Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 06:18

A National Security Agency (NSA) data gathering facility is seen in Bluffdale, about 25 miles (40 kms) south of Salt Lake CityU.S. surveillance programs are making it more difficult for government officials to speak to the press anonymously, two rights groups said on Monday. Large-scale surveillance, on top of the Obama administration's crackdown on national security leaks, threatens the freedom of the press and the right to legal counsel, Human Rights Watch and the American Civil Liberties Union said in a joint report. The National Security Agency's surveillance programs, which include the collection of telephone "metadata," have heightened government officials' concerns about dealing with the media, as "any interaction - any email, any phone call - risks leaving a digital trace that could subsequently be used against them," the report said.

Colorado attorney general again seeks to halt gay marriage in Boulder

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 06:04
By Keith Coffman DENVER (Reuters) - Colorado's attorney general asked the state's highest court on Monday to order the Boulder County Clerk to stop giving out marriage licenses to gay couples, saying her actions must be governed by the current state of the law, court documents show. In the latest legal maneuver of his weeks-long tussle with Hillary Hall, the clerk of staunchly liberal Boulder County, Republican Attorney General John Suthers submitted the filing to the Colorado Supreme Court. Hall has issued nearly 200 licenses to gay couples since a Denver-based federal appeals court ruled late last month that a same-sex marriage ban in neighboring Utah was unconstitutional.  That ruling was subsequently stayed, and Suthers says Colorado's prohibition on same-sex nuptials remains in force. Last week the Colorado Court of Appeals likewise denied Suthers' request to tell her to cease, setting the stage for a review by the state's top court.

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/29/2014 - 05:51
A U.S. appeals court on Monday struck down Virginia's ban on same-sex marriage as unconstitutional, the latest in a string of court rulings across the country to back gay marriage. A panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, ruled 2-1 to affirm a February ruling by a federal judge who struck down the state ban as unconstitutional. Judges Roger Gregory and Henry Floyd wrote that barring gay couples from marrying violated rights to due process and equal protection under the U.S. Constitution's 14th Amendment. Fifty-seven percent of voters approved Virginia's constitutional ban on gay marriage in 2006.
