    Family Radio has solicited millions from donors over the years and reportedly spent over $100 million on advertising for the May 21 Judgment Day. But now that the "guaranteed" rapture didn't happen, people are wondering: Can Harold Camping or Family Radio be sued? Did they do anything illegal in soliciting donations based on the rapture prediction? And do donors have legal ground to sue the discredited prophet? Probably not, says an executive of Charity Navigator, which evaluates over 5,500 of America's largest charities. The charity evaluator rated Family Radio as a 4-star charity, the highest possible ranking. Sandra Miniutti, vice...

    If there is one thing we should all be able to agree about health care it's this — health care is an enormously complicated issue.

Right now in Las Vegas, you can see for yourself one of those drivers — out of control liability lawsuits. A lawyer for a Henderson man infected with hepatitis...

    A Churchill By Any Other Name By Robin Mullins Boyd February 9, 2005 Ward Churchill shares his surname with one of the pre-eminent figures in world political history, Winston Churchill. That is where the similarities end. The media has been in an uproar since Ward Churchill was "disinvited" to speak at Hamilton College in NY. The invitation was retracted after the public was made aware of the professor's anti-American screed about the September 11 tragedy. The University of Colorado has since started proceedings to evaluate whether Churchill should continue in his tenured position at the university. The uproar centered on...

    Ward Churchill, the University of Colorado professor who prompted a national furor by condemning 9-11 victims as "little Eichmanns" and praising the terrorists for their "gallant sacrifices," went to federal court today to challenge the school's cancellation of a speech he was scheduled to give tonight. On Monday, CU administrators announced they had canceled Churchill's planned speech because of security concerns, reported the Denver Post. Earlier this month, Hamilton College in upstate New York canceled a speech by Churchill because of death threats against the professor and its administrators. Regardless of what the judge decides, students of Churchill, an ethnics...
