Legal Question Of The Day

Erick at Peach Pundit passed along a report from the Columbus Ledger-Enquirer that six Georgia legislators have filed a motion to remove the seal in the case of James J. Murtagh vs. The Fulton-Dekalb Hospital Authority etal.

I can confirm the pols involved because I was fortunate enough to see the motion about the same time it was filed yesterday.

I know there are several lawyers who peruse these parts so let's get some opinions flowing. Unofficial of course. Those with conflicts of interest feel free to step out of the room for a moment.

A quick summary.

Murtagh was a physician / professor employed by Emory University who worked at Grady Hospital.

He sued after receiving a poor peer review claiming retribution for pointing out potential malfeasance in the Emory / Grady agreement. In the end, the parties settled and agreed to have the case sealed.

Enter, the current Grady fiscal crisis brouhaha.

The position of the legislators is since public funds were possibly involved, such a case by statute cannot be sealed and even if it could be sealed, there is a compelling interest to get to the bottom of the allegations of corruption.

Although I haven't seen the response yet, I imagine the hospital and an army of attorney's response will be a seal is a seal and if we start piercing them willy nilly Lord know what will be next. Like, maybe some salacious previously sealed settlements involving high-profile politicians.

Whew boy, do we have the possibility of a particularly vile witches brew.

Thoughts?

Unfortunately, this is the only legal seal I ever come into contact with.

Not too many sealed cases down in the trenches of criminal, eh? Privacy is for rich people or something, I suppose.

Only rich folks and juveniles (and I don't do juvenile work).

Roulette Rules and Information



Online Roulette Some people like the bright lights of Las Vegas. They book their room in the Flamingo, fly down, see some shows, eat at the Vegas buffets, and bet a little money on the roulette wheel. However, this is an expensive, once a year type proposition. What happens if you are bored one night, and want to play some roulette, right there and right then? Booking a red eye flight to Vegas isn't an option. This is exactly the reason why playing at online casinos has sky-rocketed in popularity over the last few years. It's fun, it's quick, and it mimicks the real life experience of playing at a real casino. Why play roulette online instead of at a real casino? As I already mentioned, the cost of playing at Vegas is much higher. You have your room fee, your plane ticket, the cost of eating out while there, etc. It is very expensive. However, playing online is free. You can play at 3 am in the morning, while dressed in your bathrobe, eating a bowl full of popcorn. No one will rush you; you can take 20 minutes to place your next bets. You can have a notebook full of roulette strategies in front of you and no one will hassle you. The allure of the online casino is the convenience and ease of use.
