WASHINGTON, DC, USA, August 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell today announced his intent to introduce the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act, compromise legislation that would end the doping of Thoroughbred racehorses in the United States.

The doping of American racehorses has been a controversial issue over the past five years with hundreds of horses dying on racetracks weekly, and the indictment of 37 trainers and veterinarians in March of 2020.

Animal Wellness Action (AWA) has been a leader in the effort to end doping and is a member of the Coalition for Horseracing Integrity Act, H.R. 1754/S. 1820 with 257 House cosponsors and 26 Senate cosponsors. AWA’s executive director, Marty Irby, testified before Congress in support of the measure to end doping in January.

“The Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act will bring 16 hands of integrity back to American horseracing by banning race-day doping,” said Marty Irby, a lifelong horseman and executive director at Animal Wellness Action. “U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and others are right to press the industry to create a uniform anti-doping standard that will protect the horses and the sport against the worst impulses of some of its actors.”

“Kentucky is proud of our distinct horseracing traditions. We must address the challenges the sport faces so we can preserve our heritage and the jobs of over 24,000 Kentuckians who support it,” said U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. “As Senate Majority Leader, I look forward to working with Congressman Barr and our colleagues across the aisle on our legislation to give federal recognition to the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority. Together, we can better protect every competitor and give each of them a fair shot at the Winner’s Circle.”

Building on the Horseracing Integrity Act, McConnell’s Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act (HISA) is landmark legislation that would directly address the safety and welfare of racehorses, and the integrity of the sport itself, through better anti-doping measures and racetrack safety standards.

In an illustration of the broad industry support for change, this bill is now supported by all three Triple Crown racetracks, as Churchill Downs has endorsed the bill for the first time. The effort continues to enjoy the support of the Coalition for Horse Racing Integrity (CHRI), which includes the Jockey Club, the Breeders Cup, Keeneland Racecourse, the Thoroughbred Owners & Breeders Association, the Water Hay Oats Alliance, and animal welfare groups like Animal Wellness Action.

The fractured nature of anti-doping and track safety efforts across the U.S.’s 38 racing jurisdictions has undermined the public’s confidence in horseracing, threatened the integrity of competition, and endangered the human and equine athletes. Enactment of the HISA will address these problems head on while helping to enhance the public’s interest in this very important industry. For the safety of the horses and jockeys, and for the sport of horseracing itself, American horseracing needs the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Act of 2020.

Key Provisions
In order to create these uniform performance and safety standards for the sport of horseracing, the HISA creates the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority, which is a private, independent, self-regulatory, nonprofit organization. It will not be funded by the federal government – the horseracing industry will pay the funds necessary for the establishment and administration of the Authority. The Authority is tasked with developing and implementing both a horseracing anti-doping and medication control program and a racetrack safety program.

Composition of the Authority
The Authority will be governed by a Board of Directors consisting of nine members. Five of those members will be independent of the industry, and four members will be experts from the following sectors of the industry: owners and breeders, trainers, racetracks, veterinarians, State racing commissions, and jockeys. To assist with the development of these programs, the Board will establish an anti-doping and medication control standing committee and a racetrack safety standing committee, both controlled by independent members outside the industry. All independent members of the Board and standing committees will be subject to strict conflict-of-interest standards.

Anti-Doping Program
The Authority will be required to create a set of uniform anti-doping rules, including lists of prohibited substances and methods, protocols around the administration of permitted substances, and laboratory testing accreditation and protocols. These permitted and prohibited substances and practices will be developed after taking into consideration international anti-doping standards and veterinarian ethical standards, along with consulting racing industry representatives and the public. The new nationwide rules would replace the current patchwork of regulatory systems that govern horseracing’s 38 separate racing jurisdictions. For services related to the enforcement of this program, the Authority shall enter into an agreement with the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, which has a proven track record of conducting anti-doping and medication control activities for all U.S. Olympic athletes and its approach can easily be adapted to horseracing.

