    A potential juror in Blac Chyna's $108 million lawsuit against the Kardashians asked to be excused because he 'can't be neutral' as he has watched Kim's sex tape and 'would be replaying it in his head' during the proceedings.    Judge Gregory W. Alarcon brought in prospective jurors during jury selection on Monday. The highly-publicized upcoming LA trial stems from a 2017 lawsuit brought by reality star Blac Chyna, who accused the billionaire clan of deliberately plotting to have her hit E! TV show Rob and Chyna axed.  During the afternoon session, Judge Alarcon empaneled jurors and asked their names, marital status, and occupation before attorneys for both sides grilled jurors on whether they felt they could render a fair and impartial decision in the case.  'I have never watched the Kardashian show but I have watched the Kardashian sex tape and I don't think I could be neutral in this case,' a middle-aged man said, causing laughter to break out in the courtroom. After a break, the same prospective juror volunteered: 'I'm going to be playing that sex tape in my head...
    Elizabeth Holmes' ex-boyfriend Ramesh 'Sunny' Balwani went on trial Tuesday in California after two potential jurors were dismissed last week for watching episodes of Hulu's The Dropout.   The prosecution and defense raised clashing allegations that Balwani helped perpetrate massive fraud and that he believed in Therano's potential.  Challenges began even before the trial started. Last week, one juror was dismissed after he said he 'accidentally' saw the The Dropout.  The Hulu series, which centers around Holmes' meteoric rise and mortifying collapse and shines a bright light on Silicon Valley's dark side, paints Balwani - portrayed by Naveen Andrews - as an undeniably guilty manipulator.  Another juror was excused after she told US District Judge Edward Davila, who also presided over Holmes' trial, that she didn't think she could be unbiased after watching two episodes of the show.   Balwani, a tech executive who reaped a $40 million windfall during the dot-com boom of the late 1990s, faces a dozen counts of wire fraud and conspiracy to commit fraud for reportedly lying to patients and investors. Holmes was convicted in January of cheating...
    The fate of Guy Wesley Reffitt—a member of the extremist Texas Three Percenters militia and the first person to stand trial for crimes connected to the deadly assault on the U.S. Capitol—now rests in the hands of jurors. Prosecutors closed arguments Monday after presenting evidence against the 49-year-old for almost four days. For consideration, they offered jurors a trove of chilling text messages sent by Reffitt, video and eyewitness testimony he shot himself, and footage from law enforcement who tried desperately to repel him. Jurors also heard several hours of gut-wrenching testimony from Reffitt’s son, Jackson, who so feared his father’s potential for violence before Jan. 6 that he tipped off the FBI.  Reffitt was charged with five counts, including obstruction of an official proceeding, transporting firearms amid a civil disorder, being in a restricted area unlawfully while armed, interfering with law enforcement during a civil disorder, and obstructing justice. The last charge was the result of threats he issued to his children should they expose him to authorities, prosecutors allege.  If convicted on all counts, Reffitt could face decades behind bars. Two of the felony charges against him alone pose a...
    Potential jurors selected for the first trial surrounding the January 6 attacks on the US Capitol grew emotional in court Monday upon being questioned about the events of the day, raising concerns regarding their reliability to serve on the historic case. 'I felt like it was an attack on my home.. It was a very scary time,' one potential juror, with his voice shaking, told the DC court Monday, after being selected along with 33 others to potentially preside over the case of accused Capitol rioter Guy Reffitt, 48.  Noting how emotional the juror appeared in the courtroom, US District Court Judge Dabney Friedrich excused the candidate from service, saying he was 'starting from a place where he feels so clearly, visibly impacted from the events.' The prospective juror was one of nine dismissed by Friedrich Monday after displaying strong feelings about the Capitol attackers. Meanwhile, 24 others  - several of whom said they had followed news coverage of the riots and had strong political opinions regarding the case - made the cut, including a lobbyist who boasts connections to Congress. Reffitt's case is the first...
    (CNN)Jurors in the trial of Brett Hankison, the only police officer charged in connection with the botched 2020 raid that left Breonna Taylor dead, visited the 26-year-old Kentucky woman's apartment Friday afternoon. The group of 12 jurors and three alternates toured Taylor's apartment, the next-door neighbor's apartment where Hankison's bullets also entered, as well as the outside of the building at the apartment complex. The visit took place so jurors would be better able to understand the evidence presented to them in court, Judge Ann Bailey Smith told them before they left the courthouse. After the visit, jury was dismissed for the weekend, with testimony set to resume Tuesday morning. Hankison's charges are not related to Taylor's death, which sparked nationwide outrage and protests. The former Louisville, Kentucky, officer is facing charges because, during the narcotics raid on Taylor's apartment, he fired 10 shots -- allegedly blindly -- endangering a man, woman and child in the neighboring apartment, Kentucky Assistant Attorney General Barbara Whaley has said. No one was charged for Taylor's death. Read MoreAuthorities stand guard as jurors are...

