The Larger Significance of the NPR-Sotomayor Story

"I'd like to talk about the larger significance of this NPR story about the Supreme Court and masking. I wasn't going to cover the story. I thought it was kind of dumb. But Debbie's like, no, people are talking about it. You should cover it, and I want to do it in a way that draws out. What's really going on here? Because you see the essence of fake news. And it started out with Nina totenberg, the kind of longtime court reporter of NPR. Saying the following, she said that according to sources at the court Sotomayor did not feel safe in proximity to people who were not masked. Nina told mug reported that justice Roberts, understanding that, quote, in some form as the other justices to mask up. And then says tort, they all did, except Gorsuch, who as it happens sits next to Sotomayor on the bench, is continued refusal to do so has meant that Sotomayor has not attended the justice weekly conference in person, joining by telephone. Now, this article was just picked up because it suggested this kind of, wow, even at the Supreme Court, you've got all this insider Garfield going on over masking. So right away, CNBC was all over at MSNBC, CNN, and then of course all the pundits began to weigh in. He has made a Hassan. Why is it that the public figures on the right who claim to be pious Christians and believers and morality and decency turn out to be awful awful people? So you got the statement and then all the speculations on top of the statement presuming, of course, the statement to be true. And then justice Roberts put out a statement basically saying I never asked the other justices to be masked, boom. And after that, this was even more unprecedented. There was a statement that came out from Sotomayor and Gorsuch. So what are my says? I never asked that gore such be masked. I never, I never made that requirement. Gorsuch said I never heard anything of this sort from the chief justice has never been any such rule. The whole story was made up. The whole story was lies. Now, the killer. Here's a Nina totenberg tweeting after all this after three statements think of the how unusual it is for three justices of the court to come out and directly dispute all of them, saying the same thing and say meeting Nina totenberg's reporting as follows. You think she'd be like eating crow, right? No. Quote, NPR stands by my reporting. In other words, the three justices are liars. Either that, or some analysts have tried to cover her by saying that in an original report, she said that the judge Roberts quote in some form as the justice system makeup as though in some form means he didn't really. He just sort of implied

"tort" Discussed on The Eric Metaxas Show

"You said, how did life evolve from non life, right? Okay. Now, whether you believe in evolution or don't believe in evolution or don't care whatever it doesn't matter, because I don't write about evolution in this book at all. But you have to define what is evolution. Evolution, according to those people who believe in evolution, typically, is using the process of natural selection, you see change over time. What does that mean? We hear the standard story, right? If there's a bunch of giraffes and the ones with the longest necks can get the most leaves and they tend to survive, the drax giraffes with shorter necks, we call them oxen. They don't survive. I shouldn't joke. But the point is that that's the concept of evolution is that over generations. Species change, and then some people say, oh, species don't just change within species, but they actually can become other species. So a frog can become an oak tree, although it takes a huge effort on the frog's part, he's got to want to be an oak tree. But the point is, in all seriousness, evolution can only happen if it does happen with life. Yes. But we never ask the question, and this is what you were getting at. What about before there was life? Scientists say, on the planet, earth, 4 billion years ago, there was no life, and then suddenly life. Boom. There was single celled life. The simplest life imaginable is one cell. That's all you need, and it's life, and we've seen it. We know what it is. And science tells us without any blinking. They just go, there's no doubt life came into existence 4 billion years ago on the early earth. Okay, so here's the question. How did that happen? And what's funny is people will say kind of like you did in misspeaking the way I put evolve in quote. Thank you. My notes. So people say, well, it's the process of evolution from non life. And you say, there's no such thing as evolution from non life. If you want to have any kind of evolution, it has to begin with life, because life reproduces and in every generation, there's potential for change. And so there can be change over time. But we're not talking about that. We're talking about there is no life and then there is life. There is no way you can describe that as

Professor John McWhorter Explains Why 'You Are Not Racist to Criticize Critical Race Theory'

"And the headline of his piece on his own site. As you're not a racist to criticise critical race theory dismissed those pretending that if you don't like what's happening to our schools, you're a jingoistic moron who doesn't want kids to learn about racism. And it's It's a long article and in the article He points out, and he calls the elites the Allex. E. L. E. C. T s Says the elects commonly insist that critics of CRT would feel differently if they read actual foundational articles about it. But the issue is what is being done in CRTs name? Not what some articles contained decades ago. Early writings by people like Regina Austin, Richard Delgado, Kimberly Crenshaw, who you'll all learn about in American Marxism. Simply hard leftist legal analyses, proposing a revised conception of justice that takes suppression into account, including a collective sense of subordinate group identity. These are hardly calls to turn schools in the mouse reeducation camps. Fostering star chambers and struggle sessions. Actually, they kind of do do that, But let's go on. However, this indeed is what is happening to educational institutions across the country. Moreover, it's no tort to call it CRT in shorthand when these developments are descended from its teachings. And they're architects openly build themselves as following the tenants of critical race theory. In language terms evolving quickly Witness of late how this has happened with the cancel culture and even woke to insist that CRT must be properly referred only to the contents of obscure law review articles from decades ago. Is a debate team stunt, not serious engagement with a dynamic and distressing reality. It is a debate team stunt. And that is exactly what Chuck Todd is all about. Here's a debate team person who is filled with stunts.

There were all bad and he had them on the ice and he told them all to shot up and he started You know pointing singling out each guy. Okay separately and telling the guy what's wrong with them okay. So they're all standing on the ice and he and he would say Your brutal okay. You're minus eight. You're no good defensively. Okay and and so you're looking at this. Jesus managed to be embarrassing. But you know it's the big bad world fourth. And so what i'm gonna do is i'm going to skate for you. I'm gonna do two laps as fast as i can around the ice you right.

If i give up the puck you know if i if i don't make a pass if i don't play the breakout right or something you know. Stick to the penalty kill plan. I might get benched and mike pence i.

But i'm not a fucking hockey coach either. don't well. humiliation is definitely something that's The can be effective as a consequence. You're not doing things the right way. And you get humiliated by way of either being benched or getting screamed out in front of your peers that can work in the short term but you will one hundred percent of the time lose. The player like that player will resent and hate you for the rest of his time. And maybe tortorella doesn't care about that stuff or the types of coaches that that You know push all the buttons. But i feel like is calm down a little bit for compared to where he was ten years ago. And he's a smart guy ever listened to in interviews He's when he's in the the standard postgame stuff eighty now.

Houston city council member weighs in on the possibility of lawsuits against ERCOT

"Cleanup and assessment of damage wrought by last week's freeze power outages and water infrastructure issues continues across the houston area. Plumbers will be busy for a while. Some folks will have repairs to do. Others are still awaiting the ability to have access to clean drinking water particularly those in unincorporated areas of town still others are just trying to get back to at least our new pandemic infused normal that includes efforts towards vaccination. It's in that context. We welcome back houston city council member edward pollard from district j. in southwest houston which includes the neighborhoods of gulf sharpstone. Braise wooden belair. Anything you'd like to know about that district or houston city politics and government or anything. I was just discussing is welcome at seven one. Three four four zero eighty eight seventy or talk at houston matters dot org councilmember pollard. Welcome back to houston matters. Good morning good morning. Thank you for having me. How'd you fair this past week. Well it was definitely a challenging week. We went without power for three days. my home had no structural damage. But my parents My mother's home. She had a busted pipe. They can't do the ceiling. Water got in the house and then in my father's house the same thing happened. A busted pipe and water in the house has the currently move out and live in a hotel for now And so we've been dealing with Really trying to Not only get my family Back to where. They need to be focused on a lot of the families. Within district j who had similar circumstances what assistance or guidance can you offer any city residents dealing with cleanup lingering plumbing issues leaks struggling to find the plumber waiting on insurance estimates. Any anything you can offer on that front. We just have to be diligent yet to understand that everyone is calling the insurance companies plumbers and contractors at the same time. And so there's extremely long waits. And i know it gets frustrated So you just have to really just stay diligent Being courteous and understand that help is on the way. Our office has been able to assist residents within district. Jay and trying to direct them to Different resources and so. There's anyone living in the district j community. You can always reach out to our office at district. Jay houston t. x dot up and we'll do what we can't listen to this. I don't know if you caught the discussion just before you came on but we were talking about how Some efforts to sue urquhot could end up potentially a waste of time as though it's a nonprofit it's one established by state government. The texas supreme court needs decide if it has sovereign immunity aside from being on houston city council you own a civil litigation law firm pollard. Legal group if someone came to you seeking to sue urquhot or the state or centerpoint or anyone else over what happened last week. What would be your advice. I would definitely look into it Because right now based on pending litigation at the supreme court level. I i do believe that there will be some opportunities to push forward With a tort suit against urkel other entities. Just because there's going to be a question of whether or not they knew or should have known of what was going to May happen and so because of that There may be a window open for those who Needs to pursue claims based on the damages to their home or or to their persons. And so i would definitely look into the facts of each case and see if there's something there because i do think that there will be a window open for individuals to file claims.

Return to Dyatlov Pass

"Nineteen fifty nine. The bodies of ten young students experienced hikers and skiers were found in bizarre and puzzling ways strewn over a forested mountain tap. Their deaths would remain a mystery until a week ago. I kid you not. This is the story of the die off pass so again starts in one thousand nine hundred fifty nine. There's a group of early twenty somethings. They're all in their early twenties from like twenty two twenty three to one thirty eight year old outlier to kind of lead them has a little bit more experience under his belt. And they all study at the euro polytechnical institute and it was an organized skiing expedition across the euro mountains in the soviet union. Eager deitz lov. Three year old radio engineer was kind of the leader who assembled everybody asking nine of his college friends. Eight men and two women to join up again. I'm sorry if i mispronounced names. I'm bound to do that. Even deitz love pass. Was his stretch for me so again. Apologies in any case. All of them were experienced great to hikers with lots of skiing experience. Also it was kind of going to be a high scoring hybrid trip. And when they returned all of them would be receiving their grade three hiking certification which is really impressive. It was the highest certification available in the soviet union and required candidates to climb over a hundred ninety miles. The route was designed by dight loves group to reach the far northern regions of spurred lofts oblast and approved by the sverdlovsk city. Route commission even though it was supposed to be the most difficult time to take that route. The goal of the expedition was to reach a tort in our which is a six point.

