PERRY MASON, ATTORNEY AT LAW , and SHERIFF ANDY TAYLOR –I miss them. I long for the days when
the role models we emulated were unfailingly professional, courteous, civil, and kind. But it
seems to me that our society has devolved into “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” and our
legal profession into a grand finale of “Survivor.” As lawyers, we are called to a higher level of
civility than this. We are to uphold the legal system and all of its components including the
judiciary and other lawyers. Doing so can be a challenge for me, certainly, and I expect for most
of us; however, we are required to rise above our baser instincts.
There is a tension between the duty to be a zealous advocate and the duty to be civil. Civility
does not mean we must agree, only that we show respect for the position of the other party. For
example, instead of, “that is an utterly baseless legal position and a waste of paper,” consider, “if
you have any legal authority for that position I shall promptly review it.” The line between
zealous advocacy and civility is difficult to define and will vary with each fact situation. To
further complicate matters, many clients believe that they have the power to dictate their
lawyer’s conduct. It is incumbent upon the lawyer to educate the client about the lawyer’s role:
an attorney is more than a “hired gun.” Ethical rules require a lawyer to refuse a client’s request
to engage in incivility or ethically questionable conduct.
Professionalism, courtesy, civility and kindness are lofty goals in the daily practice of law.
Nonetheless, I am renewing my resolve to aspire to those goals and to be more like PERRY MASON
and SHERIFF TAYLOR
PROGRAM
This month’s program will be
GUEST SPEAKER: DANNY SHERIDAN,
SPORTS PROGNOSTICATOR
August 17, 2018 - 11:45 a.m. - The Admiral Hotel, Mobile, Alabama
DANNY will give us his annual college football predictions (last year he predicted Alabama to win the national championship and said Auburn would have 3 or 4 loses (they lost 4). He said DOUG JONES would win the Senate seat ONLY if ROY MOORE beat LUTHER STRANGE (right again!).
This year, he'll give us his Alabama political predictions for November (Gov, Lt Gov and Attorney General) plus his football predictions and his take on sports betting being legalized by the U.S. SUPREME COURT on May 14th for any state that wants it. Also, his take on the lottery and casinos for Alabama.
Another “fun evening” at MOE's last week! Hope you didn’t miss it. And coming up this month
is another occasion that is a must – DANNY SHERIDAN! Danny will be speaking to us for the
32nd year in a row about his prognostications, be it sports, politics (and there is enough politics to
go around) and whatever else comes to his mind! It is always a great luncheon, one you don’t
want to miss.

Kudos to the MBA 50 year lawyers who were recognized at the ASB Annual Meeting in San Destin: Gary Paul Alidor, Sr.; James Calvin Clay; J. Cecil Gardner; Ian F. Gaston; Geary A. Gaston; Joseph A. Gonzales; Chase Robert Laurendine; Joe Hollis Little, Jr., and John Douglas Richardson.

Just a reminder that there is CLE CALENDAR on the MBA website – check it out and calendar the
ones you want (need) to attend. JUDGES HONEYCUTT AND SHERMAN have scheduled a meeting (2.0
hrs. MCLE credits are approved) for everyone who practices DOMESTIC RELATIONS LAW in their
courtrooms.

THE PORCH
A young blond girl in her late teens, wanting to earn some extra money for the summer, decided
to hire herself out as a "handy woman" and started canvassing a nearby well-to-do neighborhood.
She went to the front door of the first house and asked the owner if he had any odd jobs for her to
do. "Well, I guess I could use somebody to paint the porch" he said. "How much will you charge
me?" Delighted, the girl quickly responded, "How about $50?"
The man agreed and told her that the paint and brushes and everything she would need were in
the garage.
The man's wife, hearing the conversation, said to her husband, "Does she realize that our porch
goes ALL the way around the house?"
That's a bit cynical, isn't it?" he responded.
The wife replied, "You're right. I guess I'm starting to believe all those dumb blonde jokes."
A few hours later the blonde came to the door to collect her money.
"You're finished already??" the startled husband asked. "Yes," the blonde replied, "and I even
had paint left over so I gave it two coats."
Impressed, the man reached into his pocket for the $50 and handed it to her along with a $10 tip.
"Thank you," the blonde said, "And, by the way, it's not a Porch, it's a Lexus."

Lawyers work hard. We are busy people. Notwithstanding our hectic schedules, we collectively make a difference. I always enjoy the following story, author unknown, and although it has been around a long time, it is worth re-visiting:

Once upon a time, there was an old man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach every morning before he began his work. Early one morning, he was walking along the shore after a big storm had passed and he found the vast beach littered with starfish as far as the eye could see, stretching in both directions.
Off in the distance, the old man noticed a small boy approaching. As the boy walked, he paused every so often and as he grew closer, the old man could see that he was occasionally bending down to pick up an object and throw it into the sea. The boy came closer still and the man called out, “Good morning, may I ask what you are doing?”
The young boy paused, looked up, and replied “throwing starfish into the ocean because they cannot return to the sea by themselves. When the sun gets high, they will die unless I throw them back into the water.”
The old man replied, “but there must be tens of thousands of starfish on this beach. I am afraid that you won’t really be able to make much of a difference.”
The boy bent down, picked up yet another starfish and threw it as far as he could into the ocean. Then he turned, smiled and said, “I made a difference to that one.”

