Five Months Without Regular Heads For NCLAT & NCLT

The Centre appointed Justice (Retd.) Bansi Lal Bhat, Member (Judicial) as officiating Chairperson with effect from March 15, 2020. This appointment was supposed to last for a period of three months or until further orders or until a regular Chairperson was appointed, whichever came earlier. However, on June 15, 2020 this appointment was further extended on similar conditions as the previous notification. This appointment is under challenge through a Writ Petition Fozia Rahman v. Union of India [W.P.(C) 3536/2020] before the Delhi High Court for not complying with §415 of the Companies Act, 2013 read with Rule 10(1) of the Tribunal, Appellate Tribunal, and other Authorities (Qualifications, Experience and other Conditions of Service of Members) Rules, 2020 (“Tribunal Rules, 2020”). The ground for the petition is that the Centre did not appoint the “senior-most member” as the Acting or Officiating Chairperson. The Petition read: “Whereas Justice (Retd.) Shri Bansi Lal Bhat was appointed as Judicial Member on 17.10.2017, Hon’ble Mr. Balvinder Singh, Member (Technical) was appointed on 01.07.2016 and Hon’ble Mr. Justice A.I.S. Cheema, Member (Judicial) was appointed on 11.09.2017 and are both members holding greater seniority.” The Delhi High Court has issued notices [Read here, here and here] in the matter and having given time to the Respondents to file Reply, the next date of hearing is scheduled for August 28, 2020. The easiest way to end this uncomfortable litigation is to appoint a full time Chairperson. The requirement of immediate filling the post not being fulfilled, even after initiation of such a level of litigation, suggests that the Central Government is still looking for a suitable candidate who is retiring from the Supreme Court or from some High Courts. The Tribunal Rules, 2020 were notified in pursuance of §184 of Finance Act, 2017. The NCLAT constituted under Chapter XXVII, §410 of the Companies Act, 2013 has wide powers. It is eligible to hear appeals in matters under the Companies Act, 2013 from the National Company Law Tribunal (“NCLT”) (§421); under Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code, 2016 from the NCLT (§61) and the Insolvency and Bankruptcy Board of India (§202 and §211). Since the amendment through Finance Act, 2017, it has also acted as the appellate authority to hear appeals from Competition Commission of India under §53A of the Competition Act, 2002, having replaced Competition Appellate Tribunal. In Roger Mathew v. South India Bank Ltd. (2019) the Supreme Court had noted that the judicial appointments must be free from the influence of the executive so that the constitutional spirit of independence of the judiciary could be maintained (¶157). Accordingly, the Tribunal Rules, 2020 took into account these factors and prescribed in Rules 3 and 4 that the eligibility conditions and the method of appointment of the Chairperson of Tribunals respectively, would be in the manner provided in the Schedule. Entry 13 in the Schedule provides that for the NCLAT: “The Chairperson shall be a person who is or has been a Judge of the Supreme Court or the Chief Justice of a High Court.” “Search-Cum-Selection Committee for the post of Chairperson Judicial Member and Technical Member [comprises] – (i) Chief Justice of India or any Judge of the Supreme Court nominated by him -chairperson; (ii) (a) in case of appointment of Chairperson, the Outgoing Chairperson of the National Company Law Appellate Tribunal – member.” It may be noted that in the past 3 years (since 2017), 16 judges of the Supreme Court have retired. Similarly, a number of Chief Justices of the High Courts are also available for appointment as Chairperson. Surprisingly, however, for the post-retirement appointment of Chairperson of NCLAT, no information about a Search-cum-Selection Committee or a shortlist of candidates has been circulated in the public domain. Incidentally, the NCLT has also been suffering a similar fate with Acting President’s term being continually extended. Since a lot of controversy exists as to the ‘post retirement appointment’ of Judges, highlighted by none than the late Law Minister and Senior Advocate Arun Jaitley, there needs to be a transparent method of appointment. A fair procedure for selection of the candidates and appointment is necessary to dispel the popular allegation that such appointments are given away by the political executive to their preferred personalities. Since NCLT and NCLAT discharge a large amount of judicial functions, and the appeals from NCLAT lie to the Supreme Court directly, independence of the judiciary can be secured only if the selected candidates have impeccable integrity, with a history of discharging judicial functions without any fear or favour.Views are personal only.

