A Stanford University medical professor says ‘academic freedom is dead’ after his life became a ‘living hell’ for defying coronavirus lockdown orders and the “scientific clergy” during the pandemic.

“The basic principle is that if you don’t have protection and academic freedom in difficult cases, when a faculty member has an idea that is unpopular among some other faculty – a powerful faculty, or even l administration… If they don’t protect it then you don’t have any academic freedom,” Dr. Jay Bhattacharya told Fox News Digital in a phone interview.

Bhattacharya is a full professor of medicine at Stanford University and also an economist who is director of the Stanford Center for Demography and Economics of Health and Aging.

He has come under fire during the pandemic after co-writing the Great Barrington Statement, which was an open letter signed by thousands of doctors and scientists in 2020 denouncing lockdowns as harmful. Bhattacharya was joined by Harvard medical professor Dr. Martin Kulldorff and Oxford professor Dr. Sunetra Gupta to co-author the paper.

US VACCINATION CAMPAIGNS ‘JUST WRONG’, SAYS STANFORD PROFESSOR: ‘YOU DON’T BULLY PEOPLE’

Dr. Jay Bhattacharya speaks during a panel discussion with members of the House Freedom Caucus on the COVID-19 pandemic at the Heritage Foundation on Thursday, November 10, 2022.

The statement was quickly denounced by other health leaders including the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, Dr. Anthony Fauci, who called the call for herd immunity in the document “nonsense and very dangerous.”

Bhattacharya spoke at the Academic Freedom Conference at the Stanford Graduate School of Business earlier this month and said that in the present day, “we have a high clergy who are declaring from above what is true and what is not true”.

“When you take a position that contradicts the scientific clergy, your life becomes hell,” he told the conference. “You face a deeply hostile work environment.”

Bhattacharya said that shortly after Great Barrington’s statement attracted attention, he received death threats, hate mail and questions about where he receives funds, which, he said. he noted, “Most of my money has come from the NIH for most of my life.”

“The purpose of the one-page document was to tell the public that there was no scientific consensus in favor of the lockdown, that in fact many epidemiologists, many doctors, many other people – eminent persons – did not agree with the consensus,” Bhattacharya said. said during his 10-minute speech at the conference.

And on campus, “a chill” on the debate set in and he was disinvited from giving a lecture on campus and an effort to organize a stalled COVID policy debate, the College Fix Reported of his remarks at the conference.

“If Stanford were really really committed to academic freedom, they would have … worked to make sure there were debates and discussions, seminars, where these ideas were discussed among professors,” whether academics were to deal or not, he told Fox News Digital. after his speech at the conference.

Bhattacharya argued in his comments to Fox News that in many scientific circles during the pandemic, “power has replaced the idea of ​​truth as the guide.”

FAUCI REFUSES TO EXCULATE HIMSELF FOR LOUDING VERY RESPECTED EPIDEMIOLOGISTS

“So you have someone like Tony Fauci saying without irony that if you’re interrogating me, you’re not just interrogating a man, you’re interrogating science itself. It’s an exercise in raw power, where he effectively places himself as the king of science rather than a genuine desire to learn the truth.”

“They systematically tried to give the impression that everyone agreed with their ideas on COVID policy, when in fact there was deep disagreement between scientists and epidemiologists on the right strategy. “That’s why we wrote the Great Barrington statement to tell the public there was this disagreement. There was another alternative policy available,” he said.

Bhattacharya charged at the conference that “academic freedom is dead” and that he was left without the support of Stanford leaders.

OUTGOING NIH DIRECTOR SAYS ‘HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS WILL DIED’ FROM COVID IF WE HAD NOT LISTEN TO HIM

“The policy of the university, when necessary, is to allow this kind of hostile work environment,” he said. “What if there had been an open scholarly debate on campus, sponsored by the university about this? So people would know that there are legitimate alternative viewpoints?”

He argued that if the Stanford president had pushed for a debate when drafting the Great Barrington statement, “there would have been a huge controversy about it.”

