Missouri US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate Now Urges a Navy Veteran with Mesothelioma in Missouri To Call for On the Spot Access to Attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste-Get Honest Answers About Compensation

"If you are a Navy Veteran in Missouri with mesothelioma please call us anytime at 800-714-0303-we want you to get the best compensation results and we will not waste your time with nonsense.”

— Missouri US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate

KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI , USA, October 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Missouri US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate says, "When it comes to a US Navy Veteran with mesothelioma in Missouri, we believe the phrase 'show me' are super important when it comes to hiring a law firm to represent them. We are urging a Navy Veteran in Missouri or their family members to call us anytime at 800-714-0303 and we will try to provide on the spot access to attorney Erik Karst of the law firm of Karst von Oiste.

"Erik and his colleagues are responsible for over a billion dollars in mesothelioma or asbestos exposure compensation claims-and their top priority is seeing to it that Navy Veterans with mesothelioma receive the best possible financial compensation results. As we would like to discuss anytime at 800-714-0303 talking directly with attorney Erik Karst about mesothelioma compensation is a much better option than ordering a 'free' book, kit, or overnight package about mesothelioma-or contacting a 'claims center' that is not sponsored by the federal government." www.karstvonoiste.com/

The Missouri US Navy Veterans Mesothelioma Advocate is also warning a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma in Missouri to avoid hiring a local car accident lawyer to help a complex mesothelioma compensation claim. Doing this would be like hiring a local plumber to paint your house. The plumber might know a little about paint brushes or paint-but they would probably be clueless on the vital step by step process to get the job properly done.

LandAjob Advice: How to Job Hunt with a Criminal Record

Gavel in Front of Judge

Gavel in Front of Judge

Approximately 77 million Americans have a criminal record, LandAjob discusses how Americans with disabilities and a criminal record can come back to work.

Americans with disabilities just want a second chance at finding a new job. We know from our experience people are grateful for new opportunities and are willing to work hard for those employing them.”

— Director of Operations for LandAjob

BOSTON, MA, UNITED STATES, October 30, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Approximately 77 million Americans have a criminal record, one of three people face the possibility of being denied employment due to past offenses.

To put that in perspective, according to the Brennan Center for Justice, there are as many criminal convictions as there people with college degrees. The United States Justice Department stated a past conviction reduced the likelihood of getting a job offer by 50 percent.

“It can be additionally difficult for Americans with disabilities who have a criminal record,” said John Bertram, Director of Operations for LandAjob. “You have to stress you are committed to making positive contributions to society and this job would be a great way to accomplish that.”

LandAjob is a nonprofit that helps individuals with disabilities find work through job services and provide job-expense reimbursements to help them transition back into the workplace. They have an exclusive database of over 600,000 active positions for individuals with disabilities. Once a person attains a job, they may qualify for up to $13,000 in job-expense reimbursements. Job-expense reimbursements can come in the form of a work computer, daycare, or even the cost of transportation traveling back and forth to work.

Two factors are helping Americans with disabilities. A strong economy has created a demand for more workers and companies are finding that people with criminal records provide equal or greater value to companies than people without records.

A nation-wide study by the Society for Human Resource Management and the Charles Koch Industries found more than 80 percent of managers and two-thirds of human resource professionals said people with criminal records brought as high or even higher value to the company than workers who didn’t have a record.

“Americans with disabilities just want a second chance at finding a new job,” said Bertram. “We know from our experience people are grateful for new opportunities and are willing to work hard for the companies employing them.”

Employers can commit discrimination by not checking the background of Americans with disabilities, according to Accurate Information Systems. By not checking background, an organization would be treating an American with a disability differently than a candidate without a disability. The Americans with Disabilities Act insures people with disabilities aren’t treated differently in the criminal justice system.

To check and see if there is anything in your background that doesn’t belong, you can use a third party to conduct the research on yourself. If there is incorrect information, contact the company or agency that is providing the information and dispute the error and then file a complaint with the Federal Trade Commission to have the background check investigated.

“It’s very helpful to check out your record before you start applying for jobs,” said Bertram. “You should also Google yourself to see if there is any incorrect information about you.”

However, if you do have a criminal record when applying for a job, you should also be aware that your criminal offense will eliminate possibility you from consideration. For example, if you have been convicted of a financial wrongdoing, you probably aren’t going to be considered for a bank teller job. Also, be truthful on the application about the criminal record. By not including the information, will be considered deceitful once they conduct a background check.

“Companies are focused on getting the best employee possible, regardless of their history,” said Bertram. “Human resource professionals say they are willing to work with people with criminal records. Just stress your willingness to make contributions to society, and, if you have it, stress long work history.”

