Available for free download on Google Play and the App Store, parents and their teen drivers can list three emergency contacts’ names, email and phone numbers where they can receive a text message in the event of an accident. The app can sense when the user’s phone experiences an abrupt change in travel, when the phone is in the car and it goes from driving speed to zero in an instant because of a wreck.

“Having kids of my own that drive is nerve racking enough, says, injury lawyer Rocky Haire, technology today allows some assurance you know what’s happening when your teens are driving. It’s really is a great tool for parents.”

You can also manually set off the crash detection alert in the event of another emergency in which you need immediate first responders but cannot make an emergency phone call. For example, if you are injured, if you fear an intruder, or in any other situation where you cannot make a phone call, you can still summon help.

Essex County Superior Court granted post-conviction relief, and ordered the State to give Altariq Coursey a new trial, tossing out his convictions.

Halscott Megaro PA (N/A:N/A)

… prior attorney committed several … errors… had they been corrected at the time of the trial there is reasonable probability that the result of the proceeding would have been different”

— Patrick Megaro, Defense Lawyer

ORLANDO, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Halscott Megaro PA announced that attorney Patrick Megaro has won a Post-Conviction Relief Petition for his client Altariq Coursey. Mr. Coursey was charged on September 24, 2012, by an Essex County grand jury and was convicted after a jury trial and sentenced to 22 years with 11 of those years’ ineligibility for parole.

Once Mr. Coursey was sentenced, Patrick Megaro, Esq. field an appeal on his client’s behalf. However, the New Jersey Appellate Division affirmed the conviction, but noted that Mr. Coursey could challenge his conviction with a Petition for Post-Conviction Relief on the grounds of ineffective assistance of counsel.

Mr. Megaro filed a Petition for Post-Conviction Relief in the Essex County Superior Court in 2016. Mr. Megaro reviewed the case and stated “Mr. Coursey’s prior attorney committed several unprofessional errors, that had they been corrected at the time of the trial there is reasonable probability, that the result of the proceeding would have been different.”

On June 4, 2016, the Essex County Superior Court granted post-conviction relief, and ordered the State to give Altariq Coursey a new trial, tossing out his convictions.

Mr. Megaro went on to add, “we are very pleased with the decision from the Superior Court of New Jersey. They considered our petition for Post-Conviction Relief and it was GRANTED.”

The term Post-Conviction Relief refers to a law or court rule that allows a collateral challenge to a judgment of conviction which has otherwise become final in the normal appellate review process. Post-conviction relief is governed by federal and state laws, which vary by state, and may be used to preclude state or federal habeas corpus.

Attorney Patrick Megaro received both his Bachelor's Degree and Law Degree from Hofstra University. He is also the recipient of the Leon Stern Award (2002). Mr. Megaro has had several articles published and has made numerous appearances on national media such as the “Today Show” and “Happening Now” on the Fox News Channel.

Ex-Commando is Overcoming the Effects of #MeToo

Novel approach aims to save $2,700 per employee through training leaders

The #MeToo movement has presented many leaders with an extraordinary opportunity for them to grasp and to really examine, perhaps for the first time, the distorted way organisations have been run”

