In national news:

The U.S. Supreme Court will consider a major employment case during their nine month term that could limit the class action rights of workers for a variety of labor disputes. The Trump administration will argue against its own National Labor Relations Board, (NLRB) siding with companies that require workers to arbitrate disputes with their employers individually. The Justice Department reversed Obama-era guidance in June regarding this issue. The companies involved in the consolidated cases that will be heard by the high court justices are: Ernst & Young LLP, gas station operator Murphy Oil USA Inc and healthcare software company Epic Systems Corporation.
