  • GOP sues to force Obama compliance on Fast and Furious

    House Republicans on Monday asked the federal courts to intervene and force the Obama administration to turn over documents from the botched Fast and Furious gun-walking operation, escalating what had been a simmering constitutional crisis. House Speaker John A. Boehner said President Obama and his team were ignoring a congressional subpoena — something the courts have long recognized as valid — and said lawmakers were left with no choice but to ask the third branch to referee. “By stonewalling Congress and ignoring a contempt order, the Justice Department has left the House no choice but to take legal action so...

    House Republicans will file a civil suit against Attorney General Eric Holder during the August recess, House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-CA) has told NBC News. House Republicans will file suit in an effort to compel Holder to release documents associated with the failed "Fast and Furious" gun-walking operation. "We'll be filing a civil case during the break," Issa told NBC, "We will expect a day in court before a federal judge, which we have a 100 percent chance that the judge will hold that these documents should be delivered." During negotiations between House Republicans and Holder in June,...

    Diocese of Bridgeport Newspaper ^ | May 30-31, 2009 | Bishop William E. Lori
    May 30, 2009 Dear Friends in Christ: It is with a great degree of shock and dismay that I must share with you a recent action that the State of Connecticut has initiated with respect to our Diocese. As you will recall, following the surprise introduction of Bill 1098, which singled out Catholic parishes and would have forced them to reorganize contrary to Church law and the First Amendment, our Diocese responded in the most natural, spontaneous, and, frankly, American, of ways:  We alerted our membership – in person and through our website;  We encouraged them to exercise...

    Former Duke University lacrosse player Reade Seligmann, who had been cleared of charges he and two teammates raped a hired stripper, says he feels sorry for disgraced prosecutor Mike Nifong’s family — but not necessarily for Nifong. Seligmann says he was hurt by Nifong’s statement last week at a North Carolina bar disciplinary committee hearing that the former prosecutor still thinks “something happened in that bathroom” at that now-infamous team party last year. “It was probably one of the most difficult parts of the hearing,” Seligmann, 21, told TODAY host Meredith Vieira during an exclusive interview on Monday. “I really...

    The saga continues on Friday morning in the Los Angeles superior courtroom of Judge Aurelio Munoz. Peter Paul, who has been seeking justice for five years, will soon learn when discovery is to begin in his unprecedented civil trial against a former president and a sitting senator. Both defendants have the same last name -- Clinton. David Kendall, the man who was in possession of documentation for $1.6 million spent by Peter Paul in the 2000 Hillary for Senate campaign, but stood by and allowed a third fraudulent FEC report to be filed, will be arguing again on behalf of...

    Said she was sorry for misleading statements to cops OCTOBER 12--Weeks before the scheduled start of the Kobe Bryant trial, his female accuser wrote a letter apologizing for intentional misstatements she made when first interviewed last year by Colorado police. In a handwritten letter to state investigator Gerry Sandberg (a copy of which you'll find below), the woman claimed that one such "mix-up" was triggered by her concern that Detective Doug Winters, lead investigator on the Bryant case, "did not believe what had happened to me." The woman's letter, which was included in a stack of documents just released by...

    DENVER - Advocacy groups urged the media Thursday to refrain from identifying the woman accusing Kobe Bryant of rape while she pursues her civil lawsuit against the NBA star, despite a court ruling that will lift her anonymity in less than two weeks. The woman's attorneys had asked U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch to allow her to be known only as Jane Doe in court documents and during hearings. The judge rejected the request late Wednesday, saying it would be unfair to Bryant and that her privacy has already been invaded to the extent that granting her anonymity would have...

    Accuser must use her real name in lawsuit, judge rules A federal judge ruled Wednesday that the woman who accused Kobe Bryant of rape must use her real name in the lawsuit she filed against him. U.S. District Judge Richard Matsch ordered her lawsuit, now titled "Jane Doe vs. Kobe Bryant," to be retitled on Oct. 20. He did not explain the delay in retitling. Bryant had filed a motion opposing the woman's effort to remain anonymous, as had the Rocky Mountain News. "Public confidence in the results of court proceedings require that they be open to observation," Matsch said...

    September 27, 2004 -- Is she or isn't she? The lawyer for Kobe Bryant's accuser yesterday refused to deny reports his client is pregnant by a man she met while at a drug and alcohol treatment center in Florida, but insisted it's not why she declined to go forward with the case. Lin Wood called news reports that the 20-year-old woman is at least eight weeks pregnant "an invasion of privacy." Fox News reported that the woman — who claimed the Lakers star raped her in a hotel room in June 2003 only to tell prosecutors this month she could...

    Geneva Says, ‘I Quit’ Poynter Online is a website for news people that says it’s “everything you need to be a better journalist.” Well, our old friend Geneva Overholser, who always wants to be a better journalist, has a big-time issue with Poynter Online. In the event you’ve forgotten who Overholser is, let me refresh your memory. She made some news herself when she was editor at the local paper a few years ago. While Overholser was editor, the managing editor was Dave Westphal, Westphal had been one of the sports editors with whom I worked in my earlier writing...

    EAGLE, Colo. - Attorneys in Kobe Bryant's sexual assault case began questioning jury candidates behind closed doors Monday after the judge rejected a request to let the media listen in. The NBA star's right to a fair trial and the jury candidates' right to privacy outweigh "qualified" First Amendment rights of access, District Judge Terry Ruckriegle said after hearing from media attorneys. The private questioning would be "very limited," the judge said. Areas to be covered in private include the potential jurors' personal experience with sexual assault, any potential racial prejudice they harbor, whether pretrial publicity has prompted them to...

    Los Angeles Times ^ | 08/11/2004 | Steve Henson
    The woman accusing Kobe Bryant of sexual assault filed a civil suit in federal court Tuesday, a move experts said was another blow to the prosecution in the criminal case against the Laker star. The 11-page suit, filed in Denver, requests a jury trial for unspecified compensatory and punitive damages. Analysts said the filing could threaten a criminal trial, because the defense probably would point out to jurors that Bryant's accuser is seeking money civilly. The suit said the 20-year-old woman has been subjected to "public scorn, hatred and ridicule" since the alleged rape June 30, 2003, at a Colorado...
