Lambda Legal has filed a brief on behalf of a transgender man from Grovetown, Georgia, who was denied permission by a judge to legally change his name to better reflect his gender identity. Judge J. David Roper allowed Feldhaus to take the first name Rowan as he considered it relatively gender-neutral, but denied Feldhaus' choice of middle name, saying: 'I am not going to change your name to Rowan Elijah. You've got to come up with something else ... maybe Shawn or some other name that is commonly given male or female."

"Could they have been charged? Sure they could've," said Sgt. Ashley Henson. "But if you looked at all the circumstances they're a good family, taking care of their kids, there weren't any drugs or anything like that involved."
The latest news on the Hillary Clinton email controversy reinforces everything we've heard so far on this subject:
Prosecutors and FBI agents investigating Hillary Clinton's use of a personal email server have so far found scant evidence that the leading Democratic presidential candidate intended to break classification rules, though they are still probing the case aggressively with an eye on interviewing Clinton herself, according to U.S. officials familiar with the matter.
FBI agents on the case have been joined by federal prosecutors from the same office that successfully prosecuted 9/11 conspirator Zacarias Moussaoui -- and who would handle any Edward Snowden case, should he ever return to the country, according to the U.S. officials familiar with the matter. And in recent weeks, prosecutors from the U.S. Attorney's Office in the Eastern District of Virginia and their FBI counterparts have been interviewing top Clinton aides as they seek to bring the case to a close.
