Plea change likely in gun case linked to marathon

This March 14, 2014 file photo shows Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia speaking in Atlanta. Supreme Court opinions are rarely susceptible to the kind of fact-checking that reporters usually employ on politics. But Scalia’s hearty dissent in an environmental case on Tuesday contained such a glaring error of fact _ misreporting an earlier case in which Scalia himself wrote the majority opinion _ that the justice changed the opinion and the court quietly posted the corrected version on its website without notifying anyone of what had happened.

Conviction of bombing suspect’s friend came slowly

In this file image made from video released by WikiLeaks on Oct. 11, 2013, former National Security Agency systems analyst Edward Snowden speaks in Moscow. Faced with congressional inaction to curtail the NSA?s bulk collection of Americans? telephone records, civil liberties groups are looking to cases already in the courts as a quicker way to clarify just what surveillance powers the government should have. Three appeals courts are hearing challenges to the National Security Agency phone records program, creating the potential for an eventual Supreme Court review. Judges in lower courts are grappling with the admissibility of evidence gained through the NSA?s warrantless surveillance. The flurry of activity follows revelations last year by former contractor Edward Snowden of once-secret intelligence collection programs. (AP Photo, File)

This combination of file photos shows brothers Tamerlan, left, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, suspects in the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15, 2013. Tamerlan Tsarnaev died after a gunfight with police several days later, and Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, was captured and is held in a federal prison on charges of using a weapon of mass destruction.
