A 24-year-old Death Row inmate has asked the Mississippi Supreme Court to overturn his sentence, claiming prosecutors should not be allowed to use the same evidence to get both a capital murder conviction and a death sentence. The man’s defense attorney said some additional evidence is necessary to justify a sentence harsher than life in prison, while the attorney general’s office told justices that Mississippi has repeatedly held that the same evidence used to convict a defendant can be used to determine the penalty … A review of 51 death-penalty cases involving Mexicans must take place by the United States, the world court has ordered. The defendants have said their right to consular assistance was violated. The ruling could have repercussions in cases of other foreign citizens held in U.S. prisons who have been denied help from their governments … United Airlines, which is in Chapter 11 proceedings, must honor its multimillion-dollar lease at Denver International Airport, a federal bankruptcy judge has ruled. The lease backed $261.4 million in special facilities bonds which the airport sold for United; the payments are repayment to the bondholders … Music swappers in Canada got a break from the federal court, which held that Internet service providers cannot be forced to turn over their identities. The ruling threw a wrench into the recording industry’s ongoing efforts to crack down on the practice. At issue were the names of 29 suspected music uploaders who offered the music to others for downloading. The court said simply downloading a song or having a file available doesn’t constitute copyright infringement. The Canadian Recording Industry has promised to appeal.
