— North Dakota US Navy Lung Cancer Advocate

FARGO, NORTH DAKOTA, USA, September 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The North Dakota US Navy Veterans Lung Cancer says, "We are urging a Navy Veteran with lung cancer in North Dakota or their family to please call the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303 about compensation if the Veteran had heavy exposure to asbestos on a navy ship or submarine. The financial compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the financial claim does not involve suing the navy. The typical person we are trying to identify is over 60 years old and their asbestos exposure took place prior to 1982.

"Most Navy Veterans or people who had heavy asbestos exposure to asbestos decades ago and who now have lung cancer are not aware the $30 billion asbestos trust funds were set up for them too. The lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste have been assisting Navy Veterans and people with asbestos exposure lung cancer and mesothelioma in North Dakota and nationwide for decades and they are responsible for over a billion dollars in compensation for people like this. If your husband or dad is a Navy Veteran over 60 years old with lung cancer and you know he had heavy exposure to asbestos in the service-please call the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303-we think you will be glad you did." www.karstvonoiste.com/

Acclaimed Attorney, Timothy McFarlin, Examines the Spike in Mortgage Delinquencies as an Ominous Sign for Housing Prices

Timothy McFarlin

By Timothy McFarlin

LOS ANGELES, CA, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The shockingly high delinquency rates for mortgage loans (1-4 units) has been out for about a month now, and no one seems to care. It seems this “leading indicator” is being shrugged off by the housing market as prices have not moved at all. This is a dangerous statistic to ignore!

In April 2020 6.1% of mortgages were delinquent by at least 30 days (according to Core Logic), this is the highest delinquency rate in 21 years. Prior to April, the delinquency rates had declined for 27 consecutive months and foreclosures were at record lows. As forbearance periods come to a close and the economy remains at a standstill, it is very likely these delinquencies become foreclosures, especially as unemployment reached its highest level in 80 years.

The adverse effect of this on the overall housing market can not be overstated. As homes begin to go to foreclosure, or get liquidated by the homeowner to at least recover some equity, prices decline quickly as we saw in 2007-2009. Just a few foreclosures in a neighborhood can destroy the comps (comparable sales), giving appraisers no choice but to value the home lower and hindering the ability for a buyer to even get a loan on a declining asset, no matter how low the rate may be.

To put this delinquency rate in perspective, during the peak of the previous housing downturn in November 2008, delinquencies were only at 2%. Further, the Core Logic data suggests the areas hit hardest with delinquencies are also those hit hardest with COVID such as Miami and New York City.

As delinquencies continue to increase, the housing market suffers downward price pressure. Although a recovery is always possible, it seems we are on the verge of another home value correction which may catch many by surprise.

If you feel you may be at risk of losing your home or would like to discuss foreclosure issues, McFarlin LLP is here to help. There are some government programs on the horizon which may stem the tide of foreclosures, but we must stay ahead of the problem.

Bill Lockyer reflects on close to six decades of personal and professional accolades

Bill Lockyer

Bill Lockyer

Attorney and former elected official Bill Lockyer looks back on his years of work in California politics.

SAN FRANCISCO , CA, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Born in Oakland, California, in 1941, retired politician Bill Lockyer has enjoyed almost 60 years of personal and professional achievements since taking up studies at the University of California back in the 1960s. From serving as Treasurer of California, and as the state's Attorney General, to being responsible for the famous San Francisco Bay Trail, proud father of four Lockyer looks back on close to six decades of life after graduating from high school, more than two-thirds of which were spent firmly in the public eye.

"For more than 40 years, I spent my life squarely in the public eye," says attorney and former elected official Bill Lockyer, "until my retirement from politics in 2015."

Bill Lockyer has filled a wealth of roles in Californian politics, including 32nd Treasurer of California, 30th Attorney General of California, and president pro tempore of the California Senate. Lockyer has also served as a Member of the California Senate from the 10th district and a Member of the California State Assembly from the 14th district.

