"Where do we vast people's rights? And obviously you know I? If you're Catholic, it's at the point conception for other people. It's you know at the point of. you know much later either birth or right before or some point and viability you know, and obviously people will often make Straw man arguments and try and put the other side's point in the most. Ridiculous possible. But the fact of the matter is is that you know there is this societal debate? and. Have about that. I wanted to run this by you. Dent Let's look at the government's role for a minute and and you know. Let's imagine that I I haven't settled on this. By one hundred percent I'm just sort of toying with it and trying to figure out whether it makes any sense at all Looks Look at the government's role as opposed to wear in the development, the fetuses right right at the moment. Traditionally in moral philosophy, the government stepped in as people was created. As people exited. What is what used to be called the state of nature, originally human beings lived in this world where they had no government protection at all nobody did, and you basically offended for yourself out there in the woods or the savannahs of wherever you were and. Did the best you could. And and life was sometimes nasty, brutish and short. Is Thomas Hobbes? and. And that was the way it went. Imagined further for a moment that the last state of nature, the extent in the modern world is womb. And that It's actually in the womb when one. You can say all you want about how much developed and how viable et Cetera, but but it's on exiting the womb that one exits. The state of nature gets a birth certificate the first documentation. Of Their citizenship effectively. And and and they're and there, and then in their moves into the realm where where he or she is protected by the government. Does that make any sense at all. Well I. A little bit. But I guess the thing that I would push back on. As that as an argument is that? You know the social contract that you're describing. isn't necessarily. By all of us We exist within it with sort of a zone. Of a social contract and you know the womb exists within that social contract. and just simply because the person in the womb hasn't necessarily been informed of the social contract doesn't mean that they're any less subject to because. The the woman is herself within that. That zone I think part of you know. oftentimes it just comes down to the question of. what is? What is life and is there a priori? Kind of existence, such that rights would be reasonably. Imposed you know we. We have a scale of legal implications for people throughout their life. For example, children cannot form contracts or be bound by contracts because they don't have the capacity to do so. and oftentimes the abortion debate about this is. If, we have a cluster of cells whether they be a fetus or stem cells or whatever human cells V. Do those things have rights and do they have? Do they rise to the level of existence such that we deemed them to have rights as opposed to? Any other material on earth, such that we would include them within our zone of social contract Yeah, and that's that's ultimately where. Reasonable people disagree in where they have those those debates, but I I guess I would just push back on the idea that you know I certainly understand the idea that this is sort of a wild. The womb is is somewhat outside of society but I I I don't think so I mean I think ultimately it is within, and that's where the government gets. Has The you know has the authority to regulate it is that you know the woman exists within the social contract and we you know some people would see the idea of a social contract not committing merck. And if you believe that the fetus is in in and of itself of life, form, human life form that. Is entitled to Full Rights of a human being. Then it does follow that those can be regulated because you're talking about you know the crime of of you know. Some people would put it bluntly as as or feet aside. and. You know this is. This is the fundamental question, because if it is just a cluster of cells, just assuming for the moment. That it is just not a human being, but is at pre human being is just genetic material. then it's out murder homicide, and there's no justifiable reason to regulate it other than. The, same reasons we regulate any of the medical profession. What I hate to. Resolve this today. Also by out time. Dan Richardson has been my guests is our legal analyst Day gramshop here? The WD FM and am thanks for listening folks It will be back tomorrow with another edition of our program and We wish you good afternoon. Stay healthy there. Washington's more you that.

"The current status is that they can do this, they decide. They WANNA, look at Dave, grams, tax return, or Dan Richardson's tax return. They can do that correct. That is correct, okay, and and and they're basically saying the same principle. Should be able to look at Donald Trump's tax return and. He of course has been resisting this idea throughout and I wonder. Is there some executive prerogative here. You know presidential. Exemption or something, or what is the legal argument in behalf of the trump, administration or trump himself to say? My tax return has greater protections than. Dan Richardson's or Dave Dave Grams tax returns well. It really rests upon what is the intent of the statute and the intent. If he pull your your tax returns mind. Hopefully, it's simply because they need to examine what are probably plain vanilla of boring tax returns of the average citizen You know they're not looking to persecute you or me. you know individually but the fear I think is that you know, and and let me sort of spin out hypothetical animating this you know, imagine imagine a situation where a Republican. Congress. Decides that they're frustrated at a Democratic president who know is doing things contrary to what they believe, and so they take every single top aide to the president and the president. Herself and pull their tax returns as a way of trying to see if they can gain ammunition, not because they have a concern about that person's tax returns but they think if they can find you know a payment to you know an. Illegal Alien Nanny a You know a payment that that would be embarrassing It would give them it would give them political fodder that that's not what the intent of that statute is the intensive. That's at you. It's really very much about. You know regulating the IRS and giving congressional oversight to the to the To that particular department executive department, and so if it becomes a tool of political You know punishment or away for opposing parties to conduct fifty x petitions. You know I think that is a That is certainly a concern of the court. This is also one of those cases I. think that it's really become in important. Just dispute between You know that that's never occurred before simply because. Presidential candidates have always revealed their tax returns Forcing a discussion that we've never had before, it's breaking new ground and you know oftentimes when that happens, courts don't necessarily want they want him. They WANNA. Put some some. Some guardrails on it. And daylight between themselves and the political debate over whether, or maybe we should pass laws ing all presidential candidates released your tax returns and the end of it. Well Dan Richardson Very Informative and insightful commentary as usual this morning I really appreciate you joining me here on the Dave Graham show on wd. FM and am thank you so much.

