As the U.S. Supreme Court begins hearings for a political gerrymandering case, a Utah initiative to curb the practice receives big funding from private donors.

And a Utah woman successfully sues her attacker 20 years after the deadline to file a lawsuit for sexual assault cases.

The director of a Utah coalition says Thursday's announcement by United States Secretary of Education Betsy DeVos is an insult to victims of sexual assault.

“Secretary DeVos’ comments, while they were fairly ambiguous, the message was crystal clear,” says Turner Bitton, executive director for the Utah Coalition Against Sexual Assault, a nonprofit organization that provides education and resources to various groups around the state.

Bitton and his group work as advocates for survivors of sexual violence.
