Eventually that barrier fell and McGuffey joined the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office in 1983. But the sheriff’s office still suspended her for five days without pay. In 2019, she declared her candidacy for sheriff of Hamilton County, which covers the southwestern corner of Ohio, including Cincinnati. She won the general election in November, becoming the first lesbian sheriff in Ohio history, according to the LGBTQ Victory Institute. The Covid-19 pandemic swept the state — including Hamilton County jails, the third-largest jail system in the state.

Eli Lilly logo is shown on one of the company's offices in San Diego, California, U.S., September 17, 2020.

Vrbo is appealing to Airbnb hosts with new programs and ad campaigns. "We have a muscle to continue to add hosts, but we can also convert guests to hosts. But Vrbo hasn't been shy about its desire to steal market share from — and attract hosts from — Airbnb. At the end of April, Vrbo released a series of ads that explicitly compared the brand with its biggest competitor, citing trends indicating that, in contrast to Airbnb, Vrbo guests are often larger groups looking for family getaways. The idea is to increase visibility for these new Vrbo hosts, while helping them to charge higher rates than hosts who are starting fresh.

Former CBS CEO Les Moonves, who left the media company in 2018 amid sexual harassment and assault allegations, has dropped an attempt to claim a $120 million severance award. CBS' board had hired Covington & Burling, along with Debevoise & Plimpton, to conduct an investigation into whether Moonves had violated the terms of his employment. "Leslie Moonves, CBS and a contractor to CBS have​ resolved their disputes," Moonves and ViacomCBS said in a joint statement. There will be no further comment regarding this settlement by Mr. Moonves or CBS." The CBS board determined in December 2018 that Moonves breached his contract and intentionally didn't cooperate with an internal investigation.

Armadas of trucks heading southeast from three major interstate highways all come together in Cincinnati to traverse the four southbound lanes of the Brent Spence. The bridge is part of a corridor that, according to one study, contains the second-most congested truck bottleneck in the United States, ranking behind Fort Lee, N.J., home to a perennially clogged interchange leading to the George Washington Bridge into Manhattan. “It’s all the trucks,” said Al Bernstein, who lives in Covington, the smaller city on the Kentucky side of the bridge, and whose wife refuses to drive over it. President Barack Obama made a speech in front of the bridge in 2011 as he pitched a major jobs and public works plan. “I remember when McConnell started becoming a big person in Washington, we were like, ‘Oh, this is great.

For decades, the law — originally designed to fight Nazi propaganda — was rarely enforced. "FARA is definitely having its moment in the spotlight now," said Robert Kelner, chairman of law firm Covington & Burling LLP's election and political law practice. Bettmann/Getty ImagesFARA was designed to fight Nazi propagandaPresident Franklin Roosevelt signed FARA into law in 1938 to "combat the spread of hidden foreign influence through propaganda in American politics." FARA's increased prominence is also a "product of our time" where there's "a fear of foreign influence in the United States across many fronts," Kelner said. Under the Trump administration, top Justice Department officials signaled that the department would more regularly turn to its civil authority to drive disclosures of foreign influence efforts.

Progressives say Biden has not nominated enough judges that have professional diversity. Biden's goal to promote professional diversity among appellate judges has elevated some candidates and torpedoed others. In terms of diversity, whether its racial, ethnic, gender, sexual orientation, or professional diversity, it is just simply not reflective of the diversity of America," she said. Dana Remus, now the White House counsel, reinforced the incoming Biden administration's commitment on professional diversity in a December letter to senators. But Rheingold said he remains confident in the Biden administration's interest in professional diversity in spite of his disappointment with the first slate.

Each day, some 160,000 cars and trucks cross the Brent Spence Bridge, which carries commuters and freight over the Ohio River between Cincinnati and Covington, Kentucky. Now it’s Biden’s turn, and the American Jobs Plan he unveiled last month has given Brent Spence boosters fresh optimism. The president’s proposal would fix the 10 “most economically significant bridges.” Brent Spence advocates cite a 2009 study that found hundreds of billions of dollars of freight crossed each year. “I am pushing to get the Brent Spence Bridge included in that infrastructure plan,” Kentucky Gov. "I can't imagine that somewhere in a multitrillion-dollar bill there wouldn't be money for the Brent Spence Bridge," McConnell said in Erlanger, Kentucky.

Starbucks said on Wednesday that it has resolved allegations from the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission about alleged racial bias in its employee promotions, based on data from 2007 through 2011. The agreement with the federal agency was disclosed in Starbucks' third annual Civil Rights Assessment from the law firm Covington & Burling. A Starbucks spokesperson said that the company was engaged in on-and-off dialogue with the EEOC before reaching the agreement earlier this year. Earlier in March, Starbucks promoted Dennis Brockman to the role of global chief inclusion and diversity officer.

At trial, Joplin testified that Kensu had enthusiastically described how he killed Macklem and constructed an “airtight” alibi to cover his tracks. According to testimony, detectives searched for evidence that Kensu hired a plane, including poring through airport and airline records in Escanaba and Port Huron. Ultimately, however, investigators never discovered any evidence that Kensu flew to Port Huron: no flight records, receipts, or witnesses. But when he tried to back out, an assistant prosecutor “exploded.”“He said ‘No, it’s too late for that man,’” Joplin said the assistant prosecutor told him, according to an interview transcript. Private investigators, including a retired detective from the Port Huron Police Department, also uncovered major revelations.

For example, the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., brought in $15.1 million in revenue in 2020 and the first three weeks of 2021, according to Trump’s disclosure. The circumstances were similar at Trump property in Las Vegas, which saw revenues decline 60.5% to $9.2 million and at his Florida golf course, Trump National Doral, revenue down 42.7% to $44.2 million. Revenue at that property, which Trump frequently used to host political allies and foreign dignitaries, climbed 13% year-on-year to reach $24.2 million. It also included a number of gifts Trump received as president, including an Ultimate Fight Championship belt, valued at $650, from Colby Covington, a Trump-friendly fighter.

Apple CEO Tim Cook gifted Trump a Mac Pro from a factory in Austin, Texas, worth $5,999. The former president and the Apple CEO enjoyed a close working relationship for most of Trump's tenure, with Cook calling Trump directly. David Enrich of The New York Times pointed out on Twitter that one of the gifts disclosed was a Mac Pro from Apple CEO Tim Cook, valued at $5,999. In the executive disclosures, the gift from Cook is recorded as "Mac Pro Computer, the first created at the Flex Factory in Austin Texas." However, the claim that it's the first Mac Pro manufactured at the facility is dubious.

While the Mac Pro is a costly gift, it's the baseline cost of the current 2020 model. All in, a Mac Pro can cost up to $62,571Cook and Trump had cultivated an unlikely relationship during Trump's presidency, from dinners to appearing with Ivanka Trump to promote education.

(Reuters) - While major corporations and some law firms stopped contributions to lawmakers after the deadly Jan. 6 siege of the U.S. Capitol, few of the legal industries’ most powerful political spenders have publicly taken similar steps. All ten firms gave to at least one of the Republican lawmakers who voted against certifying Biden’s election victory in the hours following the riot, according to OpenSecrets. The financial impact of law firm political contributions is “a drop in the bucket,” said Michael Miller, an assistant professor of political science at Barnard College, in an email. Squire Patton Boggs and Holland & Knight, which have substantial lobbying arms, froze all contributions, while Cozen O’Connor halted contributions to lawmakers who voted against certifying Biden’s victory. Neither did Nelson Mullins Riley & Scarborough and Maynard, Cooper & Gale, whose political action committees also rank among the top ten for law firms.
