first_imgYoung Lawyers Division hands out awards August 15, 2002 Assistant Editor Regular News Young Lawyers Division hands out awards Amy K. Brown Assistant Editor The Florida Bar Young Lawyers Division handed out six awards during the 50-Year Member and Awards Luncheon at the Bar’s recent Annual Meeting, and the Bar’s Law Related Education Committee handed out an additional three — all while honoring the 152 members who joined the Bar in 1952.Elizabeth G. Rice, immediate past president of the YLD, and current President Juliet Murphy Roulhac presented the following awards during the ceremony:• Moot Court Award : Stetson University College of Law won the championship round of the Robert Orseck Moot Court Competition, defeating Nova Southeastern University. Other law schools in the competition included the University of Florida, Florida State University, University of Miami, and Barry University. Stetson students Kristy Harrington of Orlando and Stephanie Zimmerman of St. Petersburg, and their coach, Professor Lawrence Rosenthal, were presented with an award for their final round win.• Outstanding Jurist Award : 13th Judicial Circuit Chief Judge Manuel Menendez, Jr., was honored as the YLD’s Outstanding Jurist for his excellent reputation for sound judicial decisions and an unblemished record of integrity as a lawyer and judge.Menendez has served as a judge since 1983, when he was appointed by former Gov. Bob Graham. Menendez was selected by his peers to serve as chief judge in 2001 — a time of instability in the circuit and a time during which several judges in the circuit resigned. Through his efforts, and in a very short time, “his leadership has brought renewed respect to the local judiciary,” wrote the circuit’s YLD Board of Governors in their nomination letter.• Lynn Futch Most Productive Young Lawyer Award : This award is given annually to a young lawyer who has worked diligently in the past year in Bar activities or other law-related activities and who has an excellent reputation for legal abilities and integrity.Diego “Woody” Rodriguez of Orlando was honored with the Lynn Futch Award for his work on the board of the Young Lawyers Section of the Orange County Bar Association, having chaired or significantly participated in every committee in the section.“With Woody, participation is not merely attendance at meetings,” wrote fellow Orlando lawyer and YLD board member Jamie Billotte Moses in her letter nominating Rodriguez. “Rather, Woody takes on major tasks and accomplishes them both timely and professionally. I truly believe that every event the Young Lawyers Section puts on has been enriched and improved by Woody’s participation.”In addition to his work with the Orange County Bar, Rodriguez was recently elected president of the board of directors of the Hispanic Bar Association of Central Florida, and he has been recognized as a potential future leader in the American Bar Association, winning a scholarship for minorities designed to encourage his attendance and participation at ABA events.• Most Outstanding Public Service Project by a Local Bar Young Lawyer Section, Division, or Committee : The Young Lawyers Section of the Palm Beach County Bar Association was honored with this award for its Adopt-A-School project. The project was initiated in 2001 by YLS member Alicia Trinley after the bar association’s executive committee discovered that a local school, surrounded by some of the country’s wealthiest individuals, had more than 75 percent of its students on the Federal Aid Meal Plan and bussed many students in from some of the poorest areas of Palm Beach County.The goal for the project was to help the school get back on its feet while inspiring other community businesses to adopt similarly situated schools in the county, through a two-phase plan: 1) distribute back-to-school supplies, and 2) adopt particular classrooms within the selected school. This past year, the YLS adopted the entire fifth grade and passed out school supplies to more than 200 children, funded and organized a field trip to the Busch Wildlife Sanctuary in Jupiter, held a Read-With-Me Literacy Day, a Career Day, and hosted an entire slate of Law Week events. Future goals for the project include “Student of the Month” and “Citizen of the Month” to reward students for positive behaviors.• Diversity Award : The 11th Judicial Circuit Office of General Counsel was honored with this award for the circuit’s demonstration of the highest morality and respect for all persons and diversity, for efforts and allegiance to creating diversity, and for promoting a more diverse workplace.In the letter nominating the Office of General Counsel, statistical data is offered that demonstrates dedication to diversity — at present the racial and gender makeup of the office includes 71 percent female, 25 percent black, and 17 percent Hispanic attorneys.As part of the award, the Bar’s YLD made a monetary donation to the Office of General Counsel’s charity of choice — the Dade County Young Lawyers Horizons Project.