Diving brief:

  • The Biden administration faces its first major legal challenge to its plan to write off large amounts of student loan debt after a libertarian group sued on Tuesdayarguing that officials exceeded their authority and flouted the Constitution.
  • The plaintiff is Frank Garrison, an attorney with the Pacific Legal Foundation, which supports him in the case. Garrison alleges the White House’s actions will hurt him and other borrowers who come from a handful of states — like Indiana, Garrison’s home — that will tax debt forgiveness.
  • Garrison argues that otherwise his debt would have been forgiven without penalty under the Civil Service Loan Forgiveness Program, which forgives debt for borrowers who make a decade of monthly loan repayments while working jobs like non-profit organizations and government work. White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre addressed the lawsuit during a press briefing on Tuesday. She said borrowers can refuse forgiveness and “nobody who doesn’t want debt relief will have to get that debt relief.”

Overview of the dive:

The Biden Administration in August announced plans to cancel up to $10,000 in debt for people earning up to $125,000 a year. Borrowers who received federal Pell grants in college, an indicator of low- or moderate-income status, can be forgiven up to $20,000.

But the administration’s projects were widely expected be challenged in court.

administration justified loan forgiveness citing the Higher Education Student Support Opportunities Act of 2003, or HEROES, Act. It gives the Secretary of Education the authority to modify or waive the federal financial aid program “in connection with a war or other military operation or national emergency.”

The coronavirus pandemic was such an emergency, Biden officials said.

However, conservatives argued that the president’s decisions were financially reckless and unfair to those who never attended college or repaid their loans. They also said the plan was illegal because it violated the authority of Congress.

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office recently estimated that loan forgiveness will cost about $400 billion over three decades.

The Pacific Legal Foundation lawsuit echoes many of these complaints. Court records say the administration acted “with jaw-dropping informality and opacity” in not pursuing a formal regulatory loan cancellation process.

This violated the Administrative Procedure Act, which governs how the federal government must implement regulations, the lawsuit says.

“To the extent that the law can arguably justify nullification, the major issues doctrine requires clear authorization by Congress of such economically and politically significant action, which is lacking here,” the lawsuit states.

Additionally, the Biden administration violated the Constitution by wresting legislative powers from Congress, the lawsuit alleges.

The libertarian group is seeking a jury trial and blocking and outlawing the Biden administration’s plan. He is seeking court costs and other relief the court deems appropriate.

“The cancellation of student debt is unfair to those who have repaid their loan or who have never taken one. This will only lead to more calls for government intervention in education at taxpayer expense,” Steve Simpson, senior counsel at the Pacific Legal Foundation, said in a statement. “Loan cancellation will make Americans more divided, as those who have paid off their loans – or who never went to college – will have good reason to believe that we no longer have a government of the people, by and for the people.”

Release of Elijah McClain’s revised autopsy marks gains transparency, watchdog group says https://trial-jury.org/release-of-elijah-mcclains-revised-autopsy-marks-gains-transparency-watchdog-group-says/ Fri, 23 Sep 2022 21:22:13 +0000 https://trial-jury.org/release-of-elijah-mcclains-revised-autopsy-marks-gains-transparency-watchdog-group-says/

A revised autopsy confirming that Elijah McClain died of ketamine toxicity during his 2019 encounter with Aurora police was released Friday after a county coroner asked a judge to waive an order sealing the document.

A government watchdog called the decision a victory for transparency after the previous ruling kept the autopsy report secret for months.

“It’s not a case of, let’s learn all the horrific details of what happened here. It’s more about holding those responsible accountable in many cases,” said Colorado executive director Jeff Roberts. Freedom of Information Coalition “It is really important that these documents remain open.”

The 23-year-old black man died after being injected with a high dose of ketamine while restrained by officers, according to the unredacted coroner’s report released Friday by the Adams County Coroner.

Previously, McClain’s cause of death had been declared “undetermined”. The manner of his death is still listed as “undetermined”.

