Summit to focus on criminal justice system

first_img Summit to focus on criminal justice system Summit to focus on criminal justice system Exploring ways to improve Florida’s criminal justice system without deference to any sacred cows is the goal of a new annual summit being planned by the Criminal Law Section.Section Chair Stephen Everhart, a Stetson University law professor, related the plans to the Board of Governors in August, and said the section hopes to attract state, national, and international experts.The idea for a summit grew out of his discussions with the late University of Florida College of Law Professor Gerald Bennett, Everhart said, who was also one of Everhart’s former instructors.“We wanted to get some of the best prosecutors, public defenders, judges, and academics from around the world and look at the criminal justice system and see how we can do it better, faster, and cheaper,” he said. “Should we have appointed prosecutors, as opposed to elected prosecutors? What about public defenders?“Why not abolish the Fifth Amendment, in conjunction with the abolition of the death penalty?”Other subjects, he said, would include looking at ways to improve law schools, including bringing in the best judges, prosecutors, and defenders as instructors, extending merit retention to state attorneys and public defenders if they are appointed, and examining plea bargaining.“After studying an issue, we might recommend that we make no changes, or we might agree to meet again and study the issue further,” Everhart wrote in his column for the section’s newsletter. “But the idea would be to consider everything.”The plan is to hold the summit in conjunction with the Bar’s June Annual Meeting, and Everhart said it will be called the Professor Gerald T. Bennett Memorial Criminal Justice Summit.He has named Statewide Prosecutor Melanie Hines, chair-elect of the section, and himself as co-chairs for the first summit, and Stetson law Prof. Bob Batey will be helping with the planning and production. It is planned for next June and will focus on plea bargaining.Everhart invited participation and input from the board. He can be contacted at Stetson University College of Law, 1401 61st St. South, Gulfport 33707, or via e-mail at September 15, 2002 Regular Newslast_img read more

Lawyers are going wireless

first_imgLawyers are going wireless Lawyers are going wireless ABA survey also finds just over half of firms have policies regarding use of office computers, the Internet, and e-mail The percentage of lawyers using wireless technology to connect to the Internet away from the office has more than doubled since 2003, according to the results of the 2004-2005 ABA Legal Technology Survey.Currently, 19 percent of lawyers surveyed are using wireless technology to access the Internet away from the office, up from 8.3 percent in the previous survey. There has been especially significant growth among solo lawyers, of whom a full 25 percent report using a wireless Internet connection away from the office compared to 8.7 percent in 2003.The survey is a comprehensive look at how the legal profession uses technology. More than 1,500 ABA lawyer members in private practice in the United States returned questionnaires relating to law office technology, litigation and courtroom technology, Web and communication technology, online research, and mobile lawyers. The survey covers issues including technology training, budgeting, and hardware and software purchases, as well as where and how lawyers use technology.Among the results: • Consistent with previous surveys, 98 percent of lawyers who responded to the survey use computers at work; most of those who don’t are age 60 or older, while 100 percent of lawyers up to age 49 do.• Lawyers are becoming progressively more mobile. Eighty-eight percent of those who responded to the survey have Internet access away from the office. Almost a third use cable modems, followed by DSL users and dialup modem users with 24 percent each. Connection from public terminals or kiosks has also seen an increase, from less than 10 percent in 2002 to 19 percent in the current survey.• While anti-virus software availability has remained consistent with past surveys at 92 percent, firewall software availability has risen to nearly 66 percent from 43 percent in 2002, reflecting heightened concerns about hacking and distributed denial of service attacks. Availability of encryption software has increased to 24 percent, but about half of respondents are not using encryption at all. Surprisingly, just slightly more than half of the law firms responding to the survey had policies regarding acceptable use of office computers, Internet, and e-mail. Just over 40 percent had disaster recovery or business continuity plans, despite an increased awareness in the susceptibility of businesses to terrorism and other threats.The legal profession remains document-centric, with word processing software available at 97 percent of law firms, although it’s used personally by only 69 percent of the responding lawyers. Microsoft Word continues as the leading word processor in law firms, in use by 70 percent of respondents, with 28 percent using Corel WordPerfect. Microsoft Excel dominates the spreadsheet market, with 84 percent of respondents citing its availability in their office, trailed by Quattro Pro at 6 percent.The survey is an annual project of the ABA Legal Technology Resource Center, a specialized unit providing lawyers, bar associations, law schools, and other legal organizations with information on technology and its use in the practice of law. The center’s professional staff members research and write on technology issues and provide continuing legal education on practice management using technology.

