U.S. top court throws out Los Angeles ordinance giving police access to hotel records

Yahoo! National News - Tue, 06/23/2015 - 00:36
The U.S. Supreme Court ruled on Monday that a Los Angeles ordinance that lets police view hotel guest registries without a warrant violates the privacy rights of business owners, taking away what the city called a vital tool to fight prostitution and other crimes. In a 5-4 decision, the justices upheld an appeals court ruling that struck down the ordinance, saying it infringed upon hotel operators' rights under the U.S. Constitution's Fourth Amendment protections against unlawful searches and seizures. Los Angeles appealed after the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals struck down the ordinance in December 2013.

By Zachary Fagenson MIAMI (Reuters) - A grandson of famed evangelist Billy Graham resigned his post atop a prominent south Florida church after admitting to "moral failure," according to a statement from Coral Ridge Presbyterian Church. A statement on the church's website said that several days ago Tullian Tchividjian, 42, had acknowledged that "his actions disqualify him from continuing to serve as senior pastor or preach from the pulpit, and resigned – effective immediately."

In a statement to the Washington Post, Tchividjian said his problems began after returning from a trip and learning his wife was having an affair.
