    A coalition of news organizations is seeking evidence surrounding the alleged home invasion of Paul Pelosi’s residence in October. The media outlets filed a court motion last week seeking the release of evidence introduced in David DePape’s preliminary hearing. This comes as other stories across the country, such as Biden’s classified documents blunder, have been stealing some of the clout of this bizarre episode. **SNIP** It includes body camera footage from police officers who responded at the scene of the Pelosi residence, footage from Capitol Police surveillance cameras at the home, and video of a post-arrest interview with DePape, according...

    A program trained with the help of artificial intelligence is set to help a defendant contest his case in a U.S. court next month, New Scientist reported. Instead of addressing the court, the program, which will run on a smartphone, will supply appropriate responses through an earpiece to the defendant, who can then use them in the courtroom. In the past few years, AI has burst onto the scene like never before, writing poetry, computer code, and even college essays at the drop of a hat. With every new iteration of the programs being released, the capabilities of the bots...

    The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit handed down a 13-3 decision Friday striking down the regulatory gun control that banned bump stocks under former President Donald Trump. Reuters reported that the court intimated that actions on guns should be taken by Congress rather than the executive branch. Circuit Judge Jennifer Walker Elrod wrote the majority opinion for the Fifth Circuit and also opined that the framers of the bump stock ban did not provide “fair warning that possession of a non-mechanical bump stock is a crime.”

    A three-judge appellate panel on Friday dismissed a challenge to Connecticut's transgender athlete policy, after a group of biological females said it was unfair that they have to race against biological males who identify as female.In its decision, the 2nd US Circuit Court of Appeals in New York City upheld a lower court judge's dismissal of a lawsuit challenging the policy, brought by four female runners opposed to letting transgender athletes compete in high school sports. According to the judges, the girls lacked standing to sue, calling their claims that they were deprived of wins, state titles and athletic scholarship...

    A tough, voter-approved gun control law in Oregon sees high-capacity magazines prohibited from being sold and transferred. New gun buyers must also obtain permits, criminal background checks, fingerprints, and go through training courses. A number of lawsuits have been filed challenging the measure, which was narrowly approved by voters last month. The outcome of this measure is being carefully watched. It is one of the first sweeping gun restrictions since the New York law limiting gun ownership outside the home was struck down by the Supreme Court in June. An earlier decision blocking Thursday’s implementation of the law remains temporarily...

    Marc Elias, the Democrat lawyer who played a key role in creating the “Russia collusion” hoax, and who pushed for vote-by-mail in the 2020 election, gloated Monday that Republicans were being “destroyed” in court cases over the 2022 midterm election process. Elias is primarily known for challenging election results in close races so that Democrats win, even in cases where Republicans appear to win on Election Day. He pushed for vote-by-mail in 2020 and is active in several lawsuits to liberalize voting rules today.

    Victory for a Christian baker was announced on Friday after years of going around the court system for a lawsuit over a rejected wedding cake order. The order for the wedding cake depicted two lesbians; therefore, creating such a cake conflicted with the Cakeshop owner’s religious beliefs about marriage. “Judge rules Christian baker was allowed to refuse to sell cake to lesbian couple,” LGBTQ Nation reported, adding: “In his decision, Kern County Superior Court Judge Eric Bradshaw said that the state’s Department of Fair Employment and Housing had failed to prove that Tastries Bakery owner Cathy Miller had intentionally discriminated...

    President Donald Trump was furious when the Supreme Court dismissed a lawsuit to overturn the 2020 election results, according to details revealed during a Thursday hearing by the House select committee investigating the January 6, 2021, Capitol riot. The committee shared a message from the Secret Service that described Trump's reaction to the news on December 11, 2020, as "livid." "Just fyi. POTUS is pissed — breaking news — Supreme Court denied his lawsuit. He is livid now," the message read. Cassidy Hutchinson, a former aide to ex-White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, also testified to the committee that...

    A federal appeals court in New York on Tuesday handed former President Trump a partial victory in a defamation lawsuit brought by a woman who accused Trump of raping her in the 1990s, with the court ruling that presidents are covered by a federal law that gives broad legal immunity to government employees. A divided three-judge panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 2nd Circuit said a lower court erred when it ruled that Trump’s accuser, E. Jean Carroll, could sue Trump personally for the allegedly defamatory statements he made about her during his presidency.
  • Ban on Individuals Obtaining Firearms while Under Indictment is Unconstitutional

    On September 19, 2022, the District Court, W.D. Texas, found the ban on individuals under indictment from receiving firearms in federal law, (§ 922(n)) to be unconstitutional under the standards clarified by the Bruen Decision of 2022. In the United States, people are considered innocent until proven guilty. If a mere indictment can eliminate the ability to exercise an enumerated constitutional right before there is any conviction, that standard is set on its head.Courts loaded with Progressive Judges previously danced around this obvious barrier by promoting the fiction the Second Amendment did not apply to individuals. The 1943 Cases decision...

