Lawyer-to-lawyer communications are not subject to the advertising rules

first_img Lawyer-to-lawyer communications are not subject to the advertising rules Lawyer-to-lawyer communications are not subject to the advertising rules Lawyers can send advertisements to other lawyers, but they may not pass along to current or former clients advertising from other lawyers, according to the Florida Supreme Court.The court on July 8 approved amendments to Bar Rule 4-7.1, which deals with exemptions to Bar advertising rules.The court had initially considered changes in a rewrite of the advertising rules submitted to the court in 2007. It asked for more information on the provisions of Rule 4-7-1, which recommended that advertising rules would not apply to lawyer-to-lawyer communications, communications with current or former clients, and communications with family members.The court, in its initial opinion on the rewritten rules, accepted the exemption on communications with family members, but asked for more information on communications with other lawyers and with current or former clients. The Bar provided that information, and the court heard oral argument earlier this year, after receiving three comments.In its opinion, the court accepted the Bar proposal that communications with other lawyers are exempt from the advertising rules. It largely accepted the Bar’s proposal that communications with current and former clients also be exempted. The court, though, specified that lawyers cannot pass along to those current or former clients advertisements from other attorneys.The court also added to the comment of the rule, including the admonition that, “A lawyer shall not serve as a conduit for other attorneys’ advertising.”The court also wrote in its unanimous per curiam opinion that, while those communications may be exempt from advertising rules, other Bar rules still apply.“[W]e emphasize that all communications by lawyers remain subject to the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar. For example, lawyers remain subject to the conflict of interest rules that prevent lawyers from placing their interests above those of their clients. R. Regulating Fla. Bar 4-1.7(a)(2),” the court said. “Also, lawyers are prohibited from engaging in conduct involving ‘dishonesty, fraud, deceit, or misrepresentation,’ regardless of the application of lawyer advertising rules. R. Regulating Fla. Bar 4-8.4(c). In addition, existing rule 4-7.1 contains a subdivision titled ‘Application of General Misconduct Rule,’ which reiterates that lawyers are prohibited from engaging in conduct involving ‘dishonesty, deceit, or misrepresentation,’ in any form of communication, regardless of whether the communication is governed by the advertising rules. R. Regulating Fla. Bar 4-7.1(g). Therefore, even though the instant proposals exempt two types of communication from the advertising rules, Rule 4-7.1 continues to require all communications to comply with the rules requiring honesty and candor.”The court also reiterated its wish for the Bar to undertake a larger study that encompasses both lawyer advertising and marketing — a process the Bar has begun.The new advertising rules become effective October 1.The court acted in In Re: Amendment to Rule Regulating The Florida Bar 4-7.1 – Lawyer-to-Lawyer and Lawyer-to-Client Communications, case no.

Home Affairs aiming to curb permit and document backlogs

first_imgSouth Africa’s Department of Home Affairs has given an assurance that applications for study, work, business, temporary and permanent residence permits will soon be completed.(Image: Pixabay)Brand South African reporterBriefing reporters on the department’s permitting regime in Pretoria this week, department Director-General Mkuseli Apleni said that as of November last year, the backlog on all permit applications, excluding applications by Zimbabweans, was approximately 38 039.Since then, the said that the backlog had been reduced by 24 323 applications, with outstanding permit applications currently receiving attention being 13 667.“The department has increased its capacity to deal with all permit applications, created as a consequence of the centralisation process has enabled the department to attend to 1 600 permit applications per day,” Apleni said.He said that with the department now being able to attend to 8 000 applications per week, the backlog should be substantially reduced or even eradicated by the end of March.“The reduction of the backlog on permit applications must be seen within the context of the overall commitment of the department to deliver quality service to the people as part of the fulfilment of its constitutional mandate,” he said.Leading normal livesApleni said that as the department, they will do everything in their power to ensure that all permit applications are attended to expeditiously to enable applicants to lead normal lives without the constant fear of arrest and deportation.“We recognise that most of these applicants contribute meaningfully to the growth and development of our economy and country. We have to do everything to ensure that such skills are retained in the country,” he said.First-time applicants for temporary residents will now get their permits after four weeks, while those applying for permanent resident will have to wait for six months or before as a result of the new measures.Centralised permit applicationsApleni said through centralisation, the department has assumed full control and accountability over all permit applications that are submitted at all regional offices across the country.The department has also implemented a filing system where all permits are held according to provinces, offices, category and date of application.The centralisation has contributed to the security of all permits since the department knows to whom permits are being issued and for what reason.Through the centralisation process, permit renewals of all categories are issued within 48 hours. The centralisation system has also enabled permits to go electronic.In this regard, the issuance of permits is now fully integrated with the Movement Control System which facilitates the entry into South Africa of visitors into the country.Permits for ZimbabweansAccording to Apleni, the total number of applications for Zimbabweans they have adjudicated stands at approximately 66 000 out of 275 762.“We have announced that the remaining applications will be adjudicated by 30 June 2011. This will include the adjudication and dispatch to regional offices of issued permits.“We have committed ourselves to concluding the documentation of Zimbabweans project by 30 June 2011,” he said.He further said Zimbabweans are still allowed to apply for permits: “The permitting regime in South Africa has not closed. We only closed the process for Zimbabweans nationals to apply for study, work and business permits on the relaxed conditions.“Any Zimbabweans nationals coming in can still apply for study, work and business permits although they will be subjected to and must comply with the normal requirements. It is only the special dispensation for Zimbabweans nationals that has closed,” he said.Source: South African Government News Agency, Department of Home AffairsWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Only 1 person remains missing from dive boat fire

