Michael Avery, Esq. reviews a recent Virginia Supreme Court decision on a personal injury case involving a deceased party.

The Avery Law Firm (N/A:N/A)

The Virginia Supreme Court navigated the long history of the Dead Man’s statute and the legislative adoption of the rule. However, any changes to such rule are the province of the legislature. ”

— Michael Avery, personal injury attorney in Fairfax, Virginia

FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, March 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a recent case, the Supreme Court of Virginia reviewed the modern criticism of the Dead Man’s statute and the expansive version adopted by the Virginia legislature. Attorney Michael Avery, in a new case comment, summarizes the relevant arguments in an article available on his blog, https://michaelaveryesq.law.blog

Plaintiff Debra Shumate was involved in an automobile accident with William Earl Thompson. The lawsuit was originally against Thompson, but later substituted his estate as the defendant when Thompson passed away due to reasons not related to the accident. Estate agreed that Thompson was at fault and conceded the issue of liability and went to trial over the issue of damages alone.

Shumate described the accident as one with significant collision. “The evidence presented at trial established that Shumate was stopped at a traffic light when she observed a sports car driven by Thompson moving toward the rear of her sedan. She applied the brake in anticipation of the collision and put her arm in front of her son, Joey, who was riding in the passenger seat. Joey described the impact as a ‘hard slam’ and said he saw Shumate go forward and hit her head.” Shumate estimated the speed of the collision at somewhere between 25 to 35 miles per hour.

Thompson’s estate asserted that the collision was a low speed affair. Thompson’s passenger estimated the speed at 5 to 6 miles per hour. Thompson told his son that the speed was 5 to 7 miles per hour, a hearsay statement which was introduced pursuant to Dead Man’s statute.

Evidence also showed that Shumate had three automobile accidents prior to the most recent accident in 2011. “In 1993, a vehicle struck her car at around fifty-five miles per hour, resulting in her losing consciousness and suffering arm, leg, and lower back pain. She was rear-ended in 2001, causing injuries to her neck, knee, and right ankle. And in 2007, she was a passenger in a vehicle that ran off the road causing ‘immediate pain in [her] neck and back.’” Evidence showed that Shumate visited a pain clinic several months prior to the accident and also nine days after the accident on October 27, 2011, but “[n]otably, the physician’s notes from the October 27 appointment contain no reference to the October 18, 2011 collision.”

“Shumate underwent a third spine surgery in March 2012. The surgeon who performed that procedure testified that Shumate reported the same pain level before and after the 2011 collision at issue in this case and that this pain was the reason for the surgery. The surgeon also reported that Shumate had preexisting degenerative changes in her neck and spine not attributable to the 2011 collision.” The estate’s expert also opined that while the emergency room visit was a reasonable precautionary measure, he was of the opinion that the surgery was unrelated to the 2011 accident.

Jury returned a verdict of zero dollars on damages and Shumate moved for set aside the jury verdict. She argued that even the defense expert conceded that at least the emergency room visit made sense. The motion was denied and Shumate eventually appealed and raised two assignments of error: (1) misapplication of the Dead Man’s statute allowing the deceased’s hearsay statements and (2) trial erred in refusing to set aside the jury verdict.

The Virginia Supreme Court navigated the long history of the Dead Man’s statute in Virginia and what led to the 1919 legislative adoption of the rule. The Court also noted the modern criticism of the Dead Man’s statute and the expansive version adopted by the Virginia legislature, but noted that such is the province of the legislature and not the court. Thus, Plaintiff’s argument “that unless [the Court] adopt[s] her interpretation of the statute, ‘the party asserting the Dead Man’s Rule could bring in a plethora of out of court, unreliable hearsay of what the decedent said to others to bolster unfairly the decedent’s case’—is actually an accurate statement of the statute.” But still, the decedent’s description of the accident to his son was properly admitted.

