Tom Brady is due in a New York court Wednesday where he wants a judge to vacate his deflate-gate suspension. The NFL upheld it and will argue that Brady was afforded all the rights afforded players per the Collective Bargaining Agreement. Brady’s union will argue that the star quarterback was given no notice of potential discipline and that the commissioner was unfair in overseeing his appeal. Aaron will be in court for the hearing and can give you a preview.

How was your last flight? A report released by the Department of Transportation says Americans filed official complaints 9,542 times in the first half of this year. That’s an increase of more than 20% compared to last year. It’s the usual stuff – mishandled baggage, delayed and canceled flights. This report also says the nation’s largest airlines had an on-time arrival rate of about 75 percent in June up from 72 percent a year ago but down from May. Which airlines ranked and which tanked? Scott has the round up.

Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush launched an attack on Democrat Hillary Clinton’s handling of Iraq when she was secretary of state, saying she must bear some of the blame for the rise of Islamic State militants. The Clinton campaign responded by saying the former governor is attempting to re-write history. Meanwhile, in today’s Trump news, the presidential candidate made an address in Michigan Tuesday night. We’ll hear if he’s at all backing down. Karen Travers has all the latest.

We’ve all been warned about the dangers of distracted driving. But what about distracted walking? A government report released Monday highlights an unsettling trend: After decades of decline, pedestrian fatalities are once again on the rise. And “petextrians” — people who text while walking — may be partly to blame. According to a Governors Highway Safety Association (GHSA) report, since 2009, pedestrian fatalities have actually increased by 15 percent — climbing to 4,735 in 2013. That’s one pedestrian death every two hours.

Just because most of the nation’s capital is on vacation doesn’t mean we don’t have politics to report! First: our daily Donald story focuses on his will-he-or-won’t-he run as a third party candidate. Mr. Trump told ABC News on Monday that he has no imminent plans to rule out a third-party run for president (at least not yet). And breaking news out of Michigan: Melissa Gilbert, who played the beloved Laura Ingalls Wilder on TV’s “Little House on The Prairie” in the 70s and 80s, has announced that she will be running for Congress in Michigan’s 8th District. Pa would be so proud of Half-Pint!
