Question of the Day
Federal charges filed in massive wildfire
PHOENIX | Federal charges have been filed against two cousins accused of accidentally causing the largest forest fire in Arizona’s history by leaving a campfire unattended.
The U.S. attorney’s office on Wednesday announced the charges against Caleb Joshua Malboeuf, 26, of Benson and David Wayne Malboeuf, 24, of Tucson.
The U.S. Forest Service said its investigators determined the men were camping in the Apache Sitgreaves National Forest when the fire began there May 29. The agency said the two were out hiking when their campfire spread outside its fire ring in high winds.
The men each face five counts, including leaving a fire unattended and failing to maintain control of a fire that damaged a National Forest System.
Jury rules against penis amputation patient
SHELBYVILLE | A jury on Wednesday ruled against a Kentucky truck driver who sued his urologist claiming the doctor amputated part of his penis without his consent.
The six-man, six-woman jury deliberated briefly before coming back with the verdict in the lawsuit filed by Phillip Seaton, 64, and his wife, Deborah, in Shelby County Circuit Court.
The jury ruled unanimously against the claim that Dr. John Patterson of Frankfort failed to exercise proper care. It ruled 10-2 against the claim that Mr. Seaton hadn’t consented to the amputation.
Jurors were told that Mr. Seaton had gone to Dr. Patterson seeking a circumcision in 2007, but the doctor decided to amputate part of the organ after he found potentially deadly cancer during surgery.
Court bars sale of medical marijuana
DETROIT | Medical marijuana cannot be sold through private shops, the Michigan appeals court said Wednesday in a major decision that strikes at businesses trying to cash in on pot and cuts off a source for people with chronic ailments.
