  • Trump Administration Sues California Over Immigration Laws

    WASHINGTON — The Trump administration escalated what had been a war of words over California’s immigration agenda, filing a lawsuit late Tuesday that amounted to a pre-emptive strike against the liberal state’s so-called sanctuary laws. The Justice Department sued California; Gov. Jerry Brown; and the state’s attorney general, Xavier Becerra, over three state laws passed in recent months, saying they make it impossible for federal immigration officials to do their jobs and deport criminals who were born outside of the United States. The Justice Department called the laws unconstitutional and asked a judge to block them. The lawsuit was the...
  • Suit alleges sex-and-booze-filled life at the Bronx DA’s office

    02/27/2018 5:39:53 AM PST · by ChicagoConservative27 · 14 replies
    The Bronx District Attorney’s Office is a hotbed of misconduct where prosecutors and other staffers neglect their work to shop, drink booze and have sex, according to a $15 million notice of claim filed Monday by a suspended employee who’s involved with an embattled NYPD cop. Crime analyst Crystal Rivera also claims that Bronx DA Darcel Clark opened a baseless probe of her boyfriend, Det. David Terrell, to “publicly vilify” him and cover up her office’s “incompetence and unethical practices.” Rivera’s wide-ranging allegations were made in a filing with the city Comptroller’s Office that’s required before suing the city. The...

    A woman who accused Donald Trump of raping her two decades ago when she was a 13-year-old aspiring teen model has again dropped a federal lawsuit over the alleged assaults. The accuser, identified in the lawsuit by the pseudonym "Jane Doe," was expected to appear at a news conference in Los Angeles Wednesday, but that appearance was abruptly canceled.   The lawyer who organized the event, Lisa Bloom, said Trump's accuser had received threats and was too frightened to show up. In the most recent suit, Trump's accuser asserted that while she was exploring a modeling career in 1994, she...

    The case was over the abduction of Dong-Shik, a South Korean who was a permanent resident of the US and had spent seven years providing aid and proselytizing to North Korean defectors. An Israeli NGO announced on Monday that a US federal court in Washington, DC has granted it a historic $330 million default award judgment against North Korea in a civil damages trial for wrongful death, torture and kidnapping. The judgment, only announced Monday, but written on April 9, included $15 million dollars each to the son and brother of Reverend Dong Shik Kim, presumed dead, as well as...

    The Army doesn't have an Iron Man suit. Yet. But the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Warrior Web program is a step closer to developing a soft, low-powered exosuit that will augment the physical capabilities of soldiers. Worn under the uniform, the proposed suit will allow troops to carry 100-plus pounds of equipment without risking the joint and back injuries that typically accumulate in the field.

    Sterling’s legal team said, “No one approves of what our client said on that recording. There’s no denying that. But it was recorded in the comfort of his own home and later obtained and publicized illegally. Not to mention, the mafia tactics the league is using to try to muscle Mr. Sterling out of his rightfully owned franchise are highly illegal and even unconstitutional. We have no doubt that our client will be exonerated when it is all said and done.”

    While Silver said he had not polled the owners, he expressed confidence there will be sufficient support to oust Sterlin. Silver's bold prediction suggests he has the necessary votes. That said, expect there to be some debate among owners. No owner will defend Sterling's racism... 1. Neither the Clippers nor Sterling is in financial trouble. Article 13 was designed as an extraordinary remedy for such a problem -- not other problems. While sponsors have dropped their deals with the Clippers and players have contemplated boycotts, the team appears to be in strong financial shape with a deep-pocketed, if reviled, owner....

    Days after George Zimmerman’s July 13 acquittal in the killing of Trayvon Martin, Zimmerman’s lawyer in civil court, James Beasley, has confirmed that he will move to resume his client's libel suit against NBC. “We are going to get the libel case restarted,” Beasley wrote in a July 15 email to iMediaEthics. Beasley is currently requesting a lift on the stay on the defamation case, requested by NBC in February while awaiting the outcome of Zimmerman’s criminal case. In December 2012, Zimmerman filed a defamation lawsuit against NBC for misrepresenting the record of his call with a 911 responder when...

    The temptation to bully can be too great to resist.If you don't like something or the someone who's done that something, you want to squish them -- if you're bigger than they are, that is.One method often used is to get a fancy lawyer to write a cease-and-desist letter, designed to stop the recipient from breathing.The township of West Orange, N.J., decided that Jake Freivald was a nail for its hammer. He had exercised sufficient temerity to operate a Web site called WestOrange.info. It's not a fancy site. And it certainly doesn't purport to have any affiliation with the township....
