Forty-nine years after his experiences of June 1944, Paul Massa continues his memories. His battalion was heading towards Cherbourg, fighting the Germans for every inch of ground.

“One morning we had tank support and I thought that was great. The tanks pulverized the trees and the hedgerows with their machine guns and the battalion really started moving. I was about 100 feet away behind one of the tanks when suddenly there was an explosion. At first I thought the tank’s 75mm gun had fired. The tank stopped, its engine roared as if it had skidded , then the turret lid opened and the crew rushed in, all but one man. He was trapped inside and I listened to his screams as he burned to death. After that, the other tanks withdrew, otherwise they would have been sitting ducks for the German gun which got the first tank.The tank burned for several days.After the third day, the engineers brought in a bulldozer to move it.Lieutenant who was driving the bulldozer was a friend of mine The same German 88 who got the tank got the bulldozer and killed the Lt.

A French couple’s clever way to get squatters out in just two days https://cc87portedoc.com/a-french-couples-clever-way-to-get-squatters-out-in-just-two-days/ Tue, 14 Jun 2022 12:56:23 +0000 https://cc87portedoc.com/a-french-couples-clever-way-to-get-squatters-out-in-just-two-days/ A couple whose newly bought French house was occupied by squatters found a clever way to get them out in just two days – causing such a huge buzz on social media that two ministers intervened.

A couple whose newly bought French house was occupied by squatters found a clever way to get them out in just two days – causing such a huge buzz on social media that two ministers intervened.

But now the media buzz has turned more to whether the couple knew the squatters were there before they bought and managed to negotiate a significant drop in price as a result, then kicked off the social media coverage with the aim of getting the family out quickly and making a profit. .

Their squatting story was widely relayed on Twitter and covered by several French media outlets who insisted it was the first house they had ever bought.

Interior Minister Gérald Darmanin and Ecological Transition Minister Amélie de Montchalin then took to Twitter themselves to ask the local prefect (prefect) to solve the problem.

Mr. Darmanin asked the prefect to order an eviction notice by invoking article 38 of the DALO law after the couple had fulfilled all the legal conditions for an eviction procedure on the Ollainville property in the department of Essonne (Ile-de-France).

The Parisian – the first French outlet to report the story – and other outlets have now raised questions about whether the couple knew the squatters were in place before buying – and negotiated a much lower price as a result.

The house was bought for €140,000, significantly less than other similar houses in the area according to a real estate agent contacted by France Inter.

The couple said they did not know of any squatters living in the house during the three visits they made in September 2021. They said they saw a mattress on the floor and concluded that someone could have slept there one night , Le Parisien said in a press release following complaints from readers of fake news.

Journalists from The Parisian said some contradictions in the couple’s statements have now convinced them that the couple knew about the squatters before buying.

What is the DALO law?

The Dalo Law was signed into law on March 6, 2007, and it was the law the couple used to get rid of their house in just two days, a process that can often take much longer.

“The Dalo law introduces the possibility of faster eviction when the accommodation is someone’s main residence,” said a spokeswoman for the Essonne Departmental Housing Information Agency (ADIL). , adding Article 38 aims to protect owners.

Read more: Woman rents French second home for a few weeks, tenant refuses to go

The owner must file a complaint with the police, produce legal documents to prove ownership of the house and ask the police to witness the illegal occupation. An expulsion order can then be served by a prefect.

For the couple in this high-profile case, the criteria were met in two days (June 3 and June 4), reports the Essonne prefecture.

Amendment of the law in 2020

The DALO law introduced an amendment on December 7, 2020 which added that the only possibility for a prefect to refuse an eviction order is if it would go against “the general interest”.

The amendment does not specify how the term can be understood but it could suggest that it was added to offer a backdoor solution to the prefect but which is – in reality – almost impossible to lift.

Camille Giraudet, policy manager at the Confédération Syndicale des Familles union, said eviction orders can often be politically motivated, given the profile of the couple of first-time homeowners hit with double payments – one for the mortgage on the new house and one to rent another property because of the squatters.

“If this couple negotiated a discount on the price, it means they were aware something was wrong,” Ms Giraudet said, adding she was not surprised as some estate agents run full businesses. based on the purchase of properties occupied by squatters.

She said the government’s involvement in this particular case had put pressure on the prefect to act quickly.

The restrictive amendment was added after several owners of second homes complained of “squatters” in highly covered cases, Ms Giraudet said.

Ms. Giraudet said she could not answer the question of whether the amendment distorted the original meaning of the DALO law, which was supposed to protect tenants.
“I just wish the evicted family were offered social housing,” she added, saying that was too often not the case.

