Duffy U.S. Courthouse Correspondent A federal judge has refused to strike down recent amendments to the federal Child Protection and Obscenity Enforcement Act that require photographers and filmmakers both professional and amateur to maintain records that verify the age and identity of anyone depicted in a sexually explicit film or photograph. In his 112-page opinion in Free Speech Coalition Inc. v. Holder, U.S. District Judge Michael M. Baylson in Philadelphia concluded that the law was narrowly tailored to combat child pornography and that any constitutional challenge should be analyzed under an intermediate scrutiny test rather than strict scrutiny because the law is Baylson content-neutral. In doing so, Baylson rejected the plaintiffs claim that the record-keeping requirements are overbroad because they apply to all expression containing sexual imagery no matter how fleeting, no matter how artistic or valuable as political commentary or journalistic documentary, no matter how clear it is that the persons depicted are middle-aged adults. The law was challenged by a broad coalition of plaintiffs, including the Free Speech VOL 242 NO. 20 $5.00 Coalition, which acts as the trade association for the adult entertainment industry; a pornography studio; an adult performer; a journalist who covers the adult industry; commercial photographers; a sexologist; a sexual health clinic; and the American Society of Media Photographers. Under the law, producers of certain visual depictions of actual or simulated sexually explicit conduct must create and maintain records regarding the ages and identities of the performers appearing in the depictions; must affix labels to the depictions indicating where the records are located; and must permit periodic inspection of the records by authorized government officials. The plaintiffs are represented by J. Michael Murray and Lorraine R. Baumgardner of Berkman Gordon Murray & DeVan in Cleveland along with Kevin E. Raphael and J. Peter Shindel Jr. of Pietragallo Gordon Alfano Bosick & Raspanti in Philadelphia. Murray, in an interview, said he was disappointed by the ruling, but not discouraged, and that he is very confident that Baylson s ruling will be reversed on appeal. One of Baylson s key errors, Murray said, was failing to recognize that the law plainly applies to millions of ordinary Americans who post on social networking sites and could now be prosecuted for failing to keep extensive records of their own age and identity. Supporting the plaintiffs were a pair of amicus briefs from the American Civil Liberties Union and the Electronic Frontier Foundation. A third amicus brief supporting the law was filed by 23 members of Congress and the American Center for Law and Justice. Baylson granted the Justice Department s motion to dismiss the suit and, in doing so, said he rejected the plaintiffs claim that the law is overbroad because of its failure Records continues on 9 Superior Court Hears 67 Beryllium Mass Tort Cases By amaris elliott-engel Of the Legal Staff In the wake of a Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruling that asbestos plaintiffs can survive summary judgment even though their illnesses also could be attributable to other causes, plaintiffs alleging injuries from their exposure to emissions of a toxic metal argued in the state Superior Court that they should not have to rule out other possible causes of their medical conditions in order to move past summary judgment. The Superior Court heard extended arguments Wednesday over 67 Philadelphia mass tort cases in which the plaintiffs allege their exposure to emissions of the metal beryllium from a plant outside Reading, Berks County, either entitles them to damages for their personal injury claims or entitles them to medical monitoring. Another key issue in the 67 beryllium appeals is whether the burden of obtaining medical testing that would identify sensitivity to beryllium should fall on the prospective plaintiffs or on the defendants. On the issue of causation in Harris v. NGK North America Inc., and three other cases, plaintiffs counsel Ruben Honik of Golomb & Honik in Philadelphia said that some of his clients have been held to a causation standard that is not the standard in Pennsylvania. Honik pointed Judge John L. Musmanno and Senior Judges Robert A. Freedberg and James J. Fitzgerald III to a state Supreme Court decision from last week. The state Supreme Court ruled 5-1 in Summers v. Certainteed Corp. and Nybeck v. Union Carbide Corp. that two plaintiffs alleging that exposure to asbestos caused their illnesses cannot have their cases dismissed on summary judgment simply because the plaintiffs doctor opined that their illnesses are attributable both to exposure to asbestos and to smoking.

Bar Association Civics Education Program Gets Grant By justin barry Special to the Legal The Philadelphia Bar Association s Advancing Civics Education program has received a $10,000 provisional grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, according to program chair Jenimae Almquist. The volunteer-based program, known as ACE, partners with the School District of Philadelphia to provide students with an understanding of civics, legal systems and civic participation. Until now, we have been doing everything by human power, Almquist said. It s exciting to have this pool of money. Members of the ACE committee will meet in August to discuss potential plans for using the fund, which include strengthening the program s curriculum, recruiting volunteers, offering a teacher in-service day and publicizing and expanding the program throughout the state, Almquist said. The program, which was founded in 2008 by former Philadelphia Bar Association Chancellor A. Michael Pratt, now a partner with Pepper Hamilton, integrates a basic civics curriculum with the existing curricula of public high schools and employs about 100 volunteer lawyers and jurists, according to regional News pratt almquist Almquist. Volunteers are grouped into three- to fiveperson legal teams. Each team is responsible for attending the same high school history class once a month over the course of the school year and teaching nine 45- to 55-minute lessons, in which students participate in hands-on, interactive activities centering on concepts of justice, dispute resolution and citizenship that illustrate previously studied material, according to the Philadelphia Bar Association website. Some topics and lesson plans include international law and the relationships among authority, divine law in early human cultures and protection of individual rights in the modern world, according to the website. When The Legal interviewed Pratt at the program s inception, he said the ACE ACE continues on 10 Ne w s in Brief Family Court Developer Moves to Preserve Bankruptcy Stay The private developer seeking to stay involved in Philadelphia s stymied family courthouse project said in court filings Wednesday that its property rights would be abrogated if a judge were to grant the First Judicial District s motion to lift an automatic stay imposed because of the developer s bankruptcy case. Private developer Donald W. Pulver s Northwest 15th Street Associates also asked for expedited hearings on the motions filed Friday by the FJD and the Philadelphia Parking Authority for U.S. Bankruptcy Court Judge Magdeline D. Coleman of the Eastern District of Pennsylvania to lift the automatic stay on moving ahead with the project. Northwest said that the FJD and the parking authority are coordinating their adversarial proceedings and seeking to block the debtor and the public from obtaining discovery that will expose their carefully orchestrated and concerted efforts to abrogate debtor s rights and dump debtor from the family court project. Hearings should be heard sooner than Aug. 6, Northwest argued. In filings last week, the FJD said that the bankruptcy filing was done so that Northwest could delay and hinder the project so that debtor can leverage a favorable resolution of the claims between the First Judicial District and debtor. The original structure of the deal to build a family courthouse with $200 million in state capital funds at a site owned below ground by the Philadelphia Parking Authority and mortgaged aboveground by Northwest has unraveled in the wake of the revelation that Jeffrey B. Rotwitt, who was retained by the court system to search for building locations and as a tenant representative, ended up on the other side of the project by striking a feesharing deal with Pulver. Northwest was to have a role in building the courthouse and has now filed for bankruptcy protection. Northwest s agreements with the court, the parking authority and with architect EwingCole all have been canceled in the wake of the revelation, and the parties are trying to move forward with a plan in which the state Department of General Services would build the courthouse, become the owner instead of Northwest of the air and surface rights at 15th and Arch streets, and then lease the courthouse to the city of Philadelphia. Northwest also has a dispute with architect EwingCole on which company owns the copyright to the designs drawn up by EwingCole. Northwest s bankruptcy counsel is Hangley Aronchick Segal & Pudlin.

