Defense lawyers and at least one federal judge have warned the delays may be infringing on defendants’ rights to speedy trials. New video evidence was unearthed against Robert Reeder, of Maryland, the morning that he was scheduled to be sentenced on misdemeanor charges. That led prosecutors to postpone the sentencing to determine if they would pursue additional felony charges based on the new evidence. The Washington Department of Corrections said in a statement that it has “a several-weeks-long waitlist” for inmates to access evidence. Julian Khater, who is charged with assaulting Capitol Police, was in jail almost seven months before he was given access to the video evidence, said his attorney Chad Seigel.

Without a process to track police misconduct, prosecutors often don’t know when they are relying on testimony from compromised officers, undermining their trials and the trustworthiness of their cases. Prosecutors need to be better informed about which police officers have engaged in misconduct to prevent those officers from being involved in their cases. Unfortunately, most prosecutors don’t track police misconduct in an organized, systematic way. Instead, prosecutors should use their police disclosure lists to identify highly problematic officers and prohibit them from testifying. Prosecutors should also have access to the police disclosure lists in neighboring jurisdictions.

Navistar must purchase and destroy enough older diesel engines to prevent 10,000 tons of future NOx emissions, the Justice Department said, and forfeit its current NOx credits. Navistar said it had signed "a definitive settlement agreement" with the Justice Department and the EPA. The Justice Department alleged that in 2010, after lower emission standards went into effect, Navistar introduced into commerce 7,749 diesel engines that did not meet the lower emission standards. A U.S. court held that the Navistar engines were in fact model-year 2010 engines and required to be covered by a 2010 certificate demonstrating compliance with the lower emission requirements, the Justice Department said. Navistar's mitigation of NOx emissions must take into consideration "geographic diversity and benefits to communities that are overburdened by air pollution," Starfield added.

"I'm a climate change activist, and I talk about climate change all the time, but you have to meet people where they are." Some activists have begun to argue that a wider proportion of Americans are amenable to policies that combat climate change if you talk less about "climate change" — because the issue has become so polarized — and more about the specific impact on jobs, the economy and the environment. Instead of climate change, he talks about air quality, forest fires and the impact of decreasing snowpack from warmer winters on ski resorts in his district. It's a message Biden has emphasized at times, too, such as his saying in his joint address to Congress this year, "When I think climate change, I think jobs." Sabine Marx, the director of research for the National Center for Disaster Preparedness at Columbia University's Earth Institute, has described the approach as "leading to" climate change, rather than "leading with" climate change.

Rep. Paul Gosar offered protest organizers a "blanket pardon" to motivate them to plan rallies on Jan. 6, reported Rolling Stone. Gosar told the organizers he had spoken with former President Donald Trump about the pardons, which were never realized. Both organizers have been speaking with the congressional committee investigating the US Capitol riots, per Rolling Stone, and were kept anonymous. "They were working on submitting the paperwork and getting members of the House Freedom Caucus to sign on as a show of support," the organizer told Rolling Stone. "I would have done it either way with or without the pardon," the organizer told Rolling Stone.

A school district in Utah ignored “serious and widespread” racial harassment for years, failing to respond to complaints from Black and Asian American students who were called racial slurs and physically assaulted by their peers, according to an investigation by the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division. The investigation, which focused on reports from 2015 to 2020, found more than 200 examples of racial harassment in the predominantly white Davis School District north of Salt Lake City, the Justice Department said. Black students were disciplined more harshly and frequently than white students, the investigation found, and Black students were denied opportunities to form student groups. Complaints about such treatment were frequently ignored or brushed off, leading the Justice Department to conclude that the district “was deliberately indifferent to the racially hostile climate in many of its schools.”The report was published last week as the Justice Department announced that it had reached a settlement with the district. Under the terms of the settlement, the district agreed to create a new department to handle complaints of racial discrimination; to train its staff members to identify and respond to complaints; to teach students how to report harassment; and to offer training to students, employees and parents to help them identify and prevent racial discrimination in its schools.

Ahead of sentencing, Lori Vinson tearfully asked the judge for leniency, citing her new job as a nurse and her work helping patients with COVID-19, according to CNN. "I took that oath to the Constitution and I know I broke that oath that day by entering that building and participating in the events of January 6," Thomas Vinson reportedly said.

The Stockholm-based company received correspondence from the U.S. Justice Department stating that the company had breached the agreement by failing to provide certain documents and information related to the settlement. Ericsson said it would continue to cooperate with the Justice Department and would have the opportunity to respond to the department’s letter. The company in 2019 entered into a deal with the Justice Department to resolve allegations of bribery that stretched between 2000 and 2016 that the agency said occurred in Djibouti, China, Vietnam, Kuwait and Indonesia. The Justice Department has occasionally issued public warnings about the consequences of violating the terms of a deferred prosecution agreement, but such breaches are rare. The letter to Ericsson comes after a senior Justice Department official earlier in October said that breaching such agreements could lead to punishment more severe than was originally agreed to.
