Rick Hodges, defendant in the case, who said that as a lifelong Republican he does question the financial feasibility of the ACA, but as a director of the Ohio Department of Health he has to recognize that a flat-out repeal would be a death sentence for at-risk communities.

Remember so-not-a-pirate Kim Dotcom? New Zealand’s highest court has just said the USA can extradite him for copyright naughtiness
New Zealand’s Supreme Court today decided [PDF] […] that Dotcom and his co-defendants can be hauled off to the USA – but only to face copyright-related charges because New Zealand doesn’t have money-laundering laws that match America’s.
The Supremes also considered a decision in a lower court that found Dotcom could not seek a judicial review of his case. The Supreme Court today decided that was incorrect, and Dotcom is entitled to a review of the process.
So Dotcom can have another crack at staying in New Zealand.

Not sure which particular topic to put this in reply to, there are quite a few.
I also don’t really know what this actually does as I don’t really understand British parliament. But it’s encouraging at least. It might have happened anyway if Harris and Biden hadn’t won, but at least that win would have put manners on the Tories.
Don’t masturbate at work, kids.
