ATTORNEY MENTAL HEALTH IN THE NEWS - LAW 360 - Cuban American Bar Assoc. Zeroes In On Attys' Mental Health 08-25-2017



Dear MDL Litigators,

Attorney Mental Health is a major topic of conversation this month. Following the suicide of brilliant, highly successful Cuban American attorney Ervin Gonzalez, who hung himself at his Coral Gables mansion on June 9, 2017, the Cuban American Bar Association in Miami is taking positive steps to help attorneys.

“Cuban American Bar Assoc. Zeroes In On Attys' Mental Health By Carolina Bolado Law360, Miami (August 25, 2017, 9:47 PM EDT) -- After the suicide in June of a prominent Miami attorney rocked the local legal community, the Cuban American Bar Association is making mental health a focus, starting with an annual luncheon Friday that featured attorney Brian Cuban — brother of businessman Mark Cuban — to talk about his struggle with addiction and depression. Cuban, who joked that he is “a Cuban, but not Cuban,” told the crowd of attorneys and judges how he would go into court high on cocaine and attend mediation sessions hung over..”

This following the American Bar Association’s Report on Attorney Mental Health, “The Path to Lawyer Well Being: Practical Recommendations for Positive Change”, August 14, 2017, shows the Cuban Bar Association in Miami is serious about Attorney Mental Health.

Our profession confronts a dwindling market share as the public turns to more accessible, affordable alternative legal service providers.  ….To maintain public confidence in the profession, to meet the need for innovation in how we deliver legal services, to increase access to justice, and to reduce the level of toxicity that has allowed mental health and substance use disorders to fester among our colleagues, we have to act now.  Bree Buchanan, Esq. James C. Coyle, Esq. Task Force Co-Chairs”

"This report’s recommendations focus on five central themes:
(1) identifying stakeholders and the role each of us can play in reducing the level of toxicity in our profession,
(2) eliminating the stigma associated with help seeking behaviors,
(3) emphasizing that well-being is an indispensable part of a lawyer’s duty of competence,
(4) educating lawyers, judges, and law students on lawyer well-being issues, and
(5) taking small, incremental steps to change how law is practiced and how lawyers are regulated to instill greater well-being in the profession."

“Lawyers, judges and law students are faced with an increasingly competitive and stressful profession. Studies show that substance use, addiction and mental disorders, including depression and thoughts of suicide—often unrecognized—are at shockingly high rates. David R Brink*, Past President, American Bar Association”

I sincerely hope this will also be featured at Mass Torts Made Perfect, October 18-20, 2017 at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas by brilliant attorney Mike Papantonio of Levin Pantonio.

A FEW MEN CONTROL THE LIVES OF OVER A HUNDRED THOUSAND 
#MESH INJURED WOMEN PLAINTIFFS IN WEST VIRGINIA!


SELF DESCRIBED "MEDICO-LEGAL EXPERTS"

GAVE US THE ASBESTOS MESOTHELIOMA MONSTROUS LEGAL FUND THAT IS 

STILL PLAGUING NOT ONLY THE ASBESTOS INJURED MEN & WOMEN 

BUT ALSO PLAGUES THE COURT SYSTEM.

WHY? FALSE EVIDENCE PRESENTED BY DEFENSE ATTORNEYS 
IN THE MASSIVE ASBESTOS CLASS ACTIONS IN THE 70'S & 80'S. 

GUESS WHAT? THAT HAS NOW LED TO 13,000 CASES BEING DISMISSED OFF THE DOCKET IN WEST VIRGINIA BY JUDGE GOODWIN UNDER PTO 273.

WHY?

BECAUSE THEY HAVE NOT HAD MESH REMOVAL SURGERY!

THE FIX IS IN TO PROTECT ETHICON/J&J BY PLAINTIFF'S ATTORNEYS!

IN SETTLEMENT COSTS.

"DON'T KILL THE COMPANY!" HAS WORKED ONCE AGAIN BECAUSE OF THE REPEAT ENTRENCHED PLAYERS WHO CONTROL CLASS ACTION
& MULTIDISTRICT LITIGATIONS!


