    The jury in the trial of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin has reached a verdict on its second day of deliberations. Minnesota remains on edge as jury deliberations continued Tuesday before deciding the fate of Chauvin, who is charged in the death of George Floyd. More than 3,000 National Guard soldiers, along with state and local police officers, sheriff's deputies and other law enforcement personnel have flooded Minneapolis in recent days, with a verdict looming in the Chauvin trial, and following the fatal police shooting of 20-year-old Daunte Wright in the nearby city of Brooklyn Center.

    Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano reacted to the Harvey Weinstein verdict on “America’s Newsroom” Monday, calling it a "significant victory" for the disgraced movie producer and a "monumental setback" for prosecutors. Weinstein, 67, was convicted of first-degree commission of a criminal sexual act and third-degree rape but was acquitted of two more serious charges of predatory sexual assault, as well as first-degree rape. The charges Weinstein was convicted of carry a total sentence of up to 29 years in prison. “He’s still facing serious time," Napolitano said. "But, these are not the life sentences, the big ones...

    This Jury Just Awarded The Bakery $11 Million A family that has owned and operated an Ohio bakery near Oberlin College since 1885 suffered accusations of racism and protests after stopping a black Oberlin College student from shoplifting. . . A witness for the plaintiffs, accountant Frank Monaco, had testified that the Gibsons were set to lose about $5.8 million over the next 30 years because of the accusations of racism. He noted that the business had been in operation for over 130 years, adding, “When you have people thinking you’re racist, and you live in a small town, the...

    The Jury in the Gibson’s Bakery v. Oberlin College case has reached a verdict. According to our reporter in the Courtroom, the jury awarded $11 million. Here are the details: Allyn W. Gibson awarded $5.8 million, David Gibson #3 million, Gibson Bros. $2,274,500. Next Tuesday there will be a separate punitive damages which could be a double award (meaning tripling the $11 million to $33 million). According to Dan, Meredith Raimondo was held liable on the libel but not the other counts. We are still sorting out what that means in terms of damages against her.

By Susan CrabtreeMarch 25, 2019 Mueller's Verdict May Be In, But Closure Is Out of ReachAP Photo/Carolyn Kaster After nearly two years of alternating White House angst and Democratic anticipation, Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation and final report set off a frenzy in Washington over the weekend but provided neither closure nor solace for a divided nation. Indeed, it seemed to cement America’s dueling split-screen political realities in place for years to come. anticipation of the “big reveal,” Fox News’ Sean Hannity ran a banner headline Friday night:...

    A Georgia rape victim was awarded $1 billion in what’s believed to be the largest jury verdict ever handed down in an American assault case, according to reports Friday. “It’s one of the biggest victories for women in the United States,” Chris Stewart, a lawyer for victim Hope Cheston, said at a press conference. “They said a little black girl in Clayton County who was raped is worth $1 billion. That was a big win for us,” he said, according to the local station 11alive.com. Cheston was 14 years old and visiting a friend October 2012 when she was attacked...

    Nearly six years after a federal jury awarded Apple over $1 billion for Samsung infringements of iPhone intellectual properties, a jury retrying the damages portion of the case has reached a unanimous verdict, modifying the figure to $538,641,656 across five design and utility patents. The verdict comes after years of damages-only retrials and appeals, including a visit to the United States Supreme Court.Apple Inc. v. Samsung Electronics Co. began in April 2011 with Apple’s allegation that certain Samsung smartphones infringed on iPhone inventions including patents and trademarks. Apple won the trial in August 2012, receiving an initial award of...

    I’m not an attorney, so I’m ill equipped to discuss the merits of the prosecution’s case. All I know is a beautiful, innocent young woman’s life was snuffed out by an illegal alien drug dealer, who already had racked up seven felony convictions at the time of the shooting. That’s right. He’s an illegal alien. He’s not an undocumented immigrant. He’s not an undocumented worker. He is here illegally—for the sixth time—after having been booted from this country five times prior to this incident. The feds just can’t seem to keep this turd out of our country. So, I don’t...

    “I’m stunned that they couldn’t even get him on using the weapon,” Brad Steinle. Brad Steinle told the Chronicle that he can’t believe the “culmination of errors” that led to Kate’s death, including a lack of understanding about weapons, given the defense team’s argument to the jury that the gun went off accidentally. “I own a handgun,” Brad Steinle said. “I know that guns don’t just go off. But you have a jury full of people, the vast majority of which probably haven’t shot a gun before and don’t know the intricacies of how a gun works.”

    So the appalling Steinle decision will have unintended consequences that I will now predict: Attorney General Sessions, with the firm backing of the president, will redouble his efforts to do away with sanctuary cities both financially and legally. It may take some time, but the days of these sanctuaries are over. ICE will be set free to do its work. (It already has been, but even more so now with fewer complaints.) The border wall will be built, at least a good part of it, and Trump will find it far easier to get his way with border security. The...

    A married man was convicted Tuesday of murder and kidnapping in the 2007 death of a single mother from Colorado who led a double life as a paid escort. A judge sentenced 65-year-old Lester Ralph Jones to life in prison without parole after the jury delivered its verdict, according to the Grand Junction Daily Sentinel. It was Jones' second trial in the killing of Paige Birgfeld. The first ended in a mistrial in September when jurors couldn't reach a unanimous verdict.

    NORFOLK Anthony Burfoot sold his City Council votes to benefit developers for six years and then lied about it when questioned in federal court, a jury found Friday. The city’s treasurer, who previously served as vice mayor, was convicted on six of eight public corruption and perjury charges. He can remain free until he is sentenced April 17 in U.S. District Court, but he must submit to the supervision of a federal probation officer. Burfoot – who plans to appeal and continue working at the treasurer’s office while that’s pending – faces the possibility of 90 years in prison but...

    A judge found Baltimore police officer Edward Nero not guilty today on all four charges for his role in the events leading up to the death of 25-year-old Freddie Gray. Nero, 30, had been charged with second-degree assault, reckless endangerment and two counts of misconduct in office, all stemming from his actions during the initial stop and arrest of Gray, who suffered a catastrophic spinal injury while in police custody. Gray died one week later on April 19, 2015, and his death sparked days of violent protests in Baltimore.

    When President Obama made a deal with the Iranians in July over the terror sponsor's nuclear program, he left four Americans behind. One of those Americans is Washington Post reporter Jason Rezaian. By the administration's own admission and standards Rezaian, who has been held in an Iranian prison for more than a year, is being held on trumped up, bogus charges. This morning, it is being reported Rezaian has been issued a verdict on those same charges after a closed door "trial." An Iranian judiciary spokesman said Sunday that a verdict has been reached in the espionage case of Washington...
