As a result of that those individuals are ineligible for veterans’ benefits. While military discharge decisions can only be formally changed by the federal government, the Restoration of Honor Act allows these veterans to apply to claim their New York State benefits.This makes New York the first state in the nation to restore the benefits of veterans who received less than honorable discharges either because of these traumas or because of their LGBTQ identity.

November 1, 2004 Notices NoticesCourt amends jury instructions The Florida Supreme Court approved amendments to civil jury instruction 1.3, regarding when a judge reads stipulated testimony, stipulations, or admissions to a jury. The changes were proposed by the court’s Committee on Standard Jury Instructions in Civil Cases (in supplemental report No. 04-01), were advertised in the Bar News, but received no comments. In its October 14 order in case no. SC04-580, the court wrote in its per curiam opinion: “Upon consideration of the committee’s report, we hereby authorize the publication and use of the revised instruction as set forth in the appendix attached to this opinion. In doing so, we express no opinion on the correctness of the instruction and remind all interested parties that this authorization forecloses neither requesting additional or alternative instructions nor contesting the legal correctness of this instruction. “We further caution all interested parties that the notes and comments associated with the instruction reflect only the opinion of the committee, and are not necessarily indicative of the view of this court as to their correctness or applicability.”Court rejects new traffic rule The Florida Supreme Court declined to adopt a newly proposed traffic court rule 6.292 that would clarify the effect of a withheld adjudication in the criminal offense context. The court declined the proposed rule from The Florida Bar Traffic Court Rules Committee, because it is in conflict with the court’s decision in Raulerson v. State, 763 So. 2d 285 (Fla. 2000). The court did adopt the remaining amendments in case no. SC04-101 that make minor technical changes to rules 6.100 (Traffic Violations Bureau), 6.190 (Procedure on Failure to Appear; Warrant; Notice), 6.200 (Pleas and Affidavits of Defense); 6.500 (Pronouncement and Entry of Penalty; Penalizing Official); and 6.580 (Completion of Driver School; Conditions.) The rules committee’s proposals were unanimously approved by the Bar’s Board of Governors and were published for comment in the Bar News. The one comment received alleges that the entire body of Traffic Court Rules do not comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. “As this comment is beyond the scope of the current proposed amendments, we direct the Clerk of Court to refer this comment to the rules committee for its consideration, pursuant to Florida Rule of Judicial Administration 2.130(b)(2),” the per curiam October 7 opinion said. < p>Bankruptcy judge needed in Tampa The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 11th Circuit seeks applications from all highly qualified persons for a 14-year appointment as U.S. bankruptcy judge for the Middle District of Florida at Tampa.

Proposed ethics advisory opinion The Professional Ethics Committee has issued Proposed Advisory Opinion 00-2 (Reconsideration) reprinted below. Pursuant to Rule 4(c) and (d) of The Florida Bar Procedures for Ruling on Questions of Ethics, comments from Florida Bar members are solicited on the proposed opinion. The committee will consider any comments received at a meeting to be held at 2 p.m. on Friday, January 21, 2005 at the Hyatt Regency in Miami. Comments must contain the proposed advisory opinion number and clearly state the issues for the committee to consider. A written argument may be included explaining why the Florida Bar member believes the committee’s opinion is either correct or incorrect and may contain citations to relevant authorities. Comments should be submitted to Elizabeth Clark Tarbert, Ethics Counsel, The Florida Bar, 651 E. Jefferson Street, Tallahassee 32399-2300, and must be postmarked no later than 30 days from the date of this publication. PROFESSIONAL ETHICS OF THE FLORIDA BAR PROPOSED ADVISORY OPINION 00-2 (Reconsideration) (October 1, 2004) The Committee has reconsidered Opinion 00-2 which discourages lawyers from being involved in settlement agreements in which an insurance company places funds directly into an account in a client’s name instead of sending the lawyer a check which is then deposited into the lawyer’s trust account. Opinion 00-2 concludes that this type of arrangement, sometimes known as a “Safe Haven Account” or “FUNDaccount,” prevents a lawyer from fulfilling his or her ethical obligations to third parties. See Rule 5-1.1 and Rule 5-1.2, Comment, Rules Regulating The Florida Bar. Additionally, the Committee was concerned about “reducing available funds that otherwise would be used to assist in the administration of justice through participation in the Supreme Court approved IOTA program.” The Committee is concerned that Opinion 00-2 might be interpreted as mandating limitations on the client’s ability to direct payments of the client’s share of settlement funds into specific financial accounts or to designated third party recipients without having those funds placed first in a lawyer’s trust account. The client has wide discretion in directing the manner in which the monies owed to the client are distributed provided, however, that the client may not direct payment of funds in a manner intended to avoid the client’s legal obligation to pay the client’s lawyers or to pay debts owed to third parties. The Committee believes that the concerns expressed in Opinion 00-2 can be avoided in a settlement where the only funds going directly from the insurance company into a client’s financial account or to another recipient designated by the client are monies owed to the client and the insurance company issues a separate check to the attorney for the remaining balance, including attorney’s fees, any applicable costs, and amounts owed to third parties. The attorney would then deposit these funds into his or her attorney trust account and distribute the funds in accordance with the attorney’s ethical obligations. This