Argument analysis: Justices weigh mootness after change in government policy in cases seeking nominal damages

The Supreme Court heard oral argument on Tuesday in the case of a Georgia student who was stopped from handing out religious literature and speaking about his faith on the campus of his public college. The student, Chike Uzuegbunam, argued that the college’s policies violated the First Amendment, but shortly after the lawsuit was filed the college changed its policies to allow students to generally speak anywhere on campus without a permit. The question before the court on Tuesday in Uzuegbunam ...

Case preview: Justices to consider effect of change in government policy on cases seeking symbolic damages

The Supreme Court will hear oral argument on Tuesday in a case questioning whether a lawsuit seeking only symbolic damages can go forward after the government changes the unconstitutional policy being challenged, or whether the case is instead moot – that is, no longer a live controversy. The issue comes to the justices in Uzuegbunam v. Preczewski, a dispute over religious speech on the grounds of a Georgia college, but the court’s ruling could have implications well beyond academia. Backgrou...

In First, Black Men Lead Both California Public Safety Panels

SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP/CBS13) — The first African American lawmakers to lead the California Legislature’s public safety committees at the same time promised Tuesday to bring “radical change” to improve the treatment of Black and Latino people by law enforcement. But the two also immediately acknowledged that their goals don’t differ much from previous legislative attempts and may not bear fruit for another generation. Sen. Steve Bradford and Assemblyman Reggie Jones-Sawyer both spoke in sometime...

Renters receive eviction notices as LA County, state bans are set to expire

Corrina Salazar, 63, came home from her job as a caregiver, in an Alzheimer’s and dementia care facility, one day earlier this month to find a notice taped to her Long Beach apartment door. She thought maybe the new owners, who had recently bought the building, were raising the rent. Instead, the notice informed her that she had to move by Feb. 1. It was the same notice every other tenant in the 14-unit complex, 1232 E. Second St., received that day. And it was just a glimpse of what lawmakers a...

Private property’s harvest

I’m thankful. Yes, we’ve got the pandemic, lockdowns, a worsening deficit, etc. But we still live in a relatively free country at the most prosperous time in human history. The pandemic showed that when people are faced with crises, we adjust. Restaurants switched to takeout and outdoor dining. Grocery stores began curbside pickup. Companies mass-produced masks, hand sanitizer, ventilators and, now, vaccines. I hide from COVID-19 by staying home; yet, thanks to new services such as Zoom, I can r...
