JPMorgan, Deutsche Bank ordered to face lawsuits over Jeffrey Epstein ties

JPMorgan and Deutsche Bank face lawsuitsA U.S. judge said on Monday JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N) and Deutsche Bank AG (DBKGn.DE) must face lawsuits accusing them of enabling Jeffrey Epstein's sex trafficking.

The decision by U.S. District Judge Jed Rakoff in Manhattan could expose the banks to additional financial and reputational damage for keeping Epstein as a client, even after the late financier registered as a sex offender.

In a six-paragraph order, Rakoff said JPMorgan must face a lawsuit by the U.S. Virgin Islands accusing it of missing red flags about Epstein's abuse of women on Little St. James, a private island he owned there.


Youngkin calls for patience in Otieno murder case

Black patient dies in police custody

Gov. Glenn Youngkin plans to watch a videotape showing the last moments of Irvo Otieno’s life, he told reporters Monday in Richmond.

Youngkin called for the public’s patience after seven Henrico County sheriff’s deputies and three Central State Hospital employees were charged with second-degree murder in Otieno’s death.

“There is a judicial process going on and we have to fully respect that, and I ask everybody to please fully respect it,” Youngkin said. “We also can just see the heart-wrenching nature of the challenges in our behavioral health system.”

Youngkin said the incident further demonstrates the need for a major mental health system overhaul. In January, the governor announced a 3-year plan to funnel $230 million into behavioral healthcare — which hinges on the General Assembly finalizing the state budget.


Fatal shootings on Miami Beach's famed Ocean Drive prompt city to impose spring break curfew

Miami Beach imposes curfew

In what's appearing to be an annual spring break ritual, Miami Beach, Florida, officials are imposing a curfew after two fatal shootings and rowdy crowds this weekend.

The two separate shootings Friday night and early Sunday on the popular Ocean Drive that left two people dead and “excessively large and unruly crowds” led to the decision, the release said. City officials didn't provide further information when contacted by USA TODAY Sunday.

This is the third consecutive year that this South Florida vacation destination with more than 81,000 residents and traditionally favored among spring breakers has declared a curfew and state of emergency.

Last year, the city imposed a midnight curfew following two shootings that left five people injured. In 2021, there were more than 1,000 arrests and dozens of guns confiscated during a rowdy spring break leading Miami Beach officials to order an emergency curfew.


Maryland House Passes Bill Requiring Gender-Affirming Care Under Medicaid

Md. House of Delegates

Maryland’s House of Delegates passed a bill on Saturday that would expand the state’s Medicaid program to cover gender-affirming procedures for transgender, intersex, nonbinary, two-spirit and all other gender-diverse people.

The Trans Health Equity Act, HB0283, would play an important role in ensuring that low-income transgender Maryland residents on Medicaid can have access to hormone therapy, puberty blockers, hair alterations, surgeries on the face and other parts of the body along with several other gender-affirming procedures that are often covered by private insurance.

According to data from the Williams Institute at the University of California, Los Angeles, 24,000 Maryland residents are transgender, and 6,000 are enrolled in Medicaid. In 2022, 98 transgender Maryland residents got gender-affirming care through Medicaid.


Florida GOP bill would ban girls from talking about their periods in school

Stan MclainAs local bills on gender, sexuality and diversity make their way through Florida’s state legislature, new legislation would ban any discussion of menstrual cycles in school before sixth grade.

That breaks from the advice of medical providers who recommend talking to children about puberty and changes in their bodies before they occur.

First periods typically start between ages 10 and 15, but can begin as young as 9 years old. That means a student could likely be in third grade up to tenth grade, or later, when a period begins.

During a subcommittee hearing in the Florida House on Wednesday, Republican state Rep. Stan McClain said his bill would include restrictions on girls talking about their menstrual cycles.


Mother raises $41K to exhume, autopsy remains of son found dead near Murdaugh estate in 2015

Body of teen to be exhumed

The unsolved murder mystery received new life in July 2021, when the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division opened a new investigation into Smith's homicide, "based upon information gathered during the course of the double murder investigation of Paul and Maggie Murdaugh."

With the spotlight dimming on Alex Murdaugh, the Smith family feels its time to shine some new light on their murder case. A GoFundMe drive has been started to raise money for an exhumation and independent autopsy of Stephen Smith's remains.

On March 10, Sandy Smith organized a GoFundMe page to raise funds for the exhumation and independent autopsy.

The fundraising goal was $15,000 – but in only a week, that page states it has raised $41,034.


DOJ asks SCOTUS to review ruling that overturned firearm ban for those with domestic violence restraining orders

DOJ asks SCOTUS to review recall of ban on guns ok for vviolators of domestic violence

The Department of Justice (DOJ) has asked the Supreme Court to review an appeals court ruling that overturned a federal law banning those under domestic violence restraining orders from possessing firearms.

The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in February that the law was no longer constitutional based on the Supreme Court’s decision last June in New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, which found that gun regulations had to be consistent with the country’s historical tradition.

The DOJ filed its petition with the high court on a “highly expedited schedule” — citing the “significant disruptive consequences” of the appeals court ruling — in an effort to allow the court to consider the petition before it recesses for the summer.
