May 15, 2004 Regular News Briefs Shepherd named D’Alemberte professor Florida State University College of Law Professor Lois Shepherd has been appointed the D’Alemberte Professor of Law. The D’Alemberte Professorship was donated to the law school by the Miami-based Steel Hector & Davis. It was named for Sandy D’Alemberte, a former partner in the firm who served as dean of the law school from 1984-1989, and as president of the university from 1993-2003.“Steel Hector & Davis is committed to the Florida State University College of Law and the success of its outstanding students,” said Joseph Klock, the firm’s managing partner. “Several of the firm’s partners and associates are graduates. We are delighted that this endowment was awarded to Lois.”Shepherd, an associate professor, teaches contracts, professional responsibility and bioethics, and the law. Her upcoming book, titled The Bioethics and Law Casebook, is being published by the Aspen Press. Little wins civil liberties award Cheryl Little, executive director of the Miami-based Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center, will be presented with the 2004 Nelson Poynter Civil Liberties Award for her “outstanding commitment to preserving individual rights and liberties” at the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation of Florida’s 25th Annual Nelson Poynter Civil Liberties Award Dinner.Little has dedicated nearly 20 years to protecting immigrants, especially Haitians, from arbitrary treatment by government.The event will begin at 8 p.m., preceded by an open bar cocktail and hors d’oeuvres reception at 6:30 p.m., May 22, at the Hyatt Regency Coral Gables, 50 Alhambra Plaza, in Coral Gables.Michael Putney, senior political reporter for WPLG Channel 10, and contributing columnist for The Miami Herald, will serve as master of ceremonies.Little has challenged the detention of hundreds of Haitian asylum-seekers at the Krome Detention Center, arguing government policies discriminate against Haitians based on race and national origin. She also opposed a Justice Department plan to give local and state police the power to enforce immigration laws in the wake of September 11.In 1996, Congress prohibited the federally-funded Legal Services Corporation from assisting undocumented aliens. That same year, Little started the Florida Immigrant Advocacy Center on a few hundred thousand dollars in grants and with a small staff. They inherited 3,000 cases, mostly Hispanic clients. FIAC has since grown to four offices, 18 attorneys, 17 paralegals, a $2.3 million budget, and more than 30,000 cases closed.The featured speaker at the dinner will be Barry Steinhardt, director of the National ACLU’s Program on Technology and Liberty. He will discuss the ACLU’s fight against government and private sector data-mining programs such as the MATRIX, a database surveillance system originating in Florida that creates dossiers about individuals from government databases and private-sector companies that compile files on Americans for profit.

Florida lawyers, statewide and national bar associations, and community and judicial groups participated in a variety of activities to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the U. S. Supreme Court’s decision in Brown v. Board of Education during Law Week.Activities, ranging from speaking engagements at local schools to mock trial competitions, commemorated the significance of the decision that desegregated public schools.This year’s national theme is “To Win Equality Law: Brown v. Board of Education at 50.”“This case changed our nation. It reinforces the constitutional right that all people are equally protected under the law regardless of race, “ said Harold N. Hume, chair of the Bar’s Voluntary Bar Liaison Committee and statewide Law Week chair. “Law Week gives us an opportunity to share with our communities our commitment to the rule of law and our commitment to a fair and impartial system of justice.”This year marks the 46th annual nationwide observance of Law Day. In 1961, May 1 was designated by joint resolution of Congress as the official day to celebrate Law Day. In 1998, the Florida Legislature established the annual commemoration as an official day and designated week.“On Law Day, I think our nation can reflect on and consider how we might as a country and how we might as a people appreciate the contributions that ethnic minorities have made to (the) world and American civilization,” said ABA President Dennis W. Archer, in an interview discussing the impact of Brown v. Board of Education. Students tour courthouse Fifth-grade students toured the George Edgecomb Courthouse to begin the traditional kick-off of the Courthouse Tours during Law Week.Lawyers from the Hillsborough County Bar Association show the student the highlights of their professional arena. After observing court proceedings and walking through the halls of justice, the students gathered in Courtroom 1 each morning during the week at 11:15 a.m. to talk with judges and watch a short video, Who is Linda Brown?, which provides some clues as to why their present day classrooms look like they do. To Win Equality by Law: Brown v Board at 50 is the theme selected by the AB A for Law Week this year because of the historic anniversary of this legal decision. In the Brown v Board of Education case, the court struck down laws segregating public schools — because they recognized the need to fulfill the promise of the Constitution to a little girl named Linda Brown and other students like her. Edgecomb Bar celebrates Brown , awards scholarships The George Edgecomb Bar Association recently hosted its 21st Annual Law Week Scholarship Banquet in Tampa.To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education an exhibit on the landmark case — on loan from the City of Tampa — was displayed at a reception before the banquet. GEBA also recognized the local school desegregation case, Manning v. Hillsborough County School Board, by acknowledging the families of the four plaintiffs of the case. Judge Elizabeth Kovachevich, who was involved