Landlord and Tenant Board adjudicator issues interim order that favours landlord despite potential conflict of interest

An adjudicator at the Landlord and Tenant Board who admitted to being in a conflict of interest issued an order advocates say weakened the legal position of a tenant facing eviction after losing his job during the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Nov. 25, adjudicator Shannon Kiekens was presiding over a virtual hearing between Pinedale Properties and a member of a largely immigrant, working-class tenants’ union, the East York 50.

The lawyer for Pinedale Properties, Kristin Ley, works for the prominent pro-landlord law firm Cohen Highley, where Kiekens worked as a paralegal for 20 years until earlier this year.

In a video of the hearing shared by People’s Defence Toronto, which describes itself as an organization fighting to build political power for poor and working-class people, Kiekens said she was in a possible conflict of interest and would recuse herself and adjourn the hearing until another adjudicator was

Members of the Association for Women in Media protest against rising incidents of sexual violenceMembers of the Association for Women in Media protest against rising incidents of sexual violence

Already struggling with a high rate of Gender-Based Violence (GBV) cases, Malawi is coming to terms with increased cases of defilement and rape compelling activists and politicians alike to call for stiffer penalties for perpetrators.

The latest case to have particularly incensed the nation is the defilement of a five-month-old baby by a 31-year-old in Malawi’s old capital Zomba where residents want to take the law into their own hands to deal with suspects.

In a video that has gone viral, a cabinet minister speaking at a political rally is asking people to beat up rapists before they bring them to the police.

“It is very sad to see people defiling three or four-year-old girls. When you catch anyone, who has defiled a child beat

U.S. seeks prison for ex-FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith

In a 20-page sentencing filing, attorneys with special counsel John Durham wrote that a sentence of at least two to six months was just given the seriousness of the offense. The case “fueled public distrust of the FBI and of the entire” program under which federal law enforcement obtains court approval to surveil domestic targets in foreign intelligence cases, the filing said.

“An attorney — particularly an attorney in the FBI’s Office of General Counsel — is the last person that FBI agents or this Court should expect to create a false document,” prosecutors Anthony Scarpelli and Neeraj N. Patel wrote. “This Court’s sentence should be designed, in part, to send a powerful message to the community that this type of conduct — falsifying information to hide facts from a court — will not be tolerated.”

Clinesmith is scheduled for sentencing Dec. 10.

The charge carries a maximum five-year prison

Brexit: Hopes of deal ‘receding’ as UK-EU talks continue

Brexit talks are due to continue today amid warnings the prospect of a breakthrough is “receding”.

Negotiations between the UK and EU seemed to stall yesterday – with Britain claiming Brussels was calling for fresh concessions at the 11th hour.

And with the Brexit transition period due to end on December 31, there is little time to get a deal agreed by negotiators and approved by the EU’s leaders, Westminster and the European Parliament.

A senior UK Government source said: “At the 11th hour, the EU is bringing new elements into the negotiation.

“A breakthrough is still possible in the next few days but that prospect is receding.”

Fishing and the so-called “level playing field” aimed at preventing unfair competition on state subsidies and standards remain the main issues to be resolved in the talks.

It is reported the EU’s chief negotiator, Michel Barnier, is expected to return to Brussels

Kevin Clinesmith pleaded guilty to a felony false-statement charge in August, soon after he became the only person charged in connection with the investigation Attorney General William Barr ordered last year into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe. Barr earlier this week appointed the veteran prosecutor leading that review, Connecticut U.S. attorney John Durham, as a special counsel, empowering him to continue the investigation into President-elect Joe Biden’s term.

In his plea, Clinesmith admitted adding words to an email used to bolster the case for a surveillance warrant on Carter Page, a former Trump campaign adviser. The alteration was one of a series of errors, omissions and inaccuracies identified by

Our view: Atlantic City taking innovative approaches to better policing, public safety | Latest Headlines



Atlantic City Police

In many cities across the country, police departments and residents are consumed by incidents in which officers used force and people died, how they happened and what can be done better in the future.

The best time to improve the interaction of the police and public, though, is before there’s a tragedy.

Atlantic City is doing just that, taping local and distant resources to implement two innovative programs. One aims to help ensure the kinds of police-public interactions that build trust and mutual appreciation. The other trains reformed and rehabilitated residents to help defuse conflicts and potentially violent situations.

Last month with the help of criminal justice professors and law enforcement veterans at Stockton University,

Kyle Rittenhouse lawyer steps away from Wisconsin protest-shooting criminal case | Associated Press

KENOSHA, Wis. — An attorney for Kyle Rittenhouse indicated Thursday that he’d pull back from the teen’s criminal defense, hours after prosecutors in Wisconsin sought to block him from participating and alleged in a court filing that his involvement with a fundraising effort “provides ample opportunity for self-dealing and fraud.”

Los Angeles civil lawyer John M. Pierce has been the public face of the 17-year-old’s defense against a murder charge and other counts in the three months since the teen fatally shot two men and wounded a third during summer protests in Kenosha. He also has been an enthusiastic fundraiser, helping to secure $2 million for his client’s bail.

Prosecutors, however, have grown increasingly critical of Pierce’s frequent out-of-court statements and fundraising efforts, which have been aimed at the political right.

In a motion filed Thursday morning, Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger cited public records and news reports
