BoneLaw Attorneys to Represent Assault Victim vs Titan Players

Alex Little Attorney - Bone McAllester NortonAlex Little Attorney - Bone McAllester Norton

Bone McAllester Norton attorneys Alex Little and James A. Crumlin have filed suit in federal court in Nashville today on behalf of a crime victim as part of the firm’s victims’ representation practice. As reflected in the complaint linked below, the firm’s client was the victim of a brutal assault that involved two current members of the Tennessee Titans football team, Tajae Sharpe and Sebastian Tretola. As the complaint details, the victim was viciously assaulted and left unconscious in an alley; a bystander found him and called for medical help. The assault occurred on the evening of the First Round of the 2017 NFL Draft, after the Titans selected a wide receiver, and stemmed from Sharpe’s violent reaction to the victim’s suggestion that he would lose playing time. After the beating, the victim was transported to a nearby hospital, where he remained unconscious from more than 12 James A. Crumlin, Jr. Attorney - Bone McAllester NortonJames A. Crumlin, Jr. Attorney - Bone McAllester Nortonhours. He suffered extensive injuries including, but not limited to, broken bones in his face, massive facial bruising, and a perforated eardrum. The suit seeks to collect damages for medical expenses, physical and emotional pain and suffering, as well as current and potential future lost wages. A copy of the complaint and photos of some of the victim’s injuries can be found at this link.

Alex Little stated, “This case is not about the Tennessee Titans or the NFL. It’s about two individuals who, for no good reason, seriously injuring an innocent victim. We are seeking to hold them accountable for the harm they have caused.”

Bonelaw Case Profiled on ABC’s 20/20

Bone McAllester Norton client Sherry Smith’s story of her fight for justice for the death of her daughter Lauren Agee was the focus of a recent profile on 20/20, a news magazine which airs on ABC. Sherry’s story begins in July 2015 when her daughter Lauren Agee, 21 of Hendersonville, was found dead in Center Hill Lake. She had been camping with friends during Wakefest weekend. But then she allegedly goes missing during the night and her body is found floating late in the afternoon the next day. Her friends never reported her missing or called Lauren's family. Continued inconsistencies in the stories from those with Lauren prior to her disappearance along with their unwillingness to cooperate with investigating authorities, lead Lauren’s mom Sherry Smith to begin a yearlong independent investigation with the help of private investigator Sheila Wysocki who specializes in cold cases. In July 2016 Bonelaw’s Alex Little, on behalf of Sherry Smith, filed a $10 million dollar wrongful death the lawsuit against the individuals at the camp site claiming that her daughter was killed through the intentional, negligent, or reckless acts of the defendants. The case is still in progress led by Alex Little, along with Mandy Strickland Floyd.

Major news sources continue to seek out Bone McAllester Norton attorney Alex Little

Alex Little Attorney - Bone McAllester NortonAlex Little Attorney - Bone McAllester NortonMajor news sources continue to seek out Bone McAllester Norton attorney Alex Little for his knowledge and opinion on current legal topics. On Sunday, January 29, Little appeared on Fox News to discuss the recent emergency orders issued by federal judges that blocked deportation of airport detainees. Later that day, The Tennessean published an editorial Little wrote, which questioned the silence of Tennessee’s Senators in response to President Trump’s actions. Little, a former federal prosecutor and a member of Bonelaw’s Criminal Defense and Government Investigations practice, noted, “What is apparent is the administration issued this order with very little legal backing behind it and now they are going to have to get in front of a judge and sort of make up as they go what their legal arguments are.” After The Tennessean published Little’s editorial, Senators Alexander and Corker both issued statements about the executive order.

Ambassador Andrew Young delivers Keynote at 16th Annual Martin Luther King, Jr. Day Fellowship Breakfast.

Acclaimed leader returns to Nashville to discuss his experiences during the civil rights movement and challenged attendees to continue the push towards peace and justice throughout the world.

