"I have lost my reputation, my livelihood, my name and the trust of my fellow man. I've embarrassed and humiliated my wife and my family, and I've caused a lot of pain and embarrassment to my profession. You don't have to tell me, I know."Defense attorney Joseph Cheshire said Crouch had become arrogant and took on too many cases, took shortcuts and made serious mistakes."James Crouch would come into this courtroom and act like he was the man," Cheshire said. He took way too many cases because that was his way to prove that he was the man when, in, fact, he wasn't." Witnesses testified during the two-day sentencing hearing this week that many of Crouch's clients in the questionable cases paid him an extra 0 to change the date of their DWI conviction using a legal action to correct clerical errors called a "nunc pro tunc" order and that former District Judge Kristin Ruth unknowingly signed off on the orders.Defense attorney Brad Bannon said that, over the course of the five years in question, Crouch represented between 1,000 to 2,000 people on DWI charges and the number of cases in question was a relatively small percentage of them."He obtained this relief in 80 cases," Bannon said.Doing so, he added, was no different than what other attorneys do, but there were distinct differences in how he went about it. He went to a judge who did not preside over the case, and he did not notify opposing counsel," Bannon said.
This would mean we can consider paying you for a period up to 3 months before the date we received your application form.
Having parties to a contract date their signatures makes sense when there’s a lag time between when the first party signs and the last party signs.
And some auditors are requiring that their clients use dated signatures in all their contracts. As I noted in this November 2008 blog post, one problem is that parties sometimes return signed signature pages without filling in the date next to the signature.