Colomer dorota rustam slobodan nikolai thebault bre goals alexander and your yudin all left on their expedition. The group arrive by train at dell small town in the middle of spare lofts ups done two days later then. They all took a truck to his high where they bought a bunch of bread and carb loaded for the next day's start when the actual hike would begin as they hiked one. Member your yudin. Who suffered from several health ailments. He had rheumatism. And a congenial heart defect decided to turn back his knees and joints for giving him a pretty hard time. It would be a decision that saved his life on january thirty first. The group arrive at the edge of a highland area and began to prepare for climbing. They secured food and equipment. There that would be used for when they would come back through the next day. The ten plan to get over the pass and make camp for the next night on the opposite side but bad conditions snowstorms and decreasing visibility. Made them lose their direction and push the group more west than they had planned when they realized that they were more west than they should be. Group decided to just set up camp right on the slope of the mountain rather than move a couple of miles downhill to a forested area. Which would have offered a little bit of shelter from the weather. Diaries and cameras founder on their last campsite possible to track the group's route up until this point which is really a really profound part of the story to see their writing and to see the pictures they had a camera. The film was developed after the fact so it feels very very spooky in that way and they're all so young and very positive and optimistic and really excited about each other. And the you know exploring the mountaintop the group had so much ahead of them and they talk about what they were studying and how that was significant to this expedition but unfortunately that night would be the last day that they would all be alive before leaving on the expedition. Dight love told the university sports club he would send telegram no later than february twelfth on the twelfth passed and no messages have been received there was no immediate reaction because it was pretty normal to encounter delays etc but on february twentieth. Travelers relatives demanded a rescue operation. And the head of the institute sent the first rescue groups consisting of volunteer students and teachers

New Hall of Famer Calvin Johnsons Next Chapter

"Hey mike thanks for joining me man. Yes so hooley pablo. I've been wanting to come on the show for a while. Michael rothstein is espn's detroit lions beat writer and he's covered michigan sports for more than a decade. Well it's your time. Calvin johnson weekend just wrapped up and you covered him during his nine year. Career with the detroit. Lions and calvin johnson was just elected to the pro football hall of fame now officially establishing him as one of the greatest receivers players of all time. So what's the reaction been like from the himself. Calvin johnson's not somebody who gets emotional. Ever if you remember him during press conferences during his time in the nfl he wouldn't say all that much. He's a very quiet guy but you could see on the video that they showed on the nfl honor show. He got emotional. He started crying. You started tearing up five years. Anything i want to see to my peers city unfolds. Keep stacking good the top of good days. It always going to be perfect. The volume striving for probation. No you you're gonna be alright so this is clearly an emotional moment for a player that often didn't get a ton of attention for being as good as he was because of the teams that he was on johnston touchdown detroit. Linebacker cut staff to tort. Lines god yeah and the team that he was on the detroit lions. He made so much news mike at the time when he left the game back in two thousand and fifteen remind us why and what happened. There was a multitude of factors but the biggest wind. It was that he's body was just breaking down on side of retire based off of my body film. The way i feel mentally and all those things working together one you know my job is kissed ball. You know someone catching the ball when that kinda hurts another flat his fingers and this is a podcast so people can't see it but like his fingers are bent in like all these different directions. His finger man. This is something else People like otherwise. You put down social media on things like ashley wearing away. I had dinner with him probably a year after he retired and we were sitting. There were talking. He's telling me about his fingers. And i was like it's that finger right. He's like no. It's this one. That's how beat up fingers were was that the mangled finger that was going the different direction. That was the good finger. Yeah that was the better finger and beyond that if you remember dancing with the stars pretty soon. After retirement a play professional football us would have detroit lions. I'm on dancing with the stars. Because i wanna prove my sister. Sister lily told the world. That could not dance. We'll have to redeem myself. He almost had to quit dancing.

Smaug: Ransomware-as-a-service drag(s)on

"Was caught in our collection and it was sort of identified to be A. Somewhat. Of A new. Grant somewhere as a service that we haven't really seen much of A. Analysis about it you sort of decided to sort of dig deeper into it. That's yellow keen Kennedy, and what we found I was a third of a quicksilver report around the initial panel that has been found as part of its Announcement or advertisement on the dark web but we couldn't find anything around of the malware. How worked thinks that's a now when we actually had a sample. We could actually take the time. To. Find. Out How it operated what it did if they did something different compared to others over ransomware dose south there, and then sort of wanted to go ahead and. Put the whole picture together and do an analysis based on the threat actor was behind it, and where it sort of is announced on the dark web and what they're stalling sort of potential. Customers. Would as we want to say what do you can do with it? Well. Let's go through the research together first of all in terms of the threat actor who do you suppose as behind this? Out Now, that's a very loaded question Sorry. No. Not at all. That's rory gold. Unfortunately, it's quite difficult to really pinned on you know who this person is or where perhaps they come from. The few flags I mean for instance, there was a rather within the original post on the the Russian dark web forum it says that targeting any CIS as in Commonwealth of Independent States is prohibited. Resulted in media ban. So that might make one think okay. You know maybe it's a Russian or it's a Russian speaking actor but to be honest whenever you sort of whenever you dig through the panel and even look at the screen shots that they present you you can see that there's mountain characters hidden within some of the ransom notes. So, to be honest, count, really come off the fence on this one and can't really give it any sort of attribution but you know there are certain things that might make you think. Well and you you suspect that it's a small team behind this. Yeah. We we will be of the opinion that would be a very small team at least two people can't really put a maximum on it but. Wouldn't imagine it would be particularly large team our large effort behind him. Well. Let's go through it together. I mean the story SORTA begins, with, some forum. That you all tracked down take us through the story here. to essentially after you came find sort of some public facing stuff displaying the panel. Displaying the Displaying around somewhere as a service thought, it was for sale I look through some forums that I would know generally used to sell these sorts of items one form in particular a Russian language one. So I went through the forum I search tort and it was easy to find actually. As you can see anybody that looks at the block you can see the original hosting You know it's fairly generic. They give you a link to the tell you all the things does you how can figure it is it gives you the price it gives you the service fee. So Yep. You know as a starting point that was a good space to go with. Yeah, it's interesting to me to see the posts that you share here kind of the salesmanship that that's on display here also, a very good use of English. Yes suspiciously good use of English because obviously this is the this is the initial offering of around somewhere but if you take into the profile. Of the actor, well, we'll just call him coriander because that's what they're using. If you dig into their user history within the forum. I think it was maybe four or five months before the smog offering there was a post looking for a front and. You know they wanted somebody who was fluent in English and they're willing to pay two thousand dollars in Bitcoin. This post itself was written. Rather broken English, which of sort of contrast with small offering which was in perfect English grammatically. Then always. So the the distinction between the two would leave us lead us to believe that there were in fact, at least two different people you know an English speaking from deaf and then somebody else in the shadows as it were. Well, let's dig into the The ransomware offering itself can can you walk us through someone who engage with them? What sort of thing would they find themselves able to use? Unfortunately for businesses and individuals out there it's actually rather easy to do this. And the initial offering. It gives you an onion link to the website that smoke is hosted on. Once you click through to that. Url, and you go to your presented the fairly generic registration you put your email in generate a password confirm your password security code. Once, you do that. You get a confirmation on century mill address pretty quickly. From there, you're given a bitcoin wallet address. Ask you send your point to Bitcoin. So that address I'm once you're there, you know your you're. You're essentially you're good to go from that point. You can immediately go into the dashboard. That the developers created. If anybody looks at the blog. Photos of it it's actually I would argue it's quite a nice Ui. It's pretty clean. Rather. Sparse. Does what it needs to do. and honestly from there, it's just point and click you don't need to program anything. Really don't need to do anything at all you just you know come up with a campaign title. Whatever company you're targeting like the BBC or something you call it BBC. Sedative business model. So it'll it'll in fact all the computers with the not network but only needs one decryption code to release all of them or if you really want to be nasty, you sense it under the regular mode, which means every single computer needs its own decryption key. You can generate around some message saying you ha ha you've been postponed semi to this bitcoin address? and. There you go. You just click the create button I'm not saying you're away.

"As our guest today at. Why don't you go first and Offer US your obiter DICTA for this episode of X. Very Much Robert Again. I just want to thank you for having me. I've been talking to Hillary about getting on the show for a while and I'm I'm I'm glad I finally found an exclusive particularly in these times. It's nice to have a human contact legal subjects as opposed to other perhaps Less HAPPY MATTERS. But my obiter free focuses. I've been very fortunate in that. My employers are Publican and I have no worries about my paycheck being cut off. I know many many Canadians currently and Cova da in the covert nineteen environment are not nearly as lucky and you. The reality is as being home a so much. I was doing my budget the other day and the reality is is. I'm not spending as much money on going out to the bar or other activities which is sad for my life but I what I wanted to encourage people to do is if you are fortunate enough to to be at home and still drawing your full salary and and not having to worry about the vagaries of Your Employment Situation Food banks in a number of cities are struggling. They're struggling because of the limits on their operations because of lockdowns and restrictions. I know in in Toronto. The Daily Bread Food Bank is continuing to do its work and so my nonbinding recommendation is if you are fortunate enough to be at home and not worrying about these struggles. Maybe a chip in a little of that money. That would have gone to the to the daily Coffee Ron or to the bar restaurants and support the food banks because you see some of the unemployment application numbers coming food. Banks are going to be busier than ever. And I think are those of us who are lucky enough in this particular pandemic to be at home and and not have any of those anxieties about About rent or mortgage or whatnot. I think we have to do our bit even though we can only do it from home pouring some of those extra dollars that we don't need for the bar. The restaurant to the food banks is is a smart use of that money. And I've been doing that every week and I. I would encourage everyone if they can to do so. I think it would be a big help to our communities that that is an excellent and laudable recommendation non-binding though it may be thank you for that David Hillary. What what is your opener for this week? I'm just laughing to myself because it's not the first time where someone has gone immediately before me with their really altruistic selfless unlovely obiter and then I do something like completely you know silly and mundane but there you have it. That's just the luck of the draw I totally echo. David says sentiment but My obiter is in relation to two ways to spend your evening. If you're looking for something to watch. I know a lot of people have more screen time these days so there is a CBC documentary based on the Oland murders in In New Brunswick and this is a story that was big in the news in New Brunswick for the many many years over which the story unfolded so Oland.

