Virginia fraternity chapter says it will sue Rolling Stone

NEW YORK (Reuters) – The University of Virginia fraternity chapter at the center of Rolling Stone magazine's retracted article “A Rape on Campus” said on Monday that it planned to sue the magazine for what it called “reckless” reporting that hurt its reputation. The chapter of Phi Kappa Psi said in a statement that it would pursue all available legal action, a day after a team from the Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism concluded the magazine failed to follow basic journalistic safeguards in publishing the story.

Accused Boston bomber followed brother’s lead, defense argues

By Scott Malone and Elizabeth Barber BOSTON (Reuters) – Accused Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev followed his older brother's lead in carrying out the 2013 bombing that killed three people, rather than acting on his own motivation, one of his attorneys argued on Monday. Tsarnaev, 21, could be sentenced to death if a jury finds him guilty of carrying out the April 15, 2013, attack and fatally shooting a police officer three days later as he and his brother, 26-year-old Tamerlan Tsarnaev, tried to flee the city. Following the prosecution's closing argument, that the ethnic Chechen defendant was an extremist who had “wanted to punish America” with the bombing attack, Tsarnaev's lawyers argued that he had been in the thrall of his older brother. Defense attorney Judith Clarke, who opened the trial last month by admitting that her client had committed all the crimes of which he is accused, repeated that assertion on Monday.

Exclusive: Safety concerns rise at big Texas refinery a decade after disaster

By Erwin Seba TEXAS CITY, Texas (Reuters) – U.S. workplace regulators are probing accident data reported by Marathon Petroleum Corp at its huge Texas refinery, as laborers and union representatives raise concerns that safety practices implemented a decade ago following a deadly explosion are being rolled back. The inspection by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration at Marathon’s Galveston Bay Refinery, where the worst U.S. refining accident of the last 30 years occurred under former owner BP Plc, came “in response to a complaint regarding the recording of workplace injuries and illnesses,” a Labor Department official said. BP sold the plant, which used to be known as the BP Texas City refinery, to Marathon in 2013 as part of a $2.4 billion deal. Marathon, the country’s third-largest refiner with seven plants nationwide, confirmed “OSHA initiated an investigation regarding the proper classification of a handful of incidents.” OSHA investigations are fairly common at the nation’s 142 refineries and the launch of a probe does not necessarily mean the agency believes there has been wrongdoing.