— Thom Dennis, CEO Serenity in Leadership

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, August 15, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Training for CEOs and their teams in the wake of the #MeToo movement can have major beneficial implications on the bottom line says a new report.
Thom Dennis, a former British Royal Marine and founder of the corporate change consultancy Serenity in Leadership, says that improving the mindset of leaders can lead to the elimination of sexual harassment, diversity avoidance, concealment, deception and bullying. “It’s a positive choice they can make which could save a corporation of 10,000 employees around $27,300,000 per year,” says Dennis. He goes on: “This is the first time there is a clear mathematical formula that business leaders can apply to their own organizations to calculate the likely overhead they are incurring, without knowing it. The time is now for them to explore, even if they don’t believe they have this challenge; they have much to gain.”
In a new whitepaper, he shares the formula and outlines the first simple steps leaders can take to stamp out such damage. Dennis emphasizes from his 27 years’ experience as a change facilitator how bias in leaders in an organization – whether conscious or unconscious – has led to public embarrassment for global brands, expensive litigation suits and diminished company loyalty amongst staff. And yet, many senior C-level executives, it seems, remain focused on short-term goals and are unaware of the costs that result from dysfunctional behavior.
The whitepaper highlights the complexity surrounding gender bias, sexual harassment and inclusion in the workplace, and concludes that in spite of the pressures that have been exerted through the #MeToo and #TimesUp campaigns, the majority of organizations have yet to engage with the issue. The paper gives the reader a large amount of evidence that supports an executive in persuading their colleagues that there is much to be gained now from making an investment in themselves as part of their overall risk management planning. The potential savings are substantial.
Dennis’ Conscious Power program creates a journey for the executive team with dialogue sessions, in-house workshops and transformational leadership retreats to offer them a path toward greater self-awareness, authenticity and ethical leadership. The effect of Conscious Power is to invigorate them and offers a series of concrete steps to change.
Details of the Conscious Power program are on the Serenity in Leadership website, as well as a downloadable copy of the whitepaper.

Law Office of Sarah Cox & Associates, LLC (N/A:N/A)

… of course, if you have been injured, you will need specific legal advice based on the circumstances of your case …”

— Sarah Ellen Cox, Personal Injury Lawyer

FORT MYERS, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Law Office of Sarah Cox & Associates, LLC announced today that principal attorney Sarah Cox is setting up a new legal blog https://SarahECoxBlog.blogspot.com/ which will focus primarily on Personal Injury Law, and how the law is changing.

“With all the recent news and misinformation regarding Personal Injury matters, I felt that I could help explain the truths behind the real issues at hand” said Attorney Sarah Cox. “I have a decade of experience working in this area, and can help people understand the issues, and obtain initial information when they need legal help.”

Personal Injury law encompasses a broad range of legal matters, such as slip-and-fall actions, vehicle accidents, boating accidents, and even dog bites. Generally, one must show that another person was careless or negligent, and that such carelessness caused the injury. Also, one has to remember that the time to file such an action is generally four years in Florida (“Statute of Limitations”). Thus, a person as four years from the date of the accident to file a lawsuit in Florida courts (Florida Statutes Annotated Section 95.11(3)).

Adds Ms. Cox, “if you have an injured, you should also know that in Florida, most personal injury lawyers will accept cases on a ‘contingency basis.’ This means that if you lose your case, you pay the attorney nothing. The attorney does not charge up front, but will take a percentage of the proceeds from the case, from a settlement or court judgment.”

Lawyer Sarah Cox is planning to inform the public about such developments that they may not read about in the newspaper or see on television. But she cautions that “of course, if you have been injured, you will need specific legal advice based on the circumstances of your case.”

About Sarah Cox

Sarah E. Cox is a Personal Injury attorney in Fort Myers, Florida. Ms. Cox received her Juris Doctor from Whittier School of Law in 2005, and was admitted to the Florida Bar in 2008.

What Could the ABA’s Clarification on Lawyer Advertising Rules Mean for You?

Law Firm Marketing Agency

The ABA has voted in favor of adjusting legal advertising rules to ease confusion.

The rule change from the ABA will help ease confusion in regards to the right and wrong way to do legal advertising.”

— Mary Ann Fasanella, CEO of Advisory Concept Evolvers

PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA, UNITED STATES, August 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — +

Last week, the American Bar Association, or ABA, voted in favor of modernizing its rules on lawyer advertising. Part of this modification to regulations includes clarifying the rules as well. Legal advertising has been a confusing area regarding legal ethics for lawyers for many years now.

The proposed changes were only a piece of a larger proposal made during the ABA’s annual meeting in Chicago. These changes focused on model Rules 7.1 through 7.5. These parts have now been compressed and simplified, according to the ABA.

