This is how New Way of Life rehabilitates women recently released from prison

Gabriela Maldonado woke up on Feb. 12, and cried. She prayed. She apologized. But she does not expect forgiveness. The young man who could give it, after all, had been dead for nearly 30 years. Yet there Maldonado sat – free. Free to leave the second-floor bedroom of the Watts house in which she lives. Free to visit her brother. Free to get a job, open a bank account and save money for a place of her own. Just free. Even though she was convicted of killing the man to whom she prayed. “This time,...

Mikey Garcia must ‘Cowboy Up’ against Errol Spence Jr.

It’s understandable that Errol Spence Jr. is a fan of the Dallas Cowboys because he grew up in Desoto, Texas, which is in Dallas County. Mikey Garcia is from Oxnard, where the Cowboys hold their annual training camp. He, too, roots for “America’s Team.” The fighters this week touched on that aspect ahead of their March 16 fight at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, home of the Cowboys. Apparently, it’s kind of a big deal to them. “This is a dream come true,” said Spence, 29. “This is something th...

Relist Watch

John Elwood reviews Tuesday’s relists. I have an argument coming up, so I’m going to be fairly summary today. There was a fair amount of turnover at the February 15 conference, with one relist getting the nod (while its companion case had to settle for a hold) and one lucky petitioner winning summary reversal. Although the court to a former congressman who sought to challenge criminal charges he was facing, Justice Sonia Sotomayor at least filed an opinion acknowledging that the issue he raise...

'Grow up': Rival lashes 'childish' Garcia over epic tantrum

Three-time major winner Brooks Koepka has accused Sergio Garcia of acting like a child following the incident which led to his shock disqualification from the inaugural Saudi International. Garcia was disqualified for "serious misconduct" under rule 1.2a after admitting to damaging greens on the front nine of Royal Greens Golf & Country Club during the third round last week. Koepka was playing two groups ahead of Garcia and therefore not directly affected by the actions of the 39-year-old, but w...

The newest display in the Museum of Government Deceit

If California ever built a Museum of Government Deceit, it could never be big enough to house the entire collection. The exhibits would have to rotate in and out from a warehouse somewhere, probably in Texas, where there’s enough room for it. But certainly one of the prized items on display would be this perfect specimen from Los Angeles Unified School District board President Mónica García, uttered one day after the LAUSD board voted 5-1 to approve a resolution asking state officials to order a...