"No I don't think lawyers are going to be involved in how court or should be involved in of course staffer or spaced out. You know behind Behind the wall there but to the extent that we're talking about how hearing slow how Jerry draws are conducted how You know hearings are scheduled but given priority or not you know I think it sounds sounds very much that you know this is this is at the initial stages from the court planning point of view So I certainly won't say hey. You know we should have been brought in long before that. This is just starting. I think we're all kind of reacting but I guess it's just a plea in a petition to to include us as it as it does go along Because I think you know we can make full contributions to it. Before in in order is issued as a final order it's always good to get sort of litmus test from attorneys as to. What is this going to work for us? Is this sensible You know in our best kind clients best interest or are there things that you know are are missing or can be added and make a better So that's just all and you know I think a lot of it. Is You know. The court runs itself and the administers its own programs. But at the same time you know we are the main customers of judicial services as a bar and you're and so it's a diet is a dialogue or a dialectic. If you're a galleon well you know I I am. I say must be. It's probably tough right now to stop by the Court House file of all that in the form of emotion so I'm glad to help out here on the ramp Shell. You're dead Anyway Patricia. What did you think of that last? sad remarks by petitioning attorney so. I agree with Dan that as the court looks set for example which kind of cases should be rolling out. I along the lines of the priorities. Such gruesome was talking about that The bar must be involved in fact that is part of the Supreme Court's plan as it starts to look at Including more cases to be heard the ten point plan I was talking about actually was more along the lines of what we need to do. that requires funding. And as you know the state of Vermont received a grant for one point two five billion dollars and that's intended to address specifically the Kobe nineteen emergency and so we've That's been on a very tight timeframe and so last week we needed to develop the The items that we need funded in order to be able to open up the court system and along the lines of what? Dan was saying The another part of the ten point plan is to get the remote technology in place to support court proceedings and so you can understand that with Fourteen units of the Superior Court one in each county and multiple buildings in some of those counties for us to do remote proceedings We need not only technology in those buildings supporting judges who conduct hearings on what's called Webex. It's one of those platforms but in order to provide public access to court proceedings. We also need to livestream them and so we do not at the moment. Have the technology that permits us to do that. We have been Piloting things and this is if there's a silver lining to the terrible crisis we're facing it's that on in real time we've had to develop Experiments and pilots and it isn't just the court who are is a participant in that but all the parties and lawyers involved in the proceedings. are also participants in a kind of experiment. And just to give you an example. What we've learned is that we have pretty reliable technology available to us from the court and for people who are on the state system so to speak. They can participate pretty well but we have people participating in hearings who are not on the state system and so part of what we need to do is to make sure that there are. There's enough technology and there's enough support staff to provide access to justice equally to all those participants and so remote technologies is key to being able to Hear more cases likewise in addition to court hearings. We have a lot of services that we are either obligated to provide For Constitutional or legal reasons. Or it's best practice To provide and in particular I would mention. I think it's true that lawyers are he Customers if you will of the judiciary but actually most of our cases involve people who are not represented by lawyers and so we have the same obligation to those people To provide access e even in a time of remote technologies. One of the things we're doing is seeking funding to support Additional resources so we can answer phone calls for courts around the state Centrally to make sure that the Issues that people have Are Hurting real time. And the we're we're going to be supported in that. By the fact that our electronic case management system is now in the process of Rollout. Which makes that much easier to do because people in who are answering those calls can actually go in and see those cases we also responsibilities to people who who For them English is not a first language. And we're required and are happy to provide Court interpretation and translation services. And so we will need to be able to do video remote interpreting for example and we're also Considering whether or not and this is where an area where the bar will be very important. Should we start to host? Online dispute resolution capability. And of course we wouldn't move forward on that without a consultation with the bar. Let me ask about sort of alternative dispute resolution. Dan Richardson Do. Are You Finding Ernie? Any sort of change in practice. Recently were more. Cases are being sort of settled out of court these days or because the courts are less available or is that not really taken hold yet. Well I don't I don't know if I have any data to support a rise or not but there's two things I think that our have arisen as a result of this is one you know it just plays into the economic factors of how you settle. Which is if you know that you're going have to wait to get in front of a judge you know until the other side of You know this this crisis and then maybe some time beyond that because there are going to be other cases in in line ahead of you That factors in because that means that time and time is money in a Lotta situations and so you know whereas your client bottom line. Was You know this? This number is going to go a little bit lower because you know you know that even if you settle for less that's still better than if you have to wait four or five months but You know in that respect. I think it's it's it is leading to settlements just simply because it's it's another pressure that's pushing parties towards towards settlement if if money is the factor If it's not you know I know there are a number of cases out there where money is not necessarily the factor and they aren't settling but they weren't going to settle probably anyway. The other thing rise is that You know a lot of mediators are adapting to the situation and doing online Mediation through through zoom and a lot of times what they do is Is Use multiple zoom platforms to have have virtual mediation? So you know you and your client will log onto one. Jim Account and mediator will come on and then log out and go to the other doom account where the other side is sitting there and basically have these conversations back and forth In real time And I know one mediator for example. I think Tim Spin. Coupling BURLINGTON has had At least a dozen of these Mediation in this point and I know Michael Marks and TAT POWERS DOWN. A Middlebury done similar. So you know this this This is something where people are adapting. I don't know what the success rates are of those online mediations if there as compared to sort of the in person mediation But I mean they're successful enough that I think the mediators are continuing to to push them. Forward and lawyers are agreeing to participate in them. So I think it's something where you know. Dispute Resolution moves on. And anytime you know. There's there's all these pressures on cases and all these factors that lead to settlement and certainly this court pressure is is putting additional pressure on to to say you know. No we're not going to settle or you know. Resolve this to the court system because of the circumstances in in the near future. So let's let's do something to get it resolved in so I think it does spark creative thinking as well judge Greeson and I wanted to go back to something you said just before the break at the bottom of the hour we were talking about perhaps having to take a somewhat Slow cooking approach. Here I don't know maybe that's a bad metaphor but fewer cases in the course of a day. Because for instance balladeer would be would be slower in a little more cumbersome in an age of social distancing and so on My impression all along has been that the court system in Vermont like a lot of other states is already Bending a bit under its workload not hasn't been easy life for you folks pretty previous to Kobe. Nineteen if all of a sudden were in a situation where you know. We've got a handle fewer cases just because things are a bit more socially awkward. Shall we say House what kind of effect do you think? That's going to have overall Dana clearly you use the term getting back to normal no when the court system.

"You were saying before the a program that we have a little conversation earlier this morning and You told me that the MS as a continuation of operations plan that is set up for responding to various emergencies. And one thing you mentioned was that work had begun on On a plan designed specifically to date with pandemics but it wasn't quite completed Where are we on that? And and how how how sororities at being tested and tell me about that so yes you can imagine. It's being completed much more rapidly. So what's interesting about the more traditional continuation of operation or continuity of Operations Plan? Is that normally That was those were originally envisioned in times of natural disaster flood. Fire that kind of thing and so often those really talk about moving operations from one building to another for example A pandemic is a completely different animal and The kinds of remedies in the kind of steps you take during a natural disaster really. Don't work in a pandemic and of course we're living that in real time and I wanted to say that at least up to this point I think we've had great cooperation With the bar with the legislature with advocates with the governor's office as we all work our way through these uncertainties on the one hand the the urgency and the rapid escalation of events has required leaders to make a deliberative but pretty quick decisions in order to protect people's health and lives on the other hand is Dan pointed out Often there are a lot of questions in the middle of those general guidelines and so we've had experiences where judge Gerson and Gerson as chief superior judge of the trial courts and he and I have been working with members of the bar and advocates On different kinds of substantive issues. You know simple questions. Maybe not so simple such as One Dan mentioned who should take action. Is this an executive branch? Area of jurisdiction is at a judiciary area of jurisdiction is at a legislative Area of jurisdiction and and working closely with the people. We've worked with for a long time to try and clarify that. The parties may all agree. That certain outcomes are optimal but we need to make sure that we do that. within the context of our government structure and. I just wanted to comment about how helpful. It's been that Everyone is problem solving together. It's it's as if we're on one big team working together even though we might normally be in silos of a kind. Yeah I mean just in terms of of that decision about who which branch handles which question I was told about a A OF SANTA TESTING. You're involved in in in recent days here. Patricia Gable in which A question came up about. Would the courts Put a hold as part of this emergency action on eviction proceedings and and. I think the response came that you would look to the legislature for guidance on that is that right. Well what we said was the legislative branch and the executive branch deal with policy issues in the judiciary we deal with issues on a case by case basis and so if you look at something like landlord tennant. Our question is not the overall policy question. Our question is twofold One is Does it affect the administration of the judiciary and there is a provision exception to the general postponement of cases are emergency. Landlord tenant cases within the second question comes up in individual cases. What does that mean because even though some of us may have a certain stereotypical idea of? Who's a landlord WHO's attendant in real cases with real people involved The the real cases don't necessarily match the stereotype and so in that case judges would look at any particular case and look to say. Is there an emergency here that we need to deal with whereas in many states The some of the moratorium that I've been instituted. I've been instituted by executive order by the governor and if the governor doesn't act and the legislature also has though the power to act and that's the kind of area where we're trying to do problem solving where we're talking people through what what can and should we be recommending to the court for example and Where do we really think it should be taking place somewhere else and Dan Richardson? You mentioned the this. You describe the valley. I thought it was a beautiful metaphor actually wherein sometimes the lawyers are feeling Somewhat caught in the middle between directions coming down from the executive and directions And you know what the judiciary's expectations seem to be Do you have an example? You can give me of of a case where where that is You know that's come up. Well sure I mean you know with Governor Governor Scott Order That came out Monday To stay in place effectively A lot of lawyers were you know I. I know there was a -mergency call with the bar. Association the Section chairs yesterday trying to sort that out and how that stay at home or stay in place order would would affect the lawyers Where the categories within the the order of the exempted professions are exempt businesses effectively. You know did not expressly say lawyers or law firms or attorneys You know where what what would the attorneys do In the light of that and are they risking legal action or sanction by going to their off or or or acting and and and as you might imagine you know any type of of issue like that there are some people that you know. Read it one way and read it another way. We're lawyers. That's that's our job is to read things closely into disagree But you know in in that respect you know we were.

