On having a bad day.

Fri, 16 Mar 2018 02:02:14 +0000

No. 1,441 Today we commemorate the 2,067th anniversary of when Julius Caesar had a very bad day. We all have them.  Lawyers, who engage in a very competitive environment, perhaps have more than their share. Yesterday, one of the greatest minds of our time passed into eternity. In one sense, he had been having a […]

Rites of Spring: Daylight Savings Time and banishing Winter.

Sat, 10 Mar 2018 17:02:31 +0000

No. 1,440 Although the pond may still be frozen solid, Daylight Savings promises it won’t stay that way too long. We live in the Age of Reason, a time when we no longer believe in superstitious practices.  But we follow plenty of them anyway because they are still part of us. Sometimes we ignore the […]

Is a new Act 6 or Act 91 Notice required when a second mortgage foreclosure is commenced?

Sat, 10 Mar 2018 16:01:02 +0000

No. 1,439 This issue was addressed in Wells Fargo Bank v. Spivak, 104 A.3d, 7 (2014) where there had been a voluntary discontinuance followed by the filing of a new case, without re-sending of the Act 6 Notice. The Superior Court apparently distinguished the facts in Spivak in a non-precidential decision in J. C. Morgan […]

FAMILY LAW: Parental responsibility and the risk of football concussions.

Fri, 09 Mar 2018 10:43:40 +0000

No. 1,435 The New York Times ran an article recently focusing on a custody dispute involving a divorced Upper St. Clair couple with a family law issue that is becoming increasingly common. Their son played high school football and had experienced concussion-like symptoms, but had eventually been cleared by a doctor to play. His father, […]

Rules, rules, rules.

No. 1,434 I just heard a doctor on the radio who contracted Lymes Disease and after being wheelchair bound and in excruciating pain for a year and a half, effected a cure, partly through experimenting with herbal medicines.  He says that we have a Lymes pandemic in semi rural locations in Western Pennsylvania and that […]

On the Wings of an Albatross

Sat, 03 Mar 2018 12:44:53 +0000

No. 1,433 I thought they were extinct, easy prey for rapacious Europeans who colonized much of the World in the 18th and 19th Centuries.  Although some breeds of albatross are in danger, they are disbursed over most of the Southern Hemisphere and parts of the Northern Pacific. It appears, from Wikipedia, that most of what […]

Do you know who is listed in the Guinness Book World of Records as the world’s most successful lawyer? Don’t even try to guess.

Fri, 02 Mar 2018 01:42:15 +0000

No. 1,432 Yes, Guinness really did designate such a lawyer and his name is Lionel Luckhoo. No kidding. Between 1940 and 1985, Barrister Luckhoo successfully defended 245 homicide cases in a row. A few of them had to be won on appeal. He practiced mostly in his native Guyana and in England. Think of that. […]
