October 8, 1945

The wife filed a bill seeking to set aside and vacate the divorce decree entered on the ground of her adultery. The wife alleged that she had not contested the divorce suit because the husband led her to believe that the suit would be withdrawn and also alleged that she had sexual intercourse with the husband during the pendency of the suit. The trial court entered a decree setting aside and vacating the divorce decree and also awarding support and maintenance for the wife and child. Respondent husband sought review of a decree from the Law and Equity Court of the City of Richmond (Virginia), which set aside and vacated the decree of divorce, declared that complainant wife was the husband’s lawful wife, and declared that the child was the legitimate offspring of that union. The wife cross-appealed as to the amount of the trial court’s award for support and maintenance.

Issue:

Whether, in obtaining his decree for divorce, the husband perpetrated a fraud upon the court and upon his wife?

Discussion:

This court found that the husband had led the wife into a position of false security and concealed their true relations from the trial court and the court affirmed the trial court’s decree. This court held that before Tarr was free to contract a second marriage, he, due to his breach of the moral code, was confronted by the demands of two women, each of whom, to his knowledge, was with

child

by him. As soon as the legal restrictions were removed, he elected to marry the second woman. This change in his status was occasioned by his own acts and by his own incontinence. It was not caused by the delay in bringing this suit. This court determined that the wife had an absolute defense to the divorce proceedings. This court found that the wife had reasonable grounds to believe that it was unnecessary for her to appear and make defense. This court rejected the husband’s claim that the wife was guilty of laches in bringing the suit. This court found that the husband’s second wife and child were not necessary parties. This court also found no reversible error with respect to the support and maintenance award.

Conclusion:

This court hence affirmed the trial court’s decree, which set aside and vacated the decree of divorce, declared that the wife was the husband’s lawful wife, declared that the child was the legitimate offspring of that union, and awarded support and maintenance. This court amended the trial court’s decree to include the additional compensation allowed the wife’s counsel. This court remanded the case for such further proceedings as were authorized by law.

The law firm is quoted as saying that they “…have reason to believe that the Book may contain serious, untrue and damaging defamatory allegations about our client…” It makes one wonder how they can be so certain about the contents of an unpublished book. But, maybe Mr. Client was sent an advance copy so he could write up a nice blurb for the dust jacket. —Eodril (talk) 10:33, 6 October 2008 (UTC)

The trial of a former Texas justice of the peace, accused of killing three people in Kaufman County in early 2013, entered its third day this morning. The defendant, Eric Williams, is being tried for one of the three murders, specifically involving the death of Cynthia McClelland.

Media reports indicate the prosecution in the case intends to rest its case today. Prosecutors allege that McLelland was fatally shot by Williams inside her home Easter weekend of 2013. During opening remarks on Monday, the prosecutor stated Williams killed McClelland in a “blizzard” of bullets. She was the spouse of public prosecutor Mike McClelland whom police allege Williams also shot and killed during the same home invasion.

A separate prosecutor, Mark Hasse, was also allegedly killed by Williams in a separate incident. Early on the trial’s first day, a reporter for the Dallas Morning News posted on Twitter that Williams looked, “…like the attorney he once was.” The cases garnered much attention, as initially, authorities considered a wide variety of theories. However, upon further inquiry, their attention ultimately turned to Williams. Police allege Williams and his wife carefully planned the murders as revenge for the prosecutors’ official actions in an earlier case against Eric Williams. Prosecutors have chosen at this time, to only bring the case of Cynthia McClelland’s murder to trial.

Williams’ wife, Kim, also faces capital murder indictments pertaining to the murders. Her trial date has not yet been set.

After McLelland’s and her husband’s deaths, many public figures in the county began attending community meetings with bodyguards over fears of other possible murder attempts. Other public officials in parts of Texas expressed fear during the time when the murders were happening.

Seventeen people have been arrested overnight in Sydney and Melbourne, in what Police have described as ‘anti-terror’ raids. New South Wales (NSW) and Victorian police conducted the raids, and both police chiefs have said that the action foiled a terrorist plot. New South Wales Police Commissioner Ken Moroney said that, “we have disrupted what I would regard as the final stages of a terrorist attack or the launch of a terrorist attack in Australia.” The Guardian is reporting that some of those arrested in Sydney are alleged to have been stockpiling chemicals.

Some of those arrested in Melbourne have appeared in court, including Abu Bakr, also known as Abdul Nacer Benbrika. Benbrika was criticised last year for comments he made in support of al-Qaeda.

