Philadelphia Fed names Patrick Harker as Plosser's successor

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 02:46
The Philadelphia Federal Reserve on Monday named Patrick Harker, one of its directors and the head of the University of Delaware, as its president and the newest U.S. monetary policymaker. Harker, 56, begins the job July 1 and succeeds Charles Plosser, an outspoken and hawkish Fed official who retired on Sunday after more than eight years at the helm. Relatively unknown on the national economic scene, Harker sat on the Philadelphia Fed board's committee that conducted the search for a new president. A spokeswoman for the regional Fed bank said he recused himself from the process once he became a candidate, but did not give further details.

U.S. justices raise doubts about Arizona redistricting commission

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 02:34
By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday appeared skeptical of a voter-approved plan that stripped Arizona state lawmakers of their role in drawing congressional districts in an bid to remove partisan politics from the process. The nine-justice court's conservative majority, including regular swing vote Justice Anthony Kennedy, asked questions during a one-hour oral argument that indicated there could be a majority willing to find that the ballot initiative violated the U.S. Constitution's requirement that state legislatures set congressional district boundaries. The state's Republican-controlled legislature objected to a 2000 ballot initiative endorsed by Arizona voters that set up an independent commission to determine the U.S. House of Representatives districts.

Florida group to sue FBI in death of friend of Boston bombing suspect

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 02:21

Elena Teyer speaks to reporters following a pre-trial conference for Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev at the federal courthouse in BostonBy Barbara Liston ORLANDO, Fla. (Reuters) - A Florida Islamic group announced on Monday it has filed a formal notice with the FBI that it plans to sue the agency for $30 million in the death of Ibragim Todashev, a friend of one of the Boston Marathon bombing suspects. Todashev, 27, a Muslim Chechen immigrant, was killed in an Orlando apartment in May 2013 during FBI questioning about his links with the Boston suspects. The FBI said the agent shot Todashev after he attacked him. The notice was filed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida (CAIR-Florida), a civil rights group, on behalf of Todashev's parents who accused the FBI in a statement on Monday of killing their son "in cold blood." Thania Diaz Clevenger, civil rights director for CAIR Florida, said the group was "seeking answers and justice for someone who was shot seven times by an FBI agent in his own home after hours of interrogation." An FBI spokesman said Monday the agency does not comment on pending litigation.