"You just Doings in Washington with this impeachment trial of president trump and I guess my first threshold question here Dan. Richardson is Ken Can you have a trial. Wow without without evidence and witnesses or what do you have well I have an existential dilemma and possibly Dada Art it project but Referred to as a data art project before but okay man it just raises a question. I mean the trial itself has has certain connotations. And this goes back to what you know we've talked about before it's the fact that while we call it a trial. While has some trappings of judicial will process. You know have a guy a robe sitting top a bench in front of everybody It's not a trial. It's not a judicial proceeding. It is very much a political article process And so by that respect they can set the rules and I think You know so Kennedy do what they're doing. Yeah they can be called show trial. It could be called that or could be called a process that you know lack substance and You know lacks the the trappings that you know. There's a reason why we have court in certain procedures in court and that's to ensure a fair trial ensure that we touched upon the substance of the issues. I mean the right cross examination is a classic right. Not because it's it's fancy and fun and makes for good television but because it you know over the years we've found in the centuries we founded gets at the truth that if you test people's evidence if you test people's testimony mony by allowing the other side to ask questions You can often get at some of the truth of the matter in so by not having witnesses by not having having any process of a basically just hearing a recitation of it You know it's not a it's not a trial it becomes a political process and it reflects lex to a certain extent the political realities of the moment. And so you know you get these senators that are coming out. You know someone like Lamar Alexander exander. Who Says Yeah? He did what he did. We don't we don't need witnesses to prove it. They've proven their case. There's no doubt factually But you know I'm not going to vote for witnesses and I'm GonNa vote to impeach because you know of of basically the politics And so you know that's in some ways the way the process designed to work is that the political process In the politicians that are intended to do follow up with that process process. act like creatures of that they are and the The fact that the House has not brought an appears to not planning and not be planning to bring charges related to The payoff from came campaign finance funds to story stormy Daniels and And Karen McDougal Michael Michael Cohen. The co-conspirator that episode is in jail right. The other co-conspirator individual one is in the White House. That's that that it says to me that maybe there's something that could be pending there but appears to not be and What do you make of that? I mean are are are you at all worried that going to future. Administrations that varies presence will think wow I can do this to You know anytime that there are these These these instances and and I think this is the real danger is that it does set precedents and it does set you know it. It does set the bar for behavior or for expectations You know I think yeah. I saw somewhere posting around basically that if an assist as sword dream scenario That you know if the Democrats should flip the Senate and get sixty seven seats they can immediately impeach and remove Donald Trump without Without having any sort of trial based on the Senate Republican consented precedent. And you know it technically. That's true realistically. That's an impossible scenario. Because I can't imagine a scenario where they would re elect I trump and you know exactly you know I mean that's just it's just silly but but it's it does indicate that you know people will do think that way and and every it's it's it's a physics of politics. Every action has an equal and opposite reaction. Let's bring a caller Fred's on the line from new. Good Morning Fred Ward. Hey is it possible. To prevent impeachment from becoming abuse is a positive positive. Yeah go ahead. Yeah I was just going to repeat the question as possible to prevent impeachment from becoming abused. Yeah do you think it's been abused here in this case you ask me. Yeah Yeah do you. Don't you don't think there should be any Any punishment I mean. The president can't be charged with a crime according to the Justice Department. So you can't do that. Yeah Yeah Yeah but the The Congress the House of Representatives can teach any presidents. They weren't so do that's what they did. Okay just came up. We don't like this guy. We're GONNA impeach him well. I think they had a little more reason than that. At least what they describe he. So you don't buy the idea that he that he basically threatened Ukraine With the cut off of military aid if they didn't produce dirt on the Biden's is that yeah naked. Say anything they can say they could. He abused Congress. That's what they can say. Okay well we used his power. We'll do you believe that. The story about Ukraine is true. Which of which Lamar Alexander family believes? Lisa Murkowski a Republican apparently believes in some of the other Republicans are saying. Yeah he did this stuff but you don't you don't think he did Difficult I mean I I would say I don't know if that's the way politics are desk. This whole thing. Is We when he lent money. Let your politics determine what the facts are in anyone mind. Yeah but that's what other facts you know you get your facts. I've got my facts. I disagree wholeheartedly. I ah the boulder. We're not talking about beauty here. We're talking about daily. Make the phone call does Alinsky. We're talking about. What did he say on the phone on call? We're talking about what kind of what kind of threats were made and you know what are you. What are you going to withhold? What am I gonNA withhold? If you don't do what I what I want you to so Et CETERA. There are to be found here Fred and And and to say that you know there aren't any facts to be found here. I think is just. That's what that's what will really lead us to a very bad place in in American politics if Okay so so basically what's GonNa Happen it's GonNa Happen and you'll have to I. I think that the voters are going to determine the fate of the president. Why can't we let the voters determine the fate of the president of the voters order corrupted me? A president happened and don't when he fell into it does it does bring back the HMO Minkin line that In a democracy the voters get the kind of government they deserve. But you know I guess I would Share Dave's concerned concerned that you know. It's one thing to make a decision such as Lamar Alexander. Lisa Murkowski did. That's you know has has a political bent into it That says okay. The facts are what they are but we don't think this is worthy of impeachment but to deny the nature of the facts. I think it's very well established that you know. This president did threaten and did take action to withhold funds from Ukraine that had been approved by Congress which which she doesn't have the authority to do And he did so for political gain in his reelection campaign Now whether that's an impeachable impeachable offense you know. That's where people start to divide along political spectrum but to deny that that happened. I think you know is is to some extent refuting reality. Fred of Democrat did what Dan just. You just described the exact same set of facts but we're a democratic president using that president would deserve to be impeached teached. There was a Republican House. Represent would be. That would be good thing. You don't Oh okay. At least you're even handed about it so I appreciate that. Hey Fred I gotta go thank you for the call. I really appreciate it Dan I'm I'm just wondering But I I would say to folks by the way There are some people who are Essentially calling the show every day and I got urged