President's Message

--------------------“I wouldn’t have had it any other way. But there are times when suddenly ------------------
--------------------you realize you’re nearer the end than the beginning. And you wonder, --------------------
--------------------you ask yourself, what the sum total of your life represents. What -------------------
--------------------difference your being there at any time made to anything? Hardly made -------------------
--------------------any difference at all, really, particularly in comparison with other mens’ -------------
--------------------careers. I don’t know whether that kind of thinking is very healthy, but -----------------
--------------------I must admit I’ve had some thoughts on those lines from time to time.”

---------------------Col. Nicholson (Alec. Guinness)
--------------------- Bridge on the River Kwai
 
At this moment, I feel sort of like Col. Nicholson, thinking about being closer to the end of my career, rather than the beginning, wondering whether I’ve made any difference, but admiring the bridge we’ve built this year from the old MBA to our future MBA. This has been an exciting year of growth and transition, and I am proud to have been a part of these changes. I hope you have noticed positive changes and maybe experienced something that helped you in either your professional career or personal life. 

And like Col. Nicholson, I am very thankful for all the hard work everyone put into building this bridge – our executive board, our working committees and practice sections, our volunteer lawyer programs, the 150 th celebration committee, and especially Ann and Tammy for their hard work and dedication. Thank you everyone who has been involved in making this a successful and meaningful year!

Thank you once again for allowing me to serve as your President. At the December 13 th monthly meeting of our Bar Association, we will celebrate, have some holiday cheer, and I will hand over command to Skip Finkbohner, who I am confident will do an excellent job. I just have one request – please don’t blow up the bridge! --

Ann's Article
What a great year 2019 has been! The Mobile Bar Association has had a productive year full of accomplishments. To name a few, your MBA has:
  • Celebrated its 150th Anniversary.
  • Held a successful Law Day event and provided legal assistance to the community through our Help Line.
  • Partnered with the Alabama State Bar Solo and Small Firm Section to offer a MCLE seminar on Probate Practice. (This seminar was held statewide, and the MBA had the largest attendance).
  • Provided 60 hours of MCLE courses.
  • Offered new programming through the Mentoring Committee, including Coffee with the Court, which has continued to grow.
  • Partnered with Alabama 200 in facilitating the Alabama Justice Exhibit: The Cases and Faces that Changed a Nation.
  • Redesiged our website which will roll out on December 30, 2019.

These accomplishments did not happen overnight. They are due to the hard work and vision of the Executive Committee and YOUR passion to make our Association successful. Hats off to YOU! 

We have a few more events remaining in December to put on your calendar. Bench and Bar is slated for Friday, December 6th at the Marriott’s Grand Hotel in Point Clear. Also, on Friday, December 13, we will have our Holiday Membership Luncheon and our last MCLE seminar for the year, a Criminal Law Update. Links to register to the events are included in the Bar Bulletin.

Have a safe and happy holiday season.
Onward,

YOUNG LAWYERS
By Weathers Bolt, President
The Young Lawyers would like to thank Hand Arendall Harrison Sale for hosting our November meeting. The meeting was a great one, and we certainly appreciate their continued support. We will not have a meeting in December.
 
On a personal note, I would like to thank those of you who helped make it a great year, particularly our officers, executive committee members, and all who participated in our meetings and fundraisers. With your help, we continued our mission to provide support and networking opportunities for the young(er) lawyers in the Mobile Bar Association. Along the way, we purchased uniforms and school supplies for students at Florence Howard Elementary, joined the kids of St. Mary’s Home for a morning of fun and games, and provided seed money for the Boys and Girls Club of South Alabama to start new clubs at five area schools. Next year I will pass the gavel to the capable hands of Catherine Spann as President and Blake Richardson as Vice President. I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve as President this year and cannot wait to see what the future holds for the Mobile Young Lawyers.

For updates and additional information, please follow us on Facebook ( Mobile Bar Association Young Lawyers https://www.facebook.com/groups/97086876767/) and Instagram ( @Mobile_Young_Lawyers). We will also continue to send e-mails. If you are not receiving Young Lawyers e-mails and would like to, please e-mail me ( wbolt@starneslaw.com), Vice President Catherine Spann ( CSpann@handarendall.com), or Treasurer Blake Richardson.

