    TORONTO (AP) — The Canadian Football League and the CFL Players’ Association broke off negotiations on a collective bargaining agreement Saturday. The move came after the two sides met for roughly 16 hours into the night Friday, then returned to the bargaining table Saturday morning. The current agreement, reached in 2019 and amended last year to allow the league to have a 14-game season, expired at midnight. It’s unclear if, or when, the league and union will meet again. Training camps are scheduled to open Sunday, but players with six of the CFL’s nine teams will be in a legal strike position Sunday. Players with the Edmonton Elks, Calgary Stampeders and Montreal Alouettes will still report to camp. That’s because those three teams won’t be in a legal strike position until later in May because of provincial labor laws. The regular season is scheduled to begin June 9. Negotiations resumed negotiations Wednesday, six days after the CFLPA rejected the CFL’s first proposal. The lone previous CFL strike came in 1974 and was resolved before the season.

    Shelley Lynn Thornton, the woman whose very conception sparked one of the Supreme Court’s most significant legal rulings in U.S. history, is telling her story and making it clear she won’t take anyone’s side in the public debate over abortion. After years of anonymity, Thornton was recently identified as the daughter of Norma McCorvey, the woman who challenged Texas’ restrictive abortion laws decades ago under the pseudonym of Jane Roe. McCorvey sought to abort Thornton during her pregnancy, but since the legal battle stretched on for years, Thornton was born and put up for adoption while McCorvey won the case of Roe V. Wade. This was the landmark Supreme Court decision that legally permitted women to have an abortion in the first trimester without undue government interference. ABC News’ Linsey Davis spoke to Thornton for her first TV interview, where the conversation revolved around Thornton’s thoughts on her connection to the case. Thornton argued, however, that “it had nothing to do with me [because] I wasn’t the one who created this law. I’m not the one who created this...
    Journalist Nikole Hannah-Jones, creator of The New York Times' controversial 1619 Project, said she will not become a faculty member at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill unless she's guaranteed tenure. In a letter addressed to the university this week, Hannah-Jones' legal team said she will not begin her position as the Knight Chair in Race and Investigative Journalism at the UNC Hussman School of Journalism and Media in July as previously scheduled – and will not take the position without "the protection and security of tenure," NC Policy Watch first reported Tuesday. She also indirectly renewed threats to bring a federal discrimination lawsuit against the university.  The UNC-Chapel Hill Board of Trustees declined to vote on Hannah-Jones’ tenure when she was first recruited for the position in April reportedly amid political objections from trustees and pressure from conservatives who have sought to block her hire altogether.  UNC ACCUSED OF TOKENIZING, EXPLOITING MINORITIES AFTER 1619 PROJECT'S HANNAH-JONES DENIED TENURE  She was instead offered a five-year, fixed-term contract – despite the fact previous Knight chairs, defined as media professionals...
    The former daughter-in-law of Trump CFO Allen Weisselberg says she's reluctant to bring any harm to her dear friend Donald Trump and believes he did not take part in tax evasion schemes, as she has been caught up in the ongoing criminal investigation into his family business.   Jennifer Weisselberg, who a source tells DailyMail.com will be testifying before a grand jury called in the case, claims the former president is a 'sweet' and 'generous' man who helped pay for her children's private schooling out of kindness and good-will, rather than to dodge taxes.  If there was any unlawful activity within the Trump Organization it would be thanks to her former in-laws who still work for the company, she told DailyMail.com in an exclusive interview. Up until 2018, the mother-of-two was married to Barry Weisselberg, who manages Trump's Central Park ice rinks, and her father-in-law was Allen Weisselberg, who became the chief financial officer when Trump became president.   'Allen orchestrated the finances, and Donald is just sort of naïve,' Jennifer said. 'It's provable that his trusted CFO is putting [Trump] and his...
    Mediaite founder and ABC News chief legal analyst Dan Abrams said on Tuesday that the DOJ continuing to defend Donald Trump in a defamation case is “actually very admirable.” E. Jean Carroll filed a defamation suit against Trump while he was president, for comments he made responding to her publicly accusing him of rape. The DOJ sought to defend Trump in the case, and it is continuing to do so under Merrick Garland. Abrams blasted Trump for making the comments about Carroll, but emphasized that the legal issues at hand were not about whether one finds his comments offensive. Abrams spoke with law professor Steve Vladeck about the position the DOJ is taking and whether they would be successful on appeal. The professor had written that the DOJ position under Barr “may well be substantively correct” and that while he too found the former President’s comments highly offensive, he still believes the Justice Department’s position would likely be supported by an appellate court. Abrams went on to say, “I admire the Justice Department for taking this position”: Donald Trump’s...
    All but one member of the Seattle City Council voted to cover socialist Councilwoman Kshama Sawant's legal fees amid some residents' push for a recall vote on Sawant next year. The City Council voted to use taxpayer funds to pay for Sawant's costs, which could add up to $75,000, the Seattle Times reported. "We have a process for picking our elected representatives, it's through elections," Councilman Andrew Lewis said, according to the Seattle Times. "It's a slippery slope if we start picking and choosing who does or does not receive these legal representations." SEATTLE COUNCILWOMAN RIPS DEPARTING POLICE CHIEF CARMEN BEST A group of Seattle residents led by Ernie Lou filed a petition to recall Sawant on Aug. 18. The group alleges Sawant misused City Council resources in promoting a ballot initiative and misused her position by allowing protesters into City Hall at night this summer, among other purported violations.

    New York Giants: DeAndre Baker’s legal issues will force management’s hand in 2021 By: Alexander Wilson August 13, 2020 PrevPreviousNew York Giants’ Joe Judge indicates 2020 will be a rebuilding year ShareTweet0 SharesWhen New York Giants cornerback DeAndre Baker was placed on the Commissioner’s Exempt List, most knew the probability of him returning to the NFL was slim. Head coach Joe Judge was asked about his legal issue several weeks ago during his first press conference, stating that he would let the front office deal with him. Judge hasn’t had an easy time acclimating to the head coaching position for the Giants, being dealt blow after blow with COVID-19 and several criminal charges being pressed against his players. Luckily, he does have plenty of bright faces in the building, including Daniel Jones, Saquon Barkley, Xavier McKinney, and more. When it comes to Baker, though, the likelihood of him playing with the Giants again is dwindling. Ultimately, the team will need to find a supplement for him moving forward. The Giants were...

    BERLIN (AP) — Facebook’s fight against German regulators was dealt a blow Tuesday after a top court agreed with antitrust authorities that the company was abusing its dominant market position in its use of users’ data to better target ads. The Federal Cartel Office, or Bundeskartellamt, last year determined Facebook was exploiting its dominance in social media to force users to share data from other Facebook-owned services like WhatsApp and Instagram, as well as third-party websites through the “Like” and “Share” buttons. It gave Facebook several months to stop collecting data and combining it with Facebook users’ accounts without their consent. Facebook appealed that decision, and a Duesseldorf court ruled it did not have to comply with the regulations until the case had been decided. In its decision Tuesday, the Federal Court of Justice in Karlsruhe overturned that decision, agreeing with the Cartel Office that Facebook’s terms of use leave “private Facebook users with no choice” and said the company had to comply with the regulators. “There are no serious doubts about Facebook’s dominant position in...
