Sander Hicks, The New York Megaphone | On Feb. 20, Eugene won a Special Election, with endorsements from the powerful health care union 1199SEIU, and the influential former City Council members Una and Yvette Clarke. But opponents claimed Eugene lived in Canarsie. Residing in the district is a legal requirement of taking office. Eugene claimed during his campaign that he had rented an apartment on Argyle Road, and that he was living there, but when it came time to swear in, Eugene feared being convicted of perjury. Mayor Bloomberg nixed the election, and set a new one, for April 24.

Gideon Oliver | From the Memorandum and Order: "This case is one of many cases arising from the arrests of approximately 1,800 people during the Republican National Convention (the “RNC”) in New York City in the summer of 2004. Throughout the litigation, the City of New York and the individual defendants (collectively, the “City”) have withheld or redacted a number of documents requested by the plaintiffs on the basis of various privileges. On March 14, 2007, I granted in part and denied in part the plaintiffs’ motion to compel production of documents that the City claimed were subject to the self-critical analysis privilege, the attorney-client privilege, and the deliberative process privilege. MacNamara v. City of New York, No. 04 Civ. 9216, 2007 WL 755401 (S.D.N.Y. March 14, 2007). The plaintiffs now seek an order compelling the City to produce in unredacted form additional documents that the City has withheld on the basis of the deliberative process privilege and the law enforcement privilege. In addition, the plaintiffs seek an order reopening depositions at which the City instructed witnesses not to answer questions regarding the presence of undercover or plainclothes officers at demonstrations. For the reasons set forth below, the plaintiffs’ motion is granted in part and denied in part."

budgie | The closer Australia gets to the Federal election, the fewer the political differences between the two major candidates! The chances of opposition leader, Kevin Rudd becoming the next Australian prime minister have increased dramatically following his private dinner engagement with king maker, Rupert Murdoch in New York today. During his quick visit to the U.S., Rudd also addressed the Brookings Institution in Washington and confirmed that any negligible differences between his policies and Howard’s would be completely eradicated by the time of the election and that he was ready, willing and able to assume the ’position’ of lackey, sycophant and new governor of America’s newest colonial acquisition, Australia!

Cesar Camargo | The brutal repression of 1789, that took our hero to the gallows, his friends to the exile and the closing of all the plants by the Portuguese crown, is the perfect synthesis of what has been the history of Brazil, revival of the terror and the retrocession in the trap that took Getúlio to the death, in 1954, in the "coup d'etat" build from outside and precipitated in March the 31th of 1964 and in many other and lamentable occasions.
