Jane Doe' gun case to be heard in December
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - A federal appeals court is expected to hear arguments in December in a dispute about whether two young adults can remain anonymous in a challenge to a 2018 Florida gun law. The National Rifle Association filed the appeal last year after Chief U.S. District Judge Mark Walker rejected an attempt by two 19-year-olds, identified in court papers as Jane Doe and John Doe, to take part anonymously in the challenge to the gun law. But opponents have argued that allowing them to remain anonymous would hinder public access to court proceedings. The NRA later sought to add an Alachua County resident as a plaintiff and identify her as Jane Doe. It also sought to add to the case allegations related to another young adult identified as John Doe.
NYC pays $610,000 to woman forced to give birth in handcuffs
The lawsuit accused New York Police officers of unlawful use of restraints on a pregnant woman and several constitutional violations. The city of New York agreed to pay $610,000 to a woman whom police kept in shackles while she was in labor. At the hospital, doctors appealed to the officers to remove the restraints, saying they could endanger the woman and her child, the complaint said. After repeated protests from her doctors, the officers removed the shackles minutes before she gave birth, the complaint said. Co-counsel Ashok Chandran credited Montefiore physicians with advocating for the woman both in the moment and during the lawsuit.
