FIRST ON FOX: Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia recently purchased a luxury waterfront condominium from a senior lawyer at Dominion Energy, a multibillion-dollar energy company developing a massive offshore wind farm in his home state.
According to his 2022 financial disclosures filed this month, Kaine reported purchasing a residential property worth up to $1 million in March 2022. A Fox News Digital review of local real estate filings showed that Kaine and his wife Anne Holton paid $895,000 for a multi-unit condominium in Richmond, Virginia, from Dominion deputy general counsel George Marget on March 8, 2022.
The condominium’s listing touted the residence as one of the most luxurious in the city. The condominium has two master suites, a gourmet kitchen, dining room and comes with three parking spaces.
Kaine’s disclosures further indicated that the senator earned up to $15,000 renting the apartment back to the “previous owner.” However, a spokesperson for Kaine — who defended the purchase, saying it was negotiated by realtors — said the filing should have stated “previous occupant” since it was rented to a tenant who had been living in the condominium at the time of the purchase.

“Senator Kaine and Anne Holton bought their condo from the Margets in a transaction negotiated by realtors,” the spokesperson said in a statement to Fox News Digital. “The Margets did not live in this condo and instead had a long-term tenant who rented the condo from them. This tenant, who was not

Stephen Owens, Gwyneth Paltrow’s lawyer, reconciled with his courtroom actions on the third day of trial in the negligence suit brought upon by Terry Sanderson against the Academy Award winner.
Sanderson, a retired optometrist, originally sued Paltrow for $3.1 million and claimed he was a victim of a hit-and-run on the slopes at the Deer Valley Resort in 2016. A judge dismissed the claim and removed the exclusive resort and a ski instructor from the lawsuit before Sanderson proceeded with the $300,000 suit. Paltrow filed a countersuit seeking $1 and attorney’s fees.
Polly Grasham, Sanderson’s daughter, took the stand Thursday to testify on behalf of her father. After returning from a lunch break and a heated cross-examination earlier in the morning, Owens told Grasham, “I need to apologize, I was being an a– earlier. You love your dad.”
However, by the end of the cross-examination, Owens and Grasham were verbally sparring once again. He asked about Grasham’s sister Jenny describing Sanderson as “anal-retentive,” to which Grasham said, “I’m thinking that word came up with my older sister because I don’t even know what anal-retentive means … if you’re talking type A? I would not call him anal-retentive, no.”
Owens attempted to clarify his words by saying, “it has nothing to do with our butts.” Grasham ended her testimony with, “Ya, let’s move on.”

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The state attorney’s office announced Thursday a new arrest in the shocking murder of Florida father of four Jared Bridegan, who was gunned down in front of his toddler more than a year ago.
Melissa Nelson, the state attorney for Florida’s Fourth Judicial District, and Jacksonville Beach Police Chief Gene Paul Smith said at a press conference that the husband of Bridegan’s ex-wife has been charged in his slaying.
Mario Fernandez, 35, the second husband of Bridegan’s ex-wife, Shanna Gardner-Fernandez, was arrested Thursday morning in Orlando by agents with the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and officers with the Jacksonville Beach Police Department.
Gardner-Fernandez, 35, remains a suspect in the killing, according to law enforcement sources.

A judge signed the arrest warrant for Fernandez moments after Henry Tenon, Fernandez’s former tenant, pleaded guilty to fatally shooting Bridegan as part of a plea agreement, Nelson said.
Tenon, 61, has agreed to “testify truthfully against those he worked with to murder Jared Bridegan,” Nelson told reporters at the press conference held at the state attorney’s office in downtown Jacksonville.

“Tenon’s cooperation has both corroborated evidence collected during the investigation and provided additional evidence against Mario Fernandez Saldana for his role in the planning and execution of Jared’s murder,” she added.
Tenon was charged two months ago with second-degree murder, conspiracy to commit murder, accessory after the fact and child abuse for his role in the slaying.
Alec Baldwin’s lawyer told a judge Thursday the former “30 Rock” star “wants his day in court,” and claimed the gun used in the fatal “Rust” shooting was destroyed by the state.
However, Heather Brewer, spokesperson for the office of the New Mexico First Judicial District Attorney, confirmed with Fox News Digital that the gun has “not been destroyed by the state.”
“The gun Alec Baldwin used in the shooting that killed Halyna Hutchins has not been destroyed by the state. The gun is in evidence and is available for the defense for review,” Brewer said.
“The defense’s unexpected statement in the status hearing today that the gun had been destroyed by the state may be a reference to a statement in the FBI’s July 2022 firearms testing report that said damage was done to internal components of the gun during the FBI’s functionality testing . However, the gun still exists and can be used as evidence.”
Baldwin previously pleaded not guilty to two counts of involuntary manslaughter in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins. He was charged in January, more than a year after the fatal shooting on the “Rust” film set.
Alex Spiro, who represents Baldwin, and Jason Bowles, who represents armorer Hannah Gutierrez-Reed, appeared Thursday before a judge for a status hearing in the case.

