Education Law Without Needing Education

Oregon’s governor recently signed legislation that allows high school students to graduate without proving they can read, write, or do math.  Oregon Senate Bill 744 (pdf) states that students “may not be required to show proficiency in Essential Learning Skills as a condition of receiving a high school diploma” in the next three school years. “This 2021 Act being necessary for the immediate preservation […]

False Report

In our legal system innocence is presumed.  The concept of believing the accuser creates an impossible task of proving the lack of guilt, because there is always going to be a void of evidence where something did not occur.  It creates the perception of guilt on everyone and begs the verse: He that is without sin among you, let him […]

Crocodile Attack

As an attorney, you many times sit down with a potential client and only know a small amount of the situation. The key that many attorneys forget is that you can not determine if there is a legal solution to an issue until you actually hear what the client says. A closed mind is created by an open mouth. As […]

Mandatory Vaccination

The New York State Bar Association (NYSBA) recommended that the state consider mandating a COVID-19 vaccine.   NYSBA’s House of Delegates approved a resolution outlining conditions for requiring the vaccine for all New Yorkers save those exempted by doctors. It would be up to public health authorities to decide if a vaccine mandate is necessary, and whether it should apply to all residents or to […]

John Hilliard

Many people view the legal profession as a system of adversaries that must fight with each other day in or day out.  Other people view attorneys and their teams as a group of people that are all products of a “buddy/buddy system.”  The truth is that we are – both.  Every day in the Courtroom we must be adversarial with other […]

Firework Laws

Laws are getting created everyday, but common sense needs to be associated with those laws.  I hope your July 4th went off with a bang – or did it?   That really depends on your state: Massachusetts is the only state where fireworks are completely banned aside from professional displays, according to a May report from Reader’s Digest. Illinois, Ohio and […]

Bari Weiss Resigns From New York Times Due To ‘Constant Bullying’ By Colleagues

One year ago, opinion editor Bari Weiss resigned from The New York Times, penning a scathing letter of resignation in which she alleged that she was subjected to “constant bullying” from colleagues who deemed many of her ideas “wrongthink.”  Weiss said she was hired by the Times in 2017 to bring in “voices that would not otherwise appear in your pages,” including centrists and […]
