    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Anyone who protests in front of a private residence in Florida can face jail time and fines under a bill Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis signed Monday.The legislation makes it a second-degree misdemeanor to protest in a manner that is aimed at intentionally harassing or disturbing someone in their home. Violators face 60 days in jail and fines of up to $500.RELATED | DeSantis signs bill dissolving Disney's private government over 'Don't Say Gay' criticismProtesters can only be arrested after ignoring law enforcement's orders to disperse, however.The governor said the new law will prevent protests in Florida like those waged by abortion rights protesters in front of U.S. Supreme Court justices' homes in Virginia."Sending unruly mobs to private residences, like we have seen with the angry crowds in front of the homes of Supreme Court justices, is inappropriate," DeSantis said in an email to news agencies. "This bill will provide protection to those living in residential communities and I am glad to sign it into law."SEE ALSO | Chicagoans march for abortion rights amid US Supreme Court leakSome...
    MUCH has been written about how the only winners in the Wagatha Christie saga are the lawyers. But no. Trundling up on the rails is one Wayne Rooney. 6Wayne Rooney, after 19 years of patchy form, is finally stepping up to the front 6Wayne has been glued to Coleen’s side at her trial A man who, after 19 years of patchy form, is finally stepping, nay galloping, up to the front. While Rebekah Vardy’s husband, Jamie, is conspicuous by his absence, day after day former racehorse owner Wayne has been glued to Coleen’s side. To paraphrase Martine McCutcheon, this is his perfect moment. Dutifully lugging in his wife’s wheelbarrow-sized Fendi bags — she has been sporting a collection of decidedly more delicate Chanel ones — Wayne has been little short of stoical at London’s High Court.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the current Supreme Court was “dangerous” for families and freedom in America. When asked about Roe v Wade potentially being overturned by the Supreme Court, Pelosi said, “Who would have ever suspected that a creature like Donald Trump would become president of the United States by waving a list of judges he would appoint, therefore, getting the support of the far-right — and appointing those anti-freedom justices to the court. So, this is not about long game. We played a long game. We won Roe v. Wade a long time ago. We voted to protect it over time.” She continued, “Let’s not take our eye off the ball. The ball is this court, which is dangerous to the freedoms of our country. Beware in terms of marriage equality, beware in terms of other aspects of it, and so it is. Let’s not waste our time on that. The fact is, this is a dangerous court to families, to freedom in our country. And that is why people...
    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union” that no one would think a “creature” like former Precedent Donald Trump would be elected president. When asked about Roe v Wade potentially being overturned by the Supreme Court, Pelosi said, “Who would have ever suspected that a creature like Donald Trump would become president of the United States by waving a list of judges he would appoint, therefore, getting the support of the far right—and appointing those anti-freedom justices to the court. So, this is not about long game. We played a long game. We won Roe v. Wade a long time ago. We voted to protect it over time.” She added, “We have elected a Democratic House of Representatives that is pro-choice. Again, you have a 60 vote thing in the Senate and lack of clarity on part of some of the Republicans who say their pro-choice and then vote against a woman’s right to choose. Let’s not take our eye off the ball. The ball is this court, which is dangerous to the freedoms...
    BAGHDAD (AP) — A British and a German tourist, accused of smuggling ancient shards out of Iraq, appeared in a Baghdad court in yellow detainees’ uniforms Sunday, telling judges they had not acted with criminal intent and had no idea they might have broken local laws. The trial of Jim Fitton, 66, is grabbing international attention at a time when Iraq seeks to open up its nascent tourism sector. The session also revealed first details about a second defendant, identified as Volker Waldmann of Germany. The three-judge panel in Baghdad’s felony court scheduled the next hearing for May 22. The court must determine whether the defendants had sought to profit by taking the 12 items, which were found in their possession as they attempted to fly out of Baghdad airport on March 20. Fitton and Waldmann appeared in court in detainees’ yellow and were asked to explain their actions. Waldmann said the two items found in his possession were not his and instead had been given to him by Fitton to carry. “But did you put them in your bag?”...

