Equitable Tolling An Exceptions To The Statue Of Limitations

September 4th, 2015 by dHd3G2

By Arnold Hernandez

The statue of limitation is the specific statute that sets the period of time when a person can bring an action as plaintiff. After the state of limitations the right to bring an action expires and the claimant cannot being a lawsuit. It is a rule that is almost set in stone. Generally speaking nothing can be done once the statute of limitations runs out, but there are a few exceptions. The exceptions are few and depending on discretion. There is no statute providing for a specific extension period. The amount of time by which a statue can be extended varies and whether or not the statute is extended depends on the sound discretion of the judge.

An exception to the statue of limitation is called equitable tolling. In equitable tolling the prospective plaintiff is allowed to commence an action past the statue of limitations. In John McDonald v. Antelope Valley Community College District, 45 Cal.4th 88, 84 Cal.Rptr.3d 734 (2008), the court explained the principals of equitable tolling. In McDonald the trial court entered summary judgment in favor of defendant community college districint on the gounds that the claim was untimely under California Government Code Section 12900 et seq. The plaintiff argued equitable tolling, but the trial court held that equitable tolling was not available because procedure followed by plaintiff was voluntary and need not be exhausted before proceeding with a lawsuit. The court of appeal reversed holding that the traditional equitable tolling principles may apply to extend the state of limitations for filing a FEHA administrative complaint. The matter was appealed to the California Supreme Court and the Supreme Court held that the statute is tolled.

The court explained that the equitable tolling of the statue of limitations is a judically created, nonstatutory doctrine. The court explained that the doctrine of equitable tolling is designed to prevent unjust and technical fortfeitures of the right to a trial on the merits when the purpose of the statute of limitations has been satisfied. The legitimacy of the doctrine is unquestioned. It is a creature of the judiciary’s inherent power to formulate rules of procedure where justice demands it. The power is as old as the republic. The United States Supreme Court itself suspended the statute of limitations, because of the Revolutionary War.

Tolling the statute of limitations eases the pressure on parties concurrently seeking redress in two different forums with the danger of conflicting decisions on the same issue. By allowing the plaintiff eliminate the fear of claim fortfeiture the plaintiff can pursue informal remedies, which are encouraged by the courts. The court explained that the tolling doctrine does not compromise defendants’ significant interest in being promptly apprised of claims against them in order that they may gather evidence. The notice interest is satisfied by the filing of the first proceeding that gives rise to tolling. The court system also prefers to encourage one filing instead of duplicate filings which increases costs and the potentially conflicting results.

The principal of equitable tolling is a not well known but available remedy to the statute of limitations running out.

High Court of Australia dismisses appeal against conviction, compulsory voting

September 4th, 2015 by dHd3G2

Wednesday, April 17, 2013 

Last Friday, following over two years of lawsuit over failure to participate in general election, Anders Holmdahl attended a High Full Court of Australia hearing with an audio-link from Canberra to Adelaide, South Australia, claiming voting is a right, not a duty, citing the Australian constitution. However the Justices dismissed the application for leave to appeal against conviction, ruling it had “no prospect of success” over a point that the Commonwealth Electoral Act was enacted within power.

Anders Holmdahl was represented by Kevin Borick, QC, the president of the Australian Criminal Lawyers Association, throughout the process.

Anders Holmdahl cited “fundamental distinction” between the words vote, which he defined as “exercise of free will”; right, “something you are privileged to be granted”; and duty, “something you are required to do”. After a 20-minute discourse with the lawyer representing the applicant, Justice Kenneth Hayne said, “An appeal to this Court would enjoy no prospect of success. Special leave to appeal is refused.” and adjourned the Court. Justices Stephen Gageler, Patrick Keane were also present at the hearing and participated in the verbal discourse, also enquiring the lawyer about their reasoning but not specifying reasons other than what Hayne J said. Wikinews contacted both Anders Holmdahl and the High Court and confirmed there was no other documentation of reasons behind the judgment.

