Enlarge (credit: AFP/Stringer) A few months ago we reported that the " devil was in the details " about how Sony Playstation 3 owners could go about getting either $9 or $55 from Sony as part of a class-action settlement over a 2010 software update that removed the ability to run Linux on the popular gaming consoles. The California judge presiding over the litigation is now killing the proposed settlement amid concerns the lawyers representing the class haven't explained why they should get $2.25 million for their legal services, especially considering that the deal has made it burdensome on gamers to get their cash. Of the gamers who tried to get their $55 refund, 25 percent have been rejected. "The Court has concerns, based upon how the notice and claims process preceded, the results it produced, and the disproportionality of the attorneysfees versus the class recovery, that the settlement agreement is not fair, reasonable, and adequate," US District Judge Yvonne Gonzalez Rogers ruled , (PDF) a decision that reversed her earlier order that tentatively backed the pact.

” “This issue is deeply personal to me,” repeated Ibrahim. “I want you to know that this city is here to protect you, with every tool at our disposal, including holding violators of the New York City human rights law accountable and protecting those most vulnerable amongst us.” In addition to advocates and grassroots organizers, city and state representatives spoke at the podium, promising solidarity to victimized New Yorkers. Stating “this city can’t live and function without immigrants,” city comptroller Scott Stringer estimated the annual spending power of immigrants to be in the billions. “To my Muslim brothers and sisters, as a Jewish American, I want to see a united world and the way to do that is dump Trump and take to the streets.” Councilwoman Helen Rosenthal called the banning of refugees “a stunning betrayal of our moral responsibility.

We are a city made greater by the blood, sweat and tears of immigrants and refugees, and we will not close our borders, James told the crowd. We will not close our shores. The reason is why New York City is great is because we are an immigrant town and a sanctuary city. And any threat to any group, to African Americans, to Jews, to Muslims ― it doesnt matter ― any threat to any group is a threat to all of us, she added. Scott Stringer, New York Citys comptroller, said that as a Jewish American, I stand with the Muslim community, because today and every day in New York City, we are one people. I stand together with you, because when they come for you, they come for me, and when they come for me, they have come for you! Im very proud to represent 150 different nations that speak 150 different languages, not just as a city elected official, he added.

The $84.67 billion budget for next fiscal year, which de Blasio unveiled on Tuesday with no Trump-specific adjustments, relies on more than $7 billion in federal aid, much of it for anti-poverty programs and education targeted toward the city’s neediest residents. City Comptroller Scott Stringer, who said his office is still reviewing the order, said Wednesday that $165 million in federal aid was immediately at risk: $156 million in Urban Area Security Initiative grants, $6 million in criminal alien assistance grants and $3 million in general assistance grants from the Justice Department. I'm not going to minimize the danger for a moment, de Blasio said. But when we look at this executive order, we think there's lots of ways to stand and fight, he said. While “sanctuary city” is not a technical designation, it is a term used to describe as many as 300 communities nationwide that are home to an estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants.

We are not going to create a religious registry for our Muslim brothers and sisters. We will not divide people. And no matter what happens in Washington D.C., we will never go back to the era of stop-and-frisk.” Minutes after de Blasio left the event, City Comptroller Scott Stringer, who is considering challenging de Blasio in this year's primary, told the crowd that it’s difficult to fight Trump when New York City has so many problems. “The way you beat Trump is you solve the homeless crisis in this city,’ Stringer said, evoking cheers from the audience. “The way you beat Trump is to give 1,150 vacant properties in this town back to the people, not the developers. You see if you take the 30 percent of the people who are homeless and working and give them a real affordable housing unit, a real low-income affordable housing unit, that’s how you reduce the homeless in this city.

It's not everyday that a city official sounds the alarm by claiming a city plan could "inadvertently displace tens of thousands" of New Yorkers from one neighborhood alone. That's what a report from City Comptroller Scott Stringer spelled out last month, undermining the promises of Mayor Bill de Blasio, who insists his 'affordable' housing plan will help protect from, not fuel, gentrification. This sort of displacement, driven by developers and embraced by the mayor, should be fought at every turn. However, when longtime neighborhood groups back city hall and development firms are asked to capture the cultural spirit of the city, eyebrows are raised. So who's in favor of the mayor's plan, which includes the rezoning of key neighborhoods like East New York (the subject of Stringer's report), East Harlem and some areas of the Bronx? In El Barrio (East Harlem), there have been some contentious debates around rezoning.

) Divisional-Round Predictions Seattle Seahawks at Atlanta Falcons The matchups just fall in the Atlanta Falcons' favor. The Seattle Seahawks offensive line will have trouble with edge-rusher Vic Beasley. The secondary, without safety Earl Thomas, will have its hands full with quarterback Matt Ryan and wide receiver Julio Jones . And Seattle wasn't nearly as good on the road (3-4-1) as it was at home (7-1) during the regular season. All signs point to a comfortable Falcons win. Pick: Atlanta 30, Seattle 20 Houston Texans at New England Patriots There isn't a possible path to victory for the Houston Texans. They can't score consistently, and on Saturday, they are tasked with facing the league's best scoring defenseon the road, no less. Their defense is solid, but they let up 27 points the last time these two teams played, and that was with third-stringer Jacoby Brissett at QB for the Pats.