“But at the same time, the hostile work environment would have dissipated because what he would have said was, ‘Look, there’s a debate, it’s legitimate to have this debate, a place like Stanford is where this debate should take place. “

Notion will help you write your daily content, with the help of AI https://18-98plus.com/notion-will-help-you-write-your-daily-content-with-the-help-of-ai/ Fri, 18 Nov 2022 09:54:01 +0000 https://18-98plus.com/notion-will-help-you-write-your-daily-content-with-the-help-of-ai/ Notion, the app best known for its note-taking software, is introducing a new feature that will help users write their daily content, whether it’s a blog post, meeting notes or descriptions. post office to give some examples.

Notion, the app best known for its note-taking software, is introducing a new feature that will help users write their daily content, whether it’s a blog post, meeting notes or descriptions. post office to give some examples. Of course, it will rely on artificial intelligence (AI) to achieve this. The feature is currently part of a private alpha test and users must join a waiting list. Only if they are approved will they be allowed to use the Notion AI feature.

“We’re bringing Notion AI to the private alpha, bringing the power of artificial intelligence right into your Notion workspace,” the announcement blog post reads. According to the company, Notion AI is billed as “a writing assistant” to help users “write, brainstorm, edit, summarize, etc. “.

If you think Notion is planning to replace all of a user’s writing, then wait. Currently, Notion AI is billed as a partner, designed to help users “save time or spend it more wisely”. His writing may not always be good enough to publish as is, but the idea here is to help and assist users rather than take over. The Verge points out that right now, users can ask the AI ​​to create whatever kind of content they might need, and that could be anything from a blog post to a recruiting email. The app then creates this content for them.

The company has listed examples of where Notion AI can help. It could help users write their first draft on a topic and turn some ideas into a note. It will also help give a list of ideas on anything, according to the blog post.

Of course, the feature will also act as an editor, whether for “spelling, grammar or even translation”. The blog post, “Notion AI detects errors or translates entire messages to help ensure writing is accurate and actionable.” Finally, it can also be used to summarize a long meeting or document with AI extracting the most important points and actions.

The announcement of Notion AI is interesting as we see that AI is being used more and more for “creative tasks” While the use of AI for art has become popular thanks to services such as DALL E 2 for Midjourney is gaining popularity, The use of AI in writing is still new. It should be noted that Google is already testing how LaMDAits AI-based chatbot, could help fiction writers. Google showcased fiction written with the help of LAMDA last month as part of its Wordcraft project.

But Google also admitted that LaMDA alone is not capable of writing fiction and still depends on contributions from human writers. LaMDA is still a tool, meant to help writers, not take over. Well, at least for now.

A former member of Justin Trudeau’s security team may have leaked the prime minister’s schedule, according to an intelligence document filed ahead of the investigation into the federal government’s use of the Emergencies Act l last winter.

A “person of interest” profile from the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) citing the RCMP, a former RCMP officer “reportedly leaked the Prime Minister’s schedule a few months ago.” The document is dated January 30, 2022.

The document says the individual – whose name is redacted – resigned from the RCMP in 2021 in response to the federal government’s vaccination mandate for the RCMP. The mandate came into force on October 6, 2021.

The document – again quoting the RCMP – said the individual was also a sniper and intelligence officer. The document did not indicate who received the leaked information.

“[Redacted] has been very vocal on social media in his belief that vaccination mandates are in violation of the Canadian Constitution,” the document states.

The Public Order Emergency Commission inquiry is holding hearings in Ottawa to investigate the federal government’s decision to invoke the Emergencies Act to end an anti-vaccine protest that crippled downtown Ottawa for weeks last winter.

The profile says the former RCMP officer is involved with the “Mounties For Freedom” group, made up of current and former Mounties who oppose COVID-19 public health measures.

Although the individual is not named, his redacted photo is from a YouTube interview with Daniel Bulford, a former RCMP officer whose work history and post-RCMP activities match the profile.

In this interview, published Nov. 9, 2021, Bulford told former philosophy professor Julie Ponesse that he had become disillusioned with protective policing — and that Trudeau’s politics had contributed to his disillusionment.

“I admit I think it made a difference who was in power. I think so,” Bulford said in the video.

