Hartford Courant wins appeal over secrecy in juvenile crimes

first_imgNEW YORK (AP) — The Hartford Courant triumphed Monday in its challenge to a Connecticut law sealing some juvenile court proceedings, including records in Kennedy cousin Michael Skakel’s murder case. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled Monday in Manhattan. It rejected a 2019 Connecticut law that kept secret the identities of juveniles when their cases were transferred to adult court. Records would only be unsealed if they were convicted. A three-judge appeals panel said the law was not narrow enough to be constitutional. The decision came in a lawsuit challenging the law filed by the newspaper and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press. The Connecticut attorney general’s office said it was considering next steps.last_img read more

Chelsea winger Hudson-Odoi making great progress: Frank Lampard

first_imgLONDON: Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, who became the first Premier League player to test positive for the coronavirus, is making ‘great progress’ in his recovery, manager Frank Lampard said.The 19-year-old’s positive test last week had prompted the London club to partially close their Cobham training center, with the first-team squad and coaching staff asked for self-isolate as a precaution.“I’m happy to say that in Callum’s case, he has made great progress and almost feels his usual self, which is obviously the news we all want to hear,” Lampard told the club’s website.“I’m aware that not everyone can or will recover from this virus, so I urge the football and sporting community to continue to act responsibly and look out for the health of others.”Chelsea said their training facility had been reopened for those who did not have recent close contact with Hudson-Odoi.The league has been suspended until April 4 because of the outbreak that has virtually shut down world sport.Globally, the flu-like virus has infected over 190,000 people and killed more than 7,500.“We still don’t know when competitive football will restart, but it isn’t worth worrying about that too much at the moment,” Lampard added.“We all miss football but right now it’s about acting responsibly and in the best interests of society.” (Agencies)Also Read: Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta, Callum of Chelsea test positiveAlso Watch: KMSS leader Akhil Gogoi granted bail as NIA fails to submit charge-sheetlast_img read more
