    President Joe Biden has two seats to fill in the influential court of appeals in the nation’s capital that is often the justices’ springboard to the Supreme Court. They are among the roughly 10% of federal courts that are already open or will be soon, giving Biden his first chance to make his mark on the American judicial system. Without considering an unlikely expansion of the Supreme Court, Biden won’t be able to do anything soon about the entrenched conservative majority on the main court. Judge Clarence Thomas, 72, is the oldest of the court’s conservatives and the three judges appointed by former President Donald Trump, ages 49 to 56, are anticipated to serve decades on the bench. Democrats traditionally don’t focus on the judiciary, but that’s changing after four years of Trump’s rule and the big changes it made. Biden’s appointees also...

    The contentious-administrative court number 1 of Pontevedra considers it “irrelevant” to analyze a driver’s hair to show whether he has used drugs, understanding that only saliva tests and blood tests should be valid.

The magistrate rejects the appeal presented by the driver, who alleged that he had not used drugs and provided a hair analysis test performed at the University of Santiago that had tested negative for drug use in the last five months. Based on the statements of three specialists, the judge concludes that the hair test...

    "In short, we do not need good laws to restrain bad men. We need good men to restrain bad laws." -- G.K. Chesterton (1874-1936)Why do people in power try to silence speech with which they disagree? Last week produced news about the suppression of speech on university campuses. There, the suppression usually occurs through the power of intimidation before the speech is given. Yet, most public lectures on college campuses are public accommodations, meaning the landowner -- the university -- cannot bar the entry of audience members because of their political views, nor can it silence the speakers because of theirs. Ordinarily, the owner of private property can impose whatever regulations he wishes upon those who voluntarily come upon his land. But in our era of ubiquitous government, state legislatures have enacted laws that require that if you invite the public, you must take whoever shows up. And if you...

    Negotiations between the Government and the PP to renew the General Council of the Judiciary (CGPJ) remain paralyzed by the demand of the PP to, among other issues, leave out of the institution the rapporteur of the Gürtel ruling, the magistrate of the National High Court Ricardo de Prada, and the refusal by the Executive to do without him. Nonetheless, the Executive does not consider the negotiations definitively broken. Contacts have dropped in level in recent days but continue and the president, Pedro Sánchez, maintains the reform of the majorities to elect the Judicial Power indefinitely paralyzed, with which it would be confirmed that he stops looking at the PP to seek a quorum with other parties in Congress.

    A federal judge in Oregon said the USA Miss pageant is not required to allow transgender women into the competition because it only permits ‘natural born females’ - a ruling handed down even as the House passed the LGBTQ Equality Act. The discrimination lawsuit brought by Anita Green, a 29-year-old transgender woman, against the privately run organization was dismissed on Thursday by US District Court Judge Michael Mosman. ‘I view it as an association that cannot under the Constitution be required to allow plaintiff to participate in what defendant says is a contradiction of that message,’ Mosman, who was appointed to the bench by George W. Bush, wrote in his ruling, referring to the requirement of 'natural-born females.'  Green sued the United States of America Pageants, which runs United States of America Miss, a competition that is distinct from Miss USA, the contest once owned by former President Donald Trump. ...
    Judge Manuel García Castellón, who is investigating the Kitchen case on the para-police espionage of Luis Bárcenas, has refused to send Congress the summary of this case in view of his “reserved character” and in order to protect judicial independence and the rights of the parties. In a letter sent to Congress by the Supreme Court, the head of Investigative Court 6 of the National High Court justifies in this way the refusal to send Kitchen’s documentation to the Lower House to be used in the investigation commission opened there around this cause. “The reserved nature of the judicial proceedings in the seat of investigation is a fundamental principle”, indicates the magistrate, who cites article 301 of the Criminal Procedure Law, which establishes that “the proceedings of the summary will be reserved and They will not be public until the oral proceedings are opened.“.

Mike King started and didn’t have a particularly good afternoon, but it’s still very early and these stats don’t matter too much. It’s all about preparation for when the real action begins.