Nashville, Tenn. (January 17, 2017) - Nashville law firm Bone McAllester Norton PLLC recently hosted its 16th Annual Fellowship Breakfast honoring the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., with Ambassador Andrew Young serving as keynote speaker. The event has been held annually to celebrate Dr. King’s legacy.

A colleague and friend of Dr. King’s, Ambassador Young chairs the Andrew Young Foundation, is a former two-term mayor of Atlanta, Georgia Congressman, and U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations is a global statesman, and lifelong advocate of building collaborative partnerships across socioeconomic lines and using public policy to transform societies for the greater good.

“Nashville is a leading city, where I learned from the non-violent teachings of people here – citizens and students during the civil rights movement,” said Young. “It is wonderful to be back in Music City again to celebrate and honor my friend Dr. King, as well as discuss our country’s current political landscape.  We must be hopeful for our incoming administration, reach out to people who have opposing views and work together to heal our country.”

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry, welcomed Young during the program which also featured performances by The McCrary Sisters and Lawrence Thomison whose soulful sounds brought the audience to its feet.

In a post-event meeting, the two mayors had a chance to discuss Nashville, then and now, along with accepting a surprise call to Young from President-elect Donald Trump.

“I appreciated Ambassador Young giving me the opportunity to speak with President-elect Trump, and I intend to continue having an open dialogue with the Trump administration so that I may advocate for federal policies and programs that will keep Nashville moving forward,” said Mayor Megan Barry, the first female Mayor of Nashville. “Our city would not be where it is today without the vision, leadership and desire of people who came together to create a country that adopted tolerance and acceptance.”

Over 600 people attended the event, held at the Music City Center.

“We were honored to have Ambassador Young share his wealth of knowledge in pushing for a just society through his work with Dr. King, building a city or representing our country’s interests at an international level,” said Stacey Garrett Koju, founder and chairman of the board of directors for Bone. “The entire program - from the message to the music – was relevant, meaningful, and appropriate for us in multiple ways.”

Statement Of Counsel for Jane Doe

NASHVILLE, TN – In response to today’s decision by the Tennessee Supreme Court in The Tennessean, et al. v. Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County, et al., counsel for Jane Doe, Ed Yarbrough and Alex Little, have released the following statement:

“We are pleased by today’s decision. It provides a commonsense solution to most of the problems posed by The Tennessean’s ill-conceived effort to publish evidence in a pending criminal case. We argued that courts should protect the confidentiality of crime victims, and this decision helps accomplish that goal. But the nature and scope of victims’ rights in Tennessee remain unclear, and our client was disappointed that the Court avoided these critical questions. Crime victims in Tennessee should be able to pursue justice without subjecting themselves to abuse, intimidation, and harassment. To the extent this decision helps victims do so, it is an important step forward.”

Ed Yarbrough & Alex Little Urge Tennessee Supreme Court to Protect Victims’ Rights

A Tennessee Supreme Court case could determine the scope of the state’s public records law, and Bonelaw attorneys Edward M. Yarbrough and Alex Little argued against disclosure of such records. They represent the victim in the highly publicized Vanderbilt rape case. Last year, a conglomeration of media outlets in the state argued for access to records reviewed in the police investigation in that case. The government said laws regarding procedure in criminal courts and victims’ privacy laws keep those records shielded from public release. Yarbrough and Little are advocating for protection of victims in criminal cases.

The Tennessean covered this hearing in a story posted last night. Read more here.

Wall Street Journal Covers Ed Yarbrough and Alex Little’s Victory in FDA Drug Misbranding Case

A Tennessee doctor and his wife who ran cancer clinics in East Tennessee and were charged with receiving misbranded drugs have had their jury convictions vacated, thanks to the efforts of Bonelaw attorneys Edward M. Yarbrough and Alex Little. The Justice Department informed the lawyers last night that it would not proceed with the prosecution of the defendants.

