Can Sexual Harassment Be Verbal?
Workplace sexual harassment is more common than many people think. It also comes in multiple forms. While most people associate sexual harassment with sexual advances and physical acts like inappropriate touching and gestures, one of the most common forms of sexual harassment as well as the most pervasive is verbal.

Verbal sexual harassment in a work environment can be defined as repeated and continuous comments and communicative behaviors (such as written behaviors like leaving notes or sending emails or chat messages) of a sexual nature or that are offensive towards a person’s gender. These comments can be said to the person directly, near them, or about them. Sexual harassment can happen to anyone—regardless of their gender identity.

Saying Goodbye to John Coulter, Partner at McMath Woods

Published on Apr 25, 2022 at 12:47 pm in Firm News.

We are saddened by the passing of McMath Woods partner John Coulter. John passed away on April 22, 2022, after having lived with lung cancer since January 2020.

John was truly a “lawyer’s lawyer” and a tremendous advocate of the civil legal system. He believed that everyone deserved to have legal representation. John really cared, and you could see that care in every case he handled and everyone he helped. He always put his family and community first. He served as Pro Bono Counsel as well as volunteered at the Little Rick School District where he never missed an opportunity to read to a roomful of students or pitch in wherever help was needed.

John leaves behind a legacy of kindness and generosity toward others. Our thoughts and prayers are with Laura, Jonathan, and the entire Coulter family.

To learn more about John and his memorial services which will take place on May 16th, 2022, you may view his obituary here.

Making the decision that a nursing home is the best place for your loved one is never easy. When you choose a facility to care for, support, protect, and create a warm home environment for an older adult you care about, you trust that things will go well even when you can’t be there. But no matter how ideal a nursing home may be, you still need to be involved in your family member or friend’s life to make sure they receive the care and attention they need—and that’s right for them as an individual. Concerned relatives of an older adult who moved into a long-term care facility may be asking: How can I check on my loved one in a nursing home?

What to Do After a T-Bone Accident
Even when there are stop signs or traffic lights, intersections can be tricky places to navigate. Any time that you are dealing with multiple lanes and flows of traffic there is the potential for serious harm, including T-bone accidents.

After the initial impact in a T-bone accident, one car is often pushed off its original course and into other lanes of traffic. This creates an opportunity for a second impact, more injuries, additional vehicle damage, and even death.

If you’ve lost a loved one in an accident or incident that wasn’t their fault and you’re in the process of filing a wrongful death lawsuit against the negligent party, one of the things you’ll need to understand is how wrongful death settlements are distributed. Every state has unique laws regarding who can receive money from a wrongful death settlement if your claim is successful and what that money can be used for. Since wrongful death lawsuits are filed on behalf of someone else, it’s understandable that there are rules that govern how a settlement is divided.