The standard High Court procedures involve hearing each matter by a single Justice and only escalating it after a special leave to appeal is granted. The current case had been irregular, as the matter had been escalated to the Full Court (three Justices) directly.

The appeal also had exhausted lower means of appeal before being lodged in High Court; the Supreme Court of South Australia had dismissed it on September 24, 2012. It cited that the Australian Constitution allows each state to enact their own election laws, and the Federal Parliament has the power to make laws “with respect to … matters in respect of which this Constitution makes provision until the Parliament otherwise provides”. The Court concluded that the Commonwealth Electoral Act was legislation enacted within power.

Prior to escalation to the Supreme Full Court of South Australia, in May 2012, a single Justice Gray had forwarded the matter for consideration of Full Court (three Judges) at his discretion. This happened several months after a Magistrate had recorded the conviction following a trial in February 2012. Anders Holmdahl originally pleaded not guilty during his first Magistrates court appearance in December 2011 regarding the August 21, 2010 election.

The electoral system of Australia requires all citizens to enroll. Then they must vote at each general election — election of members of the House of Representatives and Senate of the Parliament of Australia. At the time of the election, Anders Holmdahl was enrolled as an elector on the Commonwealth Electoral Roll for the Division of Hindmarsh.

The High Full Court hearing was a last instance of appeal with further escalation only possible at international level. Anders Holmdahl had decided to take the case before the United Nations Human Rights Council.

Pirate Bay case: Internet group attacks websites in “Operation Baylout”

September 3rd, 2015 by dHd3G2

Saturday, April 25, 2009 

Anonymous, the loosely defined online activist group most known for organizing mass protests against the Church of Scientology, has begun a campaign against the websites of entities associated with the prosecution in the Pirate Bay Trial, Wikinews has learned.

Termed “Operation Baylout”, the group claims that hundreds of volunteers are taking part in coordinated efforts to jam the websites of the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry and MAQS, a law firm working with the prosecution in the Pirate Bay case. As of Friday evening MAQS’s website read “Our website is currently under attack and we have therefore decided to shut it down until the attack ceases.”

The group is also coordinating efforts to jam the fax lines of the MPAA’s anti-piracy office and of prosecuting attorney Monique Wadsted.

Andrew Norton of Pirate Party International rejected the attacks, saying, “While we can’t condone these acts, it does show there is a wealth of feeling that opposes the decisions and actions of this trade body. Perhaps if this trade group [the IFPI] was not so focused on increasing their members’ short-term profits, and focused on long term growth and giving customers what they have wanted for the last 10 years, we would not all be in this situation now. However, if people really want to make a difference, and get a result, then they should be supporting their local pirate parties, which will give a lasting result, by providing a government that is more resistant to the lobbying efforts of the IFPI and their ilk.”

While one participant told Wikinews that he or she had taken part in the Church of Scientology protests, and while websites announcing the attacks claim to be affiliated with Anonymous, the decentralized and informal nature of the group makes it difficult to verify whether the attacks are a “legitimate” Anonymous operation.

Some seven hundred to one thousand users took part in an April 20 distributed denial of service (DDOS) “raid” against the IFPI’s website, taking it down for several hours.

The group makes use of Anonymous’s tactics from Project Chanology in coordinating raids. Ideas for targets are proposed in open discussion forums on a range of websites, mainly spinoffs of 4chan, although both participants Wikinews spoke to expressed disdain for that site particularly. When an idea finds favor with a significant portion of the group, it quickly — sometimes within four hours — evolves and is elaborated through a number of IRC channels. As a plan develops, word is put out to other members, and when enough people are assembled, the members activate customized but rudimentary programs downloaded from popular anonymous upload sites such as RapidShare to their home computers. These programs, “Epic Fail Cannon” and “Bayloutlazer”, execute a UDP ping flood against the target website. Most participants are by and large not computer experts, instead relying on the instructions and programming skills of others.

