    Two decades ago, the Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein invited Ashley Judd to the Peninsula Beverly Hills hotel for what the young actress expected to be a business breakfast meeting. Instead, he had her sent up to his room, where he appeared in a bathrobe and asked if he could give her a massage or she could watch him shower, she recalled in an interview.

    Larry King was a gay eighth-grader who used to come to school in makeup, high heels and earrings. And when the other boys made fun of him, he would boldly tease them right back by flirting with them. That may have been what got him killed. On Feb. 12, another student, Brandon McInerney, 14, shot him twice in the head at the back of the computer lab at their junior high school, police say. The slaying of the 15-year-old boy has alarmed gay rights activists and led to demands that middle schools do more to educate youngsters about discrimination on...

    Lincoln Journal Star ^ | May 12, 2005 | staff and wire reports
    More than 1,000 women will be allowed to join a lawsuit alleging state officials did nothing to stop sexual assaults and other abuse of female patients at Nebraska's three mental health hospitals. U.S. District Judge Lyle Strom ruled Wednesday that the lawsuit filed on behalf of 16 female patients should be a class action, making it applicable to more than 1,000 women who have lived or now live at the centers in Lincoln, Hastings and Norfolk. As many as 100 of those women allegedly were raped and sexually assaulted, according to court documents. Officials at the attorney general's office said...

    WASHINGTON, Jan. 4 - Acknowledging serious flaws in how it has dealt with sexual assault within the military, the Pentagon announced steps today aimed at preventing such crimes, investigating them more thoroughly when they occur and treating victims with more consideration. Defense Department officials said that, from now on, there will be one set of definitions among all services, and at every base within each service, on what constitutes sexual assault. There will also be uniform procedures for dealing with possible victims and suspected offenders, the officials said. "The department understands that our traditional system does not afford sexual-assault victims...

    As Bill Clinton's library is unveiled at a gala opening this week, one thing is certain: His messy legacy will be on full display. One alcove will be dedicated to impeachment, and organizers have promised not to sidestep even Monica Lewinsky or Paula Jones. The 58-year-old political superstar is expected to draw hundreds of thousands of visitors a year to his library. "Bill Clinton is a rock star," said Skip Rutherford, head of Clinton's nonprofit foundation that built the $165 million library. "He is Elvis." The William J. Clinton Presidential Center, a metaphorical "bridge to the 21st century" cantilevered out...

    Some Christian employees of American Airlines think the company's anti-harassment policies – which include a warning not to place a Bible in a Muslim's cubicle – discriminate against them. The warning was included in a written reminder of the company's workplace policies. One of the examples of what might be "considered to be harassment under company policy" was: "Placing a Bible in a Muslim co-worker's cubicle, which could support a claim for harassment." One employee who contacted WND noted, "It makes no mention of a Quran being classified as offensive, the Bhagavad-Gita or any other religious book – EXCEPT the...

    Accused of raping five women in the Boulder and Lakewood areas, former Aspen real-estate agent and Snowmass snowboard instructor Bradford T.

    Even California first lady Sharon Davis wants to get into the act, diving into the Schwarzenegger accusathon Sunday night to detail her own humiliating groping experience while working as a mini-skirted flight attendant decades ago. "I worked for the airlines," Mrs. Davis told CNN's "Larry King." "In fact, I worked for PSA when we wore short little uniforms." "Because of the type of uniform we wore people felt like they could take liberties and it was humiliating and so I understand [why Arnold's accusers are upset]," she explained. Asked if male passengers had ever grabbed her, Mrs. Davis told King,...