Racetrack Safety Program
To protect the health and safety of racehorses and jockeys, the Authority will also create a racetrack safety program, consisting of a uniform set of training and racing safety standards and protocols. Those standards include racetrack design and maintenance, oversight of human and equine injury reporting and prevention, and the procedures for undertaking investigations at racetrack and non-racetrack facilities related to safety violations. The Authority creates an accreditation program to ensure that racetracks comply with these safety procedures, and in order to continue gather information on racetrack safety, the Authority will establish a nationwide database of racehorse safety, performance, health, and injury information within one year of the establishment of the program.

Columbus, Ohio Lawyer Shawn Dominy Named to Best Lawyers In America For DUI Defense and Criminal Defense

Attorney Shawn Dominy, Columbus, OH

Attorney Shawn Dominy

COLUMBUS, OH, UNITED STATES, August 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Since 1983, Best Lawyers® has been publishing a list of the Best Lawyers In America®. Over the last 37 years, the publication has grown in scope and has added categories for various areas of law. The annual list has a category for criminal defense, and a sub-category for DUI defense. Attorney Shawn Dominy was named to the 2021 Best Lawyers list for criminal defense and DUI defense.

Dominy commented, “It’s an honor to be named as one of the best lawyers in America. Practicing law is not a competition, and lists of top lawyers are subjective, so it’s hard to say who is the ‘best’. However, it’s still fulfilling to know I was named as one of the best criminal defense and DUI defense lawyers in Ohio. That is particularly true when the nomination and voting was done by my peers for a list which is not merely an advertising platform.”

Best Lawyers® is, in fact, not an advertising platform. In the words of Best Lawyers®: “Recognition by Best Lawyers is based entirely on peer review. Our methodology is designed to capture, as accurately as possible, the consensus opinion of leading lawyers about the professional abilities of their colleagues within the same geographical area and legal practice area.”

In the case of Ohio criminal defense lawyers, that means other defense lawyers in the state of Ohio nominated Dominy for consideration. It also means his nomination was reviewed by peers who determined he should be named as one of the best criminal defense and DUI defense lawyers in Ohio.

Shawn Dominy has practiced criminal defense for 27 years and is currently the president of the Ohio Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers. He is the state delegate to the National College for DUI Defense and a founding member of the national DUI Defense Lawyers Association. Dominy wrote a book on DUI defense, has many published articles, and regularly lectures at seminars on topics related to DUI Defense and criminal defense. He is the founder of the Dominy Law Firm, a boutique firm in Columbus, Ohio which represents clients for DUI/OVI and criminal charges throughout central Ohio.

Few lawyers are named as Best Lawyers In America®. The publication “highlights the top 6% of private practicing attorneys in the United States.” In Ohio, a state of approximately 38,000 lawyers, only six lawyers are listed in Best Lawyers In America® for the practice area of DUI defense.

Dominy stated, “I began focusing on DUI defense in 2002 after realizing this type of litigation is challenging and deceptively complex. I enjoy the challenge, I like helping my clients, and I feel like I’m doing important work because it involves protecting individual rights, and that has an impact on everyone in Ohio and the nation.”

VICE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE SPIKE COHEN STUMPS IN OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA

Libertarian Party VP to Speak at Empowerment Park on Thursday from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm

California’s government has encroached on you and with disastrous results: people and businesses fleeing for greener pastures, rampant homelessness and a growing gap between the rich and everyone else”

— Jeremy "Spike" Cohen

OAKLAND, CALIFORNIA, USA, August 31, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Libertarian Party of California proudly announces that Jeremy “Spike” Cohen, the 2020 Libertarian Party candidate for Vice President, will speak at a rally in Oakland, California this Thursday, September 3, 2020 at Empowerment Park, 462 Belleview Ave. Spike is running with the Libertarian Presidential candidate, Jo Jorgensen, and together they are promoting pragmatic libertarian values. More about the Jorgensen-Cohen ticket can be found here at the campaign’s official website: https://jo20.com.

