7:03 am
voting to overturn roe v. wade. >> crowds gathered after the report was released. we have team coverage of this story and our senior national correspondent terry moran starts us off there at the supreme court. good morning, terry. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this is a shocking leak out of the supreme court, a breach of traditions of confidentiality and secrecy and trust and if this draft opinion is authentic, and while abc news hasn't independently confirmed it, it does look like the real thing. it means that the conservative justices here are poised to overturn roe v. wade and 50 years of constitutional law and profoundly transforming the lives of women in the united states. overnight tensions flared outside the nation's highest court after an unprecedented leak. [ crowd chanting ] >> hey, hey, ho, ho. roe v. wade has got to go. >> reporter: an apparent draft of opinion obtained by politico
7:04 am
dated february 10th apparently shows that five conservative justices have voted to overturn roe versus wade and nearly 50 years of abortion rights precedence. the draft opinion is apparently written by justice alito, not meant to be released to the public and is not final but it would uphold mississippi's ban on abortion after 15 weeks and explicitly overturn roe versus wade and the 1992 decision that reaffirmed it, planned parenthood versus casey. the language of the draft is blunt. at times scornful of the landmark decision that protected a woman's right to choose abortion. justice alito apparently writing that, roe was egregiously wrong from the start and calls it an abuse of judicial authority and adds, it is time to heed the constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people's elected representatives. abortion rights groups including planned parenthood sharply criticized this leaked opinion but reminded a woman, it's outrageous, unprecedented, but
7:05 am
it is not final. abortion is your right and it is still legal. and senate majority leader chuck schumer and house speaker nancy pelosi issuing a joint statement declaring that justices like brett kavanaugh and neil gorsuch lied to the senate, ripped up the constitution and defiled both precedents and the supreme court's reputation. >> they are not going to get away with this. i don't care what i have to do, they are not going to do this to america. there is more of us than there is of them and we are going to fight. >> reporter: but the bombshell report comes as five states enacted strict abortion restrictions and sweeping bans, ready to cut off access to care and 13 states could trigger laws which would immediately outlaw abortion once the court overturns roe. and abortion rights activists can feel their triumph at hand. >> we are so excited of the prospect of the court overturning roe and finally sending this awful decision of the court back to history.
7:06 am
>> reporter: this leak if proved authentic is a crisis because justices frequently draft opinions and circulate them and votes can change, but it certainly does look like the conservatives are ready to go all the way and overturn roe. george? >> right now it sure does. terry, thanks very much. let's bring in cecilia vega, our chief legal analyst, dan abrams and, cecilia, let me begin with you. shocking for the country. shocking for this white house. >> reporter: exactly. the president just released a statement. he's saying we don't know whether this draft is genuine or reflects the final decision of the court. he believes a woman's right to choose is fundamental. if the court does overturn roe, it will fall to elected officials. he said voters will have to elect pro-choice officials and he wants congress to codify roe v. wade into law. it's tough to overstate how
7:07 am
seismic this news is in washington. conservatives are opposed to abortion rights praising this decision. democrats are sounding the alarm saying the breach doesn't compare with what's at stake. nancy pelosi and chuck schumer are saying the supreme court is poised to inflict the greatest restrictions on rights, not just on women's rights. >> okay, dan, take everybody behind the scenes. these draft opinions are written all the time. likely after oral arguments dated february 10th. this is the way the justices do their work. >> correct. they first have a meeting, conference where they decide sort of where do they basically stand? then someone's assigned to write the opinion, in this case justice alito. that opinion is distributed for discussion. now, it is more than just a, oh, hey, this is something i was thinking about. this is justice alito's initial draft opinion based on that conference, based on these
7:08 am
