What They Said. . .

first_img“As a fellow member of the Bar, I rise to speak in favor of this good bill. We have a great civil justice system in our state. But our job in the legislative branch is to define the rules on things just like this.. . . This bill is about ensuring fair and blind justice in our civil justice system.” – Rep. Dean Cannon, R-Winter Park “To characterize as a victim a multi-million-dollar, multi-billion-dollar organization with liability insurance coverage is an insult to the people we come here to represent.” – Rep. Curtis Richardson, D-Tallahassee “I applaud our speaker in his honest and sincere belief that the last vestiges of joint and several liability represent a remnant of a distant past where other rules were in play and created an unlevel playing field. I honestly believe in my heart, after talking with the speaker, and intellectually going back and forth on our different perspectives, that he believes this bill is a good bill; it’s good law to help level that playing field.” – Rep. Kevin Ambler, R-Tampa What They Said. . . “What we really have is an imagined legal crisis with joint and several liability. I’ve heard slogans thrown around like ‘judicial hellhole,’ and special interests tell us that we do not have a favorable business climate because of lawsuits. Actually, I think it is exactly the opposite. I listened to the governor and when he had his State of the State address, in no uncertain terms, he told us that we have a robust business environment.” – Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Dania Beach “What this bill does is what the Supreme Court suggested we do in the state of Florida some 30 years ago in the Hoffman case, and that is move to a comparative fault system.. . . ” – Rep. Dennis Ross, R-Lakeland April 15, 2006 Regular News “This is not corporate America’s bill. This is every defendant’s fairness bill.. . . The victims are those that are being required to pay more than they should. We did not decide and have never decided that we will have a socialist, welfare tort system. We decided we were going to have a fair and equitable tort system. And equitable means you pay in accordance with what your responsibility is for occurrence.” – Rep. Joe Pickens, R-Palatka “I am very concerned about the effect this legislation would have on Florida’s low-income families and communities.. . . How can we legitimately ask our state’s citizens to live up to a higher standard of personal responsibility if we aren’t going to tell our corporations and industries that we expect them to do the same? The answer is simple. The answer is we cannot.” – Rep. Arthenia Joyner, D-Tampa W hat They Said.. . “[W]ithout having put that Fabre fix in, you are victimizing people twice. You are victimizing your neighbors and your constituents, and my neighbors and my constituents. I suggest we don’t do that in the Florida House.” – Rep. Jack Seiler, D-Pompano Beach last_img read more


Dann accepts blame for Villa winner

first_img Press Association Dann’s positional misjudgement gifted Belgium strker Benteke the chance to fire the winner in Villa’s 1-0 Premier League victory at Palace on Tuesday night. The in-form defender has been touted for an England call, with boss Neil Warnock hailing him Palace’s “outstanding player” this term. Scott Dann has admitted he will never win an England call-up if he keeps giving away soft goals like Christian Benteke’s strike that consigned Crystal Palace to Aston Villa defeat. Benteke’s first goal after nine months battling knee surgery ended Villa’s nine-game winless streak, but dragged Palace back into the relegation mire. “It’s nice for people to talk about you in that way,” said Dann of calls for him to earn England recognition. “But as a professional you just get on with your job: I have just got to concentrate on my club form and make sure I don’t many any more mistakes like that. “The more consistent I can be for Palace, the more chance I have got. It is just a case of trying to keep improving and to keep doing the best I can.” Former Blackburn defender Dann raced out of his central position in Tuesday’s Villa clash to chase a lumped ball to the wing, but dallied when he should have booted out of play. Benteke raced in, picked his pocket, headed infield and side-footed past the helpless Julian Speroni, with Brede Hangeland backing off and handing him too much time and space to complete his finish. Palace boss Warnock admitted his defender should have “kicked it over the stand and not been ashamed”, and Dann has accepted responsibility for the goal. That solitary strike proved the winner on a low-quality night, with Palace wasting half-chance after half-chance in a frustrating night for manager Warnock. The otherwise-composed Dann offered a candid assessment of his costly error, pledging to sharpen back up. “Obviously I am disappointed to give the ball away there, it is uncharacteristic for me,” he said. “Ninety-nine times out of 100 I would clear that down the line so that, even if you do lose the ball, they will not go on to score. “But things like that happen in football and you have to learn from your mistakes, get on with it and take the rough with the smooth.” Palace have now slipped to five defeats in eight games and Dann admitted Warnock’s men face a tough challenge to hit back to form in Saturday’s league clash at Tottenham. “It is always a tough game at White Hart Lane,” said Dann. “They are a big club and have got a lot of top players. “They have just started picking up results but we need to sharpen up in the final third. “It is hard to take because we had a lot of the ball and had a lot of chances. “We probably should have put some of them away. We played well and dominated the game and they did not have many chances at all. “Even when we went a goal down I thought we looked in control and looked like we could have scored. “We got the ball into crossing positions but just could not get it right.” last_img read more
