“She has been advised by her physicians that she needs to take time to recover and focus on her health,” a statement from Pugh’s office read, adding that, “with the Mayor’s health deteriorating, she feels as though she is unable to fulfill her obligations as Mayor of Baltimore City.”
The announcement came the same day Maryland Republican Gov. Larry Hogan wrote to the Office of the State Prosecutor requesting an investigation into the sales of thousands of Pugh’s book, “Healthy Holly,” to the University of Maryland Medical System while she was a member of its board.
“All Marylanders have an expectation that their public officials as well as individuals involved with institutions that are funded by and closely related to the State, will follow the highest legal and ethical standards,” Gov. Hogan’s letter, obtained and posted by WBAL, says.
CNN has reached out to the governor’s office and the Office of the State Prosecutor.
Pugh was paid $500,000 since 2011 to publish children’s books for Baltimore City schoolchildren, CNN affiliate WBAL reported.
“I sincerely want to say I apologize that I have done something to upset the people, the people of Baltimore that I love and care for,” Pugh said in a news conference last week.
Pugh recently returned $100,000 to the medical system and canceled her book deal. She has also resigned from the hospital’s board, according to WBAL.
City Council President Bernard C. “Jack” Young will take over “ex officio Mayor of Baltimore City” during Pugh’s absence.
Despite Chief Justice John Roberts’ oft-stated goal of keeping the Supreme Court above the kinds of conflicts that have crippled the political branches of government, there are times when internal debates between the justices — and even some sniping — will seep out.
The justices are still bitterly divided over the execution of Domineque Ray, who claimed his religious rights were violated because he could not have an imam with him in the execution chamber, in February — so much so that they continued to litigate the case in an unrelated opinion issued on Monday.
Along with a third death penalty case involving the request for a Buddhist spiritual adviser last week, the issue clearly has the justices riled up. That’s likely to only intensify now that the addition of Justice Brett Kavanaugh has solidified the conservative bent of the court.
“The stakes do not get higher than they do in death penalty cases, and the arguments between the justices and rifts in the court may only get louder and deeper,” said Jessica Levinson, a professor at Loyola Law School.
She said the court is likely to move to the right in the coming years and “these three death penalty cases may demonstrate the court’s growing pains as it moves further away from the ideological center.”
Death penalty experts say that the court’s friction often arises in cases concerning lethal injection protocols and last minute stay requests. “As such, we start seeing these conflicts among the justices play out in unusual places and in unusual ways,” said Fordham law professor Deborah Denno.
Supreme Court rules against death row inmate with rare disease

In early February, the court’s 5-4 conservative majority provided very little reasoning for its decision to allow Ray’s execution to go forward. The Alabama prison allows a Christian chaplain in the room, but officials blocked the imam arguing that only prison employees could be present in the chamber for security concerns.
The 11th US Circuit Court of Appeals had granted a stay of execution, but the high court lifted that stay and cleared the way for the execution, saying that Ray had waited too long — he made the claim fewer than two weeks before his execution.
The order prompted a stinging dissent from the liberal justices, led by Justice Elena Kagan, who argued that Ray had put forward a “powerful claim that his religious rights will be violated at the moment the State puts him to death.”
She accused the conservative majority of short-circuiting the “ordinary” process that should have taken place in the lower courts “just so the state can meet its preferred execution date.”
Neal Katyal, former acting solicitor general for the Obama administration, said that the order would be remembered in the same category as some of the most infamous Supreme Court opinions. “100 years from now, law students will read about this decision. It may be read alongside Dred Scott, Plessy v. Ferguson, Korematsu, and the Chinese Exclusion Act cases,” he tweeted.
The case also jolted religious conservatives who were stunned that the conservative majority had failed to act on the inmate’s request.
Last week, the controversy came up again, when the justices were faced with a similar petition from a Texas inmate, Patrick Henry Murphy, who argued that the state was violating his religious freedom because it refused to allow his Buddhist spiritual adviser into the chamber because the state only allowed Christian and Muslim chaplains who were employees of the prison.
This time, the court stayed the execution with very few clues distinguishing Murphy’s case from that of Ray. Only Justice Brett Kavanaugh wrote separately to suggest that Murphy’s request was granted because he had filed it in a more timely fashion.
Justices Neil Gorsuch and Clarence Thomas noted their dissents, but it was unclear how Roberts or Justice Samuel Alito had voted.
Flash forward to Monday, when the court issued an opinion in a death penalty case brought by an inmate asking for relief for an entirely different set of circumstances out of Missouri. Russell Bucklew argued his planned lethal injection would cause “severe harm and suffering” because of the fact that he suffers from a rare and progressive disease.