agreements and understandings about who is on which side. but there certainly have been cases where justices have changed their side, that alliances have shifted but it's unusual. so expect to see the language change for certain from what we see here, but don't likely expect to see the numbers change, although it's possible. >> terry moran, the missing man here, chief justice john roberts. some would think maybe he would be trying to work behind the scenes to alter that opinion to see if he could shift one of the five to a slightly different position. >> reporter: that's right and there may have been indications that he was trying to do that, that's one of the theories as to who might have leaked this, but chief justice roberts has been an institutionalist and doesn't want the court to take giant steps rewriting constitutional law and transforming life in america. he thinks that will damage the court's credibility. the conservatives say roe is wrong and needs to go. >> dan, if this holds and there
7:09 am
are five votes to overturn roe v. wade it will accelerate a process in the country that we're seeing every state going its own way. >> there are some states that still have laws on the books banning abortion, just waiting for roe to be overturned. so you're going to see, you know, 20 or so states, maybe a little more, which are banning abortion outright. you'll see the purple states which may restrict abortion more than it is today and then you may see in some of the blue states actually making it more accessible for abortion but you're going to see it state by state decide none of these sort of legal battles over the number of weeks. >> cecelia, we don't know exactly when the final opinion will come out. we do know it's likely to have a big impact on the midterms. >> reporter: the polling has been consistent, the majority of americans believe that the supreme court should uphold roe v. wade. it's been that way for years but abortion not at the top of the list of concerns for voters. it's shaping up to be a midterm to really rally their base and this is the start of what's
7:10 am
going to be a heated next six months to come. >> no question about it. michael? >> all right, george, the report on roe is already coming in to play in midterm elections with the first test being today's high stakes primary in ohio. it's also shaping up as a major test of former president trump's influence over the republican party. congressional correspondent rachel scott is in cincinnati with the latest. good morning, rachel. >> reporter: michael, good morning. midterm elections, primaries, it's all about support, but it's also about turnout. i can tell you that democrats in this state will be using this report to galvanize their base. the state's democratic party rattled by this news, releasing a statement overnight saying that this proves that reproductive health, abortion, birth control is on the line in this november election. it has been a defining issue up and down the ballot. ohio is one of those states that is likely to ban abortion if it is overturned by the supreme court laterthis summer. this morning all eyes are on the
7:11 am
republican senate primary. it is one of the most contentious, one of the most expensive races in the country. it will be the first major test of trump's endorsement. the former president throwing his support behind j.d. vance throwing the crowded field a curve ball. vance is hoping trump's endorsement will propel him to victory and told me this is his race to lose. robin? >> many waiting to see what will happen. now to the severe weather. on the move this morning after at least for reported tornadoes touched down in kansas and oklahoma. let's go to ginger with the latest on that and the new storm, ginger. >> yes, so many things to look at here. we'll begin with one of four of those reported tornadoes, this one over omega, oklahoma, captured by koco's chopper. you see the top rotating and then you see the bottom rotating. doesn't have to be the condensation in the middle for that to be a tornado because that is a tornado and we saw damage. thankfully no injuries reported.
7:12 am
these videos out of monroe. you'll end up with flash y we'ln flooding as a possibility, louisville, lexington, columbus, cincinnati and even pittsburgh make their way into the primarily damaging wind. that starts this afternoon, goes through this evening. but turn back to the plains, wednesday into thursday, george, the same area that's been hit for the last week is going to have more tornadoes in oklahoma and texas and then here from missouri down to shreveport. >> we know you'll be on it. ginger, thanks very much. we now go to the latest in ukraine. a pentagon official calling russian gains in the latest offensive minimal at best but the situation is getting more desperate in mariupol. senior foreign correspondent ian pannell is in ukraine. good morning, ian. >> reporter: yeah, george, good morning, from the outskirts of kharkiv. i don't know if you can hear some of the sound here but we're certainly hearing the sound of heavy battles taking place. we're seeing some ukrainian tanks moving up towards positions but hearing russians firing back, these multiple rocket launch systems.
