Using marketing leading digital signature technology, Scottish letting professionals and tenants can now complete private rental tenancy agreements entirely online, faster and more efficiently than ever before.Ross MacDonald of Lettingweb, said, “We have designed the Letting Professionals Model Tenancy. It simply builds on the Government’s template with the insights we can bring as professionals working at the heart of the sector.”Malcolm Warrack of LetScotland and Cullen Property Ltd said, “The Scottish Government led the way in creating the ground rules for a fair and secure private rental sector and the property professionals have collaborated and taken responsibility for delivering the objectives of the Government’s new legislation with the LPMT. We are moving forward to establish best practice and I am delighted to be involved.”Lettingweb Model Tenancy Agreement ‘2.0 tenancy agreements January 12, 2018The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

Born the same year as the Supreme Court’s groundbreaking ruling in Brown v. Board of Education that declared segregation unconstitutional, Martha Minow saw such discrimination firsthand as a schoolgirl in Illinois and later in Washington, D.C.Though desegregation became law, its enforcement wasn’t guaranteed. The 1964 Civil Rights Act eventually changed that, and Minow, now dean of Harvard Law School, said that as long as she can remember she’s been “engaged with the struggles over whether and how schools can offer equal opportunities and actually integrate students of different races and backgrounds.”Now, Minow has published “In Brown’s Wake: Legacies of America’s Educational Landmark.” Saddened by many discussions emphasizing Brown’s shortcomings, Minow said she thought it was worth addressing its legacies, including some surprising ones.“Inspired and guided by Brown, advocates since the early 1960s pursued equal schooling along lines of gender, disability, language, immigration, socioeconomic class, religion, and sexual orientation — and secured federal and state protections and significant programs in each area,” said Minow. “Brown also triggered movements for school choice — initially by people seeking to avoid racial desegregation, then by judges and school officials trying to achieve it, and now as a motor for educational improvement.”Minow described how Brown stimulated social science research on the influences of contact across lines of social difference, which now deals with Palestinians and Israelis, Catholics and Protestants in Northern Ireland, and people connecting in online communities. “In fact, since 1954, Brown has offered a touchstone for social change entrepreneurs inside and beyond the United States,” she added.But, Minow notes, issues of schooling and race have become more complicated since Brown’s passage.“Over time, the legal principle of Brown was reinterpreted to ban any school assignment of a student using race — even when designed to produce racial integration,” she said. “Now it is less racial than economic differences that spell disparate educational opportunities; and it’s less a legal problem than a political one.”Still, said Minow, “Brown broke the back of Jim Crow laws mandating racial exclusions and white supremacy. And the idea that all students deserve educational opportunity guides treatment of children with learning disabilities, developmental delays, and physical disabilities; recent immigrants and children learning English; and girls who now play soccer, study physics, and anything else boys study. All kids benefit from Brown’s vision of educational equal opportunity.”

Recognizing that thousands of hurricane displaced families from Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama are now in Florida and many are in need of emergency and long-term legal assistance, The Florida Bar Foundation is encouraging its legal assistance providers to help, according to Foundation President Bill Davis.Meeting in Tallahassee in September, the Foundation’s board authorized Foundation grantees to use 2005 and 2006 grant funds to provide emergency and long-term legal assistance to such displaced families who earn up to 200 percent of the federal poverty guidelines and encouraged grantees to relax or expand their client eligibility guidelines to do so.The board also authorized the Foundation’s staff to support and collaborate with IOLTA programs and other legal assistance programs in Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama.The Foundation legal assistance grantees are also being encouraged to consider the need for additional resources to serve the continuing legal assistance needs of victims from the 2004 hurricanes in Florida and those displaced by this year’s storms and to contact Foundation staff for possible Foundation support to help address those needs.Other legal entities in Florida also are continuing to do what they can to help, including: • Ruden McClosky donated $145,270 to the American Red Cross Hurricane 2005 Fund. Checks from the firm’s attorneys and staff were presented to representatives of the American Red Cross Broward County Chapter at the firm’s Ft. Lauderdale office on September 27. “Through a matching funds program, the firm offered to match each partner’s donation dollar for dollar, and for each associate or staff member, the firm matched $4 per each dollar donated,” said David Lane, Ruden McClosky’s executive director. • Florida Coastal Law School in Jacksonville