Alec Baldwin’s attorneys ask judge for dismissal over undisclosed evidence in ‘Rust’ trial | LIVE

Alec Baldwin’s defense attorneys have asked Judge Mary Sommer for a dismissal of the case on the grounds that prosecutor Kari Morrissey did not disclose evidence found after amorist Hannah Gutierrez-Reed’s trial last month. This is a breaking news update. Check back for updates. The lead detective in the shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the film “Rust” is likely to be on the stand for most of Friday at Alec Baldwin’s involuntary manslaughter trial in New Mexico, as prosecutors try to cast the movie star as a reckless cavalier with a gun in his hand and the defense seeks to portray him as a working actor just doing his job. Cpl. Alexandria Hancock of the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office didn’t become the chief investigator until two weeks after the October 2021 shooting, but she conducted the first interviews of Baldwin, “Rust” armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed and assistant director David Halls, the three people criminally charged in the case. Hancock was on the stand briefly at the end of the day Thursday and will continue her direct examination by the prosecution Friday

Cavers exploring in western Virginia rescue ‘miracle’ dog found 40 to 50 feet down in cave

NARROWS, Va. — One very lucky dog is recovering at a shelter after a group of cavers said their excursion into a western Virginia cave over the weekend turned into a rescue mission when they found her 40 to 50 feet underground. Dave Jackson and Jesse Rochette of Colorado-based educational cave simulator company CaveSim on Sunday headed to Narrows in Giles County to explore Giant Caverns with a local couple, Jackson said by telephone on Wednesday. The first member of their party started down into the funnel-shaped cave and spotted something unusual – a dog. “He said, ‘Whoa! There’s a dog down here!'” Rochette said. “And I asked if it was alive and he said ‘Yes!'” A self-described “dog-guy,” Rochette repelled down next with a piece of salami. “She instantly came over and sucked up the salami and she loved that,” Rochette said. The dog was shivering, so they wrapped her up in space blankets, foam pads and whatever else they could find, including the hood from an old jacket they found in the cave, he said. Next they got her to drink water by

Analysis: At high-stakes news conference, Biden calls Harris ‘Vice President Trump’

John T. Bennett | CQ-Roll Call (TNS) WASHINGTON — President Joe Biden on Thursday stumbled during a key test that could help decide his political future, uttering more embarrassing verbal gaffes under the brightest of lights. In an unscripted news conference that ran for more than an hour after a three-day conference with leaders of NATO countries, Biden likely prevented an avalanche of fellow Democrats from calling for him to exit the race against Donald Trump — though one prominent House member did just that moments after he left the stage. But his latest verbal stumbles surely did little during the high-stakes news conference to eliminate further questions about the 81-year-old’s ability to run, win and serve another four years, questions that exploded after Biden at times could not finish sentences during a June 27 debate. Before Biden — who long has hailed himself a fighter — had a chance to joust with reporters, he committed his second major gaffe of the evening, referring to Vice President Kamala Harris as “Vice President Trump.” The slipup came during his answer to the twice-delayed evening session’s first question. He

A’s pending relocation has echoes of 1954 exit from Philadelphia

As the Athletics’ days in Oakland dwindle, the team will return to the city where it first started — and from where it first picked up and left. Before the Swingin’ A’s and the Bash Brothers and Moneyball, there was Connie Mack, Shibe Park and two dynasties that brought five World Series championships to Philadelphia. And before John Fisher announced the Athletics would move from the Oakland Coliseum to a minor-league stadium starting next season, Mack’s once-great franchise was forced to leave his once-great ballpark in 1954. Now, the Oakland A’s will visit their former home one final time before a multi-year stay in Sacramento with a proposed final landing spot in Las Vegas. They’ll take on the Phillies for a three-game set at Citizens Bank Park starting on Friday in the town where it all began. With the A’s heading to Philadelphia, it’s a reminder of the franchise’s nomadic history and the circumstances that have surrounded the team for decades. The Philadelphia Athletics began as an American League charter club in 1901 and were managed by Connie Mack, who led the A’s on the

Carlos Correa to visit Oracle Park for first time since SF Giants’ free-agent debacle