Throughout the tour, Cohen has been emphasizing the campaign’s mission of reducing big government in such areas as criminal justice, gun rights, government spending and debt, and creating a truly free market in healthcare.

Mr. Cohen shared, “I’m so excited to be stopping in San Diego, Huntington Beach and Oakland to speak with Californians about the issues they are facing. For far too long, California’s government has increasingly encroached on your lives, rights and properties and we’ve seen the disastrous results: people and businesses fleeing for greener pastures, rampant homelessness and a wide and growing gap between the rich and everyone else. California will rise again if we vote for Libertarian Jo Jorgensen.”

Regarding race relations and social justice: “Republicans and Democrats fighting over who has the Black vote is demonstrative of the two-party system today”, Cohen explains. “An entire race of people isn’t a voting bloc that you can trade back and forth with empty promises. Individuals are more than that.”

Mimi Robson, Chair of the Libertarian Party of California said, “I’m excited to welcome Mr. Cohen to the rally stage in Oakland to show local voters a candidate who will go to Washington to effect real change for real people.” Pointing out that the criminal justice system has been unequally administered against marginalized minorities, Robson lamented the Democrats and Republicans in Congress merely pay lip service to their constituents. “The Jorgensen-Cohen ticket on the other hand, has doggedly promoted practical solutions that would end systematic racism. Policies like abolishing the racist drug war, ending qualified immunity for law enforcement and lifting barriers to job creation such as daunting occupational licensing requirements.”

But accidents do happen and in some cases they may be due to negligence or other issues. The lay person may suffer an injury, reach out to the vendor’s insurance company, and come away dissatisfied.

Dallas will contest attorney

Dallasprobateattorneys.com a team of attorneys focused on probate, trust, and estate litigation attorneys announces new information pages.

Many educated people struggle to understand the complexities of will, estates, and trusts under Texas law.”

— Elliott Burdette

DALLAS, TEXAS, USA, August 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dallasprobateattorneys.com, a cooperative that brings together a team of highly motivated probate, trust, and estate dispute attorneys in Dallas, is proud to announce a new information page on "will contests" under Texas law. Many users search for "Texas will contest attorneys" when confronting a probate, estate, or trust dispute. The new page is a first step towards educating the public.

"Many educated people struggle to understand the complexities of will, estates, and trusts under Texas law," explained Elliott Burdette, managing director at the service. "This problem becomes even more acute when the person faces what the lay public often calls a 'will contest.' They search for a Texas 'will contest' lawyer, and our first job is to educate them on the basic issues and then begin to explain how these cases are won. Our new information page is step one in this process."

Interested persons can find the new page at https://www.dallasprobateattorneys.com/practice-areas/will-contests/. The page explains the basics of will contests under Texas law, but is only an introduction. To obtain legal advice, interested persons are urged to click on the "contact" tab and reach out for an attorney consultation. The attorneys are a team of highly motivated and specialized Dallas-based lawyers who can help with an initial consultation, a review of the facts, and an assessment in accordance with Texas law.

BLENDED FAMILIES SPUR THE NEED FOR INHERITANCE DISPUTE LAWYERS

Here is background about this release. American society has changed dramatically since the 1960s. In the 1960s, nuclear families were intact; nowadays many families are what are known as "blended families." The partners may have been divorced, there may be children from first or second marriages, and all of this complicates the distribution of property after the death of a parent. Often, disputes arise around the estate, trust, retirement accounts, or other properties involved. Texas probate, estate, and trust law is complicated and full of traps for the unwary. The dramatic increase in "blended families" is an additional complicating factor.

For this reason, the new group of attorneys at dallasprobateattorneys.com has announced a series of information pages that are a starting point for one's self education. For example, there is a page on Texas community property (https://www.dallasprobateattorneys.com/practice-areas/community-property/), which touches on many of the challenges faced by blended families during a potential estate or inheritance dispute. In all cases, it is highly recommended that the interested party reach out to an attorney for a consultation.
