In June 2015 the owners of the Atlanta Hawks, led by Bruce Levenson, reported they had agreed to sell the NBA franchise to a consortium headed by Forbes billionaire technology executive Tony Ressler. Bruce Levenson and his fellow members of the Atlanta Hawks Basketball & Entertainment LLC consortium completed the sale of the franchise, yet are still looking to bring to a close all the aspects of their ownership of the one time winner of the NBA Championship.
Bruce Levenson and his consortium purchased the franchise in 2004 with the Hawks rooted at the foot of the NBA standings, over the course of the following decade Levenson led the franchise to the number one seed position at the close of the 2014-2015 regular season. Upon announcing their decision to sell the Hawks franchise Bruce Levenson began working with Goldman Sachs and Inner Circle Sports to broker a deal to sell the basketball team and the right to operate Phillips Arena.
The time spent at the Atlanta Hawks by Bruce Levenson was not only successful in sporting and business terms, but also included a series of successful philanthropic endeavors, including work with the Hoop Dreams charity and Make A Wish Foundation. Bruce Levenson also made sure the Hawks had a national and international presence when he led members of the playing and support staff on a visit to the U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington D.C. in 2014.
The termination of the contract of Danny Ferry forms the basis of the claim being made against AIG for breach of contract and insurance bad faith. Bruce Levenson’s legal team are hoping to complete a financial settlement with AIG in court that will include a 50 percent penalty after the insurance company refused to acknowledge the claim had even been made on the policy held by the Atlanta Hawks Basketball & Entertainment LLC consortium.

The Brazilian Bar, or Law Society, is called the Order of Lawyers of Brazil (OAB), and is the main regulatory body for the legal profession in Brazil. The OAB traces its roots to the beginnings of formal legal education in Brazil, which began in 1827 when the first law schools were established. Inspired by the Portuguese Institute of Lawyers, a Brazilian Institute of Lawyers, which served as a kind of guild or association, was established shortly thereafter, but the actual OAB as a quasi-governmental and regulatory body did not come into fruition until 1930, on the heels of a political revolution.
One of the main responsibilities of the OAB is the admission of new lawyers to the bar. Undergraduate law degrees in Brazil take five years, and recent graduates and final-year students can apply for admission, which requires passing a two-stage examination. The OAB exam is similar to exams required for attorney licensure in other countries, but has been standardized throughout the country for the last few years. Admission of attorneys to the bar in Brazil is by the state OAB section, although lawyers are permitted to represent clients in other jurisdictions on a limited basis.
Ricardo Tosto is a preeminent member of the OAB. Tosto is a partner in the law firm of Leite, Tosto, and Barros, and practices in a number of areas, such as credit repair, banking contracts, bankruptcy, appellate practice, business restructuring, administrative law, electoral law, as well as general civil and commercial practice. Tosto is a graduate of McKenzie University in Sao Paulo. Prior to entering private practice, he served as in-house counsel to Grupo Rede and as a director of the company’s private pension foundation.
Tosto is also active in his OAB section. He was chair of the OAB’s modernization and reform of the judiciary commission and is also a member of the International Bar Association. He is also the author of a book entitled “The Trial of Tiradentes,” about a pivotal event in Brazil history. He is one of the few Brazilian attorneys recognized by Who’s Who in commercial law, and has been ranked by publications such as Legal 500 and Analise 500.

Securus Technologies is a leading firm that provides top notch technology solutions the criminal and civil justice system use for investigations, monitoring, corrections and public safety. Not long ago, the Dallas based firm officially released a statement pinpointing and correcting misleading and inaccurate statements that Global Tel Link (GTL) had published in a press release as at June 7, 2016. The statement by Securus Technologies was well-designed to address specific inaccurate claims that were stated in the GTL’s press release.
Some of the Allegations
Securus Technologies disapproved Global Tel Link’s claim that United States Patent Trial and Appeals Board (PTAB) on patent number 7,256, 816, allowed GTL to move ahead and seek injunctions and damage against Securus Technologies, over the impeding infringement cases present in the prominent Federal Courts of Texas. However, Securus corrected the allegation by stating that the case in Texas Federal Court has overstayed and so Global Tel Link is presently unable to pursue their claims in a district court. Securus Technologies is taking a move for rehearing of the patent and this will put GTL in a position where it will not be able to seek further injunctions.
Additionally, GTL alleged that PTAB preserved all the 55 claims that protect its video monitoring technology. This feature is of great importance since it enables correction officers observe visitation between inmates and their families and friends. Securus on its press release clarified that PTAB initially declined the request to review the claims. However, GTL in reality asserts that only one independent claim and several other dependent claims. Securus Technologies strongly believes that GTL does no fully practice the fundamental and useful security feature.
Securus Technologies serves thousands of law enforcement, correction agencies and public safety in North America. These agencies rely in Securus for simple, powerful and secure technological solutions that are easy to use and readily accessible. With a team of trained professionals, this company’s technology is second to none.