in the case, was awarded the Francisco Rodriguez Award in recognition of her leadership in the federal bar and her excellence as a jurist.Florida Bar President Miles McGrane, along with presidents of Virgil Hawkins Florida Chapter of the National Bar Association, the Hillsborough County Bar Association, and the Hillsborough Association for Women Lawyers were in attendance.This year’s keynote speaker was Alison Bethel, the Washington bureau chief of The Detroit News. GEBA also awarded three scholarships to Tampa high school students. GEBA’s premiere scholarship is co-sponsored by the Hillsborough Education Foundation and provides four years of tuition at a Florida university. This year’s recipient of the scholarship is KeJuan R. Nedd, a freshman at King High School, where he has a GPA of 3.40. KeJuan plans to attend the University of South Florida and desires to become an astronomer.GEBA also awarded two $1,000 scholarships to Vincent E. Adejumo and Kristen S. Pinder. Adejumo is a senior at Middleton High School who plans to attend Florida State University this fall and major in computer science and then go to law school. ystems. Pinder is a senior at King High School and plans to go to the University of Florida this fall and major in veterinarian science. Gift to Florida State will foster mentoring Possessing the power to recommend sentencing for defendants can be daunting for a prosecutor right out of law school. But as an assistant state attorney in Duval County in the early 1980s, Michael Atter could turn to a long-time friend and seasoned attorney to help him gain a fresh perspective on tough cases.“When you’re a young attorney, you don’t have the real-life experience to flesh out what should be done in certain circumstances, so it’s helpful to have someone help you analyze the situation,” said Atter, a 1979 graduate of the Florida State University College of Law, and now a partner in the Jacksonville firm of Wood, Atter & Associates. His daughter, Lenorae Atter, is a 2003 graduate of the law school and works in his firm.Atter is hopeful that because of his recent $100,000 gift to the law school, students will have the opportunity to find the type of mentoring that helped him. The Atter Family Mentoring Scholarship will provide a summer stipend for students to be mentored by distinguished litigators in the Jacksonville area.Atter said he formed the idea for the mentoring scholarship after judging mock trial competitions involving Florida State law students.“I was impressed with their preparation, how they presented themselves, their verbal and nonverbal skills, and their well-thought-out arguments,” he said. “Students who have developed those skills will be invaluable to a law firm. But when you argue aggressively for a client, it can be easy to fall into the trap of forgetting about professional courtesy. The manner in which you go about doing your job doesn’t have to be offensive. That does a disservice to the attorney and to the law profession as a whole.” Caribbean Bar launches Central Florida chapter The Caribbean Bar Association recently launched its first chapter in Central Florida at the Marriott International Hotel in Orlando.Under the auspices of the consul generals from Jamaica, St. Lucia, and Trinidad and Tobago, and other local Caribbean-American organizations in the Central Florida area, the launching reception welcomed over 100 local businesses, community leaders, and members of the bench and bar.“Due to the growing Caribbean-American community in the Central Florida area, including Orange, Seminole, Volusia, and other counties, local attorneys of Caribbean descent in the area sensed the need to duplicate some of the similar efforts, initiatives, and successes in South Florida,” said Dahlia A. Walker, president of the Caribbean Bar Association.The interim executive board of the Central Florida chapter includes Michelle Tomlinson, president; Yolanda Lewis, vice president; and Dennis Chen, secretary/treasurer.The weekend’s activities also included a citizenship and voters’ registration drive at the Metro-West Church of the Nazarene in Orlando. Over 60 persons and families attended and completed their naturalization applications with the assistance of volunteer attorneys from the Caribbean Bar Association.For more information visit www.caribbeanbar.org. Mediators hold canned food drive At The Florida Academy of Professional Mediators’ Annual Education Conference in Orlando, the academy’s Community Involvement Committee held its first canned food drive.Members attending the conference were asked to donate at least one can of food for the needy, and they generously responded, said Bruce A. Blitman, chair of the Community Involvement Committee.The food was collected by the Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida. The food drive collected approximately 100 pounds of food, which will provide about 70 meals to hungry men, women, and children. This food will be distributed to nonprofit agencies serving those in need in Central Florida.As a result of the success of this initial food drive, the academy will sponsor another food drive in conjunction with the Florida Dispute Resolution Center’s Annual Mediation and Arbitration Conference in Orlando in late August. Seminar attendees will again be invited to donate at least one can of food when they come to the DRC conference. People who do not have time to shop or do not want to pack non-perishable food when they travel are encouraged to contribute with a tax-deductible financial gift.For more information about the academy’s food drive, contact Blitman at (954) 437-3446 or e-mail [email protected] Fowler White, Ernst & Young collect clothes Fowler White Boggs Banker and Ernst & Young pooled their resources to team up for the Dress for Success clothing drive in April and collected more than 150 business suits and dresses and more than 300 skirts, blouses, and slacks for the nonprofit organization.Dress for Success provides interview suits, confidence boosts, and career development to low-income women entering the workforce.