The release of the report comes after a contentious debate, including a lawsuit by multiple news outlets, over public access to the document that would shed light on McClain’s death. After police arrested the unarmed massage therapist for “suspicion,” he was put in a neck hold and injected with ketamine. He later died, causing a national outcry.

Adams County Coroner Monica Broncucia-Jordan released the report after Denver District Court Judge Christopher Baumann approved her emergency motion to remove a court seal from the document. Broncucia-Jordan had previously been barred from releasing McClain’s report by Adams County Court Judge Kyle Seedorf because it contained classified grand jury information.

“Openness and transparency are at the heart of good government,” Broncucia-Jordan said in a statement announcing plans to release the autopsy report. “I believe in the public’s right to know and want to be transparent about the work being done in my office. I also respect the rule of law and want to ensure that nothing is disclosed that would violate a court order or could jeopardize the prosecution in this case. That’s why it was imperative that the Denver District Court intervene.

Several news agencies have filed a lawsuit over the publication of the report. Colorado Public Radio attorney Steve Zansberg argued that autopsy reports are a public record under the Colorado Open Records Act and are subject to publication, as non-public sections are redacted.

The report on McClain’s death is key to shedding light on how he died, Roberts said. All autopsy reports are excluded from a provision of the Colorado Open Records Act that makes medical records confidential unless a judge seals the report.

“But there has to be a very compelling reason to do it,” Roberts said.

McClain, who was arrested after a suspicious call to Aurora police, was unarmed and never charged with a crime.

Last year, a state grand jury indicted three officers who restrained McClain and two paramedics who injected him with ketamine with manslaughter and criminally negligent homicide in McClain’s death. They haven’t pleaded yet. They are due in court on November 4.

“In this case, we are talking about a specific person, there are so many controversies and questions about how he died that the autopsy report can shed light on the matter that is really in the public interest,” Roberts said.

Importance of releasing autopsy reports extends beyond those under intense national scrutiny, he said, pointing to children dying in the care system from childhood. Journalists used the reports to uncover inequities within the system, leading to changes in public policies and laws.

U.S. Senator John Hickenlooper recognized the need for public access to these documents while governor when he vetoed a 2018 state senate bill to close public access to autopsy reports on minorsrejecting a request from some county coroners who said releasing the records unnecessarily invades families’ privacy and encourages teenage copycat suicides.

“History shows that bringing tragedies to public attention is the single greatest catalyst for public policy change,” Hickenlooper wrote in his letter explaining the veto. “Transparency can lead to stronger government protections, greater public and private resources, and greater public understanding and demand for change.

Randy Keller, president of Colorado’s Coroner Association, said Friday he thinks the transparency autopsy reports provide to the public is beneficial, explaining that Colorado County coroner’s offices are obligated to release them.

It is not uncommon for coroners to receive new information about a case after the autopsy is completed and both original and amended reports are public records unless ordered by a judge, he added.

“There’s a lot of relevant information on an autopsy report that can cause issues with families, but with our office being an elected office by state law, we don’t really have a choice,” Keller said. “Until it’s court ordered that we can’t release him, he will be released.”

But with access to reports, journalists and the public must weigh how best to use sensitive details with information that could be used to hold people in positions of power to account, he said.

“I hope the media and the general public will keep in mind that sometimes this is very sensitive information for families. Sometimes it can really hurt them and we have to look out for their best interests” , Keller said. “It’s a balancing act.”

MullenLowe Group Latin America brings back INK HOUSE https://trial-jury.org/mullenlowe-group-latin-america-brings-back-ink-house/ Fri, 23 Sep 2022 13:23:50 +0000 https://trial-jury.org/mullenlowe-group-latin-america-brings-back-ink-house/

It’s no secret that day-to-day work in an agency is often very different from what students learn in school. To help bridge this gap, MullenLowe Group Latin America will host the second regional edition of INK HOUSE, an initiative that aims to give graduating students from some of the most recognized schools in advertising, social, communications and related careers in 10 countries in Latin America, to discover what a real pitch process looks like in an agency.

