Ad rules making their way to the board

first_img Ad rules making their way to the board Senior Editor The Bar’s Advertising Task Force 2004 has spent hundreds of hours reviewing and redrafting advertising regulations, but there will still be serious policy issues left for the Bar Board of Governors to decide.“It will be this body’s final decision to look at the policy issues,” said board member Chobee Ebbets, who is also vice chair of the task force.Ebbets was responding to a question at the board’s recent meeting. A board member asked if the task force considered what to do about pending grievances under current rules that might not be violations after changes that could be proposed by the task force and approved by the board and the Supreme Court.“What to do with old complaints. Will we need more Bar staff [to review ads]? All of those things are going to be on our plate,” Ebbets said. “There was a limit to what the task force could do.. . . “We’re going to have a long and lengthy debate on this.”Task force Chair Manny Morales gave a detailed summary of the task force’s preliminary recommendations, which are published on the Bar’s Web site at www.flabar.org.He said the task force is getting feedback on the proposals and will hold a public hearing on the morning of January 20 at the Bar’s Midyear Meeting in Miami. That afternoon the task force will attempt to hammer out its final recommendations, which could be presented to the board preliminarily the following week when it meets in Key West.The goal, Morales said, is for the board to take final action on the rules at its early April meeting in Tallahassee or its early June meeting in Palm Beach. After that, the amendments will go to the Supreme Court.Aside from Ebbets’ comments, Morales said the task force is presenting options on two controversial issues for the board’s ultimate decision.One is whether to extend the 30-day ban on direct mail advertising in personal injury cases to criminal defense and civil traffic ticket mailings. The other is whether the rules should require lawyers to submit their nonexempt ads to the Bar for review before they are published or broadcast. (Ads that provide only certain basic information do not have to be submitted for review.)On extending the 30-day direct mailing ban, Morales said the task force may make a recommendation instead of presenting options. “We have gotten more mail and e-mails about this particular issue from the criminal defense bar and lawyers involved with civil traffic infractions than anything else,” he said. “My personal judgment is we’re probably going to leave the rule the way it is, that it only applies to the personal injury cases. But again, we’ll decide that in January.”At the request of the board, the task force did add an option requiring prepublication review of nonexempt ads, Morales said, although that came by an 8-7 vote. Other options are to keep the present system where ads must be submitted no later than the first publication or broadcast or implementing an incentive system. The latter provides that a lawyer who has an ad approved before using it would get a guarantee he or she would not receive a grievance prosecution if a violation was later discovered, as long as the ad did not have a deliberate falsehood that was found after the ad was approved.“It makes it clear that a lawyer who wants a safe harbor should submit the ad and have it okayed,” Morales said. “Looking at the whole scheme, that’s probably the best practice for any advertising lawyer to follow.”Board members had a variety of questions and observations.Board member Warren Lindsey questioned the need to extend the 30-day ban in direct mail to criminal cases. If that is done, he suggested that lawyers should be limited to defendants who are not already represented by counsel. Morales noted that could cause some enforcement difficulties in determining whether a lawyer had made an innocent mistake.Board member Nancy Gregoire said she agreed with a conclusion of the Citizens Forum (see story, page 1) that lawyer Web sites should be subject to the same regulations as print and electronic ads. The task force is recommending that Web sites be treated as information provided at the request of a potential client, which would exempt them from most advertising regulations.“Because of search engines, it’s just like they’re flipping through the Yellow Pages and up comes your site,” she said. “I think this is too close to the line.”In answering a question from board member Steven Chaykin, Morales said the task force is recommending the elimination of the required hiring disclosure language in print ads because task force members feel it no longer serves any purpose.Board member Ian Comisky said he was concerned about First Amendment issues that could be raised by the revisions.“I think the task force needs to take a First Amendment prism to the entire set of rules so we don’t pass new rules that are immediately challenged,” he said.Other changes being considered, Morales told the board, include:• Expanding what can be included in an ad that does not require review by the Bar.• Making it clear that advertising rules do not apply to communications between lawyers, communications with family members, and communications with current or former clients.• Dropping the prohibition of language that creates unjustified expectations. Morales said that is covered by other parts of the rules, and it was difficult creating a definition for that term.• Clarifying to lawyers that their ads cannot guarantee results.• Dropping the requirement that a lawyer must state in an ad that he or she intends to refer a case to another lawyer. “We decided that it’s better to have a lawyer refer a case than attempting to do it if it’s not their area of practice,” Morales said.

