U.S. Supreme Court Ruling Threatens Massive Talc Litigation Against J&J

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); Johnson & Johnson is seizing upon a U.S. Supreme Court ruling from Monday limiting where injury lawsuits can be filed to fight off claims it failed to warn women that talcum powder could cause ovarian cancer. New Jersey-based J&J has been battling a series of lawsuits over its talc-based products, including Johnson’s Baby Powder, brought by around 5,950 women and their families. The company denies any link between talc and cancer. A fifth of the plaintiffs have cases pending in state court in St. Louis, where juries in four trials have hit J&J and a talc supplier with $307 million in verdicts. Those four cases and most of the others on the St. Louis docket involve out-of-state plaintiffs suing an out-of-state company. On Monday, the Supreme Court ruled 8-1 in a case involving Bristol-Myers Squibb Co that state courts cannot hear claims against companies that are not based in the state when the alleged injuries did not occur there. The ruling immediately led a St. Louis judge at J&J’s urging to declare a mistrial in the latest talc case, in which two of the three women at issue were from out of state. It also could imperil prior verdicts and cases that have yet to go to trial. “We believe the recent U.S. Supreme Court ruling on the Bristol-Myers Squibb matter requires reversal of the talc cases that are currently under appeal in St. Louis,” J&J said in a statement. The question of where such lawsuits can be filed has been the subject of fierce debate. The business community has argued plaintiffs should not be allowed to shop around for the most favorable court to bring lawsuits, while injured parties claim corporations are trying to deny them access to justice. Along with talc cases, large-scale litigation alleging injuries from Bayer AG’s Essure birth control device in Missouri and California and GlaxoSmithKline’s antidepressant Paxil in California and Illinois are examples of other cases where defendants could utilize the Supreme Court decision. Although he declared a mistrial on Monday, St. Louis Circuit Judge Rex Burlison left the door open for the plaintiffs to argue they still have jurisdiction. Plaintiffs lawyer Ted Meadows said he would argue the St. Louis court still had jurisdiction based on a Missouri-based bottler J&J used to package its talc products, which he said would create a sufficient connection to the state. “It’s very disappointing to mistry a case because the Supreme Court changed the rules on us,” said Meadows. The lawsuit decided by the high court on Monday involved claims against Bristol-Myers and California-based drug distributor McKesson Corp by 86 California residents and 575 non-Californians over the blood thinner Plavix. Beyond Monday’s mistrial, the Supreme Court’s ruling could bolster a pending appeal by J&J of a $72 million verdict in favor of the family of Alabama resident Jacqueline Fox, who died in 2015. A Missouri appeals court had said in May it would wait until the Supreme Court issued its decision to decide the appeal. J&J has won only one of the five trials so far in Missouri. It previously sought to move talc cases out of St. Louis, but the Missouri Supreme Court in January denied its bid. The company has also cast the St. Louis court as overly plaintiff-friendly and has allowed evidence linking talc to cancer that was rejected by a New Jersey state court judge overseeing over 200 talc cases. The plaintiffs are appealing. The talc verdicts against J&J led the business-friendly American Tort Reform Association last year to declare the St. Louis state court the nation’s top “Judicial Hellhole.” Now J&J could try to use the Supreme Court ruling to dismiss many of the cases it faces in Missouri, according to legal experts. Corporations facing a large volume of cases in venues chosen by plaintiffs will likely cite the Supreme Court to try to dismiss those claims, said Rusty Perdew, a defense lawyer at the law firm Locke Lord. “You have a bunch of defendants who can go back and say, ‘Judge, you got that wrong and you’re going to have to dismiss claims by all those plaintiffs,’” he said. (This story was corrected to show that Perdew was speaking about corporations in general, not J&J, in next-to-last paragraph.)   (Reporting by Nate Raymond in Boston; Editing by Tom Brown and Bill Trott) -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Supreme Court ruling in drug case could have big implications for product liability

Bristol-Myers Squibb prevailed in its effort to get the Supreme Court to limit where patients can sue to seek compensation for harm caused by drugs.Justices Monday ruled, 8-1, for the drug company in a case that pitted BMS against the state of California and that could have broad implications for where manufacturers can be sued.The case centered around whether plaintiffs residing outside of California who claim they were harmed by BMS' blood thinner Plavix could join in a lawsuit brought by California residents against the New York-based company in California. The out-of-state residents didn't buy the drug or take it in California, and the product wasn't manufactured in the state."The mere fact that other plaintiffs were prescribed, obtained, and ingested Plavix in California — and allegedly sustained the same injuries as did the non-residents — does not allow the State to assert specific jurisdiction over the nonresidents' claims," wrote Justice Samuel Alito in the court's opinion.BMS and the government said California’s Supreme Court erred when it agreed that the out-of-state plaintiffs had standing in the case. The company argued failure to overturn the ruling would create more unpredictable conditions for corporations.A BMS win could limit patients' ability to “forum shop” cases against drugmakers. California is thought to be a particularly friendly state for injured plaintiffs, and a court victory for BMS could discourage patients from seeking relief there to boost their odds of a victory.

