A group of Republican and Democratic senators are close to reaching a deal on gun legislation and are expected to drop it on Tuesday after spending the long weekend resolving issues between the two sides.

The group of negotiators – Sens. Chris Murphy, Connecticut, and Kyrsten Sinema, Arizona, on the Democratic and Sens side. John Cornyn, Texas, and Thom Tillis, NC, on the Republican side, had hoped to have the text of the legislation released Monday, but nothing passed.

A GOP source said Politics that negotiators ran into a hitch over the Hyde Amendment, which bans the use of federal funds to pay for abortions. Republicans fought to keep the amendment in place while Democrats tried to defeat it.

Cornyn told ABC on Tuesday morning that he thinks a piece of legislation could be released today, “hopefully soon,” but the bill is on hold for “details.”

If the Senate moves ahead with the procedure on Tuesday, the chamber could vote on the bill by the end of the week. Otherwise, there is little hope of a bill being passed before the two-week Fourth of July holiday which begins at the end of this week.

Lawmakers rushed to cobble together a deal after a recent series of mass shootings, including in Uvalde, Texas, where an 18-year-old gunman mowed down 19 children and two teachers.

Another provision that caused problems last week was the so-called “boyfriend loophole”. Cornyn told CNN last week that the flaw “continues to be a challenge” and that one option is to “remove” it from the package.

Democrats lobbied to include the provision in the reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act earlier this year, but it was removed under intense lobbying by gun rights groups before Biden signed on. the law earlier this year.

Current law prohibits people convicted of domestic violence from owning a firearm if the violence is directed at a spouse, partner they live with, or partner with whom they share children. Democratic lawmakers have pushed the provision to include dating partners, convicted stalkers or anyone under protective orders.

The Washington Post reports this wording closing the boyfriend loophole has been worked out and is part of the legislation.

Elements of the framework also include expanded background checks for people aged 18-21, funding to encourage states to implement red flag laws, funding for mental health and school safety and penalties for “straw buying” or third party gun purchases.

Though the bill sidesteps many Democratic gun control priorities, Cornyn was still booed this weekend at the Texas GOP convention in his hometown of Houston.

“Democrats pushed for an assault weapons ban, I said no,” Cornyn said. “They tried to get a new three week mandatory waiting period for all gun purchases, I said no. Universal background checks, magazine bans, licensing requirements, the list goes on and on. And I said no, no, 1,000 times no,” he told the hostile crowd.

Spectators were chanting “no red flags” and “say no to Cornyn,” according to Houston Public Media.

“We reject the so-called ‘bipartisan gun deal’ and rebuke Senators John Cornyn (R-Texas), Thom Tillis (RN.C.), Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), Bill Cassidy ( R-La.), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Lindsey Graham 1601 (RS.C.), Rob Portman (R-Ohio), Mitt Romney (R-Utah) and Pat Toomey (R-Pa.),’ a resolution passed by delegates at the Texas GOP convention reads.

Cornyn, when asked about the boos on Tuesday, said he was “all about people exercising their First Amendment rights” and that it didn’t sway him in the negotiations.

Early Thursday afternoon, Revlon Inc. was broken down a brutal 84.5% over a period of one year.

A bench of Justice AS Bopanna and Justice Vikram Nath have three days at UP State to file their affidavit in the latest “bulldozer” case.

The Holiday Bench was hearing a request filed by Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind, seeking instructions from the State of Uttar Pradesh to ensure that no further demolition is carried out in the State without following due process. .

The claims are made in its earlier petition against the demolition campaign in Delhi’s Jahangirpuri. On April 21, another chamber of the Supreme Court had issued an opinion and ordered the status quo against the demolition campaign launched by the North Delhi Municipal Corporation (NDMC) in the Jahangirpuri district of Delhi.

In this case, the claimant sought to bring a claim against those responsible for the demolished houses, allegedly in violation of the rule of law and municipal laws enacted by the state of Uttar Pradesh.

