Mario Batali Steps Away From Restaurant Empire Following Sexual Misconduct Allegations

Mario Batalil accused by 4 womenAbout 10 years ago, at the after-party for a wine auction in New Orleans, a woman in her 20s walked up to Mario Batali to introduce herself. As a chef, she was excited to meet one of the most revered figures in the restaurant industry. When they started talking, she recalls, she realized that he’d been drinking and he became what she characterized as “creepy” — “just giving me this provocative, icky feeling.”

Minutes into their conversation, she recalls, he told her, “Come work for me, I’ll pay you double what you’re making.” Moments later, someone bumped her glass, spilling wine all over her chest and down her scooped-neck shirt. She alleges that Batali began rubbing her breasts with his bare hands while saying something like, “Let me help you with that,” as he groped her chest. “He just went to town, and I was so shocked,” the chef says. “Jaw on the ground, I just stepped back from him in utter disgust and walked away.”

Supreme Court blocks order for White House to disclose DACA documents

SCOTUS rules for administration against DACA documentsThe Supreme Court ruled late Friday that the Trump administration does not have to turn over documents connected to its decision to end a program that protects immigrants brought to the United States as children from deportation.

It was the second time in four days that the court has sided with the administration against immigration advocates, following Monday's order enabling Trump's travel ban to go into full effect while challenges work their way through the courts.

The latest order reverses action by lower courts in California that had required the government to produce documents in the case by Dec. 22.
