    "A jury said loudly that the state of Iowa must take responsibility when you hurt somebody. That to (Clark), seeing that verdict, was as therapeutic as any amount of money," Mel Orchard III, one of Clark's lawyers, told the Press-Citizen. "But money is of course a necessary part of compensating anyone. That amount of money is a drop in the bucket in terms of what they took from him and what they left him with." After the verdict, Clark said, “No matter what happens from here on out, I’m not only free from prison, but I’m also free from the state’s prison of lies. With this verdict, the rebuilding of my life can continue.” Orchard also noted the lasting impact that prison had on Clark. "No matter your belief in your own innocence, your own innocence doesn't protect you from what prison does to people," Orchard said. The Press-Citizen reached out to the Iowa Attorney General's office to ask if the state plans to appeal the jury's decision or seek a retrial. The paper did not receive a response at...

The federal jury awarded the damages to Vincent Bell on Wednesday in a a suit he filed against the city and county of San Francisco and several Sheriff’s deputies. Bell, 40, was one of six people charged with taking part in the 2012 murder of a man who was beaten and shot, the San Francisco Chronicle reported.

David Chiu, said they are weighing whether to appeal. The city attorney’s office remains “adamant that the Sheriff’s deputies acted reasonably and appropriately...
    As Republicans continue to find fresh energy to push discriminatory anti-trans legislation, following the news can feel pretty frustrating and depressing. With that in mind, it’s important to celebrate every win we can. A recent example comes to us from the suburbs of Kansas City, Missouri, where an openly trans former student was awarded more than $4 million in damages on sex discrimination charges, as reported by The Los Angeles Blade. Why? Though the student had changed his name and updated his birth certificate with his name and sex, the school district still refused to let him use the boys’ bathroom and locker rooms. According to the lawsuit, the Blue Springs R-IV School District refused to allow the student access to boys’ restrooms and locker rooms and instead was made to use a separate, single person still outside of the boys’ locker room. This was in spite of the fact that the student actually participated in boys’ sports, including boys’ football and track teams in middle school. The student’s desire to participate in sports changed, however, when the student began high...

    AUBURN (CBS13) — A local World War II veteran received the Purple Heart Monday, decades after he was injured. Cheering, saluting and capturing the moment all took place on Monday morning at the American Legion Post 84 in Auburn. All of the fanfare and proverbial red carpet was rolled out on the lawn of the American Legion for Marvin Cornett. The local U.S. Army World War II paratrooper veteran is 99-years-old and set to turn 100 in July. On Monday, he was awarded an honor that’s been owed to him for more than 76 years after being injured. “It was very surprising that he didn’t have his Purple Heart. We found out a few months ago,” Jan Mendoza, Cornett’s daughter, said. Cornett was injured by mortar fire in Italy back in 1944 while serving with the 82nd Airborne. He didn’t receive a Purple Heart. Fast forward to the present day, Cornett’s family contacted a veteran-owned company called Heritage Arsenal. The company dug into his record finding the missing medal, a Purple Heart, that should’ve been pinned to his chest. “I...

    A new mom in the UK is getting up to $12,000 in damages — for not getting invited to Christmas drinks while she was on maternity leave, according to UK reports. Catriona Howie won an employment tribunal claim against her employer, the Croydon kitchen design company Holloways Of Ludlow, for “injury to the feelings” over the invite slight, The Times of London said . Company director Sarah Nelson had told the hearing that the firm had not thrown a proper Christmas party in 2018 because it was struggling financially, and instead just put $275 behind the bar at a local pub. Accepting that Howie had not been invited, Nelson insisted it was just because “it was not a proper party and nor was it a normal year,” the UK paper said. Judge Corinna Ferguson accepted that “there was no deliberate decision” to exclude Howie — but ruled that the reason she was not invited “was that no one thought about her.” “Had she been at work around this time, she would certainly have been invited. She was overlooked because...
    Britain’s Royal Mail will reportedly compensate a Hindu mail manager around £200,000 after a tribunal found that he had faced harassment and discrimination at work. A coworker called the Hindu manager, Mathan Shunmugaraja, a “sly dog,” while mistaking him for a Muslim, in a dispute over using a room at the Cardiff Royal Mail center, The Guardian reported. (RELATED: DOJ Sues Alabama Housing Authority For Segregating White And Black Residents) Shunmugaraja used to conduct work-related meetings in a room one of his Christian colleagues, Adam Day, used to pray in, according to the Daily Mail. Day interrupted one of Shanmugaraja’s meetings and said that since he didn’t use the “Muslim prayer room” for work, Shunmugaraja shouldn’t use his, the Daily Mail reported. The tribunal also learned that after Shunmugaraja took time off of work because of anxiety following the incident, one of his supervisors threatened to halt his sick pay, The Guardian reported. Shunmugaraja was eventually dismissed, and he unsuccessfully applied for several other jobs, failing to secure employment. The worker who called Shunmugaraja “a sly dog” in 2017 claimed his slur...
