  • Emotional Support Animal or "Fake" Service Dog Attacks - You Could Be a Victim

    CityWatch Los Angeles ^ | april 2, 2018 | Phyllis M. Daugherty
    ANIMAL WATCH-Any dog attack is alarming, painful and can cause lasting injury -- whether it is by a Pit Bull or a Chihuahua--regardless of whether victims are merely knocked down or the animal sinks its teeth into their flesh. Plus, there are other victims in every attack--family members, witnesses, those who try to stop the attack, employers, and landlords or business owners on whose property the incident occurs. There have been two reported attacks by dogs on airlines in the past year: In June 2017, a man was mauled by an emotional support dog on a Delta Air Lines flight...
  • The pretense is over that the Mueller investigation is still about Russian campaign collusion

    Legal Insurrection ^ | 04/03/2018 | William A. Jacobson
    NY Times Editorial: If Trump “has nothing illegal or untoward to hide, why does he care about the [attorney-client] privilege in the first place?” There isn’t much of a pretense anymore that the Mueller investigation is about alleged Russian campaign collusion. Maybe it started out about collusion, but it veered off course within a couple of months, when Mueller decided that Paul Manafort needed to be investigated for conduct many years ago having nothing to do with the campaign, or even Russia. Rod Rosenstein created the paperwork in early August 2017 to retroactively expand Mueller’s investigation and justify Mueller conduct...

    The cardinal's comments came even as the Supreme Court had recently observed that the charges against the cardinal were of a very serious nature. [Photo] Cardinal George Alencherry KOCHI: Cardinal George Alencherry, who is at the centre of the controversial land deals of the Ernakulam-Angamaly archdiocese, has said the legal system of the country should not interfere in the Canon laws. Speaking after the Good Friday Mass at the Kokkamangalam St. Thomas Church in Alappuzha, Cardinal Alenchery, Major Archbishop of the Syro-Malabar Church, said it was the "duty of the citizen to obey the rule of law existing in the country,...
  • Trump attorney John Dowd resigns amid shake-up in president’s legal team

    John Dowd, a personal attorney to President Trump, resigned his post Thursday amid a shake-up in the president’s legal team as Trump has sought more firepower to deal with the special counsel’s Russia investigation. The resignation came Thursday, according to three people familiar with the decision. Dowd declined to comment. Dowd’s departure was a largely mutual decision made after the president lost confidence in his ability to handle special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation and Dowd became frustrated with Trump’s recent efforts to bring on new attorneys, they said. In recent weeks, Dowd clashed with the president, including an...
  • Legal Complaint Filed Against Hillary for $84 Million Money-Laundering Scam

    This year seems to end on a very interesting note. We just got word that a Federal Elections Committee complaint was filed by the Committee to Defend the President against the Hillary Victory Fund (HVF), also known as Hillary Clinton’s campaign organization, but that’s not all. The complaint also mentions state Democratic parties, the Democratic National Committee and a number of DEM mega donors. The ironically named Hillary Victory Fund asked for six figure donations from Democratic donors and then routed the cash through state parties in a money laundering scheme of sorts. Finally, the money ended up into Hillary...
  • Are Delays in Prosecuting Mueller, Hillary, and Podesta by Sessions the Greatest Legal Travesty?

    It’s outrageous that after nearly a year in office AG Sessions is now considering an investigation into the Clinton Foundation and the approval of the sale of US uranium to Russia by Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration. The fact that Congress asked the Justice Department to look into the many corrupt and criminal actions of the Clintons and the Obama Administration and that we are just finding out now that Sessions is looking into these issues is appalling. What took Sessions so long? Is he even serious about looking into these crimes? Americans have known for years that the...

    Okay, the fake news is all abuzz about Mueller and indictment and grand jury and arrests on Monday (maybe)...and it all seems to stem from (again) unnamed sources. Well, correct me if I am WRONG, but I could have sworn that when this whole stupid "TrumpRussia" crap started, it was made clear that MUELLER was appointed as Special Counsel, NOT a special prosecutor. ANYTHING he discovered would be brought to DOJ and the DOJ would decide whether to pursue indictment. Am I wrong? Additionally, why would there be an ARREST? Here I really don't get it. If someone is the...