has taken in two Tulane University School of Law students and one Loyola University New Orleans School of Law student. All three students are officially visiting students, and will receive degrees from their original institutions. • Nova Southeastern University’s Student Animal Legal Defense Fund will hold a Katrina Rita Animal Relief benefit at the Interlude Bar & Cabaret at Riverwalk October 23, from 4-7 p.m. All proceeds from any drinks purchased will go to the Humane Society of America to help the animal victims of the past storms, as well as any donations made. The group also will be selling raffle tickets for lots of prizes in the atrium at NSU at various days and times to be announced. • The Palm Beach County Bar, together with the Palm Beach County Medical Society, recently helped raise more than $14,000 for hurricane victims at a cocktail reception held at E.R. Bradley’s in West Palm Beach. The money will be donated to various charities, including the American Red Cross, United Way, Salvation Army, and other organizations geared to assisting hospitals and law firms that have been destroyed by the storm. • Frese Hansen, Attorneys at Law in Brevard County has donated $10,000 to the Salvation Army to assist with food, water, clean-up kits, and financial aid for hurricane survivors. “It’s a disaster no American could ignore,” said partner Gary Frese. “Frese Hansen has a special relationship with the Salvation Army, so they were the avenue we chose to help the people of the Gulf Coast.” • The Jacksonville Bar has asked its members to make contributions through the bar to the American Red Cross-Hurricane Relief. They now have commitments of over $35,000.• The Eighth Judicial Circuit Bar’s Young Lawyers Section organized a September blood drive to benefit the victims of Hurricane Katrina.• The Florida Unemployment Appeals Commission’s staff, reports Chair Alan Orantes Forst, collected about $1,500 in cash and supplies to deliver to the displaced individuals.

Sign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York [dropcap]T[/dropcap]he hottest—and potentially the closest—race in Nassau County pits Hempstead Supervisor Kate Murray, a Republican who’s run the town for 12 years, against acting Nassau District Attorney Madeline Singas, a Democrat, who took command in January.A poll released a month before the Nov. 3 election showed Murray holding a six-point lead over Singas, with a margin of error of 4.9 points, plus or minus, so it could be a lot narrower than that. Conducted by Siena Research Institute for News12/Newsday, the survey tellingly had Murray below the 50 percent approval mark—the political equivalent of the Mendoza line that measures mediocrity in baseball—with 48 percent to Singas’ 42 percent, and 10 percent undecided.The two women’s campaign could also be the county’s costliest contest this year. According to the most recent filings, Murray has collected almost $1.4 million, while Singas has raised nearly $1.6 million.In terms of endorsements there’s no contest, depending on who’s counting. Murray, who’s been part of the Hempstead Republican machine for years, has racked up the support of 28 police unions in Nassau, Suffolk, and even New York City. She’s never been a prosecutor, whereas Singas has served that role for 24 years, starting in the Queens District Attorney’s office before being asked in 2006 by then-Nassau DA Kathleen Rice to head a newly created Special Victims Bureau. Four years ago, Rice promoted Singas to chief assistant. Her campaign countered Murray’s police union backing with 64 former prosecutors endorsing the acting DA.Murray’s lack of prosecutorial experience didn’t deter Rudy Giuliani, the former Republican mayor of New York City and ex-US Attorney for the Southern District, from proudly appearing with her in a new political ad. Looking into the camera, he says, “It takes a commitment to law and order to be a good district attorney. That’s Kate Murray.”Jay Jacobs, Nassau Democratic chairman, acknowledged that Murray “calls herself the ‘law and order candidate.’ That’s because all of her experience comes from watching Law and Order on television.”The county leader also took issue with Murray’s ubiquitous lawn signs in Nassau that refer to her as “tax cutter” and “crime fighter.”“It’s a blatant lie,” he told the Press. According to town records, the total town tax levy is reportedly 40 percent higher now than it was in 2003 when she was appointed town supervisor.“She has raised taxes virtually every other year in the Town of Hempstead,” Jacobs said. “She is not a tax cutter, and she is certainly not going to be a crime fighter. She has never cracked open the criminal code, the penal code, of New York State.”That view was echoed by a recent New York Daily News endorsement of Singas, which slammed Murray as “wholly unqualified” after she spoke with the Daily News Editorial Board: “Whether the issue was bail, grand jury immunity, prosecution of drunken drivers or investigation of police shootings of unarmed civilians, Murray was clueless about the law.”Nassau PBA President Jim Carver, a prominent Murray supporter, took issue with that conclusion. “She’s not clueless about the law. That’s their opinion.” Nor was he concerned that Murray had no prosecutorial experience. “The DA never prosecutes a case, anyway. The DA’s office is about vision and how you manage your people.”