Plano schools reach undisclosed settlement with custodian over employment lawsuit

PLANO - The lawsuit claimed several missteps by the district in handling the incidents, including taking almost a year to discipline Carino from the time the first noose was discovered, despite Johnson alerting school officials about them multiple times. A district memo in October 2007 stated that the district had suspended Carino for three weeks without pay, said Weinberg Law Firm, Plano Employment Lawyer.

Carino was on paid medical leave since the start of the 2008-09 school year before retiring March 16. According to a February 2008 report by the school district, he took responsibility for the nooses and said they were not directed toward Johnson.

Deciding Donte' Stallworth's LA DUI penalty

Stallworth also reportedly had traces of pot in his system after the accident, which may factor into Goodell's decision. It may be the only justification for giving a longer penalty than any other player who registers a 0.126 percent on a blood-alcohol content on the road. And Vick, let's remember, tested positive for marijuana after he had pleaded guilty to dogfighting, said Michael Bialys, LA DUI defense lawyer.

Will Obama Keep His Promise to Federal Whistleblowers?

Joe Darby is the whistleblower lawyer Los Angeles who sounded the alarm about the infamous Abu Ghraib prison photos that highlighted prisoner abuse at the hands of U.S. soldiers.

He received death threats and had to move his family to a military protection residence after his house was vandalized. In his statement, Darby said he made the disclosure because "it violated everything I personally believed in and all I'd been taught about the rules of war."

Ex-Bills star Smith convicted of DUI

Friday, July 10, 2009

VIRGINIA BEACH, Va. (AP) -- Former NFL star Bruce Smith was convicted of drunken driving Thursday by a judge who rejected his claim that old football injuries, not alcohol, were responsible for his poor performance on field sobriety tests.

Smith declined to answer reporters' questions after his trial in Virginia Beach General District Court. He promptly appealed the verdict to Virginia Beach Circuit Court, which set a hearing in the case for Aug. 27.

"We just hope for a better result in appealing," Smith's lawyer, Larry Cardon, told reporters.

Smith also was convicted of speeding and refusing to take an alcohol breath test. Judge Teresa McCrimmon gave Smith a 90-day suspended jail term and fined him $350 for DUI. She also suspended his driver's license for a year for refusing the breath test and fined him $90 for speeding.