FOR YEARS NOW PLAINTIFF'S ATTORNEYS HAVE BEEN LITIGATING WOMEN'S HEALTH,  "PROVING" THE ABDOMINAL SACRAL COLPOPEXY 
IS A BETTER SAFER PROCEDURE THAN
TRANSVAGINAL PLACEMENT OF SURGICAL MESH!

DID YOU CONSULT AN ATTORNEY
FOR YOUR FEMALE REPRODUCTIVE SYSTEM ISSUES?

WAS HE THERE FOR THE EXAMINATION BY YOUR DOCTOR?

DID HE GO TO MEDICAL SCHOOL? 

THAT'S A NO!

PLAINTIFF'S ATTORNEYS "BETTER SAFER" PROCEDURE CONTINUE TO CAUSE SEVERE PHYSICAL HARM TO WOMEN, THEIR CHILDREN, THEIR FAMILIES, 
THEIR FRIENDS AND BUSINESS ASSOCIATES 
AND WILL FOR DECADES TO COME. 

THEIR PHILOSOPHY,"DON'T KILL THE COMPANY"

Abstract  New procedures and materials for incontinence and prolapse are proliferating rapidly.

Surgical procedures were developed by physicians and carried their names, but over the last 15 years, these procedures are developed by industry and bear the trade names of the companies selling the kits needed to perform them.

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approves devices, not procedures, and does not require submission of efficacy or adverse-event data to gain this approval by the 510-K process.

Evidence-based medicine is lacking in the performance of these procedures that may be considered experimental by an insurance company or malpractice carrier with denial of payment or coverage.

Physicians and hospitals are exposing themselves to financial, legal, and ethical risks when performing or allowing such procedures to be performed. Informed consent from the patient cannot be obtained.

We must not confuse medical marketing with evidence-based medicine.

THE MENTALLY ILL ATTORNEY IN AMERICA: YES, MY PERCEPTION AND OPINION OF THE SAD STATE OF AFFAIRS FOR PLAINTIFFS IN #MESH MULTIDISTRICT LITIGATION IS CORRECT! AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION ISSUES REPORT "THE PATH TO LAWYER WELLNESS"!

RECENT POSTS HERE AT "THELADYISACHAMP" HAVE FOCUSED ON THE MENTAL HEALTH OF ATTORNEYS WHO OPENLY STAND UP FOR CORPORATIONS WHO INTENTIONALLY ALLOW HARM TO HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PLAINTIFFS WITH #MESH INJURIES AND #ASBESTOS DISEASES!

THE MOTTO "DON'T KILL THE COMPANY!" 
HAS TO END!

THE AMERICAN BAR ASSOCIATION (@ABANews)  
RECOGNIZES A HIGH PERCENTAGE OF 
SUBSTANCE ABUSE, ADDICTION AND MENTAL DISORDERS 
AMONG ITS MEMBER ATTORNEYS! 

The ABA issued a report by a task force, "The Path to Lawyer Wellness: Practical Recommendations for Positive Changes". Below are some quotes from the report: 


“Lawyers, judges and law students are faced with an increasingly competitive and stressful profession. Studies show that substance use, addiction and mental disorders, including depression and thoughts of suicide—often unrecognized—are at shockingly high rates.

As a consequence the National Task Force on Lawyer Well-being, under the aegis of CoLAP (the ABA Commission on Lawyer Assistance programs) has been formed to promote nationwide awareness, recognition and treatment. This Task Force deserves the strong support of every lawyer and bar association.”

David R Brink*
Past President
American Bar Association

"This report’s recommendations focus on five central themes:
(1) identifying stakeholders and the role each of us can play in reducing the level of toxicity in our profession, (2) eliminating the stigma associated with help seeking behaviors,
(3) emphasizing that well-being is an indispensable part of a lawyer’s duty of competence,
(4) educating lawyers, judges, and law students on lawyer well-being issues, and
(5) taking small, incremental steps to change how law is practiced and how lawyers are regulated to instill greater well-being in the profession."

