Two U.S. That’s when she says a Border Patrol agent took interest in them and asked for Suda’s ID. citizens in a small Montana town town said they were questioned and detained by a Border Patrol agent for up to 40 minutes because they were heard speaking Spanish. For Suda, who said she’ll be taking legal action, the worst part is how her 7-year-old daughter reacted. Former HUD Secretary Julian Castro tweeted, “Way to go, Border Patrol agent. Terrible judgment,” in response to the incident. Ana Suda, 37, told the Washington Post she and friend Mimi Hernandez, both Mexican-Americans, ran out to a gas station convenience store for milk and eggs just after midnight in Havre, Montana, Wednesday and started conversing in Spanish while waiting to pay. You be proud. “When she saw the video, she was like, ‘Mom, we can’t speak Spanish anymore?’ I said, ‘No. A Customs and Border Protection representative told the Post the agency is looking into the incident and that “although most Border Patrol work is conducted in the immediate border area, agents have broad law enforcement authorities and are not limited to a specific geography within the United States.” Havre is 35 miles or so south of the US-Canadian border.

Speaking outside a church not far from Santa Fe High School on Sunday, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said his hope was that the 17-year-old accused of killing 10 people there gets “swift Texas justice.”
Dimitrios Pagourtzis is suspected of being the shooter at Sante Fe High School in Texas on May 18, 2018. Alabama that states cannot give juvenile offenders life without parole as a mandatory sentence. He clarified that, under this law, the inmate has the right to apply for parole after 40 years but is still unlikely to actually be granted an early release. “The way it works is there’s only one possibility, if he is found guilty,” Robert Barfield, attorney for the suspect, told CNN on Sunday. Pagourtzis confessed that he acted alone in the shooting, according to a probable cause affidavit. Prior to the Roper ruling, Texas led the nation in executing people who committed capital crimes as juveniles, according to the Death Penalty Information Center. Across the United States, 22 people who were juvenile offenders were executed between the reinstatement of the death penalty in 1976 and the Roper ruling in 2005. “That’s what the discovery process is for, to see if there is anything we can do for our client in that aspect,” Barfield said. By a 5-4 vote, the court ruled that the death penalty for perpetrators under the age of 18 constituted “cruel and unusual punishment” and so violated the 8th amendment of the Constitution. 29.378013

Rulings by the US Supreme Court fit a pattern in the past few decades of the justices limiting punishments for those who committed crimes when they were younger than 18. “It’s life in prison with the possibility of parole because of his age.”
Suspect Dimitrios Pagourtzis, 17, is being held on charges of capital murder and aggravated assault on a public servant. The Santa Fe student allegedly used a shotgun and a revolver to kill eight students and two teachers and injure 13 others. Thirteen of those executed were in Texas, with the most recent execution in 2002. In fact, the harshest punishment the suspect can receive is life with the possibility of parole. Under Texas law, the maximum sentence for capital murder for those under 18 is a life sentence that allows for the prisoner to apply for parole after 40 years, according to Robert Dunham of the Death Penalty Information Center. Given Pagourtzis’ alleged confession and the limits of any future sentence, Barfield said it was too early to discuss the legal strategy for his client going forward.

The unique pact was announced on Monday. And Netflix is giving the Obamas a valuable platform to stay visible in their post-White House years. These types of exclusive production partnerships are common in Hollywood — in fact, Netflix has been attracting a bevy of A-listers, including Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy. The first content from the Obamas will appear in 2019 at the earliest, according to a person involved in the deal. The Obamas now need to hire a team of producers. The Obamas said Monday that they want to harness “the power of storytelling” to promote common values. In other cases they will stay behind the scenes as producers. The talks with Netflix were first reported back in March. 12, 2018. In one, “Mr. But the company’s announcement of the deal said “the Obamas will produce a diverse mix of content, including the potential for scripted series, unscripted series, docu-series, documentaries and features.”

In the final days of the Obama administration, it was reported that Obama was interested in pursuing digital media ventures after he left office. Netflix did not specify a timeline. Financial terms were not disclosed. Jen Psaki, the White House communications director at the time, told CNN that “he is very interested in how people consume information and the changing trends,” citing online and mobile news consumption. “We hope to cultivate and curate the talented, inspiring, creative voices who are able to promote greater empathy and understanding between peoples, and help them share their stories with the entire world,” Barack Obama said in a statement. president.

