NEW YORK — A representative for Roberta Flack has announced that the legendary musician has ALS, commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, and can no longer sing.

TESLA-MUSK COMPENSATION LAWSUIT

WILMINGTON, Del. — Testimony is under way in a shareholder lawsuit challenging approval by Tesla’s board of directors of a compensation plan potentially worth more than $55 billion for CEO Elon Musk. Attorneys packed a Delaware courtroom Monday as the trial began in a lawsuit filed in 2018. The lawsuit alleges that the performance-based stock option grant was negotiated by a compensation committee and approved in 2018 by board members who had conflicts because of personal and professional ties to Musk. It also alleges that a shareholder vote approving the plan was based on an incomplete and misleading proxy statement. The first witness was Ira Ehrenpreis, a prominent venture capitalist and longtime friend of Musk who chaired Tesla’s compensation committee when the grant was formulated. By Randall Chase.

ELECTION 2022-MARIJUANA-WHAT’S NEXT

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — Marijuana advocates are looking toward their next states to target after experiencing some mixed results in the recent elections. Cannabis legalization measures for adults passed in Maryland and Missouri but failed in Arkansas, North Dakota and South Dakota. Supporters already are looking toward a March legalization vote in Oklahoma. Ohio also could hold a vote next year. Supporters are hoping for legislative success in 2023 in Hawaii and Minnesota while also lining up more states for initiatives in 2024. Meanwhile, it could take several months before Missouri and Maryland residents legally can buy marijuana. By David A. Lieb. SENT: 980 words, photo.

REL–CATHOLIC BISHOPS

U.S. Catholic bishops plan to elect new leaders when they gather in Baltimore this week. The vote may signal whether the bishops want to be more closely aligned with Pope Francis’ agenda or maintain a more formal distance. Several of the 10 candidates to be the next president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops are part of its powerful conservative wing, and have not fully embraced some of the pope’s priorities. The bishops also will be marking the 20th anniversary of major sexual abuse reforms. These policies were adopted amid the scandals of 2002 when the Boston Globe exposed widespread abuse and cover-up in the church. By Peter Smith, Holly Meyer and David Crary.
