I understand that it is bigger than just my paycheck, but it is my paycheck,” Episcopalian Christopher Dwyer, a veteran who works for the Department of Housing and Urban Development, told NBC News’ Lester Holt on Jan. 10.Dwyer, who is a member of Christ Church in Bloomfield and Glen Ridge in New Jersey and a seminarian at Drew Theological School in Madison, New Jersey, told Holt that he soon might have to find other work, saying his unemployment insurance will eventually run out. (While rules vary by state, unemployment benefits generally pay a percentage of the recipient’s salary, and federal workers will reportedly have to repay their benefits if they receive back pay.)From school tuition deferrals to free firewood to anxiety support groups, the responses run the gamut in Washington, D.C., neighborhoods, on Native American reservations and in seaside communities.The reservations are among the hardest hit because of their dependence on federal aid of all sorts. That dependence was enshrined centuries ago in treaties between tribes and the U.S. government in which the tribes gave up huge territories for many guarantees, including money for services like health care and education. The Bureau of Indian Affairs provides those services, either directly or through grants to 567 federally recognized tribes. All told, about 1.9 million American Indian and Alaska Natives are impacted.Rosebud Sioux Tribe Chairman Rodney Bordeaux has said that 74 percent of the tribe’s budget revenue is federal money. Bordeaux and other tribal leaders plan to go to Washington this week to meet with lawmakers.The Rev. Lauren R. Stanley, superintending presbyter of the Rosebud Episcopal Mission (West) in South Dakota and the Rev. John Floberg, priest-in-charge on the North Dakota side of the Standing Rock Episcopal Mission, both told Episcopal News Service that the tribal governments are considering shutting down parts of their operations because they lack federal grant money.Stanley said she is getting calls asking for help with electric bills and for propane. The local electric co-op is working with furloughed federal workers, but other reservation residents are getting desperate, she said. That is where the mission’s Firewood for the Elders program comes in. Stanley said South Dakota temperatures have been “okay”; it was 38 degrees the afternoon of Jan. 14, but snow is forecast for Jan. 18 with an expected high of 17. Stanley said the program is giving out wood not just to older tribal members but to any families affected by the shutdown and to furloughed workers.People are worried about the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, SNAP or EBT as it is known on the Rosebud Reservation. Recipients’ January benefits were available on Jan. 10, and it has been announced that February money will be put in people’s accounts on Jan. 20. Stanley said she worries that some people will not budget out that money to last through the end of February.While the USDA has said its Commodity Supplemental Food Program will make its planned February deliveries, Stanley said a lot of the food isn’t arriving and recipients are getting rain checks to redeem when it does arrive.“The Rosebud Episcopal Mission is committed to helping those most in need,” Stanley told ENS.And, people across the country have been asking her how they can help, offering donations of material goods, money and gifts cards. Stanley is telling people that money and gift cards are best because each family has different needs.The partial government shutdown entered its 24th day on Jan. 14, making it the longest in U.S. history, as Congress and President Donald Trump remain at a loggerheads over his demand for billions of dollars for a wall on the southern border. On this record-setting day, Trump rejected a suggestion that he allow the government to reopen temporarily while negotiations continued about border security.About 800,000 federal employees, more than half of whom are still working, did not get paid on Jan. 11. Congress has sent Trump a bill to give those workers back pay once the shutdown ends. The president has said he would sign it.Such promises, however, do not help furloughed workers’ cash flow now, so Episcopalians are stepping up. For example, St. Patrick’s Episcopal Day School in Washington, D.C., told parents on Jan. 7, the day that school resumed after the Christmas holidays, that parents who are federal employees or contractors and having difficulty paying tuition and fees can defer those payments without late fees. They will have to set up a repayment plan later.Head of School Peter A. Barrett told ENS Jan. 14 that many Episcopal schools are no doubt finding themselves in similar situations, especially in the Washington area.For some federal employees, the needs are more basic. Eleanor Godfrey told a local television news station that the Lord’s Pantry, a ministry of St. James Episcopal Church in New London, Connecticut, is ready to help.