TBS Today: Happy Friday

We're sending you off into the three-day weekend with a lot of new stories to read.

Most of them are short dispatches that we gleaned from the court files this week.

We also checked in with UC Berkeley about what happens next as far as last Friday's gunfire on campus.

We'll be here monitoring for breaking news this weekend and will keep you posted if anything major happens. But hopefully the rain will keep any untoward activity down.

Here's wishing everyone some time off to unplug in the coming days.

Barring breaking news, we'll be back in touch Tuesday.

Remember: You can turn your phone sideways to view images alongside the headlines.