Evict squatters

There are two different procedures in place to recover property that has been taken over by squatters in France. One is through litigation, which means it has to go through the courts.

It can take a very long time if the squatter(s) has a case for staying on the property, such as lack of alternative housing or other evidence that they shouldn’t leave.

The second procedure is administrative.

A new procedure, launched on February 1, now allows bailiffs to guide owners who are victims of squatting throughout the process of recovering their property by administrative means.

The bailiffs can offer free advice to the owners, but their assistance in the procedures will be invoiced approximately 200 to 300 €, to be specified according to the case.

This is usually a much more efficient way of dealing with squatters, with the situation usually being resolved within 72 hours. However, it took longer than that in 40% of cases in 2021, Le Figaro reports.

You can find a bailiff near you on this site.

On June 8, 2022, new campaign contribution restrictions went into effect in the City of Los Angeles. Enacted as part of Ordinance No. 186477, city law now prohibits property owners and developers with “significant planning right” applications pending before the city from making campaign contributions to the mayor, city ​​attorney, city council, or vetted candidates or committees for one of these offices. The types of rights applications subject to the ban include master plan amendments, development agreements, density bonuses, site plan revisions, tentative parcel maps, and area changes.

The contribution restriction runs from the date the application for eligibility is submitted to the city until 12 months after the city issues a final eligibility determination letter or, if no letter is issued, the date on which the decision on the application is final. In addition to property owners and developers, the restriction applies to their “principals”, including their owners more than 20%, the chairman of the board of directors, the president, the CEO, the chief financial officer, the director of operations and any person who occupies the functional equivalent of one of these positions and any person authorized to represent the owner or the developer before the town planning department. Although not apparent from statutory language, the city’s ethics commission has unofficially ruled that members of the general council are also covered. Applicants must notify owners and directors that they are subject to the ban.

The law further requires rights seekers to register with the city’s Ethics Commission through the city’s Restricted Developer Ranking System (ethics.rdfs.lacity.org/). This recording, which can be viewed publicly on the commission’s website (ethics.lacity.org/data/campaigns/restricted-developers) – requires applicants to disclose owner contact information and the names and titles of all directors. According to the commission, the registration requirement applies to all ongoing projects, even if the application for eligibility was submitted before June 8, 2022.

Penalties for violating the ban can be severe. In addition to monetary fines, willful conduct is subject to potential misdemeanor charges, and those who break the law are barred from re-applying for eligibility for 12 months, barring extenuating circumstances.

From hunger striker to deputy candidate: the rise of the French “humanist baker” | France https://cc87portedoc.com/from-hunger-striker-to-deputy-candidate-the-rise-of-the-french-humanist-baker-france/ Tue, 07 Jun 2022 14:50:00 +0000 https://cc87portedoc.com/from-hunger-striker-to-deputy-candidate-the-rise-of-the-french-humanist-baker-france/ AAfter dark in the kitchen of a bakery, Stéphane Ravacley was hitting blocks of butter with a giant rolling pin while preparing his croissant dough. “Many French people have lost faith in politics,” he said as he fashioned the first of 500 croissants. “They don’t vote, they don’t feel listened to, and it’s my fight […]]]>

AAfter dark in the kitchen of a bakery, Stéphane Ravacley was hitting blocks of butter with a giant rolling pin while preparing his croissant dough. “Many French people have lost faith in politics,” he said as he fashioned the first of 500 croissants. “They don’t vote, they don’t feel listened to, and it’s my fight to win them back.”

The 53-year-old baker who hails from what he calls the ‘bottom of the social ladder’ has captured France’s imagination as one of the most unlikely newcomers to the first round of this weekend’s legislative elections -end.

Ravacley’s outward challenge to Emmanuel Macron’s centrist party in Doubs near the Swiss border in eastern France draws attention to the newly re-elected president’s image problem as aloof, particularly over concerns people’s daily lives.

Macron is seeking a centrist parliamentary majority in order to have a free hand on his policies, such as raising the retirement age and overhauling the benefits system. But turnout on June 12 and 19 is expected to be at an all-time high of less than 48% amid growing distrust of the political class. Some voters believe the real battle will be with street protests against Macron’s policies starting in the fall, so there’s ‘not much point’ in voting, as one unemployed worker in a housing estate put it from the eastern town of Besançon.

A historic alliance of left-wing parties, led by radical Jean-Luc Mélenchon, is seeking big gains in parliament, and pollsters predict it will triple its seats and become the main opposition to Macron’s centrists. Marine Le Pen’s far-right National Rally is also seeking to increase its seats.