"That justice co-chair tickets so it seems to me that the perhaps the more interesting part of the decision is a new tort that the court refused to at least strikeout as plane and obviously not part of Canadian Common Law. And that is this tort. That's based on customary international law being part of Canadian Common Law. So what was your understanding of how the majority of the Supreme Court came to fine that there is at least potentially a claim as part of the common law in Canada Someone can can claim is based on a breach of customary international law if one wants to frame it from a policy perspective. What Justice Abella attempted to fashion? The majority was to say. Look there are these international law rules that every civilized country accepts as being nonperishable peremptory. Were just not allowed to do the genocide torture slavery crimes against humanity. Nobody debates that these This conduct is acceptable and so the chain of reasoning is these are peremptory norms in Canada. We have a doctrine of what's called the option of the of customary international law which means it's adopted wholesale into Canadian. Common Law saving except were parliament expresses statutorily a contrary intention and that the logical bridge the Justice Abella Build. Is You need to have a remedy for that. Somehow because there can't be a right without a remedy and there is a I confess there is. I don't WanNa say simplistic but there is a nice sort of normative justification for that chain of reasoning. And and you know. Sometimes when you're studying law school they teach you can tell the way the judgments going in the first two sentences You know in the old more denning tradition while with Justice Abella. It didn't take long to figure out what way she was going. Because she talked about human rights arising as the Phoenix from the ashes of World War Two a conflict for which Justice Abella has a very personal connection a through her family so from a Norman of perspective or not. I don't think there's anything one would find objectionable to the idea that yes these are things that we all agree as humankind or bad so therefore there ought to be remedies for but once you start scratching past that feel good moment of there are no end of problems with With what the majority propose as being sort of stand alone. Torts or other wrongs. That are actionable in our courts by virtue of of their existing custom and there are all manner of policy and legal considerations that that really question whether this is a wise course. I mean for example. It's one thing to say. The norm says Thou Shalt Not Torture. It's another thing to say. Thou shalt not torture and thou shalt be entitled to Remedy in Court of any country. That's one doesn't necessarily at least as a matter of international law follow. You also have attention here that that That is not one. That's really well developed in the judgment although justice row and just as bro in a row and Brown go some down the road and it's the say this a lot of these norms that the supreme court talks about exist in international treaties as well and without trying to give an entire lecture a years worth of from international law treaties and custom or the two pillars upon which international laws built Canada. Jessop JESSOP flashbacks. Here's here David and so you should. In our former coach. Anthony Davis will is probably chuckling if he listens to this. But there are treaty and customer the two pillars of international law and Canada has ratified and implemented in some cases a number of treaties. That speak to these issues for example. If you WanNa talk about slavery I think that was the example that that Robert was using the starting point. Well slavery is prohibited by the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. Canada has taken certain positions in the UN system in terms of how we've implemented our obligations under that treaty and one of the things that Canada has not to do is to prescribe any form of civil remedy in connection with violations of the ICCPR. Now I should point out. That's not our charter allows for damages for breaches of charter rights. If the Canadian government were to engage in slavery like practices there would be a whole host of remedies and tools in our law but where this gets more complicated and this is something that's foundational to international law. More generally traditionally international law has been about regulating the conduct of state actors whether as between themselves or between the state and their nationals or citizens or people who live in their territory what the Supreme Court has done is taken a tool that was built primarily for state to state or state to individual relations and is now trying to graft on private relations that is to say Nelson and the workers in a retreat or any other number of instances where a Canadian person or corporation abroad may come into contact with another set of private actors abroad and quite frankly that's not something that international law has ever really thought about. It's not the purview of international law. Because again it's prototypical dealt with state to state or state to individual relations the power that we restrain from the state so that we all enjoy liberty whether in peacetime in times of of of Cova nineteen but the point remains. It's there to restrain the state while creating towards about restraining the state it's about allowing recompensed by one private actor against another private actor and and so those concepts don't map onto each other a very well at all because it's one thing to say yes torture. Bad Slavery Bat. We can all agree on that. But the the sort of what international law calls the second order rules that is to say the rules of attribution and liability. Those aren't necessarily the same as what exists in a domestic legal system which is deals with more common torch like battery or assault or or negligence. Those don't map onto each other very well. So that's that's the real. Rub here cindy it seems like there's there's always this analog between customary international law is sort of seen like the common law and then treaties are seeing lake statutory law and my understanding. Was that the position that was really maybe articulate by the respondents before the court from reading it. I think it's mentioned in the the descent of of Justices Rohan. Browne was that no. But we really want is you'd recognize four new nominee torts. That are going to be part of Canadian. Common Law which go hand in hand with these customary international law rules and it wasn't the idea that you're going to have a tour of breach of customary international law per se. But rather it was. Let's draw from customary international law unless recognized that you know slavery is different than forcible confinement. Torture is different than battery. There ought to be an recognition in the common law of that fact that that's not okay and I'm curious as to why the majority wouldn't have gone that more seemingly limited route to get to their answer but at the same time I do think when you think about what these base level norms of customary international law that get to this level to reach the the test articulated by the majority they are so fundamental and these are these her so things that are so accepted in its. There's no no debate about the wrongness of these things that I wonder how in a common law wouldn't recognize those as being illegal. So how much of a disruption is this really going to be? Let's break down a couple of things here because I think there's a there's two debates that can happen here and and they're important ones but they kind of come at it from a different angle and what I mean by that is this. I think who has to be the most concerned about what the court did. A Nevin is obviously any Canadian Corporation. That's operating in a country where human rights abuses are rampant or at least not insignificant. Because the if I was draw high level conclusion from Nevis. And it's going to be that if you if you're conducting activities in a country where their human rights abuses and you may come into contact with people whose rights are being abused. You may be held liable like the abuser or maybe found to be contributing or be the abuser yourself and given that Canada's air resource dependent country with a lot of resource corporations that that might not be an insignificant part of our resource sector that might be exposed now on a policy level. One can say that might be a good thing. Maybe we do want Canadian. Companies to sort of. Have this in the back. Or Front of their minds that You better be careful where you do business because it may not be Smooth sailing we've seen cases the more recent example wasn't a case that was brought here but they're trying to enforce here and that's the Chevron case with the workers and Ecuador whose villages were destroyed in the environment into because of oil extraction activities there but to go back to the other side. The other sort of way to look at this is the is the legal issue and that is to say. Is the Canadian legal system going to be comfortable with creating towards that emerged from practice first of all? That is not necessarily Canadian. Because we you know one need only look at recent. The recent INCREM- only incremental expansion of Torts to deal with privacy courts in Canada have been extremely reluctant to expand and create new torts. I think because impart the judiciary has a sense that this is probably best left to parliament in the legislatures if if someone is going to create Or or articulate wrongful conduct the judiciary seems to have perhaps for good reason a fair bit of self restraint. When doing that. The other problem all is that again. It's one thing to say torture. Bad genocide bad. The question though is where. Where was that norm? If you're going to take a norm in international law which is primarily directed at the conduct of states. It may not map on well to a system of civil liability which is designed to hold individuals legal or natural to account for conduct. So you may find that some international law rules don't transpose well into sort of domestic domestic litigation system particularly when you know and in this case formed on convenience is no longer an answer but the offending conduct happened in a richer and this leads the question of whether international laws treat it as fact or law and that's important because there's nothing that stops people from suing in Canada for Conduct. That happened in another state but the default rule in port is the law of the place governance. And you prove that factually because the law foreign countries is not taken as a given you have to prove what those laws are you have to call experts and other individuals who could speak to the legal systems of foreign countries if international law. It's different in international law. It's treated as law. You don't have to prove it. But as just as bro Brown and row point out a trial judge in Canada may not be well positioned to fully grasp articulate all the nuances of illegal requirements for finding torture Or for determining what is slavery in an international context so there is a subtle but important distinction. That if you start creating torts that are based on the common common law system. That's predicated on international law. You are taking out of the mix an important factual element in establishing a record to develop a nominee new tort and without that Factual Rocard Trial Judges could stumble into all manner of articulating norms. That may not be correct. That may go beyond what international law contemplates may not go far enough who knows but the subtle distinction between treating it as based on international law as opposed to foreign law is it may seem may seem subtle but it's hugely important to how the Canadian tort system deals with claims. That are factually premised on events abroad. So would it be improper to lead expert evidence than on international law? Well according to the Supreme Court would be and they cite the they right. They cite the writings of of a very learned Scott Canadian scholar give banner who's written some of the leading articles on it. And and give whom I know his point would be international. Laws treated as law. You don't have to call an expert with an affidavit to say this is what international law means. You've never had do that now. Some judges have done that because unfortunately our judiciary is always well up to speed on these issues and they say well. If it's not Canadian law you gotta prove it to me. Well that's not strictly speaking correct and the majority of the Supreme Court says if it's international law you don't have to prove it by way of facts they it's treated as if it's like an item to be judicially noticed and that's You know if you're talking about building a record for establishing Norman newnormalnetwork Horton Canada. But you're saying because it's international law you just take judicial notice of it that could lead to some very undesirable places from the perspective of the Canadian Tort System but we're not doubting that form nine companions is applicable to these new towards. So you'd have to have a connection a real substantial connection to Canada right and also the legislature could. This is these are torts. There's nothing stopping legislature from changing enacting a statute that would remove this tort liability right. That's absolutely correct. But there's an interesting problem there and this is This has come up in an issue that Hillary and I have written about before the federal government in Canada as a general matter has no power in the tort system in Canada. There are certain exceptions..