    AN ex-nurse has avoided jail time after killing a 75-year-old patient by giving her the wrong drugs. RaDonda Vaught broke down in tears on Friday as she addressed the patient's family in court. 3RaDonda Vaught is seen in court apologizing to Charlene Murphey's familyCredit: AP 3During her apology, Vaught broke down in tearsCredit: AP Vaught was sentenced to three years probation after a lengthy court battle in Nashville, Tennessee. In March, she was found guilty of criminally negligent homicide and abuse of an impaired adult after accidently giving her 75-year-old patient, Charlene Murphey, the wrong medicine in 2017, according to USA Today. "Saying I'm sorry doesn’t seem like enough, but you deserve to hear that and know that I am very sorry for what happened," Vaught told the Murphey family in court. If Vaught completes the terms of her probation, the charges will be wiped from her record in the future.

    BOSTON (AP) — An accountant who worked for the consultant at the center of the college admissions bribery case has avoided prison for his role in the sweeping scheme. U.S. District Court Judge Indira Talwani on Friday sentenced Steven Masera, 72, to time already served. Masera pleaded guilty in 2019 to a charge of racketeering conspiracy in Boston federal court. Masera, of Folsom, California, was an accountant for Rick Singer, the mastermind of the bribery scheme that involved rigged test scores and bogus athletic credentials. Prosecutors say Masera created fake donation receipt letters and bogus invoices that allowed the wealthy parents who paid bribes to write their payments off as donations or business expenses. Prosecutors argued that Masera is less culpable than the parents and coaches involved in the scheme, noting that he was working at Singer’s direction and “stood to gain nothing beyond his hourly compensation.” An email seeking comment was sent Friday to lawyers for Masera. His attorneys wrote in court documents that he is “ashamed that he would agree to be involved in such...
    Legal experts and Supreme Court watchers have suggested over the past week the draft opinion striking down Roe v. Wade that was leaked and published by Politico last week would be smoothed down, the harshness massaged, and the tone changed to make the document more palatable. That does not seem to be the intention of its author, Justice Samuel Alito, who has been disparaged and even mocked for basing his argument on a “17th-century jurist who supported marital rape and had women executed,” as Vanity Fair reported. In a follow-up report Tuesday, Politico reveals the leaked opinion is dated February because there has not been another version circulated among the justices. The 98-page draft opinion, read by many across the country appears, at least right now, to be the actual majority opinion the Court will hand down in the coming weeks. Politico reports that “there’s no sign that the court is changing course from issuing that ruling by the end of June,” and “none of the conservative justices who initially sided with Alito have to date switched their votes. No...
    (CNN)The Supreme Court is set to meet behind closed doors on Thursday for the first time since the astonishing leak of a draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade. The justices plan to discuss pending petitions and outstanding cases -- but they're also likely to grapple with the aftermath of that remarkable breach of the court's confidential operations. While the draft opinion calling for the reversal of a near-50-year-old landmark precedent stunned the country, the leak itself stunned the court. Chief Justice John Roberts quickly ordered the marshal of the court -- Col. Gail A. Curley -- to begin an internal investigation, but sources familiar with how the court operates say the inquiry could lead to uncomfortable privacy issues, trigger further tension and erode trust as the justices work furiously to resolve cases concerning some of the most important social issues of the day regarding abortion, gun rights, religious liberty and the environment. Curley serves as the court's chief security officer and manages the Supreme Court Police Force. "Everything depends," one source familiar with the court's inner workings said,...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — The Supreme Court’s nine justices will gather in private Thursday for their first scheduled meeting since the leak of a draft opinion that would overrule Roe v. Wade and sharply curtail abortion rights in roughly half the states. The meeting in the justices’ private, wood-paneled conference room could be a tense affair in a setting noted for its decorum. No one aside from the justices attends and the most junior among them, Justice Amy Coney Barrett, is responsible for taking notes. Thursday’s conference comes at an especially fraught moment, with the future of abortion rights at stake and an investigation underway to try to find the source of the leak. Chief Justice John Roberts last week confirmed the authenticity of the opinion, revealed by Politico, in ordering the court’s marshal to undertake an investigation. Roberts stressed that the draft, written by Justice Samuel Alito and circulated in February, may not be the court’s final word. Supreme Court decisions are not final until they are formally issued and the outcomes in some cases changed between the justices’ initial...
