San Franciscans can look to just about any news outlet and recognize the contentious case that the City of San Francisco brought against California landlord Anne Kihagi. The political pressure on the case, however, means that the media isn’t reporting the sinister legal behavior on the part of the City, nor the bias by Judge Angela Bradstreet, throughout the trial proceedings. Many of the judge’s rulings were clearly indicative of favoritism and partiality, despite fairness being the known cornerstone of the American justice system. A biased judge should therefore not be permitted... Read More
The American legal system is very complex, and it takes a lot of talented professionals to keep things running smoothly — or at least, as smoothly as is possible. Here’s a closer look at a lesser-known type of professional that our courtrooms and legal procedures wouldn’t be able to survive without. We’re talking about court reporters, also known as court stenographers or just stenographers.
What is a court reporter?
A lot of things are said in court. And for our legal system to be fair, we need to know precisely what was said, down to the last word. The job of recording... Read More
A December 2017 HuffPost article explored the issue of prosecutorial misconduct, noting that “prosecutors are relied upon to police themselves, and it isn’t working... The problem is rooted in a culture of infallibility.” Public prosecutors are legally obliged to serve as arbiters of justice; instead, more and more are interfering with it by abusing their power. Justice quickly takes a backseat to fame, money, and ego.
A recent contentious case in San Francisco raises questions of prosecutorial misconduct that is becoming stunningly common. City of San Francisco v. Anne Kihagi was... Read More

But when the death is caused by someone else’s negligence or wrongdoing, it’s even more challenging to deal with. Anger, regret, and unanswered questions linger like a thick fog with no signs of lifting. And even though you don’t want to think about the situation more than you have to, a wrongful death suit may be your best legal option for bringing closure.
What are the Elements... Read More

Many articles have exposed the extensive issue of prosecutorial misconduct, including a recent article raising concerns about the San Francisco City Attorneys’ allowance of false evidence in the tumultuous case City of San Francisco v. Kihagi despite knowledge of fact.
In an effort to amass ammunition (whether true or not) against local African American landlord Anna Kihagi, the City Attorney had been spying on her for months with the help of nasty tenants. In one attempt, the City sent an investigator to see if the landlord was renting out a restricted unit and ultimately confirmed... Read More
As business and technology become more and more integrated, the question of ethics pops up quite frequently. How much information should we be allowed to collect about customers? What information is considered private? Should companies be allowed to sell that information to third parties? Unfortunately, these are not simple questions to answer. This is because for the most part, customers are in the dark. They are unaware of how much information companies collect about them and what they do with that said information.
That being said, there have been multiple scandals involving... Read More
