    Civil District Judge Kern Reese held New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu in contempt Friday (Sept. 4), but said he would give Landrieu one week to come up with a reasonable plan to pay an outstanding judgment due to the city's firefighters before imposing a house arrest sentence. Reese said he understood Landrieu was constrained by a tight budget, but that did not mean he had the right to shirk a legal judgment. "This is a legal issue," Reese said. "We all have responsibilities and those responsibilities have to be met." If Landrieu didn't have a payment plan in place by...

The six had used their cover of a legal...

    Egypt’s deposed autocrat Hosni Mubarak is expected to be freed from prison and placed under house arrest on Thursday after being ordered released the previous day, following more than two years in detention. The development is a new twist in the saga of the long-time president, toppled in Egypt’s popular uprising in 2011, and could potentially stoke tensions in the deeply divided nation. It could also amplify the anger against the military-backed government and Islamist allegations that last month’s military coup against Mubarak’s successor, Mohammed Morsi, was a step toward restoring the old regime. … In a statement, Tamarod warned...

    John "Junior" Gotti, who insists he quit the mob family run by his late father, the "Dapper Don," watched jury selection start yesterday at his racketeering retrial in Manhattan.

The most serious charge facing Gotti is the 1992 kidnapping of radio host Curtis Sliwa, the founder of the Guardian Angels crime-fighting group, who allegedly was targeted by "Junior" Gotti because of his on-air rants against the late John Gotti.

The probe began after the domestic diva attended Time magazine's gala Tuesday celebrating its 100 Most Influential People - including Stewart, authorities said. "We have some information that this event may not have been directly work-related, so we will be doing some investigating," said Chris Stanton, chief federal probation officer for the Southern District of New York.
