When The Judge Or Opposing Counsel Infers Mental Illness    INVOKE ADA!
A court bullying tactic is for the judge or opposing counsel to infer that you have a mental condition or illness, or they (threaten to, or actually) order a psychological evaluation, INVOKE the ADA at this very point and ask for a continuance so that you can pursue formulation and application for reasonable accommodations.

"If I have depression or anxiety issues, can I get mental anguish damages under the FDCPA?"
An abusive debt collector harasses you. You want to sue under the FDCPA (Fair Debt Collection Practices Act). Because this abusive collector has caused you mental anguish. But someone tells you, "If you have ever had depression or anxiety, you can't get mental anguish damages." Is this true? No. Having "pre-existing" conditions -- such as depression or mental anxiety -- just means that you are more vulnerable to someone harassing you. It would be like having back surgery and then some idiot runs a red light and plows into you. He can't say, "Well, since you had a bad back I'm not responsible for hurting you even worse!" (They do argue this but we have no problem with this argument when we sue reckless drivers who break the safety rules and harm other drivers). So don't let this type of non sense worry you or make you not file suit against an abusive debt collector. You don't get compensation for what you were already suffering before the collector abused you but you can get paid for the extra damage the collector has caused you. We'll be happy to help you think through your options if you live in Alabama or want to file suit in Alabama. Best wishes and thanks for watching this video! John John G. Watts Watts & Herring, LLC Serving consumers across Alabama 205-879-2447 http://www.alabamaconsumer.com/ "No representation is made that the quality of the legal services to be performed is greater than the quality of legal services performed by other lawyers."
Spoiler Alert: You can't. (Please read below, upon further thought I have some very important updates on the involvement of police that I mention in the video) So maybe you've seen someone parking in a disabled parking spot and then walking right into a space or maybe you've seen a wheelchair user move their legs or get up from their chair, maybe you've seen a cane or a walker user take a few steps without it, maybe you've seen younger, prettier, even larger people using power scooters at the market or at theme parks? NONE of those things imply that someone is "faking" a disability Disabilities are diverse and fall on spectrums, many disabilities are invisible, and these false accusations of "faking" put disabled lives at risk of harassment and violence. EDIT: although you technically *could* call law enforcement rather than approach someone yourself, please actually... DON'T. hat's actually a dangerous action to take, police are often not well trained in regards to people with disabilities and their possible intersections, and you could endanger someone further by getting the police involved. Please just mind your own business. Invisible disabilities exist no matter, age, race, size, fashion choices, etc. There is no reason to suspect someone of faking the need for their decal.

Family: I had a full power of attorney Court A POA only allows you to speak on her behalf. The case law in the state is quite clear. [note: I've litigated this issue myself as seen in the thumbnails. If it is different in Washington State then the Family has a right to certify a conflict between the States and go Federal on this]. She cannot speak on her behalf. I understand and I don't dispute that you have a power of attorney. Non-individual entities must be represented by counsel. Family: I gave you several examples.. precedents.... You cannot file on behalf of an estate unless you are an attorney. [note: This may be a false distinction, a legal red herring -- Susan was representing the daughter of the Decedent, standing in her shoes.] "I have given you several past precedents where superior court where I showed you can file a claim and sign it when you have full representation. She falls under ADA as I told you..... " [note: The Decedent's daughter is, inter alia, PTSD after seeing her mother in the hospital parking lot where the idiot Pierce County Transit driver left her. As to the ADA, Dr. Karin Huffer has a few things to say]. Court: The Statute of Limitations has run. You may seek review. [note: they will] ****** I interjected 2 minutes into the Court's On-Record Discussion with the Family..... and the following colloquy ensued. KingCast/Mortgage Movies: Your Honor with all due respect I have a pending Notice of Media Coverage (similar to the one I filed with Wally Brown last fall). Court: I'm not hearing that. I find your Notice to be contrived. KingCast/Mortgage Movies: How is this contrived. It's the same document I've used in hundreds of court cases to run video. Court: Your Notice is denied.

