A Florida Islamic group announced on Monday it has filed a formal notice with the FBI that it plans to sue the agency over the death of Ibragim Todashev, a friend of one of the Boston Marathon bomb suspects. Todashev, a Chechen immigrant, was shot dead in an Orlando apartment in May 2013 during FBI questioning over his links with the Boston bombing suspects. The notice was filed by the Council on American-Islamic Relations Florida (CAIR-Florida) on behalf of Todashev's parents.
(Reuters) - A federal judge on Monday ruled Nebraska's ban on gay marriage unconstitutional in a decision that could allow same-sex couples to marry in the state within a week. U.S. District Judge Joseph Bataillon issued a preliminary injunction in the case brought by seven same-sex couples in the state, calling Nebraska's ban an "unabashedly gender-specific infringement of the equal rights of its citizens." Bataillon denied a state request to stay his decision but said his injunction would take effect on March 9 to assuage Nebraska officials' concerns of possible administrative turmoil. The Nebraska Attorney General's Office was studying the decision and was expected to have a statement later. Nebraska voters in 2000 adopted a state constitutional amendment that defines marriage as only between one man and one woman and does not recognize civil unions, domestic partnerships or similar relationships for same-sex couples.
