    (CN) - The Pennsylvania Supreme Court suspended Justice Seamus McCaffrey on Monday amid allegations that he sent or received hundreds of pornographic emails over a four-year period. In its order, the court cited a "compelling and immediate need to protect and preserve" the integrity of state's courts. Although McCaffrey has been suspended, with pay, on only an "interim basis," the justices also ordered the state's Judicial Conduct Board to determine within 30 days if there is probably cause to file formal judicial misconduct charges against the 64-year-old judge. According to published reports, the emails, which evidently were exchanged with members...

This results in divorce. But if the excuse was a tall tale, the joke's on the ex-wife, because a court in Dubai ruled that she is not entitled to alimony, reports Gulf News. Reason?...

The gushing beer smashed open the brewery's other vats, resulting in a raging sea of beer that burst forth from the building.Over one...
