 The family of a man who picked up a BB gun for sale at an Ohio Walmart and was shot dead by police has filed a federal lawsuit, claiming that the corporation and police are responsible for his death. John Crawford III was black, and his family's lawyers Tuesday mentioned Eric Garner, Tamir Rice and Michael Brown as they announced the suit -- evoking cases that have stirred international outrage because the three also were black and killed by police officers. Grand juries chose not to indict officers in those cases, just as they decided not to indict police involved in Crawford's death in Beavercreek.

Targeted News Service, December 16, 2014 Tuesday 3:29 AM EST

 The U.S. Department of Labor's Occupational Safety and Health Administration issued the following Region 1 news release: Metro-North's actions against an injured worker have resulted in the largest punitive damages ever in a retaliation case under the Federal Railroad Safety Act. A recent investigation by the U.S. Labor Department's Occupational Safety and Health Administration uncovered these details and revealed that the worker, who is employed as a coach cleaner for the commuter rail carrier, was retaliated against after reporting the knee injury he suffered on Nov. 17, 2011. As a result, the company has been ordered to pay the employee a total of $250,000 in punitive damages, $10,000 in compensatory damages and to cover reasonable attorney fees. While driving the injured employee to the hospital, a Metro-North supervisor also intimidated the worker, reportedly telling the worker that railroad employees who are hurt on the job are written up for safety and are not considered for advancement or promotions within the company.

 Cops killed man at Walmart, then interrogated girlfriend
CNN.com, December 15, 2014 Monday 10:28 PM EST

 After killing a man at an Ohio Walmart, police interrogated his girlfriend, accusing her of lying, threatening her with jail time and suggesting she could be on drugs, according to a video obtained by CNN. The man, John Crawford III, was holding an air rifle he had picked up off a store shelf when police shot him. A prosecutor called the case a "perfect storm" with "no bad guys," but the family has said police used excessive force. A grand jury decided not to indict the officer who pulled the trigger in the August 5 shooting at a Walmart store in Beavercreek, Ohio. While the Justice Department investigates the case, Crawford's name -- along with Michael Brown and Eric Garner -- is being chanted by some demonstrators across the country protesting what they say is systemic racism that fuels police violence. Now, the family's lawyer says the recently released interrogation video shows police were trying to force Crawford's girlfriend to say something to justify what they'd done.

 Fresh Controversy Dogs Nitel/Mtel Sale
Daily Trust (Abuja), December 15, 2014

 The privatisation of Nigerian Telecommunications Limited (NITEL) and its subsidiary Mobile Telecommunications Limited (MTEL) may yet again suffer another setback over allegations that government sold the assets under its "guided liquidation" below the value offered by a willing buyer. NATCOM Consortium, a consortium run by Skye Bank's chairman, Olatunde Ayeni, the founder of Sahara Energy, last week emerged the winning bidder for the assets of NITEL and MTEL. The federal government had, initially at the financial bids opening for the sale of the assets, rejected a $221 million bid from NATCOM. NATCOM however won the bid when it eventually increased its offer to $252.25 million. Last week's privatisation of the government-owned telecoms companies was widely believed to be the last segment in the reform process which commenced in the year 2000.

 Suit to Enjoin SEC Forum Selection Dismissed
Legal Monitor Worldwide, December 15, 2014 Monday

 Many have expressed concern regarding the increasing use of administrative proceedings by the SEC. Those concerns range from the fairness of the forum to the impact of its lack of discovery on complex cases to the right to a jury trial and the development of the law. At the same time the decision regarding forum selection is vested in the discretion of the SEC under the statutes. The difficulty of challenging that authority is illustrated by the Court's decision in Chau v. SEC, Case No. 14-cv-1903 (S.D.N.Y. Opinion issued Dec. 11, 2014).

 The owner of a standard essential patent (SEP) may have to make a licence offer before seeking an injunction, following the non binding opinion of the Advocate General in the Huawei/ZTE case before the EU's top court. The Court of Justice of the European Union is set to rule on a reference from the Regional Court of Düsseldorf, asking for guidance on the application of the EU prohibition on abuse of market dominance to the enforcement of SEPs. The dispute relates to an essential patent for the 4G 'LTE' standard for mobile telecommunications; moreover, this guidance will be helpful for SEP owners and licensees not only in the telecommunications industry but more generally where one standard involves a large number of patents.

 Narmada, development and dispossession
MINT, December 11, 2014 Thursday

 New Delhi, Dec. 11 -- Medha Patkar was detained earlier this month when she tried to enter the water resources ministry with a group of activists to meet minister Uma Bharti without prior permission. They wanted to tell the minister that the height of the Sardar Sarovar Dam across the Narmada river in Gujarat should be reduced. Even Patkar would not have perhaps guessed that she would be fighting the same battle 25 years after the Narmada Bachao Andolan (NBA) started off. The Narmada project has been a lightning rod for criticism from activists such as Patkar. There are two issues involved. The first is the rather practical issue of whether the families displaced by the project have been adequately compensated for the loss of livelihood. The second is the wider issue of whether such large development projects should be pursued. Patkar has been on stronger ground on the first issue rather than the second.

 Trending in lending: Unto the breach (of trust)
Financial Services Monitor Worldwide, December 11, 2014 Thursday

 It has been evident in lending circles that solicitors' professional indemnity insurance provides mortgagees with the latent guarantee that there is some remedy for doomsday scenarios precipitated by conveyancing negligence. The rules applicable to remedies available against a solicitor for breach of trust are founded on complex equitable principles and the specific remedy applied will depend on the category of fiduciary breach. In theory, the recourse by a lender against a solicitor in a professional negligence claim should be straightforward. However, within recent times, the Courts have not only sought to blend the application of equitable rules but also to import legal principles which traditionally would not feature in the law of equity.

