Yahoo! National News - Wed, 02/04/2015 - 03:33

Former New England Patriots player Aaron Hernandez attends his murder trial in Falls RiverBy Daniel Lovering FALL RIVER, Mass. (Reuters) - A Massachusetts judge on Tuesday removed a juror in the high-profile murder trial of former New England Patriots star Aaron Hernandez, saying the juror misled the court about attendance at Patriots games and expressed an opinion on the case. The juror, who was not identified, was a member of the panel of five men and 13 women hearing testimony in Hernandez's trial on charges relating to the 2013 death of Odin Lloyd, a semiprofessional football player who had been dating Hernandez's fiancée's sister. "There is credible evidence that the juror did talk about the case over the last few years, and that the juror expressed a specific opinion about the case," Associate Justice Susan Garsh said at Massachusetts Superior Court in Fall River. Hernandez, 25, has been accused of fatally shooting Lloyd near his home in North Attleborough, Massachusetts, in June 2013.

Same-sex couples poised to marry in Alabama after stay denied

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 02/04/2015 - 03:06
Same-sex weddings could begin in Alabama next week after a U.S. appeals court on Tuesday refused a request by the state's attorney general to delay gay marriages until the U.S. Supreme Court decides whether states can forbid them. The 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals denied Alabama Attorney General Luther Strange's motion for an extended stay in a brief order that clears the way for the conservative state to become the 37th in the United States to allow gay couples to wed. Strange said he was disappointed by the ruling and immediately filed a motion asking the U.S. Supreme Court to halt the decision by a federal judge that struck down Alabama's laws banning same-sex marriages last month. "The confusion that has been created by the District Court’s ruling could linger for months until the U.S. Supreme Court resolves this issue once and for all," Strange said in a statement.
