Serial Subject Adnan Syed Deserving Of New Trial, Says Appeals Court

On Thursday, an appeals court ruled that Serial subject Adnan Syed is deserving of a new trial for the murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee. In a 2-1 vote, the Maryland Court of Special Appeals found that the Baltimore man's "Sixth Amendment right to effective assistance of counsel was violated by trial counsel's failure to [...] On Thursday, an appeals court ruled that Serial subject Adnan Syed is deserving of a new trial for the murder of his ex-girlfriend Hae Min Lee. In a 2-1 vote, the Maryland Court of Special Appeals found that the Baltimore man's "Sixth Amendment right to effective assistance of counsel was violated by trial counsel's failure to investigate McClain as a potential alibi witness." Related: The Second Season Of Serial Is Here! Classmate Asia McClain allegedly saw Syed in their high school library during the time prosecutors said Lee was murdered. The podcast star's lawyer said defense attorney Cristina Gutierrez -- who passed away in 2004 -- had fallen "below the standard of reasonable judgment" by not investigating McClain in the original trial. The two Special Appeals judges wrote: "Trial counsel's deficient performance prejudiced Syed's defense... because, but for trial counsel's failure to investigate [McClain], there is a reasonably probability that McClain's alibi testimony would have raised a reasonable doubt in the mind of at least one juror about Syed's involvement [in] Hae's murder, and thus 'the result of the proceedings would have been different.'" This decision affirms a June 2016 lower court ruling where Judge Martin P. Welch granted Syed a new trial and vacated his conviction. According to the Baltimore Sun, the office of the Maryland Attorney General is "currently reviewing today's decision to determine next steps." Lee -- a student at Woodlawn High School -- went missing in January 1999. A month later, her body was found in a Baltimore-area park. Syed has spent the past 18 years in prison.

Over the weekend, a video began circulating around the Internet of Cardi B getting into a fiery shouting match with a female fan in front of a rowdy audience. Related: Pregnant Cardi B Almost Flies Off Golf Cart! At one point, someone from the crowd yells, "Come outside, you bitch!" at the pregnant rapper. According to The Blast on Monday, the woman in question -- Lolita Beckford-Dawkins -- says the scuffle happened on April 27 outside of the Fendi store at City Center. Reportedly, Beckford-Dawkins and her friends bumped into the Bodak Yellow artist and asked for a pic. Cardi reportedly ignored the girls, until Lolita screamed "Fuck Cardi, you ain't shit!" Apparently, the musician tried to explain that she didn't want to take a snap because she didn't like the way she looked. Unfortunately, things escalated, and Beckford-Dawkins' husband was forced to separate his wife and her friends from reaching Cardi. Despite the heated exchange of words, Lolita says she is a "mother of 5" who would never physically attack a pregnant woman. This isn't the first time Offset's fiancΓ©e has gotten into a tussle with her admirers. After the Met Gala, Cardi B's security allegedly beat the crap out of a fan who asked for an autograph.

Janice Dickinson Scores A Legal Win Against Bill Cosby!

In a major legal ruling that sets some new precedents, an appeals court has overturned the trial judge's ruling against the former America's Next Top Model judge. Basically, when Janice gave her interview three years ago claiming Cosby raped her, he sent (through his lawyer Marty Singer) a denial to various outlets, threatening to sue if they published the story. In response Janice filed her own defamation suit against Cosby for calling her a liar. Related: Janice Says Kim Kardashian Makes Her Want To Vomit & Kendall Jenner Isn't Good In Bed Cosby and Singer's defense? You can't sue for defamation over a legal order due to "litigation privilege." Well, the appeals court said that's BS -- because lots of outlets ran the story, and Cosby never sued any of them! Since these were "hollow threats" they don't get the privilege protection. The other big defense Cosby and Singer (who is also now being named as a defendant in the suit) used was saying the demand letter was just stating an "opinion." The appeals court says whether or not she's lying about Cosby raping her is most certainly NOT a matter of opinion but a provable fact! If Cosby wants to win against Dickinson, he may actually have to prove in court she's lying about the rape! We will be waiting with the popcorn for that day. Keep fighting, Janice!

Specifically, the former Bravolebrity took to Instagram to share a snap of her family and pets posing in front of a private aircraft amid statewide evacuations. Related: RHOBH's Dorit Kemsley Says Husband Will Take A "Back Seat" Unsurprisingly, many IG users dragged Miz Hochstein for bragging about her good fortune. Even Lisa's RHOM costar Joanna Krupa weighed in on the controversy as she noted on Twitter: All those A holes posting and showing off w their private jets in Miami , why don't u offer help families and animals that can't get out ? β€” Joanna Krupa (@joannakrupa) September 7, 2017 Otherwise stop posting and showing off when people and animals are being left behind during this catastrophic hurricane.

Nonetheless, Lisa has since defended her decision as she's updated her pic's caption with the following: UPDATE: to all of these ignorant people leaving nasty comments... although it's none of your damn business we were not the only ones in this plane. Every seat was occupied and my son had to sit in my lap. EVERYONE IS POSTING ON SM about how they escaped! This happens to be mine and I don't need to apologize or hide to ANYONE ABOUT HOW WE DO SO. We also did not have paper work for our dogs to fly commercial as every vet was closed and every flight was booked and there is no way in hell we would leave them behind. Fortunately we were able to get a plane to take them with us.

And to the other commenters about me "abandoning" my friends in my house πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„πŸ™„ they weren't any guests that happened to just be there already, they are friends who just didn't have a proper safe place to stay who live in Miami and I figured mine would be safer for them so I offered for them to come on over!

I'm praying for everyone who already has been devastated by this hurricane and pray that Somehow by a miracle Florida is not hit so hard. We did not want to risk it with our little angel Logan. And YES we let some friends stay at our home because it's a little safer then theirs! They will be fine!!!

David Allen Turpin and Louise Anna Turpin are being held on $9 million bail each after their 13 children were discovered being held captive and malnourished at their home in Perris, California. The investigation began when a 17-year-old girl contacted police telling them she had escaped from her parents' home -- where her 12 siblings were still trapped. Just as the young girl claimed, investigators who entered the Turpin home found "several children shackled to their beds with chains and padlocks in dark and foul-smelling surroundings." The youngest was two.

This may have been a way to avoid questions about why the children didn't attend school. The couple are now facing nine felony counts of torture and ten felony counts of child endangerment each.
