A week ago the D.C. Court of Appeals handed down a decision that answered lingering questions about condo super priority lien foreclosures. It is a potentially a huge blow to mortgage lenders and a windfall to the investors who bought up these foreclosures by the dozen.
On September 27, 2018 the Senante Judiciary Committee, without a meaningful background fact investigation, conducted an eight (8) hour inquiry into sexual assault allegations brought by Dr. Christine Blasey Ford against Judge Brett Kavanaugh. The Committe did not entertain any testimony from witnesses other than the nominee and his accuser, notwithstanding the emergence of additional alleged victims and fact witnesses in the days leading up to the hearing. This afternoon, the Committee is expected to vote along party lines, 11-10, in favor of the nomination.

Restaurants in D.C. are not allowed to discriminate. That is a good thing. Usually. For the better part of 60 years, Federal Law has prohibited discrimination on the basis of race, color, gender, religion in places of public accommodation, i.e. restaurants, bars and nightclubs. D.C. has broadly expanded those protections to include classifications such as personal appearance, political affiliation and matriculation.
