Question of the Day
Police: Kidnap victim, truck located
LOS ANGELES | Authorities say they have found a pharmaceutical delivery man and his stolen truck after he was kidnapped by men impersonating police officers.
Los Angeles police Sgt. Mitzi Grasso said Thursday the delivery man was uninjured. She says investigators were talking to him but hadn’t had a chance to search the truck.
The kidnapping took place at a pharmacy in the San Fernando Valley.
The delivery driver was dropped off on a nearby street corner, and the truck was found in a liquor store parking lot.
Sgt. Grasso says investigators are looking for two men believed to be impersonating police officers.
She says weapons were involved in the abduction, but she didn’t have details.
Lawyers compete for big payday
MIAMI | More than 100 lawyers are battling for the biggest chunks of what is likely to be a multibillion-dollar settlement for Gulf of Mexico oil spill victims, jockeying for spots on the elite team that will control the plaintiffs’ cases.
A judge will pick 12 to 15 lawyers to take the lead in lawsuits against BP PLC and other companies. The team could get up to 15 percent of a settlement in the more than 300 suits that have been consolidated in New Orleans federal court. That’s on top of the typical 30 percent fee lawyers charge their individual clients.
Competition is fierce: Candidates include a former Cabinet secretary and the lawyer who represented Al Gore in the 2000 presidential recount case.