4 4 THE LEGAL INTELLIGENCER THURSDAY, july 29, 2010 VOL P NATIONAL NEWS Storming Congress Walls: By David Ingram The National Law Journal A federal appeals court in Washington rebuked the U.S. Department of Justice three years ago after its raid on the office of then-rep. William Jefferson, D-La. Federal investigators had never before searched a congressman s office, and the ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit declared they should never do so again. But the court s decision hasn t stopped the Justice Department from testing the limits of its powers to investigate Congress. And two ongoing cases present opportunities for the Justice Department to make inroads against the 2007 ruling in Jefferson s case a ruling that department officials strongly disagreed with at the time and appealed, unsuccessfully, to the U.S. Supreme Court. They are trying to trim back, limit, keep as narrow as they can the range of what the courts have found to be out of bounds to them, said Stanley Brand of Washington s Brand Law Group, who frequently represents members of Congress. The two cases are playing out in Arizona and the District of Columbia, where a former lawmaker and a former congressional staff member are separately facing allegations of corruption. Lawyers for the U.S. House of Representatives say some of the evidence that prosecutors want to use is either tainted or prohibited entirely. At issue is the clause of the Consti tution saying lawmakers shall not be questioned outside Congress about their speech or debate. The clause is designed to fortify the independence of the legislative branch, and it protects lawmakers against attempts by the executive branch to pry into the inner workings of Capitol Hill. The outcome of at least one of the cases 9/11 Trauma Influenced Lawyer s Misconduct, Court Finds By Nate Raymond New York Law Journal A New York appellate court has overturned a finding that a personal injury lawyer had misappropriated client funds with dishonest or fraudulent intent, citing post-9/11 trauma the attorney blamed for his conduct. The Appellate Division, 1st Department, sustained five charges against Frederick W. Salo over the Manhattan lawyer s misuse of his escrow account, and approved a one-year suspension. But the unanimous panel in Matter of Salo, rejected a recommendation from the departmental disciplinary committee that Salo be disbarred or suspended for at least three years on the six pending charges against him. Salo argued for a public censure. In reaching its decision, the panel dismissed a charge that Salo, 42, had engaged in dishonest or fraudulent conduct, instead crediting psychologists opinions that the lawyer inadvertently tapped the funds as a involving former Rep. Rick Renzi, R-Ariz. could have broad ramifications for how the government conducts corruption investigations, defense lawyers and former prosecutors say. The pretrial dispute has gone up to the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, which might rule in favor of the government and contradict the 2007 ruling in the D.C. Circuit. The whole issue is bound to hit the Supreme Court in the next couple years, At issue is the clause of the Consti tution saying lawmakers shall not be questioned outside Congress about their speech or debate. said Melanie Sloan, executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington and a former assistant U.S. attorney. Congress and the Justice Department, she added, are at an impasse: The House is taking such an aggressive interpretation, and Justice is just not interested in agreeing to that interpretation. A spokeswoman for the Justice Department, Laura Sweeney, declined to answer questions about its approach to cases involving the speech or debate clause, or to make top officials available for interviews. Sweeney said that corruption cases present unique challenges but that agents and result of post-traumatic stress disorder he suffered following the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. Given the uncontroverted expert evidence, we find that it has not been proven by a preponderance of the evidence that [Salo] had the venal intent required for a finding that he willfully and knowingly converted third-party funds, the panel ruled. A lawyer for Salo, Michael S. Ross, said, We believe this is the first time ever that expert psychiatric reports from both the respondent attorney and the court supported the conclusion that the lawyer had diminished capacity. Alan W. Friedberg, chief counsel for the Departmental Disciplinary Committee, declined to comment. Mental health experts hired by both Salo and the committee agreed that he suffered from post-traumatic stress disorder and depression due to an abusive childhood and the events of 9/11. Both a referee and a hearing panel cited Salo s post-9/11 mental condition DOJ Testing the Limits of Its Power to Investigate Legislators prosecutors are committed to using all the tools at our disposal to prosecute corrupt politicians, when the facts and the evidence support it. REJECTING JEFFERSON An Arizona grand jury indicted Renzi in 2008, and he declined to run for re-election that year. Prosecutors say he extorted money from companies that needed his help getting congressional approval for land deals, and they are seeking to use evidence collected from a wiretap and from interviews with Renzi s aides. House lawyers aren t saying Renzi is immune from prosecution, but they say the congressional approval of land deals is a legislative activity and that investigators violated the speech or debate clause while collecting evidence. The issue in Renzi s appeal to the 9th Circuit goes to the heart of the ruling the House won in Back then, the D.C. Circuit said the speech or debate clause prohibits the unauthorized disclosure of legislative information to investigators meaning that investigators might not be able even to execute a search warrant to see certain evidence. But in February, U.S. District Judge David Bury of the District of Arizona ruled that the clause is more limited, affecting only how investigators may use information after they have it. Bury explicitly rejected the relevance of the Jefferson ruling, calling it an example of hard cases making bad law. Renzi s lawyers appealed, arguing that Bury should have dismissed the government s indictment because of violations of the speech or debate clause. Renzi is represented by Steptoe & Johnson partners Reid Weingarten and Brian Heberlig and Nixon Peabody partner Kelly Kramer. The House s general counsel, Irvin Nathan, stepped in with an amicus brief on June 24 on Congress continues on 8 as mitigating factors. According to the charges, Salo in December 2001 obtained a $198,000 settlement for a client, Jose Orellana, in a personal injury case. After Salo made payments to his client and himself out of the escrow account, $40,000 remained. That money was to remain in the account until a lien by Reliance Insurance Co. on the settlement proceeds was resolved. The lien was not resolved until 2005, as Reliance went into receivership. Meanwhile, from October 2002 to April 2005, Salo withdrew funds from the escrow account that caused the amount to fall below Reliance s lien, which was either $40,000 as Reliance originally claimed or $32,000, the amount its successor accepted in late April The account dropped below $32,000 in March 2003 and fell to a low of $102 in April The day before Reliance s successor agreed to the $32,000, Salo deposited $32,100 in personal funds into the account. The transfer 9/11 continues on 8 National Law Journal Files Appeal in Fight Over Restraining Order By Mike Scarcella The National Law Journal The National Law Journal early Wednesday asked a D.C. appeals court to strike down a restraining order that blocks the newspaper from publishing details about a regulatory investigation involving juice maker POM Wonderful. In