    Several of the jurors who ruled against former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) in her civil case against The New York Times learned of a judge's decision to dismiss the case before handing down their verdict.  "These jurors reported that although they had been assiduously adhering to the Court’s instruction to avoid media coverage of the trial, they had involuntarily received “push notifications” on their smartphones that contained the bottomline of the ruling," a filing in U.S. District Court submitted on Wednesday read. "The jurors repeatedly assured the Court’s law clerk that these notifications had not affected them in any way or played any role whatever in their deliberations."  On Monday, Judge Jed Rakoff indicated he would dismiss the libel case, which stems from an editorial the Times published in 2011 incorrectly linking Palin to a mass shooting in an Arizona parking lot where then-Rep.

The FDA panel functions like a science court that will pick apart the data and debate — in public and live-streamed — whether the shot is safe and effective enough to be cleared for emergency use. The non-government experts specialize in vaccine development, infectious diseases and medical statistics. The FDA is expected to follow the committee’s advice, although it is not required to do so. The FDA’s decision comes as the coronavirus continues surging across much of the world, claiming more than 1.5 million...
    The 11th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld Friday a Florida law that requires felons to pay all fines and court fees before they can vote. A 6-4 ruling from the panel of 10 judges reverses a previous lower-court ruling that granted voting eligibility to Florida felons despite any remaining expenses, according to The Hill. (Related: Judge Rules Against Felons Paying Fines To Vote In Florida) “Florida withholds the franchise from any felon, regardless of wealth, who has failed to complete any term of his criminal sentence—financial or otherwise,” the majority wrote.