“I think there’s some truth to that,” said Richard Klein, the distinguished professor of criminal law at Long Island-based Touro Law Center. “Someone who’s a very good administrator can transfer those skills to running a sanitation department or running a DA’s office. I think it’s certainly helpful if someone understands how a DA’s office operates. We have to remember that the DA doesn’t really go into court. It’s very, very rare when the DA actually makes a court appearance. But how much of a learning curve do you want?”Interestingly, electing a district attorney with prosecutorial experience is also the key issue in the hotly contested Staten Island race, but there the politics are reversed. Giuliani has weighed into both but taken contradictory positions.The Staten Island campaign involves Michael E. McMahon, a prominent local Democrat whom Giuliani painted “as a legal lightweight” when he spoke on behalf of the Republican challenger, Joan Illuzzi. Until she resigned this spring to run for DA, she served as senior trial counsel for Manhattan DA Robert M. Morgenthau, a Democrat, who praised her legal expertise and ethics, telling The New York Times that Illizzi is “going to want to see justice is done in every case.” Her campaign brands Illuzzi as “a prosecutor, not a politician.” McMahon, who served one term in Congress, slams her for spending her career in Manhattan.No one can make that claim stick against Murray, who grew up in Levittown, or Singas, daughter of Greek immigrants who founded the Singas Family Pizza chain in Queens.But where they stand in Nassau is another issue.“There’s a real question about Kate Murray’s ability to address, to respond and seek the input of a community that is basically the fodder for the criminal justice system,” said Frederick Brewington, a noted civil rights attorney in Hempstead.“The black and brown communities of Nassau County are the ones that are the great majority of the population in our jail. Our young people are being made part of the criminal justice system that because of the hue of their skin is unforgiving. They will bear marks well into their adult livelihoods that will prevent them from having jobs, but if they happen to be white, they might be forgiven.”Brewington, who’s handled cases involving police brutality against civilians, was questioned whether Murray’s many endorsements by the police unions might compromise her ability to prosecute impartially, should she be elected Nassau district attorney.“There is a necessary working relationship between the district attorney’s office and the police department, but that necessary relationship requires separate bedrooms,” Brewington told the Press. “And in this situation it appears as though what candidate Murray has decided to do is break down the wall that requires the DA to be an independent source for justice. Remember, the district attorney is the lead law enforcement officer for the county, not the commissioner, not the county executive. Her independence is necessary to ensure that citizens’ rights are protected and respected in addition to enforcing the law. She’s a constitutional officer that has very important responsibilities. By showing that she is basically depending on the police to be her voice in this campaign, she has abdicated that independence.”“If a prosecutor is dependent and beholden upon the police for getting elected, it’s just like any other part of our political system,” explained Touro’s Professor Klein. “An elected official pays back those who helped their campaign, through financial contributions or here, perhaps, even more meaningfully, by endorsements.”Klein raised another, equally troubling concern that he had.“What does the DA do if the DA has a case and it seems like the cop has lied?” the professor asked. “If I’m the DA, and I reach a conclusion that the police are fabricating a case, is the fact that the police have endorsed me as a candidate going to come into the picture? Or am I going to independently say, ‘I don’t believe this police officer, and therefore the case has to be dismissed.’”Murray’s campaign spokesman, Bill Corbett Jr., insisted that she’d be an independent district attorney.“Kate Murray will aggressively investigate all allegations regardless of the subject’s political party, uniform or any other factors other than the facts of the case,” he said. “It speaks volumes when the men and women of law enforcement who know and have worked with the acting district attorney for almost a decade line up with one voice to endorse Kate Murray.”Another issue between the women is how they’d respond to the rising use of heroin in Nassau.At the beginning of September, Murray held a press conference with Carver, the Nassau PBA president, Nassau County Police Department Detectives Association President Glenn Ciccone and Warren Zysman, CEO of Addiction Care Interventions, to call “for the formation of a Nassau County Task Force to combat the rising epidemic of heroin throughout our region,” which her campaign said in a press release, had increased “over 100 percent in fatal heroin overdoses (YTD) in 2015 versus last year.” According to the campaign, “the officials will seek a greater presence of both police officers and detectives on the streets to track down dealers, interrupt the home delivery of drugs and provide educational resources to young people.”How that initiative would differ from the Nassau County Heroin Task Force, a bipartisan effort formed in the summer of 2009 by the county executive, the district attorney