    The Catalan elections have been good for Pedro Sánchez. The winner of 14-F, former Minister Salvador Illa, may not be president because the independentistas have reinforced their absolute majority, but in Moncloa they are equally satisfied for three reasons. Carles Puigdemont has lost the crown of his “legitimacy” because Junts will no longer preside over the Generalitat, and that ERC now takes over facilitates a scenario of détente, at least in the short term. The coalition government is reinforced with the victory in votes of the PSC and the result of In Comú Podem, which endured its representation. The same did not happen in the Galician autonomous communities or in the Basque ones, where the Socialists did not do badly, but the purple ones suffered a huge hit. Finally, the Poor center-right results (Cs and PP), next to sorpasso that Vox has done to them in Catalonia, leaves their...
    New York Giants one of the likely Hard Knocks 2021 candidates By: Cay North February 28, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditThe New York Giants have never appeared on HBO’s Hard Knocks, but it remains to be seen how long that will last. The organization has famously been opposed to appearing on the show, but meets the conditions this year to get selected whether they like it or not. The Giants no longer have a first year coach, they haven’t made the playoffs in the past two years, and they haven’t been on the show in the last 10 seasons. That makes them eligible even if the organization doesn’t quite want to show up on the show. On the other hand, the show is generally unpopular for the fans of the team showcased and Giants co-owner John Mara basically said in 2010 that the Giants...

    After listening to Dr. Anthony Fauci suggest last weekend that we should expect to be wearing two masks on our faces everywhere we go until the end of 2022, I began thinking again about first principles. Fauci is entitled to express his opinions. Yet, because he is the president’s chief adviser on COVID-related medical matters, I cringed when I heard what he said. Was this a trial balloon or did he mean it literally? Are these suggestions or will they become commands with the purported force of law? Because the Constitution is the supreme law of the land, it governs the government wherever it goes and whatever it does. The original purpose of the Constitution was twofold: to establish the federal government and to limit its regulatory and taxing powers to the 17 discrete powers articulated in Article I. The former took place in 1789 when the Constitution was ratified....

The court has not yet ruled on the appeal that concerns the former Interior Minister Joaquim Forn, Although according to legal sources, it is foreseeable that he adopts a decision identical to that of the rest of the Lledoners inmates, since he only has to enter to assess the suspension and not the merits...

Colonel heard the verdict remotely from a cell in the detention center where he is located, in Virginia.

The transfer from Madrid to Álava will allow the husband of the Infanta Cristina to enjoy the free weekends near Vitoria, where her mother resides, as well as carrying out the reintegration program for economic crimes from the open section of Zaballa, where she will have to go back to sleep.

    The Prosecutor’s Office asks nine months in jail for the Cartagena footballer Ruben Castro for breaking the restraining order requested by your ex-partner to talk to her for a quarter of an hour at a beach bar. This order was issued by a Seville court in 2013 in the context of an abuse case in which he was acquitted. As the Prosecutor’s Office recalls in a new qualification letter, advanced by ABC and to which Efe has had access, the restraining order issued by the court on May 28, 2013 would be in force “until sentence is passed”, something that happened four years later. However, on an “undetermined date” in the summer 2014, Rubén Castro “met” with his ex-girlfriend “at a leisure establishment on the beach of Conil (Cádiz)” and “approached her (…) despite having knowledge of the previous prohibition that was in force and with total disregard “for the...
    Judge Merrick Garland, President Joe Biden’s attorney general pick, declined to get into details on Monday about the COVID-19 nursing home disaster that plagued New York following Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s mandate. Republican Louisiana Sen. John Kennedy asked Garland how he would have handled COVID-19 had he been chief judge when the pandemic began. Kennedy wondered if he “would have adopted a rule that” deemed it “discriminatory” to ask someone to take a COVID-19 test to return to work after the individual went to the hospital for the virus and was treated and released. Garland said “no,” he would not have adopted that rule. (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Fox News’ Janice Dean Slams ‘Liberal Media,’ Says They Played Role In Covering For Gov. Cuomo’s Nursing Home Failure) Kennedy followed this up by wondering aloud if this is “what happened with a lot of our nursing homes throughout the country.” While Kennedy did not name...
    New York : What punishment or sanction would an unfaithful person deserve? Surely the answer to this question would generate a lot of controversy; some may think that an economic and legal sanction would be fair while others might consider that both are too much, thinking that they are about matters of the heart. About this theme, a curious fact was recorded in the state of Jharkhand, in India, where the authorities of this place solved a problem of infidelity in a somewhat Solomonic way, with the intention of pleasing the people involved. Local media indicated that a man named Rajesh Mahato, resident of the city of Ranchi, He has been married for several years and recently decided to start an extramarital affair with a young woman from another locality, assuring her that he was single. Months later, he decided to abandon his wife and son to start a...