people to maybe spread it out a little because we try to let other folks have turn To jump in here to the conversation from time to time and I I don't WanNA mention any names but I'm just reminded very recently about this issue here so okay and the And I it's directly at some of the folks it's out there who may wonder why I don't I don't always Pick up the Pick up the call as it comes in beaches if I already heard very from avert. It's only Tuesday him hearing from somebody. I'm thinking this is going to be five calls this week. Or what's the what's the deal. Sure so it's an interesting conversation. I mean I think people feel passionately differently about it and you know the last caller I think expresses some of the concern that we You know that that is evolving in politics which is a bit it of identity tied up into politics on a on a national level in a in a way that I don't think we've seen in at least in recent history. I I mean I think you can look to pass precedent but You know and I. It's a sports analogy. which is you know? The forty niners lost the Super Bowl. My brother happens to be a huge forty. Niners fan has for decades He didn't stop liking the forty niners because they lost because they made mistakes in the game. Right awesome the game. You know if anything his loyalty drives that much deeper and I think we find I I see it at least anecdotally. You know that people start to identify a partisan Louis with with their politics and it's not about the substance. It's not about the issues. It's about the identity you know this is my president or this is my congressperson. Listen this is my party I really. I really wish it were different. I I wish that we could We could get back to time when when the facts actually mattered. And and you know I if if if a Democrat or you know anybody gets elected and does some of the things. This president has done I would be fully in support of a of holding this president accountable of any party and And that's that's the bottom line for me. That's why I think the facts do matter. It's very important to get to the bottom. Some of them and At follow them where they logically lead. Hey as it happens We are about the top of the hour here on the Dave Ramsey show. WD FM and am and are really. Appreciate Dan Richardson coming in this morning. Thanks so much pleasure and we are going to All Day on this program and be back tomorrow for another edition. Meanwhile stay tuned. Four Bill Sayer Common Sense Radio Radio and have a great afternoon everybody in Rome..

"I think there's all kinds of different Resulting effects effects of something like that. I mean the politics of it Are you know that the longer this is the focus the less yes. They're gonNA focus on the Democratic candidates for president and The more senators in Washington facing tough reelection fights have have to stay in Washington. There is that. Yeah Yeah I mean I think there are these trade offs honestly. It's it's one of these things where you know I I. I think the the timing of it is going to fall where it's GonNa fall and and people afterwards are gonNA say well. That was brilliant that they fast or they did it so a slow. Yeah Yeah I did. It was really stupid if they did. It was really brilliant so we got a caller on the line. We're going to going to salmon. We'll listen good morning Sam and they take your idea of holding this off to the suspension is factoring the whole quarter because people for the people in this country are sick of this whole thing and nobody's paying attention. Nobody's really watching It's it's search through about nothing The Democrats will false foil alarm here and I think it's going to wash back on them. They want to continue it eh. Go into the into invention seasons I gonNA pay the price okay. Well that's interesting interesting perspective. I I do think that There if if they do decide to delay is part of the strategy getting some good help from from the White House. That's one thing I I would say. So maybe it's looking at it. I mean he hasn't executive privilege And if the courts we're supposed to go initial there's three branches they're the ones inside. They're the ones who broke the glass on this thing and They're the ones who have to sweep it up. I think they made a big mistake. And pulling this deal when they didn't have the proof in in in their hands of some kind of malfeasance. You know I just think as a matter of fundamental fairness it's it's really difficult for me to hear somebody say they don't don't have the proof and meanwhile we're not going to send the witnesses they need to ask about proof and so I mean it's just To me is just a big game. It's a shell game so no because just like in any case you're you're a lot he allowed to appear your evidence and you put up your. I'm not I'm not I'M NOT GONNA go in. It's not like any court case because at any court case subpoena witness they come in. That's how it works. And you subpoena witness basically flipping the bird himself and it is a one sided. Shell Sam thanks for the call back to my guest here Dan Richardson. I did want to cover This news on illegal front yesterday with you in just a few minutes left to do so Tell me a little bit about the Supreme Cream Court delay. I guess they're saying we're not gonNA decide right away on this question of The president's tax tax reform tax returns Well what happened is there's two there's essentially two cases there's one coming out of the New York District through the New York City District Attorney's Office And there is one coming out of Congress. Both seeking President Trump's pre presidential tax returns yes for various reasons the Democrats invoking specific federal law that allows them to review Individual tax returns and and the District Attorney's Office is investigating the tax returns for various allegations That may or may not be criminal but dealing with Some of the fallout particularly from his The nonprofit foundation and trump has fought vigorously to block this release on both sides And the courts have said No. You can't Block this that. These documents can be subpoenaed by these various entities and So the Supreme Court Yesterday said Hold on we're going to keep the stay in replace. We're going to keep the status quo. But the parties have until December fifth to file their notice of appeal. So basically ten days and and you know it's characterizing it as a win for either side I think is misleading. What the court is basically saying is we're going to keep the status quo but we want on? We want this issue quickly briefed as to whether we're even going to review it And and so it's it's a little bit of a delay Now that's stay can be translated into a more permanent stay until the if the Supreme Court decides to take up the case and review it they may extend the stay a in which case the stay would go until June but that's if they don't grant the review than the stay would immediately cease and and and the records would have to be turned over. So you know this is a bit of a procedural steps that they're taking It's not clear there was no dissent In this order. So you know it may very well be Just just the court process working through and and you know it's not an unfair step. Take I mean this is what courts often do when they're considering reviewing something because if in fact the state didn't issue then the documents would have been subject to subpoena And and basically the the case would have been resolved Before the court had a chance to hear it and in something like this they want to preserve the status quo so that they can in fact make that decision. Yeah I I guess What's the calendar like? I mean if if it did go to a decision by the Supreme Court Could it'd be not until spring right right. We're probably talking about June That's usually when when this term the decisions from this coming term are are issued. Yeah so it would be curly late spring early summer and again we're really getting into the heat of the main.

