    A federal judge has blocked a new Alabama law that would make it a felony for doctors to give transgender children puberty blockers and hormone treatments. US District Judge Liles Burke issued the preliminary injunction on Friday, blocking parts of the state's Vulnerable Child Compassion and Protection Act, which went into effect just last week.  It makes it a felony for doctors to provide puberty blockers, hormone treatments or transition surgery to anyone under the age of 19. Any doctors who are found to have violated the law could face 10 years in prison. But Burke ruled on Friday that the law may be unconstitutional, and intrudes upon a family's right to make their own medical decisions. 'Enjoining the Act upholds and reaffirms the "enduring American tradition" that parents - not the states or federal courts - play the primary role in nurturing and caring for their children,' he wrote in his decision, according to FOX News. Still, Alabama State Attorney General Steve Marshall indicated he would appeal the ruling, and Ivey said in a statement this decision is just...
    A Texas judge who regularly oversees drink driving cases was arrested for drink driving after trying to reverse his car into a parking spot that already had a car in it, according to the Travis County Sheriff's Office. Travis County Judge John Lipscombe was arrested for DWI in the lobby of the Homewood Suites by Hilton in North Austin a little after midnight on Saturday May 7, telling deputies that he had only had 'a couple of drinks at his house but not even to get messy'. Deputies were called to the parking lot of the hotel after a verbal argument had broken out between Lipscombe and a witness who had intervened to stop him backing in to the parked car in the spot he was trying to take. After the dispute Lipscombe, who has been a presiding judge in the county for over ten years, drove around the parking lot and parked in a disabled space right next to the hotel entrance.  Arresting officers found the judge sitting in the hotel lobby 'appearing slow to answer questions and was overall...
    It’s hard to remember the Chicago Cubs were 11 games over .500 in mid-June 2021, looking like a team on a mission to avoid a fire sale. But that’s exactly what happened, of course, and after team President Jed Hoyer’s summer sell-off led to a 91-loss season, the new-look Cubs started this season with several fresh faces and lowered expectations. Whether it was a rebuild, a re-do or a retro version of a mid-1990s Cubs team, there was no pressure to get off to a great start. And without any expectations, there was no angst Friday over a mediocre 8-11 record heading into a three-game series against the Brewers in Milwaukee. The preferred focus was on the team’s improved hitting. The Cubs entered Friday leading the majors with a .260 average and a .344 on-base percentage, while ranking second to the Los Angeles Angels with a .746 OPS in spite a lineup without anyone named Mike Trout, Shohei Ohtani or Anthony Rendon. That begs the question of whether it’s just a small sample size — the equivalent of a Yermín...
    Joe Biden has been blocked from winding down the Trump-era Title 42 migrant expulsion policy by a federal judge over fears it is already being ignored and causing a border-crossing surge.  US District Judge Robert Summerhays of Lafayette in Louisiana, made the ruling on Wednesday.  It bars the Biden administration from beginning to wind-down Title 42 ahead of its planned May 23 conclusion, but doesn't stop the policy being axed on that date.  Summerhays - a Trump appointee - is now set to hold a second hearing that could stop Biden from halting the policy too.  'The states have established a substantial threat of immediate and irreparable injury resulting from the early implementation of Title 42, including unrecoverable costs on healthcare, law enforcement, detention, education, and other services for migrants,' he wrote.  'The states have established a substantial threat of immediate and irreparable injury resulting from the early implementation of Title 42, including unrecoverable costs on healthcare, law enforcement, detention, education, and other services for migrants,' wrote Trump-appointed U.S. District Judge Robert Summerhays in Lafayette, Louisiana Summerhays said states were...
    "So for a court to come in and interfere in that is really unfortunate," he added. "It's unfortunate because it's against public health principles, number one, and number two, is because that's no place for the courts to do that, this is a CDC decision and that's very bad precedent when you have courts making a decision. And looking at what the basis of the decision was, it was not sound." Liberals have criticized the judge who issued the order to end the mandate because she was appointed by former President Donald Trump. Others say that the premature end of the mandate is putting the public at risk, but polling shows that the end of the mandate is very popular.