According to this report by Live Act“the relief in the claim filed through Barrister Kabir Dixit and Barrister Sarim Naved had also sought instructions from the State of Uttar Pradesh that no hasty action be taken in the district of Kanpur against the residential or commercial property of any defendant in criminal proceedings as an extra-legal punitive measure”.

Chander Uday Singh, representing the petitioner, argued that according to Section 27 of the UP Planning Act, at least 15 days’ notice must be given to the responsible person or landlord.

Singh said that after the violence in Kanpur, a number of people in authority said in the media that the property of the suspects/accused would be confiscated and demolished, including, according to him, the chief minister of the state who declared in the media “that the houses of the defendants would be razed using bulldozers”.

He said: “It’s appalling. We did not see that in this country, neither during the state of emergency nor in pre-independence India. Not only the person’s house, their parents’ houses, etc. are demolished. This cannot be tolerated in a Republic and in a country where the rule of law reigns.”

The State of UP, however, opposed the demands, mainly arguing that Jamiat Ulama-I-Hind did not locus standi in the matter. Solicitor General Tushar Mehta argued that since there is an allegation of violation of the laws, an aggrieved party should come forward, stating that demolition action has been taken against them, without giving notice, as a vendetta. for their involvement in the riots.

To this, the Court replied: “We must be aware that people whose houses are demolished may not be able to approach the Court”.

However, Harish Salve, representing the government, pointed out that in Prayagraj, the notice was issued in May, well before the riots and subsequently, on May 25, the demolition order was passed.

He also pointed out that the said property is precious and therefore the petitioners are not the ones who could not go to court. He asked for three days to put the files under oath.

The state argued that a framework ordinance limiting demolitions in the state of UP should NOT be passed. The state’s argument was that since the case involves an individual whose home was demolished, the court should hear the state’s side and then render judgment. The state requested three days to file its affidavit showing that the notice was served within the legal time limits.

The panel agreed and gave the state three days to file its affidavit and case by Tuesday, June 21.

The IRS has always asked S Corp shareholders to attach informal schedules to their tax returns to report their stock and debt. Starting with the returns for 2021, the IRS requires you to attach a new form: the 7203, “S Corporation Shareholder Stock and Debt Basis Limitations”.

The form is required for shareholders reporting a loss or who received an S corp distribution, received an S corp loan repayment, or sold some or all of their stock, said Michael J. Greenwald, CPA, partner and head of corporate taxation. at Friedman LLP in New York.

A 7203 is also required of S corp shareholders claiming a deduction for an S corp loss or loss that was disallowed in a previous year due to basic limitations, Timothy Schuster said. CPA and Senior Executive at EisnerAmper’s Private Business Services Group in Iselin, NJ


“The IRS is trying to standardize the reporting of basic information for a shareholder of an S corporation,” Schuster said, adding that the form replaces the “Three-Part Worksheet for Determining Stock and Debt Basis of the shareholder”.

“So the form is required even for mundane situations like AAA distributions or shareholder loan repayments,” said Nathan Smith, national tax office manager for CBIZ MHM in Clearwater, Florida.

“This is a broad class of transactions that would affect many shareholders of S corporations,” added Kevin Powers, partner at Crowe LLP in Simsbury, Connecticut. “The IRS is casting a pretty wide net.”

Why now?

“The IRS is serious about core issues, both for S Corporation shareholders and LLC partners/members,” Greenwald said. “They believe that because the base is not accurately tracked, losses are inappropriately deducted and distributions in excess of the base escape tax.”

Smith added: “Interestingly, there is no comparable disclosure requirement for partners who hold interests in the partnership. This may be because K-1s issued by partnerships are now required to disclose tax capital information to each partner. [and this information] arguably provides information comparable to the basic information on Form 7203.”

Powers added that shareholders are advised to follow their base in S corporation stock and debt. [but] the IRS did not formally require shareholders to report this basis with their personal tax returns until 2018.

