(CNN) Music producer and convicted murderer Phil Spector died of natural causes on Saturday at the age of 80, according to a statement released by the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation. An official cause of death will be determined by the medical examiner for San Joaquin County. Spector was convicted of second-degree murder and sentenced to 19 years to life in prison in 2009 for the 2003 fatal shooting of actress Lana Clarkson. The actress was found slumped over in a chair at Spector's California mansion with a gunshot wound through the roof of her mouth. Spector, who was originally from Bronx, New York, produced recordings by stars including The Beatles, Ike and Tina Turner, Cher and the Ramones.

We had hope.”New York City, once the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic in the U.S., has been plagued by vaccine distribution stumbles, just like nearly every part of the country. From supply shortages to registration issues, a string of mishaps have impaired rollout efforts across the five boroughs. “I’m telling you at this rate, there will not be any doses available in New York by next week,” he said. More than 337,000 doses have been administered in New York City so far, according to the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene. Mount Sinai said this week that they were forced to cancel some vaccination appointments because of low supply.

Falsely accusing someone of being gay is no longer considered defamation per se, a New York appeals court ruled recently. Defamation per se is a false accusation that is so damaging that plaintiffs don’t have to prove that they suffered damages. Under New York law, examples of defamation per se include falsely accusing someone of a heinous crime or having a “loathsome disease.” Falsely claiming that someone is homosexual had also been lumped in. “It took a long time for New York law to catch up to where we were public-policy wise,” he said. Several courts have ruled similarly to New York’s Second Department since that landmark 2003 ruling.

Kena Betancur | AFP | Getty ImagesGUANGZHOU, China — Sellers on the so-called dark web have been putting out an increasing number of advertisements for Covid-19 vaccines, asking for bitcoin as payment and not delivering the goods, according to cybersecurity firm Check Point. Check PointThe average median price tag of $250 for an unspecified vaccine dose has now doubled or quadrupled to $500, or even up to $1000, Check Point said. Researchers from the cybersecurity firm placed an order for a vaccine dose from a vendor that they contacted on encrypted messaging app Telegram. All the listings for vaccines required bitcoin for payment, Check Point said. Check Point said the surge in vaccine ads could be due to people not wanting to wait for one.

New York City is terminating its contracts with the Trump Organization because of the mob riot at the U.S. Capitol, Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Wednesday. The contracts are for two ice-skating rinks at Central Park, the Central Park Carousel and the Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point, a city-owned golf course in the Bronx. Mr. de Blasio said he was ending the relationship because President Trump had incited violence. “Inciting an insurrection against the U.S. government clearly constitutes criminal activity,” Mr. de Blasio said in an interview on MSNBC on Wednesday. “The City of New York will no longer have anything to do with the Trump Organization.”While the city has considered canceling the Trump Organization’s contracts before, Mr. de Blasio said the violence in Washington qualified as criminal activity under which New York City had the right to sever ties with a company.

New York City is investigating whether it can cancel its contracts with the Trump Organization after last week’s deadly riot at the U.S. Capitol, Mayor Bill de Blasio said on Tuesday. Mr. de Blasio, who has repeatedly accused President Trump of provoking the violent siege, said his legal team was assessing the city’s options. “We are looking at that very, very carefully and very quickly,” Mr. de Blasio said when asked about the contracts at a news conference. “The president incited a rebellion against the United States government — clearly an unconstitutional act and people died. That’s unforgivable.”It is not the first time the city has examined the Trump Organization’s contracts with the city, which include two ice skating rinks at Central Park, the Central Park Carousel and the Trump Golf Links at Ferry Point, a city-owned golf course in the Bronx.