"Secondly d think it would be actionable anyway It will be defamation. 'cause is defamation is just a lie. Isn't it if it isn't defamation? Because it's true therefore it is false. It is definitely well no my taken. It was a defamation as defined in the season I knocked. It's a statement that tends to injure a person's reputation in the eyes of reasonable members of society. So the way the I actually got I was thinking about this. The entire time is reading the case so if my radio the case seems to be worse than usual. It's because I was thinking about this so basically injuring the person's reputation so in this case braces reputation is being an alcohol drinking party animal injured by suggesting otherwise and reasonable members of society. If you could argue thought say there's such a popular influencer. They've sort of large range of followers. That that's reasonable members of society. I see where you're going. I would like to think that if you got that case you could argue it. But I don't know I'm not. I'm not a qualified lawyer but even if I wasn't soon walked into my office with this call holly now for novel detonation. She'll try this could be donahue and Stevenson moment and you're not even willing to hear me that's all I didn't. I just wrote down a sentence on us. It's interesting. What if your reputation is reputation and that benefits early this month as well but like there'd be obviously criminal issues like what if your reputation is like a drug dealer and then it's revealed like you're such a good person you pay all your taxes. I feel like lifting. Nation is the least of your problems in that. That's new but would like say if you like. I don't know maybe if you get acquitted on your criminal charges you like Hey. I've got a defamation case. I don't know I mean. Marlin is a classism Israel. Kids because there's no freely delayed for US regular folks we don't we don't have enough money or income to Earned the right to a good name. It would seem so. She's never considered that in that in that sense before that so interesting. Oh that's all I can think about is like if you're on a very high socio economic standing. Defamation isn't really like what you're thinking of a name doesn't matter well it's like. I saw an article that was egging. You know if you're nauseous of such a high standing. You don't need to worry about reputation I don't know I mean it's such like like classism like sometimes like it's actually in the legislation if you know what I mean or it's not in the legislation rather like normally or things like rick classes in Minnesota somewhere like Ireland. It's much more social to go looking for with. This is very blatant. Also just don't say don't tell lawyers obey people because it will come back to get you but also offer you know. Also it's not defamation if it's true so if it's true don't worry we'll also that doesn't mean you don't just run your mouth. They said No. This isn't like an excuse on no gonNA listen to this and then you can read your eye. You can run your mouth if it's true. Well let's treat I. I'm truth is Oh hold Defense to defamation. So as long as it's if it's true it's not defamation. I mean yeah. That's kind of all. I hardly are really enjoyed this episode in terms of research a recording Nelson much. Because I've been sitting under a blanket for an air and it's very warm and not the worst problem. In this time of crisis I suppose definitely or even in Ireland and marriage in general always been cold and Patrick. St toasty is a joy. Thank you so much for listening.

"Goff and that's the case of Stella Liebeck and here. She proved that McDonald's had been negligent. I think some interesting things to note from this case. I thought it's definitely not the first case of its kind. It wasn't even the first case. Her lawyer had taken a boat. Hot Coffee spilled into McDonald's drive-thru said the fact that we're talking about it. All is kind of a fluke because the media picked it up And the two million since crazy. But I think when you consider that it's punitive damages on the fact that she didn't even get two million in the end. It doesn't sound like crazy to me. What do you think Cali do? You think it's just absurd or see it's so this is my issue sometimes with torch when discussing like absurd damages quote unquote is that. It's so I mean param in like a personal like emotional ham and things like that is so on. Quantifiable an abstract and intangible. It's really hard to say like you were like really upset for a year. This on one year of a negative emotions equals two hundred thousand dollars like Disney woman of fresh. I mean given the circumstances I dunno is eighty twenty the rice contrary negligence place. I think the money okay is okay but I think just in terms of control negligence. Ib Lean towards more like seventy three she because like I know they save the Coffee Hauch Bush and like I know people sometimes like leads are hard to take off but like she must have really like been giving it. Walid to take off that list. Like I'm not. I'm not saying it's our fault completely. Exhibited magazines is like you'd have to question like the brief force whose impacted upon that Coffee Cup to get the cream and sugar in. I don't know you're you're very much in line with. There are a lot of people who disagree with this case For that exact reason which is that while the coffee was hot. It wasn't like it was not a ridiculously high temperature. That's unheard of in the coffee industry. I was like genuinely hundred degrees Celsius boiling. I'd say something else. Yeah like a lot of Like detractors from this case say that like if it if it had gone before a different judge it probably wouldn't have even gotten to jury stage because the coffee just wasn't high of like it was not a high enough temperature on there have been jurisdictions where similar cases failed so in the UK. There was a case. Bogle and McDonald's restaurants into those nine to where a similar lawsuit failed because the court rejected the claim that McDonald's could have avoided the injury by serving the coffee at a lower temperature. So there are people who think that like because the coffee was not an unreasonably high temperature. It's kind of like a frivolous lawsuit. Definitely a stately. What the media painted ause. But I have a quote from the American Museum of Tourist Law which claims to be the only museum in the world dedicated to And I really WANNA go there. New ROAD TRIP. They said consumer advocates say the distorted narrative picked up speed because business interests on some lawmakers used it as a way to create public belief that frivolous lawsuits were common. And that you're evert were running amok all in an effort to a tort reform agenda in the United States that limits consumers limits consumer's ability to hold wrongdoers accountable. So basically the only like the only people who benefit from the headlines. That like. Oh this is crazy. They got so much. Money are big corporations like they benefit from not having to pay these big amounts of money and the consumer. The little guy doesn't so I don't know I think it's different in terms of like insurance and stuff that's more of an actual issue but in terms of like big companies paying big money. I'm going back to what I said. In the EU law episode of Boohoo. Big corporations having to pay money when they probably fleas people all the time people so then. That's where I was gonNA leave it until I thought to myself. I wonder if there's been a case like this in Ireland and Google. That and it took me straight to an Irish Times article from Thursday January Sixteenth Twenty Twenty. Ooh where women was awarded thirty thousand after a takeaway coffee spill caused brains so just listened to the similarity Fox. It's actually spooky. A twenty eight were apart from their age. A twenty nine year old woman whose ties in crossroads scolded when coffee spills on her in her lap on Donald drive-thru takeaway Talkin in Dublin has been awarded thirty euros worth of damages in the circuit civil court so like basically the same facts. She spelled it on the same part of her body in the same restaurants. Drive through I would speculate the injuries I similar. Because I don't know that you if I'm going to carry them to open something. I'm pretty good between my knees try. Yaakov deliver my hand. Yeah well actually I interesting. In this case she wasn't even trying to open it. She was just she just put it between likes to pull polite of the drive through and the lead came off on its own but the reason but also like it. Didn't it also didn't mention whether this car had colds or not which I thought was interesting. But the reason she was successful specifically was because Judge Comerford in this case accepted about the McDonald's training policy of providing a cup carrier with every hot drink that was handled. Eight of the service had been breached by the staff member involved. I'm because of this breach like obviously breach of duty to the customer. So that makes sense. Yeah but more interesting thought. Obviously they're trading policy has not changed in response to these kinds of lawsuits. If they're like they're handing a thing with coffees that you to prevent you putting it between your legs. Essentially I thought that was interesting. Was there a contributory negligence? In the Irish case curiosity it wasn't mentioned Like she got thirty thousand. I don't think there was any contributory negligence. There was there was argument Because her car had like McDonald's were saying it was cold she'd started pulling forward but in the C. C. TV footage it showed. She didn't pull forward until after she started being burned like she jerked on the accelerator by accident. Once she started getting bird so I think that was it was more like an evidentiary issue but the judge was happy to award her. Thirty thousand Just for like the injury alone. It wasn't punitive or anything. Yeah so but obviously that could be appealed off Tony. In the first instance so we don't know what the final figure will be there but I thought it was an interesting comparison very interesting. Is there any other drive? Three chains are having the same problem or is it just a McDonald's the I'm sure I'm sure they are. I didn't look but the morrow I picked for the story was that negligences everywhere. Negligence is everywhere. Everyone every food chain every business. Every individual has probably seen some sort of negligence issue So yeah it's everywhere. Now you can keep your eyes out because you know what? It looks like stay vigilant people and then my fun. Moral the story was the food's not dangerous thing. Mcdonald's be careful with your coffee. Sometimes I the more I took from it was a car with COQ holders. Yeah yes on a more and more important of coffee between your legs. Even even if you're not going to take the lid off Newport like even if it was not even a cup of coffee but like even water Bartlett and I was in a car and I needed to do something like drive away or even holding something for someone else. I would just put it between my knees. So problematic dangerous business. Yeah so that's my half of the PODCASTS anyway negligence. Thank you defamation..

Wade and my sister actually got an abortion and my parents never knew about all she had to do was go to court and say that would be mentally difficult on her interesting yeah like I'm fascinating and then that seems like a really big bar though I would be if I was a thirteen year old girl going Horton saying I want an abortion we are not from working out she had a she had to go in front of a judge by older sister well wishers so yeah that was huge but I am I used to be a single issue voter which this was my issue I'm completely positively pro choice but I and I'm listening to you I don't normally do because you are so divergent are used but this is going to probably place you can make you wonder about me because the left has gone so far left that we gonna vote for trump do you hate me no no I I'm kind of curious what it what is the issue that he stands for that thank you you would embrace no issues probably crazy border security but you are usually a one a one issue person which would be abortion so I'm I'm going against my one issue you know the one the most important issue to you that you voted for years on you're willing to give up just because you think he has the best ideas the only idea that will work along the border in for trade well listen to you yes I think it's I think there's a compromise is what I'm trying to say I think that there's other candidates that would have something that would be more of a compromise that would not yeah you know means right to choose no I hear I agree here I could vote for a ticket of of you know they hate each other right now judge wait we're H. H. N. Amy I could vote for that ticket but there's nobody else up there I could vote for okay well then you could go over to the judge and and Amy then I mean I just feel like if you're one issue that issue if it's a woman's right to choose is very important then you should try to find compromise a candidates that want that like will also want to work on protecting the border maybe not as extreme as trump people that want to work on trade I mean although trades done so there's no real risk there but to put it to compromise well you've said yourself was when your most important she's a woman's right to choose to vote for trump who was literally threatening that for so many women surprises me it just it doesn't surprise me I know I and I understand that but I'm not completely sure he means that he was pro choice before he ran for president tried that get that rescheduled well I mean I know he he was left locks on a lot of the issues but I'll cross the country we've been seeing this thread on its right to choose okay what I would ask you to really read a lot about a lot of Democrats are for border security they just the wall is not the way to the wall doesn't protect us what protects us or good ideas technology and manpower on the board yeah I'm so glad he's doing now he wants to throw thirty billion dollars for structure because it it makes his his it's it's a it's a **** thing you know and maybe it's a male thing and we have to stick so stay with me over the next few months let me see what I can do with you okay okay I'll be more your phone calls come out and say with Nikki because she'll be in the morning as well all right eighty eighty eight ten will get to you guys next Bernie Sanders as little moments in life.

