A Utah judge on Friday amended a controversial ruling that would have forced a married lesbian couple to relinquish custody of their infant foster daughter within a week, instead scheduling a Dec. 4 hearing on the issue, local media reported. The couple has cared for the nine-month-old girl since August, but on Tuesday the judge ordered state child welfare workers to remove the baby from the couple's home because of their sexual orientation and find new foster parents within seven days. According to the state Division of Child and Family Services (DCFS), which opposed the removal order, the judge cited unspecified research that he said showed children were better off with heterosexual parents.

Pennsylvania court reinstates Sandusky's $4,900 monthly pension

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 11/14/2015 - 02:45

Convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky, a former assistant football coach at Penn State University, leaves after his appeal hearing at the Centre County Courthouse in Bellefonte, PennsylvaniaA Pennsylvania court on Friday reinstated Jerry Sandusky's pension, ruling that a state board had improperly stripped payments to the former Penn State assistant football coach after his 2012 conviction for sexually abusing boys. The State Employees Retirement System (SERS) wrongly denied Sandusky and his wife his $4,900-a-month pension in October 2012, the court ruled, saying he was entitled to the money in part because he had already retired as assistant to legendary head coach Joe Paterno at the time of the crimes. A panel of judges on the Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court retroactively reinstated the pension with interest to the date the SERS board canceled payments.
