Legal Links – February 12, 2016

February 12, 2016

On Fridays, we compile and post Legal Links, a list of legal news, reported cases, community events and topics of interest to Lancaster residents and readers of the Lancaster Law Blog.

  1. The People Vs. O. J. Simpson. One of the first national news events I can recall is the verdict from the O. J. Simpson trial. I vividly remember a TV being rolled on a cart into my 5th grade classroom, I assume so that the teachers could get together and watch the verdict.

FX has put together a true crime TV series, with the first season focusing on the O. J. Simpson murder trial. The series has an all-star cast, featuring Cuba Gooding Jr. as O.J. Simpson, John Travolta as Robert Shapiro, and David Schwimmer as Robert Kardashian, to name a few.

If you haven’t seen it, you aren’t too far behind – only two episodes of the show have aired. Catch up On Demand or via the FX Now app.

Interested in the factual accuracy of the show? Both Vulture and Vanity Fair are running series that fact-check the show.

  1. Calling All Young Professionals! There’s a new networking group in town. The Ephrata Area Chamber of Commerce Young Professionals Network will have their inaugural event on Wednesday March 2, 2016 from 5:00-7:00 pm at Boniface Craft Brewing Company.

The event is free for Ephrata Chamber members and $5.00 for non-members. If you’re interested in learning more, here’s a link for registration and additional information.

  1. Vehicle Registration Stickers. Speaking of registration – in 2017, Pennsylvania will eliminate vehicle registration stickers, saving over $3 million dollars in costs.
  1. Speaking Out. Next week, the dynamic duo of Matt Landis and Lindsay Schoeneberger will be giving a presentation about contracts and estate planning (respectively) to the Lancaster Networking Group. Matt will also be presenting a seminar to ASSETS Lancaster’s Lending Circles on the basics of employment law for small businesses and entrepreneurs.
