Bone McAllester Norton Gives Back to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee

Nashville Firm Donated Nearly 400 Pounds of Food Today as Part of “Hunger Action Month”

Nashville, Tenn.—(October 1, 2014) Nashville-based law firm Bone McAllester Norton PLLC donated nearly 400 pounds of food to Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee today as part of “Hunger Action Month.” The firm, founded in 2002, has always had a strong commitment to serving the local community, and in September, attorneys and staff members joined together to donate canned goods and non-perishable food items for the cause.

“More than 110,000 of our neighbors, our friends and people we see every day here in Davidson County are affected by hunger,” said Sam J. McAllester III, vice chairman and member of Bone McAllester Norton. “Everyone at our firm is committed to giving back to our community, and this was something we were proud to participate in.”

On every Friday in September, attorneys and staff members were encouraged to donate food. Boxes were quickly filled, and the reward was an immediate sense of helping someone else in need.

Bone McAllester Norton supports a wide range of community programs and activities, striving to make its culture synonymous with good works for clients and the community. Joining together with the food bank to provide hope for others was something that made perfect sense, McAllester said.

Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee is one of the largest and most comprehensive of more than 200 food banks and food distribution centers nationwide. During the last fiscal year, the organization provided 23 million meals to hungry children, families and seniors throughout the mid-state. Its mission is to feed hungry people and work to solve hunger issues in the community.

Bonelaw’s Alcoholic Beverage Attorneys Weigh in on Confusion of Tennessee’s Liquor Laws

William T. Cheek III and Robert D. Pinson, of Bone McAllester Norton’s Alcoholic Beverage Law practice, are featured in an article on MetroPulse.com regarding the confusion of liquor laws in Tennessee. Title 57 outlines the state’s mandates on all things alcohol-related, and, as the article points out, anyone in the industry finds the rules confusing, contradictory and in need of a redo.

“I would love to rewrite all of Title 57,” Pinson told the reporter. “I think that’s something that a lot of people want, but no one wants to do the work.” One area in particular that needs a revise, Pinson said, is the Tennessee Alcoholic Beverage Commission’s budget. “If they had more staff, there wouldn’t just be more enforcement, they could offer more education so maybe there would be less confusion over some of these laws.”

Nashville Scene Reviews Smokin Thighs

The Nashville Scene’s Chris Chamberlain visited one of Bonelaw’s clients last week and chimed in on what all the hype is about. Smokin Thighs, which has had tremendous success as a food truck venture, has opened a brick-and-mortar location at 611 Wedgewood Ave., and as Chamberlain noted, they are on fire. Smoked chicken is the staple on the menu, prepared various ways and served alongside mac-and-cheese, corn and other non-fried side dishes. Diners can enjoy thighs, wings and legs with an assortment of sauces and rubs. In addition, the owner has added a few new items to the menu, including chicken burgers, a chicken wedge salad, a loaded baked potato salad and chicken nachos. Smokin Thighs currently serves high-gravity beers and liquor, and the firm’s Alcoholic Beverage Law practice is working to secure the appropriate permit for them to serve regular beer.

Doing Business with Foreign Suppliers or Manufacturers? Beware Their Illegal Practices

By Bryan E. Pieper

Yesterday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals held that Nestle, Archer Daniels Midland and other companies that sell chocolate from Africa can be sued for importing cocoa harvested by child slave laborers in the Ivory Coast. Three former child slave laborers sued the defendant food manufacturers for allegedly using and selling the product of their slave labor, under a 1789 law allowing suits in U.S. courts for violations of international human rights.

The trial court dismissed the lawsuit, holding that the law did not apply to the defendant U.S. corporations’ alleged involvement in the illegal activities that occurred abroad. The Court of Appeals disagreed, holding that they could be sued in U.S. courts if their actions in the U.S. substantially contributed to human rights violations overseas.

The defendant companies argued that they were simply searching for the cheapest sources of cocoa. Writing for the dissent, Judge Johnnie Rawlinson agreed, arguing that the U.S. companies should not be held liable to the former child slave laborers for the abuse done to them by companies in Africa because the lawsuit did not show that the U.S. companies “acted with the purpose of aiding and abetting child slave labor.” Rather, their motive was merely to increase profits by obtaining cocoa from the cheapest source available.

The majority rejected this argument and reinstated the case, arguing that the defendant companies knew the suppliers were using child slave labor but did nothing to end it or even to stop using those sources. Writing for the majority, Judge Dorothy Nelson argued that the plaintiffs’ allegations were sufficient to establish that the defendant companies willingly accepted the benefits of slave labor, writing “Driven by the goal to reduce costs in any way possible, the defendants allegedly supported the use of child slavery, the cheapest form of labor available,” and that they “placed increased revenues before basic human welfare.”

Attorney Liens: Because Every Lawyer Should Get Paid

I talk a lot about liens as a good way for a creditor to get paid. In state courts and bankruptcy courts, there often are two lines formed: one for those with liens, and the other for those without liens. And you can guess which one leads to the money.

Under Tennessee statutes, there are liens for all kinds of people: mechanics, artisans; dentists; jewelers; shoe repairers; cotton ginners; lithographers; baggage claim folks...just to name a few.

But let's talk about attorney liens today.

Under Tenn. Code Ann. § 23-2-102, an attorney who files a lawsuit "shall have a lien upon the plaintiff's or complainant's right of action from the date of the filing of the suit." (Or, per Tenn. Code Ann.  § 23-2-103, the attorney has a lien from the date that the attorney starts work on the case.)

This lien extends to two types of property. The first is a "retaining lien," which gives the attorney the right to retain a client's books, papers, or money coming into his possession during the matter until the client pays. The second is a "charging lien," which is a lien for payment of fees against the judgment or recovery obtained in a case. For a good review of this, see Starks v. Browning, 20 S.W.3d 645, 650 (Tenn. Ct. App. 1999).
There's some old caselaw out there that suggests that the attorney must have the lien noted in the Judgment to be valid. The Starks case above (involving the venerable Nashville lawyer, Bart Durham) says that requirement is not in the statute and is just an odd creation from old caselaw.
 
But, I say that it's a good practice to note the attorney lien any- and every-where (in judgments, in notices filed with the Court, notices recorded in the Register's Office), but it's not legally required.
 
The statutes above don't cover all situations where an attorney might have a lien; in fact, other specific statutes, like worker's compensation matters, may have their own special rules. Additionally, nothing would stop a collection minded lawyer from obtaining a consensual lien as part of his or her client engagement documents, particularly where client resources may eventually be scarce.
 
Long story short, the attorney lien statutes are probably narrower than you thought they were, granting a lien generally only the lawsuit filed by the attorney. Any other, broader liens to secure repayment must be granted or taken under other statutes (judgment liens, consensual liens).

 

Local Chefs Say Farm to Table Movement is Not Just a Fad

Bone McAllester Norton’s Alcoholic Beverage Law practice works with many of Nashville’s farm to table restaurants, including Sunset Grille, Farm House, Adele’s, Table 3, Fido, Bongo Java and Husk. The Tennessean interviewed several chefs, owners and farm supporters in a story about the movement that brings local meats, cheeses, milk and vegetables to restaurant tables across the mid-state. Farm to table may be a movement that consumers are fatiguing of, but supporters say the need to know where food comes from is not a fad and is something they are working to continue and improve.