NASA honors LeConey Miami native Amy Voigt LeConey has gone from being a hostess at the old General Cinema 10 at Miracle Center to being named by NASA’s legal program as the first recipient of the Rising Star Award for her support during the Columbia investigation activities and her role in a land transfer project.The 28-year-old Florida State University trained lawyer was presented with the award, which recognizes the best of NASA’s junior attorneys, at an April 27 conference at NASA’s Stennis Space Center in Mississippi.With less than 24 hours notice after the accident that claimed Columbia and her seven-member crew, she was sent to Barksdale Air Force Base field operations site in Louisiana to be the legal liaison to NASA’s Mishap Investigation Team.In the four weeks that she was there, LeConey worked on establishing jurisdiction over crew remains, handling financial and interagency coordination issues with the Federal Emergency Management Administration covering search and recovery issues in 29 states, coordinating a Department of Justice site visit to Barksdale, and overseeing data handling and impoundment procedures at Barksdale, Lufkin, Texas, and Carswell, disaster field offices.“Amy’s amazing success in providing sophisticated legal support to the huge and complex search and recovery effort was no fluke,” said Paul Pastorek, NASA’s General Counsel. “She made a presentation to the firm on an impending major environmental and real estate matter a couple of years ago that knocked everyone’s socks off. We’re fortunate to have her, and a group of other young lawyers just like her. They’re really excited about NASA and its mission. I hope they’re all still around, serving as our legal leadership when we land on Mars.” Smith lauded by law enforcement Eleventh Circuit Assistant State Attorney Michael Smith of the office’s organized crime division has been awarded the 2003 Law Enforcement Officer’s Foundation and the Dade County Chiefs of Police Law Enforcement Officer’s Award for State Prosecutor of the Year.This award was presented, not just for Smith’s “outstanding prosecutorial abilities” in the fields of money laundering and electronic surveillance, but also in recognition of his “commitment to achieving justice in every one of his cases.” Baker & Hostetler works with school The Orlando office of Baker & Hostetler celebrated its 25th anniversary by donating $25,000 to Orange Center Elementary School, as part of the Baker’s Educational Service Team program.“Baker & Hostetler has been our partner in education since 2001, they have made and continue to make outstanding contributions to our school, both in financial and volunteer support — they have truly made a difference to our students, our teachers, and our staff,” said Cynthia Drayton, principal of Orange Center.

Such collaboration could bring about a more creative solution than simply selling the entire loan portfolio to a single investor at a significant loss,” the letter reads. “While such a sale may be the quickest and easiest approach for the agency, it is not in the best interest of credit unions and their members, including borrowers who took out loans to obtain taxi medallions.”The signatories–CUNA, the CrossState Credit Union Association, the Illinois Credit Union League, and the New York Credit Union Association–urged NCUA to refrain from selling its entire taxi medallion loan portfolio to for-profit debt buyers for several reasons:Selling to a single investor, while quickest and easiest for the agency, would almost certainly result in a lower sale price, which would have a direct impact on the Share Insurance Fund;
The Bank of Thailand left its benchmark interest rate unchanged after an emergency cut last week, while projecting the worst contraction in the economy since the Asian financial crisis more than two decades ago.The bank slashed its growth forecast for this year, now expecting the economy to shrink 5.3 percent compared with an earlier estimate of 2.8 percent expansion. Exports and tourism, the key drivers of Thailand’s economy, have both been hard hit as the coronavirus outbreak spreads around the world.The policy rate was maintained at a record low 0.75 percent Wednesday following a 25 basis-point reduction at an unscheduled meeting March 20. Four of the seven monetary policy committee members voted to hold, two called for a cut and one wasn’t able to attend. “We believe they can cut by another 25 basis points. They could have used all the space they have now,” said Burin Adulwattana, chief economist at Bangkok Bank Pcl. “The economy is on the brink of a recession with huge downside risk, so it’s time to do all they can.”Bank of Thailand Assistant Governor Titanun Mallikamas said Wednesday that policy makers stand ready to lower rates further if needed and will keep a close watch on markets, including the baht exchange rate. In a statement delivered through the Bank of Thailand’s Facebook page due to social-distancing precautions, he said the economy would recover only next year.The benchmark SET Index extended gains after the decision, surging 6.3 percent to 1,099.32 as of 3:32 p.m. in Bangkok. The baht fell 0.3 percent against the dollar, paring an earlier loss of as much as 0.5 percent.Topics :
