The Westchester County Jail has successfully implemented all parts of an agreement to correct constitutional violations after a 13-year investigation. Pace Law Professor David Dorfman says the Department of Justice’s case centered on people’s constitutional rights even while locked up.

News12 featured student organizers of the campus vigil for DJ Henry and how the Pace community is planning its first Social Justice Week in "Pace University students pause to remember school athlete shot by Pleasantville officer 10 years ago"

Now Pace students who were in elementary and middle school at the time of Henry's death are honoring his memory. "When we think about DJ Henry and we think about what he means to me personally, I think about how I can be a better person, how I can do more on campus. How I can change more," says student Stephanie Nazario. And while the tensions between police and people of color have continued over the last decade, some students say they have hope for the future. "I'm super proud of our generation and I just hope that we continue that as we get older. I hope this isn't just a trend," says Annabel Keppel-Palmer. The students continue to tell Henry's story and plan to continue their work with an annual "Social Justice Week," which will start on Oct. 26.

News12 featured Haub law professor Bennett Gershman in "Pace law professor: Barrett would vote to overturn Roe v. Wade, ‘Obamacare’"

Few who News 12 spoke to Saturday were surprised by President Donald Trump's nomination of Judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.

Her views in many ways are seen as the opposite of liberal icon Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, who died on Sept. 18.

Pace University law professor Bennett Gershman predicts the overturning of many historic Supreme Court decisions if the conservative is confirmed to fill the seat.

"She would vote to overturn Roe v Wade. She would vote against gay marriage. She would vote against the Affordable Care Act. Everything that Ruth Bader Ginsburg stood for, she would be against," he says.

Barrett's nomination is expected to kick off a furious scramble to confirm her in the Senate before Election Day on Nov. 3.

News12 featured Seidenberg Professor Isaac Vaghefi in "What does banning Tik Tok mean?"

News12 featured Seidenberg Professor Isaac Vaghefi in "What does banning Tik Tok mean?"

 What does President Trump's controversial decision to ban downloads of TikTok mean?

Pace University professor Isaac Vaghefi says on the one hand, it's priceless, free advertising for TikTok that will likely make it even more popular.

On the other hand, this type of intrusion into the marketplace could hurt the U.S. economy down the road with startups more wary of coming to America. "If I'm a decisionmaker in a company not based in the U.S., and I see this decision, I certainly am gonna have to re-think my decision," says Vaghefi.

There's a lot of concern about protecting your personal information with TikTok because of its links to the Chinese government. However, Vaghefi does point out he doesn't believe TikTok poses any more of a threat than any other social media site.
