Washington must find rooms for homeless families out in cold: judge

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 03:34
By Tom Ramstack WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A judge on Monday ordered the District of Columbia to provide homeless families private rooms when temperatures drop below freezing instead of housing them in public recreation centers. The ruling by District of Columbia Superior Court Judge Robert Okun came in response to a lawsuit filed by a group of homeless people who said the housing offered by the United States capital placed their children in danger. Washington's financial burden is outweighed by the "psychological harm of the most vulnerable members of our society, the children of the homeless" if they are denied safe housing, the judge said. In some cases, the Washington families were put near recreation center basketball courts and separated from other homeless people and strangers by portable partitions.

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/25/2014 - 03:33

U.S. President Obama attends the opening session of the Nuclear Security summit in The HagueBy Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday considers whether business owners can object on religious grounds to a provision of President Barack Obama's healthcare law that requires employers to provide health insurance that covers birth control. In one of the biggest cases of the year, the nine justices will hear an extended 90-minute oral argument, with the extra 30 minutes the court added to the usual hour-long session hinting at the complexity of the legal issues involved. The case pits religious rights against reproductive rights, with a heavy dose of politics added to the mix. Even the main lawyers in the case, Solicitor General Donald Verrilli for the Obama administration and Paul Clement for the religious employers, are familiar names.

Arpaio and his top aide Chief Deputy Jerry Sheridan are required to appear before a federal judge who believes the two have mischaracterized and trivialized the judge's key findings in a racial-profiling decision issued in 2013 against the police agency. The sheriff's office will be required to provide answers Monday, March 24, 2014 to U.S. District Judge Murray Snow about an Oct. 18 training session in which the judge said Sheridan appears to suggest that rank-and-file deputies weren't obliged to make their best efforts to remedy the agency's constitutional violations. (AP Photo/Ross D.