As the dissent recognizes, the legislative policy embodied in the (National Labor Relations Act) is aimed at ‘safeguard[ing], first and foremost, workers’ rights to join unions and to engage in collective bargaining,” he wrote. They say the NLRA does not contain a congressional command precluding enforcement of the waivers. One, the National Labor Relations Act (NLRA), gives employees the right to self organization to “engage in concerted activities for the purpose of mutual aid or protection” the other, the 1925 Federal Arbitration Act (FAA) allows employers to “settle by arbitration.”
Lawyers for employers, who have long backed arbitration as a means of resolving disputes, argued that class action waivers are permissible under the 1925 law. Workers don’t like the waivers because it’s much more expensive — and at times intimidating — to bring individual claims. Justice Stephen Breyer worried that if the employers were to prevail they would be “overturning labor law that goes back to, for FDR at least, the entire heart of the New Deal.”
At one point, Chief Justice John Roberts asked Ortiz, a lawyer for the workers, whether a decision in his favor would “invalidate agreements covering 25 million employees”
Ortiz said it would. “Congress has instructed that arbitration agreements like those before us must be enforced as written,” he said. In a victory for employers and the Trump administration, the Supreme Court on Monday said that employers could block employees from banding together as a class to fight legal disputes in employment arbitration agreements. Federal labor law does not countenance such isolation of employees,” she said. Lewis “egregiously wrong.”
“The court today holds enforceable these arm-twisted, take-it-or-leave-it contracts — including the provisions requiring employees to litigate wage and hours claims only one-by-one. In the majority opinion, Gorsuch maintained the “decision does nothing to override” what Congress has done. “Those rights stand every bit as strong today as they did yesterday.”
Gorusch, responding to Ginsburg’s claim that the court’s decision would resurrect so-called “yellow dog” contracts which barred an employee from joining a union, said that “like most apocalyptic warnings, this one proves a false alarm.”
The case was the biggest business case of the term, and represented a clash between employers who prefer to handle disputes through arbitration against employees who want to be able to band together to bring their challenges and not be required to sign class action bans. “Not only is he endorsing the conservative justices’ controversial approach to arbitration clauses, but he’s taking it an important step further by extending that reasoning to employment agreements, as well.”
Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg took the rare step of reading her dissent from the bench, calling the majority opinion in Epic Systems Corp. Neal Katyal, a lawyer for Epic, argued in court papers,” like other contracts, employment contracts may require that arbitration be conducted on an individual basis.” Lawyers for the employees, on the other hand, said the NLRA precludes such waivers. The employee, Jacob Lewis, sought to sue Epic in federal court on behalf of a group of employees who claimed the company had denied them overtime pay. At oral arguments, the justices seemed closely divided along ideological lines. The employees have the support of the National Labor Relations Board, an independent federal agency that protects the rights of private sector employees to join together to improve working conditions. 38.907192

Justice Neil Gorsuch delivered the opinion for the 5-4 majority, his first major opinion since joining the court last spring and a demonstration of how the Senate Republicans’ move to keep liberal nominee Merrick Garland from being confirmed in 2016 has helped cement a conservative court. The Trump administration supported the employers in the case, a switch from the Obama administration’s position. Epic sought to dismiss the complaint arguing that Lewis had waived his right to pursue joint legal claims. Judge Neil Gorsuch testifies during the third day of his Supreme Court confirmation hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee in the Hart Senate Office Building on Capitol Hill, March 22, 2017 in Washington. v. One of the three consolidated cases before the court concerned a grievance claim brought by an employee of a healthcare software company called Epic Systems Corporation. It also pitted two federal laws against each other. Impact of ruling
“Today’s ruling is a major blow for the rights of employees, who almost never have enough of an interest, by themselves, to take the time and resources to litigate claims against their employers — especially claims concerning underpayment of wages,” Vladeck said. The court has approved some collective action bans in consumer contracts, and employers hoped for the same fate when it comes to employer contracts.