    Jurors deliberating in Sarah Palin's libel case against The New York Times received breaking news alerts on their phones telling them that the judge had thrown out their case, it has emerged - strengthening Palin's lawyers' resolve to appeal. The five women and four men insisted that the news alerts did not sway their thinking. Yet Judge Jed Rakoff, who shocked the court on Monday by throwing out the case while the jury were deliberating, admitted that the legal teams may have questions about the events. 'If any party feels there is any relief they seek based on the above, counsel should promptly initiate a joint phone call with the Court to discuss whether any further proceedings are appropriate,' Rakoff wrote in a court filing on Wednesday. Sarah Palin is seen leaving court on Tuesday after the jury decided against her in her libel trial against The New York Times. It has now emerged that the jurors found out, while deliberating, that their case had been thrown out Judge Jed Rakoff is seen in court on Monday, as Palin looks...
    New York (CNN Business)Jurors have reached a verdict in Sarah Palin's defamation suit against the New York Times.The jury of nine have been deliberating since Friday afternoon. Unbeknownst to them, during deliberations, US District Judge Jed Rakoff ruled that Palin's attorneys did not prove actual malice, and that he would have set aside their verdict had they found the Times liable for defamation. US District Judge Jed Rakoff ruled on Monday, "The law here sets a very high standard (for actual malice). The court finds that that standard has not been met."Palin and her attorneys have previously indicated they would consider an appeal if the jury trial not go in their favor. This is a developing story. Check back for more...
    (CNN)Dozens of potential jurors will return to a Brunswick, Georgia, courthouse Monday to see if they'll be impaneled to hear the federal hate crimes trial against the men convicted of murdering Ahmaud Arbery.The judge, prosecutors and defense attorneys spent last week questioning potential jurors, exploring their views on race in hopes of seating an impartial jury for the trial, set to begin Monday. Some said they had made up their minds about the defendants' guilt, while others expressed doubt that racism was a problem in America today, or said it was exaggerated by the media. State prosecutors mostly avoided race in trying Ahmaud Arberys killers. Feds wont have that option as hate crimes trial begins today with jury selection"I don't think it is as bad as the media says it is," one juror said Wednesday when asked about his questionnaire, on which he indicated racism used to be a problem but no longer was. The juror had worked alongside Black people, he said, adding, "It was beat into my head that everyone was the same." The federal trial is distinct...
    New York (CNN Business)Jurors in Sarah Palin's defamation trial against the New York Times are done deliberating for the day.A jury of nine New Yorkers, made up of five women and four men, deliberated for about two hours starting Friday afternoon. They are expected to resume deliberations Monday at 9:30 a.m.The former Alaska Governor sued the Times and its former editorial page editor James Bennet in 2017 after they published an editorial that erroneously linked a map that Palin's political action committee had posted to the 2011 shooting that killed six and injured former Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords. The editorial in question is called "America's Lethal Politics" and was published on the day of the 2017 shooting at a baseball practice that injured Congressman Steve Scalise. It was meant to address heated political rhetoric ahead of the shooting, but it erroneously said that there was a "clear" link between a map that had crosshairs over congressional districts, including Giffords', and the shooting that injured her. Bennet testified that he added language about there being a clear link and that once he...
    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — Jury selection began this week for the trial of a former Kentucky police officer who took part in a botched raid that left Breonna Taylor dead. Brett Hankison is charged with three counts of wanton endangerment for allegedly firing wildly into the apartments of Taylor’s neighbors. Hankison is the only officer who took part in the raid to be charged. None of the officers involved were charged directly for their role in causing the Black woman’s death. Taylor, a 26-year-old Louisville emergency medical technician studying to become a nurse, was at home in her apartment when she was shot multiple times in March 2020. No drugs were found, and the warrant was later deemed to be flawed. Taylor’s death was among several cases that prompted nationwide demonstrations against police brutality and systemic racism that summer. Many protesters demanded that the officers involved in the raid be charged with murder, but the charges against Hankison were the only criminal indictments issued by a special grand jury convened by Kentucky Attorney General Cameron. Cameron, a...
