Westminster vote on school merger divorce set | Local News

WESTMINSTER — The Westminster Select Board has set a special town meeting vote for early January on whether Westminster should get an Act 46 school merger divorce.

On an unanimous vote Wednesday night, the board agreed with a petition drive spearheaded by David Major, the long-time Westminster School Board director, to hold a vote on the 2015 education law. If successful, the Westminster vote would trigger simultaneous votes in Grafton and Athens, setting the stage for another vote by the state Board of Education.

The Westminster special vote was set for Jan. 5, 2021, after Town Manager Russell Hodgkins gave the board the range of  dates that were available, with the earliest being Dec. 30, and the latest Jan. 9. The board opted for the first Tuesday after the holiday season.

Act 46 required school districts throughout the state to merge with other districts, the goal being to improve education

FEATURE-Uzbek domestic abuse victims feel judged, trapped …

By Agnieszka Pikulicka-Wilczewska

TASHKENT, Nov 27 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – A week after they exchanged vows, Nigora’s husband started beating her. Three years after leaving him, she still gets blamed for the break-up – even the Uzbek justice system thinks she should give the marriage another try.

A law passed last year criminalised domestic violence in Uzbekistan, but women’s campaigners say protecting victims could take time in a country where abused women are often urged to stick it out or find a solution within the family.

“Everyone has been judging me. My neighbours and relatives say I made a mistake by leaving. They say the first 10 years of marriage are usually like this and called me impatient,” said Nigora, 28, whose name has been changed to protect her identity.

She went against the advice of relatives and friends and left her husband after 18 months – her dreams of

Google ordered to turn over emails in Russian oligarch’s $601-million divorce battle

Article content continued

In her order, DeMarchi wrote that Temur Akhmedov’s “generally uncooperative behaviour” in the British litigation proceeding doesn’t have any bearing on her decision, which instead turns on whether the accounts are his and whether he agreed to Google turning over the information they contain.”Google points to no evidence suggesting that Mr. Akhmedov is not the owner of the accounts, and he has clearly and expressly consented to production of their contents,” DeMarchi wrote.

Albert Gidari of Stanford University’s Center for Internet and Society said the judge probably didn’t want to hold up a trial set for Nov. 30 in London.

“No one should read this decision as open season on compelled disclosure of user content in discovery proceedings,” Gidari said in an email. “To the contrary, the case stands for the unremarkable proposition that if a party can prove ownership of an account, and show discovery from

Google must disclose emails in Russian oligarch’s divorce

Google was ordered by a US judge to turn over the content of emails of the son of Farkhad Akhmedov to the Russian oligarch’s former wife in her pursuit of a £450mil (RM2.45bil) divorce judgment.

The skirmish over the email accounts is part of one of London’s largest divorce fights – involving a super yacht in Dubai and litigation funder Burford Capital Ltd – which landed before a judge in San Jose, California, in the federal court closest to Google’s Mountain View headquarters 14 miles away.

Tatiana Akhmedova alleges that her former husband transferred assets to their son Temur to avoid paying a London court’s judgment that she says remains “almost entirely unsatisfied”.

In a dispute that tugs at the boundaries of US privacy law, Magistrate Judge Virginia M. DeMarchi said she was inclined to comply with the London court’s ruling allowing Akhmedova to seek her son’s emails from Google.

Princess Diana was a head-to-toe style icon. Everything from the little black dress dubbed as Princess Diana’s “revenge dress” to the sparkling tiaras she wore dazzled spectators from across the globe. Because what is a princess without her crown? The “People’s Princess” sparkled as she donned her two signature tiara looks: the delicate Spencer Tiara, her family heirloom, or the ornate Cambridge Lover’s Knot tiara, reportedly loaned to her as a wedding gift for diplomatic functions from Queen Elizabeth II. Don’t miss the rules Princess Diana changed for good.

Unfortunately, Princess Diana didn’t get to wear her beloved Cambridge Lover’s Knot Tiara for too long. She and Prince Charles divorced in 1996 after more than 15 years of marriage, even though they were formally separated for three of those years. The

What does Jewish law say about divorce? | Jack Yaniv M.

Embed from Getty Images

There is an entire Talmudic tractate devoted to issues of divorce, elaborating on the specific details related to the Jewish divorce procedure.

Jewish law requires the giving of a “Get” (divorce document) when any marriage between two Jewish people comes to an end, whether or not there was a religious wedding ceremony.

Technically speaking, Jewish law provides for a divorce action initiated by the husband, since it was always the husband who “gave” the divorce. In practice, however, the Jewish court on occasion would force a husband to give his wife a divorce under certain circumstances.

There are a number of specific guidelines on grounds for divorce. For example, Jewish law provides that a man can divorce his wife if she refuses conjugal relations, if she has no children after having been married ten years, if she commits adultery, and if she is lax

My husband kicked me out of the house to tend to his ill father, and now he wants a divorce: Ask Ellie

Q: During the pandemic, I’ve been careful to avoid people outside the household. But I’ve experienced terrible consequences.

My father-in-law, late 80s, has been sick and weak but refused to see a doctor or go to hospital.

He prefers to stay home with my husband, who has been his 24-hour caregiver.

He also invited a lady from church to cook and do house chores here daily around dinner time.

I love my husband and his dad. But I expressed concern about dining with this lady because I don’t know where she goes and what she does when she’s not with us.

My father-in-law was furious and ordered my husband to kick me out of the house (the third-floor suite is our living quarters).

I have a summer cottage up north. During the pandemic, I stayed there most of the time and my husband came to visit.

He’s now brought me

Why Hulk Hogan said divorce from ex Linda made him ‘understand’ OJ Simpson

Hulk Hogan once said that his bitter divorce battle with ex Linda made him “totally understand” OJ Simpson.

The professional wrestling legend, 67, married first wife Linda in 1983 and they welcomed kids Brooke, 32, and Nick, 30, together.

And sadly this week marked the 13th anniversary since their explosive split.

When they divorced in 2009, it’s said the WWE star – real name Terry Bollea – handed over around $10 million to his ex.

Controversially, he went on to tell Rolling Stone that the whole thing made him sympathise with OJ, who was infamously accused of murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ron Goldman, something he still denies to this day.

Former football star OJ, now 73, was acquitted of the murders in 1995 in what became known as the Trial of the Century.

Hulk Hogan and Linda divorced in 1999
