This budget hinges on the outcome of the education tax initiatives in the November election. If these measures fail, an estimated additional $7.8 million in mid-year reductions would take effect, drastically impacting staffing and programs and forcing the district to shorten the school year.The budget we passed highlights the importance of one or both education related initiatives passing in November,” said PUSD Board President Renatta Cooper. “I shudder to think what this district might look like if the initiatives fail. I am counting on the voting public to recognize the great divide between what the public expects schools to deliver and the actual funds we receive.”It is the fifth consecutive year that PUSD has sustained cuts in funding because of the ongoing state budget crisis. Funding that the district receives from the state is at pre-2006 levels. If the Governor enacts mid-year cuts upon the failure of the ballot initiatives then funding levels for PUSD would be at pre-2004 levels. The district enters the new fiscal year already looking ahead to 2013-2014. Current budget projections for 2013-2014 show a deficit of $7.3 million even if the initiatives pass in November.“This budget is a difficult pill to swallow for the entire PUSD family,” said PUSD Superintendent Jon R. Gundry. “Although we tried to find ways to limit the impact on instruction, there is no way to keep the budget cuts away from the classroom. I thank the bargaining units that have agreed to furloughs and other sacrifices if the November initiatives fail. I hope our other bargaining units will follow suit soon.”Teamsters Local 911, representing custodians, painters, maintenance and operations, food service and warehouse workers, and the Association of Pasadena School Administrators (APSA) have agreed to furloughs should the initiatives not pass. California School Employees Association Local 434, representing office workers and instructional aides, has informed their members that they will hold firm until after the November election in negotiations with the District. PUSD has declared an impasse after failing to come to an agreement with United Teachers of Pasadena (UTP) in negotiations over health and welfare benefits for the 2011-2012 school year. The District hopes to continue negotiations with UTP and CSEA as soon as possible to achieve some certainty for their members and the district.Superintendent Gundry added, “We will continue to closely monitor our expenses and make modifications if they become warranted.”The PUSD 2012-2013 All Funds Budget and the Budget Reduction Plan outlining the cuts and one-time savings can be viewed at pusdbudget.pasadenausd.org.center_img Pasadena Will Allow Vaccinated People to Go Without Masks in Most Settings Starting on Tuesday Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy First Heatwave Expected Next Week Top of the News More Cool Stuff faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,PCC – EducationVirtual Schools PasadenaDarrell Done EducationHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS Your email address will not be published.

U.S. Supreme Court Weighs in on Ticking FDCPA Timer

Klemm, 2019 U.S. LEXIS 7521, the United States Supreme Court resolved a dispute between the federal appellate circuits regarding when the statute of limitations begins to run under the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA or Act).A statute of limitations is the amount of time permitted to bring a particular court action—in other words, it’s the ticking timer. Typically, once that countdown ends, or in legal terms, the limitations period expires, the right to sue expires along with it.The FDCPA, which is a federal Act designed to keep debt collectors in-check, permits suits “within one year from the date on which the violation occurs.” 15 U.S.C. §1692k(d). Although this language appears to be rather clear-cut, in law, shadows can often be created out of seemingly transparent passages.In Mangum v. Action Collection Serv, Inc., 575 F.3d 925 (9th Cir., 2009), the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals held that all federal statutes of limitation, including the FDCPA’s, begin to run “when the plaintiff knows or had reason to know of the injury.” Id. at 940.  This rule, otherwise known as the discovery rule, sets the clock to begin ticking only upon the detection, rather than the occurrence of the violation, despite the contradicting language of the FDCPA itself, thereby greatly expanding the timeframe to litigate for many possible suits.However, in a later case, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals declined to follow this path, reiterating that the FDCPA statute of limitations runs from “the date on which the violation occurs.” Rotkiske v.  Klemm, 890 F.3d 422 (3rd Cir., 2018.) In doing so, the Court directly rejected the Ninth Circuit’s approach and refused to apply a broad discovery rule to all federal limitations periods.To silence its squabbling children, the U.S. Supreme Court agreed to weigh-in—legally phrased as granting certiorari to resolve an appellate conflict—and deemed the Third Circuit the victor. The Court held that “[t]he FDCPA limitations period begins to run on the date the alleged FDCPA violation actually happened. We must presume that Congress ‘says in a statute what it means and means in a statute what it says…’” Rotkiske v. Klemm, 2019 U.S. LEXIS 7521, *8. In appearing to chastise the Ninth Circuit, the High Court went on to state that “[i]t is not our role to second-guess Congress’ decision to include a ‘violation occurs’ provision, rather than a discovery provision…[w]e simply enforce the value judgments made by Congress.” Id. at *10.However, a door to widening the limitations period was left distinctly ajar, as the Supreme Court carefully stated that it was not deciding whether the application of “equitable doctrines” would be permissible. According to the Court, this issue wasn’t properly presented, and therefore wouldn’t be determined. Nonetheless, the Court distinctly acknowledged the existence of something known as the “fraud discovery rule.” Id. at *11.The fraud discovery rule, a close cousin to the similarly worded ‘discovery rule,’ states that “where a plaintiff has been injured by fraud and remains in ignorance of it without any fault or want of diligence or care on his part, the bar of the statute [of limitations] does not begin to run until the fraud is discovered.” Id. at *13-14. More simply stated, under the fraud discovery rule, a delayed clock start time is permitted when fraud exists.In dissent, Justice Ginsburg, although agreeing with the Supreme Court’s disallowance of the general discovery rule, argued that the fraud discovery rule was properly presented and should have been ruled upon. Moreover, she stated that she would have held that “the [fraud discovery] rule governs if either the conduct giving rise to the claim is fraudulent, or if fraud infects the manner in which the claim is presented.”  Of course, fraud allegations must typically be pled with particularity, so specific facts regarding the fraud would still be needed.Regardless, absent allegations of fraud, it’s now clear that the ticking timer for FDCPA suits really does begin on the date of the violation, just as the FDCPA dictates, which finally brings long-awaited certainty to the interpretation of already definitive language.center_img Lauren Riddick handles contested foreclosure matters as a member of the Codilis & Associates, P.C.’s Contested Litigation Unit and also assists with title matters.

