Suing after Cruise Accidents like the Carnival Triumph

There are a lot of great cruises out there but sometimes things go wrong.  You can sue if you have been injured on a cruise ship, injured by another passenger.  You can sue for emotional distress like that caused to the passengers swimming in filth in the Carnival Triumph.

The problem lies in that many casino cruises are run in the United States but actually incorporated in other countries such as the Bahamas and also are under maritime law, instead of personal injury law.  Regardless, if you feel like you have been injured in any way, you should contact a Personal Injury Attorney right away.

Make sure, even if you are on a free Casino Trip that you understand you rights before going on the vacation.

Recent Tax Audits in Colorado of Marijuana Growers and Dispensaries May be Part of Federal Crackdown

Colorado Criminal Defense Attorney writes on his blog about IRS Audits of Marijuana Dispensaries that they may be a part of the way the United States Government is responding to recent changes in state laws regarding the possession and use of Marijuana.   Colorado, Washington and California are three states have made marijuana legal.  These amendments are not in accordance with Federal Narcotics Laws.   So Federal Charges may be levied against those in possession of or manufacturing marijuana, especially in large amounts.

The Federal Authorities said they are not doing this, however an IRS audit often begins with an IDR or Information Document Request  .  This often gives way to the discovery of criminal activity leading to federal charges against the Marijuana Dispensaries.
