The long-delayed Expo Line was recently dealt another setback when authorities revoked a permit that allowed construction 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Authorities said they revoked the permit last week because of complaints about noise during late-night construction on the line. The move could further delay construction, which is already more than a year behind schedule, and add to the $862-million price tag to complete the first segment from downtown Los Angeles to Culver City.

Two Texas doctors who had been performing abortions for more than three decades lost their legal ability to do so at the end of March when their new hospital revoked their privileges. This week, a judge temporarily reinstated their positions. But the doctors face an April 30 court hearing to see if that temporary order will remain in place. The abortion case, like many others in Texas at the moment, was sparked by legislation passed last year that placed significant limits on who can perform abortions and where.

Additionally, the business had been cited twice for violating its conditional use permit by selling alcohol without a license.  "This is a long time coming," said LAPD Capt.

Some 200 Venezuelans gathered outside a Caracas radio station to protest a decision by President Hugo Chavez's government to revoke 34 broadcast licenses. The demonstration was held outside CNB 102.3 FM, which cut its over-the-air transmission on orders from the telecommunications regulatory agency and is now transmitting only over the Internet. Station director Zaira Belfort said CNB planned to appeal the order, but she said that the shutdown was probably "only the beginning of the closures of free media in Venezuela."

The painting of Mao Tse-tung as a Renaissance saint was too risky for the Shanghai 2000 Biennial. The photo of a man eating a dead baby was too disturbing. The works, rejected by the Shanghai Art Museum's official contemporary art show, went on display at private galleries. That's when police raided a gallery and seized the exhibits. The two-month Biennial, with 67 artists from 15 countries, is China's bid to join the club of biannual art extravaganzas led by Venice and New York City.

MEXICO CITY -- Seven CNN journalists had their credentials revoked or denied in Venezuela after President Nicolas Maduro called them "fascists" and criticized their coverage of antigovernment protests there, the network reported Friday. CNN posted a story about the expulsion order Friday afternoon on its website. The network said that the journalists, who worked for CNN International and CNN en Espanol, were told their media credentials were being revoked or denied. The move came hours after a Maduro speech Thursday in which he criticized the network, saying it was failing to focus on good news beyond the street protests that have engulfed the nation for days.

First the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences disqualified a song. Now it could be facing the music. For the first time in its history, the academy this week revoked an Oscar nomination on ethical grounds, citing improper campaigning by the composer of "Alone Yet Not Alone," which would have been one of the five contenders for original song at this year's Oscars. But the action has prompted criticism that the academy has cracked down on a small movie that can't compete with big-budget Oscar campaigns mounted by studios.

It was always a long shot. Now, an Oscar nominee for best original song has no shot at all. In a startling turn, the Motion Picture Academy has revoked the nomination of "Alone Yet Not Alone," the song from a faith-based movie of the same name, citing improper actions by one of the songwriters. Bruce Broughton, who penned the song's music, also serves on the executive committee of the academy's music branch, whose members vote on the song nominations. The academy said Broughton improperly emailed members of the branch during the voting period, urging them to listen to "Alone Yet Not Alone.

A Burbank pharmacy that dispensed painkillers and other narcotics to five young patients who later died of overdoses had its license revoked Monday after the state pharmacy board found that its employees failed to properly scrutinize prescriptions that contributed to patient deaths. The pharmacy, Jay Scott Drugs on Glenoaks Boulevard, catered to patients of doctors Bernard Bass and Massoud Bamdad, both of whom were later convicted of crimes in connection with their prescribing. Pharmacists are required by law to scrutinize prescriptions, size up customers and refuse to dispense a drug if they suspect a patient does not have a legitimate medical need for it. Many of Bass' patients were in their 20s and traveled more than 40 miles from their homes in Ventura County to see Bass in North Hollywood, and then another five miles to Jay Scott Drugs where they typically paid cash for a combination of prescription drugs favored by addicts.

Among those party members whose awards were revoked are Baldur von Schirach, the Vienna governor from 1940 to 1945; Arthur Seyss-Inquart, an Adolf Hitler cabinet minister; and SS leader Albert Reitter.

Chris Brown's probation has been revoked again after the singer briefly appeared in court Monday for a progress hearing related to his 2009 conviction in an assault of then-girlfriend Rihanna. The move stems from the R&B singer's October arrest in Washington and subsequent misdemeanor assault charge following an altercation in which Brown was accused of hitting a man trying to take a picture of him outside the W Hotel. (Brown is scheduled to appear in D.C. court in connection with the case on Jan. 8.)

A Torrance gynecologist faces a disciplinary hearing because he allegedly used a sexually stimulating massage to treat a woman's ovarian cysts. An accusation filed by the state attorney general's office against Hector H. Arnazzi, 40, charges the doctor with gross negligence for using "a method which more closely resembled simulated sexual intercourse than any type of ovarian massage." John Rhode, an attorney for Arnazzi, said his client "flatly denies" any sexual misconduct.

A professor of psychology was taken into custody Thursday after her bail was revoked in an 18-year-old case in which she is accused of helping set up the slaying of a man she said raped her when she was a college sophomore. Norma Patricia Esparza, 39, was taken from an Orange County courtroom in handcuffs after being allowed to briefly hug her husband. Prosecutors say Esparza, a Pomona College student at the time, and a group that included her ex-boyfriend went to a Santa Ana bar in April 1995 so she could point out her alleged rapist.
