U.S. Supreme Court revives pregnant worker’s case against UPS

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/26/2015 - 04:13
By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday sided with a former driver for UPS Inc by giving her another chance to argue that the package delivery company discriminated against her when it refused to lighten her work duties while she was pregnant. In a 6-3 decision, the justices revived Peggy Young's discrimination claim against the company by sending the case back to a lower court. A federal district court judge and an appeals court had earlier ruled in favor of UPS, which was backed by business groups in the case. "This is a big win for Peggy Young and other women in the workplace," said Sam Bagenstos, Young's lawyer.

Lindsey Radomski, 32, was taken into custody on Tuesday on suspicion of multiple counts of sexual conduct with a minor, sexual abuse, and indecent exposure following the incident last weekend at a home in the Phoenix suburb of Scottsdale. As many as 100 other guests were at the poolside party on Saturday when she allegedly exposed her breasts to five adults, and then again to a group of juveniles, said Sergeant Ben Hoster, a spokesman for the Scottsdale Police Department.

Ellen Pao leaves court as her sexual bias trial against fomer employer Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byerr continues in San FranciscoBy Jim Christie SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Jurors began deliberating on Wednesday on a high profile lawsuit brought by a former Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers partner who alleges she suffered gender discrimination and retaliation at the storied venture firm. The jury of six men and six women started their discussions shortly after attorneys for Kleiner and its former partner Ellen Pao wrapped up their closing arguments. In San Francisco Superior Court on Wednesday, Pao attorney Therese Lawless said Kleiner has engaged in "revisionist history" when it argues Pao's allegations are fueled by the desire for a large cash payout.

Colorado pot arrests plunge, but rate for blacks still higher: study

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/26/2015 - 04:00
By Daniel Wallis DENVER (Reuters) - The number of marijuana possession arrests in Colorado fell sharply after its first legal retail stores opened last year, but blacks still faced higher arrest rates than whites, a pro-pot group said on Wednesday. Colorado and Washington became the first U.S. states to legalize the recreational use of marijuana by adults in landmark ballots in 2012. Citing data from all 64 Colorado counties for two years before and two years after legalization, the Drug Policy Alliance said 2,036 marijuana charges were filed in the state's courts last year, down almost 95 percent from 38,878 in 2010. The advocacy group said that whites made up 90.4 percent of the population and accounted for 88.0 percent of pot possession arrests in 2014.

Boston bombing jury sees fuse, debris from suspect's apartment

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/26/2015 - 03:51

Dzhokhar Tsarnaev is pictured in this handout photo presented as evidence by the U.S. Attorney's Office in BostonBy Scott Malone BOSTON (Reuters) - The Boston Marathon bombing jury on Wednesday saw evidence including a fuse and a piece of a pressure-cooker lid seized at the apartment where accused bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev and his brother lived. A Federal Bureau of Investigation special agent described sorting through a debris-filled room that was "like a construction site" in the Tsarnaevs' cramped three-bedroom apartment in Cambridge, Massachusetts, just outside Boston, four days after the deadly bombing on April 15, 2013. There were tools in there, lots of debris," testified FBI Special Agent Christopher Derks, who led the apartment search. Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, 21, is accused of killing three people and injuring 264 with a pair of homemade pressure-cooker bombs packed with nails and BB pellets at the race's crowded finish line.
