Supreme Court Passes on Safe Injection Site Case; Lawsuit Against Cosby; Lost Mail Found in Philly
  by: iradioal - Philadelphia, PA

The United States Supreme Court decided not to review the case involving supervised injection sites in Philadelphia. The case has gone back and forth between courts over the years. A U.S. appeals court most recently decided against allowing them. That is where it stands since the Supreme Court won't take up the case. It hinges on a federal law referred to as 'crackhouse laws' that makes it illegal to own/operate a building where illegal drugs are consumed. Safehouse argues that because their intentions are good, that law shouldn't apply. They plan to keeping fighting.

Bill Cosby is facing a new lawsuit in New Jersey civil court brought by one of his accusers. Actress/artist/activist Lili Bernard says Cosby drugged and raped her at the Taj Mahal Casino in Atlantic City in 1990. Bernard traveled to Atlantic City from New York City under the impression that Cosby was mentoring her and helping her acting career. She appeared on "The Cosby Show" as 'Mrs. Minifield.' A New Jersey law has opened up a two year window for survivors of sexual abuse to bring civil suits against their abusers, ignoring any statute of limitations. "I have waited a long time to be able to pursue my case in court and I look forward to being heard and to hold Cosby accountable for what he did to me. Although it occurred long ago, I still live with the fear, pain and shame every day of my life," Bernard said in a press release announcing the lawsuit.

"This is just another attempt to abuse the legal process, by opening up the flood gates for people, who never presented an ounce of evidence... mister Cosby continues to maintain steadfast in his innocence and will vigorously fight any alleged allegations waged against him and is willing and able to take this fight to the highest court in these United States of America" said Cosby's spokesperson.

United States Postal Service inspectors are investigating after dozens of pieces of mail were found scattered in the woods in Philadelphia Eastwick's neighborhood. Eastwick resident Dianne Caesar was walking her dog when she noticed the papers strewn about. After a closer look, she realized it was personal mail. A mail container had been overturned and dumped out. There was junk mail, bills, even money orders in envelopes. Caesar contacted the authorities. She said illegal dumping is an issue in this area. The Postal service does not believe it was an employee, but they are investigating who was responsible. It is a felony to tamper with the mail. "The Postal Service condemns, in the strongest possible sense, behavior that jeopardizes the security and sanctity of the U.S. Mail or threatens to tarnish the reputation and high level of trust that the vast majority of our employees work so hard to uphold," a statement said.

Offensive linemen Jon Runyan and Tra Thomas will be inducted into the Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Fame during a ceremony at halftime of Thursday's game, 10/14, against Tampa Bay.
