Attorneys with Liberty Counsel filed a writ of habeas corpus Monday demanding that Justina herself be brought before a judge in order to determine whether Judge Joseph Johnston was correct to award permanent custody of the girl to the Department of Children and Families (DCF). Monday’s court filing argues...

    SCOTTISH actor Sean Connery sued a California golf club today for breach of contract, saying its managers cheated him out of more than $US500,000 ($680,000). The former James Bond star joined the Sherwood Country Club of Thousand Oaks, a Los Angeles suburb, in 1990. According to the lawsuit, Connery, 75, considered the $US35,000 ($48,000) a year he was paying in dues an investment, and that he could recover 80 per cent of it after three years, while the club's owners capitalised on his fame to attract new investors. But the club refused to repay Connery when he cancelled his membership...

    France's top Muslim organisation is set to sue French newspapers that published cartoons of the Prophet Muhammad. The French Council of the Muslim Faith (CFCM), an umbrella organisation of Muslim groups, said on Friday it had taken the decision with the support of all its members after receiving lawyers' counsel.

    By far the most dramatic menace to this nation’s future and safety emanates from the cauldrons of Islamist extremism. But Americans are also in danger of losing their country on another front. A far larger incursion into the American homeland is being carried out via its southern border. Though an ongoing problem for many years, its instigators now apparently believe they are ready to take their attack to the next level. During a January 28 radio interview, Mexican Foreign Secretary Luis Ernesto Derbez has threatened the State of Arizona with legal action through the international courts in order to overturn...

    HELENA (AP) - A two-day recount of a Montana legislative race that will determine the balance of power in the state House resulted in a tie Tuesday, prompting an immediate legal challenge and sparking partisan allegations of wrongdoing. The tally of votes in House District 12 by Lake County officials showed Democrat Jeanne Windham of Polson and Constitution Party candidate Rick Jore of Ronan in a dead heat at 1,559 votes apiece. Initial results showed Jore with a two-vote lead. Windham, who contends five ballots were illegally counted for Jore, obtained a court order Tuesday that prohibits Secretary of State...

The Yankee Group went on to warn that many software vendors have a cap on liability coverage and urged IBM...
