    "White House should have waited to call Trump racist; look who got sued for forcing a judge to recuse herself!" The White House jumped on comments House Speaker Paul Ryan made in order to characterize Donald Trump as a racist. But using the Obama administration’s exact same logic, Obama would also be a racist. Just last year the United States Department of Justice was sued after it forced an immigration judge to recuse herself from “all immigration cases involving Iranians,”according to the Daily Caller. Trump has long been critical of U.S. District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel, who is hearing a...

    CNN ^ | June 10, 2016 | Eliott C. McLaughlin
    (CNN) — The number appears resounding: More than one million people want Judge Aaron Persky to lose his job for what's been widely viewed as a lenient sentence in the Brock Turner rape case. So, more people than who live in San Francisco want to see Persky tossed out for handing a white, well-to-do former Stanford University athlete a six-month sentence for sexually assaulting an unconscious woman. But will this yield any real action, or is this just another example of "slacktivism" or "clicktivism," arguably meaningless acts of supporting social causes without investing any real effort in effecting change?

    Is the National Council of La Raza itself a racist organization? Regardless of the organization’s suspect ties, the majority of its members are not. When one examines all the organization’s activities, they are commendable non-profit projects, such as education and housing programs. La Raza defenders usually respond by calling anyone making these allegations “a racist” for having called attention to La Raza’s racist links. If they are unwilling to admit past misdeeds, they can at least state — unequivocally — that they officially oppose the racist and anti-American positions of MEChA, and any other groups that espouse similar views.

First up is filling the late Antonin Scalia’s seat, which will give the court a five-vote liberal majority consisting, on her inauguration, of Sonia Sotomayor (63), Elena Kagan (56), Ruth Bader Ginsburg (83) and Stephen Breyer (78).

The state's Democratic Party had challenged the law, signed by former Republican Governor Robert McDonnell, saying it was politically motivated and intended to deter young and minority voters from turning out on Election Day. "The court's mission is to judge not the wisdom of the Virginia voter ID law, but rather its constitutionality," wrote U.S. District Judge Henry Hudson in his decision.

I suppose that most who quote this verse could not tell you where it found.

    Federal Judge Susan Dlott wrote the book on racial profiling in 2002. Last week, she ripped it into one million tiny pieces when three black people broke into her $8 million Cincinnati home and started beating her and her 79-year old husband. "There's three black men with guns at our house," Dlott told a 911 operator after she escaped the home invasion and ran to her neighbor's house one mile away. And just in case the operator did not hear her the first time, Dlott said it again: "My husband and the dogs are still there. There are three black...

However, Judge Walker took her oath respecting the sacred book of her Islamic faith, the Holy Quran, while also wearing a hijab. A video posted on Facebook...

    A federal judge has banished the Baby Jesus and the Three Wise Men from an Indiana high school's Christmas musical. U.S. District Court Judge Jon DeGuilio, appointed to the bench by President Obama, issued an injunction against Concord Community Schools on Dec. 2. The court order forbids students from presenting a live Nativity scene during the Concord High School's Christmas Spectacular. The judge said that portion of the show is overtly religious in nature. "The living nativity scene impermissibly conveys an endorsement of religion and thus runs afoul of the Establishment Clause," the judge wrote in his ruling.

    A court handed Judicial Watch a small setback, but didn’t do any favors for Hillary Clinton, either. Earlier, Judicial Watch sued the State Department to force them to prioritize the review and release of Benghazi-related e-mails. Ruling on behalf of the State Department, Judge Amit Mehta ordered the release to stick to the current schedule: Judge Amit Mehta said that it would be “unwise and potentially risky” to order the government to quickly release some of the 329 emails specifically related to the 2012 terror attack in Benghazi, Libya, which it had recently discovered.Those emails — along with tens...

    Ramon Ochoa probably isn’t laughing now. Ochoa, who had previously served about six years for firearms possession by a felon, got into trouble with his probation officer, which resulted in Ochoa being back inside a Fresno courtroom. Ochoa’s mouth got him into more hot water when he laughed at O’Neill’s sentence, saying, “Anything else?” “Well, you just talked yourself into more time,” O’Neill replied. The judge doubled Ochoa’s sentence to two years for laughing at the court.