and the police commissioner as well as community activists, local leaders and public health advocates, is a matter of interpretation. This ongoing task force has been meeting on the last Friday of the month since its inception, and as far as the Press can determine Murray has never attended. Her campaign spokesman, Bill Corbett Jr., said Murray’s proposed task force would be created “within the police department.”The Singas campaign says that Murray is only a recent convert to the cause, whereas the acting DA has been prosecuting drug-related crimes for almost two decades. To prove their point, they released a video of the candidates’ debate sponsored by the Garden City Chamber of Commerce on Sept. 30, which quotes Murray saying that “I have been talking about this heroin epidemic, this heroin scourge, since I was nominated to run for District Attorney.”Murray’s supporters counter that Singas hasn’t done enough to curb the “heroin epidemic.”“Madeline is a little bit in denial,” claims the PBA’s Carver. “She’s addressing it, but if she’s addressing it, how come heroin deaths have doubled in the last year?”Another contentious issue aims at the heart of Hempstead itself, the most powerful bastion of Republican power in the Empire State. In its editorial endorsement of Singas, the Daily News wrote: “Like Murray, former state Senate Majority Leader Dean Skelos is a product of the Hempstead GOP. In May, federal prosecutors filed a criminal complaint that depicted Skelos and his son as participating in a wide-ranging extortion scheme. A district attorney’s duties include cracking down on corruption.”In Singas’ new cable TV ad, the Hempstead supervisor is shown at a ribbon cutting ceremony wielding scissors with state Sen. Dean Skelos (R-Rockville Centre) holding the blue ribbon and smiling. To the Daily News editorial board, Murray conceded that she hadn’t read the federal indictment of Skelos and his son, charged by Preet Bharara, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, a position once held by Giuliani. Snarkily, the editorial concluded that “she’s perfect for the machine.”Murray’s town spokesman, Mike Deery, insists that the supervisor has scrupulously followed all the proper contracting procedures. Her campaign carped that Singas is just raising this issue for political purposes right before the election and it otherwise would have no merit.One thing’s for sure, the voters will have a clear choice because these two candidates for district attorney have taken very different paths to be on this ballot.Singas, who lives in Manhasset, went to Barnard College, majoring in political science, and got her law degree from Fordham University in 1991, when she entered the Queens District Attorney’s office. She became Nassau DA Kathleen Rice’s top deputy in 2011, and acting DA when Rice was elected to Congress to replace former Rep. Carolyn McCarthy.“For me, the message is that who the district attorney is matters,” Singas told the Press. “Experience matters. Qualification matters. And to do this job, even though it’s an elected job, is completely apolitical. It requires someone with a very specific skill set. It requires someone who speaks to criminal justice issues, knows criminal law, and that’s very stark in my race. My opponent has none of that. She is a political animal who came up through the political machine, so the choice for voters is very clear. You could either have a prosecutor who is going to be the DA or you can have a politician.”Murray got a Bachelor’s degree in English literature from Boston College in 1984 and her law degree from the Boston-based Suffolk University Law School in 1988. Murray worked as a junior lawyer in two firms and as an assistant in the state attorney general’s office before getting elected to the Assembly in 1998 and Hempstead Town clerk in 2001.“My father got involved in local politics and I did too,” Murray told the Press. “I loved it from a very early age… Actually, the three offices that I’ve held–I was the first woman in each of those. So I like to think three fewer glass ceilings to shatter.” She said she was glad when she got the chance to run Hempstead Town. “I think there’s a serious role to be played as a government servant–that’s what I prefer to call myself. I always cringe when I hear [the word] ‘politician.’”–With Jaime Franchi,Alure cube,Alure cube

Governor Wolf Praises Passage of State CHIP Reauthorization, Urges Federal Action Healthcare, Human Services, Public Health, Statement Harrisburg, PA – Governor Wolf today praised the Pennsylvania General Assembly for voting to reauthorize Pennsylvania’s Children’s Health Insurance Program and called on the U.S. Congress to take action on the federal reauthorization:“I applaud the Pennsylvania General Assembly for voting to reauthorize Pennsylvania’s CHIP program but in order to provide benefits to the more than 175,000 children enrolled, Congress must take action immediately. Congress is failing the children of Pennsylvania and causing unnecessary anxiety for families around the holidays. I call on the U.S. House and Senate leaders to make CHIP a priority and stop this obstruction. Pennsylvania’s CHIP program depends on federal funding and it is at risk without Congress doing its job. Our kids and families deserve peace of mind about their ability to go to the doctor and get care.”Federal funding covers approximately 90 percent of the $450 million cost of Pennsylvania’s CHIP program.