The Court also rejected the second assignment of error. With respect to the argument that at least the emergency room bill was a damage that should have been awarded, the Court explained that “[t]his contention misconstrues Leivy’s [defense expert’s] testimony. This statement did not contradict Leivy’s opinion that Shumate suffered no injury from the collision; instead, it simply acknowledged that it was not irrational for someone with Shumate’s medical history to visit the emergency room after any automobile accident to make sure she was not injured.” Therefore, the judgment of the trial court was affirmed.

The case is Shumate v. Mitchell, Record No. 180012. – The complete article is available on Mr. Avery’s blog at https://michaelaveryesq.law.blog

Women and Youth Unite to Write Letters to President Trump at 3rd Annual Commemoration of Peace Law

Community leaders support the DPCW

D.C. Branch Director of the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG)

Over 300 peace advocates fill Embassy in support of world peace, for the unification of North and South Korea

We’ve sent letters to presidents all over the world. With one heart we should work to make peace, world peace.”

— HWPL Chairman Lee

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, March 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On March 16, a crowd of over 300 engaged women-led peace volunteers, community members, government leaders, and religious leaders gathered at the Embassy of Ethiopia to write President Trump peace letters. The letters urged President Trump to join other world leaders by supporting the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW). The DPCW is an international peace law created in 2014, and its 10 articles and 38 clauses provide a realistic approach to the United States’ role for peaceful unification of North and South Korea.

Heavenly Culture World Peace and Restoration of Light (HWPL), in partnership with the International Women’s Peace Group (IWPG) and the International Peace Youth Group (IPYG), hosted the event in commemoration of the 3rd anniversary of the DPCW. This event attracted citizens from various sectors of society including local and state government officials; religious leaders representing the Christian, Muslim, Sikh, and Buddhist faiths; non-profit peace organizations; and media personnel.

Rachel Choi, the D.C. branch director of IWPG gave an address, stressing the important role women play in enacting the DPCW and urging unification on an international, national and local level. “If we unite together as one, truly anything is possible,” Choi said.

Delegate Ibraheem Samirah (D) in the Virginia House of Delegates 86th District seat, the youngest elected Muslim legislator in the United States, also made remarks. He claimed that in regards to world peace, it "may seem too theoretical but it’s not – not in this world."

"More than ever we need these solutions and it all starts with us [individually]”. He supported the peace work of HWPL stating, “Let’s continue to push for passage of the DPCW. Let’s continue to pursue peace."

Attendees viewed a video of HWPL chairman, Man Hee Lee, give a keynote address from the main March 14 event in Seoul, South Korea. The crowd cheered after hearing him say that “we have to enact [the DPCW] in the United Nations. We need to make this a certain thing. We’ve sent letters to presidents all over the world. With one heart we should work to make peace, world peace.”

Following the speeches, attendees wrote peace letters to President Donald Trump. HWPL hopes the collaborative efforts of the attendees on Saturday will amplify the peace work that is being accomplished across the world.

"It is our duty to awaken and exhort our politicians to enact this international law, in order to achieve peace, and we will not stop working until all wars cease," Choi said.

Informative event about driver’s license restoration & the expungement of criminal records; opportunity to network with community resource organizations.

The Law Office of Attorney Janet Pittman Reed (N/A:N/A)

this is a free event, open to all. The purpose is to empower those individuals who may have lost their driver’s license and need help to get it restored.”

— Janet Pittman Reed, lawyer in North Carolina

JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, March 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Law Office of Attorney Janet Pittman Reed, and the National Association for Black Veterans (NABVETS), ENC Chapter #0069, in conjunction with the Onslow County Bar, are pleased to announced the Event “Empowerment through Expungement” to help those affected by loss of driving privileges or a criminal record, and thus have difficulty finding a job.

The date, time and location of the Event are:

Saturday, March 23, 2019
• 1:00pm – 3:00pm = Panel Discussion about expungement process and driver’s license restoration.
• 3:00pm – 4:15pm = All invited can network with community organizations to work on specific needs.
In Jacksonville, North Carolina Public Safety Building, 200 Marine Boulevard, Jacksonville, North Carolina 28540.

