Mission accomplished! Afghan Opium Output Surges 12 Oct 2011 Opium production surged 61% this year in Afghanistan, the United Nations reported. The farm-gate value of this year's harvest more than doubled to $1.4 billion, the U.N. said.

UW Professors: Accused Anthrax Killer Couldn't Have Done It 07 Oct 2011 Colleagues of accused anthrax killer Bruce Ivins say evidence from the laboratory clearly demonstrates that Ivins could not have committed the crime. "The scientific evidence clearly shows that the (anthrax) wasn't produced in our laboratory (USAMRIID)," the two UW professors [Jeffrey J. Adamovicz and Gerry Andrews] say. "The FBI based part of its case on unusual activity that took place in our lab for one week. There is no way he could produce that amount of spores in our lab during that time." Other independent laboratories couldn't produce anthrax under similar lab conditions, and the FBI could not recreate the attack strain, Adamovicz says.

Calif. Governor Veto Allows Warrantless Cellphone Searches

October 11, 2011 by legitgov

Calif. Governor Veto Allows Warrantless Cellphone Searches 10 Oct 2011 California Gov. Jerry Brown (D) is vetoing legislation requiring police to obtain a court warrant to search the mobile phones of suspects at the time of any arrest. The Sunday veto means that when police arrest anybody in the Golden State, they may search that person's mobile phone -- which in the digital age likely means the contents of persons' e-mail, call records, text messages, photos, banking activity, cloud-storage services, and even where the phone has traveled. Brown's veto also shores up support with police unions and the Peace Officers Research Association of California, a police union that opposed the legislation and recently donated $38,900 to Brown's campaign coffers.

KBR Dodges Lawsuit by Electrocuted Marine 10 Oct 2011 A Marine who was electrocuted while trying to install a wiring box at the military base near Fallujah, Iraq, cannot pursue negligence claims against defense contractor Kellogg Brown & Root, the 4th Circuit ruled. Peter Taylor had sought relief from the appellate court after a federal judge dismissed the claim in April 2010. Senior U.S. District Judge Robert Doumar had agreed with KBR that Taylor lacked subject-matter jurisdiction since the political question doctrine bars negligence claims. Doumar also found that the "combat activities" exemption of the Federal Tort Claims Act pre-empts the suit.

Data show Texas voters could be barred under new ID law 08 Oct 2011 As many as a quarter of voters in some small Texas counties might not be able to cast ballots if the federal government allows the new state voter ID law to go into effect. The impact of the law was gleaned from several pages of data that the Texas secretary of state's office provided to the U.S. Department of Justice, which is reviewing the law to determine whether it illegally hurts minority voters. The data show that in 27 of Texas's 254 counties, at least 10 percent of the registered voters might be unable to cast ballots, if Senate Bill 14 by Sen. Troy Fraser, R-Horseshoe Bay, takes effect. "Republicans are using cheap tricks to steal elections," said Rebecca Acuña, spokeswoman for the Texas Democratic Party.
