The treatment of trans inmates has long been a focus of advocates for trans rights, with stories of abuse fueling calls for reforms and more targeted anti-discrimination laws. The case at hand concerned Kesha Williams, a trans woman with gender dysphoria who was held for six months at a Virginia prison. A district court initially dismissed Williams’ case on the basis of the ADA’s explicit exclusion of “gender identity disorders not resulting from physical impairments” from protection under the law. Williams appealed, arguing that because the language of the exclusion is dated and undefined, it was up to the court to determine whether gender dysphoria is protected under the ADA. “In sum, we hold that Williams has plausibly alleged that gender dysphoria does not fall within the ADA’s exclusion for ‘gender identity disorders not resulting from physical impairments,’” the ruling said.

The docuseries "Legacy: The True Story of the L.A. Lakers" debuted yesterday on Hulu, and it gains "instant credibility in its first episode when it becomes clear" that the entire Buss family "participated in the series," according to Dan Woike of the L.A. TIMES. But we knew going in there was a structure to it. It starts off as family. Then it gets into the business and what the business can do to family, and then it gets back to family. We wanted to get this out when it was ready to be told” (CONSEQUENCE.net, 8/15).

By Annie Grayer | CNNTwo top House Democrats are accusing the Department of Homeland Security Inspector General of obstructing their investigation into missing Secret Service text messages related to the January 6 Capitol attack, escalating tensions between Congress and the watchdog agency. CNN has requested comment from the DHS IG office. The lawmakers also raised questions of whether Cuffari is using the ongoing criminal investigation into the missing text messages as an excuse to obstruct Congress. Despite the alleged obstruction from Cuffari, Maloney and Thompson made a renewed request for documents and for DHS OIG personnel to be made available for interviews with a deadline of August 23. Maloney and Thompson say that Cuffari is also obstructing their efforts on another investigation.

These could be interesting, unlike the rather predictable Minnesota primary. Wyoming voted for Trump in 2020 by 70 percent in the presidential election, and Cheney’s passionate invocations of Trump’s threats to democracy haven’t changed many minds there. In fact, Trump’s election lies have completely remade the entire Republican Party, a recent Pew Survey finds, to the point where most voters who identify strongly as Republican want to hear their elected officials parrot it. The only think I like about Cheney is her stance against Trump, but otherwise…just another evil Republican. Another race where I cannot see much hope: Republican Senator Lisa Murkowski is being primaried by a Trump fanatic.

Sandler tweeted out a photo of the 26-year-old alongside the character with the caption, “Have fun today young man. I’m always available for you, Mr. Gilmore.” Following his recent win on Sunday, the actor sent him his best, stating, “Congrats Will!

Fox News personalities are now dishonestly engaging in rhetorical whataboutism in response to threats against federal law enforcement from supporters of former President Donald Trump after the FBI searched his Mar-a-Lago resort. In their fictional retelling, the Department of Justice under Attorney General Merrick Garland has taken a hard line against Trump and his supporters, yet has done nothing to protect right-wing Supreme Court justices such as Trump-nominated Justice Brett Kavanaugh who have also received violent threats. In fact, when an armed suspect was arrested outside Kavanaugh’s home in early June for allegedly threatening to kill Kavanaugh, Garland strongly condemned threats of violence against the justices and described the measures that the Justice Department has taken to protect them. “Threats of violence and actual violence against the justices of course strike at the heart of our democracy, and we will do everything we can to prevent them and to hold people who do them accountable,” Garland said on June 8. He further outlined actions he had taken the previous month to increase security at the justices’ homes “24/7,” and a meeting he had with court security and law enforcement officials “to ensure every degree of protection available as possible.”

By Kirk Sigmon (August 16, 2022, 6:11 PM EDT) -- A recent class action by video game collectors against a video game grading service may very well be the beginning of a massive crash in the market for collecting video games. The lawsuit is not merely interesting for its facts — which involve, among other things, a $1 million Super Mario Brothers game, the TV show "Pawn Stars," and the Carolina Collection of video games — but also for the lessons it indirectly provides for intellectual property rights holders.
