Wanna bet who appointed said judge?
From the article.
“…the judge wrote that the agreement will expire before he can rule on the merits of the matter.”
Well then maybe do your job and rule on a case that affects a whole lot of people and the health of the nation.
Holy shit!! After all the blowback from the Tuskegee Experiment, that any organization would knowingly fund something like this is unfathomable. Even if “poor brown people are still people” wasn’t enough of an argument, “the consequences when this goes public, and it will, will be devastating” should have been. I cannot understand how this got through. Jesus wept.
Fucking ghouls. Taxpayer money funded the development. They don’t need to “recoup” anything.
That money needs to come with strings attached on pricing.
Though they’ll probably just get into accounting games afterwards. It’ll still have a downward pressure and some accountability.
Wow, who could possibly have predicted that?!
The Chicago Police Union is still at it. I hope all non-compliant officers quit.
ETA: The comments below this article which provide details about this union’s leadership are downright scary, too.