7:13 am
the ukrainians are on the offensive pushing the russians back from the villages all around this area. this whole district has been pretty much emptied of residents. we see the debris, the shrapnel, the bomb damage all around here and the residents have been forced to leave as this battle grinds on here and, of course, in that strategic city of mariupol. overnight, russian forces again pounding the azovstal steel plant, the last stronghold for ukrainian fighters and up to 200 civilians trapped in the strategic port city of mariupol. the large factory complex devastated by relentless bombardments. smoke from the site seen in this video circulating online. the russian shelling resumed after the first group of roughly 100 civilians were evacuated from the steel plant. heading for safety in the ukrainian controlled city of zaporizhzhia. more attempts are being made to rescue other civilians, but ukraine's foreign minister saying the process is difficult. >> everything is fragile. things can fall apart at any given moment. >> reporter: now a u.s. official warning russia's attempt to
7:14 am
annex two more ukrainian territories by mid-may using false referenda to justify their claim. >> fabricated votes will not be considered legitimate, nor will any attempts to annex additional ukrainian territory. >> reporter: this comes as civilian targets come under repeated fire across southern and eastern ukraine. officials released this video showing a secondary school in flames after a russian strike. and to the south in odesa, rescuers rush to the scene of a missile that struck a dormitory reportedly killing a teenage boy and injuring a teenage girl. amid these attacks russia facing setbacks in the country. ukraine's military say this dramatic new footage shows two successful drone strikes on russian boats in the black sea and outside of kharkiv ukrainian forces successfully retaking villages on the outskirts of the city but the shelling of kharkiv continues. hundreds of the residents here the only place left that's safe to live is underground. here we met mikola and his wife
7:15 am
living between two turnstiles that lead down into the subway and moved here after his home was destroyed by the bombings. [speaking foreign language] "it's hard," he says, the pressure of this war taking a toll on the most vulnerable here. it is becoming clear the russians have run into major problems. we know that the russian chief of staff entered the donbas last week. he stayed there for a number of days. there are rumors that perhaps he was injured but the pentagon senior defense official certainly saying that they can't confirm or deny that. but clearly their advance is going much slower than they expected. the ukrainians are managing to hold them back so far. but it still feels there's a long way to go as it just, as you can hear, grinds on and on. george? >> month after month, thanks very much. michael? now to the growing manhunt for that alabama murder suspect who vanished along with a corrections officer last week. officials now issuing an arrest
7:16 am
warrant for the officer, accusing her of helping him escape. eva pilgrim has the latest. >> reporter: this morning, a nationwide manhunt under way for an alabama corrections officer and a capital murder suspect now on the run for four days. >> we consider both of them dangerous and in all probability both individuals are armed. >> reporter: overnight authorities releasing this wanted poster and a warrant for the arrest of vicki white, a 17-year corrections department veteran now facing charges for helping an inmate escape. vicki, a jail supervisor, left the detention center friday with inmate casey white for a court appearance that authorities now say did not exist. >> we know she participated. you know, now, whether she did that willingly or if she was coerced, threatened somehow to participate in this escape, not really sure. >> reporter: according to the sheriff, surveillance video show vicki white's patrol car
7:17 am
at 9:49 a.m. friday, eight minutes after the two left the jail at an intersection that was not on the way to the courthouse. nearly six hours later the two were reported missing. the timing of all this catching many at the jail off guard. the sheriff saying vicki white was planning to retire. friday the day she disappeared was supposed to be her last day. the 56-year-old had also just closed on the sale of her home on april 18th. this document obtained by our affiliate waay shows she sold it for over $95,000. vicki's former mother-in-law who remained close to white sharing this picture of vicki and her ex-husband saying this escape was totally out of character. >> vicki is not that kind of person. she was always nice to everybody. i can't understand it. >> reporter: authorities are looking at security cameras here at the jail. they're trying to determine if they were having a romantic relationship.
7:18 am
there are rewards being offered for information. authorities emphasize casey is 6'9" and you should not approach them. they're concerned because he is charged with murder he may feel like he has nothing to lose and they consider him very, very dangerous. guys? >> what a story. okay, eva, thanks very much. coming up, the latest on johnny depp and amber heard. their courtroom battle. the actress fired her pr team as she gets ready to take the stand. plus, that royal security breach. what we're learning about the impostor at windsor castle. first, back to ginger. >> we've had this perpetual fire danger in arizona and new mexico. yesterday was really bad. more than 60-mile-per-hour winds and you saw that combo of the calf canyon and hermit's peak fire. that is burning more than 138,000 acres and we've got tough conditions again today. fire weather watches for most of the state of new mexico with red flag warnings and a quick look at the really dry conditions too. your local weather in 30 seconds.

