Aristotle Announces Panel Dismisses CFTC Motion Against ‘Predictit’ Plaintiffs

Aristotle Announces Panel Dismisses CFTC Motion Against ‘Predictit’ PlaintiffsPanel of judges side with PredictIt plaintiffs, grant hearing at next possible opportunity

WASHINGTON - January 18, 2023 - (Newswire.com)

A motions panel of the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, comprised of three judges, has denied the Commodity Futures Trading Commission's (CFTC) motion to dismiss the appeal of a case brought by more than a dozen plaintiffs, including PredictIt traders, educators, and market service provider Aristotle. 

The Court decision ensures that the plaintiffs get a hearing, now scheduled for Feb. 8, 2023, in the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals, the jurisdiction in which the lawsuit was filed.

"It is Aristotle's view that the CFTC's withdrawal of PredictIt's no-action letter in August has already hurt Traders and it threatens to do even greater harm. We are pleased that the Fifth Circuit agrees that the plaintiffs deserve their day in court as soon as possible," said David Mason, Aristotle General Counsel and former Federal Election Commission (FEC) Chairman. 

After several months of inaction in a lower court, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals recognizes the significance of the issues at hand and the damage caused by further delays. 

In the Plaintiffs Reply Brief to the Fifth Circuit on Jan. 12, plaintiffs had stated: 

"Unelected bureaucrats have been vested with great power over American citizens and businesses and are protected from damages by sovereign immunity, even when they behave arbitrarily. What makes this arrangement remotely consistent with fairness and democracy is that Congress empowered courts to review agencies' momentous decisions and to pause them before they cause too much irreparable damage to the governed. 

"This Court should reject the CFTC's attempt to break that balance and evade this crucial check on its power. The Court should grant an injunction, so the substantial legal questions presented on the merits will not be academic when reached, the agency already having done its worst to the citizens it governs."

Aristotle is the contract service provider for the PredictIt Market, which has operated under No-Action Relief CFTC 14-130 since 2014.

New ‘Freedom Libraries’ in California Institutions Seek to Empower Incarcerated People

New ‘Freedom Libraries’ in California Institutions Seek to Empower Incarcerated PeopleLibraries with empowering, carefully curated literature will be available at Valley State Prison and Central California Women's Facility

NEW HAVEN, Conn. - January 18, 2023 - (Newswire.com)

The national non-profit Freedom Reads has partnered with California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) to open Freedom Libraries at Valley State Prison (VSP) and Central California Women's Facility (CCWF) in Chowchilla, Calif. 

A carefully curated, 500-book collection will be available at each institution. Books will be placed in mini portable libraries in each of VSP's 17 housing units and also made available to staff. CCWF will open five housing unit libraries. 

Each bookshelf is handcrafted out of maple, walnut or cherry and is curved to contrast the straight lines and bars of prisons as well as to evoke Martin Luther King Jr.'s line about the "arc of the universe" bending "toward justice." 

Founded by 2021 MacArthur Fellow and Yale Law School graduate Reginald Dwayne Betts, who was sentenced to nine years in prison at age 16, the Freedom Libraries seek to create a space in prisons to encourage community and where reaching for a book can be as spontaneous as human curiosity. Each bookshelf is handcrafted out of maple, walnut or cherry and is curved to contrast the straight lines and bars of prisons as well as to evoke Martin Luther King Jr.'s line about the "arc of the universe" bending "toward justice."

"Far too often, the only thing that's beautiful in a prison are the people," said Betts, Founder and Executive Director of Freedom Reads. "With the opening of these libraries in VSP and CCWF we are bringing beauty, bringing books and bringing people inside to have the kinds of conversations we believe could help transform the lives of those incarcerated. We are thankful to share our goal of creating opportunities for daily engagement with literature inside their facilities."

Brandy Buenafe, Library Services Administrator for CDCR's statewide system of libraries, said she's eager to see the new books circulating at the institutions. "Reading is a step toward rehabilitation, and can create deep personal change in anyone who embraces it. Books and knowledge are irreplaceable and can lead to successful outcomes," Buenafe said. "We would like to thank Freedom Reads and Dwayne Betts for bringing these libraries to our prisons, and offering the gift to our incarcerated population that comes with reading."