Attorney Janet Reed explains that “this is a free event, open to all. The purpose is to empower those individuals who may have lost their driver’s license and need help to get it restored. This is to empower people so that they understand the expungement process, which may erase a criminal record that is many years old and is preventing someone from advancing economically and socially. Such an outdated record may block someone from getting a job, or a home, or a car, or other life necessities.”

The informative panel discussions with prominent community leaders will explain what affected individuals can do to again obtain a driver’s license, or how to erase criminal records. The community organizations will connect individuals to community resources to obtain food stamps, housing assistance, or education. Representatives from Coastal Community College will be present as a community resource offering information on GED as well as Adult Education opportunities. Other community resources will explain the importance of Alcohol Assessments, Voters Registration, and Alcolock. Canned goods and hygiene bags will be given out. Door prizes will be awarded and lunch will be provided. Also, attorneys will be available for individual consultations about driver’s license restoration and expungement. Lunch is generously being provided by Credo’s Pizza and Honey Baked Ham.

Explanation about “Expunction”

Expunction refers to a process by which a court orders provides that a person’s record of a prior proceeding is deleted from the public record. In North Carolina, there are four broad categories of expunctions in North Carolina: (1) convictions or other matters based on age of the person at the time of the offense or age of the offense; (2) dispositions that do not constitute a conviction, such as dismissals or diversions; (3) drug offense; and (4) specific offenses identified by the General Assembly where defendant’s culpability may be lessened or otherwise warrant relief. Each category is governed by a different statute and may have requirements specific to the category.

“Expunction can be a powerful tool to assist those seeking a fresh start. Individuals interested in expunction should consult with a qualified attorney to navigate the process,” advises Janet Reed.

Richard L. Rosen Law Firm, PLLC to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, March 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — When an entrepreneur has successfully established a thriving business model and brand, one method for expansion is franchising. Franchising offers businesses the opportunity to expand their brand awareness and make more money without having to expend their own capital.

Franchising can be a harrowing experience–the laws that govern franchising are highly complex—but the experience can me made less harrowing with the help of the Richard Rosen Law Firm.

Richard L. Rosen is a franchise law attorney with over 40 years of experience in the field of franchise law.

“I love entrepreneurs, so I like the concept of franchising in general,” says Rosen. “If a franchisee is passionate about what they're doing, I try to help them put it in the best context they can to market in an efficient and fair way.”

Some lawyers represent franchisors; others represent franchisees. Rosen represents both

“For me, it doesn't matter which side I'm on; I represent my client the best I can,” says Rosen. “If I'm representing a franchisee, I'll do the best I can to protect their interest. If I'm representing the franchisor, I'll do everything I can to protect their interest. My approach has always been to try to be fair and reasonable, whatever side I'm on. Having done both and been on both sides has been very helpful for me because I understand where the other side is coming from and I don't just take a one-sided view. I try to meet the needs of both parties.”

A franchisee's role is to duplicate the franchisor's successful business model. Franchisees purchase the right to use an existing business's trademarks, branding and proprietary knowledge. In addition to an annual fee, franchisees also pay a portion of their profits to the franchisor.

Franchisees don’t enjoy the same freedom of traditional entrepreneurs (if you own a McDonalds franchise, you can’t just decide to serve pizza), but franchisees sacrifice this creative license in exchange for a recognized trademark, a proven business model, established business systems, training and support. Their likelihood for success as a business owner is much higher than if they were to build something from the ground up.

“What the franchisee is saying is, ‘I want to be in business, but I don't know enough about how to do it, so I want to tie myself to somebody that will teach me how to do it. No one in the community knows who I am, but if I put ‘Chipotle’ on my sign, I instantly have customers.”

Of course, this is a double-edged sword: negative press for the brand affects you as a franchisee at the community level, and franchisees have very little control over how to manage it.

“I always say to franchisees, ‘How do you feel about doing this on a regular basis for the next 20 years?’ If it's not something you really love, then you're making the wrong decision. Try to pick something you're passionate about you want to do on a day-to-day basis, not just something you think you can make a lot of money doing.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Richard Rosen in an interview with Jim Masters on March 19th at 4pm EST and with Doug Llewelyn on March 26th at 4pm EST.

