*President Donald Trump wants former White House aide Omarosa Manigault Newman to pay for a million dollar ad campaign as a “corrective” measure for the harsh comments she has made about her former boss.  

The recommendation was offered from an expert witness in documents submitted as part of an ongoing arbitration case over Manigault Newman’s 2018 book “Unhinged” and associated interviews.

Here’s more from MSN:

The witness, Eric W. Rose, a crisis management expert, detailed a lengthy advertising proposal across several platforms that would cost just over $846,000. He did not suggest a time frame by which the ad campaign would need to take place. But the proposal mentions several times the impressions Ms. Manigault Newman’s comments could have left with “voters,” and was filed a few weeks before the election.

“It would be my recommendation that Ms. Manigault Newman pays for the corrective ads/corrective statements outlined above to counteract the long-term adverse effects of information that appeared as a result of Ms. Manigault Newman violating her confidentiality agreement,” Rose wrote. He concluded: “If corrective ads are not placed, voters may continue to hold beliefs about the president as a result of Ms. Manigault Newman’s statements.”

Omarosa’s lawyer, John Phillips, called Rose’s document a form of “weaponized litigation.”

“Friday, we found out their bullets are commercials they want Omarosa to go do,” he said. “This isn’t free speech. It’s speech with a gun to your head.”

Trump’s lawyers filed an arbitration case against Manigault Newman after the release of her tell-all book. They accuse her of violating a nondisclosure agreement signed when the Trump campaign hired her in 2016.  In her book she describes the president as a racist and misogynist. 

Rose’s report suggests Manigault Newman should “provide a paid media recommendation with the goal of reaching audiences reached by negative statements disseminated by Ms. Manigault Newman.”

Its “targeted audiences” is listed as existing in 15 “select states” — all electoral battle grounds, including Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Ohio, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

“Media would be flighted across all channels/publishers,” Rose wrote. “Timing is to be determined.”

He added, “A person who abides by confidentiality agreements when writing a book and subsequently making media appearances to promote the book would never be in a position to be forced to run corrective advertising. It is my opinion that the only effective remedy would be a corrective advertising campaign that would be financed by Ms. Manigault Newman.”

The arbitration case has been going on since 2018, when Omorosa was booted from the White House.

*Louisville Police Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly has filed a lawsuit against the boyfriend of Breonna Taylor for “battery, assault, and distress.”

Mattingly, one of the officers involved in Taylor’s killing, filed the suit on Thursday, claiming he is entitled to damages because Kenneth Walker allegedly shot him in the leg during a botched raid on Taylor’s home by law enforcement on March 13, Complex reports.

Mattingly, alongside Brett Hankison and Myles Cosgrove, fired 32 rounds into Taylor’s apartment, and he now claims that he experienced “severe trauma, mental anguish and emotional distress” on the night that Taylor was killed, People reports.

“Walker’s conduct in shooting Mattingly is outrageous, intolerable and offends all accepted standards of decency and morality,” the lawsuit reads.

On the night of the shooting, the three undercover officers conducted an improper raid when they burst in Taylor’s home and fired at least 22 times, with bullets going into neighboring apartments.

Walker, a licensed gun owner, shot at officers when they attempted to enter without announcing themselves. He was not injured in the incident, but was arrested and charged with first-degree assault and attempted murder for allegedly striking a police officer when he fired one shot out of Taylor’s apartment. 

The charges were ultimately dropped and now Walker is seeking immunity against his actions under Kentucky’s “stand your ground” law, ABC News reports. 

Walker told Gayle King in a recent interview “I’m a million percent sure that nobody identified themselves,” he said of the police on that tragic night. 

He also explained to King that he and Taylor heard knocking and asked “several times” who was at her apartment door. “And there was no response. So the next thing I know the door is flying open,” he told King.

“It was dead silent in the house,” he said. “And it was 12, 1 at night, or whatever time. So it was—it’s always quiet. We live in a quiet place. So if somebody was on the other side of the door saying anything, we would hear them.”

Walker said that’s what prompted him to open fire, and insists he would not have shot at police officers. 

“That’s why I grabbed the gun. Didn’t have a clue,” Walker said. “I mean, if it was the police at the door, and they just said, ‘We’re the police,’ me or Breonna didn’t have a reason at all not to open the door to see what they wanted.”

Walker’s attorney told CBS News that his client is “protected by law under KRS 503.085 and is immune from both criminal prosecution and civil liability as he was acting in self defense in his home.”

California Paralysis Cases Where Injury Attorneys Won Millions in Settlements

Published

*Accidents that cause paralysis can often be avoided if the right prevention is taking. Sadly, it often isn’t and that is why big companies have to pay up big amounts of money to victims.

Millions of dollars are sometimes paid out to these victims and their families to compensate for their accidents. Naturally, the money cannot make up for their loss but it will go towards living more comfortable lives.

Here are three shocking cases in California where a law firm, paired with the paralyzed, resulted in massive settlements from the paralysis injury.

1. Cyclist Gets $20 Million Lawsuit Settlement

A paralysis injury attorney group have worked together to see that justice is served in the case of a cyclist who was injured on his way to work.

Richard L. Duquette of the Law Firm of Richard L. Duquette along with Deborah Chang, John Shaller and Tom Schultz of Panish Shea & Boyle LLP managed to get a lawsuit settlement of $20 million.

Although this may seem like a ridiculous amount of money, the case warrants such a big number.

Sheng Du is a 52-year-old avid San Diego cyclist and Software Architectural Manager at Verizon who will never again ride his bicycle.