Practical AI Procurement with Shane Zabel of Raytheon

"On the topic of buying procuring. Ai How how. How do you think you know? From a vendor perspective. I think could be a big consulting firm it could be a hot silicon valley startup. Whatever the case may be could be? IBM How should business decision leaders. Here's a decision makers think about screening vendors deciding on vendors. What a good ways to think about that? One Way I think of that is the standard make by it kind of decision. So if you've if you've got a business strategy in AI technology strategy and you've broken that down into the elements and you kind of understand what what type of capabilities in technology we need to develop. You're going to make a decision in terms of what should you build in house and what you outsource. So that's where we're really starts is understanding within the I field. What are the parts that that you want to build internally? Where do you think your your key? discriminators are going to be. And what are the parts that You do not want to invest internally and you may be better off outsourcing to vendor so then at that point there's a there's a lot of vendors in the space right now and there are you know and which is a good thing it gives you a lot of opportunities but you have to be able to filter through it and so it can be challenging to even understand understand what the entire market is who are all the players typically if you have an ai organization that you've spun up that would be one of the roles that they should have is understanding understanding what the commercial market is And vetting going out meeting vendors understanding the vendors and doing the initial heading for it and that should be aligned because the the market space is so big that should be aligned to that original discussion. About what parts of the market are you looking to partner with. and which ones are you you know building internally and and so that that kind of decides what companies that you want to go after and then it's just your standard vendor vetting process that you'll go through typically you'll be. He introduced to accompany. You'll set up an initial discussion Sometimes it helps to get some type of non disclosure agreement in place if you if they passed the first test of back and then then you can go into more technical details and and typically both your business teams in your Engineer your technology teams can have those further discussions wins. And and then it's you know goes from there depends on whether you're looking at us a supplier or whether it's a partner and I don't you know to some extent of that that whole make by question isn't really different than the AM L. World. It's just the technologies a little bit different. I think yes. There's still does you have to be the the the context on the technology but I've definitely heard a lot of takes on. He build by side of things certainly have our own opinions here But I'd be interested. Sit in your thoughts. It sounds like for you. There's there's maybe sort of a core way of thinking about that. I doesn't necessarily vary you kind of brought it up very briefly mentioned you know. Is this really your key distinction. You know something you want to build in houses a core capability. That's going to differentiate you and be what your your business really leans on as like a critical capability ability so to speak on. This is something you don't want to invest in. Maybe you could put a little bit more color around that you know how you think about build versus buy at a high level and why it's not that different from from other technology. Yeah so I guess the way to the thing about it is if your business strategy and you're a technology strategy figuring out where you fit in the market Arken space and and what is it that. What part of that market space do you WANNA be mortgage leading in? And there's a lot of components to ai and machine learning and you may not want to tackle the most so so one example would be your data strategy If you are not in if you're selling some type of marketing product or you're selling some type of you know Engineering Service or something like that. You don't you don't WanNa be in the development of a data lake Business right you. Don't WanNa go off and build your our own daily technology. That might be a great place to partner. Because that's not where your core discriminator is. It's an enabling technology that you have to have but it's not something that you're going to go out and build you know from a data. Data Lake frameworks perspective. You'RE NOT GONNA go build a business around it so that might be an area that you would want to start thinking about. Maybe I need to go find a supplier partner on the data lakeside. Whereas you know in some other areas that you might look out with you look at the end to end a I? Kind of chain. You'll focus in on on a few of those areas that you might Might WanNa be a discriminator and you and you may not from technology perspective for some organizations you you may not you may WanNa partner for all of the technology and that you're discriminators maybe as some type of integrator or maybe you're up your packaging peace so it's hard to say specifically typically you know it really depends on the specifics of your business. What are you going after? What do you want to be good at and then going out and finding partners that provide the capabilities that we need to pull together in order to provide those services so sort of Hugh you mentioned just? I'll put a little bit more color on this pivot right into the next question is around. What do you want to be good at is that is that a retake that to to understand that sort of if something is something that we want to be good at all? We really want to be good at. Let's say understanding Customer's preferences for these fashion products that they're they're kind of related correlations of sort of what people purchase when they like this thing like this other thing. Are you saying. There's a shot that that might lead us more in the direction of developing our own kind of recommendation and customer understanding models versus leveraging recommendation. I'm in Dacian Vendor X.. Or wires said is that sort of a potential leaning based on on on what you're saying. I JUST WANNA make sure I'm digesting the idea. Yeah I think that's that's a good analogy. So if we take that case if your if Your Business was understanding customer preferences you might want to be very good at understanding. The psychology of the customers is. You don't really want to be very good at understanding products You might be one be very good at having the data scientists who can do the modeling around that at that point you may go off and develop develop specific algorithms for it potentially if the if the open source algorithms aren't good enough for it and in that case. Maybe you don't want to your. You're you're focused purely on cloud infrastructure right. That's that's not where you're going to add value to so you might go off and partner with a company that can go off and handle your cloud part of it. That's an enabling the technology that'd be required for you to go do machine learning towards customer market preference. But you'd outsource that because you want to focus your energy research and development. What's your talent development around those other algorithm ICK areas around those data understanding areas around the customer understanding areas and those maybe would be areas that you wouldn't want to go off an outsource because that's court here company and that's that's where you want to build your core discriminators at so that's kind of that that that what does the term discriminators actually just something? I haven't heard people use that particular word but I now am sort of understanding and context What you what you meant by that and I guess that tort takes us into our second major question here which is around getting into the proof of concept a lot of Peo sees in the enterprise world right now are not really leaving? POC THE OC land. They're not leaving the sandbox on kind of coming into reality. Maybe sometimes it's because to your advice. They haven't they haven't yet built that internal Lehai capability that you mentioned. That really understands the market knows who to talk to who not to talk to. What would be worthwhile or a waste of time but if you were to talk about maybe going about? POC's the the right way. Let's just say maybe I do find a partner. Maybe it's it's somebody works on fraud models you know I'm that I'm that online fashion retailer. I don't really want to get good at detecting fraud and it's not my business. My business is selling you know necklaces and earrings. Let's say in that case. Maybe I I go into a POC. There's clearly a raw kind of kind of a right. It says to have Sarong set of steps or right understand wrong way to understand it about setting up a POC for success so we have our best chance of turning into something real. How would you explain doing doing it? Well as opposed to the common pitfalls you see I typically when I look at P. O. C.'s. I almost don't think of them as being a direct path to production auction. Ai and machine learning to put it into production requires a whole infrastructure. It requires process. There's a big gap between companies. He's they can build prototypes or individuals. That can prototype on a laptop and companies that can deploy that and maintain those models in operation yet. Yeah that you've got it you have to have your business processes around it you have to. You have to understand model testing. There's there's a whole series of capabilities that that are required for production machine learning that are not required there for so so what. POC's are good at is a couple of things right. They're very good that Education and understanding getting into the data and understanding what you really have. And where's the real potential business benefit. They're very good at use case. Space exploration right towards that business side. But at some point you're going to make a decision. Do I want to transition to this and ops into into operations and with the understanding that there is a there is potentially a significant investment of time and resources that's going to be required to Redo the POC or or leveraged bridged POC and extended into a production model and so at the end of a POC. You I would recommend that you have your your profit and loss people all your organization take a look at it. Have your technology team make an estimate. Here's what it would take in order to put this into production and then make a return on investment decision. Asian at that point is is this something worth putting into production and maybe halfway through you should have checkpoints in your pse should be continuously asking this question is this worth continuing wing or not and you may have to do multiple. POC's before you find that one killer use case that you really wanted to pull into ops and but when you get it right there's there's potentially actually a great great benefit to it. That's why everybody is going after this but it's it's hard it's it's a super hard. Yeah

Cup champion’s celebration painful to those who didn’t win title

"Joey Logano the Defending Cup series champion and from twenty eighteen. He had a couple of wins coming at Las Vegas and Michigan to start the season there. And let's hear from Joey. Let's say these banquets aren't really the same after after you've won it and you kinda notice like to see your car plastered everywhere and your team and everyone's having fun together these awards and nobody wrong. I'm glad we're a national and things but it really stinks for the competitors that come to a bank with that you didn't win because it's just like another reminder that you got beat and that's not much fun. I don't really like that part so usually I say A new leave the banquet that night. You really wish you can raise the next day because that's about the most motivating thing you can do is go to a banquet that you didn't win because all you want to change that and you want to do as quickly as possible but you you gotta wait. They'll daytona to get going again so I'm not really looking forward to tomorrow night now. Giuliano who just missed out on being the final final four yet again here is. I don't know I guess there's there's there's a lot that comes along with it. A lot of responsibility comes along with being a champion but I kind of expecting that and tried to prepare myself for that The Best I could hope I do a good job But I I thought it was a very special opportunity to you know you. Can you go meet the president and he go. You know the visit all your sponsors. It's a huge deal and what it meant to be able to win that championship. It was it was incredible is an amazing experience. Last year was the most incredible year of my life thinking about championship and Hudson being born and all that happening in the same Muir's is nuts so I didn't take it for granted. I promise you I enjoyed as much as I can also still trying to stay focused on winning another one. Unfortunately we came tort. But again we'll go out of the year so joey they're not too happy to be at the Nashville awards banquets not being champion. That was rough. Offer him yeah. I think that's always a bad feeling when when you were the champion the year before and you come back and you're not champion again and it's it's rough. You only know one way at that. Point once your champion nearly well. That's what I expect at this point and so when you fall short of that of course can be disappointing and for a guy like Giuliano. WHO's just getting into his prime? It's just just at the very early parts of his prime of his career and he should be getting better for the next few seasons as hard as that has to believe with how good he's been That had to be a big Gut Punch but but He had a good season and in the end of it he had a shot to make it to the final four. Just didn't quite have enough. Here's a world record holder now. So that's cool. Yeah the hot wheels thing. I was pretty cool and that's a long track. Can't take that away.

