Plaintiff in Howe v. Enterprise Holdings Files Motion to Sanction for Spoliage

Motion to Sanction for Spoliage

Victim asks Lee Court for harsh sanctions and transfer to regular docket with opportunity for punitive damages following crime encounter at National Car Rental

Enterprise has been accused of running a ding-and-dent scam so often by readers of this site, I’ve lost count.”

— Christopher Elliott, Consumer Advocate at Elliott.org

FORT MYERS, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, July 21, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing CRA for the communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today the ‘Motion to Sanction for Evidence Spoliation’ filed in the County Court of the Twentieth Judicial Circuit in and for Lee County, Florida, Honorable Archie B. Hayward, Jr.

The motion was filed after defendant Enterprise Holdings’ National Car Rental purposely destroyed critical booth surveillance that it knew would be used as evidence in a ‘ding and dent scam’ civil theft suit. Moreover, the rental behemoth is on recorded audio having acknowledged in plain language that it had reviewed the surveillance "footage" at the same time it demanded a fraudulent payment of $502.80 from plaintiff David Howe (https://soundcloud.com/user-370781554/national-car-rental-damage-recovery-scam). This recorded admission from the defendant creates an undeniable statutory expectation NOT to engage in spoliation of evidence.

The crucial evidence forever concealed by this malicious behavior was part of a predatory felonious financial extortion scheme. The illicit scheme involved a National Car Rental agent and manager who intentionally ignored Enterprise Holdings' publicly-touted company ‘damage’ protocols during rental termination to legitimize the otherwise obvious ‘ding and dent’ scam encounter. A review of the official Lee Port Authority Police report reveals patently false statements taken under-oath among an array of admissions of profound negligence.

According to the plaintiff — and with a plethora of overwhelming evidence that’s been previously exposed to media, law enforcement, FL AG Pam Bondi’s Consumer Protection Director Victoria Butler along with senior investigators, and United States Senator Marco Rubio’s legislative staff among others — the predatory scam turned criminal following subsequent vehicle damage under the defendant’s care. The new damage, of course, was inserted onto a PDF and sent to the plaintiff with a demand of $502.80 along with a threat of collections and other punitive treatment if not paid.

In addition to repeated requests from the plaintiff demanding to see the surveillance that would have confirmed the pre-existing ‘wear and tear’ used initially to legitimize the fraud, Defendant Enterprise Holdings National Car Rental brazenly ignored repeated calls by the Lee Port Authority police during its criminal investigation.

In the state of Florida individuals and companies who know, or reasonably expect, that evidence will be used in a criminal or civil procedure — all have a legal duty to preserve and safeguard the evidence.

WEBINAR HOST
Decades of research knowledge combined with real world experience earned Dr. Nelson Marquina a world class reputation as a recognized pioneer in the emerging field of laser therapy.

A recognized author and sought after thought leader, Dr. Marquina penned the "Energy Medicine: Focus on Lasers" chapter for The Scientific Basis of Integrative Health third edition. Written in clinical and lay language, the chapter provides an easily understood basis of lasers clinical application, highlighting laser light’s safety when absorbed by human tissues. Marquina’s chapter also explains the science behind repairing organs and tissue at the cellular level using non-surgical lasers and the important integration of laser therapy into medicine and healthcare mainstream. Dr. Marquina also authored a chapter in Pain Relief and Healing with Lasers: Dental Protocols of Laser Treatments,released in Japan in 2015.

Growing up in Peru surrounded by a family of professors and teachers, young Nelson loved to learn. As a budding scientist, he developed a keen interest in the effects of light. His backyard experiments included how to fry insects with only a broken light bulb and sunlight. This discovery of the power of focused light inspired his studies in space research, robotic engineering, artificial intelligence, human physiology and biochemistry as well as energetic medicine.
He has taught laser biophysics, bioelectromagnetic medicine and artificial intelligence serving as faculty at several universities. Dr. Marquina found great inspiration after designing and directing a clinical trial on laser therapy and witnessing the phenomenal results.

The inspired doctor began eagerly seeking out engineering and physician partners aimed at bringing advanced laser technology to the United States. Two decades later, Dr. Marquina continues to advance laser therapy and providing new levels of understanding to their impact in human healing.