Byrd Drug Company as been a business icon on the square for 70 years and is a place of destination for those who want to “come home again.”“We have many customers who have moved away and come to back to Byrd’s with their families,” Evelyn Watson said. “We’ll hear them say, ‘This is the place I told you about.’ They’ll usually get a chicken salad sandwich and a chocolate milkshake.”Coming back to Byrd’s is like coming home for many people who have called Troy and Pike County home. At 70 years and counting, there are few people who remember a time when Byrd’s was not “on the corner.” Skip Hollan’s business flourished for the next several years and his son, W.L. Hollan, worked in the store. They had several doctors with offices in their store on the north side of the square in A. St. Clair Tennille’s building.After several parnerships, J.W. Hollan’s drug store settled in on the north east corner of the square around 1898.In 1904, at the age of 52, Hollan reorganized his store and brought in his 20-year-old son, Will and his son-in-law, M.A. Ellison as partners. The new firm was known as Hollan-Ellison Drug Company.“In 1915 Will Hollan purchased the beautiful soda fountain of the C.B. Goldthwaite Pharmacy which had just closed,” Watson said. Since Hollan was not a pharmacist, he had to hire them. Delivery service was provided by all the drugstores so they got together on the rules: One free delivery each day at 4 p.m., all special deliveries cost five cents and all stores closed at 9 p.m. except on Saturday.”The drug stores that agreed with this plan in 1918 were Sam Williams, Herbert McLeod, W.L. Hollan, A.L. Crouch, and Walter Walters.Walter Walters graduated from Auburn’s School of Pharmacy in 1906 and worked several years for Sam Williams. Then he went into business for himself when he bought Folmar Drugs in1916. It became Johnston Brothers in 1920 and Walters worked for them.“But he wanted his own store again and on Hollan’s Corner. Walters purchased the drug business of W.L. Hollan in 1923 but did not make a go of it for the second time,” Waston said. “Walter Walters was mayor of Troy in 1932 and his energies were diverted during this period of time. Will Hollan reluctantly had to take back the drug store. Hollan’s Corner reopened in June 1932 on a strictly cash basis.”With young Marvin Byrd, behind the counter, history was in the making. No one had any idea that it would be Byrd would would create a “drug store legacy” in Troy that would be carried on by his daughter and son-in-law.Marvin and Frances Byrd worked as a team to make Byrd Drug a success. She made the chicken salad and pimento cheese and he ran the pharmacy.“I remember we had chicken in a pen in our backyard on Walnut Street,” Watson said. “Talk about fresh chicken salad.”Watson said her dad was a fine, hard-working man with an incredible work ethic. “Daddy loved people,” Watson said. “He was open six-and-a-half days a week and rarely took a vacation.” All four of the Byrd daughters grew up working in the drug store. “I should say drug stores,” Watson said. “In 1945, Daddy opened a second store, Byrd Watters, on North 3 Notch in the Masonic Building. It had been the Princess Theater. Later the teenage canteen was on the second floor. He owned two stores for fifteen years and sold Byrd Watters, which is now Synco Drugstore, in 1960.”Watson said that Byrd was a good man to work for and his employees stayed with him for many, many years. “The soda fountain served wonderful hot vegetable lunches as well as our now famous chicken salad sandwiches and homemade potato salad, ice cream sodas, milkshakes, and banana splits,” Watson said.Joe and Evelyn Watson met at Auburn University in 1963. “During breaks, I worked with Daddy at Byrd Drug and Joe often visited me at the drug store,” Evelyn Waston said. “Joe was drawn to the friendly atmosphere and charm of an old fashioned drugstore. He was there so much Daddy soon put him to work. He demonstrated how important a strong work ethic and friendly service were important to customers He was there to serve them. Joe was so impressed that by the fall of 1964 he changed his major to pharmacy.”From that time on Joe and Evelyn worked every holiday break and summer at Byrd Drugs. They married in 1968. “It was during Joe’s final internship at Byrd Drug that Daddy died of a heart attack and Joe had the unexpected opportunity to buy the drug store from the family,” Watson said. “On Feb. 14, 1968, at age 24, Joe and I purchased Byrd Drug Company.“In 1969 we bought the building from the Hollans. We have now owned the store 42 years. And it has been in the same family, the same location, with the same name for 70 years. Most of our employees work wih us from 15 to 40 years or until they retire. Many of our customers have been with us for 40 years or more.“Marvin Byrd, J.W. Hollan, Will Hollan and Walter Walters would be proud,” Watson said. “I know Joe and I are.” Sponsored Content Print Article Latest Stories By The Penny Hoarder Email the author “My daddy, Marvin Byrd, came to Troy to work for Sam Williams in 1926,” Watson said. “He had worked in a drugstore in Mobile as a youth and became interested in pharmacy.”Byrd graduated from Struby’s School of Pharmacy in Macon, Ga., at age 23. He worked for Williams and then Herbert McLeod lured him away.“It was during this time that Daddy met my mother Frances Gulledge from Verbena,” Watson said. “She had come to Troy to teach at Troy High School. They got married in 1935.” Building the legacy Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day By Jaine Treadwell Published 9:46 pm Friday, February 18, 2011 You Might Like Welcome to Wally’s world Wally Lowery, above, has been painting since 1993.

