Trauma Tuesday: Passed Out Reporter Edition

first_imgCross country skiing doesn’t appeal to everyone. Downhillers sometimes think it too bland or boring. Some even say it puts them to sleep.(BA-ZING!)This reporter can relate as her live news segment on XC goes down in flames when she inexplicably faints in the middle of a sentence. She is reportedly fine, as you can tell when she continues the broadcast (almost) as if nothing happened but a little “slip.” Her coworkers don’t seem too concerned, at least not as concerned as the gentleman attempting the rescue.Happy New Year!last_img

Proposed unbundled legal services rules

first_imgProposed unbundled legal services rules Proposed unbundled legal services rules The Board of Governors of The Florida Bar hereby gives notice of filing with the Supreme Court of Florida, on or about September 1, 2002, the report of the Unbundled Legal Services Special Committee II. The report contains several proposed amendments to the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar and a new rule to be added to the Family Law Rules of Procedure.The full text of the proposed amendments is printed below. A copy of the report with amendments may be requested by contacting Lori S. Holcomb, The Florida Bar, 651 E. Jefferson Street, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2300 or calling 850/561-5600, extension 5840.Members who desire to comment on these proposed amendments may do so within 30 days of the filing of the report. Comments should be filed directly with the clerk of the Supreme Court of Florida, and a copy must be served on the executive director of The Florida Bar. RULE 4-1.2 OBJECTIVES AND SCOPE OF REPRESENTATION (a) Lawyer to Abide by Client’s Decisions. A lawyer shall abide by a client’s decisions concerning the objectives of representation, subject to subdivisions (c), (d), and (e), and shall consult with the client as to the means by which they are to be pursued. A lawyer shall abide by a client’s decision whether to make or accept an offer of settlement of a matter. In a criminal case, the lawyer shall abide by the client’s decision, after consultation with the lawyer, as to a plea to be entered, whether to waive jury trial, and whether the client will testify. (b) No Endorsement of Client’s Views or Activities. A lawyer’s representation of a client, including representation by appointment, does not constitute an endorsement of the client’s political, economic, social, or moral views or activities. (c) Limitation of Objectives and Scope of Representation. A If not prohibited by law or rule, a lawyer and client may agree to limit the objectives or scope of the representation if the limitation is reasonable under the circumstances and the client consents in writing after consultation. If the attorney and client agree to limit the scope of the representation, the lawyer shall advise the client regarding applicability of the rule prohibiting communication with a represented person. (d) Criminal or Fraudulent Conduct. A lawyer shall not counsel a client to engage, or assist a client, in conduct that the lawyer knows or reasonably should know is criminal or fraudulent. However, a lawyer may discuss the legal consequences of any proposed course of conduct with a client and may counsel or assist a client to make a good faith effort to determine the validity, scope, meaning, or application of the law. (e) Limitation on Lawyer’s Conduct. When a lawyer knows or reasonably should know that a client expects assistance not permitted by the Rules of Professional Conduct or by law, the lawyer shall consult with the client regarding the relevant limitations on the lawyer’s conduct. Comment Scope Objectives of representation Both lawyer and client have authority and responsibility in the objectives and means of representation. The client has ultimate authority to determine the purposes to be served by legal representation, within the limits imposed by law and the lawyer’s professional obligations. Within those limits, a client also has a right to consult with the lawyer about the means to be used in pursuing those objectives. At the same time, a lawyer is not required to pursue objectives or employ means simply because a client may wish that the lawyer do so. A clear distinction between objectives and means sometimes cannot be drawn, and in many cases the client-lawyer relationship partakes of a joint undertaking. In questions of means, the lawyer should assume responsibility for technical and legal tactical issues but should defer to the client regarding such questions as the expense to be incurred and concern for third persons who might be adversely affected. Law defining the lawyer’s scope of authority in litigation varies among jurisdictions. In a case in which the client appears to be suffering mental disability, the lawyer’s duty to abide by the client’s decisions is to be guided by reference to rule 4-1.14. Independence from client’s views or activities Legal representation should not be denied to people who are unable to afford legal services or whose cause is controversial or the subject of popular disapproval. the same token representing a client does not constitute approval of the client’s views or activities. Services limited in objectives , scope or means The objectives or scope of services provided by a lawyer may be limited by agreement with the client or by the terms under which the lawyer’s services are made available to the client. For example, a retainer may be for a specifically defined purpose. Representation provided through a legal aid agency may be subject to limitations on the types of cases the agency handles. When a lawyer has been retained by an insurer to represent an insured, the representation may be