By MICHAEL R.

Assistant District Attorney Joan Illuzzi-Orbon said Manhattan prosecutors were satisfied with Cooper’s participation in the program — described as an alternative, restor...

Kenosha shooter's defense portrays him as 'American patriot'

The way lawyers for Kyle Rittenhouse tell it, he wasn't just a scared teenager acting in self-defense when he shot to death two Kenosha, Wisconsin, protesters. “They’re playing to his most negative characteristics and stereotypes, what his critics want to perceive him as — a crazy militia member out to cause harm and start a revolution,” said Robert Barnes, a prominent Los Angeles defense attorney.

Kenosha shooter’s defense portrays teen as ‘American patriot’

He was a courageous defender of liberty, a patriot exercising his right to bear arms amid rioting in the streets. “A 17-year-old citizen is being sacrificed by politicians, but it’s not Kyle Rittenhouse they are after.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, feminist pioneer and progressive icon, dies at 87

Ruth Bader Ginsburg, a trailblazer who fought for gender equality as a lawyer and became a beloved hero of the progressive movement as a justice, died on Friday of complications from pancreatic cancer. When she was confirmed to the Supreme Court in 1993, Ginsburg was a reserved and relatively unknown court of appeals judge, but during the course of her 27 years on the court she became an improbable pop-culture icon, inspiring everything from an Oscar-nominated documentary film to her own action ...
