    DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Eleven students from Brazil and Chile have filed a federal lawsuit accusing a northwest Iowa community college, a recruitment company, a pet food manufacturer and a packaging company of human trafficking and involuntary servitude. The lawsuit filed Monday in the Northern District of Iowa says Western Iowa Tech Community College and J&L Staffing, both in Sioux City, lured the students to Iowa in 2019 under a work- and study- based visa exchange program only to push them into factory jobs that had no educational value and were unrelated to the field of study. The lawsuit says the students were paid significantly less than U.S. employees and some of their money was deducted from their paychecks to fund kickbacks to the college and staffing agency. Two of the students are from Chile and nine are from Brazil. Civil rights lawyer Roxanne Conlin said her clients...
    A judge dismissed a defamation lawsuit filed against Twitter by the owner of the Delaware computer repair shop that had Hunter Biden’s laptop the same day it was filed. The lawsuit, which was filed Monday by John Paul Mac Isaac in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California, alleged that Twitter defamed Isaac when they censored a story from the New York Post under their hacked materials policy. The New York Post published emails from the laptop’s hard drive which showed President-elect Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, met with an executive from the Ukrainian gas company Burisma in 2015.

    John Paul Mac Isaac The Delaware computer repairman at the center of the Hunter Biden laptop story that popped up before the election filed a defamation lawsuit against Twitter on Monday that also was dismissed on Monday. John Paul Mac Isaac attempted to sue Twitter for $500,000,000 in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida but was immediately shot down because the complaint “fail[ed] to allege complete diversity.” The docket tells the story of the case history: The complete diversity requirement means “no plaintiff shares a state of citizenship with any defendant.” But Twitter is incorporated in Delaware and Mac Isaac is a Delaware resident. For this reason, the judge said, the court lacked jurisdiction. “According to the Complaint, Defendant made false statements that Plaintiff is a ‘hacker’ in reference to materials obtained by the New York Post and shared on Twitter in an exposé concerning...
    Curtis “Trey” Carswell and his girlfriend, Markita Gibson, were out on an evening walk in September in downtown D.C. when they came across the Trump International Hotel — and wanted to see the inside for the first time. But their attempts to do so were thwarted by hotel officials, according to Carswell, who has since filed a lawsuit against the Trump Old Post Office LLC in D.C. Superior Court over charges of racial discrimination, infliction of emotional distress and breach of contract — all charges that the hotel has denied in its response filed Thursday. Both Carswell and Gibson are Black. The couple’s claims stem from incidents they say occurred the evening of Sept. 8, when Gibson, a self-professed fan of architecture, wanted to see what the Trump hotel’s lobby looked like. It’s the new entryway to the Old Post Office building, which was renovated in 2016 into the...

    Anti-virus pioneer John McAfee was an eccentric when we first featured him in the 2012 article "The Hot Yoga War" and a separate Q&A in which he talked about his life in Belize — where, it turns out, he was wanted for questioning in a murder he swore he didn't commit. In the intervening eight years, he's been many things, including a fugitive from justice and a failed presidential candidate. But now, the role he's playing is inmate: This week, McAfee was arrested in Spain on federal charges, including violation of antifraud provisions and tax evasion. He'll likely have a tough time fighting the latter accusation, given that, according to the BBC, McAfee "has previously expressed his disdain for taxes, tweeting last year that he hadn't filed tax returns for eight years because 'taxation is illegal.'"Related Stories John McAfee: Security Pioneer and Ex-Fugitive's Denver Ties, Presidential Bid John McAfee, software...

    Raverro Stinnett’s life changed drastically in the spring of 2018. The artist, who was waiting for a ride home on public transportation at Union Station after attending a gala at RedLine gallery, was profiled, beaten and left with permanent brain damage by security guards with Allied Universal Security Services, the firm that contracts with the Regional Transportation District to keep the peace at the station. Stinnett wasn't identified in early coverage of the incident, nor when the guards pleaded guilty in December 2018. But that changed earlier this year when he filed a lawsuit against Allied and RTD. Not long after that, George Floyd’s murder at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer blew the lid off the simmering Black Lives Matter movement. That’s all it took for Stinnett’s story to go nationwide. Yet with the exception of boardmember Shontel Lewis, the RTD board has voted to continue working...