On 8 December 2017, he was heading to his workplace when his bicycle went into an unattended and unsafe trench. As a result, Mr Du flipped over his handlebars and crashed into the ground. He was seriously injured and suffered damage to his spinal cord.

Because of the severity of his injury, he was left quadriplegic and will have to receive medical care for the rest of his life. He had loved cycling since he was only 10 years old. It was something he did to stay fit and do his part in protecting the environment.

The open construction trench was a hazard and should never have even been an issue. The San Diego City and the State of California had promised to increase biking safety.

The trench was two feet wide and a foot deep and stretched across the bicycle lane. Because of the lack of warnings and the position of the sun, Mr Du could not see the gaping hole before getting injured.

Mr Du and his wife decided that they would take KTA Construction and Harris & Associates, Inc. as well as the City of San Diego to court.

They felt that the way the injury happened could have been avoided and with the help of the group of attorneys, they received a form of justice.

The settlement that was reached saw Harris & Associates, Inc. pay out $14 250 000, the City of San Diego pay $1 500 000 and KTA Construction pay $4 250 000.

2. Paralysis Accident Lawyer Wins California Man $2.5 Million Lawsuit Settlement

When a young man in California was severely injured by police officers, a paralysis attorney helped him win a lawsuit settlement that would make his life a little bit easier.

The attorney was able to get his client a settlement of $2.5 million, which is assumed would go towards his medical care.

Because of his serious injuries, Adonis Serna will not be able to live a normal life. He will have to be taken care of and his medical bills will not be cheap.

In Woodlake in 2017, the police had shot at Serna five times in the back and it resulted in his paralysation.

The lawsuit that ensued accused the three detectives of battery negligence, excessive force and assault. The officers are from Woodlake, Exeter and Tulare County.

The young man’s attorney pointed out that the charges against his client would be dismissed. The charges were possession of a stolen vehicle and assault with a deadly weapon on police officers.

However, Serna will be serving probation for other misdemeanour charges.

3. Settlement of $37 Million For Paralyzed Contractor

The California Department of Transportation has to pay out a whopping $37 million [source] after a construction worker was injured during work.

Kyle Anderson was working on Highway 101, Eureka, when the tragic accident that changed his life forever happened.

Kyle was only 20 years old at the time.

He was in a trench, crouching, when a passing driver drove onto the shoulder and hit him.

As a result of the accident, Kyle was left quadriplegic. He also has ‘locked-in’ syndrome which means he is conscious but cannot communicate or move.

The legal team from the Reiner, Slaughter and Frankel law firm was able to win Kyle the settlement of $37 million. This came after they could convince the jury that the California Department of Transportation was at fault.

It was found that the department created a dangerous environment by denying a request to close a lane. They also removed a backhoe that was acting as a barrier vehicle and changed a work light tower, causing a blinding light to basically blind drivers.

The jury initially found that the department must pay the Anderson family $56.6 million. However, the decision was appealed against and it was decided by another jury that the agency must pay the family $37 million.

The department stated afterwards that it only accepts goals of zero similar incidents. It is hoped that both the department and the Anderson family will find closure after the now-settled court case.

Some of the money that was awarded to the family will go towards Kyle’s lifetime medical care. He needs to be taken care of round-the-clock and doctors estimated the cost of this will be about $18 million.

This cost includes the use of high-tech equipment that will make it possible for Kyle to communicate with his family. He will be looking at images on a computer screen to ‘talk’.

These cases show that a good paralysis lawyer of California will be able to win the victims of such misfortune some peace of mind. Of course, no amount of money can give them their lives back, but at least they can live in relevant comfort and be assured that their medical bills won’t be a burden on their families.

Timesha Beauchamp

*The family of the Detroit woman with cerebral palsy who was mistakenly declared dead at a funeral home in August has filed a lawsuit against the first responders on the scene

According to PEOPLE, Beauchamp’s family has sued the Southfield EMS Paramedics for $50 million for declaring her dead when she was “very much alive,” family attorney Geoffrey Fieger said in a statement.

“All the telemetry evidence shows that Timesha was alive when EMS declared her dead,” he said in a statement. “As a result of being declared dead, she was left without oxygen for 4 hours, suffering severe hypoxic brain damage.”

The four paramedics involved have had their licenses suspended, Fieger said.

“All of this could have been avoided, had more care been taken,” he added.

We previously reported, Beauchamp, 20, died at Detroit’s Children’s Hospital on Sunday of massive brain damage. Her death comes two months after she was discovered alive at a Detroit funeral home.

“This is the second time our beloved Timesha has been pronounced dead, but this time she isn’t coming back,” the family said in a statement

Beauchamp had a heart attack at her home in August and was found unresponsive when paramedics with Southfield Fire Department arrived. They performed CPR and failed to revive her after performing life saving procedures for 30 minutes, according to CBS.  She was declared dead after an ER physician reviewed her medical data. Her body was released directly to the family and Beauchamp was transported to James H Cole Home for Funerals in Detroit. 

Over an hour later, staffers saw she was alive and called paramedics, who rushed her to the hospital.  

“They would have begun draining her blood to be very, very frank about it,” the family’s lawyer Geoffrey Fieger told WXYZ-TV. “The funeral home unzipping the body bag – literally – that’s what happened to Timesha, and seeing her alive with her eyes open.” 

“After receiving clearance from the Oakland County Medical Examiner’s office she was transported to our funeral home,” the funeral home said in a statement to PEOPLE. “Upon her arrival at the funeral home, our staff confirmed she was breathing and called EMS.”

The fire department claims they followed “protocols and procedures” when handling Beauchamp.