• Michael K. Reese Quality of Life Award : This award is presented to the person who through humanitarian respect advances balance and fulfillment in lawyers’ lives by redefining current work habits and schedules to provide more flexibility and a more meaningful existence. In the letter nominating Vicki L. Sproat for the award, the executive committee of the Lee County Bar Association Young Lawyers Section called her “a true role model in the legal community as a person who ably balances the demands of work, family, and community involvement.”Sproat joined Henderson Franklin in Ft. Myers in 1980, becoming the firm’s first female attorney and eventually becoming the firm’s first female stockholder. She has served as the supervisor of the summer associate program for seven years, served two terms on the executive committee, and she continues to improve the quality of life in the practice of law through her work on the firm’s Employment/Benefit Policies Committee, where she played a significant role in developing a maternity and adoption policy.Sproat is also active in her community, having served for many years on the board of directors of the United Way of Lee County, and currently serving on the board of directors of the Foster Care Council of Southwest Florida and the Human Resource Management Association of Southwest Florida. As a mentor for the Lee County Association for Women Lawyers, Sproat sets an outstanding example for new attorneys by balancing her busy professional life with her full personal life.As part of the award, the Bar’s YLD made a financial contribution to Sproat’s charity of choice. She chose to have the money divided between the United Way of Lee County and the Foster Care Council of Southwest Florida. Law Related Education Sonya Hoener of Jacksonville, chair of the Bar’s Law Related Education Committee, presented awards to three Florida judges and two attorneys during the awards ceremony to recognize their outstanding work in educating Florida students and restoring public confidence in the legal system.Eleventh Judicial Circuit Judge Kevin Emas was honored for his regular work with students and teachers in Dade County teaching about the courts and the Constitution. This past year, he assisted Florida Supreme Court Justice Fred Lewis in a classroom presentation at Miami Senior High School and assisted with training teachers in a local Justice Teaching Institute.Fifteenth Circuit Judge Peter Blanc was presented with an LRE award for his work with teachers to sponsor local training about the court system. He gets a large number of court officials involved in the delivery of the program and helps connect the legal and education communities.The third LRE award was presented to Sixth Judicial Circuit Judge John C. Lenderman and attorneys Elise Winters and Renee Bauer for their work on a project Lenderman started in 1997 handing out the Bar’s “Legal Guide for New Adults” pamphlet to every high school junior in Pinellas County. Winters, Bauer, and Lenderman organized a team of 113 lawyers and judges to visit 161 11th grade classes to hand out and discuss the pamphlet, and the team reached more than 5,100 students this year alone.last_img read more

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Chick-fil-A hopes to open its first-ever Long Island location in Port Jefferson Station.Chick-fil-A moved one step closer to opening its first restaurant on Long Island after the Brookhaven Town Board approved a zoning change that paves the way for the company to move forward with its plan.The only thing that now stands in its way after the approval Tuesday night is the town’s planning board, which has to approve the project before shovels can go in the ground at the planned location in Port Jefferson Station, according to a town spokesman. But not if LI-based gay rights activists critical to the fast food company’s opposition to same sex marriage have anything to say about it.“We’re very thankful, we don’t take anything fore granted,” Scott Thigpen, Chick-fil-A’s director of restaurant development, told the Press after the public hearing. “This is our very first location in Long Island, we’re extremely excited about the approval. We’ve got a lot of work in front of us; a long way to go.”KOR, the developer vying to secure approval, plans to build a 4,600-square-foot chicken restaurant capable of seating up to 120 customers and 20 more outside. The plan also includes a drive thru, indoor playground for children, a 186-space parking lot and another restaurant not affiliated with Chick-fil-A.Thigpen added that the location, which would be built on Route 347 on the site of a former auto dealership, could be the “first of many” on LI, but did not say where the others might eventually be.The entire town board voted in favor of the application after raising questions about the size of the parking lot and a two-lane drive thru that would merge into one, but stayed away from the more contentious issue of Chick-fil-A’s political views regarding same-sex marriage. Instead, council members left it up to members of the community to raise the issue.“Please tell these people to take a hike,” a Brookhaven man told the board, adding that he’s worried that 50 percent of the profits that goes to the company’s coffers could eventually be funneled out to groups with anti-gay sentiments.“Chick-fil-A has a long history of being taken to task for its donations,” said David Kilmnick, CEO of the Long Island GLBT Services Network, referencing past reports of questionable donations.Another Brookhaven town resident said: “as a long standing member of this community that is against both bigotry and prejudice,” he hoped the board would “take a stand” so profits from Long Islanders can’t be used to “promote their hatred.”Steven Smith of Port Jefferson Station, who came out in support of Chick-fil-A, questioned if anyone in the room had ever visited the fast food chain before. “I see nothing but favorable impressions,” he said.Although company is based in Georgia, it will be “New Yorkers that are going to be staffing it,” he told the board. “They will do what New Yorkers do: they will serve people properly.”