Great Neck Lawyer Admits Stealing $800K from Clients

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York An elder law attorney from Great Neck has admitted to stealing $797,332 from her clients—five times the amount that authorities said she stole when she was arrested nearly two years ago.Martha Brosius, 50, pleaded guilty Monday at Nassau County court to two counts of grand larceny and a charge of scheme to defraud. Queens prosecutors are handling the case due to the fact that Brosius’ husband works for the Nassau County District Attorney’s office, which requested a special prosecutor to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest.“The defendant has admitted to breaching her fiduciary duty and unjustly enriching herself at the expense of her clients,” said Queens District Attorney Richard Brown. “Under the terms of the guilty plea in which she admitted her guilt, the defendant will sign a confession of judgment to begin the process of making her victims financially whole and faces the prospect of serious prison time.”Brosius was originally accused of stealing about $150,000 from four clients, but was later indicted on charges of stealing about $700,000 when more victims were uncovered, the Press has reported.As part of Brosius’ plea deal, she admitted to stealing from two additional victims that were not part of her indictment. Investigators said a total of 12 clients were victimized in the case.Prosecutors suggested that Brosius be sentenced to six-to-18 years in prison, but Judge Helene Gugerty recommended that she be sentenced to 4-12 years in addition to ordering her to pay restitution.Brosius is scheduled to be sentenced on Aug. 12.Her Garden City-based attorney, Marc Gann, previously told the Press that she had retired from practicing law.last_img read more

H1N1 vaccination to be required for US military

first_imgSep 2, 2009 (CIDRAP News) – Vaccination against the pandemic H1N1 influenza will be required for all uniformed US military personnel, with the immunizations starting in early October, the Department of Defense (DoD) announced yesterday.In a news release, Army Lt. Col. Wayne Hachey, the department’s director of preventive medicine, said vaccination will be mandatory for uniformed personnel and will be available to all military family members who want it.DoD expects to receive 1 million doses of the vaccine in early October and another 1.7 million doses later in the month, the release said.First in line for the vaccine will be healthcare workers, deploying troops, those serving on ships and submarines, and new recruits, according to DoD.”Any place where we take a lot of people, squash them all together and get them nice and close and put them under stressful conditions will get the vaccine,” Hachey said.To distribute the vaccine, he said, the military will use its usual seasonal flu vaccine distribution chain, a system in use for decades.He noted that a decision is still awaited on whether each person will need one dose or two. “The assumption right now is that people will need two doses, 21 days apart. That may change,” he said. Federal officials are awaiting early results of clinical trials for guidance on the number of doses.DoD already has seasonal flu vaccine and will begin giving the immunizations soon, Hachey said. “That has been our message to immunizers: to try and get as many people as they can immunized against the season flu early.”The civilian immunization program for H1N1 is expected to start in mid October.See also:Sep 1 DoD press releasehttp://www.defenselink.mil/news/newsarticle.aspx?id=55698last_img read more

Support candidates who support seniors

first_imgCategories: Letters to the Editor, OpinionEarlier this year, several neighbors and I along Helderberg Avenue had an opportunity to sell our homes and help create the Village at Whispering Pines, a unique community for our senior citizens.Many will say I speak from a self-interest. While true, as I would have made a small profit, I did so more for the prospect of being a part of something that Rotterdam needs — a senior community with memory care, assisted and independent living, one-family homes, townhouses, a golf course, as well as leisure activities.The senior citizens of Rotterdam deserve the right to receive care in their hometown, a town they built. If it wasn’t for them, Rotterdam would not be the place it is today.So, as you vote this year for our supervisor and Town Board, I ask you to consider re-electing Supervisor Steve Tommasone and electing Rachel Rappazzo and Stephen Signore for Town Board.

Forced bank mergers last resort in safeguarding Indonesia’s financial sector: OJK

