National

1.) It’s not exactly the day after tomorrow, but a landmark report Monday from the United Nations puts a tighter-than-expected deadline for countries to meet the goals of the Paris climate agreement.

2.) The national monument that former President Barack Obama established in the Atlantic Ocean survived a court challenge Friday, with a federal judge finding that the majesty of even underwater lands is worthy of protection.

3.) A federal judge on Friday permanently barred the Trump administration from withholding policing grants from California, San Francisco and other so-called sanctuary jurisdictions across the nation.

4.) A federal judge on Friday agreed to a request to quash subpoenas served on American University on behalf of accused Russian operative Maria Butina, finding Butina’s attorneys hadn’t followed proper procedure for the demand.

Regional

5.) California’s gubernatorial candidates agree on one thing: California has become a downright unaffordable place to live. But that was about the only common ground Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom and his Republican opponent John Cox found during a live public radio debate hosted by KQED on Monday.

6.) A furry relative to minks and otters and native to the West Coast may get federal protection as threatened under the Endangered Species Act due to lost habitat, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said Friday.

7.) On the last day of his misdemeanor sentence at the Van Cise-Simonet Detention Center in downtown Denver, 26-year-old Brian M. registered to vote.

8.) Nearly 50 members of three Native American tribes in North Dakota claim in a class action that Andeavor Logistics is unfairly profiting from a crude oil pipeline operating through tribal trust lands that it refuses to remove

9.) The makers of Titleist golf balls, a brand name in place for 85 years, brought a federal complaint Friday against the makers of a parody brand that holds itself out as the “sluttiest ball in golf.”
