disorders for those addicted to late night use of tablets, laptops and smart phone devices. Apparently, this new evidence points to the fact that 'melatonin', a naturally produced hormone in our body that helps us regulate sleep, is not sufficiently… [read post]

This Saturday is Saint Patrick's Day, a holiday recognizing Saint Patrick, a patron saint of Ireland. As the holiday is often associated with the lifting of restrictions on drinking alcohol, this is a day that many people will be drinking throughout Los Angeles County. This holiday, combined with the rain showers that are expected throughout the weekend, can lead to heightened car accident dangers on the roads. We at Gary K. Walch, A Law Corporation, wish to remind our readers to be extra… [read post]

In 1975, the Medical Injury Compensation Reform Act ("MICRA") was set into law in California. This law unfairly limits the amount of money that a victim of medical malpractice can receive for his or her pain and suffering to only $250,000. This amount has not gone up with inflation in 38 years and is the limit regardless of how severe the injury and malpractice. For example, if a doctor were to negligently remove the wrong leg of a patient, the pain and suffering of the crippled patient is… [read post]

Great news!! From the Naples News, Rick Scott's "hometown" newspaper. If elected as governor of Florida, Rick Scott says he will "recuse" himself from any involvement in a state investigation of one of his companies, Solantic Health Care. He is still going to appoint the head of the agency who will conduct the investigations into his company, but he will "recuse" himself from involvement. Uh, huh. Solantic is currently under investigation by the state's the Department of Health after being sent to… [read post]

I am not a native Floridian, but I love Florida; I was simply born in the wrong state. I get that our state is a "mixing pot" for people from many different places. But, I object to someone running for the highest office in our state who only arrived here a little over (7) years ago. I have concerns about a man running for governor of Florida who, in a deposition under oath, said he does not know where the following places are located: Orange County Seminole County Brevard and County Lake County… [read post]

Consumers are clearly not the focus of the current group that was elected to the legislature. Insurance companies and large corporations seem to be the acknowledged constituents for them. The Sun Sentinel just reported on some of the bills that look like they could pass and how they stack up against the best interests of consumers (voters): Insurance companies can charge as much as they want to charge for coverage of sinkhole damages or they can drop sinkhole coverage altogether. Great news for… [read post]

I can not remember who said it, but it speaks volumes about people who give of themselves through volunteering to help others: "If you insist on measuring yourself, place the tape around your heart rather than your head." We are in very tough economic times. Everyone is feeling the loss of money, jobs, retirement, your home. What we once were able to give as contributions to charitable cause or event, is now going to pay the mortgage or feed our family. We want to help those less fortunate, but we… [read post]