Boston Marathon Bombing: Long Island Reacts

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York First responders on the scene at The Boston Marathon finish line following a pair of explosions Monday, April 15, 2013 (Courtesy of CBS).Long Island is on high alert after twin bombings Monday at the Boston Marathon left at least three dead—reportedly including an 8-year-old boy—and more than 100 wounded.New York State, city, Nassau and Suffolk county authorities said they are taking extra precautions while federal investigators work with Boston police on the investigation, which is still in its early stages. A number of Long Islanders were among the runners and spectators swept up in the ensuing chaos.“We will be holding a security meeting this Wednesday with subsequent security briefings in the weeks leading up to our Long Island Marathon,” Nassau County Executive Ed Mangano said of the May 3-5 races—just two weeks away. He said Nassau police “is in constant contact with the FBI and the [NYPD].”Suffolk County Police Deputy Chief Kevin Fallon, that department’s chief spokesman, said officers are focusing on Long Island Rail Road stations, malls and sports arenas with backup from bomb-sniffing dogs.“Patrols will include having officers exiting their vehicles and walking through the transportation facilities,” he said. “Police have no reason to believe that a similar incident will occur in Suffolk…but the department is taking precautionary measures.”The two closely timed bombs went off about 50 yards from each other at the Boylston Street finish line shortly before 3 p.m. Police said they later found at least one undetonated explosive devise nearby and that a report of a third explosion at nearby JFK Library preliminarily appears to be an unrelated fire. The FBI has taken over the probe.Rick DesLauriers, FBI Special Agent in Charge of the Boston field office, said authorities are treating the case as a “potential terrorist investigation.” Boston police said that despite widespread news reports to the contrary, there is no suspect in custody.Sal Nastasi, a 33-year-old Massapequa Park man who finished the 26.2-mile race in two hours and 35 minutes, was cheering on a friend at the 24-mile mark when he got word he narrowly avoided the carnage himself.“The course cleared out and people were trying to figure out just what was going on,” Nastasi told CBS Sports Radio. “People were pretty frantic.”Anthony Abbruscato, a 22-year-old North Babylon man who was also cheering on friends who were running the race when the bombs went off, said he was stunned by the attacks.“There was a moment where time seemed to stand still as all of us tried to digest what was happening,” he said. “After the gravity of the situation set in, everyone began to panic and flee from the area. Phone lines were either down or busy, and everyone just felt helpless as they tried to contact friends and loved ones at the event.”The case is a reminder that the public and law enforcement needs to remain vigilant, according to Vincent Henry, director of the Homeland Security Management Institute at Long Island University.“From what we’ve seen it appears to have been an anti-personnel device,” he said. “Something that was designed to harm people and not buildings.”Jeffrey Grossmann, a St. John’s University criminal justice professor in the Homeland and Corporate Security Program, said that the fact that countless cameras were aimed at the finish line could help solve the case.“Anyone with recordings and videotapes of surveillance videos of anything that happened should contact authorities,” he said. “It may play a key role in finding out what happened.”Rep. Peter King (R-Seaford), chairman of the Homeland Security Subcommittee on Counterintelligence & Terrorism, said the attackers will be brought to justice.“Americans will not be deterred by terrorism,” he said. “We will hunt down and bring to justice the cowards responsible for today’s attack.”Boston Police Commissioner Ed Davis echoed the sentiment.“This cowardly act will not be taken in stride,” he told reporters in a Tuesday night news conference. “We will turn every rock over to find the person responsible.”President Barack Obama addressed the nation in a brief televised statement.“We still do not know who did this or why,” he said. “And people shouldn’t jump to conclusions before we have all the facts.  But make no mistake—we will get to the bottom of this. And we will find out who did this; we’ll find out why they did this. Any responsible individuals, any responsible groups will feel the full weight of justice.”last_img read more

