    An American tourist traveling in Hawaii has revealed she was confronted by a local mother who demanded that she leave a beach because she was wearing a bikini.  Savannah Sims, from Houston, Texas, opened up about the awkward encounter in a TikTok video, in which she explained that she had been laying out on a beach on the 'big island' in Hawaii when she was accosted by an angry mom who took issue with her two-piece bathing suit.   'So I just had the worst experience in Hawaii on the big island,' she began the clip - which she appears to have filmed just minutes after the confrontation. 'I lay down at this spot that's right off the road. And this family gets out of their car and sits down like kind of close to me. And the mom starts saying to her boyfriend, "No I can't have that. That's not OK with me."' Say what? Texas native Savannah Sims has revealed an angry mother told her to 'leave' a beach in Hawaii simply because she was wearing a bikini ...
    (CNN)The Justice Department is appealing a court ruling that denied its move to substitute itself for President Donald Trump as the defendant in the defamation lawsuit brought by E Jean Carroll, the former magazine columnist who has accused the President of raping her.The appeal is a sign that the Justice Department is continuing to back Trump in court even after he lost the presidential election. Last month Judge Lewis Kaplan rejected the Justice Department's attempt to replace Trump in the lawsuit. The Justice Department sought to intervene in the case, which, if approved, would have likely led to the dismissal of the case because the government cannot be sued for defamation. Judge denies DOJ effort to end E. Jean Carroll defamation suit against TrumpCarroll sued Trump alleging he defamed her when he denied the rape, said she wasn't his type, and claimed she made the allegation to boost sales of her new book. In his opinion, Kaplan rejected the Justice Department's argument that Trump's statements regarding Carroll were made within the scope of his employment, writing, "while commenting on the...
    PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The American Civil Liberties Union of Oregon has filed a class-action lawsuit against Portland Police and the city on behalf of journalists and legal observers who they say were targeted and attacked by the police while documenting protests. The suit in Federal District Court in Portland says police have used tear gas, pepper spray, shot rubber bullets and thrown flash bangs directly at both journalists and legal observers. The filings also say police have arrested journalists and legal observers. The complaint lists six primary plaintiffs—two ACLU observers and four journalists—and includes others similarly situated. Matt Borden, an attorney and partner at Braunhagey & Borden serving as co-counsel with the ACLU, said the lawsuit is intended to try to stop the police from attacking and assaulting legal observers and reporters in the future. “The whole idea of the First Amendment is it’s a check on government power,” said Borden. Borden said they are asking for damages for those injured by the conduct. He said they also plan to file for a temporary restraining order to prevent police...
    CHILLICOTHE, Ohio (AP) — County jail officials in Ohio ignored the suicidal threats of a man jailed on a probation violation and took no apparent steps to prevent him from killing himself, an attorney representing the man's mother said on Friday. The body of Scott Coldren, 20, was found early Feb. 8 in a cell at the Ross County Jail in Chillicothe. A coroner's report said Coldren died the previous day, attorney M. Shawn Diggs said Friday. The lawsuit was filed Wednesday in federal court in Columbus. Coldren was jailed Feb. 6 for violating probation for a misdemeanor drug paraphernalia conviction. According to Diggs, Coldren called his mother from the office of his probation officer and told her he would kill himself if jailed. Diggs said he has learned from other inmates that Coldren was put into a cell by himself away from corrections officers, pounded his head on a window and was incoherent. It is likely Coldren was detoxing from methamphetamine at the time, Diggs said. It is not clear whether Coldren received a mental health screening at the...
    TEMPE, Ariz. (AP) — A Phoenix suburb has reached a $2 million settlement with the family of a 14-year-old Hispanic boy who was fatally shot in the back by a police officer as the youth ran away while holding a non-lethal pellet gun. The Tempe City Council on Thursday approved the settlement in Officer Joseph Jaen's shooting of Antonio Arce. The shooting occurred January 2019 in an alley after the officer responded to a 911 call about a possible vehicle burglary. Tempe Mayor Mark Mitchell on Thursday offered condolences to the youth’s family. “We know that the Arce family was left with the devastation of losing a son and a family member,” Mitchell said. “We understand this settlement from the city does not compensate your loss of Antonio, but we’re settling this with the Arce family because the city recognizes and acknowledges that Officer Jaen was outside police department policy and procedure and that his actions were wrong. We wish the Arce family peace as they continue to grieve.” The teen's family in February filed a federal civil-rights lawsuit seeking...