In NSW, warrants were executed in Lakemba, Belmore, Wiley Park, Greenacre, Illawong, Punchbowl, Hoxton Park, Condell Park, Ingleburn, Belfield, Bankstown and Kemps Creek, resulting in 8 arrests.

A NSW Police spokesman has said that one of the men arrested was shot in the chest by police in Green Valley at about 9am, after firing at police. “One officer was struck, we believe in the hand, and suffered a minor wound,” the spokesman said. “One of the police officers returned fire and the person of interest to police was wounded in the neck.”

It has been reported that the arrests in Sydney, unlike those in Melbourne, do include charges relating to planning and preparation of violent acts. The suspects have not yet appeared in court and the case has been adjourned to Friday.

Mick Keelty, Commissioner of the Australian Federal Police (AFP), has said that the seven people arrested in New South Wales will be charged under the anti-terrorism legislation that was rushed through parliament last week. Mr Keelty has said that the details of the allegations against the men should be kept secret.

“An application will be made by the Commonwealth Director of Public Prosecution this afternoon to suppress the details of the allegations,” he said.

Keelty justified the action by arguing that “we give these people a fair opportunity to prepare their defence before the court rather than run the trial in the media.”

In Victoria, warrants were executed in Dallas, Hoppers Crossing, Fawkner, Preston, Haberfield, Coburg, Yarraville, Meadow Heights, Hadfield and Mount Druit, resulting in 9 arrests.

Victorian Police Commissioner Christine Nixon also believes that the raids prevented a terrorist attack, however she stated that the police did not know what form the attack would take, saying “we weren’t exactly sure when nor, more importantly, what they planned to damage or do harm to.” Commissioner Nixon said that they had sufficient evidence to proceed.

Nixon said that the raids were the result of a long-term operation. When queried, she confirmed that the anti-terror legislation rushed through Parliament last week was related to today’s raids. “Some of that is related to that amendment that occurred,” she said. The changes became law just two days ago.

Those arrested will be charged with “a range of offences”, however the exact nature of the charges is yet to be announced. It is not yet clear to what extent the emergency legislative changes rushed through parliament last week are a legal basis for the arrests.

One of those arrested in Melbourne was Abu Bakr, also known as Abdul Nacer Benbrika. He is a dual Algerian and Australian citizen, and was criticised last August when he told ABC Radio that he supported al-Quaeda. At the time he denied being involved in any terrorist activity.

In an interview on the ABC Radio “National Breakfast” program, Rob Stary, a criminal defence lawyer who will be representing those arrested in the Melbourne raids said that, as far as he is aware, the charges all relate to being a member of a proscribed organisation, and none of the Melbourne suspsects had been charged in relation to any planning or preparation offences. At the time of the interview he was not aware which proscribed organisation the charges relate to.

Seven men have appeared in the Melbourne Magistrates Court, on charges of intentionally being a member of a terrorist organisation and knowing the organisation was a terrorist organisation. The court has heard that Abu Bakr is the “spiritual leader” of the group and the prosecutor alleged that the organisation is directed by Abu Bakr. Speaking of the Melbourne arrests, Prosecutor Richard Maidment QC alleged that the group constituted a “terrorist organisation”. Making reference to the Sydney arrests he said that the Sydney suspects had “gathering chemicals of a kind that were used in the London Underground bombings,” and planned to kill “innocent men and women in Australia.”

The Basics about Retirement Communities

by

Cara Larose

Retirement community is the general term for a series of housing specially designed for seniors and retirees who no longer work or may need some assistance in their everyday activities. Most retirement communities are planned and designed to have facilities and amenities for the occupants. These are generally built in warm climates, they re also found in any major cities in the US.

There are three main types of retirement communities assisted living, independent living, and continuing care. Elders who need assistance with meals, bathing, medications, and other everyday tasks can stay in assisted living communities. These communities offer accommodations for the elders. Seniors who are willing and able to take care of themselves are best suited to independent living communities. These communities offer planned social activities and basic services that the seniors can enjoy.

Continuing care retirement communities offer healthcare services in addition to basic daily services for the seniors. Retirees stay in apartments, receive meals and skilled nursing assistance. Other services include mobility assistance, staff care, and extensive transportation program. Some of these communities also have adequate amenities like tennis courts, swimming pools, and free wireless internet access.