emergency papers filed at 3 a.m. at the D.C. Court of Appeals, lawyers for the NLJ, a Legal affiliate, asked the court to dissolve the order, citing First Amendment concerns. The order was issued by a D.C. Superior Court judge on July 23. At issue is the identity of the federal regulatory agency that is investigating POM. The newspaper obtained the name of the agency while reporting on a fee dispute between the juice maker and Hogan Lovells. Hogan represented POM during the regulatory inquiry. POM, a private company based in Los Angeles, allegedly owes Hogan Lovells more than $666,200 in attorney fees and expenses. D.C. Superior Court Judge Judith Bartnoff determined the identity of the regulatory agency and the substance of the investigation was subject to a July 9 sealing order that the clerk s office failed to execute. At a hearing July 23, Bartnoff said the ability of the court to maintain the integrity of its docket trumps the paper s First Amendment rights to publish the information. Bartnoff granted POM s request for a temporary restraining order. Earlier in the case, Hogan Lovells fought POM s effort to seal records. Bruce Brown and Laurie Babinski of Baker Hostetler filed the appeal on behalf of the NLJ early Wednesday. No hearing date was immediately set. Previous prior restraint litigation conducted at the highest levels of the nation s judiciary has rejected attempts to enjoin publications alleged to harm national security and the fair trial rights of criminal defendants, Brown, a Baker Hostetler partner in Washington, said in court papers. By contrast, the prior restraint in this case was obtained by a privately held beverage manufacturer to prevent the public from learning the identity of the regulatory agency that is investigating the company. Brown said the granting of the restraining order is plain constitutional error and must be reversed. At Friday s hearing, Bartnoff said the public interest in the publication of court records is second to the interest the court has in maintaining the integrity of its docket. The judge said litigants must be able to rely on the court to do what it says it is doing. Bartnoff blamed administrative errors for the fact the records the NLJ obtained were not sealed. Bartnoff issued the restraining order shortly before the newspaper s Friday deadline. If I am throwing 80 years of First Amendment jurisprudence on its head, so be it, Bartnoff said at the hearing. None of that First Amendment jurisprudence, to my knowledge, is dealing with this issue Appeal continues on 8
5 VOL P THURSDAY, july 29, 2010 THE LEGAL INTELLIGENCER 5 Gg o v e r n m e n t C o n t r a c t s Defense Contracting Fraud Prosecutions: Is the Past Prologue? Editor s note: This article is the first in a two-part series. The second installment will appear Friday. By Meredith S. Auten and Marc S. Raspanti Special to the Legal During the 1980s and early 1990s, government spending on military defense reached unprecedented levels. Investigations and prosecutions of alleged fraud by military defense contractors dominated the daily headlines and filled court dockets. By 1985, almost half of all defense contractors were under investigation for some type of fraud. With the collapse of the former Soviet Union at the end of the 1980s, budgets for military defense spending deflated. Shortly thereafter, the Department of Justice shifted its priorities to the investigation and prosecution of health care fraud cases. Defense contractors breathed a collective sigh of relief after more than a decade of highly concentrated government scrutiny. As a result of changing prosecution priorities, a significant decline in investigative resources, and a loss of institutional knowledge of how to investigate and litigate these complex cases, enforcement of defense contracting fraud moved to the backburner. This lessening of government scrutiny of defense contractors continued through most of this decade despite the exponential expansion in defense spending after Sept. 11, 2001, as well as the dual wars being waged in Afghanistan and Iraq. The Obama administration declared early on that, given the substantial amount of dollars spent largely on private defense contractors, the investigation and prosecution of defense contracting fraud was at the top of its refreshed agenda. Once again, defense contractors would become a focus of government enforcement efforts. Although the new administration was a bit slow in putting the spotlight squarely back on the defense contracting industry, recent prosecutions suggest that it is picking up the pace. But the Obama administration is not the only one scrutinizing contractors private whistleblowers and their counsel continue to push the government enforcement agenda forward. Congress has also thrown its hat in the ring with a series of bills that mandate additional regulation of all types of defense contractors. The 80s and 90s: Prosecutions Flourish The billions of dollars spent on defense during the Reagan Cold War military buildup of the 1980s made defense contractors a Although the new administration was a bit slow in putting the spotlight squarely back on the defense contracting industry, recent prosecutions suggest that it is picking up the pace. primary target of government, private whistleblower and other anti-fraud enforcement efforts. In 1985, the Department of Defense inspector general, Joseph Sherick, testified that 45 of the 100 largest defense contractors, including nine of the top 10, were under investigation for multiple fraud offenses. For example, to combat what the government perceived as rampant fraud and unfettered bribery in the defense contracting industry, the Department of Justice, in conjunction with the FBI and Naval Investigative Service, launched Operation Ill Wind in Operation Ill Wind was designed to uncover and root out fraud in the massive military defense contracts that defined the 1980s. Over the course of the next few years, these agencies investigated every major defense contractor and secured more than 70 convictions, including the convictions of half a dozen global defense contractors, some smaller defense contractors, their employees, consultants and a dozen government officers. The highest ranking government officers convicted included an assistant secretary of the Navy, a deputy assistant secretary of the Navy and a deputy assistant secretary of the Air Force. In addition to prosecutions under Operation Ill Wind, the 1980s and early 1990s saw countless other government prosecutions for defense contracting fraud. In early 1990, the Eastern District of Pennsylvania was host to one of the longest and most complex criminal prosecutions of defense fraud ever tried in an American courtroom. Following a threeyear government investigation and a 14-week jury trial, a Philadelphia jury found General Electric, the second largest defense contractor at the time, and two midlevel employees, guilty of overcharging the Army for a battlefield computer system. G.E. ended up paying one of the largest fines ever assessed at the time for defrauding the defense department, as reported in the July 27, 1990, The New York Times article, G.E. agrees to pay $16.1 Million Fine For Pentagon Fraud. The case is reported as United States v. Leo, 941 F.2d 181 (3d Cir. 1991). This case demonstrated the government s resolve to take on major defense contractors and win. The affirmative civil enforcement side was equally as active. In 1986, as a result of congressional concern over what was perceived as fraud and abuse by military defense contractors, Congress passed substantial amendments to the False Claims Act. The False Claims Act was originally signed into law by President Lincoln in 1863 to protect against fraud in government contracting during the Civil War. The act prohibits any individual or business from submitting, or causing auten raspanti Meredith S.

