How to use stall in a sentence?

  1. Chris Farrell:

    There was no lawful reason to turn anything over to the Hillary Clinton Foundation for review, it was an administrative ‘ stall tactic ’ consistent with the Clintons' cover-up strategy and facilitated by a complicit State Department. This is a shameful manipulation of the FOIA process to hide information from the public.

  2. Montgomery County Police:

    The victim was walking in a school hallway when she met two male students, identified as Montano and Sanchez. Montano asked the victim to walk with him and Sanchez. Montano asked the victim to engage in sexual intercourse. She refused, montano asked the victim again and then forced her into a boy’s bathroom and then into a stall. Montano and Sanchez both raped the victim inside the bathroom stall.

  3. Joe MacGregor:

    Rifts can stall when they reach the softer ice, like that found in the medial flowline.

  4. Jineth Bedoya:

    I'm grateful for the actions being taken today, but it should've happen years ago, el Panadero's testimony taken more than 15 years ago, his version of the story, which is completely false, was endorsed by a prosecutor (with the Colombian attorney general's office) and that allowed for the process to stall and the case to remain in impunity.

  5. Ivan Brehm:

    Michelin should, in my opinion, stay clear from the coffee shop and hawker stall culture, these run deep in the makeup of Singaporean society and any unnecessary polemic could undermine the guide's overall relevance.
