Wade ruling, triggering a state law that has banned virtually all abortions in Texas. “Texas chooses the baby’s life over the mother’s,” she said.news.yahoo.com

1-year sentence for angry fan who made football game threat
Federal Judge Algenon Marbley had harsh words for Rippy during Tuesday's sentencing done via video conference because of the coronavirus pandemic. An indictment unsealed late last year in federal court in Columbus accused Rippy of “electronic communication” threat from California during the game between Ohio State and the University of Michigan on Nov. 24, 2018. The game was played in Columbus that year, and Ohio State won 62-39. Instead, Rippy's threat during the Ohio State game sent authorities into a panic as they tried to figure out where he was and whether he posed an imminent threat to a stadium filled with 100,000 people, Knight said. Rippy, a Michigan fan who grew up in Grand Rapids, Michigan, moved at age 27 to California, where he worked in fast food but couldn't maintain a residence, the government said.
New scientific discovery holds potential for treating incurable neurological disorders
A new scientific discovery is providing a glimmer of hope that the effects of neurological conditions that are currently without a cure could someday be reversed. Mark Zimmer was an athlete all his life, but when he began experiencing weakness in his legs and tripping over his own feet, he knew something wasn’t right. In a new study, they discovered a novel immune cell that not only preserves nerve fibers but can even reverse nerve damage and restore function. Right now, it’s just research in a lab but they hope it will lead to actual treatments down the road. They hope they can infuse the cells into patients as a potential treatment for neurological damage.
Ohio State Settles More Sexual Abuse Cases Bringing Totals To Over $46M
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — To settle lawsuits by about two dozen more survivors over decades-old sexual abuse by a now-deceased team doctor, Richard Strauss, Ohio State University will pay $5.8 million — bringing the total settlements so far to $46.7 million for 185 survivors, the university announced Tuesday.

Court reviewer: Ohio State broke law by withholding records
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Ohio State University violated state public records law by intentionally withholding old documents from one of the men alleging decades-old sexual misconduct by a school doctor, according to the conclusion reached Tuesday by the official who reviewed the resulting legal dispute. In 2018, alumnus Steve Snyder-Hill requested records related to his having complained about being abused by Dr. Richard Strauss in the mid-1990s. The delay violated state law that requires the sharing of public records “within a reasonable period of time,” Ohio Court of Claims special master Jeff Clark concluded in a report filed for the court. It recommends the court adopt that finding and have the university pay Snyder-Hill's $25 filing fee and any other costs incurred in bringing the complaint. Clark rejected the university's defense of the deliberate delay, which argued in part that Ohio State had always been committed to making Strauss-related records public but worried that sharing them bit by bit might hurt the investigation.

U of M Abuse Victims Hire Lawyers
ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) Several men alleging sexual abuse by a deceased University of Michigan doctor have retained law firms that are representing accusers who sued Michigan State University and Ohio State University in similar cases, attorneys said Monday. It is unclear if the University of Michigan will see the magnitude of lawsuits facing Ohio State, which are pending, and Michigan State, which settled with hundreds of victims for $500 million. It was not made public until last week, drawing criticism from lawyers and the first woman to publicly accuse Nassar of sexual abuse.
