Bernabei & Watchel
The family of a victim of the Navy Yard shooting is suing the Navy, the Veterans Affairs Department and two contractors. They say officials ignored signs that the shooter, Aaron Alexis, was troubled. Alexis' employer had even revoked his security clearance in the weeks before the shooting but did not tell the Navy.
Civil rights and employment attorney Lynne Bernabei of Bernabei & Watchel explains how this tragedy could impact contractors' personnel practices.

Corporation for National and Community Service
The White House is telling agencies to make better use of volunteers. Not the people who spend the weekend helping at the local church or soup kitchen, but national service participants. Those are the folks who commit for 10 months or longer to programs like the Peace Corps or Americorps. But how?
That's where the Corporation for National and Community Service comes in. It's the independent agency that runs Americorps. Wendy Spencer is the CEO. She is leading a new interagency task force on national service.
