DeKalb County, Georgia, is facing a lawsuit by an 81-year-old man who was attacked by two dogs. The lawsuit was filed Monday in DeKalb County State Court and alleges that county officials should have prevented the "vicious" attack. The plaintiff alleges that the county should have acted after one of the dogs bit another person in 2013, prior to the plaintiff's attack. In June 2016, the two "dogs knocked [the plaintiff] to the ground and severely mauled him, inflicting life-threatening wounds to his head, face, arms, and body," alleges the lawsuit.

The state of Maryland is joining a lawsuit challenging the Trump administration's decision to separate migrant children and their parents at the southwest border of the United States. Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh stated on Thursday he would join the multistate lawsuit against the Trump administration. "It hurts the most vulnerable people in the world, little children, and the harm is going to be in many cases irreparable," stated Attorney General Frosh. Many of the children, who were at first held in facilities close to where they were picked up, have now been scattered to 17 states by the Department of Health and Human Services.
