Carroll v. Trump

In a legal case filed in the United States District Court, New York Southern, E. Jean Carroll sued Donald J. Trump for battery and defamation. The jury was presented with a verdict form that asked whether Ms. Carroll proved that Mr. Trump raped her, sexually assaulted her, or forcibly touched her. If the answer was yes, the jury was asked to determine the amount of compensation for her injuries and whether Mr. Trump's conduct was willfully or wantonly negligent. Additionally, the jury was asked to determine whether Mr. Trump's statement was defamatory, false, and made with actual malice, and whether Ms. Carroll was injured as a result of the statement. If the answer was yes, the jury was asked to determine the amount of compensation for damages to her reputation and whether Mr. Trump acted maliciously. However, the verdict form did not indicate the outcome of the case.

United States of America v. Robert Hunter Biden

Summary: Hunter Biden is currently embroiled in a lawsuit, accused of purchasing a Colt Cobra revolver in October 2018 while allegedly using illegal substances. Despite denying drug use on the necessary paperwork, if found guilty, he could face a maximum of 25 years in prison along with substantial fines. Biden's defense team contends that the charges are politically driven, asserting that Biden's temporary possession of an unloaded firearm did not constitute a public safety risk. They intend to contest the charges, leveraging an agreement with the prosecution, recent federal court decisions, and potential Second Amendment defenses. This case could potentially ignite wider discussions about Second Amendment rights, especially as the Supreme Court is poised to deliberate on a related issue concerning gun ownership for individuals subject to domestic violence restraining orders. Opinions are divided among political and legislative figures, with some speculating that advocates of the Second Amendment might oppose the law that prohibits gun ownership for drug users.
