Stop by all three and take some Culpeper home with you! MORNING
ABA seeks comments on MJP recommendations ABA seeks comments on MJP recommendations December 15, 2001 Regular News A lawyer should be able to serve a client on a temporary basis wherever the client’s needs require the lawyer to be, regardless of whether the lawyer is licensed to practice law in the jurisdiction, provided that the circumstances do not create an unreasonable risk to clients, the public, or the courts. In so doing, however, the lawyer should then be subject to the disciplinary authority of the jurisdiction where he or she is rendering services.Those are among the recommendations being made in an interim report released by the ABA Commission on Multijurisdictional Practice, after a year of taking testimony and examining and debating how the present structure of regulating lawyers serves the public, the legal profession, and client needs.The interim report includes examples of “safe harbors” for lawyers who cross jurisdictional lines to serve their clients’ needs, such as one that would permit a lawyer to work in another jurisdiction if he or she associates with local counsel, and another that would permit lawyers to perform services in another jurisdiction that could legally be performed in that jurisdiction by a non-lawyer.The interim report does not endorse “national practice,” and — except as authorized by law or in the case of an employed lawyer who practices only for his or her employer — recommends that admission to the bar be required where a lawyer wants to establish a permanent presence in a jurisdiction.The commission is asking the judiciary, lawyers, bar associations, clients, and anyone else with an interest in the topic to read and react to the interim report, which can be found on the Web at www.abanet.org/cpr/mjp-home.html.Among the myriad questions and situations the commission considered were whether it is unusual for a lawyer to take or defend a deposition in another state; to travel out of state to consult with and advise someone who works for a client’s subsidiary; to call out of state to negotiate on behalf of a client; or, if employed by a corporation, to travel to states in which they are not licensed in order to represent their client. None of these activities are unusual, and such activity is the norm for many lawyers if they are to serve their clients’ needs adequately.The commission’s preliminary recommendations include:• The ABA should affirm its support for the principle of state judicial licensing and regulation of lawyers.• The ABA should amend Rule 5.5(b) of the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct (Unauthorized Practice of Law) to provide that, as a general rule, it is not the unauthorized practice of law for a lawyer admitted in another United States jurisdiction to render legal services on a temporary basis in a jurisdiction in which the lawyer is not admitted if the lawyer’s services do not create an unreasonable risk to the interests of a lawyer’s client, the public, or the courts.• The ABA should adopt proposed Rule 5.5(c) of the ABA Model Rules to identify “safe harbors” that embody specific applications of the general principle of Rule 5.5(b). These would include “safe harbors” relating to the following practice areas: work as co-counsel with a lawyer admitted to practice law in the jurisdiction; professional services that a non-lawyer is legally permitted to render; work ancillary to pending or prospective litigation or administrative agency proceedings; representation of clients in, or ancillary to, an alternative dispute resolution setting, such as arbitration and mediation; non-litigation work ancillary to the lawyer’s representation of a client in the lawyer’s “home state” (i.e., the jurisdiction in which the lawyer is licensed to practice law) or ancillary to the lawyer’s work on a matter that is in the lawyer’s home state; and services involving primarily federal law, international law, the law of a foreign jurisdiction or the law of the lawyer’s home state;• The ABA should adopt proposed Rule 5.5(d) to identify “safe harbors” relating to work by a lawyer who is an employee of a client or its commonly owned organizational affiliates and work in a “host state” (i.e., a jurisdiction in which the lawyer is not licensed to practice law) that the lawyer is authorized by federal law, state law, or court order to render.• The ABA should adopt proposed Rule 5.5(e) to prohibit a lawyer from establishing an office, maintaining a continuous presence, or holding himself or herself out as authorized to practice law in a jurisdiction in which the lawyer is not admitted, unless permitted to do so by law or Model Rule 5.5.• With regard to a lawyer seeking to establish a law practice on a permanent basis in a jurisdiction in which the lawyer is not licensed to practice law, the ABA should endorse a model “admission on motion” rule consistent with the rule proposed by the ABA Section of Legal Education and Admissions to the Bar to facilitate the licensing of a lawyer by a host state if the lawyer has been engaged in active law practice in other United States jurisdictions for a significant period of time.• The ABA should encourage jurisdictions that have not adopted a foreign legal consultant rule to do so consistent with ABA policy.• With regard to lawyers admitted to practice law outside the United States, the ABA should amend either the Model Rule for the Licensing of Legal Consultants or Rule 5.5 to identify circumstances where it is not the unauthorized practice of law for a lawyer admitted in a non-United States jurisdiction to perform legal services for a client in a United States jurisdiction.