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, TX, UNITED STATES, September 19, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — DOJ Investigates Harris County DA's Office
In Jail Hanging of Black Man

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.”

Interstitial Cystitis: An Unrecognized Complication of Transvaginal Mesh Slings

Dr. Greg Vigna

Dr. Greg Vigna

Pudendal neuralgia from pudendal nerve entrapment in a majority of cases produce the same urological symptoms that are described for Interstitial Cystitis.

Physicians who haven’t been warned that pudendal neuralgia is a complication of transobturator slings … will unknowingly take their patients down the wrong path of treating Interstitial Cystitis. ”

— Dr. Greg Vigna

SANTA BARBARA, CA, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Combined sacral neuromodulation and bilateral pudendal nerve release surgery has been reported as a successful treatment for a woman diagnosed with bilateral pudendal neuralgia from pudendal nerve entrapment after over 15-years of suffering in New South Wales, Sydney Australia.

The case involved a 35-year old female who had complaints of severe pelvic pain associated with urinary frequency, urgency, nocturia, and exquisite pain at the urethral meatus that began after her first vaginal delivery. She was diagnosed with interstitial cystitis (IC). Later she developed persistent genital arousal disorder and dyspareunia along with shooting pain in the perineum that was exacerbated with sitting and bladder filling. Bowel symptoms included difficulty with evacuation and constipation. Pain limited her ability to manage her activities of daily living (ADLs). Her IC was unsuccessfully treated for years. Ultimately an MRI revealed bilateral narrowing around the pudendal nerve at the sacrospinous and sacrotuberous ligament and she was diagnosed with pudendal neuralgia with pudendal nerve entrapment. She underwent bilateral pudendal nerve decompression and neurostimulator placement with leads at the sacral roots and adjacent to the right and left pudendal nerves. Six months after surgery she had no further pelvic pain except with strenuous physical activity.

Dr. Greg Vigna, MD, JD, national pharmaceutical injury attorney, practicing physician, and Certified Life Care Planner states, “Obviously this is a great outcome. Unfortunately, her pudendal nerve entrapment that should have been diagnosed years earlier as her symptoms were clearly neuropathic in origin and pudendal nerve entrapment must be considered in every patient with the diagnosis of IC. In addition, persistent genital arousal disorder (PGAD) is clearly a red flag for pudendal neuralgia and she had other symptoms that were consistent with pudendal neuralgia as described by the Nantes Criteria.”

Dr. Kenneth Peters is a leading urologist in North America who specializes in neuromodulation and is the medical director of the Beaumont Women’s Urology and Pelvic Health Center in Detroit. He commented on the topic in a journal article, “I, too, believe the pudendal nerve is involved in many of the pain syndromes associated with the interstitial cystitis syndrome. Often in my practice we will perform diagnostic and therapeutic pudendal nerve blocks to help with the pain.”

Dr. Vigna adds, “Pudendal neuralgia from pudendal nerve entrapment in a majority of cases produce the same urological symptoms that are described for IC. Transobturator slings cause secondary nerve entrapment of the pudendal nerve at Alcock’s canal leading to symptoms of IC. Physicians who haven’t been warned that pudendal neuralgia is a complication of transobturator slings, and that it may occur years after implantation, will unknowingly take their patients down the wrong path of treating IC. Not surprising, this results in no improvement, sometimes for years, while at the same time the pudendal nerve is progressively become entrapped as the TOT degrades, contracts, and scars in the obturator internus muscle adjacent to the nerve. These women require complete mesh removal and if symptoms persist following mesh removal, then pudendal nerve decompression with or without neurostimulation. ”

Dr. Vigna concurs with Dr. Peters that any patient with the diagnosis of IC who has symptoms of pudendal nerve entrapment should be evaluated for this underlying neurological condition that can be treated. The symptoms of pudendal neuralgia and pudendal nerve entrapment include the following as describe by the Nantes Criteria:

1) Pain in the territory of the pudendal nerve from the anus to the clitoris
2) Pain is predominantly experience while sitting
3) Pain relieved by a diagnostic pudendal nerve block
4) Burning, shooting, stabbing pain in the perineum
5) Pain in the perineum with wearing tight pants/underwear (allodynia)
6) Foreign body sensation in the rectum or vagina
7) Suprapubic pain, bladder pain, urinary frequency, and urethral pain
8) Dyspareunia (pain with sex) before and after

Dr. Vigna concludes, “We have filed latent pudendal nerve injury cases caused by TOT slings with symptoms of bladder pain, frequency, and urethral pain occurring years after implantation. Most of these women have been diagnosed with IC and were treated unsuccessfully for years only to be diagnosed with pudendal neuralgia and pudendal nerve entrapment as their pain syndrome worsens.”