“I fully believe that will happen here,” Smith added. “Right now [the site is] a pig sty.”He also applauded Chick-fil-A for refusing to open on Sundays, a company-wide mandate that is “more practical than biblical,” noted Thigpen.Chick-fil-A was thrust into the national spotlight regarding marriage equality after its president, Dan Cathy, made statements last year against same-sex marriage. Gay and lesbian advocacy groups called for a boycott of the restaurant, while supporters defended the chain by creating a “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.”“We’re not anti-anyone,” said Thigpen. “We’re literally here to serve everyone with honor, dignity and respect. It doesn’t matter about their race, creed, sexual orientation.”“It’s unfortunate that we went through what we did…because that’s not who Chick-fil-A is,” he told the board before the vote.Both the Port Jefferson Station/Terryville Civic Association and the North Brookhaven Chamber of Commerce said they support the proposal.David Kilmnick is also publisher of Living Out, a monthly publication for LI’s GLBT community in partnership with Private Label, a division of the Press’ parent company, The Morey Organization.last_img read more


first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York An Eastport man was sentenced Tuesday to 2 1/3 to 7 years in prison for killing a 27-year-old woman in a hit-and-run crash, sparking renewed calls for tougher penalties in such cases.Peter Torrillo had pleaded guilty at Suffolk County court to leaving the scene of fatal crash.Prosecutors said the 48-year-old man was driving his GMC Sierra eastbound on Montauk Highway when he struck Erika Strebel, who is also from Eastport, and Edward Barton, of East Moriches, on Nov. 2.“A drunk or drug impaired driver who kills someone may face up to 25 years in prison,” Suffolk County District Attorney Tom Spota said. “But fleeing the accident scene allows the wrongdoer a chance to sober up, and under the current law, any driver guilty of a hit and run faces a maximum prison sentence of seven years—even when someone dies and even if the defendant has a prior felony record.“This profound encouragement to leave the scene must be eliminated,” Spota continued, urging New York State lawmakers to more than double the maximum punishment for a convicted hit-and-run driver before the legislative session ends next week. “It’s time to close this loophole.”Torrillo, who was not charged with drunken driving, reportedly had a prior conviction for driving while high on drugs. Authorities said that after the crash, Torrillo went to a bar in Center Moriches to listen to a band.The victims were parked on the eastbound shoulder of the roadway at the time because their Jeep Cherokee ran out of gas. Strebel died shortly later.Torrillo took his truck to a body shop in Queens, but county crime lab investigators later matched paint chips from the truck to the crash scene, authorities said.last_img read more

first_img“This sanction has been imposed in connection with ongoing investigations concerning Mr Jean-Bart. Mr Jean-Bart was notified of the decision today. The provisional sanction comes into force immediately.”Haitian police have launched a probe into the allegations, first revealed late last month, and a judge has already summoned several federation employees to answer questions.According to young women quoted in an article published by The Guardian in late April, Jean-Bart raped multiple underage players over the years.Saying they had been pressured to remain silent, the alleged victims told the newspaper on condition of anonymity that at least two underage players had to get abortions after Jean-Bart assaulted them. FIFA on Monday suspended the president of Haiti’s football federation for 90 days pending an investigation into allegations he sexually abused teenage girls at the national training center.Yves Jean-Bart, 73, categorically denies accusations that he raped several young female footballers at a training facility outside Port-au-Prince over the course of the past five years.”In accordance with articles 84 and 85 of the FIFA Code of Ethics, the investigatory chamber of the independent Ethics Committee has provisionally banned Mr Yves Jean-Bart, President of the Haitian Football Federation (FHF), from all football-related activities at both national and international level, for a period of 90 days,” FIFA said Monday in a statement. “We think that this is a good decision by FIFA because we realized that Yves Jean-Bart and his cartel can overshadow any judicial investigation,” said Marie-Rosy Auguste Ducena of the National Network for the Defense of Human Rights (RNDDH).Criticizing the code of silence that she says hangs over the sports industry, Ducena noted that “rumors of sexual bargains for football benefits have been circulating in the country for a long time.”Jean-Bart has led the country’s football federation for two decades. His re-election in February for a sixth term was a mere formality — he ran unopposed.When contacted by AFP for comment, he did not respond.center_img Topics :last_img read more