"And the Steven and Susan Fishman the defendants in the lawsuit here are Noah fisherman's parents so you know they obviously close family relations there and and I would gathered at some point. Maybe the land was subdivided or whatever and the younger Fishman couple established a home daycare on the on the subdivided land the older the older generation says to the younger generation. If your daycare charges in staff WANNA come over and and use our Orlando to gain access to the Brooke here you're welcome to do that no charge no exchange of funds or anything and that's that's sort of was the background that I mean that's what laid down the circumstances for this unfortunate event right now and you know. I mean I think the dissent really latches onto that relationship as well as the fact that there were improvements was a sandbox teepee. This was not just wild open land. This was somewhat you know developed for this type of purpose of these kids coming down and frankly this is very very common by my I children went to daycare in Montpellier and had a very similar circuit circumstance where the daycare owns a small portion of land a little Kurt lidge around the the the house where the daycare is but then they go walking off into the woods you know and and one thing about this decision is that should encourage bridge landowners to allow that because it does protect those landowners even when you know the there's a sandbox or there's a trail or there's a bridge or there's a teepee. you know those aren't enough. The court is saying to create to to change the liability relationship. Well you know ah I wanNA reflect for a moment on these sort of alternative scenario. Here of this. Three decision gone the other way. What impact would that have on the on recreation Asian in Vermont Vermont. Has this ethos of of you know people storage saying you want to hunt on my property. That's fine. You want to cross my property. Get to the stream fishing. That's fine you. WanNa put a hiking trail across my property. The long trails still I believe crosses some areas where it's technically private property but agreements between the Green Mountain Club which manages the long trail and the private property owners to say that's that's a welcome activity also what would the impact on these various activities. If this case had gone the other way I don't I don't think it was affected the long trail largely because I think those are both and and operated non profit and you know the owners are really that classic kind of recreational use but what it would have given pause Haas too. I think are a lot of landowners that have businesses nearby them. You know the setup in this particular case is not unique as I was mentioning before there are a lot of daycares that are located on small parcels abutting larger woods and those landowners let those daycares there's come in. They may let them build a sandbox on the property. They may let them build trails and bridges and other things and if I was representing one of those large landowners in this case gone the the other way I would have had them revisit that substantially you know whether would've been cutting them off completely I don't know but it would have yeah. I think it would have given all of these landowners creek deal of pause. you know you look at national life in Montpellier that you know there's a daycare that abuts it my children actually really want to and you know they let they let the daycare use it but if gone the other way and I was counsel for National Life I would have said we need to revisit that we need to make sure we're in compliance because you know what the issue here what the hook was was that the parents who owned the land had allowed improvements or made improvements to the land that that facilitated this daycare so even though they were otherwise open and holding Minnesota as open recreational use of land the relationship between the two was such that would've if the decision had gone the other way would have been the trigger and I would've it would've caused every single landowner. I think that had this type of situation to have to revisit the nature of their relationship so in in some ways you know this. This is a good decision. If you're hunter. You're a landowner that has in this type of relationship this decision the way it came out does protect that obviously if your this particular family and you're seeking some you know semblance of of Justice through this decision. It's IT SAT. It's tragic very sad. Indeed of young young boy drowning is always a tragedy a I'm Jay. You've got me curious now. This is a bit of a tangent maybe but I'm just curious in terms of the way lawyers operate in and and so Supreme Court decision comes down like this that say it did go the other way and you know you have a couple of clients who owned properties adjacent to daycare centers and and the clients allow how the daycare centers access to their properties much in the same way as this one did do you proactively call those clients and say hey you you should know there's a important court decision came down to it could affect you. Yes I do that sometimes. Sometimes I don't even chance the clients already called and said. Have you heard about this case. As what what does it mean for me. You know and certainly I see this a lot with municipal clients. Where there's a decision comes out that changes the field in a way they need to operate and we called the municipal client to tell them hey? You need to be aware of this decision if you're doing it this way that needs to change so it's it's sort sort of a heads up kind of a situation it is it is to you know not fall into the same trap that the the losing side did or you know in some ways to to enlighten them that hey you can do things this way. you know that sort of. I know some lawyers with their clients to long term clients do what what they call an annual tuneup which is let me give you an update as to the status of these particular cases that are likely to affect you uh-huh and what you need to do differently differently. If you haven't already yeah that's GonNa be a pretty involved process. You think about something like like school district whether it is constantly court decisions all the time involving schools and so you'd want the superintendent. Maybe the school board to get an annual. You know a regular report from the attorney for the district who comes in and says here's what here's what the latest is from the Bronx record here's or or the US Supreme Court here's how it could affect our district that Cetera it makes no sense keeps us busy keeps you guys well employed so that's a that's a good thing hey we are fast approaching the top of the hour here which means the end of this Tuesday morning Dave Graham Show wd Ev FM and am.

"And you know and and i shouldn't say the some people i have appeared before side judges in judicial bureau <hes> in small claims court and they have been very capable and they have been very competent to do so <hes> the question is i think really one of is this a good larger system. <hes> you know question and that you know i won't give an opinion on but certainly they could play other roles. It's not as if this is the only possible system that could ever exist <hes> there are other models elsewhere and you know when we think about social services in vermont <hes> <hes> you know a lot of towns are struggling with these kind of programs because you know a town like mom pillar middlebury rutland that that serves their surrounding towns that don't have the capacity to do it well if you had that on a countywide basis. You could really do some larger good. I mean just think about something like libraries. If you had a county based as library system you could have <hes> you know a lot of states. Have you could move the resources to where the need was <hes> and it wouldn't necessarily the sara lee be the the limits of the town or the city. That actually is an interesting idea. I mean i know in the case of my pillow right. I think you live and i it was well we have the city has the cal cal hubbard library and there's always this question every town meeting. What are they neighboring towns gonna do about i think in a chip in cetera and they don't necessarily want you because they have to come into montpellier to get the services. So maybe you know there. There is could be a role for something which supersedes towns with isn't isn't statewide had <hes> county government in vermont historically has shrunken shrunk and become really a shell of its former self. One of these last vestiges these aside judges. Maybe there is a <hes> as you put more of a county commissioner roll out there. I know i know that's the way it works. In massachusetts counties have the county commission and they actually do you have some purview over various various functions and so on so interesting thought <hes> hey. We are fast approaching. The top of the hour here on the day of graham show w._d. F._m. um and because it's the second hour that means we're fast approaching the end of today's program. I wanna thank my guest.

"Question. Let me let me put it to dan richardson dan. What do you think about that sure well. I mean there's there's already <hes> a drug court that really tries to you know especially if you're in in volved in the criminal end of of it <hes> you know the the vermont court which has been expanding and isn't there statewide yet but is is building. You know aims towards that kind kind of of collaborative work where <hes> the counselors in the you know the the health professionals are the ones that are leading the treatment and the court it plays a role in that as opposed to you know <hes> issuing sentences based on you know somebody's inability to to overcome addiction. <hes> it's there to provide support in that respect but the problem is is that you know these these are situations where <hes> if somebody has an addiction issue <hes> you know and they are committing a crime. There's a question of are they committing a crime because they have happened addiction or are they someone who have a criminal mentality who you know regardless of the addictive <hes> personality would be committing crimes anyway <hes> and you know the the first category is the classic candidate for drug court where you can lean back off of the <hes> you you know the sort of judicial process. Let the let the clinical health process take its role <hes> but the second category is is is one in which there is.

Thanks for joining us this morning. Always a pleasure and <hes> wanted to check in with you about a couple of things going on one. Is this actually i i we had a little discussion about it on the day.

Dot org headed through ryota cra- aspiration talking about this a similar issue. Yeah it's playing out all across the northeast kingdom. You know the question of how much access to give a._t._v.'s the public roads you know do you <hes> allow them to ride on all roads <hes> along with paths the roads often connect those a._t._v. has or do you sort of give them very limited access s. based on what they need <hes> the debates happening in montgomery and holland and hardwick and sutton <hes> and as you said just in focused on crafts berry where they just had a vote vote on tuesday last week that really divided the town <hes> the story that he wrote starts with the select board chair saying that no issue in his thirty years or something. I'm sort sort of involvement in local politics has divided the town as much as <hes> this question of how much road access to give all terrain vehicles <hes> and there was sort of a the new rule that was written <hes> that actually made <hes> increased access somewhat but atv riders wanted more access so they reopened the debate <hes> sorta in a way shot themselves in the foot because <hes> ended up going the other direction and they rolled back by vote of one hundred and nine to eighty six the rules that had had been passed a couple of years ago <hes> so there's now very limited access for atv riders <hes> in crafts berry <hes> but the story really gets into a bigger sort of cultural question question of whether a._t._v.'s.

