Michigan Lawyer Receives Citation Over Black Lives Matter Sign Outside His Home

A lawyer from Michigan has received a citation over a Black Lives Matter sign outside his home, with police saying it violates a city ordinance.

Todd Russell Perkins, a lawyer from Grosse Pointe Shores near Detroit, nailed the sign to a tree outside his house in November.

Afterward, he received a police report warning ordering him to remove the sign as it violated a rule that there can be no political signs larger than seven square feet.

Police said they had received an anonymous complaint about the sign. Perkins said he wanted to know which neighbor had made the complaint and has argued he should have freedom of speech.

Speaking to Fox News, he said: “To announce it, to be able to say it, to be able to scream it from atop of a mountain is my right as an American.

“We can all agree that that’s greater than seven

Two Dayton Law Students Take Home Honors In Ohio Attorney General’s Mock Trial Competition : University of Dayton, Ohio

They were the kind of tense exchanges between an attorney and a witness that would fit nicely in a courtroom TV drama.

But the only place these back and forths were broadcast was on Zoom, as the team from the University of Dayton School of Law prepared for the Ohio Attorney General’s Mock Trial Competition.

“Every week I’d come with something different and she’d have a different answer,” says 3L Zion Savory, who played the role of an attorney for the competition, of fellow teammate Khandice Lofton, who played the role of a witness. “If I caught her up one week, she’d answer a different way the next week.”

All those hours of trying to out-maneuver the other paid off at the competition when the two were matched up against attorneys and witnesses from other law schools in the state. Savory was awarded Best Attorney in the morning session and

Officials raid home of Diego Maradona’s doctor, probe death as manslaughter case

Argentine investigators raided the home of Diego Maradona’s doctor on Sunday as they probe a possible case of involuntary manslaughter in the soccer legend’s death.

The blitz comes after Maradona’s lawyer last week called for a full investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of the 60-year-old former soccer phenom, who died Wednesday after suffering a heart attack, the Mirror reported Sunday.

Investigators converged on the home of the doctor, Leopoldo Luque, 33, around 8:40 a.m. Sunday and are expected to question him as they probe possible medical negligence in Maradona’s death, the outlet said.

“As Luque was Maradona’s personal physician the decision was taken to search his house and surgery (office) to look for documents that could determine whether, during Maradona’s treatment at home, there were any irregularities,” a law enforcement source told Argentina’s La Nacion.

The soccer star’s lawyer, Matias Moria, raised questions about his death Thursday.

The Home Office broke equalities law when it introduced its hostile environment immigration measures, a critical report from the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) has concluded.

The department now has a legal duty to review these policies to ensure they are not racially discriminatory, and that they comply with equalities legislation, the rights body announced.

In the latest damning report on the Home Office’s record in relation to its hostile environment policies and the Windrush scandal, the EHRC study detected “a lack of commitment” within the Home Office to the importance of equality.

Negative consequences of the hostile environment were “repeatedly ignored, dismissed, or their severity disregarded”, the report found. “This happened particularly when they were seen as a barrier to implementing hostile environment policies in a highly politicised environment.”

‘There will never be anyone like him’: Well-known lawyer Charles Salvagio dies unexpectedly at Vestavia Hills home

Charles Salvagio, a longtime and well-known criminal defense attorney in Birmingham, died unexpectedly at his Vestavia Hills home.

The 66-year-old Salvagio died Friday after feeling ill for a couple of weeks. His wife, Gina, found him unresponsive and was coached through CPR by a Vestavia Hills police dispatcher until paramedics arrived but it was too late. In addition to his wife, he is survived by his 13-year-old son, Sal, and 16-year-old daughter Gabriela.

“It’s devastating,’’ said attorney and best friend Greg Cox. “He will be sorely missed.”

Salvagio represented many notorious clients over his decades long career. Some of his notable cases include the trial of Charleston Wells, a then-teenage defendant charged with the slaying of Iraqi war veteran Mike Gilotti outside his Hoover home in January 2016. Wells, who prosecutors claimed was the triggerman, was acquitted on the murder charge. Well-known attorney Tom Mesereau, of Los Angeles, also represented
