    Social Media, Government, and the First Amendment

    Social Media, Government, and the First Amendment

    Nov 1, 2019

    Our government clients use social media in a myriad of ways. Elected officials communicate with constituents. Police, fire, and other departments engage with their community to provide updates on key government events, crises, and for their recruitment and hiring of new employees. Employees use social media in ways that blur the lines between off-duty and on-duty activities. This collision of agendas and views often results in claims and liability under the First Amendment. This webinar provides a primer on how courts are applying the First Amendment to social media activities of elected officials and employment.

This webinar will describe how traffic signals operate, how they are programmed, and how a forensic analysis of their operation can determine which party had the right-of-way during an accident.

    Medicare Endgame – Applying Predictive Settlement Strategies to Mitigate MSP Exposure

    Medicare Endgame – Applying Predictive Settlement Strategies to Mitigate MSP Exposure

    Dec 5, 2019

    Of the many solutions that may exist in the Medicare Secondary Payer (MSP) compliance universe, very few offer the certainty and predictability parties crave. Very few allow the insurance carrier/self-insured to calculate its MSP exposure with absolute certainty. Very few allow the Medicare beneficiary to calculate a potential net award with absolute certainty. Very few allow the file of each respective side to stay closed permanently. John V. Cattie, Jr. and Bruce A. Cranner, expert legal scholars, will walk attendees through the process of using an arbitration (as opposed to mediation) to obtain a judicial allocation on the merits which can be used to address MSP reimbursement obligations, as well as how to protect Medicare’s interests when closing the file through adjudication on the merits before the Board/Industrial Commission.