Dr. Nelson Marquina, MSc, PhD, DC is known for his enjoyable and effective teaching style and down-to-earth, hands-on approach to laser therapy. A pioneer in the development of photonic and bioelectromagnetic systems and applicable treatment protocols, Dr. Nelson Marquina has authored scientific chapters and articles in healthcare texts and journals.

An ACL injury is the tearing of the anterior cruciate (KROO-she-ate) ligament (ACL) — one of the major ligaments in your knee. ACL injuries most commonly occur during sports that involve sudden stops, jumping or changes in direction — such as basketball, soccer, football, tennis, downhill skiing, volleyball and gymnasticsWomen are more likely to have an ACL injury than are men who participate in the same sports. Studies have suggested some reasons for these differences in risk.

In general, women athletes exhibit a strength imbalance in their thighs with the muscles at the front of the thigh (quadriceps) being stronger than the muscles at the back (hamstrings). The hamstrings help prevent the shinbone from moving too far forward — movement that can overextend the ACL.

Studies comparing jumping and landing techniques among men and women athletes have shown that women athletes are more likely to land from a jump in a way that increases stress on their knees.

Research suggests that training to strengthen muscles of the legs, hips and lower torso — as well as training to improve jumping and landing techniques — may reduce the higher ACL injury risk associated with women athletes.

Symphony response to BBC coverage

Whilst the BBC's coverage did not fairly represent the scientifically proven benefit of oxo-biodegradable technology. We are pleased to be focusing on solutions

Symphony Environmental Technologies plc (LSE:SYM)

Whilst the BBC’s coverage did not, in our opinion, fairly present the scientifically proven benefit of oxo-biodegradable technology, we are pleased that the BBC has now focused on the solution”

— Michael Laurier, CEO

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — SYMPHONY ENVIRONMENTAL TECHNOLOGIES PLC

("Symphony" or the “Company”)

Response to BBC Coverage

Symphony Environmental Technologies Plc (AIM:SYM), a global specialist in technologies that “make plastics smarter”, makes the following statement on the coverage of its d2w plastic technology on the BBC news yesterday (19 July).

The Company’s Chief Executive, Michael Laurier said:

“Nearly all previous media coverage has been about the problem of plastic in the open environment, rather than the solution. Whilst the BBC’s coverage did not, in our opinion, fairly present the scientifically proven benefit of oxo-biodegradable technology, we are pleased that the BBC has now focused on the solution, and introduced our Company and our d2w technology to a much wider audience.

All plastics will fragment when exposed in the open environment, but the problem with ordinary plastics is that their fragments will lie or float around for decades before becoming biodegradable, and will persist and accumulate as a problem for future generations. During that time, they break down into microplastics and may attract and carry toxins.

Symphony’s d2w technology was invented to accelerate the degradation process and reduce the dwell-time of plastic in the environment, by adding a catalyst which promotes oxidation and converts the plastic into biodegradable materials. It is essential to understand that it does not just create fragments. d2w plastic can be recycled if collected but degradation followed by biodegradation is there to protect the environment if all else fails.

It is legitimate for the BBC reporter to question whether d2w technology actually works. To answer that question for ourselves and our customers we have commissioned scientific tests over more than 20 years so as to be quite sure that we would not be making misleading claims.

Based on this evidence a d2w plastic product will become biodegradable if exposed to oxygen on land or sea much more quickly than ordinary plastic.

These tests included successful exposure in seawater at the Bandol laboratory in France, and subsequent testing at Queen Mary University, London. We were therefore surprised when Richard Thompson of Plymouth University produced a bag which he claimed had failed to degrade. Mr. Thompson is not a polymer scientist, and we were given no opportunity before the broadcast to investigate his claim.

As previously reported by Symphony it is correct that the EU Chemicals Agency (“ECHA”) is studying “oxo-degradable” plastic at the request of the EU Commission. We welcome this, and have submitted detailed evidence to ECHA that “oxo-degradable” plastic is not the same as “oxo-biodegradable” plastic and that d2w plastic will fully biodegrade within a reasonable time and much more quickly than ordinary plastic into non-plastic biodegradable materials that will themselves naturally biodegrade in a similar way to a leaf.

