Prosecutors dropped charges Thursday against two men arrested at an alleged "swingers" sex club in a Porter Ranch home, saying they were not directly involved in the club's operation. Michael James Samson, 44, the bartender, and Andre Lebel, 61, the doorman, were "small-time characters," and charges against them were dismissed to speed up the court case, Deputy City Atty. Henry Burr said.

The 30-pound silver carp that leapt from the water last week and knocked a kayaker out of a 340-mile race down the Missouri River is a reminder of what's at stake Tuesday when the Asian carp debate returns to court in Chicago. Five Great Lakes states are suing the federal government to force closing of Chicago-area shipping locks as a last-ditch effort to keep the invasive species from entering Lake Michigan. The anticipated three-day legal showdown begins Tuesday in federal court as attorneys from Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Minnesota will try to convince U.S. District Judge Robert Dow that Asian carp pose such a grave threat to the Great Lakes that nothing short of an emergency shutdown of the system will stop them.
