Petitions of the week: Four petitions that test the limits on lawsuits against the government

This week we highlight cert petitions that ask the Supreme Court to consider cases and statutes about suing various government entities, ranging from two counties to a state governor to the United States itself. Three of the petitions involve women seeking redress from counties and the military for their role in creating conditions that allowed them to suffer sexual and physical assaults. Broadly speaking, sovereign immunity protects states from suit. However, in 1908’s Ex parte Young, the Supre...

Southern California House Democrats: Donald Trump must go

Southern California House Democrats joined their leadership Thursday, Jan. 7 in calling for President Donald Trump’s impeachment or removal from office via the 25th Amendment after his supporters, fresh off his call to march to the U.S. Capitol, stormed the building in a riot that left four people dead and a nation questioning its democratic future.

To object or not to object? Here’s where some local GOP House members stand on Electoral College vote

A day before perhaps the most consequential vote of their political careers, Republicans representing Southern California in the U.S. House of Representatives offered a variety of answers — or no answer at all — for why they will or won’t object to Electoral College results that deliver Democrat Joe Biden the presidency. As of Tuesday afternoon, two of Southern California’s six GOP House members — Mike Garcia of Santa Clarita and Jay Obernolte of Big Bear Lake — said they planned to contest some...

UCLA football remains coronavirus-free as it prepares for Colorado

UCLA football is coronavirus-free heading into game week against Colorado to open the conference-only schedule. The coronavirus delayed the start of the 2020 season for Pac-12 teams and the Bruins know that it can still have an impact on the season despite being days removed from the trip to Boulder. UCLA had a player test positive last week but it has since been reported as a false-positive. “Our medical staff does a really good job,” linebacker Bo Calvert said. “We’re getting tested every day ...

UCLA football coach Chip Kelly talks about the Bruins’ 4-2-5 defense

Through the first few days of UCLA football’s training camp in preparation for its season opener at Colorado on Nov. 7, much of the talk has centered around the Bruins’ 4-2-5 defense that new defensive backs coach Brian Norwood is helping employ after the Bruins’ defense had bottomed out, not even ranking in the top 100 the past two seasons. Norwood was brought over from Navy, and the Bruins also added defensive line coach Johnny Nansen (from USC) to join defensive coordinator Jerry Azzinaro. On...

Southern California Democrats vote via proxies under new House rules; Republicans sue

More than a dozen House members from Southern California took advantage this week of a new rule that allows them to vote on legislation remotely, through proxies, for the first time in history. The House of Representatives, in a party-line vote, this month approved the Democrat-backed temporary rule change so members could get back to work without causing a spike in coronavirus cases, as public health officials encourage Americans to avoid flying and to work from home if they can. The remote vot...

Legal and tech policy experts say Trump's executive order draft cracking down on social media companies is dead on arrival

President Donald Trump is set to sign an executive order seeking to crack down on social media companies after Twitter took the rare step this week of adding fact-checking labels to two of his tweets. A draft of the order obtained by Business Insider shows Trump is mainly attempting to empower federal regulators to re-interpret and amend Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act to make it more difficult for tech companies to moderate content on their platforms. It would direct the FCC and...

What is ballot harvesting and how is it affecting Southern California elections?

As housekeepers, maintenance workers and other staff spilled out of the Anaheim Hilton and Sheraton during a lunch break in February, some headed to the parking lot between the hotels, clutching their mail-in ballots for the upcoming March 3 primary. They were greeted by members of the Democratic Party of Orange County, who were hosting a “ballot party” focused on encouraging the workers to participate in the 2020 elections. Organizers gave speeches, answered questions and handed out party recom...

Avalanche Paths to Signing a Top Free Agent

The 2020 free agent pool lacks much scoring depth outside of a few players: LW Taylor Hall (Arizona Coyotes), RW Mike Hoffman (Florida Panthers), RW Evgenii Dadonov (Panthers), and RW Tyler Toffoli (Vancouver Canucks). The Colorado Avalanche have solid top-six forwards, but many of them missed significant time this season with injuries. The organization has many personnel decisions to make over the next several years, and should have the cap space to sign free agents if it so wishes. The Ava...

Avalanche Players Rave About Jared Bednar

What a difference three years makes. Turn back the calendar to the end of the 2016-17 season. To say things in Colorado were not good wouldn’t give justice to just how bad things were. The Avalanche suffered through a 60-loss season and a lot of drama. Most notably, the Matt Duchene situation was playing out. Talk about walking into a situation for a new head coach. Jared Bednar ran into a buzzsaw. The Avalanche finished the season in last place by miles. The next closest team had 21 mo...

Avalanche Streak to the All-Star Break

The Colorado Avalanche headed into the All-Star break running on a much-needed five-game point streak. Racking up eight points in those five games helped the Avalanche re-establish themselves as the second seed in the Central Division.