limited to matters related to the insurance coverage. The terms upon which representation is undertaken may exclude specific objectives or means. Such limitations may exclude objectives or means that the lawyer regards as repugnant or imprudent , or which the client regards as financially impractical. Although this rule affords the lawyer and client substantial latitude to limit the representation if not prohibited by law or rule, the limitation must be reasonable under the circumstances. If, for example, a client’s objective is limited to securing general information about the law the client needs in order to handle a common and typically uncomplicated legal problem, the lawyer and client may agree that the lawyer’s services will be limited to a brief consultation. Such a limitation, however, would not be reasonable if the time allotted was not sufficient to yield advice upon which the client could rely. In addition, a lawyer and client may agree that the representation will be limited to providing assistance out of court, including providing advice on the operation of the court system and drafting pleadings and responses. If the lawyer assists a pro se litigant by drafting any document to be submitted to a court, the lawyer is not obligated to sign the document. However, the lawyer must indicate “Prepared with the assistance of counsel” on the document to avoid misleading the court that otherwise might be under the impression that the person, who appears to be proceeding pro se, has received no assistance from a lawyer. If not prohibited by law or rule, a lawyer and client may agree that any representation in court be limited. For example, a lawyer and client may agree that the lawyer will represent the client at a hearing regarding child support and not at the final hearing or in any other hearings. Regardless of the circumstances, a lawyer providing limited representation forms an attorney-client relationship with the litigant, and owes the client all attendant ethical obligations and duties imposed by the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar, including, but not limited to, duties of competence, communication, confidentiality and avoidance of conflicts of interest. Although an agreement for limited representation does not exempt a lawyer from the duty to provide competent representation, the limitation is a factor to be considered when determining the legal knowledge, skill, thoroughness and preparation reasonably necessary for the representation. An agreement concerning the scope of representation must accord with the Rules of Professional Conduct and law. Thus, the client may not be asked to agree to representation so limited in scope as to violate rule 4-1.1 or to surrender the right to terminate the lawyer’s services or the right to settle litigation that the lawyer might wish to continue. Criminal, fraudulent, and prohibited transactions A lawyer is required to give an honest opinion about the actual consequences that appear likely to result from a client’s conduct. The fact that a client uses advice in a course of action that is criminal or fraudulent does not, of itself, make a lawyer a party to the course of action. However, a lawyer may not assist a client in conduct that the lawyer knows or reasonably should know to be criminal or fraudulent. There is a critical distinction between presenting an analysis of legal aspects of questionable conduct and recommending the means by which a crime or fraud might be committed with impunity. When the client’s course of action has already begun and is continuing, the lawyer’s responsibility is especially delicate. The lawyer is not permitted to reveal the client’s wrongdoing, except where permitted or required by rule 4-1.6. However, the lawyer is required to avoid furthering the purpose, for example, by suggesting how it might be concealed. A lawyer may not continue assisting a client in conduct that the lawyer originally supposes is legally proper but then discovers is criminal or fraudulent. Withdrawal from the representation, therefore, may be required. Where the client is a fiduciary, the lawyer may be charged with special obligations in dealings with a beneficiary. Subdivision (d) applies whether or not the defrauded party is a party to the transaction. Hence, a lawyer should not participate in a sham transaction; for example, a transaction to effectuate criminal or fraudulent escape of tax liability. Subdivision (d) does not preclude undertaking a criminal defense incident to a general retainer for legal services to a lawful enterprise. The last sentence of subdivision (d) recognizes that determining the validity or interpretation of a statute or regulation may require a course of action involving disobedience of the statute or regulation or of the interpretation placed upon it by governmental authorities. RULE 4-4.2 COMMUNICATION WITH PERSON REPRESENTED BY COUNSEL (a) In representing a client, a lawyer shall not communicate about the subject of the representation with a person the lawyer knows to be represented by another lawyer in the matter, unless the lawyer has the consent of the other lawyer. Notwithstanding the foregoing, an attorney may, without such prior consent, communicate with another’s client in order to meet the requirements of any court rule, statute or contract requiring notice or service of process directly on an adverse party, in which event the communication shall be strictly restricted to that required by the court rule, statute or contract, and a copy shall be provided to the adverse party’s attorney. (b) An otherwise unrepresented person to whom limited representation is being provided or has been provided in accordance with the rule on objectives and scope of representation is