The letter contends that DoJ’s efforts to strike major settlements with banks stands in marked contrast to the Department’s litigation strategy in other contexts.JPMorgan’s historic $13 billion agreement last year and Citi’s $7 billion settlement announced earlier this month have prompted questions from the committee as to whether settling with the banks was the most prudent course of action and if there was any sort of favoritism shown in the settlement process. The Attorney General has in the past shown a willingness to pursue penalties against institutions that break the law in court, where the penalty is likely to be more severe, rather than settle for less.Even as past settlements came under fire the federal government announced that it had come to terms on another. Morgan Stanley agreed to pay back $275 million to investors whom the Securities and Exchange Commission say were misled by a pair of mortgage bonds the company marketed during the financial crisis. According to the SEC, three entities of Morgan Stanley misrepresented their delinquency status regarding mortgage loans in the subprime market in 2007. Federal regulations require the disclosure of delinquency information for the mortgage loans serving as collateral.

The matter before the Court The appellant (claiming to be adoptive mother) preferred the writ petition seeking custody of the female child, from the respondent No.4 (the natural mother of the child). The appellant submitted that she had taken the child after execution of a deed of adoption which was executed by the respondent No.4 in favour of the appellant and, thereafter the child was given to the custody of the appellant by the respondent No.4. It is argued that the child was taken by the respondent No.4 from the appellant on the pretext of playing with child but thereafter the child was never returned to the appellant. Therefore, a writ of habeas corpus ought to be issued to restore the custody back to the petitioner, who is her adoptive mother. Court’s observations Considering that the natural mother of the Child disputed the genuineness of the adoption deed, the Court remarked “The dispute of this nature cannot be entertained in writ jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution of India for issuance of a writ of habeas corpus to hand over the custody of the child to the petitioner.” Importantly, the Court said, “The petition was filed by someone who claims to be adoptive mother seeking custody from the respondent No.4, who is none other than the natural mother of the child and is disputing the genuineness of the adoption deed. Writ of habeas corpus in a case involving such disputed questions of fact cannot be issued against natural mother.” Lastly, the Court opined that in view of the aforesaid, the disputed questions of fact cannot be adjudicated in writ jurisdiction under Article 226 of the Constitution of India. Therefore, the Court did not perceive any illegality or perversity in the impugned order passed by the Single Judge, warranting any interference in this intra-Court appeal. Accordingly, the writ appeal was found to be devoid of merit and was thus, dismissed. It may be noted that the Madhya Pradesh High Court had, last year, allowed a habeas corpus petition, which in effect pertained to the custody of a 2 year old boy, holding US citizenship. The writ was filed by the mother of a 2 year old boy- born in and a citizen of the United States. Significantly, the Petitioner’s husband had obtained an ex-parte restraint order against her from an American Court, forcing her to move out of her matrimonial house and return to her parents’ home in Indore, India. Thereafter, the Petitioner’s husband left their son at his parents’ (the child’s grandparents’) house in Gwalior, and executed a Power of Attorney and Authorization in the favour of his parents, to look after the child. The Petitioner had accordingly moved the High Court, seeking custody of her child. Case title – Sanjana Soviya v. State of Madhya Pradesh & others [W.A.