Bill Maher Jokes He's A 'House N****r' On 'Real Time'

Comedian Bill Maher dropped a racial slur in a joke Friday on “Real Time,” and people erupted on social media. Bill Maher just said the n word, @BenSasse didn't look horrified, and the audience applauded. pic.twitter.com/kFAs1S3dyM— Yashar Ali (@yashar) June 3, 2017 While discussing the state of Nebraska, his guest, Sen. Ben Sasse (R-Neb.), told Maher, “We’d love to have you work in the fields with us.” Apparently confused by the invitation, Maher joked “Work in the fields? Senator, I’m a house n****r!” Sasse looked uncomfortable, and the audience reacted with a mix of claps and groans. Then Maher, a critic of political correctness, followed up his remark by pointing out the sarcasm. “No, it’s a joke,” he said. The “Real Time” audience seemed to quickly forgive the host with a round of applause. Waving off the reaction with his hand, Maher replied, “Thank you.” People on Twitter, however, weren’t so forgiving.  But really, @BillMaher has got to go. There are no explanations that make this acceptable. pic.twitter.com/K5XlEjekQ9— deray mckesson (@deray) June 3, 2017 . @billmaher is a racist and bigot. @HBO must fire him this is not acceptable https://t.co/nlmFcDoWAk— Ahmed Bedier (@bedier) June 3, 2017 Bill Maher must be fired immediately for his racism and belittling the struggle of millions of black Americans— Jack Posobiec (@JackPosobiec) June 3, 2017 His fans reminded Maher that the word is completely off-limits to him and any person who isn’t black ― even if the comedian rejects PC policing. Some are comparing Maher’s joke with Kathy Griffin’s shocking photo shoot of her holding a likeness of Trump’s bloody severed head, which outraged conservatives and liberals alike. I'm a huge Bill Maher fan, but he just said (as a joke in his mind), "I'm a house nigga". Off limits, Bill. Not cool at all!— Jacquelyn Carter (@jcarter1263) June 3, 2017 @billmaher jokes have limits. high level of carelessness & indifference is destructive. Notice how Kathy Griffin self-destroyed!— M.M (@Mac4RFW) June 3, 2017 Me When bill maher just casually drops the n-word #Realtime #Billmaher pic.twitter.com/VUbKu2OKL0— Ryan Sanders (@TheKingleonidus) June 3, 2017 They just clapped like Bill Maher didn't say anything offensive pic.twitter.com/AIWqbBnhnj— ERV (@ervcas) June 3, 2017 One of Bill Maher's black acquaintances, please smack him? Bill, you don't get a pass. #billmaher #RealTime— Ron W. (@Badbluebro) June 3, 2017 Others are recalling how Maher has previously faced accusations of Islamophobia and was criticized for “normalizing” alt-right troll Milo Yiannopoulos when interviewing him on his show in February. People shocked at Bill Maher being racist-y, check w your Arab & Muslim friends. Been doing this for a LONG time, but he got hall passes.— Wajahat Ali (@WajahatAli) June 3, 2017 For folks finally denouncing @billmaher now: you're saying while transphobia & Islamophobia are ok, anti-Blackeness is where you draw a line— Sophie Ellman-Golan (@EgSophie) June 3, 2017 Remember when Bill Maher had Milo on? & Milo disrespected the 2 black guests, @larrywilmore and @MalcolmNance. Remember how quiet Bill was? — Soul & Substance (@SoulNSubstance) June 3, 2017 Sasse later revealed on Twitter that he wished he’d held Maher to account over the comment at the time, and admitted that “cringing last night wasn’t good enough.” Am walking off a redeye from LAX.3 reflections on @billmaher1. I’m a 1st Amendment absolutist. Comedians get latitude to cross hard lines.— Ben Sasse (@BenSasse) June 3, 2017 2. But free speech comes with a responsibility to speak up when folks use that word. Me just cringing last night wasn’t good enough.(2of4?) https://t.co/e4Bw8s8tV2— Ben Sasse (@BenSasse) June 3, 2017 3. Here’s what I wish I’d been quick enough to say in the moment: “Hold up, why would you think it’s OK to use that word?...