Dr. Vern Saboe on the Rights of Injured Workers under Oregon Law
Health and Health Care Forum

Dr. Vern Saboe talks with host host Roberta Hall about injured workers' rights, specifically, the right under Oregon law to choose what treatment provider s/he sees after an injury on the job. In some cases, injured workers do not know their rights and are sent directly to a clinic of the employer’s choosing. We discuss a proposed legislative remedy and how this remedy has been blocked when it has come before the legislature in the past. In this discussion we learn about a means by which the will of legislators, and by extension the will of the people who elect them, can be circumvented, not just in this type of case but perhaps others as well.

Exclusive interview with lawyer Stanley Cohen on effort to release ISIS hostage
Download:
On this KBOO exclusive, we speak with Stanley Cohen, the lifelong activist lawyer whose commitment to justice has brought him to odds with the US government on more than one occasion.

This time, however, Stanley found himself in the position of having to coordinate with State Department officials when he traveled to Jordan in October as a private individual to try to secure the release of Peter Abdul-Rahman Kassig, who had been taken hostage by ISIS.

Whether the Jordanian government intentionally mis-led their powerful U.S. ally, or the U.S. had no intention of allowing it, the release effort was sabotaged when Jordan arrested one of those involved.  Soon after that sabotage, Kassig was killed by his captors.
