“The kid had what appeared to be swollen glands,” he said. “This was not a tumor that was getting bigger. It would come and go. He would have his good days, he would have his bad days.”
According to Mr. Luskin, the parents had financial problems and once tried to get checkups for their children but couldn’t afford that.
Amish men won’t budge on buggy fight
MAYFIELD — A group of conservative Amish men in western Kentucky have become scofflaws in their protest against a state law requiring orange safety triangles on their horse-drawn buggies.
Nine members of the Swartzentruber order in rural Graves County have refused to pay fines for not using the triangles, and eight of them have spent time in jail.
The men believe that the orange triangle is garish and violates their faith’s orders to live simple, plain lives. They prefer using gray reflective tape and lanterns to make their buggies visible to motorists.
Kentucky state officials say the orange triangles are the best way to make sure buggies are visible for the safety of everyone on the road.
Man suing Facebook fined $5,000 by court
BUFFALO — A man who is suing for part ownership of Facebook has been fined $5,000 for failing to comply fully with a court order to give experts access to his email accounts.
Paul Ceglia also was ordered to pay Facebook’s court costs in trying to obtain the material, which Facebook said would help expose Mr. Ceglia’s case as a fraud.
U.S. Magistrate Judge Leslie G. Foschio said Mr. Ceglia had delayed the case by failing to produce his email addresses and passwords dating to 2003 while his lawyers unsuccessfully challenged the August order as an invasion of privacy.
“For whatever reasons, plaintiff, fully advised by his lawyers not to do so, chose to knowingly ignore the unambiguous orders of the court,” Judge Foschio wrote late Tuesday.
The fine is “designed to coerce plaintiff’s future compliance with all court orders in this case,” he said.
