But since the museum’s 211-foot-tall wing known as the Blavatnik Building opened in 2016, another aspect of the view has become well known to visitors. Stroll around the enclosed walkway and, at one point, you’ll be staring into the private lives of residents of luxury apartments in a neighboring glass-and-steel building that was completed in 2012. The owners of four apartments in the building, part of a development called NEO Bankside, are less enamored of the view, and so they sued in 2017. On Friday, a court began hearing their case against the gallery, in which they claimed a “relentless” invasion of … [Read more...] about You Can See What?

Aaron C. Davis, Emma Brown and Joe Heim, The Washington Post Published 8:45 pm PDT, Tuesday, September 25, 2018 Now Playing: FOX 26 Morning News Extra Media: Fox 26 Houston On Monday night, Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh said in a nationally televised interview that in his younger years, he was focused on sports, academics and "service projects." But it was his comments about drinking that rankled some Yale University classmates, prompting them to speak out for the first time. Liz Swisher, who described herself as a friend of Kavanaugh in college, said she was shocked that - in an interview focused largely on his high school years and allegations of sexual misconduct - he strongly denied drinking to the point of blacking out. "Brett was a sloppy drunk, and I know because I drank with him. I watched him drink more than a lot of people. He'd end up slurring his words, stumbling," said Swisher, a Democrat and chief of the gynecologic oncology division at … [Read more...] about Kavanaugh’s ‘choir boy’ image on Fox interview rankles former Yale classmates

By Emma Brown, Washington Post | PUBLISHED: September 16, 2018 at 11:17 am | UPDATED: September 16, 2018 at 11:29 am Earlier this summer, Christine Blasey Ford wrote a confidential letter to a senior Democratic lawmaker alleging that Supreme Court nominee Brett M. Kavanaugh sexually assaulted her more than three decades ago, when they were high school students in suburban Maryland. Since Wednesday, she has watched as that bare-bones version of her story became public without her name or her consent, drawing a blanket denial from Kavanaugh and roiling a nomination that just days ago seemed all but certain to succeed. Now, Ford has decided that if her story is going to be told, she wants to be the one to tell it. Speaking publicly for the first time, Ford said that one summer in the early 1980s, Kavanaugh and a friend — both “stumbling drunk,” Ford alleges — corralled her into a bedroom during a gathering of teenagers at a house in Montgomery County. While his … [Read more...] about Brett Kavanaugh accuser, a Bay Area professor, speaks out about her sexual-assault allegation