Specialist employment solicitor, James Watkins, discusses mental health discrimination and when seeking legal action may be an option. The employment lawyers at Slater and Gordon specialise in discrimination claims. For more information call freephone 0800 916 9060 or visit https://www.slatergordon.co.uk/contact-us/ James Watkins is an employment lawyer at Slater and Gordon Lawyers in Cardiff. Transcript: If an employee with a mental health condition has suffered with that condition for a long time, or they’re likely to be suffering from that condition for a long time, then it could well amount to a disability under the equality act if it has a substantial adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities. For most people who have a mental health problem, yes it does have that substantial adverse effect on their ability to carry out normal day-to-day activities, which could simply be socialising, or it could be dressing themselves, having the energy and the enthusiasm to get out of bed or to get out of the house. For anyone that does have a disability that’s covered under the equality act, if they’re subjected to a detriment, which could be less favourable treatment that means that they’re disadvantaged because of their mental health condition then they could have a claim to the employment tribunal for disability discrimination. But even if a person doesn’t have a disability, they could still have a legal claim if the employer is behaving in such a way that their conduct completely destroys all trust and confidence in the employment relationship. And in those circumstances the employee should think about taking legal advice.

Workers  Compensation, ADA, and FMLA   When Leaves Collide! April 19, 2017
The Federal Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) provides leave for qualifying individuals for their own serious health condition or to care for a close relative. Employees injured on the job may qualify under the Workers’ Compensation program. The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) provides leaves as a reasonable accommodation of a qualifying disability. Sometimes these leaves run concurrently, sometimes they don’t, and sometimes one leave type will then require a second type be offered. Don’t forget COBRA, which governs when an employee is entitled to continuation of health care benefits at their cost. Sound confusing? It is - and the laws overlap adding to the confusion. In this webinar Kathryn Carlson, SPHR will provide an overview of the regulations and provide expert advice on effectively managing various employee types of employee leaves, even when they collide. She will also share the answers to the top ten questions on leave management, taken from the thousands of questions KPA HR consultants answer for clients each year. Audience members will also have a time to submit their questions. This webinar will be presented by VP of Human Management Products, Kathryn Carlson. Kathryn has over 25 years of experience in human resource management. For the past thirteen years she has focused on developing HR software and programs to improve efficiency, reduce risk, and ensure compliance.

Is it easy to prove a disability in the workplace? Ask the Expert
What is the definition of disability? A disabled person is defined as someone with a physical or mental impairment that has a ‘substantial’ and ‘long-term’ effect on their ability to do normal daily activities (Equality Act 2010). What are the benefits of employing disabled people? There are nearly 7 million people of working age in the UK with a disability or have a health condition. Historically there has been a significant gap between the proportion of disabled people employed compared with non-disabled people. Encouraging applications for people with a disability is good for business. It can help you to: • increase the number of high-quality applicants available • create a workforce that reflects the diverse range of customers it serves and the community in which it is based • bring additional skills to the business The costs of making reasonable adjustments to accommodate disabled employees are often low and there are help and support from other organisations. The benefits of retaining an experienced, skilled employee who has acquired an impairment are usually greater than recruiting and training new staff. What are reasonable adjustments? Employers have a legal duty to make reasonable adjustments to support disabled job applicants and employees. This means ensuring disabled people can overcome any substantial disadvantages they may have to do their jobs and progressing in work (Equality Act 2010). Expert employment solicitor Robert Rocker explains and answers some questions about disability discrimination and what is classed as a disability? Transcript of the video My name is Mark Ferron from Castle Associates and I speak to employment law experts across the country and in this short video I am speaking to employment law expert and solicitor Robert Rocker about disability discrimination Is it easy to prove disability discrimination in the workplace? To prove disability discrimination an employee has to show that they have a disability and that that disability impacts on their day-to-day activities. They also have to show that the employer was made aware of the disability and that the employer failed to make reasonable adjustments. How is a disability identified or assessed? A disability has to be a mental or physical disability that is substantial and it had long-term effect and impacts on your day-to-day activities. Now, this can be proved to your employer by the production of medical records, sometimes employers would want to do occupational health investigations. Those are the ways that you would seek to establish that you've got a disability. Thank you for watching I really hope you enjoyed this short video and if you did enjoy it please like and share.

Anxiety Disorder and Social Security Disability: Winning Strategies for Your Claim
Severe, unrelenting anxiety disorder can make it all but impossible to hold a job. Stress caused by a reprimand from your boss, chatter from co-workers, or complaints from an unhappy customer can overwhelm you to the point where you lose the capacity to get through a workday. If you are extremely sensitive to stress to the level where your anxiety level leaves you non-functional, you may have a viable and legitimate claim for Social Security disability benefits. As I discuss in this video, anxiety cases in Social Security disability claims can be difficult because there are no objective tests like an MRI or CT scan that allows your doctor to “see” your anxiety. But long term treatment records and support from your doctor in the form of a functional capacity evaluation or a statement that you meet Listing 12.06 can be enough to convince a judge to award benefits. Many of my clients who struggle with anxiety also struggle with idea of starting the process and applying for disability. Often, knowing how the process works can reduce your stress level. =============== FREE SURVIVAL KIT ================ Don't know where to begin?

