Second trial begins over occupation of Oregon wildlife refuge
Yahoo News - about 1 year
By Courtney Sherwood PORTLAND, Ore. (Reuters) - A prosecutor told jurors on Tuesday that four men who took part in the armed occupation of a federal wildlife refuge in Oregon last year in a land rights protest were on trial for their actions, not their beliefs. Last October, another trial over the 41-day standoff ended with the acquittal of anti-government activist Ammon Bundy and six of his followers, who cast their protest as a patriotic act of civil disobedience in opposition to U.S. government control over millions of acres of public lands in the West. Jason Patrick, of Georgia, Duane Ehmer of Oregon, Jake Ryan of Montana and Darryl Thorn of Washington state all face multiple charges of trespassing, conspiracy to impede federal employees through intimidation and tampering with vehicles and equipment at the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge in rural eastern Oregon.

Lunch with a Legend: Bruce Dern
Huffington Post - about 4 years
After a best actor award at this year's Cannes Film Festival, there's no stopping Bruce Dern. As Woody in Alexander Payne's masterpiece "Nebraska," featured in Toronto, New York, and the Hamptons Film Festivals, he's a doddering but endearing old fool who takes seriously one of those announcements that he's a sweepstakes winner, and convinces his son to drive him from Billings to Omaha to pick up his millions. With old school modesty, Dern says that the obstacle to making this film which took a long time--he received the script 10 years ago this week--was not about casting him, a quasi-bankable character actor in the lead role, but that it's shot in black and white. At lunch at Il Gattopardo this week, he applauded Paramount for letting Payne make his film the way he wanted to make it. And now, there's no question that Dern will join a line-up that includes Robert Redford for "All is Lost," contenders for the Best Actor Oscar. A fount of film history, with stories galore, Dern will t...

GalTime: Death of the Neighborhood Sperm Donor?

How one celebrity's legal battle could change how and where women shop for sperm in California. By Stacy Feinberg for GalTime.com Actor Jason Patric is a celebrity who isn't often in the press. It surprised me to see him all over the news recently, giving interviews about his custody battle with a former girlfriend -- and about a new law that would help people like him get the parental rights they think they deserve. My husband and I were watching a TV interview with Mr. Patric, showing photos and videos of himself with his biological child. He said his ex-girlfriend was "keeping his son from him" and that new legislation could possibly help him gain parental rights -- something he said he wants desperately. Frankly, the interview was rife with inconsistencies. As a family lawyer, I knew something important was missing from the conversation and decided to do some research. Here's what I found: Patric sued his former girlfriend, Danielle Schreiber, seeking parental...
