Well sports fans, the day that basketball fans around the world (except in Miami) have been dreading is finally upon us. Tonight is game one of the NBA Finals in a rematch of the 2006 Finals between the Dallas Mavericks & the Miami Heat. From the summertime, which featured Chris "I'm a follower" Bosh, Dwayne Wade, and LeBron "Benedict Arnold" James signing long term deals with Miami, they wanted to get to this point and have a chance for a title. However, Dirk Nowitski has played as good, if not better, than anyone else in the playoffs this year. How will Miami stop him? Will the Mavericks spoil the Heat's first (and maybe only) attempt at a title? Can Dallas finish this series? These questions will be answered and more once that first jump ball is made until that final buzzer declaring the winner sounds. We'll see what transpires over the next few days
Disability Doctor Peter J. Ajemian Sentenced In Manhattan Federal Court To Eight Years In Prison For His Role In LIRR Fraud Scheme
Preet Bharara, the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, announced today that PETER J. AJEMIAN, a Board-certified orthopedist, was sentenced today in Manhattan federal court to eight years in prison for his role in the alleged massive fraud scheme in which Long Island Railroad (“LIRR”) workers claimed to be disabled upon early retirement so that they could receive disability benefits to which they were not entitled. Between the late 1990s and 2008, AJEMIAN recommended that at least 734 retiring LIRR employees receive disability benefits, and was responsible for treating nearly half of all LIRR employees who retired and received disability benefits in one four-year period. AJEMIAN pled guilty in January 2013 to one count of conspiracy to commit mail fraud, wire fraud, and health care fraud, and one count of health care fraud before U.S. District Judge Victor Marrero, who also imposed today’s sentence.
