If you file a lawsuit in which you are claiming an injury, you should always be cautious; however, this situation takes that to the exteme.
This year will mark the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream Speech.” Fifty years later this speech is still powerful and moving. It is the most famous speech from quite possibly the greatest speaker in American history. Tomorrow we will celebrate MLK Day across the country. While many people will simply view this as a day off of work, I want to make sure we don’t lose sight of what this man meant to our country. Unfortunately, there are still pockets of this country where racism is an issue, but we have sure come a long way…..and let’s hope will continue to move forward.
By now almost everyone is aware of the Jerry Sandusky trial. Even for those who tend to tune into ESPN instead of the evening news, there was no escape, thanks in large part to the role Penn State University and their football team played in the saga. To put this into context, the verdict was read at the same time as the NHL draft, less than 24 hours after the NBA crowned a new champion, and during the College World Series; however, the lead story on SportsCenter that night was the 45 individual guilty verdicts handed down by the jury. There is still a lot that we don’t know about the whole situation, and some things we will never know, such as what did the late Joe Paterno know about Sandusky’s actions. One thing we do know, barring a successful appeal by Sandusky’s legal team, is that Sandusky will die while in the custody of the Pennsylvania prison system. He is 68 years old and facing a minimum of 60 years of incarceration.
Welcome to my blog at LeoneLegal.com. I will be periodically blogging about legal issues and updates in the law, and discussing how you may be affected. Also, I will blog about current events or other topics which are in the news. Today, however, I want to blog about Goldy’s Run, which is a 10 mile, 5K or Kid’s Run being held on the University of Minnesota’s campus next month.
