President Biden is extending his condolences to the family of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny. The president met with Navalny's widow and daughter in San Francisco today, less than a week after Navalny died in a Russian prison. Biden expressed admiration for Navalny's courage and legacy of fighting corruption in the Kremlin.        The judge in former President Trump's civil fraud case is denying a request from Trump's legal team to delay the enforcement of penalties. The defense team had asked for a delay of 30 days to allow for what they called an "orderly post-judgment process." In an email posted to the court docket Thursday, the judge said Trump's team "failed to explain, much less justify, any basis for a stay," adding that he was confident the Appellate Division would protect his rights.        An investigation into Thursday's cell phone outages is looking into whether or not it's part of a cyberattack. AT&T cell phone service is fully restored after being out for most of the day. Reports say the FBI, Department of Homeland Security and other agencies are looking into if the cause is a cyberattack or just technical difficulties.        U.S. Diplomatic officials are being denied access to a woman from Los Angeles who is being accused of high treason in Russia. The 33-year-old former ballerina faces 20 years to life in prison for allegedly raising funds for Ukraine. Even though the U.S. and Russia have a longstanding agreement to notify each other if a citizen is being held, Moscow refused to do that because it does not recognize the woman's dual citizenship.        The first trial in the "Rust" movie shooting is underway in New Mexico. Cinematographer Halyna Hutchins was killed by accidental gunfire on the set of the Alec Baldwin Western film back in October of 2021. Prosecutors claim the weapons handler for the movie, Hannah Gutierrez, is largely responsible for Hutchins' death.        Volkswagen is recalling over 260-thousand vehicles in the U.S. over a fuel tank issue. Officials say the recall stems from a faulty suction jet pump seal, which will need to be replaced. If the seal inside the suction jet pump fails, gas could end up in another section of the engine, potentially causing a fire.
