    A couple in the north Indian state of Uttarakhand are suing their only son and his wife for not giving them a grandchild after six years of marriage. Sanjeev and Sadhana Prasad, 61 and 57, say they used up their savings raising their son, paying for his pilot's training as well as a lavish wedding. They are demanding compensation worth nearly $650,000 (£525,000) if no grandchild is born within a year. Their son and his wife do not appear to have commented. The highly unusual lawsuit was filed on grounds of "mental harassment".

    DENVER – A federal jury’s $14 million award to Denver protesters hit with pepper balls and a bag filled with lead during 2020 demonstrations over the police killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis could resonate nationwide as courts weigh more than two dozen similar lawsuits. The jury found police used excessive force against protesters, violating their constitutional rights, and ordered the city of Denver to pay 12 who sued. Nationwide, there are at least 29 pending lawsuits challenging law enforcement use of force during the 2020 protests, according to a search of the University of Michigan’s Civil Rights Litigation Clearinghouse....

    OTTAWA—The federal government says the RCMP is working with financial institutions to “unfreeze” bank accounts locked by emergency orders that targeted people who organized, participated in, or donated to the so-called Freedom Convoy blockades. Isabelle Jacques, assistant deputy minister of finance, told a Commons standing committee Tuesday that the RCMP began “sharing information” — related to the end of “unlawful” blockades — with banks and financial institutions as of Monday that should lead to affected accounts being “unfrozen.”

    On Monday Kyle Rittenhouse explained his new project and defamation lawsuits in the works against Whoopi Goldberg, Cenk Uygur, and other targets. Kyle Rittenhouse hinted that he may take action against the many leftwing politicians and operatives who smeared him as a murderer. The list included Joe Biden who called him a white supremacist in a campaign ad.
  • Covid-19 employer lawsuits accelerated in 2021. New pain points are on the horizon.

    Covid-19-related lawsuits against employers accelerated early in 2021 and maintained a steady pace throughout the year, but some new pain points for employers emerged in the fourth quarter that could foreshadow challenges on the horizon. According to law firm Fisher Phillips LLP's Covid-19 litigation tracker, there were at least 2,878 Covid-19-related employment lawsuits filed in 2021. That represented a significant jump over the 1,341 cases filed in 2020 when the pandemic was still in its earliest stages. The pace of lawsuits didn't significantly increase after it picked up steam in early 2021 — it hovered around 240 cases per quarter...

    Republican Senator Rogers filed the bill in order to attempt to hold mandating employers liable “for any health complications associated with any required medical products or procedures.”The bill aims to “protect employees who suffer any adverse reactions, injury, disability, loss of wages, pain and suffering or medical expenses correlating to the employer mandate. Furthermore, if any injuries arise within 120 days after receiving an employee mandated medical product or procedure, it would be presumed that the product or procedure is the cause.”

    Two lawsuits seeking $100 million each have been filed against a Michigan school district, its superintendent, and others after four students were fatally shot and others wounded at Oxford High School, a lawyer announced Thursday. The lawsuits were filed in federal court in Detroit by Jeffrey and Brandi Franz on behalf of their daughters, Riley, a 17-year-old senior who was shot in the neck in the November 30 shooting, and her sister Bella, a 14-year-old ninth grader who was next to her at the time, attorney Geoffrey Fieger said.

    Since President Biden took office in January, federal courts across the country have ruled against his administration time and again, finding many of his policies violate the Constitution. The Biden legal defeats have extended nationwide, impacting a wide range of issues — most recently vaccine mandates. On Tuesday, federal judges blocked the administration from enforcing two mandates requiring millions of Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccine. In one case, Judge Terry Doughty of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana issued a preliminary injunction halting the start of Biden's national vaccine mandate for health care workers. The...

    After 18-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse was acquitted of all charges in the deaths of two men who attacked him in Kenosha, Wisconsin, last year, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler immediately announced his request for action from the federal government. Now, some legal experts say any prosecution by President Joe Biden’s Justice Department claiming Rittenhouse committed civil rights violations while defending himself would almost certainly fail. And the chances of a successful civil lawsuit would likely be just as poor.