    FAIRFIELD, Iowa (AP) — A 17-year-old Iowa boy accused of helping a classmate kill their high school Spanish teacher last year will be tried as an adult after a judge on Wednesday denied his request to move his case to juvenile court. District Judge Shawn Showers ruled that Jeremy Goodale will face a first-degree murder trial in adult court for the beating death of 66-year-old Nohema Graber, who taught at Fairfield High School. In his ruling, Showers cited the juvenile court’s limited time to rehabilitate Goodale if the teen is found guilty, noting the longest Goodale could be held in the juvenile system is six months past his 19th birthday. “The juvenile court’s dwindling time to rehabilitate the defendant is simply insufficient for a crime of such magnitude based on the nature of the offenses described in the minutes of testimony,” Showers wrote. Police arrested Goodale and another teen, Willard Miller, in Graber’s killing. Graber’s body was found Nov. 3 hidden under a tarp, a wheelbarrow and railroad ties at a Fairfield city park, and police said she had...
    The nine justices of the Supreme Court are scheduled to meet on Thursday - the first time they will gather in person since a draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked. As the justices gather for their private, closed-door conference, there is no sign the court is changing course from issuing that ruling - written by Justice Samuel Alito - despite heavy public pressure. Protests have sprung up around the country, including at the homes of the justices. One abortion rights group is planning protests outside the homes of all six Republican-appointed justices - Justices John Roberts, Clarence Thomas, Neil Gorsuch, Brett Kavanaugh, Amy Coney Barrett, and Alito – in what the group is calling 'Walk-by Wednesday.'  Still, Alito's opinion, which overturns the landmark case that made abortion legal in the country, remains the only circulated draft pending, Politico reported.  The nine justices of the Supreme Court are scheduled to meet on Thursday - the first time they will gather in person since a draft opinion that would overturn Roe v. Wade was leaked Pro-abortion rights advocates stage a...
    NEW YORK (AP) — Minor league players and Major League Baseball have reached a settlement in a lawsuit alleging teams violated minimum wage laws. Terms of the settlement were not filed with the court Tuesday and details were not released. “We are pleased to report that the parties have reached a settlement in principle in this over eight-year-old case, subject to court approval,” lawyers for the players said in a statement. “We look forward to filing preliminary approval papers with the court and cannot comment further until then.” The suit was filed in 2014 by first baseman/outfielder Aaron Senne, a 10th-round pick of the Marlins in 2009 who retired in 2013, and two other retired players who had been lower-round selections: Kansas City infielder Michael Liberto and San Francisco pitcher Oliver Odle. They claimed violations of the federal Fair Labor Standards Act and state minimum wage and overtime requirements for a work week they estimated at 50 to 60 hours. A trial had been scheduled to start June 1 in U.S. District Court in San Francisco. A letter...
    NEW JERSEY -- A split New Jersey Supreme Court granted parole Tuesday to a former militant convicted in the 1973 death of a New Jersey state trooper, in a case that has resonated for decades and been a thorny issue in U.S.-Cuba relations.Sundiata Acoli is in his mid-80s and had had several parole bids rejected previously. His attorneys argued he has been a model prisoner for nearly three decades and has counseled other inmates.The state parole board had contended Acoli still is a risk to commit future crimes and hasn't taken full responsibility for Trooper Werner Foerster's death.Acoli's more-famous co-defendant, Joanne Chesimard, also was convicted and sentenced to a life term but escaped from a New Jersey prison in 1979. Now known as Assata Shakur, she was given asylum in Cuba by then-President Fidel Castro and remains a fugitive.In Tuesday's 3-2 ruling with Chief Justice Stuart Rabner not participating, the court held that the state parole board didn't meet its required burden of demonstrating there was a substantial likelihood of Acoli committing another crime."No member of the Court disputes that...