The moral of the story, at least from my perspective, is that although we sometimes feel overwhelmed and helpless to effect a change in a given situation, every action, however insignificant it may seem at the time, makes a difference.
The members of the Bar Association make a difference every day in the lives of those whom we serve. I am honored to be a relatively new member of the legal community.
MARK YOUR CALENDARS: August lunch meeting at 11:45 on Tuesday, August 14, 2018 at Café del Rio on the Causeway. We will feature DOROTHY POWELL as our speaker, who is an attorney in Birmingham and also a stylist with WORTH NEW YORK clothing.

DIVERSITY & INCLUSION COMMITTEE

During months that the DIVERSITY & INCLUSION COMMITTEE doesn't have anything on the calendar to celebrate, the Committee has decided to incorporate a "Did You Know?" column. This column will address different Diversity & Inclusion tidbits that may be interesting. It is our goal to share facts that may even be unique to our own community. To get everyone in the MBA involved, the Committee wants to encourage our bar members to send any fun facts for consideration into this column. They may send this to the COMMITTEE CHAIR, SUNTREASE WILLIAMS-MAYNARD , at  s.williams08@yahoo.com .

Hearings Scheduled Before the Mobile County Personnel Board  “It has been and will continue to be the practice of the Mobile County Personnel Board (MCPB) to schedule hearings at the earliest possible date following the filing of a disciplinary appeal, particularly where the employee has been dismissed from his employment. In the past, the MCPB has scheduled only one hearing per setting, either on a Tuesday or a Thursday. In an effort to create a more efficient use of time and resources and to speed up the disposition of matters that can be readily agreed upon or settled, the MCPB will begin setting several cases for hearing per setting.
When a hearing has been set, the parties should immediately determine whether a conflict or other reason exists which would prevent the appeal from being heard at the scheduled date and time. If a conflict or other cause exists, the party must notify the Personnel Director of the conflict in writing within 14 days of receiving the hearing notice to request a reset date. Any continuances sought more than 14 days from the date of the notice will be denied, except for good cause shown to prevent manifest justice.”

In an apparent case of first impression, the Supreme Court in Richardson v. Relf, No. 1170559 (Ala., May 4, 2018), held that for a taxpayer to have standing to contest a public transaction, the transaction either had to specifically affect the taxpayer or the public fund had to have lost money. Given that the proposed sale of school property in this case would bring money into the public treasury rather than take money out, the Court held that there was no taxpayer standing to challenge the sale.

In Ex Parte Sears Roebuck & Co., No. 2170632 (Ala. Civ. App., May 11, 2018), the Court of Civil Appeals followed prior precedent in holding that the trial court could not order medical care provided in a workers’ compensation action in which the issue of compensability was contested without conducting an evidentiary hearing.

In G.L.C. v. C.E.C. III, No. 2160900 (Ala. Civ. App., May 25, 2018), the Court of Civil Appeals held that even though the appellant had taken steps to file a notice of appeal on the last day of the appeals period, the notice was in fact not “filed” with the trial court until the day after the appeals period had expired. Thus, the appeal was due to be dismissed.

OPPORTUNITES
TO GET INVOLVED
SAVLP holds limited legal advice clinics at different locations in Baldwin, Clarke, Mobile and Washington Counties. Attorneys volunteer a few hours of their time to help low income clients fill out paperwork, give advice about procedure, appropriate filings, and more. The lawyers do not represent clients outside the clinic setting itself unless the lawyer agrees to continue representation of that client through SAVLP.
Clinics are a great way to make a difference. We still need volunteers for the following dates:
Thursday, 8/2 in Spanish Fort
from 1:00- 3:00pm at Prodisee Pantry
Wednesday, 8/8 in Bayou La Batre
from 1:30- 4:00pm at the BayouClinic
Thursday, 8/9 & 9/13 we will have our monthly limited legal advice clinic at the
Mobile County Courthouse from 1:00- 3:00pm
Monday, 9/17 in Gulf Shores
from 1:30- 3:00pm at the
Christian Service Center
On September 11 and 20 we are offering a WILLS FOR HEROS CLINICS in Baldwin County. Firefighters, police, and emergency medical personnel devote their lives to serving their communities and they are prepared to pay the ultimate price in the line of duty. The Wills for Heroes project provides the legal community with a way to show its appreciation for the efforts and sacrifices of these brave men and women. Wills for Heroes offers first responders free basic estate planning services. SAVLP provides a computer containing the HotDocs software needed to prepare the Will, Powers of Attorney and Advanced Directive for the first responder which will be completed while meeting with them. We will have several more Wills for Heroes Clinics at the end of August and September in both Mobile and Baldwin Counties; look for an email with additional information.
DRU LAUREN BISHOP started as our Pro Bono Manager on June 11th, you can reach her at drulauren@savlp.org or call (251) 433-6693 to sign up for any of these volunteer opportunities!