Mexican client had traffic violations on his record, as well as non-compliance with orders related to prior domestic violence, in removal after a bond violation

Cuprys and Associates (N/A:N/A)

A.H. suffered greatly while being detained, which kept him away from his children. Since immigration relief is available to him based on a prior immigration petition, I am grateful for his release”

— Magdalena Cuprys, Immigration Lawyer in Florida

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, March 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The law firm of Cuprys and Associates announced that immigration attorney Magdalena Cuprys succeeded in obtaining bond for a Mexican client with minor criminal offenses on the record that should not result in deportation. This is a notable achievement since the client had a prior bond violation on the record.

A.H., originally from Mexico, has resided in the U.S. since 1995, is married, and has four children born in the U.S. His father, a U.S. permanent resident, had previously filed an immigrant petition for him, making him eligible for immigration relief under 245(i) [for those for whom immigrant petitions or labor certifications were filed by April 1, 2001].* He was arrested after a prior bond violation and detained at Krome Detention Center in Florida.

First, attorney Magdalena Cuprys filed a Motion for Bond with the Immigration Court in Miami, Florida. Second, Ms. Cuprys filed for Cancellation of Removal and Adjustment of Status, providing the court with proof that deporting A.H. would result in extreme and unusual hardship to his four U.S. born children. Immigration lawyer Magdalena Cuprys thereafter succeeded with the Bond motion, and A.H. was released from detention.

Ms. Cuprys stated that “A.H. suffered greatly while being detained, which kept him away from his children. He has lived in the U.S. for almost 25 years, and has several close family members living here. Since immigration relief is available to him based on a prior immigration petition, we are very grateful for his release.”

The underlying case is “In the Matter of: H.-G., A.,” Case Number A205-344 …, Immigration Court, Miami, Florida.

* Section 245(i) allows certain persons, who have an immigrant visa immediately available but entered without inspection or otherwise violated their status and thus are ineligible to apply for adjustment of status in the United States, to apply if they pay a $1,000 penalty. The LIFE Act temporarily extends the ability to preserve eligibility for this provision of law until April 30, 2001. Use of Section 245(i) adjustment of status previously was limited to eligible individuals who were the beneficiary of a visa petition or labor certification application filed on or before January 14, 1998. See https://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files/files/pressrelease/Section245ProvisionLIFEAct_032301.pdf

GRAFTON, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, March 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — West Bend Mutual Insurance Co. v. Ixthus Medical Supply, Inc. is a case centered on the scope of commercial general liability coverage. Richard A. Kranitz, in a newly published comment, reviews this case. The full comment will be published on his Blog at https://richardkranitzblog.blogspot.com/

Ixthus, a Wisconsin medical supply company had a commercial general liability insurance with West Bend. The policy included coverage for “personal and advertising injury”. The policy, however, excluded knowing violations of rights of another and criminal acts.

“Abbott is a health care company that manufactures and sells blood glucose test strips in both the domestic and international markets . . . . For a variety of reasons, Abbott sells test strips for use in international markets at a much lower cost.“ “In November 2015, Abbott filed a lawsuit in New York federal court against Ixthus and over 100 other defendants asserting thirteen federal statutory and common law claims for relief based on its belief that the defendants were ‘import[ing], advertis[ing] and subsequent[ly] distribut[ing]’ boxes of Abbott's international test strips in the United States.”

Ixthus notified West Bend of the lawsuit and West Bend subsequently denied Ixthus’s claim for benefit under the policy. Trial court sided with West Bend, ruling that although the lawsuit by Abbott would ordinarily fall under West Bend’s policy, the knowing violation exclusion applied and thus West Bend had no duty to defend. The court of appeals, however, disagreed. “The court of appeals concluded the knowing violation exclusion did not apply because several of the claims alleged in the complaint could be established without having to prove Ixthus's actions were intentional; therefore, the court of appeals held that the complaint asserted potentially covered claims not consumed by the knowing violation exclusion.”

