Recount likely in Virginia attorney general race after Democrat's narrow win certified

Also Can condo owner insist on having an electric vehicle charging station? Answer: The quick answer is yes, but not exactly. The basic rule is that when an attorney represents the board, the fiduciary duty is owed toward every board director, and the board as a whole has the ultimate say on all issues. But the board is a group, and whenever a lawyer represents a group of people any group (the board being just one example) the attorney has the right to ask that all communications go through designated directors. Otherwise, the lawyer could be receiving continual and conflicting communications. Boards should be mindful of the possibility of manager interference with board duties. The manager is not a board director and is not the client. Nor can the manager take on the role of legal liaison between the board and its attorney because, unlike the board, the manager has conflicting interests and allegiances. The fact that the manager undoubtedly works for more than one association may give rise to conflicts. More important, while the manager may recommend incurring additional legal charges, he or she does not have to pay any part of the association's legal fees.

Newegg?s attorney: ?TQP is in the business of suing?

McDonnell said Monday one option could be extending that time window from four hours to possibly six or eight hours. "We're going to do everything we can to analyze the cause of this, whether there were violations of protocols, whether there need to be changed to the lawsall those things are being looked at," McDonnell said. "If I were him, absolutely" Switching to politics, the outgoing Governor was asked whether Republican state Sen. Mark Obenshain should request a recount after the Virginia Board of Elections certified Monday the November 5 election results. The results showed Democratic state Sen. Mark Herring won by far less than 1% of the total vote, meaning Obenshain can ask for a recount. "If I were him, absolutely," McDonnell said, on whether Obenshain should make the request. Obenshain has until December 5 to make a decision. McDonnell also found himself in a close attorney general's race in 2005, when he narrowly defeated Deeds, the Democratic candidate, in a recount. "I feel for both of the candidates," McDonnell said. "They've slugged it out for two years and it ain't over." He added that he didn't know the results of 2005 recount until December 21 of that year. "I think both Mark and Mark are going to have a stressful Thanksgiving," he said.

Utah Attorney General Announces Resignation

As Swallow announced his resignation Thursday, he vigorously denied breaking any laws and instead cited the strain the "perfect storm" of allegations has put on his family. "Now is the time for the madness to stop and for the state to move forward," Swallow said. "The toll on my family, the toll on my office and the toll on our finances has been too much. It is time for it to stop." The flameout of a politician who sailed into office with nearly two-thirds of the vote a year ago leaves the Utah Republican Party scrambling to find a replacement. Utah Republican Gov. Gary Herbert will choose from among three GOP-picked candidates to fill the office.

Attorney accused of stealing from Somerville law firm admitted into Pretrial Intervention Program

Leotti, 48, of Raritan Township, was admitted on Nov. 18 into the states Pretrial Intervention Program for one year in connection with a theft charge, and was ordered to pay $33,000 in restitution, according to court documents.

Leotti has been fired by the law firm, court documents state. In April, the state Supreme Court temporarily suspended Leotti from practicing law.

McDonnell talks mental health, attorney general's race

"I'm concerned with the integrity of the vote." After the meeting, Judd denied he was making the case for a recount, but said instead his concern was making sure future statewide votes are conducted uniformly. "I'm not inviting a challenge," said Judd, adding that a recount is "very likely." ''I'm concerned about the lack of uniformity, that there be no differences in any of the localities in how votes are counted," he said. In Fairfax County, for example, Republicans complained the local election board extended too much time for voters to appear to argue that their provisional ballots be counted. "I personally have concerns about Fairfax County and the process of their canvass," Judd said. While the board's role in the election is over, he said he would meet with election officials in that heavily Democratic county to ensure there is no confusion in the future. Fairfax County election officials insisted then they were hewing state election law, and they repeated that assertion on Monday. "My response is basically what we've been saying," said Brian Schoeneman, the secretary of the Fairfax County board. "The Fairfax County Electoral Board followed Virginia law and State Board of Elections guidance in how we handled the November 2013 General Election. " Schoeneman, a Republican, said he was concerned that Judd's comments were suggesting the "false perception" that the handling of provisional ballots altered the statewide race, "which is simply untrue." Before the state's certification, Herring and Obenshain each named transition teams to succeed Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, who fell short in his Republican bid for governor. Their positions were unchanged Monday. "I am gratified that the State Board of Elections today certified me as the winner of a close but fair election," Herring said in a statement.
