In reality is there is very little material to guide an insurance law attorney specializing in fraud investigation along the correct pathway of ethical considerations. Though times have changed, insurance fraud law practitioners universally confront the same ethical dilemmas and with sparse guidance. These dilemmas manifest themselves in various contexts including claim analysis, dealing with unrepresented parties, examinations under oath and rendering opinions to insurance carriers.
Courts award summary judgment to a party when there is no genuine dispute of material fact and the moving party is entitled to judgment in its favor as a matter of law. What if two experts have conflicting opinions about a material fact? Can summary judgment be awarded? That question, among others, was taken up by the Second Circuit in Dalberth v. Xerox Corp., 2014 WL 4390695 (2d Cir. Sept. 8, 2014), a decision in a long-running securities fraud litigation.
Millions of children participate in programs operated by daycare centers, nursery schools, and camps across the United States and Canada. The most important aspect of childcare is the safety and supervision of children. When a teacher, recreation leader, camp counselor, or other supervisor is engaged in activities involving young children, there is a duty to protect the child from physical harm, sexual abuse, and other forms of personal injury. A breach of duty to protect the health, safety, and welfare of a child that leads to injury may result in daycare negligence lawsuits.
Last month's issue of the Goldhaber Warnings Report focused on the dangers of added sugar to many products sold in the U.S. But sugar, while a major culprit in the causal chain leading to a variety of serious illnesses such as Type 2 Diabetes and other cardio-vascular diseases and certain cancers, is not the only food product that may need a safety warning.

Perhaps 25% of the cases I handle involve the authorship of anonymous, disputed, or forged documents. The client wants to know who's writing those nasty, threatening emails or letters. I typically ask the client for writing samples from the suspected author. Sometimes there's more than one suspect, and I have to decide which of them may be the author of the anonymous document(s).
Many banks need to add new board members because some are reaching a mandatory retirement age or because others who agreed to stay through the financial crisis now want to rotate off the board. Banks need to keep in mind that they will be under close scrutiny by any prospective candidate who will be conducting due diligence on the bank at the same time the bank is conducting due diligence on the candidate. In order to ensure your bank can attract top candidates for board positions, consider the following before beginning the recruiting process:
I have often wondered why attorneys wait so long to contact someone like me to render opinions on their dental malpractice cases. By the time I have been contacted, those things deemed important to achieve success for their clients from a legal perspective have long been established and I am brought in to provide the support for their conclusions. While I have been successful in supporting most of the conclusions established, there have been discussions of what might have been if I had been brought in sooner.
Chances are, it's happened to you. An unexpected period of cold weather occurs and temperatures drop well below freezing for an extended period of time. One morning you attempt to turn the water on in the kitchen sink and...nothing. Hot water? Nope. Cold water? Nope. What happened? Did you forget to pay the water bill...again?