first_imgRead also: Small banks could be forced to merge under new regulation, OJK says“If it’s only one or two institutions and they do not cause negative sentiment in the financial sector, of course, we can still handle this with business-as-usual ways,” he added.Article 23 of the Government Regulation in lieu of law (Perppu) No. 1/2020 states that the OJK has the authority to “give written orders to financial service institutions to conduct merger, consolidation, acquisition, integration and/or conversion processes”.Failure to follow the instruction of the OJK by a corporation could lead to imprisonment and a fine of at least Rp 1 trillion (US$61.4 million). The sanctions are stricter compared with only administrative ones regulated in an OJK regulation in 2019. President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo signed the Perppu, which activates crisis protocols and provides leeway for his administration to afford the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, among other things, as the disease has disrupted business activity and hit the country’s vulnerable population.Wimboh stressed that other measures, such as stake sales and purchases and allowing Bank Indonesia (BI) to act as the lender of last resort, would be taken first before resorting to the merger scenario.Read also: Explainer: BI to throw lifeline to Indonesia’s economy to fight COVID-19Acting as the lender of last resort means that the central bank offers loans to banks and other financial institutions that are experiencing financial difficulties or are considered highly risky and near collapse.Previously, experts and economists expressed confidence that forced mergers would only be used as a last resort. Institute for Development of Economics and Finance (Indef) deputy director Eko Listiyanto said there were other methods for rescuing nonperforming banks, such as management restructuring.“In a worst-case scenario where banks fail, the OJK could merge the banks in accordance with the new regulation,” Eko said. Topics : A regulation to force small and struggling banks to consolidate would be the last resort in efforts to safeguard Indonesia’s financial industry amid heightening economic risks, according to Financial Services Authority (OJK) chairman Wimboh Santoso.He said during a teleconferenced meeting with House of Representatives Commission XI overseeing financial affairs on Tuesday that the “preemptive measure” was aimed at preventing the financial sector situation from worsening and to safeguard public confidence during times of crisis.“This is just in case [we need it]. It doesn’t mean that we have to do it,” Wimboh said, adding that the mechanism would only come into play if there was a foreseeable possibility of widespread collapse among Indonesia’s financial institutions.last_img read more

Governor Wolf Announces 17 Alternative Fuel Incentive Grants for Pennsylvania Schools, Businesses, and Municipalities

first_img Energy,  Environment,  Press Release,  Results Harrisburg, PA – Governor Tom Wolf today announced that the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) awarded grants to 17 alternative fuel projects that will save an estimated 650 million gallons of fuel in Pennsylvania. These Alternative Fuel Incentive Grants (AFIG) will be used to develop and promote the use of alternative fuels and develop supporting infrastructure, improving air quality through alternative fuel use.“The AFIG program has made tremendous strides in reducing air pollution, improving the quality of the air we breathe, and paying economic dividends through a reduction in the use of gasoline,” said Governor Wolf. “These grants are awarded to a wide range of projects, both large and small. From purchasing two alternative fuel vehicles to converting entire fleets, these projects show a commitment to make changes that will benefit all Pennsylvanians.”Nearly $2 million in grants were awarded across the two categories. The awards for vehicles will save approximately 650 thousand gallons of gasoline and diesel fuel annually. A full list of awardees is below. This is the final awarding of AFIG funding for applications submitted in 2016. Nearly $5.5 million was awarded to 43 projects for the calendar year. DEP expects to reopen the AFIG program with next the application submission date due early this summer.“Places like Lycoming County and the River Valley Transit system will save money on fuel costs and cut down on air pollution, and the Philadelphia Airport will be able to serve customers with electric vehicles with new charging stations,” said Acting DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell.The primary goals of the Alternative Fuels Incentive Grant Program are to improve Pennsylvania’s air quality and reduce consumption of imported oil through the use of alternative fuels that will help the commonwealth’s economy and environment. DEP accepts applications for innovative, advanced fuel and vehicle technology projects resulting in a cleaner and greener transportation sector within the Commonwealth. The AFIG Fund was established under Act 166 of 1992 and is administered by the DEP through the Office of Policy.In addition to the Alternative Fuel Incentive Grants just awarded, DEP is offering a limited number of free technical assistance opportunities to municipalities, school districts, municipal authorities, and non-profit organizations to assist them in developing plans for building or expanding an alternative energy vehicle fleet.

Thrills and spills Saturday at Off Road Speedway

first_imgBy Randy PospishilNORFOLK, Neb. (June 11) – Thrills and spills may be a racing sports cliche, but the terminology describes the racing at the Off Road Speedway last Saturday night.Side-by-side racing is commonplace, and three-wide is frequent, but on several occasions during Saturday’s feature races on the ‘dry slick’ Norfolk track spectators were treated to cars aligned four-wide across the track.The result was multi-car spin-outs and, in the case of the IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stocks, a rollover.Tracy Buck earned his first Off Road Speedway win in that division by taking the lead with six laps remaining and surviving two cautions, including the rollover, and then holding off Austin Brauner. Nate DeSive finished third.Chad Bruns will remain at the top of the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car standings after his second fea­ture win in the division. Bruns went side-by-side with Ron Pettitt for three laps before denying Pet­titt his third Off Road Speedway win. Pettitt’s son Tanner finished a distant third.Four cautions kept the cars close together throughout the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod fea­ture. Derik Fox led all but the last lap before being edged at the finish line by Justin Addison as the two cars came out of turn four and crossed the finish line together … not only side-by-side but also in contact with each other. Kyle Prauner finished third.Ramsey Meyer’s Mach-1 Sport Compact win was his fourth in six races at Off Road Speedway and will contribute to his nation-leading point total in the division.last_img read more