    About a dozen businesses and residents located in and around Seattle’s autonomous protest zone sued the city Wednesday — arguing their constitutional rights to property are being violated. The class-action suit claims the group have had their rights “overrun by the city of Seattle’s unprecedented decision to abandon and close off an entire city neighborhood.” The so-called Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone, which sprouted up on June 8, has been “unchecked by police, unserved by fire and emergency health services, and inaccessible to the public at large,” the lawsuit said. While the plaintiffs would like to restore normalcy to the area, they stressed in the suit that the legal action was not meant to undermine the protest’s anti-police brutality and Black Lives Matter messaging. The group said in the suit that on occasions they have been threatened by protesters for photographing them or cleaning graffiti from their property. One of the businesses included the suit — auto shop Car Tender — said a protester broke into his shop on June 14, started a fire and attacked his son with a...
    HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — A federal judge has dismissed a sexual discrimination lawsuit against the University of Saint Joseph that accused Hall of Fame men’s basketball coach Jim Calhoun of harassment. Jaclyn Piscitelli sued the Catholic school last October, alleging she was fired as an assistant athletic director after complaining about the conduct of men in the athletic department, including Calhoun. The coach, now 78, came out of retirement to coach and build a men’s program at the former all-women’s school when it went co-ed in 2018. Among other things, Piscitelli alleges the former UConn coach once called her “hot” and on another occasion forced her to clean up coffee grounds he spilled. Piscitelli also alleges that she was belittled by other male members of the athletic department who received preferential treatment and would “frequently leave work to play golf with Calhoun during the workday.” U.S. District Court Judge Kari Dooley did not rule on the veracity of those allegations, but found they were improperly brought under Title IX, the federal law that guarantees women equal access to...
    Hollywood mogul Jeffrey Katzenberg is resorting to unusual tactics to fend off a lawsuit against his struggling video startup Quibi, The Post has learned. Despite publicly blasting patent infringement claims by video company Eko as meritless, Quibi has quietly hired private investigators to dig up dirt on the rival — including its founder Yoni Bloch and its billionaire backer Paul Singer, who’s bankrolling the Quibi lawsuit, sources said. The Post has spoken with five ex-Eko employees who have fielded calls from Quibi’s private eyes in recent weeks. They say the investigators didn’t ask about the technology issues in the lawsuit and focused instead on Bloch’s management style, Eko’s work culture and internal disputes that might be brewing beneath the surface. A techie who worked at Eko eight years ago said he was asked “if there was any shouting in the office” or if he noticed if Eko was in “financial trouble.” “I wasn’t aware of financial problems … and the environment was great,” said this person, who asked not to be identified. “They asked if I was aware who invested...
    INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — The mother of a black man who was killed by an Indianapolis police officer filed a federal wrongful death lawsuit Tuesday against the city, its police department and four officers, including the one who fired the fatal shots. The lawsuit alleges the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department failed to adequately train, screen and supervise officers to prevent them from engaging in excessive or deadly force, including Dejoure Mercer, the black police officer who shot and killed Dreasjon “Sean” Reed on May 6 during a foot chase. The complaint says Mercer’s “use of excessive and deadly force resulted in the unlawful shooting death” of Reed, 21, and alleges his constitutional right to due process was violated. It seeks unspecified damages. Reed’s mother, Demetree Wynn, watched with her attorneys and relatives as white doves were released during a news conference Tuesday outside the federal courthouse in Indianapolis to mark what would have been Reed’s 22nd birthday. “I can’t stand with him because he was taken away from me. Now he’s flying away and I can’t bring him back,” she said...
    Thomas Valva The mother of Thomas Valva filed a $200 million federal lawsuit Tuesday, claiming Long Island courts, school officials, and social service agencies failed to protect the boy from his abusive ex-NYPD cop dad before the youngster froze to death in January. Justyna Zubko-Valva claims in court papers that her autistic 8-year-old son was subjected to years of “completely preventable” abuse at the hands of his cop dad, Michael Valva, and his girlfriend, Anglea Pollina — while officials continually looked the other way, her lawyers said in a release. “Ms. Zubko-Valva had provided evidence to the court, CPS, the police and the children’s (Family Court) attorneys several times that showed the severe physical, mental, and sexual abuse of her children by Valva and Pollina,” the release said. “Rather than taking action to protect the children and stop their abuse by their father and his fiancee, and report the multiple complaints of abuse that had been made, as required under New York State Social Services Law, defendants hid the truth about the children’s health and fabricated false, misleading and...
