A federal appeals court upheld an injunction against President Obama's new deportation in a ruling Tuesday that marks the second major legal setback for an administration that had insisted its actions were legal.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit ruled in favor of Texas, which had sued to stop the amnesty, on all key points, finding that Mr. Obama's amnesty likely broke the law governing how big policies are to be written.

"The public interest favors maintenance of the injunction," the judges wrote in the majority opinion.

A plaque and a bronze dove dedicated to Michael Brown Jr. were installed Thursday in the Ferguson, Missouri, sidewalk not far from where he was fatally shot by police, taking the place of makeshift memorials of stuffed animals that were removed Wednesday. The bronze plaque bears his birth date, the date he was killed and a depiction of Brown. Funding was arranged by the family, a Ferguson spokesman said. "I'd like the memory of Michael Brown to be a happy one," the memorial states. The plaque and dove replace makeshift memorials in the street that had been judged a traffic hazard. read more


A study published in the journal Science that showed people's views on gay marriage could change simply by meeting homosexuals has been retracted following revelations that its data was faked. According to the study, people who were against gay marriage could have their opinions shift dramatically after spending just a few minutes speaking with a gay person who canvassed their neighborhood promoting gay marriage.The study also claimed that there was a spillover effect, making not just the people themselves more pro-gay but also other people who lived in the same household. Columbia University political science professor Donald Green's retraction follows revelations that his co-author Michael LaCour, a graduate assistant at UCLA, allegedly faked data for the study. "I am deeply embarrassed by this turn of events and apologize to the editors, reviewers, and readers of Science," Green said. read more


A California man who called for two prostitutes to come to his hotel room said he collapsed to the floor and had a panic attack when he saw it was two of his daughters.
Father-of-ten, Titus McDonalds of Los Angeles, said he was having marital problems and went to Las Vegas to blow off steam.
"I have never gotten a prostitute in my life," McDonalds told Las Vegas Weekly. "I swear to Christ. What are the odds it was my own flesh and blood that showed up? I think this is Lord's way of bitch-slapping me."
His daughters, who he hadn't seen in years, fled the room upon recognizing their father. Once McDonalds had recovered from the initial shock, he found his daughters, aged 20 and 23, in a casino bar.
