Nebraska court ruling on Keystone XL pipeline not expected until 2015

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/12/2014 - 05:26
The Nebraska Supreme Court will soon hear arguments in a dispute over the planned route for the Keystone XL pipeline but a court ruling on the controversial project is likely to be delayed until the new year, lawyers and activists say. The court has scheduled oral arguments for Sept. 5 in Lincoln over the proposed path of the 1,200-mile (1,900-km) pipeline from Canada to Texas. Although it will be a talking point in several Congressional races, Keystone's fate is likely to remain in limbo during the Nov. 5 U.S. mid-term elections. "These things typically take three to six months," said Jane Kleeb, of the group Bold Nebraska, which has helped galvanize landowner opposition to the pipeline.

Judge OKs access to trailer for defense lawyers in N.H. kidnap case

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 08/12/2014 - 05:19
By Ted Siefer MANCHESTER N.H. (Reuters) - A judge has ordered that attorneys for the man accused of kidnapping a New Hampshire teenager who mysteriously reappeared last month must be given greater access to his mobile home and a nearby shipping container. Nathaniel Kibby, 34, was charged last month with kidnapping Abigail Hernandez, 15, on Oct. 9, 2013, in the town of Conway, a scenic tourist area popular with skiers. Authorities and the family have shared little information about the circumstances of Hernandez's disappearance or return, and Kibby's arrest late last month has not shed much light on lingering questions. They had sought to remove the trailer and an adjacent metal shipping container he owns from the trailer park, citing the need to preserve evidence in the high-profile case.