If you are an individual with a disability and interested in coming back to the workplace, take advantage of LandAjob’s job resources and job-expense reimbursements of up to $13,000 by registering at http://laj.work/recordreg.

Assault and discrimination trial starts Nov. 4 over guard’s claims against private prison operator GEO Group

A lieutenant’s harassment escalated until he tried to run down the pregnant black corrections officer, who later lost her baby, according to a lawsuit

This is one of the most horrifying cases that I’ve ever seen of a company’s managers targeting and harassing a female employee. The racist remarks started on Day One… and quickly escalated…”

— Attorney Raymond Babaian

SAN BERNARDINO, CALIF., USA, October 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Private prison company GEO Group goes on trial Nov. 4 for alleged assault, racial discrimination, sexual harassment and retaliation against an African American corrections officer.

The illegal activity started on Ashly Broussard’s first day of work, and a lieutenant and others increasingly harassed her and even tried to run her over with a car — causing a miscarriage, according to her lawsuit.

Trial is set for 11 a.m. Monday, Nov. 4, in Dept. S-26 at San Bernardino Superior Court, 247 W. Third St., San Bernardino.

“This is one of the most horrifying cases that I’ve ever seen of a company’s managers targeting and harassing a female employee,” said Raymond Babaian, founding partner of Valiant Law, who represents the plaintiff. “The racist remarks started on Day One, then included sexual harassment and quickly escalated over the next few months — especially after the victim complained to human resources at GEO Group.”

According to the lawsuit, a black inmate spat on Broussard on her first day of work inside the prison. She immediately told a supervisor, Lieutenant Laurel Withers, who pulled the inmate into an office where Broussard had been directed to write a report about the incident.

“Withers began to aggressively cuss at the detainee and began a pattern of referring to African American detainees as ‘black mother—-ers’ and ‘n—–s’,” according to the complaint. Shocked, Broussard shook her head in disbelief. Withers immediately confronted her and demanded to know if she had “a problem,” according to the complaint. Then, after pointing out that the room had no surveillance camera, he encouraged her to take revenge on the prisoner for spitting on her. “What do you want to do about it? I’ll turn around,” he said, according to the complaint.

In the following days, other supervisors showed Broussard areas of the prison without cameras where she could assault detainees, the complaint states.

A few weeks later, Withers allegedly exposed himself to her when the two were alone in an area near a bathroom. He continued to make sexually suggestive comments and lewd gestures, and created and maintained a hostile work environment, according to the complaint.

Three months later, Broussard was walking through the prison parking lot when she noticed a car speeding towards her. Afraid for her life, she ran out of the way and found shelter behind parked cars. Withers was driving the speeding car, according to the complaint. A prison surveillance video of the incident has since disappeared.
Other prison staff also threatened Broussard, calling her a snitch and a rat after she filed a report against Withers, the complaint says.

The harassment, hostile work environment and assault, “had a significant impact on her health and well being during her pregnancy,” and she was constantly denied proper rest breaks, the complaint states. One day during her shift, Broussard experienced immense pain, cramping and bleeding. She asked for permission to leave work early to seek urgent medical help; she was not only denied, but forced to work an additional six hours without a break, the complaint states.

When Broussard finally got to a doctor, she learned she had suffered a miscarriage. When she took leave following the miscarriage, GEO fired her.

Broussard is suing Geo Group and Withers for assault, sexual assault, sexual harassment, discrimination, creating a hostile work environment and retaliation, among other causes.

“Ashly suffered greatly through a continuous onslaught of harassment, discrimination, and threats, including a very real attempt to cause her bodily harm. The GEO Group and its managers bear responsibility for the loss of her unborn child. She hopes this trial will help bring an end to these kinds of illegal treatment of women prison guards, and show that no agency is exempt from the law,” Babaian said.

The case number is CIVDS1722295.

Valiant Law of Ontario, Calif., represents various individuals and entities in all aspects of employment claims, including harassment and discrimination, and wage and hour class actions in state and federal courts, with more than a decade of legal practice in Southern California, including the Inland Empire, Los Angeles, Orange County, Riverside, San Diego County, as well as Las Vegas

U.S. District Court Rejects Challenge to Anti-Animal Fighting Law by Cockfighters in Puerto Rico

Cockfighting Match

Cockfighting Ring

Animal Wellness Action calls on cockfighters to adhere to the law and stop subjecting birds to these staged acts of cruelty

The Congress, the Federal Courts, and the U.S. Department of Justice have been crystal clear on the matter: engage in animal fighting activities and risk going to prison.”