“It’s not that I don’t care about his safety. It’s just that I knew my heart wasn’t really in it anymore and I was lying to myself if I stayed in that role.”

Bulford said he has been on leave since the warrant took effect, but added that he is still technically employed by the RCMP.

The person of interest profile says the RCMP officer who leaked the Prime Minister’s schedule was “the self-described ‘in charge’ of the Freedom Convoy 2022 command post.”

Bulford did not respond to a CBC News request for comment. He told the Globe and Mail last week that he never revealed any sensitive or craft information that would be protected under information security law.

The Prime Minister Protection Detail (PMPD), a unit of the RCMP, is responsible for protecting prime ministers and their families 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

The RCMP did not respond to questions from CBC about why it suspects a former officer leaked the schedule, when the schedule was leaked and to whom.

An RCMP spokesperson said they will not comment on matters related to the so-called “freedom convoy” – although the leak occurred months before the convoy’s protest began.

“Please note that RCMP officials will appear before the Public Order Emergency Commission inquiry in November and will refrain from commenting on any testimonies or issues related to the freedom convoy until then in order to respect investigation and its progress,” the spokesperson said in an email. .

A spokesman for the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said in an email that the PMO was “not in a position to comment on security matters”.

Trudeau adopted a number of notable security measures during his tenure as prime minister. He canceled a rally and wore a protective vest.

Trudeau also had gravel was thrown at him as he boarded a bus in London, Ontario last year during the federal election campaign. Police charged Shane Marshall of St. Thomas, Ont., of assault with a deadly weapon in connection with this incident.

Bulford is expected to testify Friday at the Emergencies Act inquest.

The leak is troubling, say security experts

Wesley Wark, senior fellow at the Center for International Governance Innovation, which specializes in security and intelligence, said the alleged leak was troubling.

“The Prime Minister must trust the RCMP Protective Policing Section not only to protect him, but also to keep information about his movements secure,” Wark told CBC News.

Leaks of such sensitive information could also affect Canada’s security reputation among other countries, Wark said.

“States are rightly concerned about the reputation they may have for protecting secrets, and that relates to intelligence secrets, and that relates to secrets, for example, around their ability to protect VIPs,” he said. he declared.

“For a country like Canada, which prides itself on its international commitment and the various roles it plays within the international community, it wants to be able to welcome, and of course protect, heads of state, for example, or key ministers who may be visiting Ottawa or elsewhere in Canada, against any security threats. »

Pierre-Yves Bourduas, former assistant commissioner of the RCMP, said the profile does not indicate that more than one person may have been involved in the leak of sensitive information. He added that the profile cites only one potential leak that allegedly happened months before the profile was written.

“There does not appear to be any recent information that [has been] received from the prime minister’s security service,” Bourduas said.

Bourduas said it should also be noted that the profile described the individual as “seemingly cooperative and outgoing with peaceful intentions.”

But Bourduas said a leak of sensitive information would still be alarming – and potentially dangerous for officers tasked with protecting the prime minister.

“You would have to really dig deep and try to figure out what the source of this particular leak is,” Bourduas said.

Channel 5The forays into comedy have been tumultuous to say the least. But among the American imports and endless talking head shows are some hidden homegrown gems. at Angelo maybe just the best of the bunch.

Sharon HorganThe journey of onscreen is proof that you can have the best screenplay in the world, but it takes a lot of luck to carve out a career. Horgan and Dennis Kelly, who met while working in youth theater, started by writing scripts together and sending them. Eventually, they wrote material for sketch shows and won the New Comedy Award, which opened doors to the industry for them. But he was bringing material to the animated comedy monkey dust (20032005) who made her known more widely – notably that of producer Harry Thompsonwith whom Horgan and Kelly would develop Tie rod (20062009).

But it was Bwark Productions who Horgan would team up with to make at Angelo. Executed by Iain Morris and Damon Beeley – not yet the famous creators of Intermediate – the company had a regular series of sitcoms on its roster, including Free Agents (which Horgan also starred in), and the duo was starting to make its mark. It would take four years to get at Angelo from the script to the screen, possibly broadcast in 2007with scripts edited by Robert Popernow best known for his own later creation, Friday night dinner.

