WASHINGTON: ‘ Supreme Court Denies Gay-Marriage Appeals in Five States ‘

#AceBreakingNews – Washington) – The Supreme Court has turned away appeals from five states seeking to prohibit same-sex marriages, paving the way for an immediate expansion of gay and lesbian unions. 

The justices on Monday did not comment in rejecting appeals from Indiana, Oklahoma, Utah, Virginia and Wisconsin. 

The court’s order immediately ends delays on marriage in those states. Couples in six other states should be able to get married in short order. 

That would make same-sex marriage legal in 30 states and the District of Columbia. 

But the justices have left unresolved for now the question of same-sex marriage nationwide.

UNITED STATES: ‘ Self-Guided and Unmanned Swarm Boats Ready to Join Navy ‘

#AceWorldNews – UNITED STATES (Norfolk) – Self-guided unmanned patrol boats that can leave warships they’re protecting and swarm and attack potential threats on the water could join the Navy’s fleet within a year, defence officials say, adding the new technology could one day help stop attacks like the deadly 2000 bombing of the USS Cole off Yemen.

The Arlington-based Office of Naval Research demonstrated the autonomous swarm boat technology over two weeks in August on the James River near Fort Eustis in Virginia – not far from one of the Navy’s largest fleet concentration areas.

It said the Navy simulated a transit through a strait, just like the routine passage of U.S. warships through the Strait of Hormuz in the Persian Gulf.

UNITED STATES: ‘ Ex-Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and his Wife Convicted on Charges of Corruption, Fraud and Bribery ‘

#AceBreakingNewsUNITED STATES (Richmond) – September 04 – Former Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen have been convicted on a range of corruption, fraud and bribery charges, after the couple accepted more than $165,000 of gifts and loans from a businessman.


The jury's decision marks a stunning fall from grace for the former Republican governor, who once was considered a possible running mate for presidential candidate Mitt Romney in 2012.

Both Bob and Maureen McDonnell bowed their heads and wept as a stream of “guilty’s” kept coming from the court clerk.

The governor was accused of doing favours for a wealthy vitamin executive, Jonnie Williams, in exchange for the gifts and loans. The husband and wife were found guilty on most counts against them.

A federal jury in Richmond convicted Bob McDonnell of 11 of the 13 counts he faced; Maureen McDonnell was convicted of nine of the 13 counts she had faced.

Sentencing was scheduled for Jan. 6. Both bowed their heads and wept as a chorus of “guilty” kept coming from the court clerk.

` Michigan’s Ban on `Same Sex-Marriage ‘ is Ruled is Unconstitutional ‘

#AceWorldNews – MICHIGAN – March 21 – A federal judge struck down on Friday Michigan’s ban on same-sex marriage, saying the law passed by voters a decade ago is unconstitutional. US district court Judge Bernard Friedman’s ruling, however, does not make clear whether the state can file an appeal.

Nor is it clear whether marriages can begin immediately, given the timing of the decision came after most county clerk offices in the state were closed.

Seventeen states and the District of Columbia have legalized same-sex marriage.

Since December, bans on gay marriage have been overturned in Texas, Utah, Oklahoma, and Virginia, though appeals to those decisions have put the cases on hold.

`Federal Judge Rules Virginia’s Same-Sex Marriage Ban Ruled Unconstitutional’

#AceWorldNews says that a federal judge ruled late Thursday that Virginia’s same-sex marriage ban is unconstitutional. The state’s “marriage laws unconstitutionally deny Virginia’s gay and lesbian citizens the fundamental freedom to choose to marry,” the ruling states, according to Virginia Attorney General Mark Herring.

The “laws deny Plaintiffs their rights to due process and equal protection guaranteed under the 14th Amendment” of the US Constitution,” the judge wrote. Herring said the court has stayed the execution of the injunction pending an appeal. Prior to the ruling, 17 states, plus the District of Columbia, had legalized same-sex marriage in the US.

” Teen Girl found `Tweeting Nude Selfie’s’ has been Charged with a Child Porn Felony”

#AceNewsServices says `Teen girl gets child porn charge over Nude Selfie’s

A 16-year-old Virginia girl was charged with a child porn felony for tweeting her own naked pictures.

The girl, whose name has not been revealed, was charged as a juvenile with“possession, reproduction, distribution, solicitation and facilitation of child pornography,” Stephanie Williams-Ortery of James City County Police told the Huffington Post.

“The young lady acknowledged that she had posted the pictures of herself [and] the mother acknowledged that the photos were of her daughter,” the officer said.

It’s not clear how many lewd pictures are involved in the case, but they were posted sometime around January 30. The police were warned by an anonymous tip.

Being a juvenile, the girl is not required to register as a sex offender under Virginia law. But she would have to comply with a court order, which is likely to tell her and her parents to take a sexting education program.

Some people in the community don’t agree with the harsh charge brought against the teen, according to local broadcaster WAVY.

“I don’t think she should be charged with child pornography, because she is a child herself, but if she was 18 or older of course,” said one local parent, Emily Altman.

“That is distributing,child pornography?” said another parent, Dometre Mobley.“She is a child, I don’t know what to think of that really.”

Order to Lavabit to Hand Over Email Records – Unsealed by Federal Judge in Virginia

The records in the case, which is now being argued at the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, were unsealed today by a federal judge in Alexandria, Virginia. They confirm much of what had been suspected about the conflict between the pro-privacy e-mail company and the federal government, which led to Lavabit voluntarily closing in August rather than compromise the security it promised users.

The filings show that Lavabit was served on June 28 with a so-called “pen register” order requiring it to record, and provide the government with, the e-mail “from” and “to” lines on every e-mail, as well as the IP address used to access the mailbox. Because they provide only metadata, pen register orders can be obtained without “probable cause” that the target has committed a crime.
