Brad Pitt Assassin Movie ‘Bullet Train’ Casts Aaron Taylor-Johnson as “Tangerine”

Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Avengers: Age of Ultron) is about to step on a train…the only problem is that the train is full of assassins. The former Kick-Ass star is the latest cast member to hop on board Sony’s Bullet Train, an assassin film which has Oscar winner Brad Pitt headlining and former stuntman and Deadpool 2 director David Leitch behind the camera. What’s that, you ask? What is Taylor-Johnson’s character’s name going to be? I’m so glad you asked. According to a new report, he will playing...

Supreme Court nominee Barrett was trustee for private schools with anti-gay policies

By MICHELLE R. SMITH and MICHAEL BIESECKER | Associated Press Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett served for nearly three years on the board of private Christian schools that effectively barred admission to children of same-sex parents and made it plain that openly gay and lesbian teachers weren’t welcome in the classroom. The policies that discriminated against LGBTQ people and their children were in place for years at Trinity Schools Inc., both before Barrett joined the board in 2015 and d...

Symposium: Barrett’s history-first approach to the Second Amendment

This article is part of a symposium on the jurisprudence of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. Ten years before Justice Antonin Scalia wrote the landmark Second Amendment opinion in District of Columbia v. Heller crystallizing the Constitution’s guarantee of the right to keep and bear arms as an individual right, he was welcoming a young clerk to chambers by the name of Amy Coney Barrett. There were no Second Amendment cases before the Supreme Court that term. In fact, before Heller, the c...

Justice Thomas Writes a Misguided Anti-Section 230 Statement “Without the Benefit of Briefing”–Enigma v. Malwarebytes

Last year, the Ninth Circuit ruled that a plaintiff could plead around Section 230(c)(2)(B), the safe harbor for providing filtering instructions, by claiming that the filtering was motivated by anticompetitive animus. Last week, the Supreme Court denied certiorari. This isn’t surprising–the Supreme Court takes a low percentage of cases–but it’s too bad the Ninth Circuit ruling won’t be corrected. Alongside the cert denial, Justice Thomas added a statement railing against Section 230 (starting...

Analysis: France's Muslims fear further isolation amid calls for tougher action on militant Islam

The beheading of a teacher has prompted calls for tougher action against militant Islam from the French Right and Left, but it has also deepened a sense of alienation among the country’s Muslims. Most unreservedly condemn the killing and other acts of terrorism, but many do not understand why teachers need to show what they see as gratuitously offensive cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad in classes about freedom of expression. Jacques Thomas, a teacher at a technical college in a predominantly imm...

Maskless White People Are Fueling a Massive New Coronavirus Surge in Mississippi

Wayne Moak isn’t sure who first brought the coronavirus into the congregation at Clear Branch Baptist Church in rural Wesson, Mississippi, but when it got there in late September, “it spread fast,” he told The Daily Beast.Within weeks, more than two dozen members of the congregation were sick, including Moak, his wife, son, and all three other staff members, he recalled.Of course, this was exactly the scenario he’d been hoping to avoid when the church decided, in the early days of the pandemic, ...

Justices take up Fourth Amendment case

The Supreme Court issued more orders on Monday from the justices’ private conference last week, adding three new cases to their merits docket for the term. In addition to cases involving the census (added on Friday) and two cases involving the Trump administration’s efforts to stem immigration along the U.S.-Mexico border, the justices announced that they will weigh in on the scope of the Fourth Amendment’s warrant requirement. The justices denied review in another Fourth Amendment case, prompti...

Argument analysis: Justices weigh mandatory deportations based on “thin reed” of minor crimes

On Wednesday, the Supreme Court heard oral argument in Pereida v. Barr, an effort by Clemente Pereida, who has lived in the United States without authorization for nearly 25 years, to avoid mandatory deportation by presenting evidence to an immigration judge that his deportation would cause exceptional and extremely unusual hardship to his United States citizen son. He was denied the opportunity to present this evidence because the Board of Immigration Appeals, and later the U.S. Court of Appeal...

Big tech's biggest shield is under fire from all 3 branches of government — here's how repealing Section 230 went from a Trump threat to an impending reality

Pressure is mounting in all three branches of government to strip blanket protections that big tech companies have long enjoyed. Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images Section 230 — a federal law that Shields social media companies from liabilities that would otherwise reshape or crush their businesses — appears closer than ever to being rewritten.  President Donald Trump has escalated a recent push to repeal Section 230 as retribution for Facebook and Twitter fact-checking his posts. He says they'...

