    A local family says their disabled son was unfairly turned away from the ABQ BioPark Zoo for not wearing a mask despite having a doctor’s note. The Peterson family decided to go to the zoo for a family outing on Sept 19. They were all wearing masks at the time, except for 14-year-old Nicholas who is severely disabled. “We just feel like he was definitely mistreated,” said his father, Robert Peterson. “He was refused because he was not wearing a mask…. By the time my wife got him back to the car he was in tears and just upset. He’s...

    Can the residents of Seattle whose property and businesses were destroyed, vandalized, or shut down in June, when the city for three weeks allowed and approved of the “autonomous zone,” now sue the city? Two such lawsuits have in fact already been filed in federal court; and in one of them, seventeen different persons and businesses are seeking direct compensation from the city for actual losses suffered. Ironically, these lawsuits, which attack what legal immunity cities may have in setting the policies and practices of their police forces, occur in conjunction with the vigorous national campaign by Black Lives Matter,...

    The Michigan legislature is suing Gov. Gretchen Whitmer for unilaterally extending Michigan’s coronavirus state of emergency, House Speaker Lee Chatfield, R-Levering, and Senate Majority Leader Mike Shirkey, R-Clark Lake, announced in a Wednesday, May 6 news conference. The lawsuit is going to the Michigan Court of Claims with hopes for an expedited ruling, Chatfield said. The House and Senate declined to extend the state of emergency last week, but Whitmer later announced it would be extended from April 30 through May 28 – citing a 1945 law allowing her to do so. The 1945 Emergency Powers of Governor Act allows...

    A Minnesota voter frustrated because President Donald Trump would be the only name on the state Republican primary ballot in March is challenging the move and muddying the launch of the state’s first presidential primary in decades. Jim Martin, of Lake Elmo, a small business operator and political independent, filed a lawsuit over the primary rules, the Star Tribune reported. Martin said he doesn’t want to participate in a “Soviet-style” election in which the political parties dictate who the voters can elect. “I want to be in an American election,” Martin said. “It’s something that sets us apart from the...

    Trump said "this crooked" Schiff "fraudulently mischaracterized" his July 25 Ukraine phone call to congratulate the new president "to make it sound absolutely horrible." "I'm going to go after him," Trump said. "They say, 'sir, he has immunity, because he said it in Congress he has immunity.' I don't care about immunity. He can't have immunity. He made up a phone call." Trump added his "totally congenial" phone call was twisted by a "totally terrible fraudulent thing" as Schiff was "talking to the American public, lying and cheating" and now "he has to pay a big price." Trump: Even if...

    When he was made assistant manager of a pool in Fairfax, Virginia, two years ago, Mateusz Fijalkowski spoke barely any English and did not know how to swim. In the United States from Poland on a summer program, Fijalkowski spent most of his time here hospitalized after nearly drowning in that pool. Now Fijalkowski, 23, is suing the police officers and lifeguard who pulled him out. Often police are sued for being too aggressive with mentally ill people; in this instance, they are accused of not doing enough to stop a man in the midst of a bipolar episode. Fijalkowski...
