    Tuesday May 12 | via Boston.com 

    A $5 million reward for masterworks stolen from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum a quarter century ago has failed to lead to their recovery, prompting authorities Tuesday to announce a new offer: $100,000 for the return of one of the least valuable items, a bronze eagle finial. The reward far exceeds the value of the 10-inch-high gilded bronze eagle, which was swiped from the top of a pole supporting a silk Napoleonic flag and taken along with 12 other pieces valued at $500 million, including masterpieces by Vermeer and Rembrandt, in what remains the world's largest art heist.

    Monday Apr 27 | via AmmoLand 

    On April 24 2015, The Hill ran a column explaining that Hillary Clinton may not outline her strong support for more gun control until the presidential election is over. In other words, Hillary may not mention her support for expanded background checks, an "assault weapons " ban, and a gun registry, on the campaign trail, but these things will become paramount if she is able to win because; According to The Hill , mentioning gun control carries new political perils after six years with Obama in office-one of which is the fact that a clear majority Americans now support gun rights over gun control and another is the unprecedented expansion of female involvement shooting sports.

Question about a DUI and criminal record
Let's say in Connecticut that someone is arrested for a DUI. They go to their arraignment and the DUI is dismissed the but moving violation they received along with the DUI was nolled. Does that mean, according the the Erasure Law, that the charge is completely off the record after 20 days and nobody, such as potential employers, can see it? The ticket, as I understand, will be active for 13 months.
You are correct the dismissal will take 20 days to enter, while the nolle will take 13 months to drop off

License suspension from 1998. Mandatory appearance required. What sort of penalties am I looking at?
In 1998, I was arrested for DUI. I was convicted, and ordered to pay a fine and complete a driver education course. I paid the fine, but was unable to complete the course as I had moved to California. I received a notice recently from the CA DMV informing me that my CA driver's license would be suspended, because CT had reported me to the PDPS. I called the CT DMV and they told me that the court in Manchester, CT had issued the suspension. The clerk told me that the judge had issued a bench warrant in 2000 for failing to complete the course, which was vacated in 2005 and converted to a license suspension. The clerk told me that an in-person appearance was mandatory, and would not tell me what sort of fines and penalties I would have to pay. Do I have to appear, and what am I looking at?
You should contact a local attorney in the area to see if that attorney can appear for you and instead of you!
So, I spend hours and hours in depositions, with 8 titanium screws and a plate from a drunk driver, so the lawyer gets money?
My insurance was ANTHEM, After I became disabled due to an under insured drunk driver, suddenly my primary insurance changed to MEDICARE. The attorney got his $33,333.33 and now I owe an additional $8,000.00 on top of the $63,000.00 I received for my new bionic neck. WHY IS THAT FAIR? Had I known I was filing a lawsuit, just for the attorney to profit, I would have done nothing. It really seems stupid that the attorneys fee is not diminished since I am now in the red. He NEVER told me this was going to happen. Does he not have a duty to tell me this from the beginning?
I assume you signed a fee agreement with the attorney. If the fee agreement provided attorney fees of 1/3, and he...
