The 2-Minute Drill – Your (somewhat) Daily Legal Update

Tarley's compilation of articles he has been reading about the law

  1. Undefeated and 9-time world champion boxer Floyd Mayweather is being sued by the homeowners association governing his gated community. According to the lawsuit filed by HOA’s attorney, it seems that Floyd has been “threatening the life of a patrol officer, physically accosting a security officer, refusing to provide identity to gate officers.” Among other things, the HOA wants Floyd to stay in his car when he gets to the gate. Seems like good advice.
  2. Continuing with the sports theme, Newport News, Virginia native and former NFL quarterback Aaron Brooks has signed a deal with construction giant Armada Hoffler to develop the Southeast Community of Newport News. Newport News is trying to redevelop the Southeast Community and hopes are that the venture between Armada Hoffler and Brooks will succeed.
  3. Mediation is a good idea, and it’s an even better idea to do it early before extensive litigation expenses are incurred. Some confuse “arbitration” with “mediation” but in mediation, an independent third party mediator helps the parties negotiate a resolution. Just like in negotiations, you control the outcome: neither a mediator nor your attorney can negotiate a resolution without your authorization. A mediator helps facilitate the negotiation, but cannot make decisions or rulings on your case. On the other hand, arbitrations are like trials and arbitrators make decisions like judges.