(3of4?) https://t.co/mQL6wMEd7W— Ben Sasse (@BenSasse) June 3, 2017 (4of4)"...The history of the n-word is an attack on universal human dignity. It’s therefore an attack on the American Creed. Don't use it.” https://t.co/kEZm5vPFHK— Ben Sasse (@BenSasse) June 3, 2017 Maher hasn’t responded to the outrage yet, and, if he does, it probably won’t be an apology. The comedian, whose career hinges off his no-holds-barred sarcasm, believes that PC culture has become a dangerous vehicle in today’s politics and has warned Democrats to “ease up on the identity politics.” He’s even blamed PC culture for President Donald Trump’s win. But if people are wondering if it’s OK for Maher to casually drop the slur as a joke, we’ll let the Twitter outrage answer that question. Just watched the Bill Maher clip. pic.twitter.com/wDcENLICKA— Marisa (@mar_to_go) June 3, 2017 This article has been updated to include Sasse’s reaction to Maher’s comment and background on the comedian’s previous controversies. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Trump Gave Pope Francis A Copy Of MLK Jr. Writings And The Irony Was Almost Too Much

President Donald Trump met with Pope Francis for the first time on Wednesday, and, as customary for visits between dignitaries, the two men exchanged gifts. In a not-so-subtle nod to Trump’s shaky track record on environmental issues, Francis gave the U.S. president a copy of his 2015 encyclical on the environment, “Laudato Si.” As his offering, Trump saw fit to present the pontiff with a first-edition set of writings by Martin Luther King Jr. In some ways, the gesture was fitting. Francis spoke about King’s civil rights legacy during his address to Congress in 2015, and he frequently preaches on topics like nonviolence and the perils of capitalism, which were also close to King’s heart. But Trump’s gift was filled with irony. The White House claimed the gift “honors Dr. King’s hope, vision, and inspiration for generations to come.” Whether Trump, himself, honors King’s message is a question many have pondered. For one, Trump has had a troubling way of talking about black people over the years. “I have a great relationship with the blacks,” he said in April 2011. “I’ve always had a great relationship with the blacks.” In his years as a casino mogul, Trump allegedly disparaged his black employees as “lazy” in vividly bigoted terms, according to a 1991 book by John O’Donnell, a former president of Trump Plaza Hotel and Casino. “I think the guy is lazy,” Trump said of a black employee, according to O’Donnell. “And it’s probably not his fault because laziness is a trait in blacks. It really is, I believe that. It’s not anything they can control.” Trump was also a leading proponent of “birtherism,” the racist conspiracy theory that President Barack Obama was not born in the United States and was thus an illegitimate president. Trump claimed in 2011 to have sent people to Hawaii to investigate whether Obama was really born there. He insisted at the time that the researchers “cannot believe what they are finding.” Two months before the election, Trump finally acknowledged that Obama was indeed born in the United States. After his presidential win, Trump also consistently sidestepped opportunities to renounce white nationalist and former KKK leader David Duke, who told his radio audience that voting for any candidate other than Trump would be “treason to your heritage.” When asked by CNN’s Jake Tapper if he would condemn Duke and say he didn’t want a vote from him or any other white supremacists, Trump claimed that he didn’t know anything about white supremacists or about Duke. When Tapper pressed him twice more, Trump said he couldn’t condemn a group he hadn’t yet researched. The president has also surrounded himself with a number of advisors and cabinet picks who have a history of prejudice. He replaced former Attorney General Loretta Lynch, the first African-American woman to hold the position, with Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.), a conservative, white, Republican senator from Alabama with a history of racially insensitive comments. To kick off Black History Month in February, Trump hosted a “conversation” at the White House and managed to make part of the discussion mostly about himself. In his remarks, the president also seemed a little shaky on his history when he referred to Frederick Douglass ― a man who escaped slavery to become an acclaimed