• Juliana v. The United States: Landmark Precedent in Climate Change Litigation by Julia Olson

    Julia Olson is co-lead counsel for Juliana v. The United States, an unprecedented lawsuit that involves 21 youth plaintiffs suing the federal government for its affirmative actions that have contributed to climate change. In this lecture, Julia details how the federal government actively promoted, subsidized, and bolstered a fossil-fuel-based energy system in the United States for more than 50 years while knowing about the pressing need for a broad-scale renewable energy transition. She describes why this case was brought against the federal government, what aspects of the U.S. Constitution have framed the claims of the case, and how the plaintiffs seek a unique remedy. Julia also describes the Fifth Amendment substantive due process claim and public trust rights claim that frame the innov...

We’’ll talk about trial courts, district courts, appeals courts, circuit courts, state supreme courts, and of course the one at the top - the U.S. Supreme Court. It’s all quite a bit to manage with jurisdictions and such, but it's important to remember that the vast majority of cases never even make it to court!

    United States v. Microsoft was a court case filed against Microsoft by the United States Department of Justice. The plaintiffs alleged that Microsoft abused monopoly power in its handling of operating system sales and web browser sales. The issue central to the case was whether Microsoft was allowed to bundle its flagship Internet Explorer (IE) web browser software with its Windows operating system. Microsoft stated that the merging of Windows and Internet Explorer was the result of innovation and competition, and that the two were now the same product and were inextricably linked together and that consumers were now getting all the benefits of IE for free.

    The Holy Land Foundation was the largest Islamic charity in the United States. Headquartered in Richardson, Texas, it was originally known as Occupied Land Fund. In December 2001, the U.S. government designated HLF a terrorist organization, seized its assets, and closed the organization. In 2004, a federal grand jury in Dallas, Texas charged HLF and five former officers and employees with providing material support to Hamas and related offenses. The prosecution's theory was that HLF distributed charity through local zakat (charity) committees located in the West Bank; that Hamas controlled those zakat committees; and that by distributing charity through Hamas-controlled committees, HLF helped Hamas win the "hearts and minds" of the Palestinian people.

On Wednesday, that judge set an aggressive schedule that would have the first trial take place in March 2019. U.S. District Judge Dan Polster is a federal judge in Cleveland, Ohio. He picked three lawsuits by municipalities and counties in the state to be the first cases against drug manufacturers and distributors to face a jury in the sprawling litigation. The lawsuits accuse the drugmakers of deceptively marketing opioids.

Julia also describes the Fifth Amendment substantive due process claim and public trust rights claim that frame the innovative nature of the case’s legal framework. Additionally, Julia highlights the 21 youth plaintiffs that represent different stories of American young people from across the country. Instead of money or damages for the injuries they are experiencing, the plaintiffs are asking the federal government to create a legally mandated Climate Recovery Plan that would transition the current U.S. energy system to a clean energy system by mid-century. This talk is a part of the Bedrock Lectures on Human Rights and Climate change, organized by the Spring Creek Project. Julia Olson is the executive director and chief legal counsel of Our Children’s Trust. She graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder in 1993 with a B.A. in International Affairs and from the University of California, Hastings College of the Law, with a J.D. in 1997. Julia worked for 15 years representing grassroots conservation groups in the West. She helped protect rivers, forests, parks, wilderness, wildlife, organic agriculture, and human health. After becoming a mother, and realizing the greatest threat to her children and children everywhere was climate change, she began focusing her work in that field and founded Our Children's Trust. Her work has led her to the intersection of human rights and environmental protection and she is passionate about working for youth. Julia also teaches environmental courses as an instructor at the University of Oregon School of Law.

