Talk show, topic of discussion: Legal services
Attoney, Dawb Yaj and Shuly Her are classmates at college and are now formed a legal service agency called Village Law services. Dawb is specialized with civil law service and Shuly is specialized in criminal law. Dawb summarizes that a difficult civil case is that the case could cross boundary from a civil case into a criminal case which either you win or loose is not about money however, it is about jail time or out of jail. Shuly summarizes that in a criminal case as a public defender is very difficult to handle a case adequately due to time consuming and case over load. A private attorney will handle case by case with full time focus on individual case. There are other legal aid services that can be charged per sliding scales; or small fee less than a private attorney. Free consultation will always be provided. for more information contact Dawb Yaj 651-955-2372; Shuly 612-532-4505.

"NewsWrap": The second time is one charm away from marriage equality in New Zealand, while an upstate Michigan Native American tribe becomes the third in America to marry same-gender couples, and civil unions for lesbian & gay couples are all but a done deal in Colorado; a federal appeals court overturns Virginia's sodomy statute citing the U.S. Supreme Court's 2003 Lawrence v. Texas decision ruling that state's law to be unconstitutional, and the U.S. Internal Revenue Service revokes the tax-exempt status of the gay "cure"-peddling National Association for Research and Therapy of Homosexuality (NARTH) because the group had failed to submit required tax forms for three years; a much anticipated speech on human rights by Britain's Queen Elizabeth II that activists expected to be LGBT-inclusive buries them instead in "other grounds"; holy landlords! Italy's biggest gay sauna shares space with priestly housing; and "meet the new Pope, same as the old Pope" [intro'd with a brief musical snippet by The Who] (written by GREG GORDON, produced this week by BRIAN DESHAZOR & STEVE PRIDE, and reported by NATALIE PEOPLES & JOHNNIE TORRES)
