Prosecutors must decide by noon on Monday whether to charge four men held by Minneapolis police in connection with the Nov. 23 wounding of five people protesting the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man. Minneapolis police, who are working with the FBI, have said they are not seeking any more suspects in the shooting of the protesters, who were demonstrating outside a police station against the fatal shooting on Nov. 15 of Jamar Clark, 24.
The U.S. Supreme Court on Monday rejected an appeal by Covidien LP seeking to restore a $176 million patent infringement verdict against Johnson & Johnson subsidiary Ethicon Inc. In refusing to hear the case, the high court left in place a December 2014 ruling by the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit that threw out a judge’s finding that Ethicon had infringed upon Covidien's patents for surgical cutting tools. Covidien is owned by Medtronic Plc. In a separate patent case, the court declined to hear Biolitec AG's challenge to a $70 million contempt finding relating to a patent dispute the company had with AngioDynamics Inc. The court's refusal to take the case means a March ruling by the 1st U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in favor of AngioDynamics remains intact.
By Hilary Russ and Edward Krudy NEW YORK (Reuters) - Private money is expected to fund part of a $20 billion rail tunnel project linking New Jersey with Manhattan, according to a senior executive at the national rail network Amtrak. Amtrak's plan to build a new two-track tunnel under the Hudson River and revamp its rail infrastructure in the region got a boost earlier this month when the federal government agreed to foot half of the bill. New Jersey and New York are on the hook for the rest, but financial hurdles both states face suggest they could try to tap the plan's private funding option to meet their commitment or get their bi-state transportation authority to do that.
