mexican human rights group national commission for human rights on wednesday accused [press release, pdf, in spanish] mexican police and federal troops in the extrajudicial killing of two alleged fuel thieves. “the scene was manipulated by placing high-caliber firearms beside the bodies,” claims the statement. “a crime, even one that was not yet proved, was matched with another crime.”the military has assisted mexican police for over a decade as a result of growing violence due to the drug trade, but has been accused [jurist report] of many human rights abuses during the detainment of suspects, leading even to un condemnation [executive summary, pdf].passed by the mexican senate last december, the internal security law [text, pdf, in spanish] vastly expands powers to federal troops operating in a domestic security capacity against the drug trade. this law has created controversy by decreasing oversight to security forces, but it will not be implemented until the supreme court confirms it later this year.a 2016 un office of human rights press release [text] claims that “impunity [in law enforcement] and the lack of accountability for violations of the right to life remain a serious challenge, as does the absence of reparations for the victims,” in response to the outcry from relatives of civilians killed in extrajudicial killings.

amnesty: egypt an 'open-air prison' for critics - jurist - news
amnesty international (ai) [advocacy website] launched a new campaign [ai backgrounder] tuesday called “egypt: open air prison for critics,” to raise awareness of the current situation in egypt under president abdel fattah el-sisi [al jazeera profile], who came to power after the 2013 coup.in 2013, amid political turmoil, many protests erupted calling for then-president mohamed morsi to step down. in response to the protests, el-sisi gave morsi a 48-hour timeframe to give in to the demands of the people and call for an early election to appoint a replacement. however, on july 3, 2013, el-sisi issued a statement [transcript] in which then-general el-sisi announced the overthrow of morsi, suspended the egyptian constitution and appointed the chief justice of the egyptian constitutional court as the interim president until elections could be held. he concluded his statement by stating:a technocrat, capable national government will be formed; [a] committee will offer all its expertise to review the new constitution; [t]he supreme constitutional law will address the draft law and prepare for parliamentary elections; securing and guaranteeing freedom of expression, freedom of media. all necessary measures will be taken to empower youth so they can take part in decision-making processes.critics have noted that rather than enforcing peace and the freedom of expression in the country, el-sisi undertook to outlaw any support for those politically affiliated with morsi and arrestted...

federal appeals court revives lawsuit brought by tipped employees - jurist - news
the us court of appeals for the ninth circuit [official website] on tuesday overturned [opinion, pdf] a district court judge’s dismissal of a lawsuit filed by server and bartender employees alleging they were paid “tipped” wages for performing non-tipped duties in violation of the fair labor standards act (flsa) [materials].under the “dual jobs” provision of the flsa, employers are permitted to pay tipped-wages to employees performing both tipped and non-tipped tasks. the lawsuit charges the employers for violating that provision, saying that:[e]mployers abused the tip credit provision by paying them a reduced tip credit wage and treating them as tipped employees when they were engaged in either (1) non-tipped tasks unrelated to serving and bartending, such as cleaning toilets; or (2) non-incidental tasks related to serving or bartending, such as hours spent cleaning and maintaining soft drink dispensers in excess of 20% of the workweek.based on the district court’s reading of the dual jobs provision, it dismissed the lawsuit, saying that the employees were fairly paid in accordance with the flsa. the department of labor (dol), however, had previously ruled that the provision permitted such wage allocation, so long as the cumulative amount equals at least minimum wage, and so long as the non-tipped activities do not exceed 20 percent of the employees time throughout the workweek.the appeals court overruled the district court’s decision, saying that the plaintiff...

supreme court allows lawsuit requiring more disclosure from super pacs to proceed - jurist - news
the us supreme court [official website] on tuesday denied [text, pdf] an application to block a federal judge’s decision requiring more disclosure from super pacs.the decision vacates chief justice john roberts’ order to stay the lower court ruling. the petitioner, crossroads grassroots policy strategies, a conservative political action committee, submitted the application [text, pdf] to stay the district court’s order, arguing that requiring it to disclose information in accordance with the district court judge’s interpretation of the federal election commission (fec) regulation would be overly burdensome and violate constitutional protections: “the fec regulation implements a federal election law provision that balances first amendment privacy for donors and groups—including section 501(c)(4) nonprofit organizations like crossroads—that are not political committees but engage in limited activities that address matters of public concern near elections.”in response [text, pdf], citizens for responsibility and ethics in washington (crew) said the regulation is not ambiguous, thus crossroads should be required to disclose additional information about political contributions:at the heart of crossroads’s request is its desire to avoid compliance with its unambiguous disclosure obligations under the federal election campaign act (“feca”), a request that, if granted, would do immeasurable damage to the american people by “depriving the electorate of don...