    I can tell you with certainty that right now attorneys for newly acquitted defendant Kyle Rittenhouse are working overtime. They are combing through every slanderous statement made about this young man. Every defamatory comment offered up before any facts were presented in a court of law is now under the microscope for possible litigation. Who is at risk of being sued? Politicians, including President Joe Biden, then a candidate without presidential immunity, was the first high-profile person to declare that young Kyle was a member of an Illinois militia. He ran a campaign ad condemning “white supremacists” featuring a photo...

    Nicholas Sandmann has his back and it looks like massive lawsuits by Kyle Rittenhouse are coming for those who smeared him. Therefore, in order to aid Team Rittenhouse, I would like to see a list compiled of those whose bank accounts should be subject to draining. I will start out the list with the name of John Heilemann, a frequent contributor on MSNBC. However, please add your own names to the list and why they deserve to have their bank accounts drained.So why is Heilemann at the top of my list for having his bank account drained? Well, just take...

    One month after the Biden administration announced a draconian federal vaccine mandate that impacted an estimated 100 million Americans and led to mass firings of public servants, teachers, and medical workers, the federal regulation still has not been formally issued. The Federalist reported . . in a post on Thursday that noted, “Joe Biden’s Vaccine Mandate Doesn’t Exist. It’s Just A Press Release”: Biden’s so-called vaccine mandate doesn’t exist — at least, not yet. So far, all we have is his press conference. No such rule even claiming to be legally binding has been issued yet. That’s why nearly two...

    Lawsuits filed Thursday in Clark, Snohomish and Whatcom counties claim the auditors in each of those counties “flipped votes,” kept illegal records of voters by political party, defied public records laws and, in some cases, used unverified election equipment during the November 2020 election. The suits were filed by the Washington Election Integrity Coalition United with an additional 28 individuals — including congressional candidate Joe Kent, Patriot Prayer founder Joey Gibson and Yacolt Town Council member Michelle Dawson — signing on as plaintiffs. Kent is challenging Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Battle Ground, for her 3rd Congressional District seat. Attempts to...

    President Biden on Friday dismissed arguments from Republicans that his administration’s new vaccine requirements amount to federal overreach and said some GOP governors are being “cavalier” with the health of their constituents. Asked about opponents vowing to challenge the new vaccination measures, Biden replied: “Have at it.” “I am so disappointed that particularly some Republican governors have been so cavalier with the health of these kids, so cavalier with the health of their communities,” Biden said during an appearance at a Washington, D.C., school. “We’re playing for real here, and this isn’t a game, and I don’t know of any...

    Texas Democrats’ rambling seven-page complaint may seek publicity for their runaway cause, but it promises only one thing: further ridicule.Armed with a case of beer and plenty of cell phones for selfies, on July 12 more than 50 Texas Democrats fled to Washington D.C. to deny the Texas House of Representatives the quorum necessary to vote on pending election integrity measures. Twenty-two of the runaway representatives, however, apparently found their original farce far from fulfilling, opting on Friday to go full rabid by suing Texas Gov. Greg Abbott and two of their fellow Republican House members, Speaker of the House...

He aggressively shilled for the administration’s coercive measures meant to promote vaccine compliance.“We’re also working with states to encourage vaccinations through incentives, which have made a difference throughout the vaccination effort.

    I know the term is getting overly used of late, but it doesn’t make it any less true: this is Orwellian. I have talked about the Westworld feel of this COVID vaccine drive. Despite all the smiles, prizes, and cheerleading, there is a malevolent strain ribboned through it. That malevolent strain quickly becomes a full-blown infection when anyone expresses ambivalence toward getting the vaccine or comes right out and says they will not receive it. There are millions of people who had COVID-19 and are fully recovered. These people have natural antibodies that are better protection against contracting COVID-19 a...

    This is a problem that Congress should have handled long before now, but since they didn’t, it’s showing up at the state level. The issue at hand is whether or not a business – in this case a nursing home in New York State – can be sued because someone died of COVID on the premises or contracted it there and then passed on elsewhere. The plaintiff in the case is Vivian Zayas, whose mother died of COVID last summer after staying for a time at the Our Lady of Consolation nursing home. Standing against her are multiple hospital industry...
