America’s foremost attorney for far-right extremists wanted “a little gravy,” then lied to cover it up. That’s just part of his twisted journey through a lax legal system. By Luke O'Brien 12/27/2018 03:09 pm ET Updated 2 minutes ago One morning this June, a group of lawyers filed into the office of the State Bar of Nevada and closed the door. It was summer in Las Vegas, the morning temperature already nearing 100 degrees, but inside the low-slung tan building, the lawyers had a chilly question to address: what to do about one of their own. Marc Randazza had been a problem for years. Randazza, who represents conspiracy theorist Alex Jones and many other far-right extremists, had long relied on lawyer buddies to pump his public image. By their telling and his own, Randazza was a First Amendment “badass.” But he was a combative badass, even vicious, and he’d left a trail of bad blood and trampled ethics behind him. Randazza had … [Read more...] about Alex Jones’ Lawyer Violated Legal Ethics By Soliciting Porn Bribes. Just How Dirty Is Marc Randazza?

Christine Ferretti The Detroit News Published 5:05 PM EDT Sep 20, 2018 The state of Michigan might call on the National Guard to complete stalled roadwork amid a breakdown in talks aimed at lifting a lockout of road engineers. A spokesman for Gov. Rick Snyder raised the possibility Thursday in response to an ongoing rift between the union representing state road builders and an association for industry contractors. The Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association, or MITA, instituted a work stoppage for workers represented by the Operating Engineers Local 324 on Sept. 4 after multiple failed attempts to bargain a new contract with the union. A prior, five-year deal expired in June. The two sides had talked with the governor's staff this week in an attempt to get mediation going, but the union put out a statement Thursday claiming that a "handshake agreement" reached with the state and MITA had been pulled back, unraveling any hopes for progress. … [Read more...] about State considers using National Guard to finish stalled roadwork
Christine Ferretti The Detroit News Published 1:59 PM EDT Sep 19, 2018 Gov. Rick Snyder's office on Wednesday said it's working to bring an end to the "unacceptable standoff" between unionized road builders and industry contractors that's stalled road work projects throughout the state. The Michigan Infrastructure and Transportation Association instituted the work stoppage on Sept. 4 after multiple failed attempts to bargain a new contract with the Operating Engineers Local 324. A prior, five-year deal expired in June. The rift prompted the shutdown or partial halt of more than 150 road projects in southeast Michigan. "We are continuing to work with MITA and OE324 to find a way to get them back to work on the road projects quickly and end this unacceptable standoff," said Ari Adler, a spokesman for Snyder, in a Wednesday email to The Detroit News. Last week, Snyder urged the union and contractor association to resolve their differences and get the … [Read more...] about State aims to end ‘unacceptable standoff’ over road work