• The ABA should endorse a model pro hac vice rule consistent with the one under development by the ABA Section of Litigation, the ABA Section of Torts and Insurance Practice, and the International Association of Defense Counsel, to govern the admission of lawyers to practice law before state courts and government agencies pro hac vice in jurisdictions in which the lawyer is not licensed.• With regard to pro hac vice admission in federal district court, the ABA should reaffirm its support, in accordance with ABA policy adopted in 1995, for “efforts to lower barriers to practice before U.S. District Courts based on state bar membership by eliminating state bar membership requirements in cases in U.S. District Courts, through amendment of the Federal Rules of Civil and Criminal Procedure to prohibit such local rules.”• The ABA should amend Rule 8.5 (Disciplinary Authority; Choice of Law), and adopt and promote other measures to enhance professional regulation and disciplinary enforcement with respect to lawyers who, pursuant to the above recommendations, practice law in jurisdictions other than those in which they are licensed.• The ABA should amend Rule 8.5 in order to better address multi-jurisdictional law practice.• The ABA should amend Rules 6 and 22 of the ABA Model Rules for Lawyer Disciplinary Enforcement to promote effective disciplinary enforcement when lawyers engage in multijurisdictional practice of law and should renew efforts to encourage states to adopt Rule 22, which provides for reciprocal discipline.• The ABA should take steps to promote interstate disciplinary enforcement mechanisms.• The ABA should establish a Coordinating Committee on Multijurisdictional Practice to monitor changes in law practice and the impact of regulatory reform, and to identify additional reform that may be needed.Comments on the report should be sent to John A. Holtaway, ABA Center for Professional Responsibility, 541 North Fairbanks Court, 14th Floor, Chicago, IL 60611, telephone (312) 988-5298, fax: 312-988-5491, e-mail [email protected] staff.abanet.org, by March 15.
US regulators said Friday that they have authorized the emergency use of the experimental anti-viral drug remdesivir for treating coronavirus patients, saying that clinical trials have showed “promising results.””While there is limited information known about the safety and effectiveness of using remdesivir to treat people in the hospital with COVID-19, the investigational drug was shown in a clinical trial to shorten the time to recovery in some patients,” the US Food and Drug Administration said in a statement.The move, which will enable the drug to be used for those hospitalized with severe illness caused by the new coronavirus, is a “significant step” forward in battling the pandemic, Secretary of Health and Human Services Alex Azar said in a statement. The company said it aims to produce at least 500,000 treatment courses by October, 1 million treatment courses by December and millions more in 2021, if required.Remdesivir was developed by US biopharmaceutical company Gilead Sciences as a possible treatment for Ebola, but it has not been licensed or approved anywhere globally.Clinical trials have been under way to confirm the effectiveness and safety of its use for coronavirus patients around the world, including Japan.The Japanese government is looking to fast-track its approval. The drug is expected to be available in Japan as early as this month, a government official said.Under the emergency use authorization, remdesivir will be distributed in the United States and administered intravenously by health care providers for patients with low blood oxygen levels as well as those needing oxygen therapy or more intensive breathing support such as a mechanical ventilator.More than 1 million people in the United States have been infected with the coronavirus, with the country’s death toll exceeding 64,000, according to a tally by Johns Hopkins University.Globally, there have been more than 3 million confirmed cases of COVID-19, the respiratory illness caused by the virus, and more than 230,000 deaths.Topics :

I feel like I can go play a game right now,” the 26-year-old from Texas told CNN Friday.But he had a warning for young Americans like those shown partying on Florida beaches undeterred by the threat of COVID-19.“I advise my generation, I am 26, to take it seriously,” Smart said. “Be alert. Take precautions. By protecting yourself, you protect others.“That’s the key. People are not showing symptoms so it is hard for anyone to know they have the virus.

Much love!!,” he tweeted.At least 14 NBA team members have so far tested positive for COVID-19, including Brooklyn Nets Kevin Durant and Utah Jazz’s Rudy Gobert and Donovan Mitchell.On Wednesday, commissioner Adam Silver said NBA players should be considered “super spreaders” of the disease.Silver’s comments came amid criticism that wealthy athletes were getting tested for the virus ahead of critically ill patients in US hospitals.Smart said he was tested on Saturday and got the results five days later.“I found out yesterday evening,” he said. “I was like, Oh wow! It makes you alert to what is going on.”Smart told CNN he was not worried about his symptoms getting worse.“I talked to my doctors and they just told me that I have not experienced symptoms yet so I should be on the last curve of the ball.
