    Guardianships in New York are strictly tailored to the particular circumstances. Article 81 of New York’s Mental Hygiene Law allows a court to appoint a guardian to manage the personal and/or financial affairs of an individual deemed incapacitated. The court must find that the alleged incapacitated person (“AIP”) cannot appreciate the nature and consequences of their inability to handle such matters and that the AIP is likely to suffer harm if a guardian is not appointed. As Special Needs Planning Month comes to a close, head over to our blog to learn more about Article 81 Guardianship.

    Part Two: This is a continuing article series on Construction Defects in New York, These include an introduction (part 1), design defects (part 2), defective construction (part 3), improper materials (part 4), improper installations (part 5) and finally important time limitations which apply to seeking legal action for defective construction in New York (part 6). Defects in construction design demonstrate themselves in various and wide-ranging ways, and sometimes by the actions the defects cause others to do.

    Design defects' liability only arises when the architect or engineer failed to perform in accordance with the community standard.

    Menopause in the workplace: Employment Law guidance for Employers from Hatch Brenner Solicitors The 18 October is World Menopause Day, a day that aims to raise awareness of the menopause and the support options available. With many more women in the workplace, and our population living longer, the awareness of the impact of the menopause in the workplace is rightly increasing. Norwich solicitors and Employment Law specialist, Hatch Brenner explore menopause in the workplace. The menopause occurs in women between the ages of 45 – 55, with the average age in the UK being 51 although it can also happen earlier or later. There are 35 million women aged over 50 in the workplace and menopause symptoms can have a significant impact on women, as well as impacting colleagues and organisational management. Menopause symptoms last around four years, and can include: Hot flushes Night sweats Difficulty sleeping Reduced sex drive (libido) Problems with memory and concentration Headaches Mood changes; low mood and anxiety Noticeable heartbeats Joint stiffness, aches and pains Recurrent urinary tract infections (UTIs) Menopause and the law There are provisions within Employment Law that can guide organisations as to supporting their staff. The Equality Act 2010 protects workers against discrimination including because of their sex, disability and age. Whilst menopause and perimenopause (the menopause transitional phase which can occur during the 40s for most women) are not specifically protected under the Equality Act, where a worker is treated unfairly because of menopause and perimenopause, this may amount to discrimination (for sex and/or disability and/or age). This has also been demonstrated in case law – in Davies v Scottish Courts and Tribunals Service menopause symptoms were accepted to be a disability in an employment tribunal. In addition to protection under the Equality Act 2010, the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 says an employer must, where reasonably practical, ensure the health, safety and welfare of their employees at work. What can workplaces do to assist women in the workplace? As the stigma around menopause starts to lift, organisations can help improve their workplace environment to support their staff. In return, this can help reduce staff sickness absence which may be related to menopausal symptoms and help improve staff wellbeing and productivity. Positive actions might include: Offering flexibility including supporting staff to work from home where practicable Improving temperature control and ventilation – providing a fan, and a desk seated near a window that opens Where uniforms are worn, ensure they are well-fitting and comfortable Provide a suitable place for rest Ensure easily available toilet and washroom facilities Provide cold drinking water The role of managers in supporting menopausal staff Ensure women feel confident in approaching their manager to raise concerns and for support Understand how perimenopause and menopause can affect an employee Implement support and working practice and environment changes where appropriate Understand the relevant employment law relating to menopause Offer options for employees who feel unable to approach their managers on the subject including discussions with the human resources team, trade union representatives or counsellors Managing sickness and absence due to menopause Given the employment law protection of employees related to The Equality Act, employers should manage and sickness or absence due to menopause with care. Time off sick because of perimenopause or menopause should be recorded in a way that can be distinguished from other absences. ACAS provide useful guidance on menopause at work.

    Part One: Defects exist throughout all construction projects and it’s likely no construction project is ever completed perfectly. In New York construction however, perfection is not the legal standard by which construction is generally measured. The standard used to judge completed construction is the ordinary and reasonable skill that is usually exercised by architects, engineers, contractors and others in that work.[1]Therefore, not all defects are necessarily actionable under New York construction law. #constructionlaw #constructiondefects #defects

    In New York construction, perfection is not the legal standard; not all defects are necessarily actionable under New York construction law.

    In a recent client conference, I was asked, “So what is arbitration, anyhow?” In the context of a construction claim or in seeking to prevent such a claim, there are several significant advantages that arbitration can provide in lieu of litigation. In today’s challenging business environment, this signifies awareness of the various options available that could make an important impact on your business’ circumstance. Briefly stated, arbitration is a private, informal process by which all parties agree, in writing, to submit their dispute to one or more impartial persons authorized to resolve the controversy by rendering a final and binding award.[i] What makes this process unique is the ability, with some advance consideration, to customize and tailor the dispute resolution process to suit the needs of the company.

