A jointly-produced filing between Apple and Epic in its ongoing “Fortnite” courtroom saga reveals issues with discovery on both sides ahead of a case management conference, with each claiming the other isn’t providing the required documentation.

In the Joint Case Management Statement filed on Monday, in advance of the case management conference scheduled for October 19, Epic and Apple both have issues with how the other company is handling the discovery portion of the lawsuits. Each company accuses the other of being uncooperative in different ways.

In Epic’s portion of the statement, it accuses Apple of failing to provide all of the documentation it needs, namely that Apple’s list of custodians that documents are supplied about does not include two prominent figures in Apple’s history. Of the six people listed, Epic spotted that none of them are co-founder and late CEO Steve Jobs and current CEO Tim Cook.

The Legal Aid Society is threatening to sue the de Blasio administration for failing to provide internet access to homeless children in shelters, effectively blocking their ability to participate in remote learning during Covid-19.

Legal Aid and the law firm Milbank, representing the Coalition for the Homeless, sent a demand letter on Thursday to schools Chancellor Richard Carranza and Department of Homeless Services Administrator Joslyn Carter, calling on the city to remedy internet access problems at the Flatlands Family Residence in Brooklyn and other DHS facilities with school-age children.

“In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, internet access is not a luxury; it is a basic prerequisite to entering the ‘virtual classroom’ that has been necessitated by the virus,” the letter, shared with POLITICO, said.

A website dedicated to publishing pictures of and identifying Covid-19-related skin rashes has been criticised for sharing just two BAME examples.

The British Association of Dermatologists’ Covid-19 Skin Patterns website features around 400 images of Covid-19 associated rashes, but the collection features very few pictures of people with darker skin tones.

It shares images of rashes which were gathered by the Covid Symptom Study app in response to growing evidence that they are a side effect of the disease.

The list ranges from prickly heat and chickenpox-type rashes to raised itchy hives and chilblain-like “Covid fingers and toes.”

Evidence from the app showed the rashes were present in around 9 per cent of app users who had tested positive for Covid-19. Meanwhile, a sixth of children experienced a rash and no other symptoms.

A website dedicated to sharing images of Covid-19 related skin rashes to help doctors and patients identify whether an unusual rash might be a sign of coronavirus infection has been criticised for containing just two images of black or brown skin.

The British Association of Dermatologists’ (BAD) Covid-19 Skin Patterns website features 400 images of Covid-associated rashes, from prickly heat and chickenpox-type rashes, to raised itchy hives, and chilblain-like ‘Covid fingers and toes’. They were gathered by the Covid Symptom Study app in response to growing evidence that skin rashes are a key feature of the disease, present in around 9% of app users testing positive for Covid-19. In children they may be even more predictive, with a sixth of children experiencing a rash and no other symptoms.