The group also coordinates its efforts through Anonymous’s message boards and one message announced, “Do local coordinating for individual cells on their respective Chanology boards.” Posters to those boards express common themes in support of The Pirate Bay: against censorship, for freedom of information and in personal concern about being jailed for internet piracy.

However, most participants are casual rather than dedicated members, involved “for lulz” — cheap entertainment at the expense of others.

One participant quoted to Wikinews the following statement from 888chan.org, a message board where the Baylout raids originated: “Project Chanology began as an online attack against Scientology because they fucked with our Internets. Nothing more. 2) It has since morphed into a caricature of itself, in which moralfags genuinely think it’s all about destroying an evil cult. We couldn’t care less about how evil they are except that they fucked with our Internets. 3) The lulz value of Project Chanology now lies in the fact that Anon has managed to personal army thousands of people into destroying our enemy for us. People will go to great lengths to participate and contribute to a “cause” when they don’t know they’re the victims of a very grand and subtle troll. The lulz is not in what they do but in the fact that they are being PA’d by Anons. This moralfag personal army in turn trolls everyone who takes them seriously, because they take themselves seriously, without ever being aware of the fact of the troll themselves. It’s pretty slick tbh.”

It is, however, entirely possible that this assertion is itself a bluff.

Coordinated attacks against Swedish government and media industry websites have become commonplace in retaliation for legal actions against The Pirate Bay.

The group plans its next raid to take place at 12:00 GMT on April 26, against the IFPI’s Swedish website. Previous attacks on websites have been attributed to the same group. On January 20, 2008 Anonymous claimed responsibility for attacking the Church of Scientology’s website which resulted in an arrest. In October 2008, Dmitriy Guzner, aged 18, admitted to the DDOS attack on the Church and pleaded guilty to computer hacking.

The Life Of Charles Revson, Revlon’s Founder

August 9th, 2015 by dHd3G2

By Michael Rupkalvis

The biography of Charles Revson, founder of cosmetics giant Revlon, is truly one exemplifying the American dream. By the time of his death, Revson – a business genius – had developed his tiny cosmetic store into one of the world’s largest cosmetics firms.

Charles Revson was born on October 11, 1906 in Montreal, Canada, the son of a cigar maker. The family moved to Manchester, New Hampshire when Charles was a boy.

After graduating from Manchester High School, he moved to Boston. He got a job as a dress salesman, and then worked in a firm selling cosmetics. At age 25 he quit that job, when he was refused a promotion, and determined that he would start his own cosmetics business. To do so, he brought his brother, Martin, as well as a cosmetics chemist, Charles Lachman, with him, and together they started Revlon Cosmetics in New York City.

The company was funded with a mere $300 and initially specialized in nail polishes (Charles would test the products on his own nails), differentiating itself from the competition by the wide assortment of colors they offered to their clientele, which consisted of salons and what was then a new phenomenon, department stores. Using pigments rather than the usual dyes, the company offered the American woman a rich-looking nail enamel in a larger variety of shades than had ever before been possible. Many of the firm’s clients across the country were introduced to the Revlon products by Charles personally, who would travel the nation by railroad on marketing trips. From there they expanded the Revlon product line to include lipsticks that matched the colors of their nail polishes, and later introduced perfumes and other fragrances. And in a mere six years, Revlon became a multi-million dollar venture.

Using his tough and demanding business style and his intuitive understanding of his female market, Charles Revson then helped build Revlon into the biggest retail cosmetics company in America, with more than 3,500 products and with annual sales at the time of his death in 1975 of an amazing $605,000,000. Revson served as company president from its inception until 1962, and then as chairman of the board until his death.

Perhaps the low point for Revlon occurred in the 1950’s, with the scandal that surrounded the popular television game show, The $64,000 Question, which Revlon sponsored. It was alleged that the Revson brothers required that the quiz show’s producers rig the show’s questions to ensure that contestants could be assured of winning, so that the show’s national popularity and high ratings continue. Neither brother was ever charged with any wrongdoing though, and while the show itself was decimated by the scandal, sales of Revlon products actually increased during that period.