In a case of seeming first impression, the Court of Civil Appeals in Forbes v. Brawley, No. 2180399 (Ala. Civ. App., October 18, 2019), relying on Fogarty v. Southworth, 953 So. 2d 1225 (Ala. 2006), held that when multiple grounds had been advanced by the defendant in support of his motion to dismiss, which had been granted in an order that did not set forth the specific reasons, the order had to be affirmed when the plaintiff did not address in its brief on appeal each of the various grounds asserted by the defendant before the trial court. In effect, the Court concluded that the trial court’s dismissal order could have been based on one of the grounds that was not briefed and, thus, the appellant waived any argument as to those grounds.

In J.C.C. v. Madison County Department of Human Services, No. 2180630 (Ala. Civ. App., October 4, 2019), the Court of Civil Appeals dismissed an appeal, even though the notice of appeal was timely filed electronically, because the paper copy of the notice was not filed until after the time for appeal had expired.

In a case of first impression, the Supreme Court in Courtyard Manor Homeowner’s Association, Inc. v. City of Pelham, No. 1180683 (Ala., October 18, 2019), held that Section 25 of the Alabama Constitution, which grants each citizen the right to petition government for a redress of grievances, did not require that a municipality respond to a petition to de-annex an area from the municipality. Thus, the complaint seeking court review of the municipality’s failure to consider the petition was dismissed for failure to state a claim.

In another case of first impression, the Supreme Court in Forest Laboratories, LLC, v. Feheley, No. 1180387 (Ala., October 25, 2019), held that Ala. Code § 6-5-530, passed by the Alabama legislature shortly after the Court’s decision was announced in Wyeth, Inc. v. Weeks, 159 So. 3d 649 (Ala. 2014), was intended to abrogate that decision. Accordingly, the Supreme Court concluded that under the plain language of § 6-5-530, a drug manufacturer could not be held liable for injuries caused by a product it did not manufacture or for the alleged deficiencies of a drug that it had not manufactured, even though that drug was the generic version of a drug that the defendant had in fact manufactured.

Heavily relying on the standards justifying the dismissal of a lawsuit for failure to state a claim, the Court of Civil Appeals in Swain v. AIG Claims, Inc., No. 2180336 (Ala. Civ. App., October 18, 2019), held that when the plaintiff had alleged tort claims arising out of the manner in which the defendant handled plaintiff’s claims in a worker’s compensation matter, it could not be said that plaintiff could prove no set of facts under which a tort recovery might be possible, notwithstanding the general prohibition of tort claims arising out of compensable injuries.

In another case of first impression, the Supreme Court in Norwood v. Barclay, No. 1180281 (Ala., October 18, 2019), held that where a will had left all of the decedent’s property to her sister and had generically “disinherited” any other persons, the anti-lapse provision of Ala. Code § 43-8-224 would still apply to allow the predeceased sister’s children to receive the property under the will. The Court seemed to indicate that the decedent could have prohibited application of the anti-lapse statute by specific language, but that the language of this will was insufficient for that purpose.

SAVLP is offering new ways to be involved in 2020!

We are seeking your support to help us serve our low-income friends and neighbors. On the second Thursday of each month from 1-3 p.m., SAVLP hosts a civil legal advice clinic at the Mobile County Courthouse. We are asking your firm, organization, or legal group to commit to volunteering at the clinic. All you need to do to help is select a month in 2020 and commit to having at least 5 attorneys from your group, or that you provide limited legal advice to clients at the clinic. There is never an expectation that you continue to represent the client after the clinic. Just two hours of your time offering brief legal assistance can change a client’s entire legal situation.

Our goal for each clinic is to have at least five attorneys from various practice areas such as probate, real property, torts, contracts, family law, and collections. These tend to be the top issues we see at the clinic. SAVLP can assist you in recruiting attorneys from other practice areas if necessary. The goal of this sponsorship is so we can make sure that each clinic is appropriately staffed, and to get new volunteers involved in our program.

We have had as many at 25 clients attending clinics recently, and unfortunately have not been able to assist all of those needing help due to limited volunteer involvement. Clients do not need an appointment to attend the clinic, and we do our best to make sure that every client that shows up receives some assistance.

