MJP panel leans toward ‘safe harbors’

first_imgA 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.

NFL can’t change L.A. sports landscape

first_imgSunday, like the rest of America, I arrived at a Super Bowl party.As I mingled with the other guests and wolfed down my second chili dog, the inevitable question arrived: Which team are you rooting for?I did what I do whenever I’m asked that question regarding an NFL game — I waffled.Yeah, the Steelers would probably win because of their experience, but the Packers had been playing great football. Troy Polamalu is a Trojan, so I’ll root for him, but then there’s Clay Matthews, a Trojan as well …Boring, boring, boring. My answer screamed dispassion, the ugliest word in the dictionary of fandom. But that’s the problem.I was born and raised in Los Angeles. I’ve heard rumors that there were once organizations known as the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Raiders, but I was too preoccupied with Power Rangers at that point in my life to take notice.I am an NFL wanderer, and there are many others like me in this city.Anybody born the mid-’80s falls into this demographic. We’re too young to remember when the biggest sport in America, was here and too habituated now to care about its absence.We’re not even allowed the dignity of calling ourselves expatriates — it is as if we never had a country.Now, the proposal to build a stadium in Downtown has steadily been gaining momentum. There is already a naming rights deal lined up with Farmers Insurance, worth a reported $700 million.Alternatively, there is the Ed Roski proposal to build a stadium in the City of Industry, though this idea has lost some steam recently.Courtesy of Creative CommonsThere’s just that sense in the air that the nation’s second largest market will not be NFL-less for much longer.I was thinking about these things as I objectively watched the Steelers and the Packers battle out a fantastic Super Bowl. I could appreciate the value of the game’s competitiveness and its entertainment.I was impressed by big plays on both sides, like a non-confrontational soccer mom who wishes both teams could win. I had nothing invested in the game other than the five dollars I wagered in the squares pool.If anything, I was rooting for a score, not a team.Will this all change when Los Angeles has a team again?No matter how hard I try, I cannot visualize being morphed into a Chargers fan or a fan of whichever franchise decides to move here.Even if my city housed the team, the team would seem like a temporary guest. Passion cannot just materialize on command.Those that create it artificially are bandwagon fans (the second ugliest concept in the dictionary of fandom, by the way). There is no love at first sight in sports.Passion must be organic, and there is usually a seeding period that must happen at a certain age when the conditions are right, somewhere between eight to 14 years old.All this made me realize that it might be too late for my generation. The NFL missed out on our passion.No hard feelings or anything.I will still watch the games because I love the sport, but I can never feel the passion of fans who grew up with the same team their whole lives.Part of the problem is Los Angeles — the mentality of its fans. Angelenos expect greatness every year.Although the Lakers have played in seven of the last 11 NBA Finals, their third-place standing in the Western Conference is causing panic.After USC’s dominance during the Pete Carroll era, notice how much quieter the Coliseum was this year.It’s not that an L.A. team has to be great to generate interest or revenue.  The Dodgers haven’t been to a World Series in 22 years, and the team is loved all over the city. Believe it or not, people still buy season tickets to UCLA football games.A team just has to be synonymous with Los Angeles.It has to exude an L.A. vibe. It’s true that both the Lakers and the Dodgers, the city’s biggest pro franchises, were imports: the Lakers from Minneapolis, the Dodgers from Brooklyn. Over time, those teams became woven into the city’s fabric.Of course, with enough time and some success, that should happen with a Los Angeles NFL team.But for my generation of NFL wanderers, a Los Angeles team will still feel artificial, as if we are preparing for a heart transplant.We know the new heart will beat in rhythm and keep us alive, but we’ll always know the heart is not our own.“Middle Ground” runs Tuesdays.

