Court is back in session trying to make sense of all that went down in the first two weeks of 2021, which smells a bit like 2020 with the added stink of a hot mess insurrection incited by Trump for his people to storm the US Capitol. Our jam packed Docket also includes: Tracy Chapman awarded $450K in copyright suit against Nicki Minaj, Zoë Kravitz filing for divorce after only a year-and-a-half of marriage to Karl Glusman, suspects arrested in burglary of Dr. Dre's home, charges filed against the infamous "Soho Karen" caught on camera accusing iPhone theft by son of jazz trumpeter Keyon Harrold, possible pardons by Trump for Lil Wayne and Kodak Black, updates in the trial of Minneapolis police charged in the killing of George Floyd, and no charges in Wisconsin of the police who shot and paralyzed Jacob Blake.   Follow Eboni K.

New episodes of Holding Court return January 13th, but we need to sidebar for a minute about what happened this week.... It is the day after Black Americans helped the Democrats take back control of the Senate by winning both Senate seats in Georgia including the election of Rev. Raphael Warnock as the first Black Senator elected from that former slaveholder state.  It is the day after the United States Congress, despite a violent insurrection by a mob of Trump loyalists, confirmed the electoral victory of Joe Biden as the next President of the United States, and the historic election of the first Black Woman as Vice President, Kamala Harris. So I wanted to connect with you today dear listeners and rejoice that today is a new day even while the work today and everyday from now on continues to make law & order mean justice for everyone not just the privileged.

New episodes return January 13th, but in the meantime we've got a new mailbag question from a "Daddy" who wants to know if he needs a lawyer for his son. We also revisit a mailbag question about "Separated" vs. married from episode #9. Then we revisit the main segment of episode #5, an important discussion from last year when we flashed back to the first viral video of a brutal police encounter with a Black man when Rodney King was beaten in 1991, and the police who beat him were tried and acquitted in 1992 triggering an uprising. The 2020 viral video of the brutal killing of George Floyd also ignited an uprising, and the reckoning must confront familiar narratives from leaders and media that contribute to the devaluation of Black Lives.