considered to be unrepresented for purposes of this rule unless the opposing lawyer knows of, or has been provided with, a written notice of appearance under which, or a written notice of time period during which, the opposing lawyer is to communicate with the limited representation lawyer as to the subject matter within the limited scope of the representation. Comment This rule does not prohibit communication with a party, or an employee or agent of a party, concerning matters outside the representation. For example, the existence of a controversy between a government agency and a private party, or between 2 organizations, does not prohibit a lawyer for either from communicating with nonlawyer representatives of the other regarding a separate matter. Also, parties to a matter may communicate directly with each other and a lawyer having independent justification for communicating with the other party is permitted to do so. Communications authorized by law include, for example, the right of a party to a controversy with a government agency to speak with government officials about the matter. In the case of an organization, this rule prohibits communications by a lawyer for 1 party concerning the matter in representation with persons having a managerial responsibility on behalf of the organization and with any other person whose act or omission in connection with that matter may be imputed to the organization for purposes of civil or criminal liability or whose statement may constitute an admission on the part of the organization. If an agent or employee of the organization is represented in the matter by the agent’s or employee’s own counsel, the consent by that counsel to a communication will be sufficient for purposes of this rule. Compare rule 4-3.4(f). This rule also covers any person, whether or not a party to a formal proceeding, who is represented by counsel concerning the matter in question. RULE 4-4.3 DEALING WITH UNREPRESENTED PERSONS (a) In dealing on behalf of a client with a person who is not represented by counsel, a lawyer shall not state or imply that the lawyer is disinterested. When the lawyer knows or reasonably should know that the unrepresented person misunderstands the lawyer’s role in the matter, the lawyer shall make reasonable efforts to correct the misunderstanding. (b) An otherwise unrepresented person to whom limited representation is being provided or has been provided in accordance with the rule on objecting and scope of representation is considered to be unrepresented for purposes of this rule unless the opposing lawyer knows of, or has been provided with, a written notice of appearance under which, or a written notice of time period during which, the opposing lawyer is to communicate with the limited representation lawyer as to the subject matter within the limited scope of the representation. Comment An unrepresented person, particularly one not experienced in dealing with legal matters, might assume that a lawyer is disinterested in loyalties or is a disinterested authority on the law even when the lawyer represents a client. During the course of a lawyer’s representation of a client, the lawyer should not give advice to an unrepresented person other than the advice to obtain counsel. 12.040. ATTORNEYS (a) Limited Appearance. An attorney of record for a party, in a family law matter governed by these rules, shall be the attorney of record throughout the same family law matter, unless at the time of appearance the attorney files a notice, signed by the party, specifically limiting the attorney’s appearance only to the particular proceeding or matter in which the attorney appears. (b) Withdrawal or Limiting Appearance. (1) Prior to the completion of a family law matter or prior to the completion of a limited appearance, an attorney of record, with approval of the court, may withdraw or partially withdraw, thereby limiting the scope of the attorney’s original appearance to a particular proceeding or matter. A motion setting forth the reasons must be filed with the court and served upon the client and interested persons. (2) The attorney shall remain attorney of record until such time as the court enters an order, except as set forth in paragraph (c) below. (c) Scope of Representation. If an attorney appears “of record” for a particular limited proceeding or matter, as provided by this rule, that attorney shall be deemed “of record” for only that particular proceeding or matter. At the conclusion of such proceeding or matter, the attorney’s role terminates without the necessity of leave of court, upon the attorney filing notice of completion of limited appearance. The notice, which shall be titled “Termination of Limited Appearance,” shall include the names and last known addresses of the person(s) represented by the withdrawing attorney. (d) Preparation of Pleadings or Other Documents. A party who files a pleading or other document of record pro se with the assistance of an attorney shall certify that the party has received assistance from an attorney in the preparation of the pleading or other document. The name, address and phone number of the party shall appear on all pleadings or other documents filed with the court. (e) Notice of Limited Appearance. Any pleading or other document filed by a limited appearance attorney shall state in bold type on the signature page of that pleading or other document: “Attorney for [Petitioner][Respondent] [address of Petitioner or Respondent] for the limited purpose of [matter or proceeding].” (f) Service. During the attorney’s limited appearance, service of pleadings or other documents related to that matter shall be served upon both the attorney and the party.center_img September 1, 2002 Noticeslast_img read more