    Judge Merrick Garland, U.S. President-elect Joe Biden's nominee to be U.S. Attorney General, speaks as Biden listens while announcing his Justice Department nominees at his transition headquarters in Wilmington, Delaware, January 7, 2021.Kevin Lamarque | Reuters Merrick Garland is finally getting his day before the Senate. Garland, President Joe Biden's pick to be attorney general, will appear before the Senate Judiciary Committee on Monday for the first day of his confirmation hearings, scheduled to continue through the week. The hearings were delayed amid some partisan squabbling while Democrats and Republicans struggled to come to a power-sharing agreement in the evenly divided Senate. Those delays came after Garland was denied any hearings at all in 2016, when former President Barack Obama nominated the centrist judge to the Supreme Court following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, the conservative stalwart. The federal appeals court judge is expected to be confirmed swiftly...
    EFE videos La Lava Jato “has corroded the rule of law,” denounces Lula’s lawyer Sao Paulo, Feb 18 (EFE) .- The lawyer of former president Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva, Cristiano Zanin, affirmed in an interview with Efe that the anti-corruption operation Lava Jato has “corroded” the rule of law in Brazil, and maintained that it has had “serious” reflections on the justice, economy and sovereignty of the country. “It is a great scandal for the Brazilian justice that needs to be investigated. It is time to correct the damage that Lava Jato has done to the Brazilian justice and to the country as a whole, to the sovereignty” of Brazil, stressed Zanin, who leads the defense of Lula in the various processes opened in court against the former president.

