Ryan Fien can't keep a straight face as he details how perfectly his life seems to be going these days. His grin becomes a chuckle and Fien shakes his head, almost in disbelief. Hard to explain how quickly things have changed.

The Supreme Court intervened again Monday in a lawsuit against a former George W. Bush administration official, agreeing to decide whether former Atty. Gen. John Ashcroft is entirely shielded from claims that he misused the law to arrest terrorism suspects under false pretenses.