Man Sentenced To 11 Years In Prison For Brutal Attack On Mom, Sister Over Marijuana Smoke

SACRAMENTO (CBS13) – A man who was convicted of a brutal attack on two family members has been sentenced by a judge to more than 11 years in prison. On September 16, 2020 a jury in Sacramento convicted Edward Thomas of two counts of elder abuse with great bodily injury enhancements and two counts of battery causing serious bodily injury after a brutal attack on his sister and mother.

Argument analysis: Justices spar over stare decisis, originalism, text and what counts as a Fourth Amendment “seizure”

In the oral argument of Torres v. Madrid on Wednesday, the justices tried out all the tools of constitutional interpretation as they worked through the meaning of the critical Fourth Amendment term, “seizure.” How they rule will answer one of the last remaining questions in this context: Is there a Fourth Amendment “seizure” when the police shoot a fleeing suspect who is injured by the bullets but does not stop? Kelsi Brown Corkran, for Roxanne Torres, and Mark Standridge, for officers (Art L...

‘Rebecca’ Review: Ben Wheatley’s Slick Update on the Gothic Romance Fails to Thrill

It’s never a good idea to remake Hitchcock, even though several have tried. And while Ben Wheatley‘s new Netflix Rebecca is technically not a remake, but rather a new adaptation of Daphne du Maurier’s classic novel, it can’t escape the Hitchock film’s legacy. Like its main character, Rebecca is living in the shadow of its predecessor. To Wheatley’s credit, he doesn’t try to ape Hitchcock in any way, shape, or form. But, oddly enough, he doesn’t bring much new life to the proceedings, either. Fo...

Kristin Scott Thomas Looks to Bring Dark Mrs. Danvers Into the Light in Netflix’s ‘Rebecca’ Adaptation

Kristin Scott Thomas made her Hollywood debut in the 1986 Prince vehicle “Under the Cherry Moon.” It was not an acclaimed breakthrough. “It was what people like to call ‘a turkey,’” Thomas says in a crisp British accent that actually makes the word “turkey” sound elegant and prestigious. The reviews were vicious. “After being told […]

Clarence Thomas Doesn't Like Section 230, Adding To His Anti-Free Speech Legacy (techdirt)

I'm not quite sure what has gotten into Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas lately, but he's been on quite a roll in terms of deciding he wants to toss out all sorts of well-settled precedents (including, in at least one case, his very own precedent). What's alarming, though, is that he seems particularly focused on hacking away at free speech and the 1st Amendment. Back in 2016, when people were discussing whether or Donald Trump could "open up" libel laws, lawyer Ken White noted that there w...

Argument analysis: Justices don’t tip their hand in military rape case

During Tuesday’s telephonic oral argument in United States v. Briggs, counsel for both sides urged the justices to avoid deciding whether the Eighth Amendment ruling in Coker v. Georgia, prohibiting capital punishment for nonhomicide rape, applies to the military. But it isn’t clear whether five justices can agree on the statutory argument of one side or the other, suggesting that it is still possible the court will reach the constitutional issue. Stephen Vladeck phones in to the argument, with...

Symposium: Barrett’s record suggests willingness to uphold abortion restrictions

This article is the first entry in a symposium on the jurisprudence of Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett. As a presidential candidate in 2016, Donald Trump pledged to appoint “pro-life” justices. As a result, he told Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, the Supreme Court would “automatically” overturn Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 decision establishing the right to obtain an abortion. At this ongoing week’s confirmation hearings for Judge Amy Coney Barrett, Trump’s nominee to fill the vacancy o...

"Justices Scalia and Thomas disagreed often enough that my friend, Judge Melissa Parr, teaches a class called Scalia Versus Thomas..."/"Well, I’ll wait till the movie comes out."

From "Amy Coney Barrett Senate Confirmation Hearing Day 2 Transcript."  Lindsey Graham made a joke. The class title — "Scalia Versus Thomas" — must have reminded him of all those movie titles — like "Godzilla vs. Rodan."  Jokes are telling. Isn't it interesting that they're all gathered to grill Barrett on her judicial methods, the question on the floor is "People say that you’re a female Scalia. What would you say?," she's trying to explicate the details, and the pushback is something that...

Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas suggested in a statement on Tuesday that some legal immunities granted to internet platforms under Section 230 of the Communications Decency Act could be narrowed or eliminated in future court cases.Section 230 grants internet platforms immunity from prosecution if a third party uploads defamatory or otherwise illegal content. For example, a blog website currently cannot be held legally liable if a third-party blogger writes a libelous post. (Such immunity d...
