A disability rights group has filed a lawsuit against the City of San Diego and three companies, including private e-scooter companies Bird and Lime, for allegedly breaching the Americans with Disabilities Act and other related state legislation. The class-action lawsuit, Montoya et al v. City of San Diego et al, argues that the city has failed to uphold its duty of keeping city sidewalks, ramps, crosswalks, and other public areas clear of dispersed scooters, which can create hazardous situations for people with physical disabilities.
Judge John D. Bates of the Federal District Court for the District of Columbia upheld his previous order to bring back the Obama-era program, stating that the Trump administration had not justified its elimination.
When Laura Murray was 10 years old, she received a small glass vial containing light-gray dust from an old friend of her father’s: Neil Armstrong. The vial was paired with a note that said “To Laura Ann Murray — Best of Luck — Neil Armstrong Apollo 11.” Laura, who’s now Laura Cicco, found the vial years later in her parents' home after they had passed away. The note has since been authenticated by a handwriting expert to belong to Neil Armstrong. Cicco filed the lawsuit against NASA to get ahead of any potential legal issues since the space agency has a history of confiscating suspected lunar material from citizens.
