Lattimore, Guardian Et Al V. City Of Southfield Et Al

Summary: This consolidated summary pertains to a lawsuit filed by Erika Lattimore, acting as the guardian of Timesha Beauchamp, against the City of Southfield and four individuals (Michael Storms, Scott Rickard, Phillip Mulligan, and Jake Kroll) in their individual capacities. The lawsuit alleges violations of civil rights under the United States Constitution and federal laws, specifically the Fourteenth Amendment and the Civil Rights Act. The plaintiff claims that the defendants, who were paramedics and firefighters employed by the Southfield Fire Department, failed to provide adequate medical care to Timesha Beauchamp, a 20-year-old with cerebral palsy, when she was unresponsive and in need of emergency medical attention. The lawsuit seeks damages exceeding $75,000. The specific allegations include the defendants discontinuing CPR and declaring Timesha deceased without authorization, falsely stating her lack of rhythm change, disregarding the family's pleas for medical attention, and falsely attributing Timesha's movement to medication. Subsequently, Timesha was discovered to be alive and was transported to the hospital. The lawsuit also accuses the City of Southfield of neglecting to train, discipline, and supervise the individual defendants, thereby fostering unconstitutional customs, policies, or practices. The plaintiff seeks various damages, including exemplary, compensatory, and punitive damages, as well as attorney fees and costs. The lawsuit alleges negligence, constitutional violations, and Monell liability against the defendants.

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.
