Tom Brady will not attend Wednesday tomorrow’s oral arguments before Judge Berman that start at 10am. The NFL has declined to comment on whether Commissioner Goodell will be there. Neither was required to attend. There is no testimony. This is a chance for lawyers to make oral arguments following their written submissions late Friday, when the NFL asserted the court has no right to interfere into the internal management of a private organization and when the Players Association in turn questioned the structure of the arbitration. Absent a settlement, which is the preferred method of the judge, both sides have urged Berman to rule by Sept. 4, a week before the Patriots first regular season game. And those settlement talks, according to some reports, are at a stalemate.

Jared Fogle, the former Subway spokesperson whose home was raided by federal agents in connection with a child pornography investigation in early July, will indeed plead guilty to possession of child pornography charges. Several computers and DVDs were seized from Fogle’s home during the raid. When word of the raid broke out, Subway immediately ended their relationship with Fogle, despite his denials that he had done anything wrong. Fogle gained national fame after attributing massive weight loss to eating Subway sandwiches. He was a freshman at Indiana University at the time, and later became the key pitchman for the sandwich chain.

Last week Hillary Clinton turned over her private email server to the FBI. The controversy that just won’t go away has increasingly worried Democratic supports and her team. On the other side of the aisle, there are charges that her handling of the emails deserves a criminal investigation, and that she hasn’t been forthcoming in answering questions during the investigation. Whether it’s a political witch hunt, as her supporters claim, or a serious breach of national security protocol, as claimed by others, it has certainly become a lingering albatross around her campaign.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump released details of his immigration policy on Sunday, saying in addition to building a wall to keep out immigrants, he would also end “birthright citizenship” for their children, toughen deportation, and allow in only “the good ones.” Native-born children of immigrants, even those here illegally, have been automatically considered American citizens since the adoption of the 14th amendment in 1868, so overturning that would be a steep chore. Nonetheless, Trump emphasized “they have to go,” and added that families with U.S. born children could return quickly if deemed worthy by the government. Trump pulls back from the campaign trail Monday, and heads to NYC’s Center Street courtroom complex, to take care of some jury duty responsibility in Manhattan.