    Houston Chronical ^ | 7/21/2017 | Fernando Alfonso III
    A Houston man is on the hook for $65,000 in child support for a child that's not his. Gabriel Cornejo, 45, took a DNA test proving a child his ex-girlfriend had 16 years ago was not his. The test was too late. In 2003, a child support court in Houston ruled that Cornejo owed his ex-girlfriend child support because, she claims, there was no way he wasn't the father.

    Election-law experts say it is far from clear whether Donald Trump Jr.’s 2016 meeting with a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer crossed a legal line. President Trump’s eldest son arranged a meeting in June of last year between top campaign aides and a Russian lawyer who has been linked to the Kremlin, after being told she “might have information helpful to the campaign..." Federal election law prohibits foreign nationals or foreign governments from contributing or donating money or “anything of value” to a political campaign. It also makes it a felony for a campaign or members of a campaign to knowingly and...

    A Democratic congressman has proposed convening a special committee of psychiatrists and other doctors whose job would be to determine if President Donald Trump is fit to serve in the Oval Office. Maryland Rep. Jamie Raskin, who also teaches constitutional law at American University, has predictably failed to attract any Republicans to his banner.

    ...Should the Supreme Court decline to issue the temporary stay, the government is asking that the court agree to put the case on an accelerated schedule that would allow the justices to schedule arguments at the beginning of the fall term in October. Four votes are required to grant the request for the court to hear the case -- to determine if the travel ban is constitutional. But because the executive order is temporary -- the entry ban is to last for 90 days and the refugee provisions for 120 days –- it is conceivable that the executive order could...

    In an article for the Washington Examiner last week, writer Mark Grabowski pondered the idea of whether Twitter’s routine censorship could be unconstitutional. “Most Americans know they can speak their mind in the public square, thanks to the First Amendment. Speech on social media, however, can be censored because private companies own those cyber spaces,” wrote Grabowski on Tuesday. “But a recent Supreme Court oral argument suggests Twitter’s practice of banning controversial right-wing pundits could be deemed illegal.” Grabowski explained how the internet is now the popular public square, and how legally it should be treated as such. Driving the...
  • Trump’s Private Legal Team Weighing Case Against MSNBC and Reporter David Johnston

    Donald Trump’s private legal team is weighing a case against MSNBC and reporter David Johnston for leaking his 2005 tax forms on television this week. As reported earlier Rachel Maddow stepped on a rake earlier this week by releasing Trump’s 1040 tax return form from 2005. Rachel’s attempted hit piece enlightened the country that President Trump paid millions in taxes; he paid a higher tax rate than Socialists Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders. The Hill, which is no friend of President Trump, reported last night that what Rachel did may be illegal – “Disclosing a taxpayer’s information without consent IS...

    Just saw Madison Gesiotto on Neil Cavuto discussing a day without imigrant. She was opposed by a another woman, who had synthetic and contrived sound bites regarding citizen, those waiting for years on their papers and conflating illegal immigration with legal citizens, who pay their taxes, come to America to improve the lives of their families. Of course she used obfuscation to describe immigration, refusing to acknowledge the difference between Lawful and Legal Immigration. Stupidly, she told Madison "Your family were immigrants" As Madison pointed out, her family came here as legal immigrants and worked hard to become citizens, who...

The dog did bite but in defense of me , the case truly had no merit and the plaintiff made ridiculous claims such as "permanent disability" that had no basis in fact and were disproved with video exhibits (and a total lack of medical documentation). I had about 500 hours of surveillance in this fight and about $1000 in miscellaneous out of pocket...

    A Framingham middle school student was hospitalized Monday after he and another student ate a marijuana edible on the school bus, according to a letter released by Fuller Middle School. School officials are trying to find out who brought the edibles on the bus and how to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Stacy Velasquez says her 12-year-old son was riding the bus to school Monday morning when he found a container of gummy bears that got him very sick.
