But the court did not specify to lower courts exactly what the standard of proof should be. Elonis was prosecuted under a law banning illegal threats after he posted Facebook rants in…

Job applicant Samantha Elauf did not tell her interviewer in Oklahoma she was Muslim. But Justice Antonin Scalia said for the court that Abercrombie “at least suspected” that Elauf wore a head scarf for religious…

Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Moscow, which drew up the list in response to a similar ban on Russian officials by the EU, had handed over the list to the EU “confidentially.” The EU says the travel bans are unjustified and a list seen by Reuters at the weekend showed 89 European politicians and military leaders were included on it. “The reverse sanctions that were introduced applied to officials who have been most…