According to Lucian Pera, a partner at Adams & Reese in Memphis, the proposed changes will have a focus on false and misleading ads. The changes will allow for lawyers to better communicate their services to potential clients, offering better insight into how they can solve potential clients’ legal issues.

From the perspective of the younger generation of attorneys, the old ABA rules have made it nearly impossible to utilize creativity in law firm marketing and legal advertising. Many have claimed it has also hindered business and potential business from booming.

Much of this hindered creativity stems from lawyers being unsure of what is appropriate and ethical and what is not okay to say in advertisements. The area of legal advertisement has been murky and questionable for years, which prompted the proposal for change.

According to the ABA, the changes will act as guidance and make it clearer for lawyers to know what they can say in advertisements and what is restricted. For example, the rules would clarify how lawyers approach advertising about fees, restricting any misleading fee information.

The Association of Professional Responsibility Lawyers (APRL) who attended the annual meeting completely agreed to the necessity of the proposed changes. Allison Martin Rhodes, president of the APRL, went as far as to call the old rules “chaotic.” She argued that nobody in the legal field ever truly understood the rules, which has caused mass confusion.

While representatives of the APRL believe the change in rules will help ease confusion and give clarity on legal advertising, the rules do not truly address advertising on social media networks. If a lawyer has his or her own personal LinkedIn page and self-promotes, is that considered advertising?

There are questions like the above that are still not addressed under the proposed new rules in regards to social media networks, which could still lead to confusion amongst lawyers. However, the ABA hopes the majority of uncertainty will be resolved under the new rule model.

The ABA model rule changes are not bound to be enforced by individual states. They instead act as guidelines for individual states to follow and potentially craft their own regulations based off of. The ABA hopes within the next few years, the majority of states will adopt these changes.

Many lawyers are hoping this change will make it easier to understand the ethical side of advertising their firms. Supporters believe the changes will lead to a complex entirely new set of regulations regarding lawyer advertisements.

New Opportunities to help Michigan Veterans

The most dynamic feature of this resolution is that it will fund the veterans’ programs and services in perpetuity AT NO COST TO MICHIGAN TAXPAYERS.

That would allow the state to cover the cost of the Michigan Veterans Trust Fund (MVTF), the operations of all the state veterans’ homes and the grant funding of Veterans Service Organizations.

— John H. Riling III

LANSING, MI, UNITED STATES, August 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — New Opportunities to help Michigan Veterans

For Immediate Release:
8-14-18
Lansing, MI

Once in a great while a rare opportunity to serve veterans and their families appears AT NO COST TO TAXPAYERS. Such an opportunity is about to materialize. Earlier this year the U. S. Supreme Court ruled that New Jersey can implement a sport gaming system. That means that other states can do the same. In Michigan this would represent at new source of revenue. A frequent comment of many elected officials is, “We cannot do enough for our veterans.” This is a way that they can!

"The most dynamic feature of this resolution is that it will fund the veterans’ programs and services of Michigan Veterans in perpetuity AT NO COST TO MICHIGAN TAXPAYERS. It is a golden opportunity to fund all of Michigan’s present and future veterans’ programs & services without relying on General Fund resources. As proposed, the anticipated fund would produce $50 million a year [at an earning rate of 5%]. That would allow the state to cover the cost of the Michigan Veterans Trust Fund (MVTF) Emergency Grant Program, the operations of all the state veterans’ homes, the grant funding of Veterans Service Organizations (including the county offices of veterans affairs), all currently existing smaller programs, and future programs such as veterans housing initiatives and cemetery expansions, said John Riling, State Council President".

It is also important to note that the funding of the expanded trust could come from other sources such as medical and/or recreational marijuana. Enabling these actions can put Michigan in a unique position of creating a template for funding veterans’ services state-by-state throughout the country. Once again, this would be without relying on General Fund resources.