    Hillary Clinton on Wednesday is asking that a legal challenge filed against her by Donald Trump be dismissed on the grounds that it has 'no merit.' The former first lady's court filing compared Trump's lawsuit to a 'fundraising tool, a press release or a list of political grievances' but said it has no place 'as a lawsuit, and should be dismissed with prejudice.' The ex-president sued his 2016 Democratic opponent and dozens of others in March for an 'unthinkable plot' to 'weave a false narrative' that he was colluding with a hostile foreign power during that election cycle to 'cripple Trump's bid for presidency.' Clinton 'vigorously denies' Trump's accusations, but even if they were true, argued that he 'fails to plead any cognizable legal causes of action,' the filing obtained by Axios states. Her attorneys also claimed that some of the Republican's accusations -- including conspiring with the FBI and Christopher Steele on the British ex-spy's infamous dossier -- would run out of the statute of limitations even if Trump had a case. They cite proof his allegations were made...
    Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson speaks during her Senate Judiciary Committee confirmation hearing on March 22 on Capitol Hill. In the days leading up to the historic confirmation vote making Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson the first Black woman to sit on the U.S. Supreme Court, there has been so much GOP criticism of the accomplished judge that a casual news observer might be persuaded to question her qualifications. The resounding response to that inclination from many Black women, both in the legal profession and watching from outside of courtroom doors, has been: Don’t. Not with Judge Jackson. Because despite Republican sentiment, this moment is not about them or their beliefs about critical race theory. This moment is about Black women, and one phenomenal one in particular. Opinion writer Kimberly Atkins Stohr tweeted in response to a Washington Post analysis highlighting Sen. Mitt Romney's historic flip from voting against Jackson’s nomination to an appeals court last year to announcing his intent to support her confirmation on Monday. “Here’s the problem with framing Romney’s vote as ‘historic’ or whatnot: (1) Romney has made a career of being a...
    New York City Mayor Eric Adams is going back on his promise to lift his mask mandate for children under the age of five because of an uptick in Covid-19 cases, despite a recent ruling by a Staten Island judge that it can't be enforced.  It's a complete reversal from just 10 days ago, when Adams promised he would unmask the city's toddlers on April 4. Adams and new New York City Health Commissioner Ashwin Vasan made the announcement at a press briefing Friday, where they said the rising levels of the virus would make it irresponsible to go forward with the plan. 'That's why we are recommending to wait a little bit longer to make masks optional for this age group,' Vasan said. Adams and Vasan would not give a new date for the city to consider lifting the mandate.  Staten Island Supreme Court judge Ralph Porzio ruled Friday that the mask mandate was unenforceable because it's 'arbitrary, capricious and unreasonable.'  Adams said that his administration will file an appeal, leaving parents and children in the balance over what...
    Ketanji Brown Jackson said she has not studied critical race theory but does not believe it is taught in schools, during a rapid-fire round of questioning from Sen. Ted Cruz, who pointed out that books like 'Antiracist Baby' are taught in the school where the judge sits on the board.  Cruz, R-Texas, brought out a set of props to hound the Supreme Court nominee on the hot-button culture war matter.  Asked by Cruz to define the concept, Jackson underscored that critical race theory (CRT) was an 'academic theory' that she had never used in the courtroom.  'Critical race theory, is it is an academic theory that is about the ways in which race interacts with various institutions. It doesn't come up in my work as a judge. It's never something that I've studied or relied on, and it wouldn't be something that I would rely on if I was on the Supreme Court.'   Cruz then quoted a speech where Jackson said her work as a judge was 'just plain interesting because it melds together myriad types of law, criminal law...
    Breyer, 83, was reported to be retiring from the high court on Wednesday before a formal announcement was made President Joe Biden is appearing alongside Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer to deliver remarks on the high court judge's retirement, the White House announced on Thursday.  It was reported just yesterday that the 83-year-old liberal is retiring from the court.  The White House confirmed those reports when it revealed shortly after 11 a.m. today that Biden will deliver a speech on Breyer's departure at 12:30 p.m. It's not clear if Breyer himself will speak.  It would be a badly needed victory for Biden if he manages to get a new left-leaning justice confirmed with a razor thin 50-50 split in the Senate. The president is already reportedly considering multiple potential replacements, all of whom fit his campaign promise to appoint a black woman to the high court. Breyer is one of three liberals on the Supreme Court, alongside Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. Former President Donald Trump was able to fill three empty slots during his four-year term, giving the...
