 UK: Professional Negligence: Conveyancers On Both Sides Of A Property Purchase Found Liable To A Defrauded Buyer
Mondaq Business Briefing, April 28, 2016 Thursday

 In Purrunsing v. A'Court & Co (a firm) and House Owners Conveyancers Limited (2016) EWHC 789 (Ch) Judge Pelling QC in the Chancery Division of the High Court held that both the buyer's and seller's conveyancing solicitors were jointly liable to the Claimant buyer for a breach of trust arising out of a property fraud, for which they were not entitled to relief under Section 61 Trustee Act 1925 (a statutory provision that enables the Court to relieve a trustee of liability in certain circumstances). This is an important decision because this is one of the few occasions where a seller's conveyancing solicitor, who does not usually owe any duty of care to a buyer, has been found to be liable to the buyer in circumstances where the seller's solicitors have not been dishonest. Facts of the case

 First damage, then fix?
The Hindu, April 26, 2016 Tuesday

  New Delhi, April 26 -- A highway cutting through Central India's deep forests and a festival that was held along the banks of Delhi's dying Yamuna river have thrown up related questions pertaining to the environment. In the first case, the "very dense forests", as per the classification of the Forest Survey of India, connecting the Kanha and Pench tiger reserves are being cleared for the widening of National Highway 7(NH7). In the second case, a section of the Yamuna floodplain was flattened for an Art of Living-backed World Culture Festival. Both incidents involve environmental damage and in both cases, the court has ordered the respective polluters to pay for environmental degradation. The glaring question is, do polluters pay so they can pollute further? Do we need to make distinctions in the way environmental compensation is meted out? What safeguards should we put in place to prevent violations of existing laws which get sanitised by compensation?

  Toronto: Law Society Tribunal - Ontario has issued the following decision: Appearances: Lisa Freeman, for the Applicant Neil Perrier, for the Respondent Summary: EJIDIKE – Interlocutory Suspension – Lengthy Suspension – Terms –The Society brought a motion for an interlocutory suspension based on two outstanding investigations regarding the Lawyer – One related to multiple alleged instances of double and triple billing by the Lawyer to Legal Aid Ontario (the LAO Matter) – The other (the Family Law Matter) related to unchallenged evidence that the Lawyer misled the court, with the result that a trial was adjourned, with costs thrown away payable by her client – The adjournment also caused continued uncertainty as to issues of custody and access – In the face of significant evidence before the panel as to the Lawyer’s lack of honesty and integrity as a billing lawyer and as counsel before the court, there was no vigorous denial of the alleged misconduct – There were reasonable grounds for believing that there was a significant risk of harm to members of the public and to the public interest in the administration of justice, if an interlocutory suspension order was not made and that making such an order was likely to reduce the risk – The panel rejected the Lawyer’s submission that this was a case essentially involving alleged financial impropriety and that, absent access to LAO work and to trust monies, any risk of harm was sufficiently mitigated, so that with such restrictions an interlocutory suspension was unnecessary – The Family Law Matter showed how failures of integrity and trustworthiness could harm the interests of clients, adverse parties, children and the administration of justice – An interlocutory suspension was ordered – Given that an interlocutory suspension of 12 to 18 months was foreseeable, the panel added to the usual order a term entitling the Lawyer to bring a motion to require the Society to show that the suspension should be continued, taking into account the progress of the investigation, once this order has been in place for five months or once five months have passed after such a motion has been disposed of by a hearing panel.

 Canada: Federal Court Of Appeal Endorses Summary Trial In Counterfeiting Case
Mondaq Business Briefing, April 22, 2016 Friday

 The decision of the Federal Court of Appeal in Annie Pui Kwan Lam v. Chanel S. De R.L. et al1 reviewed a finding of liability for trademark infringement arising from the offering for sale and sale of counterfeit CHANEL merchandise. The case against the individual defendant, Ms. Lam, proceeded by way of summary trial. Corporate defendants that did not participate in the appeal were previously judged in default. On appeal, the trial judge's decision was set aside and remitted back to him for redetermination, in particular on the issue of "the quantum of damages and costs." The Court of Appeal found that as a result of ambiguity in the trial judge's Reasons, it was impossible to discern whether Ms. Lam was found to have committed all four acts of alleged infringement or only three. Faced with this uncertainty, and given that the trial judge "premised his liability determination on an adverse credibility finding", the Court of Appeal held "it would not be appropriate for this Court to step in and resolve the ambiguity by determining whether the appellant should be held liable for three or four occasions of infringement."

 Long Term Mission to Mars could be hard on astronauts' livers
Stock Watch, April 22, 2016 Friday 6:30 AM EST

 Astronauts could suffer from liver damage during long term space missions, especially during a mission to Mars. A latest study conducted by Chinese research team reported that mice suffered liver damage even when they stayed for less than two weeks in space in 2011. During STS-135, the final mission of space shuttle program of NASA, mice returned to earth with signs of early-stage liver disease. Researchers said that the space mice had more fat in their liver as compared to a control group that was present on the ground, and also showed alterations to genes accountable for fats' breakdown. Besides, the mice showed lower levels of retinol, an animal form of vitamin A, which is must for growth of bones, good vision, and many other key body processes.