A former lawyer in the Trump administration’s Department of Justice was presented with an award Saturday from the Federalist Society for her work and expertise on the “administrative state” and separation of powers, which has been used to fight what Republicans say is the Biden administration’s executive overreach.
Jennifer Mascott, now an associate professor at the Scalia School of Law at George Mason University, won the Joseph Story Award, which recognizes lawyers who have “demonstrated excellence in legal scholarship and who have made a significant public impact in a manner that advances the rule of law in a free society.”
The Federalist Society is a conservative group of attorneys advocating a textualist and originalist interpretation of the US Constitution.
In 2019, Mascott was deputy assistant attorney general in the Office of Legal Counsel within the DOJ under Attorney General Bill Barr. She now co-directs the C. Boyden Gray Center for the Study of the Administrative State at the Scalia Law School with Adam White, a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute.

White says that Mascott has been one of the “very leading scholars for a better understanding of the Constitution’s allocation of executive powers and what that means in practice for agencies and for key personnel within the agencies.” He noted that his work has been cited by judges across the country and in the opinions of the Supreme Court.
“She really has been a leader on the intellectual side,” White said. “She’s poured immense energy into connecting those fundamental ideas with the actual practice of governance.”
The family of a Florida lawyer who suffered a heart attack at a Las Vegas blackjack table last year and died months later has filed a wrongful death lawsuit against a casino.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports David Jagolinzer was staying at the Wynn Las Vegas while in town for a legal conference last spring.
According to the lawsuit, Jagolinzer went into cardiac arrest on April 6 and was slumped over the blackjack table for more than 15 minutes but the dealer continued to deal cards to another player.

The suit filed last week in District Court also alleges that Wynn employees didn’t immediately check on Jagolinzer and they started counting his gaming chips instead.
Jagolinzer, who was part of a Miami law firm, died on Oct. 18 at age 48 from anoxic encephalopathy allegedly related to the April cardiac arrest that could have avoided had he “obtained timely emergency medical treatment,” according to the lawsuit.

An attorney for Elliot Blair’s family claims that his head was likely “hit and dragged” by more than one person before dying while on a vacation in Mexico.
Blair, a public defender in California, was vacationing in Rosita, Mexico last month with his wife Kimberly Williams celebrating their one-year anniversary when he was found dead outside an entrance to a three-story hotel.
Mexican authorities have been inconsistent in their explanations for Blair’s death, but the family believes it was a murder.
Mexican authorities claim that his death “was the result of an unfortunate accident due to the fall of the deceased from a third floor,” stating that Blair was possibly intoxicated and trying to shoo pigeons away.

Blair’s wife, Williams, said that her husband’s death wasn’t an accident during an appearance on Good Morning America.
“I just know it’s not an accident,” Williams said. “I know he didn’t fall. I just know that.”
Case Barnett, an attorney for Blair’s family, told the New York Post that foul play was involved.
“It’s obvious to us and to the experts we have spoken to that this is foul play,” Barnett said. “It’s either he fell to his knees for some reason or he got hit and dragged. One of our experts told us that it’s likely that more than one man did this if you look at the damage to Elliot’s head.”
After a night on the town, Williams was woken up at 1:40 am by
The Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office has dismissed all insurance fraud charges against “Yellowstone” actress Q’orianka Kilcher.
Kilcher, who plays recurring character Angela Blue Thunder on the hit Paramount+ show, said Friday in a statement obtained by Fox News Digital, “I am beyond grateful that my case has been dismissed — tomorrow my journey begins to help raise awareness and demand more transparency for worker’s rights within the workers comp system.”

Her lawyers, Vasquez and Cook, said in their own statement that they brought: “The decision is a true victory, and while we are gratified that Ms. Kilcher’s innocence has been vindicated, the truth is that the California Department of Insurance should never have this case.” , and Ms. Kilcher should never have been subjected to this ordeal.”
The team’s statement concluded: “Having been cleared, Ms. Kilcher is excited to move forward and devotes her attention to her developing career.”
The trouble for Kilcher began in October 2018 when he was injured while filming “Dora and the Lost City of Gold.” The actress hurt her