"Talking with Dan Richardson is a past president of the Vermont bar association and a regular guest on the day, Graham show here on WD EV FM and AM. Today's topic is about the graying the aging of the legal profession in Vermont, and we're as we noted that's certainly not unique to the legal profession. But, but the legal Russian actually may be sort of a canary, Nicole mine, kind of thing for the overall for Mont economy in Vermont demographic, picture. And then. Why do we think I mean, let's talk about the, the beginning of the pipeline near the only law school in Vermont is the is the rollout law school in south royalty. And they've been going through some upheaval in recent times. And is that part of the reason that we are seeing fewer lawyers coming into the profession? I mean they've been quite a pipeline over the years for developing legal talented in Vermont. They have been, and I think that is part of the story, you know, there's been a shift when I went to law school and beginning really the nineties and early two thousands. The idea of going to law school was sold, as you could be anything. If you go to law school, you can it's, it's the perfect flexible degree, which it isn't if you wanna be a lawyer law school is the best thing in the world. If you don't you probably better off putting your money. Elsewhere, it's not the universal degree. It was it was sold as and I think, you know, right after the. The crash of the market in two thousand eight a lot of people went back to graduate school, thinking, I'll ride out the, the rough economy in, in school. And law school enrollments saw their numbers go up quite substantially and a lot of schools took advantage of that. I mean, the law schools were seen as this great moneymaker. So there were all these law schools over started law schools, that existed one under capital campaigns to expand Vermont law school is one of them, you know, they went from their, their physical footprint went from a relatively modest sized to expanding and renovating these buildings and creating these vary Laverick classrooms, in part to keep up with the rat race. But also, you know, it was the sort of overly optimistic and then it crashed. Because what happened was people got out started graduating, and there were no jobs. Or, you know, your degree wasn't the great universal key to unlock employment elsewhere. And so you had this. Sort of backlash in the in the teens early teens were people stopped enrolling while these law schools needed people to enroll, and they had a lot of problems and some of these smaller independent law schools, you know, we're desperate. And so when you are dealing with fewer applicants, you start taking more applicants, anyone, and so a lot of these standards started going much lower and you started seeing a lot of problems when the bar passage rates. And this is a national trend that they've just been struggling with. And there's a there's a wonderful website called above the law, and they track a lot of these bar results in just have been atrocious. And, you know, there was there is there was a push by a lot of legal institutions, and this was the sort of pushing pull is that legal institutions need students in the seats. They need them paying tuition so that they can fund something like Vermont law. School is eighty percent reliant upon current student tuition to keep them. Elves afloat. And so if the students aren't in the seats, the law school can't function, and so they need to keep people in the seats and you know, it was pushed towards well, let's loosen the standards. Maybe we won't require L sats anymore and other people in the profession were saying, wait a minute. If you do that, that's really, really bad. Because L sats these other test standards the bar there. Predictors will someone be a good lawyer will someone be able to function as within the bar, and that was really, really critical. And so you had people pushing back on this, and, and it creates this, this dynamic that, you know, it pushes people away in general, from from going to law school, and they see that this is, this is not an easy proposition, or a golden ticket to constant employment or even lucrative employment. So are fewer twenty five year old lawyers showing up in Vermont in twenty nineteen word? They weren't say twenty twelve. Yes. And by what percentage you have any sense of that? I don't have the actual numbers, but, you know, Vermont's always also been, you know, this is part of the Vermont, legal community, is that if you go to other states, and particularly big cities, you know, they have regular employment needs. And so you, you know, there's listings summer Societa chips that lead to jobs. There's a regular pipeline, Vermont has always been sort of a word of mouth state, and I teach at the law school as an adjunct faculty. And, you know, so I've watched students over the past five six years, and they, they get jobs, people who want to be a lawyer in, Vermont will always get a job. But it may not be in the first three months after graduation may not be in the first six months after graduation. People may have to take another side job until they comes through when they make that connection and they get hired by whomever, whether it be a private firm, or the state government, or the defender general's office, but. You know, people do get jobs, but it's just not that normal sort of employment pipeline, and you have to stick around you have to be willing to sort of ask several people and, and some people just aren't prepared to do that. And as a result, I think, you know, when, when there's other market factors that play those numbers started depress, and so the bottom line here is, let's talk about sort of what the problem is then because one of the things I was looking at I think was an article by a successor of yours as president of the Ron farm association. Gary Franklin writing in the VA journal, I believe it was, this is the weakest goes. So my memory may be a little foggy, but talking about worries that, you know, it may be actually difficult to find a lawyer in, in either currently or in the coming years as finally the older lawyers, you know, off into the sunset or move, Florida or whatever people do and. And all of a sudden, they're just less legal help around this is true. It's an access to Justice issue. If there aren't younger lawyers coming in taking over these roles, you know, there are fewer lawyers available. And that means when people do need a lawyer. They may not have access to one and we talked earlier about the fact that this is gonna hit, and is hitting rural communities. I take a town like Northfield, which is not particularly rural. But when I started practicing. Sixteen years ago. There were six lawyers in Northfield. Now, there's basically one and a half. You know, people have not taken the place of lawyers who have closed their shops in various, towns, and small communities of the other four and a half lawyers retired and, or any of them just move away, and take jobs in the big city or anything or is it really more retirement? Some have retired some have stopped practicing some have slowed down, or, you know, have diversified, when I say a half, I mean, you know, one of the lawyers does lobbying most of the time so, you know, his private practice work has gone down substantially. He's not gonna be able to take the cases that he wants was. You know, these type of, of changes that are just survival changes for some of these lawyers. But they the population of Northfield hasn't changed. The legal needs of Northfield haven't changed people shift and look further north. But even in a city like Montpellier, you know, I'm seeing where I practice. I, I see a lot of changes in that city's practice community in that, you know, firms are starting to dissolve and the older lawyers, you know, either retire or they, they form like a little small part time practice or but you don't see younger lawyers coming in and taking their place. I remember years ago, twenty thirty years ago, probably I saw statistic, and I was never sure of its reliability. But maybe more of a rumor, I don't know. But the, the mafia supposedly had the second highest number of lawyers per cabinet, in the country, courses, small, capital that had the underlying population has a lot to do with. Any reading per capita second highest in the country behind Washington DC, so yeah, I've heard that as well. And I've never actually seen this study, that would would support it. But, you know, part of it would be that most of those lawyers would be employed by the state, so it would be, you know, general counsel at an agency, or they would be the deputy councils or, you know, they might be lawyers, but not really work as lawyers. But work in state government and policy positions, Jim. So, yeah, I mean, I think there there, there were it's just it's when you go into any of these towns, and you need a lawyer as a private citizen, they aren't there. You know, I, I also wonder sometimes whether the. There's a little bit of I don't eating your own seed corn going on here because because of the way law firms of operated over the past few decades in the sense of wanting to employ fewer people. There's a lot of technology that has come in, in, in the legal profession where, you know, years ago, I heard really within the last ten years, I'm hearing lament that there just aren't as many jobs for young lawyers as they used to be because