  • CBP Seizes Smuggled $390k at San Juan

    U.S. Customs & Border Protection seized almost $400,000 USD that was part of a bulk cash smuggling incident in the middle of March at the Port of San Juan, in Puerto Rico. The story is interesting because of its novelty. The amazing ability of CBP officers do detect when things are “off” is also on display in this story. Basically, a cargo ship was leaving Puerto Rico with two vehicles within it (and presumably, much more other cargo). The vehicles were inspected, and inside was found 2 “excessively heavy” 55 gallon barrels of liquid paint. Inside the barrels were 72 packages of currency totaling $384,840 dollars. In a second, apparently related, incident, CBP seized $10,000 that was vacuum packed into an ice tea container, all hidden within a cardboard barrel. Here’s the full story: SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico – U.S. Customs and Border Protection Officers seized over $390K concealed inside two vehicles in separate…..

  • Deep Fake News

    Emma Gonzalez, a gun control advocate and survivor of the Parkland, Florida school shooting, defiantly ripped up the U.S. Constitution on camera. Or did she? A grainy animated image of Gonzalez’s supposed subversion circulated throughout the Internet before being corrected by multiple users. It was a fake: a deep fake, because the video image looked so seemingly real. For law professors Robert Chesney and Danielle Citron, the video manipulation of Gonzalez represents only the beginning of the significant threat deep fakes pose to democracy. In a recent paper, they explain that a web of emerging technologies can, in the wrong hands, facilitate the fabrication of fake but convincing “video or audio making it appear that someone said or did something.” According to Chesney and Citron, these deep fakes pose serious risks to individuals’ reputations, democratic discourse, and well-functioning government. Despite these significant problems, Chesney and Citron….. To continue reading this legal news please click Read full information... […]

  • Got Soy Beverage?

    Almond water. Oat drink. Soy beverage. You may see these products and other similar items coming soon to a grocery store near you. About one-third of all U.S. households buy some form of plant-based “milk.” These plant-based alternatives account for about 13 percent of total “milk” sales in the United States. But Scott Gottlieb, the Commissioner of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), has reportedly expressed interest in restricting the use of the term “milk” by enforcing federal rules aimed at combatting misleading labels. Under current law, a label is misleading if it mischaracterizes an ingredient or nutrient level that is required to be in that type of food or beverage product. FDA is responsible for defining a broad range of food products, and these definitions determine what producers are allowed to claim on a label. If FDA finds a label to be misleading, it can enforce these standards by taking actions like seizing….. To continue reading this legal news please click Read full information... […]

  • Opening Up the Law to Accommodate Non-Binary Genders

    Jessica A. Clarke, They, Them and Theirs, 132 Harv. L. Rev. 894 (2019). Ann E. Tweedy Professor Jessica Clarke‘s law review article, They, Them, and Theirs, published this year in the Harvard Law Review, does important work in conceptualizing ways that anti-discrimination and other laws can change to accommodate non-binary people. This piece adds significantly to the emerging body of legal scholarship concerning non-binary persons, including such projects as The Future of Legal Gender: A Critical Law Reform Project,  in the UK, and Ontario Human Rights Commission: Backgrounder – Talking about Gender Identity and Gender Expression in Canada. One of the most interesting aspects of Professor Clarke’s approach is her rejection of a one-size-fits-all solution in favor of a more contextual and pluralistic set of solutions. As Professor Clarke explains, non-binary persons pose special challenges for the existing legal framework of….. To continue reading this legal news please click Read full information... […]

  • Recap on Fast Break : Radioactive Materials

    We had a really enjoyable Fast Break yesterday on a non-traditional health law topic: radioactive material regulation. As it turns out, nearly all hospitals and larger provider groups, particularly those doing imaging, oncology, or neurosurgery, routinely use or come into contact with regulated radioactive material. PET scans, for instance, which are operated by a significant number of hospitals, rely on radioactive isotopes as the basis of the imaging procedure...

  • Religious Accommodations in the Workplace

       Links to material posted on the Internet highlighted in COLORThe New York State Division of Human Rights announced a statewide public education campaign to remind New Yorkers about their legal rights and protections regarding religious accommodation in the workplace. The Division has partnered with local chambers of commerce to make employers aware of their legal obligations and responsibilities in providing religious accommodations to applicants and employees. The Division has also created a brochurefor workers, informing them of the ways in which New York State law allows for religious accommodation and protection. Through these efforts, the Division seeks to reduce the potential for religious discrimination, harassment and retaliation in the workplace.“With the sacred holidays of Easter, Passover and Ramadan just around the corner, it’s important that New Yorkers of all faiths know that they do not have to choose between their faith and a…..

  • Social Security Disability Benefits: How Long Does It Take for a Decision to Be Made?

    When you are ill or injured and unable to work, every week that goes by without a paycheck can be difficult and life-altering.  As such, many people who file for Social Security Disability Benefits are anxious to move through the application process as fast as possible in order to get a quick resolution of their claim. Unfortunately, the Social Security Disability approval process can drag on for years, leaving injured and disabled workers in limbo until their benefits are approved. There is simply no way to predict how long your case will take, as the government is not bound by any deadlines for processing disability applications. Likewise, most Social Security Disability cases end up getting denied on the initial application and the first appeal and require an appeal to an Administrative Law Judge (ALJ) in order to successfully obtain benefits. Again, this process can take years, depending on a variety of factors including the number of cases pending before the hearing…..

    §75 of the Civil Service Law permits the appointing authority to place an employee served with disciplinary charges on leave without pay for up to 30-days pending the completion of the disciplinary hearing and the determination of the penalty to be imposed in the event the employee is found guilty of one or more of the charges and specifications filed against him or her.* This absence is deemed "disqualifying misconduct" for the purposed of eligibility for unemployment benefits associated with such absence and thereafter.An individual [Claimant] employed by a municipality was alleged to have committed numerous violations of her employer's code of conduct by, among other things, failing to report to work on time, being absent without authorization, sleeping and lounging during her shift and refusing to comply with her supervisor's directives. The employer placed Claimant on a 30-day suspension without pay and served Claimant with disciplinary…..