Novel’s lawyers slam police for giving legal aid to alleged attackers

first_imgRead also: KPK urged to take on Novel’s acid attack case after prosecutors demand light sentenceHowever, Novel’s advocacy team argued that the National Police should also heed Government Regulation No. 3/2003, which stipulates that officers can only receive legal assistance if their cases are related to their work.The team said that the police chief regulation was only a technical guideline in relation to the government regulation.Ronny and Rahmat allegedly attacked Novel in 2017 with sulfuric acid, causing severe damage to the latter’s left eye. In the indictment, prosecutors said the defendants perpetrated the attack because they held a grudge over the victim’s work as an investigator for the KPK, seeing it as a form of opposition to the National Police.According to Novel’s team, the crimes allegedly committed by Rahmat and Ronny could not be regarded as related to their duties as the defendants testified before the court that the attack was a result of personal motives.”If the National Police insist on providing legal assistance, we can conclude that the police as an institution was involved in the crime that the defendants have [allegedly] committed,” the statement wrote.Human rights activists and experts have also previously criticized the designation of police officers as the defendants’ lawyers, with criminal law expert Abdul Fickar Hadjar from Jakarta’s Trisakti University saying that public advocates should be the lawyers in criminal cases.When contacted by The Jakarta Post, National Police spokesperson Sr. Comr. Argo Yuwono stopped short at commenting about the demand. “Let the trial proceedings decide. We will leave it up to the court,” he said on Tuesday.Prosecutors at the North Jakarta District Court have demanded a one-year prison sentence for the two defendants.The relatively light sentence demand has led to questions being asked about the prosecutors’ argument that the defendants had “accidentally” thrown the acid into Novel’s face.Activists and members of the public have also raised suspicions that the two policemen are merely scapegoats, with the mastermind behind the attack still at large.Topics : The two-star police general previously served as the Jakarta Police’s general crime division head during the investigation into the assault.”We demand the National Police stop the legal assistance it provides to Ronny and Rahmat,” Novel’s advocacy team said, “[The assistance] is not legally valid and it poses a potential for a conflict of interest that could lead to a mistrial.””We also urge the Indonesian Ombudsman to investigate the National Police for alleged maladministration,” the team added.National Police Chief Regulation No. 2/2017 stipulates that police officers and their family members are eligible for legal consultation, advice, advocacy and assistance from the police institution in regard to legal problems. Novel Baswedan’s advocacy team has slammed the National Police for giving legal assistance to two police officers currently standing trial for allegedly attacking the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) investigator, urging the Indonesian Ombudsman to investigate the corps for alleged maladministration.The police-led legal team for the defendants, headed by National Police law division head Insp. Gen. Rudy Heriyanto Adi Nugroho, could be viewed as a potential conflict of interest, the advocacy team said in a statement published on Monday.The team claimed that based on information they had received, Rudy had given the defendants — members of the police’s Mobile Brigade Unit, Chief Brig. Ronny Bugis and Brig. Rahmat Kadir Mahulette — legal assistance since the start of the investigation into the acid attack in April 2017 until after the case had been brought to court.last_img read more