of these changes. That's true. And, you know, I think there's also, you know, bringing on associate in a firm setting, you know, is an investment, and a lot of firms haven't a lot of firms you get partners. They're very smart capable people. And they carry their case caseloads. And they act like little independent law firms within a law firm. And nobody says we, we need to be training, our successors because it takes it takes a while. When you graduate loss. School. You're not ready in most cases to go out on your own. You're not ready to go into private practice. You need training. You need to build your client base. They often call it the book of business and that takes five years at the I think, at the least unless you come in with some advantage, some reputation or some background it's gonna take five years to get up to speed and be ready to be sort of a lead partner, and a lot of these firms haven't invested in that because they, they said, well, we'd rather take the money for ourselves. And you know that's perfectly legitimate. But there you wake up one day and everybody in the offer is over sixty five and nobody wants to bring on Societa at that point. And then you're faced with a real question of succession, and, you know, the bar association has long been talking about this issue was when I was president, Gary is clearly picking up the torch on a lot of these issues. I can tell you my Kennedy, whose bar council regularly lectures on these issues, and it's, it's, it's really it's a coming sort of gray storm that we have to. We have to be aware of and part of the answer may lie in, in saying, well, you know, we have to redefine, just as medical profession has done redefine the role of lawyers and paralegals and other legal assistance. And how can we get people to have access to Justice and in that respect the court has started to look at this, but there really are no quick, easy answers because you're talking about a number of different factors here. I mean, even with us talking about the graying of the bar, that's only the sort of top of the iceberg. There are all these other issues below it that are not easy issues like student debt incentives to get young people to move to a state, that's by and large struggling with that across the board. No matter what the profession is, as well as challenges to the legal profession technology. You know, the, the lack of resources for people to afford lawyers. You know, these are all playing in together, and they all make very difficult. Puzzle. Yeah. It's it's early. Sounds like hey, listeners out there. If you have any questions you'd like to ask about this issue, you more the world to give ring two four, four one seven seven seven..

"The for. Radio Vermont, it's the Dave Graham show on WD. It's your show about the people places, and the issues that matter the most to you. Now, here's your host, Dave Graham. Good morning reminded his Tuesday, June twenty fifth two thousand and nineteen. So glad to have you with us this morning on the day Graham show here. WD EV, FM and AM. And we have some interesting topics to cover today. We're going to have a visit in a little while from representatives from Ben and Jerry's homemade the famous ice cream maker with the big installation, right here, plant right here in Waterbury, who I think it for long time it was Vermont's number one tourist attraction. I don't know if it still is. But I suspected might very well be continue in that rank. And they're gonna come by with some folks who are artists who are who are formally incarcerated talking about using art as a way to express themselves. Get the get their lives back together. And smooth the path of from incarceration back into regular society in the second hour of the program today. Dan Richardson's going to be coming by. He's our regular legal analyst. He gets on the show here. Probably every two or three weeks and talks to us about recent court cases, and that sort of thing today's got a slightly different topic. We're going to discuss which is the aging, Vermont's lawyers states legal Qadri is getting pretty gray around the around the temples, and we're actually getting to a stage now where we have more lawyers in their seventies and eighties than we do in their twenties, and thirties, we're gonna be talking with Dan Richardson about what the what that means for access to Justice and, and are people going to be able to get a lawyer in ten years from, now when they need one, if most lawyers have gone on to retire cetera. But, but first, we wanted I wanted to bring in a guest this morning was willing to join us on short notice. I always. Appreciate that. When people can can jump into and respond to recent breaking news that, obviously keeps the show good topical and, and we can actually get to things people are talking about over the water cooler this morning. One of them is this allegation. They came out the other day from a writer by the name of e Jean Carroll, who who charges that President Donald Trump raped her when he was not yet president, he was is back during the mid nineteen ninety s at a department store in New York is story. She tells and you know, these are these are tough, tough situations where you where you always seems to be two sides here where you have people who are trying to cast out on his alley. These types of allegations, but as, as I hear frequently, especially for women, there's really no nothing, huge to be gained by for MS Carol, for instance for coming out and making these statements. And you know she's probably not having a better week this. This week than she had a couple of weeks ago before she went public. And so, you know, that's just one of the aspects of this thing. But yesterday, the president came out in an interview with the hill, Capitol Hill based newspaper and website in which he said that his response, and it's kind of a classic thing. I've heard this before from when when manner accused of rape, and the comet is quote unquote, she's not my type, and when I hear that in, when I heard it from somebody in this exalted position of president of the United States, it just strikes me as as, as a bit a bit galling, but I'm having trouble articulating why. So, I decided to seek some help on our ticketing why. This is a real problematic response to this kind of allegation and joining me this morning, on the phone from berry is an ward. She is the executive director of the sexual assault crisis team of Washington county and maybe. He can put it into words. Spend the night seem to be able to y that particular response, which, again is something people have heard. I think most people have heard this, this comment, quote unquote, she's not my type in previous cases. And this is what the president of the United States, said yesterday and ward, thank you so much for joining me this morning. And what is it? What, what is it about this particular type of comet, which, again, I suspect, you've heard this before. Right. I mean, this is the kind of thing that gets said, this is not the first time let's put it that way. It's, it's a pretty common respond to an alligator. Unlike this disclosure like this, and they're two reasons why it's particularly problematic. One is that it it's just that rape. Or sexual assault is about it's about sex about the body. It's, you know, it's, it's potentially a consensual sex act, and it's not sexual violence is. Really about power and control and domination and harm. And that's really different from attraction, and, you know healthy sexual behaviors. And the other piece is that he's a sensually saying if she were my type if somebody were my type than yeah, sure it's possible, because that's, that's an okay behavior or it's, it's potentially that person's fault or if they look this way, then it was an engaged behavior. It was a consensual act. I guess I mean, that's what that's one of the things that really bothers me about this. That, that. It seems almost to be a further attack. At least verbal attack because essentially what you're saying. I think what, what he what he's saying when he saying, she's not, my type is that, you know, he thinks that she's unattractive for instance. And, and that's just another insult really, isn't it? Degradation in keeping keeping her down making her less important, which is more power and control. You know, it's, it's, it's sort of a gas lighting behavior continues to cause harm, and it's one of the reasons that making a disclosure, like this is so incredibly hard, and that many people do not come forward and talk about the things that have happened to them. And I mean that, that is part of the, I think part of the domination, also is that is that the preferred mode, you know, what the what the dominator is looking for really is. Silence. And, and no no real reaction at all. And so two to add this insult to injury. It seems as though that's just part of the same game in a way isn't it? It's, it's really making the disclosure, sort of laughable, that would never happen. How could that possibly happen? That person is so unimportant, and it's so unattractive that, you know, nobody, nobody could believe that they would be worthy of, you know, my sexual prowess and my domination. And that's you know who, who wants to have those things said, who wants to come forward and say, this really horrible thing happened and have people not only say no, it didn't. But also to make fun of them and say that it wasn't even possible that