In addition to helping our community, as a clinic sponsor SAVLP will feature your firm’s involvement on our Facebook page, monthly email, and in our MBA Bar Bulletin article. You will also get at least two (2) hours of volunteer hours for each attendee, and this can be included in the attorney’s time for CLE credit for pro bono service. Remember, every six (6) hours you volunteer is one hour of CLE!

If you are interested in a sponsorship, please call me at 433-6693 or email me at drulauren@savlp.org .

For the past few weeks, SAVLP has offered a weekly help desk for pro se litigants in District Court at the Mobile County Courthouse on Monday afternoons. Clients are offered brief assistance with forms or procedure. We have had good feedback from the clerks and clients and are seeking to make this a permanent service for our community. If you are interested in volunteering at the Pro Se Help Desk please call at 433-6693 or email at drulauren@savlp.org .

We will also continue to offer a legal advice clinic every other month at Prodisee Pantry. In 2020 we plan to offer several Wills for Heroes clinics and arrange speakers for our community partners.

We share information monthly with our volunteers through email. Call 433-6693 or email drulauren@savlp.org to sign up.

If you have not made a contribution to SAVLP this year, please consider doing so. Your contributions continue to allow us to serve neighbors in need. Contributions can be made via check or on our website at www.SAVLP.org/donate .

ARCHIVES AND HISTORY
By Mitchell Lattof, Sr., Chair

This is the last installment of the Archives & History Committee Series, which has been a special column this year in celebration of the 150 th Anniversary of the MBA. This is a discussion of the video interviews the Committee has done over the past six years and which the MBA Executive Committee has placed on a special YouTube playlist accessible on its website. In 2018, our Committee had the privilege of interviewing Judge Edward McDermott, a retired Mobile County Circuit Court Judge, who was 79 years old and had been an attorney and a judge for a total of more than 50 years. The interview was conducted by Committee member Mary Margaret Bailey. She brought out that Judge Edward McDermott’s father and older brother had both served as Mobile County Circuit Court judges. She also found documentation and questioned him about his great grandfather, also named Edward McDermott, who was Chief Justice of the Louisiana Supreme Court from 1880 to 1892. His testimony was very informative and often entertaining.

Judge McDermott told a story about the first case he tried as a young attorney and member of the law firm of Ronald Slepian, Esq. Slepian asked him to file a suit for $35.00 on behalf of Slepian’s maid who had paid $35.00 to a beautician and was very unhappy with the results. He filed the suit in the Mobile County Inferior Civil Court which, at that time, had a jurisdiction of $100.00 and did not require court costs. He went to Court and an older attorney, Thomas Galloway, Sr., approached him and asked him if he was Edward McDermott and told him he wanted to discuss the matter with him. They found a place where they could talk, and Tom Galloway asked him if he had $15.00 with him. He replied affirmative and Tom Galloway then handed him $20.00 and said please give your client the $35.00 and tell her she won the case and that neither of them could afford to spend more time on the case. He said he reluctantly complied, but he still remembers that his first case cost him $15.00.

Judge Edward McDermott was elected as a Mobile County Circuit Judge in 1983 and served until 2001. He has continued to serve as a Special Mobile County Circuit Judge since 2001 whenever needed. In 2010, Judge McDermott was awarded the Howell T. Heflin Honor and Integrity Award presented to him by the Mobile and Baldwin County Bar Associations. He presently also serves as a Member of the American Legion 250 Honor Guard and Member of the Board of Directors of the Alabama State Veterans Cemetery at Spanish Fort.

I believe the interview of Judge Edward McDermott by our Committee will be of great interest to the members of the Mobile Bar Association.
LAWYERS IN RECOVERY

Lawyers in Recovery (“LIR”) is a fellowship of lawyers who share their experience, strength and hope with each other to hopefully solve their common problems and help others to recover from alcoholism, addiction, depression or similar conditions. LIR meetings are designed to last one hour and start promptly at 5:30 p.m. on the first and third Thursdays of every month at 205 Church Street in Mobile. LIR meetings are modeled on the steps and traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous and participants pledge and place substantial emphasis on anonymity. If anyone needs additional information on LIR Meetings, they can anonymously call the Mobile Bar Association office for referral to a LIR Member who will also keep all communications confidential.