author, abolitionist and civil rights activist ― as “an example of somebody who has done an amazing job and is being recognized more and more, I notice.” Whether Trump fully grasps the struggles and achievements of black Americans like King enough to bestow his writings on the pope is a question many Twitter users were pondering on Wednesday: Now, we all know that Trump ain't read or internalized a single thought of MLK. https://t.co/KXRZXWWB3n— deray mckesson (@deray) May 24, 2017 Trump giving MLK's books to the Pope when his policies will killl the folks MLK tried to help & Trump's DHS choice would've arrested him. pic.twitter.com/9ZWCmXnHKs— April (@ReignOfApril) May 24, 2017 Trump gives MLK writings to Pope. I doubt Trump read them? 3 evils of society, militarism, capitalism and racism.... https://t.co/SC1Oa2zlii— Dr. Wilmer Leon (@DrWLeon) May 24, 2017 I so misread this at first. I thought it said the Pope gave Trump, MLK books. Because no way would it make sense the other way. https://t.co/2sQTZY43zb— Adam (@MyNinjaTurtle) May 24, 2017 @robinthede Trump giving the Pope MLK writings-I didn't know whether to laugh my ass off or throw up in my mouth.— Joseph Powell (@jobypoet) May 24, 2017 @CBSThisMorning #TrumpGave the Pope bound writings/sayings of MLK!But 'HBCU's are racist to Whites' & to protestors'Get em outta here'.— Freedom'sComing (@jjconceptsinc) May 24, 2017 So Trump allegedly gave Pope Francis a 1st edition copy of the writings of Rev. Dr. MLK, Jr. Hope he kept a copy for himself. And reads it.— A. Adar Ayira (@AdarAyiraViews) May 24, 2017 Trump gave the Pope thise MLK books because he didnt want them.— Facts make sense (@DJYABOYEARL) May 24, 2017 Trump gave the Pope a copy of Why We Can't Wait after his AG proposed effectively bringing back Jim Crow in our justice system. Read MLK.(4) pic.twitter.com/jFF5IY808R— Joshua DuBois (@joshuadubois) May 24, 2017 We also know for damn sure that Trump never read any of the books by MLK that Trump presented to the Pope. There aren't any pictures. pic.twitter.com/GLV3JtQ1XC— April (@ReignOfApril) May 24, 2017 Are we sure Trump gave Pope Francis an actual book of MLK's and not just a Chipotle bag with the "I have a dream" quote on it— Ira Madison III (@ira) May 24, 2017 -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Terrible @RogueFirstLadyHand Twitter Account Inevitable Now

Like what you read below? Sign up for HUFFPOST HILL and get a cheeky dose of political news every evening! President Trump’s approval rating continues to decline, though voters haven’t given the orb enough time to fully integrate into the president’s neural pathways and firmly settle into its new host body — believe us, you’ll absolutely love the guy then. Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke met with a notorious internet troll — and in addition to meeting the president, he also met with Chuck Johnson (hey oooh!). And Fox News retracted its Seth Rich story, upgrading its journalistic reputation from “existential threat to civil society” to a mere “cancer on the First Amendment.” Well done, gang. This is HUFFPOST HILL for Tuesday, May 23rd, 2017: MORE DAMNING TESTIMONY AGAINST TRUMP CAMPAIGN - Maybe Trump will clarify this matter by blurting something out during a photo op with the Pope. That is the new fourth estate. The president blurting out things. Greg Miller: “The CIA alerted the FBI to a troubling pattern of contacts between Russian officials and associates of the Trump campaign last year, former agency director John Brennan testified on Tuesday, shedding new light on the origin of a criminal probe that now reaches into the White House. In testimony before the House Intelligence Committee, Brennan said he became increasingly concerned that Trump associates were being manipulated by Russian intelligence services as part of a broader covert influence campaign that sought to disrupt the election and deliver the presidency to Trump. ‘I was worried by a number of the contacts that the Russians had with U.S. persons,’ Brennan said, adding that he did not see proof of collusion before he left office on January 20, but ‘felt as though the FBI investigation was certainly well-founded and needed to look into those issues.’” [WaPo] TRUMP BUDGET AS TERRIBLE AS PROMISED - Remember: the president’s budget is simply a wish list of how he’d like to kill your grandmother. That’s all. Don’t get too worked up.  