Troy Currence, 48, a medicine man from the Herring Pond Wampanaoag Tribe, stands for a portrait outside his home in Bourne, Mass., Monday, Sept. 21, 2020. Currence says he's hopeful that the attention on the problem of systemic racism this year will help their voices and stories be heard in a way they haven't been before. "It's opening up everyone else's eyes to how unbalanced the world is and unequal," he said. The world is spinning out of control. So I think more people are going to be aware and more sensitive and open to receiving a message like that." (AP Photo/David Goldman)

A California appeals court has upheld an order requiring Uber and Lyft to treat their California drivers as employees instead of independent contractors, less than two weeks before voters will be asked to exempt the ride-hailing giants from the state's gig economy law. The decision on Thursday, Oct. 22, 2020, won't have any immediate impact because it doesn't take effect for at least 30 days, well after the Nov. 3 vote on Proposition 22.

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron addresses the media following the return of a grand jury investigation into the death of Breonna Taylor, in Frankfort, Ky., Wednesday, Sept. 23, 2020. A judge has cleared the way for grand jurors to speak about the proceedings in the case against the police officers who shot Breonna Taylor. An anonymous grand juror who sat on the panel last month had sued to speak publicly. None of the officers were charged directly in Taylor’s death, but one officer was charged with endangering Taylor’s neighbors. Cameron, whose office led the investigation, had opposed letting grand jurors speak about the proceedings. He has said he did not introduce any homicide charges against the two officers who shot Taylor, because they were justified in returning fire after Taylor's boyfriend shot at them.