It applies to all types of government contracting, and has been particularly effective in defense contracting fraud cases. Violators of the False Claims Act can be liable for up to three times the government s loss (treble damages), plus civil penalties of $5,500 to $11,000 per false claim submitted. The 1986 amendments to the False Claims Act substantially expanded its scope by increasing the financial and procedural incentives for private whistleblowers, known as qui tam relators, to file suit on behalf of the U.S. government. These amendments resulted in private whistleblowers bringing scores of claims against defense contractors throughout the latter half of the 1980s and the 1990s. For example, a former employee of General Electric was awarded $13.4 million for bringing a claim under the False Claims Act against General Electric alleging that the company conspired with an Israeli Air Force general to submit bills for fictitious parts and testing equipment to the Pentagon. This award was the largest for a whistleblower at the time. As a result of these types of cases, the federal government and private whistleblowers recovered billions of dollars against defense contractors accused of violating the False Claims Act. The theories advanced in these cases ranged from cross-charging, to improper product substitutions, to substandard products to inflation of costs. The one-two combination of heavy criminal and civil enforcement against defense contractors put them squarely in the government s cross Contracts continues on 9

7 VOL P THURSDAY, july 29, 2010 THE LEGAL INTELLIGENCER 7 Young Lawyer y o u n g l a w y e r o n l i n e.co m See Jim Succeed! The Dos and Don ts of Assignment Management By colleen P. france and joseph j. anclien Special to the Legal As a new or even semi-new associate at a law firm, you will take on many assignments with varying degrees of difficulty and sometimes conflicting deadlines. Assignment management time management in law firm speak is probably the key to success for a junior associate. The stories of the following three associates at a fictional firm illustrate the traps of taking on too much work, blowing deadlines, failing to adequately communicate, and missing the mark on the assignment instructions. Jen s method Jen is a new associate at the firm who did a public interest fellowship for a year before starting in the fall. She received an assignment from Jane, a sixth-year associate in the litigation department, to perform research and submit a memo at the conclusion of her research. She was given a week to complete the assignment. Jen met with Jane, took notes on their conversation, and then began her research. She utilized the library and Westlaw to guide her search and submitted the assignment on time. Jen misunderstood one subissue that Jane had not clearly explained, but that issue ultimately did not affect the conclusions in Jen s memo. After Jane reviewed Jen s memo, which was written clearly and concisely, she was able to provide it, with little revision, to the partner and client manager, who in turn provided it to the client. Jim s method Jim is a first-year associate who came to the firm in the fall immediately after graduating from law school and taking the bar exam. Jim was a summer associate the previous year and maintained relationships with a few associates that he had befriended during his summer, so he had a sense of what cases were active at the firm and who was working on them. Jane also gave an assignment to Jim, similar to the one she had given to Jen. Jim discussed the assignment with Jane and left her office thinking he knew where to begin his research. After talking to another junior associate on the case, Jim had some followup questions for Jane, so he went back to her to get clarification on two issues. He handed in his memo a day before the deadline, told Jane how much he enjoyed working on the case, and asked if she had any follow-up assignments that he could handle. John s method John is a new associate who clerked after law school graduation, immediately prior to joining the firm. John enjoyed the pace of his clerkship but was excited to begin his career of practicing law at a firm. John was Colleen P. France is the director of associate recruitment and development for Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis. She is responsible for the firm s hiring of incoming associates, managing associate assignments for the business services and litigation departments, and the training and professional development of associates firmwide. France was recently elected to serve as the NALP regional coordinator representing law firms in the Mid-Atlantic region. Joseph J. Anclien is an associate in the firm s litigation department. His practice focuses primarily on issues and appeals. He has drafted briefs to the U.S. Supreme Court, the 3rd Circuit, and the Pennsylvania appellate courts. Anclien is also active within the firm, serving as a member of the firm s hiring and summer committees and as a mentor to junior associates. also placed in the litigation department, where he received a research assignment from Jane similar to those given to Jen and Jim. John s assignment was a bit more complicated and in-depth, so he was given two weeks to complete it. John checked with Jane a few days after he began to ensure he was on the right path. A week before his assignment was due, the assignment manager in the department called him to see if he could work on a document review that the partner estimated would require a significant amount of time over the next few weeks. John, without mentioning how complex his research was for Jane, agreed to work on the document review. He began the document review and continued to work on his memo for Jane. The following week, the deadline for the document review was moved up by a few days and John had to allot more time than he originally anticipated to it. At that point, he was working extremely long hours around the clock. John went to Jane the afternoon before his deadline and asked for an extension to finish her assignment over the weekend, rather than Friday, the original due date. Who did best? Jen, Jim, and John were each able to answer the questions presented to them and complete solid research memos. However, they managed their assignments in different ways. Only one associate was subsequently assigned to the case team and given follow-up assignments; not surprisingly, that associate was Jim. Jim did exactly what senior associates and partners are looking for in new associates: He utilized other junior associates on the team to get some additional background information; he followed up with Jane throughout the process to make sure he was on the right track; he submitted the research on time; he expressed interest in the project; and he offered himself for further matters on the case. Jim s use of colleagues is commendable. Even though there is no such thing as a dumb question, you can still run the risk of sounding dumb if you, for instance, ask a senior partner who assigned you work for the phone number of the Westlaw hotline or other questions you could easily answer on your own. Learn to use the firm s resources wisely. Find out who the secretaries are and get client-matter numbers from them. Find out who the other associates are on the case and go to them when you have a factual question, when you want to discuss a legal argument you are considering, or even when you just want to commiserate after a difficult day. Make friends with the librarians to help you guide your research. Talk to your neighbors near your office, as they are going to be some of your best resources to learn about which partners come in early, work late, or have specific preferences when it comes to working with them. Use your assigned and unassigned mentors to navigate the ropes. What were the mistakes? Jen did not make any serious errors, but her failure to follow up with Jane during the entire week she was given to complete the assignment made Jane question if Jen was interested in the assignment. This lack of communication also prevented Jen from realizing that she had misunderstood a small part of the assignment a mistake that could have been easily rectified. In the end, Jen s work product