One of the advantages of using the form is the ability to separately identify the base of different stock blocks. “For example, a taxpayer may have acquired S Corporation stock directly and by inheritance from a relative or subsequent purchase from another shareholder,” Greenwald said. “The ability to establish a separate base for each block of shares may result in less gain on partial share sales because the higher base shares can be identified as those sold.”

While tabs can be a welcome addition to File Explorer, Microsoft is experimenting with some dynamic widget tweaks on the taskbar that won’t appeal to everyone. Live content will now be displayed for latest news alerts, sports and financial widgets. The idea is to give the user very quick access to information “when something important is happening”, but which can be consumed at a glance.

from also,-for-speed department

Could Paramount Pictures have actually lost the copyrights to Top Gun, even as it released a new Top Gun movie? It’s the demand for a new lawsuit that gets pretty deep into the copyright weeds, tackling two ridiculous topics we like to write about on Techdirt: termination rights and movie rights.

For many years now, we’ve been talking about the confusing mess that is the copyright termination right. The whole concept behind them is kinda weird, and it’s sort of an escape valve attempt to try to justify why the copyright terms are so ridiculously long and why most copyrights get kicked out of the hands of actual creators to giant intermediaries like record labels or movie studios. The idea behind rescission rights, in theory, is that it allows the true creator to reclaim the copyright after 35 years.

Of course, for decades now, the legacy copyright industry, which has benefited so much from endless copyright combined with its ability to forcefully weaponize innocent young creators into giving up their rights to author, fights against termination rights, trying to make it impossible to exercise and play other sketchy games (the bulk of these games, of course, date back to when the current CEO of the RIAA was a congressman, and slipped a few words in an unrelated bill in the middle of the night to strip musicians of their termination rights – something to remember whenever the RIAA claims to be defending artists’ rights).

However, in most fights for termination rights, there is no one to cheer for. The whole thing tends to be a lame cash grab on all sides, although in most cases I’d rather the real creator end up with the copyright. Probably the lawyer who has done the most to exercise creator termination rights is Marc Toberoff, whom we’ve talked about a number of times already. And when he teams up with former 9th Circuit Chief Judge Alex Kozinski to file a lawsuit, you should probably take him seriously.

And that’s why I’m kind of shocked that the trial here…is…so weak.

The trial in question, first highlighted by Eriq Gardner at Puck Newsis a claim by Shosh and Yuval Yonay against Paramount Pictures, asserting that new Top Gun movie is copyright infringement. The history of this case is a bit complex. In 1983, Ehud Yonay wrote an article called “Top Guns” for the California magazine. The story was about a naval training base where Navy pilots were trained. Shosh is Ehud’s widow. Yuval is their son. So, this is yet another one of those lawsuits in which an artist’s heirs try to profit. Anyway, Ehud wrote the article, and the article got some attention.

Paramount then licensed the story and used it as the basis for the popular and highly quotable 1986 movie “Top Gun” to an annoying degree, starring Tom Cruise, Kelly McGillis, Val Kilmer, Anthony Edwards and a host of others. .

So, here we come into the issue of movie rights. As we’ve discussed, they’re sort of a weird subspecies of copyright law. You cannot copyright facts. And most movies based on magazine articles don’t copy any from the copyrighted prose of the article. And so “film rights” are really just a kind of insurance policy. It tends to do two things: (1) keep the author of the original article from saying how unfair this whole thing is, and (2) maybe, but not always, get the writer to at least help a little about the history of the film. to make sure it makes sense. And that’s all. There’s not a whole lot of actual “rights” involved, as movies rarely have much to do with actual copyrighted material.

And, indeed, that seems to be the case with the “Top Guns” story, which was not about Maverick and Goose, but as the complaint itself points out, two real pilots with entirely different nicknames.