Again, the court split 5-4 in the case, with Gorsuch writing the majority opinion and ruling against Bucklew.
In doing so, Gorusch returned to Ray’s execution to make a larger point that “last-minute stays should be the extreme exception.”
He accused the dissenters of attempting to “relitigate” Ray’s case by asserting that Ray’s appeal had been timely.
In a footnote, Gorsuch said that Ray had “long been on notice that there was a question whether his adviser would be allowed into the chamber,” yet he waited “just 15 days before the execution” to ask for clarification.
It appeared that Gorsuch was going out of his way to better explain the reasoning behind the Ray order. That was something that particularly bothered Justice Sonia Sotomayor, who struck back in her own footnote that the prison had “refused to give Ray” a copy of its own practices.
“Even today’s belated explanation from the majority rests on the mistaken premise that Domineque Ray could have figured out sooner that Alabama planned to deny his imam access to the execution chamber,” Sotomayor wrote.
Writing separately, Justice Stephen Breyer also cited Ray’s case and suggested that the majority had acted with unnecessary haste.
It may be that “there is no way to execute a prisoner quickly, while affording him the protections that our Constitution guarantees,” Breyer wrote.

Public sparring over a ruling in a previous case, especially one from just two months ago, is rare, Denno said.
“It was strange to see the justices discussing the merits of an entirely different case that had nothing to do with the case at hand,” she said.
Samantha Josephson, 21, a student at the University of South Carolina, called an Uber around 2 a.m. Friday in Columbia, and was last seen getting in to a black Chevy Impala, said Columbia Police Chief W.H. “Skip” Holbrook. Turkey hunters found her body 14 hours later in the field in Clarendon County, about 90 miles away.
Mother of slain University of South Carolina student says suspected killer created 'a hole in our universe'

The Law Enforcement Division cited an autopsy report from the Clarendon County coroner. Authorities declined to release additional information.
Josephson’s body had numerous wounds, including on her head, neck, face, upper body, leg and foot, according to arrest warrants for suspect Nathaniel David Rowland.
Surveillance video of Josephson outside a bar shows her standing by herself on a curb on the morning she disappeared. She takes several steps toward a black vehicle that pulls up to a parking spot. She appears to reach for the door handle of the vehicle as it slows down and gets inside, the video shows.
Early Saturday, police arrested Rowland, 24, in Columbia after an officer saw him driving the Impala. Police found Josephson’s blood and her cell phone in Rowland’s vehicle after his arrest, police said.

Rowland faces charges of murder and kidnapping in connection with Josephson’s death.
He waived his right to a scheduled court appearance on Sunday. Fielding Pringle, his public defender, declined to comment. Rowland was listed as being held in jail in Columbia. Arrest warrants listed his home as New Zion, an unincorporated community in Clarendon County.
Josephson, who is from Robbinsville, New Jersey, planned to study law in the fall at Drexel University in Philadelphia, her father, Seymour Josephson, said at a candle light vigil Sunday on the South Carolina campus.
Josephson’s funeral will be held at noon Wednesday at Congregation Beth Chaim in Princeton Junction, New Jersey, according to a post on her father’s Facebook page. She will be buried in Perrineville, New Jersey.
The three Connecticut college students were working on a group project Sunday afternoon in a dorm room when one of them took the class assignment too far.
The student, Jake Wascher, now faces two counts of attempted murder and is being held on $1 million bail.
They were acting out “a movie scene in which a person(s) gets stabbed, at which point (Wascher) began to stab both victims before fleeing on foot,” Hartford Police said.
Police did not specify which movie the students were re-enacting, but The Hartford Courant reported it was “The Butterfly Effect,” a 2004 sci-fi thriller starring Ashton Kutcher.
The two victims, who are 19 and 21, were transported to a hospital with multiple stab wounds. The 19-year-old suffered puncture wounds to his chest and back. He underwent surgery and is in critical condition. The 21-year-old victim, who suffered a puncture wound to his chest and four to his back, is in stable condition.
Wascher, 21, was arrested two hours later in the woods near the campus in Connecticut’s capital city, police said.
Hartford Superior Court said Wascher did not have an attorney on file as of Monday.
Police said Wascher is from San Diego and was a commuter student. He did not appear to have any injuries when he was arrested, police said.
The University of Hartford called the stabbings "frightening and unsettling."