The Holy Land Foundation was the largest Islamic charity in the United States. Headquartered in Richardson, Texas, it was originally known as Occupied Land Fund. In December 2001, the U.S. government designated HLF a terrorist organization, seized its assets, and closed the organization. In 2004, a federal grand jury in Dallas, Texas charged HLF and five former officers and employees with providing material support to Hamas and related offenses. The prosecution's theory was that HLF distributed charity through local zakat (charity) committees located in the West Bank; that Hamas controlled those zakat committees; and that by distributing charity through Hamas-controlled committees, HLF helped Hamas win the "hearts and minds" of the Palestinian people. The first trial, in 2007, ended in the partial acquittal of one defendant and a hung jury on all other charges. At a retrial in 2008, the jury found all defendants guilty on all counts. The 2008 trial of the charity leaders was the "largest terrorism financing prosecution in American history." In 2009, the founders of the organization were given sentences of between 15 and 65 years in prison for "funneling $12 million to Hamas." The organization's website stated: "Our mission is to find and implement practical solutions for human suffering through humanitarian programs that impact the lives of the disadvantaged, disinherited, and displaced peoples suffering from man-made and natural disasters." HLF, originally known as the Occupied Land Fund, was established in California in 1989 as a tax-exempt charity. In 1992, HLF relocated to Richardson, Texas. It had offices in California, New Jersey, and Illinois, and individual representatives scattered throughout the US, the West Bank, and Gaza. Among the founders of the Holy Land Foundation is Mousa Mohammed Abu Marzook, a political leader of Hamas, who provided substantial funds to the Holy Land Foundation in the early 1990s, before Hamas was designated a terrorist organization. HLF reported Marzook's donations on its tax returns. Marzook was deported from the US to Jordan in 1997. He was indicted on August 20, 2004, by a US federal grand jury in Chicago, Illinois. He and two other individuals were charged with a 15-year conspiracy to raise funds for terrorist attacks against Israel. Neither HLF nor any HLF officer was charged in the Chicago indictment. In the year 2000, HLF raised over $13 million. According to the United States Department of Treasury, HLF supported Hamas activities through direct fund transfers to its offices in the West Bank and Gaza that are affiliated with Hamas, and transfers of funds to Islamic charity committees ("zakat committees") and other charitable organizations that are part of Hamas or controlled by Hamas members. The Department of Treasury also reported that HLF funds were used by Hamas to support schools that served Hamas's ends by encouraging children to become suicide bombers and to recruit suicide bombers by offering support to their families. Edward Abington, Jr., former U.S. consul general in Jerusalem, acted as a defense witness and testified that during his daily CIA briefings he had never been informed that Hamas controlled the Palestinian charity groups mentioned. The Treasury Department designated HLF as a terrorist organization on December 4, 2001 under President Bush's Executive Order 13224 (Bush). The United States Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Asset Control designated HLF as a Specially Designated Global Terrorist, while the European Union froze its European Assets. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "EXPOSING: Roman Curia (Catholic Church) And Global Pedophila Networks" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mxGgRSRDuRM -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-

This paper begins with an overview of third-party litigation financing. It next examines current third-party financing practices in the United States. It then sets forth a critique of the practice, particularly the incentives it creates to engage in frivolous and abusive litigation. In this section, the paper also presents a case study on the Commonwealth of Australia, the first jurisdiction to permit third-party litigation funding, where such funding has dramatically increased litigation and given investors pervasive — even total — control over a plaintiff's litigation. Finally, the paper proposes that third-party litigation financing be prohibited in the United States to prevent these abuses. At the very least, the paper concludes, such funding should be banned in class actions and other forms of aggregate litigation.

"They are introducing amendments to rules and potentially even legislation to limit the growth of the industry," he says. "You would hope that the US Chamber of Commerce would see that small and medium-sized businesses are part of their constituency and they don't seem to do that, unfortunately."

