Jury in defamation case by Jesse Ventura to reconvene next week

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 06:21

PETE ROSE JESSE VENTURA AND VINCE MCMAHON POSE.By Todd Melby ST PAUL Minn. (Reuters) - The jury in the defamation lawsuit brought by former Minnesota governor and pro wrestler Jesse Ventura will reconvene next week after it adjourned on Friday without reaching a verdict following four days of deliberations. The 10-person jury heard closing arguments at a federal court on Tuesday in a civil lawsuit involving Ventura and Chris Kyle, a deceased former Navy SEAL who wrote the bestselling book "American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History." Lawyers for Ventura said the ex-governor's reputation was sullied and his TV career left in shambles by claims made in the book about a bar fight between the two sparked by what Kyle said were disparaging comments about the Navy SEALs that he later attributed to the former politician.

By Ted Siefer CONWAY N.H.

Abigail Hernandez, 15, was reported missing in Conway on Oct. 9 after she didn't return home from high school, prompting a public campaign that drew national headlines.

U.S. appeals court backs Florida law in 'Docs v. Glocks' case

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 06:18
(Reuters) - A U.S. appeals court ruled on Friday in favor of a Florida law that bars doctors from asking patients about gun ownership, overturning a decision in the so-called "Docs v. Glocks" case by a lower court that had struck it down. Florida's Republican-led legislature passed the law after a north Florida couple complained that a doctor asked them if they had guns, and refused to see them after they declined to answer. A panel of the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, in a 2-1 vote, vacated the federal judge's ruling and described the law as a "legitimate regulation" of professional conduct that simply codified good medical care. Any restrictions it places on physicians' speech was entirely incidental, the appeals court said, since it "was intended to protect patient privacy and curtail abuses of the physician-patient relationship." Lawyers representing doctors and others had argued that the law violated healthcare providers' First Amendment rights by threatening them with heavy fines and the possibility of losing their license should they broach the subject.

Obama tells Central American leaders most children will go home

Yahoo! National News - Sat, 07/26/2014 - 06:00

U.S. President Obama disembarks from Air Force One as he arrives at Los Angeles International AirportBy Steve Holland and Jeff Mason WASHINGTON (Reuters) - President Barack Obama urged the leaders of three Central American countries on Friday to work with him to stem the flow of child migrants who have surged across the U.S. border and warned that most of them would not be allowed to stay. In a White House meeting with the leaders of Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, Obama had a tough-love message: his administration had compassion for the children, but not many would qualify for humanitarian relief or refugee status. The meeting came as Obama struggles to contain a border crisis triggered by the tens of thousands of children who have crossed the Texas border with Mexico in recent months.