As a young man, Bill Lockyer attended the University of California, Berkeley, graduating with a bachelor's degree in political science in 1965. "The following year, I received a teaching credential from California State University in Hayward, then worked for my father's roofing company, and as a forklift truck driver, before turning my hand to politics," reveals Lockyer.

Bill Lockyer began his political career as a school board member of the San Leandro Unified School District, and as chair of the Alameda County Democratic Central Committee. Lockyer's first major role within the local legislature, meanwhile, was on the staff of assemblyman and mentor, Robert W. Crown.

Following Crown's untimely passing in 1973, after he was struck and killed by a car while jogging, Bill Lockyer won his first California State Assembly seat during a special election held in September of the same year. The previous year, Lockyer had served as California coordinator of Senator George McGovern's 1972 campaign for the United States presidency.

Quickly making a name for himself in politics, he then served in the legislature for the next twenty-five years. During this time, Bill Lockyer attended and later graduated, in 1986, from the University of the Pacific with a degree in law. Eight years later, he was chosen by his peers to become the California State Senate's president pro tempore – the most powerful position of the upper legislative house.

Bill Lockyer is also celebrated as the name behind the San Francisco Bay Trail—a 500-mile bicycle and pedestrian loop around the famous Californian bay, still under construction—first envisioned by Lockyer in the 1980s. In 2010, the attorney and former elected official even gave his name to a popular bridge crossing on the route, which now covers more than 350 miles. "Back in 2010, the Bill Lockyer Bay Trail Bridge was born," he reveals, "linking San Leandro and Oakland International Airport."

A proud father of four, retired politician Bill Lockyer today resides happily between Hayward and Long Beach, California. A lifelong bibliophile, he maintains an extensive library of books and has a particular passion for history, mysteries, and crime novels.

The Steinberg Law Group has the experiences, resources and results to obtain the maximum financial compensation for veterans

The asbestos industry knowingly poisoned people for decades.

Asbestos was used in numerous automotive parts for decades.

The asbestos industry knowingly poisoned people for decades.

Inhaling one fiber of asbestos is enough to cause mesothelioma decades later.

The Mesothelioma Options Help Center of Florida Endorses the Steinberg Law Group as the Best Mesothelioma and Asbestos Law Firm – Experience/Resources/Results

MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, September 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Mesothelioma Options Help Center of Florida is dedicated to providing the best possible legal and medical assistance to those stricken with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer. Anyone wishing to discuss their legal and/or medical options should call (888) 891-2200 to speak directly with an attorney from The Steinberg Law Group.

The Mesothelioma Options Help Center of Florida has endorsed The Steinberg Law Group because of their vast experience in handling mesothelioma and other asbestos-related cases. With offices in New York, California and Texas, The Steinberg Law Group has a national footprint that helps win the best possible financial compensation for clients.

Typically, asbestos exposure will have occurred sometime between the 1950s and the 1980s. Some of the most prevalent professions that encountered large quantities of asbestos include power plant workers, maritime workers, industrial workers, plumbers, pipefitters, electricians, mechanics, machinists, miners, railroad workers and construction workers, to name a few. Since the latency period for mesothelioma patients is approximately 40 years, most people diagnosed with mesothelioma or asbestos-related lung cancer in 2020 were exposed decades ago.

Although asbestos does not naturally occur in Florida, thousands of tons of asbestos were shipped to Florida for processing in Boca Raton, Jacksonville, Pompano Beach, St. Petersburg and Tampa. As a result, numerous buildings in the state of Florida contain asbestos. In addition to the asbestos processing plants mentioned above, asbestos was used in the construction and mining industries as well as at shipyards, power plants, chemical plants, auto repair shops, schools and metal works factories throughout the state.

