BREAKING: California appeals court rules that Manson family member Leslie Van Houten should be released on parole. The decision overturns Gov. Gavin Newsom's previous denial of parole for Van Houten in 2020. ImageImage
Van Houten has been recommended for parole five times since 2016, but her requests were denied by either Newsom or former Gov. Jerry Brown. 🏛️ The Second District Court of Appeal ruled 2-1 in favor of granting her parole. #appealscourt #California
Gov. Newsom claimed that Van Houten still poses a danger to society, but the appellate court found no evidence to support his conclusions. ⚖️ California Attorney General Rob Bonta could ask the California Supreme Court to stop Van Houten's release. #court #SupremeCourt

Westminster Hall debate on Imprisonment for Public Protection (#IPP) Sentences, @CommonsJustice report and Government response – Thursday 27 April 2023: highlights 🧵 1/44
Opening the debate @CommonsJustice chair @neill_bob explains #IPP sentences were abolished in 2012 mainly because “far more people fell within the scope of the scheme than had been the political intention”, but Govt “did not deal with those who were already serving sentences”2/44
“621 of those prisoners are at least 10 years over their tariff and 222 of those received a tariff of less than two years” @neill_bob reveals – “five times longer than the index sentence that … the judge who heard the facts thought was the appropriate tariff for the offence”3/44

How do the #Courts decide #maintenance when the income of the #parties is not clear? And cannot apply any formula to the income.

The courts consider the following #aspects.

=Thread= Image
The presumption that every able-bodied person must earn and maintain their #wife and #children is not accounted for by courts in India.
Courts assume that the family has sufficient means to #support the #husband and provide income based on lifestyle.
The courts are mindful of deductions on which parties have #nocontrol, such as Contribution to Provident Fund and other direct #taxes. ..

NEW: Many congratulations to @texmed, @AdamCorley, & @TxRadSociety on launching their *fourth* #NoSurprisesAct #lawsuit against @HHSGov, @CMSGov, @USTreasury, & @USDOL.

This filing challenges the government's decision to impose a 600% increase in administrative #IDR...

...fees and the requirement to batch by the same #CPT code.

⏰ Time is running out, and #regulators must be compelled to stand up and operate a fully-functioning, fair, accessible, & *timely* IDR process, just like the law prescribed.

On Dec 6th, #Libya 's #HoR adopted a law establishing a constitutional court to be based in #Benghazi & transforming the Tripoli-based Supreme #Court into a Cassation Court. Background, validity, & implication: 🧵
1.a)In legal terms, the origin of Libya’s current crisis goes back to a ruling by the supreme court’s constitutional chamber issued in Nov. 2014 and annulling HoR election.
1.b) From a legal standpoint: the current HoR is not the elected house parliament of Libya, but a body revived by the LPA as a party to a conflict and partner in a process together with the HCS also revived by the same Agreement.

#OrangeTheWorld - A thread on reproductive control, coercion and entrapment 🧵

As a #trapped populations scholar, I have lately spent a lot of time thinking about reproductive #coercion, #control and #entrapment. (i)
The #familycourts appear to fail to understand, acknowledge and interrupt these dynamics of #coercivecontrol in their current system. (ii)
Many perpetrators of #coercivecontrol will already begin to put pressure on or introduce the idea of a child during the early love bombing phase. (iii)

2/ It is not as simple as that however, so let me explain the process.

The following explanation is in line with the Uniform Rules of Court and the Gauteng Division’s various Practice Directives. Let’s start.

Excited to release our latest @BU_Law #immigrants' rights & human trafficking #clinic report on the Institutional Hearing Program ("IHP"), a little known program that quickly, and quietly, #deports noncitizens convicted of crimes. THREAD 1/…
For more than 40 years, IHP has been operating in the shadows, yet another branch of the vast #ICE #enforcement regime. IHP operates at least across 19 states, #deporting noncitizens who are unlikely to be represented by counsel. 2/

Turkish oppositional journalist Sedef Kabaş: "Sedef Kabaş is now free 🙏".

Today, a #Turkish #court has ordered the release of #journalist @SedefKabas who was jailed on Jan 22, 2022 on charges of "Insulting" the #President #Erdogan. (1/5)
On the oppositional TV channel @Tele1 she first quoted and then tweeted this Circassian proverb:

"A bull does not become king just by entering the palace, but the palace becomes a barn." (2/5)

This was taken by #Erdogan's propaganda chief Fahrettin Altun and the #Erdogan-dependent #Turkish judicial system as an insult to #President #Erdogan, who's an #autocrat, whereupon she was arrested. (3/5)…

⚖️ LEGAL LOOKOUT 1: We’ve read with interest the amicus brief below filed by 24 health policy experts in the @texmed v. @HHSGov lawsuit, as we filed one, too.

We respect and cherish the fact that everyone party to a significant #policy debate like this one over #regulatory implementation of the #NoSurprisesAct has a voice.

But, a question to @RonaldKlain, @SecBecerra, and

@BrooksLaSureCMS: How can you reconcile the fact that the administration’s #regulations rely on these bankrolled academics and experts while also claiming that these regulations help #patients and our #healthcare system? This is an alternative reality.

It's first time, China Securities Investor Services Center (ISC) filed as plaintiff in representative of investors.

ISC, a non-profit financial institution and is under the direct administration of the China Securities Regulatory Commission (CSRC).

Notice the murky status of non-profits. Its website ends with, which for English readers may thought as for-profit companies.

China skeptics are right to be skeptical as ISC directly administered by CSRC (China's SEC), a govt entity.

🧮 @bluevirginia has published lies about TJ, USA’s No1 high school, leading to the purge of Asians from the STEM school. Looks like they could use a little remedial math ⬇️ 🤦🏻‍♀️ @coalitionforTJ @PacificLegal go to court TODAY 10 AM to fight for equal rights + the American Dream!
June 7, 2020, @bluevirginia reported “ZERO African Americans” admitted to TJ. Tell that to @HarryJ4Justice whose son, who is black, was admitted. Washington Post reporter @hannah_natanson repeated the lie, days later. When I corrected her, she tweeted a “clarification.”
The very day of the @bluevirginia big lie, TJ principal Ann Bonitatibus, who is white, sent TJ’s mostly minority immigrant parents + students an offensive “call to action” to check their “privileges,” consider nixing the Colonial mascot and, oh, set RACE GOALS for admissions

On Monday, two Good Shepherd Collective members headed to #Ofer #military court & #prison to stand in #solidarity with Sami Huraini of Youth Of Sumud / شباب صمود and his family on the day of his trial.
Although we were unable to join Sami in the #courtroom, we sat with his family and dozens of other #Palestinians awaiting their family members, imprisoned and/or awaiting #prosecution in the #military #court system.
In Sami’s case, his trial was postponed, granting momentary relief despite a continuation of the bail conditions which prevent him from participating in #protests—essentially, keeping him from exercising his most basic right to #free speech and #resistance to #oppression.