Ravacley, who does not belong to any political party, is a candidate for parliament for the left alliance, supported by the Greens. He argues that the French parliament, which is mostly middle-class with a high level of formal education, needs more working-class manual workers who understand the way the French think. He grew up in the east of France, in a poor family who worked the cereal fields. His mother died in a tractor accident when he was four, leaving his father with three children.

Quick guide

French legislative elections

Spectacle

What is happening?

France will vote in two rounds of legislative elections on June 12 and 19, which will determine the balance of power for the next five years. The results will define Emmanuel Macron’s ability to carry out his domestic policies, such as raising the retirement age and overhauling benefits.

How does voting work?

Voters choose 577 parliamentary representatives in the National Assembly under a “first past the post” voting system. Most constituencies proceed to a second round between two or three, sometimes four candidates. The top scorer wins.

What do the polls look like?

Macron’s centrist group is seeking an absolute majority, which requires winning at least 289 seats.

It is difficult for pollsters to accurately predict the number of seats in the final result.

Two polls in early April suggested Macron’s group could take between 275 and 315 seats. If Macron’s group wins the most seats but falls short of an outright majority, it will have to seek support on legislation from potentially right-wing allies.

The alliance of left parties of Jean-Luc Mélenchon is predicted in the polls for Ifop-Fiducial and Elaborated to significantly increase its number of seats between 155 and 205, which would make it the main opposition force.

Marine Le Pen’s far-right National Rally party has always been constrained by a lack of proportional representation and pollsters plan to increase its seats to between 20 and 65.

Thank you for your opinion.

Ravacley is known as the “humanist baker of Besançon”. He rose to fame last year for continuing hunger-strike in defense of his Guinean apprentice baker, Laye Fodé Traoré, an orphan who arrived in France as an unaccompanied minor aged 16, but threatened with deportation at the age of 18. Ravacley’s protest tapped into national concern for unaccompanied child migrants. Stars including actors Omar Sy and Marion Cotillard signed an open letter to Macron on his behalf. Yet it took 11 days of a hunger strike and Ravacley’s sudden hospitalization for authorities to make contact and begin processing Traore’s papers, allowing him to stay.

“When I went on a hunger strike, I was first met with silence from the authorities and that changed me as a person,” Ravacley said. “I’ve become a monster now – a kind, gentle monster – I really understand that if you want to change things, you have to fight for it.”

The baker’s campaign calendar is busy. He works his croissants until 10 p.m., sleeps three hours, gets up at 1:30 a.m. to bake the bread from his store until noon, takes a short nap, then leaves in his old Renault Twingo full of sacks of flour so that he prospected in his eastern constituency which extended from the subdivisions of Besançon to the small surrounding villages.

Ravacley still supports migrants who arrived as unaccompanied minors, as well as young French people leaving the care system, which has opened him up to far-right attacks. Last week, one of his election posters was sprayed with the Nazi swastika and racist insults. “I will never give in to hate,” he said.

In an election that pollsters described as dull and boring, Ravacley emerged as a high profile figure. At last month’s Cannes Film Festival, the Dardenne brothers’ directorial duo, whose latest film is about young migrants in Belgium, dedicated their film to Ravacley. They called his hunger strike “a great act of resistance in our time”.

Ravacley said: “I was unrolling my croissants, as usual at this time of night, the phone rang and someone said, ‘Turn on the TV, we’re talking about you in Cannes.’ Unbelievable.”

The city of Besançon, led by a Green mayor since 2020, saw a high vote for leftist Mélenchon in the presidential race – he came out on top in the first round, beating Macron and Le Pen. Ravacley’s challenge is whether the new left-wing alliance can now persuade voters to run for parliament again, especially in estates where abstention is high.

In estates in the Clairs-Soleils district of Besançon, as Ravacley knocked on doors, people said their biggest concern was making ends meet, as well as the climate crisis, but trust in politics was low.

Outside a primary school, Ahmed, 32, an accountant who picks up his two daughters, said he recognized Ravacley on television. “It’s important to have someone in parliament who understands people’s day-to-day concerns, and we’re really struggling with the cost of food and fuel,” he said. “If I vote, I will vote for him. But I’m not really sure it’s worth voting, nothing ever changes.

Nabia Hakkar-Boyer, Socialist Party regional councilor and Ravacley running mate, said: “He comes across as down-to-earth and different from the other candidates. He looks like the voters themselves and he understands their lives. He always has flour on his pants and he works more than 15 hours a day.

