Courts brace for budget shortfall

by admin
first_imgCourts brace for budget shortfall Courts brace for budget shortfall Senior EditorForeclosure filings have dropped off dramatically since December, triggering a current cash-flow budget crisis for the courts that will bring the State Courts Revenue Trust Fund balance to zero by the end of March.The state courts are bracing for a more than $70 million shortfall, said State Courts Administrator Lisa Goodner on February 14. If the Legislature does not come to the rescue with special appropriations, Goodner said, there would be no choice but to furlough employees in the court system.“If we don’t have money in payroll, we can’t ask them to work,” Goodner said.Goodner confirmed $74 million is “an internal working number for planning purposes that represents a worst-case scenario.” She gave a $70 million shortfall estimate to the House Justice Appropriations Subcommitee on February 16, explaining she will have a firmer number once the Article V Budget Estimating Conference, which met two days earlier, releases its figures.She explained to legislators that the courts were “totally within budget” and the crisis is “not an expenditure problem. This is an income problem.”“The estimates we were working on as late as November would have had us finishing this year with adequate revenue. We are seeing a dramatic change in revenue coming in than forecast previously,” Goodner told the News, of foreclosure filings plummeting in December, January, and so far in February.“We have been caught up short by a sudden change in the filings.. . . “Our only conjecture is the banks have quit filing cases until they know they can get successful completion of cases, and there are several hundred thousand cases in the backlog, and they may be focusing on those efforts. There is a likelihood that filings will pick up midstream, but we have a cash flow problem now,” Goodner said.The Legislature “will have to come up with a supplemental funding package. I believe they will do that,” Goodner said.The court clerks also have a shortfall.“They have pressures within the system for both entities, where we don’t have enough for the end of the year,” Goodner said.The cash-flow crisis underscores the vulnerability of relying too much on foreclosure filings in the State Courts Revenue Trust Fund, created in 2009 as a designated source of state revenue to fund operations of the judicial branch. For FY 2011-12, $370 million in the trust fund was fueled largely by revenues from foreclosure filings, which is funding about 90 percent of the total $467 million state courts budget, Goodner said, adding the courts’ budget is about 81 percent payroll.“Our goal and intent of having a trust fund was having a variety of court-generated income streams, to take the volatility out of the revenue stream,” Goodner said.“That’s not the way it happened. Unfortunately, because of the unpredicted, dramatic decline in filings, there’s been a significant drop-off in revenue. We are rapidly chewing up our cash balance.”At the subcommittee meeting, Rep. Eric Eisnaugle, R-Orlando, said: “Given the current economic situation we find ourselves in, the budget situation we find ourselves in, I’m sure the court isn’t just putting its eggs in that one basket. I’m sure the court is taking significant actions to resolve the problem by itself, in case that becomes necessary. Could you tell the committee what actions the court is taking to resolve the problem, if no additional funding is available?”Goodner answered that there are cash reserves in mediation and court education trust funds, but she would need legislative authority to spend those dollars on the shortage. Without assistance from the Legislature, she said, furloughing staff is the only option. March 1, 2011 Jan Pudlow Senior Editor Regular Newslast_img