 Optimising our forests
The Pioneer (India), April 22, 2016 Friday

 India, April 22 -- New Bill raises hopes; Parliament holds key With the Union Cabinet having cleared the amendments to the Compensatory Afforestation Fund Bill, 2015, it is hoped that the green legislation will pass through Parliament and come into force. The Bill is an important piece in the Government's commitment to a sustainable development model and will be necessary to mitigate the ecological costs of the large-scale infrastructure projects that are in the works. The Bill paves the way for utilising the large amount of money that's lying with the ad hoc Compensatory Afforestation Fund Management and Planning Authority. For quite some years now, when projects requiring diversion of forest land for non-forest purposes have been sanctioned, they have been done so on the condition that developers would pay an additional amount for planting trees in other areas so as to compensate for the loss of green cover at the first site. However, while large amounts of money have been paid up and put in to the Compensatory Afforestation Fund, they haven't been utilised in the absence of a proper implementation framework. This is the gap that the new law will plug and in the process, release more than Rs40,000 crore for the purpose of compensatory afforestation.

 Liver damage noticed in mice that spent 13.5 days in space
Stock Watch, April 21, 2016 Thursday 6:30 AM EST

 Mice that have spent 13.5 days aboard the Atlantis shuttle have returned earth with liver damage. The outcome has casted doubts on human's ability to survive long-term space travel. Scientists at the University of Colorado have assessed the livers of mice after they returned from the orbit and came to know that mice have suffered scarring and long-term damage in the spaceflight. The researchers affirmed that the findings could have implication on NASA's manned deep space flight, like Mars mission, which could easily take a year. During the assessment, the research team noticed that the mice on the spaceflight were having increased fat storage in their livers than mice on earth. The mice have shown signs of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and the starting signs of fibrosis.
 Lost and damaged
My Republica, April 21, 2016 Thursday

 Nepal, April 21 -- One of the most troublesome issues that has emerged in Nepal over the years has been the growing apathy of the government towards its suffering civilians. This issue has come into the limelight with more ferocity in the aftermath of the trying year 2072 B.S. With the number of uncompensated victims of various extreme events like the mega earthquake or the victims of various landslides, floods and avalanches multiplying over the years, it is difficult to imagine a future where justice will come to mean anything more than a few thousand rupees each. However, recent international negotiations show that there might be a light at the end of the tunnel, at least for the victims of climate change induced disasters. While words like adaptation and mitigation have dominated the international climate change discussions for quite some time now, a relatively new term 'loss and damage' has entered mainstream discussions only recently. Loss and damage is a sweeping term that describes all the issues that adaptive and mitigative actions have been unable to address. Such issues arise when mitigation or adaptation are completely absent, harmful in the long term, insufficient or completely inept of protecting vulnerable populations and ecosystems from the impact of greenhouse gases (GHG) that have already been released in the atmosphere.

 Changing times may have helped Philip Morris
Missouri Lawyers Media, April 20, 2016 Wednesday

 In 2011, a St. Louis jury deliberated for nearly a week in a case against Philip Morris before declaring a deadlock, resulting in a mistrial. Earlier this month, a jury in the same case deliberated for less than an hour before they came back with a defense verdict. The plaintiffs in the case, all cigarette smokers who bought Marlboro Lights between 1998 and 2003, alleged Philip Morris falsely marketed Marlboro Lights as being less harmful than regular cigarettes. The jury voted 11-1 in favor of the defense – a major shift from the 2011 vote of 8-4 in favor of the plaintiffs. That change may be because more time has passed between when the class bought the cigarettes and when Philip Morris took “lights” and “lower tar and nicotine” labeling off the packages, said attorney Mark Bronson, who represented the plaintiffs.
 Mayor 'not impressed' with Snyder's 30-day promise to drink Flint water
The Lion's Pride: Saint Leo University, April 20, 2016 Wednesday

 Gov. Rick Snyder said he visited a Flint home on Monday and drank filtered water out of the family's kitchen tap, adding that he plans to continue drinking filteredFlint tap water for the next 30 days to show it is safe. The decision was made without planning for corrosion conol, which would have prevented lead from old pipes to enter the water, and thus the water from theFlint River effectively poisoned its residents, particularly children, who faced the greatest risk.Rick Snyder fills jugs with filteredFlint, Mich., tap water at Cheryl Hill's house Monday, April 18, 2016, on the city's east side.Mr Snyder accepted a challenge put forth byFlint residents after he encouraged them to start drinking from the tap instead of bottled water.After the Flint Water Advisory Task Force released the findings of their investigation of the water crisis, they concluded that blame should be placed across the board, starting at the doorstep of the governor."I completely understand why someFlint residents are hesitant to drink the water and I am hopeful I can alleviate some of the skepticism and misust by putting words to action", Snyder said, according to the newspaper.Residents accusedFlint and state officials of violating their rights by providing contaminated water and requiring payment."
