Year 7, Week 13 (April 9-15)

The news is a bit late this week–I wanted to see what was happening with the mifepristone story, which thankfully has hit a bit of a pause point as I type this. That said, there is just so much news from the last week and change that some of Tuesday and today’s stories will be covered next time. We’re hitting news overdrive right now, y’all, but I’m trying to keep it bite-sized for you.

Standard standing reminders still apply: I may be well into my seventh year of journalism, but I summarize news within my areas of expertise. NNR summaries often contain some detailed analysis that’s outside my expertise–I’m a lawyer, not an injunction!–but all offroad adventures are marked with an asterisk. And, of course, for the things that are within my lane, I’m offering context that shouldn’t be considered legal advice. Okay, I think that’s about it for the disclaimers.  Onward to the news!     

Cleanup in Aisle 45:

We again have news about Trump’s New York cases on the Election Rejection front, though nothing as earth-shattering as last time. Here’s what has happened:

There are a few different things going on right now on the Biden Rebuilding front, but as always, we’re going with the one I think is most ripe.  Here’s what I have for you:

Your New Normal:

The Bad:

The Good:

So that’s the news from this week Part 1, and don’t worry, we’ll be back with the other batch in just a few short days. For making it through, you deserve this otter hygiene routine and a more functional government.  I’ll be back next week with more restructured and improved news, and I hope you will be back as well–but in the meantime, feel free to ping the National News Roundup ask box, which is there for your constructive comments.  Send me questions! Send me feedback! Send me fewer weeks where I’m forced to write about gender-affirming care saving lives!
