Yesterday, I posted about the struggles of Gital Dodelson, a 25 year old New Jersey resident who is fighting to obtain a Get – the bill which the husband gives to the wife in order to free her to marry again. Therein, I noted that remedies under New Jersey law are limited, at best, when a husband refuses to grant his wife a religious divorce.  Indeed, the court in Afalo v. Afalo (1996), stated that this was, in part, because to compel a Get would be judicial entanglement in religious… [read post]

By Michael Reiter, Attorney at Law Too many people go to law school with goals that are not necessarily, in my humble opinion, conducive to being happy, productive member of the legal community.  Before considering spending money to become an attorney, no matter the path, young people in the United States should ask themselves, “Why do I want to be a lawyer?”  Law can be a difficult profession, not at all like what you might see in television and the movies.  One thing… [read post]

On February 19, Associated Press reported that Hera McLeod, mother of a 15-month-old boy who drowned while in his father’s care, is suing the psychologist who suggested the visitation.  The court-ordered unsupervised visitation came after Margaret Wong, a psychologist who evaluated the boy’s father, told the judge that visitation would be appropriate.

By Michael Reiter, Attorney at Law Yesterday, I posted this appearance by “the Sword” on August 21, 1989 at the Mayor and Common Council hearing: PUBLIC COMMENTS – THE SWORD A citizen identifying himself as the Anti- Christ Spiritual Leader of the House of Ying, also known as the Sword, appeared before the Council with a mask. He stated that the mask is to prevent a robbery, not to commit one. He spoke regarding time allotted at Council Meetings for public comments. City Attorney… [read post]

Venable LLP's Randy Shaheen and Amy Mudge might just be prime candidates for guest posts on Bank Lawyer's Blog. A recent "All About Advertising Law" post launched a snark attack that made this blogger proud. The victim was every banker's bête noire, the CFPB, and the cause for the caustic comments was the CFPB's apparent hypocrisy. According to the American Banker, an outspoken critic of indirect auto lenders, Harry Douglas Lane, was in the audience at a recent CFPB forum and was called upon… [read post]

Being brown is one of my best attributes, and it’s one of my favorite topics of discussion. It’s fundamental to my identity and has always affected many of my perspectives, beliefs, and decisions. But when I was younger, no one was expected to talk about race and without the internet (do I sound old?), it was easy to ignore. Then I went to WashU, where everyone wanted to talk about race, and it seemed like people were generally more aware and more thoughtful in their discussions, plus it… [read post]

In the past, Massachusetts legislators have proposed legislation that would ban the enforcement of non-competition agreements in Massachusetts, but no such law has yet passed. Last week, Governor Deval Patrick announced that he would propose similar legislation as part of an economic growth bill, in an effort to remove the barriers that non-compete agreements create for workers in high-tech companies who wish to open their own competing business. As we have previously discussed, Massachusetts law… [read post]

I was having a conversation with a colleague the other day about the fact that there does not seem to be a clear set of norms about copying from another attorney’s brief.  Suppose I were working on a case and I read a brief that made a particular point really well.  If I cited that brief in an attempt to fairly attribute the source when I made the same point, then I’d look like an uncreative doofus.  If I did not cite the brief, though, then that would (or could) be… [read post]

A friend of mine, leading Tampa Bay collaborative attorney, and fellow member of Next Generation Divorce George Melendez recently wrote a blog post after he and I had a discussion on how collaborative family law practice can help members of various faith communities.  George has made it his mission to communicate with clergy that divorce and custody issues effect not only the parties and their children, but also the community at large. Though dealing with divorce in any process will be… [read post]

Institute for Money, Technology and Financial Inclusion On Monday evening, Re/code wrote about the complicated set of rules that the FCC's wireless bureau is hoping will be adopted for the TV spectrum auction that will take place in 2015. According to these restrictions, carriers with lots of spectrum like AT&T, Verizon, and Sprint could be prohibited from bidding on up to one-third of the auctioned-off spectrum in a given area, at least when the bidding in… [read post]