— Wayne Pacelle, founder of Animal Wellness Action

SAN JUAN , PUERTO RICO , USA , October 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In an order issued this week, U.S. District Court Judge Gustavo A. Gelpi rejected claims by Club Gallistico and other cockfighters in Puerto Rico challenging an amendment to the Animal Welfare Act that seeks to apply our federal anti-animal fighting laws to all parts of the United States, including the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico.

Judge Gelpi granted the motion for summary judgment from the United States, declaring that “[n]either the Commonwealth’s political statues, nor the Territorial Clause, impede the United States Government from enacting laws that apply to all citizens of this Nation alike, whether as a state or territory.” The case came before the U.S. District Court in Puerto Rico, and a decision was widely anticipated before the December 20th effective date of the latest amendments to the federal anti-animal fighting law. The legal principles addressed in the ruling apply equally to all U.S. territories.

“This order, rejecting the claims of cockfighters in Puerto Rico, is yet one more judicial ruling that establishes that the United States has the authority to outlaw staged animal fights in the U.S. Territories, and it has done so,” said Wayne Pacelle, founder of Animal Wellness Action, which led the fight for the upgraded anti-animal fighting law. “The Congress, the Federal Courts, and the U.S. Department of Justice have been crystal clear on the matter: engage in animal fighting activities and risk going to prison.”

In December of last year, President Trump signed the Agricultural Improvement Act of 2018 into law. That authorizing legislation, aggregating a range of policy ideas related to food and agriculture, contained a number of animal welfare amendments, including language eliminating remnant language that some territory leaders believed exempted them from the reach of the federal prohibitions against cockfighting.

Former Representative Peter Roskam, R-Ill., and current Representative Earl Blumenauer, D-Ore., carried the amendment to upgrade the animal fighting law in 2018, securing a win on the provision by a vote of 351 to 50. Senators Cory Booker, D-N.J., Susan Collins, R-Maine, and Richard Blumenthal, R-Conn., carried a similar bill in the Senate and lobbied to retain the House-passed bill in the final conference report on the Agricultural Improvement Act. The anti-animal fighting provision was retained in the final bill, but with a one-year delay on its implementation. Again, it takes effect December 20th.

In May, Club Gallistico de Puerto Rico sued the federal government challenging the law. The U.S. Department of Justice filed a motion in response, emphatically arguing that most animal fighting activities are already illegal in the territories and the upgrade of the law, set to take effect on December 20th, simply builds on the roster of prohibited activities. “Just as courts have unanimously affirmed the ability of the federal government to restrict animal fighting in the fifty states, so too may it do so with respect to the territories,” wrote the attorneys representing the United States.

According to the Department of Justice in its motion, the upgrade in the law stipulated that cockfighters “may not sponsor or exhibit cockfights, just as prior to §12616 they were prohibited from attending cockfights, possessing game cocks, or engaging in other animal fighting practices that were prohibited both in Puerto Rico and nationwide.”

“Cockfighting is a settled matter, as a question of moral conduct and law,” said Drew Edmondson, who served as Oklahoma Attorney General for 16 years and co-chairs the Animal Wellness National Law Enforcement Council. During Edmondson’s third term, voters outlawed animal fighting, making it the 48th state to ban the practice. Edmondson defended the law in the courts, and the Oklahoma Supreme Court unanimously affirmed that, as written, the law was constitutional and a proper exercise of state authority. “This latest ruling by a federal judge reinforces the legal principle that the United States has the power to forbid staged fighting everywhere in the U.S.”

Cockfighting is both openly and clandestinely conducted in American Samoa, Guam, Northern Marianas Islands, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and, according to sources, these jurisdictions are receiving fighting birds via the U.S. Postal Service that is already a violation of federal law.

The Congress has upgraded the federal law five times in the last two decades (2002, 2007, 2008, 2013, and 2018), and made animal fighting; possessing animals for fighting; transporting fighting animals or fighting implements across national, state, or territorial lines; or bringing a minor to a fight a federal felony. It is a federal misdemeanor to attend an animal fight.

Poll Shows Majority of Americans Oppose Wild Horse Roundup Plan as BLM Scapegoating of Wild Horses Provokes Backlash

A terrifying wild horse roundup in action

A terrifying wild horse roundup in action

This dangerous proposal is the greatest threat to wild horses and burros in decades, and the American taxpayer is going to finance…upwards of $5 Billion.”

— Marty Irby, executive director at Animal Wellness Action

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, October 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — New polling released today by the American Wild Horse Campaign finds a strong bipartisan majority of Americans oppose a new plan to round up mass numbers of federally protected wild horses and burros from America’s Western public lands. The plan, which would reduce wild herds by 70%, is currently being touted by Acting Bureau of Land Management (BLM) Director, William Perry Pendley and livestock industry lobbyists, but is opposed by the vast majority of wild horse protection and animal welfare organizations. Pendley is expected to make an appearance at the BLM National Wild Horse and Burro Advisory Board meeting in Washington, DC on Wednesday.