agreement gives a lawyer control over that portion of settlement proceeds covering fees, costs, and amounts to which third parties may have valid legal claims. This permits the lawyer to fulfill his or her ethical duties under Rule 5-1.1 and Rule 5-1.2, Comment, Rules Regulating The Florida Bar. It also allows for the collection of interest on these funds, through placement in an IOTA account when required by Rule 5-1.1(e). In conclusion, a lawyer may participate in an arrangement where an insurance company pays only that portion of the settlement proceeds owed directly to the client into a client’s financial account or to another recipient designated by the client. As stated in Opinion 00-2, however, a lawyer should not participate in a settlement if the funds deposited into the client’s account include the attorney’s fees, costs and funds to which a third party may have a claim. Bar rules proposals to be filed The Board of Governors of The Florida Bar published a notice in the October 15 News of filing with the Supreme Court of Florida, on or about November 15, a petition to amend the Rules Regulating The Florida Bar. The amendments reflect changes favorably recommended by the Board of Governors of The Florida Bar after reviewing changes made to the ABA Model Rules in 2002 at the recommendation of the ABA Ethics Commission 2000. The following two items were inadvertently omitted from that notice: RULE 4-1.8 CONFLICT OF INTEREST; PROHIBITED AND OTHER TRANSACTIONS *** (k) While lawyers are associated in a firm, a prohibition in the foregoing subdivisions (a) through (i) that applies to any one of them shall apply to all of them. *** RULE 5-1.1 TRUST ACCOUNTS *** Comment *** The obligations of a lawyer under this chapter are independent of those arising from activity other than rendering legal services. For example, a lawyer who serves only as an escrow agent is governed by the applicable law relating to fiduciaries even though the lawyer does not render legal services in the transaction and is not governed by this rule. *** Additionally, a few minor editorial corrections not affecting the substance of the rules were made after publication of the October 15, 2004 notice. An errata sheet and the full corrected text of the entire rules changes in legislative format can be found on The Florida Bar website at www.flabar.org under Organization, Committees, Special, Special Committee to Review the ABA Model Rules 2002. A copy of the consolidated submission of the entire rules package may be requested by contacting the Ethics Department, The Florida Bar, 651 East Jefferson Street, Tallahassee, 32399-2300 or calling (850) 561-5600, Ext. 5780. Members who desire to comment on any of these proposed amendments may do so within 30 days of the filing of the Bar’s petition. The petition will be filed on or about December 1, in order to accommodate this correction notice. Comments should be filed directly with the clerk of the Supreme Court of Florida, and a copy must be served on the executive director of The Florida Bar. Rule 1-21.1, Rules Regulating The Florida Bar, governs these proceedings. Supreme Court acts on motions to disqualify < p> Emphasizing the need for an immediate ruling when a motion to disqualify a trial judge is made during a hearing or trial, the Florida Supreme Court adopted amendments proposed by the Rules of Judicial Administration Committee. Florida Rule of Judicial Administration 2.160, Disqualification of Trial Judges, was amended by the court on October 7 in case no. SC03-2169. The court had requested proposed amendments to make rule 2.160(f) consistent with its holding in Tableau Fine Art Group, Inc. v. Jacoboni, 853 So. 2d 299, 303 (Fla. 2003), that a motion for judicial disqualification “must be ruled on within 30 days following its presentation to the court.” Besides technical changes for making the rule more readable, the following substantive changes were made: • The movant is required to serve, rather than merely send, a copy of the motion to the judge in question. • The trial judge “shall rule on a motion to disqualify immediately, but no later than 30 days after the service of the motion as set forth in subdivision (c). • If the judge does not rule within 30 days, “the motion shall be deemed granted and the moving party may seek an order from the court directing the clerk to reassign the case.” The amendments become effective January 1, 2005, at 12:01 a.m.
Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Seniors should check to make sure they’re not spending more money than necessary on their Medicare plan before the current open enrollment period ends, Long Island-based experts say.Medicare open enrollment runs Oct. 15 through Dec 7, but because the issue of so complicated and there are many new changes, seniors would be wise to review their plans before the window closes.“I hope they at least check their plan and see if they have the right options,” said Gracemarie Horan-Luce, CEO of Port Jefferson-based Senior Health Plan Specialists, a company that guides seniors in New York, New Jersey, and Florida through the process. “My tag line is, ‘Are you Medicareless?’ Some people go in once and they don’t check. Some people spend a lot of money that they don’t have to.”Trained counselors are also offered for free by local government officials this time of year to assist Medicare enrollees in reviewing their coverage to make informed decisions.“People don’t realize how much they need us,” Horan-Luce said. “Whether you’re a kid or your a recipient — a person 65 and older — it’s very confusing and complex. It is a process that you have to plan for.“Your whole life, everyone’s chosen your insurance and now that your a senior … there’s 30 options — 10 supplements, 29 drug plans, and 30 managed cares,” she continued. “And a husband and wife are on separate plans, because you’re an individual now. … I know where to put you and guide you, but for someone it’s overwhelming not to be with your spouse that you’ve been married to for 50 years. But it goes by your health, so … if someone’s sick, the other doesn’t have to pay extra.”For more information, visit seniorhealthplanspecialists.com or contact the Nassau or Suffolk Office of the Aging to find out when a seminar is happening near you.
