MIAMI, March 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ronald Green, a former Senior Intelligence Research Specialist with the Miami office of Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) who suffered from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) will be paid $125,000 by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to settle his federal lawsuit claims for disability harassment and retaliation. Green was represented in the lawsuit by Roderick Hannah, Esq. of Sunrise, Florida. The case was filed in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida (Case No. 1:19-cv-24510-RNS). According to the lawsuit and his attorney, Green claimed that because of his PTSD he was the victim of unlawful harassment and a hostile work environment created by members of management and his supervisors, all of whom were aware of his disabling condition. When he internally and repeatedly complained about the hostile work environment he was experiencing, Green claimed he was retaliated against by the same managers and supervisors with further harassment, unfair official counselings and reprimands, an unfair negative performance review, denial of reasonable accommodation requests, denial of a within-grade increase of his annual salary, stripping of his additional special security representative duties that derailed a promotional opportunity, and a forced early retirement on the advice of his doctors and to avoid the exacerbation of his PTSD symptoms, which Green viewed as life-threatening. As further described in the lawsuit and court filings, for most of his 19-plus years with the agency and until January 2017, Green had never been disciplined and had received consistently excellent performance evaluations. However, in January 2017, there was a management change at the Special Agent in Charge Intelligence Program in which Green worked and which was being run at the time by Special Agent in Charge Mark Selby. According to the lawsuit, Green was subjected to repeated harassment by the then Deputy Special Agent in Charge Anthony Salisbury, the Program’s Chief Intelligence Officer Jacob Dumansky, and Green’s first line supervisor Jada Keltz. According to the lawsuit, Green repeatedly informed Salisbury, Dumansky, and Keltz of his PTSD and his need to be accommodated by not being required to conduct certain in-person intelligence briefings with the Special Agent in Charge. Green also repeatedly requested one-on-one meetings, first with Salisbury and then with Special Agent in Charge Selby, to fully explain his situation and the need for management and his supervisors to be sensitive to and accommodating for his disability and its limitations. However, Green claimed that each of his efforts to schedule these private one-on-one meetings and his efforts to be accommodated were thwarted by Salisbury, Selby, and Dumansky. According to Green, his requests were instead met with insensitivity, negative feedback, and a ramping up of the harassment. When he ultimately complained about his situation in writing and even after his attorney, Hannah, intervened on his behalf, Green was retaliated against, still was not accommodated, and continued to meet resistance and hostility from his supervisors, Salisbury, Dumanksy, and Keltz. As a result of these actions, according to the lawsuit, Green suffered severe emotional distress and mental anguish, the exacerbation of his PTSD, and even was hospitalized. The lawsuit further alleged that because of the continuing harassment and retaliatory actions being taken against him by management and his supervisors, he lost a valuable promotional opportunity and was left with no choice, per his physician’s recommendations and for his own mental and physical wellbeing, to take an early retirement with decreased retirement benefits. After more than a year of fighting his lawsuit in federal court, the Department of Homeland Security ultimately agreed to pay Green $125,000 to settle his claims instead of going to trial. Although according to his attorney, Green feels some vindication for what the agency put him through while he was employed, Green firmly believes that the agency needs to be more sensitive and accommodating to those of its employees, such as him, who suffer from severe PTSD, a much-misunderstood disability. According to his attorney Hannah, after agreeing to the settlement, Green authored and sent a letter to Alejandro Mayorkas, the new Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, asking for a one-on-one meeting with Mayorkas and upper agency management to discuss his situation and how the agency could better address the handling of employees with PTSD going forward. “He hopes to have his voice heard by those who are in charge, contrary to the mistreatment and cold shoulders he repeatedly received from his local managers and supervisors,” Hannah said, adding, “we hope that DHS, at Mr. Mayorkas’ insistence, will agree to meet with Mr. Green and take the necessary steps to make sure in the future that no employee with PTSD has to suffer harassment, discrimination, and insensitivity in the workplace.” For More Information, Contact:Charles Jonescjones@cjonespr.com305-987-7418 PDF accompanying this announcement are available at: http://ml.globenewswire.com/Resource/Download/a9a58026-4d07-40d6-bdac-8b720bd64448 http://ml.globenewswire.com/Resource/Download/087e3c04-45bf-4dd7-8433-fcad39f09085
Diminished Capacity: A Novel of Legal Suspense,” by Leighton Rockafellow puts the spotlight on a lawyer’s struggles as he fights to keep his reputation from the death penalty TUCSON, Ariz., March 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Just when Arizona couldn’t get any hotter, a murder trial and a budding lawyer have set the city of Tucson ablaze. “Diminished Capacity: A Novel of Legal Suspense” plunges readers into the trial of Tom Rogers who has been accused of brutally murdering his business partner. All signs point to guilt for Tom but his lawyer, Larry Ross, is on the hunt to ramp up his profile, and proving a seemingly guilty man is innocent is the perfect start. While awaiting trial, Ross has his big break when a high-profile liability case against a major auto manufacturer lands on his desk. Just when the pressure becomes too hot to handle his one-man practice is suddenly catapulted into the local and national spotlight. In the chase for innocence, readers find Larry is the man on trial, facing a jury of local and national onlookers who seem to have already sentenced him to death. Author Leighton Rockafellow has had a diverse legal career. His current work includes catastrophic injury and medical malpractice lawsuits, but his early years started much like Larry Ross’- he took on a plethora of cases to get his foot in the door including criminal, juvenile court law, divorce work, and products liability cases. While many lawsuits have come and gone, a haunting murder trial in 1984 has stayed with Rockafellow over the years and has surfaced similarly in his novel. “I never thought anyone could possibly make a reader sympathetic to the lives of lawyers. One thing the author does well is to tell things from different characters' perspectives, each time adding a new bit of information - often surprising information - that you didn't know before. I couldn't help but wonder if this comes from his lawyer experience of ‘every story has two sides’,” a reviewer wrote about the book. Readers will find themselves drawn to the challenges Larry faces as his struggles in and out of the courthouse are unique to the general public. The depth of thought behind each move before seeing the courtroom opens an entirely new world to the audience that can be appreciated by readers interested in the many facets of the truth and the endless pursuit of justice. “Diminished Capacity: A Novel of Legal Suspense”By Leighton Rockafellow ISBN: 9780595503858 (softcover); 9780595498000 (hardcover); 9780595614844 (electronic)Available at the iUniverse Online Bookstore, Amazon and Barnes & Noble About the authorLeighton Rockafellow began his law practice in Tucson, Arizona, in 1973 shortly after graduating from the University of Arizona.

Cohen, who is a major GameStop shareholder, has been pushing GameStop to move away from its traditional brick-and-mortar model since joining the board shortly before a social media frenzy drove a meteoric rise in the company's stock.

Shares of fuel cell company Bloom Energy (NYSE: BE) popped as much as 7% in early trading on the NYSE today before subsiding to about a 3.2% gain as of 11:20 a.m. EST. You can thank investment banker Credit Suisse for the pop -- but I fear the relapse is all on Bloom. This morning, Credit Suisse announced it is upgrading Bloom stock from neutral to outperform (i.e., buy) on the stock's recent pullback in price.