MullenLowe branches in Colombia, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Panama and the Dominican Republic will host teams of students from top local universities who will receive a real briefing – this time for Unilever’s legendary AX brand – from which they must develop a campaign for 24 uninterrupted hours. They will then submit their proposal and present it to the client.

Members of the winning university team will have the opportunity to complete a semester-long internship at local agencies during the first half of 2023. Additionally, among the winning teams for each market, a jury of global experts in network will choose the Gran Winner of the award for the entire Latin American region and will also obtain an award from the Miami Ad School Punta Cana.

Francisco Samper, CEO of MullenLowe Latam, said: “We are delighted with the excellent reception the idea has again received among academic institutions in the region and very grateful to Unilever for giving us the opportunity to realize the project with such an iconic and universal brand as AXE. The 2018 event was a success and we know that universities and educational institutions greatly appreciate this effort by our network to help build better integration between the academic world and the reality of our industry. more than 100 students will be able to access the opportunity to win a one-semester internship in the agencies of our network, while for us it will be an extraordinary opportunity to discover new talents, which, as we all know, are constantly emerging throughout Latin America. ”

Francisco Cevasco, Ax Global Brand Senior Manager, added, “We are very excited to be participating in Ink House Latin America and have so many talents from different countries to work on a file that can become an important part of the brand plan. . We have prepared a stimulating brief to stimulate creativity that will surely result in very good ideas. AX is a brand with a young target and nothing better than young people with fresh ideas to work on this campaign.”

A group of Bordeaux winegrowers launches the pirate wine syndicate https://trial-jury.org/a-group-of-bordeaux-winegrowers-launches-the-pirate-wine-syndicate/ Wed, 21 Sep 2022 06:30:01 +0000 https://trial-jury.org/a-group-of-bordeaux-winegrowers-launches-the-pirate-wine-syndicate/

The project started in 2019 as a Facebook group, created by Fallen downJean-Baptiste Duquesne, winemaker at Château Cazebonne. The positive reactions from the public and other winemakers who followed prompted the group to seek official recognition.

‘The idea came from me and my friend Laurent David from Château Edmus in St-Emilion. It was he who gave me the idea of ​​​​the name “pirate”, says Duquesne Carafe.

‘So in December 2019, I created a Facebook group called Bordeaux Pirate to show that Bordeaux can be different. Anyone could join the group and talk about what’s happening in the area. We now have over three thousand members, of which about one tenth are producers.

The group introduced itself to the public and to the profession in January 2020, when Duquesne exhibited alongside six fellow winegrowers at the Wine Paris fair. “Then Covid hit and everything stopped for two years,” Duquesne explained. Doubled in size, the collective returned to exhibit in 2022 while working to obtain official status.

The collective now has 10 official members, including founders Laurent Cassy of Château Chillac and Fabien Lapeyre of Château La Peyre, as well as Duquesne and David themselves.

The Union des Vignerons Bordeaux Pirate was created with the main objective of associating alternatives and innovative winemakers. “Things are no longer moving in Bordeaux, we have standardized and stereotyped wines. Our key word is innovation,” said Duquesne, whose co-fermented cuvée of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc and work with neglected Bordeaux varietals are examples of activities seen as challenging the status quo.

“But everything that is new interests us. It could be the packaging, the style of the wine, the way you work in the cellar or communicate with the public,” he added.

According to the group, non-conventional Bordeaux producers are unlikely to be noticed, spoken and exchanged, with associations such as the Syndicat de Bordeaux and the region’s multiple classification systems open only to those who meet the criteria defined by the appellation structure of Bordeaux.