The Supreme Court started its inquiry by examining the policy itself. In doing so, the Court noted that “a court must liberally construe the allegations contained in the underlying complaint, assume all reasonable inferences from the allegations made in the complaint, and resolve any ambiguity in the policy terms in favor of the insured.” Because “[t]he purpose of the analysis is to determine whether the allegations in the complaint contain any claims, which if proven true, would be covered by the policy.” Thus, “[t]he duty to defend is ‘necessarily broader than the duty to indemnify because the duty to defend is triggered by arguable, as opposed to actual, coverage.’” The Court went on to explain that “[e]xclusions are narrowly or strictly construed against the insurer if their effect is uncertain.” Importantly, “[i]f the policy, considered in its entirety, provides coverage for at least one of the claims in the underlying suit, the insurer has a duty to defend its insured on all the claims alleged in the entire suit.”

The Supreme Court agreed with the court of appeals. “The knowing violation exclusion will preclude coverage at the duty-to-defend stage only when every claim alleged in the complaint requires the plaintiff to prove the insured acted with knowledge that its actions would violate the rights of another and would inflict 'personal and advertising injury. If the complaint alleges any claims that can be proven without such a showing, the insurer will be required to provide a defense.” (Internal quotation mark omitted). The Court then concluded that Abbott’s complaint against Ixthus contains several claims that has no dependence on knowing violation or constitute criminal acts. Therefore, the Court held that West Bend has a duty to defend Ixthus in the pending litigation.

The case is West Bend Mutual Insurance Co. v. Ixthus Medical Supply, Inc., 2019 WI 19.

New York Attorney Michael Greenspan Urges Car Accident Victims to Beware of “Runners”

Greenspan said that various bar associations and law enforcement groups are trying to put a stop to this, but that it will remain an ongoing problem.

The kind of people who would contact you would not be the type you want protecting your rights and your interests”

— Attorney Michael Greenspan

WHITE PLAINS, NY, USA, March 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — New York Attorney Michael Greenspan offered crucial tips for recent victims of car accidents in a recent video.

The interview took place with AskTheLawyers.com™. Greenspan covered many important topics, including the concept of “runners” and why car accident victims should be extra wary of them. He said that runners will contact a recent victim of a car crash and promise to help them find legal help, a doctor, and transportation to clinics for treatment, all for free.

Greenspan said that various bar associations and law enforcement groups are trying to put a stop to this, but that it will remain an ongoing problem. He said that if someone does contact you after a crash offering this kind of help, don’t trust them.

“The kind of people who would contact you would not be the type you want protecting your rights and your interests,” he said.

He explained that these runners found out about your crash illegally, possibly through a first responder or a hospital employee who sold your information. He said that an actual attorney would never contact you first as that would be against the law.

“We as lawyers are not allowed to contact someone who we know has been involved in a car crash,” he said. “We have no established pre-existing relationship.”

Greenspan pointed out that the New York Rules of Professional Conduct forbid attorneys from making an unsolicited communication with an injured person with 30 days of the incident:

"No unsolicited communication shall be made to an individual injured in the incident or to a family member or legal representative of such an individual, by a lawyer or law firm, or by any associate, agent, employee or other representative of a lawyer or law firm representing actual or potential defendants or entities that may defend and/or indemnify said defendants, before the 30th day after the date of the incident, unless a filing must be made within 30 days of the incident as a legal prerequisite to the particular claim, in which case no unsolicited communication shall be made before the 15th day after the date of the incident." NY ST RPC Rule 4.5

Greenspan also went into detail about insurance coverage, explaining that drivers must have the minimum liability of $25,000 per person and $50,000 per collision. He recommended getting the most insurance coverage possible. The bare minimum may be insufficient if you’re in an accident that costs more than the minimums can handle.

