Mickelson Et Al V. Pga Tour, Inc.

A group of professional golfers, including Phil Mickelson, Talor Gooch, Bryson DeChambeau, Hudson Swafford, and Matt Jones, have filed a lawsuit against the PGA Tour for antitrust violations. The plaintiffs claim that the PGA Tour has become a monopolist in the professional golf industry and has used its power to impose anticompetitive restraints on players. These restraints include restrictive terms that prevent players from participating in competing events and suppressing player compensation. The lawsuit also involves a new golf league, LIV Golf, that is seeking to compete with the PGA Tour. The plaintiffs allege that the PGA Tour has engaged in unlawful tactics to crush nascent competition, including threatening lifetime bans on players who participate in LIV Golf events and orchestrating a group boycott with the European Tour. The plaintiffs are seeking damages and injunctive relief to prevent the PGA Tour from continuing its anticompetitive behavior. They also want to eliminate the policy requiring golfers to participate in a certain number of tournaments each year and allow for fair competition in the market for players' services.

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.