AS PLAINTIFFS, IF YOU HAVE PROBLEMS WITH YOUR ATTORNEY'S 
REPRESENTATION OF YOUR CASE, 
REALIZE YOU MAY JUST HAVE AN ATTORNEY 
WITH ONE OF THESE DISORDERS OR ADDICTIONS...
NEGATIVELY AFFECTING YOU, YOUR CASE AND YOUR LIFE!

ASBESTOS DEFENDER HENRY GARRARD III CONFLICT OF INTEREST IN TALC LITIGATION BECAUSE NOT INVESTIGATING ASBESTOS CONTENT OF TALC? EVA ECHEVERRIA V JOHNSON & JOHNSON?

While Henry Garrard III defended Pittsburgh Corning from 1982-1999, his State of the Art (SOA) defense was based on the Threshold Limit Values (TLV) – which HAD NO VALUE and HAD NO BASIS IN FACT.  

“The origin and development of the asbestos Threshold Limit Value: scientific indifference and corporate influence.” “In this article, the authors address the historical development of the American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists' asbestos exposure guideline. They demonstrate that the proposed guideline was known to be inadequate when it was first proposed, was severely criticized between 1946 and 1968, but nonetheless was promulgated annually and remained unchanged 1971.” Int J Health Serv. 1995;25(4):667-96. Egilman DS1, Reinert AA.

In other words, LOTS OF PEOPLE DIED because of the corrupt, dishonest corporations and their lies from 1933 through the early 1990’s because litigation never told the truth. And in fact, Henry Garrard III taught his fellow defense lawyers how to perpetuate the lies:

In a 1987 seminar for defense attorneys entitled ‘‘State of the Art Defense: Is it Real?,’’ Henry Garrard III, a defense attorney, described how defense counsel should use the SOA defense in asbestos litigation:
Although OSHA is a creation of the 1970’s, the basic mindset of the general public is that the government has been involved intricately in control of workplace exposures almost forever. Most of the people today have not grown up in an atmosphere that did not include significant government involvement. This can become a play for state-of-the-art throughout… Probably the final thing to consider is the necessity to warn and the different timings of warnings is to attempt to get the jury to place themselves back in the 1960’s, 50’s, and 40’s with the realization that times were different and expectations were different. Human factors experts or historians in general may be experts that we as defense lawyers have overlooked which might be helpful in making these presentations. Additionally, industrial hygienists who are not medical doctors probably should be used to a greater extent than they are used now to show the newness of that field and how they in fact rely upon the threshold limit value concept in general. After all, the threshold limit value concept is probably the best thing the defense has in its arsenal.

The asbestos product manufacturer courtroom defense is also based on the argument that manu facturers and downstream companies that used or  sold products had no duty to warn of hazards and  thus have no liability if their products resulted in exposures were under the TLV. This defense tries to convince juries that the TLV was statutory  rather than voluntary and that the government would have intervened to protect workers and the public had the industry’s products exceeded this limit. Essentially they argue that mere existence of a proposed safe level (the TLV) allowed them to escape liability that resulted from injuries that occurred to workers who were exposed to asbestos or asbestos-containing products that the industries sold. However, because the TLV was not health protective for either asbestosis or lung cancer, the companies must also contest the historical acceptance of the asbestos– cancer relationship.

As early as 1976, the AIA – an organization of asbestos product manufacturers and fiber suppliers – gathered to design the SOA defense. The defense was dependent upon the work that MetLife and others had previously done to cover up important cancer and TLV information. The AIA formed a ‘‘Legal/ Medical Research Program’’ and stated that ‘‘the primary purpose of the Legal/Medical Research Program is to improve the quality of defenses for asbestos companies involved in third party liability suits in tort.’’ [emphasis added]

In 1986, OSHA did indeed lower the PEL to 0.2 f/cc – considered ‘‘the lowest level feasible’’ at that time. OSHA  estimated that cancer mortality risk for lifetime exposures (45 years) at 0.2 f/cc would be 6.7 deaths per 1000 workers, and 3.36 deaths per 1000 workers at 0.1 f/cc. © W. S.

DEFINE RESOLUTION PLEASE MR. GARRARD!
