Recapping the Repeal of Outdated Legislation

A recent decision from the Maryland Court Of Appeals overruled the decision of lower courts in the consolidated cases of Blackstone v. Sharma, Shanahan v. Marvastian, O’Sullivan v. Altenburg, and Goldberg v. Neviaser.The court ruled that “the legislative intent and history of the statute did not intend to force registration on foreign statutory trusts and remanded the case to the Circuit Courts to be reinstated and handled there consistent with the holding of the Court of Appeals.”Kevin Hildebeidel, Esq., Regional Managing Attorney for Non-judicial and Quasi-judicial States for Stern & Eisenberg, hosted a webinar covering the recent ruling over the ruling, and the effects it held over the industry. With this win, certain restrictive license requirements were ruled inapplicable to the mortgage industry and trusts.According to the presentation, what was decided was that the debt collection license requirements of MCALA don’t apply to the mortgage industry or to foreign statutory trusts holding mortgages. This decision, however, did not address any other consumer protection statutes, such as the Maryland Consumer Debt Collection Act (MCDCA) or the Maryland Consumer Protection Act (MCPA).The discussion included the context of the decision in relation to its initial creation and following amendments, an analysis of the decision and how it affected operators, the impact of the court’s newest decision on the portfolios of those operating within the affected area, and forward-looking issues, such as “all mortgage investors, servicers, and trustees will still be subject to requirements of MDCA, MCPA, FDCPA and all other consumer protection statutes even under the main opinion.”Click here to access a recording of the webinar to learn more about the ruling, or to listen in to the live question and answer portion.

Hybrid pension approach helps avoid DC ‘cliff’, says 300 Club

first_imgHybrid pension funds must have a “balanced” governance structure in place to ensure no one group of beneficiaries is penalised, the latest paper by the 300 Club has said.David Villa, a member of the group of investment professionals seeking to improve the investment landscape, argued that the hybrid approach of blending defined benefit (DB) and defined contribution (DC) was preferable to “going off the defined contribution cliff”.Villa – CIO at the State of Wisconsin Investment Board (SWIB), which reformed to offer employees of the US state hybrid benefits – insisted governance was a crucial risk when determining pension outcomes.“Governance decisions are ultimately equivalent to a change in return and can contribute significantly to volatility of outcomes,” he argued. In his paper, ‘The Third Way: A hybrid model for pensions’, he claims that if the governance model is not designed properly, then one group of beneficiaries risks losing out at the expense of another.“Both the DB and DC models lack the countervailing force provided by risk sharing,” he writes. He argues that the model used by SWIB, which manages assets worth $91bn (€74.8bn), was easily copied by other providers by offering a minimum benefit guarantee and any gains made above the level split between sponsor and member.“The risk sharing aspects of this design have profound implications for the governance of the system,” he says. “Interests are not aligned in DB or DC structures. “In the hybrid structure, risk is shared, and the alignment of interest that results contributes to a virtuous cycle of governance.”Villa argues in favour of the benefits of any hybrid approach.“Society,” he writes, “would also be better off if we could avoid going off the defined contribution cliff, wherein financially unsophisticated individuals take on large risks that significantly change their wealth in retirement if they get it wrong.”last_img read more

Jerome Champagne to challenge Blatter at FIFA presidential election

first_imgLong-time FIFA incumbent Sepp Blatter will have at least one rival for next year’s presidential election as former senior FIFA executive Jerome Champagne confirmed on Monday he would contest it.The 56-year-old Frenchman, who worked closely with Blatter between 2002 and 2005 when he was deputy secretary-general, said on Twitter he had sent a letter to FIFA headquarters in Switzerland that he would be a candidate confirming his initial declaration in London back in January.Champagne had said at the time of the original declaration that he did not think he could beat 77-year-old Blatter, who has been in charge since 1998, if he ran but he had a chance if UEFA chief Michel Platini was a candidate.Since then, though, Blatter has declared himself as a candidate despite stating beforehand he would not stand again and Platini pulled back from the brink even though he declared in Brazil prior to the World Cup finals in June that he could no longer support Blatter.Champagne, a former diplomat who worked on France’s successful bid for the right to host the 1998 World Cup before joining FIFA as an international advisor, said he was delighted that a debate had begun about the future of FIFA and football and thought more candidates would throw their hat into the ring.”I have the honor of informing you that I have just written to the FIFA Ad-hoc Electoral Committee and its president, Mr. Domenico Scala, to confirm my intention to run for FIFA president,” said Champagne in a letter to football federations posted on his website. “This confirmation has of course been made in accordance with the current FIFA regulations and in line with the announcement of my candidature of 20 January 2014 in London, in the same location where The Football Association was founded in 1863, the first of the 209 FIFA member associations.”On a personal level, I am happy that the debate about the future of FIFA and football has finally begun with the prospect of various candidates.”First and foremost, debating about issues is a normal process in an institution based on democratic principles.”Then, this debate is particularly indispensable for football. We have to take clear and informed decisions on whether we want to continue with the current economic polarization, and the sporting imbalances it brings in its wake, or be willing to rebalance the game in our globalised twenty-first century.”Champagne, who is funding his own campaign, helped to organise Blatter’s victorious election campaign in 2002 and later worked as FIFA’s director of international relations before leaving the organisation in 2010. He has since worked as an independent football consultant, helping Kosovo to gain recognition from FIFA and working on a potential rapprochement between Israel and Palestine.The election itself takes place next May at the FIFA Congress.last_img read more