was quite good and her error was minor, but because she did not discuss the work with Jane over the week, she ran the risk of handing in the assignment on time but having it completely wrong. The error (although minor) also may have caused the partner to believe she (or the assigning attorney) did not pay attention to detail or engaged in sloppy analysis, while a client receiving the memo may have relied on the mistake or interpreted the mistake to mean that the firm did not understand the client s business. Further, since Jen did not express any enthusiasm for the subject of the assignment or offer to work on any follow-up assignments on the case, she potentially signaled to Jane whether intentionally or not that she was not interested in getting further work on the matter or in working further with Jane. John, on the other hand, started out on the right foot, but when he was asked to work on another assignment, he should have told the assigning partner the due date for his memo and the amount of time he anticipated that it would take. His critical mistake, however, was waiting until the last minute to tell Jane that he needed an extension. When John s other assignment changed scope, he should have gone to both assigning attorneys and talked through the conflict. He probably could have gotten someone else on the document-review team to take a greater portion of the documents so that he could complete his memo on time, or he could have spoken to Jane earlier in the week about an extension. For this reason, it is likely that Jane would be reluctant to work with John again. Deadlines are not arbitrary. Whether there is a deadline for the court, the client or the partner on the case, deadlines are given for a reason. As a junior associate, it is your job to make use of your resources Outlook, paper calendars, the firm s docketing system, task bars, to-do lists, etc. to ensure deadlines are met. If the assigning attorney does not give a concrete deadline, it is your job to ask when the work product is due. This is the first step, and you must follow it for absolutely every assignment that you are given. If possible, get into the habit of submitting your work product before the deadline, which will reinforce your reliability and motivation to those with whom you work. what to take away Because Jim managed his assignment better than Jen or John, he earned the currency that is key to law firm success: credibility and repeat work. Although as a junior associate you may not be working directly for clients, get in the practice of treating every senior associate and partner as if they were your clients. The best client is always a repeat client, and your job as a new associate is to cause senior associates and partners who gave you one assignment to give you the next assignment, too. You do that by producing quality work product free of any mistakes on a timely basis. You should not submit a rough draft ; everything you hand in should be your best possible work. A rule of thumb is to act like your work product is going straight to the client or the court and in that respect, there is no room for errors especially grammatical ones that will cause the reviewing attorneys to question your analysis, reliability and attention to detail. Partners remember when they must perform an extensive rewrite of an associate s work, especially when that work impacts other deadlines they have. There is even more advice that new associates should seek out to succeed in the often-confusing game of associate life at a law firm, but assignment management is still probably the key to success. All other tactics like seeking out mentors, taking ownership of your career, asking questions, working hard, building trust are second to learning how to manage your assignments and turn in a quality work product every time. If you master managing your assignments and hitting your deadlines, you are on your way to winning. First prize? More assignments.

8 8 THE LEGAL INTELLIGENCER THURSDAY, july 29, 2010 VOL P Congress continued from 4 Renzi s behalf. The brief rips into the Justice Department for repeatedly and flagrantly violating the speech or debate clause. It also lays out lawmakers broad vision of their privilege, arguing that criminal investigators should not be inquiring into their motives. The department s seizure and use of, and reliance on, information about legislative acts including its wiretapping of the congressman s phone calls and ultimately its presentation to the grand jury of evidence about the congressman s legislative activities and his motivations has permeated its investigation and prosecution, said the brief, which was filed on behalf of a bipartisan group of House leaders. Nathan declined to comment. The Justice Department has until Aug. 18 to file its brief. Sloan and Tom Fitton, president of the conservative group Judicial Watch, said they are considering whether to file amicus briefs in the case, as they did in Jefferson s case in support of the Justice Department. SEEKING TESTIMONY A second test of the speech or debate clause comes in Washington, where former House staff member Fraser Verrusio faces a three-count indictment that grew out of the investigation into lobbyist Jack Abramoff. Prosecutors say Verrusio made a false statement when he omitted gifts including a World Series ticket from his financial disclosure form. For trial, they want a background witness who could testify about the importance of the form. After failing to find a witness on their own, lawyers for the Justice Department s public integrity section issued a subpoena to John Sassaman, a former House ethics counsel who is now chief counsel to the Senate Ethics Committee. On Sassaman s behalf, the House s general counsel moved to quash the subpoena. In court papers filed on June 24, DOJ lawyers defended the subpoena by arguing that ethics forms do not fall within the protected category of legislative activity. In fact, the testimony sought from Sassaman does not concern any acts or decisions actually undertaken by any committee member or staff, wrote Peter Sprung, a DOJ trial attorney, and three of his colleagues. Lawyers for Sassaman and the House disagree. In a July 16 reply, John Filamor, an assistant counsel to the House, wrote that the activity of the House s ethics committee does qualify as legislative because courts have interpreted that phrase broadly to include the committee process. The reply adds that the Justice Department has a fundamental misunderstanding of the privilege if prosecutors think they can ask even general questions about the legislative process. The two sides attempted to settle the dispute, but those talks have broken down, according to the House s reply brief. A hearing in the case is scheduled for Aug. 27. Peter Zeidenberg, a DLA Piper partner and former public integrity section attorney, said the Justice Department has plenty of reasons to continue litigating the issues it lost in the Jefferson case. Because the D.C. Circuit ruled that the speech or debate clause prohibits even disclosure of legislative activity, he said, it has become more difficult to execute search warrants and to get approval for wiretaps. It s being raised in contexts in which it was never raised before, so it s a huge problem for the government, Zeidenberg said of the privilege. It has, I think, helped stymie a lot of different investigations. The Justice Department warned of such an outcome when it petitioned the Supreme Court to hear the Jefferson case. If it didn t reverse the D.C. Circuit, congressional offices would become a sanctuary for crime, the department said in its petition for certiorari. The justices, though, declined to hear the issue then. Defense lawyers say that the Justice Department still has plenty of tools at its disposal. Jefferson, for example, was found guilty a year ago on 11 counts related to bribery. And, defense lawyers say, the D.C. Circuit simply upheld the intent of the Constitution s framers. Elliot Berke, a Washington solo practitioner whose clients have included then-rep. Tom Delay, R-Texas, wrote in an that all privileges have the effect of impeding criminal investigations. The government cannot simply water down a privilege because it may make its investigations more difficult.