    The Provincial Court of Madrid has decided keep free to the dancer Rafael Amargo and the producer Eduardo de los Santos Against the criteria of the Prosecutor’s Office, in favor of his entry into provisional prison. The Hearing, as legal sources have informed EFE, rejects the appeal of the Prosecutor’s Office and confirms the order of the Court of Instruction number 17 of Madrid that agreed the release of Amargo, De los Santos, the dancer’s wife and another person. All were arrested on December 1, by the Police, for alleged drug trafficking offenses and membership in a criminal organization. Two days later, the judge released them with the prohibition to leave Spain and the obligation to go to court twice a month. The Prosecutor’s Office appealed that decision, understanding that there are “enough” indications that Amargo was “permanently” dedicated to the distribution of narcotic substances, for which he requested...
    The explosion, caused on August 4 by an enormous quantity of ammonium nitrate stored “without precaution” according to the authorities’ own admission, had more than 200 dead, 6,500 injured and devastated entire districts of the capital. “The court of cassation presided over by judge Jamal al-Hajar has decided to transfer the investigation (…) from the hands of investigating judge Fadi Sawan to another judge,” said the judicial source speaking under the on condition of anonymity. The new judge has not yet been appointed, she said. In December, Mr. Sawan indicted the resigning Prime Minister Hassan Diab and three former ministers, Ali Hassan Khalil, Ghazi Zaayter and Youssef Fenianos, provoking an outcry within the political class. Accused of “negligence and causing hundreds of deaths,” officials refused to attend Mr. Sawan’s summons. And shortly after, MM. Khalil and Zaayter, two parliamentarians, had presented a request to challenge Mr. Sawan, whom they...
    The Constitution is the supreme law of the land, thus, all government behavior must conform to it. It is, of course, notwithstanding its supremacy, an imperfect document. Its original iteration in 1789 -- and even after the addition of the Bill of Rights in 1791 -- implicitly recognized slavery, permitted the states to limit voters to adult white landowning men and did not require the states to protect personal liberty. Under the Constitution, impeachment -- a charge accusing a present or former federal officeholder of paramount wrongdoing -- can only be had if the charge is for a criminal act. The constitutional language -- "treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors" -- means the criminal act must be grave and strike at the security of the republic. President Andrew Johnson was impeached in 1868 for firing his secretary of war, in defiance of a statute -- which was no...
    The former adviser of Podemos, Dina Bousselham, has charged against the judge investigating the Villarejo case for his “excessive and undisguised interest” in attributing a crime to her and to Vice President Pablo Iglesias in the case about the theft of his mobile in 2015, whose information appeared in the possession of the former commissioner. In a recent letter, Bousselham accuses the judge of not ceasing in his “effort” to blame both her and the leader of Podemos “in the alleged commission” of crimes when, in reality, she says, they are “victims harmed to date” of the alleged illicit activities of Villarejo. He does not question that the judge of the National Court, Manuel García Castellón, has agreed to reopen the case after the refusal of the Supreme Court to impute Pablo Iglesias for this case, but the diligence that he has requested from the Police so that inform if...
    A judge has ruled Citibank cannot recoup half a billion dollars of its own money that it accidentally wired to lenders in one of the 'biggest blunders in banking history'. Citigroup intended to wire a $7.8million interest payment on August 11 to lenders for cosmetic company Revlon, acting as its loan agent. But the bank accidentally transferred $893million, appearing to pay off an entire loan which was not due until 2023, and did not notice the gaffe until the following day, which they blamed on human error. Some lenders returned the money after noticing the mistake but others refused to pay it back insisting the money was owed, leaving Citibank $501million out of pocket. US District Judge Jesse Furman in Manhattan ruled the transfers were 'final and complete transactions, not subject to revocation'.  A judge has ruled Citibank cannot recoup half a billion dollars of its own money that...

    VIDEO3:3403:34A lot of this is a man-made disaster, says Texas county judgeThe News with Shepard Smith Millions of people are without power as Texas faces one of the worst storms in its history, Harris County Judge Lina Hidalgo told CNBC's "The News with Shepard Smith." "We're seeing, basically, the winter version of Hurricane Harvey," Hidalgo said. "It's an incredibly tragic situation" More than a dozen people in Texas have died due to exposure to elements and several have died due to carbon monoxide poisoning, Hidalgo said. She said that due to power outages, people have tried to run heat from their cars in their garages, which she said has contributed to the more than 300 calls about carbon monoxide poisoning the county received. More than four million Texas residents don't have power after a historic snowfall and single-digit temperatures, according to reports. The freezing temperatures created increased demand for electricity that,...

    ABC/Eric McCandless Season 30 of Dancing With the Stars will likely air at some point in 2021, though the show has yet to officially be renewed for another season following season 29’s end in late 2020. For season 29, Dancing With the Stars judge Len Goodman had to step aside due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which left a space open at the judge’s table for a season. That seat was subsequently filled by six-time Mirrorball champion Derek Hough. That meant that the judges on season 29 of the show were Carrie Ann Inaba, Bruno Tonioli and Derek Hough. Fans seemed to enjoy Hough’s presence at the table, but some missed Goodman and his tough critiques. Read on to learn more about what we know about who fans would like to see at the judge’s table for the new season.Fans Want Derek Hough to Return to the Table View this post on...
    A sentence recognizes the right of a citizen to record a police intervention to prevent or alert of any police abuse, but warns that uploading it to social networks may involve “an irregular use of images” and a “media exposure for no reason” by the agents. The Criminal Court number 4 of Pamplona makes this reflection in the sentence where it condemns a charged to 3 months in prison for a crime of resistance with the mitigation of drunkenness, and to compensate an agent of the Municipal Police with 125.28 euros. The judge analyzes the use of the images captured by the security forces when addressing the case of a defendant who recorded and rebuked the agents who were about to punish him for breaching health regulations when consuming alcohol on the street on November 7, 2020 in Pamplona. The agent stopped the recording and returned the phone While recording...