J&J's Lawyer Shares Her Thoughts on the Landmark $572M Oklahoma Ruling

"In Oklahoma a judge has ordered the pharmaceutical giant Johnson Johnson to pay five hundred and seventy two million dollars to help address the opioid crisis in the state in his ruling yesterday county judge that Baldwin said the drug maker disseminated false misleading and dangerous marketing campaigns that led to exponentially increasing rates of addiction overdose deaths the drug maker rejects the ruling and plans to appeal and Sabrina strong as an attorney representing Johnson and Johnson in this case and joins me on the line this morning thanks so much for taking the time for us of course after trying you I know you have argued that Johnson Johnson did not break the law here you're planning an appeal I'm I I just wanted to start with one of the core things the judge said we did the company have a marketing campaign saying that there was a low risk of abuse and low danger and prescribing opioids no the the marketing that is done with respect to these medication is entirely governed by inconsistent with FDA regulations and so I it's important understand that when folks are out speaking about the drug they're doing so consistent with the risks and benefits that are described in the FDA approved a label okay but even if it was done in what the company believes within the confines of the FDA label I mean there was evidence presented in the trial of of sales reps basically downplaying the concerns of physicians about the addictive qualities of of opiates even if you think that this was within the FDA guidelines are making that argument what was that happening no I don't believe that the evidence of why is that at trial and what we do know is there was not one doctor not one Oklahoma doctor was brought to the stand to say that they were misled by anything a sales representative said and that it impacted the prescribing decision and cause harm to a patient not one Oklahoma Dr there was not one patient or family member that testified at trial about any abuse or misuse related to a Johnson Johnson medicine there's simply no evidence to support those findings I'm so that some of the memos that came up in court that basically showed sales reps talking about addictive that these drugs not being the detective I mean you're saying they were misinterpreted by by the judge here there was no I I think that misstates the evidence okay there were there was no evidence it's very easy to make a broad brush statement about this and to make an allegation but we actually have to look at the evidence was presented at trial at no time was there evidence that anybody said that these drugs were not addictive they're black box warnings on these medications and they absolutely talk about the risk of addiction with these medicines there's no evidence to the contrary in the case whatsoever Johnson Johnson as I understand it hired the the good to be consulting company mackenzie to to look for opportunities to sell more of these drugs mackenzie had a strategy to to keep patients on some of these drugs even if they had an adverse effect because they felt that that they were helping with with pain and that that is one of the issues that came up do you deny any of that I mean the mackenzie was they're coming up with a strategy to sell more of these opioids no I think what you need to understand is when you are dealing with medicine is that you're trying to reach certain patients those patients who need the medicine and what this company is focused on is finding medication for on manta patient needs and so the strategy is is to find those patients find doctors who are working with those patients and to reach those doctors so that they can have access to the medications that they believe are appropriate for their patients remember these are prescription medicine nobody can access these with out a prescription from their doctor and that's a very individualized decision it's between the patient and the doctor to determine what's best for that patient and that is the only way in which anyone can lawfully obtained these medications we are bringing up I mean a question that might come up as as this goes forward I mean are you basically saying that if a doctor prescribed these drugs and if they have been approved by the FDA that relieves the companies of of any accountability responsibility and in a crisis like this I think the question is what is there something that the company did that was wrong for example misleading marketing and if so did that impact any prescribing decision did a doctor rely upon it and did it cause harm acts of this case are no to all of those questions there is no evidence that there was anything that was misleading you started out I asked me a question about whether there was a campaign to mislead and what I explained is that the FDA label sets forth both the risks and the benefits of the medication and everything with respect to the evidence the trial demonstrated that the sales representatives were trained extensively on these issues simply on compliance and that the evidence is is that when they spoke with doctors they spoke about both the risks and the benefits of the medication and it's up to the doctor to decide who is the appropriate patient for these medicines and ultimately write that prescription for any given patient so it's possible that a sales rep might have said look at the risks and benefits this could be addictive but not so addictive that you shouldn't prescribe it for for pain I mean that might have been one of the things that the judge was looking at in talking about what what he described as a marketing campaign I was at the trial every single day and there was no evidence to that effect what what next now I mean is is are you a hundred percent going for with appeals or is the company considering settling at some point it within I mean as a matter of fact or long there's no basis for this decision you've asked me several questions about the facts but they're also significant legal issues here this is really a radical departure from a century of case law in Oklahoma nobody is ever utilized a public nuisance in this way and so this decision is fundamentally unsound it as a matter of law and fact and there's absolutely no basis for liability so yes I think it's it's fair to say that we are very much focused on preparing a pile of papers and look forward to having these issues considered by the Oklahoma Supreme Court yeah I I wanted to ask you about that the public nuisance laws I mean just just just the name sort of states what the intent is of lawmakers which is to protect the public good you you've argued that a law like this is simply not applicables in in coming after a company like Johnson Johnson terms of liability what explain to our listeners why out of a law that's supposed to protect the public good would not be applicable here this is the law that is intended in Oklahoma for over a century the court to make clear that this is about property disputes when someone misuses their property and causes harm to another that's what we're talking about in the remedy that's available under public nuisance is to abate that nuisance to stop the conduct that's not what this case is about and that's not what the plaintiffs are seeking here the state is seeking damages here so this is a law that completely unethical and applicable there are decades of case law certainly that have been developed in tort and product liability and the state has completely jettisoned that case law and try to focus on public nuisance something that has never been done before but these are these millions of dollars used for an abatement I mean if these were not damages the company's painted I misunderstand these are damages I mean abatement would be asking the company and the judge could order the company to stop engaging in certain conduct that is not what that issue here the ruling says nothing about white J. and J. ought to stop doing or or do the the ruling is ordering the company to pay money for the harm is that at the state believes it has suffered and that the they need to address the harms that the state has suffered look at this is a serious public health crisis and it's something that needs to be addressed but litigation is not the

Are the US and Iran already at war?

"But let's start in the middle east where tensions have been rising between the u._s. and iran could the u._s. Already fighting iran indirectly israel has struck hundreds of iranian targets in syria defense experts say it has recently expanded those operations into iraq with the blessing of the united states. Here's our middle east correspondent eric tort check. It was israel's regional cooperation minister sake henegbi. Who said it the knife you davos <unk> personal time for two years. Now israel spain the only country in the world killing iranians. He told the public broadcast dot com last last month. Israel has been heating uranium targets in syria way iranian troops of fighting alongside the syrian government forces of president bush allah saad israel says it also targets weapons shipments from iran to the shiite militant group hezbollah which also sent fighters to syria israel's air force enjoys always a superiority in syria and has an arrangement with russia whose air forces helping the syrian government that allows it to operate with relative impunity israel's israel's strikes at deadly for iranian soldiers hezbollah militants and occasionally. If assyrian soldiers posted alongside them all manning a defense batteries some some analysts say the strikes have severely constrained iran's attempt to entrench itself in syria and create a front line there against israel but recently israel's been attacking attacking iranian targets much further afield in iraq according to arab news outlets and domestic defense analysts iranian backed shiite muslim militias operate alright in much of iraq some came to fight saddam hussein others to fight the u._s. Military still more came late to fight the islamic state terrorist group. They've become a powerful entrenched iranian presence in a country that used to be iran's worst enemy. That's raised concerns in israel and the united states about about iran transporting ballistic missiles into iraq with a view to targeting israel and saudi arabia the reported israeli strikes targeted iranian basis which had received ballistic missiles smuggled in through food supply shipments and other covert means such as the new front in israel's ongoing quiet war against iran according to who'd you ari the middle east correspondent for israel's channel twelve one of the country's most experienced defense and foreign policy journalists as a result of one eighty percent of the campaign against the iranian military entrenchment in syria that that is very important now we see the iranians trying to compensate for their big losses in syria by establishing some some presence in iraq and israel will keep trying to demonstrate to them that the cost is going to be very steep sleep israel's attacks serve the interests of big players like the united states and saudi arabia which wants to counter iran's influence and regional ambitions the u._s. avoided military involvement in syria's civil war but ehud yaari says that doesn't mean americans disapprove of israel's attacks on iranian assets the trump administration prefers to if you want subcontract stopping the iranian expansion expansionists the movements <hes> do the israeli air force rather than do it with themselves. Always the cooperation author coalition may members the attacks on doubtedly have an effect both iran and syria have publicly acknowledged their impact although iraq has been silent about at the recent strikes inside its territory continued israeli strikes could be seen as another element of what the united states kohl's its maximum pressure campaign against tehran. It means the u._s. Supposing iran through economic sanctions and diplomatic pressure while israel takes complimentary military action even though attention has been dangerously high between the u._s. and doron after a tax on oil tankers and the shooting down of unmanned surveillance aircraft ehud yaari says both both countries would prefer to fight indirectly rather than risk open conflict. It is the real war that is. I think what we are seeing now. The kind of operations that the israeli air force is mounting the kind of reactions by the iranians. I think this is the real confrontation and it's not going to become an all-out flare other countries in the region of being much more cautious. The united arab emirates has taken steps to distance distance itself from its allies saudi arabia and even from the u._s. By sending delegations to iran and avoiding accusing the iranian military of attacking oil tankers his even though iran is threatening to further reduce its compliance with the international nuclear control deal at the heart of these current tensions european nations and its original neighbors have been reluctant to take any action in response. The debate about iran is not really about its nuclear program. If it was the u._s. would have remained part of the nuclear control deal. It's all about conflicts outside. Iran sport is the syrian civil war support for who the rebels fighting saudi arabia abia in yemen iran's funding and arming of hezbollah in lebanon and the aforementioned militias in iraq the u._s. israel and saudi arabia badly want to constrain constrain iran's regional involvement and it seems israel is the one taking direct military action to do so. It's something to bear in mind if you're concerned that a single misteps step in these tents times could lead to a war. There's already a conflict underway. You probably just haven't heard about it air torture reporting there from jerusalem.