“This is probably the best place to come to get food. I certainly hope the people who are involved in this shutdown don’t become prideful because [at] St. James, we’re here for you and we want you to come down here,” said Godfrey, the pantry’s manager.More than 7,000 federal employees work in Connecticut, and the federal government is a major employer in the southeastern part of the state where New London is. Located on the Long Island Sound, New London is home to the Coast Guard Academy. Coast Guard employees are furloughed because they are part of the Department of Homeland Security, one of the departments effected by the partial shutdown.The pantry is getting the word out via social media as well.The Community Soup Kitchen at Christ Church Episcopal in New Haven, Connecticut, is telling furloughed workers they are welcome. “St. Paul tells us in scripture that the laborer deserves to be paid. And we hope that the government will reopen and workers who are working will be paid,” the Rev. Stephen Holton told a local NBC television station. “Everyone deserves a meal, and this is a place where you can receive it. Come and be fed. Come and be fed together,” he said.In Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Jackson Cupboard, a food pantry at St. John’s Episcopal Church, is partnering with Wyoming Food Bank of the Rockies to host a special mobile food pantry on Jan. 15.When 4Saints Episcopal Food Pantry in Fort Worth, Texas, posted the announcement below, it was shared 25 times, an unusual amount for the pantry, leading Director Judy Cariker to think there is a need out there.Meanwhile, in Georgia, the Very Rev. Alexis Chase, vicar of Holy Comforter Episcopal Church in Atlanta, took to Facebook Jan. 14 to offer “furloughed friends” the chance for some comfort.“Furlough Bible Study” is just one of the ways that St. Columba’s Episcopal Church in northwest Washington, D.C., is trying to help. The Bible study, for “those with unexpected time in your day and a desire to gather with fellow sojourners,” begins Jan. 16. On that same day, St. Columba’s Mothers’ Group will host a professionally led conversation with practical advice about how to manage anxiety and its impact.“Some of you have told me that, even though you’ve lived through government shutdowns in the past, this time feels particularly scary,” the Rev. Ledlie Laughlin, St. Columba’s rector, told the congregation on Jan. 9. “Others have told me that you’re scrambling to figure out your finances, calculating the toll on your savings in the absence of a paycheck. This is a time to come together, to take care of one another, and to take care of our neighbors.”Laughlin said prayer ought to be Episcopalians’ first response. St. Columba’s is including all affected by the shutdown in its Sunday and daily prayers.(Province II of the Episcopal Church has offered “A Litany for those affected by the government shutdown” here.)St. Columba’s is also “crowdsourcing and identifying resources” for people who may be facing hardship for the first time and do not know where assistance is available for food or other necessities, he said.And, Laughlin urged parishioners who need financial help to contact him, and he asked those who “have enough to help someone else” to be in touch with him also.The Episcopal Church also is responding with advocacy in Washington. Its Office of Government Relations has called for an end to the shutdown, saying that “shutting down our government is a failure of leadership and recognition of the responsibility that comes with being an elected official.”“The government shutdown has far-reaching implications for our country as it impacts the livelihoods of federal employees and their families; as well as of those relying on federal support for food, housing, medical services, and more; and the vital government services such as airport security, mortgage and student loan processing, and a wide suite of services the federal government is responsible for delivering in Native American communities,” the office said in a Jan. 9 statement.Basing its comments on church policy as set by General Convention, OGR said Congress and the administration need to work together to address legitimate security needs, to ensure the government’s legal responsibility to process asylum seekers and treat all migrants with humanity and respect, and to enact policies that address the root causes and help alleviate the conditions that drive forced migration in Central and South America.– The Rev.

