  • RBG's Coauthored Book To Be Released

    Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg left behind a final project, which will now be released posthumously. Prior to her death last month, Ginsburg worked with Amanda Tyler, one of her former clerks and a current law professor at University of California, Berkeley, on composing new material and collecting previously unreleased works. This compilation will be released as a new book, entitled Justice, Justice Thou Shalt Pursue: A Life's Work Fighting for a More Perfect Union.

  • Court To Hear Cosby's Appeal

    Actor, comedian, and incarcerated sex felon Bill Cosby is to have another day in court. Newser reports the Pennsylvania Supreme Court will hear Bill Cosby's appeal of his felony sexual assault conviction on December 1, 2020. Once known as 'America's Dad,' the 83-year-old is serving a three- to 10-year prison term. While a lower appeals court had upheld his conviction, the state's high court agreed this year to review two key issues in the case. One involves the trial judge's decision to let prosecutors call five other accusers to testify about long-ago encounters with Cosby at his 2018 trial. Also at issue is whether the jury should have heard evidence that Cosby had given quaaludes to women in the past.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