The Vigna Law Group’s target devices include the transobturator slings and mini-slings that insert into the obturator internus muscle as they cause pudendal neuralgia and symptoms consistent with IC including the following:

Ethicon: TVT-O, Abbrevo
Boston Scientific: Obtryx, Solyx
Coloplast: Aris, Altis

Dr. Vigna is a California and Washington DC lawyer who focuses on catastrophic neurological injuries caused by transvaginal mesh devices including pudendal neuralgia, obturator neuralgia, ilioinguinal neuralgia, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome. He has clients filed around the country with the neurological injuries caused by transvaginal mesh with Martin Baughman, a Dallas Texas firm. Ben Martin and Laura Baughman are national pharmaceutical injury trial attorneys in Dallas, Texas.

Sean Mireskandari, Grand Iranian Attorney, Weighs In On Iranian Government’s Plot To Assassinate U.S. Ambassador

Sean Mireskandari

"It was known at that time the attempts on the lives of U.S. ambassadors would not be limited to one ambassador but to kill several…"- Sean

LOS ANGELES, CA, US, September 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Iranian government is weighing a plot to assassinate the U.S ambassador to South Africa, a report said Sunday. Authorities have been aware of a general threat against Ambassador Lana Marks since the spring, but intelligence reports about the plot have become more specific in recent weeks, Politico reported, citing two unnamed government officials. According to the report, the intelligence community isn’t sure why Iran would target Marks, who does not appear to have any known links to the country.

Prominent Iranian attorney and U.S. citizen who studied law in the U.S. and the United Kingdom, Sean Mireskandari, is not surprised that the terrorist government of the Islamic Republic of Iran wants to assassinate American citizens in retaliation for the killing of the King of Terrorists, Qassem Soleimani.

Sean, who is one of the most highly acclaimed lawyers in England, continues his thoughts by stating, “The Islamic Republic made their intentions known straight after the killing of Soleimani when they announced, through the Supreme Leader, that there will be retaliation against US citizens.” Sean recognizes that as of January 22 of this year, the security forces of the USA were informed that the Supreme Leader himself had ordered the killing of soft targets and personally came up with the idea of killing U.S. ambassadors.

He continues by stating, "It was known at that time the attempts on the lives of U.S. ambassadors would not be limited to one ambassador but to kill several, reasons being that it would make headlines around the world, it would make the Islamic republic look strong and invincible in front of the poor Iranian nation and be a warning to other countries especially the Arab states."

Sean believes that it was no coincidence that the attacks were planned to place at this time as it would have a negative effect on the US elections for President Trump. If the attacks took place, President Trump would have to retaliate which would have an adverse effect on his campaign for re-election.

Part of the President's campaign has been based on his ability over the last four years in not entering wars but preventing them which has brought our troops home. Such an attack would have placed the President in a damned if you do and damned if you don’t position. Sean concludes by praising the U.S. security forces and stating, “Bravo for preventing such attacks on innocent and brave Americans.”

Acclaimed Attorney Scott Levin, Sits Down For One-On-One With Benjamin Heldfond, Co-Author of 'Our Happy Divorce'

Scott F. Levin, Esq San Diego Divorce Mediation

Co- Authors of ‘Our Happy Divorce’, Benjamin Heldfond and Nikki Debartolo

Scott and Benjamin believe that with so many excellent professionals turning towards mediation, there is no reason to hire that shark.

LOS ANGELES, CA, US, September 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — California native attorney, Scott Levin, otherwise known among his clients as the "Chief Peacekeeper", recently sat down to interview Benjamin Heldfond, the co-author of "Our Happy Divorce". In comparison to a litigation attorney, Scott does not represent one spouse but instead enters into a relationship with both spouses with the intention of achieving an amicable arrangement, saving the assets, and ensuring the future of each party. Heldfond who co-authored the book with his ex-wife Nikki recounts their separation and divorce. In this exclusive 20 minute interview, the couple encourages anyone beginning the process of divorce to give the book a read in order to reach an amicable conclusion.

Ben, who lives in Florida, connected with Scott as two people who are widely known in the divorce world but have since become dear personal friends. Scott states, "We speak extensively about how to achieve a successful divorce, one that is amicable, in which both parties admit partial fault for the ending of the marriage, and each shows the other love and compassion by choosing mediation as the process by which to divorce."

Scott and Benjamin believe that with so many excellent professionals turning towards mediation, there is no reason to hire that shark. You need to hire that dolphin, the one who cares for you and your kids and yes even your spouse. "Mediation is the key to a successful divorce and dare I say a happy divorce", states Scott.

When Ben and Nikki went through their separation 13 years ago, they were able to take control of their futures and put their son Asher first by sitting down with each other and figuring out their own divorce settlement.

Over a series of Starbucks meetings, they both admitted partial fault and viewed every aspect of their divorce through a single lens – what is best for their 3-year-old Asher. Now 13 years later, these GOAT co-parents live 7 houses away, dine with each other and their new spouses and kids on a weekly basis, and have shared their amazing story in an incredibly powerful book titled "Our Happy Divorce."