    They don’t see the green. Caddies got clubbed on wages at Southampton’s swanky National Links of America, a course favorite of Michael Bloomberg, Michael Jordan and Wall Street billionaires, according to a federal lawsuit they filed in Brooklyn. Once dubbed “America’s snootiest” golf club, the National took an eight-iron to the earnings of its attendants, paying only for their time carting clubs, though some worked as many as 70 hours per week laundering towels and scrubbing toilets, the class-action suit claims. Lead plaintiff in gthe caddy smack case, Andrew Rodriguez, carried clubs for former Mayor Bloomberg, President George W. Bush and Pink Floyd’s Roger Waters from 2003 to October 2019, the suit says. And though the bold-faced names were “nice to him and tipped him well” — Waters even kicked in concert tickets — the National stiffed him for the many hours he worked behind the scenes, his lawyer Saul Zabell told The Post. “Andrew was cheated out of hundreds of thousands of dollars by this club for rich people,” he said. “That’s why it’s important that he brings this claim...
    Roads? Where we're going, we don't need roads. A lifelong "Back to the Future" fan has fulfilled a dream — by inventing the world's first flying hoverboard, British news agency South West News Service reports. Sam Rogers, from Salisbury, Wiltshire, said he's always been a fan of the movies, but was able to achieve his dream of becoming a real-life Mary McFly after working on a prototype $430,000 (£340,000) jet suit. A Back to the Future fan has recreated an iconic cinematic moment alongside a DeLorean time machine -- after designing the world's first flying overboard. (Credit: SWNS) 'IRON MAN' SETS NEW JET SUIT SPEED WORLD RECORD "I never thought I would even sit in a DeLorean, let alone capture something this cinematic -- bringing a hoverboard probably as close as it has ever been to actually hovering," Rogers, 24, said of recreating the iconic cinematic movement from "Back to the Future Part II." Rogers, who is a design lead and test pilot for British aeronautical innovation companies Gravity Industries and AdditiveX, said he's been a fan of the movies since he...
    Attorney Harmeet Dhillon of the Center for American Liberty told "The Ingraham Angle" Thursday that she had filed the first-ever lawsuit against the far-left group Antifa to protect journalists and other Americans "who are threatened by these criminals." Dhillon filed the lawsuit on behalf of journalist Andy Ngo after he was repeatedly attacked in 2019 while covering the violence incited by the group in Portland, Ore. On one occasion, the lawsuit claims, Ngo was beaten by a mob that continued to harass him as he attempted to walk away. Dhillon told host Laura Ingraham that Ngo "continues to be stalked" and claimed the Portland authorities "continue to do nothing" to protect his safety. JOURNALIST ATTACKED BY ANTIFA SPEAKS OUT ON GROUP'S EXTREMISM  "By the way, that includes the United States attorney who I spoke to at the beginning of the process," she said. "We waited several months and this is a job for law enforcement because ... law enforcement has the tools to go surveil and get warrants and all of that. "It should have been law enforcement doing this action, not me," Dhillon said, "but because they refuse to do that, we cannot let Andy continue to live under these threats." Dhillon...
    Google got slapped with a $5 billion proposed class action lawsuit this week, with plaintiffs accusing the search giant of illegally invading the privacy of millions of users by tracking their internet use even when they browsed in “incognito” mode. The complaint, filed in federal court in San Jose, Calif., argues that Google learned the “most intimate and potentially embarrassing things” about users’ searches by gathering data through Google Analytics, Google Ad Manager and other apps and web plug-ins. Google “cannot continue to engage in the covert and unauthorized data collection from virtually every American with a computer or phone,” the complaint said. Google has said that it will defend itself against the claims, with a spokesperson saying that the browser “clearly states” that websites “might be able to collect information about your browsing activity” when a new Incognito tab is opened. The complaint said the proposed class likely includes “millions” of Google users who since June 1, 2016 browsed the internet in “incognito” mode. It seeks at least $5,000 of damages per user for violations of federal wiretapping and...
    Distraught public housing residents plan to sue the New York City Housing Authority after 1241 tenants died of COVID-19 and thousands more were sickened because the buildings were not properly sanitized, their lawyer said Friday. “These are the people who need to be protected the most and when you talk about the government’s function to protect the most vulnerable, obviously here that wasn’t done,” said attorney Robert Vilensky, who is currently representing 20 claimants who hope to file a class action suit against the city and the New York Housing Authority. The tenants are seeking $5 billion in compensation, including for medical conditions and complications, medical expenses, loss of earnings and funeral expenses for those who died. “The number is just to send a message to the city,” said Vilensky, after filing a notice of claim this week. “Why is it that NYCHA buildings have a significantly higher percentage of people who develop COVID and die than the rest of the city.” The health department said over 6000 NYCHA tenants have been infected with the virus. NYCHA employees allowed the...
