Arizona jury to resume deliberations in Jodi Arias death penalty case

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 00:40

Jodi Arias sits in the Maricopa County Superior Courtroom in PhoenixA jury in Phoenix is due to resume deliberating on Monday whether Jodi Arias should be put to death for murdering her ex-boyfriend in 2008, after a penalty phase retrial ended last week in the closely watched case. Arias, a 34-year-old former waitress from Salinas, California, was convicted of the murder in 2013, but jurors at the original trial deadlocked on whether she should be executed. A new jury was seated in October. The defense pleaded with jurors for Arias' life at closing arguments last week, saying she was remorseful, has had a long struggle with mental illness and was emotionally and physically abused as a child.

NYC rent-stabilized leases off-limits in bankruptcy: court

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 00:38
A U.S. appeals court ruled on Monday that an elderly Manhattan woman's rent-stabilized lease could not be seized and sold to satisfy her creditors after she filed for bankruptcy, a decision that could affect more than 2 million New Yorkers. The 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said Mary Santiago-Monteverde's lease, which she has had for more than four decades, qualified as a "local public assistance benefit" that state law places off-limits to bankruptcy creditors. Santiago-Monteverde, who is in her 80s and pays about $700 a month rent in the East Village, filed for bankruptcy in 2011 after her husband died because she could not pay off credit card debt, according to court papers. In November, the New York Court of Appeals, the state's top court, rejected claims by Santiago-Monteverde's bankruptcy trustee, John Pereira, that only cash payments from the government count as public assistance.

U.S. judge rules Nebraska same-sex marriage ban unconstitutional

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 03/03/2015 - 00:36
By Carson Vaughan LINCOLN, Neb. (Reuters) - A federal judge on Monday ruled Nebraska's ban on gay marriage unconstitutional in a decision that could allow same-sex couples to marry in the state within a week. U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon issued a preliminary injunction in the case brought by seven same-sex couples in the state, calling Nebraska's ban an "unabashedly gender-specific infringement of the equal rights of its citizens." Bataillon denied a state request to stay his decision but said his injunction would take effect on March 9 to assuage Nebraska officials' concerns of possible administrative turmoil. Nebraska state officials quickly appealed the ruling to the 8th Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals. "The definition of marriage is an issue for the people of Nebraska, and an activist judge should not substitute his personal political preferences for the will of the people," Governor Pete Ricketts said in a statement.
