While our courts have swiftly adopted the new ways of technology to address the urgent concerns of litigants, this situation also highlights the importance of having a concrete and set-in procedure for addressing such emergencies, which may arise in future. Rather than ad-hocism, we need a fool proof procedure in place, which can take care of all exigencies. With this objective, LiveLaw is initiating a debate on reform measures needed for court procedures. The series starts with the article written by Shyam Divan, Senior Advocate, Supreme Court, where he discusses the need for emergency procedures in SC.To take the debate forward to a meaningful conclusion, LiveLaw cordially invites response from all the readers on this topic. The responses may be send to “[email protected]”/”[email protected]”, with the Subject : Emergency Court Procedures”.Warm RegardsLiveLaw Editorial Board] Over the past few days my chamber colleagues and I discussed the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on access to justice here in India and elsewhere. As we deliberated, we felt that at times like these, the legal community, particularly courts, must respond by upgrading their infrastructure and quickly putting in place a new set of procedural rules. This is imperative because the general sense is that a return to the pre-pandemic manner of working may take several weeks, if not months. Let me set out what I believe are the most important objectives: (a) restoring the working of the Supreme Court of India in a meaningful manner where access to justice is restored; and (b) ensuring that no one in the business of administration of justice in the Supreme Court is put to enhanced risk by the Covid-19 disease. How do we achieve these objectives? Keen as we all are for resumption of physical courts, I do not see this as a realistic possibility for several weeks, possibly months. This is because many factors weigh against reopening of physical courts. Adopting even the most stringent physical distancing rules, there remains a very strong likelihood: a) Lawyers, clients, support staff, members of the Registry will in the coming months get infected. Frankly, all of us are at risk and will continue to be so until the disease abates. b) Decision makers will not allow physical reopening even post lockdown so long as there remains a non-negligible risk of spreading of Covid 19 through courts. c) A large number of community members who are in and out of court belong to sections of the community who are medically vulnerable and high risk groups. d) It will be several weeks, if not months before decision makers can confidently assess as negligible, the risk of exposure to Covid-19 in a court building. In this backdrop, what are the options? I do not see an early return of physical court hearings. In other words, if the courts are to function in the near term there is no option except to adopt as a temporary measure virtual courts. The default position is that the present mode of functioning with some cosmetic changes will drag on. This would be most unsatisfactory. This brings me to draft rules appended to this article. The purpose of the draft rules is to initiate a discussion that hopefully will result in a new set of procedural rules. Unless we have formalized procedures, the current ad hocism will continue. Both from the standpoint of access to justice as well as protecting the health of those involved in the administration of justice, there is in my view no choice but to have structured virtual court hearings at least for the next few months. It is the duty of all of us who are involved in the serious business of administration of justice to find solutions. Doubtless, we need a sharp upgrade in the quality of technical infrastructure which must be introduced with the help of technical experts. The Supreme Court of India has an opportunity to lead the way by swiftly adopting emergency pandemic rules to restore court operations post-lockdown.

New Member Joins Monmouth Beach Commission

first_imgBy John Burton |MONMOUTH BEACH – The reorganization of the municipal government on Tuesday saw a new member come on board for the governing body and a call from one resident for a change at the top.David F. Stickle, the newest member, was sworn in at the meeting for a four-year term on the three-member commission, the municipality’s governing body.Stickle, 58, was the top vote-getter by a wide margin in the May 9 election in the four-way race for the three spots. Based upon vote tallies, Stickle’s 528 votes, according to the county clerk’s office, led to the ouster of incumbent Jeffrey W. Mitchell, Jr.Mitchell had campaigned with fellow incumbents James F. Cunniff and Susan Howard, with the three running on the same ticket under the banner “Proven Leadership Putting You First,” for the non-partisan election.The mayor’s position is selected by the majority vote of the commission members. Howard, who has been on the commission for 12 years and has served as mayor for those 12 years, was again selected for the post. But the vote was 2-1 for Howard, with Stickle voting no.The renaming of Howard as mayor rankled Bayonne Street resident Tom “Tugger” Degnan. Degnan commended Howard’s service and credited her with turning the municipal-operated bathing pavilion, its pool and beach club, into a “cash cow” for the borough. Afterward Stickle explained his vote. “Mayor Howard has done a great job and I believe she will continue to do a great job,” as mayor, he said. But, he continued, “it was expressed to me they wanted me as mayor,” referring to his supporters.Stickle, 58, is married with three young adult sons and owns and operates a warehouse business equipment company. “I just wanted to help the town,” he said of his reason for running for office, his first attempt at public office, believing his business experience would be beneficial.The concerns for the community remain the same, he explained, as it continues to address Super Storm Sandy recovery issues and flood mitigation. “And, of course, keeping taxes low,” he added.This article was first published in the May 11-18, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times But Degnan asked that Howard step aside and “listen to the voters,” to let Stickle take on the mayor’s role. Stickle’s election, according to Degnan “represents a new direction for Monmouth Beach,” given he received nearly twice as many votes as the next candidate.David F. Stickle, with his wife, Lisa, takes the oath of office this week as the newest member of the Monmouth Beach Commission.Howard said she wouldn’t resign.“One more question to you, Mayor Howard,” Degnan asked. “Do you believe what you’re doing is morally right?”“I don’t think there’s any question about my dedication to this town or Jim’s dedication,” Howard concluded, referring to her running mate. Cunniff has been a commissioner for 20 years.Borough attorney Dennis Collins explained to Degnan that with Monmouth Beach’s form of government, the designated mayor is just one of three voting members, with no additional authority, other than probably just being able to officiate marriages and oversee commission meetings.last_img read more

Cristiano Ronaldos Real Madrid legacy

first_imgAfter over two months of speculation, Cristiano Ronaldo has left Real Madrid to join Juventus in a €112m deal, but what kind of legacy did he leave the club after nine years?The Portugal captain arrived at the Santiago Bernabeu as a fresh-faced 24-year-old from Manchester United in a then-world record deal of €94m in the summer of 2009 and as the reigning Ballon d’Or winner.A return of 33 goals in all competitions was to follow in his debut campaign in what was a trophyless season following Real’s disappointing exits in the Champions League and Copa del Rey.After questions on whether Ronaldo’s hefty price tag was worth it, after all, the Portuguese superstar responded in astonishing fashion with 53 goals in a single season and since then he has achieved the following across his magnificent nine-spell:Franck Ribery, FiorentinaFiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.450 goals in 438 games.A record of 17 goals in the 2013-14 Champions League season105 Champions League goals4  Champions League titles311 goals in La Liga.2 La Liga titles (2011-12 & 2016-17)15 Major trophies with the club4 Ballon d’Or awards44 hat-tricks8 times he had scored four or more goals for Real.Club record quickest ever hat-trick inside eight minutes in a 9-1 win over Granada.A record total of 61 goals in all competitions during the 2014-15 season.658 Career goals(Obtained by the Daily Mail)Undoutably he is a true great for Real after the many, many records he has broken and will likely be forever regarded on the same level as club legends like Andrea Di Stefano.Nine years on, and with football’s most coveted individual prize still in his hands in the Ballon d’Or, the question now is whether he will be up to the challenge of ending Juventus’ 22-year wait for glory in Europe?
