    Columbia University’s “Knight Institute” is suing the Trump administration on behalf of seven individuals alleging the president “blocked” them from reading his Twitter feed. The lawsuit, filed with the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, alleges that due to Mr. Trump’s usage of his personal Twitter account to engage with the public, his @realdonaldtrump Twitter account is a “public forum,” blocking citizens of access is “unconstitutional,” and his personal Twitter account should be treated as a public forum under federal law.

The lawsuit filed Tuesday in California court accuses the oil companies – including Chevron, Exxon Mobil and ConocoPhillips – of ignoring warnings that fossil fuels would cause global warming and of engaging in campaigns to discredit the claims of climate scientists, the...

    In 2012, my promotional printing company, Hands on Originals, was approached by a customer to print a message that conflicted with my conscience. When I said no, they sued me. Hi, my name is Blaine Adamson. I got into the T-shirt printing business because I wanted to create Christian shirts that people would want to wear. Christian T-shirts at the time were so cheesy, they were so bad. For all the years that I’ve been running my business, Hands on Originals, I’ve happily served and employed people of all backgrounds, of all walks of life. That’s why it was hard...

    SACRAMENTO, California, September 11, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) -- A federal judge told three Christian congregations in California that they have no case in wanting to opt out of the state’s requirement that they cover abortions through their health insurance plans. U.S. District Court Judge Kimberly Mueller upheld a 2014 requirement of the California Department of Managed Health Care (DMHC) that all employers throughout the state must pay for abortion insurance for their employees. She told the three churches that they failed to state an adequate claim. The churches — Foothill Church in Glendora, Calvary Chapel Chino Hills in Chino, and The...

    A Christian family is preparing to sue a school for allowing children to change their ‘gender identity’ on a daily basis, and for implying parents who oppose are bigoted and “transphobic”. Much of the mainstream media has claimed the parents are opposed to boys wearing a dress. But their legal representatives have said clothing is “trivial” and the issue is about “ideology” and confusing very young children. Nigel Rowe, 44, and his wife Sally, 42, removed their six-year-old son from an unnamed school after a classmate was declared “transgendered” and came to the school demanding to be recognised as female...

    It’s been a rough few months for anyone who cares about substantive action on climate change. But a bright spot emerged in July when a federal appeals court came down in favor of a rule enacted by Barack Obama that will curtail methane, a greenhouse gas 30 times more potent than carbon dioxide that is being emitted in high amounts from natural gas and petroleum hydrofracking. The methane case was another indication that if we want climate action from this government, the judiciary has become the only branch likely to give it to us. That is frightening for the obvious...

    The State of New York has agreed to pay $22 million to a boxer who sustained severe brain damage during a heavyweight bout at Madison Square Garden nearly four years ago, in a case that raised serious questions about the postfight care given to athletes who have just exchanged repeated blows to the head. The settlement, awarded to the former boxer Magomed Abdusalamov and his family, was approved Friday by Judge Jeanette Rodriguez-Morick in New York City Civil Court. It was first reported by ESPN. A separate lawsuit filed against the three ringside physicians is pending in state Supreme Court....

    CBS ^ | Sept 7, 2017 | AP
    The 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Thursday rejected the Trump administration's limited view of who is allowed into the country under its revised travel ban. A three-judge panel decided that grandparents, cousins and similarly close extended family relationships of people in the U.S. shouldn't be prevented from coming to the country. The court also said refugees already accepted by a resettlement agency shouldn't be banned. The appeals court decision upholds a decision from a district court judge in Hawaii, who said the administration's view was too narrow. The decision impacts the revised travel ban, which temporarily suspends new...

    The woman who created the 2012 deportation amnesty for Dreamers filed a lawsuit Friday protesting the Trump administration’s move to phase out the program, saying the decision was done on President Trump’s executive “whim.” Janet Napolitano, who as President Obama’s Homeland Security secretary created the DACA program, is now the president of the University of California, and is leading the school system’s lawsuit demanding the program be reinstated. She said her school system stands to lose money and the chance to educate some of its 4,000 illegal immigrant students, as well as perhaps having to let go its illegal immigrant...

    The University of California sued the Trump administration in federal court Friday, accusing the president of violating the rights of students and the UC by rescinding a program that temporarily prevents deportation of immigrants brought to this country illegally as children. UC President Janet Napolitano served as U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security in the Obama administration from 2009 to 2013. The UC suit, filed in U.S. District Court in San Francisco, accuses the administration of “wrongly and unconstitutionally” ending the program on “nothing more than unreasoned executive whim.” DACA participants “represent the best of who we are — hard working,...

    In a surprise move, the Trump administration on Thursday sided with a Colorado bakery whose owner is arguing to the Supreme Court that he should not need to bake a cake for a same-sex couple when their ceremony violates his religious beliefs. Colorado's public accommodation law bans discrimination based on sexual orientation, and its courts have ruled that means businesses catering to the public cannot discriminate against same-sex couples seeking services for weddings or other commitment ceremonies. Masterpiece Cakeshop, however, is run by Jack Phillips, a man who incorporates his Christian faith into the way he runs his business. Baking...
