The $150-million flight was set to end after four days in orbit with a landing at 5:28 a.m. PST today at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

Charles D. McKinley had himself shipped from New York to Dallas in an airline cargo crate, startling his parents -- and a deliveryman -- when he broke out of the box outside their home. "My husband asked him, 'Man, what are you doing in this crate?' He said he was coming home," his mother told a Dallas television station. Federal officials want to know how the stowaway bypassed airport security.

Attorneys for Bryan Stow on Monday rejected the Dodgers' proposed resolution to his bankruptcy claim, setting the stage for U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross to decide whether to hear the Stow matter in his court or simply defer to civil court in Los Angeles. A hearing on the issue is set Wednesday. Stow is the San Francisco Giants fan beaten and critically injured in the Dodger Stadium parking lot on opening day last year. His attorneys have said he will need lifelong medical care and cited $50 million as a "conservative total estimate" of his damages.

U.S. Bankruptcy Judge Kevin Gross on Wednesday urged attorneys for Bryan Stow and the Dodgers to settle their dispute without his intervention. Stow's attorneys had asked Gross to yield to a California court. Gross postponed a decision until March 21, when he is scheduled to hear the Dodgers' request that he throw out Stow's bankruptcy claim. However, after two hours of arguments in U.S. Bankruptcy Court in Wilmington, Del., Gross strongly encouraged both sides to resume settlement discussions.

The Dodgers late Thursday proposed a compromise that would let attorneys for Bryan Stow proceed with their litigation against the team. Stow is the San Francisco Giants fan beaten and critically injured in the Dodger Stadium parking lot last year. His attorneys have said he will need lifelong medical care and cited $50 million as a "conservative total estimate" of his damages. Stow's attorneys filed a civil suit against the Dodgers in Los Angeles Superior Court and a subsequent claim against the team in U.S. Bankruptcy Court.

The Dodgers face long odds in trying to get Bryan Stow's claim dismissed in U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Judge Kevin Gross said during a hearing Friday. "I think the debtors have a very difficult task ahead of them to convince me there are absolutely and positively no facts that would not result in liability under California law," Gross said. The Dodgers are entitled to make their case, however, Gross said. He set March 7 for a hearing on whether he should yield to the Los Angeles Superior Court and, if necessary, March 21 for a hearing on whether Stow's claim against the Dodgers should be dismissed by the federal Bankruptcy Court.

In the well-worn form of Andy Roddick, a good bit of 1930s great Don Budge and his irreverent, long-deceased tennis coach have found their way to the regal grounds of Wimbledon. Roddick's thrill-ride swing to the men's final, where he meets five-time champion and longtime nemesis Roger Federer today, has been a monumental surprise; not only to seasoned observers who assumed he had long ago played his best tennis, but to Roddick himself.

San Francisco Giants fan Bryan Stow tried to escape a violent man attacking him and his friends outside Dodger Stadium, but his assailant pursued and assaulted him again, according to a court document filed Monday that provides new details about the beating that left Stow with serious brain injuries. Prosecutors allege that Louie Sanchez shoved Stow and punched one of Stow's friends after the Dodgers' opening day game against the Giants. After the assault, Stow, who was dressed in a Giants shirt, continued to walk with his friends toward the edge of the stadium parking lot, with Sanchez and his friend, Marvin Norwood, in pursuit, prosecutors wrote.