Michael Greenspan is an attorney with Greenspan & Greenspan, and he has been practicing law since 1992. He focuses 90 percent of his practice on litigation. He has received the County of Rockland Distinguished Service Award, the American Association for Justice Commendation, and the New York State Trial Lawyers Association Certification of Appreciation for Extraordinary Service.

HWPL Writes Peace Letters to National Leaders

30,000 people in agreement with Chairman Lee’s declaration of peace.

30,000 people including government officials, religious leaders, heads of NGOs, and media gathered in Seoul, South Korea, to establish international peace law.

WASHINGTON DC, UNITED STATES, March 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — On March 14th, about 30,000 people from all sectors of the society including government officials, religious leaders, heads of NGOs, press and media, and citizens gathered in Seoul, South Korea, to redouble efforts for the establishment of international law for peace.

Achieving the 3rd anniversary this year, the annual commemoration of the Declaration of Peace and Cessation of War (DPCW) was hosted by an international peace NGO, Heavenly Culture, World Peace, Restoration of Light (HWPL), to share the progress of activities undertaken to introduce the DPCW to the UN as a resolution.

The DPCW drafted by international law experts includes principles of peacebuilding such as the prohibition of the use of force, development of friendly relations, and peaceful dispute settlement. The DPCW emphasizes international cooperation based on interfaith dialogue and civic participation to create and spread a culture of peace.

Mr. Pravin Harjivandas Parekh, President of Confederation of Indian Bar, said “HWPL’s strength comes from uniting all sectors of civil society with this work of peace. The DPCW connects considerably with civil society contributors since peace cannot be continued merely through the voices of the elite. It suggests civil societies function as peace-building activists which encourage citizens’ advocacy that brings forth a culture of peace.”

Ms. Anna Cervenakova, a member of Human Rights Research Center, explained that a culture of peace necessitates a certain system of values that includes respect for human life, ending war, armed conflicts or violence and taking action in promoting peace, human rights, sustainable development, and environmental needs for present and future generations.

According to the progress report announced at the event, the DPCW has been adopted as national legislation by Seychelles, eSwatini, and Comoros. Regional organizations such as PARLACEN (Central American Parliament), PAP (Pan-African Parliament), and International Centre for Black Sea-Baltic Studies and Consensus Practices (Centre for BBS) have cooperated with HWPL in support for the enactment of the DPCW by signing MOUs.

This year’s commemoration highlighted the “Peace Letters” to the heads of states and UN ambassadors in 193 countries. Written by global citizens, the “Peace Letter Campaign” as an effort towards establishing a legally-binding framework for an international law of peace.

“Since 2018, IPYG has collected over 200,000 peace letters and sent them to the heads of state of the following: South Africa, Indonesia, New Zealand, Namibia, Malaysia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and South Korea.

“Starting from today, we have great expectations for its future. The first goal is to submit the DPCW to the UN General Assembly in the form of a draft resolution and have it adopted. The second is to create a new peninsula to achieve peaceful unification. Let us become all heroes of peace together,” said Mr. Young Min Chung of general director of IPYG.

Chairman Man Hee Lee of HWPL said, “Korea has undergone much sorrow from the division, which still threatens our daily lives. When I was 20 years old, I had no choice but to join the tragic war. We need to listen to what the soldiers said. They blamed their countries. Do the countries compensate for the loss of life? There should be no longer victims of war in our globe. Should we stand still and do nothing in this reality?”

“The unification of Germany was triggered by citizens, not by force or politics. Some might say that the military confrontation serves as a major challenge to peace and unification. Use of force must be dissuaded to achieve peace, which is also designated in the DPCW. It has principles to secure peace in our times. When we advocate peace to our national leaders, they can be peace advocates; however, if they do not listen to their people, they will be offenders against peace,” he added.

The host organization, HWPL, is a peace NGO in Special Consultative Status with the UN ECOSOC and associated with the Seoul Metropolitan Government and the UN DGC. For the purpose of ceasing all wars and creating a peaceful world as a legacy for future generations, HWPL has been carrying out 3 main peace initiatives – international law for peace, inter-faith dialogue meeting, and peace education.