Originally, at Angelo was written as a pseudo-reality similar to Office, with characters speaking directly to the camera. During its development, it went through two pilot scripts before Five ordered the series — one of several co-ordered with satellite broadcaster Paramount Comedy — on the condition that Horgan ditch the docusoap angle and turn it into a full-fledged sitcom.

In the press kit for the series, co-star Miranda Hart called Horgan “the general public Julia Davis“, which, given the acerbic nature of his writing, is an apt comparison and gives you an idea of ​​the kind of comedy to expect. But unlike Davis, whose monstrous characters dominate the screen, Horgan’s characters are, if not always sympathetic, at least redeemable, with shades of gray.

Angelo’s. Angelo (Steve Brody)

The bulk of the action takes place in the titular Greasy Spoon cafe, located just off Trafalgar Square. Steve Brodywho memorably played David Brent’s gormless agent in Office Special Christmas, is its eponymous owner: an unwavering optimist who, although himself an immigrant (Italian), worries about the influx of foreigners due to the upcoming Olympic Games. His carefree daughter Maria, played by Shelley Longworthdreams of escaping the boring waitress drudgery to become a famous singer.

at Angelo is a true ensemble comedy with regular barflies like any other establishment. Horgan herself takes on the role of Karen, a policewoman who, along with Paul Garnier as husband and work partner Paul, has trouble conceiving. There is also Alicia, Maria’s best friend, with whom the actor Alice Lowe has a ton of fun and in many cases steals entire scenes, such as in Episode 1 when she tries to impress Maria’s boyfriend by demonstrating some less than stellar dance moves.

So there is Simon Farnaby‘s Kris, an aspiring comedian who is actually one of those self-painted human statues that populate any tourist hotspot; and Kim’s wall is Russell, a henpected husband too terrified to tell his wife he’s lost his job, so he spends all day at the cafe instead, a running gag being Angelo’s annoyance that he’s been sitting around for hours hours with just one drink. Rounding out the regular cast is Javone Prince as Mickey P, Maria’s budding music star boyfriend, whom Alicia also has plans for.

Guest stars included Dennis Pennis himself, Paul Kaye, as Paul’s obnoxious and sinister brother who is infatuated with Karen; and Belinda Stewart-Wilsonwho would go on to play Will’s Mum in Intermediateis the shrewd and shrewd businesswoman who, throughout the series, tries to manipulate Angelo into selling the establishment to his conglomerate – Angelo being so naive with optimism that he doesn’t notice how badly the case is horrible.

Angelo’s. Picture shows left to right: Mickey P (Javone Prince), Alicia (Alice Lowe), Maria (Shelley Longworth), Dave (Paul Garner), Angelo (Steve Brody), Karen (Sharon Horgan), Kris (Simon Farnaby ), Russell (Kim Wall), Shelley (Miranda Hart)

Horgan is of course a superb writer, and her ability to create fully three-dimensional characters is evident from the first episode, in which every major character is introduced with economy and speed while giving each their own plot thread.

Much of the humor is drawn from awkward interactions and social missteps. Horgan and director Chloe Thomas allow scenes to continue just a little longer, holding the moment so that all the horror of each scenario can unfold. But the sheer number of regular characters may not have worked in the show’s favor: juggling everyone’s screen time, each storyline competes for what little space there is. On the other hand, the fact that she manages to handle so many characters while giving punchlines to each of them is impressive, and immediately marks at Angelo like a cut above.

In agreement with Horgan’s other screenwriting companies, at Angelo weaves a dark, cynical trail through his heart. Miranda HartShelley’s taxi driver, for example, provides a good running gag by showing up at inopportune times without an iota of customer service. But Hart imbues him with the despair of a sad, lonely act that shines through in his performance, and the same goes for the vast majority of the other characters. Loneliness is part of the DNA of all Angelo customers in one way or another, and in this regard, unknowingly, the café is the beating heart of their community.

Angelo’s. Kris (Simon Farnaby)

Unfortunately, Channel 5 announced plans to cut their comedy budget – effectively canceling at Angelo before Sharon Horgan and the Bwark the team had finished making the show. It’s a shame, not least because the world of characters she built over the course of the series was ripe for further exploration.