>> gone so quickly but time is literally money if you hope to get your money back. immediate reporting needs to occur if any recovery can be attempted. the first thing that the individual needs to do is contact their bank immediately. costly and tragic when this happens, robin. >> what can home buyers do to protect themselves before this happens? >> so i talked to the secret service about this and their tips are check the email address and url used in any communication asking you to transfer money. many people are doing business on their phone. that makes catching this thing slightly different because the addresses can look slightly different. it's harder to see on your phone so the best thing to do is break out your computer before sending out such a large sum of money. you want to verify with the closing agents and parties in advance what the process is going to be before the closing. it should never change. so it is a red flag if you receive an email asking to do things differently when it's time to send money. and finally call your title company before you do the transfer to confirm that your money is going to the right place and, robin, one other
7:45 am
thing the secret service told me this often happens right before the weekend. people are busy. they're trying to get things off their plate. once it's the weekend you're not thinking about your bank so a lot of these scammers prey on that. >> you're right about addresses. it can be just one letter off but it looks so legit. >> that's why you look at it on your computer because then you can really see it. >> people so excited to be closing on their homes. >> it's so sad. >> really sad. >> thank you as always for bringing us great information? coming up next, we have our "play of the day" on this tuesday morning. we'll be right back.

>> always looking forward -- catch up with her pretty soon. >> absolutely and as we count down to mother's day on sunday, we hear from one amazing mom and her superstar kids. sonya curry wrote a book called "fierce love." looking forward to that. >> they are a beautiful family. first, we have a lot of news this morning starting with the leak of an apparent draft opinion that would overturn roe v. wade, the landmark 1973 decision that laid the foundation for abortion rights so let's go back to our senior national correspondent terry moran there at the supreme court for us. good morning, again, terry. >> reporter: good morning, robin. this is just an extraordinary leak. it's hard to describe. nothing really like it in the history of the supreme court and if it is authentic, as it seems to be, it means that the conservative majority on this court stands poised to overrule roe versus wade and roll back for what half a century american women have understood to be
8:03 am
their fundamental constitutional right. overnight tensions flared outside the nation's highest court after an unprecedented leak. >> choose -- >> choose -- >> all: women. has got to go. , ho, roe v. wad- >> reporter: an apparent draft of a supreme court opinion obtained by politico dated february 10th apparently shows that five conservative justices have voted to overturn roe versus wade and nearly 50 rights years of abortion rights precedent. the draft was apparently wrote by justice alito. it was not meant to be released to the public and is not final. but it would uphold mississippi's ban on abortion after 15 weeks and explicitly overturn roe versus wade. and the 1992 decision that reaffirmed it, planned parenthood versus casey. justice alito writing apparently that roe was egregiously wrong from the start and calls it an abuse of judicial authority and adds, it is time to heed the
8:04 am
constitution and return the issue of abortion to the people's elected representatives. abortion rights groups including planned parenthood sharply criticize this leaked opinion but reminded a woman it's outrage, unprecedented but it is not final. abortion is your right and it is still legal. but the bombshell report comes as five states have enacted strict abortion restrictions and sweeping bans, many of them ready to immediately cut off access to care. and 13 states have so-called trigger laws, which would immediately outlaw abortion once the court overturns roe. so this is apparently a draft opinion giving us an inside look at what the justices are doing. the justices often circulate draft opinions and votes can change with each revision, but what happens here may freeze those votes. at any rate it looks like the conservatives are poised to go all the way and overrule roe. >> it certainly does. terry, thanks. let's get more from our chief
8:05 am
white house correspondent cecilia vega. the white house and the vice president is set to speak to an abortion rights group tonight. >> reporter: yes, on the schedule before this leak came but all eyes will be on her this evening. we just heard from the president. he said we don't know whether this draft is genuine or reflects the final decision of the court. he says he believes a woman's right to choose is fundamental and if the court does end up overturning roe it will fall on elected officials to protect this crucial right. he says he's looking ahead to midterms, saying voters will have to elect pro-choice officials. he wants congress to codify roe versus wade into law. polling has been consistent for decades. a majority of americans believe the supreme court should up hold roe, but abortion is not at the top of the list of voters' concerns. this is shaping up to be midterm about kitchen table issues, inflation and the economy. this morning you're hearing

