U.S. Appeals Court OKs Tossing Strict North Dakota Abortion Law

NS aborrtion ban overturned by courtA federal appeals court affirmed a ruling Wednesday that struck down one of the most restrictive anti-abortion laws in the country: a North Dakota law that bans abortions when a fetal heartbeat can be detected, which can be as early as six weeks into a pregnancy.

The 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals agreed with a decision last year from U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland, who ruled the law unconstitutional. The law was approved by the Republican-dominated Legislature in 2013, though it was quickly put on hold after the state's lone abortion clinic filed a lawsuit that July.

Arrests in Florida, Israel potentially linked to JPMorgan Chase hack

JPMorgan hackers arrestedFederal authorities Tuesday arrested four men in Florida and Israel over fraudulent investment charges involving the 2014 hack of JPMorgan Chase.

JPMorgan Chase was hacked in July 2014, when the contact information of 83 million customers was compromised.

What do highways have to do with Planned Parenthood and Obamacare?

Highway billMitch McConnell is eyeing a major breakthrough on a multiyear highway bill that many in Congress doubted could be done. But his colleagues vying for the presidency see something else: one last chance to steal the spotlight on the Senate floor before the first GOP debate in August.

Clumped together in the single digits in recent national polls, GOP Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky, Marco Rubio of Florida, Ted Cruz of Texas and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina sense an opportunity to get some much-needed traction in the must-pass legislation. And they’re seizing it, with plans to tack on controversial proposals — or potentially hold up the entire bill if they don’t get what they want.