The Giants have welcomed several players to Oracle Park this season who they missed on in free agency. Shohei Ohtani. Aaron Judge. Bryce Harper. But Carlos Correa differs from them all in one key department. He agreed to play in San Francisco. Correa will make his first appearance at Oracle Park since his infamous free-agent saga, one in which he agreed to record-breaking contracts with the Giants and Mets that both fell through and ended with the shortstop re-signing with the Twins. “I’m the type of guy that turns the page really easily,” Correa told reporters in Minneapolis last year. “It was definitely different. It was very unexpected. But at the same time, it had to happen that way and I’m very happy that I’m here now, today.” December of 2022 will go down as one of the most infamous offseason months in Giants franchise history. After missing out on signing Judge, the Giants pivoted to Correa, agreeing with the All-Star on a 13-year, $350 million contract. It wasn’t just the largest deal in franchise history, but it was the first time San Francisco signed

‘The Bear’ drives even more to Pequod’s Pizza in Chicago: ‘Business was just crazy’

‘The Bear’ drives even more to Pequod’s Pizza in Chicago: ‘Business was just crazy’ CHICAGO — Pequod’s Pizza in Chicago’s Lincoln Park neighborhood was already a popular place, where locals have enjoyed their unique deep dish for decades. Then, they were highlighted on season two of FX’s “The Bear,” an acclaimed drama about opening and running a restaurant in the Windy City. “Business was just crazy, like droves and droves of people,” said Sean Asbra, Pequod’s general manager. “It took about two weeks before people started mentioning, ‘we came here because of ‘The Bear.'” In the fan-favorite “Forks” episode, a tasting menu chef fancily re-plates a Pequod’s pizza for diners who want to try deep dish. The show, which airs on Hulu, brought in an army of crew members to shoot a short scene where the pizza is picked up at the restaurant. “A few customers that I have now are actors on ‘The Bear,'” Asbra said. “They liked it; so, that says a lot.” Pequod’s pies are widely regarded as one of Chicago’s best versions of deep dish, routinely being featured in news articles

Lead detective in Alec Baldwin case to testify, convicted armorer may be called in ‘Rust’ trial

The lead detective in the shooting of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins on the set of the film “Rust” is likely to be on the stand for most of Friday at Alec Baldwin’s involuntary manslaughter trial in New Mexico, as prosecutors try to cast the movie star as a reckless cavalier with a gun in his hand and the defense seeks to portray him as a working actor just doing his job. Cpl. Alexandria Hancock of the Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office didn’t become the chief investigator until two weeks after the October 2021 shooting, but she conducted the first interviews of Baldwin, “Rust” armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed and assistant director David Halls, the three people criminally charged in the case. Hancock was on the stand briefly at the end of the day Thursday and will continue her direct examination by the prosecution Friday before undergoing what’s likely to be a long cross-examination by the defense as they look to poke holes in an investigation they have suggested unfairly focused on Baldwin. Before Hancock took the stand, Italian gunmaker Alessandro Pietta testified Thursday about quality control in the

‘Nearly all’ AT&T cell customers’ call and text records exposed in massive breach

By Matt Egan and Sean Lyngaas, CNN Friday, July 12, 2024 11:46AM AT&T said the compromised data includes the telephone numbers of nearly all of its cellular customers on its network. The call and text message records of tens of millions of AT&T cellphone customers in mid-to-late 2022 were exposed in a massive data breach, the telecom company revealed Friday. AT&T blamed an “illegal download” on a third-party cloud platform that it learned about in April – just as the company was grappling with an unrelated major data leak. AT&T said the compromised data includes the telephone numbers of “nearly all” of its cellular customers and the customers of mobile virtual network operators on its network between May 1, 2022 and October 31, 2022. The records of a “very small number” of customers on January 2, 2023 were also implicated, AT&T said. AT&T listed approximately 110 million wireless subscribers as of the end of 2022. The breach also included AT&T landline customers who interacted with those cell numbers. AT&T said customer names were not exposed in this incident, however the company acknowledged that publicly-available tools

Key moments from President Joe Biden’s critical press conference

President Joe Biden, under the microscope as Democrats debate his political future, tried to make the case that he is best suited to take on Donald Trump this November and finish what he’s started in a second term. In a nearly hourlong solo press conference, Biden faced a room full of reporters for the first time since his poor debate performance two weeks ago sent his party into a panic about his mental fitness and ability to carry out his campaign. Almost all questions posed to the president focused on those issues, with Biden on defense on everything from his cognitive health to whether he believes his vice president could take on the role. The president remained adamant that he believes he is the most qualified person to go up against Trump. President Biden answered questions from reporters as he faced growing calls from within his own party to step aside from his re-election bid. “I beat him once, and I will beat him again,” Biden said. Here are several key takeaways Biden’s press conference. The gaffes continue Answering the first question of the night