8:16 am
plant-based diet had similar growth and nutrition compared to those who ate meat. >> that's right, but they did find children who were vegan, vegetarian more likely to be slightly underweight. you've heard me say it before as a nutritionist and a doctor, being significantly underweight can be as bad as being significantly overweight. but as long as it doesn't impact a child's growth curve, that's really what you care about. so, you know, it's something that was significant with this finding, but not found to be or thought to be dangerous. >> if you're one of these parents and want to introduce your kids to more vegetables and possibly maybe have them become just vegan, how do you get started with that because that could be a tough task? >> i think it is and as parents we can relate to that, you know, when you introduce certain things to a child's diet. the first thing i think you want to have a lot of vegetables on hand at all times and put them into every meal. have a lot of color on the plate. the other thing is don't bring junk food into the house. it just makes it more difficult

8:19 am
so when your father told the world that he was gay at the age of 82, how long had you known? >> i found out in my late 20s. when it initially came out, i was just so heartbroken that he wasn't able to live his whole truth for all those years, for a lifetime and that if he hadn't done it that way, then i wouldn't exist. and so my gratitude for him to sacrifice himself so that he could have a family and i got to be his daughter, that to me is an enormous gift that he gave to me. and i just wish selfishly for him he could have been living his truth from the beginning because i believe it is one of the greatest harms one can do to one's self to deny something that involves the most basic

human need which is love and connection to the person that you're meant to love and connect to. >> you write about your remarkable childhood growing up in broadway dressing rooms with your father, watching him on stage and your mother doing the same. >> i grew up knowing i was the luckiest girl in the world. there was no doubt in my mind, my parents loved me, still love me. i have two 90-year-old parents who i talk to every day. everything about my life was musicals and ballet and taking ballet classes and taking piano lessons and meeting and hanging around with people like stephen sondheim and leonard bernstein. >> during the day you're at school. in the evenings you're going to studio 54, and apparently that's not how you're supposed to say it if you went there. you started using drugs and dating older men.
8:21 am
how did that all happen? >> my parents have and always have had a very definitive idea of how things should be done and what they expect. and i was very good at intuiting it and delivering. i wanted to do what they wanted me to do except for there was this other part of me, this teenage part of me that was needing to indivuate, needing to separate from the young, perfect, doting daughter. >> what's the message? what's the reason behind the book? >> what i hope people take away from this book is no one's life is perfect. you don't get out unscathed. for me the most painful moments, the most confounding situations are the ones for me that i have grown the most from and that were, i guess, necessary to get e to where i am today which is happier than i've ever been is

8:31 am
living years, but i have a really, really long career by today's standards and a lot has changed as we know and it's -- i think it was a necessary thing to do to tell that story, well, 30, 40 years of touring and playing and having a life, you know. >> especially as a woman in this business. >> woman in the business and things change and also our business in general, like imaging and ageism. i mean, that's a different thing too so it's certainly sexism. i mean, all of it, it's just -- it's a journey and it's great to see a person instead of a celebrity, you know, tell their story, so -- >> over 30 years in the business, people think they know you and -- but you get personal in this book. talk about depression and other things that a lot of people probably didn't know that you had gone through. >> yeah. >> so why is now the time to tell this part of your life? >> i've just really always been really private and i think being my age now it feels a little bit
8:32 am
like a privilege and an honor to be able to sit down and say, you know, people who are very visible and who are doing high-profile work, they're still people at the end of the day. and, you know, we are pretty harsh about tearing people down and if people only think that i'm the girl that did "all i wanna do" and "soak up the sun," there's a whole life that goes behind wanting to write songs and generally the songs that tell the story are not the ones that get played. >> it shows real insight into the creative process. one of your big hits was inspired by a poem. >> i picked up the poetry book and started just kind of freeform, all i wanna do is have a little fun before i die, there's a man next to me out of nowhere. i just kind of acted out the poem and we put this hook in inin --
