3. Health Republic Insurance of New York. An Obamacare company. Health Republic was a failed co-op currently under investigation for underreporting its financial situation (Cooking the books), yet used hundreds of thousands in taxpayer dollars for lobbying. They hired Alston & Bird around the time the co-op announced that it was going out of business. Earl Pomeroy, a former Democratic Congressman from North Dakota, and Bob Siggins, the longtime Chief of Staff to Pomeroy, were hired by the firm to lobby U.S. Senate, the U.S. House of Representatives, and the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services. Between April 2014 and September 30, 2015, Alston & Bird were paid $280,000 in taxpayer dollars for its lobbying services. According to the Department of Health and Human Services no portion of the loans given to the Obamacare company could be used for "propaganda purposes, attempts to influence legislation, or marketing." Federal law additionally states, "No appropriated funds may be expended by the recipient of a Federal contract, grant, loan, or cooperative agreement to pay any person for influencing or attempting to influence an officer or employee of any agency, a Member of Congress, an officer or employee of Congress, or an employee of a Member of Congress in connection with any of the following covered Federal actions: the awarding of any Federal contract, the making of any Federal grant, the making of any Federal loan, the entering into of any cooperative agreement, and the extension, continuation, renewal, amendment, or modification of any Federal contract, grant, loan, or cooperative agreement."

4. Alston and Bird were given the 2011 Religious Freedom Award from the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) Foundation of Southern California for its pro bono work on the Sukhjinder S. Basra v. Matthew Cate, Secretary of the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation, case. Basra claimed his religious rights were violated in prison.

The list of strategic partners posted on the Joint Ventures website is a virtual who’s who of corrupt organizations, including Deloitte which has at least 5 open investigations for the collapse of MG Rover, accounting fraud that led to the collapse of several companies, the Cerco Group crises, and more. Qualcomm-bribery, FCPA investigation, Qualcomm’s purchase of NXP is under investigation in the EU, Qualcomm is under investigation for mobile chip dominance. In all Qualcomm is under investigation on 3 continents. Accenture-under investigation for bribes and paid a 63.7 million dollar fine for accepting kickbacks from Oracle, IBM, and Sun Microsystems.

Cozen O'Connor is a large U.S. law firm based in Center City Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

In September 2009, the firm launched the subsidiary, Cozen O'Connor Public Strategies. The subsidiary operates out of the firm's Washington, D.C., Pennsylvania, New York, New Jersey and Delaware offices. Chaired by Mark Alderman, the group also includes Managing Partner, Howard Schweitzer, the first COO of the Troubled Asset Relief Program. (TARP).

Howard Schweitzer and former Congressman Ronald Dellums were hired to lobby members of Congress on Capitol Hill to repeal the Magnitsky Act. (Sergei Magnitsky was said to have uncovered massive Russian government corruption and died as a result). The Magnitsky Act: Behind the Scenes is a documentary by film maker Andrei Nekrasov, detailing the life of Sergei Magnitsky and what they claim is a fake portrayal by western journalism. Andrei Nekrasov also claims his film has been blacklisted in the United States. In 2016 Nekrasov wrote to the Department of Justice saying…“I hope that my story will help you understand the methods of Russian operatives in Washington and how they use U.S. enablers to achieve major foreign policy goals without disclosing those interests.”

Cozen O'Connor...

Hedge Fund Executive William Browder, grandson of American Communist Party leader Earl Browder, and co-founder of Hermitage Capital Management who is now a British citizen, raised the stakes even more when he testified that the people involved in arranging a one-time showing of Nekrasov’s documentary, The Magnitsky Act: Behind the Scenes, at the Newseum should be held accountable under FARA, which has penalties ranging up to five years in prison. …While he loosely accused a number of Americans of felonies, Browder continued to claim that Magnitsky was a crusading “lawyer” who uncovered a $230 million tax-fraud scheme carried out ostensibly by Browder’s companies but, which, according to Browder’s account, was really engineered by corrupt Russian police officers who then arrested Magnitsky and later were responsible for his death in a Russian jail.

