09.25.20 Pocono Record – “Ruth Bader Ginsburg becomes first woman to lie in state: 8 other strides she made for women.” Even in death, Ruth Bader Ginsburg is making history for women. The U.S. Supreme Court justice, a driving force for gender equality in the United States who died last week at age 87, will be the first woman to lie in state in the U.S. Capitol. The honor comes after Ginsburg lay in repose at the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday and Thursday, a final visit to the high court she served for 27 years. During those decades, Ginsburg helped act as a voice for women – and men – in countless ways, from education to workplace discrimination and health care. Though it would be impossible to list every triumph that Ginsburg helped achieve, the article traces some of the impact she’s had on women’s lives in America. One example is that before Ginsburg, state-funded schools didn’t have to admit women. In the 1996 United States v. Virginia case, Ginsburg wrote the majority opinion that it is unconstitutional for schools funded by taxpayer dollars to bar women. Speaking to USA TODAY, women’s rights attorney, Gloria Allred, described Ginsburg’s opinion in the case as “groundbreaking.” “She was clear that state-sponsored educational institutions could not exclude women on account of their gender,” attorney Allred explained.

The writer looks at Depp’s courtroom battle with Heard, his libel suit against The Sun, and other potential effects on his career. The writer spoke to attorney Gloria Allred, who doesn’t not have either party as a client, to look at her thoughts regarding a celebrity accused of domestic violence. “I’m not going to speculate his motives for suing The Sun, but whether or not the court finds in his favor, he’s disputing a very serious allegation,” Ms. Allred says, explaining that simply disputing claims of spousal abuse could be a strategic tactic to cast doubt on Heard’s accusations, which have dominated headlines for the past five years. Ms. Allred further discusses these issues related to the current MeToo cases in the news.

The six-part miniseries investigated the sex cult allegations while revisiting some older accusations against the singer, including those that led to the 2008 trial and his 1994 marriage to protege Aaliyah, who was then 15 years old. Days after the premiere, Georgia and Illinois opened criminal investigations and encouraged more victims to come forward. By the next month, Kelly had lost his record deal and been charged by the Cook County state’s attorney in Chicago with sex abuse. In July 2019, he got hit with federal sex abuse charges as well. At press time, he sits in a Chicago jail awaiting trial. Attorney Gloria Allred, who represents several of Kelly’s accusers, called the documentary “inspiring,” adding: “Courage is contagious, and the courage of those that spoke out inspired others. It made them realize, ‘I’m not alone. I didn’t realize he was doing this others. Maybe I can speak out, too.’ When women break out of those chains of fear, many things are possible.”

Attorney Gloria Allred has said publically that Prince Andrew should speak to authorities to help the victims get justice. According to The Independent in London, if a subpoena were issued to compel the prince’s testimony in the U.S., he would not be obliged to comply unless he happened to be in the U.S. “Certainly, if he ever came back to the United States, that would be one of the first things that I’m sure a lot of lawyers, including me, would want to do,” Ms. Allred told BBC Radio in January.

The rest of his estate is tied up in bankruptcy and other civil proceedings, multiple sources familiar with the situation confirmed to ABC News. Sources close to Weinstein claimed that the asset freeze has complicated his efforts to appeal his New York conviction and mount a strong defense ahead of his L.A. trial. Veteran victims’ advocate and attorney Gloria Allred, who represents some of the women who have or will testify against Weinstein in criminal court, said that news of the asset freeze concerned her. “This new development presents a serious impediment to the efforts of the victims of Harvey Weinstein to obtain compensation from him for the harm that he has inflicted on them,” Allred told ABC News. “It is not, however, the end of the road for victims, because he may have other assets that are not liquid that may be available to the victims. I have no doubt that victims will persevere until they receive all of the justice available to them under the law.”

07.09.20 New York Post – “Prince Andrew emerges for first time since Ghislaine Maxwell’s arrest.” Prince Andrew was spotted in London today for the first time since the arrest of Ms. Maxwell.

The acting U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Audrey Strauss, told reporters at a press conference announcing the arrest of Ms. Maxwell that she would “welcome Prince Andrew coming in to talk with us.” Attorney Gloria Allred, representing some of Jeffrey Epstein’s victims, told Good Morning Britain the Duke of York’s failure to conduct an interview was a “torture test” for her clients. “And this kind of torture test that Prince Andrew is subjecting the victims to, like will he or won’t he give a statement, if he will, when?” “More excuses, more delays, it really is painful for many of the victims. It’s just not fair.”

Today, Ms. Allred stated, “The arrest of Ghislaine Maxwell is a major development and demonstrates that the criminal investigation is serious and that it continues.

The author suggests in the book that his testimony on Jeffrey Epstein could lead to charges and “rip open the abyss for the monarchy.” It has been stated that the U.S. Department of Justice wants to force the Duke of York to give an interview under oath, but is currently treating him as a witness not a suspect.

Ultimately, she declined to testify against the basketball star, but later went to civil court, where she and Bryant settled for an undisclosed amount. Attorney Gloria Allred spoke to the writer and said, “there’s been a seismic shift over the last 17 years” since Bryant was charged. “Women are more empowered and more willing to come forward.” But, she added, “There [are] still many allegations against sports figures, those in the entertainment world, religious world [and] business world,” that never reach trial. “Because there’s still a major difference in the power dynamic between those who are in power and those who are not.”

In 2008, Starr, as part of Jeffrey Epstein’s legal team, helped craft the sweetheart deal that allowed Mr. Epstein to spend just 13 months in jail, while still being able to attend to business interests. Later Mr. Starr became president of Baylor University, and during this time, he was in support of a social friend, Chris Kloman, a teacher at the Potomac School in Virginia, who was sentenced to 43 years for sexually assaulting five girls. The Starrs wrote a letter to the court asking for community service for their friend. Attorney Gloria Allred, who represented Kloman’s victims, told the Waco Tribune-Herald she found it “shocking” that Starr “would argue that community service, rather than prison time, is an appropriate punishment for a convicted serial child molester.” Several years later, Mr. Starr was removed as president of Baylor University, as under his watch, the university was found to be deliberately indifferent to numerous reports of sexual assault. The writer wonders “Why, we might ask, does Starr consistently end up protecting powerful men while showing callous disregard for the women they use for their pleasure?”

The three women will be allowed to testify in the trial under the Molineaux Rule, which says that other accusations can be used to establish, among other things, a pattern to an offender’s criminal behavior. Attorney Gloria Allred said she believes prosecutors are more likely to take on serial predators and to request testimony from accusers outside of the criminal case. “This is a new day,” Ms. Allred told the reporter. “Whatever happens in Weinstein, we’re never going back.”
