On May 1, Mosby held a dramatic news conference to announce criminal charges in the case that set off a week of anger and unrest in the city. The driver of the van that transported Gray, Officer Caesar R. Goodson Jr., was charged with second-degree murder, manslaughter, assault and misconduct in office; Lt. Brian W. Rice was charged with manslaughter, assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment; Officer William G. Porter and Sgt. Alicia D. White were charged with manslaughter, assault and misconduct in office; and Officers Edward M. Nero and Garrett E. Miller were charged with assault, misconduct in office and false imprisonment.
It is often the case that someone with a common surname also has a common given name, which can be frustrating. If your ancestor has both a common first and last name, search for someone in his or her family (a sibling, child, cousin, etc.) who had a first name that stands out or is a bit different. A unique name does not have to be wildly different but could just be a name that is not common in that area. For example, perhaps the town where your family lived had a number of Tom Joneses but only one or two Peter Joneses. Identifying a unique name may help you determine, when looking at records, whether you are looking at your family or another.
When it’s not so convenient to fix a plate—like, say, we’re visiting friends or relatives or some such—I’ll ask my husband, “Hey, you want me to fix your plate?” Yes, he’s a grown man who can do it himself, but sometimes he likes his ego stroked—and yeah, when I do it in these circumstances, that’s exactly what fixing his plate is about: his ego.

If you’re in any kind of business, you’re also in the contract business — negotiating, writing, signing, and enforcing. In many ways, the contracts we sign end up running our businesses.
We just have to be sure they don’t end up ruining our businesses. We want clear and concise terms that will be enforceable, if necessary. But just because a clause is in a signed contract doesn’t mean a court will enforce it. Let’s take a look at a few common contract provisions, and whether they’re enforceable:
In April, Freddie Gray was arrested in West Baltimore for possessing a switchblade knife.
While most of the discourse surrounding this case has focused on police brutality, another important issue has arisen from the case: Knife laws. Baltimore prosecutor Marilyn Mosby claims that, under Maryland law, Gray’s knife was not illegal. Alternatively, the arresting officers argue that the knife was illegal under Baltimore’s ordinance.
With the different knife laws among cities and states, could they both be right?
Sommet handled federal tax returns, payroll, 401(k) plans and health insurance for small businesses in Tennessee and other states. Federal authorities raided the company’s Cool Springs offices in 2010 and shut it down.
Federal prosecutors alleged Whitfield personally understated the wages Sommet paid on federal tax returns by nearly $80 million between late 2008 to early 2010, a sum that led to more than $16 million in unpaid federal taxes. They also argued Whitfield used Sommet client funds to prop up other businesses he owned, as well as pay for a house boat.
Whitfield denied the charges that he skimmed money from business clients.
