The new legislation described in this post is aimed at streamlining Indiana’s complex regulatory process and eliminating some of the overlap between IDEM and DNR. SEA 271 authorizes a study of the water resources in the state and the impact they have on economic development and rural Indiana, in particular agriculture. The bill requires a review of government structure for water management and how state and local entities can better coordinate activities. It states that the legislative council… [read post]

The United States Citizenship & Immigration Services yesterday announced that they had received 172,500 H-1B applications (i.e. petitions for skilled workers) for an annual available limit of 85,000 visas; thereby leaving hundreds of employers, and US educated, talented, skilled employees unable to remain here. Why or how does this make sense to those in Congress and Government who continue to deny the need for Immigration reform? The U.S at this time is in dire need of talented individuals… [read post]

There are several courts within Kaufman County, but only two of them hear divorce, custody, Child Protective Service (CPS), and IV-D or Attorney General cases.  If you file for divorce or custody in Kaufman County, the case would be filed in the Kaufman County District Clerk’s office and then the clerk randomly assigns the cases between the 86th Judicial District Court and the 422nd Judicial District Court.  Because of this random assignment, you cannot choose which court your case… [read post]

Thanks to Deven, Gerard, and everyone else at Concurring Opinions for the warm welcome.  I plan to blog a bit about the new book, America’s Forgotten Constitutions, as well as some matters related to ongoing research. A few words about the conception of the book.  It combines American history and legal theory in a way that I hope tells us some new things about events and ideas that have already received some scholarly attention.  It also analyzes some events in constitutionally… [read post]

I blogged last year about an IPO for a football player – the public offering of a share of the right to receive 20% of Arian Foster’s future football-related income.  There is a movement afoot now to introduce this concept in a much broader way:  the sale of a share of future earnings as a means for college students to finance their education, as an alternative to incurring student debt.  The current state of affairs is summarized in this Slate article. The main advantage… [read post]

The submission of this data, as dictated by the Physician Payment Sunshine Act, is intended to highlight certain financial relationships between the manufacturers and GPOs and physicians. With some exceptions,… [read post]

The lawsuits continue to be filed in the case where 10,000 gallons of chemicals spilled into the Elk River, tainting the drinking water of 300,000 West Virginia residents. The latest lawsuit is a class action like the others, with Summer and Robert Johnson of Charleston listed as the named plaintiffs, and Freedom Industries (which has filed for bankruptcy), West Virginia American Water, American Water Works, and Eastman Chemical named as defendants. Since Freedom Industries is in Chapter 11… [read post]

The United States Army put the 36 year-old man in handcuffs. They isolated him in a six-by-eight foot cell. The lights were kept on all night, and loud heavy metal music often blared, ensuring the man would remain sleep-deprived. They denied him food and showers for lengthy periods of time.  The guards would ridicule and humiliate him nearly constantly.  Whenever the man became angry or despondent, the guards would hold him down and inject him with sedatives. The Army was trying to force… [read post]

On the surface, the issue of liability in a bar room brawl would seemingly be limited to those involved. However, the Florida Supreme Court in Dorsey v. Reider ruled that third parties can be held liable where the plaintiff can show those parties owed the plaintiff a legal duty of care, and that this duty was breached. As West Palm Beach personal injury lawyers, we know that a criminal assault can leave a victim wounded for life. It's important in these cases to explore the legal culpability of… [read post]

Barbara S. MishkinA bill to require the CFPB to establish a small business advisory board was recently introduced by Republican Congressmen Robert Pittenger and Denny Heck.  H.R. 4383, entitled the “Bureau of Consumer Financial Protection Small Business Advisory Board Act,” would establish a board comprised of at least 12 members who are “representatives of small business concerns that provide eligible financial products or services.”  The board would be… [read post]

Bill O’Reilly dropped by the show last night to plug his new “The Last Days of Jesus.”  I asked him about the perennial (and accurate) complaint that MSM ignores the best-selling books of the center-right.  His response, and the response of Politico’s media reporter Dylan Byers, is below.  Not surprisingly, for Byers is fair, Byers concedes the double standard and the bias.  It has operated most obviously against O’Reilly’s books and… [read post]

Since 1992, the Thomas Jefferson Center for the Protection of Free Expression has celebrated the birth and ideals of its namesake by calling attention to those who in the past year forgot or disregarded Mr. Jefferson’s admonition that freedom of speech “cannot be limited without being lost.” Announced on or near April 13—the anniversary of the birth of Thomas Jefferson—the Jefferson Muzzles are awarded as a means to draw national attention to abridgments of free speech… [read post]

It’s my understanding that WAPT in Jackson is touting an exclusive interview with former Judge Bobby DeLaughter on tonight’s 10:00 p.m. newscast. Maybe I can stay up late enough to watch it. With my horrible Comcast DVR and cable service,  there is only about a 30% chance that my box will actually record it.     [read post]

In a post here in February, I reviewed The Firm Directory from Neudesic Pulse, a product I described as like a law firm’s private LinkedIn. The product allows firms to create a searchable, internal directory that captures and manages information about its lawyers skills and proficiencies. It is targeted at larger firms of 200 or […] The post Exclusive: Pricing Revealed for Neudesic’s ‘The Firm Directory’ appeared first on Robert Ambrogi's LawSites. [read post]