A naturally-occurring retirement community (NORC) is not necessarily for seniors, although most residents are above 60 years old. These commonly involve low-income residents who receive a richer mix of public services. NORCs provide a variety of support services and cultural enrichment activities for people who need government assistance. These naturally-occurring

pittsburgh retirement communities

also provide support and resources for those who don t want to leave their current neighborhoods.

Applying for these

pennsylvania retirement communities

is easier nowadays with the help of the Internet. A lot of these maintain their own websites where people can browse their available services and amenities. They provide general information about their communities that people might need. They also publish testimonials from residents which may give you closer look into a specific community.

While the population of people above 60 years old increases, these

pittsburgh retirement communities

are also there to support them. It is the younger generations responsibility to care of these elders and to ensure that they are taken care of properly. These retirement communities can help them in making that happen.

A report published today by the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) finds that, in many cases, England’s home care system breaches the human rights of the elderly it is supposed to serve. The Close to home: older people and human rights in home care report is the result of a twelve-month investigation into care generally provided by local authorities.

Approximately half of those receiving home care, plus friends and family, providing evidence to the inquiry were satisfied with the quality of care provided. However, the report stresses that there are “systemic problems” arising from “a failure to apply a human rights approach to home care provision”. The report asserts that it is generally not the fault of individuals providing care, but serious problems exist as local authorities seem unaware of their obligations under the Human Rights Act and fail to commission, procure, and monitor care accordingly.

The report says articles two, three and eight of the European Convention on Human Rights are frequently being breached. These, respectively, cover an individual’s right to life, protection from inhumane and degrading treatment, and respect for dignity and personal independence. Criticisms include that care is not provided in a common-sense manner, and funding of care for the elderly is at lower levels than for younger people with similar problems and needs.

The EHRC’s investigation highlights a range of recurring complaints and attempts to identify the underlying causes; cost is repeatedly mentioned, with use of the private-sector leading to some local authorities offering a “one size fits all” service leaving many elderly feeling they are “a task to be undertaken” and have “little or no choice” as to help received, or when care workers visit. A failure to invest in care workers is noted, with significant responsibility and the wide range of skills required being rewarded with low pay and status; this, the report states, adversely impacts staff retention and, a high turnover of care workers can put the security of care recipients at-risk.

Within the wider investigation, a commissioned independent social report by The Arndale Centre conducted in-depth interviews with a cross-section of 40 elderly individuals receiving home care. As-stressed in the report, those selected were not on the basis of good, or bad, experiences with their – mainly local authority-provided – care. It highlights a widespread feeling amongst those interviewed that they are treated “like a number”, and that aspects of the care provided lead to, or fail to resolve, feelings of social isolation.

The Manchester-based Arndale Centre report concludes that, “[t]he general picture is of a wider home care system in which older people are not effectively involved: which they do not understand, and which does not often make the extra effort required to involve them in ways tailored to their state of health and other needs”.

A recurring theme in the responses of those interviewed is the social isolation that their home care is not adequately addressing. One male interviewee in his seventies who previously used a scooter to get about said in his interview, “I haven’t been out of the house now for about four weeks. I daren’t. The last time I went out on the scooter I hit the kerb and it frightened the living daylights out of me.” Another, an 85-year-old woman who lives alone, expressed sadness at her inability to do normal things, “I would love to go to town to do some shopping. I haven’t been to town for about two years… Wander round the town and have a cup of tea… I’d love that.”

The social isolation many elderly experience was summed up neatly by another woman in her eighties in her interview: “When you go now, I will maybe not talk to anybody till tomorrow; maybe the whole of tomorrow nobody to talk [to]… face to face. Nobody will knock on that door, that is it, a life of isolation.”

The EHRC, having commissioned this report in the face of funding changes and reform of the care system, intends to press for legislative changes to ensure those receiving care at home are given the same protections under the Human Rights Act as those in residential care. In the conclusions of their report they offer to work with, and support, local authorities in understanding and delivering care that respects peoples’ rights and dignity; and, recommend better guidance as to the choices available to the elderly, and their families, be made available.

According to outgoing Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, an explosion that was “equivalent to a 2,000 lb. bomb” and registered 0.5 on the Richter scale decimated an area of Danvers and is also a “Thanksgiving miracle.”

The explosion occurred around 2:45 am EST, this morning in the Danversport area of Danvers, Massachusetts at the plant for solvent and ink manufacturer, CAI Inc. The explosion, which was caught on security camera and was heard up to over 25-50 miles away in southern Maine and New Hampshire.

