A federal appeals court heard arguments Friday over whether the securities fraud conviction against former drug company CEO Martin Shkreli, known as "Pharma Bro," should be thrown out. Defense attorney Mark Baker urged the court in New York City to overturn a 2017 guilty verdict for Shkreli, claiming that the trial judge gave confusing instructions to jurors before their deliberations about whether it needed to find his client intentionally set out to cheat investors. Baker noted that the same jury also acquitted Shkreli on related wire fraud charges, saying, "The split verdict speaks volumes." Assistant U.S. Attorney Alixandra Smith argued...

NYC to give up $1.3 million rather than follow abortion rule

New York City will give up $1.3 million in federal funds rather than comply with a Trump administration rule that bars federally funded clinics from making abortion referrals. Mayor Bill de Blasio said Friday that the city's public hospital system will cease participating in the federal Title X program as long as the policy is in effect. The rule announced in February bans taxpayer-funded clinics from making abortion referrals and prohibits clinics that receive federal money from sharing office space with abortion providers. More than 20 states and organizations have challenged the policy in court. De Blasio, who is running...

Lawsuit seeks to block Georgia law that bans most abortions

A federal lawsuit filed Friday in Atlanta is the latest effort by abortion providers and advocacy groups to challenge a wave of restrictive abortion laws passed in conservative-controlled state legislatures. Lawyers with the American Civil Liberties Union, Planned Parenthood and the Center for Reproductive Rights filed the lawsuit challenging a new Georgia law that effectively bans abortions about six weeks into a pregnancy. The lawsuit, filed on behalf of Georgia abortion providers and an advocacy group, asks a judge to prevent the law from taking effect and to declare it unconstitutional. Otherwise, the law becomes enforceable Jan. 1. The law...

Similarly, the incidence of knee arthritis is as much as 15 times higher than in the West.Overuse of the knees in terms of squatting, lifestyle changes, obesity, injuries and also a decrease in bone mineral density in post menopausal women are some of the major causes. Age related degeneration is also one of the major reasons for the increasing incidence of knee arthritis even as life expectancy has increased, explains Dr M. Hari Sharma, Senior Consultant Orthopaedic surgeon at Apollo Hospitals....

For their analysis, they used data on 180,216 women from the UK Biobank and 228,951 women from the Breast Cancer Association Consortium. They report that they found "consistent evidence" of morning preference having a...

Alabama woman charged in fetal death, her shooter goes free

An Alabama district attorney's office hasn't decided whether to prosecute a woman indicted for manslaughter after she lost her fetus when she was shot during a fight. Marshae Jones was five months pregnant when 23-year-old Ebony Jemison shot her in the stomach during a December altercation over the fetus's father, authorities said. Jemison was initially charged with manslaughter, but a Jefferson County grand jury declined to indict her after police said an investigation determined Jones started the fight, and Jemison ultimately fired in self-defense. Jones, 28, was indicted by that same grand jury Wednesday. The indictment stated Jones did "intentionally...
