Watch now: Kyle Rittenhouse’s attorney argues self-defense at preliminary hearing | Crime

The detective testified that Rosenbaum was chasing Rittenhouse before he was shot. After that shooting, he said, Rittenhouse was running away and fell to the ground, shooting Huber after Huber hit Rittenhouse with a skateboard. Another man, who was seen on video trying to kick Rittenhouse, was never identified, Antaramian testified.

“The state is trying to put forward a one-sided view of what happened, protecting someone who does not deserve protection, he’s a masked robber,” Richards said of Rosenbaum.

Rittenhouse has preliminary hearing Thursday on Kenosha charges

A Kenosha County Circuit Court Commissioner ruled there’s enough evidence for a trial for 17-year-old Kyle Rittenhouse, who’s charged with fatally shooting two men.

KENOSHA, Wis. — There is enough evidence to warrant a trial for an Illinois 17-year-old accused of killing two men and wounding a third during a night of unrest in Wisconsin, a court commissioner ruled Thursday after a contentious hearing in which the defendant’s lawyer tried to show he had acted in self-defense.

Kyle Rittenhouse, of Antioch, Illinois, is charged with homicide and attempted homicide for the Aug. 25 fatal shootings of Joseph Rosenbaum and Anthony Huber and the wounding of Gaige Grosskreutz during a night of unrest two days after the police shooting in Kenosha of Jacob Blake, a local Black man.

During a preliminary hearing conducted via video, Kenosha County Circuit Court Commissioner Loren Keating found that there was enough probable cause for the

Hearing set on proposed ban of remote-controlled devices for fishing | Montana Untamed

The Fish and Wildlife Commission will hold a public hearing via a telephonic Zoom platform on Dec. 1, at 10 a.m., to consider a proposed rule banning the use of remote-controlled devices and drones while fishing.

Fish, Wildlife & Parks has increasingly been asked if it is permissible to use a remote-controlled boat, drone, or other remote-controlled device to fish. Currently, Montana law does not specifically address remote-controlled devices or drones, and gives the commission discretion to allow or prohibit this activity. Possible uses of remote-controlled devices and drones while fishing include transporting bait and hooks long distances beyond where anglers can physically cast, transporting bait and hooks to areas that normally are unable to be accessed such as closed areas near dams, scouting large areas above water quickly for fish and filming fish in real time, dropping hooks or bait with exceptional accuracy, and landing fish.

The proposed rule

Troconis’ attorney requests access to prosecutors’ evidence at Dulos case hearing

STAMFORD, Conn. (WTNH) — Michelle Troconis, suspect in the case of missing New Canaan mom, Jennifer Farber Dulos, faced a judge Tuesday morning in a virtual court appearance.

She is facing conspiracy to commit murder and obstruction of justice charges in the case.

We are inching towards the trial in this case. Troconis remains free on bond, but she had her video off during most of the hearing.

During the hearing, her attorney argued for access to evidence including surveillance video of a person on a bike that state police cited in their arrest warrants against Fotis Dulos and Troconis. Attorney Jon Schoenhorn also asked for photos of what he said was a strip search done on Troconis, saying he is concerned those photos were never turned over by police. Prosecutors agreed.

Next, Schoenhorn argued for document access to a custody evaluation done by a psychologist of Jenner Farber Dulos

Prosecutors seek hearing on Rittenhouse attorney’s request

Kenosha County prosecutors are seeking a hearing on a California attorney’s request to be allowed to appear in court for an Illinois 17-year-old accused of killing two people during a protest in Wisconsin.

John Pierce, of Los Angeles, is not licensed to practice in Wisconsin and would need the court’s permission to appear in court for Kyle Rittenhouse. Such requests are routinely granted, but Kenosha County Assistant District Attorney Jason Zapf has asked for a hearing on the matter “to address several issues.”

Pierce has no real criminal defense experience and has been promoting Rittenhouse as a patriot, saying the case is one of political prosecution, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported. He has also worked to solicit donations for Rittenhouse’s defense.

Trump lawyers withdraw on eve of key hearing in Pennsylvania election case

(Reuters) – Three more lawyers representing President Donald Trump’s campaign have asked to withdraw from his lawsuit challenging the U.S. election results in Pennsylvania, shaking up his legal team on the eve of a major court hearing.

The lawyers – Linda Kerns, John Scott and Douglas Bryan Hughes – made the request in a court filing on Monday, adding that the campaign consented to their withdrawal.

In a brief order on Monday night, the judge hearing the case allowed Scott and Hughes to withdraw but not Kerns.

Harrisburg-based lawyer Marc Scaringi has joined the case and will be Trump’s lead counsel. Scaringi and the three attorneys who sought to withdraw did not immediately respond to requests for comment.

Scaringi on Monday asked the judge to postpone a hearing scheduled for Tuesday, saying he and a law partner “need additional time to adequately prepare.” The judge

L.A. City Attorney Drafts Law to Ban Private Prisons; Public Hearing Nov. 12


Share this article:

The City Attorney’s Office Monday released a draft ordinance to prohibit the operation and construction of private prisons in Los Angeles, after a proposal was put forward by Councilman Herb Wesson last year.

The ordinance would also ban the operation and establishment of privately owned detention facilities that hold unaccompanied immigrant minors.

“Profiting off of locking people up will not fly in Los Angeles,” Wesson said last year when he introduced his motion. “This industry is an equal partner in the Trump administration’s cruel treatment of immigrant children and families, and the mass incarceration of communities of color. We call on every city and county to join us in preventing this kind of activity from operating within their borders.”

The ordinance is slated to be adopted quickly, as Wesson stated that the effects on detainees at privately owned prisons and unaccompanied minor immigrant detention facilities was “well

Amid the Barrett Hearing Choreography, a Near-Certain Outcome: Confirmation

WASHINGTON — The outcome of the Senate struggle over President Trump’s high court nominee was evident from the moment Senator Lindsey Graham convened the proceedings by announcing that “the hearing to confirm Judge Amy Barrett to the Supreme Court will now begin.”

He could have said, as is more customary, that the Judiciary Committee hearing to consider her nomination was starting. But Mr. Graham was more truthful in saying what he did. Judge Barrett’s confirmation has always been the virtually certain result of the hearing and the coming Senate vote just days before Election Day, and that was more apparent than ever on Tuesday as senators questioned her.

With the hearing taking place closer to an election than any other Supreme Court confirmation — and with the Senate Republican majority at real risk — the proceeding was imbued with electoral politics perhaps to a greater degree than any previous one.
