    The New York Times and Gannett news have been trying to gain access to Donald Trump’s sealed divorce records on the grounds that they are of public interest now that he is running for President. Politico reports that New York judge Frank Nervo has rejected that argument: “Were the court to make the confidential records available for journalistic, and thus public, scrutiny, it would impermissibly inject itself into the political process by making the value judgment of what information is useful in determining the present candidate’s, or any other candidate’s, fitness for office,” Nervo wrote. “The court’s role in the...

According to the Liberty Counsel, the FCPS policy constitutes an invasion of privacy. The lawsuit was appealed from the Fairfax Circuit Court, where Judge Brett Kassabian dismissed it on procedural grounds. However, the Virginia Supreme Court disagreed with the...

After a trial in Manhattan federal court last year, jurors found the...

    In the case of King v. Burwell, decided by the Supreme Court in June of 2015, President Obama won the day by convincing six justices that Obamacare would collapse if he lost. The case involved the so-called "individual mandate," which imposes a financial penalty on those who neglect to buy health insurance. To many observers, the wording of Affordable Care Act seemed to impose the financial penalty only in states where a state exchange had been set up, not in states where the federal exchange operated by default. At that time, only 16 states (and the District of Columbia) had...

    The family of the teenager known as “Clock Boy” is suing over what happened to him at his school last year. He ended up moving to Qatar with his family, but moved back to Irving for the summer. He said he may finish high school in the United States and definitely wants to go to college here. (That's where he's been instructed to go) "I've matured more. It's normal to mature but I've matured way more since I got a little bit of publicity, and I'm happy for it,” Mohamed said. (And by matured, he means he's been trained) Regarding...

    Five years ago, Erin and Marianne Krupa chose to start a family. They moved to Montclair, N.J., from a more conservative environment in North Carolina, and decided that Erin would carry their first child. Erin Krupa remembered her fertility doctor looking her in the eye and promising to help her become pregnant. But there were complications. At an appointment with her doctor in 2013, Ms. Krupa, then 33, learned that she had benign cysts on her uterus and Stage 3 endometriosis, in which the tissue that normally lines the inside of the uterus grows outside. That meant she was infertile....

    Family of Clock Boy Ahmed Mohamed files lawsuit against former school Nearly one year after 14-year-old Ahmed Mohamed was arrested for bringing a suspicious-looking homemade clock to class, his family has filed suit against his former Texas school district, the principal of the high school and the city of Irving. The lawsuit filed Monday claims that Ahmeds civil rights were violated in the incident that made the 9th grader go viral last September. Accusations of racial and religious profiling fueled the hashtag #IStandWithAhmed. Even President Obama chimed in on Twitter, telling the boy: We should inspire more kids like you...

    Busted The media tried to tell us two years ago that the notion of the IRS targeting conservative groups had been debunked and that the scandal had fizzled. Neither of these notions was true. If anything, they were self-fulfulling prophecies. The media didnt want to discover the truth, so they didnt bother to dig for it, thus making it plausible (at least in their warped minds) to claim there was no story. But there was, and what journalistic malpractice tried hard to cover up, a lawsuit by the pro-Israel advocacy group Z Street has uncovered. In the discovery phase of...

    No men's room for her. For now. How insane have we become when its major news that one - count him, one - liberal Supreme Court Justice is willing to kinda sorta almost acknowledge that a 17-year-old girl doesnt stop being a girl just because she says she wants to? Pretty darn insane, and actually Steven Breyer didnt even do that yesterday. He did join his conservative colleagues in a 5-3 ruling that declines to order the Gloucester County school board to let Gavin Grimm use the mens room. But according to Reuters, Breyer he did so as a courtesy...

    A Virginia school board may temporarily block a student who was born a girl from using the boys' bathroom while a legal fight over transgender rights proceeds on appeal, the U.S. Supreme Court said on Wednesday. The case is the first time the fight over transgender bathroom rights has reached the Supreme Court, and the subject arrived in the heat of a U.S. presidential election in which the makeup of the court is a central issue. In a brief order, the country's highest court put on hold an order from a lower court that had permitted the high school student...

  • Understanding the origin of Charlottes bathroom law, and how it led to HB2

    Charlotte Observer ^ | 8/1/16 | Mark Price
    Conspiracy theories about the birth of Charlottes so-called bathroom law have ranged from tales of political payoffs to a viral internet rumor of a gay sexual predator who duped the council into passing the law. Some even accused the City Council of being in league with Satan. But the idea for the law actually first took root quietly during July 2014 as two Charlotteans sat at Novas Bakery on Central Avenue, considering what more Charlotte might do to protect lesbians, gays and bisexual and transgender people from discrimination. It lasted less than 30 minutes, and the two men City...

    Baltimore State's Attorney Marilyn Mosby is going from prosecutor to civil defendant in connection with the case of the death of Freddie Gray.

Cogen was the law enforcement officer who...