Salo was also charged for checks that were drawn on the account without any designation they were from a special bank account. And he faced a charge for paying a client settlement funds with a check from the escrow account made payable to cash. Salo admitted to the underlying factual allegations. He said the misuse in part stemmed from his practice of keeping a cushion of legal fees in his escrow account, which he stated he did not realize was improper until Consequently, Salo said he thought he was using his own money to pay expenses during the period in question. EXTREME ANXIETY But Salo took issue with the claim that he acted with fraudulent or dishonest intent. Instead, he blamed the lapses on post-traumatic stress disorder and depression resulting in part from 9/11. Salo, a graduate of the University of Michigan who was admitted in 1994, maintained offices near the World Trade Center at 100 Church St. at the time of the terror attacks, according to the decision. Salo was not in the Appeal continued from 4 the integrity of the functioning of the office at the time of the attacks, but had only limited access for many months after 9/11. When he was given access during this period, police escorted him through 18 flights of stairs in the dark there was no power and he was given only a few minutes to collect what files had survived. His computer, which contained the electronic ledger for his escrow account, was destroyed. In the months after, Salo developed an alcohol abuse problem, which lasted until he quit drinking in January In October 2002, he turned to a psychologist, Jill Levitt. In an affidavit, Levitt said Salo experienced extreme anxiety related to his work as a lawyer and was barely getting any work done when he began treatment. She diagnosed him with post-traumatic stress disorder and depression based on 9/11 and his father s abuse. She also said it was likely his problems interfered with his ability to reconcile his attorney trust account. The disciplinary committee s own expert, Amy S. Hoffman, independently concluded that Salo, at the time he misused the escrow account, was in dire psychological condition that Levitt described. Nevertheless, the committee argued against mitigation. Despite his abusive upbringing, the committee argued Salo was academically and professionally successful before 9/11, and afterwards he continued to negotiate settlements for his clients. The referee, Michael C. Marcus, found that court system. POM s attorney, Barry Coburn of Washington s Coburn & Coffman, said at the hearing there is no serious question that Bartnoff has a right to make enforcement of her court orders a reality. That trumps Salo s post-traumatic stress disorder played a role in the misconduct, but he was still aware on some cognitive level that he was using third party funds to pay for personal expenses. In particular, the referee noted that Salo admitted he had been commingling funds since opening the escrow account in The Appellate Division panel upheld that Salo misappropriated the funds. But it said the issue of if it was done through dishonesty, fraud, deceit or misrepresentation cannot be resolved so simply. The panel noted that both mental health experts agreed he had invaded the funds inadvertently and that his post-traumatic stress disorder had a role in that. It also said Salo had no evident motive to do so, since he had available personal funds, and no other instance of conversion had been alleged. Neither the client or lien holder was harmed, the court noted. However, the panel noted that earlier cases had approved a suspension for a substantial period of time for even nonvenal appropriation of funds. Here, it found that a one-year suspension was the appropriate penalty [u]nder the particular circumstances of this case. The 1st Department panel included Justices Luis A. Gonzalez, Richard T. Andrias, David B. Saxe, David Friedman and James M. Catterson. Salo s lawyer, Ross, said his client is continuing to put his life together.

9 VOL P THURSDAY, july 29, 2010 THE LEGAL INTELLIGENCER 9 Appeal continued from 8 phone. None of the documents the NLJ obtained in the fee suit were marked as sealed, according to the appellate papers. The information regarding the identity of the regulatory agency was contained throughout the court papers that the NLJ reporter, Jeff Jeffrey, viewed, printed and paid for at the clerk s office. The U.S. Supreme Court has never upheld a prior restraint even in the interest of national security or the Sixth Amendment right to a fair trial, lawyers for the NLJ said in the D.C. Court of Appeals papers. Commercial business interests do not support a prior restraint, the attorneys said. The harm that POM asserts that agency policy provides for the agency, but not a company that is the subject of an inquiry or a third party, to keep a regulatory inquiry non-public while it remains in the investigative stage shrinks in comparison to the much more serious constitutional and national security interests that the Supreme Court has repeatedly found insufficient to justify the imposition of a prior restraint on the exercise of First Amendment rights, Brown said in court papers. Among the cases the NLJ lawyers cite in the papers is New York Times Co. v. United States, the famous Pentagon Papers case from 1971 where the government sought to block publication of a top secret government study of the Vietnam War. New York Times forecloses any argument that POM s interest or the judiciary s interest in seeing its sealing orders made effective supports the prior restraint in this case, Brown said. Brown also cited cases that said the inadvertent disclosures of information by a court or public official does not permit a second mistake, this time of constitutional magnitude, of imposing liability for publication of the information. The public interest lies in dissolving the temporary restraining order and permitting The National Law Journal to continue to do what it and other publications covering the legal system do on a daily basis provide their readers with information about the important business of the nation s courts, Brown said. Mike Scarcella is a reporter for The National Law Journal, a Legal affiliate based in New York. This article first appeared on The BLT: The Blog of Legal Times. Contracts continued from 5 hairs until the 2000s. The Early 2000s: Prosecutions Decrease After the end of the Reagan Cold War, spending on military defense dropped off and defense contractors found themselves out from under the constant scrutiny of government and enforcers. Following Sept. 11, our modern era Pearl Harbor, spending on defense again began to skyrocket. Spending during the Bush administration dwarfed the amount spent even during the height of the Cold War. Defense spending was around $300 billion in 1985, dropped to less than $240 billion as of 1997 and then climbed to more than double the 1985 spending at more than $600 billion for 2009 taking into account inflation. Ultimately, simultaneous wars in Iraq and Afghanistan played a major role in this historical increase. The government relied extensively on private contractors to both provide support to U.S. troops on the ground and for major reconstruction efforts in Iraq. Notwithstanding these historic expenditures, investigation and prosecution of defense contracting fraud remained relatively dormant during the entire Bush administration. The Center For Public Integrity published an article dated April 1, 2009, Fraud Cases Fell While Pentagon Contracts Surged, that analyzes data obtained from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse that demonstrates this proposition. (Additional statistics from that article are also referred to below.) A Department of Defense Office of