Patna (Bihar) [India], November 29 (ANI): Responding to Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav’s ‘maha jungle raj’ remark, Bihar deputy Chief Minister Tarkishore Prasad on Sunday said the maintenance of law and order in the state is his government’s priority.

What Madison’s new cannabis law means and doesn’t mean for residents | Local Government

For example, the city’s original cannabis law did not prohibit possession or consumption inside a private residence that’s within 1,000 feet of a school — a violation under state law that can require 100 hours of community service in addition to fines and possible jail time.

Under Madison’s revised law, though, consuming cannabis within 1,000 feet of a school, including on public property and inside private residences, can now result in a municipal citation of $1 plus costs for a total of $62.26.

Additionally, the revised law bans possession of cannabis on a school bus, prohibits its use in a vehicle that is in operation and bars anyone 17 and younger from having or using the drug.

The changes also allow adults to possess and consume up to 28 grams of cannabis derivatives, such as THC-containing oil or marijuana-infused food and candy, commonly referred to as edibles, and permits having

Man sought in lawyer’s death on US Marshals fugitive list

NORTHBROOK, Ill. (AP) — A man sought in connection with a suburban Chicago lawyer’s 2016 strangulation death has been named one of the U.S. Marshals’ most-wanted fugitives.

There’s a $25,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of 54-year-old John Panaligan, according to The Chicago Sun-Times. Authorities allege he strangled 36-year-old real estate attorney Victor Jigar Patel in his Northbrook office in 2016.

At the time, Patel had been representing plaintiffs suing Panaligan in civil court. Authorities allege Panaligan scheduled an appointment at the law office using an alias and allegedly wore a disguise.

The Marshals Service said Panaligan allegedly fled to Mexico before authorities could arrest him. In 2017, authorities believed he was in the Philippines, where he has family and owns property, but now “believe he could be anywhere.” Panaligan maintains dual citizenship in the U.S. and Philippines, according to authorities.

Trump rails at judges as another court rejects his lawyers’ claims of voter fraud | US news

A day after Pennsylvania’s highest court had thrown out a lower court’s order preventing the state from certifying results from the 3 November US elections, Donald Trump blasted the judges’ decision.

Saturday’s case – which had attempted to throw out 2.5m mail in votes in the crucial state – was the latest of dozens of failed lawsuits by Trump’s lawyers, with judges castigating his lawyers for failing to present evidence of fraud.

With states certifying results, Trump has an ever dwindling route to contest the election as Joe Biden pushes on with preparations for his inauguration as president on 20 January and recruits the team for his administration.

However, on Sunday in his first media appearance since losing the presidential contest to his Democratic rival, the president phoned into Fox News to blame the courts for his campaign’s so far unsuccessful legal challenges, which are based on a series of

Pennsylvania Republicans to ask Supreme Court to review case after dismissal: candidate

The Pennsylvania Supreme Court has tossed out an election lawsuit to delegitimize mail-in ballots, but Republican congressional candidate Sean Parnell said his team will on Sunday ask the U.S. Supreme Court to review the case, which questions the constitutionality of Pennsylvania’s Act 77.

Gov. Tom Wolf signed Act 77 into law in October 2019, administering no-excuse mail-in voting. Parnell told “Fox & Friends Weekend” on Sunday that the state Supreme Court dismissing the case was a “blatant political act.”

“What I’m trying to do is bring a sense of clarity to an election where 50% of the people in the state of Pennsylvania have no clarity,” he said. “And the fact is because they dismissed my case with prejudice, they’re saying that anybody else in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania can challenge the unconstitutionality of Act 77 but me.”

Officials raid home of Diego Maradona’s doctor, probe death as manslaughter case

Argentine investigators raided the home of Diego Maradona’s doctor on Sunday as they probe a possible case of involuntary manslaughter in the soccer legend’s death.

The blitz comes after Maradona’s lawyer last week called for a full investigation into the circumstances surrounding the death of the 60-year-old former soccer phenom, who died Wednesday after suffering a heart attack, the Mirror reported Sunday.

Investigators converged on the home of the doctor, Leopoldo Luque, 33, around 8:40 a.m. Sunday and are expected to question him as they probe possible medical negligence in Maradona’s death, the outlet said.

“As Luque was Maradona’s personal physician the decision was taken to search his house and surgery (office) to look for documents that could determine whether, during Maradona’s treatment at home, there were any irregularities,” a law enforcement source told Argentina’s La Nacion.

The soccer star’s lawyer, Matias Moria, raised questions about his death Thursday.

COLUMN: Eateries are defying the law to survive | Opinion

Denver has homeless encampments and rioters who topple and destroy statues.

By contrast the city of Loveland has no homeless living on the streets; they don’t allow it. And with famous sculptors like the Lundeen family and one of the finest foundries in the world, Loveland creates statues.

So which city is the most lawless? Well, Loveland of course.

The protesters in Denver want political change and they are willing to litter, burn, vandalize and loot to move the needle to the left, toward a more socialist world where other people are forced to give them things.

The Loveland Lawless are a little different. Instead of tearing down, their rebellion is to build up. Instead of demanding money from others, their revolt is to risk their life savings, compete to earn money and employ people in their community. That earned money is then taxed (and then redistributed).

Their act of
