Friday News Round-Up: Porter Trial Recap; Climate Conference Wrap-Up; Amazon vs OrderUp

P. Kenneth Burns

It’s two weeks down - and supposedly- less than one to go in the trial of Officer William Porter. What have we learned from this week’s testimony? How will competing timelines of when Gray was injured impact the jury? University of Baltimore law professor J. Amy Dillard offers her analysis.

Here's the latest from WYPR reporter P. Kenneth Burns, who is covering the trial.

Plus, the Paris Climate talks are drawing to a close. How close is the United Nations to reaching an agreement? Andrew Revkin of the New York Time's environmental policy blog, DOT EARTH, gives us the highlights.

We’ll hear news headlines from Jonathan Munshaw, associate editor of the Baltimore Business Journal. He'll also tell us how Amazon's food ordering and delivery service compares to that of the homegrown OrderUp. And, to put us in the holiday spirit, a local effort to collect diapers for babies in need and an pet adoption event in Carroll County.