“Our recent polling documents that the nearly three in four Americans oppose the costly and cruel mass roundup and incarceration plan for America’s cherished wild free-roaming horses and burros,” said Suzanne Roy, Executive Director of the American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC). “Americans do not want their tax dollars used to clear the public lands of wild horses and burros in order to replace these iconic animals with subsidized commercial livestock.”

“This dangerous proposal is the greatest threat to wild horses and burros in decades, and the American taxpayer is going to finance the whole shebang – even the BLM has admitted removals could cost upwards of $5 Billion,” said Marty Irby, Executive Director at Animal Wellness Action and a lifelong horseman. “If this ghastly proposal is executed, we’ll see massive roundups, swelling captive wild horse populations, and jubilation from the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association that secured political cover from the Humane Society of the U.S., Humane Society Legislative Fund, and ASPCA for their long-time aspiration to cement a government-funded wild horse depopulation program.”

The Public Policy Polling survey conducted a poll of 686 registered voters on Oct 25-27 last weekend and found:

– 74% of respondents oppose the removal of nearly two-thirds of the wild horses and burros living free on America’s public lands today.

– 78% oppose the holding of tens of thousands of more horses and burros in pens and pastures at taxpayer expense, which could increase pressure to slaughter these animals over the long run.

– 79% of Americans oppose the surgical sterilization of wild mares (female horses) via a procedure that removes their ovaries.

At the same time, conservationists are reacting strongly to BLM chief Pendley’s recent claim that wild horses are “an existential threat” to the public lands, particularly given the fact that 88% of BLM land has no wild horses on it.

In response, Erik Molvar, wildlife biologist and Executive Director of the Western Watersheds Project, wrote, “Pendley’s misstatements about wild horses and the magnitude of environmental threats on the lands that his agency manages speaks either to a monumental incompetence and ignorance, or to an aggressive dishonesty and commitment to a “fake news” approach to informing the public about Western public lands.”

Last week, Molvar – a leading expert on the environmental threats to Western public lands posed by commercial livestock grazing – joined Nevada business leaders and wild horse advocates at a press conference in Reno to address the propaganda campaign being waged against wild horses, stating, “The administration’s obsession with wild horses, while turning a blind eye to the real and serious problems that livestock overgrazing causes on these same lands demonstrates a systematic myopia and willful desire to ignore and perpetuate ecological problems caused by the livestock industry.”

An editorial in last week’s High Country News, a non-profit magazine and news operation dedicated to informing and inspiring people to act on behalf of the West’s natural and human communities, echoed Molvar’s sentiments.

“The real problem with wild horses is that there’s no money to be made from them. And by focusing on them, Pendley hopes to divert our attention from the true threat to public lands: unbridled greed,” the editorial concluded, referencing Pendley’s history of fighting for the “private property rights” of extractive industries (oil/gas/mining/livestock) to exploit the public lands.

According to AWHC, the intensifying propaganda campaign by Pendley and his industry allies against wild horses is aimed at convincing Congress to fund the expensive new plan to clear the public lands of virtually every wild horse and burro remaining wild today. Misleadingly dubbed a “Path Forward for Wild Horse and Burro Management,” the plan would accelerate the removal (by helicopter roundup) of wild mustangs from public lands and allow for inhumane management methods, such as cruel surgeries to sterilize wild mares by ripping out their ovaries. Although billed as a “non-lethal plan,” the proposal actually makes slaughter more likely over the long run by dramatically increasing the number of horses and burros maintained in captivity at taxpayer expense with no guarantee of funding for their long-term care.

The plan is opposed by the vast majority of animal welfare and wild horse protection organizations.

The American Wild Horse Campaign, Animal Wellness Action, and The Cloud Foundation will hold a congressional briefing, Thursday, October 31, 2019, from 12:30 – 1:30 in the House Natural Resources Committee Room, Longworth HOB 1334. Members of the media are encouraged and welcomed to attend.

The American Wild Horse Campaign (AWHC) is the nation’s leading wild horse protection organization, with more than 700,000 supporters and followers nationwide. AWHC is dedicated to preserving the American wild horse and burros in viable, free-roaming herds for generations to come, as part of our national heritage. In addition to advocating for protection and preservation of America’s wild herds, AWHC implements the largest wild horse fertility control program in the world through a partnership with the State of Nevada for wild horses that live in the Virginia Range near Reno.

