The courts are taking another look at whether the President is profiting from his hotels and restaurants. Plaintiffs claim Donald Trump is violating the Constitution's emoluments clause. The latest ruling sends the case back to a lower court. A federal court in DC previously threw out the lawsuit. Trump has argued that there's nothing improper about his properties making money while he is in the White House.        Eleven people are already qualified for next month's fourth Democratic presidential debate. The ten who took part in Thursday night's debate in Houston and billionaire businessman Tom Steyer have already punched their ticket. CNN and the New York Times will co-host the event on October 15th in Columbus, Ohio.        Felicity Huffman is going to jail. The actress will serve 14 days, pay a fine of 30-thousand-dollars, and be required to complete 250 hours of community service for her admitted role in the college admissions cheating scandal. She had previously pleaded guilty on a fraud charge of having her daughter's S-A-T score rigged.        Bob Iger is out at Apple. The tech giant announced Friday the Disney CEO resigned from the board of directors September 10th. The departure coincided with Apple announcing the release date and price for its coming streaming service.        Investigators are recommending criminal charges for a dozen former Catholic priests stemming from accusations of sexual abuse. Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt announced they are targeting the state's four main dioceses. He identified 163 priests and clergy members who have been accused of abuse or misconduct, of which more than half have died.        New England Patriots troubled receiver Antonio Brown has been given the green light for Sunday. The wide out won't be placed on the commissioner's exempt list, making him eligible to play against the Miami Dolphins. The NFL has opened an investigation into the civil lawsuit filed Tuesday in federal court alleging sexual assault against the New England Patriots' wide out by his former trainer.