  • Samuel Dordulian
    Dordulian Law Group

    10/12/2021

    Attorney Samuel Dordulian Obtains $300K Sexual Assault Verdict Survivor Jamie Nicole Baca Vindicated After Local Newspaper Refers to Case as ‘Crumbling’ Dordulian Law Group (DLG) is pleased to announce a jury trial victory in a sexual assault case against local venture capitalist and Pasadena Angels investment organization member, Mustapha Baha. Despite negative and unfounded press reports, our client, Jamie Nicole Baca, prevailed in court and was awarded a $300,000.00 damages award. WHO: Jamie Nicole Baca approached the local Pasadena Angels investment group (akin to television’s “Shark Tank”) to pitch her company, JNK Cosmetics, in 2016. One of the primary members, Mustapha Baha, initially expressed interest in the venture but then suddenly disappeared. Months later, Ms. Baca sent Mr. Baha a LinkedIn invitation in an effort to clarify why he had abandoned the investment after initially expressing interest. Baha testified that the LinkedIn invitation from Ms. Baca was a clear signal that she must be interested in him romantically, and insisted that soon thereafter the two were officially dating (we were able to demonstrate otherwise with emails and various correspondence proving the relationship remained about business). Baha abused his position of power and influence over this potential investment as a lure to string Ms. Baca along because he found her physically attractive. In order to consider her potential investment, Baha insisted that they have weekly meetings in order to “get to know her personally, not just the company.” The two met on a total of three occasions after the LinkedIn request. Baha falsely testified all meetings were actually dates. At the second meeting, he coaxed Ms. Baca to go to his house under the guise that he had to let his dog out who was stuck there for hours. At his home, Baha showed his true colors and attempted to kiss her. When Ms. Baca rebuffed his advances and told him she was there only for business, he apologized. Later, after insisting that they “work together” to complete her investment, a third and final meeting was scheduled to go over various documents. During that last meeting at his home, Baha again began to compliment her looks and placed his hand on her thigh. When he was rebuffed again, he forcefully groped Ms. Baca and kissed her without consent. He also rubbed his erect penis against her body while continuing the sexual assault, at one point even restraining her arms. Ms. Baca testified she was terrified of what he might do next. Thankfully, she was able to get away. WHAT: Sadly, Baha’s defense attorney, Linda Savitt, attacked Ms. Baca’s character and attempted to victim shame and victim blame throughout the trial. During closing argument, Ms. Savitt even suggested that if Ms. Baca knew that Baha was sexually interested in her, she shouldn’t have shown up at the following meeting wearing a tight yoga outfit with see-through material on the side of the legs. Despite the progress we’ve made with #MeToo, it was sad to see the insinuation that a woman bears the responsibility and blame for aggressive sexual conduct by a man based on the clothing she chooses to wear. It was particularly sad hearing that from another woman. Thankfully, the jury rejected that outrageous suggestion. “As is often the case with wealthy and powerful men, when the woman will not go along with what is demanded, the man simply feels it’s his for the taking,” Ms. Baca’s attorney, Samuel Dordulian, said. “But we were able to marshal the evidence against Baha in this case, and justice prevailed.” TRIAL BY PRESS: A year after filing the initial complaint, a story in the Pasadena Star News claimed through direct quotes from attorney Linda Savitt that Ms. Baca’s lawsuit was “crumbling” and “falling apart.” The story, which ran in October 2019, also suggested Ms. Baca’s lawsuit was harming other #MeToo victims “who have legitimate sexual harassment claims.” The story quoted Baha who (unsurprisingly) “agreed” with Savitt’s sentiment and noted that Ms. Baca “made cynical use of the courts and the #MeToo movement.” Curiously, Ms. Baca was never given an opportunity to comment in the 2019 story which maligned both her reputation and the validity of her claim. But as attorney Samuel Dordulian noted after Wednesday’s trial victory, his client being vindicated is what’s most important. “She’s gone through hell to get this victory, but it was absolutely worth the fight and I’m thrilled that she’s finally vindicated despite so many parties working in unison to smear both her case and her reputation,” Dordulian said. ABOUT DLG: Dordulian Law Group is the nation’s leading sexual assault law firm offering a unique four-tiered form of representation that goes beyond legal expertise to include critical resources and a 24/7 support network of dedicated professionals known as the SAJE Team (Sexual Assault Justice Experts).