 Can Long Arm of Law Take in Uber for Criminal Liability? Yes, says Cop
New Indian Express, December 10, 2014 Wednesday

 CHENNAI, Dec. 10 -- Can the app-based call taxi service Uber be booked for criminal liability in the case relating to the rape of a woman passenger by a driver in New Delhi? While legal experts say no, a senior police officer says it can."In case of a civil dispute, the cab owner, driver and service provider (read Uber) will have vicarious liability and the same will be reduced to the person committing the offence in case of criminal case," said Advocate Dhana Aravindha Balaji. "Uber cannot wriggle out of the civil liability of ensuring safety and security for clients using the service. But in case of criminal liability, the service provider will also become liable only in the instance of proven gross negligence or mala-fide intentions," he noted.
 Chainflex Robot Cables, Twistable
Automotive Products Finder, December 10, 2014 Wednesday

 India, Dec. 10 -- * Product Categories  Automotive Components & Accessories *Product Profile igus (India), a wholly owned subsidiary of igus GmbH, Germany, specialises in manufacture of polymer bearings and motion plastic products. In the area of automation and robotics, the company offers Chainflex 'Robot' cables. These are twistable robotic cables with a long service life. To account for the torsional movements, different 'soft' structural elements like rayon fibres, PTFE elements or filling elements that absorb torsion forces are used in Chainflex 'Robot' cables. Torsion-optimised shield structures are chosen that can carry out the necessary compensatory movements thanks to special PTFE gliding films. With twistable bus cables in particular, the transmission characteristics such as attenuation, cable capacity and signal quality must remain within very tight tolerance ranges over the whole service life. This is achieved through the use of particularly torsion optimised insulating materials and mechanical attenuation elements with matching capacity values. The highly abrasion-resistant, halogen-free and flame resistant PUR sheathing mixture in motor, hybrid/control cables and bus cables protects the torsion-optimised stranded elements from possible damage. The highly abrasion-resistant, halogen-free TPE-sheath mixture matches the special requirements of the twistable FOC and individual wires, and also protects the stranded elements. Following twistable CF ROBOT cable types are available: hybrid control cables, power servo cable, bus data cables, and fibre optic cables.

 Ogun PDP and Its Protracted Crisis
This Day (Lagos), December 07, 2014

 , in Abeokuta, writes that the political crisis brewing in Ogun State is a replay of the history of political crisis, which the state has witnessed since the Fourth Republic is a replay of the political crisis that consumed Peoples Democratic Party in Ogun State at the 2011 general election is brewing up. The emergence of a particular governorship aspirant, who is believed to be the favourite of the PDP national leadership, has divided the party ahead of next year's general election in the state. Genesis Out of 11 governorship aspirants jostling for the PDP ticket, the party's elders in the state had pencilled down four, a situation that resulted in fierce objection from a section of the party. The four favoured aspirants are two from Ogun Central senatorial district (Remi Bakare and Yanju Lipede) and two from Ogun West senatorial zone (Gboyega Isiaka and Omooba Segun Adewale). Other governorship aspirants, including former Speaker of the House of Representatives Dimeji Bankole, kicked against decisions of the elders to favour four contenders. ‎Bankole then approached the PDP national body to protest what he called a deliberate attempt by the elders in the state to side-line and exclude him from the governorship primaries.

 Diagnosis of reversible causes of coma
The Lancet, December 6, 2014 - December 12, 2014

Introduction Many patients present to emergency departments with an altered state of consciousness. The state of coma is marked by a lack of awareness and response to external stimuli; patients cannot be roused. There are many causes. A history of head injury, cardiac arrest, or hypoglycaemia, or CT of the brain will disclose a clear diagnosis in many cases. Physicians should look out for reversible causes of coma (table 1), in which a specific action taken by the treating physician might reverse it. In general, reversible causes of coma are likely when neurological examination does not show focal deficits and CT is unrevealing,1,2 although in some patients, CT will show a reversible cause such as a compressive mass or acute hydrocephalus. General practitioners, specialists in internal medicine or intensive care, hospital doctors, and emergency physicians must have basic skills in the initial assessment and management of comatose patients. Rapid stabilisation of vital functions should be followed by a focused investigation to find and treat reversible causes. If a systematic diagnostic approach is not used, physicians could undertake many tests, which could prove unnecessary or falsely reassuring. We introduce here a stepwise approach based on the underlying principles of coma pathophysiology combined with knowledge of the reversible causes that should increase the likelihood of establishing an early correct diagnosis.
 Local Miners Not on Same Page with Govt on Auction of Leases
Economic Times (E-Paper Edition), December 6, 2014 Saturday

 The mining industry isn't happy with the government's plans to auction mining leases for iron ore, bauxite and gold through an amendment to the country's 57-year-old MMDR Act.Miners claim that the amendment, if implemented as proposed now, will irreparably damage the industry and want the government to reconsider the same. The mines ministry uploaded a draft of the Mines and Minerals (Development and Regulation) (Amendment) Act, 2014 on its website and is meeting stakeholders in the capital over the next few days.The Federation of Indian Mineral Industries (FIMI), representing some of the country's largest miners, believes that the move will "sound the death knell of the mining industry". Others like the Confederation of Indian Industry are reconciled to the idea after the Supreme Court scrapped the allocation of coal blocks, but say that the government's insistence on relying on state agencies for exploration data undermined the purpose of the amendments. Many steel and aluminium players who failed to get captive raw material see this as an opportunity to access and secure iron ore or bauxite supply.