Arthur Delaney: “President Donald Trump wants Congress to cut food stamps and other anti-poverty programs in order to pay for more military spending and a border wall, according to a budget proposal the White House will formally unveil on Tuesday. Trump’s budget for fiscal 2018, a summary of which the administration released late Monday, would plow the savings from welfare cuts into higher military spending and deficit reduction…. The budget cuts Social Security Disability Insurance by about 4 percent. Mulvaney argued that doing so doesn’t violate Trump’s Social Security campaign pledge because most people only think of retirement insurance when they think of Social Security. The proposal doesn’t touch retirement insurance, but Social Security advocates say Trump nevertheless broke his promise.” [HuffPost] Congress reacted Trump’s budget like it was printed on a filthy, stinky diaper. “President Donald Trump’s first budget didn’t exactly get rave reviews, even from Republicans, as word of its cuts spread on Capitol Hill Tuesday.” [HuffPost’s Michael McAuliff and Laura Barrón-López] @W7VOA: “Donald Trump united the entire Muslim world in a way that it really hasn’t been in many years,” said sr. admin. official on Air Force One. WON’T SOMEONE PLEASE THINK OF THE RICH PEOPLE! The director of the White House Office of Management and Budget published Ayn Rand fanfic in the form of an op-ed today. Mick Mulvaney: “For years, we’ve focused on how we can help Americans receive taxpayer-funded assistance. Under President Trump’s leadership, we’re now looking at how we can respect both those who require assistance and the taxpayers who fund that support. For the first time in a long time, we’re putting taxpayers first. Taking money from someone without an intention to pay it back is not debt. It is theft. This budget makes it clear that we will reverse this larceny.” [Miami Herald] FOX PULLS SETH RICH STORY - Despite the fact that the network retracted the story, Sean Hannity remains tragically, er... tracted. Travis Waldron: “A week after publishing a thinly sourced, conspiracy-peddling article that linked slain Democratic National Committee staffer Seth Rich to Wikileaks, Fox News has issued a retraction and removed the story from its website. The network’s statement, however, did not mention Fox’s television programming, where prominent commentator Sean Hannity has repeatedly pushed the conspiracy theory since the story published. Hannity was still peddling the theory on Twitter just before the retraction was published, urging his followers to read a post from hacker Kim Dotcom that claimed Rich had definitive links to WikiLeaks. Earlier this week, CNN reported that Hannity had invited Kim Dotcom on his show…. Hannity isn’t the only Fox television commentator to spread the Rich conspiracy theory since the story published online. The ‘Fox and Friends’ morning show has pushed the story as well, and Fox News contributor Newt Gingrich also raised it during an appearance on the network over the weekend.” [HuffPost] FIIIIIIIINE, PRESIDENT AGREES TO MEET POPE - Erik Wasson, Steven T. Dennis and John McCormick: “No two world leaders would seem to have less in common. They’ll meet face to face at the Vatican for the first time on Wednesday, at Trump’s request…. Trump, a Presbyterian, was in no hurry to meet the leader of the world’s 1.2 billion Roman Catholics, according to a senior Vatican official who asked not to be identified because he was not authorized to speak publicly about the issue. The White House reached out to the Vatican only at the end of April, the official said, noting that leaders usually schedule meetings with the pope two months or more in advance…. The two leaders are expected to discuss issues including global poverty, immigration and climate change on which there will be ‘legitimate differences,’ the Vatican official said.” [Bloomberg] Haircut: James Comey (h/t Christopher J.