Known jobsites, companies and locations with asbestos exposure in Florida include, but are not limited to, Big Bear Powerhouse, Crist Power Plant, St. Lucie Nuclear Power Plant, U.S. Sugar and Vero Beach Municipal Power Plant, Mulberry Phosphate Mine, DuPont Corp., Eustis Housing Project, Jacksonville Grammar School, NASA, Florida State University, Atlantic Dry Dock, The Hendry Corporation, Offshore Shipbuilding Co., Tampa Bay Shipbuilding, Gulf Marine Repair Corporation, Mayport Navy Station and Pensacola Naval Air Station.

For the best possible medical treatment for mesothelioma and asbestos-related lung cancer, call (888) 891-2200 so a member of The Steinberg Law Group can determine which hospital/doctor in our network is most convenient for you.

States with the highest incidence of mesothelioma include Oregon, Washington, Louisiana, Minnesota, North Dakota, Michigan, Illinois, Virginia, West Virginia, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Maryland, Massachusetts, Maine and Connecticut.

Christopher Columbus - The Great Explorer

Learn the true facts about the Great Explorer

BLOOMFIELD, NJ, USA, September 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Italian American ONE VOICE Coalition (“IAOVC”), a nationwide coalition of anti-bias activists, secured funding for its litigation efforts defending Italian American civil rights and restoration of Columbus statues and monuments, and seeks additional financial support for other potential legal actions across the country.

Recently, IAOVC filed a landmark federal litigation in Federal US District Court against The Township of West Orange, NJ, seeking an injunction to have the Christopher Columbus statue returned to its original location. This important first legal action, and other litigation activities, have been financially supported by IAOVC Board members, IAOVC Coalition Organization members, Sal Davino and, most recently, with a significant grant from the Anti-Bias Committee of UNICO (see photo).

“We appreciate the generous funding we just received from the Anti-Bias Committee of UNICO, as well as the financial support of our IAOVC Board Members, Coalition Organizations and members across the country,” stated Dr. Manny Alfano, founder and president of IAOVC. “But we need more financial help as we bring this fight for our heritage across the country.”

IAOVC is working with Italian American groups and individuals nationwide opposing the destruction or removal of Columbus statues and monuments. Rallies, petitions, email and phone campaigns have been launched opposing the recent proliferation of attacks on Columbus statues and monuments. In certain areas, these were successful, with Columbus statues and monuments preserved. In others, such as West Orange, local officials ignored citizen pleas, and statues were removed. Consequently, the recently filed federal litigation by IAOVC was the next step in its activities in defending Columbus and Italian American civil rights across the country.

“The federal suit against West Orange should be an eye-opener to elected officials in every town, city and state that we will not stand by as they consider removing an important symbol of our heritage,” stated Andre DiMino, Executive Board Member of IAOVC. “When these local officials ignore our pleas, we have to seek legal action to preserve our rights.”

Columbus is an iconic symbol for Italian Americans whose ancestors fled horrible treatment and abject poverty in their homeland. Columbus statues, monuments and parades brought dignity during a period when they suffered rampant racism, discrimination and marginalization. Eleven innocent Italian Americans were lynched in the largest lynching in US history and there were other lynchings and violent acts suffered across the country. Many Columbus statues and monuments were erected as an apology for the many injustices levied on Italian Americans throughout history.

IAOVC’s sole focus and objective is to fight bias, stereotyping and discrimination against Italian Americans. It is the only national Italian American organization with this exclusive mandate. IAOVC’s stated mission is to “…secure the rightful representation of Americans of Italian origin and of all peoples whose paths toward social equality have been impeded. The powers of intellect, wisdom and due process of law will be brought to bear on all inequities.”

IAOVC issues a regular email newsletter, “The Alfano Digest,” to over 5,000 individuals and Italian American organizations nationwide. Written and compiled by IAOVC founder and President, Dr. Manny Alfano, the Digest issues alerts on instances of bias, stereotyping, discrimination and defamation as well as activates the IAOVC nationwide network of “Defenders” who respond through calls, emails, social media, letters and demonstrations where necessary. The Alfano Digest also contains interesting and informative Italian American educational, cultural and heritage news and information.

