Professor Bret Weinstein, a leftist, refused to participate in the evacuation of white people (only) from the campus of Evergreen State College and sued the college for the hostile work environment he alleged that he and his wife subsequently suffered. Without admitting that charge, the state-supported institution that already faces a $2.1 million deficit and layoffs, is going to cough up a cool half million bucks to avoid the expense, spectacle, and risk of a jury trial.

[Editor’s note: So the taxpayers of Washington will now need to cough up half a million dollars to settle the claim. Is the “University” administration to suffer any consequences for their idiotic policies? No, they get to enjoy their inflated salaries, benefits and can look forward to their generous pensions, all the while continuing their war on the civil society by indoctrinating another generation of ignorant social justice warriors.]
Police in Ireland received a request to investigate whether any allegations were made against former Seattle Mayor Ed Murray while he lived overseas.

[Editor’s Note: Given the avalanche of allegations against Murray, I’m sure it will not be a surprise to learn that there were allegations and the likely victim is a kid with either a checkered past or family instability. The mold has been cast.]
NEW YORK (AP) Fifteen states and the District of Columbia sued the U.S. government Wednesday to block President Donald Trump’s plan to end protection against deportation for young immigrants who New York’s attorney general labeled the best of America.

[Ed.: Oh, this should be good on how a federal judge magically rules that Obama’s unilateral action (read: unconstitutional) to create DACA is completely kosher and then rules that the same branch that created it cannot dismantle it.]

[Ed.: We believe it’s time for your retirement party Detective. This is a cop who doesn’t know to use his authority with prudence. This is clearly a cowboy cop that shouldn’t have a badge anymore and we are fans of the men and women in blue here at EvergreenStateNews.com, but not this one.]
A Washington state high school football coach took advantage of his position when he prayed on the field after games, and he’s not entitled to immediately get his job back, a federal appeals court said Wednesday.

Two Seattle police officers are suing Kshama Sawant for “having their reputations ruined by an ambitious politician, doing so for personal gain.”

SEATTLE (AP) – A group of public health experts and others are challenging a proposed King County initiative that would ban safe injection sites for drug users.

[Ed.: Oh, is polling telling you that your precious, stupid liberal idea is going to go down in flames if you don’t sue and have the initiative quashed before you get to de facto legalize heroin in King County? Any judge who looks at this with a skeptical eye toward any health benefits of this crackpot program has to side with the sane people who do not want supervised injection sites because it doesn’t work and it draws a criminal drug element.]
The Seattle City Council unanimously passed legislation that will bar landlords from considering criminal records when renting property.

[Ed.: Again the Seattle City Council overreaches. It’s like they’ve got a full-employment program for land use attorneys going on there because Seattle’s going to get their asses sued off. So, now we’re destigmatizing criminality. It should be hard to find a place to live if you’ve committed a felony. You’re potentially a danger to your fellow renters and a landlord should know if there’s a potentially heightened risk from a new tenant. Just wait until the first landlord or tenant is harmed by a felon who was not known to be so. The city’s going to lose their shorts in court(s).]