To meet this challenge, the Union wishes to offer alternative producers a collective platform to communicate with professionals and the public. ‘The only way I have to have my wines tasted by a journalist is to send them to the Syndicate, but I can only do this if they are labeled with an appellation [which they are not]. You have to be conformist in Bordeaux, there is no other choice,” said Duquesne. “It will be the only way for new, innovative winegrowers to have their wines tasted.”

To become a member of the Pirate Union, winegrowers must pay an annual fee – from €200 to €400 depending on size – and have at least one of their wines labeled “pirate” by a jury of business experts. . “All pirate wines will carry our logo, but we are still working on it because we are not allowed to use the word ‘Bordeaux’,” Duquesne said.

He pointed out that, unlike other organizations, the Pirates Union is not concerned with specific production methods or philosophies. Instead, he pledged to focus on personal identity and innovation by keeping his members as open as possible: “Only then will we see more innovation in the region. We have yet to finalize the set of criteria that will officially define a Bordeaux pirate wine, the only thing for now is that all wines must be organic.

Criteria will be finalized by October, when the band plans to hold its first formal tasting and judging day. The next steps will involve creating a website and organizing a series of official events across France.

SUPREME COURT PRESS RELEASE

Two New Mexico court officials have been recognized by a national organization for their work to improve the state’s pretrial justice system.

Supreme Court Justice Michael E. Vigil received the Charles W. Daniels Judicial Leadership Award from the National Association of Pretrial Services Agencies (NAPSA) and Director of the Courts Administrative Office Arthur Pepin received the John C. Hendricks Award Pioneer of the organization.

“The awards recognize the commitment, vision and leadership of Justices Vigil and Artie Pepin in promoting a fair and efficient justice system in New Mexico through legal and evidence-based practices and policies,” said NAPSA President Spurgeon Kennedy.

The awards were presented at NAPSA’s annual conference and training institute in Atlanta, Georgia.

“Justices Vigil and Artie truly deserve national recognition for advancing pretrial justice in New Mexico. Their efforts benefit all New Mexicans by helping the courts deliver on the promise of equal justice under the law,” said Chief Justice C. Shannon Bacon, who accepted the leadership award Tuesday on behalf of the judge. Vigil. He was unable to attend the conference.

The leadership award is named in honor of former state Supreme Court Justice Charles W. Daniels, who championed pretrial justice reform.

The pre-trial process begins when a person is charged – but not convicted – of a crime and continues until the charges are resolved, such as when they are dismissed, a jury returns a verdict in of a trial or for the individual to enter a plea. A person is presumed innocent throughout the pre-trial phase of the justice system. The law balances the need to protect the community while protecting the rights and freedom of the accused.

Justice Vigil has served on the state’s highest court since 2018 and served as chief justice from 2020 to 2021. He previously served as a state appeals court judge for 15 years.

Pépin received his award on Monday. He has worked as Director of the Courts Administration Office (AOC) since 2006. AOC provides support to New Mexico courts, including technology, budgeting, and human resource management. The AOC also serves as a liaison with the legislative and executive branches of government.

Judge Vigil helped secure funding from the Legislature for the expansion of strong pretrial services in courts across the state. As Chief Justice, he spearheaded the development of 24-hour electronic monitoring of convicted defendants wearing GPS tracking devices while awaiting trial. An AOC program now provides after-hours supervision — nights, weekends and holidays.

Pepin has advocated for pretrial reform for a decade. He authored a 2012-2013 policy paper for the Conference of State Court Administrators on evidence-based pretrial decision-making in which the supervision and release of arrestees is guided by validated research. and information on the likelihood that a released person will return to court. for future hearings and remain free from arrest pending trial.

In 2016, New Mexico voters approved a constitutional amendment aimed at moving the state away from a money-based pretrial system in which defendants – no matter how dangerous they posed to the public – could secure their release before trial if they could afford a cash bail. .

Since the change in the law, the judiciary has established a network of pre-trial service programs to help people comply with their release conditions and return for future court appearances.