8:33 am

8:34 am
>> i think i'll make them watch it. to be honest, i think they'll be bored silly. later on they might enjoy it. it's a lot of mom talking and a lot of old footage. i don't know. i do want them to see it, though, because, you know, you learn that your parents were people before you were born. >> exactly. >> that's always a shock. >> isn't it? isn't it? >> yeah. >> new music. >> yes. >> based on this and the single "forever" inspired by your boys. >> yes. >> how is being a mother? >> it's the greatest thing ever. i mean it simplifies things. my decision-making process is so easy now. it's just whatever is best for them and the song is inspired by how much stress our kids experience, stress i didn't have. you know, they're so tapped into what's happening in the world and social media always coming at them and to just be able to say to your kids, every moment of your life is a gift and don't be tapped into anything that is telling you untruths about who you are and it's just such a great -- it's the best job i've
8:35 am
ever had. >> no doubt. do you think they'll follow in your footsteps? >> i don't know. i think my youngest son, he's deciding between the mlb and the nba right now. [ laughter ] >> he's not sure which way he's going to go and then my older son is on a fishing team which i didn't know that was a thing. >> what is a fishing team? >> you can get scholarships to colleges on fishing teams. yeah, he's starting on a high school fishing team in nashville and they're doing really well. he is an outdoors guy. >> i'm curious. what is a fishing team? >> i'll get you on the phone with him. you know, i thought fishing was luck but there's more of a science to it. yeah, he's really into it but he's a great bass player too so i don't know. we'll see which one pays more. >> yeah. you are a delight. >> oh, thank you. >> thank you for your willingness to be vulnerable and to show this side of you. >> thank you. >> it's just so important.
8:36 am

back now on "gma" with chef rick martinez bringing us a new cookbook called "mi cocina." he helps people to know there's so much more to mexican food than tacos and burritos. cecilia vega got a chance to cook with him. hey, cecilia. >> reporter: got a chance. you know i love to eat. this was a dream assignment. i got to eat some of my favorite foods and got to eat some foods i've never heard of. >> so the first thing is called -- [ speaking foreign language ] >> you got to say it slower. [ speaking foreign language ] >> got that? >> reporter: i'm in the kitchen with chef rick martinez and he is schooling me. >> this is a pre-hispanic dish from a small town. >> i had never heard of it. vegan fritters from blossoms, chia and flaxseeds. the verdict? wow, these are insane. for this chef it's mission accomplished through his cooking and new book "mi cocina," his
8:40 am
goal is to make people think differently about mexico and mexican food. >> i feel like americans love mexican food, but they only know maybe five dishes. unfortunately, when mexico is written about or you hear it on the news, it's always negative. and it is an absolutely stunningly beautiful culture and country and the people are some of the most generous and beautiful people i've ever met. >> reporter: a lesson he learned firsthand quitting his job as a food writer in new york, buying a car in mexico and driving around the entire country nearly 30,000 miles visiting every state. he fell so in love with it he bought a house in mazatlan and got a dog and now for martinez who grew up in texas, mexico is home. he wants to share his love of it with everyone. especially mexican-americans. these are real enchiladas. who like him might have grown up not knowing much about the cuisine of their heritage. >> it's still mind blowing for me that a mexican-american, a
8:41 am
stranger traveling across the country was welcomed into so many homes and so many people wanted to share what they've grown or what they had made or what they had cooked with me, a stranger. >> a lot of people might not understand something that you just said. that as a mexican-american you would go to mexico, your motherland, and people might not 100% welcome you in. people think you're mexican, but you're not. you're mexican-american. that's a totally different experience. >> and you're also believed to represent a country that you don't know anything about. you know, i had never been to the interior of mexico. i had only ever been to border towns as a child. >> you're not mexican enough for the mexicans. you're not american enough for americans. the age old problem we face. >> right. i wanted to learn more and so, you know, for me the only way to do it was to go back and explore and try to figure out where i come from, where my family is from, where my food is from.
