Why attorneys for Southern California schools blame victims for their own sexual abuse, bullying

When lawyers representing Moreno Valley Unified School District argued that 13-year-old Diego Stolz and his family were partly to blame for his death at the hands of two bullies, it wasn’t the first time such an argument was used — and likely won’t be the last. “I think it’s a disgusting strategy,” said lawyer Morgan Stewart, whose Irvine firm has sued districts whose defense attorneys have responded by blaming his clients for their alleged abuse. “It bothers me at a core level.” Lewis Brisbois ...

LAFC Lose In CONCACAF Champions League Final

There’s no shame in losing to a team as good as Tigres UANL, but that doesn’t make Tuesday’s 2-1 defeat in the Concacaf Champions League Final any less painful for LAFC, considering how close they came to pulling off the upset. In a game that most pregame predictions had Tigres winning handily, it was LAFC that were in the driver’s seat following Diego Rossi’s 61st-minute opener that put his team just 30 minutes from history. Then, there was a golden opportunity just four minutes later after Kwa...

Alexander: For LAFC, CONCACAF Champions League is even bigger

The CONCACAF Champions League is this continent’s counterpart to the UEFA Champions League in Europe – you know, the one where the heavy hitters of the Premier League, La Liga, Serie A and the like stare each other down, while among other things providing compelling midday programming for ESPN. The problem – strictly a U.S./Canadian problem, to be sure – is that this continent’s tournament, which likewise sends its winner to the FIFA Club World Cup, has been almost exclusively a Mexican producti...

Hear Legendary BBC Composer Delia Derbyshire’s Electronic Version of Bach’s “Air on a G String” When the warm, warbly, slightly-out-of-tune sounds of the early Moog synthesizer met the delicate figures of Bach’s concertos, suites, preludes, fugues, and airs in Wendy Carlos’ 1968 Switched-on Bach, the result reinvigorated popular interest in classical music and helped launch the careers of seventies Moog synthesists like composer of instrumental hit “Popcorn,” Gershon Kingsley; occultist and composer of TV themes and jingles, Mort Garson; ...

Reclaiming the Race Analogy in Fulton v. City of Philadelphia

Kyle C. Velte The Supreme Court held oral argument last week in Fulton v. City of Philadelphia, a case asking whether a taxpayer-funded foster care agency may turn away same-sex couples who wish to be foster parents because of the agency’s sincere religious objection to certifying same-sex couples.