first_imgThursday Mar 18, 2010 Rugby Club Super 14 Plays of the Month – February 2010 We’re well into March so it’s time to take a look back at the best of the previous month’s action in the Super 14 with another great compilation from the guys at the Aussie show, The Rugby Club. Tries, hits, and pom-poms are the order of the day.The tournament started off with some high scoring madness that had the people up north questioning if they were watching rugby or basketball, but things soon regained respectability as it became clear that he interpretations of the law led to a far more open form of the game.As always in the Super 14, theres plenty to talk about. If its not power failures and dancing girls, its the action on field with some cracking hits and incredible tries.A few of the bigger hits have already been featured on here, but the hit of the month was handed to Blues number eight Peter Saili, who rocked Reds winger Digby Ioane.Try of the month was given to the on form Quade Cooper for his finish against the Crusaders after a brilliant build up. Theres already talk about him pushing Matt Giteau for a place in the Wallabies line up. Time, and court hearings, will tell.The celebrations featured will have the old school traditionalists pulling their hair out, condemning this great game as having gone to the dogs. In reality, its just a bit of fun and can only help towards growing the profile of the sport. Rugby needs characters after all.Enjoy this alternative look at the most entertaining bits of action from the Super 14 in February.

Just as its alpine setting has been formed by many forces over time, Villa Courbe is a residence shaped intuitively and alliteratively by many hands – from sun and topography to brief and local zoning regulations. Seen from the water, the house appears almost at one with the wooded hills that rise gently out of the lake and, at the same time, very different to the traditional suburbia that surrounds it. The need to respond to the topography that came before, drives the design to contrast with the neighboring houses that appeared only after the glaciers and ice had done their work.Save this picture!© Adam LetchSave this picture!Ground floor planSave this picture!© Adam LetchEntering the property from the street, the design negotiates the lakeside slope in a series of full width “slices” that contours across the wedge-shaped site. The first of these is a triple-storey light scoop that houses a gallery space and creates a threshold to the more private parts of the house beyond. Responding to a critical requirement of the brief, guests can circulate vertically down to a top-lit basement art space which opens up into an entertainment area. Functionally separated in the “slice” closest to the lake, the principle living rooms are on the Ground Floor – a sequence of dining, kitchen and family rooms are sheltered below an upper storey housing the bedrooms whilst a double-height living room noses towards the lake creating shelter from the cold north wind.Save this picture!© Adam LetchEntry is on a mid-level below a suspended canopy that further parts the slices into two wings and, in doing so, opens up a view across the lake to the mountains beyond. Swooping down between these wings, a sculptural planted roof both echoes a distinctive fold in the distant alpine skyline and responds to prescriptions in the local zoning scheme. As fundamental as the sharp peaks and soft hills that characterize the views from the plot, sunlight, that precious commodity on the 46th parallel, is the other guiding hand which shapes the spaces and sculpts the forms. The site responds to its north-west orientation, and every effort was made to bring south light into the house. Carving the program into parallel “slices” exposes two south elevations. The first of these – at the entrance – is largely closed up with zinc cladding to provide privacy, but high-level clerestory windows scoop art-friendly light deep into the basement gallery.Save this picture!© Adam LetchSave this picture!© Adam LetchThe fissure between the slices creates a generous and private south-facing courtyard in the center of the plan and this, in turn, has a light-well cored out into the basement below. The roof is punctured with strategically placed skylights whilst the impact of the summer sun is moderated by a laser-cut aluminium shading screen that follows the curves of the roof and plan and provides a datum for glazing and window treatment. The pool is also used as a sort of lightbox with a glass wall bouncing light into the basement. The result is a series of luminous spaces characterized by varying types of light – from soft art-friendly illumination that filters down to the basement gallery to the generous daylighting that suffuses the principle living spaces.Save this picture!© Adam LetchSave this picture!North and south elevationsSave this picture!© Adam LetchMaterials were chosen to respond to these bright spaces. Zinc-clad on the outside, the entrance appears robust and opaque; whilst within the deep light scoop, the basement areas are lined with white walls and ceilings. In the main living spaces, rich timber ceilings and natural stone walls combine to add warmth and texture. Black marble shot through with white veins, and limestone layered in horizontal bands, echo snow-clad peaks and sedimentary rocks, whilst front door and gates open up in Bond-like copper-clad clockwork. Concrete is also used in a variety of ways – from heavy board-formed panels in the entrance hall, to the monolithic curve of the pool cabana, to the curtain-like walls of the basement pool and spa which were cast using a proprietary elastic mould system. Triple glazing (some of it curved), solar water heating, geothermal heat pumps and an insulated, planted roof combine unobtrusively to raise the performance of the house to a level suited to its environment.Save this picture!© Adam LetchDesigned by SAOTA and built by a dedicated team including SRA – Kössler & Morel Architects as Architect of Record, Interior Designer Thierry Lemaire, T.