Cozen O'Connor provides counsel to the detainees at Guantanamo Bay.

Robinson Calcagnie Robinson Shapiro Davis, Inc is located in Newport Beach , Ca.Mark Robinson- founder and senior partner, is a class action attorney.

Robinson Calcagnie...

The Mark Robinson Lecture is at the University at Irvine School of law. A recent lecture by Professor Michael Klarman is called “The Constitution as a Coup Against Public Opinion”. Klarman specializes in the constitutional history of race. He contends that the Supreme Court of the United States has historically been hostile to the rights of minorities and has not consistently enforced constitutional protections for them. Klarman argues that civil rights protections arise out of social mores from which the court takes its cue. He wrote a book titled “The Framers' Coup: The Making of the United States Constitution.” It claims the constitution was a power grab by our founding fathers and that the constitution is anti democratic.

In 2010 Mark Robinson’s law firm was hired by the Newport Beach District Attorney- Tony Rackauckas to help represent the city in a class action lawsuit against Toyota. The problem was Tony Rackauckas and Jeoffrey Robinson were friends from way back. They worked together as deputy district attorneys in the 1980s. Fifteen years later, Robinson’s Newport Beach law firm helped Rackauckas – then the D.A. – sue ARCO, Shell and Thrifty for contaminating groundwater which garnered $25 million in civil penalties and a cleanup that has cost the companies more than $100 million. The process for which Robinson’s law firm was chosen to represent Newport Beach was shady, it wasn’t sent out to bid, just handed to Robinson’s law firm. The L.A Times wrote an article about it, calling it a “sweetheart deal”.

Hagens Berman is a national class-action law firm.

Hagens Berman currently represents the cities of San Francisco and Oakland, Calif. in two lawsuits filed against BP, Chevron Corp., Exxon Mobil Corp., Royal Dutch Shell PLC and ConocoPhillips alleging that the Big Oil giants are responsible for the cities’ costs of protecting themselves from global warming-induced sea level rise, including expenses to construct seawalls. The two complaints, filed Sept. 19, 2017, in California Superior Court in San Francisco and Alameda counties name as defendant five fossil fuel corporations that have produced more fossil fuels than any other investor-owned companies in the world and seeks to hold them accountable for past, ongoing and future-planned development of fossil fuels, which is directly impacting the cities’ risk of rising sea levels, the suit says. Attorneys expect to get a settlement into the billions of dollars.

lindataylor commented on Monday, Nov 06, 2017 at 15:03 PM

Hagens, Berman...

According to a study used for the lawsuits... Richard Heede wrote a study that found nearly two-thirds of all industrial carbon dioxide (CO2) and methane (CH4) emissions can be traced to the products of a number of major industrial carbon producers; 83 producers of coal, oil, natural gas, and 7 cement manufacturers.

Richard Heede is the Principal of Climate Mitigation Services, a consultancy focused on climate stewardship from emissions inventories to profitable action. Climate Mitigation Services conducts greenhouse gas inventories, develops protocols, defines emissions boundaries, and identifies technologies and strategies to profitably reduce emissions.

Heede also wrote "Sample projects: ExxonMobil Emissions Inventory 1882-2002: Methods & Results"... for Friends of the Earth Trust and "Black Hydrogen: An Assessment of the U.S. Department of Energy's Plans for Nuclear Hydrogen Production" for Greenpeace USA.

This guy is a text book environmentalist that has found a way to cash in on his written "studies" that align with his own position on the environment.

Environmentalists are using environmentalists to sue oil and gas for unprecedented amounts of money so they can establish a mega slush fund under the guise of "climate change'. http://climatemitigation.com/rick-hee...

lindataylor commented on Monday, Nov 06, 2017 at 15:11 PM

Hagens Berman...

September 10, 2017

Another Study Tied to La Jolla Conference Attempts to Connect Climate Change to Energy Companies.

..."The research draws upon work first begun by Richard Heede in 2014, when he published research tracking the carbon dioxide emissions of the world’s largest publicly traded and state-controlled fossil energy companies. Since its release, the study has been the subject of heated debate.

