(DETROIT, Mich.) Hello and welcome to this Friday's edition of the Detroit Daily Round-Up. I hope everyone has a great (and warm) weekend!
Today is Friday, December 3, let's check out Detroit's biggest stories of the day.
On Thursday, nine lawyers associated with former President Donald Trump were ordered to pay Detroit and Michigan a total of $175,000 in sanctions for abusing the court system with a lawsuit challenging the 2020 election results.
The money must be paid within 30 days, and will cover the legal costs of defending against the suit, which totaled over $153,000 for the city and nearly $22,000 for the state.
On Friday at noon, Oakland County Prosecutor Karen McDonald is expected to charge the parents of the 15-year-old Ethan Crumbley after he allegedly shot and killed four teenagers at Oxford high school on Tuesday.
Prosecutor McDonald had previously said a decision would be made quickly on whether to charge the parents after their son allegedly got ahold of a handgun purchased four days before the mass shooting.
The U.S. military is deploying a third 22-member medical team to assist in Michigan hospitals that are dealing with record-high numbers of COVID-19 patients amid the state's fourth surge of infections.
According to the Michigan Health & Hospital Association, 76% of hospitalized COVID-19 patients weren't fully vaccinated and 87% of those in intensive care units weren't.
In the aftermath of Tuesday's deadly shooting spree at Oxford High School, schools across Michigan have been receiving copycat threats on social media, encrypted apps or on school walls.
On Friday, more than a dozen districts canceled classes due to the increase of these threats.
