By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday gave the green light to two class-action lawsuits filed by residents of Flint, Michigan who are pursing civil rights claims against local and state officials over lead contamination in the city's water supply.

One such system is Ford's Dual Band Radar, McCormack said, where there is still ongoing work that must be completed. The United States Navy will commission the first of a new generation of aircraft carriers into service today.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday took up a new dispute over the detention of immigrants in a case involving whether people who were convicted of criminal offenses and were subject to deportation can go free in certain instances after serving their prison terms. The justices will hear an appeal by President Donald Trump's administration of a lower court ruling blocking the government from detaining immigrants convicted of crimes any time after they leave prison, sometimes years later. The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals ruled in 2016 that the government could detain such immigrants only immediately after they finish their prison term.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday required Arizona to continue to provide driver's licenses to the so-called Dreamers immigrants and refused to hear the state's challenge to an Obama-era program that protects hundreds of thousands of young adults brought into the country illegally as children. The case centered on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program created in 2012 under Democratic former President Barack Obama that Republican President Donald Trump already has sought to rescind. The high court refused to hear Republican-governed Arizona's appeal of a lower court ruling that barred the state from denying driver's licenses to people protected under DACA.

A few weeks ago, one of the members of the Russian government turned to President Putin and asked, "Vladimir Vladimirovich, well, what will happen to me after March 18?" He asked his question in the presence of other ministers, and the upcoming elections were certainly on all their minds. According to my sources, Putin smiled his usual sly smile and replied, "Well, why, even I do not know what will happen to me after March 18." Everyone there understood that the minister had made a terrible mistake. You cannot publicly demonstrate weakness, and you cannot ask Putin about your future.
