Legal Marketing News | 2011/07/15 22:21
Ryan amp; Maniskas, LLP ( announces that it has filed a class action lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York on behalf of purchasers of the common stock of Ebix, Inc. (Ebix or the Company) (NASDAQ: EBIX) between May 6, 2009 through June 30, 2011, inclusive (the Class Period).

For more information regarding this class action suit, please contact Ryan amp; Maniskas, LLP (Richard A. Maniskas, Esquire) toll-free at (877) 316-3218 or by email at or visit:

Ebix supplies software and electronic commerce solutions to the insurance industry. The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, Defendants issued a series of materially false and misleading statements regarding the Company's business and financial results. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Company's tax provisions did not conform to Generally Accepted Accounting Principles; (2) the Company overstated its account receivables; (3) the Company consistently failed to tie customer payments to specific invoices; (4) the Company lacked adequate internal and financial controls; and (5) as a result of the foregoing, the Company's statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On March 24, 2011, Seeking Alpha published a report (Report”) accusing the Company of engaging in a number of accounting manipulations, including: (a) manipulating stated organic growth; (b) overstating profit margins; (c) overstating its accounts receivables; (d) manipulating tax liabilities; and (e) inflating cash flows. The Report concluded that the Company’s problems run deeper than accounting. The EBIX story also comes with multiple auditor resignations, governance abuses, misrepresented organic growth, questionable cash flow and a contentious CEO.” On this news, the Company’s shares plummeted $7.20 per share, or nearly 24%, to close on March 24, 2011, at $22.52 per share, on unusually heavy trading volume.
On June 30, 2011, the media reported that the shareholders of Peak Performance Solutions, Inc. (Peak”), who sold their business to Ebix, filed a lawsuit in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Ohio, claiming that Ebix was consistently unable to bill customers properly, tie customer payments to invoices, and provide basic financial data or calculate revenues for Peak. On this news, the Company's shares declined an additional $1.30 or more than 6% and closed at $19.05.

If you are a member of the class, you may, no later than September 12, 2011, request that the Court appoint you as lead plaintiff of the class. A lead plaintiff is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the Court must determine that the class member's claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Under certain circumstances, one or more class members may together serve as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. You may retain Ryan amp; Maniskas, LLP or other counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.

More psych evaluation in castration killing case
Legal Marketing News | 2011/05/02 09:23
A doctor will pay a second visit to a Portuguese model accused of castrating and killing a TV journalist in a Times Square hotel before his lawyer decides whether to pursue a psychiatric defense in the attack.

A psychiatrist visited Renato Seabra this month but needs a second evaluation of the 21-year-old model, defense attorney David Touger said Friday. Seabra was transferred two weeks ago from Bellevue Hospital to jail at Rikers Island, Touger said.

He is medicated because he has a psychiatric illness. He is doing well under the circumstances that he is under, Touger said after a short pretrial hearing in state Supreme Court in Manhattan.

Seabra, a former contestant on a Portuguese talent-search show, has pleaded not guilty to murder in Carlos Castro's Jan. 7 death. Castro, a 65-year-old Portuguese TV personality and writer, was found dead, naked and bloodied in a room they were sharing.

Estate Planning - Lifetime Planning
Legal Marketing News | 2010/09/03 07:17
div class=contentpaneopenMarathon Legal LLC

Estate planning is a gift to yourself and to the people you love.nbsp; Even those of modest wealth should plan their estates, because modern estate planning means more than distributing property and avoiding taxes.nbsp; At its core, fine estate planning reaches beyond tax and distribution concerns by including written expressions of your values as they pertain to the relationships you have with other people and the wishes you have for your own care should self-care become impossible.nbsp; Fine estate planning minimizes family acrimony and mitigates the burden which poor planning transfers to the people you love when you pass away or become incapacitated.

As these comments suggest, estate planning can address a wide variety of concerns.nbsp; Although two estate plans are rarely identical, Wisconsin law has developed reliable ways to address most common concerns.nbsp; What follows are brief descriptions of the most common estate planning concerns and the corresponding legal mechanisms which are best designed to address them.

strongAvoiding Probate/strong
The length and cost of probate should be of special concern to Wisconsin residents with estates whose monetary value exceeds $50,000.nbsp; Avoiding these pitfalls of probate normally involves ensuring that one’s assets are properly titled and beneficiaries properly designated.nbsp; Sometimes trusts are the most practical way to save your family the expense and burden of probate.
Providing for Minor Children/strong
Planning your estate affords you the opportunity to speak on behalf of your minor children should you pass away or become disabled.nbsp; Rather than having a court decide who will care for them, your estate plan allows you to name appropriate guardians of your choice.nbsp; Your plan can also address how you wish to provide for your children’s support.
Incapacity Planning/strong
As life expectancies lengthen, planning for incapacity or disability becomes increasingly important.nbsp; Powers of attorney, advance directives, and other documented instructions enable the people you trust to manage your finances and healthcare when you cannot do these things for yourself.nbsp; These aspects of your plan minimize the time and hassle others may encounter when trying to act on your behalf.
Minimizing Estate Taxes/strong
Large estates should be concerned about laws which tax the transfer of wealth from older to younger generations.nbsp; Fortunately, these laws also reward those who plan ahead.nbsp; With proper planning, it is not uncommon for large estates to save tens-of-thousands of dollars in estate taxes – far more than the cost of most well-drafted plans. /div
