Philadelphia man accused of being Nazi guard denied bail

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/10/2014 - 23:05
By Daniel Kelley PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - A former Nazi concentration camp guard awaiting extradition to Germany has been denied bail by a U.S. judge in Philadelphia. Lawyers for Johann Breyer, 89, had sought his release before an Aug. 21 extradition hearing, arguing in court papers he suffered from dementia and other ailments, and continued confinement could speed his deterioration and make it difficult to assist in his defense in Germany. U.S. Magistrate Judge Timothy Rice on Wednesday denied bail in a one-page memo because Breyer had failed to show special circumstances required of detainees facing extradition.

U.S. judge blocks New Hampshire law creating abortion clinic buffers

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 07/10/2014 - 23:04
(Reuters) - A federal judge has halted the enforcement of a New Hampshire law set to go into effect on Thursday that would have allowed abortion providers to set up 25-foot (7.6-meter) buffer zones around clinics. U.S. District Court Judge Joseph LaPlante issued the ruling late Wednesday granting an injunction sought by a conservative religious group, the Alliance Defending Freedom. The group sued the state trying to block implementation of the law, which it argued is unconstitutional in light of a U.S. Supreme Court ruling last month that struck down a similar buffer zone law in Massachusetts. "The plaintiffs persuasively argue that Senate Bill 319 is materially indistinguishable from the Massachusetts statute that the Supreme Court invalidated in McCullen," LaPlante wrote in his ruling, referring to the Massachusetts case.
