Judge Rules Against Trump on 1/6

In a scathing rebuke, a federal judge rejected Trump’s claim of executive privilege: “Presidents are not kings.” Over in Portugal, the country’s parliament passed labor laws to give workers a healthier work-life balance. According to the new rules, it is now illegal for bosses to text their employees outside work hours. And Johnson & Johnson is off the hook in Oklahoma. The Oklahoma Supreme Court tossed a 2019 ruling that required J&J to pay the state $465 million for its role in the opioid crisis — rejecting a legal argument currently being used by plaintiffs in thousands of opioid cases across the country. Plus, an original Apple-1 computer was just auctioned for $400,000, 600x its original price.
