It might be ironic that the new Chief Justice of India Ranjan Gogoi, who is generally perceived as reticent by the legal fraternity, has made the most ground breaking revelation regarding the administration of Supreme Court this year. His participation in the unprecedented judges’ press conference held in January 12 was by itself an act of fortitude, considering the fact that he was the next in line to be the Chief Justice of India, after the then CJI Dipak Misra. So the stakes was high for Justice Gogoi. Not only did he endorse the no-confidence expressed by the other three senior judges regarding the administration of Supreme Court under CJI Dipak Misra, he also gave an indication of the immediate … [Read more...] about What To Expect Of The New CJI Ranjan Gogoi?

The biggest test of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election begins Tuesday with the trial of Donald Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.The trial on Manafort's financial dealings will hang over the White House and show just how deeply federal authorities have looked into the private business of Trump associates.It comes as the President continues to rail against Mueller's investigation, calling it a "witch hunt," and some congressional Republicans are looking to impeach the Justice Department official overseeing the Muller probe, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.One year ago to the month, federal agents barged into Manafort's Alexandria, Virginia, apartment under a search warrant. They took dozens of hanging file folders, bank statements, discs, memory cards and computer hard drives, and a watch worth several thousand dollars from the design house Bijan -- much of that evidence will be on display for … [Read more...] about Paul Manafort: Trial for Trump’s former campaign manager begins today
Six years of college football that produced the most prolific statistics in history. Undrafted, released three times and traded once as a pro. Started and won a game six days after being signed off another team’s practice squad. Waited three weeks into 2017 free agency – an interminable time – before finding a new team. Threw the pass that delivered his team a miracle playoff win in January. Case Keenum has packed all of those experiences into a journey that started as a seventh-grade student in Abilene, Texas, and twisted and turned its way to Houston, St. Louis, Houston (again), St. Louis (again), Los Angeles, Minneapolis and now Denver. But when he walks onto the Broncos’ practice field Saturday morning, Keenum will encounter a new NFL experience, six years after entering the league. He will be the guy. Finally. He will be the leader. At last.Keenum, 30, is not keeping the spot warm until a rookie is ready, not competing against a fellow veteran for the … [Read more...] about After years bouncing around NFL, Case Keenum in new territory with Broncos
His office has given little indication of specific issues Macron will cover during his hour-long speech, though reforms of the pension system and a plan for tackling poverty are expected next year. Lawmakers also begin debating Tuesday Macron's call for constitutional changes aimed at streamlining the legislative process, including shrinking the number of seats in the National Assembly and the Senate by a third. He also already pushed through corporate tax cuts and an easing of labour laws, education and housing overhauls, and a revamp of the state rail operator But a growing number of critics, including some in his own centrist Republic on the Move party (LREM), accuse the former investment banker of neglecting the concerns of voters on the lower rungs of the economic ladder. Recent comments that France spends "a crazy amount of dough" on social security programmes did little to soften his image as the "president of the rich", as he is called by … [Read more...] about Macron to spell out new reforms for France as criticism mounts
