California lawmakers vote to pass toughest net neutrality law in the nation

California lawmakers vote to pass toughest net neutrality law in the nation | 31 Aug 2018 | California lawmakers rallied enough votes Friday to pass the nation's toughest net neutrality law to prevent Internet providers from favoring certain websites, setting up a fight with federal regulators who voted last year to erase such rules.

The legislation, which was the subject of intense lobbying by the broadband industry, would prevent Internet providers from blocking, slowing or favoring certain websites.

Bigley, who is representing Lovinger pro bono, said his client flagged the concerns about contractors -- including Stefan Halper, the professor -- as early as 2016, to Lovinger's leadership at the Office of Net Assessment (ONA), which is like an internal Pentagon think tank.

Trump says 'no reason' for costly war games with South Korea, blames China for stalemate with North

Trump says 'no reason' for costly war games with South Korea, blames China for stalemate with North | 29 Aug 2018 | US President Donald Trump has blamed Beijing for the lack of progress on North Korea's denuclearization, saying China has put North Korea "under tremendous pressure" in response to a trade war Trump had started in the first place. The White House statement, posted by Trump in a string of tweets, says that the US President "feels strongly" that Pyongyang has been a subject of "tremendous pressure from China because of our major trade disputes with the Chinese Government." Despite the White House's failure to reach any substantial progress in implementing the loosely worded agreement between North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and Trump, reached at the bilateral summit in June, the statement stresses that Trump believes his relationship with Kim is a "very good and warm one, and there is no reason at this time to be spending large amounts of money on joint US-South Korea war games."

Landmark Seventh Circuit Decision Says Fourth Amendment Applies to Smart Meter Data

Landmark Seventh Circuit Decision Says Fourth Amendment Applies to Smart Meter Data | 25 Aug 2018 | The Seventh Circuit just handed down a landmark opinion, ruling 3-0 that the Fourth Amendment protects energy-consumption data collected by smart meters. Smart meters collect energy usage data at high frequencies--typically every 5, 15, or 30 minutes--and therefore know exactly how much electricity is being used, and when, in any given household. The court recognized that data from these devices reveals intimate details about what's going on inside the home that would otherwise be unavailable to the government without a physical search. The court held that residents have a reasonable expectation of privacy in this data and that the government's access of it constitutes a "search."

The Kansas Department of Health and Environment didn't act for more than six years.

Lanny Davis Says He Was a Source for CNN's Trump Tower Story

Lanny Davis Says He Was a Source for CNN's Trump Tower Story --Davis, Cohen's lawyer and spokesperson, said he also regrets lying about his involvement in the story on CNN's air last week. | 27 Aug 2018 | Attorney Lanny Davis says he was an anonymous source in a July CNN story that reported his client, Michael Cohen, had privately claimed that President Trump had advance knowledge of the Trump Tower meeting between his son and Russians -- contradicting Davis's own words on CNN's air last week. In the story, Cohen was reported to claim he had personally witnessed Donald Trump Jr. informing then-candidate Trump about the June 2016 meeting. Such a claim from Cohen would directly contradict Trump's statements about his knowledge of the meeting, where Russians were set to offer dirt on Hillary Clinton. CNN's July 26 story has come under fresh scrutiny in recent days after Davis acknowledged he had served as an anonymous source for multiple news outlets who were seeking to confirm the CNN article in the hours after it published.