    Prince Andrew could settle out of court with his US sex-case accuser if a judge rules that the case should go to trial. Insiders say the option ‘remains on the table’ if, as expected, Judge Lewis Kaplan rejects his legal team’s motion this week to have Virginia Roberts’ lawsuit dismissed at an early stage. Andrew’s team are understood to acknowledge the ‘attritional impact’ the case is having on the Royal Family, particularly as the Queen, 95, is due to celebrate her Platinum Jubilee this June with the threat of a scandalous sex trial involving her son hanging over her. ‘Obviously, this is a US case involving US lawyers and involving a US civil lawsuit,’ one source said. ‘In reality, 99 per cent of US civil litigations are settled out of court. A settlement would always be an option on the table, as that’s where the vast majority end up. There is also the wider pressure and attritional impact to consider.’ Sources with knowledge of the case stressed last night to the Daily Mail that no discussions have taken place yet...
    Tamra Judge is speaking out about how her former "Real Housewives of Orange County" co-star Meghan King is coping with her breakup. On Monday, the reality TV star confirmed her split from Joe Biden’s nephew, Cuffe Biden Owens, after two months of marriage. On Tuesday’s episode of her "Two T’s In A Pod" podcast, Judge told co-host Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave and guest Brandi Glanville that King is "devastated." "I did reach out to her and I’m not going to disclose what she said, but she’s devastated," the 54-year-old explained. "They met on an app. Dated a few weeks, had the whirlwind romance and then, decided to get married. From what I understand, he’s in LA and she’s in St. Louis. So that’s going to be challenging in itself." MEGHAN KING ASKED FOR ‘GOOD MARRIAGE TIPS’ WEEKS BEFORE SPLIT FROM BIDEN'S NEPHEW CUFFE BIDEN OWENS Meghan King (L) and Tamra Judge.

    Prince Andrew's lawyers have asked a judge to throw out a sex abuse complaint from Virginia Giuffre, claiming that it is 'unconstitutional under New York law'. Giuffre, aged 38 and 17 at the time of the alleged abuse, claims she was forced to have sex with Andrew, 61, on three occasions in 2001, when he was aged 30. Lawyers for the Duke, who has consistently and vehemently denied her claims, have now contended the law which the case was filed under - the New York's Child Victims Act - is unconstitutional. They are scheduled to argue for a dismissal of the lawsuit at a hearing before Judge Kaplan in Manhattan on January 4, 2022. It comes shortly after the Duke was seen sharing a joke and laughing while on a horse ride with two friends in the grounds of Windsor Castle yesterday.  Prince Andrew shared a joke and laughed on his latest pony ride in Windsor yesterday while his lawyers prepare for a dismissal of the lawsuit at a hearing in Manhattan on January 4, 2022 The Duke of York was pictured breaking...
    Kyle Rittenhouse's mother on Thursday night accused Joe Biden of painting her son as a white supremacist a year ago in a cynical bid to win the presidential election, but said she was confident that the judge in the case had ensured a fair trial. Wendy Rittenhouse spoke hours after the defense rested its case in the high-profile trial. Her 18-year-old son is charged with murdering two people and wounding a third during the rioting in Kenosha, Wisconsin, following the shooting of Jacob Blake by police.  His lawyers insist Rittenhouse was acting in self defense, and on Monday both sides will sum up their arguments before the jury retires for deliberations. Wendy, a mother of three, told Fox News' Sean Hannity that she was still angry with Biden for his labeling her son a white supremacist last year. Wendy Rittenhouse on Thursday night was asked about Joe Biden's 2020 tweet labelling her son a white supremacist Fox News Privacy Policy Biden shared a video clip on Twitter denouncing white supremacists that including a photo of Rittenhouse wielding a gun ...
    During a CNN discussion Thursday of Kyle Rittenhouse’s headline-grabbing murder trial, former prosecutor Bob Bianchi argued that “if there is a conviction here, I am certain it will be reversed.” As the trial dominated cable news yesterday, pundits and legal analysts combed through the various arguments, testimonies, and heated exchanges in the courtroom with many focusing on the prosecution’s stumbles, tensions with the judge, and what Bianchi sees as a potentially fatal due process violation. “You may be seeing the prosecutor, his desperate attempts yesterday, by the way, doing stuff with the 5th Amendment that’s mind-blowing cause for reversal of this case if there is even a conviction,” said Bianchi on CNN’s Newsroom. Bianchi then referred to a bombastic exchange during the trial Wednesday in which Judge Bruce Schroeder reprimanded the prosecutor, Assistant District Attorney Thomas Binger, for what he called a “grave constitutional violation.” Schroeder took issue with what he saw as Binger insinuating that Rittenhouse’s silence after being arrested implied guilt — despite “the right to remain silent” being a constitutionally protected part of due process. Bianchi explained...
