Even if the House of Lords decided to throw a woby, you could call an election reand replace them. So you think it is possible in the Lords do in some way try to block this or delay it, that could provoke an election, too? I do, absolutely.

But this has not eased the fears of DACA beneficiaries like Dass. Anand Ahuja, a lawyer and co-founder of Indian-Americans for Trump, says DACA beneficiaries should not expect to escape the consequences of their parentsactions. “It’s the fruit of a poisonous tree,” Ahuja told VOA. “If you can inherit your parentsassets, you should inherit your parentsliabilities also.” Only by setting a strong precedent, he argues, can the government deter others from illegally entering the country. Because of the fear many students face, a number of New York City-based universities have joined the mayor’s sanctuary efforts. In the event DACA is either “terminated or substantially curtailed,” wrote Columbia University Provost John Coatsworth, “the university pledges to expand the financial aid and other support we make available to undocumented students.

California Democrats have already hired Holder as a sort of warrior-lawyer, anticipating years of legal battles with Trump’s Washington. On the other end of the spectrum is Montana Governor Steve Bullock, a Democrat who won reelection by 4 percentage points on the same day Trump won his state by more than 20, running on a record of Medicaid expansion, campaign finance reform, equal pay and expanding public education—on top of having issued more vetoes than any Montana governor in history. Instead of raging against Trump and the Republicans in Congress, Bullock wants to ignore them. “We as Democrats need to recognize that there’s no such thing as a national issue,” he says. All this positioning is building up to a heady 2017 and 2018, with governorsraces in nine swingy states where a Republican has been in charge the past eight years. Add in likely pickups in blue New Jersey this year and potentially Illinois, Maryland and Massachusetts next year, and Democrats could end up with a slew of new governors.

Next year will mark 56 years, the timeframe spelled out in the US Copyright Act, since the Beatles released their first single, "Love Me Do," in 1962. The lawsuit said that the CEO of Sony ATV encountered McCartney's lawyer at a concert shortly before the Duran Duran decision and hinted that the publisher would fight harder in light of the British case. The lawsuit said that McCartney had asked Sony ATV to make clear that it recognized the former Beatle's notices that he planned to terminate publishing contracts under the US law. "Defendants have refused to provide such confirmation," the lawsuit said, voicing worry that Sony ATV would instead declare McCartney -- who wrote much of the Beatles catalog with the late John Lennon -- to be in breach of contract. The case could have wide effects on the future of payments in the music industry. Publishers collect and distribute royalties to songwriters -- an especially lucrative area for classic tunes.

" He revealed an option for a slogan for his 2020 re-election campaign to the Washington Post. "Are you ready?” he told the Post. “‘Keep America Great,’ exclamation point.” Trump then interrupted the interview to ask his lawyer to apply for a trademark for the phrase. “I never thought I’d be giving [you] my expression for four years [from now],” the President-elect said when he returned to the interview. “But I am so confident that we are going to be, it is going to be so amazing. It’s the only reason I give it to you. If I was, like, ambiguous about it, if I wasnt sure about what is going to happen — the country is going to be great.””* Read more here: http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/trump-military-parades Hosts: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola Cast: Cenk Uygur, John Iadarola *** The Largest Online News Show in the World.

Syariah judge Mohd Hairuddin Ab Rahim said the fine was meted out after taking into account mitigation from both sides. "The Syariah court took into account the age, health, his position as an MP for Shah Alam along with his contributions to society. "While the court took into account that this was his first offence, the sentence should serve as a deterrent for others not to commit the offence in future," he said in his judgment. Meanwhile, Khalid told reporters that he has instructed his counsel Dr Dzulqarnain Lokman to file an appeal to reduce the fine at the Syariah High Court. "In addition, I have instructed my lawyer Hanipa Maidin to appeal against the constitutionality of the offence at the Federal Court," he told reporters when met at outside the court complex, here, yesterday. Expected to face an uphill battle regarding the constitutional challenge, Khalid said his lawyer will be presenting his case from a different angle.

A ruling on whether the men had a right to sue rests on court precedents involving constitutional protections against illegal search and seizure. But Justice Stephen Breyer got to the hub of the broader case: whether the atmosphere at the time justified such a broad reaction. "I can understand after a bomb attack and 3,000 people are killed," Breyer said. "I can understand that the first reaction of the law enforcement authorities is pick up anybody you might think is connected, and we'll worry about the rest of it later." "Now, eight months? ... The answer is pick up anybody who might have a connection, and then just keep them there?" he asked. The current Barack Obama administration came in on the side of Ashcroft, Mueller and the others being sued. "This is something that was done as the officials are trying to sort through how to respond to the very difficult situation," said Justice Department Lawyer Ian Gershengorn.

Kruse: He couldnt let go of his company, obviously. I’m wondering if he thinks Don Jr. and Eric are going to be able to run the company without him. And will he even expect them to, or is he still going to be sort of the president of the Trump Organization, in essence? Blair: Totally. What was in those manila folders ? What was in the stack of papers that was flourished at the press conference? O’Brien: That reminded me of after, I think, he won the South Carolina primary, and at this press conference he had a table stacked high with Trump steaks and Trump water and other Trump goodies from some businesses that already were defunct. Blair: Yeah, he’s big on props, and that was a pretty good prop and his lawyer talked with a bunch of legalese and so, “Okay, that’s out of the way.” It’s not out of the way at all. Not in the slightest and he doesnt exactly—and the idea that they’re not going to do any new deals internationally.

"We are dealing here with abuse of power [by the police]," former interior minister and lawyer Ryszard Kalisz told broadcaster TVN24. "The whole legal society is appalled." During the protest, police forcibly broke up an hours-long blockade of the parliament by demonstrators who backed a sit-in inside the plenary hall by opposition lawmakers. Television images showed back then some protesters shouting at ruling party lawmakers as they walked out of parliament. A spokesman for the Warsaw prosecutor's office, Michal Dziekanski, said police had a right to publish images of people whose identity had not been determined. "It is not the political aspect that is important for us, but stories connected with using violence against other people," Dziekanski said. He said that one person whose image was published had contacted the police and been charged with verbal abuse, which is a crime in Poland.

Trump's lawyer said any misstatements about Trump University amounted to mere puffery. Trump also repeatedly noted that many attendees were satisfied with the programs. However, in November—after Trump's upset victory over Hillary Clinton—the real estate mogul agreed to head off a looming civil trial by forking over enough money to pay back roughly half of the between $1,500 and $35,000 individual students paid for seminars or one-on-one mentorship programs. A Trump attorney did not immediately respond to a call seeking comment Wednesday. When the proposed deal was announced two months ago, Trump took to Twitter to explain his rationale for seeking to close out the suits. I settled the Trump University lawsuit for a small fraction of the potential award because as President I have to focus on our country, Trump, wrote then.

He also accused the agency of overstepping its power, saying it had bootstrapped its own powers and tools through rulemaking that had triggered protracted litigation and that he would rely on the states rather than federal officials to be our nation’s frontline environmental implementers and enforcers. Farmers, ranchers and small business owners have felt hopeless, subject to a never ending torrent of new regulations that only a lawyer can understand,” Pruitt's remarks said. “They fear the EPA, and that just shouldnt be the case. If confirmed, I will work tirelessly to ensure that the EPA acts lawfully, sensibly, and with those hardworking Americans ever in mind.” Carper: Pruitt's views are troubling Sen. Tom Carper, the top Democrat on the committee, indicated he is leaning against approving Pruitt, marking the second time the Delawarean has opposed a nominee for EPA administrator.