    14 Facts & Statistics about Slip & Fall Accidents If you have never thought about the potential dangers associated with slip & fall accidents, you’re not alone. This is despite the fact that in the USA, such accidents are responsible for causing serious injuries. It is worth noticing that slip & fall accidents are often incredibly expensive, including lost wages and medical bills that may put anyone in a tough financial position. Keep in mind that if a property owner doesn’t take care of risky surface hazards, it increases the chances of slip and fall accidents. However, a majority of these accidents or incidents are preventable. If your property owner shows negligence in managing property appropriately, you have the right to file a lawsuit. But to make sure your lawsuit leans in your favor, you must know the facts and statistics. Here, we have outlined ten facts about slip & fall accidents you should know to stand your chance. Ten Facts about Slip & Fall Accidents 1. Slip & Fall Accidents are the Most Important Cause of Injury for Age Groups Typically, slip & fall accidents are more serious for elderly people or older adults. But it doesn’t mean that young people or children don’t slip or fall. In fact, it is one of the leading causes of fatal or non-fatal injuries in almost all age groups. As per the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control survey, cases of slip & fall accidents are relatively less common in individuals between the ages 11 and 25. Despite this fact, such incidents are the second-most common reason for injuries in this age group. Though injuries are non-fatal compared to older adults, they can, in some cases, send sufferers to the emergency room. 2. More Than One Million Individuals Go To an Emergency Rooms for Slip & Fall Accidents Each Year The fact may sound bizarre to you, but more than one million individuals need immediate medical assistance after they slip and fall. That makes an average of over 2000 people going to the hospital each day after a slip & fall accident. More than eight million emergency visits occur due to unintentional falls, out of which 12% are serious accidents. 3. Slip and Fall Accidents May Cost People between $30,000 to $40,000 The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that the average medical bill of a slip & fall accident may go above $30,000. The cost not only devastates families financially with soaring medical charges for physical therapy, lost wages, and potential disability but also increases insurance costs. 4. Medical Bill for Slip & Fall Accidents Total is More Than $34 Billion Yearly Slip & fall accidents causing major injuries may cost more than $34 billion annually. Medical bills may leave families financially destroyed. The victim may also need to pay additional medical bills after an unexpected incident. 5. A Victim of Slip & Fall Accidents Misses an Average of Eleven days at work Slip and fall accidents are a significant reason businesses and companies face loss of work productivity. An employee who meets a slip & fall accident typically requires more than ten days to heal and recover, so they’ll miss about eleven days of work. However, this period may extend if the nature of the injury is serious and the person is not able to return to work for months. In these cases, the worker also loses a significant amount of money or income while during his or her recovery period. 6. Incidences of Slip & Fall Increase with Each Decade of Life Yes, you read it correctly—the risk of slipping and falling increases as you age. In fact, approximately one-third of elderly people (age between 60 and 80) experience frequent slip & fall accidents in the USA, particularly in California. These accidents are also common in people or employees over 55. 7. Five Percent People Break Bones When Fall No matter how scary it may sound, it is one of the facts you should not overlook. Five percent of people slip or fall multiple fractured bones. 20% of these accidents often involve serious injuries, so they require weeks of recovery time and limit the victim’s movement. 8. Falls are Cause of Painful brain injuries. Falling or slipping is the leading cause of brain injuries in people. It is because when people fall, they often hit their head on the ground, a door, or a table surface. It causes traumatic brain injuries, which may have lingering effects on the victim. 9. 95 Percent of Hip Fractures are Due To Fall & Slip Accident Hip fractures are injuries that require invasive surgical treatments. In normal cases, recovery takes months and often requires physical therapy. It restricts victims’ mobility and can have life-altering changes, including suffering and pain. 10. Very few Slip& Fall Accidents Cases Have Jury Trials Victims of slip & fall accidents are usually hesitant to file a personal injury case and testify in the legal procedures. That is why only 2% of personal injury or slip & fall cases lead to any jury trial. 11. Fatalities are Nearly Equally Divided between men and women Fall fatalities are nearly equally divided between men and women. However, more women will experience a slip-and-fall accident. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, falls accounted for 5% of the job-related fatalities for women compared to 11% for men. 12. Every three persons in US over the age of 65 will experience a fall Each year in the United States, one of every three persons over the age of 65 will experience a fall. Half of which are repeat fallers. 13. 1.8 million people over the age of 65 were treated in an emergency room as a result of a fall The CDC also reports that approximately 1.8 million people over the age of 65 were treated in an emergency room as a result of a fall. 14. Falls are the second leading cause of injury-related death For people aged 65-84 years, falls are the second leading cause of injury-related death; for those aged 85 years or older, falls are the leading cause of injury-related death. Summing Up Overall, the facts and statistics highlight the importance of safety precautions you must take to keep yourself safe from any slip& fall accident.