    On Friday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Rep. Chip Roy (R-TX) stated that the Biden administration isn’t actually going to reinstitute the Migrant Protection Protocols, commonly known as Remain in Mexico, “They’re actually just trying to slow-walk it until they can find a way to kill it.” Roy said, “[A] federal judge…said that the federal government needed to do its job and follow the law and actually continue to follow the Migrant Protection Protocols. The administration is actually working actively to undermine that. At the current moment, they’re actually trying to rescind the program by following the procedures the judge cited that they failed to follow to start with. Meanwhile, they’re going to put out news saying, well, we’re doing what the judge said. So, we’re going to do the Migrant Protection Protocol. But they’re really not. They’re actually just trying to slow-walk it until they can find a way to kill it.” Follow Ian Hanchett on Twitter @IanHanchett
    In the fight to strip their constituents of their right to protest, Republican governors in states throughout the country have been pushing legislation to criminalize protesting. Well, a federal judge said I don't think so on Thursday to Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, who signed what he dubbed “the strongest anti-rioting, pro-law-enforcement piece of legislation in the country” on April 19. He and other GOP politicians have been particularly vocal about such legislation since the murder of George Floyd and the widespread protests for justice the Black father’s death inspired. U.S. District Judge Mark Walker wrote in a ruling obtained by  The Washington Post that the governor’s “new definition of ‘riot’” lacks specificity and criminalizes “vast swaths of core First Amendment speech.”  Responding to a lawsuit from social change organizations Dream Defenders and the American Civil Liberties Union, Walker said DeSantis' law changed the “common law definition of riot.” “Tossing Molotov cocktails at the police station with 10 of your best friends is clearly rioting,” Walker wrote, but the GOP governor’s law isn’t that detailed. The law banned “willfully participating in a violent public disturbance” but fails to...
    The NFL recently announced 93 percent of the league’s players are vaccinated against Covid-19. Superstar quarterback Aaron Rodgers acknowledged he’s one of them, but he won’t pressure his unvaccinated Green Bay Packers teammates to get the jab. “Yeah, I’ve been immunized,” Rodgers told reporters. “You know there’s a lot of conversation around it, around the league and a lot of guys who have made statements and not made statements, owners who’ve made statements.” Despite the NFL having an incredibly strong rate of vaccination, there are some high-profile players who still oppose the jab. Among them is Rodgers’ division rival quarterback of the Minnesota Vikings, Kirk Cousins. Earlier this month, Cousins expressed his frustration with being forced to quarantine after having close contact with a teammate who tested positive. Cousins vowed to never let his absence happen again, but remains opposed to getting vaccinated. “There’s guys on the team that haven’t been vaccinated,” Rodgers acknowledged. “I think it’s a personal decision. I’m not going to judge those guys.” Even within the 93 percent of NFL players who are...
    The federal judge overseeing a case against an Infowars host is questioning prosecutors about their compliance with the Department of Justice's updated media policy, in wake of the request to seek an arrest warrant against Owen Shroyer. Shroyer, host of the daily Infowars talk-show The War Room With Owen Shroyer, was charged last week for his alleged involvement in the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.  Now, U.S. Magistrate Judge Zia Faruqui is asking prosecutors to detail their reasoning behind the determination that Shroyer was not at the riot as a member of the news media. 'The events of January 6th were an attack on the foundation of our democracy,' Faruqui wrote Tuesday in an order obtained by the Wall Street Journal. 'But this does not relieve the Department of Justice from following its own guidelines, written to preserve the very same democracy.'  The media policy in question went into effect last month and limits DOJ probes of journalists. The federal judge overseeing a case against Infowars host Owen Shroyer (pictured) is questioning prosecutors about their compliance with the Department of...
                      by Eric Lendrum  On Wednesday, a judge appointed by Barack Obama argued that it is “racist” to prosecute illegal aliens who return to the country after being deported and commit crimes on American soil, as reported by Breitbart. Judge Miranda Du, appointed by Obama to the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada in 2012, made the statements in a ruling in favor of a previously-deported illegal named Gustavo Carrillo-Lopez. Lopez had filed a motion to dismiss an indictment against him for the crime of illegally re-entering the country, claiming that such a charge was “discriminatory.” He claimed, without evidence, that federal law allowing for the deportation of illegals is in violation of the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution. Du ultimately agreed with Lopez’s assessment and granted the motion, repeating his claims in her opinion by stating that the law has “a discriminatory purpose, and has a disparate impact on Latinx persons.” “Carrillo-Lopez has demonstrated that Section 1326 [of the Immigration and Nationality Act] disparately impacts Latinx...
