Small businesses will get some continued tax breaks under the proposed budget that President Obama is planning to submit this month, the White House said. Also unveiled was a private-public initiative, led by AOL co-founder Steve Case, to help find funding for and otherwise support small business.

Company directors unhappy with AOL Time Warner Inc. Chairman Stephen M. Case appear to lack the support needed to oust him at Thursday's regularly scheduled board meeting, people close to several directors said Tuesday. Vice Chairman Ted Turner, the largest individual shareholder and thus the biggest loser in AOL Time Warner's ongoing stock slide, has indicated he would support removing Case but does not plan to spearhead such an effort, one source close to him said.

Now he tells us. Six years after arranging the ill-fated marriage between America Online and Time Warner Inc., Steve Case on Monday admitted he was wrong and echoed investor Carl Icahn's call to break up the company. "Obviously I was a big believer in convergence and a big believer in cross-divisional collaboration to drive innovation and growth," the AOL co-founder said in a chat Monday on Washingtonpost.com, a day after the Post published an essay he wrote favoring a corporate split.

A federal judge in New York has ruled that former America Online Chairman Steve Case must defend himself against civil allegations that he knowingly misrepresented the Internet firm's advertising revenue before the company's merger with Time Warner Inc. in 2000. In May, U.S. District Judge Shirley Wohl Kram ruled that there was insufficient basis for allegations that Case intentionally tried to mislead investors to boost the company's stock price. But this week, the judge reversed that opinion after the Minnesota State Board of Investment, the lead shareholder plaintiff in the case, filed an amended complaint with more information.

Steve Case began AOL Time Warner's board meeting Thursday as chairman, and he still was chairman when the all-day meeting ended. Despite pressure from some major shareholders to oust Case and some anti-Case sentiment on the board itself, the 44-year-old chairman's job status was not on the agenda and was not even discussed, company spokesman Edward Adler said Thursday evening. "Steve Case is chairman and is going to remain so. The board conducted regular business today," Adler said.

In two decades Steve Case has skyrocketed from Pizza Hut manager to Internet promoter and now finds himself one of the nation's top media moguls, after engineering the biggest blockbuster corporate merger proposal in history. Case, 41, hardly fits the typical flamboyant profile of a media kingpin. Yet that's just the perch Case would assume as his No. 1 Internet company, America Online Inc., prepares to acquire Time Warner Inc. for a stunning $163.4 billion in AOL stock.

Stephen R. Kay, head deputy for L.A. County's district attorney office in Compton, has prosecuted murder cases for more than 35 years, and he says Steve Hodel has enough facts to convict his father, the late Dr. George Hodel, for at least two murders. But it wasn't easy for Kay--speaking for himself and not the D.A.'s office--to write a six-page letter to Hodel endorsing his case.