Nothing is being shared. This is a call for media attention,” the SG told the Bench.Senior Advocate Amit Sibal appearing for Ravi insisted that it is the Delhi Police which leaked confidential information of the criminal case to the media.”They can say whatever, but the facts speak otherwise. She was arrested on 13th, and material was seized by police… Media itself says that they have got records from police, how are they accessing these records?” Sibal submitted.He added,”This is a most unfortunate case where the media, in order to gain a few thousand TRPs, is trampling over the rights of the citizens.A 22 year old has been arrested, and it’s being called a call for media attention?”In her plea, Ravi had also sought action against India Today, Times Now and News 18 for violative reporting in the Toolkit Case by allegedly running “one-sided” reports. The High Court has issued notice to NBSA, TimesNow and News18. India Today was represented in the Court.Claiming that media houses, including Times Now, India Today and News 18 have published “one-sided defamatory, suggestive innuendos, and half-truths” about her in the Toolkit case, 22-year-old environment activist Disha Ravi who was arrested and sent for 5 days remand on allegations of involvement in the case earlier today had moved the Delhi High Court seeking to restrain Delhi Police from leaking any investigation material relating to the case filed against her by the PS Special Cell, including alleged contents of private chats/communication by her to any third party, including the media.The plea filed by Ravi sought directions to the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting seeking to take appropriate action against Times Now, India Today and News 18, and all other satellite TV channels allegedly reporting on the case in a manner which infringes Ravi’s right to privacy, and is “grossly violative of her right to a fair trial and presumption of innocence.” Ravi submitted that the illegal actions and omissions on part of the news channels has irrevocably violated her fundamental right to privacy, her right to reputation, her dignity, and the consequent effect of the administration of justice and right to fair trial – all guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution. She had therefore moved court seeking directions to restrain the channels from publishing such “visceral” content, including extracts of any alleged private chats (including WhatsApp chats) between her and third parties.Ravi’s writ petition specifically alleges that the Delhi State government, acting through the Station House Officer, Special Cell (SB), Delhi Police, “leaked investigative material” by way of her alleged “WhatsApp chats, the substance and details of which were only in the possession of the Investigating Agency.” The petition states that the 22-year old’s mobile phone and laptop were seized by the police on Feb 13 at around 11 am, after which the same have not been accessed by her at all. As such, only the police had access to the contents of Ravi’s private conversations and “any leaks of the same necessarily constitutes the commission of a cognizable offence and is a violation of her dignity, reputation, and fundamental right to privacy, guaranteed under Article 21 of the Constitution.”Referring to the leakage of Whatsapp chats between Disha Ravi and Swedish activist Greta Thunberg, the petition states that the further publication and dissemination of the private alleged WhatsApp chats by various media houses, including Times Now, News 18 and India Today, “is a clear violation of the provisions of the Cable Sections the Cable Televisions Networks (Regulation) Act, 1995 (CTN Act), the Programme Code and the Uplinking and Downlinking Guidelines.” Infact, the petition alleged that India Today had gone so far as to brazenly publicise that “India Today TV has accessed WhatsApp chats between Greta Thunberg and Disha Ravi” after the Swedish climate activist uploaded the original toolkit in support of the ongoing farmer protests but deleted it later, saying it was ‘outdated”. The channel then went on to showcase excerpts titled “WhatsApp Chat between Greta Thunberg, Disha Ravi”.Calling out the Delhi Police for tweets from the official handle of the department on Twitter, wherein it was stated that Ravi was a “key conspirator in the document (toolkit’s) formulation & dissemination. She started WhatsApp Group & collaborated to make the Toolkit doc. She worked closely with them to draft the Doc”; and that she had “collaborated with pro Khalistani Poetic Justice Foundation to spread disaffection against the Indian State”, the writ states that such tweets constitute an opinionated and judgmental statement and significantly impinge on the accused person’s right to privacy and fair trial, and are in violation of the Ministry of Home Affairs Office Memorandum dated 01.04.2010, issuing an “Advisory on Media Policy of Police”, as they outrightly prejudge Ravi’s guilt and “disclose confidential and prejudicial information about the status of investigation.”Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.