first_img(AP) — Only one person remained missing Wednesday after searchers recovered 33 bodies from the charred underwater wreckage of a dive boat that caught fire off the Southern California coast and sank on Labor Day.Among the victims were an engineer for Apple who went on the trip with his wife and daughter to celebrate the teen’s 17th birthday, a special effects designer for Disney, a nature photographer, a nurse and a physics teacher from Northern California who was with his 26-year-old daughter.Five crew members, including the captain, managed to escape the Conception after Monday’s pre-dawn fire that engulfed the boat as the victims slept below decks near the island of Santa Cruz during a three-day scuba diving excursion. The vessel eventually sank and overturned, making the recovery of bodies challenging.The only crewmember to die was 26-year-old Allie Kurtz, who quit her corporate job at Paramount Pictures to work on dive boats and had recently been promoted to deckhand on the Conception.She was sleeping with the other divers below deck when flames moved quickly through the 75-foot (23-meter) vessel, blocking a narrow stairway and an escape hatch leading to the upper decks.DNA will be needed to identify the victims. Authorities will use the same rapid analysis tool that identified victims of the deadly wildfire that devastated the Northern California town of Paradise last year, Santa Barbara County Sheriff Bill Brown said.Apple engineer Steve Salika and his wife, Diana Adamic, went on the trip with their daughter Tia Salika to celebrate the teen’s 17th birthday, company senior vice president Deirdre O’Brien told The Mercury News newspaper. Apple colleague, Dan Garcia joined them.Tia was a student at Pacific Collegiate Charter School, a high-performing school serving grades seven to 12 in Santa Cruz. Also with her was a fellow student Berenice Felipe, according to a letter sent to the school community obtained by NBC News.O’Brien said in a statement that Salika’s “energy and enthusiasm touched so many people across our company ” during his 30-year career there, and that Garcia “was as passionate about his job at Apple as he was about his love of diving. Both leave many friends behind and will be deeply missed.”Adamic volunteered at the Santa Cruz County Animal Shelter, as did Tia and Berenice, Jen Walker, a former humane educator at the animal shelter, told the Los Angeles Times in a statement.Adamic “was an ally to all living things — orphan kittens, wild birds, youth volunteers — and a champion for the natural world around us,” Walker said.Another diver aboard was visual effects designer Charles McIlvain, who was known for his work on films such as “Spider-Man” and “Green Lantern.”His wife, Jasmine Lord, said in a family statement that he was with their close friend Marybeth Guiney, who was also the couple’s neighbor in Santa Monica.Both lived their lives to the fullest, according to the statement.“His laugh was the greatest and his smile could light up the dark,” the family said in a statement. “He embraced life with exceptional joy, openness and humor, and all who knew him felt that warmth.”McIlvain worked as a visual effects designer for Walt Disney Imagineering and a pipeline engineer and technical animation supervisor at Sony Pictures Imageworks. He also worked for Netflix.Another passenger was Lisa Fiedler, a 52-year-old hairdresser and photographer from the community of Mill Valley north of San Francisco, her mother, Nancy Fiedler, told San Francisco’s ABC affiliate, KGO television.“Everybody loved her,” her mother said.Susana Rosas of Stockton, California, posted that her three daughters — Evan, Nicole and Angela Quitasol — were with their father, Michael Quitasol, and stepmother, Fernisa Sison. Evan Quitasol was a nurse in Stockton, where her father and Sison had worked, and her sister Angela was a Stockton science middle school teacher while Nicole worked at a restaurant in Coronado, near San Diego.“Everybody’s devastated,” said Dominic Selga, Sison’s ex-husband.The fire started shortly after 3 a.m. Monday as the boat sat anchored in Platt’s Harbor off Santa Cruz Island, among the rugged, wind-swept isles that form Channel Islands National Park.Those aboard included students from Pacific Collegiate School in Santa Cruz, a public charter school for grades 7 through 12, the school said.Scott Chan, a physics teacher at American High School in Fremont, was there too with his 26-year-old daughter, said Brian Killgore, a spokesman for the Fremont Unified School District.“His students knew him to be an innovative and inspiring teacher who developed a passion for physics among his students,” the district said in a statement.Other divers who died were an Arizona couple, Patricia Beitzinger and Neal Baltz, according to ABC affiliate KNXV-TV in Phoenix. “They went to heaven doing something they loved together,” Neal’s father, John Baltz, told the television station.Baltz was an engineer for a Phoenix semiconductor company whose hobby was winemaking and he enrolled in an enology program at a community college in the Verde Valley wine region, working in vineyards and cellars, the Los Angeles Times reported.After finishing the program, he endowed a scholarship for the school.“He’s one of those people who was an absolute pleasure to know,” Michael Pierce, director of enology and viticulture at the Southwest Wine Center, told the paper. “He went through life with joy.”Baltz and his longtime girlfriend lived in the Ahwatukee Foothills in southern Phoenix. They had dived in the Caribbean and elsewhere.“He loved so many things,” Pierce said. “He loved the ocean, he loved his dogs, he loved Patricia. We are a small community. It’s a huge loss for us.”Kristy Finstad, a marine biologist and co-owner of Worldwide Diving Adventures in Santa Cruz, was leading the scuba tour and had done hundreds of dives in the Channel Islands, according to her company’s website.Coast Guard records show the boat’s owners quickly addressed all safety violations over the last five years.The National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the cause of the fire. Jennifer Homendy of the National Transportation Safety Board said she met with families for two hours Wednesday.She said the probe’s findings are expected in 12 to 18 months. Four of five crew members tested negative for alcohol. The other crew member was injured and on the way to the hospital and could not be tested, Homendy said. Authorities are awaiting the results of drug tests.last_img read more

