More than half of same-sex couples cohabitating are married -

More than half of same-sex couples cohabitating are marriedNew figures released Tuesday by the U.S. Census Bureau show that about 543,000 same-sex couples living together in households were married and 469,000 same-sex couples living together were unmarried. The estimates capture only same-sex couples living together and don’t reflect non-cohabitating same-sex couples nor single people. The Census Bureau says this is the first year in the survey that a same-sex option was included in the question about household relationships and that gender-neutral questions about parents were included.

Jeffrey Epstein: prison guards charged with hiding failure to keep watch -

Jeffrey Epstein: prison guards charged with hiding failure to keep watchTova Noel and Michael Thomas were meant to check Epstein every half-hour but they browsed the web and slept, court papers allegeJeffrey Epstein was arrested and charged in July with the sex trafficking of the minors. Photograph: Shannon Stapleton/ReutersTwo federal corrections officers were indicted on Tuesday for allegedly trying to hide their failure to check on inmates on the night the convicted sex offender and accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein killed himself in his Manhattan cell – a mere 15ft from the jail’s common area.Officers Tova Noel and Michael Thomas “repeatedly failed to complete mandated counts of prisoners under their watch” in the special housing unit (SHU) of the Manhattan correctional center early on 10 August, even though Epstein had apparently tried to kill himself a few weeks earlier, prosecutors said.Epstein, who was awaiting trial for allegedly sex trafficking minors in Florida and New York, was found dead in his cell. The New York City medical examiner ruled his death a suicide.The workers were supposed to check every half-hour on the wealthy financier, who counted Donald Trump, Bill Clinton and Prince Andrew among powerful and well-known associates. Instead, Noel and Thomas “sat at their desk, browsed the internet and moved around the common area of the SHU”, the Manhattan US attorney’s office said.Noel was looking at furniture websites while Thomas was looking at motorcycle sales and sports news, the indictment said. The officers allegedly slept for about two hours.To cover up the fact they were not working as required, prosecutors said, the officers “repeatedly signed false certifications attesting to having conducted multiple counts of inmates that they did not do”.appealThe bogus forms meant jail managers thought SHU prisoners were being monitored as required. “In fact,” the indictment said, “as a result of the defendants’ conduct, no correctional officer conducted any count or round of the SHU” from 10.30pm on 9 August until approximately 6.30am on 10 August.When the officers made their rounds with the inmates’ breakfasts, it was discovered that Epstein was dead.Noel allegedly admitted to not conducting several rounds. The indictment said Thomas told a supervisor: “We messed up. I messed up. She’s not to blame. We didn’t do any rounds.”The names of the officers’ attorneys were not immediately available.Court papers also provided new details about Epstein’s psychological distress – and how the jail handled him. After a 23 July suicide attempt, he was put on suicide watch for 24 hours. He was then put under psychiatric evaluation until 30 July.After that Epstein returned to the SHU where, at the direction of psychological staff, he was supposed to have an assigned cellmate. The morning before Epstein’s death, his cellmate was moved in a “routine, pre-arranged transfer”.“No new cellmate was assigned to his cell,” court papers said.Asked for comment on the indictments, Kathleen Hawk Sawyer, director of the Federal Bureau of Prisons, said in a statement: “Any allegations of misconduct are taken very seriously by the agency and will be responded to appropriately. I am committed to this agency and am confident we will restore the public’s trust in us.”In 2008, Epstein was sentenced to 18 months in prison after he was found guilty of soliciting girls as young as 14 for prostitution. A month before his death, he was arrested and charged with the sex trafficking of minors in Florida and New York.In August, Epstein’s death was ruled suicide by Dr Barbara Sampson, New York City’s medical examiner. The Washington Post later reported that the autopsy found Epstein had broken bones in his neck, injuries consistent with strangulation.The report and Sampson’s finding touched off a number of conspiracy theories, including several retweeted by Trump, that Epstein’s death may have been untoward.The arrest of the guards comes as a new Epstein accuser sued his estate, claiming he committed a “vicious, prolonged sexual assault” on her when she was 15. The woman, named as Jane Doe 15 in legal documents, is one of about a dozen women suing Epstein’s estate for alleged sexual abuses.On Sunday, Prince Andrew gave a rare interview to the BBC in which he was quizzed about his friendship with Epstein. The interview prompted significant backlash, as the prince claimed he had no knowledge of Epstein’s behavior and said he believed staying with Epstein after the financier was convicted of child sex offenses was the “honorable thing to do”.In announcing her lawsuit, Jane Doe 15 appealed for Prince Andrew to come forward with information about Epstein.In a statement on Tuesday, Jane Doe 15’s lawyer, Gloria Allred, said: “All of the victims of Jeffrey Epstein and the public are entitled to the truth about what led to the death of Jeffrey Epstein when he was in custody awaiting trial in New York.”

GM not liable for punitive damages in ignition switch cases: U.S. appeals court -

GM not liable for punitive damages in ignition switch cases: U.S. appeals courtA federal appeals court said General Motors Co is not liable for punitive damages over accidents that occurred after its 2009 bankruptcy and involved vehicles it produced earlier, including vehicles with faulty ignition switches. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Manhattan said on Tuesday that the automaker did not agree to contractually assume liability for punitive damages as part of its federally-backed Chapter 11 reorganization. GM filed for bankruptcy in June 2009, and its best assets were transferred to a new Detroit-based company with the same name.