2015 Trial Lawyer of the Year Finalist - Disability Rights Network of Pennsylvania v. Wetzell
The Disability Rights Network of Pennsylvania conducted an exhaustive investigation of Pennsylvania’s prisons and discovered that roughly 800 of the 2400 prisoners in solitary confinement had serious mental illnesses, a significantly disproportionate share compared to the general prison population. DRN tried to engage directly with officials at the state Department of Corrections, but when talks proved unsuccessful, they filed a lawsuit—one of only a handful ever brought concerning solitary confinement and its impact on prisoners with mental illnesses. The lawsuit was so meticulously executed that, within weeks of filing, the DOC announced it was ready to negotiate. The resulting settlement finalized this year was remarkable in its breadth. The agreement ensures prompt and regular mental health evaluation for all Pennsylvania prisoners, ends solitary confinement for those with serious mental illness absent exceptional circumstances. The settlement also establishes three types of new mental health treatment units. In all, the suit led to state-wide reform of mental health treatment for 52,000 prisoners in Pennsylvania, including over 4,000 total prisoners in the system with a serious mental illness.

A disability insurance claim caused by a pain disorder is not a depression disability claim
We are available nationwide: call 855-319-4421 or email: https://www.diattorney.com/free-consultation/?referrer=yt Disability insurance attorney Stephen Jessup discusses issues involved with disability insurance companies arguing that a claimant has a mental disability such as depression and not a physically disabling condition. A disability carrier makes this argument as most long term disability policies have a limited pay period of 24 months for any disability that is a mental nervous condition. In most disability insurance claims depression is secondary to a pain condition caused by a physical disability. This is an issue that our disability lawyers deal with on a daily basis. Is important to be prepared for this argument from a disability insurance company and to take actions to defeat this often unreasonable argument. Attorney Jessup also discusses a recent appeal that he won for a client in which Prudential Insurance Company initially claimed the client had a mental disability and not a physical disability. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- 6 WAYS WE CAN HELP YOU 1 - Applying For Disability Benefits: https://www.diattorney.com/disability-application/?referrer=yt 2 - Appeal Of A Disability Denial (ERISA): https://www.diattorney.com/group-erisa-claim-denial/?referrer=yt 3 - ERISA Disability Lawsuits: https://www.diattorney.com/erisa-lawsuits-trials/?referrer=yt 4 - Non-ERISA Disability Benefit Denials: https://www.diattorney.com/disability-claim-denial-benefits-denied/?referrer=yt 5 - Monthly Disability Claim Handling: https://www.diattorney.com/monthly-claim-handling/?referrer=yt 6 - Lump-Sum Disability Policy Buyouts: https://www.diattorney.com/lump-sum-policy-buyouts/?referrer=yt ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- Our nationwide disability insurance attorneys have represented thousands of disabled claimants with their claims for either short term disability, long term disability, or long-term care benefits against every major disability insurance company.

Transgender Employment: ADA, Sex Discrimination Case Against Cabela's
U.S. District Judge Joseph F. Leeson just approved the first known transgender rights lawsuit alleging discrimination under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) to move forward. This case is unique for several reasons, but most significantly because when the ADA was written, Congress specifically excluded transgender people with a clause on "sexual behavior disorders." Blatt experienced gender dysphoria, a condition brought on by the extreme distress transgender people can experience when being excluded and ostracized by their peers. ALJ feature reporter Gina Passarella, The Legal Intelligencer reporter PJ D'Annunzio and transgender rights attorneys Omar Gonzalez-Pagan, Thomas Ude and Scott Goldshaw explain why this case is so significant in this 3 minute clip pulled from our program "Pronoun Wars: The Law & Transgender in America." "It is fairly possible to interpret the term gender identity disorders narrowly to refer to simply the condition of identifying with a different gender, not to exclude from ADA coverage disabling conditions that persons who identify with a different gender may have—such as Blatt's gender dysphoria, which substantially limits her major life activities of interacting with others, reproducing, and social and occupational functioning," Leeson said. "Because this interpretation allows the court to avoid the constitutional questions raised in this case, it is the court's duty to adopt it." Clip from Program 1715.