Rather than just focusing on the dry historical details of the training school, the story focuses on the pilots (the “Top Guns”) and their personal experiences, highlighting two in particular, a hotshot pilot (“Yogi “) and its radio interception. officer (“Possum”), as they are hammered into a team. He skillfully selects stories from the pilots’ personal lives and the precise details of their “jumps” (flying maneuvers) to construct a fictionalized, first-hand experience of what it is like to be a member of a squadron of Navy elite fighter.

So, let’s be clear here. Nowhere is it even suggested that the original film even copied much from the original article. The name was slightly different, but the characters were very different. And while the complaint notes that the story and film gave “accounts of the pilots’ personal lives” and “specific details of their ‘jumps,'” note that the complaint does not suggest that the film’s accounts have copied any of the copyrighted content from the original story. Instead, they just presented a similar concept and idea, but as we keep pointing out – and as Kozinski knows very well – you can only copyright the specific expression, not the idea.

In an attempt to circumvent this staggering level of weakness in the case, Toberoff and Kozinski argue, weakly enough for two such attorneys, that the film is a “derivative work” of the original story. And then, that the new film Top Gun: Maverick is a derivative work of the first film. And…then a few years ago when the termination period opened, the Yonays terminated the copyright assignment they had originally given to Paramount for the original film.

Of course, this also brings us to another mess in copyright law that we love to cover: the derivative works mess. Derivative works sometimes spoil the whole idea/expression issue, as often a “derivative work” is not a copy of any of the actually copyrighted parts of the original work. But… uh… usually it’s more than that. This is usually at least characters that the author can claim were covered by copyright.

Here, there is none of that. There is not even an attempt to claim that anything was actually copied. There’s just a bunch of hand gestures, which looks really bad for Toberoff and Kozinski, and who I would expect better from. At best, it looks like something of a shakedown to simply try to get Paramount to pay to avoid embarrassment. At worst, it looks like a mad lawsuit from the two lawyers, in hopes that they can somehow get this through a jury to dazzle them with allegations about the big Hollywood baddie. “stealing” this poor family.

They’re great lawyers who know what they’re doing, but this feels like a ridiculously weak lawsuit and little more than an attempt to cash in on the new movie.

The heirs of the writer whose article inspired the 1986 action movie ‘Top Gun’ have sued Paramount Pictures over copyright infringement in the sequel hit, “Top Gun: Maverick”.

According to a lawsuit filed in federal court in Los Angeles, the Paramount Global unit failed to repurchase the rights to Ehud Yonay’s 1983 “Top Guns” article from the family before publishing the “spin-off” sequel. “.

The lawsuit filed by Shosh Yonay and Yuval Yonay, who live in Israel and are Ehud’s widow and son respectively, seek unspecified damages, including profits from “Top Gun: Maverick,” and to block the distribution of the film or other sequels.

Paramount said in a statement, “These allegations are without merit and we will vigorously defend ourselves.”

“Top Gun: Maverick” is this year’s biggest box office hit, grossing $291 million in North America and $548.6 million worldwide in its first 10 days of release.

The high-flying action flick directed by Joseph Kosinski received strong reviews and Tom Cruise reprises his role as US Navy test pilot Pete “Maverick” Mitchell.

It’s already Cruise’s highest-grossing film domestically, surpassing 2005’s “War of the Worlds.”

According to Monday’s lawsuit, Paramount secured exclusive rights to the movie “Top Guns,” published in the California magazine’s May 1983 issue, before making the 1986 original, and even gave credit.

But the Yonays said Paramount deliberately ignored how the copyright reverted to them in January 2020, “mocking” federal copyright law.

The Yonays said they sent Paramount a cease-and-desist letter on May 11 and in response, Paramount denied that the sequel stemmed from the 1983 story.

They said Paramount had also argued that the sequel was “sufficiently completed” by the time the copyright was reinstated, in a “dishonest attempt” to qualify for an exception to their claim. The Yonays said the sequel was completed in May 2021.

Lawyers for the Yonays did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Reached by phone, a woman who identified herself as Shosh Yonay said her son Yuval declined to comment.