Scott continues by stating, "Unlike Ben and Nikki, you don’t need to invent a new path forward, you just need to follow the algae lighting up the sea to get you home. Yes, that was a reference to Tom Hanks's role in Apollo 13 but it’s true, just follow the path that’s helped tens of thousands of people successfully move forward. And that path includes mediation and the building of a support team."

Ben and Chief Peacekeeper mainly focus their discussion in the following video clip on the incredibly precarious time that couples find themselves in when they first decide to divorce. It’s then that emotions run the highest, that you are both angry and can sometimes want to punish. Scott concludes by stating, "If you allow yourself to give into these emotions, you’ll run off and hire litigators who will promise you the world but in reality will take over the divorce for you and who knows whether they care about you or your kids. They certainly DO NOT care about your eventual ex-spouse."

Former Loomis Employee Files Class and Collective Action to Recover Unpaid Overtime

Loomis accused of denying overtime pay to a former Armed Service Technician in violation of federal law

BALTIMORE, MARYLAND, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — On September 11, 2020, a former employee (“Plaintiff”) of Loomis Armored US, LLC (“Loomis” and/or "Defendant") filed a class and collective action lawsuit against his former employer in the United States District Court for the District of Maryland (Case No.:1:20-cv-02623). Plaintiff alleges that Loomis violated the Fair Labor Standard Act ("FLSA") and seeks to recover unpaid overtime wages.

Loomis provides cash handling and deposit services to a wide range of customers. Plaintiff worked as an Armed Service Technician (“AST”) for Loomis and was paid an hourly wage for his work. Plaintiff and other ASTs were primarily responsible for providing armed courier and delivery support while transporting valuables in Defendant’s vehicles. ASTs either worked as armed drivers, who were responsible for operating the vehicles, or armed messengers, who served as couriers.

Plaintiff alleges that Loomis violated the wage and hour provisions of the FLSA by failing to properly pay him and other ASTs time-and-a-half (1.5) their regular hourly rate when they worked over forty (40) hours a week. According to the Complaint, Plaintiff and other ASTs routinely drove vehicles weighing less than ten thousand (10,000) pounds. Therefore, Plaintiff has alleged that he and other ASTs were not subject to the Motor Carrier Act (“MCA”) exemption to the FLSA and entitled to overtime wages.

Additional information regarding how other ASTs who work or worked for Loomis can join this case can be found here, or by calling the Law Offices of Peter T. Nicholl at 410-244-7005.

New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense Chairman Hashim Nzinga Passes

Chairman Hashim Nzinga

Panther Comrades, Hold the Line.”

— Chairman Hashim Nzinga

ATLANTA, GA, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — With great sadness, we announce the loss of Chairman Hashim Nzinga, the National Chairman of the New Black Panther Party for Self Defense. Brother Hashim Nzinga, our beloved Five-star General, joined the ancestors’ early morning Wednesday, September 9, 2020. Hashim transitioned at his home surrounded by his loving family. Hashim battled Stage 4 colon cancer and was given six months to live. Being the warrior and soldier that he was, Hashim fought to the end and never complained. Hashim Nzinga was born in Midland, Texas on July 24, 1962.

In 1994 Hashim became the Chief of Staff for Minister Khallid Muhammad, the controversial and popular former Nation of Islam Spokesman for the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and later, the New Black Panther Party Chairman until February 17, 2001. Minister Hashim then served as the NBPP National Chief of Staff from 2001 until 2013 under the leadership of NBPP Chairman Malik Zulu Shabazz. During this span Hashim served on the frontlines of many campaigns of justice for Blacks including the 1998 Million Youth March in New York; the 2005 Millions More Movement effort; the 2006 Duke University Lacrosse team alleged rape incident; the 2007 West Virginia Megan Williams rape and torture case. Hashim Nzinga has represented and aided such music stars as Lil’ Boosie and Webbie; Pimp C and Bun B of UGK; Erykah Badu and others.

Since assuming the leadership over the New Black Panther Party, Hashim provided a steady hand of guidance in times of racial unrest in America. The New Black Panther Party, under his leadership, has been in the trenches in the fight against police brutality and efforts to arm Blacks for self-defense across America. From Ferguson, Missouri in 2014, Baltimore in 2015, and everywhere in between up until the George Floyd unrest, the New Black Panthers under his leadership have been deeply involved in this fight.

Minister Hashim Nzinga was a loving father and leaves behind seven beautiful children to carry on his legacy. Hashim is beloved all throughout the Black nation by scores of activists and scholars who were touched by his warm and genuine personality as well as his principled convictions.

Panther Comrades, the Chairman always said, “Hold the Line,” and now more than ever we have to band together and “Hold the Line” and send our beloved Chairman to his final rest with the utmost respect.

