    The U.S. Supreme Court finished its term with big decisions on voting rights, affirmative action and same-sex marriage. Following those rulings, public approval of the court has fallen to the lowest level ever recorded in more than nine years of polling. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 28% believe the Supreme Court is doing a good or an excellent job. At the same time, 30% rate its performance as poor. That’s the highest-ever poor rating. It’s also the first time ever that the poor ratings have topped the positive assessments. Thirty-nine percent (39%) give the court...

Thursday afternoon, Andelman operated post mortem on a pit bull that had bitten a Bridgewater woman and swallowed parts of her face. The male pit bull was euthanized and operated upon following a request from the Boston hospital treating the 71-year-old woman, whose face was mauled by the...

Court artist's sketch of Omar Khyam Mohammed Babar, who has turned informant on his associates, said he was sitting on the couch in a flat in Lahore, Pakistan, when Khyam told him Britain "needed to be hit." Babar told the Old Bailey: "We were...