Clippers win sixth consecutive game, destroying the Orlando Magic 114-86

first_imgThe Clippers (13-5) led 31-23 after one quarter, 57-44 at halftime and 84-62 after three quarters. They have now won six consecutive games and eight of nine.Griffin led the Clippers with 21 points, J.J. Redick had 20 and Chris Paul 19. Griffin shot 9 of 16 from the field, Paul was 7 of 10 and Redick 7 of 11.DeAndre Jordan also had a fine game. He came through with eight points, 16 rebounds and three blocks. And Matt Barnes, the only starter to playing the fourth quarter, came through with 17 points.Tobias Harris led the Magic with 16 points and Victor Oladipo and Ben Gordon each scored 11.The starters — Paul, Griffin, Barnes, Jordan and Redick — shot a combined 62.7 percent (32 of 51). “The ball is going in the basket for us,” Rivers said. “When we looked at our analytics for the season, it said that we were shooting poorly against uncontested shots. Now we are making our uncontested shots. I think that we are getting better shots and making them.”Barnes, who shot 6 of 8, was the only starter to play in the fourth quarter. He came off as stoked about the turnaround of his team, which at one point was just 5-4 before they embarked on a seven-game road trip and won six.“I think there was so much pressure on us early and it just got to everybody,” he said. “Once we calmed down and realized that it is only December, we remembered that we know how to play this game and what we are capable of.“We know what kind of team we have, so if we just go out there and play, we are going to win.”Overall, the Clippers shot 53.8 percent from the field and held Orlando to 41.8 percent.“We were playing exactly how we should play,” Griffin said. “No matter if we are scoring or not, we are moving the ball. It never really sticks. Defensively, everybody is there for each other.”Vaughn bemoaned losing O’Quinn, but praised the Clippers.“It just put us another man down at that position,” he said of O’Quinn. “We didn’t have our starting center or our backup center. But (the Clippers) played extremely well.” It was so interesting that fans at Staples Center began doing the wave during a fourth quarter in which the Clippers led by as many as 31 points on their way to a 114-86 victory over the Magic before a sellout crowd of 19,060.The Clippers (13-5) led by as many as 15 points in the first quarter, but had that lead whittled down to just three at 38-35 when Orlando’s Kyle O’Quinn committed a flagrant 2 foul when he raked Griffin across the face hard as Griffin was going in for what figured to be a dunk try with 5:54 left in the second quarter.O’Quinn was ejected, Griffin made one of two free throws and the Clippers went on an 8-2 run to lead 46-37. Orlando (7-14) got back to within seven points a couple of times, but whatever look they had in the game seemed to be gone after the incident.Interestingly, Griffin didn’t think O’Quinn deserved a flagrant 2.“I didn’t really see much, I closed my eyes,” Griffin said, drawing laughter from reporters. “I got hit in the face. But, honestly, I didn’t think it was going to be a flagrant 2. I didn’t think there was anything vicious or anything like that. But I thought we responded well.” The Orlando Magic entered their game against the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday with a record of 7-13. But somehow, even without center Nikola Vucevic – their leading scorer and rebounder – they came within an eye lash of winning at high-flying Golden State on Tuesday, only to lose by a point on a 3-point basket by the Warriors’ Steph Curry with 2.2 seconds to play.Would the Magic — still without Vucevic because of back spasms — be down, or angry? Clippers coach Doc Rivers was hopeful it was the former, but …“You just don’t know,” he said. “They’re young, they’re resilient.”Jacque Vaughn, the Orlando head coach out of Muir High in Pasadena, said, “It’ll be interesting.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more