Efficiency Vermont provides Vermont Foodbank with 15,000 CFL bulbs

Posted on

first_img### Efficiency Vermont is providing 15,000 60-, 75- and 100-watt equivalent compact fluorescent light (CFL) bulbs to the Vermont Foodbank, the state’s largest hunger-relief organization. The bulbs will be distributed to needy Vermonters through the Foodbank’s network of 270 sites located in all 14 counties of the state.The CFL distribution program kicks off during Hunger Action Month, a nationwide effort in September to motivate local action to end hunger.  In Vermont, the number of families seeking assistance from the Vermont Foodbank has risen 35-40 percent in the last 10 months.“We’re thrilled to support the Vermont Foodbank in its efforts to fight hunger in Vermont,” said Michael Russom, efficient products manager at Efficiency Vermont.  “For every CFL that’s used, needy Vermonters will save money on their energy bills, which gives them more money to buy the food they need.”Switching just six bulbs from incandescent to CFLs can save up to $250, and ENERGY STAR®-qualified CFLs use up to 75 percent less energy and can last 6-10 times longer than incandescent bulbs.  When any Vermonter saves energy, utilities generally need to buy less energy, so everyone’s electric bills are lower than they would be without energy-efficient practices.“September is Hunger Action Month, and we’re excited to work with Efficiency Vermont to empower our clients,” said John Sayles, CEO of the Vermont Foodbank.  “This partnership reduces energy usage and increases the funds available for purchasing food, moving us a step closer to eradicating hunger in our state.”The CFL bulbs, manufactured by Greenlite Corporation of Irvine, CA, are available through the Vermont Foodbank’s network of 270 food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, senior centers and after-school programs.The 15,000-CFL distribution project is the latest collaboration between Efficiency Vermont and the Vermont Foodbank.  The partnership extends to energy efficiency projects at Foodbank facilities around the state.At its new southern Vermont warehouse in Brattleboro, the Vermont Foodbank is adding new refrigeration systems that include advanced Freeaire® technology.  This new system utilizes temperature sensors linked to a fan controller to bring in fresh – and free – cold air when the outside temperature is below the necessary cooler temperature.Efficiency Vermont also has completed energy-saving projects with the Vermont Foodbank at its facilities in Barre and Wolcott, helping to make the business more energy efficient.“Every reduction in the Vermont Foodbank’s operating costs achieved through energy efficiency means that the Vermont Foodbank has more resources to do even more to support the neediest in communities around the state,” said Sheryl Graves, project manager at Efficiency Vermont.Efficiency Vermont was created by the Vermont Legislature and the Vermont Public Service Board to help all Vermonters reduce energy costs, strengthen the economy, and protect Vermont’s environment. Efficiency Vermont is currently operated by Vermont Energy Investment Corporation (VEIC), an independent organization under contract to the Vermont Public Service Board. VEIC is a Vermont-based nonprofit organization founded in 1986.
