Court: No unemployment for teacher who quit early
Labor & Employment | 2014/06/16 12:27

Washington's Supreme Court says a Spanish teacher who tried to do his school district a favor by quitting early -- instead of in the middle of the school year -- was not entitled to unemployment pay.

Robert Campbell taught in University Place for six years before his wife learned she had won a Fulbright grant to study in Finland in 2011. Campbell asked for a leave of absence so he and the couple's 3-year-old daughter could go along, but the district denied it.

So Campbell had two options: He could quit in June 2010, giving the district time to hire someone else before the next school year, or he could quit in the middle of the school year. He chose the former.

The state denied him unemployment benefits, saying that to be eligible in such circumstances, people must stay in their job as long as reasonably possible before following their spouses. The court unanimously upheld the decision.

Court: No blanket exemption for police dashcams
Legal Spotlight | 2014/06/13 10:24

The state Supreme Court has ruled that state dashboard cameras can't be withheld from public disclosure unless they relate to pending litigation.

Five of the high court's members said Thursday that the Seattle Police Department wrongly used a state statute as a blanket exemption to the state's public records act when it denied providing dashboard camera videos to a reporter with KOMO-TV. Their ruling overturns a 2012 King County Superior Court judge's ruling that said the department could withhold the videos for three years.

The majority awarded KOMO attorney fees and sent the case back to the lower court.

Four justices argued that the statute was clear that that the recordings should not be released to the public until completion of any criminal or civil litigation.


Billionaire pleads guilty to sexual assault charge
Law Center | 2014/06/10 11:07
A Wisconsin billionaire has pleaded guilty to a misdemeanor charge of having sexual contact with a teenage girl.

Fifty-nine-year-old Samuel "Curt" Johnson III of Racine was originally charged with a felony count of child sexual assault. But prosecutors sought to downgrade the charge after they say the victim and her mother refused to cooperate.

Before sentencing Friday, Johnson apologized to the victim and her mother for "the tremendous hurt I have caused."

Judge Eugene Gasiorkiewicz allowed the downgrade of charges. Then he sentenced Johnson to four months in jail, short of the one-year maximum. Johnson was also fined $6,000.

Johnson's family has run home-products giant SC Johnson for five generations. Johnson worked for the company decades ago but has had no formal relationship with the company in years.


DiRusso & DiRusso - Surry County Worker's Compensation Lawyers
Elite Lawyers | 2014/06/10 11:04
Fom the moment an employee is injured, there are time limits for both the employee and employer. Employers must make certain reports to the court system for North Carolina Worker's Compensation case, Industrial Commission. Employer reports do not satisfy the reporting obligations of the employee or extend the time limit for the employee to make his claim.

Under certain circumstances, an injured employee may report their injury to their employer and even be paid for time missed from work. If the employee does not make the proper filing with the Industrial Commssion, the employee's claim can be dismissed and they will receive no further benefits.

It is critical to know what benefits to demand. An injured worker is entitled to numerous benefits, unfortunately it is not the employer's obligation to advise their injured employee of these benefits. At DiRusso & DiRusso, we offer free consultations with attorneys who practice Worker's Compensation.

If you're in need of a Surry County Worker's Compensation Lawyer, contact DiRusso & DiRusso today.


McKennon Law Group - Los Angeles ERISA Litigation Lawyer
Insurance | 2014/06/10 11:02
The Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974, also known as ERISA, governs certain employer-provided health insurance, life insurance, and disability insurance plans. The federal ERISA statute enacted was meant to protect employees by establishing remedies for benefits denials, breaches of fiduciary duties, and failures to provide notice of plan terms or benefit changes. Unfortunately, insurance companies and ERISA insurance plans ofen use the ERISA regulation complexities as a way to improperly deny ERISA claims for ERISA benefits causing individuals to appeal through an administrative process or bring a Federal court lawsuit to recover their ERISA benefits.

Many attorneys are uncomfortable with ERISA cases, and will usually not take these types of cases. Well-funded insurance companies have a clear advantage over sick, disabled, or grieving claimants who do not have experienced ERISA attorneys. Specific rules and strict deadlines govern the ERISA administrative process that individuals must follow before they are allowed to file an ERISA lawsuit. Individuals must comply with the insurance plan's appellate procedures and ERISA law in order to bring an ERISA lawsuit. An attorney specializing in ERISA law can help identify mistakes and weaknesses in the insurer's review and ensure your ERISA administrative record contains appropriate evidence needed to support your claim and navigate the appeals process.

The McKennon Law Group specializes in ERISA insurance and insurance bad faith claims, appeals, and trials. The attorneys at the McKennon Law Group have over forty years of combined experience in litigating ERISA insurance and insurance bad faith cases. Attorneys Robert J. McKennon and Scott E. Calvert have previously represented large insurance companies issuing policies of disability, life, health, and long-term care insurance. Therefore, we can offer a unique perspective and broader understanding of how the insurance industry approaches both ERISA and insurance bad faith claims.

If you're in need of a Los Angeles ERISA Litigation attorney to litigate your ERISA insurance or insurance bad faith claim, please call (949) 387-9595 for a free consultation.

Class action or a representative action is a form of lawsuit in which a large group of people collectively bring a claim to court and/or in which a class of defendants is being sued. This form of collective lawsuit originated in the United States and is still predominantly a U.S. phenomenon, at least the U.S. variant of it. In the United States federal courts, class actions are governed by Federal Rules of Civil Procedure Rule. Since 1938, many states have adopted rules similar to the FRCP. However, some states like California have civil procedure systems which deviate significantly from the federal rules; the California Codes provide for four separate types of class actions. As a result, there are two separate treatises devoted solely to the complex topic of California class actions. Some states, such as Virginia, do not provide for any class actions, while others, such as New York, limit the types of claims that may be brought as class actions.
