How can #COVIDgrants and #reliefprograms impact 2021 business taxes? Armine Alajian, a certified public accountant at the Alajian Group was quoted in NerdWallet to answer, specifically in the case of economic injury disaster loans.

“EIDL loans are pure loans paid in 30 years at 3.75% interest. This is not taxable because it's not income, it's a loan to pay back,” Alaijan stated. “The payments are not tax-deductible either.”

Will 'Real Housewives' star Jen Shah be able to keep TV footage out of her fraud trial? Legal experts weigh in

Former federal prosecutor Neama Rahmani, president of West Coast Trial Lawyers, spoke to Fox News to comment on 'Real Housewives' star #JenShah, who is facing multiple counts of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and conspiracy to commit money laundering. If convicted on all charges, the TV personality faces a maximum of 50 years in prison. Shah's legal team filed a motion requesting that clips from the Bravo series not be shown during court.
"To the extent that Shah makes statements on the ‘Real Housewives’ those can come in," Rahmani noted. "It doesn't matter that it was on a reality TV show or any TV show or it was given to Homeland Security Investigations' agents or some other third party. Those can come in. There's no exclusion because it was on TV."

Case Study: The Power of Accident-Reenactment Video in the Case of an Injured Fetus | Attorney at Law Magazine

Vahe Garabedian, co-founder of MotionLit Services, Inc., had his column featured in Attorney At Law Magazine revolving around the power of accident-reconstruction videos, specifically in a suit filed by a mother whose unborn child was injured when her car collided with a truck.
"What made her case so compelling – and what we at MotionLit and her attorney, Joseph Barrett, believe made the payout so great – was the graphic animation of the crash, from mapping out the intersection to depicting the impact of the car’s airbag exploding on the mother and 17-week-old fetus," Garabedian said.

All 3 Cops Who Watched George Floyd Get Murdered Were Just Found Guilty

Neama Rahmani, a former federal prosecutor and the current president of West Coast Trial Lawyers, told VICE News that the guilty verdicts in the federal case against the three former Minneapolis police officers who watched #DerekChauvin murder #GeorgeFloyd, Tou Thao, J. Alexander Kueng, and Thomas Lane, will have a tremendous impact on if the state trial, which is currently scheduled for June, against the three men will move forward at all.

“Sentences in federal court tend to be longer," Rahmani said. “The question for state prosecutors is, is it worth retrying all of them in state court, and if so what would be the purpose when all of the evidence is essentially the same.”

California murder victim’s family appalled by Gascón push to drop killer’s death sentence

LA County District Attorney #GeorgeGascón wants a judge to vacate the death sentence of Scott Forrest Collins, who robbed and shot a 41-year-old father of three in January 1992.
According to Neama Rahmani, president of West Coast Trial Lawyers and former federal prosecutor, the request for resentencing serves to traumatize the victim’s family without having any practical effect because #California declared a moratorium on the death penalty and hasn’t carried out an execution in 15 years. Rahmani was featured in Fox News and Yahoo News.

Legal Experts Share Compelling Theory Behind Kanye West's Latest Legal Move Against Kim Kardashian

#KimKardashian filed a petition in December 2021 to terminate her and #Ye's marital status. But the rapper has filed an opposition and continues a tirade of incessant online #harassment.

Trial attorney Christa Ramey, of Ramey Law PC, told Nicki Swift that #Meta, the company that owns #Instagram, has the capacity to ban Ye on the platform for violating their community guidelines. However, they are "not obligated to do so." Furthermore, "with the company's immunity under Section 230 of the U.S. Communications Decency Act, they don't have any liability that might follow a failure to act."

"Legal tools are not all the same and business owners who use them incorrectly or who fail to do their due diligence beforehand could find themselves in a world of hurt," Homampour said. "From my years as a lawyer, I’ve learned that no two individuals or businesses are exactly alike, and there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to setting up and running a business.

Overpaid unemployment benefits? You may not have to pay it back

Hundreds of thousands of people have been notified that they’ve been overpaid in unemployment. Ron Zambrano, employment litigation chair at West Coast Trial Lawyers, was quoted in The Sun to give his insight on what to do if you receive an overpayment notice from the US Department of Labor.

"If you have a basis to contest the determination of overpayment, you can contest the decision, which requires a timely appeal of the decision or conclusion of overpayment," he said. "That leads to a hearing with an administrative law judge at the local office."

Jury Finds Ahmaud Arbery Killers Guilty of Federal Hate Crimes

After a jury found Ahmaud Arbery's killers guilty of federal hate crimes, former federal prosecutor and current president of West Coast Trial Lawyers, Neama Rahmani, gave his reaction to The Wall Street Journal.

“There is a significant percentage of our population that . . .doubts that our system of justice is colorblind,” he said. “This type of verdict sends a message that no one is above the law, hate-crimes laws will be enforced and the feds will step in.”

James DeSimone on Court TV analyzing jury selection in the Derek Chauvin Murder of George Floyd trial. Just because someone supports law enforcement doesn’t mean they can’t find Chauvin guilty of murder when he placed a knee on George Floyd’s neck when he was handcuffed and not going anywhere. But where a juror expresses no sympathy for George Floyd and is already making excuses for the cops, he has got to go. #vjdlaw #justice #blacklivesmatter #commonsense #comesatime #mambamentality #civilrightslawyer #courtroometiquette #love #loveislove #blmla #blacklivesmatterlosangeles #civilrightsattorney #aoc #berniesanders #democracy #peace #vote #police #stoppolicebrutality #blacklivesmattersouthpasadena #policebrutality #attorneysofinstagram #justiceforgeorgefloyd #attorneyatlawmagazine Newsroom Public Relations CourtTv
