Dutch supreme court bans pedophile group

In this Saturday, June 29, 2013 file photo, British musician Paul Weller performs at the Hard Rock Calling Festival in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, London. Paul Weller has won a privacy lawsuit against a newspaper that published paparazzi pictures of the singer's children. The former front man of The Jam and The Style Council sued Associated Newspapers over images of his daughter Dylan and twin sons John Paul and Bowie that appeared on its MailOnline website. Dylan was 16 and the twins 10 months old when the pictures, taken during a shopping trip in Santa Monica, were published in 2012. Judge James Dingemans ruled Wednesday that although publishing the pictures was legal in California, they "were published in circumstances where Dylan, Bowie and John Paul had a reasonable expectation of privacy." He awarded a total of 10,000 pounds ($17,000) to the children. MailOnline said it was "deeply disappointed" by the ruling and intended to appeal. (Photo by Jonathan Short/Invision/AP, file)

Paul Weller’s children win lawsuit over pictures

Former deputy speaker of the House of Commons Nigel Evans arrives at Preston Crown Court, England, Thursday, April 10, 2014. Evans has been cleared of rape and sexual assault after a trial that threatened to end a high-flying political career. Nigel Evans, a Conservative first elected to Parliament in 1992, was arrested last year. Prosecutors alleged he used his political position to sexually assault seven young men between 2002 and 2013, some of them inside the Houses of Parliament. Evans accused the men of making up their allegations or exaggerating moments of "drunken over-familiarity." A jury at Preston Crown Court cleared him Thursday of nine counts of rape, sexual assault and indecent assault. (AP Photo/PA, Peter Byrne)
