Perhaps there would be accountability if Anonymous were to nvestigate my child's death too since no one has been held responsible and here we are 6 years, 4 months and 13 days later. :( http://justice.alberta.ca/programs_services/fatality/Documents/fatality-report-Martin.pdf

Michael Jackson's kids face brutal court grilling on his sex life

Michael Jackson's kids face brutal court grilling on his sex life | children aid society | Scoop.it

Lawyers fear a judge’s decision to ban TV cameras from an LA Superior Court hearing will harm the family’s £31billion civil suit.

Michael Jackson’s children face a brutal grilling about his sex life and eccentric behaviour.

Lawyers fear a judge’s decision to ban TV cameras from an LA Superior Court hearing will harm the family’s £31billion civil suit.

And they are worried it will lead to a “digging the dirt” examination of the tragic star’s bizarre lifestyle – especially when son Paris, 16, and daughter Paris, 14, take the stand.

A source said last night: “We feel that with the world not watching, the kids will get a rough ride.

“The defence counsel’s approach is likely be far more aggressive.

“There may be lots of questions about Michael’s child molestation court cases and how he behaved when he was on drugs.”

The source added: “It could be stomach churning stuff.”

Jacko’s other son, Prince Michael ll, 11 – nicknamed Blanket – was just seven when his dad died at 50 in 2009 and may not give evidence.

Jurors were being sworn in last week for the suit against AEG Live.

The promoters are accused of negligently hiring Dr Conrad Murray – the personal medic sentenced to four years in 2011 for Jacko’s involuntary manslaughter by administering the surgical anaesthetic Propofol.

The family, led by Jacko’s mother Katherine, 82, also claim AEG tried to push the star into a tour that he was not physically capable of handling.

The case, due to start later this month, is expected to last about three months.

AEG deny all allegations.

Why would people be grilling his kids about what his sex life was? I don't think the kids would feel comfortable and I don't think that michael would tell his kids about his sex life.

Court of Appeal backs Law Society on disbursement liability

The Court of Appeal, in the case of Flatman v Germany has ruled that solicitors who pay clients' disbursements to help them pursue proceedings are not liable for third party costs orders. The case ran on a conditional fee agreement (no win, no fee), but without after the event insurance, meaning it could be relevant in the post-Jackson world.

Florida man gets no jail time in DUI death of Special Olympics champion; victim's family outraged

Florida man gets no jail time in DUI death of Special Olympics champion; victim's family outraged | children aid society | Scoop.it

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Family members of Bobby Stout, a disabled man hit and killed by a drunk driver, are outraged that the driver and her passenger who grabbed the wheel are not facing any jail time. 

 

On Friday afternoon, the driver and passenger pleaded no contest to charges of vehicular homicide. Both will serve one year of community control.

 

The state attorney's office told Channel 9 in an email last week that the plea deal was approved by the majority of the victim's family. But on Friday the prosecutor told the judge that the sentence was based on the facts and circumstances of the case, and not the family's wishes.

 

"It's as if we're saying, 'Come to Orlando, get drunk, kill and just get probation,'" said Penny Stout, sister of Bobby Stout.

Natalie Houle had a blood alcohol level twice the legal limit on July 9, 2011, and her passenger, Travis Main, was also drunk when the accident happened, according to reports.

 

Investigators said the two were in a fight while driving. Main admitted to grabbing the steering wheel. The car veered over a curb and onto a sidewalk, hitting and killing Stout, a Special Olympics champion...

We need to be mindful and aware of waht helps children and adults learn. It is not enough to hook up the technology and expect everyone to learn in one way.

Beth Case's comment, April 17, 2013 12:56 PM
Technology is a TOOL, not a goal. Just because students learned before the invention of TV doesn't mean education can't be improved. While it can be annoying to jump on every new gimmick, it's just as annoying to be resistant to trying anything new.
