By Tom Hals WILMINGTON, Delaware (Reuters) - A judge who found what he called a "startling pattern" of abuse by plaintiffs' lawyers may have shifted the landscape of asbestos litigation with a ruling in favor of manufacturers. In a decree last month, Judge George Hodges said the lawyers had manipulated evidence to get bigger settlements from Garlock Sealing Technologies, a bankrupt maker of asbestos gaskets. Plaintiffs' lawyers say Hodges, a U.S. bankruptcy judge in Charlotte, North Carolina, ignored precedents built up over years of asbestos litigation. Already, they have already cited it in at least three other cases in which they are fighting asbestos claims.

By David Beasley ATLANTA (Reuters) - A deadly winter storm potentially more destructive than the one that paralyzed Atlanta just two weeks ago gripped the southern United States on Wednesday, crippling travel, knocking out power to more than 330,000 customers and encasing magnolia trees and palmetto fronds in ice. The weather was blamed for at least 10 deaths throughout the region, including three who were killed when an ambulance transporting a patient skidded off an icy road in Carlsbad, Texas, about 240 miles southwest of Dallas, the Texas Department of Public Safety said on Wednesday. Road conditions quickly deteriorated in South Carolina and North Carolina on Wednesday afternoon, creating a nightmarish commute for drivers in a hurry to get home as the snowfall got heavier and the ice thickened. Traffic in many places came to a standstill, vehicles skidded off slippery roads and emergency officials urged drivers not to abandon their vehicles, a scenario reminiscent of the messy commute during the storm in Atlanta last month.

By P.J. Huffstutter CHICAGO (Reuters) - Kroger Co, the biggest U.S. supermarket operator, faces a lawsuit claiming it deceived consumers by marketing a store brand as humanely raised chicken products when the animals were raised under standard commercial farming. The complaint, filed late on Tuesday in Superior Court of California in Los Angeles County, is seeking class-action status against Kroger for allegedly misleading California consumers with claims about the grocer's "Simple Truth" premium-priced store brand of chicken. Kroger spokesman Keith Dailey told Reuters on Wednesday that the company has not had an opportunity to review the lawsuit. However, Dailey said: "What we have on our Simple Truth chicken label is information for our customers that we believe is accurate, and we intend to vigorously defend our label." The "Simple Truth" chicken products were packaged with labeling that stated the animals were raised "in a humane environment" and "cage free," according to the lawsuit.
