The bench of Justice Jayant Nath has directed the Union of India to file a reply within 10 days. The Court has further directed the Union of India to respond to oral submission made by the Petitioner that the offline pharmacies having licenses be also listed on the website aarogyasetumitr.in. The next date of hearing is 29 May, 2020. The notices have been issued in the petition filed by South Chemists & Distributors Association, assailing the alleged “highly illegal, arbitrary and discriminatory” linking of the two. The Petitioner-organization had submitted that the said website promotes and acts as a “marketing tool” for e-pharmacies and the Government Application is being used “arbitrarily”, for the benefit of selected handpicked companies. “It is submitted that Respondents cannot act in an arbitrary, whimsical, unfair and discriminatory to allow the goodwill and recognition generated by the government owned mobile application, to be used for the commercial benefit of selected few entities, in complete violation of principles of equality and reasonableness. There is absolutely no basis for a government owned platform be used to promote private commercial ventures,” the Petitioner had argued. The Petitioner further submitted that linking of the website with a Government app was deceptive inasmuch as it gives a wrong and misleading impression to a user that the website as well as the information made available on it is also government mandated and approved. It also argued that similarity in the names of the mobile application and the website was “intentional”. “The website http://www.aarogyasetumitr.in seeks to take advantage of the name and goodwill which has been generated by the mobile application “Aarogya setu,” even though the website is not government owned and solely promotes vested interests,” the Petitioner submitted. It was further pointed out that E-pharmacies are illegal as per the law of the land and yet, they continue to operate despite an injunction order passed by the Delhi High Court itself. In this backdrop, the Petitioner had prayed that the Government be directed to take all steps to ensure that the name “Aaarogya Setu” or any identical/deceptively similar name is not misused to sponsor the commercial interests of “arbitrarily handpicked entities”. Further, a direction has been sought to immediately close the website in question, for being contemporaneous. Inter alia, it was contended that there is no mention that medicines can also be procured by the local pharmacy stores which operate offline. “It is submitted that there is no rationale or basis as to why the entire list of government authorized and licensed pharmacies is made available on the website, http://www.aarogyasetumitr.in, and the user is not informed that the medicines can be procured and made available from the nearest pharmacy stores. It is submitted that the medicines can be procured through local pharmacy stores itself and home delivered so as to ensure that social distancing is maintained during the current times.” In face of this submission, the Court queried as to why a local pharmacy cannot supply the medicines after home delivery is allowed. He also raised queries on the requirements for getting listed on the website. On behalf of the Union of India it was submitted that these are extraordinary circumstances and the website has been developed for easy accessibility of medicines to COVID patients. The Petitioners were represented by Mr. Sudhir Nandrajog, Sr. Advocate, Amit Gupta and Mansi Kukreja. The Respondents were represented by Ms. Maninder Acharya, ASG and Kirtiman Singh.

Court rules against city of Hoboken regarding Monarch waterfront development; says…

first_imgHOBOKEN – Mayor Dawn Zimmer said this week that the city will continue its litigation over the Monarch development proposal for the city’s northeastern waterfront. The Monarch residential development was proposed by Shipyard Associates, a longtime Hoboken developer who’s already built the luxury Shipyard project on the waterfront.On Aug. 2, the Superior Court of NJ Appellate Division ruled in favor of Shipyard, approving their plan. The ruling followed past decisions in favor of the project.Zimmer said on Thursday, “Despite this setback, I am directing our legal team to continue the legal battle by requesting certification from the Supreme Court to hear this matter,” stated Zimmer in an email to the public.The court said that the city waited too long to sue, and complained that in general, “local governments should not give developers the runaround.”More specifically, the court stated, “The two principal statutes on which our decision rests… represent the Legislature’s considered policy judgment that land use applications should be heard promptly and local governments should not give developers the runaround…In this case, implementing those two statutes requires automatic approval of Shipyard’s application.”The developers of the project want to build two 11-story towers near Sinatra Drive and Shipyard Lane, with 78 residential units. The city, the Fund for a Better Waterfront, and the Tea Building Condo Association are involved in litigation to hold the development to a 1997 plan that included three tennis courts and a tennis pavilion on the North Pier.According to the court, the plan changes were automatically approved after the Planning Board failed to hear the developers’ application and come to a decision in a timely manner.“If there is a lesson to be learned from this case, it is that the rule of law is paramount and cannot be sidestepped to avoid deciding unpopular land use applications,” the court added. “As here, failure to follow the law may insure the success of an application that local objectors vigorously oppose… [The] Planning Board was obligated to hear Shipyard’s application, no matter how controversial it was…But, because the Planning Board yielded to public pressure, and refused to hear Shipyard’s application, the result is automatic approval of the application.”The court additionally noted that the developers will have to provide a public waterfront walkway, as is part of state law requiring all waterfront developers in Hudson County to contribute a segment of a walkway from Bayonne to the George Washington Bridge.“We are pleased with the New Jersey Appellate Division’s opinion today to uphold previous court decisions and recognize Shipyard Associates, L.P.’s legitimate rights under zoning law to pursue development of The Monarch project in Hoboken,” said Kevin J. Coakley, the developer’s attorney. “Our client looks forward to completing The Shipyard development.” ×last_img read more

