Houston man citesreligious rights in lawsuit against city’s ban on feeding homeless
houstonchronicle.com / Fri, 14 Apr 2017 01:08:04 UT
Religious rights violation cited as major cause for the litigation [...] Bryant, who describes himself as a devout Christian, contends the city's charitable feeding ordinance prohibits this and also violates his religious rights. The city describes the ordinance as a way to uphold food safety and protect the rights of private property owners, but some homeless advocates view it as a way to regulate the tradition of charity. Bryant agrees with critics of the ordinance, stating in his suit that it "regulates a natural expression of human compassion" and prohibits him "from sharing food and water with those that need help." Bryant is requesting a jury trial for his case and ultimately wants the ordinance thrown out.

U.S. Supreme Court rules against Houston man paralyzed in 2010 police shooting
houstonchronicle.com / Tue, 25 Apr 2017 01:49:56 UT
The nation's highest court has rejected attempts to revive a civil rights lawsuit brought by a Houston paint contractor who was shot in the back and paralyzed by a police offer in 2010. In declining to hear the case, the U.S. Supreme Court on Monday agreed that lower courts acted properly in granting Houston Police Officer Chris Thompson qualified immunity in the shooting incident, which took place following a late-night traffic stop on the Southwest Freeway. Sotomayor, joined in dissent by Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, wrote that issuing summary judgment in favor of police is appropriate only when significant facts are not in dispute. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in June 2016 that a lower judge had properly dismissed Salazar-Limon's lawsuit because of the threat perceived by Thompson, who testified that he had been pushed toward freeway traffic before a combative Salazar-Limon turned away.
