After a trial that started in the spring, lasted through the summer and ended in the fall, one that entailed hundreds of exhibits and staggering legal bills, the Michael Jackson wrongful-death lawsuit finally went to the jury Thursday. What the case may come down to is whether jurors think that Jackson is to blame for his own demise by insisting on hiring the doctor who killed him, or that AEG Live executives were such poor witnesses that nothing they said can be believed. Jackson's mother and three children contend that AEG Live negligently hired and supervised Dr. Conrad Murray, the Las Vegas physician who gave the singer a fatal dose of the anesthetic propofol to combat his severe insomnia.

SAN FRANCISCO -- This is not the kind of word of mouth LinkedIn was looking for. Last week, four users filed suit against the professional networking service in San Jose federal court. They accused the company of accessing their email accounts without permission and harvesting the addresses of everyone they have ever emailed in order to send out unwanted invitations to join the service. The lawsuit, which is seeking unspecified damages, has seen an outpouring of public interest.

Internal emails obtained by The Times show Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission officials trying to come up with a strategy to limit public debate on its behind-the-scenes efforts to give USC control of the stadium. Peppered with profanities and name-calling, the emails were the subject of a recent court battle, in which the commission sought their return.

The Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum Commission unsuccessfully sought an emergency court order Friday demanding The Times and others surrender internal emails about its behind-the-scenes efforts to give USC control of the stadium. In the emails, commission officials discuss such topics as limiting public debate of a proposed USC lease of the taxpayer-owned Coliseum and excluding state officials from closed-door talks on the deal. The documents also show the panel's then-president and its top administrator tallying the commission's expected vote on the lease terms weeks before they were made public.

Several officials, including former Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Lisa P. Jackson, testified that they were following standard agency practices or had made errors based on a lack of training in records retention.

WASHINGTON - The National Security Agency improperly collected the emails of tens of thousands of Americans for three years before acknowledging the problem in 2011 and bringing it to the attention of the secret intelligence court, which ordered the program overhauled. Officials disclosed the history of that unlawful surveillance Wednesday, releasing three partially redacted opinions of the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court that detailed the judges' concerns about how the NSA had been siphoning data from the Internet in an effort to collect foreign intelligence.
