Important to know:
 
The Supreme court held today that if you are asked questions before you are arrested and you just stay silent, but you don’t say that you’re invoking your right to remain silent, your silence can be used against you.

Basically, if you want to assert your right to remain silent, you have to speak up and say something. You can’t just remain silent.

A new report from Safe Kids Worldwide shows 1 in 4 parents admit they have driven with their child unbuckled.  The report also finds that some parents feel it would be acceptable to drive with their children unbuckled on overnight trips.

Not what I expected:
 
Bicycle Accidents are becoming more and more common with more bikes on the roadways.  A new study shows that the severity of bike / car crashes is not reduced when bike lanes are utilized.  Help reduce #bikeaccidents  by looking for bikes and motorcycles.  Most bicycle and motorcycle crashes occur when a driver fails to yield (and typically says "I never even saw the motorcycle/bike").  Look twice.

Maryland's beneficiary designation case
The Separation Agreement, not the beneficiary designation controls.
Right on the heels of the Supreme Court ruling, the Maryland Court of Special Appeals finds that the beneficiary designation of the deceased may be overturned by the separation agreement.
In this case the Maryland Court of Special Appeals found that the parties Separation Agreement controlled who would get the survivor benefits.  The parties divorce and separation agreement provided that the with would receive the survivor benefits under his teacher's pension.  When the Husband remarried and named his new spouse his beneficiary.  The Court held that it was proper for the trial Court to have found a constructive trust because of the Husband's failure to designate his ex-wife as the beneficiary despite her failure to obtain a QDRO.
