By Madeleine Thomas SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - An adult website that prosecutors say hooked up prostitutes with clients, under a thin disguise of offering strip club reviews, has been shut down and the website's two Northern California operators were arrested, federal authorities said on Thursday. Federal prosecutors said the two were arrested on Wednesday in connection with the operations of the website, myredbook.com. The myredbook.com website gained attention in May in connection with the death of a Sacramento woman whom police say was killed by her live-in boyfriend, a battalion chief for a California wildland fire agency. Myredbook.com claimed to offer “escort, massage, and strip club reviews,” but FBI agents found it also hosted advertisements for prostitutes with explicit photos, menus of sexual services and hourly and nightly rates, federal prosecutors said.

NEW YORK (AP) — A judge Thursday denied Argentina's request to extend deadlines to repay a $1.65 billion debt to U.S. hedge funds despite warnings by the country's leaders that making the payment could lead it into a catastrophic default.
A federal judge upheld gun laws on Thursday introduced by Colorado in the wake of deadly shooting rampages there and in Connecticut, dismissing a lawsuit filed by sheriffs, gun shops, outfitters and shooting ranges. U.S. District Chief Judge Marcia Krieger issued her ruling after a two-week civil trial in Denver. The measures signed into law by Governor John Hickenlooper in 2013 included banning ammunition magazines with more than 15 rounds. The measures, passed by Colorado's Democratic-controlled legislature with scant Republican support, also required background checks for all private gun sales and transfers.

By Letitia Stein TAMPA Fla. (Reuters) - Florida's Supreme Court threw out the death sentence of a man who spent almost 30 years in jail for the 1985 rape and murder of a woman found in a car trunk in the woods after new DNA evidence cast doubt on his guilt. Convicted for killing Vronzettie Cox from forensic evidence found at the time, Paul Hildwin was on Death Row for nearly three decades. "This is huge," said Martin McClain, his longtime attorney. "Of course, for Mr. Hildwin, there is nothing that can give him back those 30 years." McClain said he had not been able to tell Hildwin about the decision, but was scheduled to speak with him on Friday.

By Ellen Wulfhorst NEW YORK (Reuters) - An accused New York City gang member was found guilty of a slew of violent crimes, including three murders, on Thursday after a trial in which his boastful, graphic rap lyrics were used as evidence against him. A Brooklyn federal jury convicted Ronald "Ra Diggs" Herron, 32, of all 23 charges against him, from racketeering to drug trafficking to gang-related killings between 2001 and 2009, following the month-long trial. Prosecutors used Herron's "gangsta rap" videos - in which he boasts about belonging to the infamous Bloods street gang, firing weapons and dealing drugs - to argue the lyrics documented his crimes. The American Civil Liberties Union has said there are about 18 cases nationwide in which rap lyrics have been introduced to help convict defendants.

By Keith Coffman and Daniel Wallis DENVER (Reuters) - A left-leaning Colorado county defiantly issued marriage licenses to gay couples on Thursday, emboldened by a landmark decision by a regional appeals court that found in favor of same-sex marriage in neighboring Utah. The move appeared to set up a showdown between the elected clerk of Boulder County and Colorado's Republican attorney general, who warned that such nuptials would be invalid in the absence of a final judicial resolution. A panel of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit in Denver ruled on Wednesday that Utah cannot ban same-sex couples from marrying, pushing the issue of gay marriage a step nearer the U.S. Supreme Court.