Trump sees his base growing from Democratic sparring

"What is the truck reelection campaign trying to get out of the democratic presidential candidates most liberal stances more support from working class and independent voters Gabby or a politicos here with more Gabby how is trump and his team portraying the more it liberal democratic candidates well they're definitely looking for opportunities to highlight the positions that some of these democratic candidates have taken that might have less appeal among voters in the ideological center voters who might not be supportive of president trump but are also reluctant to increase some of the more liberal or progressive tradition of these candidates so the watch for how the trump campaign reacts to moments when the candidates are asked to raise all of their hands and supported something moments when they're asked to elaborate on their condition something like the green new deal a twenty dollar federal minimum wage these are the policies of the trump campaign is really looking to see how how Democrats handle them and handle these questions and to capitalize on their answers which voters are the trump campaign trying to specifically target and in what areas of the country you know some can be an official who told me that their main goal is to win over union households and white working class voters who are in the rust belt region where trump while in twenty sixteen but who has been who didn't support him in twenty sixteen and might be reluctant to do so now their entire goal is to run a campaign that speaks to those orders and that's why you hear them constantly talking about the differences between free markets and capitalism and the trump administration's economic policies and socialism progressivism and the policies that progressive democratic candidates are pushing it's it's a message that they think will particularly resonate with those types of voter it's either a no union households individuals who working hard labor people who pay attention to politics that might feel as though they are disaffected and and are wary as you know major cultural changes happening in America we're speaking with Gabby or a politico Gabby you talked about the green new deal and the twenty dollar minimum wages being a couple of the issues that the Republicans are seizing upon as being out of touch with most Americans are there others that liberals are pushing that they're saying no way well if you go back to the last two debates that we had in in June if there was a moment where all the candidates were asked by the moderates what moderators whether or not their government health care plans would provide insurance coverage for undocumented immigrants and everything okay onstage to reach their hands and that is a moment that the trump campaign sees Dante tweeted it out they shared across social media the president talked about it they repeatedly referenced it in digital advertisements it's it's one of those moments where they sell as though the entire stage the entire cast of candidates with out of touch with what most Americans would would want and the and the policies of most Americans would embrace and it's not just the term campaign that feels that way Rahm Emanuel the the former chief of staff for president Obama and and mayor of Chicago a huge Democrat published an op ed in which he urged the Democrats to not fall into those tort sorts of traps again when you're out there espousing that will you know we need to provide health care for undocumented immigrants there are so many voters and specifically the kind that wishes referencing core at home watching these debates and saying why should we provide health care for it people who came to the country without authorization when I'm facing an eight hundred dollar or fifteen hundred dollars off your bill every month so he said that it is necessary for the candidates on stage to be very mindful of their responses and the ways that they might be able to attract voters in the Italy ideological center or repel them with the answers that they get thanks Gabby Gabby or politico

"tort" Discussed on AM 970 The Answer

"I am Hugh Hewitt. And the president of the United stats is back on the land of our special relationship. The mother ship the United Kingdom, President Trump and Melania Trump. The first lady have arrived amid pomp and circumstance and some protests in the United Kingdom. The embassy right now, right before he took a shot at the mayor of London. Comparing him unfavourably to build a Blasio. I'm not sure that's fair to the mayor of London, even though he is kind of a bozo. But nevertheless, president in the United Kingdom. Getting ready for the seventy fifth anniversary of d day. They'll have a state dinner today. Lots of going to see the Queen all torts of good stuff. Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal, I was I was checking the ten year bond this morning as I told you on Friday. The ten year bond is the bond in which all interest rates are based, and that's home loans, and home, refinances, and everyone should go to Andrew and Todd dot com is talking about it on Friday, and the ten year treasury democrat two point three percent this morning at the two point one four percent, which I just don't think I've ever seen, and that means people are throwing money into the United States Department. They're just buying up treasuries in. It's driving on the interest rates which in turn drive during the interest rates to problem money in the United States. Very thought buying a home by today. But I then went over to the Wall Street Journal and found China Mexico signal willingness to step up trade talks with United States, China and Mexico, both signal the willingness to negotiate with Washington over escalating trade issues, while the Trump administration took to the airwaves to defend its use of tariffs. That was Sunday and that is going to be the big story of the week. The big story of the weekend was the mashed shooting and terrible tragedy. In Virginia Beach. I've got lots of friends and family in Virginia Beach scared. The heck out of me on Friday afternoon. I will not name the killer. This is the more. The worst part of living in modern America is our insane. People can get guns and then follows indeed. I was on the set of meet the presence, and they morning and Mick Mulvaney, very accomplished. Chief of staff of the white outset more laws won't do a thing. He's right. You've got to be able to spot these people and insecure them, and I don't know if they could spot this killer. But it the saddest dozen lives with former people fighting for their lives and prayers for them. But, but that was the story of the weekend, the story of the morning is back to the president being and United Kingdom and the meltdown, the Democratic Party if they go after Joe Biden, what is not the story, the story is not Robert Muller. If the report had been other than Robert Muller. Punting. It would been the story. Look, I was on meet the press yesterday. I want you to hear let me go find that the Hewitt, this is this is where we talk about Muller that Mick Mulvaney, just been on the set. I'm sharing that the panel. Chuck todd. Of course, is the host on my left is Kelly. Great reporter. I've traveled the globe with they're actually on across each on him. One of the country's great historians in early across from Kristen Welker, one of the really smart White House correspondents, and Mick Mulvaney. He's been on and checks giving him a pretty tough interview. And so Chuck comes to me from my reaction on the fact that the White House, and I'm going to fire anyone over the fact that someone in the White House ordered the McCain moved is a real five star dumb move, and the president didn't order, but it's still five star, dumb move, and Mick Mulvaney said, no, I'm when I do that some twenty three twenty four year old kid advanced team made a mistake. And so this is this is how it segues into Muller. Cut number four per se. You were struck by McCain stuff shock. You said that they said, no a twenty two or twenty three year old staffer and he won't be going up. Really struck me is when you asked him, why the tariffs rushed out the door to cover Muller and said, absolutely not. And I believe that the mullahs report was melting like paper machine the rain before all Mahler walked out, and I thought the statement like the report was irresponsible indecipherable completely inconclusive except the report Natick conclusion as did Muller. There is no concrete evidence to charge any crime of insufficient. Evidence insufficient different phraseology. Prosecuted. Right. So that's why showy responsible. Bob Muller knows. And I've sat here for two years during this leave them alone. Let them finish Bob Miller. There is no crime. So when attorney general, Bill Barr now, finally now, among conservatives Bill, the Honey, badger, don't care bar and said, we don't have a crime here, and it's over, you know, Jon Meacham, it's interesting watching Muller, Mark mazzetti, and Katie Benner wrote this in the New York Times about Muller. He said nothing in the president said everything he worked in secret allowing the president to fill the void with reckless accusations of a witch hunt. His damning conclusions were encased in dense legal jargon, and the president distorted into indication and in some ways Muller, I guess, tried to have a do over on Wednesday. Yeah. And the do over. Lack of clarity. It took a mulligan and hit it in the lake. That is one of the greatest quips I've ever heard on television, and I give all hundred Jon Meacham took them mulligan. And he hit in the lake about Bob Muller. And I, I gotta tell you, I will spend some time on mother's day Thursday, I was off when he spoke Friday and my voice wasn't very good. And it's the Friday show, which is all different. I'll have a piece in the post about it tomorrow. I went on make the press. Here's part two of my comments on Muller when Chuck came back around on the on the panel to talk a little bit more about a cut number five, actually, Kristen Welker said something about it. And I and I follow it on what she said, cut number five. It's not just the, the president. I want to emphasize it legal writers and scholars who are esteemed in our circles, as John among historians, Jack Goldsmith and Harvard. Many others have said the Muller report is exactly what his special counsel, should not do which is their job. Reach a conclusion, and as a result, judge lunatic, probably the most influential conservative, not serving in government was quoted in washed opposing lever allows unsheltered quoted as saying you can, you can't prosecute a president, but you can always declare that he's committed a crime and Muller, did not either in the do over or mulligan. It would. That was a little bit there that is the bottom line. And what I just I get wound up about this because the center, right? Legal world has got a conclusion, it's hardened over the last three day. The report was incomprehensible. It's actually indecipherable news organizations are divided on something as basic as whether or not there are ten or eleven specific back patterns reviewed in part, eleven that's how badly, it's written and it's profoundly irresponsible. Page two. Oh, eight of part, two of the mullahs report begins its quote conclusion because we have we determined not to make traditional prosecutorial judgment. We did not draw ultimate conclusion about the president's conduct. In fact, the special counsel implied, a very obvious conclusion, it he concluded that there was insufficient evidence that the president obstructed Justice or committed any crime attorney general Bill Barhoum I've not pointed out. It is being called Honey badger. Don't care because of his attitude towards the press made explicit that imply conclusion and the sidebar chatter on whether the president can be prosecuted had nothing to do with the bottom line that there was an insufficient amount of evidence to conclude that the president committed any try crime at all, by the way. Honey badger. Don't care some of you don't know what this is a YouTube video. I prepared the PG version. It's about the Honey badger. Here's the PG thirteen version, courtesy of generalissimo. This.

A Third Verdict Finds Roundup Caused Cancer

"The couple in this case are a couple of their seventies alva- alva- pill Yod there in the San Francisco Bay area and they've used roundup on their property for thirty five years, and they say that. That extended roundup us gave them both non-hodgkin's lymphoma, and this is the third award against Bayer. Yes, this is the third award since August in trials over a roundup safety the first back in August sent the stock reeling. And then there were two verdicts of both this month also all in the San Francisco Bay area. Also bear is facing a shareholder revolt connected to this since the company purchased Monsanto last year Monsanto makes the roundup weed killer urbicide at the center of the suits shareholders have not responded favorably today's verdicts, they've lambasted the company and last month, they had a vote of no confidence in the management's actions from the last year, which was the latest signal that they're not happy with this month Santo deal the cases of really clobbered bear stock haven't they? Yes. Since the first jury verdict in August. The stock has fallen some thirty percent. And we'll see what happens this week after this third verdict in how many total claims are there the tyrod up to cancer their current? Around thirteen thousand four hundred claims time ran up to cancer, which is a pretty extraordinary number even in these mass torts cases of this one has accelerated quite quickly since the first jury verdict came out. No will this jury award stand or is the judge likely to cut the amount as happened in the first two verdicts. So the biggest part of this award is two billion dollars in punitive damages when those are damages that are awarded essentially to send a message to the defendant to try to correct their behavior than rest of it is fifty five million dollars in compensatory damages which are awarded for things like past economic loss in future economic loss to the couple and so oftentimes juries will award these massive amounts of punitive damages and on appeal or even from the same judge that oversaw the trial. They often get cut down, for example, in the first case that went to trial. There was a pretty large punitive damage award that the jury that the judge rather cut by more than two hundred million even before it. Up on appeal to the next level of court, so often these punitive damages or easy to dole out by Jerry. But they get ratcheted back with zero. What's the big question? Going forward facing these lawsuits. The big question now is whether and win these cases will ever reach a settlement on the company seems to be saying it's still too early. They say this litigation will take a long time. And none of these appeals from the earlier trials have gone through yet. And others. Have also said that the company should probably wait, and is likely to wait until appeals have been processed before they even think about settlement. But as the investor pressure ratchets up, it seems like the company has to either change its Trump strategy or do something to move toward resolution. So it doesn't hang on with over them for years to come shares in buyer where nearly three percent lower this morning in early trading in Europe.

