Ex-NBA star Dwyane Wade’s daughter Zaya, 15, finalizes legal transition and name changeEx-NBA star Dwyane Wade’s daughter Zaya, 15, finalizes legal transition and name change

The daughter of former NBA star Dwyane Wade has finalized her legal transition after a Los Angeles judge granted her petition to legally change her name and update her gender marker on identification documents.

The 15-year-old, who came out as trans at the age of 12, has been using the name Zaya since 2020.

Her legal name is now Zaya Malachi Airamis Wade, according to a ruling filed Friday in Los Angeles and reviewed by People.

Dwyane Wade has been a vocal supporter of his young trans daughter ever since she told him and his wife, Hollywood star Gabrielle Union,

London Borough of Merton Council v Nuffield Health Ltd – UKSCBlogLondon Borough of Merton Council v Nuffield Health Ltd – UKSCBlog

In this post, Lisa Fox, a senior associate in the litigation team at CMS, previews the decision awaited from the Supreme Court in London Borough of Merton v Nuffield Health Ltd.

Factual Background

Nuffield Health acquired Merton Abbey (the “Premises”) on August 1, 2016, when it bought the business of Virgin Active. It applied to the London Borough of Merton (“Merton”) for mandatory and discretionary rate relief. The application for mandatory relief was initially granted (representing 80% of the rates otherwise payable). However, following a visit by Council officers in November 2016, Merton withdrew the relief on the basis that

It’s not an uncommon scenario: the client has bought a business, but some mission critical software is outdated and the license is not transferable except on payment of a fee. What do you do: Pay the fee or “save” the money and keep using it? Thawley J found that the licensor’s consent to some time to evaluate options meant Shepparton Partners (SPC) had an implied license but was infringed thereafter. Injunctions and $1,162,428.80 damages flowed.

I am guessing pretty much everyone in Australia at some point or another has experienced SPC’s canned fruit, vegetables or maybe fruit juices.

Some (General Court) Decisions Put a SMILE on Your FaceSome (General Court) Decisions Put a SMILE on Your Face

We are used to decisions about non-traditional trade marks not deserving protection in the European Union, leading to the inevitable conclusion that non-traditional trade marks can be difficult to register and keep on the register.

The recent McCain decision of the EU General Court seems to go in the opposite direction, providing some guidance on which proof of use will be sufficient for a non-traditional trade mark to stay on the EU register (see here).

Unlawful Police Power, Going To Jail NSW And Over-Policing

“Over-policing” of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people is an issue that was highlighted by the Redfern Legal Center head of police accountability and government law, Samantha Lee. Ms Lee cited tougher bail laws, more police powers and the Suspect Targeting Management Plan (STMP), that’s unique to NSW, as reasons for the inequity.

Lawyer and advocate Samantha Lee identified that NSW police were unlawfully strip searching Australians. It was for this reason that the RLC began the ‘Safe & Sound’ campaign, in order to stop the high number of police strip

Safety of Journalists

In recent years, the threats that journalists face in their work have grown considerably. The development of technology has meant that journalists are subject to online violence for the work that they do, particularly women who are being targeted and are vulnerable to such attacks as outlined in a recent International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) and UNESCO report.

Some States have also used outdated laws to prosecute journalists and, in some cases, submitted them to arbitrary detention . In some instances, the work that journalists do in holding governments to

WALTERBORO, SC — Alex Murdaugh’s high-powered legal team is renting an extravagant wedding venue on 500 acres in Walterboro, South Carolina, during their client’s sensational double murder trial, Fox News Digital has learned.

The property, called Eden at Gracefield, is the temporary home of Murdaugh’s lead defense attorneys, Dick Harpootlian, Jim Griffin and their entourage.

The team rented all five homes “nestled between lakes and tranquil forests” about eight miles from the Colleton County Courthouse for a little less than the list price of $20,475 a week.
