Arpaio Sues CNN, Rolling Stone, HuffPost For Coverage Of Contempt Conviction

Larry Klayman is representing Arpaio in this bogus lawsuit https://talkingpointsmemo.com/news/arpaio-lawsuit-cnn-rolling-stone-huffpost

Former Maricopa County sheriff and presidential pardon recipient Joe Arpaio sued several news organizations and journalists for defamation and false light on Monday for allegedly misreporting the details of his contempt of court conviction.

But at least two of the three errors Apraio cited have been corrected, contrary to his suit’s claims.

In July 2017, Arpaio was convicted of contempt of court, a misdemeanor, for continuing his practice of targeting immigrants with traffic stops, defying a judge’s order. A month later, President Donald Trump issued the first pardon of his administration to Arpaio, saying that his “life and career … exemplify selfless public service.”

In the 10-page filing in Washington, D.C. District Court on Monday, Arpaio cites one CNN TV segment and articles from Rolling Stone and HuffPost, accusing them of recklessly getting the details of his case wrong. He also accuses them of failing to issue corrections — which is untrue, at least for Rolling Stone and HuffPost.

US appeals court won't immediately allow Trump asylum ban

Source: AP

The ban is inconsistent with an existing U.S. law and an attempted end-run around Congress, a panel of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said in a 2-1 decision.

“Just as we may not, as we are often reminded, ‘legislate from the bench,’ neither may the Executive legislate from the Oval Office,” 9th Circuit Judge Jay Bybee, a nominee of Republican President George W. Bush, wrote for the majority.

A spokesman for the U.S. Department of Justice, Steven Stafford, did not have comment. But he referred to an earlier statement that called the asylum system broken and said the department looked forward to “continuing to defend the Executive Branch’s legitimate and well-reasoned exercise of its authority to address the crisis at our southern border.”

At issue is President Donald Trump’s Nov. 9 proclamation that barred anyone who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border between official ports of entry from seeking asylum. Trump issued the proclamation in response to caravans of migrants approaching the border.