    A well-connected South Carolina teen who received a jaw-droppingly lenient sentence of probation after pleading guilty to rape has been arrested again, reportedly telling a deputy while being booked that he would “bite [his] fucking finger off” if he forced him to wear a mask in compliance with COVID protocols. Bowen Turner, 19, was taken into custody Sunday by the Orangeburg County Sheriff’s Office, according to court records. He was charged with one count of public disorderly conduct, a misdemeanor. The incident, which was first reported by FitsNews, a South Carolina-focused outlet founded by the former press secretary to Gov. Mark Sanford, involved Turner’s alleged overconsumption of alcohol at an area bar. This, according to attorney Sarah Ford, who represents the families of two of Turner’s alleged victims, not only contravenes laws against underage drinking but almost certainly constitutes a serious violation of Turner’s admittedly light punishment. “I expect that if they have not yet served a probation warrant, that they will be doing that very shortly,” Ford told The Daily Beast. “It’s mind-boggling, it really is. Should anybody be...
    Tennis pro Naomi Osaka said she is having a 'blast' on the court 'for the first time in a while,' a year after she withdrew from the French Open due to mental health issues. Osaka, 24, made headlines when she announced that she was not going to do any press leading up to the French Open in May 2021, saying that reporters often 'have no regard for athletes' mental health.' Her decision became a hot-button issue with some backlash, and days later, the pro athlete announced that she would no longer be participating in the sports event so that she would stop 'being a distraction' and so that 'everyone could get back to focusing on the tennis.' A year later, Osaka appears to have put the incident behind her — and tells Self she is enjoying herself much more these days.  'I really had a blast on court for the first time in a while,' she said following the Miami Open. 'I have a new perspective and I’m so appreciative that I have this career and platform. I’m also really...
    The people who run America’s abortion clinics agree: There’s no job like it. There are the clients — so many of them desperate, in need, grateful. There are the abortion opponents — passionate, relentless, often furious. And hovering over it all are legal challenges, and the awareness that your clinic may be just a judicial ruling away from extinction. That reality became more urgent last week with a leaked, draft opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court suggesting a majority of justices support overturning the 1973 Roe vs Wade decision legalizing abortion. If that happens it could spell the end of abortion in about half the states. The Associated Press talked with three women and one man who run abortion clinics in such states about their work. Some came to the work through personal brushes with abortion; for others it started as a job. For all, it has become a calling. ___ SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA — When Kathaleen Pittman was growing up in a small, conservative community in rural Louisiana, abortion was not openly discussed. When she started working at the...
    It’s only been a week since the explosive leak of a draft Supreme Court decision presaging the end of 50 years of legal abortion in America. But the GOP is wasting no time building its bleak, authoritarian successor state. Having seemingly won their signal victory on abortion, Republicans do not have time for messy things like participatory democracy, only the raw exercise of power. What Republicans are planning goes far beyond ending legal abortion as defined in the landmark case Roe v. Wade—and past what even many self-identified Republican voters want. In court challenges and proposed legislation from Idaho to Florida to Congress, the GOP has expanded its war on reproductive freedom to include their worst theocratic fever dreams. Criminalization of miscarriages. Bans on condoms, IUDs, and other forms of birth control. Stripping pre-existing abortion protections from state constitutions. These laws and bills represent not only the biggest backwards step in reproductive freedom in American history, they finally showcase the GOP’s twisted, totalitarian worldview for the entire world to see. After days of dodging any comment on the substance...
