Supreme Court won't block Texas photo ID law — yet

Voter ID law in Texas upheldThe Supreme Court refused Friday to block Texas' photo ID law, the strictest in the nation, from remaining in effect for now, but it left open the possibility of doing so this summer if a lower court challenge remains unresolved.

Civil rights groups who say the law discriminates against black and Hispanic voters had argued that it should be blocked because it was struck down by a federal court in 2014 and a three-judge appeals court panel last year. The full U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit will hear the case next month.

Workers Say T-Mobile Created A Fake Union To Kill The Real One

Workers say T-Mobile created false unionOne of the largest cell phone carriers in America is trying to derail a years-long campaign to organize tens of thousands of workers by creating a fake in-house union, Communication Workers of America (CWA) officials say.

Union leaders are accusing T-Mobile of co-opting worker dissatisfaction through a new internal organization it calls T-Voice. The group functions as “a direct line for Frontline feedback to senior leadership,” according to an internal email obtained by Bloomberg’s Josh Eidelson. But management selects the workers who serve as part of T-Voice, and has allegedly pointed to the group as a reason not to unionize during captive-audience meetings with employees.

Les WaasFor the millions who grew up in the northeast over the past 50 years, it was the sound of summer.

More than the roar of the waves at the beach, more than the sounds of baseball and more than the yells of children playing in the street, summer was utterly defined by the iconic jingle of an approaching Mister Softee ice cream truck.

Les Waas, the advertising legend and part-time prankster who wrote the jingle, died earlier this month at the age of 94.

NCAA takes firmer stance against LGBT discrimination with new championship process

NCAA vote on Final Four citiesIn an effort to protect its teams and their respective fanbases from discrimination — particularly to those in the LGBT community — in states such as North Carolina, the NCAA has implemented an anti-discrimination process for championship bids, the organization announced on Wednesday following its quarterly meeting in Indianapolis.

"Well, it's a step in the right direction," Pat Griffin, professor emerita at the University of Massachusetts and a leading advocate for the LGBT movement told USA TODAY Sports on Wednesday in response to the NCAA's updated process.

Oklahoma court: Oral sex not rape if victim unconscious from alcohol

Oral sex not rape on unconscious victim- An Oklahoma court has shocked local prosecutors by ruling that, according to state law, oral sex with an unconscious victim is not rape.

The state's criminal appeals court made the unanimous ruling late last month, setting off fierce opinions about how many of the country's laws have troublingly antiquated ideas about rape.

The ruling stems from a 2014 case of a 17-year-old boy allegedly assaulting a 16-year-old girl after offering to drive the girl -- who witnesses said was drunk and unconscious -- to her grandmother's house.