Animal Wellness Action (Action) is a Washington, D.C.-based 501(c)(4) organization with a mission of helping animals by promoting legal standards forbidding cruelty. We champion causes that alleviate the suffering of companion animals, farm animals, and wildlife. We advocate for policies to stop dogfighting and cockfighting and other forms of malicious cruelty and to confront factory farming and other systemic forms of animal exploitation. To prevent cruelty, we promote enacting good public policies and we work to enforce those policies. To enact good laws, we must elect good lawmakers, and that’s why we remind voters which candidates care about our issues and which ones don’t. We believe helping animals helps us all.

‘Football Is a Concussion Delivery System’ – New York Brain Injury Lawyer Urges Lawmakers To Adopt Tackle Football Bill

Proposed Youth Tackle Legislation State by State Inteeractive Map

There is only one conclusion to be reached; ‘football is a concussion delivery system’. The Centers for Disease Control repeatedly confirm, ‘a concussion is a brain injury.’”

— Michael V. Kaplen

PLEASANTVILLE, NEW YORK, USA, October 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — New York brain injury lawyer, Michael V. Kaplen, is to urge lawmakers to adopt assembly bill A02692, which would prohibit tackling in youth football in the state.

Kaplen, who is a senior partner in New York firm De Caro & Kaplen, LLP, and serves as Chair of the New York State Traumatic Brain Injury Services Coordinating Council, will address the New York State Assembly, Health Committee’s public hearing on Tuesday.

In his statement Kaplen will say that permitting children to engage in tackle football is “equivalent to allowing them to play Russian roulette.”

Kaplen, who has been a vocal advocate of prohibitions on youth tackle football, and maintains a page tracking tackle football legislation on his firm’s website brainlaw.com, will also state that, “Repetitive head trauma in football poses a significant danger. Children who engage in tackle football have a greater risk of sustaining a life-altering brain injury. It is long overdue for us to protect our children’s brains and prevent needless and preventable injuries.”

The hearing is expected to include contributions from medical experts, representatives from youth football organizations, and former NFL players.

And Kaplen will argue that the medical evidence clearly shows that a ban is necessary, “There is only one conclusion to be reached; ‘football is a concussion delivery system’. The Centers for Disease Control repeatedly confirm, ‘a concussion is a brain injury.’”

If adopted, Assemblyman Benedetto’s bill, titled “An act to amend the public health law, in relation to prohibiting children twelve years old and younger from playing tackle Football” would prohibit the playing of organized tackle football for children age twelve and younger in New York State.

The public hearing will take place at 10am Tuesday in New York City.

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, October 28, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Infamously outspoken Ann Coulter, author of over thirteen New York Times best-selling books, enjoyed an interview on KCAA Radio’s law-themed show, For the People, hosted by Judge Herb Dodell and Gary Garver, speaking on impeachment, the country’s divide, why she feels women shouldn’t have the right to vote and why she’s called a pundit.

“They call me a pundit just so they don’t have to call me a bestselling author,” quipped Coulter.

Coulter, who voted for President Trump, said she enjoys his passion and honesty on Twitter.

“I like that the president is so transparent,” said Coulter. “What’s great about his tweeting is you get a bird’s eye view on what the president is thinking. We pretty much know it all, just follow him on Twitter.”

About Judge Herb Dodell:

When I decided to write a book, my wife, Shelli, asked me two questions. Why was I writing it and for whom? After a great deal of thought and introspection the answers were clear. I wanted to use my many years of experience as a trial lawyer and the experience I was getting as a judge to help the public deal with the anxieties and stresses that come from an involvement with the legal system. Most people know little about how the legal system really works. When exposed to it, they are faced with anxiety over what to do and fearful about the uncertainty over what to expect, how to get the right lawyer, their exposure and the expense. What is likely to happen? This is an emotional time. Knowing what to expect and how to deal with it is reassuring. For some, they just want to learn about the legal system. The book provides information for them. For those caught up in the legal system or who are about to get caught up in it, whether it is small claims court, restraining orders, general litigation, an eviction or a criminal matter, my intention is to give them practical guidelines from someone who has been there from the day-to-day battles to the perspective of the judge. What can they anticipate? What should they do? How should they deal with it? This book will tell them what they need to know so that they can navigate the legal system and make better choices. Much of what happens is ego dominated. By using the spiritual technology outlined for each subject they can reduce or eliminate the chaos and uncertainty and replace it with order and fulfillment. The result is less anxiety and stress plus a saving of time and money. The stories and cases provide illustrations about what can happen. The bottom line is that I wanted to provide a book that was informative, entertaining, practical and with a spiritual component.