8:42 am
>> reporter: for martinez it's been a journey of self-discovery that has come full circle. >> what's your favorite dish that your mom used to make? >> there's a dish -- you're going to make me cry. so this was my i'm coming home from college dish. she would always ask what do you want and i would say -- [ speaking foreign language ] and because i also knew that it was the only time that she would also make homemade flour tortillas. like i would open the door and i would get that smell of the pork and then i would hear her rolling pin click on the marble. and that memory is just like -- it's just so embedded in me. >> you're making me think of my grandmother. it's the sound of her making tortillas like that makes me think -- you're going to make me cry too. >> reporter: for both of us it is the food that makes us who we are. all right, guys, i can say it now. [ speaking foreign language ] they are delish. i think you've got some there. these are these vegan squash blossom fritters.
8:43 am
so good. you got some of those legit enchiladas. as you guys eat let me tell the viewers the qr code on the screen, get these recipes, "mi cocina," the book is out today. it is fantastic. you guys want to say it with me. [ speaking foreign language ] >> yeah. [ speaking foreign language ] >> yeah. what i want to say is thank you because i want to eat some more and we're going to go to ginger now. >> thank you, michael. i love a squash blossom recipe. i'll have to try it. this is not file video. nebraska had up to 15 inches of snow, places like colorado, denver specifically, usually have their second highest totals in april and only got a trace so getting more yesterday was something and it's coming with a whole lot of cold air. chicago's high with the wind off the lake, that is going to be icky.

now to a victory for the plaintiffs in a lawsuit seeking reparations for the tulsa race massacre. when a white mob descended on a prosperous black neighborhood in 1921 killing as many as 300 people, a judge ruled that the lawsuit can move forward with three of the survivors of the terror in the courtroom. steve osunsami has this important story for us. good morning, steve. >> reporter: good morning, to you, robin. we talked with one of the lead plaintiffs who turns 108 years old a week from today and she told me that she would like to see a day of justice before she leaves this earth. they are suing for a new hospital and for a victims' compensation fund for the living survivors and other families. [ cheers and applause ] it's a small but important
8:45 am
victory this morning for the three living survivors of the tulsa race massacre of 1921. >> to think and feel this victory is amazing. >> reporter: all three are more than 100 years old suing the city of tulsa, the county, the sheriff and other authorities who they say allowed the massacre to happen. they made their way to court encouraging a judge to let their case move forward where she agreed and if successful their lawsuit could mean potentially hundreds of millions of dollars for the victims and their families. >> is it safe to say you and the other survivors are pushing for payments? >> yes, whatever it takes to replace our loss. >> reporter: mother fletcher, as they call her, was a child when she says a mob of her white neighbors burned down her home and went killing black families. >> you're still afraid? >> yes. oh, sure. sleeping at night and the thoughts stay with you all the time. >> reporter: tulsa's mayor says he doesn't want today's
8:46 am
taxpayers to pay for yesterday's crimes. >> i don't want to settle a lawsuit and have a property tax levied on this generation of tulsans to punish them for something they did not do. >> reporter: the mayor isn't alone. he speaks for a great deal of americans. we should underline that none of these families have ever been compensated for their loss to property or business. for an in-depth look at the tulsa race massacre, be sure to check out our podcast, "tulsa's buried truth" available wherever you get your podcasts or point your phone at that qr code. robin? >> such an important story and one, steve, that i hope that more people will want to know about. just, you know, again, this was considered black wall street. these were people that were told, get a job and they were doing and it was all wiped out. >> reporter: it was one of the most prosperous black
8:47 am
communities in america. many blocks of homes and businesses. it was an economy unto itself created, frankly, by the ugly pressures of america's racism at the time and what happened when this neighborhood was destroyed was essentially jealousy and resentment on the other side of the railroad tracks led to the execution of these families and the burning of their homes. so it was absolutely a tragedy. these families are seeking justice and we could see them see their day in court. >> we could do that. all right, steve. appreciate you being on the story for us.
