"U.S. urges new hearing in death penalty case": Lyle Denniston has this post at "SCOTUSblog."

"Media's drinking water offers a double Camp Justice chill; A look at the Pentagon media machine at the first U.S. war-crimes tribunal reveals a $32,000 travel morgue that chills reporters' drinking water": Carol Rosenberg has this article today in The Miami Herald.

And she also has a news update headlined "Experts open second week of driver's trial."

"Federal appeals court to review Va. abortion ban": The Richmond Times-Dispatch has a news update that begins, "The full 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals will rehear a challenge to Virginia's ban on a late-term abortion procedure. On two occasions a three-judge panel of the same court ruled 2-1 that the challenge was successful -- that the Virginia ban on what opponents call 'partial-birth abortion' was unconstitutional."

The Associated Press reports that "Full court will consider Virginia ban on 'partial-birth abortion.'"

And at "SCOTUSblog," Lyle Denniston has a post titled "A new test of a 'partial-birth' abortion ban."

My earlier coverage of the Fourth Circuit's most recent three-judge panel ruling in the case appears here, here, and here.

"Lawsuit filed against new DC gun regulations": The Associated Press provides a report that begins, "The plaintiff in the Supreme Court case that struck down Washington's 32-year-old handgun ban filed a new federal lawsuit Monday, alleging the city's new gun regulations still violate an individual's right to own a gun for self-defense."

Update: At "SCOTUSblog," Lyle Denniston has a post titled "New Second Amendment case in D.C."

"Long prison terms for 2 Border Patrol agents upheld": The Houston Chronicle provides a news update that begins, "A federal appeals court today upheld long prison sentences given to a pair of U.S. Border Patrol agents who shot an unarmed drug smuggler near El Paso and lied to superiors about it."

And The Associated Press reports that "5th Circuit upholds prison terms for border agents."

My earlier coverage of today's Fifth Circuit ruling appears in the post immediately below.
Posted at 05:40 PM by Howard Bashman

Fifth Circuit affirms in large measure the convictions of two border patrol agents alleged to have shot a drug smuggler from behind as he fled on foot toward the Mexican border: The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit issued this ruling today in the controversial case of United States v. Ignacio Ramos and Jose Compean. Today's ruling affirms the agents' convictions on seven counts of the indictment but vacates their convictions on another five counts.
Posted at 02:30 PM by Howard Bashman

"A Prosecutor Is Called 'Relentless'": Today in The New York Sun, Josh Gerstein has an article that begins, "A federal prosecutor who has led a series of investigations into Islamic militants and Muslim groups based in Virginia, Gordon Kromberg, may soon be facing a trial of sorts himself, if defense lawyers get their way."
Posted at 12:10 PM by Howard Bashman

"Why It Was a Great Victory": In the August 14, 2008 issue of The New York Review of Books, Professor Ronald Dworkin will have an essay that begins, "Boumediene v. Bush is one of the most important Supreme Court decisions in recent years."
