Ruling in a Los Angeles police shooting, a federal appeals court refused to disqualify a judge who called a family's lawyers boobs and jailed one of them. However, the court did grant a new trial to the victim's family. U.S. District Judge A. Andrew Hauk showed a lack of respect for the lawyers and engaged in "some injudicious behavior," but did not show bias or an inability to preside over a retrial of the civil suit, the U.S. 9th Circuit Court of Appeals said Tuesday.

Under that statute, only the state is allowed to regulate medical procedures, and "the evidence presented is overwhelmingly persuasive that circumcision is a widely practiced medical procedure," the ruling said.