    The former treasurer of the PP Luis Bárcenas has confirmed this Monday before the judge of the National Court Manuel García Castellón that the parapolice operation called ‘Kitchen’ stole compromising documentation for the PP, including a recording of Mariano Rajoy, as stated in a letter sent to the Anticorruption Prosecutor’s Office. The head of the Central Court of Instruction number 6 has taken a statement as a witness in the framework of the separate piece of the case ‘Tandem’, which investigates the creation in 2013 of this operation paid for with reserved funds.

    Ever since footage of him outside of the U.S. Capitol went viral on the day of the Jan. 6th siege, Texas-based lawyer Paul M. Davis has embarked upon a self-styled quest of J.R.R. Tolkien-esque proportions. Davis filed a federal lawsuit asking nothing less than the wholesale replacement of the U.S. federal government. He said the FBI visited his home to ask him for his statement, and a federal judge referred him to the Disciplinary Committee for the Western District of Texas. After Law&Crime obtained his once-confidential disciplinary inquiry through an anonymous source, Davis granted what he described as his first interview to the press since he went to Washington. “I’ve gotten so many requests in the media, and I haven’t responded to a single one because I’ve been so focused on the case,” Davis said in a phone interview, referring to his embattled lawsuit asking a judge to block his...
    The Court number three of Linares (Jaén) ordered this Sunday the entry into prison of an agent and a deputy inspector of the National Police who last Friday beat a Carlos, a 49-year-old man, under the gaze of his youngest daughter, 14, who was also attacked during the fight. The event it happened on the terrace of a bar from the town while the police were off duty. It was recorded by the mobiles of several witnesses. “I went out the door of the premises and I elbowed myself with a man, who had gray hair (the sub-inspector). Then he told me: ‘Let’s go 1-0’. And I took it to heart and I said: ‘Well, well we’ll tie another day“, the victim related to The Spanish. However, the discussion did not stop there. As the journalist Carlos Quilez has revealed in La Sexta, the other agent got up from the...
    Grace Kinstler wowed the panel with her powerful vocals. American Idol judges heaped praise the final contestant of the show’s first audition episode of Season 19. They compared her performance to that of first Idol winner Kelly Clarkson. Grace Kinstler from Chicago, Illinois, was the last hopeful to stand in front of Lionel Richie, Katy Perry, and Luke Bryan during the Idol‘s season premiere. The 20-year-old first showed off her vocal prowess with “Midnight Train to Georgia” made famous by Gladys Knight and the Pips in 1973. She was asked by Luke to sing a second song. Grace pulled “Natural Woman” out of her arsenal. Her intent to perform that tune did not come without a stern warning from the “Daisies” singer. “The legend that is Carole King wrote it.

    Donald Trump was acquitted after a second trial before the US Senate, which this time tried for his role in the January 6 violence on Capitol Hill. American press review. Por the second time acquitted. Former US President Donald Trump escaped a guilty verdict on Saturday after a historic trial before the US Senate, which tried him for his alleged role in the January 6 violence on Capitol Hill. An acquittal which is, unsurprisingly, the front page of the media across the Atlantic. Senators were a majority – 57 out of 100 – to vote for a conviction of the billionaire. But it would have taken two-thirds of the upper house (67 votes) to reach a guilty verdict which could have been followed by a sentence of ineligibility.

    Pharrell Williams received good news on Friday after a judge ruled that he did not lie under oath. The judgment in favor of the 47-year-old musician and songwriter appears to be the end of the years-long legal battle in which the estate of the late singer Marvin Gaye sued Williams and his collaborator Robin Thicke over their single Blurred Lines.