Since yellow vests anti-government protests in Macron’s first term, there was a demand for “ordinary citizens” to play a greater role in political decision-making. Under pressure, Macron promised this month to set up a broad democratic dialogue with the French, but he has not yet specified in what form.

Ravacley is not the only citizen protester to have become a candidate in the legislative elections this year. Rachel Keke, a hotel housekeeper who ran a two-year strike for better conditions for housekeepers in a hotel on the outskirts of Paris, is running for the left-wing alliance in the east of the capital.

Meanwhile, Ravacley even made his worn, flour-encrusted work shoes a campaign stunt. “I will go to the National Assembly in my magic shoes,” he said. “They keep me grounded.”

Responding to divorce where one spouse is ready to “burn down the (financial) house”. | Fox Rothschild LLP https://cc87portedoc.com/responding-to-divorce-where-one-spouse-is-ready-to-burn-down-the-financial-house-fox-rothschild-llp/ Fri, 03 Jun 2022 19:03:22 +0000 https://cc87portedoc.com/responding-to-divorce-where-one-spouse-is-ready-to-burn-down-the-financial-house-fox-rothschild-llp/ Extreme times produce irrational responses.

Extreme times produce irrational responses. One day ago, a disgruntled orthopedic patient in Oklahoma decided it was time to kill his surgeon. He took three more lives and these people got “in his way”.

We find that kind of irrational and largely self-destructive behavior in the domestic world was fine. A few weeks ago, the Superior Court ruled on a case where the company’s books and records were so bizarre that no meaning could be made from them. In a bizarre twist, the Superior Court dismissed the case over concerns that the party keeping the books was treated unfairly. Snyder vs. Snyder (April 20, 2022)

The unprecedented crime case, decided on May 25, follows a similar theme. The Crimis married in 1992 and separated 21 years later in 2013. The husband filed for divorce in 2017 according to the court’s opinion, although the case number still bears a number from 2009 while there had had a previous filing.

The parties had an antique business called Best of France, Inc. The husband owned 90% of it; female 10%. Interestingly, while the matter was pending, Husband closed Best of France and then reopened as Edmondo Crimi, LLC. He did so in April 2019.

We mentioned that the case had a 2009 case number. While notifying us that the 2009 case was withdrawn in August 2010 (fn. 1), the trial court notice describes a 2014 order whereby the parties agreed that inventories of Best of France’s then-existing assets would be made and photos of the antiquities taken, oddly enough, to keep the facts “in amber”. This apparently happened when the woman presented her inventory and the photos during the trial in 2021.

Five months after the divorce was filed (or perhaps better said “reclaimed”), the parties were back in court in June 2017 where the court ordered the husband to provide his wife with a revised/current inventory and the woman had to account for what she had “taken” from the business. The order was ignored, so the parties returned for another hearing where the judge again ordered them to do what she said and to update the case inventory monthly We don’t know if either order was complied with only that the case proceeded to a master hearing no record as of late summer 2020. Note that somehow the business called Best of France was shut down by her husband in April 2019 and reconstituted in his name as an LLC As expected, the captain’s recommendation was appealed and a trial de novo was scheduled.

After several days of trial over several months in early 2021, the trial court ordered the husband to pay $836,394 as “equitable repayment child support” in 6 annual installments of $139,399. The husband appealed.

The heart of the appeal is the husband’s claim that the trial court divided the company’s assets while ignoring $3,329,000 in trade debts, nearly half of which were owed to one person. Predictably, this person claimed to have a vested interest in the antiquities inventory. At trial, the husband argued that the business (Best of France or Crimi LLC?) was worth less ($1,000,000). The wife said the business was worth $2,100,000. Thus, a delta of $3 million in values.

While telling us there was no separation until 2013, the trial court finds that the husband began in 2012 to dump the value of the business by taking loans from someone named Chance Worthington. The wife said she had no knowledge of these loans. The trial court held that as a shareholder wife, she should have been informed of the debt and consented to it. He also notes that in 2017, as the parties wrangled over inventories, the husband settled a lawsuit brought by another antique dealer by borrowing money from Chance Worthington and giving him a guarantee in the entire Best of France “machinery, equipment, inventory and accounts”. was supposed to secure an obligation owed to Worthington since 2014. The connection between the 2014 debt and the 2012 debt owed to Worthington is unexplained. But, the trial court notes that the husband never made payments to the two creditors (Worthington and another named Shapiro) and that no loan documents were submitted to the court during the trial and that these debts have not been entered by the accountant on the company’s balance sheet. At the risk of boring me, I note that the husband asserted that Worthington had a guaranteed interest in the assets under New York law. One has to wonder when and how New York adopted “paperless” warranties. Further, how did the assets of Best of France pass into the hands of Crimi, LLC in 2019 without addressing the so-called outstanding security interests.

