They say they can win a reparation lawsuit. But first they must figure out a few details: Whom to sue. On whose behalf. In what court. And on what legal theory. Nine top class-action and civil-rights lawyers--including men who have won huge settlements against the tobacco industry and the maker of the fen-phen diet drugs--have met several times over the last few months to plot strategy. They face several challenges. First, there's the statute of limitations. Slavery ended 135 years ago.

WASHINGTON — The hurdles aren't over for Tribune Co., which still must get regulatory approval before it can emerge from bankruptcy protection. Once the federal judge issues his final order confirming the company's reorganization plan, expected in days, the new owners must persuade the Federal Communications Commission to transfer the Chicago media company's 24 broadcast TV and radio station licenses to them. Because Tribune owns newspapers and broadcast stations in several markets, including Los Angeles, Chicago and South Florida, the FCC must grant waivers from its restrictions on ownership of multiple media outlets in the same city.

Years before he allegedly shot actress Lana Clarkson in the mouth, legendary music producer Phil Spector angrily declared that women "all deserve a bullet in their heads," a former security guard testified Monday. The testimony dealt a quick blow to Spector's defense on the day it was to resume its battle -- after a weeklong holiday break -- to clear Spector, 67, of the charge he murdered Clarkson, 40, in his Alhambra mansion on Feb. 3, 2003.

A Connecticut judge Tuesday ordered the release of recordings of 911 calls made the day of the Sandy Hook Elementary School massacre in Newtown, Conn., rejecting a state prosecutor's arguments that they should remain sealed to protect witnesses and the victims' families. Judge Eliot Prescott made his decision after listening to the tapes himself, and he gave the state's attorney for the Danbury region, Stephen Sedensky III, until Dec. 4 to comply. The ruling came a day after the state released a 48-page summary of the 11-month police investigation into Adam Lanza's rampage, which killed 20 first-graders and six school employees.

Seeing as I am, in fact, in the publishing industry, this struck me as pretty amazing. How did they know it was me? So I did the only thing I could think of. I clicked.
