Turns out Shaun White, world's best snowboarder, can be a creep. A hero would cop to his own bad behavior
His Olympics performance cements him as the world's greatest snowboarder, but Shaun White has gotten caught up in the Me Too moment. The drummer for his band, Bad Things, accused him in a 2016 lawsuit of sexually harassment, wage theft and wrongful termination. The suit was settled confidentially.
Does recalling the judge who gave Brock Turner a light sentence for sexual assault imperil judicial independence?
I wrote that concerns over judicial independence in the recall of Santa Clara County Superior Court Judge Aaron Persky are "hogwash." Legal scholars, including UC Berkeley Law School Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, took me to task. I disagree with them.