Send tips/stories/photos/events/fundraisers/job movement/juicy miscellanea to [email protected] Follow us on Twitter - @HuffPostHill FEC MEMBER CALLS FOR GREATER TRUMP INVESTIGATION - Kenneth P. Vogel: “A member of the Federal Election Commission is calling on the agency to investigate whether Russian agents paid for Facebook ads to spread damaging stories about Hillary Clinton ahead of last fall’s presidential election. ‘I think there is potential there for finding a violation, but I don’t want to suggest that I have prejudged anything that could potentially come before me,’ said FEC Commissioner Ellen Weintraub, a Democratic appointee to the commission. Her assertion comes as agency staff is already moving to investigate a related complaint filed in December by a pair of watchdog groups against President Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government, according to two sources familiar with the agency’s handling of the complaint. They said that, if the investigation proceeds apace, agency staff could be expected to incorporate the recent revelations about Facebook ads into their fact-finding.” [Politico] TRUMP UNPOPULAR - Ariel Edwards-Levy and Grace Sparks: “President Donald Trump’s average approval rating just reached a new low, according to HuffPost Pollster’s aggregation of publicly available surveys. Trump’s ratings took a noticeable dip in March after Republicans failed to pass a bill repealing the Affordable Care Act. They stabilized in the low 40s for much of April. In the past month, however, his ratings have taken a more significant downturn. His average approval rating stands at just below 40 percent as of Tuesday afternoon, with his disapproval rating at nearly 56 percent…. Individual pollsters who’ve tracked Trump’s ratings this month have measured strikingly similar downward shifts. Of the six pollsters who’ve released multiple surveys taken in May, five found Trump’s net approval rating ― the difference between his ‘approve’ and ‘disapprove’ numbers ― falling by between 7 and 9 points, as of Monday evening. The sixth, the Ipsos/Reuters tracking poll, shows him down by 11.” [HuffPost] Impeachment is so yesterday. The 25th Amendment so fresh. ZINKE MET WITH CONSPIRACY TROLL - If only that were the name of some kind of endangered mole-rat the department were trying to protect. Alas. Chris D’Angelo: “Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke held a video call in April with an infamous right-wing internet troll and a virtual reality entrepreneur to discuss the Trump administration’s plans to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border. Zinke’s half-hour call with Charles ‘Chuck’ Johnson, the CEO and founder of Gotnews.com, and Palmer Luckey, the founder of Oculus VR, occurred just after lunch on April 12, according to a recently published log of Zinke’s scheduled meetings last month. The call’s listed topic of discussion: ‘Border Wall building plans.’ … A conservative journalist with serious credibility issues, Johnson is perhaps best known for being banned from Twitter in 2015 after asking for donations to help him ‘take out’ civil rights activist DeRay McKesson.” [HuffPost] Oh: The wife of President Trump’s top anti-terror adviser, Sebastian Gorka, has been hired as a temporary adviser to the Department of Homeland Security’s chief of staff, according to documents obtained by a watchdog group. Katherine Gorka will serve as a temporary adviser for 120 days, with the possibility of an extension, according to the American Oversight group…. Gorka’s husband has taken heat...over Gorka’s alleged ties to Hungarian far-right organizations with ties to the Nazis.” [The Hill’s John Bowden] CONGRATULATIONS TO MODERATE REPUBLICANISM - What’s it like being dead? Lindsey McPherson: “New Jersey Rep. Tom MacArthur has stepped down as co-chair of the moderate Republican Tuesday Group. ‘I’ve been thinking about it since the day we voted on health care,’ MacArthur told reporters Tuesday, describing divisions in the group. ‘There are people that have bristled with me engaging with the Freedom Caucus,’ he said. ‘I’m going to do that again. That’s who I am. I’m going to work with everyone.’ Still, MacArthur said he did not feel pressure to resign as the backlash against him over the health care negotiations ‘had settled down somewhat.’ Rather, he said he is stepping down because he thinks it’s the right thing to do.” [Roll Call] ICYMI: INTERIOR CENSORING CLIMATE FINDINGS - Really outstanding stuff over at Interior these days. Dino Grandoni: “On Thursday, a group of scientists, including three working for the U.S. Geological Survey, published a paper that highlighted the link between sea-level rise and global climate change, arguing that previously studies may have underestimated the risk flooding poses to coastal communities. However, three of the study’s authors say the Department of Interior, under which USGS is housed, deleted a line from the news release on the study that discussed the role climate change played in raising Earth’s oceans.” [WaPo] SHERIFF CLARKE MAY NOT GET ADMINISTRATION JOB AMID PLAGIARISM REPORT -  Well, Melania Trump did plagiarize that Michelle Obama speech and she was still named first lady, so...how about that for a take? Nathan McDermott and Andrew Kaczynski: “Milwaukee Sheriff David Clarke said this week that a CNN KFile report on plagiarism in his master’s thesis could impact the Trump administration’s decision to hire him for a role at the Department of Homeland Security. A CNN KFile review of Clarke’s 2013 master’s thesis found 47 examples in which Clarke used passages from sources and credited them with a footnote, without using quotation marks indicating that he took the language verbatim. In several instances, Clarke copied entire sentences while changing or replacing only one or two words.

Trump's Interior Secretary Took Time To Discuss The Border Wall With A Far-Right Troll

WASHINGTON — Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke held a video call in April with an infamous right-wing internet troll and a virtual reality entrepreneur to discuss the Trump administration’s plans to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border.  Zinke’s half-hour call with Charles “Chuck” Johnson, the CEO and founder of Gotnews.com, and Palmer Luckey, the founder of Oculus VR, occurred just after lunch on April 12, according to a recently published log of Zinke’s scheduled meetings last month.  The call’s listed topic of discussion: “Border Wall building plans.”  What knowledge or expertise Johnson and Luckey could bring to such a conversation, and why the man tasked with managing some 500 million acres of federal land would agree to the meeting, is anyone’s guess.  A conservative journalist with serious credibility issues, Johnson is perhaps best known for being banned from Twitter in 2015 after asking for donations to help him “take out” civil rights activist DeRay McKesson. He also unsuccessfully sued Gawker for defamation, seeking $66 million over articles addressing rumors that Johnson defecated on the floor at some point during college. In January, Forbes reported that Johnson was “working behind the scenes with members of the [Trump] transition team’s executive committee” to “recommend, vet and give something of a seal of approval to potential nominees from the so-called ‘alt-right’” to work in the administration. Luckey, the multimillionaire founder of Oculus VR, has come under fire for funding a pro-Donald Trump internet group that pumped out anti-Hillary Clinton memes during the 2016 presidential race, and for donating $100,000 to Trump’s official inauguration committee.  The Interior Department did not respond to HuffPost’s multiple requests for comment. However, a spokeswoman for the agency told Gizmodo that the April 12 call was arranged by Zinke’s friend Scott McEwen, a co-author of Navy SEAL Chris Kyle’s autobiography American Sniper. “The Secretary had a brief meeting where he listened to [Johnson and Luckey’s] ideas about using technology on the border and referred the gentlemen to the Department of Homeland Security,” the spokeswoman told Gizmodo.  “Regarding setting up the meeting, a friend of the Secretary’s suggested he talk with them about their technology,” she added. “As a result, they had a very brief meeting with the Secretary. There was no action after.” Johnson did not respond to HuffPost’s request for comment. Contacted by Gizmodo via Twitter, Luckey reportedly referred the publication to a response he’d previously given them, which read, “I could give you an answer, or I could tell you to fuck yourself.” Paul Blumenthal contributed to this report.  -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.