Ask Howard Anything / August 2018
[If you use a screen reader and need to access the caption file transcript, go to "More..." and click on "Transcript"] The NAD needs you to contact your Senators to tell them you oppose Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court and ask that they nominate another person. #AskHoward For the review by the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law and letters from other Disability Rights Organizations -- https://www.nad.org/2018/08/27/ask-howard-anything-august-2018/ VIDEO DESC & TRANSCRIPT: Howard A. Rosenblum is sitting at his desk. The NAD logo appears on bottom right corner as a watermark. HOWARD: We want to let you know that the NAD opposes the U.S. Supreme Court Nomination. The Supreme Court is the "last" stop when it comes to making nationwide decisions; cases start at lower courts before reaching the U.S. Supreme Court. The Supreme Court is occupied by nine justices. One justice, Anthony Kennedy, recently retired. The President nominated Brett Kavanaugh to replace Justice Kennedy. The U.S. Senate is reviewing the nomination, interviewing Kavanaugh about his background, opinions, ideas, and history as a judge. However, many disability rights organizations are now opposing this nomination because Kavanaugh's previous records, history, and opinions have not been good for the disability community. These disability rights organizations do not agree that Kavanaugh should become a Supreme Court Justice. The NAD does not usually get involved in political issues due to our status as a non-profit. However, given the importance of this issue and with many other disability rights organizations making their disagreement public, we are joining forces with them. The NAD's mission is to preserve, protect, and promote the civil, human, and linguistic rights of deaf and hard of hearing Americans. Kavanaugh's opinions and history as a judge does not align with our mission and any decisions he make will affect our civil, human, and linguistic rights. We must make sure the next Supreme Court Judge understands and protects our civil, human, and linguistic rights. Kavanaugh's record as a judge concerns us. One example of extreme importance involves his opinion on disability employment discrimination under the ADA and other laws, particularly one case that involved a deaf person. A deaf man, Adeyemi, sued the D.C. Government for not hiring him for a job position. Adeymi stated that his qualifications and experience were as good or better than other applicants, and therefore he should have been hired. Judge Kavanaugh wrote an opinion stating that Adeyemi's did not prove he is "significantly better qualified" than other applicants. This means Adeyemi would have had to prove he is much more qualified than the hired persons and other applicants to prove employment discrimination. This is a very difficult way to prove discrimination and is not fair. Deaf people should be able to get jobs based on reasonable standards of comparable qualifications. Another concern involves another case where the DC Government was sued for allowing doctors to perform surgeries without permission on people with cognitive disabilities. At the time, Judge Kavanaugh shared his opinion that the DC Government could indeed permit doctors to continue the surgeries without permission. In this case, those people with cognitive disabilities did not have medical decision making authority but the lawsuit sought to give them the power to question and discuss the implications of the surgery. Judge Kavanaugh decided that they don't need to be asked. Another concern about Kavanaugh are his opinions against the Affordable Care Act (ACA). While there are many views about the ACA, Kavanaugh's strong opposition against the ACA affects the right to affordable health insurance for many deaf people and people with disabilities. These are just among the many reasons the NAD is very concerned with the nomination of Kavanaugh to become a Supreme Court Justice. We encourage you to contact your Senators right now as they are deciding whether to accept or decline Kavanaugh's nomination to the U.S. Supreme Court. We need you to tell both of your two Senators in your state that you oppose Brett Kavanaugh for the U.S. Supreme Court and ask that they nominate another person. Resourceful links are provided in this video post with further information and research by the Bazelon Center for Mental Health Law. The Center conducted an intensive research on Kavanaugh's history. This video post also includes opposition letters from other disability rights organizations. Thank you.

Andersons Solicitors on Disability Discrimination - more common than you think
Workplace discrimination is unfortunately commonplace. We often hear about discrimination based on race or gender, but disability discrimination is more prevalent than ever before. Disability discrimination means treating a person less favourably than they would treat a person without a disability in the same circumstances. The Disability Discrimination Act attempts to eliminate discrimination against people with disabilities in various areas of public life including employment. ‘Disability’ has a broad meaning and includes total or partial loss of a physical or mental function, disease or illness, disfigurement and even learning difficulties. It is unlawful for an employer to discriminate against a person based on a disability in relation to hiring and firing decisions, denying access to promotions, training or other benefits, or other detrimental conduct. Employers often argue that they should be able to discriminate against a disabled worker who cannot perform the ‘inherent requirements of the job’; that is, the essential duties of the position. If a worker has a disability, an employer must consider how they could be provided with reasonable adjustments to assist them to perform their job. For example, providing a higher desk for a person in a wheelchair. Disability discrimination law is complex, but unfair discrimination should never be tolerated. Unreasonable employers should be held accountable. Want to know more about employment rights? Contact the Employment Law team at Andersons Solicitors at www.andersons.com.au
