State Consumer Disputes Redressal Commission [dismissing a revision petition upholding the order of the District Consumer Disputes Redressal Forum] was challenged before the High Court by filing a writ petition.  The Registry raised objection and opined that in view of the Supreme Court judgment in Cicily Kallarackal Vs. Vehicle Factory [(2012) 8 SCC 524] no writ petition lies against the order of the State Commission.The High Court to answer this, first considered the question whether in against exercise of revisional powers by State Commission u/S.17(1)(b), any remedy is available before the National Commission or not ? Answering this, the court held that neither revisional jurisdiction nor appellate Jurisdiction by the National Commission could be exercised against the impugned orders passed by the State Commission. The Court therefore proceeded to consider the matter on merits by rejecting the objection as to jurisdiction. It observed that the window of interference available to the Court u/Art.226 in matters of this nature where orders of statutorily created tribunals [District Forum & State Commission] are under challenge, is extremely limited and dismissed the writ petition. “The High Court after having held the writ petition to be maintainable has dismissed the Writ Petition on merits. Despite the attention of the High Court having been drawn to Cicily Kallarackal vs. Vehicle Factory, (2012) 8 SCC 524 without even dealing with or discussing the judgment and the reason for its inapplicability, the High Court has chosen to rely upon decision of Single Judge of  Orissa High Court and the Division Bench of the High Court of Andhra Pradesh at Hyderabad to hold that the writ petition was maintainable. We are of the considered opinion that the writ petition itself was not maintainable in view of Cicily (supra)”, the Apex Court bench Justices Navin Sinha and Krishna Murari said while dismissing the SLP.In Cicily, it was observed that the order of the National Consumer Commission are incapable of being questioned under the writ jurisdiction of the High Court, as a statutory appeal in terms of Section 27 A(1)(c) lies to the Supreme Court.  “We cannot help but to state in absolute terms that it is not appropriate for the High Courts to entertain writ petitions under Article 226 of the Constitution of India against the orders passed by the Commission, as a statutory appeal is provided and lies to this Court under the provisions of the Consumer Protection Act, 1986. Once the legislature has provided for a statutory appeal to a higher court, it cannot be proper exercise of jurisdiction to permit the parties to bypass the statutory appeal to such higher court and entertain petitions in exercise of its powers under Article 226 of the Constitution of India.”, it was observed. The said judgment, however, does not discuss the maintainability of writ petition against order passed by State Consumer Commission.Case: Mehra Bal Chikitsalaya Evam Navjat Shishu I.C.U. vs. Manoj Upadhyaya  [SLP(C) 4127/2021]Coram: Justices Navin Sinha and Krishna MurariCitation: LL 2021 SC 163Click here to Read/Download OrderRead OrderNext Storylast_img read more

Federal probe ordered into ‘inhumane’ conditions at New York lockup

first_imgOnnes/iStock(NEW YORK) — A federal investigation has been launched into why inmates at a New York detention center were left to endure days of bone-chilling weather following a fire that knocked out electricity — conditions Gov. Andrew Cuomo said appeared to violate the civil rights of those incarcerated.The Department of Justice ordered the Office of Inspector General to investigate the troubling conditions at the Metropolitan Detention Center in Brooklyn that prompted a lawsuit and protests by relatives of inmates.“The Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Prisons are committed to the safe and humane living and working conditions of all inmates and employees,” DOJ officials said in a statement.The Office of Inspector General has been asked to review the circumstances and determine if the Bureau of Prisons, which runs the waterfront facility, responded appropriately when a Jan. 27 electrical fire at the center knocked out power for a week.Power at the center, which houses about 1,600 inmates awaiting trials, wasn’t restored until Sunday evening.The DOJ statement, released late Wednesday, says the Inspector General will also review whether the Bureau of Prisons “has in place adequate contingency plans for such an incident.”