American actress Valerie Bertinelli’s ex-husband Tom Vitale has asked the actress for child support after the two are set to go their separate ways after an 11-year marriage.

According to People, the 58-year-old sought spousal support from Bertinelli in court documents filed June 2 in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Valerie Bertinelli’s Estranged Husband Tom Vitale Files for Spousal Support in Divorce, Disagrees on Separation Date – Radar Online dlvr.it/SRjQc5 https://t.co/8Badi8hoMx

Vitale, who works in finance, also asked the court to stop Valerie Bertinelli from seeking spousal support and to reconsider the prenup agreement reached in December 2010, before their marriage in 2011.

According to court documents, USA Today reported that the prenup is still in effect and fully binding on the parties.


Valérie Bertinelli spoke about irreconcilable differences during her split from Tom Vitale

The wild love The actress filed for separation from Vitale in November 2021, citing “irreconcilable differences”, before filing for divorce in May 2022.

After dating for years, the Hot in Cleveland The actress and Vitale tied the knot on New Years Day 2011 at their home in Malibu, Calif. Bertinelli told People in January 2011 that she felt “happier than ever” after marrying Vitale. She says:

“I could have spent the rest of my life with Tom and not be married, but I wanted to call him ‘my husband’. I really wanted to share my feelings for Tom with the people I love.”

Bertinelli was married to late rock icon Eddie Van Halen from 1981 to 2007, and they have one son, musician Wolfgang Van Halen, 31.

As most people who follow me know, #VanHalen is and has been my favorite band for over 40 years. When the Grammys dropped the ball last year, we all picked it up and ran.

“The decision has nothing to do with my love for Ed. I wish Tom the best and know he feels the same for me.”

Bertinelli recounted her divorce from Vitale as long and complex in her book.

“We have drifted away from the interests that made us a couple and found that those differences cannot be resolved. He is a good man who is going through many of the same issues that I have faced: what can he do to add meaning and What is the purpose of his life? Where can he find joy? What excites him? What has he learned? And what does he done differently in the future?

Valerie Bertinelli began writing the book just weeks after Eddie Van Halen died on October 6, 2020, after a long battle with cancer.

Employees at the Chicago sites of Intelligentsia Coffee took the first step towards unionization, adding to a wave of union efforts in the retail coffee industry.

In a press release shared with DCN by IBEW Local 1220the labor group said Intelligentsia’s bargaining unit would include employees from Intelligentsia’s five coffee shops in Chicago, as well as its West Loop roastery and warehouse.

“We are very proud of the workers at Intelligentsia Coffee,” Local 1220 Business Manager John Rizzo said in the press release. “They have taken a bold and necessary step to ensure that every employee receives fair treatment and dignity in their work. Additionally, they indicated the need for both workplace safety and fair wages to earn a modest living without having to work for multiple employers.

Considered an influential force in the coffee industry’s “third wave” and direct business movements, Intelligentsia was founded in Chicago in 1995 before being acquired by JAB-owned Peet’s Coffee in 2015. , Intelligentsia is a subsidiary of JDE Peet’s.

In a statement to DCN, Intelligentsia said, “We have been advised by the NLRB that IBEW Local 1220 has filed a petition for election to represent certain Intelligentsia employees in Chicago for collective bargaining. As this is an active and ongoing matter, Intelligentsia will not comment.

The petition for the union election filed on May 23 with the National Labor Relations Commission (NLRB) is only a first step towards unionization, although it required the signature of at least 30% of the workers in the potential bargaining unit. If the petition is approved, it will be followed by a vote among eligible workers.

If passed, IBEW Local 1220 would represent participating workers in negotiations for new union-approved contracts with Intelligentsia.

The organizing effort does not currently include other Intelligentsia businesses, including company-owned and operated stores in the Los Angeles, Boston, New York and Texas markets.

FIBE Local 1220 also represents Milwaukee’s Illinois-based contingent Collective Coffee employees who voted to unionize last year.