    Michael Avenatti, the disgraced lawyer known for his representation of adult film star Stormy Daniels in lawsuits against then-President Donald Trump, is suing the Federal Bureau of Prisons (BOP), alleging that he was mistreated during his time in federal custody.  Avenatti is seeking $94 million, or $1 million for each day he says he spent in solitary confinement or lockdown while he was in custody in 2020.  According to a copy of the filing, he alleges that the federal government s liable for intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, false imprisonment and false arrest, and more, while he was in custody at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan.   Avenatti also alleges that when he asked for reading material, he was provided with only one book — Trump's The Art of the Deal. By the time of his release, he had been held in solitary confinement or under lockdown for 94 days, he said he was only allowed to see the sky once.

    Will this finally be judgment day for Ghislaine Maxwell? The jury in her federal sex trafficking case begins its fifth day of deliberations after failing to reach a verdict on Monday when it requested a transcript of the testimony of the ex-boyfriend of one of the victims and a definition of 'enticement,' one of the charges related to that victim. The jury has now deliberated for 24 hours and 40 minutes, or just over three working days. But like last week, this will be a short week for the proceedings. Because of the New Year holiday the jury will deliberate today and Wednesday and if they don't reach a verdict will take a break until Monday. On Monday, in a surprise move, Judge Alison Nathan urged the jurors to stay an hour later each day. Sessions will now end at 6pm instead of promptly at 5.  Maxwell's lawyer Laura Menninger had argued that giving the jury such an instruction was 'beginning to seem like urging them to hurry up.' Prosecutor Alison Moe said that it was 'within the court's discretion'...
    When Judge Regina Chu sent the jury out in the Kim Potter trial, she handed them fourteen pages of instructions. Now, as jurors enter their fourth day of deliberations and the specter of a mistrial looms, DailyMail.com has reviewed those instructions to break down the issues at the very heart of the case. Because after eight days of testimony, dozens of witnesses, and passionate opening and closing arguments, it all comes down to this.  And this is the law as jurors must apply it to the charges of manslaughter in the first degree and manslaughter in the Second. To convict Potter on the first-degree charge there are five elements that jurors must agree have been proven beyond reasonable doubt. The jury deciding Kim Potter's fate must reach a consensus on 1st and 2nd degree manslaughter charges, which carry a 15 and 10-year max sentence, respectively  Potter was charged after shooting 20-year-old black motorist Daunte Wright dead during a traffic stop in April. She claims she mistakenly grabbed her gun instead of her Taser after the situation turned 'chaotic.' Pictured: Bodycam...
    SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) — The jurors responsible for assessing 11 charges of fraud and conspiracy against former Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes are scheduled to begin their third day of deliberations on Thursday. If they haven’t reached a verdict by the end of the day, U.S. District Judge Edward Davila and the attorneys for both sides will discuss the possibility of taking a break until Jan. 3. The jury had originally signaled that it was willing to deliberate during the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day. On Tuesday after roughly 13 hours of deliberation, the jurors asked U.S. District Judge Edward Davila whether they could take home the 39-page document spelling out their legal instructions to study it more carefully. The request, submitted just ahead of a previously scheduled one-day break in their deliberations, was swiftly rejected on the grounds that all jury deliberations are supposed to happen inside an isolated room in the San Jose, California, courthouse where the trial was held. The jury is charged with deciding whether Holmes turned her blood-testing startup into a massive...
    SAN JOSE, Calif (AP) — Lawyers for opposing sides in the trial of former Theranos CEO Elizabeth Holmes are expected to wrap up closing arguments Friday, paving the way for a jury to begin deliberations over criminal charges accusing her of turning her blood-testing startup into a massive scam. The case revolving around Holmes’ meteoric rise to become a self-made billionaire and ensuing downfall has captivated Silicon Valley for the past three months as the long-delayed trial unfolded. That fixation intensified after Holmes made the risky decision to take the witness stand for seven days in front of the jurors who will determine her fate. The jurors, after attorneys wrap up closing arguments that began Thursday, will then be instructed by U.S. District Judge Edward Davila on how to proceed with deliberations. Holmes, 37, faces 11 felony counts of fraud and conspiracy. If convicted, she could receive a sentence of up to 20 years in federal prison less than a year after giving birth to her first child. Federal prosecutors have cast Holmes as a desperate con artist...
