Here is the NBC LA story on my client - Sennett Devermont - who recorded a rogue police officer falsely arresting him. We won a $70,000 settlement for his five hours in jail. Guess what? Even though this is the cop's second offense, he still walls the streets. http://www.nbclosangeles.com/news/local/Armed-With-Video-Man-Wins-70K-After-Santa-Monica-Arrest-294304001.html

Business Law  - 
 
A common tool for restructuring the ownership of a foreign subsidiary within a multinational group is the stock sale governed by Section 304 or “cash D reorganization.”  Depending on the sale is structured, the taxpayer can control which of these provisions applies with significantly different tax consequences.

This outline provides a detailed review of the authorities addressing section 304 and cash D reorganizations with a focus on the international arena. Topics covered include sourcing from different categories of earnings and profits, calculating the indirect foreign tax credit under section 902, recovery of basis and the “disappearing basis” issue, and the overlap between Section 304 and Section 367. Current PLRs that highlight emerging issues under these provisions are also discussed.
