By Mary Wisniewski CHICAGO (Reuters) - A federal judge on Thursday sentenced a former Illinois state lawmaker to eight years in prison for sending child pornography through office computers, rejecting a request that the critically ill man be allowed to die at home. Former Democratic Illinois State Representative Keith Farnham, 67, of Elgin, has pulmonary fibrosis and is expected to have only a few months to live, according to court documents. U.S. District Judge Edmond Chang rejected a defense request that Farnham be allowed to remain on electronic home detention for six months to give him the chance to die at home. Farnham resigned his seat in the Illinois General Assembly last March, less than a week after federal agents seized his computers.

Texas sues to block family medical leave for same-sex married couples

Yahoo! National News - Thu, 03/19/2015 - 22:51
The state of Texas sued the U.S. Labor Department over a rule that would grant family medical leave protections to all married same-sex couples, saying it violates the rights of states that don't recognize gay marriage. The lawsuit filed on Wednesday in federal court in Wichita Falls, Texas is the first challenge to the department's rule, which is set to take effect on March 27. President Barack Obama last year first announced the so-called "place of celebration" rule in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court's decision in June 2013 in United States v. Windsor, which said the Defense of Marriage Act, the federal law that defined marriage as a heterosexual union, was unconstitutional.
