A federal judge in Minnesota issued a temporary restraining order that prohibits law enforcement officers from arresting or using physical force against journalists covering the Daunte Wright protests. U.S. District Judge Wilhelmina Wright issued the order on Friday and it will remain in effect for the next two weeks, according to the Twin Cities Pioneer Press. The ruling prevents police from using physical force or chemical agents against the media. Law enforcement also cannot take away reporters’ press passes, the order says. The ruling is the result of a restraining order filed by an international labor union for news media workers and a freelance journalist against Minnesota Department of Public Safety commissioner John Harrington and Minnesota State Patrol Col. Matthew Langer. Journalists claimed in court that they were “directed by law enforcement to vacate the protest area, physically grabbed, struck by less-lethal projectiles and rubber bullets, and pepper sprayed.” While journalists were not subject to curfews, they had been required to vacate areas where dispersal orders were given. The new ruling exempts journalists from such orders. Though the state attorney general’s office argued that dispersal orders protect journalists from harm, the judge dismissed that argument. “This argument is unavailing, particularly when considering the allegations, supported by declarations, that members of the press have sustained severe injuries at the hands of law enforcement in recent days,” Wright said. “These severe injuries include bruising and at least one injury requiring surgery.” On Friday, local media reports detailed accounts of multiple journalists being stopped, detained and sometimes pepper-sprayed by law enforcement while covering the demonstrations sparked by the police shooting of Wright, a black man. An officer fatally shot the 20-year-old on Sunday during a traffic stop. The officer, who officials say intended to deploy a Taser when she shot Wright, has resigned and has been charged with second-degree manslaughter.

The U.S. Supreme Court will hear oral arguments in a case that will determine who is eligible to receive more than $530 million in federal virus relief funding set aside for tribes more than a year ago. More than a dozen Native American tribes sued the U.S. Treasury Department to keep the money out of the hands of Alaska Native corporations, which provide services to Alaska Natives but do not have a government-to-government relationship with the United States. The question raised in the case set for oral arguments Monday is whether the corporations are tribes for purposes of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act, which defines “tribes” under a 1975 law meant to strengthen their abilities to govern themselves.
The Kansas City Royals traded outfielder Nick Heath, who had been designated for assignment earlier in the week, to the Arizona Diamondbacks for minor league pitcher Eduardo Herrera on Saturday.

Jonathan Brady/GettyPrince Philip was laid to rest Saturday afternoon in an extraordinary funeral at Windsor Castle which, because of tough British coronavirus regulations, was attended by just 30 people—and for the duration of which the widowed queen sat alone and masked. She cut an intensely solitary figure, and the Mail reported she and Prince Charles were seen weeping.In accordance with royal tradition, there was no eulogy or personal statement made by a family member.Prince Harry and Prince William Join Royal Family Procession Behind Prince Philip’s CoffinHowever, those watching for a sign of easing royal relations will have been moved and heartened by the sight of Prince William and Prince Harry walking next to each other after the service talking, alongside Kate Middleton.Optimists are likely to read the image of the brothers chatting as a promising sign of potential reconciliation. They have not seen each other in over a year, and their reported rift was only exacerbated by Harry and Meghan’s Oprah interview in which Harry spoke of his brother and father Prince Charles being “trapped” in the royal family, as well as an ongoing estrangement with his father. Both Harry and Meghan alleged an unnamed member of the royal family had queried the color of the unborn Archie’s skin, and that Meghan had received no support when she had felt suicidal. Prince Philip thought that interview was “madness,” his official biographer has said.

Gareth Fuller/WPA Pool/Getty Images There were suggestions that the queen had ordered the brothers to be separated by their cousin Peter Philips as they walked behind their grandfather’s coffin before the funeral in a reflection of their difficulties.However, after the funeral, TV images showed the brothers and Kate together, and then just speaking the two of them as they walked in a group of other senior royal family members away from St George’s Chapel.As the royal family exited the chapel, stopping to exchange a few words with the Dean of Westminster, the brothers were next to each other. William left first, but tarried a little as his brother exchanged words with the priest, waiting for him to catch up. The brothers then walked in the direction of the royal apartments, accompanied by Kate who was by Harry’s side. As they walked up the hill towards the castle, the brothers appeared to separate from Kate and continue talking as they walked in the bright spring sunshine.

Dominic Lipinski / POOL / Getty During the service, much of the musical content was provided by a small choir of four. The pieces, all of which were chosen by Philip, were “Melita,” by J B Dykes (1823-76) William Whiting (1825-78) arranged by James Vivian (b. 1974), the Jubilate by Benjamin Britten (1913-76), in C. The choir then sang Psalm 104, which the Duke of Edinburgh requested should be set to music by William Lovelady. The choir closed with the Anthem, Russian Kontakion of the Departed, translated by William John Birkbeck (1859-1916) Kiev Melody, arranged by Sir Walter Parratt, KCVO (1841-1924). The readings were the first lesson Ecclesiasticus 43. 11-26, which was read by the Dean of Windsor. The second lesson was John 11. 21-27 read by the Archbishop of Canterbury.After the duke was lowered into the royal vault, a traditional lament was played on the bagpipes by a Pipe Major of the Royal Regiment of Scotland, who walked from the North Quire Aisle to the Dean’s Cloister. The Last Post was then sounded by Buglers of the Royal Marines from the west end of the Nave, followed by the Reveille by the State Trumpeters of the Household Cavalry. The Buglers of the Royal Marines finally sounded the call for “Action Stations”—at the specific request of the Duke.

As the service ended, the queen left the chapel first, followed by Prince Charles the the rest of the family.Proceedings began at exactly 1440 (0940 EDT) when the duke’s coffin, draped in his personal standard and with a sword given to him by Elizabeth’s father, George VI, laid on top, was carried out of the castle by eight Grenadier Guards and loaded onto an adapted Land Rover. Its conversion into a hearse at the royal garages was overseen by none other than the mischievous, disruptive duke himself.

The coffin was followed by a cortege comprised of senior members of the royal family, including Charles, William and Harry, although the brothers at that moment were separated by their cousin Peter Philips. The queen herself appeared at the final moment, driven in a Bentley accompanied by one of her ladies-in-waiting.The cortege marched in time to the stirring sounds of the funeral march played by the Band of the Grenadier Guards, with a gun fired every minute by the King’s Guard royal artillery.

The duke’s coffin was elegantly removed and carried into the chapel by the bearer party. Although the entire service was televised there were only occasional shots of the royal family themselves, and no close-ups. When the cameras focused on them, the family were pictured with their heads bowed.
