(Reuters) - A federal judge on Thursday reaffirmed her earlier ruling that same-sex couples in Alabama have a right to wed under the Constitution, but she put the ruling on hold until the U.S. Supreme Court issues a landmark decision on gay marriage. U.S. District Judge Callie Granade in January overturned the state's ban on same-sex marriage, in a ruling that went into effect the following month and led probate judges throughout much of the state to begin issuing licenses to the couples. In March, the Alabama Supreme Court ordered probate judges to stop issuing marriage licenses.
EU regulator confirms recommendation to suspend drugs over flawed studies
(Reuters) - The European Medicines Agency confirmed on Friday its recommendation to suspend a number of medicines that were granted EU approval based on clinical studies conducted at Indian firm GVK Biosciences' facility in Hyderabad, India. The Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) said a re-examination of the medicines, prompted by a request from marketing authorization holders for seven of the drugs, revealed that concerns about the reliability of the clinical studies remained. Europe's drug regulator recommended suspension of the medicines in January, a month after France, Germany, Belgium and Luxembourg suspended the sale of 25 generic drugs that were approved based on trials conducted by GVK Biosciences.
Washington quadruple slaying suspect arrested in city
By Ian Simpson WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The suspect in the killing of a Washington businessman and three others found in a torched mansion last week was arrested late on Thursday, police said. The Washington D.C. Metropolitan Police Department said the suspect, identified as 34-year-old Maryland man Daron Dylon Wint, was arrested in the city's northeast just before midnight local time by a U.S. Marshals Service-led task force. The bodies of businessman Savvas Savopoulos, his wife, son and housekeeper, were found inside the multi-million dollar house in a neighborhood near Vice President Joe Biden's official residence after a fire that police called "very suspicious." Earlier on Thursday, Police Chief Cathy Lanier said Wint was believed to be in Brooklyn.
