In France, there is no requirement for uniformed and plainclothes police officers to display their name or their administrative number or to show their police card upon request. Furthermore, the name and number of the police officer are not on the side of the card shown to the public [pic]. Some police officers are also using masks, hoods and scarfs to hide their identity, which is an infraction punished by a fine of up to €150 and a mandatory “citizenship class” (article 1 of Law… [read post]

On March 31, 2012 the Massachusetts version of the Uniform Probate Code (“MUPC”) went into effect. The MUPC changes the entire process for probating an estate here in Massachusetts. Not only did it overhaul the type of Court proceeding used to probate an estate, but it also alters who inherits property for those people who die intestate (without a Will). Below are a few examples of the changes created by the new law. Changes in Intestacy Laws: For anyone who dies without a Will, the distribution… [read post]

Car accidents are expensive. In 2012, the average auto liability claim for property damage was $3,073 and for bodily injury was $14,653. These are only averages, however, and all claims are different depending on the degree of damage and injury.  Additionally the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has stated that the cost of medical care and productivity losses associated with car accidents is over $99 billion a year. If you are in a minor-impact crash will your car insurance company… [read post]

  With long-term care insurance policies, the costs of assisted living facilities, in-home care and private nursing homes are covered. And, in many cases, these policies offer inflation protection, too. But since not many eligible consumers are signing up for policies, the companies that offer them are trying to make them more palatable. It is an unfortunate fact that healthcare costs are steadily rising and will only continue to rise in the… [read post]

One of the most common trial objections is “Objection, non-responsive,” an objection which is often followed up by a motion to strike or to instruct the jury to disregard.  Yet, conspicuously absent from the Texas Rules of Evidence is any rule providing that non-responsive answers are inadmissible or subject to exclusion.  The fact is, many non-responsive answers may be properly received into evidence, and when a court declines to exclude or strike a non-responsive answer, oftentimes no error… [read post]

Perhaps the best summary ever written appears in the Hitchhiker’s Guide, a fictitious travel guide touted in Douglas Adams’ humorous five-part “trilogy,” Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, as the most comprehensive source of information on intergalactic space travel destinations. In the Guide, planet Earth is summed up in two words: “Mostly harmless.” Summaries are a very efficient means of communication.  They can also be an effective evidentiary tool at trial, especially when a jury,… [read post]

I find that many attorneys take certain things for granted when it comes to the process of establishing legal guardianship over someone.  They do this because guardianship is their day to day life. It is easy to forget that a client walking in the door generally has no idea what guardianship actually means, how the process works or what would be expected of them if they are appointed guardian of their loved one.Over the next few weeks I am going to be posting a series of entries that explains the… [read post]

Last month, I wrote a review of the service Repost.us in which I said that I loved the service (which I still do) but that I felt it and the entire notion of embedding articles had a tremendous uphill battle. In short, I laid out the graveyard of companies that had come before Repost.Us, including noting that the “launch” of Repost.Us was actually a relaunch of the service, which actually began life under two other names. Basically, though embedding media content, such as YouTube videos,… [read post]

This week, the House of Representatives approved a bill to fast track civil lawsuits filed by Congress against President Barack Obama for allegedly abusing his powers. The bill does raise some interesting constitutional questions, but it also faces steep challenges. Trey Gowdy Before the constitutional questions, there is the basic political question of how the bill, proposed as the Enforce The Law Act by Representative Trey Gowdy, would clear a Senate with a Democratic majority. And then there is… [read post]

  Late last week, Bank of America petitioned the California Court of Appeals for a re-hearing of the Glaski case, which the court had recently decided, subsequently publishing its written opinion. The filing for petition for re-hearing should not have been surprising, as it was based in large part on several fairly obvious flaws related to the written decision, not the least of which was the fact that the trust in question was not one governed by New York’s Estates Powers and Trust Law… [read post]
