The FBI served new subpoenas on the Central Basin Municipal Water District this month, expanding a corruption investigation that began with a raid on state Sen. Ronald S. Calderon's office in June. One subpoena sought documents related to a groundwater storage plan that was the subject of long-running legal battle in southeast L.A. County. Investigators also are seeking personnel records for the water district's former general manager, Art Aguilar, and two elected directors, Art Chacon and Robert Apodaca.

The 47-year-old royal, known as Infanta Cristina, is accused of having knowledge of or possible involvement in alleged corruption by her husband, Iñaki Urdangarin. He is a former Olympic handball champion being investigated for allegedly embezzling millions of dollars in public funds through sports charities he ran. The stay comes two days after Cristina became the first direct descendant of a Spanish monarch to be summoned in a criminal case.

New York's top prosecutor has subpoenaed two power companies as part of an investigation into whether they adequately prepared for and responded to Superstorm Sandy, which knocked out power to more than 8 million customers at its peak, including more than 2 million in New York. Atty. Gen. Eric Schneiderman is seeking records concerning how the Long Island Power Authority and Consolidated Edison prepared for the storm, the Associated Press reported. Schneiderman's inquiry is separate from a state commission, initiated Tuesday by Gov. Andrew Cuomo, that is charged with reviewing how utility companies prepare for and respond to storms -- and how to make those efforts better.