first_imgNurses organizeNational Nurses United reported the nurses at Maine Medical Center successfully voted to unionize. The 2,000 nurses will be represented by Maine State Nurses Association (MSNU) and NNU. Maine Medical Center is the largest health care facility in the state.Meanwhile, St. Vincent nurses in Worcester, Mass., are still on the picket line. The nurses’ strike began March 8 and is presently the longest strike in the country. The top demand of the nurses is safer staffing. The current staffing ratio at St. Vincent is often 1 nurse to 5 patients or (1-5). The patient load is above the NNU recommended staffing ratio and would be deemed unsafe by current best practice standards. For example, a nurse should only be caring for one critical care patient (1-1), while a nurse can be assigned multiple patients who are less acutely ill. Representatives from both sides were at the bargaining table on March 5, and the union reports they are examining a proposal from hospital administration that includes a concession on staffing ratios. The American Nurses Association (ANA) states: “Inadequate nurse staffing levels by experienced RNs are linked to higher rates of patient falls, infections, medication errors and even death.” (nurse.org, Nov. 1, 2017) It also causes an ethical dilemma and moral distress on the part of the nurse. Nursing shortages result as RNs opt out of direct patient care jobs rather than risk harming a patient.The Safe Staffing for Quality Care Act would mandate safe nurse-to-patient staffing ratios, but so far only California has passed legislation. The bill was introduced in the New York State legislature and is moving through various committees before it can be brought to the full body for a vote.Students strikeNew York University graduate students are on strike. United Automobile Workers Local 2110 represents more than 1,000 grad student workers at NYU. Their main demand is a wage increase but, in response to police violence against Black and Brown people, the students are calling on the university to limit police presence on campus. (tinyurl.com/yh6oml7b) Graduate students won their first higher education union contract in 1970 at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.The Kenyon Student Worker Organizing Committee (K-SWOC) continues their battle with Kenyon College in Gambier, Ohio, to allow undergraduate student workers to vote for a union. Two months ago, the K-SWOC staged the first undergraduate student-worker strike in the country. The student group called another strike in late April, when the college refused to recognize the student-workers’ union. (tinyurl.com/yzm94x2l)So far 165 student-workers have signed a commitment to the current strike. The group rallied on campus in early May to gain more college community support. At one point, the group occupied the college president’s office but left of their own accord after about one hour. College administration called campus security, who proceeded to harass and threaten the students as they marched through campus. In response to the harassment, K-SWOC has filed an Unfair Labor Practice charge (ULP) with the NLRB, accusing the college of violating the National Labor Relations Act provision that guarantees workers the right to self-organization and to form, join or assist labor organizations. K-SWOC also filed an unpaid wages complaint with the Ohio Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Wage and Hour Administration because the college is withholding overtime pay.Coal miners rallyThe United Mine Workers (UMWA) hosted a Unity Rally for the 1,100 coal miners striking at Warrior Met Coal in Brookwood, Alabama. The strike began on April 1 after the workers’ contracts expired, and negotiations for a new contract failed. UMWA President Cecil Roberts urged striking workers to stand firm and pledged over $1 million from union funds to support them. (tinyurl.com/yz6r5g6u)Roberts reflected on the April 28 Workers Memorial Day: “Today, before you get home tonight and put your head on your pillow, another worker somewhere in this country will be killed on the job. Fourteen workers every single day in the United States, but that’s not all. I want you to listen to this number every year; somewhere between 50,000 and 60,000 workers die from occupational illnesses like black lung, brown lung, white lung, cancer. They’re dying because they went to work . . . (Warrior Met Coal) is a dangerous company to work for.” The Brookwood, Ala., mine was the site of the 2001 tragedy when methane explosions killed 13 miners. Survivors of the explosions blamed dangerous conditions that the mine owner and the Mine Safety and Health Administration covered up. (tinyurl.com/yhomjr5q)At the rally, Alabama AFL-CIO President Bren Riley chastised Warrior Met Coal for recently paying out bonuses to the bosses, while miners accepted pay cuts in 2016 to keep the company afloat. He also denounced the company for bringing in strikebreakers during the strike. The strikebreakers appear to be responsible for recent complaints filed with the Alabama Department of Environmental Management. Two Tuscaloosa streams have been contaminated with thick wastewater runoff, since the strike began. (tinyurl.com/yffjog2h)Nelson Brooke works for the Waterkeeper Alliance. He is the riverkeeper for the Black Warrior River, which both creeks flow into. After investigating, he is sure he knows where the pollution is coming from: “It’s 100% coming from Warrior Met Coal’s number seven underground mine,” where the mining waste slurry is pumped to the surface, contaminating the waterways. UMWA Communications Director, Phil Smith has commented that such environmental catastrophes caused by poor work practices “don’t happen so much when the UMWA workforce is in these mines.