Attorney David Goldman Guest Speaker at Sarasota Charity Organization Fund Raiser

SARASOTA, Fla. -- Attorney David L Goldman was a guest speaker at the "Night Of Hope" fundraising event, held by the Second Chance Last Opportunity charitable organization in Sarasota, Florida.

On the evening of Thursday, October 28, 2021 Second Chance Last Opportunity held a "Night of Hope" event to celebrate its 26th anniversary as a successful local 501(c)(3) charitable organization. The event took place at Michael's On East restaurant and raised over $50,000.

A 25th Anniversary event had originally been planned the previous year but was cancelled due to covid. During the pandemic Second Chance transformed itself into an emergency crisis center and distributed food and other items such as toiletries and diapers multiple days a week.

Second Chance was founded by the organization's CEO, Dr. April Glasco, and was originally a small storefront operation on MLK Jr. Blvd in Sarasota. Board Chairman, Attorney David L. Goldman, addressed the event crowd of over 150 attendees.

Goldman noted that the organization remained open throughout the pandemic and has served over 80,000 different individuals. A network of volunteers and suppliers was created to obtain and distribute the food and other supplies and remains intact to deliver services to those in need.

Goldman explained that despite the organization's new and expanded role, Second Chance continues to provide all of the other services that it had come to be known for, such as its life skills management and job training classes to transition clients from homelessness to permanent employment.

In the past few years Second Chance has also focused on the problems faced by young women, offering classes and workshops to help young women break the shackles of dependence and bad influences. Additionally, Second Chance provides children's programs such as its "Out of the Box" programs, as well as community festivals, art classes and more.

About Attorney David L. Goldman

Goldman, a Sarasota personal injury attorney for more than 30 years, has been associated with Second Chance for more than 16 years, initially serving as a volunteer before joining the board. For the past several years, Mr. Goldman has served as board chairman during which time the organization has expanded the services it provides. The law firm of which Goldman is partner, ("Justice Pays") was a Gold level sponsor of the event.

SANTA MONICA, Calif. -- Bug-A-Salt (a subsidiary of Skell Inc.) this month prevailed in a patent and trademark infringement lawsuit against Dillard's Department Stores, according to the Bug-A-Salt, attorney, Liat Cohen, Esq.

Dillard's, in a settlement, paid an undisclosed sum of money for selling counterfeit Bug-A-Salt guns to kill flies, mosquitos, and other insects. The case number is 1:20-CV-O1567-UNA and was filed in United States District Court of Delaware.

European Court of Human Rights Affirms Freedom of Religion or Belief of Russian Scientologist

LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- The European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) has once again affirmed the rights of Scientologists in Russia to practice their religion based on Article 9 of the ECHR Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, announced the Church of Scientology International.

Article 9 states:

"Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief, in worship, teaching, practice and observance.

"Freedom to manifest one's religion or beliefs shall be subject only to such limitations as are prescribed by law and are necessary in a democratic society in the interests of public safety, for the protection of public order, health or morals, or for the protection of the rights and freedoms of others."

In its September 28, 2021, judgment in Kuropyatnik v. Russia, (Application no. 64403/11), the ECHR ruled that Scientologist Vladimir Leonidovich Kuropyatnik, a Moscow Scientologist, was illegally detained by a Russian police officer who questioned him on the basis of his membership in the Scientology religion.

The Court found Kuropyatnik's October 13, 2010, detention deprived him of liberty and violated Articles 8 and 9 of the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms which guarantee the right to respect for private and family life and freedom of thought, conscience and religion.

The ECHR noted that at the time this incident took place, the Church of Scientology had been registered as a religious organization in Russia for more than two decades and that Russian authorities had consistently over the years acknowledged the religious nature of Scientology. This Court found Russian police targeting Mr. Kuropyatnik for being a Scientologist was a blatant abuse of his religious freedom by the Russian state and ordered Russia to pay him €8,000 in damages for violating his human rights.

This decision is consistent with the European Court of Human Rights landmark decision of 5 April 2007 in the case Church of Scientology Moscow v. Russia (Application no. 18147/02), which overturned the Moscow city government's refusal to register the Church of Scientology of Moscow as a religious organization. The Court found that Russia violated the rights of the Church of Scientology under ECHR Article 11 (the right to freedom of association) "read in the light of Article 9" (the right to freedom of religion) when it refused to reregister the Church of Scientology of Moscow.

Once again, the European Court of Human Rights has upheld that Scientologists are guaranteed the same rights by the European Convention on Human Rights granted to those of any other religious organization.

The European Court of Human Rights was established to create a mechanism for the resolution of human rights complaints against States parties to the Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms. The Convention was adopted by the Council of Europe in 1950. Located in Strasbourg, France, the Court has jurisdiction over 47 states in Europe, including Russia, with a combined population of some 820 million citizens.

This announcement was originally published as a blog on the Scientology Religion website. The Church of Scientology publishes this blog to help create a better understanding of the freedom of religion and belief and provide news on religious freedom and issues affecting this freedom around the world.

The Founder of the Scientology religion is L. Ron Hubbard and Mr. David Miscavige is the religion's ecclesiastical leader.