It is election time and soon the State Legislature will be in its lame duck session. This is the time for every citizen that wants to help support our brave Michigan Veterans to tell the candidates and elected officials to support a bill that will earmark these funds to support our Veterans. Make it clear that you support our Veterans and you want them to do the same. You can make this happen.

The Michigan State Council-Vietnam Veterans of America (MSC-VVA) wants your support and to be ready to act – NOW. The legislature will need to amend the current Michigan Veterans Trust Fund (MVTF) statutes to enable the funding of a full range of veterans programs & services. Among them should be the expansion of the MVTF Board of Trustees to oversee the major programs mentioned above. Another goal should be the establishment and solidification of a Michigan Department of Veterans Affairs. Call, write, attend rally’s; do want you can to talk to the candidates and elected officials about creating this legislation that will secure the financial funding for our Michigan Veterans.

U.S District Court, Eastern District of Louisiana, found that individual living and working in Texas does not have sufficient minimum contacts with Louisiana

Wallace Meyaski LLC (N/A:N/A)

… the Court … considered the arguments we presented that Mr. B. lacks sufficient minimum contacts with Louisiana necessary to force a non-resident to defend himself in another state …”

— K Todd Wallace, Attorney in New Orleans

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA, UNITED STATES, August 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The law firm Wallace Meyaski LLC announced today that attorney Kenneth Todd Wallace was able to successfully move a federal court case to his client’s home state of Texas. Judge Eldon E. Fallon of the Eastern District of Louisiana ordered that this case (Security Data Supply, LLC et al v. Nortek Security and Control, LLC et al) be transferred to the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas.

Comments K. Todd Wallace: “This order is of crucial importance in this case in that the Court properly concluded that it does not have personal jurisdiction over an individual client who lives and works in another state. Instead, to continue a lawsuit against him, it must be pursued in his home state of Texas.”

In this case, Plaintiffs Security Data Supply, LLC (“SDS”), and its franchise locations, brought claims for antitrust and price discrimination violations and violations of state laws in Louisiana, Texas, and California. While SDS is a wholesale distributor of electronic security systems and sells these systems through franchise retail locations, SDS filed antitrust and price discrimination claims against Defendants Nortek Security and Control (“Nortek”), Wave Electronics, Inc. (“Wave”), and Mr. Earnest Bernard. Nortek is a manufacturer of electronic security systems; Wave is a wholesale distributor of electronic security systems in competition with while E.B. is a former sales representative.

SDS and Wave sell Nortek products in direct competition with each other. SDS alleges that while E.B. was employed at Nortek, he provided Wave with preferential pricing on Nortek products to the exclusion of Wave’s competitors. SDS further alleges that Nortek sold identical products to SDS and Wave but intentionally discriminated in price, providing a lower price to Wave through a “Four Star Program,” a type of rebate program. SDS believes that this program allowed Wave to sell Nortek products at a lower price than SDS could purchase them. SDS also alleges that Nortek management was aware of this preferential pricing scheme and allowed it to continue long after E.B. left the company. The defednatns, including E.B., has denied these unfounded allegations throughout the litigation. SDS alleges that they have been been injured and SDS has lost at least 59 clients and $9.5 million per year. Therefore, SDS bring claims against Defendants for violations of the Robinson-Patman Act (“RPA”) (15 U.S.C. §13(a), (c), (d), (f)), and state law claims of corporate bribery and violations of state trade practices acts.

E.B sought to dismiss all claims against him, in part, based upon a lack of personal jurisdiction in a Louisiana federal court. Judge Eldon E. Fallon of the Eastern District of Louisiana found that Mr. B. is an individual residing in the state of Texas. The Court noted that, since he was an employee of Nortek and worked in Texas, therefore, the Eastern District of Louisiana does not have general jurisdiction over him. Additionally, the Court found that Plaintiffs did not allege in their complaint that Mr. B. traveled to, or acted in, or directed any other actions within the state of Louisiana. Therefore, Mr. B. lacked sufficient contacts with Louisiana that would allow the Louisiana Court to exercise specific jurisdiction over him.