Horgan said of the series in an interview that “I really liked the people I worked with on at Angelothere were some great comedic performances there.” Seen now, it’s a fascinating document of the early work of many highly successful comedic actors. Miranda Hart of course conquered the studio sitcom with Miranda; while Lowe and Farnaby went on to carve out very successful careers in the film industry.

Although Sharon Horgan played a supporting role in the highly underrated Todd Margaret’s increasingly bad decisions the following year, his next adventure as a screenwriter would not come before 2012when she joined Holly Walsh for writing dead bossa prison sitcom for BBC Three which in many ways reflected the overall dynamic of at Angeloalbeit in a much more difficult environment.

After such a strong start, Horgan only went from strength to strength, creating Sarah Jessica Parker vehicle Divorce for HBO and hits Channel 4 sitcom Disaster with American comics Rob Delaney – and more recently at the time of writing, being behind the famous AppleTV+ dark comedy-drama bad sisters. With many other projects on the way, his status as one of the best comedy writers of a generation shouldn’t be diminished.


at Angelo

Is there anything more definitely British than the ‘greasy spoon’ experiment? Full English breakfasts, mud-colored cups of tea, chipped Formica tables, signed publicity photos of fading celebrities who may have walked away that way for a little (fried) slice of coffee life. It is arguably one of Britain’s greatest traditions; especially when run by foreigners.

Angelo’s is a café in the heart of London, a stone’s throw from the tourist mecca of Trafalgar Square, the grandeur of Whitehall and the sleazy sex shops of Soho. This unique geographical location also makes it the meeting place for a whole heterogeneous team of diverse and skilfully drawn characters from the writer’s imagination. Sharon Horgan (Tie rod, Annually residual).

Featuring Steve Brody and Shelley Longworth alongside Morgan, Kim’s wall, Simon Farnaby and Alice Lowe, at Angelo is a sight not to be missed (and a cafe you probably wouldn’t want to eat at).

The lyrics “We only said goodbye with words” were written and sung in Back to Black by Amy Winehouse. The song was about the end of a relationship and the theme of goodbye. According to Washington law, “words of farewell” are not sufficient in a divorce to establish separation and the end of the marital community. The logistics of “Goodbyes” are difficult in the event of a divorce, and the date of separation is often disputed. For example, if the spouses live separately without being divorced and one of the spouses wins the lottery. Are earnings a separate property? Or do they belong to the marital community?

In Washington, the date of separation determines the end of the marital community, and this date may be even more important than the date of final divorce. The “date of separation” is the date on which the marriage is considered to be terminated for the purposes of property division. Property acquired before the date of separation is considered community property and property acquired after the date of separation is separate property under Washington law. RCW 26.16.140 states that where spouses or domestic partners “live separately, their respective income and accumulations shall be the separate property of each”.

The date of separation therefore naturally affects the determination of the classification of an asset or a debt (as well as an income or an expense) in joint property or in separate property. These financial considerations may be significant enough to motivate one party to dispute or challenge the separation date if, as a result, they can potentially share the value of an asset or cause the other party to share in indebtedness. Assets that may be at risk are bonuses, stock awards or restricted stock units, and pension contributions to a 401k.

The Washington Supreme Court has interpreted the “separate life” law as requiring proof that a marriage is “dead” before a court can characterize property acquired by either spouse as separate property. When and/or if a marriage is “extinguished” is often the source of disputes. The legal standard is high and requires that both the parties no longer wish to continue the marriage. In a divorce case, this often means the marriage is not extinguished until a divorce is filed with the court. The spouse who wants to benefit from the community of property will generally want to have the presumption of a longer marriage and by extension, of a later date of separation.

Often the date of separation is unclear. Some examples of this are when the parties live under one roof in separate rooms. Or if they live apart but follow marriage counseling and take occasional vacations together. Or one spouse may be having an affair and know their marriage is over, but the other spouse has no idea there is an affair going on. Or maybe they’re going through a “trial separation” but haven’t told their kids or family about it.