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

The allegations elicited a strenuous denial from the minister and a complaint against Jajili.Jajili was summoned and questioned by the police for five hours on 23 October. When the police summoned him a second time on 14 December, they gave him a summons to appear in court on 14 January. He is now facing a possible sentence of three months to a year in prison and a fine of 1,200 to 100,000 dirhams (110 to 9,000 euros).“More than 18 months after the adoption of a new constitution guaranteeing a number of fundamental rights, including the right to a fair trial, Morocco urgently needs to bring its laws into line with the constitution’s provisions,” Reporters Without Borders said.“This case also highlights the degree to which freedom of information in Morocco needs the media law reform promised by the new government, which would decriminalize press offences.”In a statement posted on his Facebook page on 26 June 2012, the minister announced his intention to prosecute “any person directly or indirectly involved in this action, which attacks my honour and dignity, and the honour of my position, my family and my party.”Jajili’s lawyer, Ibrahim Rachidi, told Reporters Without Borders he intended to dispute the bases of the charges against Jajili. “He cannot in any way be concerned by article 42 of the press law, which concerns the publication of information that jeopardizes public order and causes panic,” Rachidi said. “We also object to the fact that he was summoned and interrogated by the judicial police. He should have been questioned by a court. It is important that Morocco’s laws conform to the new constitution, article 120 of which says that every citizen has the right to a fair trial.”A weekly founded by Jajili in April of last year, Al-Aan specializes in investigative reporting. In 2011, Jajili won Morocco’s national press prize for a report from the Sahrawi refugee camps in Tindouf, in southwestern Algeria.

first_img Reporters Without Borders expressed concern after death threats were made against two cartoonists – whose names are being withheld for security reasons – after 12 cartoons of the prophet Mohammad appeared in the conservative daily Jyllands-Posten in Copenhagen. “It is unbelievable that one can make death threats against cartoonists in Denmark, one of the countries in the world that shows most respect for press freedom,” said the worldwide press freedom organisation.One of the 12 cartoons, published on 30 September 2005, in Denmark’s top-selling daily, with a circulation of 200,000, shows the head of Mohammed wearing a turban in the form of a bomb, the fuse of which is lit. All representation of the Prophet is banned by Islam.Jyllands-Posten published the series of cartoons to find out if cartoonists in Denmark were operating self-censorship. It made an appeal to cartoonists after a writer complained that nobody dared illustrate his book about the Prophet Mohammad. Twelve of them responded.The newspaper’s editor, Carsten Juste, decided on 12 October to hire security staff to protect the journalists working for him after receiving several phone and emailed death threats following publication of “Faces of Mohammed”. The two cartoonists against whom the threats were made have been forced into hiding.”It is shocking that they have been forced to hide for having published cartoons that caused offence,” the worldwide press freedom organisation said. “No form of pressure or obstacle should force journalists into self-censorship, whatever subjects they choose.””We call on the interior Minister to open an investigation so that whoever is responsible for these threats can be punished as quickly as possible.” A 17-year-old youth who was carrying a knife was arrested in connection with the case on 15 October in Aarhus, western Denmark.Muslim religious leaders in Denmark, who see the cartoons as an insult to Islam and to his prophet on 6 October called on the conservative daily to withdraw the cartoons and to make an official apology. Some 5,000 Muslims demonstrated in the streets of Copenhagen on 14 October, saying the cartoons were “provocative” and “arrogant”.”We live in a democracy in which satire and caricature are generally accepted and religion should not try to put any limits on that,” said Juste.