Dr. Anindya Kumar Sen and his wife, Patricia Posey Sen, were found guilty at trial of introducing misbranded drugs into interstate commerce, which is a misdemeanor. The Sens had argued that they were deceived by a foreign distributor posing as a U.S. company. Although the jury acquitted Mrs. Sen of all felony charges, it returned misdemeanor convictions against the couple after the district court instructed it that the government need not “prove that a defendant was aware of . . . or . . . intended any wrongful or illegal act.” Dr. Sen and Mrs. Sen appealed the verdicts, and their appeal was pending when the Justice Department sought to dismiss the case.

This appeal is believed to be the first in a prosecution of this type.

The Wall Street Journal has more on the case here.

Alex Little Weighs in on Drone Memo that Justifies Killing of American Islamic Militant

Bone McAllester Norton attorney Alex Little appeared on FOX News yesterday in a story on the release of a memo formally acknowledging the CIA’s role in a drone program that resulted in the 2011 killing of an American Islamic militant. Talking to anchor Shepard Smith, Alex commented on how the U.S. government justified the killing of Anwar al-Awlaki without due process of law. “They justify it predominately under the theory that he’s an enemy, we’re at war, and we can kill enemies at war. That’s the base motivation that’s going on behind this memo.” They discussed possible concerns over a government making exceptions to the legal course in the future, based on this occurrence.

Alex Little Discusses Murder Trial of Michael Dunn with Fox News

Bone McAllester Norton attorney Alex Little talked with Fox News anchor Jamie Colby this weekend about the continuation of jury deliberations in the Michael Dunn murder trial. Dunn was found guilty of attempted second-degree murder Saturday, but the jury was partially hung on the murder decision against him in the death of 17-year-old Jordan Davis. Citing self-defense, Dunn testified that the teenager threatened him and that he thought he saw a gun in the SUV Davis and his friends were driving.

“Self-defense cases are incredibly difficult because the instructions are complex, and I think jurors tend to think of themselves more in the place of the defendant in a self-defense case than in any other time...because you wonder what you would do in a similar situation. You’ve got 12 people in there, and you’ve got to convince all 12 beyond a reasonable doubt that he didn’t act in self-defense, and that can be very difficult to do,” he said.

Alex Little Discusses Latest on Amanda Knox with MSNBC

This weekend, Bone McAllester Norton attorney Alex Little discussed the ongoing case against Amanda Knox, found guilty again by an Italian court for the murder of her roommate in 2007, with MSNBC. He discussed the complications surrounding this international case on Friday, and on Saturday, he talked about her possible extradition process, a mixture of diplomacy and law.

“One of the things I think is frustrating about this particular case to folks in the United States is we value finality. The way that we do trials is very different. There is one trial. There may be appeals, but there is only one trial. In Italy, it is very different. The appellate process is much more drawn out, and I think we are seeing some of the benefits in the United States of our system. . .This roller coaster must be impossible,” he told MSNBC’s Alex Witt.

FOX News Talks to Alex Little about Facebook Privacy Lawsuit

Bone McAllester Norton attorney Alex Little appeared on FOX News’ Shepard Smith Reporting Friday, talking about a California federal lawsuit against Facebook for reading users’ private messages. The class-action lawsuit claims Facebook scanned links sent in messages and shared that information with advertisers, violating state and federal privacy laws. Little, former Assistant U.S. Attorney and a member of Bonelaw’s Criminal Defense and Government Investigations practice, “The lawsuit is very explicit that Facebook relied repeatedly on the affirmation that what you want share privately, you can share privately, and at the same time, they went in there and accessed those messages to find out stuff about you. That disconnect is one of the reasons why they are being sued under California state law for unfair trade practice.”

FOX News Interviews Alex Little about Thieves Using Credit Card Skimmers to Steal Information

FOX News’ Shepard Smith interviewed Bone McAllester Norton Alex Little last week about scammers using a small device that looks like computer hardware to steal credit card information. Thieves are placing the devices into computer ports on cash registers, which scan every detail being done on that port, including processing credit cards.

“Most likely, they’re not gonna use that themselves. They are going to sell that credit card number on the Internet to somebody else,” he told Smith. “You really have an obligation at the end of every month to check your bill very closely.”