How then to prove the date of separation and that the marriage is extinguished? Proving the date of separation requires corroboration and this can be done in several ways:

One form of proof is if either spouse directly writes down their intention to separate and file for divorce. They must not only prove their intention, but also provide proof of it. How do they do this? The easiest way is to express his intention in writing: he can write a letter or send an email to his spouse so that he has objective proof of his state of mind. The separation is recorded in a document linked to a specific date. Moreover, actions speak louder than words; they shouldn’t continue to take vacations together, post couple photos on Facebook, or send vacation cards together. Ideally, they would also start using separate bank accounts.

Another form of evidence is that of a third party witness, other than either spouse. When separating, it is advisable not only to inform your spouse in writing, but also to inform someone else – a friend or a relative – of the separation and also show the friend or the family member you separated. The signing of the rental agreement could be used as proof for the purpose of establishing the date of separation.

Investors Must Act Quickly or Waive Rights to Claims Under Soon-Expiring NAFTA Chapter 11 | Hogan Lovells https://18-98plus.com/investors-must-act-quickly-or-waive-rights-to-claims-under-soon-expiring-nafta-chapter-11-hogan-lovells/ Thu, 20 Oct 2022 21:21:54 +0000 https://18-98plus.com/investors-must-act-quickly-or-waive-rights-to-claims-under-soon-expiring-nafta-chapter-11-hogan-lovells/ Introduction Currently, NAFTA Chapter 11 protects U.S. investors and their investments in Canada and Mexico, Canadian investors and their investments in the U.S. and Mexico, and Mexican investors and their investments in the U.S. and Canada .

Introduction

Currently, NAFTA Chapter 11 protects U.S. investors and their investments in Canada and Mexico, Canadian investors and their investments in the U.S. and Mexico, and Mexican investors and their investments in the U.S. and Canada . Foreign investors, including corporate investors and individuals, have rights that could result in damages to compensate for damages caused by the United States, Canada or Mexico to the investments of such foreign investors. Investors could file ISDS arbitration claims seeking compensation for expropriation, violation of fair and equitable treatment, and/or discriminatory treatment in violation of national treatment and nation la more favored.

NAFTA ended on July 1, 2020. However, the United States-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA), which replaced NAFTA, extended NAFTA Chapter 11 ISDS rights for three years for legacy investment requests.1 This three-year window is coming to an end. end and investors must file a request for arbitration before July 1, 2023or they will lose all claims under NAFTA Chapter 11.

Effective July 1, 2023, the protections contained in NAFTA’s successor agreement, the USMCA, will remain. The USMCA eliminated ISDS fees for American investors in Canada or Canadian investors in the United States. It only protects American investors in Mexico and Mexican investors in the United States, and reduced those rights from those that currently exist under NAFTA. In addition, Canadian investors can bring investment disputes against Mexico under the high-level Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP).

NAFTA Article 1119 also requires the aggrieved foreign investor to deliver to the United States, Canada, or Mexico written notice of intent to submit claims to arbitration (notice of intent) “at least 90 days before the claim is submitted”. Under this procedural rule, the deadline for filing a notice of intent and triggering the start of a NAFTA legacy dispute is earlier than April 1, 2023.

What steps should investors take before starting arbitrage?

Under NAFTA, a Notice of Intent is a preliminary document used to initiate discussions with the foreign government seeking to resolve the dispute amicably. He intends to put the government on notice of a dispute. The notice of intention is a preliminary step to filing requests for arbitration. The notice of intent initiates the reflection or consultation period. Filing a Notice of Intent is not the same as filing Requests for Arbitration – it is simply a mechanism to start the clock on waiting times specified in treaties and to facilitate negotiation with the host government to resolve the dispute. During this period, investors will attempt to resolve the dispute amicably before commencing any ISDS arbitration as a formal disputed matter.

If 90 days have passed after the Notice of Intent was filed and a settlement has not been reached, the investor may file the Request for Arbitration, a more detailed document formally beginning the arbitration. If the arbitration proceeds, the parties will select arbitrators and exchange written submissions and document disclosures. The panel of arbitrators will hear the parties’ arguments and ultimately render a decision in the form of a binding arbitration award.

