FILE - In this Nov. 19, 2013 file photo, Toyota Motor Corp. President Akio Toyoda delivers a speech during an event for the media ahead of the Tokyo Motor Show, a biannual exhibition of vehicles, in Tokyo. Toyota, headed to record profit, can afford the $1.2 billion fine levied by the U.S. government for hiding information about defects in its cars. If anything, the settlement may even deliver relief for Toyota shareholders and customers as a sign the automaker has put the four-year recall debacle behind it. Toyoda declined to comment directly Thursday, March 20, 2014 on the U.S. settlement, in which the Japanese automaker said it hid information about defects that had caused unintended acceleration in Toyota and Lexus vehicles, resulting injuries and deaths.

FILE - In this Monday, May 6, 2013, file photo, Vera Scroggins stands in front of a gas compressor station in Liberty Township in northwestern Pennsylvania. Scroggins, a high-profile anti-fracking activist who often gives tours of natural gas drilling sites in northeastern Pennsylvania's Marcellus Shale region, asked a judge Monday, March 24, 2014, for relief from an order barring her from stepping foot on more than 300 square miles of land owned or leased by one of the state's leading natural gas drillers. Scroggins said the injunction, in place since October, has effectively prevented her from traveling to her favorite grocery store, eye doctor, hospital, restaurants, businesses and friends' homes because all of them have leased land to Cabot Oil & Gas Corp.
