For five years, a federal judge upset with the prosecution of a Florida professor once accused of being a leading terrorist has simply refused to rule on his case. It's left the government unable to deport him, unable to prosecute him, and flummoxed on how to move forward.
In a story March 25 about a legal battle over policies on Virginia's death row, The Associated Press erroneously reported the title of Rebecca Glenberg. She is legal director of the ACLU of Virginia, not its executive director. The story also mischaracterized the ACLU of Virginia. The ACLU of Virginia is an affiliate of the national American Civil Liberties Union, not a chapter.
A judge Friday questioned the viability of a prosecution against a man accused of conspiring to illegally build hundreds of untraceable rifle silencers on a no-bid contract, ostensibly for the Navy's elite SEAL Team 6.
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — The story began with one of those improbable tales of an artistic masterpiece uncovered at a flea market. It concluded Friday, the painting still a masterpiece but the story about the flea market all the more improbable.
ALEXANDRIA, Va. (AP) — A federal judge has ruled that Virginia cannot automatically hold prisoners convicted of capital murder on "death row," where the harsh conditions and solitary confinement amount to an unconstitutional denial of due process.
An ex-CIA agent pleaded not guilty Friday to illegally leaking classified documents about agency programs in Iran to a New York Times reporter.
In April 2009, U.S. District Judge Leonie Brinkema told lawyers she would rule “soon” on whether to dismiss a criminal contempt case against Sami Al-Arian, a longtime Palestinian activist.
She said she might order a new trial in another high-profile terror case - northern Virginia Islamic scholar Ali al-Timimi, convicted of soliciting treason for urging followers to join the Taliban after the Sept. 11 attacks.
