Section draws up model release for civil cases

first_imgProbably little is more frustrating for civil lawyers and their clients than to have a case settlement worked out, and then have it bog down over the details of how it will be carried out.The Bar’s Trial Lawyers Section, familiar with that headache, has proposed a solution, approved by its executive council during the Bar’s Annual Meeting.The section has drawn up a model release for civil cases and soon will have it posted on the section’s revamped and improved Web site.“Oftentimes lawyers fight hard to resolve cases for their clients and come to a point where they think they have the case settled and all that needs to be done is sign the release,” said outgoing section Chair Tom Scarritt. “Unfortunately they find they have a huge disagreement on what should and should not be in the release. The Trial Lawyers Section undertook the task of attempting to put together a release, parts of which could be used by different lawyers in different cases to assist in the process of coming to a meeting of the minds on the final resolution of the case which is the drafting and the signing of the release.“We’re hopeful that this new release will be used throughout the state on a variety of cases and that the man on the street and the woman on the street will find that they are having their cases finally settled more quickly and more easily.”The release will be available on the section’s Web site www.flatls.org, when its overhaul is completed later this month.The section will continue to monitor legislative activities, Scarritt said, including possible bills to alter the tort system.“We had a legislative overview from [section legislative consultant] Buddy Jacobs. He basically said that there are two ways to ride a tiger, one is in its belly and one is on its shoulders, and the Trial Lawyers Section should be moving aggressively to ride the tiger on its shoulders through its legislative contacts and by working with other groups,” he said.The section’s focus, Scarritt said, is on guaranteeing access to the courts and preserving the independence of the legal system. Last year, the section opposed a bill that would have opened up many Judicial Qualification Commission records, including the identity of those filing complaints which critics said would inhibit people from filing complaints. The bill, which Scarritt called the “Bad Judge Protection Act,” eventually died.On other matters, the section is continuing to distribute its discovery handbook and its professionalism guidelines, and both publications are getting rave reviews, Scarritt said. The section is currently updating the professionalism publication. Both are also available on the section’s Web site.The section is also monitoring proposals submitted to the Supreme Court for changes in the way juries are chosen and managed, he said. The trial lawyers support some of the changes and dislike others, he noted, adding, “This is a major issue. Some proposals would do away with jury selection by lawyers, which we strongly oppose.”Aside from legal issues, the section’s membership drive in the past year proved very successful, with the organization growing from around 6,000 to around 7,000 members and becoming the Bar’s second largest section.“We did it by appearing at seminars and meetings and making a pitch to trial lawyers on what we do,” Scarritt said.At the executive council meeting, Scarritt stepped down as chair and Tallahassee attorney Dominic Caparello took over as chair for the 2002-03 Bar year.

TUV SUD NEL Splashes £1.45M on AMF’s Test Separator

first_imgTUV SUD NEL has invested £1.45 million in one of the world’s largest gravity test separators, as part of the build program for its new advanced multiphase facility.The new separator will test both multiphase and wet gas flows (oil, water and gas) and will ensure sufficient retention time, even at the largest flow rates.Weighing 270 tonnes and operating at pressures up to 150 bar, it will enable flow rates within the advanced multiphase facility (AMF) that are said to be 20 times greater than the performance of any other test facility in the world.This should meet the oil & gas industry’s growing demand for flow meter testing that more accurately reflects real-field conditions, to reduce measurement uncertainty and minimise fiscal inaccuracy.Muir Porter, infrastructure manager leading the installation project, said: “This is a major milestone for us as the test separator is at the heart of the AMF construction project. The next major phase will be to build the complex steel pipework which forms the test loop and feeds into the test separator, and which will deliver a multiphase flow test facility with a range beyond anything currently available on the market.”The £16-million AMF is designed to provide a new, best-in-class test facility, and will focus predominantly on the £50-billion-per-annum global subsea sector and wet gas business. It will facilitate company-led industrial projects and product development, hands-on industry training and academic research. Creating at least 17 new jobs, the centre will futureproof the delivery of innovative technical services to the oil and gas production market for the next 25 years.Scottish Enterprise has supported the development of the AMF with £4.9 million of research and development funding. Alongside the grant from Scottish Enterprise, TUV SUD NEL’s parent company, TÜV SÜD AG, is investing £11.1 million, which makes the project the largest capital investment to date in the company’s UK business.last_img read more

Microsoft: Office Web Apps for your Mobile – Let the Confusion Begin

first_imgTags:#enterprise#news#Products Massive Non-Desk Workforce is an Opportunity fo… IT + Project Management: A Love Affair alex williams Related Posts center_img What exactly from Office Web Apps and Office Mobile 2010 can you use on your mobile right now and what will be available when the product ships next spring?Mary Jo Foley does the best job of outlining what is happening here. Let’s take a sky high look and see if we can make sense of things so you know what to do if you really have an interest in giving Office a try on the mobile.First of all, Office Web Apps is now in beta and available for download. It is free.Here is the first point of confusion and in our book goes to the heart of the issue. The Office Web Apps you download today is NOT the Office Web Apps that will ship next spring. What you download today is actually the business version, which is the paid version of the product. We expect that if you download the application today then you will have to download a new one when the REAL Office Web Apps launches next spring.Let’s move on to the next issue. What is exactly available with Office Web Apps?According to Foley, it works with the following phones and apps: * IE on Windows Mobile 5/6/6.1/6.5* Safari4 on iPhone 3G/S* BlackBerry 4.x and newer versions* Nokia S60* NetFront 3.4, 3.5 and newer versions* Opera Mobile 8.65 and newer versions* Openwave 6.2, 7.0 and newer versionsHold on one more time. There is more we need to explain. According to Foley, you can only view documents in Office Web Apps. You can not write to Word, Excel, PowerPoint and OneNote documents.That’s true now and will remain true when the product launches next spring.On the other hand, Foley says….”Office Mobile 2010 enables editing and viewing of Word, Excel,PowerPoint, OneNote and SharePoint documents on phones running theWindows Mobile 6.5 operating system.”But will there ever be the ability to actually interact with documents using the free version of Office Web Apps? Yes, but Microsoft is still trying to figure out how that will all work. In the meantime, to run Office Mobile 2010, users will need Sharepoint on the back end. Why? Apparently, the back end running out of Sharepoint determines what document to post to your mobile. Got it? 3 Areas of Your Business that Need Tech Now Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of…last_img read more

9 months agoReally? Southgate surprise new name on Man Utd shortlist

first_imgReally? Southgate surprise new name on Man Utd shortlistby Paul Vegas9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveEngland coach Gareth Southgate is on the managerial shortlist at Manchester United.The Daily Mail says United have added Southgate to the list of potential managers to take over in the summer as they are becoming increasingly concerned that Mauricio Pochettino will stay at Tottenham.Southgate signed a new contract to stay on as England manager until the end of the 2022 World Cup in Qatar following the Three Lions’ success in Russia.A chance to jump ship may prove difficult following his recent contract renewal with the national team, and while Southgate has been added as a viable option to take over at United, the Red Devils are wary of his experience at club level.Prior to his success with England, Southgate has only had one spell at club level where he managed Middlesbrough for three years between 2006 and 2009.