HUMAN RIGHTS TRIBUNAL OF ONTARIO SEALS SEXUAL HARASSMENT TESTIMONY AGAINST POWERFUL DOCTOR

# Medicine Too

#MEDICINETOO

Human Rights Tribunal of Ontario breaks the law to bury testimony transcript in historic #MeToo case

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, September 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Dr. Ana Safavi is taking her sexual harassment complaint against a powerful senior doctor all the way to trial. She is the first medical trainee in North America to do so. Dr. Safavi was fired in June from the Northern Ontario School of Medicine (NOSM) after refusing the medical school’s demands to mediate.

She and her witnesses are set to start testifying against the powerful doctor on Thursday. Then last week, in an unprecedented move, the HRTO preemptively sealed the transcript. The average person is denied such special requests, but the HRTO is bending the rules to protect this man's reputation.

DIFFERENT RULES FOR THE WELL-CONNECTED?

Dr. Safavi’s lawyers at Hameed Law have asked a judge to overturn the unconstitutional order. “By law, the transcript must be accessible to the public,” says Mr. Hameed. “With this decision, the HRTO is signalling that one man’s reputation is more important than a transparent justice system.”

A witness to one of the sexual harassment incidents, Mr. Brown, says he's uncomfortable testifying in secret. “What if I’m misquoted by the Tribunal? Shouldn't I be allowed to see the transcript to set the record straight?”

When Dr. Safavi first spoke with the press in February 2018, she had been suspended four days after telling NOSM’s Vice Dean about the sexual harassment. A year later, after she filed in the HRTO, NOSM’s investigator suddenly exonerated the well-connected faculty member — without interviewing him or Dr. Safavi (or her witnesses). At the same time, he stopped supervising trainees, although NOSM hid his resignation from her.

Now, she is warning the public about the crisis unfolding at the HRTO. A secretive tribunal is equally dangerous for victims and the accused, because shielding the government’s activities from public scrutiny may allow corruption to flourish unchecked. “Unlike judges, tribunal adjudicators do not have lifetime appointments,” explains Mr. Hameed. “They must seek reappointment every 2-5 years.”

HRTO CHAIR'S CONFLICT OF INTEREST?

The new HRTO Chair is former head of law firm Borden Ladner Gervais which is defending NOSM before the HRTO. A corporate lawyer with no human rights or tribunal experience, he departed BLG in June to quietly accept the “urgent” 6-month appointment which was first revealed by the press on a tip from Tribunal Watch Ontario, an organization criticizing the Ford government for letting experienced adjudicators go while stacking the HRTO with patronage appointments.

The Chair can veto appointments and reappointments, so he wields significant power over adjudicators such as the one presiding over Dr. Safavi’s case whose term expires in January. Under the Ford government, reappointments are scarce and no longer tied to performance metrics.

TRIBUNALS IN LEGAL PERIL

In July, Democracy Watch asked the Courts to declare the Ford government’s new Tribunal reappointment process unconstitutional, in part because eliminating their job security may leave adjudicators vulnerable to influence from higher-ups.

Adjudicators must remain impartial, but their decisions undergo “review”; for high-profile cases like Dr. Safavi’s, the Chair may even review the decision himself. The Courts ruled against such tribunal practices in 2019, but little appears to have changed since.

The day before the HRTO sealed the transcript, Dr. Safavi’s lawyers had asked a judge to revoke the Chair’s appointment (as against the law) and to compel the release of records that the HRTO must disclose to the public, but has not. Some of these records relate to other HRTO cases against NOSM.

CRISIS OF CONFIDENCE

Dr. Safavi worries the HRTO won’t even hear all her evidence. The defendant denied meeting with her alone, so she submitted audio recordings of the meetings to disprove his lies. But the HRTO has not acknowledged receipt of the tapes — despite receiving them both electronically and by courier.