  • Legacy of eclectic Ithacan will live on at three local organizations

    first_img When the museum shut its doors nearly 20 years ago, its board deaccessioned artifacts and sold the property. Some items went to The History Center, while others were archived as “Henry N. Hickley Local History Ephemera, 1823-1976” within the Cornell University Library’s Division of Rare Manuscript Collections. The proceeds from the museum’s sales sat idle until this month, when they were formally distributed to three organizations committed to honoring Hinckley’s legacy.Rod Howe, Joan Heffernan, Lucia Sacco and Susan Holland celebrate the Hinckley Museum Foundation awards on March 22, 2019. (Provided photo)The History Center received $114,000 from the Hinckley Museum Foundation, while Historic Ithaca and Lifelong each received about $40,000.Rod Howe, executive director of The History Center in Tompkins County, said the donation “will be used for helping to carry forward Henry Hinckley’s legacy through exhibits, lectures, tours and events in partnership with Lifelong and Historic Ithaca,” adding that funds will also go toward the center’s relocation, operating costs and endowment.Items from the Hinckley collection will be on display at the new Tompkins Center for History and Culture at 110 N. Tioga St. in Ithaca.Lucia Sacco, executive director at Lifelong, said she is looking forward to working with the partner organizations to develop programming related to Hinckley, which could include lectures, classes or even an architectural tour. “We’re excited about all the opportunities this will generate,” she said.Holland echoed that sentiment, saying she’s excited to explore Hinckley’s varied interests at Historic Ithaca. Noting the organization’s prior work to preserve the State Theatre, she said she has a sketch in her office of the building’s original plans with Hinckley’s signature scrawled in the corner. “I’m fascinated by him,” Holland said.The three organizations accepted the foundation’s gifts at an event on March 22 and expressed gratitude for the work and generosity of the foundation board, led by Joan Heffernan. The date for a fall lecture on Hinckley’s legacy will be announced in the coming months, along with additional programming.Featured image: A portrait of Henry Hinckley by Christian Midjo, provided by The History Center. Your Arts & Culture news is made possible with support from: ITHACA, N.Y. – Henry Hinckley isn’t exactly a household name, but anyone who’s wandered around Ithaca has seen his traces. The State Theatre building, formerly the Security Garage and Car Dealership, was designed by Hinckley in 1915. He worked as an architect for the Thomas Morse Aircraft Corporation, a signal operator for the Air Force, a city building commissioner, property manager and investment banker.“He pops up where you don’t expect him,” said Susan Holland, executive director of Historic Ithaca.Soon, Ithacans will have more opportunities to engage with Hinckley’s legacy. Funds from his estate will support exhibits and events at Historic Ithaca, The History Center in Tompkins County and Lifelong.Hinckley, who was born in Trumansburg in 1888 and moved to Ithaca with his family before attending Cornell to study architecture, was a consummate collector of antiquities and Americana.Early American decorative arts made up the heart of his collection, Holland said, but he had eclectic taste. Archives of his holdings at Cornell include five dollars in Democratic Wild Cat money (1892), a “Choo Choo Trains” children’s book (1927) and practical hints on football (1891).When Hinckley died in 1969, his will established the Hinckley Museum Foundation, stating, “The main purpose and object of the said corporation shall be the foundation, operation and maintenance of a museum, for the education and enlightenment of present and future generations.”The museum opened at his home on 410 E. Seneca St, in a building that had once been the carriage house behind his family’s larger 409 E. Buffalo St. residence before they lost the house during the Depression. Visitors and architectural students could explore items from his collection in the small museum until 2000.

  • Sex bias ruling goes in favour of employers

    first_img Previous Article Next Article Related posts:No related photos. Comments are closed. Relief for employers and the tribunal service came last week when a House ofLords ruling cancelled out an estimated 3,000 claims for sex discrimination.The cases have all been adjourned pending the final outcome of the long-runningSeymour-Smith and Perez case. This tested the two-year service period required to qualify for protectionfrom unfair dismissal.The claimants argued that the cut-off point, since reduced to one year,represented indirect sexual discrimination against women because men work forlonger periods.But in a final judgement the Lords ruled that the statistics did notconvincingly bear this out, and that it is justifiable for the Government tohave a service requirement so as to encourage recruitment.

  • Oregon replaces Washington in Pac-12 championship

    first_img Written by December 14, 2020 /Sports News – National Oregon replaces Washington in Pac-12 championship FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailEzra Shaw/Getty ImagesBY: LEIGHTON SCHNEIDER, ABC NEWS(NEW YORK) — Oregon is replacing Washington in the Pac-12 championship game against USC, the conference announced on Monday. The Pac-12 Championship game will be played on Friday at the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles. Washington would have been under the 53-player minimum threshold because of positive coronavirus tests and isolation of players due to contact tracing. Washington had its last game cancelled against Oregon for the same reason. “Our goal every season is to win the Pac-12 Championship. I am so proud of the work our team and staff have put in to position ourselves to attain that goal,” said head coach Jimmy Lake in a statement. “Unfortunately, the virus is in our footprint. We have not been able to resume football activities and currently the entirety of one of our key position groups, deemed a critical position group by the Pac-12, is in quarantine. There is no path forward to practice or play this week. Our focus now is getting everyone healthy so we can resume football activities and prepare for a possible bowl game. We are crushed that we cannot bring home the Pac-12 trophy for our fans, staff and players.”Oregon, 3-2, finished with the second best record in the Pac-12 North division. USC, 5-0, finished first in the Pac-12 South division. The Ducks were scheduled to play Colorado this weekend. It is unclear if Colorado will have a new opponent. Oregon is the reigning Pac-12 champions having beat Utah 37-15 last year. Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio.

