Some inmates have managed to escape these facilities or bring in contraband, Horowitz said. In a memo on security at federal prisons, Horowitz described the escape of four inmates from the Beaumont site. It said the inmates managed to escape for more than 12 hours by placing dummies in their beds to make it look like they were in their cells or by having fellow inmates pose as them. The report did not identify the inmates or specify the date of the incident or how many dummies were used. "Gaps in security at federal prison camps and satellite prison camps present risks that inmates will escape and, if they return, smuggle contraband back into facilities undetected, which endangers the community," he said.

The order prevented executives from disclosing the government's efforts even to the executive editor, Dean Baquet, and other newsroom leaders, it said. The battle was over an effort by the Justice Department to seize email logs from Google (GOOGL.O), which operates the Times's email system and had resisted the effort to obtain the information, the report said. The Times reported on Wednesday that the Trump administration secretly seized phone records of four reporters spanning nearly four months in 2017 as part of a leak investigation.

Biden Ramps Up Fight Against Corruption

The Biden administration in April said it would seek to boost the budget of the Treasury’s Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, or FinCEN, which is building the new database. The Treasury also will take additional steps to stop the purchase of real estate in the U.S. with proceeds from corruption, the Biden administration official said. The Biden administration’s new anticorruption push could lead to a broader focus among federal prosecutors on corruption and bribery. In 2010, the Justice Department launched the Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative, a program under which prosecutors use civil forfeiture laws to seize and recover proceeds of foreign corruption. “What we may be seeing is a shift away from supply-side corruption enforcement, which is the FCPA, to the broader demand-side,” said Nathaniel Edmonds, a former prosecutor and a partner at the law firm Paul Hastings LLP.

REUTERS/Tom Brenner/File PhotoWASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department on Friday asked a federal judge to dismiss a lawsuit filed against former President Donald Trump, former Attorney General William Barr and other officials over the forceful pushing back of peaceful protesters at a White House demonstration last year, the Washington Post reported. Trump and other U.S. officials should be considered immune from civil lawsuits over police actions taken to protect a president and to secure his movements, the Justice Department lawyers said, according to the Post. Federal agents on horseback used tear gas to clear the protesters from Lafayette Square near the White House. The sweep allowed Trump to stage a photo opportunity at a nearby church in which he held up a copy of the Bible. The lawsuit sought an order declaring that Trump, Barr and other officials violated the constitutional rights of the demonstrators.

A Florida jury late Friday sided with 3M Co. in a case alleging the company’s earplugs caused a veteran’s hearing problems, the first defense win for the company in burgeoning litigation around the earplugs. The defense win comes in the second case to go to trial out of more than 230,000 similar claims alleging 3M knowingly sold faulty earplugs to branches of the military for decades. The first trial ended with a $7.1 million verdict for three veterans who blamed the earplugs for hearing loss and tinnitus, or a ringing in the ears. 3M stopped selling the earplugs in 2015 and has stood by the safety of the product. The judge selected plaintiffs for three so-called bellwether trials, which will help give both sides a sense of how juries react to the claims.