    It’s unclear to me exactly how Jeanine Pirro— lawyer, former district attorney and then would-be politician— lost the plot and reinvented herself as Judge Box of Wine, the most North Korean of the Fox News propagandists. But here we are. She’s smooth-haired Lou Dobbs in a cocktail dress, yelling at you every Saturday night, her breath heavy with shaming and possibly rosé. Trumpism has been good for Judge Box of Wine. She’s benefited from the largesse of Trump himself, with interviews and many tweets back when Trump was on Twitter not to mention the pardon for her ex-husband—the ex who cheated on her and his taxes but that she pressed for and the president provided in what was literally his final hour in office. But things are different now. Pirro is named along with Dobbs and Maria Bartiromo in the $2.7 billon lawsuit voting machine company Smartmatic has brought against...

    The investigating judge number 42 of Madrid, Juan José Escalonilla, who investigates the electoral contracts signed between the company Neurona Comunidad and Podemos, concludes in the proceedings in a until now secret piece of his investigations, that This company was created ‘ad hoc’ for the subscription in 2019 of a contract with Podemos without having “any previous experience in the provision of such type of services in the course of an electoral campaign” and without workers. From the investigation carried out by both the Central Union of Economic and Fiscal Delinquency (UDEF) of the National Police and the information sent by the Prosecutor’s Office of the Court of Accounts, the judge assumes that in February 2019 Unidos Podemos drew up a draft of contract for the provision of services with Neurona Comunidad (as of that date not yet constituted) by which said company undertook to develop the strategy lines of...
    In October 2019, after an official trip to South Africa, Meghan Markle and Prince Harry began their crusade against the British tabloids. Specifically, against Associated Newspaper Limited, a company that includes media such as the Daily Mail, the Web MailOnline or the Sunday Mail on Sunday, which have been quite belligerent against the exactriz, although later they also announced that they stopped collaborating in any way with The Mirror, The Sun or Express. At trial, Meghan lost the first stake; getting the friends who had given an interview to the magazine Peopleremain anonymous and they did not come to declare, the second won round… and now it has won again (although not quite yet). Judge Mark Warby of the High Court of London has given the reason to Markle this Thursday after two years of litigation in your privacy violation lawsuit when the aforementioned media published the letter he wrote,...
    The judge grants Rodrigo Rato parole for the ‘black cards’
    To fully understand this story, let’s go back two years. At that time Roland, an 88-year-old Toulouse resident, decided to leave his house in order to be closer to his wife, placed in nursing home. Even if he goes there regularly to maintain it, his “abandoned” house ends up attracting a group of squatters who take possession of the place. We are in September 2020. The neighborhood, who quickly realizes that something is wrong, warns Roland. Too late. According to French law, it is no longer possible to evict squatters who have been living for more than 48 hours in accommodation. The case then goes to court. A month later, the decision fell: the squatters could not be dislodged before the winter break in June. Roland, who wanted to sell his house in order to get closer to his wife, finds himself blocked, prevented from entering his own home,...
    Judge Dabresil is among a group of 23 people arrested by police overnight from Saturday to Sunday and accused by the authorities of “attempted coup”. “The investigating judge did not bother to analyze the charges since he knows that he is not competent: he simply proceeded to the release of the judge at the Court of Cassation Yvickel Dabresil”, added the ‘lawyer. The day before, the situation of Judge Dabresil had given rise to an imbroglio. His lawyers announced in the afternoon that they had obtained a release order, but officers from the prison administration then refused them access to the prison where he was detained, as well as to the bailiffs they had invited . “Yesterday, force triumphed, but today is a great victory for the law,” commented Me Maisonneuve. Among those arrested last weekend, 17 are still detained in the civil prison of Croix-des-Bouquets, on the outskirts...

Both Jamie and a financial company, Bessemer Trust Co., will be coconservators moving forward. Britney's lawyer says they still ultimately want Jamie removed entirely from the conservatorship. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. Less than a week after the premiere of the "Framing Britney Spears" New York Times documentary drew new attention to her conservatorship, a judge has made a new ruling in her legal case. As reported by Variety, Judge Brenda Penny "overruled Jamie Spears' objections to an order establishing Bessemer Trust Co. as a coconservator of daughter Britney Spears' estate."  Britney's father, Jamie, had objected to the proposed coconservatorship with Bessemer (a third-party financial institution), "saying it improperly reduced his powers over his daughter's estate."

