From a contract point of view, United looks like they're in material breech of the terms of care they supposedly offered in their program. She's got documented video of the maltreatment. Either someone in legal is hoping this won't blow up in United's face (way to late for that, thanks Internet) or they'll go to court and ultimately settle.
I hope this woman goes for class action status. There must be others to had pets who didn't make it or were maltreated by the Airline. Make them pay.
It's clear that either Jarrod either doesn't know the difference between copyright and trademark law OR he knows the difference and is filing a frivolous complaint. Either one show he's incompetent or knowing attempting to deceive the court.
Maybe he should be practicing law. One less scumbag lawyer out of this might send a message.
I can imagine what the Board's reaction would have been if the lawyer had addressed them with mentions of litigation against each member personally rather than the school district as a whole. That way, they'd have to pay the cost out of pocket and insurance wouldn't cover it.
ADA violation, 1st and 2nd amendment violations. The list just starts there. I wonder how these clowns would deal with that?
First step is a TRO against the district along with litigation contesting the jurisdiction the Principle is asserting.
Then file suit to get this Principle removed from the school district and teaching.
If that fails, suit to close the school until they hire a competent Principle.
If the school district through this Principle is going to assert they're responsible for everything that happens from door-to-door, start collecting cases for a personal injury class action against the district. If there were any shootings that happened while traveling to/from school, this makes the district libel for damages.
Really, this Principle has recto-cranial inversion really bad. Why are all these nutjob Principles in the South?
I can see a helicopter parent (who's also a lawyer) going after this with the help of that local Student Law center. And suing the principle personally for violating a student's 1st amendment rights. Because his Johnny *has* to get into Harvard. And not being in sports or clubs would get in the way of that.
because they keep doing stupid things (along with police departments) to kids and now their parents. If the DA chooses to pursue this, I hope that any civil suit that results will make the school district think before acting stupidly. And their new insurance company--cause it only takes one incident of 'being stupid' to get your insurance cancelled.
I'd love to see Carmen Ortez in a courtroom against an attorney that would use her proprietorial record against her. And the fact that Miranda was withheld or delayed will severely hamstring sad prosecution.
With this topic now throughly exhausted, Ms. Buhl continues to dig herself deeper and deeper into the dark hole of "clueless fool". If some attorney decides to take her case, I hope the judge slaps the case with sanctions and this woman walks away with her rectum handed to her in a handbasket.
Meanwhile, I'm going to CostCo and buy a pallet of microwave popcorn. Between the Righthaven, Preenda, and this case, I'm throughly entertained.
I bought a few things from them. Talking strictly about the company itself, it took WEEKS to fulfill my orders. And I finally had to email their CS person to find out where my stuff was. Apparently they can't track orders with their processing system or provide shipping info. So they mailed me another item, which I got two weeks later for a total of 6 weeks to get something. What is this, 1960?Thankfully Target's been carrying some of their stuff so I can bypass web-ordering.
Pricey, but nice, gifty things. That you have to wait for a while to get. Which precludes giving them as gifts.
Until I heard Rachel Maddow's show on the NRA Obama's Kids ad (it was really about trolling), I had no context for comments like this. And they would piss me off. Which is exactly what Yee wants. And to rally like minded people to his cause or show someone that he stands for something.
Guess SCOTUS telling him to STFU isn't enough. Maybe holding lawmakers in contempt (e.g. tossing them into jail for a week, a month or maybe a year) might be a solution. It worked for the the terrorists at Gitmo, right?
I'm bordering on trolling here myself but I have a problem with lawmakers infringing on what I can do legally in my own home on my own time. Belmont when after smoking in condos and apartments (which I don't do but reserve the right for anyone to smoke in their own home).
Now he wants to come after video games? You'll have to pry the keyboard out of my cold dead fingers, Senator Yee.
While she may get away with her actions in this case, justifying and outright lying about them to the public. In private, her family and her conscience ultimately will judge her for what she did. If she has no conscience, then, as a true sociopath, she's perfectly positioned to become the next governor of Massachusetts. My only hope is that people of that state have a long memory for such things and her opponent will hammer home the "she drove a 24 boy to suicide" over and over and over.
While she may never see the consequences of her actions, time may judge her more harshly than if she was actually removed from office and stripped of her law license.
BoingBoing has a link to a petition submitted to Whitehouse.gov to remove this prosecutor from her job. I think the more people that sign it, the more the Whitehouse will have to look at the problem.
If the petition process was enough to get Obama to say "We're not going to build a Death Star. Get over it." Maybe getting them to review this person's position in the Justice Department (a misnomer if ever I've heard one).
I'd like to see a group of 10 different ACLU attorneys, all of different ethnicities and ages, go walking in this area with remotely uploading video uplinks. When asked to show their papers by the various officers, they can go through the dialog "What's your probable cause." and refuse to produce them. Videos would then be used for litegation against the arresting officers, police chief, and mayor. That city is going to be bankrupt from all the litigation very quickly.