The programme showed d2w plastic products being used in the Ivory Coast, where the government is concerned that plastic litter which gets into the environment should not lie or float around for decades. They, like several other governments across the world, are encouraging the use of d2w. Plastic is essential to the people of the Ivory Coast for protecting their food and water from contamination. A plastic ban could cause an epidemic and is most unlikely, therefore an alternate solution such as d2w is required.

We hope that the item on BBC news yesterday is the beginning of an open and honest debate about innovative solutions such as d2w. It is time to stop talking about the problem, and to focus on the solutions, for which d2w is one of a suite of Symphony’s technologies that we encourage governments and corporates to adopt.”

Ohmcraft Precision Resistors Play Critical Role in Accuracy of Mass Spectrometry Measurements

ROCHESTER, NY, UNITED STATES, July 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — For nearly two decades, leaders in mass spectrometry have relied on Ohmcraft’s precision resistors to manufacture extremely precise, high-voltage power supplies used in their equipment. Mass spectrometry is an analytical technique that provides advanced chemical analyses of organic samples for a variety of applications, from pharmaceuticals to breweries.

“Regardless of the application, the precision of these power sources ensures the accuracy of the sample measurement. If an error were to occur at any point in the process, the results would be compromised. That makes Ohmcraft’s leaded resistors an indispensable piece of the puzzle,” said Eric Van Wormer, Vice President of the Ohmcraft division of Micropen Technologies. “Mass spectrometry manufacturers choose Ohmcraft resistors for their unique power supply requirements.”

Larger than the handheld X-ray fluorescence (XRF) counterpart, mass spectrometry equipment has become more affordable over the years, gaining widespread popularity in industries with a need for extremely accurate results. Originally developed for pharmaceutical and biotech companies, the machines are now used by paint manufacturers, wineries, and breweries, as well as forensic investigators.

Ohmcraft’s thick-film, leaded resistors are engineered to meet this application’s specific needs. Its technology utilizes the proprietary Micropen electronic printing system to “print” precise, narrow, serpentine lines with resistive ink on a ceramic substrate, producing higher performance resistors over a wider range of values on a smaller surface area than is possible with conventional film resistor technology.

Guild raises $1.2m to provide a professional alternative to WhatsApp

Messaging app Guild has raised $1.2m. Guild is a messaging app for private professional groups. The WhatsApp for work. Guild is GDPR compliant and ad free.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 20, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Messaging app Guild has raised $1.2m in Seed funding. Guild is a messaging app for private professional groups. The WhatsApp for work. Guild is GDPR compliant and ad free.

Guild is built for any professional group, network or community where its members want to communicate, share, learn from each other, stay in touch, develop and nurture valuable professional relationships – both internal to the company and externally.

The Seed round, closed on SeedLegals, was raised from 28 private investors including the two founders, Ashley Friedlein and Matthew O’Riordan. Ashley and Matthew previously co-founded Econsultancy, which they successfully sold in 2012 to Centaur Media for £24m.

CEO Friedlein explains: “We think it is time professionals had a messaging app that is properly private, GDPR-compliant and designed just for work use. Research suggests there are already over half a billion people using WhatsApp for professional use and that’s the market Guild is going after.”

Guild members have total control of their own data: in leaving a group they can choose to delete their profile and all contributions. There is no directory of Guild members. No public profiles. No listing of guilds (groups). No way to apply to join a group. You can only be a member of Guild if you are the founder/host of a group or if a host invites you into his/her group. Furthermore, Guild allows users to request a full copy of their data including all contributions, and every member gives explicit consent when accepting an invitation to join a group.

Data from a survey of 500 US/UK professionals this month reveals that 38% of WhatsApp users also use the app for professional purposes although over 75% would like a separate messaging app just for work.

Professor Robin Dunbar, of “Dunbar’s Number” fame has joined the advisory board, and says of Guild: “Over the years, I’ve been approached by many networking-type start-ups, but I have always declined to be involved because they all seemed to be a simple market-places and lack any sense of a social dimension. Guild is in a different league precisely because its focus is small scale and intensely social and pays much closer attention to the way natural human groups are organised.”

Guild goes live this Autumn but you can sign up to receive updates and free access to the product when it launches.