“I feel so stupid for putting my trust in the HRTO,” says Dr. Safavi. After she filed her complaint, she began helping others do the same through her organization #MEDICINETOO. “I wanted other trainees to see a way for us to hold medical schools accountable. But how can the HRTO hold institutions accountable, if it won’t even hold itself accountable to the law?”

DOJ Investigates Harris County DA's Office In Jail Hanging of Black Man

A Texas department of criminal justice inmate who had evidence of his innocence was found dead in his cell in Harris County before a hearing could be held.

HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, September 21, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a criminal complaint filed with the civil rights division of US Department of Justice, Lamar Burks, a Texas prisoner serving a 70 year sentence for murder, alleges an attempt on his life was made upon his arrival at the Harris County Jail for an evidentiary hearing on new evidence proving his innocence. The complaint addressed to the US Assistant Attorney General for the Civil Rights Division, Eric Dreiband, alleges Harris County Assistant District Attorneys Joshua Reiss and Andrew J Smith and former DEA agent Jack Schumacher did meet and knowingly and intentionally conspire to murder Burks whom they knew was in route from the Texas Department of Criminal Justice to the Harris County Jail. The Complaint further states the attempt on Burks’ life is not an isolated incident.

In 2014 Texas Department of Criminal Justice inmate Antonio Williams, who also had favorable evidence of innocence, arrived from TDCJ to the Harris County Jail for his hearing. Before that hearing could be held, Williams was found dead in a segregated jail cell. Assistant District Attorney Joshua Reiss, lead prosecutor in the Burks case, was also assigned to the Williams case. https://www.houstonchronicle.com/news/houston-texas/houston/article/Two-witnesses-recant-in-death-penalty-case-5904803.php
https://www.houstonchronicle.com/houston/article/Death-row-inmate-found-dead-in-Harris-County-jail-6090271.php

Shortly after the filing of the complaint, Assistant District Attorney Andrew J Smith was fired by DA Kim Ogg. The Burks case attracted the attention of the NAACP and civil rights attorney Ben Crump after former DEA agent Jack Schumacher’s partner Chad Scott was convicted by a federal jury on perjury and corruption charges. https://www.click2houston.com/news/2019/11/08/activists-call-for-release-of-lamar-burks-who-was-convicted-of-1997-murder/

Schumacher himself also has a history of racial profiling and was investigated by congress in the death of 9 civilians and has been professionally disciplined 19 times. Witnesses in the Burks case have signed sworn statements stating the two former agents used threats and coercion to make them implicate Burks in the murder.

The US Attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana has requested the complaint be investigated by two ranking DOJ officials, FBI acting special agent in charge Anthony T. Riedlinger and special agent in charge Robert A Bourbon of the Justice Department’s office of inspector general. Legal analysts have cited a Texas law enacted in 2011 that disqualify the Harris County DA’s office from any involvement in the Burks case. That law, Texas Code of Criminal Procedures Articles 2.08(b), was never advanced by Burks’ attorney, Michael J Wynne, who recently withdrew from the case. Wynne, who met with federal prosecutors and FBI agents, while representing Burks, never notified the court of the federal investigation, a sanctionable offense under Texas Rules of Professional Conduct.

Burks, who has been transferred to the Texas Department of Criminal Justice out of safety concerns while his case moves through the court issued the following statement:
“There’s a proverb, ‘a dog returns to his vomit.’ When faced with a case he couldn’t win, Joshua Reiss went back to his old ways. But the Lord is with me.”

"We do not want a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma in Arkansas or their family playing lawyer roulette by calling about 'free' mesothelioma booklets and or too good to be true 'claims' centers. The VA does not sponsor 'claims' centers-these are more often than not-marketing gimmicks sponsored by law firms. A person with mesothelioma or their family does not have time for gimmicks. If a Navy Veteran with mesothelioma or their family would call attorney Erik Karst of Karst von Oiste at 800-714-0303-he will be able to help." www.karstvonoiste.com/
