Biting off more than you can chew

first_imgLong nights and short summers don’t seem to have dulled the wit of Torben Melchior, president of the Danish supreme court. He told last weekend’s plenary session of the council of bars and law societies of Europe in Copenhagen that, despite public and media perceptions to the contrary, courts’ sentencing policies are in step with society’s expectations. But, as in Britain, urban myths persist. He told the story of a woman accosting a man in the street to demand compensation for the dog bite she had suffered. ‘He paid out 1,000 euros and the injured woman limped off. “But why did you pay her?” the man’s friend asked. “You don’t even own a dog!” To which the man replied: “Yes, but if it had gone to court, there’s no knowing what might have happened.”’last_img read more

Kent local authority legal teams join forces

first_imgThree mid-Kent local authorities are to join forces in a shared legal services project that aims to save more than £250,000 a year. Under the new model, legal staff at Swale, Maidstone and Tunbridge Wells borough councils will remain based at their authorities but support each other in a ‘virtual’ team. A spokesman for Swale said the model will free up the team and allow ‘qualified staff to spend as much time on fee-earning activity as possible’. Each of the teams has between five and eight members of staff. Three group managers will lead the teams locally and form a shared management team that will include a legal operations manager. Set-up costs of the new way of working include a £25,000 computer system, £20,000 set aside for training and up to £4,000 a year for additional travel. This will be offset by forecast savings of £269,000 a year, 17% of current spending, through ‘redesign, revised management arrangements and procurement efficiencies’, a spokesman said. No staff cuts are planned at the moment. Kent County Council is already known as a pace-setter in running local government legal services on commercial lines. Alasdair Robertson, head of business improvement at Maidstone, said: ‘We are seeing how we can best maximise Kent’s expertise, but it is not the same arrangement.’ Meanwhile, the scandal-hit London borough of Haringey is expanding its legal services department to 80, with five new appointments. Posts include assistant heads of legal services in social care, corporate and litigation, and commercial.last_img read more

Emancipation Walk and Concert heads to Grand Bay

first_img Share Share Share Sharing is caring! Tweetcenter_img 88 Views   no discussions LocalNews Emancipation Walk and Concert heads to Grand Bay by: Dominica Vibes News – July 28, 2016 The southern city of Grand Bay will host the 2016 Emancipation Walk and Concert on Friday July 29, 2016. According to Cultural Officer Delmance ‘Ras Mo’ Moses, this move is in an effort to decentralize the 2016 Emancipation Celebrations which were launched on July 12. By bringing the annual walk and concert to Grand Bay, it will also pay homage to the African slave ancestors as the first shipment of enslaved Africans to arrive in Dominica were brought to Geneva Estate in Grand Bay. “Hence the preservation of culture,” Moses said expounding that the conditions which contributed to this cultural preservation is the isolation of that plantation during slavery. “We don’t want to forget those efforts to preserve our culture and the fact that the first Africans on Dominican soil were brought to Grand Bay.”The walk commences at Tete Lalay, where before proceeding, participants will engage in drumming and libations. “These libations are meant for us to remember the dawning memory of those who died in the middle passage, but also to celebrate the resistance of the African spirit, remember maroons…they fought and resisted, we want to remember them; it’s an occasion for us to do that.”In addition to remembering the African ancestors, the activity will also seek to honour those who have contributed to the island professionally, socially, politically or culturally. Cultural activities will follow with performances from artists from Grand Bay including from the Midnight Groovers.Moses thanked the Grand Bay Village Council for their collaboration in allowing the event to occur during their summer season. “That night it would have been a summer season night they are collaborating with us and supporting what we doing.”last_img read more

Their proposed rematch will not happen this year due to Pacquiao’s unavailability, promoters say. CHRIS HYDE / GETTY IMAGES [av_textblock size=’18’ font_color=” color=”]BRISBANE, Australia – Manny Pacquiao won’t box Jeff Horn in a rematch of their WBO world welterweight title fight this year because the Filipino senator will be busy with government duties.Pacquiao’s unavailability for a proposed Nov. 12 bout was announced Friday by Australian promoters of the fight.Horn beat Pacquiao in a contentious unanimous decision in Brisbane on July 2. Pacquiao at the time said he wanted a rematch.“On behalf of the Philippines government, he (Pacquiao) will be part of a delegation that will visit China in the middle of his proposed preparation period for the fight,” local promoter Dean Lonergan said.“Pacquiao is committed to fighting again in 2018 and a rematch with Jeff Horn for the WBO world welterweight title,” Lonergan added.American contender Jesse Vargas, a former world title holder, could possibly take Pacquiao’s place for a fight later this year against Horn, the promoters said.Pacquiao beat Vargas in a unanimous decision last November in Las Vegas.For his part, Top Rank Promotions chief executive officer Bob Arum said he will clarify the cancellation of the rematch.“Manny is deciding if he wants a rematch this year or next year,” Arum told ESPN. “If he decides to postpone it, we will make a fight for Jeff in November against a good opponent in Brisbane.”“I imagine he has many duties as a senator. He is no longer a young guy and the last fight was very physical, and he may need more time to get ready for a rematch,” said Arum. “We’ll know in the next few days.”A week after his loss to former schoolteacher Horn, Pacquiao said he still disagreed with the unanimous decision that resulted in him losing the welterweight title, despite an independent rescoring of the fight confirming the unheralded Australian’s win.The WBO said in a statement then that three of the five independent judges who scrutinized the bout awarded it to Horn, one awarded it to Pacquiao and one scored it a draw.The review concluded that Horn won seven rounds to Pacquiao’s five. The fight took place before 51,000 fans at an outdoor stadium in Brisbane. (AP)[/av_textblock][/av_one_full]last_img read more