As a person, Charles Revson was seen as a boundless perfectionist and difficult to work with, so much so that most of his business associates would eventually cut their ties with him. He is quoted as saying ‘The big will get bigger; the small will get wiped out’ and ‘I don’t meet competition. I crush it’. Notwithstanding his personality, the Revlon company flourished and with it did Charles’ personal fortune, which likely surpassed one billion dollars at his death.

While his reputation may have been one of tough businessman, Charles did also contribute significantly to charities. As an example, his Charles H. Revson Foundation has given over $150,000,000 in grants over the last 30 years.

Today the business Charles Revson started some seventy five years ago with a mere $300 investment is a name recognized in over 175 countries around the world for its cosmetics, perfume and skin care products. Its spectacular growth is a prime example of the drive and dreams that are the foundation of American entrepreneurial success.

South African prosecutors charge ANC leader Jacob Zuma with corruption

August 9th, 2015 by dHd3G2

Saturday, December 29, 2007 

Corruption-related charges have been brought against Jacob Zuma, the newly-elected leader of the African National Congress (ANC), according to his lawyer. A trial is scheduled to begin on August 14, 2008.

The charges stem from an arms deal with a French company, which is alleged to have involved bribes and fraud. Zuma’s financial adviser at the time, Schabir Shaik, was convicted in 2005 of attempting to solicit a bribe of US$72,500 per year from the arms company on Zuma’s behalf and was sentenced to 15 years in prison. Zuma was fired as deputy president in 2005 by South African President Thabo Mbeki due to the scandal.

Two-term ANC leader Mbeki recently lost an ANC leadership contest to Jacob Zuma, who garnered about 60 percent of delegate votes in his win.

Zuma had been charged with corruption in 2005, but the case was dismissed on procedural grounds. Michael Hulley, Zuma’s defence lawyer, indicated that they will strongly contest the new charges in court. Hulley also suggested that the South African government’s National Prosecuting Authority (NPA) and its anti-organised crime division known as The Scorpions, have carried out a smear campaign against Zuma.

“These charges will be vigorously defended, in the context of the belief that the Scorpions (NPA) have acted wrongly and with improper motive calculated to discredit Mr. Zuma and ensure that he play no leadership role in the political future of our country,” said Michael Hulley in a statement.

Given that the ANC has been the governing party in South Africa since the end of apartheid in 1994, it is likely that Jacob Zuma could become the next president after general elections in 2009. Zuma has said, however, that he would resign if he was found guilty by the courts.

Commonwealth Bank of Australia CEO apologies for financial planning scandal

August 8th, 2015 by dHd3G2

Thursday, July 3, 2014 

Ian Narev, the CEO of the Commonwealth Bank of Australia, this morning “unreservedly” apologised to clients who lost money in a scandal involving the bank’s financial planning services arm.

Last week, a Senate enquiry found financial advisers from the Commonwealth Bank had made high-risk investments of clients’ money without the clients’ permission, resulting in hundreds of millions of dollars lost. The Senate enquiry called for a Royal Commission into the bank, and the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

Mr Narev stated the bank’s performance in providing financial advice was “unacceptable”, and the bank was launching a scheme to compensate clients who lost money due to the planners’ actions.

In a statement Mr Narev said, “Poor advice provided by some of our advisers between 2003 and 2012 caused financial loss and distress and I am truly sorry for that. […] There have been changes in management, structure and culture. We have also invested in new systems, implemented new processes, enhanced adviser supervision and improved training.”

An investigation by Fairfax Media instigated the Senate inquiry into the Commonwealth Bank’s financial planning division and ASIC.

Whistleblower Jeff Morris, who reported the misconduct of the bank to ASIC six years ago, said in an article for The Sydney Morning Herald that neither the bank nor ASIC should be in control of the compensation program.