    On August 30, 2022, a three-judge panel in the Third Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously ruled the Pennsylvania government violated the Takings clause, the Second Amendment, and the Fourteenth Amendment when they refused to return a gun collection of the parents of a man who was convicted of murder. The parents never committed a crime. The state never used the parents’ gun collection as evidence. From a list of properties, I estimate 47 guns, accessories, computers, and other items valued at $40,000 or more were taken.The State refused to return the parents’ property under the rule of force: we have...

    On a peaceful Saturday in Perth, 12,000 miles from the clamour and bombast at Flushing Meadows, Margaret Court has just seen Serena Williams thwarted in a final tilt at equalling her place among the tennis immortals. While “greatest of all time” messages flash up on the electronic tickers inside Arthur Ashe Stadium, the statistical greatest, the woman with 24 grand slam singles titles to the departing Williams’ 23, is at the end of this long-distance telephone call. It is a distinction that now looks destined to last another generation at least. And yet the realisation brings a complex swirl of...

    WFYI ^ | 07/29/2022 | ERIC WEDDLE
    A federal appeals court ruled Thursday the Archdiocese of Indianapolis acted within the law when it fired a long-time counselor because she is in a same-sex marriage. The Chicago-based Seventh Circuit Court of Appeals ruled the former counselor was employed as a minister at the Catholic faith-based Roncalli High School, and she was expected to support the school’s religious mission and follow church teachings in her personal life to remain employed. The Catholic Church does not support gay marriage. The court affirmed a district court’s year-old decision in a 27-page ruling and barred discrimination, retaliation and hostile work environment claims...

    After telling an adult female prosecutor that courts didn’t let “girls” litigate in the “old days,” a federal judge tried to ban her from his courtroom for life. An appellate court unanimously reversed that prohibition, and one Donald Trump appointee called him out for behavior “beneath the dignity of a federal judge.”U.S. District Judge Lynn Hughes, an 80-year-old Ronald Reagan-appointee to the Southern District of Texas, imposed the sanction on a Assistant U.S. Attorney after the lawyer made errors that resulted in the dismissal of an indictment. The 5th Circuit ultimately reversed Hughes’ ruling. Hughes rebuked the prosecutor: “You’re supposed...

    ALBANY — Gov. Hochul is facing political pressure to appoint a progressive jurist to the state’s highest court following the sudden resignation of Chief Judge Janet DiFiore. Critics contend that DiFiore, who stepped down amid reports of a state ethics probe, led a conservative bloc of four judges that pushed the seven-member Court of Appeals to the right ideologically. Lawmakers and advocates are hoping that Hochul will take the opportunity to appoint someone with a broader understanding of how the criminal justice system impacts minority and low-income New Yorkers, or someone with a public defender background to lead the courts.

    There are times when defendants are forced to use strategies that expose others to wrongdoing. The case of Pfizer outing the U.S. government for their knowledge of wrongdoing is a doozy. ... the lawyer representing whistleblower Brook Jackson said Pfizer is arguing the court should dismiss Jackson’s lawsuit alleging fraud in Pfizer’s COVID-19 clinical trials because the U.S. government knew about the wrongdoings but continued to do business with the vaccine maker. A lawsuit filed by whistleblower Brook Jackson alleging Pfizer and two of its contractors manipulated data and committed other acts of fraud during Pfizer’s COVID-19 clinical trials is...

    A District Court for the Southern District of Ohio on Thursday morning issued a temporary restraining order prohibiting the Air Force from enforcing the vaccine mandate against any airman who has filed a request for a religious accommodation, according to court documents. Judge Matthew W. McFarland granted a motion brought by airmen to extend a court order from March that prohibited the Air Force from disciplining or separating plaintiffs fighting the mandate based on their religious beliefs to all airmen who filed requests for religious accommodation as a “class.” The court order is a temporary restraining order (TRO), which is...

    With the repeal of Roe v. Wade, more and more Democrats have begun to view the Supreme Court as illegitimate. Many liberal New Yorkers hope President Biden and the Senate can somehow expand the Court or radically reimagine it in other ways. Such a plan is years from being realized, though, and the 6-3 conservative majority is going nowhere anytime soon. For now, furious activists would be better off directing their energy elsewhere. The good news is that a rare opportunity to shape a different high court emerged on Monday with the news that New York’s most powerful judge is...

    Max Boot who is calling for direct US military involvement to defeat Russia and driven them out of Ukraine, is now setting up the argument for a totally different form of US Government. Basically, he's losing his mind over the recent Supreme Court decisions and is tired of small states having equal representation in the US Senate and wants something done about it.
