Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 01:56
(Reuters) - A South Carolina man who shattered two leg bones during a company kickball game is entitled to workers' compensation benefits because he was required to attend the event as part of his job, the state's Supreme Court ruled on Wednesday. Stephen Whigham, who worked for a marketing and public relations firm, had attended meetings with managers who discussed the importance of team-building events, the court ruling said. On the last play of the game, Whigham shattered his tibia and fibula and was taken away in an ambulance. In their opinion, which reversed a lower court ruling denying the benefits claim, South Carolina justices cited testimony from Whigham's boss.

Thieves damage civil rights icon Rosa Parks’ former Alabama home

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 08/28/2014 - 01:29
By Verna Gates BIRMINGHAM Ala. (Reuters) - Alabama police are seeking help in catching thieves who ransacked a Montgomery apartment building where black civil rights activist Rosa Parks lived when she was famously arrested for refusing to give up her bus seat to a white man in 1955. The vandals damaged some items in Parks' onetime home, which serves as a small museum and is on the National Register of Historic Places, in their hunt for copper pipes and tubing, authorities said. Targeted or not, “it is a travesty that someone could disrespect the dignity and honor of Mrs. Parks by causing immeasurable damage to her home," said Montgomery Housing Authority Executive Director Evette Hester. Parks’ refusal to give up her bus seat sparked the Montgomery bus boycott, organized by the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and considered a key early development in the modern U.S.
