Accused Boston bomber's lawyers challenge jury-selection process

Courtroom sketch shows Boston Marathon bombing suspect Tsarnaev during the jury selection process in his trial at the federal courthouse in BostonLawyers for the accused Boston Marathon bomber filed on Thursday a last-gasp request to dismiss the charges against their client or delay the start of the trial next week, contending that court officials had violated their own rules during jury selection. Attorneys for Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, who is accused of carrying out the largest mass-casualty attack on U.S. soil since Sept. 11, 2001, argued in a court filing that after randomly assigning numbers to the more than 1,350 people who reported for initial selection early last month, the court re-ordered the jurors based on arrival time. They also contend that people who live within the Boston city limits and those under 30 and over 70 were disproportionately under-represented. The final phase of jury selection is set to take place on Tuesday, when prosecutors and defense attorneys will whittle down the field of about 70 provisionally qualified jurors to 18 people, including 12 jurors and six alternates.

Supreme Court protesters say no plans to disrupt Obamacare case
By Lawrence Hurley WASHINGTON (Reuters) - An activist group that has twice disrupted U.S. Supreme Court proceedings in the past year says it does not intend to stage similar protests when the justices hear a major case next week that could gut President Barack Obama's signature healthcare law. Kai Newkirk, a spokesman for the group 99Rise, said in an email that "we are not planning anything" in relation to the Obamacare case being argued next Wednesday or the court's other big case of the year on whether states can ban gay marriage, which will be heard in April. Two of eight protesters arrested after a Jan. 21 disruption pleaded guilty to misdemeanor charges in District of Columbia Superior Court on Thursday and will each face a sentence of five days in jail, according to Newkirk. Disruptions inside the Supreme Court are rare.
No charges for truck driver in California train wreck

An aerial view shows the scene of a double-decker Metrolink train derailment in Oxnard, CaliforniaBy Dana Feldman VENTURA, Calif. (Reuters) - A truck driver whose vehicle was struck by a Southern California commuter train, triggering a wreck in which 50 people were hurt, will not be charged at this time in connection with the derailment, Ventura County prosecutors said on Thursday. Jose Alejandro Sanchez-Ramirez, 54, was found walking and "in distress" more than a mile (1.5 km) from the crash site in Oxnard on Tuesday and was later taken into custody on suspicion of felony hit-and-run, police said. Sanchez-Ramirez, who had been scheduled to appear in court on Thursday, was expected to be released following the decision by prosecutors not to file charges, at least for now. "District Attorney Gregory D. Totten announced today that no charges will be filed at this time against Jose Alejandro Sanchez-Ramirez in connection with the Feb. 24, 2015, Metrolink grade-crossing collision and train derailment in Oxnard, California," the Ventura County District Attorney's Office said in a statement.