Why file claims under NAFTA before the deadline?

Because of NAFTA’s substantive strong protections, significant procedural advantages, and the large number of proven investment arbitration cases under NAFTA, NAFTA is a leading international organization as the basis for investment claims. When legacy NAFTA claims are no longer available, investors can lose valuable rights and damage claims.

The USMCA is another international agreement that could serve as a basis for filing ISDS claims. However, NAFTA contains a broader scope of substantive protections, broader ISDS rights, and fewer procedural hurdles. USMCA protection standards, on the other hand, are more limited.

The USMCA’s investment arbitration mechanism covers two distinct categories of investments. In the first category of the USMCA, general investors can only claim discrimination and direct expropriation. In the second category, only investors in specific sectors can claim the broader treaty protections. NAFTA does not make this distinction and grants equal protection to different types of investments.

For more details on the USMCA Investment Chapter and associated ISDS rights, see our previous article: “The USMCA Goes Into Force: A Snapshot of Its Investment Chapter.”

Under the USMCA, the governments of the United States, Canada, and Mexico will still have access to state-to-state dispute settlement to resolve investment disputes. However, there are very few examples of state-to-state disputes under international investment agreements.

Additional Considerations

NAFTA allows investors to seek damages involving harmful actions taken by the United States, Canada and Mexico. In order to successfully pursue a claim under NAFTA, an investor must prepare a detailed factual record to establish treaty violations. The first step in claiming such damages is to submit a Notice of Intent before April 1, 2023 so as not to lose these rights.

The following article was originally published on News5Cleveland.com and is published in the Ohio Capital Journal under a content sharing agreement. Unlike other OCJ stories, it is not available for free republication by other news outlets because it is owned by WEWS in Cleveland.

The makeup of Ohio’s next Supreme Court is arguably the most significant makeup the state’s highest court has faced in decades.

The court has been controlled by Republicans since 1986, but that could change in November. Three places are open. These races are critical but often under-researched by voters.

The Ohio Debate Commission announced on Monday that there would be no more court hearings. The commission said chief justice nominees Sharon Kennedy and Jennifer Brunner had stopped negotiating.

The next Ohio Supreme Court (OSC) will decide abortion, environmental, and LGBTQ+ rights laws. Voters on each side said it was the most important judicial line-up in decades.

OCJ/WEWS is hosting a series on CSO candidates. This is the second edition, which focuses on one of the two posts of justice.

RELATED: Candidates for Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Have Starkly Different Backgrounds, Ideologies and Priorities

Candidates

Judges are supposed to be elected as nonpartisan candidates, but for the first time, candidates’ partisan affiliations will be listed on the ballot. For clarity, OCJ/WEWS uses alphabetical order when sharing candidate responses to questions.

Republican Justice Pat DeWine joined the Supreme Court in 2017 and is now running for his current seat. He had served as a judge on the Court of Appeals for the First District and the Court of Common Pleas for Hamilton County. He is the eldest son of Governor Mike DeWine. He also finds time to be an adjunct professor at the University of Cincinnati Law School. Prior to joining the bench, he practiced corporate law for over a decade.

Democratic Judge Marilyn Zayas has served on the First District Court of Appeals since 2016. She is a frequent guest judge on all the different courts, such as the OSC and many other appellate courts. She sits on the OSC’s Ethics, Professionalism and Diversity Committee and the Character and Fitness Board of Directors. She has nearly 20 years of experience in private law.

Judicial philosophy

DeWine is a strong proponent of judicial restraint, which generally refers to upholding precedent and respecting textualism. Textualism is a theory of looking at the ordinary language of legal text instead of trying to find the intent of why the bill was proposed, according to Congress.

“I’m someone who believes the role of judges is to apply the laws as they are written,” DeWine said. “I don’t think judges should legislate from the bench or impose their own personal opinions.”

Zayas’ philosophy grew out of her difficult upbringing, which made her want to give everyone a fair chance at justice, she said.

“I want everyone who comes to every court in all 88 counties not to believe, but to know that they have a fair chance to be heard,” Zayas said. “And how you do that by faithfully applying the law and the Constitution equally to everyone, regardless of any influence outside of politics.”

