sunday


I guess I have a lot to teach young lawyers.  Must be so, as now bus loads of them tour my office to see me use my dictating equipment.

If a bank employee foregoes his paycheck and loots the bank everyday does that make it ok? Of course not. Get it Donald?

Changing my profile picture on Match Dot Com has really increased interest.  I think it's fair as you can  see the obvious similarity to the real me.

Ninth Circuit Rules H1B Visa Program Violates 13Th Amendment

by Darren Smith
By Darren Smith, Weekend Contributor
In a surprise reversal of a District Court, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in what is likely to be a landmark decision ruled that the H1B Visa Program, an temporary worker policy of the United States Government, enacted to allow relaxed work permits of needed high-tech foreign workers, violated the 13th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. The act disparaged workers by forcing tech-workers to labor exceedingly long hours for below-market wages under legal coercion. The Court further held that employers held undue influence and subjected foreign workers to be bound to a particular employer or else face cancellation of their Visa after termination.
The software industry likely will be one of the largest segments undergo sudden changes to their hiring practices. Yet, the decision likely will be a boon for the Trump Administration in that the hiring of lower-cost foreign workers will reduce and recent citizen graduates of technical colleges and universities could have greater job opportunities.

Irish Court Awards €20,000 Damages To Woman Who Banged Her Knee On Restaurant Table

by jonathanturley
440px-TablebasicstructureHairdresser Annette O’Connor has been awarded for something that has happened to many diners.  When O'Connor was shown a table in The Mullingar Park Hotel restaurant, she sat down and hit her knee on the leg of the table.  Since the leg was not covered by the table cloth, Justice Mary Faherty upheld the prior damages and increased it to €20,000 and costs for the hidden danger.
