For many of the 1.2 million Brits living in the EU, as well as the 3 million EU citizens in the UK, a no-deal Brexit threatens a spate of life-changing repercussions. And the process is taking a toll on people's mental health. “The whole Brexit process has been incredibly abusive and traumatic,” Denise Abel, formerly a psychotherapist for 30 years in the east of London, told The Local from her home in central Italy. “Keeping people in limbo for over 900 days is abuse,” she added, referring to the time that has passed since the shock referendum result.

Christine Ferretti The Detroit News Published 5:39 p.m. UTC Aug 23, 2018 Detroit — Mayor Mike Duggan and a group of Metro Detroit residents have filed a federal lawsuit over Michigan's no-fault auto insurance law, asking the court to give the state six months to come up with a fix for the act they contend is "unconstitutional." The lawsuit, filed Thursday on behalf of Duggan and eight residents in Metro Detroit who have faced financial hardships over auto insurance premiums, alleges that the state's mandatory no-fault auto insurance system “violates the constitutional rights of Michigan’s citizens." “The No-Fault Act has failed Michigan residents at every turn,” the suit contends, noting the plaintiffs are seeking a declaration that the law is unconstitutional. “The State should be given 6 months to repair the automobile insurance scheme. If that deadline is not met, the No-Fault Act should be deemed null and void … [Read more...] about Duggan, Metro drivers sue over no-fault insurance law
