Notorious drug smuggling ship towed to Seattle for scrapping

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 07:45
By Victoria Cavaliere SEATTLE (Reuters) - A freighter seized off the coast of Washington state nearly four decades ago in one of the largest marijuana busts in the region's history was moved to Seattle on Thursday and will eventually be scrapped, local officials said. The Helena Star was towed from Tacoma to Seattle by state agencies and will be inspected and broken down over the next week, said Bob Redling of Washington's Department of Natural Resources. The drug smuggling ship made national headlines when it was seized by the Coast Guard in 1978 with 37 tons of marijuana on board. Helena Star's South American captain and eight crew members were arrested, and the flagless ship, en route to Canada, was docked in Seattle.

California inmates win class-action status in racial bias suit

Yahoo! National News - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 07:42
By Jennifer Baires SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - A ruling that granted class-action status to a lawsuit accusing California prison officials of racial discrimination for keeping inmates of the same ethnicity in cells during lockdowns brings all state prisoners into the suit, an attorney said on Thursday. The ruling on Wednesday by U.S. District Judge Troy L. Nunley marks the first time in the state a suit of this kind has been cleared for class-action status, and it covers all 125,000 of the state's inmates, said Don Specter, a lawyer with the Prison Law Office who is representing the plaintiffs. Robert Mitchel, an African American and the lead plaintiff in the case, filed a complaint in 2008 alleging he was repeatedly confined to his cell in High Desert State Prison, a facility in the northeast part of the state, after incidents involving other prisoners of the same race. “And often they have had nothing whatsoever to do with the events that precipitated the lockdowns." Lawyers for the inmates argue these lockdowns violate inmates' constitutional rights under clauses of the U.S. Constitution that ensure equal protection and prohibit cruel and unusual punishment.

Yahoo! Music News - Fri, 07/25/2014 - 07:28
By Jonathan Allen NEW YORK (Reuters) - New York's Metropolitan Opera said it will lock out its musicians and other unionized employees next week if a new contract agreement is not reached, in an escalation of a labor dispute that threatens to derail an entire opera season. Peter Gelb, the Met's general manager, wrote a letter to chorus members, orchestra players, stagehands and other employees on Wednesday saying they should prepare for a work stoppage if a new agreement is not reached when current contracts expire on July 31. The Met, which says it has an annual operating budget of over $300 million, has blamed a drop in its revenues since 2011 on dwindling audiences for opera worldwide.