first_img Twitter Facebook PERRYMAN: Texas economic forecast shows state still on top Ray Perryman is the head of The Perryman Group and serves as a distinguished professor at the International Institute for Advanced Studies. The Texas economy has been growing at a relatively healthy pace and the Lone Star State is widely recognized as a good place to live and do business. Our most recent projections indicate that the state economy is set to continue its upward trend.Recovery in the energy sector is improving conditions not only in producing areas, but also in other parts of the state. According to data maintained by Baker Hughes, rig counts in Texas have been averaging almost 500, about 100 more than a year ago and well above the March 2016 level of 217. This level of drilling activity not only supports strong hiring in the industry (up an estimated 28,300 over the year ended February 2018), but also additional jobs across the economy. The oil and gas sector in Texas has one of the highest regional jobs multipliers in the country.Manufacturing and other industries are also expanding. Texas again won Site Selection Magazine’s 2017 Governor’s Cup competition as the state with the most large projects (capital investment of at least $1 million, 20 or more new jobs, or 20,000 square feet of new construction). The win continued a long string of top finishes, and the state was well above the second-place finisher (Ohio). Rankings of places to do business regularly place Texas and its metropolitan areas near the top, and the states’ favorable business climate, strong workforce, lower cost environment, competitive incentive programs and other attributes are keeping the locations and expansions coming.Looking ahead, growth in the Texas economy is projected to outpace the nation during the next five years. Our most recent short-term forecast for the U.S. economy indicates relatively healthy growth. Real gross product is projected to increase at a 2.89 percent annual pace through 2022, reaching a level of $19.3 trillion. About 11.7 million net new jobs are also expected to be gained over the period, a 1.55 percent annual rate of growth.For the state, the expansion pace will be even faster. We are forecasting that the Texas population will grow by about 2.1 million between 2017 and 2022, reaching 30.5 million. Almost 1.4 million net new jobs are projected to be added, representing a 2.05 percent annual rate of growth over the five-year period. Services industries will drive job gains, with net new jobs concentrated in health care. Wholesale and retail trade businesses are also likely to see notable hiring.Real gross product in all major industry groups is projected to expand through 2022, with the services, mining, trade and manufacturing segments likely to experience the largest growth. Real gross product is forecast to expand at a 4.01 percent rate over the period, with the mining sector (largely oil and natural gas in Texas) leading the way with 6.15 percent yearly growth expected over the next five years.The strength of the Texas economy will help with short-term issues such as the recovery process from Hurricane Harvey as well as with long-term challenges such as preparing for the needs of the future. While much of the economy is back to normal after the effects of the Hurricane, the recovery is far from complete in some communities. Over time, the short-term stimulus associated with construction to replace damaged structures will give way to some dampening of longer-term growth for some industries and geographic areas. Strength in other segments will mask these negative effects, but for some of the hardest-hit communities (such as Port Aransas), it will be a long road back.The Texas economy has the raw materials needed for economic growth, including a large and growing population and workforce, natural resources, affordable land and many more attributes that companies need for success. In addition, purposeful efforts to develop the economy in desirable ways have contributed to growth and will continue to do so. There are always challenges to be dealt with, such as current trade and immigration threats and the long-term need to improve infrastructure and educational outcomes. On balance, however, I think Texas will remain a top state for businesses and, therefore, individual opportunity and prosperity for decades to come.

