N.Y. top court decides towns can ban fracking

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 02:20
By Daniel Wiessner ALBANY N.Y. (Reuters) - New York state's top court ruled on Monday that towns have the authority to ban gas drilling within their borders, giving a boost to opponents of the drilling method known as fracking. The Court of Appeals in a 5-2 decision upheld drilling bans in the Ithaca suburb of Dryden and in Middlefield, near Cooperstown, saying the laws were extensions of the towns' zoning authority. Drilling company Norse Energy USA and an upstate dairy farmer separately sued the towns, claiming the bans violated a law designed to create uniform statewide regulations on the oil and gas industry.

U.S. top court turns away Arab Bank appeal

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 02:17
By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday left intact a lower court ruling against Jordan-based Arab Bank Plc for failing to supply documents in lawsuits accusing it of providing services to groups the United States brands as terrorist organizations. The court rejected Arab Bank's appeal of a U.S. federal judge's ruling. Plaintiffs accuse the bank of providing banking services to front groups for Hamas and other militant groups the United States has put on its list of terrorist organizations. Arab Bank said the judge's ruling was forcing it to choose between running afoul of the U.S. court and violating bank secrecy laws in Jordan, Lebanon and other countries.

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 07/01/2014 - 02:10

DETAINEE GESTURES TOWARD U.S. SOLDIER THROUGH BARS OF HIS CELL AT ABU GHRAIB PRISON OUTSIDE BAGHDAD.A federal appeals court has revived a lawsuit against CACI International Inc by four former Iraqi detainees who claimed the U.S. defense contractor's employees directed their torture at the Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad. The 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, said the claims had sufficient ties to the United States to be heard in U.S. courts. Writing for a unanimous three-judge 4th Circuit panel, Circuit Judge Barbara Milano Keenan also said Congress has a "distinct interest" in not turning the United States into a "safe harbor" for torturers. The lawsuit accused CACI employees who conducted interrogation and other services at Abu Ghraib of directing or encouraging torture, in part to "soften up" detainees for questioning, while managers were accused of covering it up.
