And in headlines: a former Memphis police officer charged in Tyre Nichols’ death pleaded guilty to two federal charges, a jury found FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried guilty of fraud and money laundering, and family and friends mourn the passing of progressive attorney and healthcare activist Ady Barkan.
