Milwaukee law firm political conventionRecently, the news broke that the 2020 Democratic National Convention will be held in Milwaukee. City and state government leaders campaigned heavily to have Milwaukee selected as the location for the convention, which will bring an influx of visitors to the area and put Milwaukee in the national spotlight.

The convention will take place July 13-16, 2020, and Fiserv Forum will serve as the convention’s hub. The key purpose of the convention is to vote on who will be the Democratic presidential nominee in the 2020 election. Conventions are also used as an opportunity for the party to solidify its positions on political issues as well as to boost morale. 

Houston and Miami were among the finalists to host the DNC in 2020. Milwaukee has never hosted a major party convention, and this will be the first Democratic convention held in the Midwest since 1996, when Chicago hosted the event.

Milwaukee criminal defense lawyers, airline lawsuit, airline passenger, airline regulations, tarmac delaysBy Attorney Ray Dall’Osto

On April 18, 2017, Kima Hamilton was removed from a Delta Airlines flight from Atlanta to Milwaukee because he had to go to the bathroom while the plane was on the tarmac.

The President also called for stricter laws and more vigorous prosecution for those committing cyberattacks on businesses and government, with substantially increased criminal penalties.

Under current law, individuals can request their credit bureau reports each year, free of charge. This right was enacted into law in the 2003 Fair and Accurate Credit Transactions Act (FACTA), and allows individual consumers to obtain credit reports from the three major national credit bureaus - TransUnion, Experian and Equifax. President Obama’s new proposal would expand this free access to also include a person’s credit score.

smartphone2In a recent blog, we discussed the ruling by the Supreme Court of the United States regarding the legalities of searching a person's cell phone without a warrant. The blog investigated two such cases that were before the court in which a defendant's phone was confiscated without a warrant and content on the phone entered as evidence.

GRGB's Raymond Dall'Osto was recently asked to provide insight about this case to the Wisconsin Radio Network. Dall'Osto applauded the US Supreme Court's finding indicating that they upheld the 4thAmendment privacy rights of the American people "in its application to modern technology."

Dall'Osto, who is a former director of the ACLU, noted that the information that a police officer can acquire on a cell phone is "critical evidence which law enforcement will still be able to obtain with relative ease, it just means they're going to have to have enough evidence to show probable cause, to get a warrant,"
