Antonin Scalia finally caught a break from pesky questions about his recent hunting trip with Vice President Dick Cheney. This time, the Los Angeles Times wanted to know about the justice’s 2001 pheasant hunting trip arranged by University of Kansas School of Law Dean Stephen R. McAllister. The trip came midway between two cases that McAllister presented to the high court. Scalia, who ruled for McAllister’s client in both cases, released a statement defending the trip … Death by hanging won’t come anytime soon for Shoko Asahara, predicts one observer. That seems a safe bet, considering it took a Tokyo District Court nearly eight years to convict the Japanese cult leader of multiple murder charges, including the 1995 sarin attacks. One reason for delay: Japanese courts hold hearings no more than once a week … The maker of the world’s top-selling hypertension drug scored a huge victory Friday. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit overturned a lower court decision to rule that Pfizer’s Norvasc would be infringed by a generic version produced by Indian drugmaker Dr. Reddy’s. Pfizer’s patent for Norvasc runs to 2007. The drug produced $4.34 billion in sales last year … Why did the assistant DA climb on the bed? To get to the jury, of course. In fact, climbing was the least of it as Harris County prosecutors staged a dramatic portrayal of Jeffery Wright’s death. First, the attorneys dragged Wright’s bloodstained mattress into the courtroom. Then, Assistant DA Paul Doyle stretched out on the bed and allowed himself to be bound with neckties and bathrobe sashes. Finally, Assistant DA Kelly Siegler straddled Doyle and made repeated stabbing motions with the alleged murder weapon. Jeffery’s wife, Susan, is on trial for allegedly knifing him almost 200 times. – Lori Patel
