Marriage in the Time of Internet Ministers: I Now Pronounce You Married, But Who Am I To Do So?

I am proud to say that I have been cited as an authority in a law review article in the University of Miami Law Review (Volume 63, Number 3, April 2010) entitled Marriage in the Time of Internet Ministers: I Now Pronounce You Married, But Who Am I To Do So?  Specifically, check out footnote 222 of the aforesaid article which you can find here and you will see the cite to me and my article “I Now [Cannot] Pronounce You Man and Wife” (which you can see here).

The issue of both the law review article and my article centers on the Pennsylvania legal qualifications/criteria of/for someone who presides at weddings in Pennsylvania and who (or what sort of “clergy”) may or may not meet those qualifications.

Unemployment Cheats Raked in $16.5 Billion Last Year

I was quoted in the The Fiscal Times September 22, 2011 article Unemployment Cheats Raked in $16.5 Billion Last Year.

If you do not feel like reading the article, the nuggets of wisdom I shared were these (quoted directly from the article):

“Lying to the government is much easier when a person’s only contact with the state agency is online or on the telephone, Cushing said.  ‘It’s much easier to file things in a fraudulent way because the gatekeeper is even more compromised online.”’

and

“State unemployment agencies assume what a claimant says is true unless an employer objects, said James Cushing, a Pennsylvania attorney specializing in unemployment compensation.  ‘It’s not unusual for two or three months to go by where a claimant receives payments for benefits, and then at a referee’s hearing it gets determined that they were never eligible to begin with,”’ Cushing said.

Unemployed and Retired? You, too, Can Double Dip.

I was quoted in the The Fiscal Times August 17, 2011 article Unemployed and Retired?  You, Too, Can Double Dip.  

If you do not feel like reading the article, the nuggets of wisdom I shared were these (quoted directly from the article):  “There is no conflict between collecting a Social Security pension benefit and unemployment compensation at the same time as long as each agency is apprised of the income received from the other,” says James Cushing, a Pennsylvania lawyer specializing in unemployment compensation.