The study relies on several significant suppositions to reach its conclusions. When estimating the impact of historical carbon dioxide emissions from major carbon producers over the course of the coming two decades, the authors assume that no major volcanic eruptions will occur. It also presumes that energy companies should be the ones held responsible for the environmental costs of the fuels they produce, even though they are not the end energy consumers."

..."Critics of the study say that this is part of a larger plan to demonize large energy companies. Steve Everley, senior advisor to Energy In Depth, connects the study to a 2012 conference in La Jolla, California organized by Naomi Oreskes and the Union of Concerned Scientists, where environmentalists met to develop a strategy for how to take down big oil companies. Four out of the paper’s seven authors attended the conference (Ekwurzel, Heede, Allen, and Frumhoff), as did Michael MacCracken, who the authors thank for his “constructive comments.” Oreskes was the author of another recent paper targeting ExxonMobil that has received significant criticism."

“This study – if you can even call it that – is exactly what the Union of Concerned Scientists said it needed to produce five years ago in order to create ‘wrongdoers’ of global warming. The conclusions were written before the research began, because that’s how political campaigns work,” says Everley, who questioned the effectiveness of targeting specific companies in an attempt to solve a problem that the paper’s authors admit is global.

Hagens Berman...

September 5th, 2017

Press Release:

SEATTLE – Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro LLP announced today it will renew its focus on environmental law with a dedicated environmental practice area devoted to litigating major environmental cases. The efforts will allow Hagens Berman to double-down on its promise to stand up for the environment by adding three esteemed environmental litigators to the firm’s national legal team of more than 70 attorneys.

The 24-year veteran firm to the plaintiffs’ litigation scene welcomes Matthew Pawa, Benjamin Krass and Wesley Kelman formerly of Pawa Law Group, P.C. of Boston, trailblazers in this new and important area of environmental liability. Hagens Berman has represented clients against Exxon Mobil affected by the Exxon Valdez oil spill, stopped Dole from degrading drinking water in Guatemala, reigned in air pollution from grass farmers in Idaho and is currently fighting against a surge of dirty diesel cars illegally put on highways by the nation’s largest automakers.

Hagens Berman hired Mathew Pawa...

Article...

"Is this the smoking gun that proves collusion and corruption between Democrat New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman and radical Big Green groups such as NRDC? In March, AG Schneiderman and a handful of other Democrat Attorneys General, along with huckster Al Gore, gathered in New York City to discuss a coordinated legal attack against oil and gas companies. MDN has been shouting since last year that Schneiderman, a corrupt politician occupying the state’s highest legal office, has begun a witch hunt targeting companies like ExxonMobil"...

..."Even more obscene is the back-room dealing with Big Green radicals, which takes us to that New York City meeting of a couple of weeks ago. At that meeting was Matt Pawa, a Massachusetts lawyer and radical “green” who launches lawsuit after lawsuit on climate change issues. Schneiderman’s office asked Pawa to keep his participation in the March meeting in the city a secret. Email exchange between Mathew Pawa and the AG's office.

The emails show that Matt Pawa, a Massachusetts lawyer who is often involved in climate change litigation, privately briefed several state attorneys general and their staff on such litigation during a March 29 meeting at New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman's office. The briefing apparently came just hours before the attorneys general from 15 states, the District of Columbia and the U.S. Virgin Islands announced their effort at a press conference.

The following day, Pawa emailed Lemuel Srolovic, chief of New York Attorney General's Environmental Protection Bureau, to tell him that a Wall Street Journal reporter had called him requesting an interview. Pawa asked, "What should I say if she asks if I attended?"

Srolovic responded: "My ask (sic) is if you speak to the reporter, to not confirm that you attended or otherwise discuss the event."

Collusion, and Fraud are alleged with the filing of lawsuits by San Francisco and Alameda against BP, Chevron Corp, Exxon Mobil Corp, Royal Dutch Shell PLC and ConocoPhillips. I would strongly suggest attorney's for these companies get to the bottom of these allegations.