Freedom Reads is among a host of rehabilitative programs offered at VSP and CCWF and is part of CDCR's commitment to providing opportunities for academic growth at all its institutions. Last year, VSP and CCWF began offering a bachelor's degree program through Fresno State University.

"Valley State Prison's goal is to empower the incarcerated population through literacy and education," said Acting Warden Matt McVay. "Freedom Reads' donation will be an invaluable addition to the rehabilitative and life-changing materials and programs available to those at VSP."

CCWF Warden Mike Pallares (A) said the generous donation has been eagerly anticipated. "I believe reading is a way to develop the mind and grow as a person, and these libraries will increase access and availability of good reading material at our prison."

Betts' nonprofit is a first-of-its-kind organization that empowers people through literature to imagine new possibilities for their lives. Books in the Freedom Library have been selected through consultations with hundreds of poets, novelists, philosophers, teachers, friends, and voracious readers. The libraries include contemporary poets, novelists, and essayists alongside classic works from Homer's The Odyssey to the Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, titles that remind us the book has long been a freedom project. Freedom Reads is working to put a Freedom Library within reach of every person incarcerated in this country. 

Following the openings of the libraries, Betts on Jan. 19 will perform for an audience at VSP and CCWF his one-man show Felon: An American Washi Tale. In this show he explores the lingering consequences of having a criminal record, fatherhood, the power of literature, and love. The show is based on Betts' poetry collection Felon

VSP is a low-security, general population institution open since 1995, and was converted from an all-female to an all-male institution in 2013. CCWF opened in 1990 and is the largest female institution in the state. 

About Freedom Reads:

Freedom Reads works to empower people through literature to confront what prison does to the spirit. Supported by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and inspired by the recognition that freedom begins with a book, Freedom Reads supports the efforts of people in prison to transform their lives through increased access to books and writers.

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers Joins ArrowStream’s Growing Supply Chain Network

Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers Joins ArrowStream’s Growing Supply Chain NetworkGrowing Fast-casual Chain Partners with Leading Foodservice Cloud Platform to Accelerate Growth & Expansion

CHICAGO - January 18, 2023 - (Newswire.com)

ArrowStream, Inc. ("ArrowStream"), the leading foodservice cloud platform for supply chain intelligence, is proud to announce its new partnership with Freddy's Frozen Custard & Steakburgers® ("Freddy's") and welcome them to its network of over 275 chain operators across 100,000 restaurant locations, 1,300 distribution locations and 10,000 manufacturers. 

Founded in 2002 in Wichita, KS, Freddy's is a fast-casual chain specializing in fresh, cooked-to-order, craveable menu items. At 457 locations across 36 states, Freddy's focuses on quality, hospitality, cleanliness, and timeless traditions to create a fun and inclusive environment for their guests. As Freddy's focuses on future growth and expansion into new markets, they chose ArrowStream to provide full visibility into product spend and inventory levels throughout their supply chain. 

"We didn't realize the value we were missing until we sat down with ArrowStream and did a supply chain visibility assessment," said Liz Kent, Purchasing Manager at Freddy's. "We have a relatively straightforward supply chain with a single distribution partner, but with ArrowStream we found several opportunities such as efficiency improvements, automated inventory alerts, and better cost controls. Having the ArrowStream platform in place will enable us to focus more time on strategic growth initiatives and the success of our franchisees."   

Like many growing brands without the right system in place, effective and efficient contract management and price auditing was a challenge for Freddy's. ArrowStream Central allows Freddy's to quickly identify overcharges and reduce pricing errors by streamlining their update and communication process. This process includes manufacturers submitting pricing updates within ArrowStream Central which are then approved by Freddy's. 

"We are thrilled to welcome Freddy's to ArrowStream," said Marc Larson, VP of Sales at ArrowStream. "Freddy's has built an incredible brand, and we're excited to support their growth. Freddy's frequent LTOs can place greater strain on the supply chain, so we're excited to help them proactively manage this complexity to ensure an optimal experience for their franchisees and customers." 

Freddy's is the latest foodservice operator to partner with ArrowStream, joining a growing list of customers, including Pollo Campero, Aroma Joe's, and Firehouse Subs, among others. ArrowStream's solutions are developed specifically for the foodservice industry and provide operators, distributors, and manufacturers an intelligent network that drives efficiency and cost savings in an end-to-end solution for their partners.
