A Florida Bar commission studying multijurisdictional practices is leaning toward recommending a “safe harbor” approach to guide lawyers who cross state boundaries in the course of representing their clients.Commission Chair Richard Gilbert reported to the Board of Governors on February 1 that the panel plans to have its report to the board for its March 15 meeting in Tallahassee. The board wants to forward their comments to a special ABA MJP commission that meets six days later.Gilbert noted the Bar commission had a public hearing at the January Midyear Meeting and received comments. Some speakers, he noted, said they needed more time, but he said the commission and the board need to finish their work before the ABA panel meets again.MJP involves things such as a lawyer traveling to another state, where he or she is not licensed, to take a deposition. Or a lawyer responding to a client who has a question about another state’s laws, who has a business that crosses state borders, or needs mediation and arbitration help in another state.Proposals, Gilbert said, have included:• Creating a national licensing agency for lawyers, superceding the current state controls.• Treating a lawyer’s license like a driver’s license, where a license from one state would be recognized and honored in all other states.• Creating a “green card” system where a visiting lawyer would register in another state, pay a fee, and be regulated accordingly.• Creating “safe harbors” where certain conduct would be presumed okay if conducted in a state where the lawyer is not licensed.Both the ABA and the Bar commissions are leaning toward the safe harbor approach, Gilbert said, although what conduct should be included is still up in the air.The ABA panel’s preliminary recommendations include that protected conduct should be reasonable and not create an unnecessary risk, allowing lawyers to be admitted by motion to handle a matter as long as they have graduated from an accredited school and meet other standards, creating a uniform pro hac vice rule, and having reciprocal recognition of disciplinary sanctions, he said.Gilbert said the Bar commission does not like the motion practice admission proposal, modified the reciprocal discipline ideas, and thought the no harm standards for practicing in a foreign jurisdiction were too vague.“We followed the concept of having certain safe harbors that would provide shelter for performing temporary legal services outside your home state where you are licensed,” Gilbert said.He said the commission’s written report would be ready by the March 15 meeting, and said he hopes to hear from more sections and committees before then.

And mobile is at the heart of the new racing experience. “We are seeing a growing trend towards app betting, which is more convenient and user-friendly for sports fans of all generations. “Whether placing a bet at the racecourse, down the local pub, or from the comfort of your own sofa, your smartphone could be the quickest and easiest way to win big.”In its analysis of punters wagering habits during last year’s event, Worldpay has revealed a spike of 65% in betting activities on race day.In addition it would seem a large proportion of consumers leave it until the last minute to place their stakes, with betting peaking seven minutes before the start of the race, and 118 deposits a second being made to online accounts. However, despite almost half of the UK adult population having a flutter on the world-famous steeplechase, for many it will be their only bet of the year.As a result of this, the average spend per betting deposit drops by almost £3 over the course of the Grand National weekend.

The Argentinean explained that the staff would lower 70% of their salary while the state of alarm lasts and, incidentally, he reached out to throw a dart at the board for leaks about the doubts that this approach to cuts generated in the template . “The club tried to put us under the magnifying glass,” Barcelona’s 10 shot, clearly referring to leaks that had perhaps appeared to put pressure on them in the negotiation.Hours later, Bartomeu appeared in the Barcelona media to mitigate the effects, as much as possible, of the cluster bomb dropped by the captain of his team. At the wrong time, judging by some icon of Barcelona. And it is that an emblem like Enric Masip, historical captain of the handball section, has been censuring the proceeding of the board and its way of carrying both the issue of ERTE and that of the reduction of wages in the most burdensome sections, such as that of soccer and that of basketball. As I had previously written, the Club is absolutely broken and I do not mean only the economic part, also the personal and human part.They have let the players be given the clubs when they knew it was a matter of days to close the details. by the back– Enric Masip (@ enricmasip5) March 30, 2020Thus, Masip wrote today on his Twitter profile: “As I had previously written, the Club is absolutely broken and I’m not just talking about the financial side, but also the personal and human part. They have let the players be beaten when they knew it was a matter of days to close the details. Always from behind “. In the line of Messi, Masip pointed to the board of directors and his actions, calling him unfair. In addition, Masip accuses them of not explaining what the economic situation really is.“I said a few days ago that Barça takes the chest saying that it is the club with the highest budget and highest income, with forgiveness they cannot be so bad financially. They do not tell the truth about how we are. And the worst thing is that they have no intention of doing anything, good to continue yes “, launched the former Barcelona player after announcing the ERTE.
Amid high tides last week which affected a large section of Guyana’s coast, residents of Leguan in the Essequibo River also faced the brunt of flooding.One resident, Somnauth Devar, reached out to Guyana Times and told of a number of complaints about their condition after the inundation. He shared that while assistance was brought to the coastland, his community waited for many days before any relief efforts.Last weekend, he said the island was hit by massive flooding along with other sections of the coastland. After severe overtopping for a few days, officials of the Civil Defence Commission would have visited Leguan and Wakenaam on Thursday, where assessments were undertaken.“We get the flood here and all. They come to see what damage we get Thursday but nobody said anything about the defence and how to fix it for the next time. The West Coast wasn’t the only affected place. We yard had high high water and we had to wait with no assistance. We needed somewhere to go until this water went away,” the resident related.He added that while sea defence works are ongoing in some parts of the island, there is much more to be done. In fact, he insisted that the current structure would be inadequate in a few years to support the magnitude of overtopping in the coming years.“Every year, what we seeing is that the tide coming bigger and bigger. So you can’t build back the same structure and expect that the people here would be safe. The seawall got to be higher to protect we. They just rebuilding the same thing that we had before…When the people from the Ministry come round the last time, people tell them about it”.According to other residents, persons residing in close proximity to the river were more severely affected than others.On September 28, residents in several coastal villages were under water from the unprecedented high tides, which lasted until Thursday. According to authorities, the communities in Regions Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam), Three (Essequibo Islands-West Demerara), Four (Demerara-Mahaica), Five (Mahaica-Berbice) and Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) were affected by the high water.Stakeholders from the various agencies met on Tuesday afternoon to discuss the damage from the floods and steps to be taken to prevent or alleviate similar impacts from another bout of high tides expected on October 26, 2019.Updating the media during the National Emergence Operation Centre meeting, Senior Response Officer, Capt Salim October, revealed that across the coastline, a total distance of approximately 148 kilometres were impacted by the floods, including some 65 communities across the various regions with Three and Five facing the severity of the floods.According to October, the impacts in Region Five were exacerbated by breached sea defence.Nevertheless, he noted that assessments thus far reveal that approximately 400 households were flooded, causing items to be damaged. He added too that affected persons have also suffered the loss of cash crops as well as livestock including poultry and cattle, especially in Region Five.“Salt water accumulation did not only affect homes but the impacts were also to pasture lands that small- and large-scale ruminants are required to graze. There were noted sea defence structure breaches and overtopping of sea and river defences, which would’ve caused heightened levels of erosion. As well as noted, damage to agriculture inputs and by extension, the cascading effect of that is for loss of usual livelihood, and at this point potential livelihood – particularly, compromised rice crops from salt water accumulation,” he was quoted as saying.
