A suburban Detroit high school settled a lawsuit with the American Civil Liberties Union, allowing an honor student who practices witchcraft to wear the symbols of her religion to class. Lincoln Park High School, in a blue-collar community south of Detroit, changed its policy so that Crystal Siefferly, 17, can wear a pentagram, a symbol important to her Wicca religion. The school had banned witches, white supremacists and Satanists, as well as black nail polish, vampire makeup and pentagrams.

Pfizer Inc. must defend a lawsuit in which people claim its diabetes drug Rezulin damaged their livers. A federal appeals court in New York reinstated a case dismissed last year in a lower court.

Pfizer did not immediately comment.

Former Michigan State coach George Perles apologized for suing the university over his firing and said he is dropping all legal action against the school. Perles said he was upset and frustrated at negotiations over his dismissal when he had his attorneys file the lawsuit in August. "I made an error in judgment and filed suit. I should have had enough patience and waited until the process was finished," Perles said. * Michigan might find itself down to quarterback No.

Toyota has spent well over $1 billion settling lawsuits involving unintended acceleration, but the world's largest automaker still faces hundreds of other cases awaiting trial. First up is a suit filed by the heirs of Noriko Uno, a 66-year-old bookkeeper who was killed when her Toyota Camry unexpectedly sped to 100 mph on a city street in Upland in 2009. Jury selection started Monday in the Los Angeles County Superior Court lawsuit that argues Toyota Motor Corp. should have had a fail-safe system that enables the brakes to override the accelerator.

The minutes ticked by.
