CALIFORNIA DA’S TOO LATE IN INMATE RELEASE LAWSUIT

Judge won’t stop California’s new rules for good conduct releases for 76,000 inmates

Inmates in the main exercise yard at Folsom State prison in Folsom in 2017. A Sacramento judge has rejected a request to stop the state’s new credit system for good behavior in state prisons, but said the district attorneys who asked for the injunction have a “likelihood” of winning their case.

A judge in Sacramento has refused to halt the state prison system’s use of new good-time credit policies designed to speed up the release of more than 76,000 inmates, ruling that 44 California district attorneys could have sued to stop the new rules before they took effect May 1.

In an order issued late Tuesday, Sacramento Superior Court Judge Shama Mesiwala rejected a request for a preliminary injunction that would have forced the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation to return to its old good conduct credit rules.

The judge issued a tentative ruling denying the injunction last week, but wrote then that there is a “likelihood” the prosecutors ultimately will prevail in their lawsuit.

IT APPEARS THE STATE DA’S WERE NOT OVERLY CONCERNED ABOUT THE ISSUE. I GUESS THEY HAD TO TRY TO SAVE A FEW VOTES WITH THIS FEEBLE LAWSUIT THAT WAS MONTHS LATE.

GUN GROUP TO SUE SAN JOSE OVER NEW REQUIREMENTS

 

Gun rights group threatens to sue San Jose over ‘unconstitutional’ firearm fees, insurance

The threat comes two weeks after the city made plans to enact a new gun control measure

Even though San Jose has not yet released details of its proposed ordinance requiring legal firearm owners to pay for the cost of gun violence, a Second Amendment advocacy organization is already launching a campaign to stop it from taking effect.

The National Foundation for Gun Rights on Wednesday sent a cease-and-desist letter to San Jose Mayor Sam Liccardo and the city’s ten city councilmembers formally threatening to sue them if they go through with enacting the legislation.

“Please be advised that should you pass the proposed ordinance and blatantly violate the constitutional rights of the residents of San Jose, my clients have authorized our firm to file a lawsuit against the City to protect the constitutional rights of their members,” San Francisco-based attorneys Attorneys David A. Warrington and Harmeet K. Dhillon, who are representing the Foundation, wrote.

They go on to argue that the proposed ordinance is unconstitutional because it imposes a “discriminatory tax that singles out citizens exercising their constitutional rights” and “seeks to punish citizens of your city who have committed no crime or offense.”

TEXAS DEMOCRATS REFUSE TO DO THEIR JOB GOP THREATENS ARREST


Texas House Republicans Vote to Track Down Absent Democrats, Potentially Arrest Them

Texas House Republicans on Tuesday voted to track down and possibly arrest absent Democratic lawmakers who fled the state to avoid voting on an election bill.

House Speaker Dade Phelan, in a statement from the Texas Capitol floor, said that “members, the sergeant-at-arms and the officers appointed by him are directed to send for all absentees whose attendance is not excused for the purpose of securing and maintaining their attendance—under warrant of arrest, if necessary.”

“Any member who wishes to leave the hall must have the written permission of the Speaker of the House,” he added.

But state Rep. Jim Murphy, a Houston Republican who chairs the House GOP Caucus, said Texas Republicans cannot force the Democrats to return to the state.

DAWG SAYS: THIS IS AN IDOL THREAT BY THE GOP FOR THE MEDIA, AND POLITICS AT IS WORST ON BOTH SIDES.

GO DO YOUR JOB ALL OF YOU. BETTER YET HOW BOUT WE THROW ALL OF THEM IN JAIL.

NO WHOPPERS IN LINCOLN NEBRASKA

 

Burger King workers write ‘we all quit’ on sign, walk out of Nebraska restaurant

Employees and a general manager at a Nebraska Burger King quit amid deteriorating work conditions and used the restaurant’s sign to let customers know.

“We all quit,” the sign at the Lincoln Burger King read. “Sorry for the inconvenience.”

Rachael Flores, who had served as general manager since January, had put in her two weeks notice and eight other employees also did so shortly before deciding to post the message on the sign, KLKN reported.

“They have gone through so many district managers since I’ve been GM,” Flores said. “No one has come to the store to help me out. They’re so in and out.”

Flores said the restaurant is short staffed and she would end up working 50 to 60 hours a week. She said at one point they did not have working air conditioning in the kitchen, where temperatures reached 90 degrees. Flores had to go to the hospital after becoming dehydrated.

JUDGE DELAYS LOAN FORGIVNESS LOANS FOR BLACK ONLY FARMERS


Judge halts loan forgiveness program aimed at Black farmers

A federal judge in Florida cited racial discrimination in a ruling that halted the loan forgiveness program aimed at Black farmers that was part of the Biden administration’s COVID-19 relief package that forgave debts related to agriculture.

U.S. District Judge Marcia Morales said in her ruling that Congress should “do away with governmentally imposed discrimination based on race,” Reported in the Washington post.

Howard said, “It appears that in adopting Section 1005’s strict race-based debt relief remedy Congress moved with great speed to address the history of discrimination, but did not move with great care.”

The lawsuit was started by Scott Wynn, a White farmer who objected to the loan program being based on race.