they just weren't worthy of somebody, harming them, one of the things that I I I've commented on this program before that extra weight gets attached to utterances from certain people, and the president of the United States is storage safely. You know, whoever is filling that particular role giving. For here. Puree. Your period has historically to some extent been been a model for behavior in the society at large is that would you say, what do you agree with that? I would and does that add to the add to the problematic nature of this of this incident. Really frightening? How on one hand. It's on one hand, good that, we're, we're really having these conversations. We're saying that these beliefs, exist out there, that, that people are property. And you know, if they look at certain way than they, then they agree to experience harm in their lives, and it's okay. And nobody should be held accountable for it. So in that way, I it's an bring it to the service that we can really start to deal with, it confronted a culture, but it is also really, really scary, because we're seeing we're seeing people more than me, people who do believe that in who are, are saying. Yep. That's true. And, and potentially adding those. Saviors to their own life. And there seems to be this, this, this sort of sets of license. That, that is implied here as well, as you know, in the famous access Hollywood tape. It came out just before the twenty sixteen election in which the president, of course, famously was talking about how if you're a star you can do anything. This is the tape in which he acknowledged guess grabbing women by their private parts and so on and, and, and all of that. Behavior was okay. And, and it, it strikes me that on the continuum of this of this sort of behaviour, both of these things would fit wouldn't it, wouldn't they. This is our opportunity to say it's not okay. And if there are folks who are listening, regardless of what the disclosures are violence against other people sexual assault doing something to a person without their consent is, is not. Okay. And what we know is it is incredibly harmful and. Last two, you know, the impact can last a lifetime for people and the impact, you know, radiates out into the community and causes extreme Harmon and that's why I have a job. That's, that's the work that we're doing here to be available to folks because it is so rampant in our community. We, we see sexual assault on a daily basis. You know, it's prevalent out or culture. There is there any evidence indicating that this kind of behavior increases after comments like this from a prominent public figure could be, you know, we've we've seen the, the access Hollywood tape. And with this thing. The president of the United States. But, but certainly, you know, there are some, some sports figures entertainment figures and others who who've been in the in, in the similar spotlight over time. Does does that does that give anybody green light out there? Does there's, there's a level of empowerment of, of folks feeling like they they're part of something that maybe the rest of the culture doesn't understand. So, you know, I might be here saying this is wrong, and they're absolutely people out there saying, no, that's ridiculous. You know, we're sexual creatures and we have these urges, and we can do what we need to do. And actually people like it, you know, their, their belief systems that exist that already that can be empowered by this kind of behavior, but not just that what's happening is, as these things are happening in the media, and in, we're seeing, we're seeing more and more of the harmful things being said, very, very publicly and people saying it's okay or no. It didn't happen. And don't degrading the people who are making the disclosures. The harm is happening in individuals at home who maybe never made a sculpture, or considering making their disclosure in telling their story and saying, here's what happened. Nd and they're listening potentially to friends who are making light of these things that are happening, or agreeing or questioning or really digging in and saying, no, it probably wasn't true in this person is in it for, you know, they're making the disclosure for the long reasons, and so that's hurting people right now who are out there who have an experience of sexual harm. And, and they're seeing the cultural response to be something that it's just a digitally harmful. And so we see we see a response when things like this happen from people who have already experienced violence and need support to understand all of these feelings. And why if feels like the world is just saying it's your fault or it didn't happen. Or there's something wrong with you, or, you know, it couldn't have been raped because you aren't attractive enough. You know. So it must have been here fall. Those are really, really hurtful. And you know in. Packed entire community. So we see that my guess is an ward. She's executive director of the sexual assault crisis team here in Washington county. She's here to respond to comments. President Trump made yesterday he had another. I guess, there've been more than a dozen to twenty I'm not sure the exact number allegations against him by different women over time that he is committed sexual assault. Rape it cetera sexual misconduct, various types of descriptions, over the years just last week. A writer by the gene Carroll long longtime columnist came out with an allegation, that Donald Trump had had raped her in a department store in New York, where the to happen to just bump into one another. They sort of knew one another got into a conversation than and MS Carol Lynn, rather, harrowing account tells us that, that they ended up in a addressing remarry where we're, we're Donald Trump raped her and. And his comedy. He got gave a response journalists yesterday who were asking him about this. According to the hill, the Capitol Hill, newspaper and website. The president responded in part by saying, quote unquote, she's not my type as in I wouldn't rate for, because that's the reason and. You know that, that, as I mentioned, at the top of the show, that just strikes me galling a lot of levels. And so an ward is helping us to sort all that out this morning and pre she'd you and staying right through the break here..

"Good morning. Jackie. What other industries should we tell our kids to aim for? Oh my gosh. Well, first of all I was shocked by the number of healthcare jobs on that list. Almost fifty percent. So healthcare is a big one. Also, you know IT related positions. I think app development was number one. So a lot of these more technological kind of industries are a big one as well. Okay. What about I was surprised to see that legal marijuana and hemp was also up there? Yeah. I mean, that's certainly increasing. I think maybe with the rise of medical marijuana. And obviously it legal in many states now. So I think that is definitely something. We'll see continued to increase. Okay.

"Thank you Kelly six twenty three now, the weekly map produced by the US centers for disease control and prevention shows, increasingly scarce places where influenza has not become a widespread problem in some very hard hit places entire. School districts have been shut down to avoid an out of control epidemic. A flu epidemic has hit every region and flask Tennessee valley school districts. Let's talk a little bit more about this right now with ABC's Jim Ryan who joins us live the morning, Jim. Good morning. Yeah. The centers for disease control and prevention, I'll teach these numbers. Every weakness numbers are few days old, but they do show that in nearly every state in the union at least thirty six dates are showing widespread flu activity or lillies flu. Like, you'll MRs you know, they can't verify they can't kneel down as flu until tests are done after the person's already sick. So it's they just call it. Flu like illnesses or influenza and pneumonia. Then yes, California is among those states, Dan, showing widespread activity in every state around. It is as well Zona, Nevada and Washington Oregon to the north of all of them showing widespread activity, and it's especially difficult thing there in California, of course, with so many people and people close together and people sharing germs and now they expect these numbers to go up over the next few weeks. Okay. So is it that the flu shot didn't work this year or that not enough people? Got it the ladder. The CDC tells us Christina that this year's vaccine is very effective. Against three strains of flu that are floating around out there. So they've got that pretty well under control. It's not a so the vaccine or virus is going to mutate this year the way it did a couple of years ago and kind of sneak past the vaccine that would set out early in the year. This one has been shown to be very effective, and we're approaching well almost halfway point in this flu season this year. So is it too late to get a shot? If you haven't gotten one already know in effect, if you haven't it's a good idea to get one because not only are you likely to protect yourself from getting the flu if you do get it, then you're likely to have much less severe symptoms and less likely that it'll be a long duration kind of infection. So yeah, it's not too late at all. And that medical professionals are recommending that anybody who hasn't especially the young and the old that they go ahead and get vaccinated now. All right.
