    PHILADELPHIA, April 1, 2013 (Operation Rescue) - As the second week of testimony wrapped up in the Gosnell capital murder trial, emotions ran high as another argument broke out in court between Defense Attorney Jack McMahon and Medical Examiner Dr. Gary Collins over his decision to classify the overdose death of Karnamaya Mongar as a homicide. Gosnell has been charged with third degree murder in the death of Mongar, a 41-year old diminutive refugee from Bhutan, who died on November 19, 2009, from an overdose of Demerol during a 19-week abortion at Gosnell’s West Philadelphia “House of Horrors” abortion clinic....

    The defense in the Zimmerman case has been fighting a so-far-losing battle to depose Martin family lawyer Ben Crump. He's the guy who produced "witness number 8", and provided a recording of an interview with her that had several missing portions. ABC news was also present at the interview, and has now released this recording that captures Crump's interaction with the witness. http://www.gzdocs.com/documents/0313/mfr_exhibits/exhibit_g.mp4

    Adrienne Moton wept this week as she recounted her role in the mass murder of at least 10 pre-born babies. The West Philadelphia medical assistant testified during the capital murder trial of Dr. Kermit Gosnell, owner of an abortion clinic in the supposed “City of Brotherly Love.” Moton told a jury that she snipped the spines of at least 10 babies, a heinous procedure even by abortion standards. She said she was ordered to do so by Gosnell, the abortion-rights equivalent of Josef Mengele. She also recalled taking a cell phone snapshot of one of the baby murder victims left...

    New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg (I) dismissed lawmakers’ criticisms over trying a former al Qaeda spokesman in New York City as partisan politics and said he’s confident that the trial won’t present a security risk. “I suspect a lot of the controversy will be partisan controversy, part of the political games that are played in Washington,” Bloomberg told CBS. Bloomberg did not second-guess the Obama administration’s decision to try former al Qaeda spokesman Sulaiman Abu Ghaith in federal court rather than taking him to Guantanamo Bay and trying him before a military tribunal. The decision has drawn attacks from...

    Andrew McCarthy has an excellent article today entitled "While You Weren’t Looking, Obama Kills Military Commissions" which details how, once again, Obama is bypassing laws and doing things his way: In the blink of an eye, the second Obama term has turned the clock back to the pre-9/11 days, when al-Qaeda was a law-enforcement problem, not a national-security challenge. ... the administration has never forfeited its goal of returning to the Clinton-era counterterrorism, when all terrorists were deemed defendants presumed innocent, not enemies to be quelled. Now, with the help of President Obama’s Islamist confidant, Turkish prime minister Recep Tayyip...

    A confidential Justice Department memo concludes that the U.S. government can order the killing of American citizens if they are believed to be “senior operational leaders” of al-Qaida or “an associated force” -- even if there is no intelligence indicating they are engaged in an active plot to attack the U.S. The 16-page memo, a copy of which was obtained by NBC News, provides new details about the legal reasoning behind one of the Obama administration’s most secretive and controversial polices: its dramatically increased use of drone strikes against al-Qaida suspects, including those aimed at American citizens, such as the...

    Freeport, Ill. — Attorneys for those arrested during a Sensata plant protest and the City of Freeport spoke via conference call with Judge Jack Joyce on Wednesday to begin ironing out details for an upcoming trial date. “We’re looking at trial dates,” said City Attorney John Mitchell. “The conference that we held with the opposing counsel was to discuss three or four dates that are open over the next few months.” Lawyers are working towards a trial because the 11 protesters facing criminal trespassing charges lobbied for a trial by jury rather than agreeing to pay any fines during their...

Committee staff is gearing up for hearings on the subject, citing recent concerns from the AAA motor club, automakers and the oil industry that the rule is pushing a high-ethanol fuel blend onto the market they say will damage cars. “If Congress observes the data, I think they will conclude we are putting the consumer at risk currently,”...

    A trial that has become a symbol, in Wisconsin and across the U.S., of government criminalization of farmers for providing food directly to consumers has been rescheduled for January. But the delay from the previously scheduled September court date is expected to focus even more attention on the dispute that has dragged Wisconsin dairy farmer Vernon Hershberger to the court’s defendant’s table in the Sauk County Circuit Court, presided over by Judge Guy Reynolds. The state’s case against the Loganville farmer has him accused of four misdemeanor counts of violating Wisconsin’s food and dairy code. Officials with the Farm to...

    Second-degree murder suspect George Zimmerman gets a new judge. The Fifth District Court of Appeal in Daytona Beach on Wednesday ruled that Circuit Judge Kenneth Lester Jr. in Sanford went too far when, among other things, he described Zimmerman as a manipulator. It was "admittedly a close call," wrote Judge C. Alan Lawson, but Lester's actions, taken in total, would cause a reasonable person to fear that he is biased. The next step is for Circuit Judge Alan Dickey in Sanford to pick a new judge. It's expected to be Circuit Judge Debra S. Nelson, 58, another felony trial judge...

    George Zimmerman Is Getting A New Judge After He Alleges Flagrant Bias Abby Rogers Aug. 29, 2012, 5:24 PM They said it was a "close call," but three judges for Florida's Fifth District Court of Appeals ruled George Zimmerman deserves a new judge. Zimmerman's lawyer requested a new judge last month, saying Judge Kenneth Lester is blatantly biased against his client. Lester has steadfastly refused to step down, claiming attorney Mark O'Mara's request was "legally insufficient." But now, it looks like Lester doesn't get a choice. The Fifth Circuit ruled Lester should "enter an order of disqualification which requests the...

    MIAMI — Lawyers for accused Sept. 11 attacks mastermind Khalid Sheik Mohammed and his four co-defendants are seeking to postpone their Aug. 8-12 hearing at Guantanamo, noting it falls toward the end of the Muslim holy month of Ramadan. The trial judge, Army Col. James Pohl, set the date for the hearing in May and specifically ruled out an extension on grounds that it coincided with Islam’s fasting month. He noted in his order then that no defense lawyer at that point had raised objection to a hearing that coincided with Ramadan. But the attorneys do just that in a...

    WASHINGTON—Military prosecutors won't say whether they plan to use newly disclosed tape recordings in the upcoming trial of 9/11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed even though the tapes could solve the prosecution's problems with tainted evidence. A new book says Justice Department prosecutors were stunned to learn three years ago that the U.S. military had secretly tape-recorded incriminating comments that Mohammed made to fellow detainees during daily prison yard conversations but was not planning to use them at military tribunals. In "Kill or Capture: The War on Terror and the Soul of the Obama Presidency," journalist Daniel Klaidman says Mohammed was...

After a week of deliberations, the four alternate jurors have become the prime distraction for the assembled press corps and spectators in the courtroom. On Thursday the alternates – three women and one man – caused something of a stir when they showed up in matching bright yellow shirts, hardly bothering to suppress their snickering as the judge addressed the main panel of jurors. Today they are all wearing red. For nearly four weeks, 16 jurors heard all the evidence in Edwards’ case....