Hollan who came from Elba to Troy in 1878 to work as a salesman for Dr. A. St. Clair Tennille, who had a drug store on the north side of the square.After five years of learning the ropes with Tennille, Hollan opened his own store on the south side of the square.“Hollan developed some of his own medicines … one of which was Hollan’s Tablets which he promised would quickly relieve neuralgia, headache, and rheumatism,” Watson said. “Drugstores sold everything imaginable. In 1894, Hollan advertised window glass for those people that were building homes as well as sets of genuine pearls. In 1895, he added Hollan’s Diarrhea Remedy to his line of special drugs.”Hollan gained exclusive rights to manufacture and sell the famous Tennille’s Pills in 1896 but lost it to Sam Williams in 1900.

Feds stop processing migrants at Texas border center after 32 test positive for flu


first_imgwingedwolf/iStock(MCALLEN, Texas) — U.S. Customs and Border Protection has stopped taking in undocumented migrants at a border processing center in McAllen, Texas, after 32 people being held there tested positive for the flu.The center is one of the busiest spots along the Mexico border and a short drive to a Border Patrol station where a 16-year-old boy died earlier this week.CBP hasn’t said how many people have grown ill or where new migrants arriving at that part of the border will be sent. The agency said medical staff were on hand to treat people who were ill. “To avoid the spread of illness, the Rio Grande Valley Sector has temporarily suspended intake operations” at the Central Processing Center in McAllen, the agency said in a statement. “Individuals apprehended in RGV Sector will be held at other locations until this situation is resolved,” the agency added. An earlier proposal to fly migrants to U.S. border stations in coastal or northern states, including Florida, in a bid to lessen the burden at sites like McAllen was scrapped last week after the White House intervened and President Donald Trump declared via Twitter that no more undocumented migrants would be allowed past the southern border. The law requires that border authorities process migrants seeking asylum, and a federal judge has limited detention for children.The latest death of a child in custody was a teen who appears to have been traveling without his parents. CBP said he had been waiting at a U.S. Border Patrol station outside of McAllen, Texas, to get picked up by the Department of Health and Human Services when he was found unresponsive on Monday. He had been in government custody for a week waiting to be transferred to HHS, which overseas care for “unaccompanied” migrant minors. He was the third migrant minor to have spent time in U.S. custody in the past month, and the fifth child to die in six months.Acting Homeland Secretary Kevin McAleenan was scheduled to testify on Capitol Hill on Wednesday. Democrats, who identified the teen as Carlos Gregorio Hernandez Vasquez, have already called for an investigation.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

We’re looking forward to the multi-national engagement with our Central and South American and Caribbean nation hosts,” Mirisola said.Formally known as the Partnership of the Americas, Southern Seas gives a distinct name to one of the United States’ marquee deployments. This is the seventh such deployment and falls under U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command and U.S. 4th Fleet (COMUSNAVSO/C4F) Partnership of the Americas initiative.“There’s no better way for Underwood to deploy than to support Southern Seas and UNITAS. This is the United States’ longest standing annual exercise and the crown jewel of naval exercises for the U.S. Navy. There’s no better way to end the ship’s service life than to finish with UNITAS deployment,” said Mirisola.Underwood will return to Mayport in November 2012 and be decommissioned in March 2013. The Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigate was commissioned January 29, 1983 and conducted her maiden deployment in 1985. Underwood participated in numerous counter-narcotics operations in the Caribbean Sea in her 29 years of service to the fleet.After the devastating earthquake in Haiti, Underwood and her crew deployed immediately to the island and provided critical medical assistance in support of Operation Unified Response.U.S. Naval Forces Southern Command and U.S. 4th Fleet (COMUSNAVSO/C4F) supports U.S. Southern Command joint and combined full-spectrum military operations by providing principally sea-based, forward presence to ensure freedom of maneuver in the maritime domain, to foster and sustain cooperative relationships with international partners and to fully exploit the sea as maneuver space in order to enhance regional security and promote peace, stability, and prosperity in the Caribbean, Central and South American regions.[mappress]Naval Today Staff , April 25, 2012; Image: navy View post tag: Departs View post tag: USS View post tag: Final April 25, 2012 Training & Education Share this article Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Underwood Departs on Final Deployment USS Underwood Departs on Final Deployment View post tag: Navy View post tag: Deploymentlast_img read more
