    Organized labor, already reeling from a potentially major financial hit thanks to a Supreme Court ruling last week that could result in millions of public-sector workers cutting off funding, could be subject to another blow from the justices: class-action suits from those workers seeking to get paid back from the unions. In a little-noticed action, the Supreme Court invalidated a ruling last week by the 7th Circuit Court denying class-action certification in a case called Riffey v. Rauner. The case involved nonunion state-subsidized Illinois home healthcare workers seeking to be repaid the funds that for years they were forced to...

    After the royal engagement to Prince Harry, Meghan Markle announced she wouldn’t be returning to her job as an actress on the hit TV show “Suits.” “I don’t see it as giving anything up,” Markle told BBC’s Mishal Husain in an interview. “I see it as a change. It’s a new chapter.”But that didn’t stop Jill Filipovic, author of “The H-Spot: The Feminist Pursuit of Happiness,” from calling that decision problematic. “[I]t’s so disappointing to see that she will be giving up her acting career after she weds,” Filipovic wrote in CNN, adding: In dozens of write-ups about the Markle-Windsor...

  • Aides: Rep. Grimm Crashed Thursday Press Conference With Party Leaders

    Whatever his failings, embattled Rep. Michael Grimm isnt bashful. The Staten Island Republican crashed a press conference held by House GOP leaders Thursday, according to House aides, and emerged touting his proximity to party leaders whove steered clear of him since his indictment last month. Grimm spokesman Nick Iacono said the congressman, a Marine Corps veteran, was welcomed to attend the news conference where House Republicans urged the Senate to take up a bill making it easier to fire officials at the Department of Veterans Affairs. But two House aides said the Staten Island congressman showed up uninvited and deliberately...

    Dieting and exercising are perhaps the most popular New Years Resolutions, but don't worry if you've indulged on a few too many holiday treats this year. Swimsuits are already trickling onto retail shelves and the spotlight is on one-piece swimwear, not bikinis. Yes, that extra inch to pinch around your tummy can potentially remain hidden all year. Every stylish celebrity from the curvier gals like Beyonce, Christina Hendricks, and Kim Kardashian, to the skinny-minnies like Taylor Swift, Kate Moss, and Kirsten Dunst are rocking one-piece bathing suits, or "maillots." As a result, the rest of us are heading directly...

    Todays Roman Catholic calendar lists May 21st as the feast day of St. Christopher Magallanes, a martyr killed for celebrating Mass during the Cristero War in Mexico. Perhaps Catholics today may want to recall St. Thomas More the patron saint of lawyers, who was executed for refusing to agree to a mandate that gave Henry VIII the prerogative of defining religious expression in England. Dozens of Catholic institutions filed lawsuits today against the Department of Health and Human Services over its mandate and its narrow definition of religious practice: Catholic archdioceses and institutions filed suit in federal district courts...

Nearly every national chain is under legal attack in California for failing to provide "suitable seating" for cashiers and other employees who are expected to spend most of their workday on their feet.

    Litigation and regulatory actions tied to Goldman Sach's selling of mortgage-backed securities could cost the investment bank an additional $3.4 billion in legal expenses, Goldman's said in a Securities and Exchange Commission filing this week. The $3.4 billion is a "worst-case scenario" projection and does not reflect the true risk Goldman faces, but rather what could happen if the firm lands on the losing end of all litigation, a spokesman for the firm said. The company's projection of greater-than-budgeted for legal expenses puts it in company with Bank of America, Wells Fargo & Co. and JPMorgan & Co., all of...
  • States fear that five words in Obama health law will open door to lawsuits. (Another Surprise!)

    The addition to existing law of five words, and a comma, may cause a world of hurt to state governments. Tucked away on page 466 of President Obamas 2,704-page health-care bill is a provision that changes the definition of medical assistance, the term describing what states are required to provide to Medicaid recipients. States have in the past been required to provide payment for services to physicians. Now, under the new definition, states will be liable for ensuring provision of the care and services themselves. In other words, states are legally on the hook not only to ensure that Medicaid...

    A man, they say, can be judged by his friends. If that's the case, then Barack Obama can surely be judged by George Clooney. The UK Daily Mail reported this week that the "Ocean's Eleven" actor regularly speaks with and text messages the presumptive Democratic nominee, advising him on everything from fashion to foreign policy. "George has been giving him advice on things such as presentation, public speaking and body language and he also emails him constantly about policy, especially the Middle East," stated a Democratic Party insider. "George is pushing him to be more 'balanced' on issues such as...

    On the big screen, films like Robocop, Universal Soldier and forthcoming release Iron Man show humanoid robots with superhuman powers. But in Utah they are turning science fiction into reality. We are at a research facility on the outskirts of Salt Lake City, ringed by beautiful snow-capped mountains. Once they held the Winter Olympics here; now they are testing endurance in other ways. The aluminium limbs gleam in the brilliant sunshine, as the strange metal skeleton hangs from a safety harness at the outdoor testing site. It seems to be treading water; actually its programme is telling it to keep...

    SMYRNA, Ga., Dec. 5 In Mayor Michael R. Bloombergs campaign to remove illegal guns from New York Citys streets, he sued 27 out-of-state gun dealerships last year over what he said were illegal sales. Most agreed to settle, while others chose to take their chances in court. But here, in this town of 48,000 where Julia Roberts was born, the fight has become deeply personal. Jay Wallace, who owns Adventure Outdoors, one of the major gun distributors in the area and a defendant in one of the citys lawsuits, is countersuing Mr. Bloomberg, alleging fraud, slander and libel.

    Brazilian Gay Groups Launch Multiple Lawsuits to Silence Christian Opposition Flurry of Lawsuits is Attempt to Prevent Criticism of Homosexual Movement By Matthew Cullinan Hoffman BRAZIL, August 29, 2007 ( recent weeks, homosexual groups in Brazil have attempted to silence their opponents with a flurry of lawsuits that take advantage of Brazil's pro-gay political climate. On August 5th, the Brazilian Association of Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals, and Transgender People (ABGLT) filed a criminal complaint against several websites for exposing the fact that the leader of Brazil's homosexual movement, Luiz Mott, is a promoter of pedophilia and pederasty (see LifeSiteNews' recent coverage...

    There are many versions of the clich that a conservative is a liberal who has been mugged, and Robert Bork has just given rise to another. A tort plaintiff, it turns out, is a critic of tort lawsuits who has slipped and fallen at the Yale Club. Mr. Bork, of course, is the former federal appeals court judge who was nominated to the Supreme Court in 1987 but not confirmed by the Senate. He has long been famous for his lack of sympathy for people who go to court with claims of race or sex discrimination, or other injustices. He...

    The Bush administration is urging Congress to pass a law that would halt dozens of lawsuits charging phone companies with invading ordinary citizens' privacy through a post-Sept. 11 warrantless surveillance program. The measure is part of a legislative package drafted by the Justice Department to relax provisions in the 1978 Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act (FISA) that restrict the administration's ability to intercept electronic communications in the United States. If passed, the proposed changes would forestall efforts to compel disclosure of the program's details through Congress or the court system. The proposal states that "no action shall lie . . ....

    I. Mr. Weinsteins Cyst When historians of the future try to identify the moment that neuroscience began to transform the American legal system, they may point to a little-noticed case from the early 1990s. The case involved Herbert Weinstein, a 65-year-old ad executive who was charged with strangling his wife, Barbara, to death and then, in an effort to make the murder look like a suicide, throwing her body out the window of their 12th-floor apartment on East 72nd Street in Manhattan. Before the trial began, Weinsteins lawyer suggested that his client should not be held responsible for his actions...
