Opening statements in Boston bombing trial delayed

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 01/22/2015 - 23:50

Courtroom sketch shows Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tsarnaev during the jury selection process in his trial at the federal courthouse in BostonOpening statements in the trial of Boston Marathon bombing suspect Dzhokhar Tsarnaev have been postponed as jury selection has taken longer than expected, meaning lawyers will not begin presenting cases Monday as planned, the court said on Thursday. The delay comes as Tsarnaev's attorneys launched a fresh effort to move the trial outside of Boston, arguing that it will be impossible to find an unbiased panel of jurors in the city where the attack took place. "It is not possible yet to specifically target a new start date," a spokeswoman for the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts said in a statement. Tsarnaev is accused of setting off twin pressure-cooker bombs at the finish line of the Boston Marathon in 2013, killing three people and injuring more than 260 in the worst such incident on U.S. soil since the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks.

U.S. solar product trade ruling opens way to import duties on China, Taiwan

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 01/22/2015 - 17:28

Vivint Solar technicians install solar panels on the roof of a house in Mission ViejoThe U.S. International Trade Commission said on Wednesday imports of solar products from China and Taiwan injure U.S. producers, clearing the final hurdle for import duties and prompting China to express "serious concerns". ITC commissioners voted in favor of the complaint brought by the U.S. arm of German solar manufacturer SolarWorld AG in a bid to close a loophole that let Chinese producers sidestep duties imposed in 2012. The decision gives the U.S. Commerce Department the green light to impose anti-dumping duties as high as 165.04 percent on Chinese goods and 19.5 percent on Taiwan goods. Separate anti-subsidy duties of up to 38.72 percent apply for Chinese goods.