“DOJ and BOP will continue to work to ensure that MDC Brooklyn meets all required standards,” the statement reads.A federal lawsuit filed Monday on behalf of the Federal Defenders, lawyers who represent inmates locked up at the facility, alleges that the response to the deteriorating conditions at the center was “woefully inadequate.”The lawsuit asked the federal court to restore inmates’ “constitutional rights, including their access to legal counsel.”The lawsuit claims that during the power failure hundreds of inmates were locked into darkened cells, subjected to frigid temperatures for days and denied hot water and critical medical care.“The conditions at the MDC and the behavior of the officials in charge are disgraceful and inhumane and represent wholesale violations of our clients’ constitutional rights,” Dave Patton, executive director and attorney-in-chief of the Federal Defenders, said in a statement.Gov. Cuomo called on the Department of Justice to investigate why inmates were kept in unheated cells during a polar vortex that hit the city last week, sending temperatures plummeting to as low as 2 degrees.“We have said to the Justice Department it’s an outrage,” Cuomo said during a news conference on Monday. “It violates the civil rights and civil liberties of the people who are incarcerated. Just because you are incarcerated doesn’t mean you give up your civil rights and civil liberties.”Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Rappers who witnessed Atlanta police killing of Rayshard Brooks speak out

first_imgWSB(MEMPHIS, Tenn.) — BY: BILL HUTCHINSONTwo Memphis rappers spoke out Thursday about arriving in Atlanta to follow their musical dreams only to witness a white police officer gun down a black man in front of them within hours of arriving in the city.Mike Perkins and Melvin Evans said they traveled to Atlanta to film a music video with the rapper Pastor Troy when they decided to go to a Wendy’s to get a bite to eat and ended up watching in horror as Rayshard Brooks was shot twice in the back while running away from now ex-police officer Garrett Rolfe.A third bullet fired from Rolfe’s 9mm handgun struck Evans’ recently-purchased Chevrolet Trailblazer on the passenger side near where Perkins was seated.“I mean, I don’t know where to start. I witnessed a murder and I was almost killed myself,” Perkins, 35, who goes by the stage name “Mike Peezy,” said at a news conference in the Atlanta office of his and Evans’ attorney Shean Williams of The Cochran Law Firm.Perkins and Evans spoke a day after the Fulton County District Attorney’s Office obtained warrants for the arrests of Rolfe and Atlanta Police Officer Devin Bronsan.Brosnan surrendered to authorities Thursday afternoon and is expected to post $50,000 bail and be released, according to his attorney. Rolf has until 6 p.m. to surrender and is expected to be held without bail.Rolfe, who was fired from the police force following the shooting, is facing 11 charges, including felony murder, multiple counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and seven violations of his office. Brosnan, who has been placed on administrative leave, is facing two counts of violations of oath and one count of aggravated assault.Perkins and Williams held a news conference as Brooks’ family announced they will hold a funeral for him at 1 p.m. on Tuesday at Atlanta’s historic Ebenezer Baptist Church, where Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. delivered his first sermon and where the civil rights icon was eulogized following his 1968 assassination.The shooting on Friday came admidst seething tensions as protests of the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis have broken out in Atlanta and in cities across the nation. The Brooks shooting came just days after six Atlanta police officers where criminally charged after viral video caught them deploying stun guns on two black college students and dragging them from their car as a protest was occurring nearby.Atlanta Police Chief Erika Shields resigned a day after Brooks’ shooting.Perkins said he Evans and a female friend had been waiting in the drive-thru lane at the Wendy’s restaurant when they suddenly heard the violent struggle between Brooks, 27, and the two officers.“I cowered,” Perkins said.He said he heard tussling up ahead of them and then he heard the officers yell “stop resisting” and “‘stop fighting.” He said the first thought that entered his mind was that the police were going to kill whoever they were struggling with.“When I saw him [Brooks] running, I heard the Tasers or whatever. Then when I heard the shots, my first reaction was to duck. I was up under the seat in the backseat ducking,” Perkins said.He said he heard their female friend scream and Evans say, “Man, I think he’s dead.”Evans, who goes by the stage name “2Turnt Gizzle,” said that after Brooks was shot, he saw the two officers standing over the body.