Netherlands roundup: Low-cost DC vehicles growing steadily

first_imgThe remainder of the increase was the result of investment returns.More than 500,000 people are saving for their pension through a PPI, 335,000 of whom are active and 199,000 are deferred participants.Last week, DNB also published statistics showing that pensions accrual in the second pillar is decreasing, with both sector schemes and company pension funds losing market share.Earlier this year, a survey by IPE’s Dutch sister publication Pensioen Pro revealed that the PPI market was consolidating, and that the offerings from insurers Aegon and Nationale Nederlanden – including the PPI of NN’s recent acquisition Delta Lloyd – between them covered three-quarters of the market. APG buys into €1bn infrastructure portfolioPrivate assets specialist Ardian has agreed to sell a portfolio of eight infrastructure assets valued at more than €1bn to Dutch manager APG and insurance giant AXA.The portfolio of assets forms part of an infrastructure fund run by Ardian and closed to new investors in 2007. Both APG and AXA are investors in this fund.Ardian will remain as manager of the portfolio, it said in a statement.The assets include an Italian gas distribution company, a Spanish toll road and French railway communication network Synerail.Jan-Willem Ruisbroek, senior portfolio infrastructure manager at APG, said the transaction was part of the company’s strategy “to acquire large portfolios of high-quality core infrastructure assets, while at the same time significantly enhancing the controls over those assets”.“Club deals with like-minded investors like AXA, supplemented with leading asset managers like Ardian, is one of our preferred routes of deploying capital,” Ruisbroek added. “Furthermore, this transaction contributes to our Sustainable Development Investment targets, with significant exposure to renewable energy and high speed rail.”Ahold scheme replaces custodianBNP Paribas Securities Services has won a mandate for custody and administration services from the €4.5bn Ahold Pensioenfonds.The Dutch pension fund of the Belgian retailer is BNP Paribas’ first new client since it took over the administration and reporting services of asset manager Actiam last summer.Currently, BNP Paribas Securities Services has four pension fund clients in the Netherlands with combined assets of €18bn.Pensioenfonds Ahold left KAS Bank for BNP Paribas. Low-cost DC vehicles in the Netherlands – known as PPI – saw total assets increase by 28% to €6.2bn during the first three quarters of 2017, according to supervisor De Nederlandsche Bank (DNB).It said that the number of active participants increased 20% to 335,000 in the same period.DNB’s statistics showed that, in the third quarter, PPI assets rose by 11% from €5.2bn, with almost half (48%) of the increase due to contributions from active participants, and 42% from PPI funds taking on existing plans.For example, the Dutch pension fund of IT firm Unisys announced that it would place €5m of individual DC assets with a PPI.last_img read more

Spotted: 1st LNG Bunkering of Fure Vinga in Europe

first_imgImage Courtesy: Nauticor, Gas Natural Fenosa On May 19, 2018, the newbuild chemical tanker Fure Vinga bunkered LNG for the first time in Europe.The vessel received a total of 120 tons of the environmental-friendly fuel in a truck-to-ship operation in the Port of Cartagena.“We are glad that the first LNG bunker operation for Fure Vinga in Europe has been completed smoothly, thanks to the cooperation of all parties involved in the bunker operation, including the ship’s crew and port authorities, as well as the profound preparation by Gas Natural Fenosa and Nauticor,” Lars Höglund, CEO of Furetank, said.LNG companies Nauticor and Gas Natural Fenosa decided to join forces and cooperate in order to jointly enable this operation.“With this type of cooperation it is evident that the use of LNG as a marine fuel is an economic, real and available solution for shipping companies, guaranteeing supply in ports of different areas,” Joaquin Mendiluce, General Manager of Gas Natural Comercializadora, said.Swedish-flagged Fure Vinga is the first in a series of six newbuild chemical tankers owned and operated by Donsö-based Furetank.
