|An internal investigation found that over years, Sister Mary Margaret Kreuper and Sister Lana Chang used funds set aside for St. James Catholic School as an ATM for their Vegas jaunts. Bank records show they had been embezzling funds for at least a decade. The Archdiocese does not intend to pursue criminal proceedings against the sisters. |
The pair would often go traveling and gambling, claiming they had been given the money by a rich relative.
|The revelations came as a shock to parents and church members, who thought St. James was struggling to stay afloat fiscally.|

....Will Robert Mueller’s big time conflicts of interest be listed at the top of his Republicans only Report. Will Andrew Weissman’s horrible and vicious prosecutorial past be listed in the Report. He wrongly destroyed people’s lives, took down great companies, only to be........
|Yet again Trump issued a series of bizarre early morning tweets that make little sense. He seems entirely consumed by the Meuller probe.|

|Frank Sivero, famous for his mobster roles in The Godfather, Part II and Goodfellas, claimed that The Simpsons character, Louie, henchman to mob boss Fat Tony, was based on him, and misappropriated his name and likeness. Fox countered with the special motion to strike, which allows a court to toss meritless suits early in the process to save time and money.|
|Fox based its defense on an anti-SLAPP special motion to strike — a California law designed to dispose of “meritless lawsuits brought to chill the valid exercise of the constitutional right of petition or free speech”.|
To prevail on a special motion to strike, Fox first had to prove that the lawsuit was brought because of Fox’s exercise of its free speech rights. Since The Simpsons lay at the heart of Sivero’s complaint, this hurdle was easily met. Next, Sivero would have to prove that he would likely win at trial. He did not, and the Court dismissed the lawsuit entirely.

|"We do not have Obama judges or Trump judges, Bush judges or Clinton judges," Roberts said in a statement. "What we have is an extraordinary group of dedicated judges doing their level best to do equal right to those appearing before them. That independent judiciary is something we should all be thankful for."|
|US Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has taken the extraordinary step of rebuking President Donald Trump. Trump on Tuesday called a jurist who ruled against his asylum policy an "Obama judge".|
|It is extremely rare if not completely unheard of for the nation's top court, let alone its head, to clash with the executive branch of the US government. Chief Justice Roberts - who was appointed to lead the court in 2005 by President George W Bush - was responding to Trump's remark a day earlier. Trump had spoken out following US District Judge Jon Tigar's ruling against a presidential executive order denying illegal migrants the right to seek asylum.|
