While many fans rejoiced at Rosario Dawson's recent appearance as Ahsoka Tano on The Mandalorian, plenty were dismayed and disappointed that the 41-year-old actress has a lawsuit against her and her family based on their alleged attack of a transperson and "longtime family friend."

Prior to Dawson's anticipated debut on The Mandalorian, LGBTQ+ fans felt that little attention was paid to the pending lawsuit, which felt like added erasure of trans rights in a year when 39 transgender or gender non-conforming people were killed in targeted crimes, often with the added insult of being unreported or misreported. (That's to say nothing of non-fatal violent crimes against transpeople, including a recent attack against Laverne Cox and her friend.)

Initially, the lawsuit against Dawson and her family included battery, assault, trespass, discrimination, civil rights and labor violations. However, recent court documents show that 18 of the 20 claims have been "withdrawn voluntarily without a settlement."

Actors and their stunt doubles coordinated to make some next level social-distancing action

One of the things that has kept quarantine from being completely dull has been watching different media figures adapt to the new restrictions.

SNL has had fun with minimal at-home wardrobe and makeup and green screen silliness. Talk show hosts are making video calls work for interviews and sketches, and abundant free time has made it possible to organize massive, virtual cast reunions from various beloved TV shows and movies. But no other group has had quite as much fun with the challenge of social distancing content as the star-studded cast of Zoë Bell's elaborate new fight scene, "Boss B**** Fight Challenge."