“While there is no ongoing threat to campus, we recognize that this isolated incident is frightening and unsettling,” the University of Hartford said Sunday in a statement. “The University will provide counseling services to members of our campus community in need of support or assistance.”
The university declined to provide further comment.
Boeing had said it would submit the fix to the FAA last week, and it had gathered hundreds of industry representatives at its Seattle-area facilities last Wednesday to demonstrate the software changes.
But the FAA said Monday that the company concluded “additional work” is needed.
“The FAA expects to receive Boeing’s final package of its software enhancement over the coming weeks for FAA approval,” the agency said in a statement. “Time is needed for additional work by Boeing as the result of an ongoing review of the 737 MAX Flight Control System to ensure that Boeing has identified and appropriately addressed all pertinent issues.”
Boeing acknowledged the new timeline, saying in a statement that the software change would be “completed in the coming weeks.” It did not say why the timeline had changed.
“Safety is our first priority, and we will take a thorough and methodical approach to the development and testing of the update to ensure we take the time to get it right,” the company said.
American Airlines said Monday afternoon that it was aware the MAX “may be further delayed” in returning to service. It has been forced to cancel dozens of flights daily while the planes await a fix.
American operates 24 MAX 8 airplanes and Southwest operates 34. United Airlines operates 14 of the larger 737 MAX 9 jets.
Capt. Dennis Tajer of the Allied Pilots Association, which represents American Airlines pilots, said the group was encouraged by Boeing’s recent “sense of energy” to produce a fix but also realized the timeline was ambitious.
“We were disregarding that because having the pilots fully engaged, as they are, and all the information, and knowing what the training will be all put this out as more of a distant timeline for getting the aircraft flying,” Tajer told CNN.
The FAA followed other countries’ aviation authorities in grounding the MAX on March 13 following the second crash in less than five months. The agency said it had reviewed satellite data and physical evidence that showed similarities between the Lion Air flight that crashed in October and the Ethiopian Airlines flight that crashed days earlier in March.
A preliminary report on the Ethiopian accident is expected in the coming days.
Software designers, Boeing engineers and test pilots had worked out a set of changes to a stabilization system known as MCAS that has been under scrutiny from investigators piecing together the Lion Air crash, according to a company official. The fix brings in multiple layers of protection and is accompanied by a training regimen.
Tajer, of the Allied Pilots Association, said the software changes Boeing demonstrated last week “directly addressed the concerns that we voiced to Boeing” following the October crash.
The FAA statement said the software changes would require a “rigorous safety review.”
“The FAA will not approve the software for installation until the FAA is satisfied with the submission,” the agency said.
On Saturday about 1:15 a.m., Massachusetts State Police responded to a report that a woman was sexually assaulted by her Uber driver. Daudah Mayanja, a 37-year-old Ugandan citizen, was arrested on two counts of rape. The victim was taken to a hospital for treatment.
Mayanja’s attorney did not respond to requests for comment, but Mayanja told CNN affiliate WCVB he was innocent.
When reached for comment, Uber said that as soon as the company was notified of the incident, they removed the driver’s access to the app.
“What’s been reported is horrible and something no one should ever go through,” said an Uber spokesperson. “We stand ready to support law enforcement with their investigation.”
Mayanja maintained his innocence in a telephone interview with WCVB.
“That information that aired outside is wrong and false,” Mayanja told WCVB. “She jumped from the back seat to the driver’s seat. When I pulled over, she jumped out from the car, (and) I left the scene. I called my bosses because, after, I noticed that she left her bag inside my car. I called the Uber offices to tell them about the situation.”
Mayanja said he received a phone call from police shortly afterward.
“She reported to the police that somebody, the driver, tried to rape her,” he said.
Mayanja told WCVB that he drove himself to the state police barracks, gave his statement and was arrested.
On Sunday, ICE placed a detainer on Mayanja and increased his bail from $25,000 to $100,000, according to the Massachusetts State Police. ICE says a detainer is “placed on aliens arrested on criminal charges for whom ICE possesses probable cause to believe that they are removable from the United States.”
Mayanja’s is required to surrender his passport. If he makes bail, he is required to wear a GPS monitoring bracelet.
The mayor of South Bend, Indiana, ended up officiating a couple’s wedding Monday morning — and hours later, the couple’s child was born.
The Democratic presidential hopeful posted on Facebook that the couple was on their way to the hospital for their 9 a.m. C-section appointment, and wanted to be married before their baby was delivered.
The couple, who Buttigieg referred to as Mary and Gabe without using their surnames, came to Buttigieg’s office shortly before their appointment. Buttigieg said they had all the necessary paperwork and asked him if he would “do the honors,” he wrote.
“I corralled a few staff members as they were trickling into the office, to serve as witnesses, and filled out the paperwork,” Buttigieg wrote. “Their rings weren’t ready, so one of my colleagues found a ribbon that would do the trick.”
He wrote the couple “newly married, left my office with just enough time to get to the hospital. And a few moments ago, they sent Mark in my office this photo of Gabe with young Jade Katherine Jones, South Bend’s newest resident.”
“It’s moments like this that I’ll miss when my term as mayor comes to an end,” Buttigieg wrote, and congratulated the newlyweds and new parents.
Buttigieg, who is 37, has formed a presidential exploratory committee, and if elected would be the youngest president in US history, and the first married gay president. On Monday, Buttigieg announced he raised more than $7 million during the first quarter of this year.
A law firm, Parker Poe Adams & Bernstein, will lead a review of the program’s culture and the experience of the student athletes, according to a statement from the UNC Athletics Department. While it’s not known how long the review will take, the department said it would be “thorough and prompt.”
“The University of North Carolina is committed to the well-being of our student-athletes and to ensuring that they have the best experience possible in and outside of competition,” according to its statement.
Sylvia Hatchell, the head coach of the women’s basketball team, has coached at UNC for 33 seasons. She was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013.
Hatchell, in a statement via her attorney, said she would “cooperate fully in this review.”
“I’ve had the privilege of coaching more than 200 young women during my 44 years in basketball. My goal has always been to help them become the very best people they can be, on the basketball court and in life,” she said in the statement.
“I love each and every one of the players I’ve coached and would do anything to encourage and support them. They are like family to me. I love them all.”