Privacy technology helps credit unions build member trust

first_imgData of all sorts is growing at an explosive rate. Billions of gigabytes are generated every day, and it’s getting worse. The sheer amount of it is staggering. Data comes from smart phone apps, the Internet of Things, public websites, social media, smart appliances and more. It’s projected that five years from now, data generation will skyrocket to about 460 billion gigabytes per day!Holy cow, that’s a lot of data! With all that data floating around, individual privacy is at greater risk than ever. Personal concerns are elevated, especially because of frequent news of data breaches and irresponsible security practices. In today’s data-explosive world, it’s crucial for credit union managers like you to pay special attention to how you maintain your members’ data privacy.Your members routinely view your credit union as an organization they can trust to keep their personal financial data secure. They’re inclined to trust you far more than an average business in terms of your commitment to ensure the security of their personal information.This high degree of member trust is a big responsibility. Simply put, you need to reinforce member beliefs that you’re trustworthy, you follow rules and procedures, and you protect the privacy of their personal data.Here are three things you can do to help reinforce this belief among members.Make data transparency a priorityBe open about how you store and use member data. Make it easy for them to change status or remove themselves from a database. It’s all part of a larger effort to show members you’re serious about respectful handling of their personal data.Transfer data power to membersHaving robust privacy technology in place should be a given. But, this by itself will not increase member confidence. It’s better to provide members with control over their personal data through an intuitive portal. Ideally, members should be able to define who it can be shared with. They should be able to see their data and make changes as required. Show your members you’re worthy of greater trustIncreasing member awareness is a great place for you to start. Let them know what you’re doing to protect their data. Right now, thanks to the impacts of COVID-19, it’s especially important to inform members about you how you collect, use, and protect financial data.You deliver a tangible benefit when you reinforce members’ perception that your credit union is a safe, trustworthy institution. Remind them that one of the best data privacy steps to take is a simple and secure digital way for them to positively identify themselves. Digital privacy technology is the keyWhen you adopt sophisticated privacy technology, it shows your members you’re willing to apply current tools to help keep their identity secure and their financial data private. In other words, they’ll see you’re doing all you can to ensure secure authentication and identity accuracy. The privacy technology delivered by MemberPass gives members physical credentials like they already have. Except in this case, no one else can see them, change them or take them away.Learn more about how you can use privacy technology to build greater digital trust between you and your membersContact us to learn more about MemberPass or click here to see MemberPass in action.

Israel orders 14-day self-quarantine for anyone entering country

first_img“This is a difficult decision. But it is essential for safeguarding public health, and public health comes first.”Government officials said the order would come into force immediately for Israelis returning to the country. From Thursday, any non-Israelis seeking to enter the country will have to prove they have the means to self-quarantine, the officials said.Israeli media said the latest measure would mean quarantine for some 300,000 citizens in a country of around 9 million.Palestinians in the Israeli-occupied West Bank have also been hit by the virus, reporting 25 confirmed cases. The Palestinian Authority (PA) has turned foreigners away at checkpoints and ordered schools and national parks closed. Israel will require anyone arriving from overseas to self-quarantine for 14 days as a precaution against the spread of coronavirus, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday.With 42 confirmed cases of the virus, Israel has already taken some tough counter-measures, forcing visitors from many countries in Asia and Europe into home isolation. The virus has hit travel and trade, with tourism in particular expected to suffer.”Anyone who arrives in Israel from abroad will enter a 14-day isolation,” Netanyahu said in a video statement. He said the new measures would be in effect for two weeks initially. The PA said on Monday it was barring Palestinians from travelling to neighboring Jordan through the Israeli-controlled Allenby Bridge crossing, with immediate effect. Foreigners would still be allowed to leave and all entries allowed, the PA said.Israeli officials had no immediate comment on the Allenby measures.Uncertainty in Israel about the impact of the new measures hit Tel Aviv’s blue-chip stock index and the broader TA-125 which were both down around 6.5%.The shekel, which peaked against the dollar in mid-February at 3.416, was trading at about 3.5 on Monday.Israel’s central bank has said it did not expect a major economic impact if the virus was halted in the coming months, but that it was ready to use monetary policy tools “whenever necessary” should conditions worsen.Netanyahu invited the media on Monday to a video conference he held with leaders of Italy, Austria, Hungary, Bulgaria, Romania, Croatia and Cyprus to discuss cooperation on the crisis. Among his proposals was to regularly disinfect select airports in Europe to help preserve international deliveries of supplies.Israeli public broadcaster Kan said the quarantine restrictions were even affecting the country’s intelligence service. Kan said, without citing sources, that returning Mossad operatives had been ordered to stay at home for two weeks.Thirteen Americans were heading home from the Holy Land on Monday after they were cleared in a coronavirus scare, the mayor of the Palestinian town where they had been quarantined said.The group, from the 3Circle Church in Fairhope, Alabama, was placed in quarantine at the Angel Hotel in Beit Jala on Wednesday after several hotel staff there tested positive.Topics :last_img read more
