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.

Back in January, medical device company Masimo levied a lawsuit against Apple, accusing the company of stealing trade secrets and improperly using Masimo inventions related to health monitoring in the Apple Watch.


Masimo is known for its pulse oximetry devices, and Apple just recently debuted the Apple Watch Series 6 with blood oxygen monitoring capabilities. Following the launch of the Series 6, Masimo has accused Apple of attempting to delay the legal proceedings in order to sell more watches and gain a more dominant share of the smart watch market.

As highlighted by Bloomberg, Apple has not officially responded to the original January lawsuit, instead filing requests to dismiss the trade secret part of the case and to have Masimo patents invalidated. Apple has asked the trial court to put the case on hold until the patent issue is resolved, which could take a significant amount of time.

(Bloomberg) — Apple Inc. is trying to delay a legal fight over allegedly stolen blood-oxygen monitoring technology in its latest watch so it can gain a more dominant share of the smartwatch market, medical-sensor maker Masimo Corp. said in a court filing late Monday.

Blood-oxygen monitoring is a key feature of the latest Apple Watch Series 6 announced on Sept. 15. Masimo and its spinoff Cercacor Laboratories Inc. had sued in January, accusing Apple of promising a working relationship only to steal secret information and hire away key employees, including Cercacor’s former chief technology officer and Masimo’s chief medical

President Trump potentially breached legal authority by issuing an emergency order to remove TikTok from U.S. app stores, according to a federal judge that granted an injunction against the directive on Sunday.

U.S. District Court Judge Carl Nichols of the District of Columbia in an opinion released on Monday said Trump “likely exceeded the lawful bounds” of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act, reports Variety. A day earlier, Nichols granted an injunction to halt the impending ban.

The IEEPA allows the president to deem an entity “an unusual and extraordinary threat, which has its source in whole or substantial part outside the United States, to the national security, foreign policy, or economy of the United States.” Designed solely for emergency action, the act provides authority to freeze assets and circumvent transactions related to the threatening agency.

As Nichols notes, however, there are two exceptions to the

The high-profile legal conflict between Fortnite developer Epic Games and Apple continues today, with a federal court hearing that may resolve some of the most pressing questions in the case, including Epic’s request for a preliminary injunction that would put Fortnite back on the App Store.

According to the Wall Street Journal, court observers suggest that this hearing could foretell the likely conclusion of the conflict. The ruling will probably also determine whether or not Apple can block third-party apps such as Epic’s Unreal Engine from its platform, a move that would disadvantage many third-party developers who make games in the engine. If the judge rules in Epic’s favor, one legal expert says, Apple is likely to settle in the next six months; if it goes the other way, the case could continue for years.

The key question in the case is whether or not Apple’s App Store practices–including their

After that point, the White House will take additional steps to ban the app from all U.S. users. President Trump has said he would back off the ban if TikTok, which he views as a security risk, is sold to a U.S. owner (Oracle and Walmart are bidding for it) and ByteDance divests itself completely from the company.

It’s unclear what grounds Nichols ruled on. His opinion will be unsealed later today after both parties have a chance to review it for sensitive information. 

TikTok’s lawyers argued during the Sunday hearing that a ban on downloads would irreparably harm its business and the action was unnecessary as it tries to iron out a deal that meets White House approval. The Justice Department argued that a ban on downloads would leave TikTok’s business largely intact while preventing any new users from potentially putting their data at risk.