Gala Proceeds Aid Abuse Victims

by admin
first_imgThe Retreat will host its annual All Against Abuse gala this Saturday, June 9, from 6:30 to 11 PM at The Muses in Southampton.Since the gala’s beginning in 1996, artists and celebrities have crafted one-of-a-kind, hand-painted ceramic platters as the signature pieces of this long beloved event. Over the course of two decades, this gala has raised more than $2.5 million through generous donations that aid in the safety and support of those suffering from domestic violence.All Against Abuse board member Ellie Kurrus started as a volunteer for The Retreat in 2014 by answering its 24-hour hotline. She vividly remembers her first call. “The victim had just escaped from being barricaded in her room without a cell phone. She was able to squeeze through barred windows, climb down the fire escape, and get to the safety of the police, who referred her to The Retreat. I remember thinking, ‘No one should have to live like this!’”That single call solidified her support for the organization and its goals to raise funds to help as many victims as possible. “Abuse comes in all forms. Recognizing it and getting help is essential for you and your family’s safety and future. The Retreat is there to help you break the cycle and heal,” she noted.The Retreat was started in 1987 as a local non-profit supporting the survivors of abuse and assault across the East End. Its programs have grown to include a residential shelter for adults and children, counseling, a 24-hour hotline, in-school violence prevention education program in all local schools, and legal advocacy for all victims, free of charge.Ann Chwatsky was previously involved in the gala’s art auction component and is a former member of the board. She still serves on the All Against Abuse committee. She described a particular painting, “The artist, April Gornik, has been a supporter of our art auction part of the gala for many years, and that is so appreciated. This year, she has given us a beautiful print — tones of blues that evoke land masses and oceans,” Chwatsky said.This year’s gala honorees are Joy Behar, co-host of ABC News’s “The View,” and Emmy Award-winning producer, Robin Hommel-Tenenbaum. It will also feature author and national advocate, Leslie Morgan Steiner.“Robin and I are grateful we can use our platforms to shine a light on domestic violence and support The Retreat’s life-changing work. What this organization does to help the brave individuals and families heal is deeply touching. We remain inspired to share the mission and needs of The Retreat and celebrate their clients’ resilience,” explained Behar.Steiner is a survivor of domestic violence. At the young age of 22, the Harvard graduate found herself in a four-year marriage to a Wall Street banker who held loaded guns to her head and yanked car keys out of the ignition as she drove on the highway. Scared for her life, she realized, above anything else, she needed a safe haven and legal representation.“[I needed] assurance that it wasn’t my fault that I had fallen in love with a deeply troubled, abusive man. My friends and family couldn’t give me that, despite their love,” Steiner said.“So, in my time of greatest need, I turned to strangers in the domestic violence community for support and guidance. The Retreat gives the East End’s abuse survivors everything they need to transform their lives at no charge and without any judgment. I’m proud to tell my story at the All Against Abuse event to raise much needed awareness and money to benefit the Retreat’s important and life-changing programs,” Steiner added.This year’s Artist Honor Roll includes April Gornik, Barbara Maslen, Barry Kreiswirth and Lisa Allen, Dan Rizzie, Jack Youngerman, Jill Musnicki, Justin Greenwald, Miles Jaffe, Peter Dayton, Toni Toss, Dan Welden, and Lynn Savarese.Cocktail music will be provided by The John Ludlow Duo featuring Steve Nelson, catering by Art of Eating, and after dinner dancing by East End Entertainment. This year’s auctioneer is CK Swett.The Muses is located at 111 Saint Andrews Road, Southampton. The Retreat is located at 13 Goodfriend Drive, East Hampton.

Bar conviction disclosure rule ‘misguided’

by admin
first_imgThe Law Society and Bar ­Council have strongly opposed proposals to impose a duty on barristers to disclose clients’ previous convictions. Chancery Lane described as ‘misguided’ a Bar Standards Board suggestion that a barrister should advise a client that they must cease to act if the client refuses consent to inform the prosecution about previous convictions. Responding to a BSB consultation on its new handbook, the Society said the change would undermine lawyer/client trust and the duty of privilege and confidentiality. It said the proposal would place the BSB code at odds with that of solicitors in a key area where the rules applying to all advocates need to be ­consistent. Neither advocates nor clients have a duty to disclose previous convictions, the Society stated. However, it noted that in practice a defence advocate’s failure to cite their client’s good character in mitigation should alert the prosecution of the need to check the antecedence. The Bar Council said the change ‘may appear superficially attractive’, but on closer examination is ‘demonstrably inappropriate’ in an adversarial process. It said: ‘It should be no part of the duty of defence counsel to introduce material that is damaging to his client’s interests.’ To require such action, it said, would undermine the client’s confidence in counsel’s independence and discourage frank and open discussion. The Bar Council argued: ‘It is the duty of the prosecution properly to research and accurately to present to the court the previous convictions of the accused.’ It added that the public interest is best met by the prosecution discharging its obligation properly.last_img