National Youth Day Message

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp PDM Leader sends Women’s Day Greeting Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 25 Sept 2015 – Having celebrated the first National Youth Day in these Islands in 1995, this 20th year is therefore a commemorative one for the PDM who first introduced it under the Taylor Administration and directly under the leadership of the Hon Clarence Selver. National Youth Day when introduced was held to be a day of celebration – celebration of our youth. We therefore on this 20th year considered this a major milestone worthy of great celebration.We are grateful to and celebrate the many persons that served in the capacity as Minister with responsibility for youth, Youth Directors and also former members of the National Youth Council then in place. We then pause to celebrate the youth who allowed their lives to be positively impacted through the Department over the years and who we celebrate for their efforts in paying it forward.This week our Radio Show “Raising TCI” returns and we pause to celebrate our youth. With a youth theme and in honor of our youth worthy of celebration, we will sit and hear from youths who have a vision and who have already begun to impact and change their corner of these Islands. We will hear from them the challenges and what they feel can be done. We will also celebrate with the Miss Teen Organization as it seeks to offer young ladies a platform to show case their inner and outer beauty.We recognize that it is difficult to be a youth in today’s TCI with the myriad of challenges ranging from lack of activities that reach them where they are at especially our unattached youth; unemployment; under employment; depression; poverty; the growing inability to find their place or worth in their own country and the response to migrate to other countries in search of better opportunities; lack of adult guidance; crimes; juvenile delinquency and improper facilities and programs to help; drugs and alcohol; imprisonment and society’s too often approach to allow a successful reentry; teenage sex and pregnancy; prostitution; bullying and gang violence; and being saddled with a future where they cannot seem to be able to find or see their place. It is not easy and I encourage us all from where we are to reach out as individuals and collectively in organized bodies to respond to these real challenges tangible and meaningful ways.Nonetheless in the midst of it all, many of our youth continue to rise above the challenges and give us reason to celebrate be it in the area of academia, sports, creative arts, business and civic roles and responsibility. We salute you and will continue to support your efforts and celebrate your successes.We charge you, our our youth to seek out the programs and activities that will support your positive development and to also understand that in every generation there will be calls to make decisions and sacrifices for the good of our country. It is never ever about personal wealth and self -aggrandizement. It is always about leaving this world better than we met it. It is in your power to remove the stigma that too many have of you as youth. I challenge to search within, see if you are living out your fullest potential or existing. You must rise up and make your positive mark. You are required to contribute positively towards nation building. That is your duty and more so as you are the inheritors of what you build or destroy today.Equally, we renew our pledge to help our troubled and challenged youth. We believe firmly that the raising of a child will always be the responsibility of an entire village. My mind goes back to the act of infant dedication and the practice to invite individuals of the Church to stand if he/she was committed to assisting the parents with the rearing of the child. I am asking us in an act of rededication to the building of our country, to stand in support of our youth and assist parents in raising our future leaders. And also to stand committed to doing what we can to give them the opportunities so that they can realize their fullest potential. Love of God and country must motivate us. We must help even when it is not welcomed. It may sound foolish but this is a must. Many homes need our help not our destructive criticism. The village encompassing the Church, the School, the lawmakers, custodians of the public purse, civic organizations and individuals must come alive as we seek to rear the next generation of leaders and citizens.We celebrate our youth this week. We believe that our brightest minds are ahead and that our future is bright if we act now.We say Happy 20th National Youth Day TCI. May God bless guide and protect our youth and our homes.