“What I saw was they went and handcuffed him,” Evans said.The deadly encounter unfolded Friday night after a Wendy’s employee called 911 to report Brooks was in the drive-thru lane asleep at the wheel and couldn’t be awakened.Brosnan was the first to arrive on the scene and knocked on Brooks’ window but could not wake him up. Body-camera video showed Brosnan opening the door and shaking Brooks awake.Rolfe responded to the scene when Brosnan radioed a dispatcher saying he needed a DUI-certified officer.Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard said that prior to the shooting, Rolfe and Brosnan spoke to Brooks for 41 minutes and 17 seconds and that Brooks was cordial in answering their questions and complying with their orders to be patted down, submit to a series of field sobriety tests and a Breathalyzer exam that showed he was “slightly impaired.”Security video captured Brooks fighting with the officers when they moved to handcuff him. The footage shows Brooks taking Brosnan’s yellow stun gun from his hand and running away.Howard said that video showed Brooks turning and firing the stun gun over Rolfe’s head emptying the device before Rolfe, who had also expended the cartridges in his stun gun, drew his service weapons and fired three shots in the crowded parking lot, hitting Brooks in the back. Howard said Rolfe was captured on video kicking Brooks after shooting him and Brosnan standing on dying man’s shoulders.Howard said Brosnan has agreed to testify against Rolfe, but Brosnan’s attorney, Don Samuel, said that the officer has not agreed to testify, but is cooperating in the investigation and “is absolutely not guilty of any crime and will not plead guilty.”Perkins and Evans said they didn’t realize their vehicle was hit by an errant shot fired by Rolfe until they left the parking lot and went back to a studio where they were working.Evans said that after being shot Brooks collapsed about 10 feet from his vehicle.He said that right after the shooting, Perkins was telling him to drive away immediately. But Evans said he decided to stay put.“They [were] right there by us,” Evans said of the officers and Brooks. “We [were] already nervous, shocked, all that. I probably would have run over them. They were that close and they probably would have thought that we were going to use the vehicle to hit them or something and fired shots at us. So I said we ain’t going nowhere.”He said he backed out of the parking lot once he saw the officers put their guns back in their holsters.“I thought it just wasn’t necessary,” Perkins said of the shooting. “I feel like it was just … it was awful. The whole situation was awful.”Copyright © 2020, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.last_img read more

Equipment round-up: new bakery kit unveiled

first_imgBrook Food reaffirms deal with Hobart Source: Sparc SystemsSparc Systems unveils Hestia Dough CheckweigherSparc Systems is rolling out the Hestia Dough Checkweigher which it said can weigh dough for loaves, buns and baps with an accuracy of 0.5g.Designed for industrial bakers, the kit can inspect up to 12,000 pieces of dough per hour. Connected to an automated upstream dough dividing line, if a piece of dough is under or overweight by as little as 0.5g, the checkweigher automatically rejects it. Simultaneously, the machine’s fibre optic controlled software communicates back to the dough divider in real time to adjust the position of the blade for the next batch. Typically inspecting 400g and 800g portions, Sparc engineers can pre-programme up to 500 different product codes, ranging from 150g to six kilograms.Processing variables also need to be factored in, according to Sparc Systems European sales manager Charlie Graham: “Changes within the dough itself places even greater importance on consistent weight monitoring before proving so we don’t bake anything that’s out of tolerance. Leaving until the final stage of the process could result in an entire batch being over or underweight. Costing a bakery over four hours of lost production time and thousands of wasted product.”Data gathered by the Hestia management control system can help bakeries track uptime and address line inefficiencies. Using the swipe touchscreen, baking operatives can select the statistical parameters most relevant to their operation.Graham estimates that an industrial bakery plant producing 7,000 loaves or more an hour could save up to £1,000 a day by switching from manual processing to automated weighing. Source: Grote CompanyGrote Company releases new slicerIndustrial food slicing and assembly equipment manufacturer Grote Company has released a new version of its slicer/applicator.The updated machine can be used for a range of bakery applications, including slicing bread for snacks – turning baguettes into crostini, for example – sandwich fillings and pizza toppings.It has an updated sanitary design with an open channel frame for easy access and fast cleaning, Grote said, as well as an easier and repeatable set up with an updated blade guide mounting system. The AccuBand Blade System has also been completely redesigned to improve blade life.It can slice and apply with up to 150 strokes per minute, per lane and stack up to 120 strokes per minute, per lane.