The Executive Committee of the SCBA had passed a resolution on May 8, suspending Arora from the post of secretary with immediate effect in a meeting held through an online conference. Adv Arun Batta, appearing for Ashok Arora, stated that his removal was vindictive as he has refused to be a mere “rubber stamp” for the body. Arora argued before the High Court that, “There is no rule for suspension of elected members. Rule 35 is the only rule that can be invoked and it applies to any member of SCBA,” and that the SCBA did not follow the requisite procedure in suspending him – having first suspended him and then issuing him a show-cause notice. He further stated that the interested parties themselves became the jurors of his suspension from the SCBA – with all 7 members of the committee also being members of the Executive Committee, thereby being a judge of their own case. Pointing out violations of “principles of natural justice,” he said that the Vice President had participated in the committee proceedings against him when even though he had raised allegations against him as well. Raising allegations against the SCBA President Dushyant Dave, Arora stated that, “Even though Dushyant Dave didn’t participate, he constituted the committee that suspended me from SCBA.” He further went on to allege that, “(A) majority of the SCBA members (had) sold their soul and simply toed the line of President Dushyant Dave.” Appearing on behalf of the Bar Council of India (which had, in what Arora called a “historic move” stated that Arora’s suspension from the post of Secretary was vindictive), Adv Preet Pal Singh stated that till date the BCI has never interfered in such matters however this situation was unprecedented and called for an intervention. What was asked from Your Lordship was what is the solution to all this? BCI also never interfered in all this because this was a decision to be taken by the General Body. Referring to a judgment by the Supreme Court which states that Bar Association is also nothing but a body of advocates, he submitted that the Supreme Court itself had observed that all Bar Associations are also controlled by the BCI, because in the absence of this control, Bar Associations could take any action contrary to BCI’s decisions. Appearing for the Supreme Court Bar Association, Adv Arvind Nigam, on the other hand submitted that, suspension from the primary membership of the Association and suspension as an elected representative are two different things and that Rule 35 of the Supreme Court Bar Association Rules does not apply to the case at hand, as the show cause notice issued to Arora was not for expulsion from the membership of the Association. Stating that Rule 14(2) was the source of residuary power, he added that earlier too action has been initiated against the elected representatives of the Association. He further went on to state that prior to approaching the High Court, Arora had also approached the Supreme Court. However, when it was brought to the notice of this court that a case was already pending the Supreme Court he stated that an application for withdrawal had already been filed regarding the same. With respect to this, Adv Nigam stated that while the Supreme Court order noted that the case was being withdrawn as Arora was going to approach the High Court, this was at variance with his stance in the withdrawal application which stated that he wanted to approach the Committee of Justice Ramamurthy, Justice Sodhi and Justice Marlapalley, which was constituted on 8th June. Adv Nigam argued that the written pleading of the withdrawal application constituted a subsuming of the cause of action, and that this was a case of abandonment of the cause of action. At this, Justice Endlaw questioned as to who had constituted this Committee, in response to which Adv Batta, appearing for Arora intervened and said that this Committee had been constituted not by the Executive Committee but by the President himself. Adv Nigam for SCBA also submitted that none of the people whom Arora had alleged mala fide against had been made parties to the plaint. Arora briefly replied to the arguments of the SCBA, stating that, he was “not claiming any personal right,” but was fighting “for the wrong to the SCBA” and that Rule 14 of the SCBA Rules could not be used to demolish the basic rule of democracy. He submitted that, he was pleading on principles of natural justice, as in his case the very people who were the complainant had also become the judge – and that the BCI had also noted that this had been happening almost every year. Adv Arvind Nigam responded to this stating that, “It’s not as if any provision of the Act gives any power to the BCI of supervision of the Associations.”Subscribe to LiveLaw, enjoy Ad free version and other unlimited features, just INR 599 Click here to Subscribe.