    Britney Spears' conservatorship battle continued on Thursday with a judge denying her father Jamie Spears' objections to establishing Bessemer Trust Co as a co-conservator over her estate.   The pop star filed a petition last fall to replace her father as the sole conservator. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Brenda Penny denied the petition, instead ruling that Jamie should split the role with an independent financial institution.  At issue in Thursday's hearing were objections that Jamie raised over the proposed order Britney's attorney, Samuel Ingham, drew up effectuating the co-conservatorship with Bessemer.  Jamie's lawyer, Vivian Thoreen, argued that the order improperly reduced his powers over his daughter's estate, according to Variety.  Ingham responded by telling the court that the purpose of the order was to give both Jamie and Bessemer 'an equal division of responsibility, in the hopes that they would sit down and figure out together the best way to handle...
    “Judge Fadi Sawan has resumed his investigation after a forced hiatus of nearly two months,” said this source. In this context, the magistrate “collected (Thursday) the testimony of the former head of the army, Jean Kahwagi”, she added. In the coming days, Sawan is due to interview other key people in the investigation into the explosion, which left more than 200 people dead and devastated entire neighborhoods in the Lebanese capital. The magistrate suspended the investigation on December 17, a week after indicting outgoing Prime Minister Hassan Diab and three former ministers: Ali Hassan Khalil (Finance), Ghazi Zaayter and Youssef Fenianos (Public Works and Transport). MM. Khalil and Zaayter, two parliamentarians, had presented a request to challenge the investigating judge for “legitimate suspicion” of incompetence and violation of the Constitution.

    Amid arguments in the Senate over whether the impeachment of former President Donald Trump is constitutional, and in the House over whether $1.9 trillion is enough money to borrow and distribute to select taxpayers and institutions, there have been rumblings among Democrats to make it more difficult for the Supreme Court to invalidate or permit states to gnaw away at Roe v. Wade. Roe v. Wade is the 1973 Supreme Court opinion that essentially establishes -- within the privacy of the patient-physician relationship -- the right to choose to abort a baby in the womb. The opinion holds that during the first trimester of pregnancy, the states have no interest in regulating abortion beyond the health of the mother. During the second trimester, the states can regulate the procedures used, but they may not ban or interfere with abortions. During the third trimester, the states may ban or permit abortions....
    The judge who presides over the Chamber that has allowed the reopening of bars in Euskadi, Luis Ángel Garrido, stated that an epidemiologist “is a family doctor who has taken a course”, and opined that the measures against COVID-19 adopted in Spain and in all countries “They do not differ much from those that occurred in the Middle Ages.” During a gathering held on Radio Popular de Bilbao last Monday, the day before the order of the Superior Court of Justice of the Basque Country was made public authorizing the opening of bars and restaurants in the Basque municipalities located in the “red zone” Due to its high incidence of COVID-19, the judge noted that epidemiology “is not as advanced as it seems.” “Suppose that sexually transmitted diseases rise 2,000 percent and I, the great epidemiologist in the area, arrived and I said: very easy, be you two years without...

    Phillip Faraone/Getty Images for Politicon A federal judge in Florida ordered right-wing political commentator Dan Bongino to pay The Daily Beast more than $30,000 in attorney’s fees stemming from a defamation lawsuit he filed against the news organization that was previously dismissed as being “without merit.” In Dec. 2019, Bongino filed a lawsuit in South Florida’s U.S. District Court claiming The Daily Beast had “smear[ed]” his reputation and harmed his business by publishing an article titled “Dan Bongino Out at NRATV – BONGI-NO-MORE” in December 2018.

    An Albany judge has ruled that the Cuomo administration's Health Department broke New York State law by failing to provide totals of all nursing home deaths caused by COVID-19 to a watchdog group that had requested the records.