“The slicer/applicator has been the premier slice-and-apply machine in the food processing industry for over 30 years, and we are proud to continue its tradition with this new, superior design,” said CEO Bob Grote. “We optimised and improved several components of the slicer, all to increase performance and sanitation while decreasing downtime and total cost of ownership.”Based in Ohio in the US, Grote Company also has an international office in Flintshire, Wales. A dough checkweigher, slicer and applicator, and sheet cake icing line are among the latest pieces of equipment to be unveiled for the baking industry.In addition, Brook Food has extended its preferred UK supplier relationship with equipment manufacturer Hobart.Here’s the latest updates from the equipment scene: Source: UnifillerUnifiller introduces sheet cake icing lineCake production equipment specialist Unifiller Systems has introduced a new addition to its portfolio – the Sheet Cake Icing Line.The line is designed to help industrial bakeries looking to automate the assembly, filling and icing process for sheet cakes. The all-in-one decorating line was designed and built with speed, accuracy and efficiency in mind, said Unifiller, to help bakery manufacturers streamline their labour.Its computer-controlled system can store up to 100 recipes and custom production speeds, icing up to 10 sheet cakes a minute. For base, top, and side icing, its servo depositors provide spread control and reduce the need for manual touch-ups. Additional modules can be added to this base line for customized needs including the cake stacker, cake slicer, bordering line, and more.“Labour-related issues can be one of the biggest challenges for industrial bakeries. Customers looking to increase throughput rely on the typical fix, which is to add labour. This will result in more hands touching the product, greater inconsistencies with the end product, and people working within closer proximity to one another,” said Steven Belyea, applications manager at Unifiller.“Customers who have installed our Sheet Cake Icing Line have been able to reduce a large portion of their labour or repurpose it to other areas of the plant while simultaneously increasing the quality of their product and overall throughput.”center_img La Cimbali unveils automatic coffee maker for small bakeriesCoffee machine specialist La Cimbali has unveiled a compact entry-level hot beverage machine. Source: Hobart/Brook FoodBrook Food Processing Equipment has announced that it has renewed its deal with Hobart to remain the equipment manufacturer’s preferred UK bakery supplier.Brook Food supplies a range of Hobart equipment, notably a range of planetary mixers. Suitable for dough, pastry, fillings, batters, creams and more, the mixers use a rotating tool and fixed position bowl. The Hobart models available range from five to 140 litres and all models are supplied with a stainless-steel bowl as well as three interchangeable tools.As a result, the Somerset-based firm said it is able to offer ‘huge discounts’ on Hobart models to UK customers, with direct finance available on all models. Source: La CimbaliCalled the S15, part of the S Series, the fully automatic machine can produce up to 150 beverages a day via a barista assisted or self-serve mode. It is ideal for locations where space may be at a premium, the company said highlighting craft bakeries as one example.With hot textured milk technology and a split in two powder hopper, the S15 allows operators to offer a menu with up to 96 different recipes based on fresh coffee beans, fresh or powdered milk and soluble chocolate. Recipes can be switched up through the seasons and specials can be added.“The S15 offers real benefits as it allows small businesses to compete with the high street by offering a great range of premium quality drinks, prepared to a professional barista standard, even if the daily coffee volumes are quite low,” said La Cimbali managing director Daniel Clarke.“Clearly, hygiene is a key priority, so we are encouraging operators to invest in our free to use Cup4You technology as this allows the user to browse the menu and order favourite beverages directly from a smartphone or tablet.”last_img read more