The notice informs us that there was also a plot of land. The husband stopped paying the mortgage and taxes on this property after the “separation”. The property was sold by the sheriff and the mortgagee took title. The resourceful Chance Worthington appeared and struck a deal to buy the property from the bank for $700,000. Chance was lucky enough to find a party to rent out his newly acquired property. The husband agreed to pay Worthington $6,000 a month in rent. That’s almost double what it would have cost her husband to borrow $700,000 when the foreclosure/lease agreement was made. The trial court found that the husband had paid the rent promptly and that at the time of the seizure, his bank statement demonstrated Wells Fargo’s ability to pay his monthly mortgage. This foreclosure and lease was expressly considered a dissipation deliberately intended to deprive the wife of an equitable distribution.

The appeal opinion ends smoothly. The trial court has made decisions on credibility and these are entitled to the “highest consideration”. The appeals court concluded that it had not seen any document conclusively showing that the debts to Worthington or Shapiro had actually been incurred before the separation. It also enforces an agreement that the wife would have made with her husband as a condition of their reconciliation. “We agreed that he would not do anything with the company without my knowledge and that it was mainly to take out loans, whether it was business or personal loans or business loans. No loan period without discussion and he accepted that.

The case also presents a curious analysis on the valuation of “inventories”. Although there were two court orders in 2017 regarding the creation of an inventory of the assets, neither party produced an expert opinion regarding the value of this property. In fact, the husband did not produce inventory at all, but said he relied on his records of his acquisition costs. Meanwhile, he also told the court that there was “no way” to track what was in the company’s inventory on the date of the separation. The wife offered the court photos of the property she claimed was inventory and provided 2014 values ​​for each item based on her “professional opinion”. His opinion was that the inventory had a wholesale value of $1,595,753. The trial court adopted these values ​​and rejected the husband’s argument that his stated acquisition costs should have been used instead, noting that he had not provided this information. The Court refers to the Forms 1125-A filed with the business returns and finds that they are consistent with the wife’s assessment. (Notice p. 20). The problem this writer sees with this reconciliation is that year-end inventory for tax years 2013 and 2014 never exceeded $457,000.

In the end, the case is sent back and for this, the trial court must receive sympathy. It appears that the fair reimbursement alimony included what amounted to arrears of a spousal support/PLA action. The Superior Court rightly notes that alimony/apl arrears constitute a type of indemnity. Equitable alimony is limited to situations where the distribution of “existing marital assets…would be insufficient to compensate the recipient spouse for their contributions to the marriage.” Johnson v. Johnson, 864 A.2d 1224, 1230 (Pa. Super, 2004). The appeal panel notes that the court identified and valued the matrimonial property based on the wife’s inventory. The husband argued that these assets were subject to security, but he provided no documentation demonstrating the loans or the effectiveness of the security. In the meantime, the court proposes that if the woman were to cohabit, the alimony could be lost. (Opinion p. 32) But isn’t the whole point of this “reimbursement alimony” to eliminate this risk? Section 3701 of the Divorce Code states that alimony is based on need and that need is deemed lost by cohabitation. 23 Pa.CS 3706. Equitable reimbursement is really not alimony because it is based on equity and not on need. This is a subject where judicial clarity is needed. Suppose a court in New York finds that the inventory is physically located within the jurisdiction of that state and that there is some sort of valid lien due to Worthington or Shapiro? Isn’t the wife still entitled to her share of what the Pennsylvania court has ruled to be unencumbered marital property? Equitable reimbursement may be his only recourse and cohabitation must not cause these rights to be lost. The Superior Court was right to dissociate support arrears from equitable reimbursement. But the court could and should have simply clarified in a modified order that $836,394 was an irrevocable fair refund and that the balance of pendente lite support due under the December 2019 order ($21,780 per page 3 of notice) was not changed by the final divorce judgment. and order.

This is a troubling case. It is full of important legal issues, none of which have been fully resolved. Like the recent Snyder case, this is also a case where a party effectively led the court and a spouse on a wild goose chase to find the assets. At 1,600 words, the reader has endured this post enough. But, what must be remembered is that the courts must have control over cases such as this. In a future blog, we will explore the remedies to achieve this.