The explosion damaged over 90 homes, blowing out windows and knocking some houses off their foundations. Officials believe that some of the more extensively damaged houses will have to be leveled and rebuilt. Some of the buildings damaged included a bakery, boats at a close by marina and the New England Home for the Deaf, an assisted-living facility for people who are deaf or deafblind and elderly residents requiring constant care. “These people are extremely fragile,” said state Rep. Ted Speliotis, D-Danvers, whose district includes the affected area. “Many of them have Alzheimer’s and other illnesses. It’s clear they can’t stay here long, but it’s clear they won’t be able to return for quite a while.”

Danvers Fire Chief James P. Tutko toured the area by helicopter and said many residents would be kept from their homes for the foreseeable future. “It looks like a war zone, that’s the only thing I can say,” Tutko said. When asked about the loss of no life at all, he responded “Somebody out there likes us.” Finally, he said that finding out the cause of the explosion would take days.

Outgoing governor Mitt Romney toured the area and said the explosion was a “Thanksgiving miracle” as the explosion was “equivalent to a 2,000 lb bomb going off in a residential neighborhood,” and that no one was killed and only about 10 people suffered only minor injuries in area that included over 300 residents. Residents of the area have been evacuated to the Danvers High School where temporary shelter has been set up by the American Red Cross of Massachusetts Bay. Donations are being taken for residents affected by the explosion. Residents are also being told to start filing insurance claims right away and to keep track of their expenses for items bought.

There were minor environmental concerns due to water runoff of chemicals. According the Environmental Protection Agency’s on-scene coordinator Mike Nalipinski, preliminary tests showed low levels of toluene, a solvent, but said it was nothing of significance. Water runoff from the water used by firefighters left a purple sheen on the river and tests were being conducted. However, the water is not a local drinking water supply and the chemical evaporates quickly. Chief Tutko said there was no risk of toxic fumes getting into the air.

An Eastern Propane facility was also located near the area, however, it was not the source of the explosion. A spokesman for the company said that although the property suffered some minor damage, their tanks are secure.

According to WHDH television, a person who answered the telephone at CAI’s Georgetown, Massachusetts headquarters refused comment, and a telephone message left at the company president’s home was not immediately returned.

In Sint-Niklaas, Belgium, a multicultural mass marriage event is to take place next Wednesday, on the U.N.-designated International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. More than 550 couples have already registered to make a devotion pledge or renew their wedding vows before municipal officer Wouter Van Bellingen. The alderman called for the event after three couples cancelled their marriage because Wouter is black.

Van Bellingen, whose Rwandan parents gave him up for adoption, grew up in Sint-Niklaas as the youngest child in a family of 4 adopted children. Van Bellingen is a member of the political party Spirit, which strives for more Flemish autonomy in Belgium. After the 2006 municipal elections in Belgium, he became the first black councillor in Belgium, responsible for civilian, youth and international affairs in Sint-Niklaas. “The combination of his black skin colour with the shiny white brides dresses will be very photogenic…” mayor Freddy Willockx predicted when he presented his councillors. One month after Van Bellingen took office, the media reported that three couples refused to be married by a black registrar.

At first, Van Bellingen wasn’t very surprised. “As a coloured person, I go through this every day. That’s just the reality in Flanders. Only, I didn’t expect this to happen so fast.” After the incident, Van Bellingen got hundreds of calls and letter from people supporting him, including prime minister Guy Verhofstadt, who condemned “such as stupid form of racism”.

Socialist mayor Willockx accused the far-right political party Vlaams Belang (Eng. Flemish Interest) of creating the atmosphere for his deputy’s experience. Vlaams Belang is second in the polls for the elections next June in Flanders. But, as Van Bellingen pointed out: “This is not just a problem in Sint-Niklaas, or in Flanders, but all over Europe. And there are racists in every political party here.”

Since Van Bellingen made the news, the number of wedding ceremonies he has to lead has doubled, and even bookings for 2008 are coming in. Because many people regretted the fact that they could not be married by the famous alderman, he decided to organise a mass wedding, on the International anti-racism day. Not only future and established couples can take part in the ceremony, but even teens who want to prove their love. “Anyone can wed that day. I’m not a racist.”

Similar to the television show Fata Morgana, Wouter has 5 challenges for the couples and for the city of Sint-Niklaas: together, they are to realise the biggest wedding pledge, a big wedding photo, a big group hug on the market square, a multicultural dessert buffet and a big first wedding dance.
