THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

Though coronavirus hasn’t impacted fiduciary duties the way many of us expected, it has changed the way the law is applied. Rafael explains how defining fiduciary duty as a three place predicate makes fiduciary duty laws equally rigid and flexible that...

THE VALLEY CURRENT®️ COMPUTERLAW GROUP LLP

Sometimes the data just doesn’t make sense. The US is at 3.1 million covid infection cases, yet China, where the outbreak originated, is reporting only 90,000 cases. Absolute numbers do not tell the truth. What you need to look at are the number of cases and deaths in respect to the population (i.e. cases and deaths per 100,000 people). Other factors to consider is what is the definition of a case, who determines the cause of death and how accurate that information is. Jack Russo and Dr. Leonard Hayflick talk in greater depths about the massive way coronavirus has infected our population and...

The greatest risk factor for the leading cause of death is to ignore it. It’s not just words of wisdom from Dr. Hayflick, but the title of his new paper.

One could easily argue that the law is the law and standards should remain consistent. Jack Russo chats with Rafael Chodos about the differences between changes in the law and changes in required behavior to determine basic competency in this new environment.