With me as always Dr Pamela, gay, a senior scientists for the planetary Science Institute and the director of cause request Pam how you doing I'm doing. Well, how are you doing Fraser, really good? It's been a nice relaxing week. So far, actually it's been good. Some follow up stories, we you know, the bare sheet Lander crashed and but now bear she too is is is go. The falcon heavy landed. Perfectly accepted didn't the the the core booster fell over in the high seas and broken half and half returned to Poseidon. You didn't know that? No. Yeah. So it landed and then fell over in the high because 'cause the Octo grabber can't grab the core booster of a falcon heavy, and so yeah, it fell over and the top crunched off and and went to the went to Davy Jones locker and they need they need an octa grabber. Massive addition Octo grabber heavy. Yeah. Yeah. And of course, still been just feasting on black hole news. So it's it's been a, but it's a poor chil. But it's been it's been good. It was let's say it was very burnt out on. Space news last week all excited. Let's basins again this week yesterday. And today have been like story after story after story. And what I loved is today. There was a theme of when asteroids invade your solar system, and it was a pleasing theme really pleasing thing. Yeah. Inter people's had no light pollution, and they knew the night skies. Very well. In fact, they depended on them to know when to plant when to harvest today, Pamela, talks about the arc yo astronomical sites of the American southwest, which coincidentally is a place you are going to be traveling to relatively soon. It. It is true next. August I am going to be leading an Astro tore through the American southwest departing from Tucson going to places still being determined, but will include national parks, and observatories and ending it all in Las Vegas. Now, we aren't going to get to visit a lot of the archaeological sites that I'm thinking today. But the reason that I'm leading that tort is because that's the part of the country where I spent my summers growing up. It's where my grandparents are it's where I went to graduate school. Well, it's where I did a summer or a you as an undergrad. And so when I picked the topic for today, it was basically like, okay. The news is heavy. I wanna pick something will bring me joy to read. And I know I just don't I know exactly how this went down. You were like looking at sites that you were going to be going in thinking about it. And then just nerd out and went down a rabbit hole of cool. Historical archaeological sites in the American southwest. Yeah. Now that eight so actually I was playing ticket to ride with keeper of maps and paranoid. You're going. Have no idea what to talk about. I have. No, I am out of a DEA 's. And it was out of me bemoaning how I was like out of ideas, as I faced the weeks world news that I was like what if and it was like archaeology, let's talk about archaeology. Let's talk about things and before the expletive hit the fan. So. Oh, yeah. So, but I mean, the irony, of course, is that the places you're going to be talking about are not places that you're going to be going on your Astra tour. I think that's the point is likely is is that you this is pure Pamela rabbit hole. This is you. Yes, finding something and nerd ING out about it for for our benefit. It's it's true. And this is going to be part of a series. And we are going to talk next week most likely about the modern astronomy being done in the American southwest today. We start with the beginning times. And next week. We're going to talk about how we're learning about the end times.

"Hospital management theater. I'm going to be the person that walks in and presents a problem in Joe is going to be part of hospital management came up with the solution. All right. I got it. Somebody stealing drugs we need to find out who they are. What could we do to catch the person who's going into these waiting these rooms and stealing drugs that are hospital? Security cameras are the answer. We need to put security cameras in every room in every every nook and cranny probably toilet stalls every examination room. We'll put motion activated cameras. So that any time anybody gets undressed or does anything in that room. We catch it on videotape. Well that makes a bit of exaggeration. But only a bit Alison warden joins us. Alison is a partner at the Gomez law firm that is suing. Hospital chain. Well, sharp Grossman hospital in LA Mesa California, specifically for their motion activated cameras set up in various spots. Alison, welcome. How are you? Good morning. I'm well. Thank you. So what indeed was drug thefts that spurred the installation of the cameras, correct? Doubts. What? Yes, the sharp is telling us. Okay. And and where did they put those cameras? They put them on the anesthesia carts in three operating rooms in the women's center in sharp gross my hospital. So how in the women's center in particular? Yes. So basically these three operating rooms or used only for women procedures anything ranging from unfortunately, DNC, what will lose the child to to belie- Gatien's and emergency c section so all kinds of surgical procedures with women conducted on women took place in these three operating rooms where they hid the cameras. The drugs were disappearing from I'm trying to establish whether this was just ill advised stupid, or if it was perverse. There were reports that there were drugs missing from the anesthesia cart in those three operating rooms. Okay. And so instead of taking less invasive means perhaps like locking the cart. Ahead and installed these cameras which would not be visible to anybody basically staff. Dr certainly to patient were unaware. So the patients didn't know which has got to be some sort of hip violation. The doctors didn't know and then who had access to the videos. Well, that's one of the major problems and hopefully throughout this litigation. We'll get to managers that we have been unable to get. This far sharp says that their security or the ones that were doing the cameras in trying to wash to see. One doctor was taking the drugs. However, they have not been able to provide any answers or sureties as to who within sharp organization or outside of sharp organization. Did have accents. So you're so you're hospital mall. Cops have access to the most private of of procedures being done on you and seeing you and everything like that that that makes pretty good sense. I see that you have Eighty-one women named as plaintiffs thus far. That's quite a number. We do and potentially. So the cameras were installed in July of two thousand twelve and they were not turned off in till June of two thousand thirteen so they were running during that eight basically eight months time period during that time period roughly eighteen hundred six procedures were conducted in operating rooms. So did they ever catch the person that was stealing the profile that ever happened? Well, you know, the doctor that they had identified is taking the drugs from the cart was brought up or was investigated by the medical board. Here's actually cleared of taking those drugs related to the reason that sharp said that they install the cameras. Okay. All right. Well, that's that's wild. So it could be hundreds of plaintiffs eventually. And what are you hoping for? Occasionally, it could be over eighteen hundred plaintiffs. There was a class action that was initially filed. And now it's been transitioned due a mass tort. And so the case has been. In litigation and we're trying within trying to get the identities of all the women that were victimized during that time period. And so as plaintiffs contact information their identities become available, and they decide they want to join in and participate in the lawsuit that we will continue to add plaintiffs. I can't decide did we skip over this. Or is it obvious did the cameras consistently catch images of the women in question? Or was it the operating? Well, it says here if I'm you know, it's your lawsuit, but you've held back on this. So I'm going to say it. Additionally, the lawsuit alleges the women were recorded as they undressed at times. Defendants patients, the dependence patients had their sensitive genital areas visible. Absolutely. There's a wide range. I'm just curious and I'm not criticizing. But I would think you'd want to not sensationalized go beyond. But I would think you wanna put in all the worst stuff. There is news. You kind of feel like to me like you're holding back. For that a legal strategy. Absolutely. No, well there because I stated earlier there was a class action that was fouled in may two thousand sixteen. Some documents have been ordered to be protected by protective order. So some information has not been released to the public. And so I'm not allowed to speak about okay? At this time. Yeah. So moyer's is you know, never wanna hold back on their best information. But whether that's why I'm wondering why you were saving there. They were videotaping them naked with their genitals exposed in holding that back from this discussion. So little we're done just say. Goes it goes above and beyond that actually, well, then hit us. It's not just you know, the women being exposed they walk into the room. Some of them are undressing, right? They're getting on the the gurney home and already wheeled in. But these are women that range from say some of the happiest times in their life. Scariest times in the worst times in their life. You have women that lost their baby in that room. That didn't never want to you know, they'll remember forever. But certainly now it's been memorialize and they're nervous to who. Else has had access to this very intimate in horrifying include this. This is what the hill is reporting that the lawsuit says several hospital staff members, including non medical personnel were able to access the recordings through desktop computers. Additionally, the lawsuit alleges the hospitals did not keep track of who could access the recordings wire win that seems like a big deal. She got naked women, and they're not sure who could access it. And how often they did. Right. Absolutely. And who has copies right now. And whether or not this is going to end up on the. Oh, of course, it will. You know, how the internet works. Yikes. Alison warden partner at the Gomez law firm. Allison, thanks for joining us. We appreciate it. And let's stay in touch is this progresses casually. Thanks for having me. All right. Our pleasure. She would have legal reasons. I don't understand. I just thought it was interesting. She was leaving out some of the juiciest stuff from the. You're right. Well, yeah. Yeah. There are some stuff that hasn't been released. So okay. Well, okay. But I didn't want that to not get in the story because I think you should go whole hog we restrained. In good taste. No. If you had video of women getting undressed in crawling up onto the table as as women have told me, that's like the most uncomfortable thing that happens to you. Emotionally before the physically uncomfortable stuff happens right now getting undressed in climbing up there on that table. There's video that in just kinda ran does get to access at there at the hospital. And whether or not buddy, insecurity, the hospital mall cop as you put it so charmingly, I just saw her and go down there getting that tape later on. No problem. You know that happened. Yes. Garin freakin t it.

So here's yet. Another chapter of the goddamn case for fucking Christ. And rejoining us for yet. More of this shit is my lovely wife, Lucinda, loosen to welcome back. Come meet the new year the same as the old year though? All right.

There you go. It's so fucking random. So. Okay. So the point he's trying to make is Jesus had a lot more informed than just an empty tomb yell, but to make that point he starts with the infamous Alabama church bombing of nineteen sixty three. His literal example is all right. So you around the KKK kill those little girls. And then her body was lost. Well, nobody she was the same year. Funnier case for.

"About Exxon refusing to write down the value of its fossil fuel assets that are still in the ground two sets of books. One. Incidentally that. They were keeping. So that they understood what reality was and another more nuance three hours. If you will for the investment public the allegation really is that the company is not as big as it says it is. And it's not worth as much as it says, it is Exxon declined to comment to NPR but released a statement that said in part, these baseless allegations or a product of closed door lobbying by special interests, political opportunism and the attorney general's inability to admit that a three year investigation has uncovered no wrongdoing. Exxon Mobil has moved to thwart the investigation by attorneys general in three states, alleging it's a conspiracy involving the Rockefeller Foundation. Tort lawyers. Environmentalists said democratic Agee's Michael burger is a professor at Columbia law. School who specializes in climate change law burger doubts Exxon. Conspiracy theories are going to hold up in court. This is about climate change. It's about the risks that regulation poses to the fossil fuel industry over the next half, century or more.