  • JCRs cast a line for sustainable fish

    first_imgJCRs throughout Oxford have been calling for colleges to switch to sustainable fish as part of a major environmental campaign.Five colleges have already passed a motion mandating a member of the JCR to request that the college not serve unsustainably caught or endangered fish, and replace them with more sustainably caught species. Worcester, who voted to switch fish sources last term, were recently followed by Magdalen, Regents Park, St John’s and St Hugh’s.Hector Guinness, a Zoology student at Worcester, who has been helping to lead the campaign through the Oxford Environment Group said, “The aim is to have all college kitchens agree to stop serving fish from unsustainable sources by the end of this year.”A fact sheet accompanying the motion by Marica Haig, Worcester’s Environment representative and OUSU Biodiversity representative explains that fishing levels are currently at less than 1% of their 1977 levels. “The over exploitation of our oceans will mean that within our lifetimes the ecology of all seas will have shifted so dramatically that no edible fish species will survive to be of use to humans ever again,” she said.“We have two options – we could ‘hurry while stocks last’, and eat all we can while there are any left, or choose the sustainable future, and demand that kitchens in Oxford are not driving demand for unsustainably caught fish, and send a clear message that we want sustainably harvested fish, or no fish at all,” Haig continued.The proposal added that current over-exploitation does not mean that colleges will never be able to serve fish again. “The sea is a valuable natural resource that can provide some of our dietary requirements if it is harvested in an appropriate way using modern sustainable techniques.”The motion passed with little opposition from the Worcester JCR, despite concerns over the increased cost of buying sustainable fish. Haig explained that this had caused some objections from the Catering Manager. “He thought using sustainably sourced seafood would cause an increase in the cost of the meals which members of all the common rooms would object too, especially the SCR who are served cod and swordfish relatively frequently.”“However the college Dean fully supported the motion and encouraged me to talk directly to the Provost, who agreed that the SCR could live without these fish, and gave his support for the policy. Since then the Catering Manager has been looking into alternative species or sources, and any unsustainably sourced fish have been removed from the menu,” she said.Guinness recognised that the change may involve more effort from kitchen staff. “Some chefs seem to be worried about things getting more complicated for them, which is why the motion is phrased negatively rather than asking for specific alternatives,” he said.Haig has passed the motion and fact sheet on to Environment representatives across the University in the hope that more colleges will implement it. She said, “we are aiming to get as many colleges as possible to pass this motion as it is an important cause which could greatly benefit simply by raising awareness so that people start to think about where the fish they buy came from.”Regent’s Park passed the motion two weeks ago. Emmeline Smart, a third year Geographer and the JCR Environment representative said, “the motion was passed with only one person against and has been widely supported by members of Regent’s Park. Our kitchen staff have been very supportive and have changed the types of fish we use in college- they argue that they only used unsustainable fish before because students were unwilling to try different fish.”She encourages other colleges to do the same, saying, “This just shows how easy it is to raise awareness and make a difference on this issue.”College authorities at St John’s have also been enthusiastic to adopt the changes, and motions have been passed in both the JCR and MCR. The Catering Manager and Dean support the idea and are trying instigate changes in the SCR. Guinness said, “monkfish and swordfish have been taken off the list of choices for the guest dinners and the catering manager has a ‘good fish guide’ to follow when buying for hall generally.”Magdalen JCR has also passed the motion with no opposition. Environment and Ethics representative Jenny Chapman explained that she hoped the Hall Manager would not reject the initiative due to problems of expense. “There is no reason why it should be more expensive, it would just mean that our fish would come from elsewhere,” she said.he journal ‘Science’ has suggested that, if current trends continue, there will be a total marine collapse by 2050, with a loss of 90% of each species.last_img read more