Thailand’s cabinet approved a plan to restructure troubled Thai Airways International Pcl’s finances through a bankruptcy court, the Southeast Asian country’s prime minister said on Tuesday.The plan for a court-led restructuring of the national carrier replaces a previous proposal of a government-funded rescue package that was heavily criticized in the country.The state-controlled airline’s troubles are the latest example of how the coronavirus pandemic is crippling the global airline industry. Colombia’s Avianca Holdings SA and Virgin Australia Holdings Ltd have filed for bankruptcy protection since the pandemic broke out.Airlines around the world have grounded the bulk of their capacity due to government directives and border restrictions.Thai Airways, though, had been in trouble even before the outbreak of the coronavirus due to stiff competition from budget airlines and bloated costs.It posted losses every year after 2012, except in 2016. In 2019, it reported losses of 12.04 billion baht ($377.3 million). Topics : “The government has reviewed all dimensions … we have decided to petition for restructuring and not let Thai Airways go bankrupt. The airline will continue to operate,” Prime Minister Prayuth Chan-ocha told reporters at a news briefing. “Thai Airways will be protected by the courts …. and a professional will be appointed to oversee the restructuring,” Prayuth said, adding the airline’s workers will continue to have jobs.Thai Airways said the plan will be implemented through the Central Bankruptcy Court and it would operate as usual as the restructuring took place.“Thai Airways will not be dissolved or go into liquidation or be declared bankrupt,” Thai Airways Acting President Chakkrit Parapuntakul said in a statement.Operations including passenger and cargo transportation will continue in parallel with the plan, he said.Thai Airways shares surged 11.7% on Tuesday, but are still down by about a third this year.

Swedish national pension fund AP7 has awarded two “green impact investment” mandates totalling SEK3bn (€294m).The SEK427bn pension fund, which manages the default option within Sweden’s premium pension system, said it had picked Ireland’s KBI Global Investors and UK-based fund manager Impax Asset Management to invest in companies that contribute to solutions for climate and environmental problems.KBI Global Investors is to run a clean-water mandate linked to one of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, while Impax Asset Management has been given a wider climate and environmental mandate that relates to several global sustainability targets.“AP7 aims, together with its managers, to develop measures and methods for gauging the sustainability benefits of investments,” the pension fund said. The fund received 23 tenders in the procurement process, according to the award notice on the EU’s official tenders site.Separately, AP7 has appointed London-based consultancy firm MJ Hudson Allenbridge to provide advice on “active alpha procurement”.AP7 put out the tender in February as part of a move to add risk-factor investments to its portfolio.Board reshuffleThe pension fund also announced a leadership change at the top of its supervisory board, with the government appointing Rose Marie Westman as AP7’s new supervisory board chair.Westman has been a member of the supervisory board since 2012, and replaces Bo Källstrand who is stepping down from the board after eight years.Westman is chief economist at Swedish advisory firm Burenstam & Partners, and was previously deputy chief executive at ABB Treasury Center in New York. She has also been a financial analyst and portfolio manager at Alecta.The government also appointed two new members to the AP7 supervisory board: Per Frennberg, CIO of Alecta, and Emma Ihre, head of sustainability at law firm Mannheimer Swartling.Frennberg and Ihre replace Westman and Hellen Wohlin Lidgard.Meanwhile, a new chair has also been appointed at national buffer fund AP2, with deputy chair Jan Roxendal moving up to the top position.Jeanette Hauff has been chosen as the new deputy chair, while Martina Björkman Nyqvist and Hanse Ringström have been appointed by the government as board members, AP2 announced.
(Image: Herbert Brothers Entertainment)BATESVILLE – It’s been a year since film crews began documenting Herbert Brothers Entertainment and the five brothers that live and operate the business from Batesville.A&E Network created the series that follows the daily life of the siblings who first hit the national stage when they won the “Doritos Crash the Super Bowl” in 2009.The Batesville-based company has continued success in the industry, producing commercials for major corporations like Pepsi and GoDaddy.The network had an interest in the Herbert Brothers because they compete with major advertising companies in New York and Los Angeles yet reside in the rural Midwestern town.The reality show will be focused around the brothers, including Joe Herbert who serves as Chief Entertainment Officer for the family business. He recently said there is no set date for the first episode.“The network has some internal issues they are working out, and in the meantime we are using the extra time to our advantage to improve the edit of the show so that it is the best it can be, and not rushed to meet a deadline,” Herbert said.When a launch date is set Herbert says, “We will be making sure everyone is well aware so you can all watch… and you better watch!”
