The Courtroom is my Theater (03/24/2020)

Program Number: 3059 Presenter: Jay Goldberg, Esq., Alex Huot, Esq.

Trial Lawyers Need to Understand the Doctrine of Constructive Amendment of an Indictment and How the Failure to Do so May Result in the Conviction of Violation of a Defendants Fifth Amendment Rights. The Fifth Amendment guarantees defendant the right to be tried for only those offenses presented in the indictment returned by a grand jury. One must be careful to recognize when the evidence presented at trial proves a crime different from any one charged in the indictment. Do the jury instructions broaden the scope of the indictment by permitting conviction for an uncharged offense? Jury instructions may cure an allegedly amended indictment by limiting the charges on which the defendant may be convicted. A variance occurs when the evidence at trial proves facts other than those alleged in the indictment. How does one distinguish an amendment from a variance? Fifth Amendment rights are at issue.

Effective Mediation Part 3 - Overcoming Unrecognized Emotions in Mediating Commercial Disputes (06/01/2020)

Program Number: 3021 Presenter: Leslie Berkoff, Esq., Elizabeth Shampnoi

Emotions are not relegated to personally identifiable disputes, such as employment, personal injury or matrimonial. Oftentimes, the parties to a commercial dispute are harboring unrecognized emotions arising from the dynamics of the events leading up to the dispute, the interactions between the parties as well as the impact of the subject matter of the dispute at hand. Failing to identify and recognize these emotions impedes the ability of the parties to address them in a way that allows the parties to focus on the overarching business dispute. By recognizing and addressing emotions, the parties can move towards a more level playing field of negotiation and adequately address the dispute between them. As long as these emotions remain unnamed and unmanaged, getting to "yes" or some form of resolution may be impossible. This program will explore the means to identify and recognize emotions in commercial disputes, and provide tools to foster

False Claims Act Litigation (06/22/2020)

Program Number: 30170 Presenter: Reuben A. Guttman, Esq., Adam S. Hoffinger, Esq.

Over the last several years Americans have had a crash course in the role that whistleblowers play in compliance enforcement. No statute gives whistleblowers a greater role than federal and state false claims acts. These statutes not only allow the government to bring suit to address fraud on the government, but they allow private citizens to step into the shoes of the government to bring suit. Now, particularly in a Covid19 era - with trillions of taxpayer dollars poured into the economy - the false claims acts are taking on even greater importance. This seminar will cover: • what you need to know about these laws • who can bring suit? • what bounty provisions exist? • what are the cases that will arise in the Covid19 era? • what are the pleading and evidentiary issues you need to know? Reuben Guttman of Guttman, Buschner & Brooks, PLLC is a leading whistleblower lawyer and coauthor of