The power of one

first_imgAUBREY BRUCE Every year at the beginning of the season I rush into a phone booth, any phone booth and exit those cramped quarters as I leap skyward with the letters E.O. stamped proudly on my chest cape flapping in the wind as I fly through the sometimes cloud covered campaign better known as the Pittsburgh Pirates season. This year I was not just whistling Dixie as I passed the bone orchard at midnight, no boys and girls there is really is, as the great rock n’ roll icon Jerry Lee Lewis might say, “some shakin’ going on.”  When I traveled to Bradenton, Fla., to observe the Pirates wind down their “grapefruit league” campaign, I was silently optimistic about their chances even in light of their management and personnel teams’ decision to ship the Bucs’ young and talented reliever Josh Hanrahan off to “Beantown.” But uh, maybe just maybe they have found a new formula that “mad scientists” Clint Hurdle and Neil Huntington haven’t let us in on as of yet.  Now don’t go getting all “giddy” because as of Pirates 9-0 thrashing of the Cardinals last Sunday at Busch Stadium.  At that point the Pirates were only one game in front of the St. Louis Cardinals for first place in the National League Central Division. Oh, by the way, check and see how many World Series the Pirates have competed in or won in the last ten years, then check the record of the Cardinals during that same time period.  I really don’t think that the “Cards” are losing a whole lot of sleep worrying about the Pirates, especially since the Pirates have over 135 games left to play in the 2013 season. But hold up. If the Pirates win 15 out of 25 games the remainder of the season they are poised to win over ninety six games for the season. In 2012 the Cincinnati Reds won the NL Central Division with a 97-65 record. The team that finished second in the division was the St. Louis Cardinals with a 88-74 record.  In 2011, the Milwaukee Brewers won the division with a 96-66 record with the Cardinals finishing second with a 90-72 record.  In 2010, the Reds won the division with a 91-71 record, the “Cards finished 86-76.  In 2009, Cardinals 91-71 the Cubs were 83-78.  In 2008, the Cubs won the division 97-64 while the Brewers took home the consolation prize with a 90-72 record.  2007 was a bit closer as the Cubs again took won the NL Central “championship” with an 85-77 record with the Brewers breathing down their necks finishing the season 83-79. During that same period, the Pirates have hovered around or finished in last place in their division.  I am not too concerned about the Pirates play during pre-All Star break competition. It is their post All Star game finishes that worry me. My point is until the Pirates convince themselves that they can win, the competition will certainly not be convinced, nor will their opponents become apprehensive at the thought of facing the Pirates.  One of the elements that bodes well for the Bucs’ is the fact that players that dreaded coming here in the past now look forward to helping the team establish, restore and maintain a new baseball winning tradition in the “steel city.” While I was in Bradenton, I spoke with Jeff Locke after a rough outing against the Baltimore Orioles and although on that day his performance was less than stellar he still had this to say: “I think after I came over here since the trade [from the Braves] everything has been better from my conditioning to my routines, to my work ethic.  Maybe it was because I was younger over there. I definitely have matured more since I have been here. Everyone in this clubhouse expects the best from each other when we go out there.”   It appears as if the Pirates might remain competitive during the 2013 campaign, but the jury is still out. Why? Well because there are many unanswered questions regarding the long brutal haul of the baseball summer.  How much will the Pirates miss the strong, steady, deadly fastball of Josh Hanrahan during the hellish days of August and during the final stretch of September? Will the Pittsburgh offense complement the Pirates pitching to provide enough balance for the team to win 95 plus games? Trust me boys and girls, it is going to take over 95 games for the Pirates or any of their Central Division foes to win the division comfortably and have enough steam to do some damage in the MLB playoffs. See, when a team, has to eke out victories day after day, week after week, month after month, that team will not, and should not be viewed as true victors.  Most of the time that band of competitors will be looked upon as lucky scavengers with a penchant for relying on charms and spells Every individual athlete on the Pirates roster has to convince himself that he is a winner.  See boys’ and girls’ we are not entitled to anything because “champions are made not born.”Buc Bits: The Pirates took the NL Central lead for the first time since last July and reached 15 wins in April for the first time since 1992.Winning is contagious and so is good pitching.(Aubrey Bruce can be reached at: [email protected])last_img read more
