When a group of 21 kids sued the federal government a couple of years ago for failing to protect the country’s air, land and water, it didn’t seem likely to get very far. The case has survived several challenges, and on Monday, the group of youths -- now almost all teens -- and the Justice Department will argue over whether Americans can claim damaging environmental policy as a violation of their constitutional rights to due process and equal protection.
The legal battle over President Donald Trump’s travel ban resumes Friday in Richmond, Virginia, after a pit stop in Seattle, on an inevitable path back to the U.S. Supreme Court in Washington. Administration attorneys are set to ask a panel of judges at a regional appeals court to uphold the Sept. 24 proclamation that restricted travel to the U.S. from six nations -- Chad, Iran, Libya, Somalia, Venezuela and Yemen -- and blocked entry entirely from Syria and North Korea.
Four former engineers at Applied Materials Inc. were charged by the U.S. with trying to steal chip designs from the semiconductor equipment giant to sell them to a Chinese startup, which may fuel fears the world’s second-largest economy is resorting to illegal tactics to break its dependence on chip imports.
Justice Kozinski tells plaintiff that arguing the government's motion to dismiss as unprecedented undermines plaintiffs' argument. Seems to be setting himself apart from Chief Justice Thomas and Justice Berzon.
Panel appears at least somewhat irked at the timing of the government's request to dismiss the case. ``No one has issued an order,'' says justice Marsha Berzon.
Government's position is that ``accepting all of the allegations as true, the claims lack standing for a lawsuit.''
All three judges on panel open by questioning Justice Department attorney over why this case is worthy of interruption at this point? "Nothing's happened yet,' says Chief Judge Sidney Thomas.
Hearing is over government's motion to dismiss the climate change case.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