federal judge rules us officials cannot deny passport application based on refusal to select gender marker - jurist - news
a judge for the us district court for the district of colorado [official website] ruled [order, pdf] wednesday that us officials may not deny the passport application of an intersex individual based on the individual’s refusal to select a male or female gender marker.in september 2014 dana alix zzyym applied for a us passport. instead of checking the box for male or female on the application form, they wrote “intersex” underneath the category. they also sent a letter informing us department of state authorities that they were neither female nor male and requested that the letter “x” be used in the sex field of the passport. the application was denied, and dana brought a lawsuit, stating that the denial of their application and the underlying binary-only gender policy causing the denial were violations of the administrative procedure act (apa). dana also claimed that the denial and policy behind it were a violation of their due process and equal protection rights under the constitution.the department offered five reasons for the binary-only gender policy, and the judge found that all of these reasons failed to show rational decision making, making them arbitrary and capricious. after making this finding, the judge also found that in denying the application, the department acted “beyond its authority in denying the option for a non-binary gender option on the passport application.” the judge reasoned that “[b]ecause neither the passport act nor any other law a...

eu court rules 'brexit' does not nullify british man's charges in eu - jurist - news
the european court of justice (ecj) [official website] ruled [judgment] wednesday that a british man charged with murder, rape and arson in the eu must still face trial although brexit will nullify most other legal bonds his country shares with the eu.the british national, identified as only “ro” in court documents, allegedly committed murder, rape and arson in 2016 before the brexit vote and faced eu warrants. he is presently serving time in irish prison after a conviction for crimes in that member state, but he has yet to face trial in eu courts.“ro” appealed the warrants with a claim that brexit, which will occur in march 2019, would not allow him to face conviction in european courts, but wednesday’s ruling concluded that “mere notification by a member state of its intention to withdraw from the european union … does not have the effect of suspending the application of eu law.”a press release [text, pdf] accompanying the decision reaffirms that “the court emphasises that the united kingdom is party to the european convention for the protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms and that its continuing participation in that convention is not linked to its being a member of the eu.”as a result, “ro” will face trial for the warrants against him in european courts.

federal judge allows georgia to continue with touchscreen voting - jurist - news
judge amy totenberg of the us district court for the northern district of georgia [official website] ruled [opinion, pdf] monday that georgia will be permitted to go forward with the use of its electronic voting machines, despite security warnings from voting technology experts.the ruling comes in a 2017 lawsuit filed by georgia voters and election security organizations who argued that the current machines used in georgia, called direct-recording electronic (dre) voting machines, were untrustworthy, insecure, and vulnerable to “malicious intrusion and manipulation of the system and voter data by nation states and cyber savvy individuals.”totenberg found that the plaintiffs had presented sufficient evidence that their votes cast on the dre machines may be “altered, diluted, or effectively not counted on the same terms as someone using another voting method” but that “the eleventh-hour timing of their motions and an instant grant of the paper ballot relief requested could just as readily jeopardize the upcoming elections, voter turnout, and the orderly administration of the election.totenberg allowed georgia to continue to use the machines due to time constraints and concerns of “voter frustration and disaffection” so close to the november election but urged the state to be prepared for 2020.“defendants will fail to address that reality if they demean as paranoia the research-based findings of national cybersecurity engineers and experts in the field of electio...

federal judge upholds dismissal of lawsuit challenging illinois abortion funding law - jurist - news
illinois’ fourth district appellate court upheld [opinion, pdf] a lower court’s dismissal of a lawsuit challenging an illinois law [text, pdf] that allocates funding for abortions for government employees and individuals on medicaid.several pro-life organizations filed the lawsuit [text, pdf] in 2017, saying the law, house bill 40, violated the balanced budget requirement of the illinois constitution because the general assembly had not appropriated the money to cover the costs imposed by the bill. effectively, the law “reversed the prohibition on funding elective abortions by the state’s medicaid and employee health insurance programs and mandated coverage by medicaid for all ‘reproductive health care that is otherwise legal.'”the lower court judge dismissed the lawsuit in november, saying primarily that, under the political-question doctrine, it did not have authority to determine if “the general assembly failed to appropriate funds and adopt a revenue estimate to cover the cost of services under hb 40.” the pro-life organizations appealed [text, pdf] the order in december.the appellate court upheld the lower court’s dismissal, saying the constitution does not include “language imposing an obligation on the general assembly to develop a revenue estimate.” further, even if there was such a requirement, it would be the legislature’s job to determine if the funds had been estimated and apportioned.