Aaron Schlossberg Attorney Discusses the Most Common Kinds of Contract Disputes

Aaron Schlossberg Attorney on the Most Common Kinds of Contract Disputes

NEW YORK , NY, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Unnecessary losses and expenditures shouldn't always be written off as another cost of doing business. Many times, these issues are associated with a contract dispute, and the affected party doesn't need to simply stand idly by while they lose an amount of money, no matter how small or large. Aaron Schlossberg attorney recently discussed the most common kinds of contract disputes among businesses and their customers.

Aaron Schlossberg attorney explained that commercial lease contracts are often a cause of dispute. This is because the owner of the building and the owner of the business renting the space may disagree on a number of issues, such as the raising of rent, the type of business that can be conducted on the property, and more. Aaron Schlossberg explained that this type of contract dispute can be best prevented by both parties meeting with qualified lawyers to fully understand the contract prior to signing.

"Another major contract dispute among businesses and their employees is that of non-compete agreements," Aaron Schlossberg attorney said. "An employee may sign a non-compete agreement, but they may not be fully considering that they may want to leave that employer in the future and find another position at a competing company."

Aaron Schlossberg attorney explained that non-compete agreements often state that, when an employee leaves the employer, he or she can not work for a competitor for a defined number of years. Non-compete agreements can be difficult to understand, as a "competitor" is not a phrase that is always easily defined. This is where many disputes arise.

"Consumer contract disputes are also more common than some everyday consumers think," Aaron Schlossberg attorney said. "Guarantees and warranties can be more convoluted than first expected, and this can result in major disputes, lawsuits, and a generally bad taste in the consumer's mouth."
Many times, a company will sell a product that is not as defined or that injures a consumer. Or, they will fail to honor a warranty. However, they may have these potential hazards or policies defined in fine print. Aaron Schlossberg attorney explained that these disputes are extremely common, as many companies have complicated warranty and refund policies that appear beneficial for consumers, but in actuality, do not cover what is expected.
"Consumer contract disputes are some of the most interesting, because often the consumer is not actually signing a formal contract. They don't know they're abiding by the rules of the company or fine print when they make a purchase," Aaron Schlossberg attorney said.

Aaron Schlossberg attorney finished by stating that whether you're dealing with a consumer contract, non-compete agreement, or commercial lease agreement, it is best to hire a qualified attorney. He explained that contracts and other agreements are often more convoluted than everyday employees, business owners, or consumers think. Aaron Schlossberg attorney has continuously been praised for his ability to solve contract disputes and is one of the most qualified attorneys in New York in this field.

Sonya Songer of Bossy HR to be Featured on Close Up Radio

REDLANDS, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, September 18, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The secret to human resources is the same rule we should all live by: the golden rule. Treat people how you would want to be treated. Unfortunately too many business owners are more concerned with making money, that it doesn’t occur to them to think about the people helping them make that money.

Internal HR departments ensure organizations are following rules. Sonya Songer is the founder of Bossy HR, specializing in human resources consultation for small businesses.

“The stigma for human resources professionals is that they're bossy. They're always telling people what they can and cannot do,” says Sonya. “I just decided to lean into it, because ultimately, while you don't necessarily want to be “bossy,” you need to ensure you're maintaining compliance for your organization, to avoid the pitfalls of legal actions and turnover.

According to Sonya, most small business owners struggle with human resources because they lack knowledge about the law.

While Sonya has spent most of her career specializing in healthcare, including organizations that work with developmentally disabled individuals, she says human resources is human resources and the law is the law and it is applied to every single industry.

“People trying to start their business or who have been running their business never really took the time to think about compliance and performance management,” says Sonya. “This gives me the opportunity to share my knowledge with new business owners and entrepreneurs, bringing that broad understanding of how to put strategies and plans in place so it has a long lasting effect.”

Sonya’s client population are typically small businesses and entrepreneurs that don't necessarily have the resources yet to hire an internal person. Many of these business owners don't think clearly about human resources issues until they get a wake-up call and they suddenly have no choice but to take it seriously.

“Compliance is your obligation, not that of your employee,” says Sonya. “Too often I’m coming in to rectify a situation that could've easily been prevented had they taken human resources seriously from the beginning when they decided that they were going to have employees. Get it right the first time. If you can get it right the first time you don't have to worry about paying expensive legal fees.”

Close Up Radio will feature Sonya Songer in an interview with Jim Masters on September 22nd at 1pm EDT

We are urging the family or friends of a person like this to please share this press release with them and have them call the lawyers at the law firm of Karst von Oiste. As mentioned, the compensation for a person like this might exceed $100,000 and the claim does not involve suing the navy.

Most people like this never get compensated-even though the $30 billion dollar-asbestos trust funds were set up for them too.