SUBSCRIBE to our Google Earth flights channel - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC6UuCPh7GrXznZi0Hz2YQnQ International litigation, sometimes called transnational litigation, is the practice of litigation in connection with disputes among businesses or individuals residing or based in different countries. The main difference between international litigation and domestic litigation is that, in the former, certain issues are more likely to be of significance — such as personal jurisdiction, service of process, evidence from abroad, and enforcement of judgments. Although there are differences among the jurisdictional statutes of many American states, they all are subject to the due process requirements imposed by the Constitution of the United States. As a result, most American lawyers who are familiar with general principles of jurisdiction in one or more states of the US are able to guide their clients through jurisdictional issues in connection with disputes among litigants from different states. The situation is different with respect to jurisdictional principles in the international context. The first difference concerns long-arm jurisdiction, which is the statutory grant of jurisdiction to local courts over out-of-state defendants. A long-arm statute authorizes a court in a state to exercise jurisdiction over an out-of-state defendant. Without a long-arm statute, the courts in a state might not have personal jurisdiction over an out-of-state defendant. A state's authorization to exercise jurisdiction is limited by the federal Constitution. The use of a long-arm statute is usually considered constitutional where the defendant has certain minimum contacts with the forum state and there has been reasonable notice of the action against that defendant. Second, many countries take the view that American concepts of long-arm jurisdiction are too broad, and courts of such countries will not recognize judgments from American courts based on the exercise of American long-arm jurisdiction. Looking at the issue from the non-American perspective, courts in some countries exercise jurisdiction based upon principles that American courts would consider unfair and repugnant to American law. For example, in some countries, such as England and Israel, a court may exercise jurisdiction over a defendant that is considered to be a "necessary or proper" party in a case against a local defendant. It is not clear that such a jurisdictional basis would be upheld by American courts when the non-US judgment-creditor seeks to enforce in the United States. In every lawsuit, the plaintiff must effect service of process upon the defendant(s). In the international context, the issue of service of process is more complex. In the United States, service of process is routinely carried out by private lawyers or their agents. In contrast, many other countries consider the activity of serving process in a judicial proceeding to be one appropriate only for the government or an arm of the government. As a result of differing approaches to the issue of service of process, several nations signed the Hague Service Convention (1965), under which each member nation is required to establish a Central Authority to receive, review, and execute requests from foreign courts for carrying out service of process. Most countries that are signatories to the Hague Service Convention will accept requests for service that are signed by the lawyer for the plaintiff (claimant). Two exceptions are the UK and Israel. .....

A federal judge has been pushing for a settlement in lawsuits seeking to hold drug companies responsible for their roles in the U.S. opioid epidemic. On Wednesday, that judge set an aggressive schedule that would have the first trial take place in March 2019. U.S. District Judge Dan Polster is a federal judge in Cleveland, Ohio. He picked three lawsuits by municipalities and counties in the state to be the first cases against drug manufacturers and distributors to face a jury in the sprawling litigation. The lawsuits accuse the drugmakers of deceptively marketing opioids. It alleges that drug distributors ignored red flags indicating the painkillers were being diverted for improper uses. http://feeds.reuters.com/~r/Reuters/domesticNews/~3/gRlq21-9j9g/u-s-judge-schedules-2019-trial-in-opioid-litigation-idUSKBN1HI3EI http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Last Minute ... Trump'a litigation permit in the US In the case of the United States, a Maryland judge has allowed Trump to file a lawsuit against the constitutional violation. The Maryland Federal Court vetoed the request of the US Justice Department to end this case. With this decision, Trump will open up the possibility of examining the financial records of payments from sources outside the country and those who want to influence the White House. According to information from Reuters; The decision was taken by judge Peter Messitte of the US Greenbelt region of Maryland. According to Karara, US President Trump may be investigated about gifts and fees that are not approved according to the constitution of foreign states. Prosecutions will also apply to international hotels where President Trump owns in Washington. THAT WAS BENEFIT FROM TRUMP'S HOTEL TAX PRIVILEGES Maryland and DC advocates have argued that Trump International Hotel's operations lead to competitive disadvantages for nearby hotels and recreational facilities, and that Trump's hotel benefits from special tax concessions.