Inspector General report to Congress in March 2008 acknowledged that investigation of contracting fraud is an area that dropped in priority, has largely been neglected and is in need of additional Defense Criminal Investigative Services, or DCIS, investment. There have been a host of theories advanced for this drop in enforcement. Some of these are described below. THE RISE OF HEALTH CARE FRAUD PROSECUTIONS With the end of the Cold War and the concomitant drop in defense procurement, government spending increased in other areas the main one being health care. Health care prosecutions, thus, quickly replaced defense contracting prosecutions as a major focus of government and whistleblower enforcement efforts. Indeed, prosecutions and False Claims Act cases brought against organizations and individuals in the health care field increased at a dramatic rate in the 1990s. According to Thomas Grande s article titled The False Claims Act: A Consumer s Tool to Combat Fraud Against the Government published in 2000 in the Loyola Consumer Law Review: Between 1992 and 1996, the number of government cases brought against health care providers increased from 199 to 333. During this same time period, private qui tam cases increased tenfold, rising from 17 to 178. Cases involving health care fraud [rose] from 12% of all cases filed in 1987 to 61% of all cases filed in A DECLINE IN RESOURCES FOR NON-TERRORISM CASES After Sept. 11, counter-terrorism took precedence over many other criminal enforcement efforts. The FBI, in particular, experienced a significant shift of resources. According to the Office of Inspector General Audit report 05-37, [T]he FBI s funded agents for [Criminal Investigative Division]- related programs in its 56 field offices decreased by 1,143 positions between FYs 2000 and 2004, declining from 6,896 to 5,753 during this time period. However, the FBI actually utilized 2,190 fewer field agents on traditional crime matters in FY 2004 than it had in FY While in 2000, the report noted the FBI allocated 75 percent of its field agent workforce to criminal investigative areas, [b]y FY 2004, the proportion of FBI field agents involved in criminal-related matters declined to 65 percent. The FBI s reallocation of agents left numerous criminal squads understaffed and overworked. Moreover, the report concluded that less experienced agents tended to work criminal cases, while counterterrorism matters were staffed by more experienced agents. A LOSS OF INSTITUTIONAL KNOWLEDGE The resources and manpower devoted to anti-fraud efforts in the defense contracting arena also experienced a decline. DCIS is the government enforcer charged with primary oversight to detect, investigate and deter criminal activity by defense contractors. The number of special agents assigned to DCIS experienced a steep drop-off after the 1980s. According to the Center for Public Integrity article, Fraud Cases Fell While Pentagon Contracts Surged, DCIS has been hampered by large cutbacks in personnel that started in the 1990s. Some agencies, like DCIS, are just now trying to catch up in personnel numbers and training. With fewer specialized agents in this area, prosecutorial knowledge of how to investigate and bring defense-contracting fraud cases soon waned. Defense contracting fraud is a complex area that requires time and training to master time and training that was not available with the focus on anti-terrorism investigations. Moreover, the Defense Contract Audit Agency, or DCAA, the agency charged with overseeing defense contracting, likewise was subject to extensive cuts in the 2000s. This further eroded specialized government oversight of these contracts The government has been spending more than $500 billion a year on defense. While the government expenditure on health care is even larger, criminal and civil enforcement efforts focused on defense fraud dropped significantly after the 1980s and are proportionately less than in health care. The end of the 2000s: Signs That Enforcement Is Back Throughout the latter half of the 2000s, the government spent billions on war, reconstruction and recovery efforts in Iraq. This massive government spending has been plagued by repeated allegations of wide-scale fraud, mismanagement and abuse. DCAA issued a series of audit reports between February 2003 and February 2006 that identified $2.1 billion in questioned costs and $1.4 billion in unsupported costs on contracts related to these efforts. In addition, according to a July 2007 report from the Government Accountability Office, titled Rebuilding Iraq: Reconstruction Progress Hindered by Contracting, Security, and Capacity Challenged, Department of Defense contract management has been at high risk for the past 15 years because of its vulnerability to fraud, waste, abuse and mismanagement. The GAO Report also concluded that there are a number of conditions that exist in Iraq that have led to, or will lead to, increased risk of fraud, waste and abuse of U.S. funds. By 2008, the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform identified 199 contracts worth $1.1 trillion that have experienced significant waste, fraud, abuse, or mismanagement across all federal agencies. The report highlighted billions of dollars allegedly mismanaged during the Iraq war. Morgan Lewis associate Viola Vetter contributed to the research and drafting of this article. Records continued from 1 to provide exceptions based on artistic or social value or the apparent age of the performers. Instead, Baylson found that the breadth and scope of the law is necessary to their effectiveness. The plaintiffs also complained that the challenged amendments apply to a vast amount of protected private expression between adults: an army wife ing a suggestive photo of herself to her husband stationed far from home, two adults sexting messages to one another on their cell phones, and adults privately exchanging sexually candid photos with one another on a social networking website, among others. Consenting adults have the right to engage in such sexually explicit expression, the plaintiffs lawyers argued, and the law would chill that speech. But Baylson said the government has promised that it will not target such expression and must be taken at its word. Even assuming that these potential applications of the statutes would be unconstitutional, however, this court rejects plaintiffs contention that, as a result, the statutes are facially overbroad, Baylson wrote. The government has disavowed the enforcement of the statutes beyond pornography intended for sale or trade, and plaintiffs have not alleged that the government has deviated from this position or has sought to enforce the statutes in any of the scenarios identified by plaintiffs here. Baylson also rejected the plaintiffs argument that the law should be struck down because it infringes on the right to speak anonymously. The Supreme Court, Baylson said, has recognized a right to anonymous speech under the First Amendment in some circumstances, but that right is not absolute. While the labeling requirement may result in disclosure of the home address of a producer or performer, this court does not see how an exemption for such scenarios could be provided without undermining the effectiveness and integrity of the statutory scheme, Baylson wrote. In the amicus brief for the ACLU, attorneys Fred T. Magaziner and Kristina C.E. Cole of Dechert, along with ACLU staff attorney Mary Catherine Roper, argue that the law should be struck down because it burdens adult sexual expression that is indisputably lawful. By its plain language, the brief says, the law burdens expressions that are created or viewed for sexual enjoyment as well as expressions created for purposes of art, education or therapy.

