Restaurant sues over ‘Carcass Removal’ listing
HELENA — A restaurant listed in the phone book under “Animal Carcass Removal” wound up as the butt of a Jay Leno joke earlier this year.
But it’s no laughing matter to the owner of Bar 3 Bar-B-Q in Bozeman and Belgrade.
The listing first appeared in Dex’s 2009 telephone book. It has been reprinted in several other directories, and Mr. Leno joked about the listing on the “Headlines” segment of “The Tonight Show” in January.
Dex says the restaurant assumed the risk of errors in the directory listing when it bought local telephone service.
Judge: Lawyers must get ID of man in Clementi case
NEW BRUNSWICK — A New Jersey judge ruled Friday that prosecutors must give defense lawyers the name of the man who was allegedly seen in a webcam video having an intimate encounter with Rutgers student Tyler Clementi.
Superior Court Judge Glenn Berman also ruled that no part of a 15-count indictment of Mr. Clementi’s former roommate, Dharun Ravi, will be dismissed. In doing so, he denied Mr. Ravi’s lawyer’s contention that prosecutors did not offer a grand jury earlier this year enough evidence about the alleged crimes.
Mr. Ravi is accused of the hate crime of bias intimidation, using a webcam to invade the privacy of the two men and trying to cover up it up afterward.
