Supreme Court rules in favor of Biden administration in Navajo water case

(CNN) — The Supreme Court on Thursday ruled against the Navajo Nation, dismissing a lawsuit arguing that the federal government has the legal duty under treaties signed in the 1800s to develop a plan to provide the tribe with an adequate water supply.

The ruling was 5-4 against the Navajos with Justice Brett Kavanaugh delivering the opinion of the court. Justice Neil Gorsuch, filed a dissenting opinion joined by the court’s liberal justices.

The suit pitted the Navajo Nation against the US government as well as a handful of western states that are concerned about water allocation.

Kavanaugh wrote that the case was not whether the United States has interfered with water access for the tribe, but whether a treaty required the US to take concrete steps — such as potentially building pumps, wells or other water infrastructure to facilitate better access.

Alan Grayson files for U.S. Senate run in 2024 against Rick Scott

Source: Florida Politics

Former U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson appears poised to make another run for U.S. Senate.

The Orlando Democrat filed to challenge U.S. Sen. Rick Scott, a Naples Republican running for a second term.

There remains no mention of a new candidacy on Grayson’s social media pages. His last posts date back to a run for U.S. House last year, when he lost the Democratic Primary in Florida’s 10th Congressional District to now-U.S. Rep. Maxwell Alejandro Frost.

Grayson has run for Senate before. He vacated his U.S. House seat in 2016 to run against U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio. But he didn’t have support at the time from party leadership. Then-Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid lambasted Grayson as having “no moral compass” and said he wanted the Orlando Democrat to lose the Democratic Primary. That wish came true in August 2016, when Grayson lost the nomination to then-U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy. Murphy went on to lose to Rubio.

Rebekah Jones to serve 1-year probation for 2019 cyberstalking charge

LEON COUNTY, Fla. -- Former Democratic congressional candidate Rebekah Jones will serve a year of probation after pleading no contest to a cyberstalking charge on Wednesday, stemming from a 2019 criminal investigation where a man allegedly accused Jones of posting naked pictures of him online.

Jones, who was defeated by current Northwest Florida Congressman Matt Gaetz in the 2022 election, was arrested and charged with cyberstalking back in 2019 for allegedly posting "revenge porn" of a man she believed to be the father of her child, according to an warrant affidavit.

According to a warrant affidavit, Jones posted nude pictures of the victim on his employer's Instagram, in addition to sharing them with his family and friends.

Jones began posting the pictures online after a temporary injunction filed by the victim expired back in 2019, according to a warrant affidavit.

Supreme Court sides with cement mixing company over striking workers in latest blow to unions

Source: CNN

The Supreme Court on Thursday sided with a cement mixing company that seeks to bypass federal labor law and sue a union in state court for the destruction of property caused by striking workers.

The court said the dispute could continue in state court for now, a move that could chill workers’ decisions to strike for fear that unions would now have to face potentially costly litigation in state court for misconduct during federally protected strikes.

The union argued that the case should be handled by an independent federal agency that investigates allegations of wrongdoing, and that the union should not have to face costly state litigation.

The case had been closely watched by supporters of unions who have witnessed the conservative majority in recent years chip away their power.