16-year-old among virus dead in France’s highest daily toll

first_imgThe mother of France’s youngest coronavirus victim has spoken of the “unbearable” loss of her 16-year-old daughter, as the country reported its highest daily toll from the pandemic.French authorities said on Thursday that 365 people had been killed by COVID-19 over the previous 24 hours, taking the national total of those who have died in hospital to 1,696.The figure does not include those who died from the virus at home or at retirement homes, top French health official Jerome Salomon told reporters. Her condition deteriorated and her death was announced on Thursday, with health officials emphasizing that severe cases are very rare in young people.”From the start, we were told that the virus doesn’t affect young people. We believed it, like everyone else,” Sabine said. Her daughter had no known underlying health problems. The teenage girl named Julie A died in Paris, becoming the youngest French victim of the disease that more often afflicts the elderly or people with underlying health conditions.”It’s unbearable,” the girl’s mother Sabine told AFP by phone from her home in the Parisian suburbs. “We were meant to have an ordinary life.”A week ago, Julie developed a mild cough but on Saturday she began to feel short of breath, her mother said.She underwent scans in hospital and several tests for COVID-19, the disease first detected in China late last year that has now killed more than 23,000 worldwide. Train evacuation France has been in lockdown since March 17 in a bid to slow the spread of the epidemic and officials have repeatedly warned it will take time for the measures to bear fruit.Salomon said 29,155 people had tested positive for the virus so far nationwide — adding that the real number of cases was likely far higher as testing was reserved for high-risk patients.He said 3,375 patients were currently in intensive care out of nearly 14,000 people hospitalized after becoming infected.Data showed 42,000 people had been registered by their GP as having the coronavirus over the last week alone, Salomon added — again revealing that testing in France has only revealed a minority of cases.People in the country are only allowed to step outside for pressing matters, such as shopping.”It is very difficult to estimate when the peak will come… people who are ill now were infected before the confinement began,” explained Salomon.”Now there is less contact, people are going out less and get infected less. So we hope there will be fewer people getting sick next week,” he said.French President Emmanuel Macron said he had held a “very good discussion” with his US counterpart Donald Trump about the pandemic.”In response to the COVID-19 crisis, we are preparing with other countries a new strong initiative in the coming days,” he tweeted early Friday, without elaborating.The first train evacuation saw 20 coronavirus patients moved from the country’s hard-hit east to help relieve overstretched hospitals.The specially adapted high-speed train, whose carriages were transformed into intensive care units, took the group to the western Atlantic coast where they will be treated.Another evacuation is planned for Friday, this time by air.

Batesville doctor earns state award

first_imgIn addition to the patients she serves in her office and at Margaret Mary Health, Dr. Robertson serves as the director of nursing for the Sisters of St. Francis where she regularly provides care to sisters who are too ill to travel. “As a testament to her ability to relate to her patients, Dr. Robertson is the most requested physician for the sisters when they are in need of care,” said Diana Schutte, director of nursing for the Sisters of St. Francis. “She’s just wonderful. She looks at the individuality of each patient and addresses them in a way they can understand, especially when caring for patients with dementia.” Batesville, In. — Dr. Mary Robertson recently received the Indiana Doc Hollywood Award at the 2017 Indiana Rural Health Association’s annual conference. This award recognizes individuals who care professionally for those in rural areas across the nation. An internal medicine physician in Batesville, Dr. Robertson was one of four physicians in the state of Indiana who received the honor.Dr. Robertson’s nomination was a compilation of both professional and patient testimonials that showcased her reputation for being a genuinely caring physician. Not only was she recognized for providing excellent care to her patients, but the award was also given for her role in mentoring students and volunteering in the community.Dr. Robertson moved from Chicago to Batesville in 2000 to open her medical practice. Since that time, she has provided compassionate care to a number of patients not only in her office, but at Margaret Mary Health. When asked to describe Dr. Robertson, many of her patients are quick to point out how meticulous she is when making a diagnosis or determining a treatment plan. “Mary leaves no stone unturned – continually delving into medical issues until she is totally convinced the course she is recommending is concise and thorough,” said Judy Laudick, a patient since 2000.center_img Despite the time and dedication it takes to be a mentor to students, Dr. Robertson has welcomed them into her practice so they can work alongside her to better understand what it takes to be a healthcare provider in a rural community.“Mary is a large part of the reason I am a practicing dentist today, emulating what she has done for so many years,” said Amy Feller-Morrin. “On many occasions, I watched Mary balance the life of a full-time professional working mother in a small community. Mary has always been a role model to me.”Anyone who knows Dr. Robertson knows she not only cares about her patients, but she cares about the entire community. Not only does Dr. Robertson support many sporting events and fundraisers in the community, she has volunteered her time on many occasions to speak at community seminars on topics ranging from cancer and heart disease to diabetes and women’s health. She has also assisted with sports physicals for student athletes.An advocate for those who are underinsured, Dr. Robertson devotes countless hours to helping patients get the treatment and medications they need, regardless of their ability to pay. She also volunteers regularly at the Southeast Indiana Health Center (SEIHC), a local clinic that provides medical care to those who can’t afford it.“Since opening our doors in 2013, Dr. Robertson has been a true supporter of the Southeast Indiana Health Center,” said Paul Tyrer, SEIHC manager. “From personally transporting a patient to the emergency room to seeing patients outside of clinic hours, Dr. Robertson’s care and compassion goes beyond caring for the sick.”Perhaps most impressive of all of Dr. Robertson’s feats is her ability to run a successful medical practice while raising a family of her own. Dr. Robertson and her husband, Mike, have three children and seven grandchildren. She is a very active grandma, and her grandkids affectionately call her “Lola.” With six siblings of her own, she also values being involved with her very large, extended family.last_img read more