Strategic Capital Attends the 2021 Colorado Trial Lawyers Association Convention, Sponsors Special Events

LITTLETON, Colo. -- From Thursday, August 5 to Saturday, August 7, the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association (CTLA) held its annual convention. While they offered virtual attendance, they also hosted the conference in person in Steamboat Springs, Colorado. The Strategic Capital team joined them at The Steamboat Grand for the hybrid event, which was themed "Conquering New Horizons Together."

The 2021 convention included continuing legal education (CLE) credit opportunities alongside social events like a golf tournament and happy hour.

Ric Perez, Strategic Capital Senior Vice President and National Marketing Director, said, "Strategic Capital was proud to be back on the road sponsoring our good friends and business partners at the Colorado Trial Lawyers Association."

Strategic Capital supported the event and Colorado trial lawyers through two distinct sponsorships. First, they sponsored the Friday night happy hour at the convention. This social event featured a full bar, games, and a special beer tasting event - plus a root beer tasting for any underage attendees.

Beyond hosting this opportunity for attendees to network while their families relaxed, Strategic Capital also announced that they will be a Silver Sponsor at the 2nd Annual CTLA/Case Coalition Par 3 Classic, the Summer Sunset Bash. This golf tournament will be held on Friday, September 17, and will benefit Colorado Trial Lawyers Care (CTLC), which pools resources to help those in need.

CTLC is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization that provides rapid relief to individuals, families, and organizations experiencing hardship. That relief might come in the form of monetary aid, legal services, or basic necessities. The CTLC helps those affected by natural disasters, crime, and other challenging situations.

"We look forward to our continued support and are excited to be a Silver Sponsor at the 2nd Annual Summer Sunset Bash," Perez said of Strategic Capital's involvement in the upcoming CTLC fundraiser.

The Summer Sunset Bash begins at 3 p.m. at the Columbine Country Club Pool and Par 3 Complex in Littleton, Colorado. Attendees do not necessarily need to be golfers, as the event also gives individuals the option to choose to instead play tennis or attend the social event. The latter will feature food and drinks, music, lawn games, and a live and silent auction.

To participate in any portion of the Summer Sunset Bash, individuals must register in advance. Registration is available online at

Those unable to attend in person can participate in the silent auction online at Auction proceeds go to the Colorado Trial Lawyers Care fund.

Families Facing Food Insecurity Receive Over 27,000 Meals From Employees at CDF Labor Law

IRVINE, Calif. -- The stories are endless of jobs suddenly gone forever and families struggling to get by. As cities across the nation continue to deal with the economic fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, employees at CDF Labor Law LLP (CDF) got busy partnering with food banks and programs aimed to get food into the hands of hungry communities.

"There isn't anyone in our five offices who hasn't seen neighbors, friends and family's jobs disappear because of the pandemic, it's heartbreaking," says longtime employee Dorothy Rausa at CDF. "I know I speak on behalf of other employees at the firm when I say how appreciative I am of the firm's stalwart efforts in the communities in which we work and live to help those in dire need."

She adds, "My co-workers were eager to give, plus with our firm's donation it made this project more important, I love that we take action to help others-not just during the holidays-but all year long."

CDF participated in the 5th annual Food from The Bar program, a campaign driven by the Orange County legal community which raises awareness and provides critically needed meals to food-insecure children, families and seniors in Orange County. Though not the largest law firm, CDF alone, through employee donations and firm sponsorship, raised over $9,000, providing 27,000+ meals to those in need.

Hosted by the Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, which ran this year's program between June 1, 2021 - July 2, 2021, the legal community raised a record-breaking $117,661.38 which equates to 352,984 meals.

According to Firm Managing Partner, Marie DiSante, the mobilization of employees from all of its five offices throughout California was inspiring "It was an amazing outpouring of generosity. We may not be as large as other firms, but our employees have huge hearts. I couldn't be prouder," she says.

"I don't think anyone could have predicted how desperate the food need is this year," said Megan Hunker, Donor Relations Associate at Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County. "CDF's continued support, especially during a year like this has made a significant impact for Orange County children, families and seniors," she adds.

NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- NotaryCam®, a Stewart-owned company and a pioneering provider of remote online notarization and identity verification / authentication technology for real estate and legal transactions, today announced it has partnered with RUTH RUHL, P.C., a Texas-based law firm, to add security and automation to the firm's loss mitigation services through remote online notarization (RON).

Using NotaryCam's RON platform, RUTH RUHL, P.C., will provide its clients with a secure eSign and eNotary process that improves efficiency while, most importantly, reduces the risk of fraud.

"RON is readily available with loan originations, but the concept of RON for loss mitigation is now coming to fruition," Ruth Ruhl, founder and president of RUTH RUHL, P.C., said. "I want RUTH RUHL, P.C., to be ahead of the curve and able to service my clients in a proactive manner. Partnering with NotaryCam provides a solution to my clients' time and money; it will all be paperless."

"One of the great things about RON is that we're finding new ways to use the technology every day," said NotaryCam Division President Rick Triola.

"Two of the factors that made this partnership with NotaryCam so attractive is the security of the platform and how it verifies the borrower's identity," continued Ruhl. "In my opinion, reducing the risk of fraud is key to my client's comfort level. The audio and video of the notary session, in my mind, helps to alleviate that risk. With NotaryCam, the notary is properly trained and understands the importance of the accuracy of both the borrower's signature and the electronic notary. Rick and I have the same commitment to our clients - excellence and customer service."
