A judge has overturned a jury verdict that ordered Los Angeles Police Chief Daryl F. Gates and two of his top assistants to pay a total of $1.3 million to a former police captain who claims they violated his civil rights. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Richard Lavine ruled Thursday that there was no evidence to support Dennis Lunder's contention that he was punished for backing a City Council candidate opposed by Gates. The ruling came on the city's appeal of the jury verdict.

Before filming a massive battle on a freeway overpass in Cleveland, directors of Marvel Entertainment's recent release "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" didn't leave anything to chance.
