The 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals won’t intervene in an antitrust lawsuit that has the potential of shaking up the way that professional sports games are packaged and distributed.
Here’s the Ruling in Fox’s Lawsuit Over Dish Network’s Time and Place Shifting Technology
Last August, U.S. District Judge Shira Scheindlin issued a surprising decision in a proposed class action lawsuit brought by fans of Major League Baseball and the National Hockey League upset at the high cost of out-of-market games on television and digital blackouts for in-market games.
According to a video released by the defender’s office, Tillotson and her client, an African-American male, are shown standing in a courtroom hallway when the officer, who has been identified as San Francisco Police Inspector Brian Stansbury, approaches and begins taking photos with what appears to be a camera phone.
Though he was loud, excited, brash and boisterous on that January evening in 2014, Richard Sherman did not use any profanity, nor did he disrespect Erin Andrews in any way. Given the circumstances of what had just occurred, the high of the victory, the low of being shoved in the face after an attempt at reconciliation with a vanquished opponent, it is easy for this writer to imagine a less savvy player behaving far worse in that situation.
After a two-month hiatus, Scandal has finally returned, and as far as the plot is concerned, we don’t know much more than we knew at the end of the winter finale: Olivia Pope was kidnapped to compel Fitz Grant to declare war against West Angola. But as we know, it’s about the journey, not the destination. Well, Shonda Rhimes, thanks for the ride!
Homeowners having work done to their homes may be concerned about not just the quality of the work, but also about the potential legal liability for injuries sustained by contractors performing the work.
By virtue of owning the property, homeowners may generally be held responsible for injuries caused by negligence in failing to maintain the property in a reasonably safe condition.

James Brown, the Godfather of Soul, died in 2006, but a legal battle over his estate has been going on ever since. Brown’s will left his entire estate to a charitable trust, leaving nothing to the woman he married in 2001, Tommie Rae Hynie.
But legally speaking, was Hynie even Brown’s spouse at all? The question arose because Hynie had married another man in 1997; she filed for an annulment of that marriage in 2004, the same year James Brown filed for an annulment of his marriage with Hynie. (Brown dismissed his action after the couple reconciled.)
After Brown’s death, Hynie contested his will, claiming that she had been married to Brown at the time. In a 46-page decision (!), a South Carolina judge agreed, potentially entitling Hynie to a
In addition to state laws prohibiting child abuse, the federal government has its own laws meant to protect children from neglect and other forms of abuse.
These laws include minimum child welfare standards to which the states are required to conform. However, a recent three-year study by the Children’s Advocacy Institute found that none of the states are actually meeting these standards, NPR reports.
What do federal child abuse laws require? And what did the study find when it comes to enforcement of these laws at the state level?