Since the program s beginning, it has garnered the support of several highprofile legal figures, including former Pennsylvania Supreme Court Justice James J. Fitzgerald III, who now serves as a senior judge on the Superior Court, and 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Judge Marjorie O. Rendell. Rendell, who has provided the program with curriculum resources and taught in several of the participating high schools, said she thinks the ACE program is successful because it is presented in a way that engages the students and makes them think. I ve found students learn best when someone who doesn t have to be teaching them is Beryllium continued from 1 Inc., which was decided by Philadelphia Common Pleas Judge Allan L. Tereshko, who also dismissed all of the Philadelphia beryllium mass torts on summary judgment. If plaintiffs experts identify more than one cause for a plaintiffs claims, there is a question of fact that must go to the jury, Honik said. You can t expect the plaintiff s experts to rule out other potential causes, Honik said. Neil S. Witkes of Manko Gold Katcher & Fox in Bala Cynwyd, Pa., the defense attorney for Cabot Corp., owner of the plant for at least 50 years before 1986, said that the Supreme Court s ruling is not dispositive. The reason that Tereshko threw out the cases on causation was because plaintiffs experts failed to present medically competent evidence to support a cause-and-effect relationship between the plaintiffs beryllium-related illnesses and their shortness of breath, he said. The plaintiffs also had other health conditions that could be the cause of require them to keep photo IDs on file for government inspection, any more than Congress can require those who demonstrate for disfavored causes to register with the government, the brief says. In the amicus brief on behalf of the members of Congress, attorneys Jay Alan Sekulow, Colby M. May and Stuart J. Roth of the American Center for Law & Justice in Washington, D.C., along with James N. Clymer of Clymer Musser Brown & teaching them, because it brings about a dynamic that impresses the students and allows them to better retain the knowledge that is imparted to them, she said. Fitzgerald, who has taught 12th grade classes at Germantown High School and been a proponent of expanding the program to other venues and counties across Pennsylvania, said the ACE program is not only beneficial for students, but it is also tremendously rewarding for volunteers. Judges and lawyers feel a responsibility to teach young people about the legal system. It lifts our spirits and we really enjoy it, he said. It s a valuable experience for both sides of the equation. Last year, the ACE program was offered in 17 Philadelphia public high schools. However, in the coming year, the ACE committee plans to implement a core school model that will allow the program to restructure and focus on nine or 10 schools where successful relationships have already been established, according to Almquist. Almquist, an attorney with Lopez McHugh, said the committee does not want their medical issues, Witkes said. Honik described beryllium, used in aircraft, missiles, space vehicles, communications satellites, X-ray tubes and nuclear reactors, as probably the most toxic product commonly used in the workplace. Some people can be exposed to beryllium without harm, but some people with a particular genetic marker have an allergic reaction to beryllium because their immune systems identify beryllium as an antigen that must be attacked, according to court papers. Sensitivity to beryllium can be identified through blood tests, and in order to avoid false positives, two positive blood tests are required to establish that someone has beryllium sensitivity, according to court papers. Some, but not all, people with beryllium sensitivity develop chronic beryllium disease (CBD), or a scarring disease of the lungs as the immune reaction forms granulomas in the lungs, according to court papers. CBD is irreversible, but early detection and early treatment can hold off impairment in lung function, Honik said in arguments. All three of the judges on the panel asked questions related to whether the burden to pay for the beryllium sensitivity blood Conrad in Lancaster, Pa., argue that the law was narrowly tailored to achieve its goal of protecting children from the evils of the child pornography industry. The law should be upheld, the Congress members argue, because there was no other way to impose a proof-of-age requirement. The fit between these provisions and the government s paramount interest in ensuring that pornography producers do not exploit minors could hardly be closer. to spread [the program] too thin, as it is most effective in a relationship where both parties feel comfortable and have a track record. She believes this refocused initiative, although involving fewer schools, will ultimately reach more students. The ACE curriculum will also be reworked and made more flexible for the new school year. Volunteers will pick and choose from a variety of lesson plans that will be posted online, which will allow customization of the program to suit different classes, according to Almquist. In addition, the committee is considering a plan to start a new elementary-level ACE program geared at fourth and fifth grade students. If the elementary program were created, the curriculum would likely focus on teaching young children how to engage in dispute resolution without violence, among other law-related topics, Almquist said. By engaging students in civics education at a young age, Almquist hopes the program will motivate and help children who are starting to fall behind in their reading and critical thinking skills. testing should fall on the plaintiffs or the defendants, especially because the defendants are alleged to have exceeded the levels of beryllium allowed under federal Environmental Protection Agency standards. The plaintiffs argued that the science of beryllium-related illnesses has changed since the state Superior Court upheld in 2007 the dismissal of medical monitoring claims in related litigation, Pohl v. NGK Metals Corp. Under the Supreme Court s ruling in the 1997 case Redland Soccer v. Department of the Army, plaintiffs suing for medical monitoring claims must show seven requirements, including that they have a significantly increased risk of contracting a serious latent disease, according to court papers. Under Redland, Witkes said the burden should fall on the plaintiffs to demonstrate that they have beryllium sensitivity before they can bring their cases. We re the alleged tortfeasor... but they have to prove the tort, Witkes said. The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Honik s arguments that beryllium sensitivity is not an absolute indicator of risk of beryllium-related diseases Given the pornography industry s proclivity for using youthful looking performers, there is no more effective means of ensuring that the industry does not employ minors. (Copies of the 112-page opinion in Free Speech Coalition Inc. v. Holder, PICS No , are available from The Legal Intelligencer. Please call the Pennsylvania Instant Case Service at PICS to order or for information. Some cases are not available until 1 p.m.) Rendell supported this view, saying, The formative years are the best time to instill this kind of knowledge and impart [an understanding of civics] to students. The ACE committee is considering several different Philadelphia elementary schools for implementation of the program. Almquist said the ideal school would have a diverse student body and would be located near Center City, so it would be accessible for volunteers who work in the city. Most of the elementary schools being considered are located in the south and southwest sections of the city. Almquist added that the committee is not yet ready to make a final decision. Almquist, Rendell and Fitzgerald have high expectations for the future success of the program. I hope the program will continue to grow and I hope we can better pool our resources and get more and more adults involved in classrooms in Philadelphia, Almquist said. Judges and lawyers cannot close their eyes to the challenges and the really exciting things that are happening in the Philadelphia School District. in rulings last month in Sheridan v. NGK Metals and Anthony v. Small Tube Manufacturing Corp. The court wrote that mere exposure to beryllium does not meet the threshold of establishing a significant increase in risk of developing a berylliumrelated disease. Witkes said in oral arguments that beryllium is distinguished from other dustedinduced tort cases like asbestos and silica because putative plaintiffs who might be injured from exposure to beryllium and those that won t be injured from exposure to beryllium can be separated because of a $250 blood test. Beryllium sensitivity is not a disease... what they really want is what we call screening as opposed to medical monitoring, Witkes said. Plaintiffs co-counsel is Stephan Matanovic of Golomb & Honik.
