Concert pianist James Rhodes, right, and actor Benedict Cumberbatch leave the Supreme Court in London, Wednesday, May 20, 2015. Britain’s Supreme Court has ruled that a pianist may publish a memoir detailing sexual abuse he suffered as a child, despite his ex-wife’s privacy concerns. His ex-wife had argued that their 12-year-old son suffers from a number of health issues and could be caused serious harm by the publication. Supported by his friend, the actor Benedict Cumberbatch, outside the court, he called the ruling “a victory for freedom of speech.” (Stefan Rousseau/PA via AP)

UK Supreme Court approves pianist’s sexual abuse memoir

Alondra Diaz Garcia arrives for a court hearing in Los Reyes, Mexico, Tuesday, May 12, 2015. The teenage girl at the center of an international custody case won’t be sent to the United States until Mexican authorities confirm her identity through DNA testing. The search for the 13-year-old attracted wide attention last month after a Mexican court erroneously sent another girl named Alondra to Texas in a case of mistaken identity. Dorotea Garcia, who lives in Houston, has been searching for her daughter since 2007 when the girl allegedly was taken into Mexico by her father. (Miguel Garcia Tinoco via AP)
