When James Monahan met with people who were considering investing in the Panam Management Group, he repeatedly touted his prior service with the NYPD as proof of his trustworthiness, Preet Bharara, U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, said in a news release.

Ronald G. Avers was charged on Thursday with seven violations of a federal law against tampering with packaged meat, according to court documents. Six customers and one employee at the Shop'n Save grocery in Belleville, Illinois in suburban St. Louis reported finding needles in hamburger, roast or steak products between May 2013 and July 14 of this year, according to an FBI affidavit filed in federal court.

U.S. asks appeals court to reconsider Obamacare subsidies ruling

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 08/02/2014 - 01:35

Juan Ortiz, 67, and his eighteen-month-old grandson Joshua Lopez wait in line at a health insurance enrollment event in CommerceBy Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Justice Department asked a federal appeals court on Friday to reconsider its July 22 ruling that poses a major setback to the Obamacare health insurance overhaul as it could limit the availability of federal health insurance subsidies for millions of people. In the ruling last month, the appeals court said the subsidies, which help people afford health insurance, may only be paid in states that have their own online health insurance exchanges. Five million people could be affected, analysts have estimated, if subsidies were to disappear from the federally created marketplaces that have been set up in the states that did not set up their own exchanges. Government lawyers wrote in the court filing that the July decision, if left intact, would "impose a severe hardship" on people who currently get the subsidies in the form of tax credits.