In Notre Dame win, Bourama Sidibe flashes offensive potential with 12 points

first_imgSOUTH BEND, Ind. —  For months, Bourama Sidibe has just wanted the ball. He said before the season that he could be used more on offense. But Sidibe knows that’s not his role in this Syracuse offense, one that relies heavily on the 3-pointer and scores inside sparingly. “I usually don’t get the ball,” Sidibe said with a shrug. But still, he’s wanted the ball because he believes he can score. If Sidibe could just get the ball on the run, like he used to back in his adolescent days in Spain, maybe he could run the floor. Or if the ball was inserted to him down low, surely Sidibe could finish the layup as he did for years in high school. In Wednesday’s win 84-82 win against Notre Dame, Sidibe did what he’s long-said he can. The junior center flashed the offensive prowess he showed in earlier stages of his career. For the seventh time this season, he finished perfect from the field, shooting 6-for-6 while grabbing five rebounds. In Syracuse’s fourth-straight ACC win, the big-man, known best for his hobbling tendonitis and bobbling of passes, dunked the ball in transition and sank a hook shot. It was everything he hasn’t been but could be in one game. “If he can get us some points like he did tonight that was big.” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said. “He was moving guys were finding him when he was open.” AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSidibe’s night came four days after Boeheim flashed his finger in Sidibe’s face early in the game against Virginia Tech. Sidibe was responsible for the man in the corner and didn’t get out in time before the Hokies sank a 3-point shot. Boeheim’s bench reaming, something seen often throughout the year, was partially taken back when Syracuse watched the game again as a team. Sidibe shouldn’t have been screened. He can’t get screened. But the pass to the corner could’ve been blocked had other SU defenders been in proper spots. So it wasn’t all on the big man. But the scene said perhaps more than the play. A Sidibe screw up followed by a Boeheim scowling topped off by fans on the internet. “It’s tough,” Sidibe said. “He’s one of the toughest coaches I’ve played for.” Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 22, 2020 at 11:00 pm Contact Josh: [email protected] | @Schafer_44center_img After the Virginia Tech game, Sidibe vowed to be more aggressive. Syracuse assistant coach Allen Griffin told Sidibe the ball couldn’t be on the floor as much. When he catches a rebound, he needed to go up to the hoop with it. Don’t dribble. Don’t pass it outside. That’s when all the trouble happens. Just shoot. That’s what Sidibe did. When he caught a pass on the first possession against Notre Dame, he sank a layup. When he bobbled a no-look feed from Joe Girard III, Sidibe dunked it anyway. “If I touch it today I’m not going to pass it to nobody,” Sidibe thought to himself. “I’m just going to finish it.”The 6-foot-10 Sibide likes to catch the ball and turn and attack the hoop with a right-hand hook shot. Throughout practices and sometimes before, he’s worked on the move with Griffin. In his freshman season, when tendonitis hampered his ability to move, Sidibe would just fling the ball at the basket. This year, he’s tried to be more explosive and dunk the ball. Therein lies the problem. The dunk was too much. He didn’t need the dribble. Against Notre Dame, the ball didn’t hit the floor, and Sidibe swung his body around to hit a baby hook shot. “Take a risk with it,” forward Marek Dolezaj advised Sidibe. “If you get the ball don’t put it down…if you miss you miss, you know? “Sidibe’s point of demise never came against the Fighting Irish. He lost some battles against Notre Dame’s John Mooney, whom Boeheim likened to a top-25 player nationally but also denied some scoring opportunities. It seemed Boeheim directed Sidibe less. Normally, Boeheim’s motioning to him all game, but against the Fighting Irish, the disappointed look came less and less. When Sidibe reached his fourth foul with under 10 minutes remaining in the game, Qunicy Guerrier dropped his towel and looked toward the scorers table. Boeheim motioned him off.In a situation that’s been a substitution time and time again this season, Boeheim let Sidibe play. “When you’re  getting touches around the rim, you’re scoring, you’re going to be motivated yourself and play better defense,” Sidibe said. “But if you’re not getting that sometimes your motivation is going to sink, especially when the coach is yelling at you.”  Commentslast_img read more
