AdvertisementUkraine's increasing ammunition struggles have hamstrung its war effort, forcing the country to sacrifice long-term strategy for short-term certainty. Russia has maintained an advantage in artillery ammunition since the war began nearly two years ago. That advantage has only increased in recent months as Ukraine struggles to gain an edge against Russia's growing momentum. Much of the focus on ammunition for both Russia and Ukraine comes from old Soviet war doctrine, which is artillery-centric, Miles said.

In December, a jury ordered Rudy Giuliani to pay $148 million for defaming election workers. AdvertisementThese extraordinary judgments are the result of a combination of factors, but social media plays a major role, legal experts said. While in the past, high-profile figures may have been less willing to make defamatory statements, social media can actually provide an incentive for them to do so. Jones also stood to gain from spreading conspiracy theories about the Sandy Hook shooting, according to Mattei. Lieb added it's not that any statement made on social media will automatically carry major consequences, but that the size of the person's audience makes a huge difference.

A federal jury ordered Donald Trump to pay E. Jean Carroll $83.3 million in damages on Friday. During the defamation trial, Trump and his attorney appeared to frequently frustrate the presiding judge. The jury deliberated for under three hours before delivering their verdict, which included $18.8 million in compensatory damages and $65 million in punitive damages for Carroll. Juries tend to grow attached to their presiding trial judge, Jones said, adding that they often come to see the judge as a protector of sorts. The $83.3 million in damages are on top of $5 million in damages Carroll won during the May 2023 trial.