Mr. Wallace states, “as you can imagine we are very pleased that the Court properly considered the arguments we presented that Mr. B. lacks sufficient minimum contacts with Louisiana necessary to force a non-resident to defend himself in another state. If this case is to continue, Texas is the only appropriate venue.”

Many regulations, such as the NYDFS Cybersecurity Regulation, DFARS (Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement) and the EU’s GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation), require you to report breaches to the relevant supervisory authority within 72 hours of becoming aware.

When reporting the breach, you’ll need to explain how it could have been avoided. You can’t prevent a cyber attack from the beach, so get #BreachReady before you go. IT Governance USA’s pick-and-mix security protection packages will provide a safety net and give you peace of mind.

Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “While you’re away on your summer vacation, criminal hackers and phishers will depend on the gaps in your cybersecurity program to infiltrate your organization. Their success will cost you customers, your reputation, and money. This year alone we’ve seen data breaches affect the likes of Adidas, Ticketmaster, and Facebook. No one is immune. Organizations need to get on the front lines now.”

Psychiatry an Industry of Death Museum

Museum demonstrates that psychiatry is not a trusted and safe expert for the betterment of mental health and mankind.

Lawmakers, human rights advocates, healthcare professionals and private citizens have toured the museum and are using the information to take action and forcing psychiatry to account for its crimes.”

— Citizens Commission on Human Rights

CLEARWATER, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 14, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Citizens Commission on Human Rights (CCHR), a non-profit mental health watchdog dedicated to the eradication of abuses committed under the guise of mental health, has toured almost 5,300 people through the Psychiatry: An Industry of Death museum as part of an ongoing effort to educate Floridians on their rights under the Baker Act and are inviting all to view the museum at their headquarters in downtown Clearwater. The museum is open daily from 10am until 10pm and tours are free of charge.

Unveiled in July of 2015, the Florida version of the Psychiatry: An Industry of Death museum, presents the unvarnished history of psychiatry while also providing information on the state of psychiatry today. Consisting of 14 audiovisual displays revealing the cold, hard facts about psychiatric abuses, the museum uses interviews on the mental health industry from more than 160 doctors, attorneys, educators and survivors to expose the multi-billion dollar fraud that is psychiatry.

Coupling tours of the museum with seminars and workshops delivered by attorneys and healthcare professionals on the mental health law, known as the Baker Act, CCHR is working to educate lawmakers, doctors and all private citizens that psychiatry is not a trusted and safe expert for the betterment of mental health.

Of the thousands of people that tour the museum and attend center events are psychiatric nursing students brought by their professors to learn the truth about psychiatry. Students from nursing schools and technical colleges from across the state come to the museum to go through the 2-hour self-guided tour as part of their clinical days and find the experience to be informative and eye opening.

The museum is open daily from 10am until 10pm and events are held weekly and monthly. Both are open and free to the general public. For more information please call 727-442-8820 or visit http://www.cchrflorida.org/events/

About the Citizens Commission on Human Rights: CCHR has produced seven award-winning documentaries, with 7 million DVDs in 18 languages reaching 120 million people exposing drugging in the military, the irreparable harm of electric shock and the labeling and drugging of children. Initially established by the Church of Scientology and renowned psychiatrist Dr. Thomas Szasz in 1969, CCHR’s mission is to eradicate abuses committed under the guise of mental health and enact patient and consumer protections. L. Ron Hubbard, founder of Scientology, first brought psychiatric imprisonment to wide public notice: “Thousands and thousands are seized without process of law, every week, over the ‘free world’ tortured, castrated, killed. All in the name of ‘mental health,’” he wrote in March 1969. For more information visit www.cchrflorida.org