Judicial philosophy — background

DeWine recently came under fire for telling a political action group in a campaign investigation that abortion is not a constitutional right, which has Democrats and nonpartisan legal experts alleging that he violated Ohio’s code of judicial ethics. Giving a partisan opinion on a subject that he will have to decide has led lawyers to call it a campaign promise and a prejudice of a case.

The investigation into comments made about abortion by the three GOP justices did not occur until after interviews with the OSC were completed.

RELATED: 3 Ohio court contenders charged with violating ethics code, tell PAC that abortion is not a constitutional right

DeWine’s relationship with his father also became a point of contention during the redistricting case. Although the majority of the court assessed whether the elder DeWine would be held in contempt for failing to follow the court’s instructions for the constitutional maps, the judge did not recuse himself from the case. The judge has previously argued that he is able to review cases fairly and without bias.

Redistricting and what they would have changed or hoped would be different

DeWine didn’t answer that question, but instead explained that he couldn’t speak to upcoming cases.

“It’s a case that’s still pending, so we’re really not allowed to comment on that,” he said. “We are not authorized to comment on cases pending before our court or any other court.”

Knowing the case will soon be heard, Zayas acknowledged she couldn’t speak to it, but added that respect for the Ohio Supreme Court must be in place and judicial ethics must be followed.

“It’s really important to honor the integrity of the court and to honor the decisions that have been made,” she said.

A case or project in their career that they are proud of

DeWine was part of the 4-3 minority opinion in a case involving cash bail and bail system reform. The majority upheld a lower court ruling that a defendant’s bail had been set at an unconstitutional level. Then came the debate about considering public safety when bailing alleged “violent criminals.”

“I believe that partly because of this dissent and indeed many fallout from the majority decision, the state legislature found it necessary to put a constitutional amendment, number 1, on the ballot,” did he declare.

Zayas is proud of her work to make the justice system fairer. A teenage mother of three had tested positive for marijuana, leading her to undergo a random drug test. She passed all the tests, but when it was time for her to testify, she couldn’t be taken to court. The judge continued his trial without his testimony. When she objected to this and ended up in court at a later date, they still wouldn’t let her speak, Zayas said.

“We are not only talking about the right to be a parent, but also about the right of children to be raised by their parents,” she said.These are issues that really come down to constitutional rights and individual rights.

The Constitution as a Living Document

DeWine does not buy into the idea that the Constitution is a living document, he said.

“I think, basically, when you say that, what you’re doing is allowing any judge to impose their view of what the Constitution should be,” he said. declared. “As far as the Ohio Constitution is concerned, it’s actually much easier to amend. So I think that’s the process that people who want to change the Constitution should go through, not ask judges to rewrite the Constitution.

It’s a loaded question because it was politically created, Zayas replied. There is actually a cover letter that accompanies the Constitution, but it is not published much anymore, she said.

“The cover letter makes it very clear that the Constitution is a concession document,” she added. “If you read it, what it essentially says is that it is in some ways an imperfect document, except for the ideals that are espoused in the Constitution.”

Why voters should choose them

Ohio needs to be a place where the rule of law is protected and where people feel safe, DeWine said. Ensuring the law is stable and predictable helps the economy grow, he added. He also believes that judges should apply the law as written.

“My philosophy brings this fairness and equality before the law because we treat everyone the same,” he said. “If we have a stable and predictable legal environment, it makes it easier for people to invest in state jobs and do things to make Ohio a better place to live and raise a family.”

If the state wants a fair, focused and dedicated candidate, it should choose Zayas, she said. She is running what she calls a one-term campaign, which means re-election will play no part in her behavior on the pitch. She will simply fight for what is right and what the Constitution stands for, not outside of political benefits or monetary gain.

“The one thing I will calculate is to serve the community at a particularly important time when we are losing faith in our justice system and we have very important issues in our community that we need to address,” she said. declared. “One thing that I find very important is our constitutional rights and our individual rights,” she said.

The winner of the 2020 presidential election

Although Judge Brunner and Kennedy had different answers, both DeWine and Zayas agreed that Joe Biden is the president and has won the election.
