All We Want Is Justice: Fighting for Eric Garner
Huffington Post - about 1 year
One year ago, a grand jury failed to indict NYPD officer Daniel Pantaleo for the killing of my father, Eric Garner. As I contemplate this past year -- a year full of upheaval and struggles for justice -- I'm struck by what has changed: nothing. Sure, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo appointed a special prosecutor to investigate police-related killings after my father's death. What's the likelihood that this appointment -- which only lasts one year -- will be renewed by the Republican controlled state legislature? Sure, Pantaleo, the officer who choked my father to death, had to appear before a grand jury, but Staten Island's then District Attorney Daniel Donovan gave immunity to the other officers involved. And where is Donovan now? Congress. This is the part that hurts the most: New York law outlines at least two ways the sitting District Attorney can reconvene a grand jury, but the new Staten Island DA, Democrat Michael McMahon, won't do it. McMahon received and accepted the en ...

Canada considers while Australia acts on gender diversity
Financial Post - over 3 years
While Canadians debate whether regulators should mandate ways to get more women on boards, the Australian Securities Exchange is moving ahead with a proposal that would compel companies to disclose annually how they score on a range of gender diversity metrics. Instead of merely reporting the proportion of men and woman on the board, in management and across the organization, companies listed on the ASX would have to report “gender equality indicators” such as pay equality, and flexible working arrangements developed for employees with families, according to a note published Friday by Australian law firm Holding Redlich. The companies would also have to detail consultations with employees on issues concerning gender equality in the workplace. If the company declined to make such disclosures, it would have to explain why, according to the note penned by Holding Redlich lawyers Michael MacMahon and Phillip Vickery.

Sean Martinfield: Philippe Sly Debuts in 'Cosi fan tutte' at San Francisco Opera
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
At 24, Philippe Sly is an extremely gifted classical vocal artist. Currently a member of the prestigious Adler Fellows, the French Canadian bass-baritone makes both his role debut and main stage debut this summer as Guglielmo in San Francisco Opera's Cosi fan tutte. The production opens Sunday, June 9, and continues with an additional six performances through July 1. The role is tailor made for him. Of Mozart's romantic baritones, the role of Guglielmo needs the glow and fresh idealism of a young man -- someone not in Figaro's shoes and certainly not as egomaniacal as Don Giovanni. After all, the subtitle of Cosi fan tutte is "The School for Lovers." Its comic plot and opera buffa structure bond together as a complete master class and a sort-of field trip on the subject of: The Fickle Nature of Women. In this scenario, the ladies' reputations are probably in tact. With Philippe Sly as Guglielmo, the vibrant texture of his bass-baritone range will be the ideal complement to the ...

Prosecutor seeks sanctions for defense attorneys
3 KATC - almost 5 years
NEW ORLEANS (AP) - A federal prosecutor argues two court-appointed defense attorneys should be sanctioned for challenging a former New Orleans police officer's convictions and death sentence without his authorization. Len Davis, who was sentenced to death for arranging a woman's 1994 murder, has elected to represent himself during his post-conviction proceedings. In March, however, his standby counsel filed a petition asking U.S. District Judge Helen Berrigan to overturn his death sentence or order a new trial. In a court filing Monday, Assistant U.S. Attorney Michael McMahon argues the lawyers should be sanctioned for defying Berrigan's order not to file anything on Davis' behalf without his consent. McMahon also is asking the judge to strike the attorneys' petition, which claims Davis has a serious mental impairment that rendered him incompetent to stand trial.

  • 2008
    Age 50
    On May 28, 2008, the Staten Island Democratic Committee endorsed McMahon to run for the Congressional seat in New York's 13th Congressional District being vacated by retiring 12-year incumbent Republican Vito Fossella.
    More Details Hide Details On September 9, 2008 McMahon defeated opponent Steve Harrison in the Democratic Party primary with 75% of votes to Harrison's 25%. Earlier, on June 11, 2008, McMahon had been endorsed by the city's 12 Democratic congressmen. The 13th is considered to be the most conservative district of the 13 that divide New York City. It is based in Staten Island, which is the base of the city's Republican Party. However, the Republicans had considerable difficulty finding a replacement for Fossella on the ballot, eventually settling on former state assemblyman Robert Straniere. As a result, nearly all major pundits believed McMahon was almost certain to win the seat. Although Democrats have a 17-point edge in registration, its voters are somewhat conservative on social issues and matters regarding "law and order", which kept Republicans in the seat for over a quarter century. In the November election, McMahon won in a landslide, taking 61 percent of the vote to Straniere's 33 percent. With his victory, New York City's congressional delegation became entirely Democratic for the first time in 76 years. This occurred despite the fact that John McCain narrowly carried Staten Island in the presidential election; a Democratic presidential candidate has carried Staten Island only three times since 1952.

    Age 21
    McMahon is a lifelong resident of Staten Island. He is of German and Irish heritage. He grew up in the Stapleton neighborhood on the North Shore and attended parochial schools. He graduated from New York University in 1979, later obtaining a law degree from New York Law School.

O'Donovan, whom he succeeded in the Council. Prior to being elected to public office, McMahon worked as a partner at O'Leary, McMahon & Spero law firm in Staten Island. McMahon served as the Chair of the New York City Council's Sanitation & Solid Waste Management Committee focusing on minimizing the use of trucks to transport garbage and also more evenly distributing the load of waste processing across the five boroughs. In November 2009, McMahon voted along with 38 other Democrats against the Affordable Health Care for America Act and against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act in March 2010. He was the only member of the New York City delegation to do so, and was only one of two New York Democrats, the other being Michael Arcuri, to vote against it.
