WC On July 1st of each year, the Alabama Commissioner of Labor determines the State’s average weekly wage to used in relation to injuries occurring on the job on or after July 1 of that year. Subject to maximum and minimum rates, temporary total disability (TTD) benefits are paid to workers in Alabama who are injured on the job at a rate of 66 2/3 of their average weekly wage. TTD benefits are paid during the “healing period” that follows an injury and continue until the worker reaches maximum medical improvement. Effective July 1, 2013, the maximum temporary total disability (TTD) benefit increased to $788 per week, meaning that if an employee earned $1,182 per week or $61,464 annually and was injured on the job, he or she would be paid a maximum TTD benefit of $788 per week. http://dir.alabama.gov/docs/guides/wc_weeklywage.pdf

If you think Biglaw has a quality control problem, then you should check out the tactical decisions coming from some prosecutors’ offices. You’d think there would be someone in the chain of command who would see motions like these come across the desk and say, “Hey, maybe this will make us look incredibly stupid.”

At least we hope this is a quality control problem. It’d be way worse if tactical decisions this asinine came down from on high.

Anyway, the government in this case made a huge mistake. Sorry, I mean “the prosecutors,” because they don’t want to be called “the government” anymore, and filed a motion in limine to that effect.

Thankfully, this clever attorney wrote an epic response trolling the prosecutors for their ludicrous motion….

The Internet gives us access to much information. With social networking we can see what people are doing and sometimes even where they are located at an exact moment. Although this ability to see into people's lives may be useful, it can also be very dangerous. Not only can someone see the good things that someone is involved in, but they can also see the negative things.
